THE INFLUENCE OF CYCLICAL PROCESSES ON THE FATE OF PEOPLE AND CIVILIZATIONS
Surviving papyruses tell of priests who predicted the future. They based their forecasts on the rhythms of certain cosmo-planetary energy influences that have a fateful influence of all things living and non-living on our planet. These influences have their own specific periodicity or cyclicality.
Precise calculation could indicate not only the most likely period for possible natural cataclysms connected with processes taking place in the cosmos, but also determine favourable or unfavourable periods for the taking of state or political decisions of one kind or another.
This knowledge that at one time was complete became lost over the centuries. What survived was wrapped in a veil of mystery and remained the property of a very narrow circle of people. In time fragmentary information about the cyclical processes was retained only by a few initiates, one of which was Nostradamus.
Despite the efforts of several generations of researchers who have studies the prophecies of Nostradamus, the secret that lies behind them has not been uncovered and the conclusions drawn by the researchers have directed humanity’s gaze away from the main idea.
There is, of course, a logic to this. Nostradamus, like generations of Ancient Egyptian priests who knew the secret, did all he could to conceal the knowledge itself and what lay behind his prophecies from the eyes of the uninitiated. To that end Nostradamus encoded his predictions, showing that he had the same attitude as the priests like Hesi-Ra who encoded their knowledge in their time.
There were several reasons for such secrecy, but in this section we shall focus on the main one – ethics. The other reasons will be examined in detail in the book The Hierophants.
The significance of what lies behind the greatest priestly secret goes far beyond existing concepts of the world around us and the structure of the universe. Insight into this secret provides unlimited opportunities to influence the world. But existing concepts of morality and ethics impose serious limitations, obliging those in possession of the knowledge to reflect on their spiritual and karmic responsibility for the fate of the world and the negative consequences that will inevitably arise if the knowledge comes into the possession of the “uninitiated” – those who do not recognize the consequences because of spiritual immaturity, narrow-mindedness and aggression.
The description of the Earth’s future in Nostradamus’s prophecies is effectively his explanation of why he encoded access to the main knowledge.
The ethical reason for such a decision is this: to be able to read, understand and appreciate the knowledge recorded in a special language (code) based on the principles that lie behind the knowledge itself, means to master that knowledge and to attain a level where consciously influencing the course of historical events becomes a possibility. Such an ability is the province of the initiated.
Sharing the concerns of the ancient priests and Nostradamus, in this section we shall only shed a little light on one aspect of the ancient knowledge relating to the theme of cyclicality.
Many generations of scholars tried to discover how the prophecies recorded by Nostradamus were encoded, yet the solution, which proved to be quite simple, but full of meaning, but was there on every page.
If you open a copy of the Centuries, you will see that the text consists of quatrains — verses of four lines each. And the key to the code is the figure 4. Nostradamus made the basis of his code the “four-year cycles” (the 12-year cycle consists of three phases of four years) that determine not only the stages in the evolution of human society, but also a whole range of events that take place in the solar system. From that knowledge of the cyclical nature of processes, Nostradamus states directly:
«I reckon that in the future roughly the same number of events should take place as in the centuries that have passed».
Now let us examine what he meant, taking as an example the history of Russia over the past century.
Since that the starting dates of the calendars of the world’s major civilizations were not chosen by chance and were strictly tied to important historical events and cyclical processes, we can start calculating from the first year of any century and see one and the same pattern:
1901 add on four years gives = 1905 and continuing : 1909, 1913, 1917, 1921, 1925, 1929, 1933, 1937, 1941, 1945, 1949, 1953, 1957, 1961, 1965, 1969, 1973, 1977, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2005... (See Appendix 2)
Anyone with a knowledge of history will immediately notice that almost all the above dates are connected to very important milestones in the destiny of Russia. It should be stated at once that this scale applies not only to Russia. Therefore as we return to Nostradamus’s quatrains which speak of pairs of events sometimes considerably separated from each other in time we should understand that he refers to events marking the beginning or end of a four-year cycle, or rather a twelve- (4×3) or thirty-six-year ((4×3)×3) cycle. While in the four-year cycle dates may come up that do not correspond to any epoch-making events, the twelve- and thirty-six-year cycles are always marked by such events. And so, when examining the prophecies of Nostradamus, we should base our calculations on the latter cycles.
Today, knowing what has already taken place in the century drawing to a close, we can predict with a very high degree of probability the years which will be marked by the most significant events in the future: 2009, 2013, 2017, 2021 и 2025 and so on.
It should be stressed that more than once Nostradamus himself directed attention to the number 4 and even in his will he gave instructions for his coffin to be surrounded by four one-livre candles, two on each side.
One gets the impression that he wanted mankind to recognize this pattern for itself — and having recognized it to try, by damping down the tensions that arise, to construct relationships with each other and with the surrounding world in a positive manner with the four-year cycle in mind so that when we reached the year 1999 we would avoid the start of the 27-year war that Nostradamus foresaw. Already today it is evident that the conditions that had come together by the autumn of 1997 did not fortunately lead to the outbreak of the prolonged war he forecast. Yet, with the continuation of the four-year cycle in the next century in mind, we cannot afford to relax since there are several dates ahead to which the fateful event might shift. Knowing the special significance of the twelve-year cycle and also the dynamic development of a positive awareness in mankind, we can say with near certainty that if the war does not begin by 2025, then, having passed through the critical phase, it will not begin at all.
Increased activity of masses of people and the radical events that sometimes occur in society are directly connected with surges in solar activity that are in turn governed by the four-year cycle.
But that is far from all. For reasons of a cosmic nature precisely once every four years Venus, moving strictly according to its “timetable”, suddenly slows down, while Mars at that moment accelerates. At that same point in time Janus and Epimetheus, two moons of Saturn, change their orbits, and here on Earth a new El Niño current appears in the Pacific. The appearance of that current is caused by changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field due to a powerful outside influence. Those changes in turn are the cause not only of major natural disasters, but also of almost all air crashes and other technical accidents since navigation systems and other electronic safety devices are to a certain extent dependent on the Earth’s electromagnetic field.
Take a look at the statistics, and you will see a surge of air crashes and natural disasters of different kinds took place in the countries of the Pacific basin between autumn 1997 and autumn 1998.
All the most dramatic events take unfold roughly over the year between the autumn of the one year and the autumn of the next. 1997 saw the end of one four-year cycle and start of the next. The choice of 1997 in this context is due to the fact that this, in a certain sense prophetic material was first published in that year.
Bearing in mind that in their predictions the ancients based themselves upon just this pattern, let us recall how things have developed since then.
The year 2001 was one on which the shadow of Nostradamus’s predictions fell. It was not only the final year that completed a 4-year cycle, but also the end of the previous and the beginning of the next 12-year cycle, the initial phase of which is always marked by epoch-making events.
On 11 September 2001 the world saw how relative the concept of “time” is, separating us from Nostradamus who foretold a terrible war. Today we stand on the brink of it. It is evident that humanity is poor at learning the lessons of history and the wisdom of the ancients and is thus doomed in future to move down a thorny path.
Four more years went by and the approaching 2005 brought the massive Indian Ocean tsunami that cost hundreds of thousands of lives, the “Orange Revolutions”, the Beslan tragedy, an upsurge of violence and terrorism in the Middle East, in Britain, riots and burning cars in France, and so on, and so on. The active phase of changes and unrest in human society could be expected to last until late autumn 2006. Failing to recognize the influence of the invisible factor, the world community permitted a new spiral of escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, an upsurge in terrorism and the outbreak of war between Lebanon and Israel, while the planet reacted with earthquakes and the tsunami in Indonesia.
And that is not all, back in 1997 the first edition of The Wands of Horus contained the following passage:
«It is important to stress that changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field always have had and continue to have a negative effect on the health and immune systems of humans and animals. Despite the fact that the peak of the negative phase of the current cycle (1997–1998) has already passed, it is quite possible that after the peaks in 2001 (until autumn 2002) and 2005 (until autumn 2006) we may hear of the appearance of some new epidemics among animals. We should note that under certain circumstances an increased intensity in the Earth’s electromagnetic field may lead to the appearance of immuno-deficit disorders in animals that will be passed on to humans. (See Appendix 3)».
And that is just what happened! We learnt of deadly viruses affecting animals and bird flu that, if passed to humans, cause very serious symptoms and even death! As you will have seen by now, the four-year cycles are a reality that the ancients knew about. Suffice it to recall that an Ancient Egyptian calendar cycle lasted 1460 days. Divide 1460 by 365 and you get exactly four. In other words the Ancient Egyptians thought and measured their lives in four-year cycles.
It was partly for this reason too that the Ancients built astronomical observatories with a degree of precision that is surprising even in our own time. By observing and calculating the phases of the moon, the Sun and the other planets, the Ancients worked out the cycles and certain natural factors that are superimposed on them, predicting the possible future in order to prepare for it; using the positive phases of the cycle to attain particular goals or, by anticipating the negative phases, reducing the potential for problems to a minimum.
The upsurges of activity in human society and natural cataclysms are the result of hidden cosmo-planetary energetic influences. They stimulate and fuel events taking place on Earth and in space because they carry a certain energy potential within them. Suffice it to say that the four-sided pyramid is the embodiments of the principle of the four-part cycle that is a component of the 12-part one (3 phases of four months in a year, the four-year cycle, three phases of four years in a twelve-year cycle) to realize that the pyramid is tuned to the energy phases of the waves in the twelve-year cycle. That is why the pyramid is an antenna and resonator tuned to and amplifying particular flows of cosmic energy that are transformed by the Earth’s core. By tuning into these a human being has the chance to interact with cosmic forces!
Taking account of the dangerous phases of the twelve-year cycles and their negative effect on the human immune system, to harmonize the BA and KA and maintain the appropriate energy balance in the organism necessary for self-perfection, the Ancient Egyptians used a whole set of measures, an invariable part of which were the “Wands of Horus” or cylinders with various special fillings.
Table of four-year cycles
Fig. The three-stage phases of solar activity
Historical events develop within the framework of the twelve-year cycle in a way that is subject to a damping effect (see fig.1). That is to say, the first year of the first four-year period is the maximum. The beginning of the second four-year period is less active; the beginning of the third weaker still. Then comes another powerful impulse and so on. In the same way 12-year cycles are marked by some sort of epoch-making event.
Table of twelve-year cycles
* Many events making up human history are an indirect reflection of particular cyclical energy processes.
Upsurges in energy activity are a subtle stimulating factor affecting each human being and thus humanity as a whole, prompting us to courses of action that determine the dynamics of historical processes. Taking on material form, these phenomena prompt humanity to actions that determine the outcome of historical processes. However, since “common sense” sometimes gains the upper hand over emotions, there may be a temporal shift of some particular historical event, or something that should take place does not. It is for this reason that in the first phase of a twelve-year cycle that should be marked by major events, we occasionally witness a shift of a year or two, or indeed the year becomes insignificant. In the past century 1977 provides such an example.
Eight periods in the political life of Russia
(Eight twelve-year cycles)
The unshaded years were relatively insignificant, i.e. years without cataclysms, catastrophes or changes of political course (for Russia).
For comparison with the above, we also give a graph of sunspot activity in August each year, as solar activity also follows a four-year cycle (Fig.).
