A Critique of Dolores Cannon’s Conversation with Nostradamus
(incl. Quatrain III 60)
The late Mrs. Cannon recalls a spooky conversation with Michel de Nostradame in this Youtube video:
She speaks of the coming Antichrist and his description of the common people as “the lice at his feet” according to Nostredame (or Michel is taking about the common people as the lice at his own feet, her grammar is not clear). Well, the Sixteenth Century was certainly lousy and Michel trained as a pharmacist so he should know (and there is talk now of mutant ‘superlice’ appearing amongst us) but aren’t lice more likely to be on your head and torso than at your feet? Perhaps Nostredame-cum-Cannon had meant “on his feet” instead of “at his feet”? An easy to understand breakdown of communication, perhaps.
Dolores also said that “he (Michel) mentioned Ogmios”. Well maybe, if you believe in her methods, yet see the EXTENDED FOOTNOTE to the Article EXPLORING THE LATE DOLORES CANNON’S ‘ANTICHRIST ACCORDING TO NOSTRADAMUS’ that begins
“There are references all through the ‘Opera Nostramus’ to an Ogmion (V 80) Ognion (IX 89) lomygon (VI 42) dogmion (VIII 84) but not Ogmios “the Celtic Hercules” whom most Nostradamus reasearchers have previously believed to be the inspiration for the aforementioned.”
She then dips into gematria. (See the Nostradamus Quatrain VI 18 THE HEBREW ART)
There are types that each show different results such as Jewish, English and Simple Gematria. Without knowing which one is in play she demonstrates that ‘worldwideweb’ equates to the 666 of Revelation and extrapolates that the Internet is the answer to the New Testament prediction known as ‘Mark of the Beast’.
Revelation 13:17-18 and that no one may be able to buy, or to sell, except he who is having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who is having the understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for the number of a man it is, and its number be 666. (Youngs Literal Translation Bible)
(Also see ‘666’ in the Article CYCLES NUMBERS SYMBOLS CHAINS AND LINKS TO NOSTRADAMUS)
It seems a little unfair that she may be confusing the carrier ‘Internet’, compiled from martial and educational networks, with that privately prepared, selflessly donated computer program ‘worldwideweb’. Using the Gematria website http://www.gematrix.org I found these contradistinct figures – with no trace of 666:
worldwideweb in Jewish Gematria Equals: 2879
worldwideweb in English Gematria Equals: 858
worldwideweb in Simple Gematria Equals: 143
However Dolores does go on to use numerological addition in her video to get her 6, 6, 6 results (which fails with the above-quoted numerals and also with the meaningless numerical results for ‘www’ obtained from the same source) and wonders about coincidence, something always worth considering.
On being told by an audience member that Michel had a deliberately Catholic surname Mrs Cannon countered “He was Jewish but his family had to convert to Catholicism” adding “Nostradamus was never happy about that”. History has it that his great-grandfather converted to Christianity, possibly under duress. Michel’s father and mother were very likely Catholics therefore. Michel was certainly born into Catholicism and in his lifetime had links with some middling hierarchs of the Church and several monasteries as well. It is recorded that in his daily life he dutifully observed all Catholic ceremonies. He was also a strong Monarchist which strict Jews seldom seem to be.

The term Christ is old Greek for the old Judean term Messiah (the Anointed). These well-understood applications are both titular, like High Priest or Commander-in-Chief. Cannon redefines Christ as meaning “humanity”. Perhaps she is confused between Jesus of Nazareth – the very embodiment of pro-human goodwill – and his virtually posthumous title of Christ from which we were eventually given the organised religion of Christianity, the compilers of the New Testament. Those who knew and loved Him during His time on Earth and some time after were the Jesus worshippers among the Judeans who unhappily disrupted synagogue meetings before going underground as divers groups of followers with disparate gospels being preached.
On speaking about Nostredame’s use of antique language she gives the example “Mysie, Lysie, & Pamphylie” seeming to think these names outlandish and requiring her special knowledge. Yet the modern names in daily use are simply “Mycia, Lycia and Pamphylia”, once Hellenized parts of Anatolia now in modern Turkey. She smiles tellingly as she reveals to us that this means “the Middle East”. No it does not and never has done. ‘Close but no cigar’ comes to mind.
Here is my second try at quatrain III 60 (for my first attempt see the Article WATCH OUT WORLD Part 5)
III 60 THE BLACK MADONNA
Par toute Asie grande proscription,
Mesme en Mysie, Lysie, & Pamphylie :
Sang versera par absolution,
D’vn ieune noir remply de felonnie.
Throughout Asia great repressions,
In particular in Mycia, Lycia and Pamphylia:
Blood will pour though remittance of sins,
From a black virgin perfector’s illicit temerity.
Line 1, OF ‘Proscription’ was originally from Roman antiquity and meant condemnation to death or exile without judicial overview, i.e. for political reasons. In general, though, it meant repressive measures being taken.
Line 2, OF ‘Mesme’ could mean importantly or else specifically (without blurred borders or any contiguity) or is the main point being put forward during a discussion or else to be pointing directly to/at.
OF ‘Mysie, Lysie, & Pamphylie’ all three are parts of Anatolia, which on a map is down from the Black Sea and up from Cyprus, with Lycia and Pamphylia being close one to the other by the Mediterranean coast.
Pamphylia has a loose connection with the Pentecost – the Bible records that there were Pamphylians in Jerusalem at the time of the granting to Peter of a sacramental ministry to be taken up by the Church as the remittance of sins to the penitent.
Line 3, OF ‘versera’ is from ‘verser’, to pour.
Line 4, OF ‘remplir’, to fill up, make full, perfect is related to OF ‘implere’, complete. OF ‘remply/rempli’ is the adjective/adverb allowing something like dare perfect.
OF ‘ieune noir’ may well be the Black Madonna.
Despite denigration of that goddess by the Church (she has pagan roots with sacred meteorite associations and even attracts Sufi’s devotion) in the Cathedral at Chartres, a seat of Marian reverence that houses the Sancta Camisia, may be found an impressive Black Madonna statue and there may be a hundred or more other statues like this in the South of France alone which also hosts the Black Madonna festival, a popular annual pilgrimage for international gypsies.
Islam features a black stone of worship at Mecca but does not personify it as female.
In Anatolia, a matriarchal agrarian society in olden times, temples were built around fallen meteors and goddess worship has existed for thousands of years. (Similarly in Sumeria – Astarte, Artemis, Cybele, Innana, Ishtar are all associated with the planet Venus.)
The black stone goddess is attributed with a destructive-cum-transformative power, rather like Kali the well-known Hindu goddess. Death and renewal is, of course, associated with the Resurrection and seems to reflect the daily setting and rising of the Sun.
The parallel acceptance-rejection by the Church of the pre-Christian blackstone madonna demonstrates its ability to absorb yet deny competing faiths. The event described by the quatrain III 60 seems remote and is unrecorded as yet but is simple to understand: the Black Madonna has gained the upper hand in Asia Minor as the fulfiller of humanity’s demands and wishes and the mighty Church or a smilar power has pushed her down again by brutality and the spilt blood of her faith-filled ones, the rival Madonna’s faithful.
