Mad Cow Disease (BSE) - A New Age, Astrology, Bible Prophecy Analysis

The issue of Mad-Cow Disease, otherwise known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), had been in the world news in the 1990s with a number of cases in England and elsewhere in Europe. The disease is believed to have started as mutation of a protein molecule in a cow in England, and it is believed to be spread by molecules called prions. On March 20 1996 it was announced in England that the disease had crossed the species barrier and appeared to be infecting people in England. In February 2003 there were 122 BSE human deaths so far in England, and 132 total worldwide.
Mad-Cow Disease infecting people's brains was announced on March 20 1996 in England as the Comet Hyakutake passed by the constellation (I mean constellation, not astrological sign) Virgo the Virgin. I think that virgo the Virgin represents Isis, the Egyptian Goddess portrayed with cow's horns, giving us a "cow" connection. And Virgo may also represent Europa, representing Europe, who rides a bull, again giving us a "cow" connection. And Europa on a bull sounds like the woman in the Bible's last chapter, the Book of Revelation, Revelation 17 named "Babylon" who rides the beast of the Antichrist described in Revelation 13 (which may be Russia), I think the woman is Europe.
Comet Hyakutake was discovered in January 1996 by a Japanese amateur astronomer.

What is interesting about this comet, is that just before it became visible, in February 1996, it was announced that Buddha's birthplace was discovered. And it was discovered by a Japanese amateur astronomer, Japan being 50% Buddhist. So we can give this comet a connection to Buddhism, similar to the way we on this page connected Comet Hale-Bopp to Christianity and the New Age movement, because of its 2 discovers, and the Shroud fire at the time when Comet Hale-Bopp was at peak brightness. Comet Hyakutake crossed through the Constellation Draco the Dragon, and the Dragon is an important symbol in Japanese mythology. Also, Comet Hyakutake's closest approach to earth was on March 25, (5 days after the announcement on BSE in people in England), and March 25, 1996, was the Feast of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the Catholic Calendar, which commemorates the day when an angel informed Mary that she was to be the Mother of Christ. And on April 3, 1996, this comet was visible during a lunar eclipse, which interestingly occurs between Palm Sunday and Good Friday. This lunar eclipse gives a "dark side" association to the 1996 Easter period. When this comet passed near the constellation Virgo (the actual constellation, rather than the astrology sign), Mad Cow Disease appearing in people was announced to the world. The Egyptian version of Virgo, Isis, depicted with cow's horns. And Europa, the symbol of Europe, could also be considered a version of Virgo the Virgin. Europa rides a Bull-- this image is similar to the 17th chapter of the Bible's Book of Revelation, where a woman named Babylon rides a beast. Also, according to Revelation, the woman sits on a city with seven hills, which is Rome-- again implying she is Europe. It states in Revelation 18 that no one will buy her goods any more, including cattle and sheep, and souls of men. So, Mad Cow Disease brings to mind this symbol in Revelation. And note that BSE was discovered in 1986, so if we assign a galaxy to it by this number 86(Galaxy M86) as we did for Ebola, AIDS, and Influenza, Galaxy M86 is in the constellation Virgo the Virgin, again representing the woman Babylon and Isis. And note that if we assign a Book of Revelation passage to this number 86, we have Revelation 18:6, which refers to the woman Babylon:
"18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double."

An important sequence of events seem to have begun in early 1996, when Comet Hyakutake appeared. As well as in March 1996, the issue of Mad Cow Disease (also called BSE) infecting people in England was announced to the public, also on February 5, 1996, newspapers announced that Buddha's birthplace had been found in Nepal. The significant astrological event at that time: Chiron (an asteroid, associated by astrologers with health issues) was at perihelion, closest approach to the sun, on February 14, 1996. Let us consider an astrological alignment of planets from 34 years before, to help us understand these events. On February 5, 1962, there was a very significant astrological event: a close grouping of seven planets in the sign of Aquarius, grouped within 17 degrees, at the same time as a solar eclipse. Related to that date is a prophecy of the psychic Jean Dixon, described in the book "A Gift of Prophecy" by Ruth Montgomery, published in 1965 by Bantam Books. Jean Dixon was a popular psychic in the 1960s and 1970s; you could still find her predictions in the tabloids in recent years. She had a vision that on February 5, 1962, a child was born in the Middle East, who would transform the world by year 2000, creating a unifying world religion, and bringing world peace. She saw a cross growing above this man, until it covered the whole earth. This child was a descendant of the very beautiful Egyptian Queen Nefertiti and her Pharoah husband Amenhotep IV, or Akhenaten, an "enlightened" pharoah, who created a monotheistic sun-worship religion, which was quite a change from Egypt's polytheistic religion before his time. This religion was a predecessor to the later monotheistic religions that we have today. This monotheistic sun-worship religion was discarded after this Pharoah's death, however. To understand this Jean Dixon vision, we should again consider the Christian mythology of the Antichrist. The Antichrist and his ally the False Prophet dominate the world for several years, bringing world peace. This ends at the Battle of Armageddon, when the returned Christ defeats their armies. This begins a thousand year Millenium period of peace and prosperity on earth. So, who is this child Jean Dixon saw in her vision? From the description, he could be either the Antichrist, or his ally the False Prophet, or the returned Christ, or one of the Two Witnesses described in Revelation 11. The interesting thing about her prophecy is the vision of a cross above the earth. In the Southern Cross concept, an idea of mine, I consider that the 1987 Supernova in the Southern Hemisphere began a positive force in the Southern hemisphere by igniting a nearby constellation, the Southern Cross. Similarly, a 1993 supernova in the Great Bear constellation ignited a nearby constellation, Draco the Dragon, creating problems in the Northern Hemisphere, since the dragon is Satan in Biblical imagery. And you seem to see that pattern, in the last 10 years: positive change in the Southern hemisphere, with democracy coming to South America, and positive change in South Africa, while the Northern Hemisphere has had its problems. So, this Southern Cross idea fits the Jean Dixon idea of a cross forming above the earth.
The time interval between these 2 dates (1962 and 1996), 34 years, is of interest: if we consider the Biblical passage Genesis 3:4, corresponding to number 34 (a technique I like to use to analyze numbers is turn them into Biblical passage numbers), this is an incident in the Biblical Garden of Eden. Eve had been warned by God not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But in passage Genesis 3:4, the serpent encourages Eve to eat from this tree, to open her eyes, and be like God. This would relate to the idea of the Antichrist-- a man who makes himself a God.
In Greek, the language of the Bible's New Testament, each letter is also a number. Therefore, each word can be assigned a number, by totalling the letter/numbers when the word is translated into Greek. "Jesus", for example, translates as 888 this way. An interesting pattern exists, where words or phrases with related meanings are multiples of certain numbers. For "dark side" words or phrases, the numbers tend to be exact or approximate multiples of 666 or 276. 666 is the "Number of the Beast", the Antichrist, in Revelation 13. Examples related to 276: "die" corresponds to 276 in Greek, "Satan" is approximately 276x2, "evil" is 276x8, etc. And 34 years is only 1.5 days from being an exact multiple of 276 days, so 34 years is sort of a "Satanic cycle".
So, what I am proposing is that February 1996 began a critical time period related to the appearance of the Antichrist. This makes sense of some of these events: the announcement of the discovery of Buddha's birthplace, and the unexpected appearance of two bright new comets in 1996 and 1997, Mad Cow Disease appearing. The Antichrist is said to come as an "Angel of Light", like the comet, and is represented as a "star that falls from heaven". Comet Hyakutake crossed through Draco the Dragon, the constellation I said has a Satanic connection, since Satan is the Dragon in Revelation. Also, Comet Hyakutake's closest approach to earth was on March 25, which is the Feast of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the Catholic Calendar, which commemorates the day when an angel informed Mary that she was to be the Mother of Christ. And on April 3, this comet was visible during a lunar eclipse, which interestingly occurs between Palm Sunday and Good Friday. This lunar eclipse gives a "dark side" association to the 1996 Easter period, which again could be connected with the Antichrist.
Considering Chiron, an asteroid of great importance to Astrologers, Chiron's Feb. 14, 1996, perihelion agrees with this concept: both Christ and the Antichrist would be healers, like Chiron. Also, Chiron is a Centaur, and the Southern Cross used to be a part of the Centaur constellation. A recent book (a very interesting book I recommend) on Mad Cow Disease, "Deadly Feasts", by Richard Rhodes (published by Simon & Schuster, 1997), has an interesting comparison between BSE disease and Kurt Vonnegut's 1963 novel "Cat's Cradle". In this novel, an alternate form of ice, ice-nine, is created by a scientist, this ice having a high melting point so that it remains ice at room temperature. The problem with ice-nine is that it acts as a seed, crystalizing into ice-nine all the water in the world, resulting in the end of the world. The comparison to BSE is that the new crystalized form of brain molecule in BSE may in a similar way tend to crystalize the brains of the people infected with it. And comets are believed to be largely composed of frozen ice-- another connection between BSE and comet Hyakutake. BSE was announced to the public in March 1996 as Comet Hyakutake passed by the Constellation Virgo (here I am talking about the astronomical Constellation Virgo, rather than the astrological sign Virgo). Isis, the Egyptian version of the female goddess represented by Virgo, had cow's horns on her head (this was the later Egyptian mythological representation of Isis).

So this gives Virgo a "cow" connection, so it is interesting that the disease was announced as Comet Hyakutake passed by the Constellation Virgo.

An issue for Europe is that it is geographically close to Russia, and Russia is a military superpower that had been going through a period of instability, because of difficulty in converting its economy from Communism to a Western economic system. This site includes a section suggesting that Russia and the Confederation of Independent States could be the red ten horned beast in the Book of Revelation in the Bible, and Europe could be the woman named "Babylon" who rides him in Revelation 17. (Since Europa in mythology was a woman riding a bull). Note that geographically Western Europe being next to Russia, would agree with this idea of Europa riding the beast Russia. Revelation, the last chapter of the Christian Bible, consists of prophecies of disastrous future events, that many people believe are occurring now with the new millennium beginning. What I am talking about here is the Antichrist in power in Russia, and that Russia is the red 7-head 10-horned beast of the Bible's Book of Revelation (The 10 horns being the Confederation of Independent States, led by Russia, although there are more than 10 in it now. This is an angry, dangerous beast in the Book of Revelation.
Another image in the Book of Revelation chapter 17 is the woman who rides the red 10-horned Beast.

Eventually Russia will turn against Europe and burn Europa with fire. And in 2022 there is the Russian war against Ukraine. In Revelation 17, the 10 horns of the beast are 10 kings who are in league with him, I think this is the C.I.S., and the seven heads of the Beast would be the heads of the seven districts that President Putin has divided Russia into. Revelation 17 (King James Version):

17:3 "...and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."
17:4 "...having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness..."
17:12 "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast."
17:16 "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the (woman), and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire."

Note also that the woman is described in Revelation 17:6 as "drunk with the blood of saints", I believe this is referring to Europe's long history of wars, having seen more wars in the last two thousand years than anywhere else on earth, the worst wars being World War 1 and 2. The woman is described as a great city in Revelation 17:18, and in 17:15 it says that the woman consists of many peoples, nations, and languages. This also agrees with the woman being Europe.
