The mysteries surrounding the Book of Soyga, or Aldaraia, have been revealed. Its mystical contents are going to change the world as we know it.

Throughout human history there have been a number of mystical books. Many of them remain undeciphered even today. Others have vanished without a trace over the centuries.

Researchers, historians, occultists and cryptologists are still trying to unriddle secret ancient knowledge. One of the most thoroughly studied and still undeciphered books is the Voynich Manuscript. In essence it appears to be an herbal medicinal codex, written in a coded, unfamiliar language.

Alongside the Voynich Manuscript are other mystical books that are just as intriguing. First among them is the Book of Soyga, also known as Aldaraia.

Aldaraia is an astrological treatise on magic from the beginning of the 16th century. A copy of it was, at the time, in the possession of English mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, occultic philosopher and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee. He was the owner of the largest private library in his day. Dee is also thought to be the author of the Voynich Manuscript. Interestingly, Aldaraia is much older than even he had supposed. He devoted incredible amounts of time to the tables in the Book of Soyga in an effort to decode them but was unsuccessful.

The mystical book of Aldaraia consists of 197 pages total. However, it is the final pages, containing 36 tables, that are the most fascinating. Each of them consists of 36 rows and 36 columns of letters, or 46656 letters total. These have been so difficult to decipher that they've long been considered a true world mystery.

One of the theories is that Aldaraia was created back when Adam was in Heaven. Supposedly only the archangel Michael can decipher it.

Over the centuries, the book disappeared. A copy of it was rediscovered in 1994. Subsequently, cryptologists and occultists took on the task of deciphering the final 36 pages.

The enigma of the tables was finally solved by James Reeds. A mathematician and fan of ancient esoteric books, he is also part of the team working to decode the Voynich Manuscript. After breaking the code he found that the final 36 pages of Aldaraia contain a list of astrological terms, incantations and the names of angels and demons. These writings continue to inspire awe even today.
