I was thinking the other day about the seeming primacy of the Fibonacci ratio in the patterns that unfold in the markets and whether this should be elevated in our list of protocols when we apply triangulation to forecast future events. This led me to consider the 10 year “Omigod” cycle described in the chapter, “Predicting the Future” in the book. This cycle began with the peak of the Stock Market in 1929 on September 3rd, and was followed by the Nazi invasion of Poland almost exactly 10 years years later on September 1, 1939. Applying the 1.618 Fibonacci ratio to this interval gives November 3, 1945.
What was the final cessation of hostilities in World War II? On September 3, 1945, the official surrender of Japan was accepted by General Douglas MacArthur and Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz on board the American Battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. While September 3 was not the exact November date found by the Fibonacci ratio, it was a near exact anniversary date of September 1, 1939, when the war started. As we describe in the Hugh Williams shipwreck coincidence (Ch. 11, Synchronicity’s Clock), anniversary dates can trump exact mathematical sequences and should be considered direct hits.
This sequence will have to be added to the 2nd edition of the book, not only because it is quite precise, but also because…something rather stunning has been found. The stunning thing is that World War II began and ended almost on the exact anniversary date at the start of September. By itself, that is worth noting. But what makes it remarkable is that it is the second time in a row that this happened. The first time was in World War I, which began with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand on June 28, 1914 and ended with the signing of the Versailles Treaty on June 28, 1919. This 5-year time span is the basis of the repeating Versailles Cycle which has been predictive of future events (most recently the sovereignty events in Iraq in 2004 and 2009).
If the World War I time span rolled into the future meaningfully, perhaps the World War II cycle does too. In the next post, I will show you something of this. But you have the dates and the Calculator, so if your curious, you can find out yourself. You might also take a peek at the starts and endings of the Civil War and the Revolutionary War, both of which are meaningfully interesting in their own right.
