It's not a cipher. It's written in proto-Romance. The translation process has already begun: "Translations by Dr. Cheshire reveal that the manuscript is a compendium of information on herbal remedies, therapeutic bathing and astrological readings concerning matters of the female mind, of the body, of reproduction, of parenting and of the heart in accordance with the Catholic and Roman pagan religious beliefs of Mediterranean Europeans during the late Medieval period."

Very well researched and presented! I wonder if the mysterious Count Saint Germaine(born 1712 a little after the MS location became unknown) deciphered the VMS and was the secret to his alchemy and his supposed immortality? There was even a Chinese man named.. Li Ching-Yuen that lived 197(his account) or 256(official record of the Chinese empire) so I wonder if he ever seen the script and knew it's mysteries? The images with the plants and the women could be telling of the health benefits of phytoestrogens found in certain plants too. As if to say 'the essence of women's health can be found by extracting from this plant' among other things. So I have to agree that it most likely is herbal and medicinal in nature. This stuff is soo fascinating.

My understanding is a father and son team have been successfully decoding this and it is based on Turkic languages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6keMgLmFEk Thus far their translations have coincided with the illustrations which accompany the texts. Matter of fact, they actually even elucidate portions and details within/of the illustrations which are not initially noticeable. So your claim 'we are no closer to cracking the cipher than it's original owners were, blah, blah"...not very accurate, is it ? Its actually promulgating the narrative of a 'mystery' ....which at the current time isn't really a mystery any longer.

Did you think that the eccashic record, is writen in English. If I look at these drawing, and start writing. What it is about. I will re write the text, translated into English. Because the geogenetic science is the same, in all language's and gallexys. The internet works the same on all planets. Geomety, genetics, mathamatics, music, vowel sounds and the bacic laws of the universe. Are a tempate formula. That applies on all planets. All this stuff is just, bacic genetics. Common knowledge. It doesn't matter what language you speak, the genetics is all the same. This book holds the missing or forgotten elements needed to practice this stuff. There are 4 most important/secret factors to acheave this level of intelligents, unknown to you. I hope you brought you PHD, CAUSE I used mine for toilet paper, some time ago. If I read every book in the world. And went to all the best schools. World you think that I could possibly under stand, the content of this book any better. Every thing that I would describe to you, from this book. Will blow you scientist out of the water... Every thing I try to relate to you, will send you right up the wall, with all your facts in hand. Kissing and screeming, ready ready to through rocks at me. How could I come up with all these seemingly crazy theories. One after another, to be able to rock all scientists so easily. Maybe they should consider my interest. This book is not what you think. The detail are out of this world to yous, modern fokes. So be prepared to have the carpet, pulled right out from under every thing that you known and understand. I heard that at one time, they where willing to pay. Any one who could desyfer the text. But there not going to pay anyone anything. Why would they pay, if they don't want to believe in your theory . If there are no facts to back it up. When your on a train, you don't realize just how fast you are going. But other people see you pass, by. This books gemetic content is much older than our history. I'd like to call it : before life. Or never ending life. (Our species) How could I some this book up in one ward : Mom ! Why, where did you come from. The objective in life is to create an off spring. We are all single links, in a contiguous chain stand of dna. And more. G

I can only think of one topic, that is Sacred enough to qualify to be the content of this particular book. This book is the closest material to match my theory, yet. Where is the only other book that describes immortality. It is the worlds biggest secrets. Where else did you think that the secret answers will show up from. What else could be in this book, that we don't already know about. I allready know the story, I can't read the text. But I can decribe the geometry within the pictures. Oh, the cure for cancer. Is in there to, but no one really wants to know that either. The secret of Adam and eve and the holly grail. Is in there to, but don't bother to solve it. It's not good for your complection. This book should be locked and kept away from people. Anyone who trys to figure it out. Without proper guidance. Will just end up in frazzled tragedy. And the world is allready to over populated. The big bang, true function. The God particle. The lingam. Life, before death. And more. To bad they won't let me near it. The only reason why I can know these things, is because. It's not my job to reveal it, to yous all.

So their was this thing I saw once that used math to show how we speak how we write how we communicate no mater what we are trying to convey is predictable kinda like a phibinochi sequence and follows it religiously kinda like how all numbers go back to 9 all language works the same way if it is conveying information that is actual communication. Sht I wish I could find it. It took books news papers and sht like that and put the number of times any word would be used and they all were the same no matter what it was from a Harry Potter book to a news paper because it was conveying information and they predicted it within a few words.

*Its not fiction dude* , that's the entire reason why it has been attracting such massive academic interest worldwide for centuries. There are laws and demonstrable / observable patterns in real world linguistics that can be used to easily distinguish fake , made up dialectic jargon from ACTUAL ones. Just an excerpt in support of what I said : "In 2014, a team led by Dr Diego Amancio of the University of São Paulo's Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences published a paper detailing a study using statistical methods to analyse the relationships of the words in the text. Instead of trying to find the meaning, Amancio's team used complex network modelling to look for connections and clusters of words. By employing concepts such as frequency and intermittence, which measure occurrence and concentration of a term in the text, Amancio was able to discover the manuscript's keywords and create three-dimensional models of the text's structure and word frequencies. Their conclusion was that in 90% of cases, the Voynich systems are similar to those of other known books such as the Bible, indicating that the book is an actual piece of text in an actual language, and not well-planned gibberish."

Witches book... It resembles modern day grimoires in subject matter. Plants, Astronomy, and Astrology are all popular subject matters in witch's journals/black books. It's not to say it's actual magic, but more spiritual type things. I'm not saying that's what it is, but that's what it reminds me of.

This channel is the best thing I’ve discovered since thrash metal. Thank you for not having a bland and boring tone that would otherwise cause me to zone out and not absorb a single piece of information. I really wish more people knew about your channel. Your style is unique and you present the information in a way like you’re just letting it speak for itself in an interesting way, even if it might be something a little more mundane such as who the owners were. Keep ‘em coming, it’s people like you that give me hope for humanity’s future! Will definitely share as much as I can.

Oh such a relief from the current style of history documentaries, which consist of a presenter walking towards the camera diagonally across the field, pausing to deliver a bon mot, lowering his/her eyes and walking out of field with an expression on the face of concealing further secrets they are not quite ready to reveal.. Perhaps, by the end of the programme, an interesting fact might be delivered, but this is not guaranteed. BBC, you are guilty.
