    Default The Voynich Manuscript ~ Download here









    This isn't an armchair treasure hunt but is probably the oldest unsolved riddle waiting to be cracked. Is it a hoax? No one knows. No one even knows what the manuscript's purpose is.

    If you are feeling really smart or really lucky...check it out.

    fox,

    very cool thread, thx...since becoming acquainted with the 'voynich' from ms's solution book, i have remained interested in this hunt/hoax...

    i have actually subscribed to the mailing list found here:

    here's a cool image with some text:

    am fascinated with the book and illustrations and think it would be cool for 'twelevers' to get into it,

    best,

    bronte

    This is an insane piece of Art. I'm really not sure what to think about it besides I believe it is proprietary encryption as many very talented codebreakers have had their day with this manuscript. Frequency won't do it. Something else is at play here...

    <EDIT:>Read this after you read an intro:

    this is some really intesnse stuff (but very interesting!)~unifixes!!:

    Default Voynich Meeting

    I actually attended a meeding held in the midlands some years ago with the VMS group.

    I have a b/w photocopy and some scanned images on CD if anyone is interested.

    I could send one over the water and you could copy and distribute it from there.

    WOW Mark....too cool!

    Very generous of you indeed. If this group can find 12, nay 13, wait-14 critters hidden in knotholes across the USA ...... we can surely crack this easy thing hehehe

    Can't wait to get my hands on an actual copy.

    Thanks again Mark...

    Hear! Hear! This group is the best. And I, totally agree, if 14 tokens can be found from crytic clues, the manuscript should be a cinch!! LOL I would love a copy too, Mark.

    And thank you Kathy for your offer, might have to take you up on that someday. Vitta
