VMs: Re: The Sun, The Moon and The Stars

Well, the sun personified as female and the moon as male may have something to do with long curly golden hair and black straight hair. Yes, I know it's not gender specific, but who knows what motivated the author of the VMS. I think it would be interesting to see a psychological profile report on the mysterious scribe.

Subject: VMs: The Sun, The Moon and The Stars

Wow, this manuscript really does tease you.  I decided to sit down tonight
and compare vocabulary used around pictures of the sun and the moon.  The
idea was that they would have used the words SUN and MOON repeatedly (in
what ever language it may be in).  But, as you would expect, there were no
repeating words.  Here is what I worked with in EVA using best guess

yky.dary.chkchykoly                                        f68r1
okey.okoaiin.okol.oky.oeeeo.r.ekey.okchol.cheo.o.koiin            f68r2
otchsy.ol.shy.oteo.sal.ol.keey.oteol.choky.otchoshy            f70r2

oky.okchdy.okardy.***sar.olgy                                f68r1
okeo.okor.oko.okemy.okaisy.qokool.cheo.qo*ol                    f68r2
otchody.chokchy.okol.cheol.dal.cho.keol.dolaiin.okeol.oly        f68r3

With basic review I could not find any correlations.  Of course, there are
many encryption and ciphering schemes that would hide repeated words.

Funny, huh?  One of the strangest features of this text is repetition of
words up to five times.  Yet, you cannot find repetition when you want it.

One thing to note: the sun is personified as a woman, and the moon is
personified as a man.  What religions considered the sun female and the moon
male?  Most of the mythology I can remember identifies the sun as male.

For what it is worth, I also compiled a list of the names of the stars.  At
first glance, there is nothing too spectacular here.   Though, when sorted
alphabetically, you notice that many of them have very similar names.  There
is even an instance of two stars with the same name on the same page.

I find it odd that the names of these stars are so short.  Perhaps this is
further evidence of abbreviations.  European cultures name their stars and
organized them into constellations.  Are there any cultures that used a
different identification system (maybe numbers)?

So, I really did not come up with anything.  But, I will post this to the
list in case it gives someone else an idea, or perhaps someone will see a
pattern I am missing.
