Nostradamus C6 Q93: Nostradamus notes he sees his own coded
message differently to us.
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015
Nostradamus declares a great deal of self-interest via the last line of
this verse since he is indicating that the process of encoding his
messages shapes his meaning more than the story in the text. His anagrams
in the first line tell us that the text is built from his visions of the
past while the second tells us his code is held within six nine-bit
squares some of which overlap to fit into the available space in a verse.
Anagrams that help in giving meaning to this verse include:
1. Pretemporal aura bit into premonitio (lat: premonition) poem made
2. Provident Durance seer
overprinted direr equator
3. Seems messages result rise by a
4. Oblique foibles ironfisted bourse liquer to
The greedy prelate deceived by ambition,
He comes to
reckon nothing too much for him:
He and his messengers completely
He who cut the wood sees all in reverse.
Prelat auare d'ambition trompe
Rien ne ſera que trop viendra
Ses meſſagiers et luy bien attrape
Tout au rebours voir
qui le bois fendroit.
