Of The Voynich Manuscript.

                          The most mysterious book can be deciphered.

                                                                                                          Anichkin N. M.

 

 

            Modern humanity knows many different unsolved mysteries. They exist in different spheres of human activity and are of different origin, including natural, historical, geographical, man-made, etc. Among man-made mysteries a special place is the so-called "Voynich Manuscript". Currently, it is considered to be the most unsolved book.     In General, the manuscript of Voynich is a collection of drawings of plants, circular diagrams, unknown female rites and a significant text part.  On external signs it can be attributed to the encyclopedic reference book.

             Over the past few decades, many attempts have been made to decipher the manuscript Voynich. And this was done not only by fans of various fields of knowledge, but also by professionals cryptologists, including such reputable organizations as the CIA and the NSA. It should be noted that at one time they managed to crack the most complex ciphers.  Not remained aloof and specialists of other branches of knowledge, and even experts of the occult theories. Modern possibilities of computing facilities were used.  The analysis of many languages for their possible use in writing the manuscript. As a result of this painstaking work to date, the only result - the manuscript of Voynich is a real document, which is a semantic text written using an unknown language. Although there is another opinion. So, more recently, the scientist of the University of Kiel of great Britain Gordon ragg, who was engaged in decoding of RV since 2003, said that this is a skillful forgery. It is easy to notice that too much labour had to invest in a joke. And the parchment at that time was worth a lot. Chemical and radiocarbon analyses showed that the manuscript was not written before 1438.

            Leaving in this work the history of the origin and further "travel" of this artifact it makes sense to dwell on the possibility of its translation and possible content.

             The analysis of methods of approach of experts to decoding of MV showed that all of them had one mistake.  They all tried the marks, who wrote the Voynich manuscript, see the letters of the alphabet of any language, and European language.  This approach has not produced positive results.  Therefore, it is necessary to change the approach to decoding. Namely, it is necessary to find a language whose alphabet structure would correspond to the structure of the system of signs used in writing PB. I.e. for a basis to take not a single sign, and the whole system of signs in General.

           Now it is necessary to find a system in a variety of signs with which Voynich's manuscript is written.     After analyzing the signs used in the manuscript, it was possible to find such a system.    Now the question arose to find a language whose alphabet format would coincide with the format of the signs of the manuscript. Conducted the search gave outcome. Found an ancient language, the format (or structure) of the alphabet which coincided with the format (or structure) of the characters used in the text. But then it did not go smoothly. The structure of the complex characters and the alphabet of the proposed language are identical, but the number of letters was slightly more.  I had to go back to the text.  As a result, a numerical mark was found in the text itself.  Using this mark as a hint and securing a certain number of characters in two letters, everything fell into place. Later in the translation of some short words specified fixing characters for the letters was confirmed.  This is the second level of encryption of the Voynich manuscript.  Further, after analyzing the text with the already available data, it was found that in words that begin with vowels, these vowels are omitted.  Moreover, and within words vowels are used very rarely.  This can be considered the third level of encryption.  These two circumstances further exclude the possibility of using computer programs to translate the text of the manuscript Voynich.   "Manual" translation is also difficult. For example, if a word in the text consists of 4 characters, then this supposed word will correspond to 8 letters, 4 of which must be excluded.    Thus, without a perfect knowledge of the language of ancestors can not do. When I translated short words, I used information obtained on the Internet, and they are there, as you know, limited and only conventional use.  And in this case we have specific themes and ancient language.

           Using the above in the so-called" Botanical " section succumbed to the translation of the following short words (short in the text of the manuscript): Sweet drink, nectar. Food, food. Pleasure, pleasure. Grain, bread. Six. Drink, absorb. Maturation and so on.  An example is the results of translating words from the text in sheet 2. (Fig. 1).

           It is easy to notice that the meaning of the translated words corresponds to the picture. So the word, the translation of which corresponds to a "hemp, hemp, wearing hemp," says that this plant was used to obtain the starting material in the manufacture of yarn and in the subsequent material and clothing.  In our time, these plants are flax and hemp. From words "maturity, boiled food "in this case apparently should use"maturity." In many texts of this section there is a word, the translation of which means the word "six". The presence of this word can be explained as follows.  At the time of writing the manuscript Voynich acted different chronology, according to which the week consisted of nine days.  Multiplying the number of days in a week by six we get: 9 x 6 = 54.  That is, six weeks corresponds to 54 days, which in modern terms corresponds to nearly two months.  And it is known that so much time is necessary for the maturation of most plants.

                 The result gives grounds to draw the following conclusion.  In the first section of the manuscript Voynich (sheets 1-57) are plants that grow in the region of its writing, the order of their cultivation and use in everyday life.

            This is followed by a small section on sheets 57/2 – 58.   Page 57/2 shows a figure representing a pie chart (Fig.2.).  The diagram consists of 4 sectors. In each sector the silhouette of a man on which it is impossible to determine its sex (this observation further play a role).  Therefore, the information in this figure applies to all regardless of gender. There are many short words in this diagram that have been translated. These are the usual words, namely: sour milk. Dairy product. Cooked food.  Mealtime. Sometimes. Some. Contribute.  Eat, eat.  There is no doubt that in this case we are talking about the organization of proper, healthy nutrition.               

 

         Fig. 1. Plant used for cooking, and for the manufacture of clothing.

 

           Now, why four sectors.  Turning to the Vedas, we find that the food of our ancestors in the summer was four times.  Further. In each part we find the same group of words, which are translated as follows: someone. Say. Praise. Situated.  Turning to the Vedas, we find that before each meal one of those present at the table should say praise to God. Thus, it should be concluded that in this figure we are talking not only about a rational diet, but also about the ritual of eating.  On the next two pages there are words: "bread, desire, food, food, drink, clean the intestines."     This suggests that the next two text pages are devoted to healthy human nutrition.

 

      

 

                               Fig. 2. The procedure of eating.

 

             The next small section, consisting of four pages (sheets 65-66), three of which contain three plants and one text page. The fact that these plants are allocated from the General section of plants can speak about their special properties.

            As for the third, the text page that it was possible not only to translate a few words, but also to make two semantic sentences. And the meaning of the proposals is a single theme (Fig.3).   Perhaps these three separately depicted plants have certain specific medicinal properties.

 

 

 

                 Fig. 3. Description of the medicinal properties of water.

 

            This is followed by a section on sheets 67-69. No words could be translated in this section.  However, turning to the Vedas, we learn that our ancestors used the annual calculation not only by the Sun, but also by the moon. If the solar calculation in the year was nine months, the lunar months was twelve. And every month had its own name. On page 67 there are two diagrams, each of which consists of twelve sectors. Each sector of the first chart contains one word and a certain number of asterisks. This gives reason to believe that this diagram shows the months of the lunar calendar with their name, and the number of stars corresponds to the number of stars in the zodiac sign corresponding to the month.

             The next page (67/2) also contains two diagrams. Following the previous logic, we can assume that the first of them clearly visible designation of the main phases of the moon (at the time it was called "Month"): new moon (bottom left, the moon is not visible), the first quarter, full moon (visible to the whole moon), the third quarter.

              Next, there is a need to focus on the two diagrams on page 68.  The first of them shows 29 stars and each of them has a word. Returning to the Vedas, we find that the lunar month corresponded to 29.5 days of Sunny days, rounded 29.  There is a need to dwell on one fact.  Often the drawings depict a face similar to a woman's. And in some cases it is depicted in the frame of the flames. Bearing in mind that in the manuscript of Voynich there is nothing accidental and everything makes sense, we can assume that in this case the face framed by the flames denotes the Sun, and without them the moon (Month). 

              In the diagrams, the Moon is indicated twice, at the bottom and at the top, and at the bottom it is indicated in a black frame. It should be understood that so marked the new moon, i.e. dark, the moon is not visible. Respectively at the top marked the full moon light.

            Now you should notice the following. Since the lunar month in the calendar consists of 29 days, over time there is a difference in the number of days in the lunar calendar and the number of days in the real year, which increases over time. In order to compensate for this difference, according to the Vedas there was a so-called" Holy month " with a large number of days, which compensated for this difference. Now back to the second diagram. It is similar to the first one with some differences. Thus, the framing of the moon is more colorful and the Central part of the picture is surrounded by asterisks, which are made more carefully. In the Central part there are 36 stars. There is reason to believe that this is the "Holy month". The text portion at the top, probably, describes it and defines the order of occurrence and conduct.

             On page 68 there are three diagrams. There is reason to stop at the third. It is divided into a circle of 16 sectors, which are placed stars and a few words. According to the Vedas in ancient times, the day consisted of 16 hours (the content of the hour was also different). Moreover, every hour had its own name.  Therefore, we can assume that this diagram shows the hourly description of the day.

             Further, pages 69/2-74/2 contain the following section. This section consists of pie charts.   All diagrams are similar to each other. A distinctive feature of the diagrams is that their center is the zodiac sign.   But we find only 10 of the 12 characters available. This is explained as follows.  According to the curator of the manuscript Voynich it is known that part of the sheets of MV was not found. In this section we see that the sheet with number 73 is followed by the sheet with number 75, i.e. there is no 1 sheet on which 2 more diagrams should be placed.

 

 

 

            Fig. 4. The process of the cycle of pregnancy under the sign

                                                 zodiac Fish.

 

             Consider the diagram on page 70 (Fig. 4.). In the center of the diagram is most likely a sign of the zodiac Pisces. Around in concentric circles placed a total of 30 female figures with marks. In the following two diagrams, the author depicted the same zodiac signs, but in each figure of fifteen female figures. Nevertheless, this sign of the zodiac corresponds to thirty figures of women.  The situation is similar in the other figures.  As a result, we have the following:

- the figures in the charts purely female;

- all signs of the zodiac corresponds to a specific number of female figures, namely thirty;

- in most cases, the marks next to the female figures, located in the same places, are different.

              It is logical to assume that between the signs of the zodiac, silhouettes of women and the number "30" should be a likely relationship.   Take into account the fact that according to the Vedas in the week was nine days.  Multiplying nine days by thirty we get two hundred and seventy days.  Well, this period is familiar to all, or at least women. This is the full period of pregnancy of women. Now it is clear why the diagrams show only the figures of women and their thirty.

             Based on the above, it should be concluded: these diagrams show the features of pregnancy periods in women at conception under different signs of the zodiac.  As proof of this, one of the diagrams managed to translate two words: "Perhaps. Born.» There are similar words in other diagrams.

 

 

 

                 Fig. 5. Reception of medicinal bathing women.

 

 

             Then on page 75 – 85 should be the next specific section that shows women who take certain procedures. On page 84 it was possible to translate some words (Fig. 5), the meaning of which gives reason to believe that this treatment. The text portion is likely to contain the methodology of preparation and conduction of procedures.

             There is a need to return to the Vedas. According to them, in ancient times, a lot of attention was paid to the birth of healthy offspring. Constantly there were various wars, and daily work required good health. Naturally, the birth of healthy offspring depended on the woman. This fact gives reason to believe that this and the previous sections are devoted to the maintenance or restoration of women's health for the purpose of giving birth to healthy offspring.

         You should pay attention to the last section of RV (pp. 103 – 116). Section text, its peculiarity is that each paragraph is marked with an asterisk, and the asterisks alternate – with the painted center and without shading. This fact gives grounds to believe, that this conversation: question – the answer. These can be vital commandments.

             From all the above it follows that the mysterious manuscript Voynich is a kind of encyclopedia of vital knowledge accumulated by our ancestors. It seems, unfortunately, that this knowledge has been lost and the importance of its restoration cannot be overestimated.

 

PS

1. In the manuscript of Voynich there is information that is fully consistent

      the encyclopedia Britannica, 1771 edition.

2.Among other things, the manuscript has information about its possible

        Origin.  But that's a separate topic for the following

No link?

I notice that the proponent of these ideas is one Nicolai Anichkin. That probably would be you then going off your UM name.

http://mysteriouswritings.com/guest-post-by-nicolai-anichkin-the-indecipherable-voynich-manuscript/

Looks like you've been talking about this since 2016, based on the linked article.

Has any reviewed journal published this yet? 

I do believe we have discussed this several times, and many litertature experts do not believe this is the real translation.

Myself, I think it is a art work, not actual writting.

I sent the material to several peer-reviewed journals. I was told that this is not a scientific work. I don't understand why some literary critics don't consider it a real translation. I was able to identify the language used in writing The Voynich manuscript. It should be noted that this language currently exists and there is a dictionary of this language on the Internet. I used it.  I was able to determine which character corresponds to the letter of the alphabet of the language. It should be noted that some characters correspond to 2 letters. In addition, it was found that the vowels at the beginning of the words are missing completely, and inside the words are rare. Thus, only those who know the language perfectly can translate the text qualitatively. This was done, apparently, to ensure that the information of the manuscript could be owned only by people of this nationality. That is why I was able to translate only very short words, literally up to 2 – 3 characters. I think there is no doubt that the meaning of the words I translated corresponds to the theme of the drawings. I must note one important point. Many experts believe that there are no errors in the text. That's not so. There are mistakes in the text. The human factor is present. The manuscript has a key to decoding. Aattached is a part of this key.

I don’t want to be rude, but your posts don’t exactly appear to be the work of a legitimate scholar or translator — the University of Kiel, for example, is not in the UK but in Germany. 

Basic errors of fact like that speak volumes to journal editors and readers. They’re unlikely to work further with people who don’t do their homework, as it were.

It’s very telling if you’ve been pushing this seemingly simple solution to the translation for years but no one else is subscribing to it.

Maybe the problem is simply as you said. You don’t understand. 

You say: ‘some literary critics don’t consider it a real translation’, so that suggests that some do. So who are the ones who do?

Reading most of your OP (which was not a pleasure to read), I can see why people would not accept it as a legitimate work. It doesn’t read scientifically at all, and assumptions like your quote above should be left out. 

It just feels like you’re claiming that there was a lost civilization of ancients or something with all of this lost knowledge, and you’re trying to attribute the supposed lost knowledge to them. Namely that India is the center of knowledge and civilization or something like that.

"Dear" Timothy and Jaylemurph.

You told me about your level of education, thinking and upbringing. Unfortunately, all this was not enough for you to say anything about the method of deciphering the manuscript of Voynich and the results obtained. In this case, it's not just about negligent attitude to the lessons. Your upbringing was also not given enough attention. The first is a consequence of the second. As for the lost civilization. I recommend that you read the encyclopedia "Britannica" 1771 edition. From it you will learn that at that time there was the largest Empire, which was called "great Tartary". A little bit about yourself. I'm not a historian. I'm a radio engineer. History is my hobby. I'm not even comfortable teaching you history. I ask you not to comment on my materials from now on. It's insulting to me.

Well sweetie, you're just going to have to suck it up. These are open forums, and anyone & everyone is allowed to read and comment on any threads posted here.

 

So, if this manuscript has been studied for decades, and some top code crackers weren't able to decipher it, please enlighten us as how you managed it?

For instance, you claim to know the language it's written in. What language would that be, by your calculations?

How I managed, I described in detail in the article. Read carefully. In addition, I used the real history of our civilization. As for language. It's too early to open. Already many of my results were assigned to other dishonest people. For example, Greg Kondrak appropriated in 2018 the information that the text of the manuscript lacks vowels. I published this information in 2015. Thus, I can transfer information about the language only when the fact of transfer is registered in the appropriate way.

It would appear that Great Tartary was not an "empire". It was a large geographical region with a number of ruling powers:

This is the distortion of history. The encyclopedia Britannica, published in 1771, should be trusted more. In the manuscript of Voynich there is a description of this state (sheet 86).

You do realize that there are much more recent reference materials, yes?

Or would you prefer your medical doctor to use techniques from the 18th century to cure your ailments?

As to your assertion that people are looking to steal the credit, I really don't care.

Name the language of the manuscript, or stand accused of being a fraud and a charlatan.

No, it is not.

First, you are citing a notably out of date reference.

Second, you are invited to supply a specific date relevant to your claims in regards Great Tartary. Given that specific date, it will not require a great deal of research to clarify the status and variety of some of the actual ruling parties active at that date eg China, Russia, Slavic states, Mongolia, etc.

At this point, would personally hesitate to assign specifics. There does indeed appear to be some form of nationalistic bent. We shall see what evolves. The "mystery" language should be telling.

The only reason you refer to antiquated sources is if you’re deliberately using out-of-date info and want to obscure that fact or that you’re sufficiently ignorant not to understand the info cited is out of date. 

In either case, it’s a red flag you’re being academically dishonest. That’s why no editor with sense will touch your work. I wouldn’t.

And, yeah. You don’t get to pick and choose the feedback you want on this forum. Sack up and deal with the criticism (like real academics do) or don’t publicize your work. To complain about public response on a public site is childish.

Do you understand what you said? How can history be outdated? That's how You distorted the real story. And then you consider yourself scientists? You are essentially a technique of decoding the Voynich manuscript can't say anything. Here are just a nonsense to divert attention from the real results. We know your style.
