Current news about General Electric spins around comparisons with Enron: a reprise of Quatrain IX 53 may be key.
Enron and Neron have been dealt with exhaustively.
As with the ‘Enron Neron’ article this page is an exercise in my patent sourcing of quatrain letters for discovering relevant other words and expressions, a form of anagram building.
Isidore of Seville once wrote, “Letters are signs of things, symbols of words, whose power is so great that without a voice they speak to us the words of the absent; for they introduce words by the eye, not by the ear.”
Again this article utilizes Modern French and not OF. There is no record of Nostradamus the visionary predicting or prophetizing with the aid of Modern French, nevertheless my off-the-cuff results may appeal to anybody with an interest in coincidence and the once apparently great GE:
Le Neron ieune dans les trois cheminees
Fera de paiges vifz pour ardoir getter,
Heureux qui loing sera de telz menees,
Trois de son sang le feront mort guetter.
The letters of the historic ‘Edison general électrique compagnie’ may be found in the First Couplet upon enlisting ‘qui’ from Line 3.
The letters of the concerned criticism ‘illiquide …’ (illiquid as opposed to insolvent) are in the Second Couplet whilst the letters of ‘…titres financiers’, financial securities, appear in the First Couplet (and again in the Second Couplet should we borrow the letter ‘c’ from it) and the letters of ‘atout’, assets, are easy to extract and add-in with this also.
The letters of the analytical device ‘ratio acruel’, the current ratio, are in the First Couplet.
The letters of the accounting term ‘calendrier de capitalisation’ or working capital schedule are available from the First Couplet once we allow a duplication of the letter ‘c’. (Normal in Sixteenth Century anagrams).
The letters of ‘allez gros/allons gros’, General Electric’s motto “Go Big”, appear in each couplet.
The letters of the once factual approbation “second largest company in the world” stated as ‘seconde plus grande entreprise au monde’, are in the First Couplet.
The letters of the GE banner “Rain or shine GE is always better” written as ‘en temps mauvais ou fine GE est toujours mieux’, are available from the quatrain as a whole upon allowing the ‘i’ in ‘ieune’ to be changed for ‘j’, as was customary and appropriate.
So as to balance this perhaps biased news then we should add that the letters of ‘allégations injustifiées’, unjustified allegations, are available from the First Couplet once we allow ‘i’ as interchangeable with ‘j’ (normal for texts of the Sixteenth Century) and a current observation that the GE CEO is supporting the stock price with his own money, ‘Directeur General soutient son marque GE avec son propre argent’ may be extracted from the quatrain as a whole .
