Nostradamus Code Revealed

Nostradamus’s predictions, written in the mid-16th Century, still echo true today and with good reason. Many quatrains from his “Centuries” cause alarm as world events continue to unfold. Several problems do exist in the predictions, however. For example: Why are there 9 Centuries with 100 quatrains and one with 42? Why are most predictions undated? Why predict Hitler with a small spelling error? Do other predictions of his play a role in today’s world? Nostradamus did make over 6,300 predictions we know of.

Nostradamus wrote in code to protect himself from religious zealots of his day and protect us from social unrest today. He used several languages in his work and a special form of syntax called Virgilian, from the Roman poet, Virgil. His work is best interpreted after the fact. When an event takes place it is easy to see (in some cases) the event in his predictions. This has lead skeptics to debunk Nostradamus as nothing more than a fake. Skeptics say you can read anything into Nostradamus’s predictions you want.


Of all his quatrains, only one gives a specific date the event will take place on. And the event never happened! In his almanacs, he makes predictions for each year by month with perfect accuracy. All the issues I list above started me on a research project that has changed my life. Clues in the text lead me to believe Nostradamus left us a coded message of significant importance. What I found is more than I ever imagined.

Over the last four years I worked with college students building a computer program that aligned all the work of Nostradamus, taking into account slight variations in different copies of the text and the words from different languages. Once the program was assembled, my team worked to find a hidden message. After 22 months of hard work by a team of unpaid students and me, we found the messages we hoped were there. Since the quatrains are short and messages may require more space, we tried stacking the quatrains like a holographic cube. No messages or predictions appeared at this point. Then we adjusted the holographic stack based on the “Century” and the number of the quatrain. The first message that jumped out was my name in the form of a cross lying on its side with a date running through it. The date was my birthday. I nearly passed out.

Over the last seven months I have worked on building a list of messages Nostradamus left behind. I also found the missing 58 quatrains of his Centuries buried in code. The next message after my name and birthday was “Must work alone.” So I thanked everyone for their help and started writing down all the messages. The reason will become clear in a moment.

There are several types of messages in the code. Some are a few simple words in a direct line. Most are words that cross each other. These predictions are unlike his regular predictions in that these are all date specific. There is a prediction for each month, almost like a “world news of the month” prediction, from January 1558 to December 2557. This mimics the predictions in his almanacs.

About eighty percent of the predictions stretch across months meaning the events unfolds over that time period. It is easiest to see with an illustration. Hitler is always an interesting topic and one Nostradamus mentions several times in his coded predictions. Starting on January 1933 (the month Hitler rises to power) Nostradamus says: “Hitler now in power. Terror begins.” The crossed text stretches down the holographic cube like it is reaching through time and says: “The world will descend into a second war. Allies will win.” These words reach all the way to April 1945 (the date of Hitler’s death) where two words create a flat platform: “Hitler dead.”

Several dates were of interest to me. The first is my birthday. The prediction for that month is: “Discoverer born.” Not that I needed anymore proof, but this solidified my faith in the abilities of Nostradamus. Connected to this code were instructions to keep certain predictions secret until a certain date. In other words, I was ordered by Nostradamus to reveal certain codes at a later date than the discovery date. There is a key code at the beginning of each prediction indicating when the prediction should be revealed.

Another interesting point I was interested in involved other discoverers of the code. I am assured by Nostradamus that the code will not be decoded by anyone else until August 2017, even though many will read this and start working on building the holographic cube I now possess. The next person to decode the quatrains is a woman and her date of birth and name are revealed in the code. With the information in the code I tracked down this individual without revealing myself. It will be a pleasure watching her grow in understanding

There is a reason some codes cannot be revealed. The last date of significant interest to me was my end date, the date I die. I found it. Nostradamus included the cause of death, too. Knowing this information has caused me great anxiety. Connected to this code was the message: “Now you know why some secrets cannot be told.” I will respect Nostradamus’s wishes and only reveal the future as he wishes me to.

I will publish annual predictions from Nostradamus’s code a year in advance, in the same manner his predictions were listed in his almanacs. The messages really have a worldview. Every corner of the world is mentioned. Not every year, but no single year is solely focused on one nation or continent. I will add links between the articles as they are written so you can refer back to this hub and the monthly predictions. I will list monthly predictions by year.

As one final proof for the girl that will discover the code next: You will read this article and about halfway through will want to comment. When you reach this paragraph, you will change your mind and not comment. You are 15 years old, 8 months, and three days as you read this. You would have been the third comment on this hub if you did comment.

      Hey, Keith! GREAT hub, man. Nostradamus is one of my favorite subjects--followed him on Discovery Channel. My wife hates me doing that, but I tell her that it beats running around on her--drinking with the guys and staying gone for days on end. I DO LOVE your style of writing, Keith. In all honesty. I voted up and away on this because you deserved it. And let me ask you two things: 1. how do you get that GRAY box inside your stories? I need to start doing that to mine to add that certain something to them, and 2, May I be a fan and follower of yours? I would love that. Keep up the fantastic work. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery, from a rural town, Hamilton, in northwest Alabama that resembles Mayberry, the little town you see on The Andy Griffith Show. Peace and Sanity to you, bro.

      Truly some of Nostradamus's predictions have come true which may or maynot be luck or coincidence, or revelation no one can be certain.

      While I found this hub funny, I fear that not everyone will recognize its humorous intent. Still, a disclaimer would spoil the joke.
