Nostradamaus was an astrologer and apothecary during the 16th century, who fought against the Bubonic plague and became a trusted advisor to Queen Catherine de Medici of France. He left behind a series of prophecies arranged in a thousand quatrains, written in an obscure and symbolic style using a combination of French and Latin. Due to the wars of religion between Catholics and Protestants of the time, he took great care to hide certain information in the prophecies. Over the span of five centuries, many commentaries have been published which have noted some remarkable fulfillments of these prophecies, which foretold major turning points in history such as the English Civil War, the events of the French Revolution, World War II, the rise of America as a super-power, and a future empire from the East which is yet to come. For the first time, this book reveals that Nostradamus made use of a numeric coding system which he used to mix the prophecies out of order like a gigantic jig-saw puzzle. Evidence is provided for this numeric coding system, and although hard to see at first it is explained in a simple manner for any reader to verify. Throughout the book, the prophecies are then decoded one by one, to show that the decoding system works across the majority of the prophecies and not just a select few. Some older interpretations of the prophecies are verified using this system, others are debunked, and in several cases a new interpretation that was never known before is revealed. Unlike all other books of Nostradamus, this book not only focuses on providing an accurate interpretation of the prophecies but shows that for the first time they can be systematically decoded. Well researched with objective facts, the book provides a comprehensive overall picture of the prophecies. Nostradamus himself had predicted that much of what he had written would become more clear 500 years after his time.
In addition to revealing the decoding system for the prophecies of Nostradamus, the book includes a comprehensive biography of the life of Nostradamus based on the latest research from historical scholars. Certain events in the life of Nostradamus are revealed in more detail based on the historical evidence. Moreover, the book goes behind the scenes to discover direct influences on Nostradamus which includes not only his Catholic faith, but also astrology, the Jewish Qabalah, mysticism, and Neoplatonic philosophy. Also discussed is the probably source of the inspiration of his prophecies. Countering skeptics and naturalistic philosophy, the book explores the direct influence of the spiritual world on events that take place in the natural material world, and explains how dreams and visions may reveal events of the future. Nostradamus did make use of astrology in his yearly almanacs, but that was generally not the source of his inspiration. However astronomical configurations were sometimes used to provide exact dates for some future events. Although Nostradamus hid much of this and wrote obscurely, the phenomenon of seeing the future through dreams and visions is explained in detail in the visionary experiences of Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th century scientist turned theologian. Readers will be introduced to a comprehensive spiritual philosophy that explains the existence of prophecy. An explanation is provided for the spiritual meaning of the "end of the world," the millennium, and the beginning of a new age. This work is based on 25 years of research. As a result of the findings, the author appeared as a subject matter expert on the prophecies of Nostradamus in the CBS documentary, Mysteries of the Ancient World.
