At about the time I was writing yesterday’s blog post there was a deadly terrorist attack in France by a Sudanese immigrant, that is probably Islamist inspired. Using Nostradamus-supporters logic, they could be considered linked, as Nostradamus was French, and I was writing about Covid-19 taking the place of terrorism to make my nightmares come true!
Kill the Messenger!
My ‘negatives’ (many of them right-wing!) would probably blame me (kill the messenger!; as many have died in the name of witchery in the past – seriously discussed by me in support of the innocent in XaW Files: Beyond Humanity), but there were no visitors from France to this blog yesterday according to the statistics, so unless the attacker was unconsciously motivated by me (even though I didn’t want it!) it was another circumstantial coincidence.
My book sales don’t seem to suggest I have any influence at all, but my ‘negatives’ seem to think I’m all powerful!!
Nightmares Come True
More generally, and perhaps a possibility, I could link yesterday’s terrorist attack with the current big death count and empty streets from Covid-19 for my partly nightmarish doom-mongering over the last twenty years: which has completely changed my life and mindset.
It’s all interweaved with real events already taking place though, and that have taken place since, but on a smaller scale in the UK, bigger in Europe; since 9/11, which when I watched it after returning from university at about 10/11pm and seeing it on the news seemed like a nightmare materialising; an experience many are supposed to have shared; but I hadn’t had any thought of it happening before – to look at the news on the computer I was using for example.
The Covid-19 death toll has made the IS attacks seem minor in comparison, and I thought would have demoralised their efforts to destroy Europe, but some of their supporters seem to feel the need to kill a few more!
