Re: Astrological symbols... decoded!
I've got one more twist to this: I'd bet dollars to do[ugh]nuts that the
mapping of astrological symbols to letters places the VMS firmly within a
tradition of astrological alphabets of the period, possibly within
alchemical texts. Adam?
I'd further wager Lombard Street to a China orange that many of those
alphabets used the fastest-moving planets as vowels, with the slower
planets and the signs (+ constellations + stars etc) as consonants.
And guess what? I think the VMS fit into this category. Using the 17 x 4
table as a prediction, you get:-
mars r (or) s
moon a (EVA a is the closest mapping to the symbol in f57v)
Does this make sense?
