Nostradamus: Beyond 2012
It seems everybody who is anybody has a theory about 2012. Even the prophecies of Nostradamus are prominent some 500 years after the legendary French â€śseerâ€ť penned them. Though much of the speculation is doom and gloom, other views carry a torch of hope. And Nostradamus is no exception; even the doubtful one gives us light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
The coming of the end crept into the public consciousness when it was reported the Mayan Long Count calendar ends on 21st December 2012. The subject has since become the hot topic of discussion amongst scholars, spiritual leaders and popular press. The Hollywood film 2012 – somewhat predictably – predicts the end will come in devastating and dramatic fashion.
Together with the Maya, other ancient cultures such as the Hopi Indians of the Arizona desert, the Dogon Tribe of Northern Africa and the book of Revelations in the Christian Bible also predict the end of days â€“ or at least a new beginning.
At the centre of the 2012 debate is Nostradamus. It has been said by many supporters of the famous visionary that his quatrains predict the end of days. Some scholars point towards a comet that will devastate the earth and cause tidal waves, floods and earthquakes.
Century 3 Quatrain 34
When the eclipse of the Sun will then be,
The monster (divine omen) will be seen in plain daylight:
Quite otherwise will one interpret it,
High price unguarded: none will have provided for it.
Others say the outbreak of a third world war will destroy the majority of mankind and vastly reduce the population.
Century 1 Quatrain 87
Earth-Shaking fire from the center of the Earth
will cause the towers around the New City to shake,
Two great rocks for a long time will make war,
And then Arethusa will color a new river red.
Yet despite the recurring pictures of devastation and horror, Nostradamus offers hope for the future of the planet. To begin with his quatrains continue long after 2012; his final prophecy is not expected to happen until 3790. Therefore if we are to believe the outcry of apocalypse now, we must also believe some form of order will return to the planet and mankind will find peace and stability.
Century 1 Quatrain 63
Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller,
For a long time the lands will be inhabited in peace:
People will travel safely through the sky, (over) land and seas:
Then wars will start up again.
But whoâ€™s to say 2012 is the beginning of the end? Nostradamus is known to have been wrong in the past â€“ or at least the decipherers of his messages have. The projected apocalypse off 1999 for example, turned out to be worry for nothing.
And there are many enlightened people around the world that carry a much more positive message. Astronomers tell us the alignment of the planets in the solar system will form a straight line through the center of the Milky Way which marks the transgression into the next zodiacal age, that of Aquarius. The due date for this cosmic event is the 2012 solstice.
In turn, spiritual authorities predict the precession will shepherd in a new dawn of enlightenment and an era of heightened consciousness. Some say this will happen to everyone, others say it will only be possible for those you are prepared to accept the changes. Which are you?
Another spiritual theory suggests the events in 2012 will be whatever mankind perceives it to be. Therefore if you and the majority of others project the ideas of Hollywood and believe the world will succumb to a devastating end, the planet will collapse like the Berlin Wall. But if you and the majority of others convey a positive message and believe the world will make the transgression into a new cosmic age smoothly, people will adopt a heightened sense of consciousness and spiritual awareness.
In reality nobody knows what will happen in 2012. Thus nobody really knows what they should believe. The only truth about 2012 is that nobody knows the truth. Theorists certainly canâ€™t agree and psychics can only speculate what might happen. Similarly pupils of the Nostradamus can only guess what the cryptic messages in his quatrains actually mean – or whether they refer to 2012 at all.
With this in mind let us take a look at some of the predictions deciphered from Nostradamusâ€™ quatrains that are expected to stem beyond 2012. Of course, the writers at NostradamusPredictions.Org canâ€™t say what will definitely happen, nor will we attempt to reach a definitive conclusion. What we will do however, is document the theories, detail the pros and cons, and let you the reader decide for yourself what you think they mean. After all, your future exists by the thoughts you believe and the signals you send out.
