Cipher Mysteries and Rome…

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 18:12:30 +0000

Just in passing: I’m planning a trip to Rome in the near future, and so have been wondering what Cipher Mysteries-related things there might be to see or do there. Armando al Pantheon The Armando al Pantheon restaurant (with its Luigi Serafini-designed alchemical crockery, complete with miniature Pantheon) is obviously on the list. I note Read More →

On postmodernism, History, Truth, and the X-Files…

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 21:18:06 +0000

Beyond the ivory-towered coterie of the late twentieth century academic world, few people cared to try to understand postmodernism, let alone wield it: even now, few mourn its death. Attempts to define what postmodernism actually was tend to come across almost as effete and self-referential as the worst postmodernist works themselves: all that can comfortably Read More →

Yet another Voynich round-up post…

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 15:14:23 +0000

Incidental news: Cipher Mysteries recently had its 25,000th comment, while it has now also had close to three million page views. Which is nice. (Just thought I’d mention it in passing.) The remainder of the post is for tying up various Voynich threads that aren’t each enough for a whole post of their own. Edith Read More →

An open letter to pretty much every linguistic Voynich theorist ever

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 19:39:33 +0000

(Please excuse the impersonality of what follows, but so many linguistic Voynich theories are popping up at the moment that responding to them all individually would be an even greater waste of my life than trawling through their sad attempts at ‘research’: sorry, hope you understand, etc.) Dear linguistic Voynich theorist, Thank you so much Read More →

Have Kondrak and Hauer finally revealed the Voynich Manuscript’s secrets? (Errrm… no, not really, sorry. But…)

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 14:18:12 +0000

Thanks to Newsweek, Fox News, The Daily Mail and The Independent [*sigh*], some techy Canadian Voynich research is currently enjoying its day in the media sun. (Hint to authors: sorry, but based on recent evidence, it would seem that you have ~48 hours to get your next funding request submitted and approved before everyone currently Read More →

Might Voynich f57v depict a nocturnal?

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:35:56 +0000

Because last year’s Voynich research brought me a step closer to German calendars, I finally got round to reading Ernst Zinner’s epic “Regiomontanus: His Life and Works” (or, rather, to Ezra Brown’s 1990 translation of the same). On the one hand, Zinner is crushingly magisterial, in both tone and deep attention to detail (though the Read More →

Cracking the Paul Rubin Cipher…

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 20:50:49 +0000

I’ve noticed a number of things about the Paul Rubin ciphertext, which are definitely beyond what the FBI’s cryptanalysts managed to find. Please feel free to advance these yet further! The Paul Rubin Ciphertext Here’s my transcription, as posted on the Cipher Foundation website, but with the individual lines numbered: [01] digIs sawthn'g mathUlley-Dulles crancklavn' Read More →

Paul Rubin’s cipher, revisited…

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 16:31:31 +0000

Back in 2015, I blogged about the ciphertext that was found taped to Paul Rubin’s stomach, and also wondered whether Rubin might have suffered from paranoid schizophrena, and whether the FBI would ever release his code-tables. On a larger scale, given that we only had a single scratchy newspaper photograph of his cipher to work Read More →

Disney Star Wars, and Shrek’s MI5 Adventure…

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 16:24:51 +0000

Just before Christmas, I went up to London for what is rapidly becoming a very traditional slice of overdone turkey at the BFI IMAX cinema. I refer, of course, to the third Disney Star Wars film, “The Last Jedi”. According to my son, the first Disney Star Wars film was two hours of recapitulation (noble Read More →
