“is death sickness or is it a perfectly natural healthy event like birth? Of course it is.”


Alan Watts, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, The Nature Of Reality and Nostradamus: Flee, Flee Geneva.

In a recent blog comment posted here at Alan Gillis’ excellent blog “The Science of Conundrums” I analysed a Notradamus Quatrain potentially relating to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN near Geneva in Switzerland, thus:

“To call Raypoz the PositiveRay is a sound derivation, though it wouldn’t have been understood back then, with the only rays being ‘rayons de soleil’ or sun rays, sunlight.

What is the Opposite of Raypos? A negative ray.”

This analysis I believe to be incorrect based on an incorrect analysis of the French.

“Le contre Raypoz exteriminera tous”

“The opposing positive ray will exterminate all.”

Is a better translation. More importantly it leads us to a simpler conclusion than needing to invent a negative ray from somewhere:

Nostradamus is merely pointing out that the opposing positive rays colliding in the LHC will exterminate all in Geneva.

Why? The LHC creates “contained” nuclear explosions by colliding two positively charged rays of particles. The explosions are contained in huge magnetic fields. The field strength needed for these magnets is calculated using current theoretical physics.

The problem is that the LHC experiment is testing the boundaries of the same theoretical physics that was used to calculate the magnetic field strength needed to contain these explosions.

They have probably got it wrong.

The Nostradamus Quatrain:

Migrés, migrés de Geneue trestous,
Saturne d’or en fer se changera,
Le contre Raypoz exteriminera tous,
Auvant l’aruent le ciel signes fera.

The usual translation:

Leave, leave Geneva every last one of you,
Saturn will be converted from gold to iron,
Raypoz will exterminate all who oppose him,(?)
Before the coming the sky will show signs.

My translation is that the third line is incorrect and should read thus:

Leave, leave Geneva every last one of you,
Saturn will be converted from gold to iron,
The opposing positive rays will exterminate all
Before the coming the sky will show signs.

This morning, co-incidentally, I am re-reading a wonderful lecture by Alan Watts called “The Nature Of Consciousness”. There is a lovely passage where he is culminating his description of the “ceramic” model of the universe and it’s flaws. This is the model (slightly altered by the removal of “God” from the picture) is the one the scientists at CERN are exploring:

But when you want to apply that image to the universe itself, to the very nature of life, it has limitations. For one thing, the idea of a difference between matter and spirit. This idea doesn’t work anymore. Long, long ago, physicists stopped asking the question ‘What is matter?’ They began that way. They wanted to know, what is the fundamental substance of the world? And the more they asked that question, the more they realized the couldn’t answer it, because if you’re going to say what matter is, you’ve got to describe it in terms of behavior, that is to say in terms of form, in terms of pattern. You tell what it does, you describe the smallest shapes of it which you can see. Do you see what happens? You look, say, at a piece of stone, and you want to say, ‘Well, what is this piece of stone made of?’ You take your microscope and you look at it, and instead of just this block of stuff, you see ever so many tinier shapes. Little crystals. So you say, ‘Fine, so far so good. Now what are these crystals made of?’ And you take a more powerful instrument, and you find that they’re made of molocules, and then you take a still more powerful instrument to find out what the molocules are made of, and you begin to describe atoms, electrons, protons, mesons, all sorts of sub-nuclear particles. But you never, never arrive at the basic stuff. Because there isn’t any.

I think Watts is right here. there is no basic “Stuff”, just energy manifesting in different patterns that appear to be stuff. This is a very Buddhist interpretation of reality. Reality is there – it’s just not the reality we “think” of it as. The Scientists at CERN are looking for “Stuff”.

This is why I say the scientists at CERN have probably got it wrong and are messing in ways that they do not comprehend with matters/energies they do not comprehend. The fact that they do not comprehend them is of course proved by the fact that they are conducting “experiments”. Also that they spent $X billion on a machine that broke after two days and will take six months to fix is worrying. Let’s hope it keeps having these little failures and setbacks for a long time to come. Hopefully some bright spark somewhere will do the mathematics that proves the danger of their efforts before they ever switch it on fully.
