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.
