The Unadulterated Nostradamus

These are the original Nostradamus writings in French. I don't know French but they are certainly critical in understanding and deciphering his messages. The author who translated them to text was skeptical of his powers and in fact it seems for him to be an exercise in debunking. But the text appears to be meticulous with close attention paid to e.g. diacritical marks. (Keep in mind that even these versions are subject to some distortions due to the possibilities of printer errors, Vatican Church machinations, etc.)

a. Introduction: _Conversations with Nostradamus_ by D.Cannon

This is a compilation and consolodation of key information from the books in the trilogy, _Conversations with Nostradamus_ by Dolores Cannon. Volumes I and II are available from America West Publishers, P.O. Box 986, Tehachapi, CA 93581, ph (805) 822-9655. Volume III is available from Ozark Mountain Publishers, P.O. Box 754, Huntsville, AR 72740-0754. A good introduction to the overall project and relationship between D.Cannon, her subjects, Nostradamus, and the quatrains can be found in chapter 7 of I.

This first version of this FAQ paraphrases the first book in her trilogy. Subsequent versions will incorporate material from the second two books. The FAQ consists mainly of paraphrases from the books (which are almost entirely the verbatim, directly channeled material from the D.Cannon subjects) with some "overview interpretations".

I have dealt exclusively with D.Cannon's books because they appear to me to be the utmost authoritative reference of all accumulated literature on the subject and at the same time its apocalyptic messages beg for further exposure beyond its current semi-obscurity. In particular I've tried to focus on future events, the "warnings", the secret conspiracies, plans, and weaponry of the Cabal and the Antichrist, and the relationships to electronic communications (although the latter is covered in the second and third books of the trilogy, not yet incorporated into this FAQ).

In this FAQ, the books of the D. Cannon trilogy are abbreviated in this text as "I-III" with page numbers. Quatrains are abbreviated "c[x]-[y]" where 'c' stands for "Century", [x] is the book, and [y] is the quatrain number. In some cases, particularly in the second and third books, Nostradmus went into a sort of "free association" mode where his messages were not directly related to particular quatrains, and in this case the page number in the trilogy alone is given.

Disclaimer

This is only a reorganization of material given elsewhere. I have strived to organize it into a more streamlined version than given in the original books. However, I strongly advise the serious reader to read the D.Cannon books. The major possibility for misinterpretation in this FAQ is in the time sequence of events, which Nostradamus tends to be obscure in defining, even in these new, direct, translations (he does not appear capable of discriminating the time resolution under a few years, and the dates he does give are given in terms of maddeningly unfocused astrological alignments). A significant deal of guesswork is still involved in dating the precise sequence of events.

Redistribution

I am explicitly renouncing any rights to this work. You are free to redistribute it in any way, in whole or in part, under no restrictions. I do ask that you try to retransmit it in whole form if possible, or at least include the entire table of contents.

However, be aware that much of this FAQ is a very close paraphrase of the books that some may argue would border on plagiarism. I personally think the data is far to important to be subject to petty feuds about ownership and that the whole idea is contrary to intellectual freedom. But I also condemn anyone who redistributes this FAQ with the sole intent of alone profiting from my own intense work on it. Let your conscience be your guide, email me if you have doubts, and if you don't have a conscience, we'll both be far better off if I *don't* hear from you.

A Note to the Enemy

Just as D. Cannon wrote that she fully expected to be accused of perpetuating a massive hoax, and actually published the books at great personal risk under her real name, I fully expect to be subject to vicious attacks for this "exercise in conscience". I have absolutely no use for closeminded, ignorant people jamming my mailbox with naive and uninformed vitriol. However, if you must have an outlet, feel free to post it to alt.prophecies.nostradamus, and everyone else will feel free to ignore you.

b. Nostradamus and his "quatrains"

Nostradamus was a physician and prophet of the 16th century living in France at the time of the Inquisition. He was recognized as a brilliant physician who knew effective measures against the plague victims of the time, a rarity in his profession. Nostradamus as a seer wrote about 946 "quatrains", or four line poems, about his visions collected over his lifetime. The quatrains are enveloped in deeply obscure, twisted, nested symbolism and encryptions (such as anagrams, different languages, etc.) that is virtually impossible to untangle by a casual observer. Perhaps the greatest difficulty was that he intentionally scrambled them in terms of their historical order. For an excellent biography of Nostradamus see ch. 30 of II, "Research into Nostradamus' Life". Other glimpses of his life are especially prevalent in II.

Quatrains I have found particularly evocative and masterful in symbolism and interpretation, and serve as examples of Nostradamus' intents and talents, are I p 140, cIII-13, microchips and electricity, cIV-29, p 283, the dichotomy of technology vs. spirituality in the 20th century, and cII-75, I p 257, a plane lands on the deck of an aircraft carrier in a pivotal moment of WWWIII.

c. How did Nostradamus do it?

The D.Cannon books I-III contain a great deal of information on Nostradamus' techniques, which came from a variety of sources. First, he acknowledges he was born with an inner "sixth sense", i.e. a strong intuition and great psychic abilities. Secondly he had enormous drive to develop it. His grandfather apparently passed him books on witchcraft that allowed him to experiment with some rituals. He also had access to "lost" manuscripts handed down outside of the libraries of the time. He talks about guides from the astral plane and from other worlds who helped him. Some pointed him in the direction of esoteric plant recipes and mind-enhancing drugs (but he emphasized they only enhanced his powers and were not the source of them). One apparently bestowed on him a mirror during one of his meditations. The mirror was especially important to his predictions.

Nostradamus also talked of using different crystals to focus on various telepathic frequencies. Occasionally he refers to staring at fire or water (such as in a bowl on a tripod) as a way of focusing his mind. He had access to some lost works of mysticism from his travels (apparently to some Moslem lands). He communicated with other expert astrologers and mystical teachers. However it is possible that some of his notes about and explanations of his techniques were a means of throwing the Inquisition off track.

One of the most amazing possibilities explored in various places in the D.Cannon books was that in a sort of "twist of time" Nostradamus was tapping into the subconscious of the people from the future who contacted him. D.Cannon talks about this in the introduction of II.

Some have wondered about Nostradamus' healing capabilities. He talks about a sort of holistic approach to health and reveals that he was skillful in avoiding the shock that was induced in many patients of surgeons at the time using psychic approaches. He talked about the importance of the "aura" of the person in determining the health of the patient and criticized the practice of treating symptoms. He said that a patient will find some other way to make themselves sick if their critical mental attitude is awry. He talked about cancer being caused by deeply ingrained self-sabotaging thoughts. Nostradamus also confirmed what many have speculated, that he was able to see future approaches to treating the diseases he encountered (such as the plague) and adopt key aspects of the techniques.

d. D.Cannon & regression hypnosis

Dolores Cannon is a regression hypnotist, meaning that she uses hypnotism as a technique for past-life regressions wherein the subject can recall details from an earlier incarnation on the earth plane. One of her subjects recalled a past life as a student of Nostradamus and helped interpret his quatrains. Through the student, Nostradamus gave D.Cannon the task of translating the quatrains into modern language free of the convoluted symbolism he wrapped them in to avoid persecution under the Inquisition.

For the books, she used multiple subjects as channels, giving them a first name pseudonym in the books. "Elena" was the first subject through whom contact was made; she was Nostradamus' student Dionysis in the past life. See the early chapters of I.

"I have never been in doubt that I am truly in contact with the physical Nostradamus while he is alive in his lifetiem in France during the 1500s." (I p117)

D. Cannon has written other books, _Keepers of the Garden_, _A Conversation with a Spirit_, _A Soul Remembers Hiroshima_, and _Jesus and the Essenes_.

e. "Simultaneous Time"

"Simultaneous time" is a difficult concept that refers to the illusion of earthly time seen from higher spiritual planes. Between lives, the soul has the capability to review lifetimes free of the constraints of time. This state of consciousness is also achieved in hypnoregression subjects who are highly "sonambulistic", i.e. conducive to deep trance states. They can review not only past lifetimes but future ones. But beyond this, it is as if they are actually living them at the moment they describe them. So, for example, the student of Nostradamus that D.Cannon regressed would see herself and Nostradamus as actually living, and Nostradamus would be communicating directly from his own time to ours as a living person. D.Cannon describes this subject in ch.2 of II.

f. Ways to view Nostradamus and the prophecies

One can view the interpretations "channelled" by the D.Cannon subjects as the actual pronouncements of a living Nostradamus during his time, sent to us via circumstances bordering on the miraculous, as a channelling of Nostradamus from the afterlife (although the "Nostradamus" personality in the books insists this is definitely not the case) or merely as a new interpretation of his quatrain from "some source" (for a skeptic the "source" might be the "imagination of subject's subconscious"). Either way the interpretations given by D.Cannon are the most clear and striking of all available in the literature, and the least permeated with confused speculation.

A scathing work of criticism and ridicule has been levelled at Nostradamus by the famous "debunker", James Randi. Nevertheless, buried in the unparalleled closemindedness and vitriol, Randi makes some reasonable points, the most damning of which, reiterated by the skeptics through the centuries, is that Nostradamus' "predictions" are veiled in such obscure symbolism that they could mean anything, and that interpretations are impossible in the absence of precision in language. He has a very valid point.

But the works of D.Cannon give us a renewed, fresh perspective into the matter. Not only are the past predictions laid bare, but so are all the future ones. These books give a very *precise* vision of the future, with a rigor bordering on the quality of even scientific papers (which themselves contain speculation and a lack of confidence and absolute specificity at times). Perhaps the skeptics can argue that the "fulfillment" of all his prior prophecies were merely due to the creative interpretations or vivid imaginations of enthusiastic supporters. But they will not be able to deny the reality of these explicit visions as (or "if", as the case may be) it unfolds before them.

If one takes the D.Cannon books as truly channeling Nostradamus, the ultimate measure of Nostradamus' true talents will be revealed shortly for us all to personally witness and attest to the presence or lack thereof. And even if one ignores the Nostradamus aspect, leaving aside for a moment the question of the "source" of the predictions, the D.Cannon books contain a treasure trove of specific, "falsifiable" predictions about our near future. Here is something that is not buried in mysticism or obscurity and is open to any one who has an open mind.

g. Free will vs. Fatalism

Nostradamus' preponderance of bleak and horrid prophecies sometimes have the effect of causing people to adopt an attitude of resigned nihilism or fatalism. "What's the use?" But this is precisely the mental attitude that he was fervently attacking. The earth history-flow has a kind of "inertia" that he learned to read through his highly refined and developed mental concentration. If we continue on our present path, i.e. the "course of least resistance", the worst of the horrible, apocaplyptic visions will be realized. But through focused thought and determination the most severe scenarios can be avoided.

In the D.Cannon book Nostradamus repeatedly emphasizes the urgency of his mission and his frustration with man's apathy in the face of his predictions. In one channeling, the subject said that "his psychic abilities are so profound and developed that had he lived in other times he might have been revered almost as a God, but in the Inquisition his talent was wasted." Nostradamus was something like a psychoanalyst for the entire human race, and was quite frustrated with his patient's continual tendency to sabotage and destroy himself in spite of the doctor's--literally--divinely inspired advice.

Another interesting theme is that Nostradamus, in II, seems to indicate that the Antichrist is the embodiment of all evil in mankind since the time of creation. In other words, our own evil thoughts and deeds contribute indirectly and directly to the terrible crescendo his horrible nature. The grisly earthly drama with him in the starring role, foretold for centuries as far back as the Old Testament of the Bible, is actually a lesson of the highest order for us to clean our own mental and bodily temples of the encrusted pollution of ages. The awesome power of our own thoughts will confront us face to face. Just as the atrocities and genocide that Hitler perpetrated under the name of the Reich are the logical conclusion of insane fascism, racism, intolerance, and imperialism, the shrieking crescendo of WWWIII is the embodiment of all our hidden and concealed crimes against our fellow humans.

I would like to bring out an example of the importance and interpretation that should be attributed to Nostradamus' prophecies. In I p 141 (cVI-34) he correctly foresees the Challenger shuttle disaster. But in his interpretation, he also indicates that NASA would coverup the source of failure and not reveal it to the general public. This arguably occurred, but because of the dynamic efforts of one man in particular *outside* of NASA, the truth of the disaster has probably in fact been revealed.

The man is the eminent physicist Richard Feynman, who wrote about his experience on the Challenger investigation committee in his book, "What do you care what other people think, Mr. Feynman?" Throughout his great work one can see very directly the efforts of NASA administrators to put up a smokescreen to the public and defy his determined, heroic efforts to find the truth. Did he indeed thwart one of Nostradamus' many uncanny and depressing predictions? Can this be regarded as a case of the power of an individual to defy the smothering inertia of foretold negativity? Of the power of each one of use to untangle and defy secret conspiracies, and those who derive their power through the concealment of truth, and greedily, madly clutch it?

Nostradamus refers to many different dark secrets of our times, ranging from the Cabal that manipulates the world economy and military conflicts to the unspeakably horrible secret military weapon researches. Are we to assert that we have no influence over those who attempt to conceal truth from us? Or would the world be a far better place if we all had the dogged determination and curiosity that Feynman embodied? The courage to defy and transcend people who say "you don't know what you're doing and you have no place in this matter"? Or not be bludgeoned into silent submission by keywords like "matter of national security"? as our governments develop the most grisly weapons of destruction ever conceived in the history of (in)humanity?

Nostradamus' underlying, "golden" message is that every individual contributes to the flow of history, that free will exists and can avert disaster through sensible use--but apathy is perhaps the most negative and lethal contribution of all.

-- I. p 66

"There is free will. He wants you to know about them so the worse effects can be avoided."

-- I. p 57

"Do not feel that civilization as we know it--or to be more correct--as you know it, has a hopeless future. He says that with the ability to understand what can happen with a planet and to have new awareness within yourselves, that could always change the event of things."

"Even a shift in the axis?"

"Yes."

-- From the jacket of I, D.Cannon:

"Nostradamus believed, as I do, in the theory of `probable futures', of nexus on the lines of time with many possible courses branching off in all directions. He believed that if man had the knowledge he could see which time line his future was headed down and reverse it before it was too late."

h. FAQ Compiler's note

What is my motivation for writing this "FAQ"? In short I find these books absolutely mesmerizing. They have opened up whole new exhilarating research avenues for me, and I have seen deeply receptive curiosity to the ideas out in cyberspace. However, the books, from the perspective of pure prophecy, have exceedingly scattered organization and superfluous and irrelevant detail and are in desperate need of further editing, condensing, cross reference, and interpretation. (This is not to criticize the fantastic trilogy as it is intended, i.e., in addition to imparting the formal interpretations, to paint the fascinating, shining, previously-unknown personality and life of Nostradamus.)

But more generally I believe Nostradamus stands above humanity as a man of the highest calibre and integrity. His sheer *gift* for prophecy is repeatedly reinforced by the occurence of truly foretold events as unparalled in history. I want to help spread the brilliant light of his prophecies into our tumultuous, critical era of "The Shift".

The elements that most disturbed me of Nostradamus' prophecies were the predictions of an apocalypse for civilization. Like most people, I generally think we live in a great society unparalleled in history. What is the future of cyberspace if the entire world and its current massive communications infrastructures will be devastated?

The predictions that related the Antichrist's mad massacres for world power as involving the manipulation and debasement of international communications networks utterly stunned me. But it fit in with my beliefs that we are forging these vast electronic networks with very little concentrated thought, planning, or understanding, with no concept of the vast power of the psychic energies we are tinkering with and unleashing, like an uncontained and uncontrolled explosion, and that Murphy's law that "if anything can go wrong it will" could apply on a cataclysmic global scale. But the most psyche-shattering revelation in these books for me, that the biblical Beast alluded to is referring to *computers*, above all else has convinced me of the absolutely cosmic significance of Nostradamus' prophecies and the cut-to-the-bone relevance to *our* times, *now*. (See II, chapter 14: "666: the Secret Number of the Beast").

Finally, Nostradamus seems to allude to a sort of future Inquisition and period of martial law during which materials conflicting with the Antichrist's philosophy and agenda of world conquest will be suppressed. So I am "seizing the moment" and consolodating a large amount of material for maximum distribution in a short amount of time while cyberspace is still healthy, innocent, robust, and unadulterated. I encourage you to help redistribute this document as widely as possible in any form in any forum or medium. I also encourage you to buy D.Cannon's trilogy for the ultimate reference, a sort of "Handbook for the Global Apocalypse".

Above all, I hope that you will help play a positive role in the cosmic drama that is unfolding before us. Will you be "another brick in the wall" of the Antichrist? Or will you help to bring a new era of peace, prosperity, and spiritual advancement to yourself and your fellow man? Nostradamus emphasized that we still have free will, that his prophecies are only based on a sort of "momentum" that the world course is taking and that can be reversed by the awesome force of personal, conscious, thoughtful, focused, virtuous choices and actions.

o. Fundamentalist censorship p. Terrorist assassinations

a. Background/overview of the Antichrist

I p 186

The Antichrist made a promise to himself to rule the world in a past incarnation and the wheel of karma has turned to give him the opportunity in this lifetime. His potential and opportunities for evil will be counterbalanced by the ability to do good. In early 1990s he is beginning the realization of his ambitions, and will start his political career at a local level and keep advancing, becoming ever more greedy of power.

I p178 (cI-76)

The Antichrist will become a world leader even though he misuses his power. The root meanings of his names will give a clue of his destiny and what he is capable of. The name may sound somewhat barbaric to European ears. He will be influenced by old customs known in the literature but generally forgotten.

I p178

The Antichrist will be worse than Hitler. In ~1989 he's living in the Middle East. He is at a very crucial time in his life, when impressions will influence his future lifepath. Currently in the realm there is a lot of violence, political maneuvering, and corruption. The atmosphere is having an effect an effect on him and he's coming to realize what his destiny is.

I p 190 (cVIII-77)

He will succeed in conquests but only at the cost of terrible bloodshed by conventional weapons, but will save his nuclear arsenal for later unspeakable deeds. So many people will be killed that the living will not be able to haul them away to be buried fast enough. The people of the world will be accustomed to the sight of corpses and the sight of death will will not make people squeamish because they will be around it so much.

I p 182

Neither Kadaffi or the Ayatollah Khomeni are the Antichrist, but they will contribute to the destabilization of the region that will aid his rise to power.

I p180

He will be educated in Egypt because of its current stability and strategic position to the Middle East and North Africa.

I p170

The social upheavals of the times will contribute to laying the way open for the Antichrist to take over. Various countries will have their social and political structure will be turned totally upside down. Religious fanatics (not spiritual people) will come into power and believe they are justified in their draconian campaigns. The religious fervor allows the AntiChrist to come into power through persuasive guile. His followers will regard him as a religious figure.

I p 194 (cX-71)

Despite the massive propaganda campaigns of the Antichrist that paint a grand and wondrous picture of his worldwide achievements, other glimpses of his heinous atrocities "behind the scenes" will leak out. He will not be able to live up to the image his followers project of him.

I p179 (cI-50)

The Antichrist will be in action near the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, and the Arabian Sea. He will gain immense world-wide power. Thursday will be an important day for him, he will take it as his day of worship. He will be a threat to everyone but particularly in the East because he will control both China and Russia and the entire Asian continent under his control, for the first time in world history.

I p 234 (cI-55)

The social and political upheavals orchestrated by the Antichrist will be felt particularly in northern, developed countries with cooler climates. During his time societies will be torn and cast into chaos and confusion. Many doomsayers will arise as false prophets, claiming to have divine revelations and know the path of salvation for the people.

I p 249 (cI-92)

For a short period the reign of the Antichrist over his realm will be no fighting because of his police state. But people will begin to rebel in the memory of lost freedoms. There will be very much death and destruction, with many people dying for their cause. Prophecies from the Revelations will apply, such as the quote about "rivers of blood up to horse's harnesses". The times will be extremely violent and traumatic.

I p 256 (cI-80)

The Antichrist will take Thursday as his day of reverence. There will be enormous warfare and bloodshed from his weapons, one "a monster borne of a very hideous beast". Hard radiation will cause gross deformities, terrible mutations in nature, in plants and animals as well as Mother Earth. In the period 1997 or 2001 there will be great pain and despair.

b. Political & religious philosophies of the Antichrist

I p 187 (cX-75)

The Antichrist will develop a systematic philosophy based on Marx and Engels that takes advantage of the elements related to the complete control of a population. Russia and China will be vulnerable to the philosophy because of the past receptivity to Communism. The Antichrist will use his philosophy as a way of conquering the entire Asian continent before setting out to take over the rest of the world. His philosophies will be propagated through manipulations of the different institutions of political power.

I p 188 (cIII-95)

The Antichrist will corrupt the religion of Christianity with the intent of destroying it, but also distort the beliefs of Islam. He will disguise his agenda of conquest as a way of life and a replacement for religion.

I p 254 (cIII-19)

The Antichrist will study and emulate Hitler and his techniques avidly to try to surpass him and avoid his mistakes. He will have access to books and material not available or known to the general public. It will be possible for him to obtain secret Nazi documents on Hitler and he will study them very carefully.

I p 274

The Antichrist will be doomed from the start of his campaign, because he is against central spiritual forces that make up the fabric of the universe. For people who choose this path, "It's just a matter of how far they go before they fail and what effects they have on the lives around them." Like the ultimate downfall of many tyrants his empire and power will be inherently unstable. His own subcommanders will be power hungry in his image and his authority will fragment around him. The political map of the world, the boundaries of countries, will change but the continents of the world will still be shaped the same.

c. Ogmios

I p 274

Ogmios is the counterforce to the Antichrist who will help tear down the tyranny and balance the universe in a way that is harmonious to man's central spiritual source. He will be supported by many countries still fighting the Antichrist. He will probably arise from the underground movement. In one of the countries conquered by the Antichrist the underground will be tightly organized. Ogmios will arise from it, and confront the Antichrist in the area in Eurasia close to Constantinople, as WWWIII is approaching its end. Ogmios wil come from somewhere in central Europe. He is very well prepared spiritually for the task, because his opponent is very powerful with a strong aura of negative powers.

Ogmios will be "of the people". He will have worked up through the ranks from a simple background, attaining his accomplishments through honest work. He will have technical training but will rely mainly on his practicality. He's an old soul who has his priorities straight and can see the root of matters. He is one who will help pave the way for the "Great Genius". Ogmios realizes he is not the one to lead the world to ultimate peace, but he is the one to help bring down "the one who would destroy the world" (the Antichrist) to open the way for the one who will guide the world to ultimate peace.

I p 277 (cV-24)

The organization run by Ogmios will survive the worst of the time of troubles and will serve the basis for future governments after the Antichrist is put down. The "glory of the sun" is behind Ogmios; is is a man of great stature, but has a direct, sometimes "gruff" personality. He makes a good friend but a terrible enemy. He will be an upstanding man of strong principles and morals, making him a strong adversary to the Antichrist. His principles are his own and not influenced by dogma, and his organization under his leadership is the effective opposition to the Antichrist, but he is not haughty.

I p 277 (cII-85)

Ogmios will be "small" in that his forces and resources are meager. His underground movement will be scraping to keep body and soul together.

I p 275 (D.Cannon's note)

Ogmios is the Celtic equivalent of Hercules. He is represented as an old, bald-headed man with wrinkled and sun-burnt skin yet possessing the attributes of Hercules. He draws a multitude of joyful followers and admirers by beautiful chains of gold and amber attached to their ears. The other end of the chains are fixed to his tongue, and he bestows on his captives a smiling face. This is the native god of eloquence, regarded with the reverence given to Hercules, because he had accomplished his feats through glorious speech. His speech shows itself best in his old age. The chains indicate the bond between the orator's tongue and the ears of enraptured listeners.

d. Death of the three popes / Catholic Church & the Antichrist

I p 198 (cIV-86)

The present pope will be assassinated and the next pope will not last long. The final pope will be a tool of the Antichrist. The Roman church is already a tool of the Antichrist, indirectly supporting his aims, even though they may not be aware of it.

I p 201 (cII-57)

The last three popes of the Catholic church will fall in short succession. The third to the last will die from an assassin's shooting. The second-to-last will be "swallowed up" by the schemings of the Antichrist. The last, the one born slightly misshapen, will go the greatest distance in destroying the church. The Antichrist will use him for awhile until he gets in the way, at which point he is eliminated. His treachery will accelerate, and his death will signal, the end of the Catholic Church.

e. Assassination of the current pope

I p191 (cVIII-46)

During the period that the Antichrist begins to flex his power, the current pope will be assassinated when he goes on a trip away from the Vatican. The two cardinals nearest to the pope will realize the danger to their church after the death, and they will close themselves up in the Vatican to try to protect themselves.

The current Pope is desirous of world peace and is working against some established power parties within the Roman church. A point will come when the special interests inside the church who want to hold onto their power and wealth will misadvise the Pope in such a way as to place him in a dangerous situation which he is unaware of. The assassination will lead to social unrest and rioting in Rome. The next pope will not last long. There will be only two other popes after the present one.

I p192 (cII-97)

The pope and several of his entourage will be assassinated in late spring when the roses bloom, at a European city that is at the junction of two major rivers.

I p194 (cII-15)

The present pope will be assassinated shortly prior to the appearance of a comet that will be clearly visible from the sky of the Northern Hemisphere. His concern for the human condition, leading him to treacherous travel arrangements, wil be his downfall. The next pope will be assassinated by the Antichrist because he won't submit to his demands. The assassination allows the Antichrist to install his "tool" into the office.

f. Second-to-last pope "swallowed" by Antichrist's schemings

I p193 (cI-4)

The second-to-last pope instated after the assassination of the current one will have a short reign. Due to political blunders and mistakes he will pave the way for the final pope to be a tool of the Antichrist. His reign is an omen of the final downfall of the church.

I p 196 (cII-36)

Before the Antichrist comes to full power it will appear that other leaders are above him and in control of the power structure other than him. In reality the Antichrist is using them as stepping stones in his quest for world power. During this period he will have traitorous cardinal working for him, spying on the second-to-last pope. One of the cardinals will steal information from him and alter the pope's personal correspondence, so that it has different connotations. It will make the situation appear inordinately worse than it is in reality, causing the pope to react inappropriately. This way the populace will be more likely to see him as incompetent and destabilize his authority, possibly by being assassinated. The cardinal will be troubled by his betrayal because of the obvious dissension it causes the Church, but he is allied with the Antichrist and will rationalize away his backstabbing.

g. The treachery of the final pope

I p 197 (cIII-65)

The last pope will be elected shortly after the discovery of the tomb of an ancient Roman whose philosophies greatly influence western thought, something like within a year's time. This is the "poisonous" pope that is actually only a tool for the Antichrist who will bring about the ultimate destruction of the Catholic church.

I p 200

The last pope will probably be French, with a swarthy complexion and blue eyes. There will be an air of mystery to him. He will have a physical deformity of some sort, like a slightly hunched shoulder or clubfoot, a congenital defect in the bone. (It won't be caused by injury, he was born with it.) His mind has been scarred by the deformity and the cruelty and callousness of people toward others who are different.

He entered the church at a young age out of bitterness and desperation because he knew he would never get a girl to love and marry him. His parents were involved with the Nazi movement in France and his schoolmates taunted him with names like "Nazi lover". This pope could have been kindly if it weren't for his childhood environment and experiences, but instead was warped into cruelty from pain, and he wants to "get back" at the world for his suffering while young. This is a weakness that the Antichrist exploits.

This pope will want to show his enemies, "look at me; I'm powerful; I can do it; I'm better than you." After he attins the power he desires, he will be indirectly responsible for the murder of innocent people because of his alignment with the Antichrist. He will not murder anyone himself, but will open up avenues for the Antichrist to do so, particularly those who hurt him when he was young. This future pope now appears to be kindly on the surface because it is advantageous for him to be perceived that way, but the sinister side of his personality is deeply rooted.

I p 202 (cII-76)

The final pope will betray his Church by revealing extremely crucial and sensitive information directly to the Antichrist, information that the Antichrist could never have obtained even through his spies in the church.

h. Demise of the Catholic Church

I p193 (cX-70)

Ruin will befall the Catholic church because of its leaders' ambition for illegitimate power. The leaders will become vainglorious and think that they can handle whatever they desire to grasp, and it will be their downfall. Their ambitions will be chilled when they fail and the church will be subject to great upheaval, with the Pope ultimately being dethroned. Catholics will become alienated and disillusioned with the powermongering, will no longer support the church, and the sphere of influence of the Church will greatly diminish.

I p 209 (cV-25)

The base of the Catholic Church in Rome will be destroyed in an accident, as if the city sank into the sea. This will somewhat coincide with events in the Middle east and some people will connect the two, but in reality it is a coincidence. However the Arabs will quickly take advantage of the situation even though they didn't cause it. The restrictions of the Vatican will cause the church to crumble. They may rally, but it will be a blow they will never recover from.

The downfall will reveal why the church finally collapsed after surviving so many centuries. The accident will be a combination of natural and human-triggered disasters. The force will involve the sea and a great energy force from the sky descending and dissolving the landscape. It will be termed a natural disaster because it's beyond the capability of anyone on the earth to produce the force. No one can find any cause so it is labelled an "Act of Nature". However, the more important event of the time, which people will be distracted from noticing, is the Antichrist's invasion of Turkey.

h. Cabal's teeth in the international power flow

Ip. 265 (cII-58)

During the time of the Antichrist a secretive, conspirational cabal are "pulling the strings" behind the scenes to manipulate world politics and economies for personal gain. These master puppeteers operate figureheads in many countries, governments, and the major world capitals. They are united but are very clever in disguising their influence. They hold positions that appear to be relatively minor, like advisors and under-secretaries and such, but are key positions ofr their power.

In the daytime they appear to be good, loyal, model citizens working for the same goals their governments are supposedly working for, but behind the scenes they band together and pool their information and contacts to work for their own ends. They do not appear to have any political power but they really have a firm grip on world affairs, like sharp teeth sunk into everything.

This secret organization has been in existence for several generations. Their existence is hinted in the family histories of the banking powers and money centers of the world. Only the families involved are aware. The cabal of leaders has been very slowly but surely building up a worldwide network of power, because they want to take over but stay behind the scenes.

At first when the Antichrist comes along the leaders of the Cabal regard him as a new, dynamic, youthful leader from the Middle East they can use to unite the area and reign it into their realm of control. But the Antichrist ends up turning the tables on them.

i. Cabal involved in military and economic conquests

I p 266 (cII-88)

The Antichrist successfully takes over nearly all of Europe. The cabal of international financiers and bankers will not stay in active war with the Antichrist and his attention will turn elsewhere. In France the underground will begin to flourish.

The Cabal families made their influence and fortunes in the banking and commodities industries, such as gold or diamond mines, leather, tins, etc, like the colonial barons associated with the European world empires who started their families' fortunes exploiting the materials of the Third World nations. "The seventh and the fifth" will have the same names, and the seventh one will be considered part of the fifth.

The Cabal manipulates the economy to cause the unemployment or inflation rates to rise or fall at their whim. They have affected everyone's life.

j. Cabal destroyed by the Antichrist

I p 268 (cII-18)

Somehow through the espionage powers of the Antichrist, the seven key leaders of the secret cabal will be discovered and destroyed. This is his familiar technique of throwing his enemies into confusion and chaos to seize or take advantage of their assets in their weakened state. At the time he knew only that they were financing the European forces that opposed him.

But in this case it is shortsighted of him because it was the cabal that has been instigating the warfare going on through the decades and centuries, and destroying them in effect seals the "beginning of the end" for the Antichrist because their hidden activities promoted his agenda. When they are removed the agitation for world war is no longer present and the natural inclination for world peace will assert itself, thereby doing away with the Antichrist.

k. Fundamentalist fanatics' infiltrations into governments

Ip 151 (c I-40)

Powerful men involved with fundamentalist religion and politics, shrewd in manipulation, propaganda, and in distorting the word of God for their own ends will band together to obtain *key* posts in the government. The posts are not necessarily splashy or public but are critical points in the power flow where they can exert their influence to subtly affect world events in their favor.

Leaders in the Middle East will become aware and alarmed by their encroachments and will change their laws, making it more difficult for Americans to travel in this area. It will affect American money, currencies, and trade with the U.S. The Antichrist, in the midst of building a power base, will be influenced by these actions, in a way that will be harmful to the Christian cause later. The religious fundamentalists will cause their own undoing in this way.

l. Manipulation of the IRA in Ireland by the underworld

Ip. 153 (cVI-62)

Members of the underworld will send faulty arms and drugs to fighters in Ireland. The British and the IRA both believe they are fighting for the good of the country but at the last minute realize they have been destroying it. At the last minute they will try to compromise but will be foiled by the manipulations of the underworld conspirators who are playing each side against the other. The underworld elements are spread in many areas but the arms and drugs will be shipped from Monaco.

m. Wealthy U.S. businessman a closet revolutionary and Nazi

Ip. 154 (cV-75)

A very wealthy and famous businessman in the U.S. will be secretly involved with the American Nazi Party and the Ku Klux Klan in the south. The man's sole ambition in life is to overthrow the American government as it is presently constituted. The man will be involved with politics but will stay low-key, spinning webs of power and expanding his influence behind the scenes. This groundwork will prove useful for the Antichrist later on. The man will have a puppet, a figurehead, but he will pull the strings. The link will not be known until the time of the Antichrist.

o. Fundamentalist censorship

I p 277 (cII-85)

A distortion in religious values will plague the populace during the times of troubles. Fundamentalist religion and its fanatics will be like an old man holding a thick oaken stick over his followers, to make sure they don't step out of line. This is opposed to to spirit of honor, valor, loyalty to one's country, and all the other virtues. The fundamentalists will be both Christian and Moslem.

I p215 (cI-62)

During the time of troubles and massive earth upheavals, the countries that harbor fundamentalist religions and philosophies will become very powerful, claiming to offer the true comfort and path for the populace in need. The fundamentalist groups will suppress learning and education and censor books.

p. Terrorist assassinations

I p 202 (cIX-36)

The final pope is captured into the influence of the Antichrist during a period of great civil unrest, war, and desolation, and many other horrible events. History will be seen as a series of catastrophic events, each topping the ones before, leading up to the time of troubles.

During the time of troubles the assassination of world leaders will become extremely common, so much that the population will not even keep track of who is the current leader, thinking it a futile exercise because they are assassinated so frequently. With the warfare going on, a great danger will exist to anyone who has ambitions for leadership, except for the Antichrist, who will be actually orchestrating most of the assassinations himself.

The Antichrist (part 3)

a. Antichrist's rise to power in Middle East b. Antichrists' unified monetary system c. Antichrist's seizure of Asia d. Antichrist's cultural eradication & European campaign e. Antichrist's ravage of the Catholic Church f. Antichrist's invasion of Turkey g. Switzerland alarmed by Antichrist's Nazism in Germany h. International (non)reaction to the Antichrist

a. Antichrist's rise to power in Middle East

I p189 (cIII-34)

The Antichrist will spend many years working silently behind the scenes to consolodate his power, and make his appearance onto the international arena once the structure is in place. He will have planned carefully and the countries he goes against will be unprepared for his golden-tongued treachery.

I p 190 (cVIII-77)

The Antichrist is the power behind the scenes, pulling the strings, and has not yet made his move to reveal himself. He is like a spider waiting for his time, taking advantage of the world situation to make his move.

I p 180

When his time comes he will take advantage of the political situation in a country to rise to power. It will not matter that he is not a native of the country. He will take advantage of loopholes and contrive positions. He may aggressively and audaciously seize a position in a military organization after his uncle dies, for example.

I p 234 (cI-34)

The Antichrist will foment rebellions within the countries he's aiming to take over. He will allow the various political splinter groups to believe he supports their cause, when he is actually playing them against each other. The countries will turn in on themselves, weakening them for his outside conquest.

I p 219 (cII-23)

The Antichrist will take over Iran by using a human decoy to trick the Ayatollah in power. This will involve the "yes men" and sycophants of the Ayatollah's court. The Antichrist will first drive away internal supporters of the Ayatollah by starting a civil war. Then he will put forth a man as a leader, a man for Iranians loyal to the Ayatollah to concentrate their hate on. The man will be assassinated while Iran is being taken over, and his opponents will think they have foiled the overthrow of power by assassinating him. But they will find out later he was merely a decoy and that they played into the plans of the Antichrist.

I p 211 (cII-81)

The Antichrist will initially obtain power in his own sphere, Asia, and the Middle East. As he grows out of this arena, i.e. into Europe, the next step will be into the Mediterranean, approaching from the south, his area of strength. Because of his Middle Eastern heritage he will have already united North Africans, who are sympathetic to his cultural background, with his Asian and Middle Eastern conglomerate.

b. Antichrists' unified monetary system

I p 219 (cI-40)

The Antichrist will start uniting the monetary systems of his region to help merge them into a single political entity. His ambition to rule the world will be advanced by instituting a single currency with others going defunct. There will be a resistance to this, particularly by a popular, charismatic leader from Egypt, demanding the edict and law be withdrawn that requires the Arab nations give up their currencies and be submissive to the unified political conglomerate.

c. Antichrist's seizure of Asia

I p 189 (cIV-50)

The Antichrist will take over Asia by appointing subcommanders to rule vast tracts of land for him. But their ties to him will be masked and the world will not realize they are merely puppets until a succession of them are installed in the place of predecessors. At first the U.S. will not interfere because it is thought the government was freely chosen by the people, but only later realize the leaders were forced on the populace as mouthpieces and tools for the Antichrist.

I p 188 (cIII-95)

Russia will be his first major Asian conquest and he will do it not through force but through guile and his compelling persuasiveness. He will trick the Russians to come under his power and there will be nothing they can do about it. They will think they are acting in their own best interests. The Middle East will be mostly under his control before he turns to Russia. Then he turns to China and the rest of the Asian continent, to build a position to take over the entire world. He will not trick the Chinese but will some other method.

d. Antichrist's cultural eradication & European campaign

I p194 (cII-15)

When the second pope is assassinated, the Antichrist will begin his European campaign. The Prime Minister of Britain and the U.S. President will go into consultation over the matter. They will meet at sea like Churchill and Roosevelt did for better security and secrecy of the meetings.

I p 211 (cII-81)

During the use of his weapons and the ravages of war, one of the devastatingly effective plans of attack by the Antichrist is to threaten the destruction of the victim's cultural centers, not so much physical destruction of the populace. Because the population attributes great value to places and artifacts with large historical and cultural significance, the terrorist-extortionist technique will be very powerful in striking fear into his foe and "bringing them to their knees".

To put Europe into an initial shock, he will begin to smash and destroy the city of Rome to rubble via aerial bombing raids. It will be destroyed to such an extent that the "seven hills of Rome" will be levelled. Rome will be be so annhilated as to be threatened by an encroachment from the sea, destroying all that is left.

He will also threaten the cultural centers of Greece and the great Greek cultural centers of learning, including Athens. Most cultural treasures and major metropolitan centers of the entire peninsula will be destroyed. The world leaders will be momentarily shocked and paralyzed by his barbarity. In the presense of their indeciveness and absence of their action he will make great strides in taking over territory and governments. The Antichrist will continually use shocking and unprecedented moves like these to advance his domination throughout the entire WWWIII.

The eradication of cultural treasures also fits in with the Antichrist's ulterior motive of wiping out the established culture to supplant it with his own, like the Moors attempted when they invaded Spain, except in his case on the level of an entire continent.

I. p226 (cII-84)

Drought and weather changes will take place during the time of troubles. The Antichrist will take over Italy and Greece by destroying the cultural centers to devastate morale of the subjugated citizens.

e. Antichrist's ravage of the Catholic Church

I p214 (cV-43)

In addition to the cultural destruction of European cultural centers, the Antichrist will ransack the Vatican library with the intent of ultimately destroying it. He will do this to undermine the authority of the Vatican and break up the power fragments that remain. One way he will do this is by revealing important, controversial material hidden in the Vatican library that the Catholic church will be seen to have suppressed because of the threat to its authority. This will cause major schisms in the church as priests and students turn against each other in their theories and interpretations of the new material. The confusion and chaos will remove the Catholic church as an obstacle to the Antichrist's plans.

I p215 (cI-62)

The ransacking of the Vatican library by the Antichrist will bring to light and open to the world information, facts, and knowledge that had been suppressed for several centuries. Even though he uses violence, the Antichrist will actually be burning off his karma because of the positive effects of the release, starting a new cycle, higher cycle of his karma.

I p216 (cII-12)

The people involved with the Catholic church, particularly the priests, will cling to the old order even though it is not viable and dead as far as working within the reality of the changed times. The Antichrist and the last pope will be "robbing blind" the Church. The Antichrist will desecrate and raid the Vatican library and cart away the treasures of the church to help fund his armies. The Catholic church will become totally superfluous, and contribute to its own demise.

f. Antichrist's invasion of Turkey

I p 209 (cV-25)

When the Catholic Church in Rome is finally destroyed in a devastating but mysterious "Act of Nature", people will be distracted from noticing the more important event of the time, the Antichrist invading Turkey.

I p 222 (cII-29,V-54)

After the destruction in Italy wrought by the Antichrist, he will go over the mountains through France via airplane. He will attack Europe from the south because he will have the solid backing of the Islamic world and will already have bloodily subjugated North Africa and the Middle east. He will set up regional headquarters in Turkey, and other outposts, to rule and advance further conquests.

g. Switzerland alarmed by Antichrist's Nazism in Germany

I p 220 (cI-61)

While the Antichrist is in the process of taking over Europe, he will back the Nazi party in Germany. The current popularity of Nazism among the youth of Germany will lay the groundwork for this. Eventually Switzerland will become alarmed and break its centuries-old tradition of neutrality, taking the side against the Antichrist and actively fighting.

I. p 229 (cII-39)

Infiltrators, spies, and traitors in Germany, France, Spain, and Italy will be secretly working for the Antichrist's cause of taking over Europe. The education establishment will be abandoned because it is unsupportable during wartime.

h. International (non)reaction to the Antichrist

I p 220 (cII-96)

Diplomatic foul-ups in other countries will permit the Antichrist to attain greater power. In the beginning, when he does not have a broad base of power but is building on it, those in power elsewhere who can do something about it will hesitate until it is too late. Even though people realize he wields great power "from the dark side", his demonic hatred and magnetism will enhance the fatal attraction. He will advance his campaign by invading and conquering neighboring countries, particularly because of the political turmoil and instability of the realm. Eventually he will subdue the entire Asian continent under his rule. The Antichrist will be in this period of increasing his power during the visit of the comet visible from the Northern hemisphere in about 1997.

I p 225 (cI-37)

The U.S. will vacillate in dissension during the conquests of the Antichrist. Its power, influence, and "can do" capabilities will have diminished in the international arena at the time. The populace will argue over involvement vs. noninvolvement. Shipping will be very dangerous because of submarine warfare practiced by the Antichrist. Enemy soldiers in foreign ports will foul up sea-based commerce. Many decisive battles in his wars will involve seaports. Many people will die far away from home in the war.

I p 224 (cIII-7)

The various weaker countries threatened by the Antichrist's imperialism will call on stronger ones for help, like the U.S. which will initially be neutral and uncommitted. The Antichrist will be attempting to take over part of the world using aerial warfare. In one battle in the night a squadron of unmarked planes will rebuff his advance, sent secretly by the U.S.

I p213 (cV-86)

Responsive, proactive countermeasures could have prevented the destruction caused by the Antichrist but the political and diplomatic strife among the Western powers will have failed to have "nipped the situation in the bud". England and the U.S. will have enough military power to confront the Antichrist but because of lack of consensus neither will act quickly. A newly established alliance between the two is only in its infancy at the time, and the powers have not established the authority of overall decision-making in time. Also, a breakdown in communications and transportation will cause important political analysts to be cut off from advising the leaders. Meanwhile the Antichrist will be making conquests in leaps and bounds.

The Time of Troubles (part 4)

Prelude to the Antichrist and WWWIII

a. Volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, droughts, famines, rioting b. Death of world leader and revolt coincides with comet c. Fiasco from communication breakdown between two superpowers d. Soviet/American submarine/naval confrontation e. Crazed leader launches atom bombs on Mediterranean and Europe f. Third world country leader creates strife g. Antichrist profits from radar research in Europe

International political and social incidents

h. Wargame simulation by Britain in Europe leads to disaster i. American electoral college voting stalemate j. Earth abuse causes agricultural devastation in U.S. and Britain k. underwater Soviet submarine base defanged by diplomacy l. Aliens shot by paranoid nation, bacteriological agents released m. Alien probe of the Watchers discovered by scientists

a. Volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, droughts, famines, rioting

I p 170 (cIV-67)

A very bright, previously unknown comet will appear and coincide with the time of great geological troubles, with earthquakes and volcanoes erupting and disrupting weather systems. This will cause widespread famines and droughts, and social upheavals in unexpected places. Nations that are considered prosperous and powerful, particularly western nations, will be weakened. They will be torn with civil strife and rioting as people migrate to areas that have water and can support crop-growing. The social upheaval and weakening of political structures will help the Antichrist come to power.

I p 167 (cVIII-29)

A great and rich power will be subject to serious natural disasters, particularly earthquakes and flooding, and rend the nation from end to end, causing enormous conflict, despair, and misery. The wealthy power will be bankrupted attempting to deal with its disasters. Three other great nations will send aid to help the citizens survive.

I p172

Earth changes will take place that will help the Antichrist's drive for world conquest. In central Europe, southern Europe, and in the Near East, particularly around the eastern end of the Mediterranean, there'll be severe floods. As a result of the disruption to local governments by the natural disasters, the Antichrist will move his troops in under the disguise of helping the people restore civil order, but really use this as a device to take over countries, and to use the populations like slaves.

Serious economic problems will persist along with great social unrest, contributing to the ease with which the Antichrist can seize power. The frightened and hopeful populace will be vulnerable to his demagoguery. The Antichrist will use the disasters as opportunities to overthrow governments and sneak spies into a country. Martial law will be declared in many areas to stop rioting and looting. The Middle East, the source of his power, will not be as devastated as the rest of the world. He offers assistance to other countries trying to recover but he will eventually stab them in the back.

b. Death of world leader and revolt coincides with comet

I. p 121 (cII-62)

The death of a world leader will coincide with the appearance of a comet. The comet will be clearly visible where the leader dies. The country is in the Middle East. The death of the leader and widespread crop failures and hunger in that year will provoke a revolt. It will start when the comet is visible but will continue for five hundred days. Also, a hundred people will contribute to the revolt in such a way that it will break forth and become open enough and wide-spread enough to capture the world's attention.

c. Fiasco from communication breakdown between two superpowers

I p144 (II-48)

Through a mistake by a leader an international incident will occur. The main problem will be a breakdown in communications between the two powers involved. The situation is a lot more complex than will apear ont he surface. The chief, the leader involved, will feel great regret about what happened and will want to continue his career and help correct the situation, to help make up for the adverse affects of it.

But he will be hung, symbolically, by others wishing to take his position in the organization. He will be hung so far as politics and his career are concerned. It will almost be like committing suicide because in the end he will be a broken man and not be able to do anything about the situation. The entire event will be viewed as a fiasco from both sides. It will have very harmful and even cataclysmic consequences.

The situation develops when an enemy or one who is against the U.S. will take advantage of the incident in an unethical way, by sending a horde of agents working for their side into this area. The world will be outraged by the action.

I p 158 (cII-35)

A breakdown in communications between the US and Russia will result in a misunderstanding and deep resentments between the Kremlin and the White House. Some will risk their careers to try to tame the situation but will be silenced, and "burned" such as by demotions to obscure positions.

d. Soviet/American submarine/naval confrontation

I p144 (II-48)

In the southwest quadrant of the Atlantic ocean, missiles will splash into the ocean near a partially submerged ship and a submarine. The submarine commander is antsy to engage fire. An American surface ship will be in danger. The Soviet commander of the sub will have secret orders the rest of the crew is not aware of, which are to antagonize and provoke. He gets carried away.

The American commander has been ordered to defend the coast of the US but to avoid starting a war. In the process of defending his ship from the submarine, he strikes the submarine and feels he may have sunk it, and agonizes that the action would be interpreted as starting a war and not an act of defense. The event will lead to the time of troubles and will have large historical significance when seen in retrospect.

e. Crazed leader launches atom bombs on Mediterranean and Europe

I p 181 (cII-3)

During continuing unrest in the middle east, one of the leaders will be able to get ahold of an atom bomb. He will be crazy and go to the greatest lengths over the smallest thing and will not hesitate to use the weapon because his obsessions with deadly warfare. The people he is warring against retaliate with a nuclear weapon. The country has a coast on the Mediterranean.

One of the bombs will land in the Mediterranean instead of the land, poisoning all the fish. The passages of trade in the region will be disrupted so that the people on the other coast of the Mediterranean will be desperate for food and will eat the fish anyway. It will happen near the east coast of the Mediterranean in a region of dark-colored cliffs.

I p 183 (cII-4)

The atomic weapon being dropped by one of the Middle Eastern countries will spark off yet another war on top of that war. Eurpoean and Western nations will try to interfere to diminish the threat to oil supplies. When the Eurpoean countries try to interfere, the crazed leader who earlier dropped the atomic bomb will use the rest of his arsenal on Europe, most striking the closer southern part.

The Eurpoean Mediterranean coast, particularly that of Italy and France, will be almost uninhabitable, and Italy will get the brunt. This leader is not the Antichrist but helps to set the stage for the Antichrist to rise to power with little or no opposition. The Antichrist will wield great power and authority; no one can argue with him.

f. Third world country leader creates strife

I p 185 (cIII-60)

A "young dark man" will arise as a leader in a Third World country; his main goal is to unite the other Third World countries to do battle with the superpowers. The area of conflict will be in eastern Europe and the Middle East, particularly around the Adriatic and the Caspian seas and the eastern Mediterranean. No definite winner will emerge but the strife will help set the stage for the Antichrist. Some prophecies in the Bible refer to events in this region (Israel will be involved).

g. Antichrist profits from radar research in Europe

I p240 (cI-6)

Research on a more sophisticated type of radar and sensing devices will give greater information to the operator, i.e. an airplane pilot. But the first experiments with the technology will fail in a disastrous accident, when the "sympathetic vibrations" emitted by the device cause the chassis of the plane to become weakened and dangerous due to dissolved bonds of the molecules in the metal. The scientists involved with the research will have to temporarily abandon the research because of diplomatic breakdowns, the threat of war, etc.

This will take place before the Antichrist comes to full power. It will happen in Europe at the time the Antichrist is strengthing his base of power in the Middle East. The devices are currently under development but have not been tested yet. But this is another historical event that will permit the Antichrist to take over Europe.

h. Wargame simulation by Britain in Europe leads to disaster

I p 164 (cII-2)

In a wargame maneuver involving Great Britain and European troops a malfunctioning circuit in a computer will cause the "real-world" situation to play out instead of the simulation. The teams are labelled "white" and "blue". As a result of the error actual defenses will be activated and real bombs will be dropped on the areas of the game and cause a tragic international incident.

i. American electoral college voting stalemate

I p 148 (cVII-41)

The presidents of the U.S., a supposedly free country, have been abusing their power to an increasingly greater extent. During a time of social unrest even more so than the period of Viet Nam and Watergate, the electoral college will be evenly split over the election of the new president. The process will stalemate, with many people clamoring for whichever candidate they voted for, causing enormous tension in the country. Internationally it will be a sensitive situation.

Because of the split, and the extremely volatile and explosive social unrest, putting either candidate in office instead of the other could start a civil war or a revolution. After a long time of impassioned speeches invoking patriotism and the founding fathers, a compromise solution of holding another election will be taken, and a candidate will be installed without disaster.

j. Earth abuse causes agricultural devastation in U.S. and Britain

I p 309 (cII-95)

Man will upset the balance of the earth and cause great changes in the climate and seasons, causing much hardship and famine. Major agricultural lands producing a lot of grain and food for the world today will become frozen and will be unusable. The people who live on this land and grow the food will flee like rats leaving a sinking ship.

There will be dissension and fighting over the land. As a result of the panic, incompetent decisions are made by the people in power under enormous stress. Poor decisions will escalate into major disasters. The U.S. and the United Kingdom in particular will experience the dissension and destruction.

k. Underwater Soviet submarine base defanged by diplomacy

I p162(cIII-21)

The Soviets have built an experimental underwater submarine base and dome in the Adriatic sea. They use it for subversive submarine operations. When it is discovered, due to pressure from statesmen, diplomats, and politicians, it will be brought to the surface and the submarines will be taken away through political maneuverings.

l. Aliens shot by paranoid nation, bacteriological agents released

I. p124 (cII-91)

Aliens tried to contact us in the Siberia Tunguska explosion in the 1900s. Similarly they will again visit the earth. The Soviets are doing secret weapons research and have energy fields guarding northern approach corridors. Another spaceship will arrive, paralleling this incident. When the aliens' spaceship enters the atmosphere the fields will cause it to malfunction and many of the crew are killed.

When they crash, soldiers will be on hand to capture or kill them. The ship will harbor microrganisms that will react in bizarre ways to the earth climate and cause plagues of unknown origin, that cannot be understood because of the alien causative organism. The country will be at war or fixing to go to war and will have a paranoid mindset. Thinking the crash is a result of enemy weapons, the soldiers will shoot anything that moves.

m. Alien probe of the Watchers discovered by scientists

I p262 (cIV-28)

During the time of troubles, when the sun is between the earth and Venus, i.e. from the point of view of Earth Venus is hidden by the sun, the Watchers (aliens) will be exposed through the powers of observation and communication. Scientists involved with radiotelescopy and related disciplines will observe an anomaly, and as they focus on it they come to the realization that it is a strong indication of a real UFO. The readings are caused by an instrument sent by the Watchers to observe mankind.

The scientists and the populace will learn more about the probe and the Watchers. But internal dissension will be created by fundamentalists because the existence of aliens is not consistent with their worldview. This will take place in approximately 1997 or 1998. The Watchers are returning to mankind at this time because they are trying to help him through gentle prodding and increasing spiritual love. They have always kept an eye on us and have observed our growth and development. They're looking forward to the day we can join the universal community and help with their project in a way that's unique to us.

Eugenics

q. Human eugenics research advanced by the King of Terror r. Eugenics scientists meet grisly deaths from public backlash

a. Nostradamus on the dangers of weaponry mixed with natural disaster

To avoid the worst effects of the pole shift, "Stop the explosions that the military feels are so important." (I. p53) Understand that what happens with your weaponry will have a large effect on how much or how soon this devastation [of the shift] would occur. Make people aware of the damage that can occur to their present weaponry system. IF people become more aware of the damage that can be caused by the military destruction, whether voluntary or involuntary-- if this can be prevented, the reaction set off beneath the earth's surface would be less damaging. (I. p57) It is the earth changes that will be causing the danger of the weaponry, not the use of it. Accidents will occur in the New World, because of natural earthquakes. The results that would happen from an earthquake near one of your military housing of the weaponry would cause your leaders to definitely realize the dangers. (I. p69)

b. Weather modulation devices go awry, cause ice and hail

I p 163(cI-22)

Devices developed by man to manipulate the weather will go awry because of faulty programming. They will cause a great deal of damage through unseasonal ice and hail. The scientists don't understand the forces they are dealing with and that the natural weather pattern will overcome interference in attempting to attain proper balance. The computers will fight the increasing intensity and break, damaged beyond use.

c. Nuclear reactor meltdown near city with underground chambers

I p161 (cX-49)

In the US, in the Rocky Mountains, a complete city will be built near to underground chambers blasted into a mountain for the storage of secret records. The water pumped into a nuclear reactor will not be totally purified, and an element in the reactor will cause a meltdown, unleashing radioactive poison.

d. Space shuttle accident releases microorganisms into atmosphere

I p122 (cII-65)

Incompetent leaders who got their position by family prestige, in a joint space venture between America and France, will be behind an accident involving a space shuttle. The ship will have scientists on board doing biological experiments to see the effect out of the reach of gravity. An accident and malfunction will cause the ship to lose orbit, break up and burn on reentry. Some of the microorganisms on board survive the fall. They will have the potential of causing plagues.

e. Devastating accidental weaponry explosions from earth tumult

I. p55

With the earthquakes and volcanoes will be accidental explosion of the weaponry that is buried in the ground. This is going to cause great emotional turmoil within the U.S. and [Britain and France].

The countries in Europe will want a disarmament. It is important they realize that if this disarmament of the weapons comes about, that will take place in the Moslem countries also.

f. Ruptured earth energy fields cause meteorite storm

I p 243 (cI-46)

Research scientists will be investigating the powers associated with the various energy fields of the earth. They'll try to harness the powers for different purposes, including warfare. When they begin experiments, in an area near the North Sea they will accidentally rupture one of the earth's fields so that a beam of energy will shoot out into space and draw a steady stream of meteorites to earth. They will continue to rain down until the scientists can repair the damage. Doing so will cause an earthquake from built up stress. The research will be a secret government project. To the world at large this will appear to be a natural phenomenon and will be recorded as such in future history books, because the government will keep the project concealed even after the accident.

g. Research into warping time leads to disaster

I. p.119 (cIII-92)

Scientists are researching how to warp and alter time to help change the outcome of a war. Near the end of a war, after the second failure, the research complex is destroyed in a large catastrophe. Because they are dealing with powers they don't know how to control it rips them apart. People not there assume they were hit by a missle of some sort because of the destruction.

But what really happened was that the vortexes of energy they were trying to deal with were not fine tuned enough to work with and they got out of control. It appears to involve England and Northern Europe. It's in our future but the groundwork has been laid already by scientists working on secret projects in this direction. Something may come of it in our lifetimes but the government will keep it under wraps.

The catastrophe will be very localized and will have some strange side-effects in the dimension of time in the general area there. The government was counting on it to give it an edge in the war and loses it and will end up affecting the outcome of the war.

h. New, horrific, secret, radical weapons monstrosities in WWWIII

I p 223 (cIV-33)

Advanced technology that is currently being developed in secret, referred to in other quatrains, will play a part in the time of troubles. This will coincide with great famine, plagues, and destruction with the onset of WWWIII.

I p 237

Nations will be desperate and will try anything to stop the Antichrist. Scientists will search for new, even more radical weapons for warfare that almost defy belief.

I p241 (cII-32)

Instruments of death built and refined during the time of the Antichrist will wreak great destruction. Variations on atomic weaponry and other devices will be developed. The ultimate monstrosity in weapons will be created near Ravenna, culminating research that is currently in progress during the time of troubles. The weapons will particularly disrupt the natural earth ecology. All sides in WWWIII will "have their fair share" of horrible weapons.

I p142 (cIV-30)

The space program will fall into disfavor through policy changes in the government with the emphasis shifted in a different direction than space exploration. The change is due to some nefarious policy making behind the scenes the voting public is not aware of but would not approve of if they knew about it. The policy changes of redirecting the money toward military applications will contribute to the horrors of the changes that are to come. The machinations behind the scenes will not be exposed until a later date.

i. Atomic device creates greenhouse effect, devastates agriculture

I p193 (cX-70)

A type of atomic device, not exactly a bomb, will be created that when set off can disrupt the planetary climate. It will displace an airmass that will upset the balance of hot and cold, so that a greenhouse effect will get out of balance and run to the extreme, causing drastic changes in the climate, and wreak havoc on agricultural production.

I p 195 (cX-71)

The earth and the air will freeze as another effect of the atomic device described above. Many countermeasures to the devastating climactic affects will be pursued but they will not succeed, in spite of government announcements urging the population to be calm and not to panic.

I. p55

A famine is caused by weaponry explosions. Accidents that will affect the crops.

j. Death by the "milky rain" weapon

I p 253 (cII-18)

A "rain of milk" alludes to nuclear weapons with bizarre effects on the weather, including a so-called "radiation rain". The weapons will represent a combination of the worse aspects of nuclear and laser weaponry. The laser weaponry, when it is shot down upon people, will resemble a white substance coming down.

k. "Explosion of light" causes horrible birth defects

I p 255 (cI-64)

In WWWIII some of the weapons will scream through the skies before they hit, terrifying and deadly to the population. An atomic or laser weapon detonated at night will cause victims to think they have seen the sun at night. The weapon produces a huge explosion of light. In addition to vast climactic damage the weapon will produce monstrous birth defects in babies, so that children will look almost "swinish" (i.e. like pigs). Scientists will frantically search for ways to alter the effects of the weapon's effect on newborns. A breakthrough will eventually be made, based on an unexpected source in the animal kingdom.

l. The top-secret earthquake-triggering weapon (ETW)

I p 237 (cIX-83)

A weapon will developed in secret underground laboratories that can trigger earthquakes at existing fault zones. It will work from a scientific principle recently discovered but not yet developed. The weapon will involve an airplane or airborne origination that may drop something or project a laser ray onto a region. An extension of the device is carried in a plane that flies over the area and focuses energy waves where the earthquake is to be triggered. The more technologically complex power source will be based and channelled from the secret laboratory via the plane.

The country that develops this will be able to hold it as a major threat against major nations, because most nations have geological faults that are susceptible to earthquakes and therefore the weapon. The situation will parallel the development of the atomic bomb by the U.S. in that the country will be the sole owner and the capability for destruction will be so awe-inspiring and frightening that everyone, including the infidels, will call upon the saints for protection.

m. Diplomacy dies with international earthquake terrorism

The revelation of the weapon will cause a disintegration of diplomatic nations and the United Nations will eventually dissolve, because the paranoid nation that developed the weapon will not share its technology but instead use it as a method of international terrorism.

n. ETW unleashed on San Andreas and New Madrid faults

The weapon will not be revealed immediately to the world. Only after the country actually uses it and there is an earthquake generated by it, followed by many others that occur without the characteristic buildup of geological pressure, will people become suspicious. The initial earthquake triggered by the weapon will be sufficient to cause other earthquakes in a chain reaction. The San Andreas and New Madrid faults in the U.S. will be affected. The San Andreas will continually rumble and vibrate as a result of the earthquakes triggered by the weapon, in time driving the New Madrid fault to eventually erupt explosively and violently. Initially geologists will think the earthquakes are due to natural causes but later information will point elsewhere and they'll begin to be suspicious. After more earthquakes and further evidence they will finally confront the scientific world with the mounting evidence that they are not natural.

o. Antichrist obtains ETW through espionage and treachery

During the time of radical earth changes this weapon will be applied to create many earthquakes, generally before the Antichrist comes to power. The nation that develops the machine builds it independent of the Antichrist's forces, but later when he gains greater power he will be able to acquire the weapon. He'll seize the machine for his own agenda of worldwide conquest. The Antichrist will acquire the machine through deceit, trickery, spies, bribery, and all other nefarious means known to man.

p. Death by radio waves

I p 165 (cII-2)

A new type of weapon involving radio waves played at a certain frequency will be developed. At certain frequencies and intensities the energy can cause intense pain in the nerve endings and damage areas of the brain, or even be lethal.

q. Human eugenics research advanced by the King of Terror

I p 244 (cX-72)

In 1999 and WWWIII many horrible areas of research will be pursued, including a eugenics project, i.e. breeding humans for selected characteristics. This particular research will have been ongoing for decades. The scientists attempt to bring back some of the less civilized, fiercer humans, still smart but cunning and strong, for the purpose of infantry soldiers. The governments engage the breeded humans in battles and the scientists will try to tabulate their performance relative to normal human soldiers.

This will happen during the period of WWWIII and enormous social unrest. U.S., Japan, Russia, and some European countries will be involved. They have the gold to fund the research. A "King of Terror", the "power behind the throne", is in charge of the project. He has enormous secret influence and greatly feared, unchallenged power over policy decisions in various countries.

r. Eugenics scientists meet grisly deaths from public backlash

I p 246 (cI-81)

A secret, isolated panel of scientists will develop super-weapons during the time of troubles. They will somewhat unaware of the worldwide wars because of their seclusion. After the "tide has turned" they are no longer on the winning side and their identities are exposed to the winning side. Their fate will be determined according to their role in participation, with some meeting grisly deaths.

Three scientists in particular with the initials K, Th, and L will meet with particularly dramatic demises. These scientists will be chiefly involved with the eugenics project, one reason the populace's reaction to their endeavors will be so violent. Many scientists are involved but nine head the project. The project was started in the 1930s and has been carried on in different countries over the decades since then. It will reach a culmination in the time of troubles.

World War III (part 6)

a. Overview: horrible battles, weapons, devastation, death b. Nuclear confrontation in the Middle East c. Mediterranean campaign and the battles of Gibraltar

d. Bomb sent at New York by the Antichrist, France retaliates e. Bacteriological warfare strikes New York and London f. Antichrist conquers Europe

g. The Antichrist invades Britain h. The crucial meeting on the naval carrier i. Seas, rivers, lakes boil; famines lead to insane cannibalism

j. Antichrist's commander succumbs to key strategic failure k. Russia breaks free of the Antichrist l. North Pole Alliance of North America, Europe, Russia forms m. Ogmios confronts the Antichrist, fate of world in balance n. Antichrist eventually dethroned

a. Overview: horrible battles, weapons, devastation, death

I. p.55

Because of the new awareness the western civilization has come upon, and because of the accelerated rate of the shifting of the earth's crust, and because of the conjunction of the planets, the war *might* be avoided. Depending on the speed at which the natural events occur. For as in any civilization, when natural disasters occur this is more prominent than military conquest.

I p252 (cII-40)

During the time of troubles and WWWIII there will be massive naval, air, and land battles. The ultra-secret weapons that are brought forth will shock and stun the world.

I p 272 (cVIII-17)

The Antichrist will not hesitate to use bacteriological warfare as well as conventional warfare, causing hunger, fire and plagues. The causative organisms will be more virulent than ever and hence increasingly lethal.

I p 253 (cII-18)

When the Antichrist is taking over Europe, nuclear weapons will wreak havoc like lighting strikes, and from them a "milky rain" will occur. Weapons currently beyond our imagination will wreak unparalleled devastation. Corpses will litter the landscape. The very earth will "cry out in pain". The Antichrist will be so terrible, horrible, and powerful that the rightful rulers of countries will be utterly terrified and will not do anything to stop his ravages. Entire dynasties will be wiped out.

I p 254 (cIII-19)

Before the Antichrist takes over a place, he will rain down death and destruction so that he can seize without opposition. He will travel far from his resting place in doing this. Some of this devastation will make past heinous events of the prior world wars "look like child's play". Unlike Hitler's "rain of blood" he will use a "rain of blood and milk."

b. Nuclear confrontation in the Middle East

I p252 (cII-60)

A major nuclear confrontation will occur in the Middle East. The aggressor will have broken a promise not to use nuclear weapons in warfare. Naval fleets kept in the area by other powers will be scattered in ruins from the violence of the blast.

Radioactive fallout and its effect on people, animals, and weather, and erupting volcanoes will turn the water of that part of the ocean a muddy red color. Because of this bodies will appear to float in blood. Because of the blasts and earth changes, rivers will change their course, and political boundary lines based on them will be redrawn.

The U.S. will have a Democratic president at the time. He will get involved with the conflict as a way of trying to stimulate the economy from a depression.

c. Mediterranean campaign and the battles of Gibraltar

I p 225 (cIII-10)

The Antichrist, during the Mediterranean campaign, will take over Monaco as a crucial strategic position to advancing to Italy and southern Europe. The successor to Prince Ranier, apparently one of his sons, will be imprisoned after the takeover as an obstacle.

I p 230 (cI-77)

In the Antichrist's Mediterranean battle Gibraltar will play a key role. The key general, a naval officer, will succeed in saving Gibraltar from the Antichrist's forces but will later die in an automobile accident.

I p 235 (cI-71)

The Rock of Gibraltar will be a strategic position, captured and retaken three times by various forces.

I p 232 (cI-98)

Marines on naval battlecarriers will confront the Antichrist when he attempts to invade Eurpoe in the area of Crete and Thessaly, but they will be outgunned and have to retreat probably to Gibraltar. In the very fierce and bloody battle the Antichrist will have to transfer many of his troops to a supply ship after a fighting ship is sunk.

d. Bomb sent at New York by the Antichrist, France retaliates

I p 250 (cVI-97)

In WWWIII many existing diplomatic ties between nations will be broken and realigned. One that will continue to hold however is the alliance between France and the U.S. A force aligned with the Antichrist will send a bomb aimed at New York City. It will be spotted and tracked as it approaches. The U.S. defense system will feverishly concentrate on diverting or disabling the bomb, and the U.S. will not be able to retaliate. As proof of their loyalty the French are asked to retaliate, which they do with several bombs and weapons.

The response will be immediate. The American leader uses a hotline to communicate to the French Marshal, who launches self-propelled bombs with "tongues of fire" against the aggressor. In this war some of the bombs will hit New York and some will be diverted. The bomb referred to here will be prematurely detonated along the flightpath, saving the city. Many human lives will be spent when planes flying around the bomb, trying to divert or destroy it, are blown up.

e. Bacteriological warfare strikes New York and London

I p242 (cII-6)

New York and in London will be hit with scourges from bacteriological warfare, a deadly "bug", either bacteria or virus or some type of disease-causing organism. It will be released into the atmosphere to affect the populations of New York and London. Because of separation and different gene pools, spontaneous mutations in the organisms will affect the two populations in different ways. It will appear to be two different diseases even though it was caused by the same organism.

As a result of this plague the metropolitan infrastructures will break down. The people near but outside the cities will panic and shun the cities and refuse to deliver available food, effectively putting them into quarantine. The city dwellers will starve to death in droves. People will loot and raid stores, and soldiers will stab them off at bayonet point. The government will try to evenly distribute the remaining food but the people will panic and they call on God to relieve them from their misery.

f. Antichrist conquers Europe

I p 278 (cIX-73)

The Antichrist will take over Europe and begin to toy with the idea of establishing some kind of dynasty. Because of his background he is obsessed with power and attracted to the way that a ruling family line can have a major effect on the flow of history, manipulating society over a long span of time through familial line, far beyond the influence of a single individual. But his plans will not materialize because he is overthrown by Ogmios and his monstrosities will be counterbalanced with positive forces to heal the earth, directed by the Great Genius.

g. The Antichrist invades Britain

I p 230 (cII-68)

In his European campaign the Antichrist will attempt to overtake Britain, particularly to seize its naval forces for further advances. England will resist and initially fend off the advance, with support from the U.S. However, it is likely that the Antichrist will eventually overcome England and the more passionate members of the underground will flee to Ireland and Scotland. The Antichrist will not succeed in overtaking the entire island. North England, Scotland, and Ireland will not succumb, possibly aiding the reunification of Ireland to fight the Antichrist. Patriotic and stubborn Irish and Scottish spirit will play a favorable role in turning the tide.

I. p 228 (cIII-16)

The British prince, a member of the English royal house, will be eager to lead his troops into battle to defend his own and neighboring countries that have treaties with Britain. He will confront the Antichrist's forces in two major engagements and will be defeated in one. He will be outflanked and will have to retreat in disgrace.

Nevertheless the opposing forces will curse him because he was a valiant fighter, and his brashly engaging in battle disrupted some of the Antichrist's carefully laid plans for the conquest of Europe. The man will return to England and the population will give him a hero's welcome for his bravery despite the defeat.

h. The crucial meeting on the naval carrier

I p 257 (cII-75)

During WWWIII and the great turmoil, an airplane will come for a landing on the deck of an aircraft carrier. It will be from a nation foreign to the country that owns the carrier. The balance of political powers of the two sides involved will be very complex and delicate.

The plane is from a power "slightly more aligned to the other side" although still basically neutral. But to have any kind of contact with the country that owns the carrier would have severe political repercussions relative to the war, so the generals of the carrier are reluctant to give permission to the plane to land. The plane will carry an important political or military leader and an important emissary who needs to deliver important documents and messages. The situation will be very fragile and volatile.

i. Seas, rivers, lakes boil; famines lead to insane cannibalism

I p 257 (cII-75)

During WWWIII shipping and normal trade will be seriously disrupted. Some countries will have excesses of food, such as bushels of wheat, but the price will be so out of proportion that no one will be able to buy it. In countries where there is famine, people will resort to cannibalism to stay alive. The wheat in other countries will be stored in silos and rot because they cannot get rid of it, cannot sell it. The price of the wheat is enormous in cost partly because it is very dangerous to deliver or ship it anywhere during wartime.

I p 251 (cV-98)

A very great drought will occur in the European continent during the time of the Antichrist. Fish will die as seas, rivers, and lakes boil. The Antichrist will be behind it. This event is not the same but is related to the boiling fish at the Dark Point (I p 181, cII-3). Two sites will be in distress from "fire in the sky".

I p 268 (cII-18)

The extremes in weather during the time of the Antichrist will affect a battle. Extreme rain and hail will take by surprise two armies lined up to do battle. As an alternative plan to confrontation they try to fly planes above the clouds to drop bombs on the opposing forces, "fire and stones falling from the sky".

I p168 (cIX-31)

The earth, after a relative period of peace, will suffer a great natural disaster, involving severe earthquakes that rip the crust open, spewing lava. The major earthquake will trigger other earthquakes that will destroy large land areas. Famine and fighting will set in. Countries will fight with each other over surplus food: India and China will march to seize the corn and wheat fields of Russia and eastern Europe. Communications will break down. Religious leaders will lose credibility because of the inability to explain the earth changes. Christianity will falter.

I p 259 (cI-67)

The climactic changes caused by the detonation of the terrible weapons will cause famines in scattered areas, and conditions will get worse. The uninhabitable regions will continue to grow until the areas connect large surfaces of the earth's land masses, and the majority of humanity will be suffering. People will become virtually insane with the persistent lack of food, and will eat things like tree roots, and even seize newborn infants.

j. Antichrist's commander succumbs to key strategic failure

I p 272 (cVI-33)

The Anti-Christ's surpreme commander will make a major failure of judgement on the field in an extremely strategic battle and the bulk of his forces are captured or killed. The supreme commander misuses some technology that has not yet been developed, causing his downfall.

k. Russia breaks free of the Antichrist

I p 272 (cVI-21)

The Antichrist will seem all powerful and all conquering and the situation will appear hopeless. But "his star will be falling" and his power will crack in crucial places. The U.S., Canada, Russia, and later, northern Europe, unite together. In particular, even though the Antichrist has taken over all of Asia, after a period he is no longer able to control Russia. Russia breaks free and unites with the unconquered countries.

The alliance strikes terror into the Antichrist who glimpses the beginning of the end and his potential failure. He chooses another field commander to continue his campaign, but the effort fails. Rhodes and Byzantium, the site of his regional headquarters, will be engaged in the most intense fighting. The "northern pole alliance" will diminish his power by breaking down his chain of command, communication capabilities, etc. and attempt to break his stranglehold on his conquered territories. This is the beginning of a turning point in WWWIII.

l. North Pole Alliance of North America, Europe, Russia forms

I p 272 (cVIII-17)

At a point the Antichrist's forces become complacent from so many frequent and rapid conquests. They will begin to lose some battles and see their power is not forever.

The Antichrist will have taken over a large part of the world and will become complacent. "Three brothers", the "alliance of the pole", i.e. North America, Europe, and Russia, will trouble the Antichrist and his world will tremble. France will be united with the alliance in spirit, if not actually physically, because the country will weakened seriously from the Antichrist's degradations.

m. Ogmios confronts the Antichrist, fate of world in balance

I p 273 (cV-80)

A leader figuratively referred to as "Ogmios" will confront the Antichrist in battle. The crux of the pivotal struggle of WWWIII will be in the "gray area" between Europe and Asia. The outcome will be questionable for some time. During the time the Antichrist is in power there will be constant skirmishes and battles between his barbarian forces and those still free of his tyrannical rule.

I p 277 (cII-85)

Ogmios will eventually emerge triumphantly victorious over the Antichrist, but it will be a long, gradual, arduous struggle.

n. Antichrist eventually dethroned

I p 278 (cIX-73)

The Antichrist will rule for "less than the revolution of Saturn" (29.5 years), far less than the grand span of time he envisions. His reign will be temporary, because his power is like building a fire with grass; it burns very hotly but quickly. His effect on history and his "time in the limelight" will be limited. The time from WWII to the end of WWWIII and the time of troubles will almost encompass a century in itself.

a. Timing b. The end of civilization c. Geography d. Preparations/Survival e. Old vs. Young Souls f. The New Age of spiritual rebirth g. Reawakening of freedoms an rights h. Peace after WWWIII i. Spirituality transcends technology j. Feminine aspects of God revered again k. More open, frequent contact with aliens l. "Green" revolution, return to the land m. Scientific discoveries reaffirm Eastern religion n. Great Genius unifies religion and science o. Great Genius discovers the science of miracles p. Astonishing feats of medicine q. New philosophy of the Age of Aquarius

a. Timing

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are due to the activity caused by the conjunction of the planets, which also affects the shift of this planet. (I. p54) A shift will occur at the close of the century (I. p52, I. p56). It will be abrupt as to be within a "six to ten-hour period".

b. The end of civilization

Civilization as you know it will cease to exist. (I. p53) Cities will no longer exist as we know them. (I. p56)

c. Geography

Continents as you know them now will cease to exist or change dramatically. (I. p52) All the central part of your continent as you know it will be [spared]. Continents all over the earth will be affected. The water mass as we know it now will cover a greater percentage of the earth. Continents that are connected will be split, divided by water that were not divided by water before. There will not be any country that is not affected. A large portion of Asia will be covered with water. Africa will have a channel cutting through it, a new strait. (I. p56)

d. Preparations/Survival

Make humanity aware. Let people prepare themselves spiritually. Intellectually become more aware of survival through climactic changes. (I. p53) Problems of survival will be hardest in countries turned into islands. (I. p69)

e. Old vs. Young Souls

I. p200

There is now a higher proportion of old souls in the world than there has ever been before, because the old souls will be needed to help the world survive. They can be found everywhere, permeated in the oddest places. The old souls will be in communication with each other and they are the ones that will help things hold together and survive.

I. p261

Nostradamus states that his communication is intended to help us avoid the worst-case scenarios of his visions that could be averted with great determination and resolve. The time of troubles will be a very trying time. The spirits on the earth at this time are there by choice to work through major amounts of karma. Living in this stressful period will be like concentrated karma, or the equivalent of ten average human lifetimes.

The older and more advanced spirits volunteered. Some younger spirits were simply feeling adventurous. Others are here not because they wanted to in their hearts, but they had to or it would be the "end of the line for them" as far as spiritual advancement. They're not fully volunteers but just enforced volunteers, so to speak, because they knew they had no other choice. Most of the people are understandably unhappy, but some make the best of the situation and some don't.

f. The New Age of spiritual rebirth

The shift will usher the beginning of a new age. (I p53, I. p56) Even though there will be physical deaths, there is no death of people's consciousness, but a different awareness. Do not feel that people would not know life. There will be those that will be left here to make a new beginning for the earth. (I. p56)

I. p224

Whether the worst of the events prophecied come to pass, there will be a great spiritual rebirth throughout the world. Individuals will have the opportunities to "get in touch with themselves" and come to a realization about the falsehoods of materialism. After communication is restored after the time of troubles, people will come to this realization together, and a great rebirth of philosophy that blends the Eastern and Western religions will ensue.

It will be a worldwide movement upholding the Truth as everyone perceives it, bringing about the best aspects of the Age of Aquarius. Focusing on this "ray of hope" during the time of troubles could alleviate the worst aspects of the suffering, the the materialism of the majority of the population will regrettably make this unlikely.

g. Reawakening of freedoms an rights

I p 281 (cII-44)

The U.S. will suffer defeats fighting the Antichrist as well as an internal political deterioration during the time of troubles. When the time of troubles are over people will celebrate their victory and freedom, and reawaken in the U.S. the spirit of liberty and rights embodied by the Statue of Liberty, which were dead during the time of the Antichrist's tyranny. The people will regain their rights and the way of life improve from the dark times.

h. Peace after WWWIII

I p 281 (cVI-24)

An American president with a strong Cancer influence will push for war and cause events to fall in place for it. But after WWWIII the populace will be repulsed by war and elect a new president. He will want peace and work for it, and peace will reign for some time afterwards.

i. Spirituality transcends technology

I p 283 (cIV-29)

This quatrain refers to the grand design that is emanating from the "center of the wheel" during the time of troubles and the healing period afterwards. The sun and Mercury/Hermes are symbols of "the higher aspects". The sun in this quatrain represents the overall power of the universe from which everything originates. Mercury represents the materialistic aspects of technology. Hermes, in relation with Mercury, symbolizes modern communications technology. Vulcan, i.e. one who works with fire, represents warfare.

The "hidden sun" represents the fact that the societies of the world have gotten out of touch with their spiritual source. They are ignorant of their origin and the "meaning of life" and they search for fulfillment and happiness in other areas, and do not succeed. They think it's found in modern technology, hence the "sun being eclipsed by Mercury". It's held only second because what people really hold first is personal pleasure and happiness. And in trying to find happiness in technology they separate themselves from the central source of the universe.

By the end of WWWIII and the time of troubles, and the healing process begins, people will be reunited with the source. The horrors of war and bloodshed--the powers of Vulcan--will cause them to realize that technology does not contain the answers to happiness. They will gain a new insight into "from whence they sprang and where they are going". The time of healing will usher a more spiritually mature age, and people will be able to heal themselves and the world, and go far in preparing to join the community fo the Watchers.

The central hub of the "wheel" represents the source of everything and radiating spokes symbolize channels of power. The space between the spokes contains different scenes in the background, representing the various influence the "aspects" have on historical developments as a result of the intensity of the associated energies.

j. Feminine aspects of God revered again

I p284 (cII-87)

The feminine aspects of God have been ignored, neglected and reviled. After the demise of the Antichrist the pendulum will swing back into balance. In early ages and in ancient societies the female aspect of God was worshipped and revered. The masculine aspect was also respected but was subordinate. During the patriarchal era, which extends into the present, the female aspect was suppressed and repressed. Society will come to terms with the divinity of both masculine and feminine aspects. This realization will help foster a more balanced worldview.

k. More open, frequent contact with aliens

I p286 (cI-29)

After the time of troubles there will be much closer and open contact with aliens and UFOs. One alien race will be heading for an undersea, seafloor base they have established but the craft will malfunction and be cast up on the shore. The people will perceive them as the enemy out of terror. Some of the "Others" are enemies, and some are not. There is more than one group of "Watchers". Some mean well for mankind and some have more selfish motives in mind.

l. "Green" revolution, return to the land

I p 286 (cII-19)

People will turn to peace after the horrors of the Antichrist. A "green" revolution with roots in the social revolution of the early 1970s will ensue. People will live in extended families beyond the nuclear families of the modern era. Larger families and groups of people are needed to build and support new communities. The new communities will be very earth- and ecology-conscious. They will help heal the earth of the horrible degradations of weaponry from WWWIII.

They will reclaim and cultivate wasted, misused, or unusable land for farmland. Since the will for peace is all-encompassing, building defenses will not be necessary. In direct reversal of the 20th century trend, cities will be torn down to expose soil to sunlight and make room for farming. So many will have died during WWWIII that plenty of land will be available to the low-density population. People will be inherently pacific and reclaim land beneath concrete instead of fighting over land.

m. New political alliances

I p302 (cII-22)

After the calamitous events of the late 20th century, the present alliances among the countries, particularly western nations, will dissolve and new alignments will form. During the interim period the people involved with the peace-keeping system beneath the existing alliance will be "at loose ends". A secret naval or intelligence base, will be constructed on the American continental shelf underneath the ocean for secrecy. Heads of staff will meet there to decide what action to take in regard to the new alliance. NATO will not be known by this name but will live on in a similar organization that stemmed from it. This will be dissolved due to the stress countries underwent duing the time of troubles.

n. Scientific discoveries reaffirm Eastern religion 

I p302 (cII-22)

Military scientists--not those researching weapons, but doing research-- will discover a new force other than the basic ones of electricity, magnetism, gravity, etc. shortly after the time of troubles. This new force will give supporting evidence for Eastern religious views. The countries in this part of the world, particularly India, will "turn inward" to contemplate the discovery and rise in greater glory than through outward communication with other nations. It is not so much a discovery but a realization.

The evidence for the force has been in front of us bu the facts have been misinterpreted and misassociated with other phenomena, such as "statistical aberration". The force will relate to mystical phenomena such as teleportation.

o. Great Genius unifies religion and science

I p 295 (cVII-14)

The Great Genius will help unify science and religion and bring about the enlightenment and peace of the Age of Aquarius foretold by prophets. People will be able to free their inner selves and open themselves up to the higher powers and the higher levels of the universe. In effect it will make everyone a philosopher. Sects and religions that embrace the newly discoverd principles will be widespread as adherents meet and share experiences in exploring the "upper regions".

p. Great Genius discovers the science of miracles

I p 296 (cIII-2)

The great genius will realize the magic of alchemy through his discoveries and inventions. The new philosophy engendered by his discoveries will encourage the development of mental powers and anything will seem possible in the climate of a greater unity of mind, soul, body, and emotions. People will be able to manipulate the basic forces of the universe in a wa that will seem utterly fantastic to those not involved with the occult. People presently involved in occult and psychic realms currently deal with these forces without understanding, but in the future understanding will be present, sharpening the efficacy of the art.

q. Astonishing feats of medicine

I p 301 (cII-13)

Future medicine will reach astonishing sophistication by today's standards and will eventually be able to renew a body or "breath back the spirit" into, i.e. reanimate, the body. A breakthrough in science will have a profound effect and man will finally "touch God", so to speak. The spiritual core of the universe that animates everything through lifeforce will be discovered, the central source of this the divine spirit. It will seem like a profound rebirth of humanity.

r. New philosophy of the Age of Aquarius

I p 302 (cI-69)

A new philosophy will emerge in the New Age, more compatible with the reality of the higher planes and life on earth. The philosophy will have seven basic tenets that appear simple on the surface but are actually very deep. After a period of peace the people of earth will become lax and uncaring of the higher aspects of spirituality because they "have it easy". A war and famine and other hardships will turn minds toward higher realizations as people think there must be something more to their existence. It will absolve existing contradictions in philosophies that perplex people, and will overturn older, established religions. It will have sociological effects and will affect the laws of countries. The philosophy has its roots in the Age of Aquarius.

"Grab Bag" (part 8)

a. Past events b. Coverups c. Atlantis d. Great Genius e. Far Future

This is a collection of quatrains in the trilogy that don't fit elsewhere in the FAQ. They are included here as examples and hints of the material that Nostradamus covered and the extent of his visions. Consult D.Cannon's books for the information. a. Past events   These are quatrains that refer to past events. I am including them here to give the reader a way to judge Nostradamus' credibility in prophesying. D. Cannon has hundreds of other unpublished interpretations on the past history that would enhance his reputation even more, but these are just the ones in her trilogy. Note that Nostradamus dealt especially with calamitous world events like WWI and WII, and areas of personal interest, e.g. the French Revolution or advances in science and medicine.

Discovery of microorganisms by Pasteur. I p130 (cI-25) WWI and WII, atomic bombing I p132 (cIII-75) radiation from atomic bombing I p132 (cV-8) Hitler's fall and suicide, backlash against Nazism I p 133 (cIII-36) Japanese and German imperialism in WWII, atomic bomb I p 134 (cIV-95) Nixon's diplomacy with China I p 135 (cII-89) Cold war and the Cuban Missile Crisis I p 137 (cV-78) Microchips, electronics/communication revolution I p 140 (cIII-13) Challenger shuttle disaster, NASA politics I p 141 (cVI-34) Misuse of Presidential office in Watergate I p 184 (cVII-41) Abuse of power by unsavory fundamentalist leaders I p 150 (cII-27) Rise of AIDS I p 157 (cII-53)

b. Coverups

These are some quatrains that refer to current or past situations but are not part of recorded history due to the coverups. If evidence of these came to light it would certainly be outstanding evidence of Nostradamus' capabilities for seeing the truth or at least the significance of the D.Cannon books.

-- Secret Russian voyage to Venus I p138 (cIV-28)

The Russians sent a manned mission to Venus as a way of competing with the American mission to the Moon. The astronauts died.

-- Secret Viet Nam involvement and POW's I p137 (cII-89)

The U.S. is covertly involved in manipulating Viet Nam political structure and actual American prisoners are being held, not necessarily from the war, but from the secret involvement.

c. Incidents

These are miscellaneous events predicted for our times.

-- Discovery of alien meteorite/ore I p.160 (cI-21)

Somewhere in western North America a meteorite will be found by miners looking for ore. They think it might be radioactive but it is a useful new element on the periodical table.

-- Tomb of ancient influential Roman philosopher discovered I p 197 (cIII-65)

The tomb of an ancient Roman figure will be discovered. The man is famous for his philosophy and theories about everything, and his discourses and writings on the nature of things, which are still in existence, and have had a profound effect on Western thought.

d. Atlantis

I p304: Atlantean civilization existed and the people could work stone with energies the way modern man uses concrete or metal. Physical evidence of Atlantis is spread around the world, one site of the civilization was in the Atlantic on a now-submerged island. The civilization was destroyed when the earth plunged through an asteriod field, either through accident or the deliberate intent of aliens who felt "threatened" by advancing civilization.

e. "Great Genius"

- The Genius will come the second generation after the Antichrist when people of child-bearing age today have grandchildren, in the mid-21st century. (I p 300)

- Great Genius builds space stations and successful artificial intelligence machine, transferring his consciousness to it. Intelligent machines used to manage space stations. Occurs in 21st or 22nd centuries. I p289 (cIV-32)

- During the time of the Great Genius L-5 space stations will be developed for manufacturing materials in space. Scientific base possibly established on Mars, scientific and communications facility established on the moon. The station will be built negligently. New ways of collecting and distributing solar energy will be devised. I p 300 (cIX-65)

- The Great Genius will unify religion and science and explain ancient documents, making clear the metaphysical connections between the universe and spirituality. I p 293 (cVII-14)

- Discovery several centuries after the Great Genius intermeshes grandly with his knowledge and allows people to burst free from all physical bounds and limitations. I p 297 (cIII-94)

f. Far Future

I p 307 (cIV-25)

Mankind will begin to focus on developing himself spiritually. The knowledge for the task has been in front of him but has not been noticed or understood. When he begins to realize what is possible it will astound him.

In the far future interstellar space travel will take place by mind emanations and psi power, rather than mechanical means. I p 307 (cIV-25)

I p 308 (cI-17)

Long after the time of the Antichrist and the time of troubles a "forty-cycle" drought will come about. People will survive only by extracting water by melting ice at the poles and distilling it from sea water. Later, the climate will become very wet and copious flooding will occur. This is a natural cycle of the earth, and it causes civilizations to perish during ice ages. "forty cycles" is something like four thousand years. Man will cause the problems because some aspect of his technology will be endangering the delicate balance of the ecosystem enough to eventually trigger an ice age.

I p 311 (cX-74)

The "end of the world" will arrive after the seventh cycle which we are currently living in. After this cycle is complete, man's accomplishments on Earth will generally be complete, and even though the Earth will exist for some time forward, the wheel of karma will no longer send man to earth but to other locations.

Human civilization will have fallen down and been rebuilt several times. Some of the old traditions of e.g. bloody, violent gladatorial games will be passed down through the times into the far future.

I p 312 (cI-48)

If man can avert the wars, a extensive and peaceful space expansion and exploration can take place, with times of growth and prosperity for humanity. A base will be established on the moon, a major center of communications and scientific research. The base's major purpose is to develop freestanding or self-sufficient space stations in various shapes. All have solar sails that provide energy. This will last for up to 7000 years.

The sun in our solar system will eventually explode in one last burst of energy and then die down to nothing. This will totally incinerate the planet, although the earth will have long since been dead.

(THE END)
