Nostradamus C10 Q17: The Queen whose mutant grand-child determines mankind's future.
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015
Nostradamus' text implies a difficult pregnancy by a Queen to which the
term Ergaste is applied. This term is given by Nostradamus and although
many interpreters have implied it means 'convict' in order to mould it to
the story of Marie Antoinette he would not have needed to use this obscure
word to achieve that end. That he put it as he did should tell us it has a
more significant meaning that applies directly to Ergaste as a name. Now
'Homo Ergaster' is the name given to a branch of the human line when 'Homo
Erectus' evolved in Africa. A similar thread as implied by this name can
be found in verses on his most important theme, the evolution of humanity
into a new species. This idea of branching is a strong theme amongst the
anagrams in this verse.
Another use of Ergaste was in Mysia in ancient Turkey and this was a place
name which Galen identified as near a site of glistening metal.
ERGASTERIA is a place in Mysia, on
the road from Pergamum to Cyzicus, and 440 stadia from Pergamum. 'Galen, in
proceeding to Ergasteria from Pergamum, remarked a great quantity of metallic
substance, which he calls molybdaena, Galen,de Medicam. Simp. 9.22.'
Minor, p. 271.)
This naming possibility with its elemental ties is
given some credibility by this verse's anagrams which include the name of
a rare element called Germanium and the concept of
linked to energy supplies. The anagrams build a picture that is consistent
with the grievous exposure of an Eastern Mediterranean royal family to
vapors given off by Soviet energy supplies. And Nostradamus provides the
name d'Angouleme in his text which would make this event part of his new
evolution / mutation, an event achieved by cloning of the Royal Bourbon
