Re: VMs: Re: NSU review of Rugg (2003)...

Hi Jeff,

While it's true that the VMs-like *output* of both your approaches are similar, aren't your *methodologies* (ie your approaches to the problem) different in almost every other respect?

Also: isn't there a (big picture) flaw in both approaches? Aren't they equivalent to trying to prove English is a hoax by examining computer poetry?

Or, in logical terms, isn't the implication arrow pointing in the wrong direction? That is, if I can write a program that can generate nonsense that could pass for Voynichese (and which I can make a better fit by increasing the complexity of my model), could that ever mean that all Voynichese is nonsense?

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