The worlds most mysterious alien text has been decoded by artificial intelligence in a major breakthrough to understand what the 5th Century Voynich manuscript, which was written in Hebrew, actually meant.

Many researchers believed the text, which depicts illustrations of, stars and mysterious humanoid figures and exotic plants, could contain the hidden secret to eternal life and even life on other planets.

The text uses ‘alien’ characters which have confused historians and code breakers for decades.

The Voynich Manuscript is stored inside a vault at Yale University and is hailed as one of the most mysterious books on the planet.

Professor Greg Kondrak of the University of Alberta was able to decode the previously mysterious language by using artificial intelligence and translation software previously tested on the UN Declaration of Human Rights before the breakthrough.

“It came up with a sentence that is grammatical, and you can interpret it. It’s a kind of strange sentence to start a manuscript but it definitely makes sense.” Kondrak explained

According to the Express: the first sentence of the manuscript says: “She made recommendations to the priest, man of the house and me and people”.

The research team believes the code involves shuffling the order of letters in each word and dropping the vowels.

And researchers have used a series of algorithms to translate the manuscript, which has featured in various Indiana Jones films.

The Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War One and World War Two.

The Bletchley Park team who deciphered the Nazi Enigma code also tried and failed to decipher the Voynich manuscript.

A language recognition system has found that 80 percent of the words in the manuscript were also found in a Hebrew dictionary.

Now scientists hope to work with historians to make more sense from the jumbled Hebrew.

The text, which has 240 pages, is now held in the Reinecke Library at Yale University.

Last year the history researcher Nicholas Gibbs claimed to have cracked the code and said it was written in a version of Latin.
