The Voynich Manuscript – named after the book collector who acquired it in 1912 – is completely awesome.
It’s illustrated by peeps with a clear knowledge of herbs, the occult and astrology but written in a secret language that NOBODY can decipher. Plus some of the plants depicted don’t actually exist.
I mean, we LOVE it, right?
It’s like some Uranian Manuscript. It’s probably a map to the God Particle. Who needs to collide atoms when they have THIS handy guide?
Here is just one bit re “astronomy” from the Wiki but check the whole thing – just amazing & so NOW for the New Moon Eclipse in knowledge-questing WOW-out Sagg:
Contains circular diagrams, some of them with suns, moons, and stars, suggestive of astronomy or astrology. One series of 12 diagrams depicts conventional symbols for the zodiacal constellations (two fish for Pisces, a bull for Taurus, a hunter with crossbow for Sagittarius, etc.). Each of these has 30 female figures arranged in two or more concentric bands. Most of the females are at least partly naked, and each holds what appears to be a labeled star or is shown with the star attached by what could be a tether or cord of some kind to either arm. The last two pages of this section (Aquarius and Capricornus, roughly January and February) were lost, while Aries and Taurus are split into four paired diagrams with 15 women and 15 stars each. Some of these diagrams are on fold-out pages.
- You guys are SO smart – can someone please go figure this out? Or just own up, admit you penned it in a past life and decipher it already?
- And i get that i am Virgo-ing out here but (a) if you go looking at this thing online it’s amazing and (b) fold out pages? That was an innovative concept in the 15th Century, was it not?
