Re: VMs: Finding

Hi Rene,

In the mean time, what do you mean with the '5 main

If the 9 rosettes are numbered
#1 #2 #3
#4 #5 #6
#7 #8 #9
(with the infamous castle rosette at #3), then #2 and #8 are very similar, both appearing to look like abstract "windmills", or "steam turbines" (stop me if you've heard it before), only #2 has thirteen "rotors", and #8 has seven "rotors". #4 also seems to contain a smaller copy of #8 inside it. I can't be sure about #6 (even the photo in Kraus is unclear), but to my eyes it seems abstract (rather than referential) in a similar way to #2, #4, and #8.

That leaves the five rosettes I'm specifically talking about - the four corners and the centre.

Incidentally, there appears to be some very faint non-Voynichese writing on the inside of the outer ring of #8, in the top-right quadrant (you can just make them out on Rene's colour image) - I don't recall anyone remarking on this before?

There is one scan of the page already, which is not
great, but the only colour one available at the
moment. Does anything you're referring to show
up on that one?

Looking at the colour image again, I'm interested to note that only three of the seven "gaps" between rotors in the #8 rosette are coloured yellow, and likewise for only some of the tips of (what I suspect are) the minarets in the centre rosette (#5)... yet in the #4 rosette, the rotors are yellow, not the gaps... very curious. :-o

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
