Here is a detailed explanation of the Voynich Manuscript

Oh look, someone else has a linguistic coprocessor too.  This is very much the way I think, and how my mind matches up pieces of widely scattered information.  I use a similar process to hack languages I don't actually speak, or know only a little of. It's all about puzzle pieces and patterns and being able to match up disparate bits.  Well, that and having the linguistic coprocessor that provides enough speed and bandwidth to run the program.  :D  I totally get more use out of this than I would out of the factory version of human face recognition.

... and I'll bet with a little work you could program in the face recognition.

Yeah, I grok about the linguistic coprocessor... Mine's more general than that, it's a general pattern matcher, but since letters lend themselves well to patterns, cracking the code is easy...

Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that, extending cryptography techniques to general foreign language study. It's only half the battle, because vocabulary, but... *punts that process into the background and lets the coprocessor chew on it...* :D

That was interesting (having read other theories on the VOynich Manuscript).

Neato!

I'm not up to decoding these things by myself usually, possibly for lack of contextualizing information, but I can follow along with the explanation and it's always delightful to do so.
