Hmmmm...well, I just downloaded the manuscript and looked it over for a bit. Very odd, very interesting, and very confusing. It seems to be alien,
considering all the plants that are not of this world, and no plants being of this world. All the descriptions are written in what looks like a latin
based alphabet, but I came across a page, page 53 if you have it, that has dozens of different characters that are unrelated. Some look latin based,
some look chinese based, some I don't see a base, and some just look like squiggly lines. I suppose they could be a numbering system, but the pages
are numbered using todays standard positional numbering system so I really don't know. Then there are the pages that look like a calendar. And
amazingly enough, its pretty damn close to our current calender. It starts with pisces, the pic in the OP, it has 29 pictures around the fish, two of
which half overlap. I immediately thought of days and the leap year, but then upon looking closer, the word between the fish looks like "mars".
I've come to believe this is the month and means March, pisces is mostly in march after all. The next one looks like a ram, aries? I was confused
when it only had 15 figures around it, but then I noticed the next one also had the same ram, and 15 more figures, and the word below the
ram....abiril. Next is another with two of the same animal and month, and honestly it looks like it straight up just says "may". The animal could
easily be intended as a bull, and again, two 15 figure pictures total 30 figures. Next, a man and women...gemini....30 figures around them. It
doesn't look like it says june but it's hard to read it at all. Then there's a rolled up page, I'm assuming cancer. Next page is also partially
rolled with a lion and aug?? on it. Next, a woman, virgo, 30 figures. can't read the month. Next is scales, libra, 30 figures, looks like octebre.
Next looks like a lizard, 30 figures, noveba, and the last is a guy with a crossbow, 30 figures and can't read the month. I really hope smart people
have figured this much out already. It seems the it would be a good place to start trying to decode it. Anyway, I don't really know what to make of
it all. An earth based writing system with earth months and days, yet descriptions of alien plant life and no signs of any plant life we know of. My
brain hurts. I'm really convinced more than ever that this may have been a 14th or 15th century hoax, probably for some sort of profit, but who
knows. I'm just gonna have to stick this one on the back-burner for a while and wait for a thread to pop up on here with something new about it. Good
job getting me spend 2 hours of my life trying to figure out nothing.
