    Deep inside Yale's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library lies a 240 page tome. Recently carbon dated to around 1420, its pages feature looping handwriting and hand drawn images seemingly stolen from a dream. It is called the Voynich manuscript, and it’s one of history’s biggest unsolved mysteries. The reason why? No one can figure out what it says. Stephen Bax investigates this cryptic work.

This is how a bullet journal would look like back then. No dots, no stickers, no washi tapes just good old imagination and the belief that no one would ever find or read hers or his ideas. :) Me: I have plenty journals with encrypted letters that not even I can understand, made for that story book I never finished. Future: "Wow, we have discovered an ancient book, maybe an unknown lost culture".

Why don't the scientists put the whole book in pictures for everyone to see. Maybe not an archeologist might crack a page but rather one of the computer puzzlers or cryptoanalists might find something. A child with high IQ? Sure it might be duplicated, yet at the same time if the work, which is a book that should be valued for knowledge is stolen.... will it be lost... will not. 0:34 the sun actually looks having those rings when looked at directly. I have.Why 12? so 12 stars in the white part, twelve red lines, blues and..eight outer stars, of 7 points. the six point stars are inside the so called sun's lines with the apparent center to each one. Why those colors? As if folded paper. the apparent lines of separation of text. and some dirt that looks like stars. so Cristian?? Next picture 0:40 5 leaves, 8 leaves, 7 flowerbuds 2 leaves dang it too far. 1:19 note the amount of sides to the stars, different paragraphs such as in what looks like fairer altar. It's a comparison. think, textbook is similar and it does contain all needed for textbook use...
