every level - stroke adjacency, letter adjacency, letter pairs, word
structure, word-initial, word-final, Neal keys, line-beginning,
line-end, paragraph, page, language. The question also arises as to
why they would use a character set which is unsuited to fast writing
with a quill (this would seem to be a very poor decision), and
non-flamboyant content (as opposed to alchemy or obscure religious
symbols). Furthermore, even if you accept that they would be bothered
to take all those on as design aims, what was their methodology - ie,
how did they achieve them?
I'm not convinced that the effort required to produce VMs indicates
genuineness at the expense of fake. Fakers will surely go to enormous
lengths, if they think it will pay off (that could be an erroneous
assumption). Complexity of structure? Why not, if both Kelley and Dee
found such things as Enochian easy enough to perpetrate then why not
Go on - try to convince me!
