The Hidden Story in Nostradamus' Prophecies.
December 6th 2015: At last I am free to write down the ideas I have developed over the last eighteen months. During that time I have been applying my analysis methods to each and every verse. As each part of the picture held within Nostradamus' Prophecies emerged I grew increasingly impatient to use the background my work provided and write these self-same stories using mostly Nostradamus' texts and prophecies.
But there are other goals of equal importance that I wanted to present especially those explaining why Nostradamus concentrated on a time five hundred years in the future. Again I knew such an explanation should ideally come from Nostradamus' own writings and not from the bias of the person presenting his writings.
Another goal that was waiting for me was to explain the enigmas in the 1558 Epistle to Henry which accompanied the first publication of the last three hundred of his nine hundred and forty two (942) quatrains. Those enigmas include its two chronologies for the Christian story which have the unusual property they don't agree with each other. And then there is the mish-mash presented in the descriptions that followed these calendars. Nostradamus was quite open about his making his work obscure and at the end of the first of these calendars he says:
And for this [reason], Sire, by this discourse I present these predictions with confusion as to when they will be and the event involved for the enumeration of time that follows has no more than a little consistency in it. 1558 Henry Epistle (HEE19A)
Any explanation for his actions should once again rely on the wording contained within Nostradamus' Prophecies and his accompanying documents. One of the powerful aspects of Nostradamus' writing that achieves this end lies in continuous simple story lines set out in his 1555 Preface and 1558 Epistle.
But now I want to reach out and declare happenings of common interest through incomprehensible and perplexing sentences about future causes. The most urgent are those in which I perceive some human mutation 1555 Cesar Preface (PCE2)
From these we see that Nostradamus' story lines are about changes in the fortunes of humankind on a scale never before seen.
I will show that these story lines are detailed and that they involve the mutations of the human gene brought about by man's own efforts. Some of the impact arises from genetic material carried on space objects such as asteroids. And Nostradamus' words tell us these events coincide with vast flood events that are on a scale hitherto unknown.
..and also I find that letters shall undergo such a huge and unparalleled loss and I find that the world before the universal conflagration will experience many deluges with inundations so high that there will be no soil that is not covered by water; and this will be for such a long time that all would be lost except for the records of enographies and topographies. Also before and after such inundations, in most countries, the rains will be in demand, and from the heavens will fall a great abundance of fire and white-hot stones, so nothing shall remain that is not consumed. And all this is to occur, in brief, before the last conflagration. 1555 Cesar Preface (PCE8)
Human ability to deliberately mutate genes has become possible only in our DNA-informed era and this fact provides the reasons for Nostradamus concentrating his mutation-tales on the period from 2000CE and beyond.
But there is an even bigger story in Nostradamus writings and that tale is traceable in his texts once the remarkable concepts it embraces are recognised. It is the story of religious fanaticism by small groups of men who bring about their sect's long desired resurrection of Christ using modern means. Such attempts wouldn't be unusual since much of science has been taken up by causes who see power, control and wealth coming from scientific discoveries whose far reaching effects were unanticipated by its initiators. I will show in this work that a major theme of Nostradamus involves a sect that clones their own version of Jesus. This single theme may well be the main reason Nostradamus began his works but I believe his findings like that of many investigators of history and nature were not what he had originally expected. So the ciphers in the text for this story include 'Antichrist' and 'Satan' and his story evolves beyond a legendary dream to a consistent modern vision of technological reality.
Once again Satan will be bound, universal peace will be established among men, and the Church of Jesus Christ will be delivered from all tribulations.. 1558 Henry Epistle (HEE24b)
The religious theme is a powerful story line for Nostradamus. It begins with ancient issues over the nature of Christ that are integral to the wars around a dynasty that claims its leader is born using DNA derived from Jesus. Such claims are anathema to some and justification to others and such deep divisons within the Christian churches make them vulnerable to all its enemies. None of this benefits humankind nor helps us overcome the troubles Nostradamus suggests our race has manufactured.
It is my intention to write these story lines within a more easily read form than supplied by Nostradamus while using the text from his verses and other writings. I will also include evidence and discussion regarding his methods such as planetary locations which he frequently used to indicate the period each verse covers.
I have composed books of prophecies each containing a hundred quatrains of astronomic prophecies, which I have intentionally arranged a little obscurely. They contain perpetual predictions for (the period) from now until the year 3797. 1555 Cesar preface (PCE6)
In the preceding quote from Nostradamus' Preface he makes a statement that explains why his work has remained hidden for 500 years.
I believe the words a little obscurely in this statement are critical for it only takes a little distortion to make the whole unreadable. By finding a means to link these verses I am able to show that there are large numbers of items that are continuous and that they form a progression based on date order. This means the works of Nostradamus are not as obscure as many believe.
My work has progressed to the point where I believe I can present the stories hidden in Nostradamus' Prophecies using the ciphers in the text of the verses and the Preface and Epistle that accompanied the first published editions. However my ability to present it in this way relies on the strength provided by my anagram analyses so it will be essential for me to include some of them in this presentation of mine but it will be done sparingly and only where it enhances understanding of his intent.
As a result of my work I believe that Nostradamus' claim that every verse has meaning is valid, however the reading of the verses still requires a modern reader to be aware that dramatic changes to landscapes were foreseen by Nostradamus, which means our current understanding of where seas, rivers, islands and mainlands lie has to be amended. Each of the essential aspects of the future geographical landscapes will also be covered in the chapters that follow.
In order to appreciate the scope of both Nostrdamus and my work it is helpful to visually see the skeletal structure of the prophecies. To this end I have constructed a roadmap of the stories so that each verse can be allotted its proper place and this is given below. Although its elements may undergo shifts in time / location as my own vision of the project advances these amendments will not change the basic premises nor the elements themselves.
