8.2 The world after the Anti-Christ

The religion called after the seas will overcome,
against the sect of the son Adaluncatif;
the stubborn lamentable sect will fear the two men
wounded by A & A. (X-96)

The world is gradually recovering after the Anti-Christ. When he is gone, most of the organized religions will be in total chaos, particularly Christianity. Peace will be the main philosophical viewpoint everyone will agree upon. Therefore I used the phrase «the religion named after the seas will overcome» referring to the Pacific Ocean. The strange name «Adaluncatif» refers to the Anti-Christ. Those who are familiar with the Kabbala will be able to figure out more concerning the Anti-Christ. «The laminate sect» refers to the Anti-Christ and his followers. He will be defeated twice by «A & A»; first by the fighter, the hero, the main one who will rise up to fight against the Anti-Christ (Ogmios). And then he will also be defeated by the genius, who will come later.

From Arta & the country of Thrace,
people ill by sea, help from the Gauls;
In Provence their perpetual trace
and remnants of their customs and laws. (IX-75)

Europe is trying to recover after the Anti-Christ. «People ill by sea»: firstly, it refers to the fact that the Anti-Christ came over the sea, and so the illness came by sea, so to speak. Secondly, due to the type of warfare the Anti-Christ waged, part of the land and ocean will be poisoned from his weapons, and it will kill off many of the fish and other oceanic life.

His hand finally through the bloody Alus,
he will be unable to protect himself by sea.
Between two rivers he will fear the military hand,
the black and angry one will make him repent of it. (VI-33)

This refers to the downfall of the Anti-Christ’s supreme commander. The battle involved will be an extremely strategic one. «Alus» refers to the misuse of some technology that has not yet been developed. The commander will make a major failure of judgment on the field so the bulk of his forces are captured or killed. «The black and angry one» refers to the Anti-Christ and his reaction to the situation.

When those of the Northern pole are united together
in the East will be great fear and dread.
A new man elected, supported by the great one who trembles,
both Rhodes and Byzantium will be stained with Barbarian blood. (VI-21)

As long as things look totally hopeless, the Anti-Christ’s power is beginning to give way in certain crucial places. This refers to when those of the northern pole – that is the United States, Canada and Russia particularly, and later on, northern Europe - manage to unite together. Even though the Anti-Christ has taken over all of Asia, after a certain amount of time he’s not able to control Russia. Russia breaks free and unites with those countries that have not yet been conquered. This union, strikes fear into the heart of the Anti-Christ - «will be great fear and dread» - because he can see the beginning of the end where he might fail at this point. «Both Rhodes and Byzantium will be stained with Barbarian blood»; being major regional head-quarters, they will see some of the bloodiest fighting.
