Not so poor...

On the Facebook page "Decoding the Voynich Manuscript", Marcuzio Isauro posted an image of a 1912 postcard of the Villa Mondragone (see below), and some other contemporary photographs of the opulent interiors of the Villa. "WORLD VILLA: Postcard of 1912, recto and verse, year of alleged sale of the ...

Re: Yes, no, galaxy?

Well you know me enough by now to expect I would think the comparison is coincidence. But then most of the comparisions I make, my critics say are coincidence! A sort of Oroborus of fact checking, and nobody wins. Oh well. Anyway, you may be familiar with my thought on the supernova/nova/galaxy thou...

Koen Interviews Lisa Fagan Davis

Koen Gheuens had conducted an excellent, 42 minute interview with long-time Voynich researcher respected paleographer, Lisa Fagan Davis, back in April. I only just came across it, and watched it last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xavu02bM6qo There are a lot of interesting observations by Ms...

Re: QI Monolith in Utah and Romania

Well I suppose research is the silver lining to the lockdowns, in a way. Forced to spend more time at the computer. Things are not as strict here in the USA, but then we are paying for it. Huge numbers of deaths each day. We've become surprisingly numb to it... back when the numbers were half this, ...

Re: On folio 1r

Hi Mark: I see then... Well just to make it clear, although you are probably aware of this already: There is no intended nor known relationship between the Voynich characters, and the Latin letters and Arabic numbers chosen for them, in any transcription. These transcription characters are only used...

Re: QI Monolith in Utah and Romania

Hi Bunny! I'd be surprised if they were organized to that scale... a world scale.

But you never know. They did go through the trouble of doing this in the first place, whomever they are.

Rich.

Re: On folio 1r

Hi Mark: Sorry I haven't responded to your ideas lately... although I've been reading and attempting to follow them. I do understand some of what you have done, I think. But I worry that it is so "hit or miss" that it might take you a "few million years to infinity" to happen to hit on the right pla...

Re: QI Monolith in Utah and Romania

Hi Bunny: You asked what I thought the purpose was... I had said probably art and/or publicity. I guess both are intertwined, really. Most artists want to have visibility... to communicate their work, and/or to promote sales of it, in some combination. I'm thinking of "Banksy", who gained publicity ...

Re: QI Monolith in Utah and Romania

Hi Bunny... My guess is that these are some sort of art installation, or simply a stunt of some sort to get attention. No doubt there will be copycats. It reminds me of an incident in the 1950's, in which a person put fake flying saucer in a dirt parking lot... having dug up a bit of a trench first,...
