Today’s first Voynich quote was overhead yesterday by Bill Tozier in an Ann Arbor restaurant (I presume?):-

I’m gonna find some fascist architecture!

Hmmm… might this have been that rarest of things, a Cipher Mysteries reader caught in the wild? Better still, might it have been a CM reader happy to ‘fess up? The comments section is ready and waiting for you here. 🙂

Of course, there has already been a theory linking the Voynich Manuscript with Michigan (for the simple reason that there is a theory linking everything with the VMs, if you’re bothered to look long enough). Specifically, Jan Hurych emailed me back in May about the f116v michiton oladabas page, saying:-

I got it – “mich::” stands for Michigan, apparently where the first sunflower came from 🙂

Today’s last Voynich quote (again from an unknown author) popped up on Google just over a month ago, courtesy of Wisam Mohammed:

Discoveries may excite our blood but mysteries sustain our soul. When we’re strong and arrogant, mysteries remind us how little we know of God’s world. And when we are weak and desperate, they only encourage us to believe that anything is possible.

So… who wrote that, then? 🙂

    I’m gonna find some fascist architecture! – IMHO not serious 🙂
    After reviewing Voynich MS first time it was seeming for me there is some of nacist symbols, including cross and swastika… But I don’t forget about ancient India as the source at least of second symbol. And India influence to Voynich MS sometimes appears strong 🙂

    Not sure about fascist architecture, but there has been serious discussion about “fortification imagery” such as seen by migraine sufferers during migraine aura. IMHO you don’t see it like you do in Hildegard of Bingen’s work. The stars come closer to qualifying as phosphenes.

  4. Vytautas – wow. That makes three of us. Any links to your own thoughts?
