Extraterrestrial Intervention: The Nostradamus Connection


There are three prophecies for which it is possible to refer to China, a country from which many visitors have found their way to this website. This article concerns the second of the three.


Nostradamus Quatrain VI-2


In the year five hundred eighty more or less,
Humankind awaits a strange era,
In the year seven hundred, and three skies in testimony,
That many kingdoms one to five shall make change.


This prophecy gives us a period that runs from 580 to 700. In the Pampa de Nazca, wooden stakes were placed in the ground to mark some of the lines. With the analysis of carbon-14, archaeologists have dated the wood to the sixth century, so the period indicated in this prophecy would be a good guess for the construction of the Nazca Lines.

The sky over Nazca has to be the first of the three skies. This makes perfect sense: the famous lines are only distinguishable when viewed from above, and so the sky is a witness that they were made. And it's not surprising that the alien talks about the Nazca Lines because, as established in Prophecy II-28 and others, he had ties to the Andes.

Earlier, in Prophecy I-49, we noted that the prophecies with dates prior to the lunar eclipse of 1982 required the use of a decryption key. Consequently, this prophecy has more to say.

In the year five hundred eighty more or less,

Remember the decryption key "plusieurs" (add one thousand years) that we first saw in Prophecy II-51. This key appears here in the last line of this prophecy and should apply to the entire stanza:

  Direct Date 580
  Add "plusieurs" key 1000
  Add the decryption key 252
  Deciphered Date 1832

Again we decipher a date in the nineteenth century. This time, obviously, the date is not exact but approximate because the words "plus & moins" which, apparently, should mean more or less. Similarly the "plusieurs" key (presented in the last verse) should apply to the entire stanza. Of course, the alien no doubt gives us approximate dates because the events of this stanza are occurring across a period of many years.

Humankind awaits a strange era,

The word "on" derives from the Latin "homo," man, humankind, and "attendra" comes from the Latin "attendere," observe. "Siecle", from the Latin "saeculum," era, age, can indicate more than a period of one hundred years, and the French "estrange" (from the Latin "extraneus") means strange, weird, inexplicable.

What was the strange age that humans were waiting for or observing? Believe it or not, this has to be our contemporary age in which man has changed a lot compared to how he lived thousands of years before. Thus, in 1832, people looked forward to the age of technology, something that contrasts sharply with the past.

Generally, we attribute the origins of our epoch to the Industrial Revolution which began in Britain in the mid-eighteenth century. However, historians have noted that this revolution did not begin in earnest until roughly 1830, that is, the progress made after 1830 greatly exceeded everything that had been achieved prior to that year. Then, in 1832, the world began observing an epoch of great advances in technology and the sciences.

Recalling the several prophecies refer or allude to the Falkland Islands (II-51, II-52, IV-89, V-35, and IX-49), note that on December 20, 1832, exact year, the HMS Clio arrived in Port Egmont to reclaim the Falkland Islands for England. Surely this is the real reason the alien gives us 1832. As we know, he wants to convince us of his knowledge of the Falkland Islands. One by one, he gives us all the important dates in the history of those islands.

And now we come to the third verse:

In the year seven hundred, and three skies in testimony,

This comes from the final publication, but in their first publication, the translators had another idea:

Nostradamus Quatrain VI-2 Variant 1

In the year seven hundred and three, skies in testimony,

In their second publication, the translators decided not to take a strong position on where to put the comma (,):

Nostradamus Quatrain VI-2 Variant 2

In the year seven hundred and three skies in testimony,

In the seventeenth century, some printers made an effort to clarify the situation:

Nostradamus Quatrain VI-2 Variant 3

In the year seven hundred and three (skies in testimony)

However, it is almost certain that the translators had nothing to do with the parentheses, invented by a charlatan in 1594, so we cannot confide in them.

We now know that the original Latin contained a comma (,) after the word hundred because a medieval commentary on this prophecy refers to a break in the numbers: Nona Semitic dicitur Munda Intelligencia, eo quod ipsa mundes numerationis, & probes emendetque exscissionem imaginis earum, disponatq unitatem earum that ipsi uniuntur absque detruncatione & divisione.

Apparently, the problem was that three skies seem to make little sense, casting doubts on how to translate. In the end, they decided it was best not to assume anything and translated literally, word for word, with the original punctuation.

What does this mean? It means that the alien wanted to use all the possibilities: the number 700 (see Prophecy IV-89), the number 703, and also the three skies.

Let's decode the second date:

  Direct Date 703
  Add "plusieurs" key 1000
  Add the decryption key 252
  Deciphered Date 1955

As explained above, it is likely that the term "plus & moins" governs the whole stanza and, therefore, the new date would also be approximate, that is, this verse refers to events that were taking place around the year 1955.

That many kingdoms one to five will make change.

The Latin "regnum," kingdom, would represent, in modern times, a nation or a country. Therefore, the phrase "un à cinq" implies a progression of nations from one to five, e.g., in the end there should have been five countries in total that made some kind of change.

The first country was the United States (1945), followed by the USSR (1949), Great Britain (1952), France (1952), and China (1964), a total of exactly five nations that conducted nuclear tests in the atmosphere. Subsequently, more countries joined the list but conducted their tests underground or underwater rather than in the atmosphere.

Considering the limited vocabulary of the ancient Latin language regarding our modern inventions, a word that means change serves well to denote a nuclear explosion which is essentially a change in the state of atoms.

The great age of nuclear tests in the atmosphere was the decade of the 1950s, in the middle of which we find the year 1955 that the alien has given us. It should also be noted that in the middle of the period running from July 1945 (when the Americans began the series of five countries) to October 1964 (date of the first nuclear explosion detonated by China, the last of the five nations) again we find the year 1955 is (more or less a perfect approximation).

Therefore, the second sky (of the three skies) would be the atmosphere, which is witness to the fact that these nuclear explosions had occurred.

Note that this prophecy continues the atomic bomb theme which began with the Hiroshima Prophecy (V-81).

What now would be the third sky? Let's look at Prophecy I-81:

Nostradamus Quatrain I-81 Variant 1

In the last line, note the three stars forming a triangle in the tail of the constellation Scorpius ("mors," the bite of a scorpion). According to an early catalog of stars, Lambda (λ Scorpii, also known as "Shaula") stands at a distance of 703 light years from Earth. If so, once again the sky (this time the night sky of the astronomers) would be a witness, testifying to the distance. Today, the distance to Shaula is believed to be less than 703 light years, but, of course, Shaula or 703 light years could remain relevant for some other purpose. See the SETI Sky Map Page for more information.

Finally, the three skies could also refer to three places where the alien was seen in the sky during the indicated time frame, for example, Tiahuanaco, Cuzco, and Nazca, or perhaps the intention would be Arabia, Babylonia, and the Andes.

Additional comment:

Note that between 580 (first line) and 703 (third line) we count 123 years. Note also that in the Prophecy VI-54, between 1859 (the first lunar eclipse) and 1982 (the second lunar eclipse) again we count 123 years. Thus, this prophecy is drawn to 1982, the year of the Falklands War, confirming that the alien was really thinking about the Falkland Islands when he gave us the date 1832.
