On Nostradamus and the Paths of Wisdom – Part II
This article summarizes the thematic contents of the second sixteen of the thirty-two Nostradamus prophecies identified in medieval mystic circles as the Paths of Wisdom. Their original source was a secretly guarded book known as the Book of Light.
This article continues the thematic summary of the thirty-two Paths of Wisdom. In On Nostradamus and the Paths of Wisdom – Part I, it was postulated that Nostradamus extracted these thirty-two prophecies from the Book of Light, a book secretly guarded by medieval mystics for many centuries. Part I covered Paths one through sixteen and this article covers the remaining sixteen. Once again the Nostradamus numbers are provided for cross-reference to the underlying prophecies.
Path of Wisdom #17 [VI-95] The secret history of Edward M. Kennedy and Vietnam, 1969. The Prophet insinuates that U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy was innocent in regards to the tragedy of Chappaquiddick in 1969. He also returns to the life of John F. Kennedy and implies that the president was assassinated because of his opposition to the war in Vietnam.
Path of Wisdom #18 [VI-100] The barbarians and the final episode of Henry II of France, 1559. The Prophet provides a brief introduction to his prophetic work. This stanza in the original Latin, however, is not a Path. Surviving only in fragments is an unpublished Path of Wisdom wherein the Prophet refers to the cruel death of King Henry II of France in 1559.
Path of Wisdom #19 [VIII-13] The secret history of the murder of emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, 1821. The Prophet refers to the collapse of the army of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1813 and to his death on the island St. Helena in 1821, adding that Napoleon was murdered by poison placed in a drink.

The Prophet provides more information on the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II (May, 1981), then refers to the marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer in London (June, 1981) and to the assassination attempt against president Ronald Wilson Reagan.(March, 1981).

He also mentions the armaments industry and implies that King, like JFK, was murdered because of his opposition to the Vietnam War.
Path of Wisdom #29 [X-81] The secret history of the great treasure of the Andes. The Prophet refers to a treasure that the Andeans hid inside a temple, implying that this treasure was a gift that he had given to the Andeans.
Path of Wisdom #30 [X-86] The prophecy of the Persian Gulf War, 1991. The Prophet refers to the Persian Gulf War of 1991 and the great coalition of forces led by the United States and Great Britain. He also points to the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein as the specific target of that war.
Path of Wisdom #31 [X-91] The prophecy of the end of the serfdom in Russia, 1861. The Prophet refers to the end of serfdom in Russia (early 1861), and to the beginning of the Civil War in the United States (early 1861) to put an end to slavery in that country. He identifies civil war and slavery as the worst evils ever in human society.
Path of Wisdom #32 [X-100] The prophecy of the great British Empire, 1588-1982. The Prophet refers to the British Empire that covered many parts of the world for more than three centuries. He attributes this empire to England's dominance of the seas and alludes to the use of naval power in the Falkland Islands War.
Nostradamus' book contains eleven additional prophecies that come from the Book of Light, with topics ranging from fish identity to September 11. Ten of these, in five pairs of two, correspond to a second set of Sephirot of Nothingness. The eleventh prophecy evidently belongs to neither the Paths nor the Sephirot and may have been a last-minute replacement for the unpublished Path.
