Re: VMs: Meaning of the VMs Zodiac labels
If you would like to follow up on the possibility that
the labels are star names, you might want to try
loading in the names of the four hundred stars of
highest magnitude on that site Nick named. Then you
could see if any of those matched the Voynich labels.
There are numerous names for most of the stars; most
of them are in Arabic.
Now, that little project seems pretty labor-intensive
and you probably already have a lot on your plate.
You may easily have over a thousand names; some stars
have as high as fifteen names listed. I don't think
it makes too much sense to track down the star names
unless we feel very sure there is nothing else the
labels may indicate.
Someone might have already tried this:
Is there any way we can track repetition per ordinal
character on the labels? I mean, like, how large the
group of first characters:
Are there only seven different first characters?
twelve? or thirty combinations of first and second
List the first characters found. If pertinent, list
the first and second characters found.
Etc., the same with the second, third, fourth, fifth
characters, and so on.
This might suggest references to planets, signs, or
degrees of the Zodiac (longitude) within the labels.
