Finally, I’m off the fucking psycho crazy shit and back to another topic. In truth, I just needed a break from it for a little while. I know you love to read about it, but there is other fucking shit wrong with this world besides crazy chicks.
So this one isn’t really a long post, but I wanted to get it out just the same. I was watching television and this show about Nostradamus was on. As always with this fucking guy, people were saying how he predicted all of these things that were going to happen in the future.
My fucking God, I get so annoyed when I hear people give him any credit for being a psychic, soothsayer, magical wizard who could predict the future. At best, the only credit you can possibly give him is that he was a cryptic reverse soothsayer.
To date, there has not been one single quatrain that he ever wrote that predicted the future. What happens is something occurs in the world and everyone goes to his quatrains and finds something that doesn’t even describe the event. It is just a cryptic quatrain that they believe predicted the future. But based entirely on how this process works, he didn’t predict a fucking thing. All it is something happening and then going BACK to the quatrains to find something that could possibly be interpreted as a prediction of something that has already happened.
Predictions are saying that something specific is going to happen, and then it does. It’s not having an event take place, reading a quatrain after the fact, and then “Oh, that’s what he meant by that bizarre ramble. He was predicting this.” That is completely upside down.
They even stretch it so far as to say that he predicted the rise of Hitler when he referred to the Hister …
In the place very near not far from Venus,
The two greatest ones of Asia and of Africa,
From the Rhine and Hister they will be said to have come,
Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian side.
Wow, they say. He was only off by one letter when he predicted Hitler. Ummmm, first of all he was off by two letters because you have to replace the s with an l, and then would have to invert the l and the t to make the name Hitler out of Hister.
Second, and most importantly, in the times of Nostradamus, the Danube river was called the Hister. So he is saying that from the Rhine river and the Hister river they will be said to have come. He didn’t predict Hitler. He was just referencing a fucking river. People are looking to interpret things they way they want to see them (much like a few women I know) … All Nostradamus wrote was a bunch of cryptic bullshit and was high as fuck when he did it. I’m serious. Read up on his process. He basically gets high, looks into a bowl of water, and writes quatrains about what he sees. Today, we call those people crackheads.
Edgar Cayce, and mind you I’m not saying he was a soothsayer either, was far closer to predicting the future than Nostradamus ever was. In 1938, he went into one of his crazy fucking trances and predicted that: “A portion of the temples may yet be discovered under the slime of ages and sea water near Bimini…Expect it in ’68 or ’69 — not so far away.”
He supposedly was making a prediction about the discovery of Atlantis. Well, the Bimini Road was discovered in 1968. There are people out there that believe they may be potions of Atlantian temples or roadways or canals or docks or whatever. Whether it’s actually Atlantis, who the fuck knows? Point is, he made a prediction. The discovery would be made near Bimini and would happen in either 1968 or 1969. Again, the Bimini road was discovered in 1968. He made this prediction in 1938.
That is predicting the future. That is giving dates, times, and locations well in advance and (if it’s a part of Atlantis) being correct. Nostradamus never did anything even remotely close to that.
Anyone can do what Nostradamus did. I’ll prove it to you. Write a quatrain that make absolutely no sense. Seal it in an envelope and mail it to yourself so that it will date stamped. Do not open the envelope for 365 days … Give it a whole year. Then, open the envelope and I guarantee you will be able to interpret what you wrote to be a prediction of something that happened somewhere in the world during the past year when your envelope was sealed away. You’ll have to go back and look for what happened and then make it fit your cryptic quatrain, but I guarantee you will be able to do it.
Here’s mine …
The rivers awash the sister city,
She folds and splinters among the twigs.
With the axe of the woodsman,
The eagle will see its blood.
In 365 days, I will find something that occurred over the course of the year that I can interpret to be exactly what I predicted in that quatrain of bullshit that I literally just made up.
Fucking Nostradamus … What a joke. You would think after the whole Mayan Doomsday thing came and went, people would stop believing in all of this “interpreting” messages. But we do live in a world of fucking morons, so …
Alas, that is all for this post. I had to get off the whole psychotic women subject for a bit. But don’t worry. I am actually creating a new category called “Diaries of a Bipolar Psycho.” Okay, so the name is a work in progress, but the tag is essentially, “Hey guys, pay attention here. I took the hit so you won’t have to.” Kinda catchy …
Seriously though, how many people need to be told that it is really fucking stupid to fuck over and piss off a writer who had a blog called “Fuck this World” …? I mean, how fucking stupid. The blog is pretty much about things that happen in my life, my work, and the world in general. So, if you personally fuck me over and/or personally piss me off, you’re going be in here.
Well, like I said, we live in a world of fucking morons.
Until next time … Fuck off
