Has anyone else here heard of the Voynich Manuscript? It's a book from centuries ago full of strange plant drawings and untranslatable text. People have been trying to figure it out for hundreds of years. There's like ten plus documentaries about it. Recently, a guy figured out that it's probably in short-hand Latin or something like that. A bootleg health book copy. What's interesting to me is how similar its aesthetic is to YN's in some ways.

Actually, whether that theory hold up or not isn't clear, but there's a good chance that it doesn't. AI has even been used to try to examine it, which just created even more questions. The latest theory is that it's partially Turkish. The only thing people mostly agree on is that it has something to do with women's health.
Some of the mystery of the books has to do with it's strange pictures of plants known and unknown and bizarre parts that look animated when you spin the the thing around. You can read it here.

I recently read that some linguistic AI found it follows the same patterns as Yiddish. But nothing translatable. My guess is that it's in a shorthand cypher of some obscure language, and we'd need to delve deeper into its origins to get a better starting point to work from.

Don't know how possible that is. Lots of history is completely lost and there probably wont ever be a way of recovering that information. If anything, information fades with time. It's interesting to think though that in thirty years people will still be able to read this thread. Stuff like this manuscript is fascinating partially because it reminds me both of how similar and different people from the past are to people now.

Yes. I wrote it in my past life.
