This is remarkable. I personally would consider Autism, rather than the loons out there seeking Extraterrestrial origins. They should teach about these kindsa things in elementary to fire the minds of youngsters into the potential of humanity. Unfortunately, the European Jesus-heads who invaded Meso-America destroyed huge libraries of knowledge, assuming that it was Satan-worship—–and humanity lost a treasure trove of knowledge similar to this with the extinction of such awesome cultural relics. If this weren’t from Europe itself, I’d be surprised if it weren’t as well, similarly, destroyed. They should make perfect parchment replicas of this and sell em for $100–like that Tupac book that recreates his school books, back of napkin doodles and lyrical creation process…I would love to own one of these–talk about a conversation-starting coffee table book!
“The Voynich manuscript, described as “the world’s most mysterious manuscript,” is a work which dates to the early 15th century, possibly from northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in 1912. Some pages are missing, but the current version comprises about 240 vellum pages,[notes 1] most with illustrations. Much of the manuscript resembles an herbal of the time period, seeming to present illustrations and information about plants and their possible uses for medical purposes. However, most of the plants do not match known species, and the manuscript’s script and language remain unknown and unreadable. Possibly some form of encrypted ciphertext, the Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War I and World War II. Yet it has defied all decipherment attempts, becoming a historical cryptology cause célèbre. The mystery surrounding it has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript a subject of both fanciful theories and novels.”–wikipedia
