    Who wrote Voynich manuscript?
    Do we understand its language?
    Does it make sense?

    looks interesting
    500 year old sci-fi book of drawings
    dated from the height of Romes global power out reach

    if WWII code breakers cant decipher it
    then i think its more likely to be a deliberate nonsense text
    language must have constants
    equally mathematics
    all language can be turned into mathematics
    so all mathematics can be turned into language
    so all language can be broken

    unless you do not have the full range of values inside a working equation
    in which case
    you have part of something that has no ability to form an outcome
    like half a very long equation with no reference key

    could it be written with an enigma code ?
    possibly
    if it changed on every page ?
    yes that would make sense

    so every page was a different key...
    people have probably already tried that many times

    what about rotating cypher's per sentence or line

    or worse still a key template with moving values like a punch card with moving cypher's
    so each page has a corresponding number for the cypher
    which has a randomizing effect on every page to devalue set value sets

    such a thing would be almost impossible to crack

    who was wanting what then ?
    Rome was wanting ways to send secret orders to all over the world
    so were various other global colonial intent powers

    making a fake code to sell to some foreign power to make a fortune then run off would be ideal

    occam's razor ?
    worlds oldest best scam ?

    Why the author spent so much effort to write nonsense?

    It's very likely a futile exercise trying to encourage someone like you to do a quick search at SF before posting on a well-worn subject. Anyway, said quick search reveals:
    http://www.sciforums.com/search/43901280/?q=Voynich manuscript&o=date
    A multitude of earlier posts on that issue. But then you do get a buzz just from getting responses to your machine gun level serial posting of 'inquiring' threads regardless of how well-worn the topic is - no?

    It is a myth of voynich, probably alien language
