10 of the world's biggest unsolved mysteries: Voynich Manuscript
Hello all , I am searching a contact of the Pearson who is dedicatly doing research on this book and who will be open for discussion on this book can anyone provide the same , it will be very grateful, thank you
For me, this mystery has a rather tragic aspect. That its creator-author obviously possessed a special creative genius which seems to have gone unrecognized in his/her own time; and up until the present.
I hope someone will uncover the genius behind this beautifully done, intriguing work. It is truly remarkable! And, hoax or not, ranks right up there with 'THE DEVILS BIBLE'.
I know it is the first five books of King James. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, numbers, and Deuteronomy. Even though this was 200 years prior.
Voynich Manuscript Written Czech language + Gematria system.
This book was written by Leonardo Davinci when he disappeared for 2 years after finding a secret cave. He entered this cave and found the entrance to hollow earth where he met with the inner earth civilization. There he stayed for 2 years studying the plants, life, and sciences of the inner earth people, who are far more advance then us surface dwellers...........
Don't believe the hoax theory. People who go for it are just saying "So ok, I can't work it out, alright, but don't-call-me-stupid,... umm it's the manuscript's fault, right?"
The inner earth that admiral Byrd entered in Antarctica on operation high jump 1947 Cain was banished to a cavern with amrk that anyone else sees they will know hat it means however this inplies there were other people there so it seems like the same place Aryanis where the ariyans live in the hollow earth
They could be plants that became extinct from an earlier age....just as we have recently extinct plants and animals now. Not so unlikely considering some species recently discovered tend to exist only in their place of origin (such as a remote island) and we do know that there have been islands that have recently submerged due to tectonic activity. A remote island such as this could have also had an active volcano that may have submerged or buried life on it at some time as well.
That's a great plot for a fiction novel. Are you writing one? What's the name for the crazy dude hero? Is there a female lead? Hope you get these maybe-bits plotted - I can see it's still planning stage.
I have it! These are plants from the Garden of Eden!
Seriously though, this book is intriguing. Hope someone figures it out.
Do findings such as this, as well as the numerous and apparently unknown ones, humble us the presently so-called ''Modern Age"?
just because the pages Carbon dated to fifteenth century ....does this necessarily mean the illustration and script are from same period....?
this is only 600 years old! the Chinese already had identical books on all subjects, in all known languages at the time! it could be transcribed into a less familiar language as a trade item. the pictures are bad, not of unknown species just like the Chinese books on animals were! Many of the stone monuments they left are in multiple languages, some of which are now unknown.
maybe it's just a badly drawn botany book in a code language- the plants appear to be recognizable but not quite.
it is clearly a hoax. Just because it is an old book and took a long time to write does not mean aliens wrote it. People have imaginations and creativity.
Its not a hoax, people really didn't have any need to make hoax books in the 15th century. What it is most likely is an Alchemist's/herbalist's notebook. At the time it was written people would have been accused of being a witch for owning such a book. So the author most likely invented his/hers own language to hide what they were writing about, the astronomical drawings are relating to seasons, its all an ingenious way to hide your work in a time of persecution.
Just because "aliens didn't write it" does not mean that it must be hoax! That is illogical and downright silly!...
Carbon dating? It seems strange that a hoax would have been made so long ago. Perhaps it is fictional...although impressive that the person created a language. It would be interesting to see linguistic analysis of it (rules etc.).
ALL PLANTS, AND HUMANS were colonized here from DIFFERENT PLANETS and Star Systems,and were seeded here.
Strange, i remember seeing another artifact online with really similar text. To be honest i think it was the same, i wish i could remember what it was.
This plant was around before the Ice Age. I wonder how this person got this plant and had drawn it?
This appears to be an Indian ledger written describing the genetic brake down of certain types of plants , it appears to describe the root systems, leaf systems, and reproductive part of the plants pictured. It appears the writings to be the physics of they're make up.
its definatly written left to right .. and the repetition of the words in every line sugests its descriptive - it looks like an alchemy/herbalism book giving the random numbers that pop up .. again in not about double digits, this could be a scribe learning his craft by coping over old scrolls laying about .. but when ??
Perhaps the mismatching of flowers, buds and stems are subtle indicators of similar mismatching of letters, thus making a recogniseable word into code.
There are many ancient obsolete languages found in the remains which are illegible to modern persons.Some are inscibed on mountains and later photographs taken.
This may shed some light on it
As one poster noted the plants are mismatched in that stems and buds belong to different plants.
To solve the riddle you have to put the plants with the correct parts together which will then give you the answers that you seek.
I think you will find these plants are known to us.Once you have the plant names it will be like solving a crytogram.
Quite easy really.
The botanicals portrayed appear to be Frankenstein plants. Mismatched KNOWN flower-heads with non botanically-correct stems, leaves and roots. "Non-correct," yet nevertheless recognizable. To what end? We're not sure.
The leaves and stems are all ok. So are the flowers - if you stop thinking the world ended at the Mediterranean. People had a literate and medicinal culture which was old before the first century AD, and still going strong. The script here is about the same height as both Carolingian minuscule.. and the usual size for many eastern scripts, from Tamil to Chinese. Just as likely to be a European copy of information they got from somewhere else, imo
This more looks like ancient Tamil Language script (Epirates, Sanskirt are the child languares of Tamil)
We are profoundly ignorant about dark matter and dark energy, yet they comprise about 96% of the know universe. This makes them far more important and far more interesting than couple of ancient texts we haven't deciphered yet.
It has been shown that numbers were added much later. And lots of information in it shows it can't be a kid's work, either.
Try the monasteries, looks like a not illuminated manuscript . the monks had all the time to make these.
Funny it has standard Arabic numbering for the page number- top right- 34, maybe 35. Probably a young kid who was a bad artist but still wanted to document the information.
Usually, we decide something's a hoax because something about the manuscript doesn't fit with the historical, chemical or other data.
Because all the data is just fine - fits the fifteenth-century - the 'hoax' argument boils down to calling it a "perfect hoax" which means one for which there is *NO* evidence.
if you write a non fictional book that takes a lot of time ,, this is that a non fictional book about plants . anyone can come up with their own language , that's not hard to do, and the letters all seem to be recognizable????
The book was written in Italy between 1403-1435. This is fact. But it does not mean that the guy who wrote it was was from Italy. It cost a lot of money to produce this book. Written on skin and some of it was large pieces of skin which would of been specially made. I don't believe the theory that it was hoaxes.
the people may have been conquered but the plants would not have been, it was a failed hoax, look at where it came from. antiquities book dealer.
The problem I'm having is that it seems way too advanced a book w/such
intricate writing and drawings for the time. The language is completely unknown, yet there were only really a handful of civilazations at the time
that could read, write, script. I can't believe that no one has been able to
unlock this mystery.
but carbon dating has revealed that its pages were made sometime between 1404 and 1438
A handful of civilizations - 600 years ago. You ever heard of the subject "history" ?
Rugg claimed that it was a hoax made possible by using a modified Cardan grille combined with a large table of meaningless syllables. However, carbon dating has proved that this manuscript was made nearly a century before Cardab grilles even existed.
actually, given the ridiculous amount of competition in the [communities] of the time period, it could very well be a hoax of a sort, a joke perpetrated by the author ... most treatises published either publicly or in in-house journals, were ridiculed anyway.
this is what I think, and thought even before I read about Rugg's work, and after, based on the small flaw.
they think these cryptological methods aren't possible of the period, as we have no record of them (!)
Its a book on medieval torching art.
For transferring the culture associated to it.
It lasted centuries, it was a culture.
Robbings&murders in Paris after the revolution,
were done by unemployed workers of the Bastilji.
They had no other skills...
Too bad, that nobody has learned anything from that time in history...
Just remember this book was likely written pre-Gutenburg. That means that it was handmade over likely months if not years. Only the elite rich and the church had access to large amounts of paper, ink, etc. No one would have spent the time or effort on a project like this if it was just the ravings of a mad man.
The ink was NOT free in this case. If you do more research, the ink was Iron gall, not anything from plants. From what I read, the paper is not made out of anything like parchment or papyrus, it is vellum, which was expensive, and made from an animal's skin.
I do, however agree that it is entirely possible that someone with a serious mental illness may have created this...or that they have had an encounter with something that many of us have not, and never will...however, this contradicts my belief system.
Read the Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. It shows a real life example of a crazy book that the academic world tried to solve and find meaning behind but couldn't simply because the author was a psychopath and their actions have little meaning. Maybe this botanical book was just written by a nutjob? No mystery at all.
What if it is just a fictional book from some bored, eccentric alchemist? Think of Tolkien and his made up languages for the elves and orcs, what if this was that only 500 years earlier?
Ah, but Tolien did not write his entire book in the made up language of the Elfs. Why go to such extremes and take so much time to write a book that apparently no-one can read (except Elves)?
