From the point of view of Kabbalah, the Torah is a completely secret code. Moreover, it is classified such that each person can understand it in one way or another depending on the extent of his correction or corruption.
Question: The secret is not in that I have to understand the meaning of some word?
Answer: No. You cannot extort its code from someone, open this book with a special key, or see what is hidden between the pages. It is impossible.
But if you have a certain quality—bestowal, love, exiting yourself, i.e., the quality of the upper world—then while reading the Torah, you begin to see that the book describes not our world, but a completely different, reverse upper world.
If a person can acquire such qualities that are contrary to one’s current properties, then one reads this book correctly, as it was written by its author. And if one does not possess these qualities, then one reads it like everybody else in this world.
Question: I have heard that if one picks a letter after every ten words while reading the Torah, it is possible to reveal some information in this way.
Answer: No. You can read it as you like: front to back, back to front, after every ten or twenty words—nothing will help.
Question: Can the future be predicted by this book? They say that it contains all the information.
Answer: It contains information about everything. Not only about our world, but about all the worlds, about everything that exists, about each and every one of us and all of us together, regardless of time and any possible states. But the fact is that this cannot be revealed.
Question: Is it really possible to find information about a person who will be born, suppose, in 20 years, and about what will happen to him in 50 years?
Answer: To the smallest detail. Moreover, all his external and internal properties are described there, everything that will happen to him every moment, with all the billions of people, animals, and plants, every grain of sand, all the worlds, and their mutual representations.
Question: Can Kabbalists decipher this?
Answer: Yes, to the extent of their development. They read it in the same way as we read a plain text.
