comment on Nostrodamus prediction targeted  7/24 /1999    (dont
have text at hand ;In part  it said that the "King of Terror"
 would fall  ;Aries(MARS) will reign   happily ,before and after
.     What  comes to mind is that terror is very  much a thing
the Usa associates with the other,   the enemy, but not
ourselves.  The very hight of terror  for this 20thC. was the
Cuban Missle Crisis.   The  "King" of this , Kennedy ,his  son
John,  Buried at sea  July 23 by military?;his father ,posibly
killed by their assets. Best remembered for a  military salute
,to the victom thereof. (found text )
               "In the  year 1999 and seven  months , from the
sky  will  come the GREAT KING OF TERROR . He will bring back
to  life the  great king of the Mongols. Before and after ,
 MARS REGNER PAR BONHEUR."(war reigns happily.")
           (text note ,   Angolmois ,not  angoumois  in w. France
, but the anagram of the ....  Mongolois.    Idea  pointing
to what some have said , that George Magazine was considering
running with the story of  the technology "GIFTS"  TO CHINA
 , and soon , a new  Terror shall reign supreme in men's minds
,given the  widespread proliferation and sales of the  same.
 Indeed ,a Missle Defence System is again being considered.
I'll say it  plainly , high treason ,  of the  very highest
posible type , infesting our so-call government.If Kennedy wasn't
being GROOMEDfor the highest office ...as it were  ,the great
Hope of the Left , why the weeks of wall to wall coverage; why
indeed ?                "HE shall bring  back to life..."
;perhaps an exposee ,but really ,that cat is already out of
the  bag ,it's no secret  any more(read: THE YEAR OF THE RAT)
,about these goings on)   (must not forget the terror from the
sky ,of 1999...,called Monica's War ;was admitted recently ,that
we came within hours of a  ground invasion of Serbia. And just
who  is/are the we in this case? ; NATO...?      Indeed,prophecy
aside ,with the great number of tREASONOUSparties involved ,all
trying to  seek cover , IS ANY THINKING AMERICAN SAFE TO SPEAK
THE  TRUTH  IN THESE UNITED STATES?    ------------ ,ARE WE
ONE ,UNDER GOD , OR ONE  UNDER THE U.N.FLAG ?  -------------

(N.YER POEMS:ANTWERP :   "And of imerious and crusted flesh."
    (from earlier in text)        "And fanned their gills with
luminous information ....all's  bright and blank in the captive
phase,"

once more ;imagination spreads wide wings in me." (resurrection)
           "Living light prevails (Shroud Image) against the
encroaching night(Tomb-Guards)   ,THE TENUOUS LIGHT OF MEMORY
SETS IT'S COLD SEAL UPON ALL THAT IS GONE."(WHEELLOCK,J.H)
          "MIND  ,LUXURIANT IN IT'S SHIETH , WEARS THE TIME
  SHINNINGLY."
           The Dagger    :"The dagger  dreams over and over
it's simple  tiger dream .... the metal comes alive ,sensing
itself." (sword centered atop Issa in tomb.)
        (quote from my 1987 notes)=="Issa was at the very  core
of a metalic exto-structure of his oposite(things of violence)
Contratry -wise  this planet has the lighter materials on the
outside.
                (D.C]    "Arlington ,where  all night long ,one
living soldier  marches for the  dead."
                (Idea of Chist ,as  head over all)
            Dead Center  :   "And all  your faces  flared for
a moment  ;you were  not there."
         ";there it is written , ""THUS FAR [AND NO FARTHER"".
THERE .AS AT EDEN'S GATE ....   THE ANGEL  WIYH THR FIREY SWORD."

THE GLORY ,THE HEARTBREAK AT THE HEART OF THINGS." (CHRIST'S
WOUNDS AND SUFFERING)

ACTIONS AND OUR DREAMS , AND THROW THEIR SHADOWS ON OUR MOVIE
SCREENS; they seem to haunt us everywhere we go." (Enscaled
armor burial-via military of Rome.)
           page 176     "Mysterious ,the mazes of those
afternoons ,through which the red leaves sweep."(same-same copper
covering scales)
             "Light ,hardened on the water(mirror) ,where we
were ;a bird sang low ,the moonlight sifted in.....the water
roppled."
     Deathwish   :    "Always too eager for (the) future ,we
pick up  bad habits of expectancy." (2nd  coming is  here already
, in a Turin Bank-vault,due to arsin attempts )
                 "Grass ,that only just   escapes reflecting
them ,as the millpond would."         "..,following the red
sun over the  next hill ,the grass is  white. "(The Holy Shroud's
fabric itself ;author perceaves  another, darker , redish
covering )
               page 188     "The mouldering  atoms of the dark
....blaze into morning air ; the birdlike stars droop down and
die."          "The sparrow chips hot sparks  from flinty tongue
,and all the sky showers with electric  larks."(was resurrection
, in part energized by a great earthquake;ie-copper coverings
atop fabric,aloes and body)
           (self-outline and image,via a very  painful process)
  "How your  bad dreams posess and endow me !"
                page 191     "Love is  a shadow ....LISTEN;THESE
ARE IT'S HOOVES , IT HAS GONE OFF."
              "SCORCHED  TO THE ROOT, my red filiments burn
and stand .....a hand (made) of  wires."
                       "The voice of nothing ,THAT  was  your
madness."   (idea that any  "THING" that is though of as God
or God-like , manifestly , is not!)
             "What  is this face ,so murderous in it's strangle
of branches." (coverings...Demonic Armors)
           Going a long way to explaining the firey self-image
is the raw-wounds of Jesus'  back and feet    "Everything he
had touched , an exposed nerve,"   (GREAT PAIN MAY WELL EXPLAIN
MANY  EYE-WITNESS REPORTS OF HIS UNUSUAL POST REVIVAL
ACTIONS;indeed ,he was flesh and blood ,Godlike or not)
                      page 193     "Sunlight and time dripped
out of my eyes .I saw you suddenly in your full nature .....your
face ,a fan opened  to prove every  line."
              p.198      "And color comes across the tight eye's
darkness  though the source of light  has gone."
           (idea that imagry  may have been from without ,like
in some Monster-movie)
                page 197     "That airy joy  that postured woe
,like the  black -magician's spell."  (indeed,Terror Armor is
designed to scare the enemy to panic, at the very  least)
                ENNUI       "The only ghost on earth ,with wings
unspread."
             p.196      The Enigma Variations    "[...or those
kept but  marred by envy or turned self-hate, and Father's
upturned face....   the moon  bandaging  his head."(reflective
coverings)
           "And I would be a grave ,walked on  by stones   ,TO
KEEP A MOULDERING  FAITH ,"   (shroud mis-dated ,partly  due
to  breakdown of  fabric surfaces?; image itself ,as it were
of a man  in burial ,which was  violated by government)
              "Time's other side ,shown as a  flipped  coin
,gleams."
        (another  shift in text , starting  on previous line
/ poems starting with  p)
     Porous   :   "And ,at the  bank door ,and on the wings
of chance ,the money floats out ,lighterthan a dream ,through
the heavy walls."
            Idea; what if  the Holy Shroud  can be compared
to a tear-off Poloroid photo of today ;Jerusalem ,tomb , and
coverings the  paper backing and camera ; now ,1999,many cameras
are completely throw-away devices ,a bit of portable darkness.
 ;shortly  after 1st photo of  30ad ,Jerusalem itself  was nearly
totally trashed.  Many  primitive  peoples see photography as
a sort of thieft , a thieft of  karma  and soul.
   page 565   "Close my eyes before a mirror (they)  are merely
deeper shadows behind the door ,where all is dark."
 The Quest      "Immeasurably alive and  good ,though bare as
rifted  paradise." (Jerico ,one of  the oldest cities ; sits
upon a quake -fault area , The  Jordan Valley .

chain of my breath."
   ( Shroud analisis)      "You can peer down and down ,or dredge
the river bottom,yet never  ,never  (will you) catch me."

   page 614      "As if another man appeared out of the depths
of my being ,and I stood outside myself  beyond  becoming and
perishing ,  A SOMETHING ,WHOLLY OTHER."
         (of a mirror's defects)     "The  solemn mirror's
mottled , mocking  "O"   ,like some  black lake (which) absorbs
all things  in silence."
                "The shallow -rooted mind is overthrown , when
we are near the evening of the world."        "Squirrels ,beware
,beware ....,fixed ideas are  coming  to hunt you down."
             Sequel      "Who can be both moth and flame ?
.... ,the weak moth ,blundering by ."   "Whom do we love?; I
thought I knew the truth."
          Shadowgraphs         "Image comes down to live  as
fact and turns in the same motion ,and is memory."
           The Shudder         "The  foot of death has printed
on my  chest ,it's sigmiture  ,and I am rattled
free."(resurrection/quaking thereof)
             (same idea ,leaving behind a bit of self)   "Free
of ....the hard outlines of idenity."
            page 641        "And who represents on forums  poetry
and  argues to  protect  the libelled muse."
            Skimmers       "So,  he flings his memories ,again
and again  ,never  disbelieved; his tales soar  and are  caught."
               "When such a  one  bears you after your  death
,into rings of battling  light."

,flickering on his brow."

at the shades."

in 1/2 ,it quickened  and was gone."

floors,1000 windows ,and 1000 doors."
             (35th page of notes)
           page 659     "Nursed my bloodless wound ,until the
squares were silent ,where I could make my tunes sinular and
violent."
             "Man's so wise , he is grown foolish ,some of his
schemes are downright ghoulish(Genoside ,deforestation, fine
net straining of  all life  from the seas)
          ....ghoulish ,he owns a bomb that will end creation
....IS ALARMINGLY SUISIDAL."   (so they  said of Christ's final
trip to  Jerusalem)     "THEY SHALL KILL THEE!! "
          ">>>Flat,black hair ,their faces ,copper in the light."
          Sparrows,among dry  leaves  :    ":Peck the sharp
gravel ,to good digestion and love's obscure and insatiable
apitite."
        "So heavily breathing ,one might have supposed this
cage his destination."
           Page 670     "A dance is nothing (except) the pain
in the world  ,which we,like a mirror ,contain."
       p.673      "Squaring the  circle"       (literally what
was  done in many cases to create coin-scale armors ; heat was
applied ,hammer and tonges used , holes punched ;differing
from my back-ground in  "coin-jewelry"  in that I used a  drill-
press.)

A Star      :     I sense thick -light  swirl in the windows.
..... opens it's willows to the morning air ....where all her
fleece echoes and  burns to nothing."
       "Walk bright as air ,she drifts in peace ,too rich in
light for darkness to make way bryond her  screens."

(ie,cities) ,they take our years away and  from our deaths ,they
rise  immortal --in the life we lose."

, a slither of mirrors...., of some overnight disaster ,mixed
with planets ,electrical storms and darkness."
       page 687   :    "Vain ,dizzy ,striving:rude oblivion....
are close to every scuttling star."
               "Crouch in the shrouds then;safety is only a
land hypothesis."
             "Into the  uncertain air ,on painful  wings."
          "They are transparent at first ;then ,blue ,with copper
wings .They  glitter on the foreheads of men ."     "Sick  with
your heat ,let me be  feverish and  frowning." (another  somewhat
revelation of the heavy  covering of Jesus' burial)   "I undress
under the infinate  bulk." (nude self-image)
          The Sun Witch    :    " I shiver at the miricle ;
...   burn me in the same embrace." (scorch-image)

sunflowers  gaze "    "Tints of circle brocade ,an onyx beatle

doves ,like  fingered auger ,brooding in thatch ,suspected time."

let their  labors  blind us . Each  helped to give an age it's
tone."              page 713        "In this last place of light
(Shroud self-image)  ...yet beats his wings,against the wide
abyss ,THE GREY  WASTE NOTHINGNESS OF THINGS."
              "Was a lightning-struck  dead image of (....),who
,in a  mirror  , (who) was more  like ...(....)   than  (.......)
 himself?"
           page 720        "Out there , past the mirror of the
Bosporus .....reflecting us into immobility?" (negetive effect
of all  vanity and  idilitry)
            (As in a criminal case ,ie, "To  crack  it open")
   "You've cracked that  so called  mirror of the soul."
       Page 40 of Notes  /    p.726   "The  mask begins to melt."
 (destortions of coverings  can be approximated and  subtracted)
               Green Windows    "...Wet gargoyles ,covered with
birds; their skins shine in the  sun."
             (enscaled selfimagry via coinage of Roman-eagles.)
           page 730     "The soft noon of your face ,glances
over my stare ,the casual sun  falls down."
          "Around our tent ,the old  simplicities;sloth sleepily
as Lethe ,trying to get in ;WE'LL  WAKE BLANK-BRAINED AS WATER
IN THE  MORNING."
            The Umbinding  :    "Unknown ,real images that burn
my senses and mind  more fiercely than  human events."
        (idea that Jesus was  left bound in he tomb,in the
dark,covered by unknown and doubtlesss ,smelly coverings)
               ((Thoughts ,unrelated to text of Poems:   That
the Shroud of Turin imagry might  well have been a result of
a  "Scan -line" as  in an MRI....,not really a single  flash
, but a travelling  line of energy   ; or   perhaps not!
      I've seen a vidio of  some  small  something creating
crop=circles at a very  high rate of speed; a drone-like  robotic
device putting out  a great amount of energy,heating and molding
varied crops to  someone's whim.   I've seen a few  "angelic-
like" light outbursts first hand and they   oft  were like a
singularity ,and of  no  dimension at all ; once , a  floating
orb   ,at head's  level.   It is widely agreed that the  imagry
of the Holy Shroud is from an energy outburst , crating a
scorched fiber result ;central in  the questions is  was it
a result of internal function or  external agency .  I  say
again , it well  may be that  Yeshua  had a day and a half
out =of - body  experiece ,mimicing real death;at the end of
which God the Father  directed him back to  his own still
body...,covered up as it was.  The return itself ,in part,in
our time and space , passed through the  mind and  nervious
system itself , possibly trigering the  flash image  we are
left  with  today.  I have one been shocked out of  my "self"
 by way of a chemical abuse ; and very well remember the crashing
return to  my own lifeless  flesh (This is covered in  text
of  NO SCHISM)     I have been reading a  modern review of
Tibetian Beliefs(The  Tibetian Book of Living and Dying)  by
Sogyal Rinpoche; in the text , much  of interest is covered
that I will review later ,;one topic of specific imterest ,
that  of  many  men and women returning  from a seeming death-
state to inform and  warn the  living of  the "bardo-states"
awaiting  most all of us. As for the violence associated with
the resurrection , quakes are oft seen  as  forcasters of  the
passing on of a "Great Man ."    As I have speculated , the
violence of the resurrection  may  well mirror the torment and
pain involved ;a cratered  back ,pierced feet ,wrists,and the
uncalled for 2nd burial, by the Military ;all may well have
acted as a barrier that ,through force of will and greater
violence , was overcome,and   thus....the  physical   remnant
and  witnesses to these forces ,a partually   burned and
slightly scorched  cloth.          -------------------------

the  light  ,I took a book ,that I might  gaze upon another's
