俺の説

ヴォイニッチは暗号ではない。

でっち上げではない。

自然言語。

しかし、大層な意味があるかは疑問。

一見無意味に見える文字の羅列

詩、楽譜、帳簿、調合方法など?


Jim Reedsの仮説

"I think:
(1) the VMS was written in Europe by a literate European, and
(2) if it has a plain text, it is in a widely used European language such as Latin or Italian. Why by a "literate European"? Because the author clearly knows the ordinary Latin alphabet, a distorted and elaborated version of which forms the VMS character set. If he usually only wrote in Arabic or Hebrew, say, his letters would not look the way they do. I suppose
(3) the author must had had some contact with cryptography, which in 1470 (to make up a date) meant he had some contact with some potentate's secretary.

しかし:
(4) the book was not written by a non-European,
(5) was not written in a non-European language, and
(6), on the grounds of anachronism, was not written in a deliberately invented artificial language (but I don't mean to rule out a kind of spontaneously generated glossolalic sort of writing, or "outsider" art" writing, etc)."

という可能性も大いにありうる。
