  1. Nostradamus - The Tripods (Part 2)

    These ideas (outlined in Nostradamus - Method, Result and Teaching (Part 1)) led to a particular line of research on the Quatrains. Another forum user (using the pseudonym Zaphod) suggested groupings of 3 Quatrains, which were coined "Triads" or "Tripods". These groupings were linked by common, but rare, words or terms. In most cases, the linking word/term exists in the Prophecies only in the 3 Quatrains that make up the Tripod.

  2. Nostradamus - Method, Result, and Teaching (Part 1)

    I've been mentioning Nostradamus a few times lately, and I realize people may have some preconceived notions about him due to his portrayal in media, and some of the representations of his works.

  5. More Battle of Scorpius and Orion...



    I did mention in the last post how many different versions of the story of the Battle of Scorpius and Orion there are.. While trying to stay under the character limit on my last post, I inadvertently deleted the story I liked the best, compared to the imagery from the manuscript of Virgil's Aeneid. You'll see at the beginning it's mentioning Jupiter, Neptune, and Mercury, who are the subjects of some of the nicest pictures:
