Michel de Nostradame, known today as Nostradamus, was born in Provence in 1503. The predictions about the future are less often taken seriously, but when they come from the famous Nostradamus, things seem to change.
Divided into Centuries, the work of Nostradamus is made up of several hundred quatrains (or stanzas of four lines). Metaphors are common there. Check out some of Nostradamus’s prophecies for the year 2022. We warn you right away: some are quite pessimistic.
The quatrains cited below are taken from the original work of Nostradamus, published in 1955:
1. An army of robots will destroys humanity
There are too many people on earth.
Robots with artificial intelligence will evolve to have the intelligence of a mouse, then a rat, then a cat, then a dog and a monkey. They could become dangerous, get out of control and even kill people.
‘’Tears, cries and laments, howls, terror,
Heart inhuman, cruel, black and chilly:
Lake of Geneva the Isles, of Genoa the notables,
Blood to pour out, wheat famine to none mercy.’’
2. Cloning humans will bring chaos to Earth
Cloning humans will be done starting in 2022 and can help improve the genetics of the human race, but also can lead to the extinction of the human race.
By producing multiple clones there is a risk of creating a population of identical individuals. These individuals obtained by cloning could suffer from the same diseases or be susceptible to the same type of pathogens and a single virus could exterminate the population over a large area, even an entire species.
‘’Beneath the holy earth of a soul the faint voice heard,
Human flame seen to shine as divine:
It will cause the earth to be stained with the blood of the monks,
And to destroy the holy temples for the impure ones.’’
3. The Next Pope will be The AntiChrist
One of the more disturbing predictions that have been interpreted from the writings of Nostradamus is the coming of an antichrist. The emergence of the tyrant is described as more evil and destructive than Napoleon or Hitler, the first two antichrists Nostradamus predicted would shatter the earth.
“The Antichrist very soon annihilates the three,
Twenty-seven years the blood of his war will last.
The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
With blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth”
4. A New Wave of Plaque is Coming – a war between humans and vampires
A family (three brothers) of extremely powerful and power-hungry vampires, who want to rule the world, will spread a disease that will kill many people. Nostradamus makes many references to blood, war and famine in the same sentence, a destructive virus will wipe out a third of the nation.
Those at ease will suddenly be cast down,
the world put into trouble by three brothers;
their enemies will seize the marine city,
hunger, fire, blood, plague, all evils doubled.
From the vain enterprise honor and undeserved complaint,
Boats tossed about among the Latins, cold, hunger, waves
Not far from the Tiber the land stained with blood,
And diverse plagues will be upon mankind.
5. London bombings
More bombs will be detonated in central London, and the attacks will be claimed by the Islamic State Terrorist Organization.
No just blood they shall spill in London town:
Anathemas singe six times twenty three.
The ancient dame from high shall tumble down.
Of that same sect shall many murdered be.
6. The beginning of World War 3
Throughout his centuries of quatrains, Nostradamus constantly talks about the probability of a Third World War.
It feels as though the world has been on the brink of chemical warfare since 9/11, and as the mountain of evidence suggests, the attack was orchestrated by the powerful elite of Europe and the United States. 22 years on the situation is looking painstakingly more threatening.
The following quatrain bodes that World War III may be closer than we think. Its arrival is heralded after the fall of the Republican Party in the United States.
One year before the Italian conflict,
Germans, Gauls, Spaniards for the fort:
The republican schoolhouse will fall,
There, except for a few, they will be choked dead.
(Century 2, Quatrain 38.)
The Republican schoolhouse is the U.S. government, which is at its lowest popularity ever in history at the time of writing.
7. ALIENS WILL INVADE EARTH IN 2022 – a new age is coming
Towards Aquitaine by the British Isles
By these themselves great incursions.
Rains, frosts will make the soil uneven,
Port Selyn will make mighty invasions
Aliens are preparing for a major assault on Earth within the next year. Aliens, post houses on the Ground will change our DNA and make us more relaxed, for long and happy life.
8. The death of Kim Jong-Un
In the 14th quatrain of Centuria IV, Nostradamus predicts the disappearance of the North Korean leader:
‘’The sudden death of the first character
aura changed and put another in reign.’’
Kim-Jong Un would therefore be the victim of an unexpected accident. However, his succession is already assured since a member of his family will be in charge of the country.
9. Mankind will be destroyed by the appearance of a black hole that will lead to the reversal of the magnetic poles
The presence of a black hole can be deduced by its interaction with matter and by the emission of electromagnetic radiation.
The proximity of the Earth to this black hole will lead to a destabilization of the magnetic poles.
Due to the decrease in the intensity of the Earth’s magnetic field during the process of reversing the magnetic poles, the shielding effect of the magnetic field decreases, and a greater amount of harmful radiation reaches the Earth’s surface.
In conclusion, Nostradamus was an ambitious astrologer, very concerned with his glory. But also a doctor traumatized by the misfortunes of his time.
Four hundred and fifty-five years after his death, Nostradamus became a planetary icon, instantly recognizable.
