CHAPTER 01: PROPHECY: A SOLUTION TO THE WORLD’S ANGUISH

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] How can any reasonable man keep his balance when he sees all the values established by past generations dissolving beneath his feet, even the basic moral foundations and social units of religion, nation, community and family? Since the appearance of modern dictatorships, whether fascist, communist, theocratic or too subtle to be clearly labeled but all based on using the audio-visual media to control the minds of the populace, the world has embarked on a period of fluidity and change much more radical than that stimulated by the invention of printing which launched the Renaissance, a period that foreshadowed ours in its social and religious upheavals. We see the general instability increasing as we approach the Aquarian Age, and this will go on until we outgrow our present view of the universe. Every birth is traumatic and bringing forth this new life of humanity will be especially hard. The fatal year marking the beginning of our entry into a new age was certainly 1968 with its worldwide revolt of youth against the establishment....

CHAPTER 02: THE NEAR FUTURE

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] PROPHETS AND SEERS: NOSTRADAMUS AND EDGAR CAYCE Since most readers are probably acquainted with Nostradamus, we will give only a short summary of his life and work, emphasizing the prophecies that have definitely come true. We have used the original text of the famous Centuries as they were published from 1605 to 1611 by Vincent Seve at Troyes, brother-in-law of a son of Nostradamus. This edition is supposed to be one of the most faithful to the original printed in 1555 and 1558 by Mace-Bonhomme at Lyon. Michel de Nostradamus is known throughout the West and an enormous quantity of books have been written about him. His fame was great in his own time and is undiminished today. During his lifetime he enjoyed the favor of the French king, Henry II and the Queen mother Marie de Medicis because of his timely and accurate prophecies about them. In May, 1564, these two personages came to the town of Salon to visit him, showing how the prophet was respected by royalty. But what...

CHAPTER 03: THE FUTURE ARCHEOLOGICAL DISCOVERIES

CHAPTER THREE: THE FUTURE ARCHEOLOGICAL DISCOVERIES [Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] Antediluvian civilizations more advanced technically than our own? This chapter will take up future archeological discoveries revolutionary in scope. According to Cayce they will come to light soon and will prove the existence of Atlantis and the technical know-how of that civilization, in some ways more advanced than ours. These discoveries, revealing the true nature of man and his destiny, will cause a deep change in our belief structure. For these future findings we will abandon the line of inquiry of the Letter to the King that we have followed to its end, and take up the Cayce readings as a basic reference on this subject. Cayce announced the imminence of these discoveries and Nostradamus devoted over a dozen quatrains to these startling finds. One especially, that Nostradamus spends three verses on, must be very important. Cayce speaks in many psychic readings of finding archives of Atlantis in different spots. As usual, these visions also enlighten us as to the contents of these Temples of Records...

CHAPTER 04: APPARITIONS OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND THEIR RELATION TO THE FATE OF ALL MANKIND

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] This chapter, perhaps the most important in terms of scientific research, will prove that Marial apparitions do not occur randomly, but are part of a plan of spiritual education of humanity and appear when the time is ripe. This study will begin with the best known of the apparitions, Fatima in Portugal. The author is not trying to cast doubt on their truth nor to deny their deep spiritual implications, but he will try to view the apparitions with the eye of a modern man without being influenced either by the distorted interpretations of religiosity verging on bigotry or by a skepticism all too simplistic. In this chapter we will rely as much as possible on facts observed by outside witnesses, and will only quote the seers’ statements when it becomes necessary in order to grasp the whole story. The facts observed at Fatima are extraordinary enough in themselves without contradictory theological interpretations. The three children of Fatima did not get the Marial message at one time. During the latter part of...

CHAPTER 05: DETAILED ACCOUNT OF THE PRINCIPAL MARIAL APPARITIONS

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] After the statements in the last chapter, an exact description of the important appearances of the Virgin Mary seems indispensable. The reader can then judge for himself the relationship between these supernatural manifestations and human destiny. During this exposition, the author will make certain comparisons which may shock certain religious beliefs. But again, he is not trying to mock the Marian apparitions, as he has already explained at length. But the observations made in the course of them and related by thousands of witnesses, many of whom are cultured and educated minds, match the statements made by perfectly honest and sensible people describing encounters of the third kind. Quite undeniable parallels, not only proving the existence of superior beings but letting us see the profound reasons for their intervention. The Marial apparitions reported by the visionaries often describe the Virgin Mary as a girl between 12 and 15 years old, of superhuman beauty, expressing piety and goodness at the same time. She is always dressed in a cape or an ample robe...

CHAPTER 06: CYCLOLOGY — THE MATHEMATICS OF HISTORY

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] The knowledge of perfect numbers goes back to the mists of antiquity. It was used in Chaldea and very early Egypt. The definite writings on this subject date from Thales, who lived from 640 to 547 B.C. His pupil Pythagoras (580-500 B.C.), the author of famous theorems, traveled to Egypt where this education was completed by the priests of Ra at Heliopolis and Memphis. These heirs to the greatest sacred mysteries taught him the value of the Sirius cycle. According to this theory, not only celestial phenomena but all terrestrial events repeat themselves in the same order every 1461 years. The man who made the theory famous and gave it all its value was Plato, for he set the true golden number at 25920 years; and this number, as we shall see, contains all the others. These 25920 years correspond to the complete precessional cycle which we discussed earlier. [Note: As we have often stated in The Shift of the Ages and other writings, this precession is a slow wobble in the...

CHAPTER 07: SUNSPOTS AND POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC CRISES

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] By observing sunspots, we can make several deductions both physical and paraphysical. First of all, it is a cyclic phenomenon. Sunspot activity peaks every 11 years, on the average, with the calmest periods at an interval of 5 years, 6 months. During this solar activity, Aurourae Polaris (Aurora Borealis) and magnetic storms are produced, with serious interference in radio transmission, especially in the short-wave, high frequency bands. Radar apparatus is completely jammed by fogging during sunspots. Recent statistics also report an enormous increase in myocardial infarction during these periods. But in addition to their measurable physical effects, sunspots have a definite influence on human behavior. The Russian scientist Orloff demonstrated it in his theory connecting revolutions and sunspots, which incidentally got him sent to prison and his works banned. Although the average length of the sunspot cycle is 11 years, the individual periods vary a lot. As you can see on the graph (Fig. 2), the peaks do not conform exactly to the rule, and there are some that fall quite wide...

CHAPTER 08: THE NEW TRANS-PLUTONIAN PLANET

[Note: This chapter, and all others in this book, are excerpted from The End of Our Century by Francois Masson, written in 1979-80. It was transcribed from French into English by David Michael Steinberg in 1981 and a publisher was never found. It was finally edited, updated and published on the Internet by David Wilcock in 2001.] “American scientists state that they have deduced from their calculations the existence of a trans-Plutonian planet, which they expect to photograph around 1980, when it leaves a part of the sky containing several very bright stars.” That announcement appeared in the newspapers around 1972 and amounts to the baptism of a new planet. Now, all the new discoveries of planets invisible to the naked eye were accompanied by radical new changes in human development and always in relation to the mythological meaning of the gods after whom the planets were named. Uranus was the first telescopic planet to be discovered — by Herschel in 1781 — and that discovery coincided with profound political and scientific revolutions affecting all mankind. Neptune was discovered by LeVerrier in 1846, two years before the great proletarian revolution of 1848, which ripened underground and shook all Europe when it burst forth. Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. The following year the American Lawrence invented the cyclotron, virtually giving birth to the Atomic Age. This invention...
