VMs: Kepler & the VMS

Now here I am going out on a limb but what the heck. A bold assertion that I
know absolutely no one will agree with. I will probably get laughed off the
list. Who cares!

I believe that Johanness Kepler not only knew of the VMS, but that he had it
in his possession. Also that he could read it. Now here comes the bold
assertion. That it was this document that lead him, along with Tycho Brahe's
data, that led him to form his theories of planetary motion. Someone else
was also formulating data and had hidden this in the VMS. Without this data
Kepler would not have made the final leap.

Now I expect truckloads of objections to this. So fire away. I will listen
to all reasoned arguments as to why it ain't so. If I'm right then this is
one significant document. If I'm wrong well I just lost a pizza. Big deal.
