Math Isn’t Random. Nostradamus Cracked: it’s algebra
by Eric Grimsrud
This noted 16th-century historical figure is most directly linked to a series of abstract writings which many claim foretell most major historical events since Nostradamus’s own time, present day and into the future. For disbelievers the assertion is too fantastic to believe – any effort deciphering Nostradamus’s work as a fool’s errand with no place in our modern, rational world. For true believers Nostradamus is considered a prophet – the truth of his prophecies hidden in plain sight, shrouded allegoric poetry for hundreds of years.
There is substantial evidence that Nostradamus did indeed correctly predict virtually every major world event since the original writing 470 years ago, hidden in plain sight within allegoric poetry called “Quatrains”, then obscured with various languages and word puzzles with clarifying symbols. In modern times he arguably predicted events such as World War I and II, the Kennedy Assassination, 9-11 and the Twin Towers, falling of the Berlin Wall and many others. Amongst other seers and prophets throughout history and cultures, Nostradamus has been proven to be the most accurate, standing head-and-shoulders above other prophets and seers. Since the original writing in the 1550’s there have been numerous examples of correct predictions by Nostradamus about major future world events.
Nostradamus (1503 – 1566) was born to a Jewish family at a time when his entire family might otherwise be killed for their Jewish religion. Therefore they were converted Catholic but secretly held on to their faith and teachings. Nostradamus grew-up to become a noted medical doctor in France. During a time that many would consider the “medical dark ages” as doctors were still bleeding their patients, Nostradamus’s medical techniques were considered unorthodox though highly successful in treatment. He spent eight years traveling throughout France, Italy and Spain researching herbal remedies and other medical teachings while working as an apothecary and helping victims of the Black Plague.
During this period it is postulated that Nostradamus came to the teachings of Dr. Theophrastus Bombastus Hohenheim, a Swiss physician, alchemist, and astrologer of the German Renaissance (1493-1541) who predated Nostradamus by roughly 20 years. Hohenheim, who also wrote predictions and prophecies, revived the ancient doctrine of Talismans (derived from the Cabala, secret tradition of the Jewish rabbis) which Hohenheim claimed to be able to use to successfully treat illnesses and accidents. Within secretive religious and occult circles in 16 th -century Europe this medical doctrine was known as the Talismans of the Magi and would be considered contemporary in the arena of occult Jewish healing techniques and practices.
The Talismans were said by Hohenheim to be borrowed from the ancient occult sciences of Chaldea and Egypt; there are certainly other examples of variations of the symbol being used in earlier occult rituals as well. The overall symbology would be considered Satanic heresy in 16 th century France. Evidence of the possession of such knowledge would almost certainly result in being burned at the stake for witchcraft.

Talisman’s of the Magi: Reverse-Side Examples (plus Alphabet of the Magi)
Through his travels and a lifetime study of occult practices (including those derived from the Cabala) Nostradamus had a broad pallet of languages and teaching to draw from in development of his Quatrains. He wrote ten books of 100 prophecies each as well as a few additional writings foretelling future events. As man of science when it intertwined with the occult, Nostradamus was deeply religious and insisted that his ability to foretell the future came directly from God.
He was constantly pursued and persecuted by the Catholic Inquisitions of 16th-century France.
On two separate occasions he was tortured and narrowly escaped death by the Inquisitions under the accusation of witchcraft. For this reason and as stated by Nostradamus himself, his Quatrains were encoded in an intentionally obscure manner as to avoid further attention of the Church. While a large number of these quatrains have been correctly interpreted by allegorically over time, the specific encoding method has remained a mystery.
The Rise of Mabus
Of Nostradamus’s most famous predictions was the rise of three historically linked figures that would successively create enormous death and destruction. Each historical figure would build upon the previous one, ultimately leading to a large-scale cataclysmic event, war, or both. The term that is often given to these three figures is “anti-christs” however it is not clear that Nostradamus himself gave these individuals that colorful, religiously evoking term. These figures were not imbued with super-natural powers. Each would evoke an evangelical following similar to religious figures; as idols they would appear as beacons of light and therefore the faithful would not waver. Each of these three figures would leave enormous death and destruction in their wake. Nostradamus did more than just allude to these future historical figures; he identified them by name. He used these historic figures actual names hidden within word puzzles contained within his Quatrains. Through a correct interpretation of the allegoric poetry combined with a correct deciphering of the applicable word puzzle, one would learn what Nostradamus was specifically predicting. It would only be possible to identify these historical figures over time as they appeared in history.
Three historical figures of similar political leanings who would seduce the multitudes, cause great death and destruction and strife, and who over time would build upon one another. The result of the final political figure, Mabus, was said to create great political divisiveness and ultimately a disruption of the status quo around the world which would ultimately reaching a tipping-point. According to common interpretations of Nostradamus’s work, Mabus’s death causes a chain of events directly leading to greater loss of life than either of the previous two historic figures. While this is commonly interpreted as the beginning of World War Three, potentially a 27-year war with loss of life in the billions, other interpreters have suggested that Nostradamus is predicting a series of natural disasters. Did Nostradamus leave clues to the final outcome embedded in his Quatrains? The two most applicable verses read as such:
“The trumpet shakes with great discord.
An agreement broken: lifting the face to heaven:
the bloody mouth will swim with blood;
the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.”
Century 1, Quatrain 57
“Mabus then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will run.”
Century 2, Quatrain 62
The link between the Talismans of the Magi in use by Nostradamus as a part of his rituals is the direct link to the solution-proof to Mabus. Nostradamus himself displays the puzzle in the first and second solved Quatrains. By sequencing Nostradamus’s first to solved puzzles by order-of-operations it is clear that this is a mathematic puzzle by design. The final solution effectively must fit through all four levels of displayed encryption in sequence. Therefore “mabus” can have only one solution.
This extraction method leads us not only to the 3rd answer but also to the solution-proof for the entire puzzle, two geometric images: one symbol leading directly to Nostradamus’s Jewish background; the other linked to Nostradamus as provided by the occult teachings of Hohenheim.
Algebra and geometry are not random
The encryption of the third puzzle is a mathematical amalgam of the first two. Only with three correct solutions do the resulting geometric representations take shape.
Similar to a computer program, these mathematical relationships are encoded in such a way that two repeating number sets (one from each puzzle) are clearly evident: under the “dial” category “0 1 2” then again under the “flip category “0 1 2”. Expressed geometrically these repeating number sets form two historically significant images clearly intended as a solution-proof from the code-master himself: Nostradamus.
Sequencing for Geometric
This represents the 16th-century version of a timed-delivery system. For example, if one was considering “hister” before Hitler’s rise to power, the puzzle “hister” would be unclear – there would be no context. However once Hitler came to power in Germany there would be historical context to start running the name in order to solve the “hister” word puzzle. Only when the correct person arose on the world stage would there be context to match against and solve the puzzle. Due to the similarity to his actual name it was not difficult to discern that Nostradamus’s “hister” was in fact Hitler. As World War II raged on, both the Axis and Allies realized the predictions surrounding Hitler as “hister” and featured propaganda stating that Nostradamus had predicted the success of each to their own side.
In order to understand the underlying solution to all three puzzles one must only observe the coding method of the first two. Nostradamus used four exampled coding methods in his first two solved puzzles. Each of these methods effectively acts like a level of encryption, the method established in the first two puzzles: Anagrams, Accents, Dials and Flips:
First Puzzle: NAPOLEON
“PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood,
To swim in praise,
the great one to flee to the confluence.
He will refuse entry to the Piuses,
The depraved ones and the Durance will keep them imprisoned.”
Century 8, Quatrain 1
Vintage Nostradamus. He is employing one of his favorite devices: the anagram. “PAU, NAY, LORON” when rearranged becomes NAPAULON ROY, or Napoleon the king, given the Corsican spelling of his name, Napauleone. The text also describes him as a man of ‘fire’, or of war, rather ‘than of the blood’, or of royal lineage. The ‘Piuses’ of the third line are the Popes Pius VI and Pius VII, who were both imprisoned by Napoleon as the fourth line suggests. https://www.crystalinks.com/quatrainsinterpretations.html
Second Puzzle: HITLER
Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in Western Europe (Austria) to very poor parents. He was known for his exceptional oratory skills, and managed to move a nation to action in the years following World War I. Eventually, and under Hitler’s command, the Nazi army invaded France, “Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers”, and it is believed that the “Greater Battlefield” refers to the Allied powers that defeated Hitler. https://curiosmos.com/here-are-5-predictions-that-nostradamus-supposedly-got-right/
It is notable that there appear to be five Quatrains regarding Hitler, four of which refer to him by the name “hister”. As can be seen below, it is a word puzzle which operates mathematically, translating directly to Hitler.
“Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers,
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,
When the child of Germany observes nothing.”
Century 2, Quatrain 24
“…Hister Cries, tears at Malta and the Ligurian sea-coast.”
Century 4, Quatrain 68
“…The republic of Venice will be vexed by Hister.”
Century 5, Quatrain 29“
…Barb, Hister, Malta, and the Empty One does not return.”
Nostradamus’s Almanac 1557
“Who will by his speech seduce a great multitude…”
Century 3, Quatrain 35, attributed to Hitler without use of “hister”
Third Puzzle: DRUMPF
“The Eagle” is of course the United States. “…driven back around the tents…” is an apt description for the pushing-back of American values and norms. “…chased from there from other birds…” meaning the building of evidence.
“When the noise…” refers to the beginning of something. “…cymbals…” is a specific date reference to 2020. “…trumpets and bells…” is a specific reference to the Republicans and Democrats (John Bell who lost to Abraham Lincoln at the effective founding of the Republican Party).
And “…Will restore senses to the senseless lady” is a reference to restoring the senses of Lady Liberty, also a reference to the United States. This may infer that the Congress of 2020 ultimately holds him accountable, or “restoring the senses” may simply reference public opinion. Regardless of the outcome, public opinion has certainly shifted away from Trump.
Impeachment Hearings are currently underway which fulfills this quatrain.
If the 2020 Republicans are “trumpets”, that infers that Trump, also known as Drumpf, is the “false trumpet”: MABUS
“The Eagle driven back around the tents
Will be chased from there by other birds:
When the noise of cymbals, trumpets and bells
Will restore the senses of the senseless lady.”
Century 2, Quatrain 44
“King summoned by trumpet to go out…”
Century 3, Quatrain 50
“The false trumpet concealing madness…”
Century 1, Quatrain 40
“The trumpet shakes with great discord…”
Century 1, Quatrain 57
“Mabus then will soon die…”
Century 2, Quatrain 62
