It appears I struck a nerve when offering to people that they could submit their own pet theories on the Voynichthoughts site, since I seem to be getting contributions on an almost daily basis.
Today, it was a submission by “Daniel” who, after a friendly enough introduction —
thank you for your blog. I am neither an expert nor a scientist but I curiously look up on whats new to Voynich once in a while. Thank you for giving me the chance to address some questions to the community, that came to my mind. Feel free to publish or not publish any or parts of it.
proceeded with, rather than presenting his own suggestions, a kind of questionnaire regarding the VM.
Since I find all of these questions very intelligent and thoughtful, here they are for you, in the hope of a lively discusson. To avoid getting the individual threads hopelessly entangled, I’ve decided to post Daniel’s questions individually. (I will join in the fray as soon as I find the time!)
- Information hiding
- Language, music, numbers
- Jürgen Hermes
- “Solitary” ciphers
- Editorial structure
- Lonely language
(By the way, with these posts Voynichthoughts will break the mark of 100 messages, wohoo!)
