"A few at their rank will find they want to be" : message from an immediate future !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

This article is an English translation of our French article published one year ago, on August 13th 2011 :
" 'Peu trouveront qu'à son rang veuille estre' : message d'un futur immédiat ! "
It is more valid than ever as an adaptation.

" 'Before long time everything will be ranged,
We hope a century really awkward.
The state of masks and the lonely ones well changed,
 Few will find at their rank they want to be !'
 This fateful quatrain of Nostradamus (1503 - 1566), seems to connect logically to the previous one quoting : 'For him, without faith and lawless people will die" (II, 9).
In any case, it is applying perfectly to the irresistible "reset" of this deeply perturbating and uncertain beginning of XXIst century.
It is rather clear to understand :  
"Before a long time everything will be arranged : we must expect an awkward century. The positions of the masked ones (members of secret societies, brotherhoods, etc.), and those of the apparently isolated ones at the opposite, will change swiftly and imperceptibly, just by swinging the mask. And a few personalities will want to stay at their rank - understated, to assume high responsabilities, too much overwhelming and stifling.
On this point, Nostradamus doesn't aim at the outside and frequently exaggerated opinion we have about those personalities, but on the contrary the inner way they will suddenly feel themselves the inanity and impotence of their impossible fiddle.

The states have from too long abdicated their power in front of Neo-Liberalism. What this current wishes fundamentaly is no less than the Nation-State stretching, to make it ridiculous if possible. The "free forces of the Market" (which are worth 600 trillion dollars, so around 24 times the conjugated GDPs of the USA, China and Japan), essentially consider the law of the strongest one, like the states they ape by mimicry : some are even specialists of the double language by dissimulating themselves - skillfully or not -, behind the "iron mask" of fundamental rights.
Except in that case, it's not only about individuals the State would usually declares itself impotent to protect with white lies (which end to come true by repetition). States have become themselves economically so easy and fragile targets. Often dismissive when they should protect public economic order, those unhappy entities are going to rack and ruin : by dint of having a vanishing action often nilly, those "outside forces" which are not blind find them totally useless now on and make fun of them. And it seems, they decided to darken their bad will, by playing a mocking "yoyo" : a small surge of fright here, and a small surge of terrified fear there, according to the stock-exchange volatility !
Besides, States consider themselves as suddenly embedded and caught in their own trap and failure, because of the frightening Debt crisis. As a matter of fact, they have become always consenting puppets, without opposing this perverse game.
All their efforts are leading them to please their new capricious and invisible masters, even if they are sacrificing blindly the real interests of the people. And yet they have never been elected for that, what causes a mistrust and a faintness growing and perceptible.
Only America seems to get one's back up against the unfairness of a double A attributed on last August 5th by the "assessing-notating" firm Standart and Poor's, instead of the usual AAA : a gross mistake of 2 trillion dollars amongst other problems, would have curiously melted in the projections of the analysts-accountants, provoking an immediate inquiry from SEC (Security and Exchange Commission). If it was proved erroneous, it would be right the USA to be reattributed quickly their triple A. That would be a first great victory on the Debt, before the great clearing.
But the USA are really an astonishing country, since the billionaire businessman Warren Buffett (born in 1930), and an important number of very rich people are asking to pay more tax to save their nation and the American dream.

It will come to France, even if it will be more timid by comparison with America. It is true that in this world where nobody understands anything anymore, it's not abnormal that certain politicians themselves look so lost. But in that case, they shouldn't continue persuading people of the opposite. They play tiredly on big words, ensuring they master everything when nothing is under control. Anyway, everybody realize it, as facts are coming quickly to deny their wrong speeches : we are now on in "Dreamland", like the one Aborigenes are talking about.
The "Coué" method doesn't work in economics, where facts are stubborn.
Even our humorists who are mocking at our politicians, are not anymore able to make us laugh :
they often seem too serious by comparison with their models.
In France, the famous "Henri the Second" to be (with the meaning of "saviour" or "helpful"), dear to Nostradamus may exist as a "tumult apeaser", but nobody knows who he could be exactly. And if he doesn't exist, or takes his time by distrust towards the human ingratitude, people then have to be patient and show abnegation by the meantime.
The World Bank just recently estimated the financial crisis of 2011 is of a completely different type from the one of 2008. And its analysis appears quite correct to us. Nothing known before is really applying to what's happening.
We are not entering a contra-cyclic era, but an "a-cyclic" one, out of time in a way. Everything looks so absurd and at the same time so actual.
One wanted to get free at all costs of the classic logic who has been successful in doing so.
We are living in the time of the marriage of carp and rabbit, the one of upside-down, and cock-and-bull. Cartesianism is dying, and the world it was supporting is disappearing very fastly in front of our amazed eyes. In this new opening world, only would count one-liners with their weight and magic. And except the image, the rest - it means tangible reality-, would be without importance apparently. Even !

Our universe is more and more the one of the Scottish philosopher David Hume (1711 - 1776), with the disappearing of causality, seen as a simple probability amongst others. It was inaugurated by the now defeated rationalists, lost in their downfall.
His "Enquiries concerning human understanding", published in 1748, are taking back all their valorous vigour.

Only the most resourceful and creative persons by now, will make their room in this new era, a bit like the rabbit or the hatter of "Alice in Wonderland" (1865). His British author, Lewis Caroll (1832-1898), was in reality a mathematician, and not only a storyteller. He would have adored our new epoch : its absence of coherence would have delighted him !

By willing to play stupid games, the protagonists of this change have created something which is escaping them completely : hence, their own life is really risking to go on absurdly like for anybody else. Their wish of uncontrolled and uncontrollable aberrations could be widely and suddenly fulfilled nilly-willy, by leaving them seriously lost and embarrassed. And the column the most appreciated of magazines or newspapers would be untitled "higgledy-piggledy", or better "the hare of March heading" !

Space News VII : before and after Earthian "Curiosity" on Mars !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

It is funny to observe what's happening on Mars, South of Elysium Mons, in the Gale Crater which is 155 km wide, since August, 6th 2012.
The great and successful landing - at last -, of a human robotic and remote mission named "Curiosity" is a victory for American and European science (as this project is a Western cooperation).
However, the fact is the terraformation of Mars has been delayed a lot, thirty years at least. And no human being would be able to be overthere before 2030 (or around 2035).
So the "Alternative 3" and the "Adam and Eve project" are at a stalemate...and even failure in case of a real Godly happening at the end of this year. But as an instrument of power with frequent fanaticism, religion is not always faithful to God on Earth. The opposite coming from any kind of blind atheist fanaticism is not better either. Supposed "God word" or ideologies unthroning him, have been for a long time easy excuses for mad excess in human beings.

And potentially clever entities of the Cosmos would be quite right to be careful and stay very distant, or appear only through the shadow of doubt.
The fact is Earthian science - and not totally for financial reasons -, has been overcome by the Red Planet and its mysteries, so inexorably logical sometimes.
There is actually already an atmosphere on Mars, but it's harmful for human beings without its spinning disks accelerating the rotation of the planet. Is this deliberate, as human beings might be considered as dangerous creatures for peace and harmony in the galaxy ? Nobody knows. Of course, with such a point of view, one could understand the very reason of a lack of official contact from outside.
Nevertheless, the topic is now "life survival", and not only study.

The main point of Curiosity's landing was first to be able to achieve it, 248 million kilometers away. So it is clearly a big success.
The official aim of this very costly mission is to observe possible basic life on Mars (like bacterias), or even "bricks of life", but not really developped one. That could be why it was sent in a desolated area, American "Dry Falls" type.
It implies automatically an hidden demonstration whichever the results could be : once for all, human beings are the superior creatures of our galaxy, with none above !
So Cydonia site has been discarted for the launching, of course. Doing that would have provoked an unavoidable failure for the demonstration, because of those annoying pyramids, a Sphinx (Alalu) far older than the Gizah one, and a crater without its two spinning disks. There is even the strange and big five-sided pyramid D. M. (Di Pietro and Molenaar, after the names of the discoverers). So there is no way the Italian School of "underground life survival" in octohedral complexes (reversed pyramids below straight ones), would be discussed since the aftermath of the genial Giovanni Schiapparelli (1835 - 1910). His so-called "optical illusions" about Martian canals are just renewed breaking news !

So let's concentrate on geology and Martian bacterias - if Curiosity can catch some . Of course, another possibility would have been, on the opposite, to bring and spread Earthian bacterias in order to start producing oxygen on this planet, preparing it for 2030 or after.
That would be the day if Curiosity was meeting a pidgeon or most likely a funny thunderbird !
Say the mission had been launched in the North Pole, it could have studied why water is leaking still there, when Earthian knowledge asserts it shouldn't in a vaporous atmosphere. But we are not really interested in this mystery on Earth, as Mars is just a way to explain the arising risks of our planet, in fact.
We just expect from it to show signs of desolation, like the "Dry Falls" area on Earth (State of Washington, USA), which is not so desertic after all.
We avoided also narrowly the "taïga" area near the North Pole, to prevent misinterprintations from ordinary Earthians. Just imagine, we find a hut !
No, it's really better to escape from any possible speculation. And for that, there is nothing better than inert stones and orange sand. But perhaps can we see the world in a grain of sand ?

As a matter of fact, for America the Martian Gale Crater is extremely interesting to study : we can compare it to the Caldera of La Garita (State of Wahington, USA), and the mystery of its formation after the tremendous antediluvian cataclysm which affected the West of America 28 million years ago, or a bit less.
La Garita Caldera is presently the biggest one existing on Earth.
The same spectacular phenomenon lead also to the creation of the great Canyon of Colorado, connected to the last secrets of Columbia River and the previous glaciary Missulah Lake, with its waterly cataclysmic vortex (Glaciary area).
Mars which geology looks very much like the one of West America, could explain in that way what is going to happen to Earth. The discovery of similar little balls of hematite on Mars in 2004, was the proof Mars has been full of water on its surface also. Is the destiny of  Mars, with its previous rivers and canals, the near future of Earth ?  That's the real question for mankind.

It is strange to consider how human beings are not really adaptating to their environment in the proximity of nearby planets. Just take a pidgeon in London : this bird is able to use the tube to go to another garden to meet its mate, by playingly imitating human beings, as it has been observed with curiosity. But what about human beings with their costly and still limited rockets ? In the dark night of black scorpios, virtuality can become real. And the human race to maintain ignorance at an acceptable level, with the development of this new science called "agnothology" - litteraly "science of ignorance" -, makes them safe.
On Earth, we musn't forget the almost overnight civilization of Egypt has taken its roots in King Scorpio's gesture, quickly followed by the mythical King Aha (dynasty O).

We would stress Cairo, capital of present Egypt, means "Mars" in Arabic language ("El Quaher").
On Mars itself, Curiosity robot, as a science lab with full of cameras, will also be able to give very important informations on the Galactical alignment forecasted for December 21st 2012, just by being overthere. As an improvised and advanced relay for the observation of the Space, with its seventeen eyes, it will certainly help to release a big worry or concern for the winter solstice.
So after all, it might be really useful for mankind, especially if people want the Solar Sorath to finally get in touch with them. It's hoped they wouldn't be too frightened if uncovered !

The new thing is India just announced on August 15th, it will send its own probe to study about Mars next year (geology and life). So, it's becoming hot about the Red Planet, when you know Indian history is originating in Mahabharatah. Its antediluvian rockets called "vîmanas" will be in honour again, like the far further Emperor Asoka and his "9 wisemen" worldwide organization (273 BC). It's like backing the inheritage of Lemuria, before the great cataclysm and the following appearing of the Indian subcontinent. So in this unexpected competition, the West may be pushed nilling willing to discover - or uncover - quickly something more thrilling than stones or bacterias about Mars : according to us, anything unusual like a desert plant, a mobile "rose of Jericho" for instance will do, but not the Greys yet !
