Hello there...

Just logged into amazon.com and found a few books ABOUT the manuscripts, but I can't say as though I've heard of them before tonight.

It sounds like they are probably alchemical or magical in nature, but it seems that no one has yet reliably cracked the coded writings.

Would be interesting to hear more though!

While I have not ever heard of these before tonight I must admit to being curious in finding out more, I did a simple search on google and have come up with the following...hope this helps....
http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/voynich.html

It is full of some great links apparently. THough I have not gone through them, not in the mind frame to, but on quick observance...I noted that the picture that says including plants stars etc....the picture looks like an old school zodiac...as you can clearly make out 12 houses. Seems that these were very wise (wo)men that made this book.

It's an old manuscript that no one can solve, not even Cryptologists.

This script shows what it looks like:

Anyone care to solve?

Latin, abbreviated Latin, English, German, Norse, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Sanskrit, and Arabic all bunched up together. It's a load of fun!

I can only translate half-ass Latin so I'm out.

Greetings...


Very Interesting!

So much to study, so much to learn and so little time!

In the Light...

Looks like the writing style in the Lord of the Rings.

"Bind the consciousness of the denial of self-worth that says, "I am not worthy." I AM is the Name of God. To say this is to say, "God is not worthy. God in me is not worthy. I am worthless." When you are worthless and so say it, beloved, you have denied all God within you".
