We have heard of Bletchley Park code breakers that during World War I broke Hitlers
secret war codes to help win an evil war. This Voynich manuscript was found IN Northern Italy in 1912 by Polish antique book collector Wilfred Voynich. It refuses to be code broken by world experts and is 15th century hand written and illustrated manuscript carbon dated to 1400-1438. The whole work of 234 pages is hand written on to vellum.
It seems to be totally have been indecipherable left to professional code breakers and history scholars scratching their heads. It is believed by many to have belonged to Tudor Alchemist and occultist John Dee ,the legendary scientist to Queen Elizabeth 11 of England.
The luminated pictures and many illustrations bear witness to medical recipes that may heal the anatomical body. Some therefore believe the manuscript book deals only with eternal life. Therefore it is protected by secret codes.
The painting of naked women treading in a bath is Jewish tradition with the bath called Mikvah which goes back over 2000 years. If the original script was in Hebrew as many have arrived at in search. Now one really knows what value this book holds. Roger Bacon the English writer owned the book at one time. We know for certain this beautiful book was treasured by The Holy Emperor Rudolf 11 as he had paid 600 gold Ducats for it. That sum today is around 90000 dollars.
In 2016 research into anagram coded text written in this unknown language presented what was thought to be the definable breakthrough. A lecture expert eventually came to the conclusion that one day a bloodless machine will crack the code over night. When Umberto Eco visited Yale university all he asked for was to see the Voynich manuscript for real He then said “The evil beauty of the Voynich manuscript is that it holds a mirror up to our souls”.
The Alberta University used anagram to come up with the language being old Hebrew. Professor Greg Konrak brought in Hebrew speaker Professor Moshe Koppel who picked out words from ancient script saying “She made recommendations to the priest, man of the house,and to me and the people.” Strange unhinged sentence to me but accepted by many as correct. No one other word since had been announced. I rest on this as it is anyone guess if correct. As Bletchley code breakers failed to crack it in 1945 I doubt all attempts as false until proved.
for 600 years this work has compelled man to see beyond it but all have failed. A code or codes intertwined wrapped in an ancient language had confused the greatest minds right up to today. What really is the message this book holds? Could it really be a hoax with no code attached ? Well! millions of believers in this codex would never agree with that.
We wait to see what will be the case in future years as no code was ever made that cant be broken unless man did not write it? Now we step into the real unknown.
Another example of coding can be found in England. It is the Shepard Monument. It was built around 1763. Called by locals in its native Staffordshire and inscribed with code that over 250 years no one has ever been able to decode it. the word is DOUOSVAVVM, if you feel a challenge coming on try it for size. It is engraved in stone across the front of this monument.
As far as the Voynich manuscript is concerned I think the work in Alberta uni may one day come very near to decoding all the words. If so well and good as for all the fuss may be it is but a garden herb book with recipes. May be the ladies book of healing properties rather than the elixir of life. If it had anything to do with the legendary John Dee than it could even be something worth having. Until we crack the code to be able to read it, it will remain a world mystery for ever.
Thank you all for your attention again on these cases. I did find this book is now for sale in print of Amazon. For all you crossword fans why not try to be the first in the world to read it, understand it and prove yourself with the world who failed at every attempt. Sound good ,I wish you luck as I could not make sense of if myself. Looks like 6 languages folded into one then every third word coded, but what do I know. Nothing .If world war two code breakers gave up on it what hope have I of cracking it. Out there someone must be good enough to see through this and open the eyes of the world to their name.
Yours faithfully Sir Kevin.
