Key word... if it were A
code. Odds are the Voynich manuscript combines several codes within it, along with such other obfuscations as personal
shorthands, syllabus characters, nonsense characters, and the like.
This is either a trade log, or some sort of alchemical / occult text. if it's the latter, we have zero chance of ever deciphering it - the code was
probably kept in its writer's head, to protect himself and his work. if it's a trade log, there might
be a cipher to break it with.
A computer only knows what its programmers know. It's just able to speed up the process considerably. If we don't have the data to give the machine,
it can't make anything out of what's presented.
