§867 Nuclear weapons exploited by USA who employed them against Japan (1941-1945): VIII-10.

VIII-10 (§867):

A grand stench shall come out of Lausanne,
That they shall not know the origin of the matter !
All the people shall be dislodged far away !
A fire seen in the sky, the foreign people defeated.

(Puanteur grande sortira de Lausanne,
Qu'on ne saura l’origine du fait,
Lon mettra hors toute la gent loingtaine
Feu veu au ciel, peuple estranger deffait.)

NOTES: Lausanne: « VIII-10 Radioactive effects of the first atomic bombs. The key word here is “Lausanne”, which should not deceive us in making us recall the Swiss city of Lake Leman. In considering it as an anagram, we have: LAUSANNE = USA LANDE (by metaplasm of D into N). There are some words such as: Ausonne (§338, III-70), Arethusa (§890, I-87), Lausanne (§867, VIII-10), which are all introduced in order to designate America. The reason is that each of them contains the letters U S A (A U Sonne, ArethU S A or l’A U Sanne).» (Ionescu, 1987, p.593-594).

Puanteur (Stench): « The radioactive emanation is expressed here metaphorically by the olfactive, malodorous vibrations (puanteur).» (Ionescu, id., p.594).

A grand stench shall come out of Lausanne: « The radioactive effects on a large scale shall be provoked somewhere by America.» (Ionescu, id., p.594). This interpretation of Ionescu’s is not correct because he identified this atomic explosion as provoked somewhere [namely, in Japan] by USA. The real meaning of this verse is that if Lausanne is meant to designate USA, a grand stink shall come out of somewhere in USA, which leads us to the first testing explosion of an atomic bomb at the Trinity Site in Alamogord, New Mexico. Without this, there has been no public explosion of atomic bombs somewhere in USA. Moreover, and in truth, Ionescu’s anagram: LANDE (not a land, some land but moor, heath in French) seems more pertinent in translating it not as somewhere but as desert, namely the desert of Alamogord, New Mexico, where at the Trinity Site the really first atomic bomb was detonated in testing on 16 July 1945.

That they shall not know the origin of the matter, All the people shall be dislodged far away: This sentence with the initial conjunction que (that) and the two independent clauses where the verbs are in the future, is an irregular imitation within a future telling sphere of a French sentence-pattern: « que + une proposition indépendente » (that + an independent clause) with a necessary subjunctive verb expressing an imperative or a wish (cf. Ibuku, s.v. QUE, p.2016), and predicts the situation of the people dwelling near the Trinity Test Site who are to evacuate their homes by force of the authority, in case of real danger of radioactive fallout after the shot, without being informed of the truth of the first nuclear explosion testing tightly held in secrecy.

Blockade of the Test Site: « Project leaders decided a test of the plutonium bomb was essential before it could be used as a weapon of war. From a list of eight sites in California,Texas, New Mexico and Colorado, Trinity Site was chosen as the test site. The area already was controlled by the government because it was part of the Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range which was established in 1942. The secluded Jornada del Muerto was perfect as it provided isolation for secrecy and safety, but was still close to Los Alamos. In the fall of 1944 soldiers starting arriving at Trinity Site to prepare for the test. Marvin Davis and his military police unit arrived from Los Alamos at the site on Dec. 30, 1944. The unit set up security checkpoints around the area and had plans to use horses to ride patrol. According to Davis the distances were too great and they resorted to jeeps and trucks for transportation. Of course, some of the soldiers were from cities and unfamiliar with being outdoors a lot. Davis said he went to relieve a guard at the Mockingbird Gap post and the soldier told Davis he was surprised by the number of "crawdads" in the area considering it was so dry. Davis gave the young man a quick lesson on scorpions and warned him not to touch. As the soldiers at Trinity Site settled in they became familiar with Socorro. Gasoline and diesel was purchased from the Standard bulk plant in Socorro. According to Davis, they established a post office box, number 632, in Socorro so getting their mail was convenient. All the trips into town also offered them the chance to get their hair cut in the barbershop in town. If they didn't use the shop, SGT Greyshock used horse clippers to trim their hair.» (
U.S. Army, 2018, TrinityHistory).

Plans of Evacuation: « Evacuation Report: This is a report filed by Major Palmer on July 18, 1945. It deals with the plans to evacuate civilians around the Trinity Site area if high concentrations of radioactive fallout drifted off the Alamogordo Bombing Range.
  A. Equipment and Personnel. This detachment consisted of 140 enlisted men, 4 officers, 140 vehicles, including one 500 gallon improvised water tank for drinking purposes, 2 lister bags, latrine flies, 30 pyramidal tents, 1000 type "C" and "K" rations, coffee, sugar, milk, and three field ranges.
  B. Organization. The detachment was formed into four platoons of nine vehicles each.
  C. Operating Base. The detachment moved into its bivouac area 14 July. For security reasons this area was 40 miles from Trinity; the detachment remained there until the morning of 15 July, then moved to a semi-permanent Base Camp, with an alternate base site Selected. The Base Camp was approximately nine miles from Zero. The detachment Commander returned to Base Camp from Trinity around Mid night 15 July with last minute instructions. The detachment was alerted in case the wind shifted in that direction, so it could move quickly to the alternate site.
  D. Operations. The orders received by the detachment Commander from General Farrell were generally as follows: 1. The two prepared press releases were made known to the detachment Commander. One in case of no evacuation, which stated briefly that an ammunition dump had blown up; and one in case of evacuation, which stated that an ammunition dump had blown up which contained gas shells and the people would be evacuated for 24 hours to protect them from the gas. 2. The detachment Commander would work with Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Herschfelter, with their crew of monitors, and was to evacuate upon Mr. Hoffman´s request.

The detachment Commander planned, in case of evacuation, to set-up the Base Camp as a shelter for the people; tents and shelters would be provided to cover and feed 450 people for two days. This was ample shelter for the small population centers that were close enough to be in immediate danger. The larger centers were some distance away and there was ample time to transport them to Alamogordo Air Field and house them in barracks. In cases of one or two families, it was planned to send them to a hotel in a near-by town.

Immediately after the shot, the wind drift was ascertained to be sure the Base Camp was not in danger. Monitors were immediately sent out in the direction of the cloud drift to check the approximate width and degree of contamination of the area under the cloud. A small headquarters was set-up at Bingham, near the center of the area in the most immediate danger. The monitors worked in a wide area from this base reporting in to Mr. Hoffman or Mr. Herschfelter. One re-enforced platoon, under Captain Huene, was held at Bingham; the rest of the detachment was held in reserve at Base Camp.
Fortunately no evacuations had to be made. Mr. Hoffman released the detachment about 1300 hours 16 July; by that time, any danger of serious contamination had passed.

The detachment Commander would like to take this time to say that the Officers and men of the detachment were alert, obedient, and conducted themselves in a superior manner throughout the experiment.

Ionescu’s interpretation: « The fact that shall have a source not yet unknown (Qu'on ne saura l’origine du fait)» (Ionescu, id.) is wrong because the first atomic bombs were worked out once the sufficient theoretical discoveries were made about the secret of the physics of atoms.

A fire seen in the sky, the foreign people defeated
: As the last phrase predicts the defeat of the Japanese people by the Allies, particularly by USA in WWII, “the fire seen in the sky” refers evidently to the first atomic bombing attack on Hiroshima (cf. Ionescu, id., p.594). And the expression: “the fire seen in the sky” itself alludes evidently to the atomic attack on Hiroshima, for the bomb was timed to explode about 600m high over the city of Hiroshima, whereas the Trinity testing bomb was hoisted atop of the 30m steel tower, the explosion there having been seen almost upon the horizontal earth floor (cf. U.S. Department of Energy, 2019, World's First Nuclear Explosion) even by the closest observers present some 9 km afar off: « 100-Ton Test on May 7 The bomb was assembled under the tower on July 13. The plutonium core was inserted into the device with some difficulty. On the first try it stuck. After letting the temperatures of the plutonium and casing equalize the core slid smoothly into place. Once the assembly was complete many of the men went swimming in the water tank east of the McDonald ranch house. The next morning the entire bomb was raised to the top of the 100-foot steel tower and placed in a small shelter (cf. Michals, 2019). A crew then attached all the detonators and by 5 p.m. it was complete. Observation Points Three observation points were established at 10,000 yards [= 9.1 km] from ground zero. These were wooden shelters protected by concrete and earth. The south bunker served as the control center for the test. The automatic firing device was triggered from there as key men such as Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, head of Los Alamos, watched. Many scientists and support personnel, including Gen. Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project, watched the explosion from base camp which was ten miles [= 16km] southwest of ground zero. Most visiting VIPs watched from Compania Hill, 20 miles [32km] northwest of ground zero. The test was scheduled for 4 a.m. July 16, but rain and lightning early that morning caused it to be postponed. The device could not be exploded under rainy conditions because rain and winds would increase the danger from radioactive fallout and interfere with observation of the test. At 4:45 a.m. the crucial weather report came through announcing calm to light winds with broken clouds for the following two hours. At 5:10 the countdown started and at 5:29:45 the device exploded successfully. To most observers the brilliance of the light from the explosion, watched through dark glasses, overshadowed the shock wave and sound that arrived later. What It Was Like Hans Bethe, one of the contributing scientists, wrote "it looked like a giant magnesium flare which kept on for what seemed a whole minute but was actually one or two seconds.The white ball grew and after a few seconds became clouded with dust whipped up by the explosion from the ground and rose and left behind a black trail of dust particles." Joe McKibben, another scientist, said, "We had a lot of flood lights on for taking movies of the control panel. When the bomb went off, the lights were drowned out by the big light coming in through the open door in the back." Others were impressed by the heat they immediately felt. Military policeman Davis said, "The heat was like opening up an oven door, even at 10 miles." Dr. Phillip Morrison said, "Suddenly, not only was there a bright light but where we were, 10 miles away, there was the heat of the sun on our faces ..... Then, only minutes later, the real sun rose and again you felt the same heat to the face from the sunrise. So we saw two sunrises." Although no information on the test was released until after the atomic bomb was used as a weapon against Japan, people in New Mexico knew something had happened. The shock broke windows 120 miles away and was felt by many at least 160 miles away. Army officials simply stated that a munitions storage area had accidently exploded at the Alamogordo Bombing Range. The explosion did not make much of a crater. Most eyewitnesses describe the area as more of a small depression instead of a crater. The heat of the blast vaporized the steel tower and melted the desert sand and turned it into a green glassy substance. It was called Trinitite and can still be seen in the area. At one time Trinitite completely covered the depression made by the explosion. Afterwards the depression was filled and much of the Trinitite was taken away by the Nuclear Energy Commission.» (U.S. Army, 2018, TrinityHistory).

SUBJECT: Comments on Trinity Test Shot Trip.

At about 1945 MWT, 15 July 1945, the coordinating council started from the Los Alamos Technical Area, riding in a three bus convoy with three G.I. sedans and with a G.I. truck carrying spare equipment… We proceeded to Trinity (just beyond San Antonio, N. Mex). We were first stopped at the bivouac of Major T.O. Palmer´s Special Detachment of Engineers, who were stationed there for any emergency such as evacuation of personnel. After a brief check we proceeded to the Military Police Post No. 2 which was about 20 miles from zero point and about ten miles from the Trinity Base Camp. This was approximately 0200 to 0230 16 July 1945. About 0500 the searchlights allegedly at 6 miles from zero point started playing about, apparently fixing cloud elevation. At about 0520, the warning came by radio that the test was about to take place in 10 minutes. I stretched out on a blanket facing south. I was staring straight ahead with my open left eye covered by a welders glass and my right eye remaining open and uncovered. Suddenly, my right eye was blinded by a light which appeared instantaneously all about without any build up of intensity. My left eye could see the ball of fire start up like a tremendous bubble or nob-like mushroom. I
dropped the glass from my left eye almost immediately and watched the light climb upward. The light intensity fell rapidly hence did not blind my left eye but it was still amazingly bright. It turned yellow, then red, and then beautiful purple. At first it had a translucent character but shortly turned to a tinted or colored white smoke appearance. The ball of fire seemed to rise in something of toadstool effect. Later the column proceeded as a cylinder of white smoke; it seemed to move ponderously. A hole was punched through the clouds but two fog rings appeared well above the white smoke column. There was a spontaneous cheer from the observers. Dr. von Neumann said "that was at least 5,000 tons and probably a lot more." My estimate of the width of the ball of fire was guessed to be 1 to 2 miles at that time. Someone said keep your mouth open and just then, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes after the light flash, a sharp loud crack swept over us -- it reverberated through the mountain like thunder.

A fire seen in the sky: « At 0715 hours on August 6, 1945, the weather scout B-29 over Hiroshima piloted by Major Claude Eatherly signalled that the target was open, thus sealing the fate of the city. As the weather plane departed, the Hiroshima all-clear air defence signal was sounded at 0731. Until now the city had almost entirely escaped air attack, and few people took the appearance of a few high-flying planes seriously. Thus sightings at 0806 of two B-29’s with a third in trail, all flying very high at an altitude of 31,600 feet, did not seem significant enough to call another defence alert. But those Japanese who watched the approaching planes (and who survived) noticed that the lead bombers suddenly separated in tight diving turns that carried them rapidly away from a point in space where something fell from the planes – the “Little Boy” from the “Enola Gay” and parachuted instruments from the observation plane. Exactly 17 seconds after 0815 (sic) [43 seconds after 0815:17] hours an instant of pure, blinding, utterly intense bluish-white light cut across the sky, followed by searing heat, a thousand-fold crash of thunder, and finally an earth shaking blast that sent a mushroom cloud of dust and debris boiling up to 50,000 feet. This was the moment that survivors at Hiroshima would remember as the pikadon - the pika or “flash” [A fire seen in the sky] followed by the don or “thunder”… As at Hiroshima, the “Fat Man” at Nagasaki was detonated in the air and at an altitude of approximately 1,750 feet [A fire seen in the sky].» (Bauer, 1979, p.656-658).

The foreign people defeated: « After a detailed investigation of Japan’s struggle to end the war, the United States Strategic Bombing Survey concluded that “certainly prior to 31 December 1945, and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated.” On the other hand, the atomic attack doubtless hastened the Sovit Union’s belated declaration of war upon Japan on August 8, and it certainly provided a powerful catalyst which enables Japan’s peace leaders to bring about a surrender over the continuing objections of War Minister Anami and the Army and Navy chiefs-of-staff. After Hiroshima the Japanese militarists attempted alternately to obscure the nature of the nuclear explosion and argued privately that the United States could not possibly possess enough radioactive material to permit a continuation of such attacks. The effect of these arguments failed with the Nagasaki strike, and in a hurriedly-called Imperial Conference on the night of August 9, 1945 Emperor Hirohito – the god figure who had never before been able to act without a consensus of his advisers – bluntly told the militarists that “to continue the war means nothing but the destruction of the whole nation” and that “the time has come when we must bear the unbearable”. By the early morning hours of August 10, cables were on their way to Japan’s diplomatic representatives in Berne and Stockholm announcing the nation’s acceptance of the Potsdam ultimatum, with the sole proviso that the Tenno system would be preserved. This was to be the acceptable condition for the war’s end when it came officially on September 2.» (Bauer, id., p.658).

Gembakusho (
原爆症, Radiation sickness among the hibak’sha, the “people who received the bomb” at Hiroshima and Nagasaki): « In plans for the atomic strikes, Manhattan Engineer District scientists were knowledgeable about the potential effects of radiation emitted from nuclear explosions, although the exact effect of the nuclear radiation on human tissue was, and continue to be, incompletely explored. According to the Japanese, individuals very near to the centre of the atomic explosions, but who escaped flash burns or secondary injuries, died rather quickly, the majority within a week, autopsies showing almost complete absence of white blood cells and deterioration of bone marrow. Most radiation cases, who were at greater distances, did not show severe symptoms for a week to a month after the bombs, when sudden high fevers marked the often-fatal onset of radiation sickness, again with dwindling white blood cell counts and disappearing bone marrow. At both Hiroshima and Nagasaki immediate deaths from radiation peaked in three to four weeks and practically ceased after seven to eight weeks. As for the hibak’sha, the atomic casualty lists were never closed, since persons originally exposed have continued to die, apparently-although not completely conclusively- before their time. Fifteen years after the pikadon, for example, Japanese physicians began to find abnormal incidence of thyroid cancer in people who were young children at the time of the bomb, and there has been an identified higher incidence of eye cataracts and leukaemia among the survivors of the A-bomb.» (Bauer, id., p.658-660);

« Several lines of the Epistle to Henry II (
№3, p.14), where Nostradamus shows in a hidden way the effects of the radioactivity, after the atomic bombardment of the two cities of Japan. Here is the passage: “ - Shall be weakened their maritime forces [Japanese Fleets] by the Occidentals [the Americans]. And to this reign [Japanese Government] shall be made a grand desolation and the greatest cities [Hiroshima and Nagasaki] shall be depopulated, and those who shall enter there shall be taken into the vengeance of the anger of God. - ”. » (Ionescu, id., p.594-595).

The vengeance of the anger of God” is not a moral divine punishment, but the incompletely known sickness of atomic radiation, for « we have translated these words into Latin, which has lead us to the following anagram: IRA DEI [anger of God] = IRADIÉ, a word perfectly equivalent (phonetically) to IRRADIÉ [the irradiated, hibak’sha].» (Ionescu, id., p.595).

Several other lines next to the passage above cited are as follows: “ And shall remain the sepulcher of so great a veneration during a space of long time in the evening universally visioned by the eyes of all over the world.”- » (
№3, p.14). This is the Irradiated City Hiroshima-Nagasaki as the Universal Memento Mori.
