Re: VMs: RE: The key
John, your suggestion to Jeff is not fair. " Why aren't you arguing that
translation of the VMS is correct and that he has solved the VMS? "
My solution does not need any argument - it is transparent. But you
suggested that Jeff should, I would like to suggest how it should be done.
1.. He should learn Voynich alphabet given in my Home Page.
2.. He should have some knowledge of Ukrainian language.
3.. Now he will be able to read the VMs text and made his conclusion for
or against my decipherment.
If he does not know Ukrainian, his effort will be wasted. He may learn the
alphabet and by following my example, transliterate Voynich alphabet
consisting of consonants, into Ukrainian or English alphabet. But that is
not all. He has to add vowels. If he knows Ukrainian the vowels will be
added as required in Ukrainian language. If does not know Ukrainian, the
vowels will be added according to his judgment based on his knowledge of his
language or believe. The final result will be nothing else but gibberish
Jeff believes that his approach leads to final solution. Obviously his
approach differs from my, yours and many others. But at this stage where he
is, it is too early to make any judgment. Let him believe and work. I do
respect people that believe because, believe is not the truth but it is key
to success and to the final truth. Once he reaches the final conclusion-the
truth- he will stop to believe. Until than, he should be encouraged not
