Stephen Bax, a linguistics professor at Bedfordshire University, believes he can solve the Voynich Manuscript. He is proceeding by comparing proper names in the manuscript with that of other languages and by comparing the Voynich to other manuscripts that have similar content.

For example,

The above images are from f.145v-212r, which is incredibly “Commentary on the calendar” by “Hovhannēs Vardapet (also known as Hovhannēs Sarkawag)” whose dates are approx 1025-1129.
The above is in Armenian, and below is the Voynich. This shows that there is likely similar content. Other manuscripts noted for similarities is the Royal 19 C.I. in Occitan,

Anania of Sirak's work on Lunar Gravitation, and Hakob Ghrimetsʻi commentaries. Many of the diagrams in the Voynich are similar to certain sects of Kabbalic esoteric tradition.



Additionally, the spin pictured (in column 2, row 1 + 2 of the first image) are Khorhdanish and are found throughout the Voynich Manuscript and across Europe.


The spin used in the diagram is "The symbol of eternity", pictured also here in this gothic stone;

The symbol can be found across Europe and Asia.


What about the problem with punctuation? Isn't it weird how the Voynich Manuscript seemingly lacks punctuation?
Well, it isn't uncommon for old manuscripts to lack much punctuation, instead they'd use something called discourse markers. The Voynich manuscript similarly uses such discourse markers.




Here is a video of Stephen Bax talking about his work last year:

Voynich Manuscript

Stephen Bax is doing a great job in figuring out what it means. Please remember that most debunkers said the book was a fraud and that the ancient language was gibberish or nonsense. Time for them to admit they were wrong. If require a lot of hard work to decipher an ancient document and saying it is a fraud is a lot easier.

Hundreds of hours were spent in trying to get the strange characters to make sense. Other researchers should join in. However, it is a lot easier to do zero. Debunkers are always screaming HOAX!

Frankly, many of the plants in the book do not even exist on earth and some people believe that it might very well be the work of an alien stranded on this planet with no way of going home and that a wealth of information awaits us. Time will tell as we say.


In the video, Stephen Bax talks about the Pleiades star cluster: Famous Seven Sisters which I believe are represented by a green pool of water with seven women. Also, there are many pictures of medicinal herbs - pages an pages. Certainly, the Voynich Manuscript is considered to be - The Most Mysterious Manuscript in our universe.


Perhaps, we need to understand more clues in order to decipher what we have before us. Researchers have tried to find out what it all means. However, we ignore evidence that does not meet the tenets of our on going narrative. For example, what about Voynich Manuscript racism. Look at all the pages. There are hundreds of people in diagrams, but all are white and no other races. Most of us might wonder why this is. There is a stunning lack of africans and asians. Researchers do not talk about this phenomenon any.

Chinese medicine was famous for using herbs for thousands of years. I find it odd that the writer of this tome did not use any. Patterns in letters are not as fixed as we would like, but some letters could be decorative in manner. Glad that Stephen Bax has worked hard to figure this book out for us.

The Centaur gathering herbs was half brown. White man/brown horse. Marco Polo wrote and drew the dog men he seen in his travels. Some were white men bodies/dog heads like the Mastiff dog.

Thank you HDRKid for the additional information!
I had never heard of the racism claim in regards to the manuscript, that is ridiculous.

Well, about that race thing, how diverse do they think Europe was in the medieval ages? There is a very high chance the author never met someone of another race. Tourism didn't exist at the time of it's alleged writing. It's not like traveling was easy. Say there happens to be a foreigner from another race within 10 miles of where you live, that's almost a full day to get there.

And also, they should note, the text isn't clear as to the race, the characters are only outlines. Is every character that isn't filled in white because paper or parchment generally a white colour? Nah. It's a silly accusation. And, if you judge them by the colour of their outlines, their skin tone would be Mediterranean or middle eastern.

I'll just make it easy for the lot of you and post the translation here sometime this week(or the next, if I'm too busy).
