I bet 1800€ in cash /b/ can't solve the Voynich Manuscript. Paypal or Patreon. I'm dead serious:
I solved it. The author was as high as a motherfucker. Now give me my fucking money shithead!
Including using reflection/mirror Esq device? Such as, including, and/or/but: writing upside down, backwards, and shortening words (like l8r, brb) type shit whilst using cryptology?
Is there any similarities between pages with holes on certain letters? A piece of paper with holes punched out on letters to devise a "each letter represents a part of a sentence?
Can the German and Latin be split up, decoded individually to make a base word for translation?
True, referencing numbers corresponding to each language written (somewhat akin to using 1-26 for English, 26-1 for other language, flipping letters around, then repeat with other language, and possibly scramble on number code)
isn't that one of those harry potter plants?
It's a hoax written to con wealthy people out of money. There are almost NO errors in the hand written book. Copying an imaginary alphabet and reusing character strings to approximate language is fucking easy to do when you legit cannot make a mistake because it doesn't make sense anyway. Writing a real language in a similar fashion is easy to make a mistake in. How often do you hit backspace? I've hit it at least three times just writing this out.
Gib money now pls.
This is similar to what I was thinking if it's cryptological, ie: red circles are holes on a separate page, then placed upon the page, slid around to make words (prisoners use this method for decoding)
I'm the same person, meow but thanks
And I'm not familiar with Latin/greek/arabic/german letters and numbers
i feel like the answer lies somwhere inside this book
Latin, Arabic, and arabic-jeudism is fundamental for Mediterranean written languages (due to trade routes)
Keep in mind, language evolves, so try german and italian as well
Ah okay, sorry I'm drunk meow, ty
Can't solve something that is as gay and fake as you are, OP
But lets not forget we've got a whole bunch of retards dedicating their whole lives to a 2000 (or so (who gives a fuck)) pile of bundled fables
i'll fap to this now.
if it works i get they cash!
Maybe, I found this old map from jerusalem
All the plants exist, it's an old encyclopedia in my opinion
Interesting, was this around the same time period?
I could see an ancient, visual or attempt at plants acting like human nervous systems
There's more than just plants, from what I've seen
wtf is this shit why isn't the author just writing like a sane person?
i have found a man. and guess what he is properly dressed
Ernest Haeckel, descriptive images of sea creatures
Sorry, just seeing book today, don't have full off
Proof? Doesn't make it less fun to discuss btw
Huh, interesting, any more similar images?
Prolly this. Just the ramblings of a late medieval hippie. Notice the accentuations on the "flowers". This is no ordinary hemp plant to make rope, it's the green that the author is interested in.
In that page the weirdness of the language of this book is clear. In what language would you need to repeat same words like that?
prolly the guy who paid for the lot. Manuscripts were usually commissioned. Some noble who requested a biology book "with lots of naked women in it" is my guess. Bet there's medieval and renaissance sperm on those pages too.
it is just a compilation of strange explanations for natural phenomenon that people failed to understand in the same way people didn't believe cotton came from just a plant and came up with the vegetable lamb of tartary or however the fuck it is spelt
Seminarian teenage monk's practice book.
Letter and images but no actual words.
He was just trying to learn calligraphy and art to be able to produce "illuminated" books.
Later the father superior taught him other useful skills including "Fire and Ice" an amazing oral sex technique.
I'm not OP, but I'll put $45,000 in BTC that /b/ can't solve this.
>inb4 fake fag
And on this, the shittiest of all of the days in history, OP reached the ultimate level of faggotry. It was so intense that all cities within a 400 mile radius were bulldozed by a wave of intense awfulness, and all of their inhabitants were violated in every way known to man, and 57 ways previously unknown.
its a colouring book for medieval stoners
It's OG trolling, probably for Royalty to own just for lulz
It's an early Renaissance manuscript about cosmology, herbalism, biology, astronomy and pharma. You need a Cardan grille to read it, that's why no one ever managed to decipher the text.
>Implying ink, parchment and a scribble were cheap in 1400
Mass production of books doesn't begin until the invention of the press, and what did they do? Mass print the bible. Lel.
If you want to hear my prediction, then here it goes:
Some latin-fag was relaxing n shit, then suddenly they accidentally ate some Ergot fungus on some greens-related food and began to trip balls, since Ergot has a similar composition to LSD
Then, while he high, he found a book and began writing in it a bunch of undecipherable chicken scratch in latin, which would explain why some of it is in latin; the rest is bullshit noone can read.
He then drawn pictures (obviously) not knowing that they were unexplainable, then he fell asleep and died, and the book remained there until now.
Good idea maby the book is all about hydroponics and the woman in these pageis >>736641558
are just representative of belladonna witch I think translates to beautiful woman also they thorough fat woman were hot
Just some pre-internet mombo jombo that a dumb rich guy commissioned at an even dumber stoner/shaman scribble. This was early renaissance you know. That said there will always be retards.
There is no solving this shit. It was just a crazy imaginative book written by someone years ago in the same way someone might have a crazy-ass sketchbook now. It was either done as a hoax at the time, or just as a folly, or flight of fancy, whatever you want to call it. There is no sense to be made.
maybe it's a book written by witches so no one would understand and burn them?
if it's shit what was it retouched afterwards? Granted books were valuable just for being books, but I'm sure it's functional. I don't see why someone who knows calligraphy would just write a book full with gibberish. Thinking it may have been some pagan/heathen knowledge going on here. That or it's erotic literature disguised as an "encyclopaedia".
The author was a stoner tho, I think we all can agree on that.
Last on the first line could be a carrot
Second line and the one before the last reminds me of an onion, or another plant I've worked with (tulip/idontknowthename) and the special one a Venus fly trapper leaf?
Computer aren't autonomous yet anon. I wish. There was a software engineer in early 2000 who wrote a program with similar results, so that might be an indication. That said I don't understand why they haven't just digitalised all the letters and released it to the internet for the neets to analyse.
Guess the round ones would be hard. My guess is that each page had it's own Cardan Grille, prolly tied together in a secondary booklet. There's still some latin wording here and there, maybe it indicated which decipher page to use.
About the origin or why it was coded IDK. All I know is Italy was a shithole in the 15th. Well still is, but you get my drift.
In here the fucker wanted to categorize the roots for some reason. Tower on the left has the category, then there are roots with the names and some explanation. Grouped by plant type, root type, usage?
Welp, humans are masters at deceit. I could see some stoner scribble trying to sell this to a lord claiming it contains ancient secret knowledge. Then again it's quite elaborate and he still would have to pay for all the materials. But I find it implausible since there is so much effort involved.
There is speculation that one of the plants is a new-world sunflower. And since the author fucks up many other plant pics I assume he never saw most plans (other than the hemp) irl. Maybe it's some "coded" new world knowledge, but honestly this is all speculation.
here are some other people who are not naked
Where would you start the job for making Gillians card when we don't even know for what language it should be made? It could be latin, it could be medieval italic or any italian languages of the time from lombaric, alemannic, slovenic to anything. Greek and hebrew has been succested in the past.
what are those naked ladies doing? looks like some occult shit to me
See, I think some of these are upside-down.
Same row, farthest left, is also a flower, rootstock wouldn't stop into a thin stem, but look at it differently, and it becomes a flower.
Reminds me of degenerates
Thst use the same symbols often probably too often to be matching letters of another language.
Maybe it's like stating the type of word or sex of word or something
O= Male OH= female 8= neutral
O= living thing OH= living human 8= inanimate
