Nostradamus, aka “The Prophet Of Doom”, has some predictions for 2022. And they’re not much better than Baba Vanga’s
New York Post – As the year draws to a close, the news gets darker and darker, at least according to the prophecies of the long-dead diviner father Nostradamus. The plague doctor, astrologer and French seer published his famous and widely cited book “Les ProphÃ©ties” in 1555. Filled with poetic predictions, the book predicts the coming of wars, natural disasters, assassinations, nuclear attacks and revolutions.
Much like the overheated Oracle of Delphi, Nostradamus’ predictions are intentionally vague and open to a myriad of interpretations. For 2021, he hinted at the start of a zombie apocalypse, writing: “Few young: half dead to begin with.” Dark, right? Not if you consider the possibility that Nos was warning us young people that we don’t really live, man, but just exist. More pep talk from Matthew McConaughey than some near-death digging? He also prophesied that 2021 would result in a world-ending asteroid which so far (she hits with abject trepidation) has yet to make an impact.
Chief blogged legend Baba Venga’s predictions for 2022 the other day – and they included an even worse new pandemic, a virtual reality takeover, wars for water scarcity, an asteroid hitting Earth followed the arrival of aliens, famine, earthquakes and tsunamis.
Although the Nostradmus selection sheet does not look like like dismal. It is not pretty.
Let’s move on to the breakdown.
Massive inflation leading to famine
Nostradamus predicted that inflation and famine would reach us in 2K22, writing: “The price of wheat is so high / This man is restless / His fellow man eats in his despair.” A key human truth is that people go hungry and then they get mean – and with US inflation the highest it has been in nearly four decades, Nos’s warning turns out, so far, to absolutely right. No word on whether the rising price of wheat inspired this guy or guy to take a bite of their next one.
Well, talk about an early W for Nostradamus right out of the gates.
We are not even in 2022 yet and we are experiencing unprecedented inflation that experts say does not seem to have an end in sight. Prices are on the rise on everything, most importantly, necessities like food.
If history is any indicator, when “people” are starving, they get agitated and the shit crumbles.
This one doesn’t sound like fun.
Artificial intelligence is starting to take over
Nostradamus wrote: âThe Moon in the middle of the night on the high mountain / The new sage with the lonely brain sees it / Through his disciples invited to be immortal / With eyes to the south. Hands in breasts, bodies on fire.
Although easily confused with BjÃ¶rk’s words, this passage seems to refer to the escalation of artificial intelligence. Cue Elon Musk, Time Magazine’s Personality of the Year and an unequivocal alien in his own right, embarks on robot-making and moves his headquarters south to Austin, Texas. Further evidence that man is destined to be overtaken by immortal machines can be found in the teachings of aesthetic prophet Jared Leto.
It doesn’t take Elon Musk to tell us that artificial intelligence technology has made giant strides in the past two years. For some strange reason in this country, and all over the world, you need a license to fish or hunt, but anyone can just fuck and create self-righteous (and sentient) robots that can (and will end up) ) to replicate and conquer the world. These things develop their own languages ââso that we can’t understand them when communicating with each other, we have Stephen Hawking warning us as loud as his wheelchair speaker speech that AI will be the downfall of the race human, and yet we still hiss in front of the graveyard watching nerds make these things smarter and smarter.
We’re screwed and the fact that “The Prophet of Doom” predicted it a few hundred years ago confirms it. Skynet is coming.
Nuclear explosion triggering climate change and severe drought
The big hits keep coming. Nos’ predictions are tied to astrological events more than calendar years, and for some time doomsday enthusiasts have been waiting for a nuclear explosion that will trigger severe climate change. Based on this joyful passage, “For forty years the rainbow will not be seen / For 40 years it will be seen every day / The dry land will become more parched / And there will be great floods when it is seen, “we can postulate that droughts and floods of biblically punitive proportions are happening. Judging by this summer’s historic drought and painfully parched conditions in Chile, that punishment may already be upon us.
Add to that the recent revelation that China is armed, dangerous and ready to launch a nuclear strike that could presumably cause cataclysmic water shortages. So far, our primary defense against drought seems to rest in the hands and lower regions of moisture awareness advocates Cardi B. and Megan Thee Stallion.
This one doesn’t sound like fun at all.
There are a lot of global players who now have the ability to trigger any of these things by accident or on purpose now. And even more in pursuit of capacity. The death and fallout factor was always the first thought of what would happen, but I never thought it would mess up the climate and throw us into a global drought.
Completely in line with Baba Venga’s prediction that “wars are being fought for water”, this one sounds like the consensus choice for 2022, which sucks.
The cryptocurrency boom
In addition to forecasting inflation, Our nods to the rise of cryptocurrency over the coming year. As the Annual Horoscope translates from the French original: “The swollen copies of gold and silver / Which after the theft were thrown into the lake / Discovering that everything is exhausted and dissipated by debt / All scripts and bonds will be wiped out. “
While Nostradamus’ predictions tend to land closer to the bank than to silver, gold is currently booming and a wave of engineers and Silicon Valley executives are leaving their top positions to unite. their strengths with crypto startups. Coincidence or Prophecy Confirmed? We wait with bitcoin and hold our breath.
Finally a victory. I think?
Decentralized currency has been all the rage for a few years now. If world governments (the G-8) adopt one, or at least officially recognize them, then this prediction could literally take off like a rocket. It seems inevitable, but I’m an idiot.
So this is it.
Rather gloomy outlook for the coming year. But it seems to be the case every year. And when you think about it, humans have lived on shit. Plagues, plague, wars, epidemics, famine. You name it. But we continue to overcome it. Adapt and move forward. We’re like a virus when you really think about it. And I’m a guy by the half-full glass so the way I see it is we’re at our low right now in 2021 and things can only get higher from here on out. So I can’t wait to get the hell out of this year and the next.
