The following information related to the possible translation of one page of the manuscript (as directly quoted from his website), as well as the
significance of the letters can be found below.
One thing the Voynich Group talks about continually is that they believe this manuscript is encoded. Great lengths have been taken to find the code
and decipher the words. After having looked over page one of this manuscript, I felt that the group was right in one aspect. It was encoded. But not
by the logical method, the mathematical method of encoding they were looking for. It was visually encoded. At least as far as I have gone with it.
Line by line updated paraphrase translation of page one of the Voynich Manuscript;
Seeing, my friend, as there is power that will prevail [the power would have to refer to the power of the devastation of the eye], be wakeful. It is
the appointed time of the Eye. Know also that opponents, deniers, have been allowed by men. They are now the head evil faction. All that are precious
to them will be killed.
The stench of sin is in the air. The eye of the moon grows white. Horus returns. That small eye is precious to us. Its removal was a horrible thing.
Evil will be separated and burned for it. They will be surrounded by the glider.
What once was will be again. You will be made to drink from this enemy. Truly the eye will destroy everything. It will pound and beat everything like
a group of lions. The eye moves in a cycle. The cycle comes again.
The eye. Look carefully into what it means. Take advice. Pray! Take advice, shake with fear. You will be surrounded. Use wisdom and knowledge. Trouble
comes from the eye. This enemy will roll up everything.
A demon was the young shoot [by inference...the only shoot that was of any historical significance in this context, was that of David. The text word,
sair, refers to the old Hebrew He-goat worship...see Gesenius] came as a party that knew about the eye. He came to make atonement and said there is
burning destruction coming from the eye.
Knowledge is the most important thing.
--the lamb has failed. Deniers will be skimmed as the foam. Laid as a heap of ruins by that which is cyclical. The swift scorching eye destroys
violently as the lion.
The story of the world messiah coming from men (root of Jesse) (sent from God) is diabolical. It oppresses the living. It is the time of the Phoenix.
It is the way of things. The living get weaker. Get knowledge. That which grows white [full moon symbolism] returns with haste.
Knowledge and wisdom are the gateway. The burning from above will be a Godly kind of overpowering.
Use knowledge (think). Make haste. Document information twice.
* / !!!!!!!! ???? you of much knowledge who the Eye will bend together. Rejoice about the existence of the Eye. Your blindness is a gift. Rejoice. You
will be oppressed. Cry out for help. You have hardened yourselves against the time of the lion. These are the times. You have stirred up trouble.
Devastation, violence, coming from the eye. Look, see, get knowledge.
What is it worth to wait tensely? Bow before the eye, humble yourself. Or you will be skimmed as the foam. Be strong together. You will be snatched
up. You will then bow down. Knowledge is the door.
Get knowledge. Look carefully at the Phoenix bird. The eye returns again. The eye propounds a riddle to all. The eye will trod upon while the glider
will gather. It is a hidden mystery.
Knowledge can be calming. The promise of Horus' return and the moon growing full are the same. Understand the Phoenix. The Phoenix returns.
Cry for help. Understand the judgment that awaits, you hardened generation. The eye propounds a riddle..what would rather cry for help than stand up
Separated in the tomb of the eye. Cry for help. Leave it behind you my beloved friend. Or be raked up with exactness.
Magician! Denier of the Eye. Bow down. Bow down to the Lamb and twice to me. [That last line is pure sarcasm.] Knowledge of the cyclical eye was
dimming. Bravo! [Sarcastic cheers]
You will be pierced, laid to waste by the eye. It will oppress your cities. Living profitably, when suddenly from above, a rejoicing faction in a
burning Temple room.
Desire the living knowledge of the return of Horus. Or burn.
The time is upon us all. Get knowledge.
You will be vanquished. Cry out for help. Desire life. The Phoenix flies; it returns again. It is the cycle of God. It is fitting. The disaster of the
living God. Calamity is at the door.
Carefully look at all of this knowledge you have in your hand, oh faction of God. The cycle of the moon and the prince of the cycle, Horus, are the
same. We wait.
Oh noble ones, trouble comes from the eye. Cry out for help. The eye will foreclose on your knowledge. You are arrogant and wrapped up in your
knowledge. You will be wrapped up in that which moves cyclically.
[More sarcasm] Live Long, you who piece together trouble as knowledge. It oppresses the living. It undermines everything about the eye. Bow your head
to live. Be humble.
Oh God, live forever. Because they have hardened themselves, they will be snatched up and trodden upon. They imitate life while the humble endeavor.
You are a leech of God's goodness.
The eye will wash everything clean.
It is my belief that the author of this work was dead serious. I also believe he was a Semite, more than likely Hebrew. I believe this because:
1) what I believe was the translation of the Voynich word SAIR (Hebrew would be, shin ain yod resh...SAIR). According to Gesenius, it follows the
Hebrew tradition of he-goat worship.
2) what I believe should be translated as a prayer to God, when I translated the line that began, "Oh God live forever" , from Voynich dc*eo, which
I believe should be written as dcheo. Which seems to be a first letter moved to the end of the word encryption, making it cheod ChI OD (cheth yod
'ain daleth) living forever. And shody ShDI, God.
And 3) based on what I have seen, he is very comfortable with Hebrew grammar, as far as letter exchanges according to Hebrew grammatical rules.
This person was also familiar with Latin equivalents for Hebrew characters. He knows which Latin letters are derived from what Hebrew letters. And he
uses these exchanges as a form of encryption.
But why encryption? The literal meaning of encrypt should conjure up all ideas of something put in a tomb, hence forgotten, buried. In (the) crypt.
The base commonized Latin meaning is that of something hidden. Someone who does not want the information found out. At least not while he lives. This
idea in itself dictates that the information contained "in the crypt" is important enough to have been put there, either for the information's sake
alone, or the fact that the author may lose his life because of the contents. Or both.
Now, if this writing is as old as is thought, one can easily see how information deemed possibly heretical would be a danger to the writer's life, as
well as the life of the information. From what little I have seen so far, this writer is anti Christianity and pro Mysteries. Making him a candidate
What we need to do is crack the encryption. I believe that this was done when Latin letter values (EVA) were given to Voynich letters. It has been
said that these assignments were random. Are they? Let's look.
What I have found thus far with the Voynich Groups random Letter Values:
A - This value has worked.
B - This may be correct and may not. According to the Voynich dictionary, which is not exhaustive, there is one word with B. Cheeb. There is a Hebrew
word (chib) derived from (ChvB) and it means to be guilty, to be legally bound. It fits what I know of the context so far, but I don't know the
sentence context. It could be right; it could be wrong.
C - This value has worked.
D - This value has worked.
E - This value has worked.
F - This value has worked and exchanges with Hebrew Peh, which Voynich character looks very much like it.
G - Close to script G? I have not run across this letter yet. According to the Voynich interlinear, there are a few words with G. One is gaiin but
might be daiin. Cpheeg which might be cpheey. The latter of both I have translated. One case of dchog which might be dchom which I believe I have
translated in one of its versions. This letter remains to be tested.
H - Looks very much like Arabic H. It has proven to work.
I - Hebrew yod, Arabic kasra, and Greek iota, as well as Latin I, are short lines. The words aiiin and AIIIN show the same basic "line" when
written. This letter has proven out.
J - I have not run into this yet. This letter, according to the interlinear, does not exist in a word except for "it might be J."
K - This value has worked.
L - This value has worked.
M - This value has worked.
N - This value has worked.
O - This value has worked.
P - This value has worked. See F above.
Q - This value has worked.
R - This value has worked.
S - This value has worked.
T - This value has worked.
U - Looks close but haven't run into it yet. Seems to be confused with N and doesn't exist in any words.
V - Looks close but have not run into it. If it works, it is more than likely vav.
X - Have not seen yet..if this value is correct, after having looked at its usages, I would first treat it with a negation value. In other words,
Y - This value has worked.
Z - Does not exist in the text.
Now, what does all this mean? To me, it points only in one direction, based on everything I have seen and heard in the past two months. There came a
time in the history of the Voynich group, when members got sick of looking at the bizarre characters used in making transcripts of the Voynich.
Necessity being the mother of invention, a method was needed to make transcript reading and usage easier on the eyes and heads of those who worked
within it. So Eva was born. Now, the way it appears to me, it was decided that they would assign random values in the form of Latin letters to the
Voynich characters. And they did just that. How did they go about doing this? Simple. First, they took all the Voynich characters that bore a
resemblance to Latin letters, and they assigned those values at random to the Voynich characters. This is why Voynich "a" looks like a, and Voynich
"o" looks like o and so on for as many as they could. It got harder matching characters with letters as they progressed, but they did the best they
What they failed to realize was that, even though z is not in the text used in a word, or so it seems based on what I saw (which means z does have a
randomly assigned as of yet unproven value), "a" was in the text and could be proven. They had inadvertently assigned the correct value to a Voynich
character. And A wasn't the only one they got right.
When I came along, no one had ever explained this random assignment to me. I looked around and thought, well...it should be read this way in this
language, and it worked. Of course, everyone was still thinking along the lines of "random assignment" and had quite a bit to say against what I was
doing. But I understand it, now that I have been forced to think about this. Random assignments were given to the Voynich characters, first based on
similarity of shape. In doing this, they inadvertently assigned the correct value to many letters. Enough letters to get me through page one.
But the mystery does not stop here. The author of the Voynich knew that this could happen. He also knew that if someone got this far, there had to be
other walls of encryption in place to discourage prying eyes from discovering a known language which was (so far) Hebrew. So he scrambled it. By
adding a couple of extra letters that may or may not follow Hebrew vowel points here and there, more confusion is generated. But the skeletal
consonantal structure is there.
The first key to opening this up is realizing certain randomly assigned Latin letter values to the Voynich characters accidentally worked.
Once this is realized, we may get our first glimpse of a message that was given in some way to at least one person, hundreds of years ago, by
extraterrestrials concerning our future doom.
