To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois,
Before after Mars to reign by good luck
There is something about the year 1999... It seems so ominous. This probably says a lot about the mystical power Nostradamus has over people. I remember wondering as a young kid what terrible things would happen in 1999 after hearing about the above Nostradamus prophecy (1999 seemed so far in the future back then, but here we are!) even though I did not really know what the prophecy actually said or meant. I feel this applies to a lot of people. In fact, what is perhaps most mysterious about Nostradamus is how people regard him as one of the greatest prophets in history without knowing even one of his fulfilled prophecies, or any of his prophecies for that matter. The reality is that there are very few prophecies of his that can be considered to be clearly fulfilled. This is mainly due to the vague and enigmatic wording of his prophecies which allows numerous interpretations. This causes some people to dismiss the prophecies as a clever trickery at the same time it causes some people to think virtually every events in the world are predicted by Nostradamus. It is really remarkable how poorly the prophetic quatrains have been interpreted and/or presented even by the perceived "experts". The usual pattern is they try to present their extremely subjective 'interpretations' as what Nostradamus "said" or "meant" as if they can speak for him. Most of those who discuss the prophecies nullify the distinction between what Nostradamus actually wrote and what they think the words mean, which is a big no-no in terms of maintaining objectivity, and it becomes the source of the much confusion that surrounds Nostradamus' prophecies. In my view, most, if not all, interpretations of the prophecies that you find in books are shallow, prejudiced and ultimately useless. They don't even begin to delineate the mystical depth and the potential the prophetic quatrains possess.
What is the true nature of the prophecies of Nostradamus then? And how useful are they? As we are getting so close to the ominous 1999 date, it is inevitable that Nostradamus and one specific quatrain, numbered X-72, will get much attention of the world, and I felt it was important and a good opportunity to put out some extensively-analyzed and unmisleadingly-presented information on the Internet in conjunction with Quatrain X-72 that would potentially answer those questions. 1999 will be a defining moment for Nostradamus and the prophecies of Nostradamus will likely have a very different value in people's minds afterwards, and it is my hope and belief that the unique information provided on this page will assist and encourage the process in a productive way. It is likely that the readers who have not followed my work, even if they are very familiar with Nostradamus' prophecies, will be surprised by my approach as it has very little in common with others' takes on the prophecies. The key difference is the very extensive, dynamic, and correlative symbology involved in my analysis.
While Nostradamus/Quatrain X-72 is the central topic of this discourse, as you read on you will see that the true issue is not predicting the future or proving the validity of the prophecy. What happens is that the quatrain begins to function as a tool that guides us to notice connections between various events or concepts across space and time that are otherwise seemingly unrelated. In other words, the quatrain, through its deep symbology, pushes one to notice subltle order in chaos, and have a perspective that transcends the dimension of linear time. (The same applies to other quatrains also, not just X-72.) The result is that one begins to see the 'big picture', the larger 'reality', instead of just idly speculating about the future. And then it will be seen that to know the (potential) future is to know the past and perceive the 'big picture'. The apparent obscurity of the wording of the quatrains is not an attempt to trick people or be safe, but more likley due to his using the language of 'symbolism' which resonates with inter-temporal concepts and patterns which are the ingredients for shaping the 'big picture'.
Speaking of the "big picture", one of the key elements of this article will be the Hollywood movies which in my view contain a lot of 'hints' about the 'big picture', as you'd know if you have followed my web site for the past year or so. There will be numerous references to various major movies (which I hope you all have seen), and the 'side effect' of this will be more confirmation that the there are those in media/entertainment industry who are very aware of the 'big picture' and planting hints in their products. Also, if you haven't already, I encourage the readers to read 'The Elysian Fields', 'Babylon Matrix' and/or 'The Nile Time-map Theory' (all written by this author) elsewhere on this web site as there will be references to those works and it would be helpful if the reader is familiar with these.
The phrase "Final Solution" in the title has both positive and negative meanings. It is positive in that the following may be the 'final solution' to the enigmatic quatrain, X-72, which suggests in turn the return of somthing that has been lost for so long to 'finally solve' a great mystery. The negative implications on the other hand.... Well, it turns out that the 'big picture' ain't so pretty.
(The presention on this page is not as organized or detailed as I want it to be, but it will be updated/revised from time to time.)
Au reuolu du grand nombre septiesme,
Apparoistra au temps ieux d'Hecatombe:
Non esloigne' du grand aage milliesme,
Que les entrez sortiront de leur tombe.
The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
It will appear at the time of the games of slaughter:
Not far from the great millennial age,
When the buried will go out from their tombs.
This quatrain is quite striking. Line 1 could correspond to the "7 months" ("The year 1999 and seven months") part of X-72, and also to the next millennium (beginning from 2001) which is the seventh millennium counting from 4000 BC which marks religiously, Masonically, historically, etc. the beginning of history. The Age of Aquarius which is just about to begin in our epoch can also be viewed as the 'seventh' age counting from the Age of Leo (roughly 10,970BC~8810BC). The reason for counting from the Age of Leo is because, among other things, it is one of the epochs encoded archaeoastronomically in the Giza monuments - the pyramids and the Sphinx (according to Robert Bauval's 'Star Correlation Theory'. See 'The Message of the Sphinx') that corresponds to the 'First Time'. So, in various ways the first line can refer to the epoch of 2000 AD, especially considering the third line which says "not far from the millennial age".
The "game of slaughter" of the second line can easily relate to the Olympic Games which started in Greece as a pure athletic festival but in the Roman culture degenerated into violence and greed - i.e. the 'game of slaughter'. So, again, this relates to Jupiter (remember, Olympics honor Zeus/Jupiter), with a subtle reference to Rome again. More remarkable is the fact that the Olympic stadium for the Sydney Olympics in 2000 is built in Homebush Bay which used to be 'The Homebush Slaughter Yards'!
By the way, isn't it interesting that the last summer Olympics before 1999 was held in Atlanta (=> 'Atlantis') in '98? (Yep, hints are everywhere.) Also, the Olympics became a 'game of slaughter' when it was held in '72, the year of the key number, at Munich, Germany, the very home of Nazism, as during the event eight Arab terrorists attacked the quarters of the Israeli team and ended up in 17 deaths, as if to accentuate the symbolism involved (72, Nazism/Germany, etc.).
The fourth line, "when the buried will go out from their tombs", is.... well, remarkable isn't it? As mentioned earlier, Osiris (and Pluto, and to some degree Saturn) is the god of the dead/underworld. Both Osiris and Saturn have been associated with the Golden Age/'First Time'/'Atlantis'. So, you can see what the line implies. The supposed "Martians" of the remote viewers are semi-dead underground. Some survivors of the Atlanteans have supposedly gone underground (of earth), according to some sources (why is 'Atlas', in mythology, said to carry the world on his shoulders? Makes one wonder). So, the line may be a predicting the lost race finally 'coming out' of their 'hibernation'. Also, more symbolically and perhaps more plausibly, it may simply refer to the re-surfacing of the lost ancient 'knowledge', as the term 'the dead', in a old gnostic view, referred to 'the uninitiated'/unenlightened/those without the sacred knowledge. Thus the the phrase 'dead/buried coming out of their tomb' can mean that the unenlightened general public is finally initiated into the Secret. All those different levels of interpretation all interact to depict the 'big picture'. Century IV-28
Lors que Venus du Sol sera couuert, Soubs l'esplendeur sera forme occulte: Mercure au feu les aura descouuert, Par bruit bellique sera mis a` l'insulte.
When Venus will be covered by the Sun, Under the splendor will be a hidden form: Mercury will have exposed them to the fire, Through warlike noise it will be insulted.
Summary of information obtained through Brenda (CWN vol.1):
Venus would be behind the sun as seen from the Earth
What might be called a "UFO" approaches from the direction of Venus (temporarily hidden by the sun)
Scientists/astronomers find an anomaly and realize it is an extraterrestrial ("Watcher") instrument to observe mankind
This is likely to take place in '97 or '98.
This realization causes social unrest.
First, let's look at the biggest celestial event in recent years, Comet Hale-Bopp that appeared brightly in the sky in '97. The climax of Hale-Bopp during March-April '97 coincided with Venus going 'behind the sun'. Also, Hale-Bopp's perihelion (closest to the sun and brightest) was April 1, which, besides being April Fool's Day, is the day of the 'Veneralia' - the festival of 'Venus'. Interestingly, Hale-Bopp came to be linked, in the public's mind, to the issue of 'ETs'/'UFO' through the big news of 'Heaven's Gate' cult mass suicide that occurred approximately at the time when Hale-Bopp came closest to Earth (late March). The members of the cult apparently believed that ETs were behind the comet. Also, there had been quite a buzz, especially on the Internet, that there was some kind of 'UFO' following the comet (this was prompted mainly by a hoax/disinformation), which probably influenced the Heaven's Gate members to some degree. It should also be noted that on March 13, '97, just before Hale-Bopp's climax and the mass suicide, there was a major "UFO" event over the city of Phoenix (Arizona, US). It should not be overlooked that 'phoenix' is a mythical bird that symbolizes rebirth/resurrection - the key theme discussed on this page.
Whether or not Hale-Bopp had some kind of connection to extraterrestrial intelligence, it is intriguing that the event quite closely resembles the predictive information and quatrain above.
By adding the following yet another coinciding event to the mix, we begin to see clearer the ritualistic aspect of the events. On March 25, perfectly coinciding with the 'Heaven's Gate' incident and Hale-Bopp's closest approach to Earth (March 22), former president George Bush jumped off a plane and fell to the earth - he did skydiving. It took place in Arizona - where the 'Phoenix Lights' occurred in the same month. At the time Bush was 72 years old (there it is again, # '72'). The 'ritual' aspect of the event is strengthened by the fact that Bush is identified as a member of a shadowy fraternity 'Skull and Bones'. The name, 'Skull and Bones', could easily relate to one of the symbols the legendary Knights Templar, to which various secret societies seem to have some kind of connection, used. Therefore, it doesn't seem to be just a happy coincidence that Bush's skydiving was accompanied by the members of the Army's precision parachuting team called the 'Golden Knights'.
The implication of the 'ritual' appears to concern the "fallen angels" (represented by Bush's fall from the sky) as in the aforementioned Annunaki/Nephilim who are in essence the bridge between the "gods" and humans. In a way, those 'fallen angels' opened the "Heaven's Gate" for humans and united the heaven and earth. Congruently, 'April' means 'to open' (remember that Hale-Bopp's perihelion was April 1). The philosophy of the members of Heaven's Gate cult that it was time to move on to the "Level Above Human" fits nicely into the symbology. The theme would be that there was an intervention of the 'fallen angels' that in a way liberated humans. This is the story of Prometheus stealing 'fire' from the gods and giving it to humans in Greek mythology. From the strong 'ET' associations in the apparent ritual of March '97, it can be derived that the story of the 'fallen angels' has indeed something to do with extraterrestrial intelligence.
What's more remarkable is that when Venus came back to be behind the sun again around November '98, there was a sense of déjà vu as very similar strange things happened, corroborating and adding to the above interpretation and associations:
The key to the Glenn/NASA ritual is the #7. In essence, the main motivation behind sending Glenn into space again appears to be him being '77' years old, to commemorate something symbolized by #7. The relevance of the number for the mission could be seen in the fact that the patch of the shuttle mission incorporated into its design the number '7' - quite clearly, but disguised enough to let unwitting people not really notice or inquire. There is no good reason why #7 should be so relevant to the mission as to be featured in the patch (yes, the mission had 7 crewmen, but it's not unique for a shuttle mission), except if it's symbolically/ritualistically important. Strengthening this view is the fact that Washington DC, where Glenn had been residing as a U.S. senator, is exactly at 77° W 39° N - the longitude exactly matching Glenn's age Furthermore, the latitude, 39°, corresponds to the launch date 10/29 (10+29=39), and the number of people died in the Heaven's Gate mass suicide. '39' itself is significant also as it is 19.5x2 (for the importance of '19.5', refer to Babylon Matrix). (One might also ask 'why is the capital of US at 77° W 39° N in the first place?' But that's a little outside of the scope of this particular article.)
So what's the significance of #7? First of all, virtually anyone would regard it as a 'lucky number', which would then relates to the swastika/Atlantis/Hermes/Mercury/etc. discussed earlier. John Glenn being an old hero also relates to Saturn/Osiris/etc., the ruler of the 'Golden Age'. And conformably, the Golden Age is associated with the Age of Gemini (Gemini is astrologically ruled by Mercury/Hermes => 'good luck' / #7)), roughly 6640BC~4490BC. To make the connection even stronger, John Glenn went into space the first time ('62) in a craft named 'Friendship 7' powered by the 'Atlas' rocket ('Atlantis' = 'land of Atlas'), as part of NASA's 'Mercury'
program! The logo of the Mercury program again features #7 within the astrological sign for Mercury. The program that succeeded the Mercury program was the Gemini program, which utilized rockets named 'Titan II' ('Titans' are members of the group of "gods" lead by Saturn). Furthermore, the space program that succeeded the Gemini program was the Apollo program whose logo inexplicably shows the constellation of Orion/Osiris within its design, and Osiris also happens to be a god that was associated with #7 (as well as the moon). And the Apollo missions were powered by rockets named 'Saturn'. Isn't it just bizarre that those names and symbols used (Gemini, Mercury, Atlas, Titan, Apollo, Osiris, Saturn, #7, etc.) are not directly relevant to the goal of going to the Moon? However, it makes perfect sense when looked at in light of the hidden ritualistic agenda being discussed, doesn't it? It should also be noted that Glenn being the first one to orbit the earth correlates Saturn being the 'First King'. So, all combined, it can be viewed that the implied theme of the Glenn mission concerns the Golden Age of Saturn/Osiris/Gemini/Mercury.
We can go even further and derive more specific implication of the 'ritual'. 'Seven', other than being the 'lucky #', signifies the concept of a 'cycle' as David Jinks who also picked up on the significance of '7' in Glenn's mission states:
"Seven, it is worth noting here, has long been associated with cycles. For example, in the process of cell division there is a cycle of change composed of eight phases and seven intervals, with the eighth phase signaling a return to the beginning state. The musical octave is characterized by a similar cycle, as is the light spectrum and the lunar month. Seven also provides a template for biology and matter in the universe. The geometry of the five Platonic solids, for example, fits perfectly into the 3D, seven-interval symbol, the "flower of life," as does the geometry of the DNA molecule's three essential amino acids. The functional patterns of the human system, specifically that of the nervous system, is also characterized by seven phases."
So the Glenn shuttle mission may have implicated the end of a cycle and coming back to where it began, the Golden Age. Glenn, the first one to orbit the earth, 'resurrected' to orbit the planet again as the oldest one ever, clearly implies the destined resurrection of the Saturnian realm - i.e. resurfacing of the Golden Age, "Atlantis", or metaphorically Saturn/Osiris coming out of their 'life-in-death'.

The first thing to note is that 'Novi Sad' means something like 'New Garden' and it is on latitude 45 degrees North. This combination of the city of 'New Garden' 'burning' at '45 N' strongly directs one's attention to Nostradamus' Quatrain VI-97which mentions "45 degrees", "fire"/'buring'/"flame", "new city", etc.:
Cinq & quarante degrez ciel bruslera
Feu approcher de la grand cite' neuue
Instant grand flamme esparse sautera
Quand on voudra des Normans faire preuue.
Forty five degrees the sky will burn,
Fire to approach the great new city
In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
When they want to have proof of the Normans.
It should be said that this quatrain is one of the few quatrains that I've been considering to be very relevant to this time period just as I illustrated in 'Babylon Matrix', 'TheElysian Fields', and the 'CWN-Analysis' stuff before that which is now already about 4 years old or so. So, this is not one of those entirely hindsighted associations. The relevance of VI-97 to this current period (around the turn of the millennium) had already been noticed and extensively discussed.
It is interesting to note that the date, 4/5, easily relates to '45', and also it happens that Novi Sad became the capital of the Province of Vojvodina in '45. Furthermore, 'Normandy' - where the "Normans" came and lived - in France happens to be the place where Allied troops came and drove out the Nazis on 6/6/44 in WWII - paralleling the 'Allied Force' attacking the Nazi-compared Serbs. The Nazis, remember, has been symbolically linked to Apr. 5 - the day of 'Lady Luck' - through the 'good luck'-swastika association. Let me point out also that the following date, Apr. 6, is the date (in '41) on which the Nazis invaded Yugoslavia during WWII.
It gets even more intriguing when Pan Am 103 is added to the correlation. First, it needs to be mentioned that the same Quatrain VI-97 had been very closely associated to another notorious plane crash - TWA 800 (as shown in 'Babylon Matrix'). And again, somehow, another major and equally notorious place crash, Pan Am 103, comes to relate to the same quatrain. Besides the timing (i.e. coinciding with the bombing of Novi Sad), an interesting correlation can be made with VI-97's fourth line, "When they want to have proof of the Normans", as one of the Scottish prosecutors for the trial is named 'Norman' (McFadyen) as mentioned in the news article. Obviously, the "proof of (the) Norman(s)" is to be a key part of the trial, thus nicely fitting the line.
Next, the involvement of Scotland in the Pan Am 103 incident turns out to be significant through Scotland's strong historical connection to the Masonic/Templar tradition from which the stories of the Ark/Grail cannot be separated. What fills the gaps between the issues (Pam Am 103/Scotland, Ark/Grail, VI-97, etc.) is yet another plane crash, the crash of Swissair 111 (Sept. 2, '98) off Nova Scotia, Canada, which was en route from NYC to Geneva, Switzerland. It is one of the most recent major airplane crashes. It is rather congruent that a recent major plane crash, Swissair 111, is to be linked, as we will see, with both TWA 800 and Pan Am 103, as both of those two airplane incidents made the headlines recently (the story of TWA 800's crash itself, and the story about the handover of the suspects of Pan Am 103) and both are hypothesized to be connected to Quatrain VI-97.
The link between TWA 800 and Swissair 111 is insinuated by the fact that both crashed mysteriously soon after taking off from NYC. Those incidents were only about 1 year apart (July '97 and Sept. '98). The connection between Swissair 111 and Pan Am 103 is first suggested in the name 'Nova Scotia' (where the Swissair 111 crash occurred) which means 'New Scotland' (Pan Am 103 exploded over Scotland). Notice that the "New" part can relate to VI-97's "new city" and it also happens that Nova Scotia is nicely bisected by the "45 degrees" N latitude, and Nova Scotia is historically closely connected with France (=> "Normans"). Furthermore, Swissair 111's destination Switzerland is roughly at "45 degrees" N., and the name Switzerland is derived from a word that means 'to burn' - as in "45 degrees the sky will burn" (!) (it's, therefore, interesting that the capital of Switzerland is called 'Bern'), strengthening the connection between Swissair 111 and VI-97.
And here are some Scotland-Nova Scotia connections that will shift the focus to the new 'associative matrix' of Ark/Grail. It happens that Nova Scotia, like Scotland, is also involved in the Templar tradition and the 'Holy Grail'. Nova Scotia, it turns out, is exactly where the 'Holy Grail' (whatever it may represent) is theorized by some scholars to have been taken by the Knights Templar. In support of this theory, the region of Nova Scotia and the land around it was called 'Acadia' by the French which closely resembles 'Arcadia' which is a term that is very closely associated with the Grail tradition.
The involvement of Switzerland is also very significant as it is a country theorized by some to be founded by the Templars - the country's flag (white cross on red background - the reverse of the Templar symbol of 'red/rose cross') and its famous banking business (the Templars essentially founded the banking system we use today) strongly suggests this, for example. It is also interesting to note that Switzerland is located largely on the Alps which forms a big 'arc' (that separates Italy, France and Switzerland) potentially relatable to the 'Ark' theme. Additionally, the word 'arktos', in Greek, resembling 'ark', refers to the constellation Ursa Major known to Egyptians as 'the thigh' - which can be correlated with the Alps/Switzerland because as you probably know Italy is shaped like a leg with a high-heel shoe and if you consider the size of the foot/shoe, anatomically the land of Italy would correspond to the calf and the Alps/Switzerland region would correspond to the thigh!
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois,
Du ciel viendra vn grand Roy d'effrayeur:
Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois,
Auant apres Mars regner par bon-heur.
The year 1999 seven month,
From the sky will come a great King of terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois,
Before after Mars to reign by good luck
The first thing I'd like to mention here is that with the incorporation of VI-97, the perplexing "Angolmois" of X-72's third line starts to yield correlation. What I noticed was that the old French Province 'Angoumois' was located on the latitude 45 degrees N. Though I'm sure there are more meanings to the third line, this new correlation definitely corroborates the link between X-72 and VI-97.
Now, before we can start linking the 'Ark' theme with X-72, we'll have to look into the concept of 'ark' a little more. First thing to mention is that Noah's ark relates to 'Argo', a great mythological ship in Greek myth. The myth tells that the guiding timber of the Argo was taken from the ark of Deukalion, the Greek Noah. There is also the constellation Argo which is said to represent the mythological Argo, naturally, and Noah's ark. So, the Argo and Noah's ark seem to be more or less interchangeable.
On the ship Argo were 50 'Argonauts' and the leader of whom was 'Jason'. Here we have our first breakthrough. The name 'Jason', according to Robert Temple ('Sirius Mystery') means 'appeaser'. In '1999: Final Solution', if you recall, it was mentioned that even though it is almost always translated as "King of terror", the original French words of X-72's second line may well have been "Roy deffraieur", instead of "Roy d'effrayeur", in which case the meaning changes to something like 'appeasing King'! Whichever the original French words may be, both are so similar that I'd say both "appeasing King" and "King of terror" were meant. (As we will see, punning is a serious method of communicating esoteric knowledge.)
Next, let us examine the etymology of the word, 'ark'. According to Temple, the words 'ark', 'Argo', etc. are likely derived from the Egyptian words, 'arq' and 'arqi'. It is, then, intriguing that the Great Sphinx which the Arabs call the 'Father of Terror' (thus relating to the 'King of Terrors' of X-72 as discussed in '1999: FS'), is also called 'arq ur' (7/1 Update: this may not be accurate information) - making another link with X-72. Furthermore, 'arki' and some other 'arq'-related words refer to Saturn, the most significant interpretive element applied to X-72 in '1999: FS'.
The next development, which will add a whole new dimension to the issues being discussed, is the connection between Argo/ark and Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky and the celestial counterpart of Isis (the relevance of Isis was brought up in '1999: FS'). Temple does a very extensive exposition on how the myth of Argo/ark relates to Sirius, mainly through the number '50' and the notion of 'weight'. For example, as mentioned earlier, the Argo held '50' Argonauts. It also carried '50' daughters of Danaos. The reason '50' is important is because the orbital period of Sirius B around Sirius is 50 years. Sirius B is a dark, small, and "heavy" 'white dwarf' that is a great contrast to its very bright companion, Sirius. As Temple shows in his book, this 'invisible' Sirius B somehow seems to be as important as Sirius, if not more important, to some unclear 'source' that gave us mythological stories which apparently are a secret information passed down through history in 'coded' forms. Sirius B should not have been known to ancient people, yet there appear to be many coded references to Sirius B in myths. But in the case of the Dogon people in southwest Africa, their tradition preserved information about our solar system and the Sirius system not metaphorically but literally - which prompted Temple to investigate the matter originally. And the Dogon literally claimed that Sirius B, which they called 'Digitaria', had a 50-year orbit around Sirius when they shouldn't have even known that there is a dark companion to Sirius.
We are also told that the Anunnaki, the Sumerian 'gods' who were discussed in '1999: FS', were also 50 in number and called 'the fifty great gods' thus also associated with Sirius also. Moses' Arkof the Covenant, too, comes to be involved with 50, thus Sirius also, as it was to Moses that "God" commanded to establish the 50-year cycle of 'year of jubilee - strengthening the link between Noah's ark and the Ark of the Covenant. Temple further points out that the "foot race" which was the origin of the Olympic Games was held at the end of the 50 months or 49 months in alternate years. The switching between 50 and 49 is intriguing since Sirius B's orbital period is somewhat less than 50 years and the alternate counting can be seen as a way of adjusting to match Sirius B's orbit. At any rate, again there is a connection with X-72 as the Olympics was a key theme in '1999: FS'.
The incorporation of Sirius behaves likes a big piece of the puzzle and yields more and more connections. For example, Sirius B was in some ways compared to Mercury - and Mercury/Gemini is of course one of the big themes in '1999: FS'. Also, Anubis, a mythological character Temple associates with the orbit of Sirius B, happened to be identified with Saturn - again a major element derived from X-72, etc. 'Seven', also a major theme derived in '1999: FS', is not left out as Sirius was known to Egyptians as 'Sept' which in French (and probably in other languages too) means 'seven', the 'lucky' number. So, the first line of X-72, "1999 and seven months ('sept mois')", could be seen as '1999 and the month of Sirius'... but it would point to July anyway as July was the month of Sirius' important 'heliacal rising'. It's all coming together.
It is carefully and convincingly illustrated by Temple that Sirius is related to the idea of 'weight/heavy'. Interestingly, the Egyptian word, 'tchens', also meaning 'weight/heavy', resembles 'chance' which is almost synonymous with 'luck'. I feel it's possible that there is a connection there. But more significantly, the notion of 'weight' connects Sirius and Argo as the main/brightest star in the Argo constellation, Canopus, is also known as 'Wazn', 'Weight'. And it is said that Enki, the Sumerian Saturn, ruled Canopus.
7/1/99 Update :
Now, here we need to temporarily come back to Quatrain VI-97.
Forty five degrees the sky will burn,
Fire to approach the great new city
In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
When they want to have proof of the Normans.
The key information relevant here came from a message that 'Gary' posted to an online discussion forum. In it, it was pointed out that the name 'Newton' is derived from 'new town' (=> "new city"). Also:
"Celsius proved Newton's theory that the earth is flattened at the poles, by observing the Aurora borealis, (the northern lights) [i.e. 'burning sky']. [...] Celsius' name is derived from "the Sky". Celsius was also Norman, as in being a Nordic Northman from Sweden."
Although the correlation presented was rough, I was intrigued by how it can be correlated with my interpretations of VI-97/X-72. What is Newton famous for? Gravity. How did he discover gravity? The story goes that Newton discovered it by seeing an apple falling from a tree. 'Gravity' is of course synonymous with 'weight/heaviness' - the concept just associated with Sirius/Ark. The 'apple'... I don't think I need to point out its significance. The 'falling' (of the apple) part also correlates to the "fallen angels" (Anunnaki/Nephilim).
It seemed to me that Newton could be nicely incorporated into the developing associative model. This new apparent connection then prompted my mind to wonder whether Newton had a connection with an Ark/Grail-related esoteric society. Soon, I was fascinated to remember that Newton is indeed identified by some sources as a Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion, a secret organization theorized to be closely linked with the Knights Templar!
Thus, as you can see, the Newton-association nicely confirms the key associations derived earlier
