Bizarre Tuesday on HolyBooks.com: The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus

Posted on | November 8, 2011 | 65 Comments

The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus. Longtime friends of HolyBooks.com will recognize that I have a weakness for the more peculiar works and I post them here regardless of their spiritual attributes in admiration of human creativity. Today I have two of these goodies for you and if you are into this, you will not be disappointed. These two works have one thing in common; you will never understand a single word of them.

The Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript Illustrations

The Voynich Manuscript is written in an unknown alphabet. Not a living soul knows what it means. During centuries top military code-breakers, linguists, historians, and laymen have tried to decipher it, all failed. People have gone insane in their obsessions trying to figure it out. It dates back to the early 15th century. Enjoy the meticulous illustrations of botanical fantasies.

CODEX Seraphinianus Illustrations

CODEX Serahinianus..What it lacks in any kind of meaningfulness, it returns in max psychedelic weird assness – and illustrative beauty. As The Voynich Manuscript, it is written in Italy in an incomprehensible language with a made for the occasion set of characters.

Enough said you can find detailed bios on the works many places on the internet, try Wikipedia or some of the dedicated forums. Download the books here. Please bear in mind that both works are more than 50 MB, they might take a while to download:

    i just decoded the codex Seraphinainus and it is not gibberish. It is probably the most powerful book in the world besides the one I am writing . It contains esoteric arcanum knowledge lost to man.
    it is abundantly powerful and encoded in symbols because man doesn’t know himself.

    What is startling are the amount of — that think because something is ancient it somehow has some deeper meaning now losteth to man lol
    When it’s just people making up shit to try and explain stuff to themselves that can’t be explained, trying to find a rational and a pattern that can make sense, looking for it.
    That one true fact is human, there are thousands of these made up meanderings and it continues to this day.
    So although these still remain fascinating codex it is the human thought process which is fascinating there is no hidden powers of secrets you demented nutters

    Btw on the page 222 we can read, in french :
    “fille orgiaque surgie et devinée, le premier jour, [sur la] digue [??] Balbe”

    “Balbe” is a name but I don’t know what it is.

    The rest means “orgiastic girl emerged and divined, the first day, on the dam [??]”

    We can also read some words on the ground, such as :
    croyance = belief
    amour = love
    désir = desire
    bien = good
    ailleurs = elsewhere

    I think that I had found something in the first pic of 9 objects… according to me this pic refers to the 9 planets , their vegetation, how and with what composition the planets are created and how our solar system is operated from central planet in pic I.e. jupiter according to me. It also consists of the method to travel to these planets with different symbols. As now I came to know that there’s something like vyonich It’s new for me and I will definitely download the pdf and continue to unlock the manuscript…I think that there’s a committee of our creators outside this earth and they are taking watch on every activity of everyone with the help of these animals, insects and other living beings.. its not necessary that an animal will talk to u ..its possible that they are afraid of selfish humans..it can be possible that with time other animals also evolved into creatures like humans like vampire but they are not showing us just because of fear…and they have ability to change shape as per need…and they are living around us may be in underground cities hidden from us..may be more powerful,more developed,with more advance technologies and maybe they are controlling us in an unknown way…don’t u think so???

    hey everyone. I have taken an interest in the voynich manuscript a long time now as I wonder what type of intricate high quality language it really is. However in this book I think it has something to do with creating the fountain of youth or the ability to use plants to increase our ability to live more than a thousand years if taken in a specific sequence and at certain times
    As you know there are many species of plants. All have different benefits and effects at different times. Example moringa Oleifera is called the miracle tree of the tree of life and have 12 different species only Oleifera according to scientists can be used. This book is supper and may have something to also do with Edgar cayce

    I feel that The Voynich is a vision for an ideal world and a vision for the future. I think a group of like minded people got together to create what their idea of an ideal world would be like. Humanism was based on nature and a mutual respect for life, it was beginning to grow in the 15 th century. The image of the horse with the chrysalis is possibly the idea that by eating chrysalis the horse may gain wings once he emerges, just like the butterfly. The plants that are not identified may be ideas of plant cells combined to form new plants. The blue water with nymphs could be fertility and purity. The green water could be herbal extracts. Very interesting book. I would love to have more information.

    Answering Chandramouli Saha

    Because in those days not everybody knew how to read and write, and not everybody could afford to buy parchment and colors.

    But above all if someone had the money to do so he would not write nonsense cover to cover across botanic, astrology and god knows what else.
    It’s not like now your grab pen and paper and start doodling.

    And a mentally ill person would definitely not acquire that kind of knowledge and wealth in those days, unlike today where the mentally ill is actually running countries.

    This is a fertility manual written by a woman. Although back in the early fourteen hundreds it was illegal for a woman to read or write. The book explains on various kinds of plants, herbs, spices, and predator plants that can be used as medicine during pregnancy, or from falling ill during such tumultuous times.

    Menstruation or period cycles during body changes. From the drawings of what looks like the stars it shows the solstices, equinoxes, and seasons of the year along with the entire yearly cycle. Other drawings show women bathing using the roots of plants.

    Perhaps this is a representation on how to use or mix prepared plants together during their periods or pregnancy cycles before age forty. To put it simply this is nothing more but a medicinal pictograph for a woman who used the name Otto because as I mentioned before, women were barred or gagged from learning on how to read or write during the dark ages.

    Especially during the inquisition where Tomas Torquemada tortured, and killed millions of so called witches in the name of the church. The language is her own. Shorthand to be precise using various kinds of other languages such as Hebrew, Latin, and small examples of Aramaic. The time it took to write this book was probably between four to fifteen years starting from early teenage years and onward.

    The pictures are crudely drawn, which indicates a naïve eye for detail. But the overall effect is meant for just the author’s interpretation when using the manual for such instances for women only.

    The odd looking plants are most likely the authors way of explaining on how to mix certain plant properties together for maximum effect to ease a woman’s pain during menstruation or pregnancy or even illnesses, which would lead to back pain, leg pain, low breast milk, or when to bathe at certain times of the day through out the year.

    It is an allegorical representation of a woman who wanted to be a doctor but couldn’t because of the churches stronghold on women. This brought about another manual from man who used its descriptions, and explanations on how to spot, judge, and even execute possible witches. It was called The Malleus Maleficarum.

    This manual is not some sorcerer’s handbook nor is it from some mysterious Stonehenge druid ancestor or for that matter was it a scientists way of explaining the universe using plants as the reference point. It was just a female doctor’s manual to helping ease to what ails women the most. Growing up, growing older, getting pregnant, staying healthy until old age sets in.

    The rest falls into place once you look at each plant, and star map according to the months it represents in a calendar year along with the solstices, and equinoxes. Because women kept track of such information by listening to their own mothers, and grandmothers while becoming an adult.

    I don’t get the fuss?
    It’s a book about plants and when to plant them, the women illustrated are the plants. A woman is a signature of fertility and birth. the writing is just like the one Carl von Linné did. This work is significantly smaller and less describing and more a guide to planting and use.

    The plant shows the root of the plant, cut in half, so you can see how thick it gets and it shows the younger thinner branches and flowers also cut open.. just some dissection of a plant or whatever you wanna call it..

    Voynich is an attempt to bring syntactical homunculi into our dimension but it can’t be downloaded into as low-dimensional a language as English without a fully functioning pineal gland. If you have a lazy third eye, DMT will help the syntactical machinery of description undergo some sort of instant hyper-dimensional inflation, and then, you cannot tell yourself what it is that you understand, but you will know it.

    Judging by the poor grasp of English and spam content of most of the above comments, not one of you has read very much at all, let along decoded either of these books or the “bible code” – which is nonsense not least because there are several versions of the bible.

    Moti Lal – Jesus did not write the bible, even if he did exist, which is highly debatable. The new testament was written decades after his supposed death, while the old is pretty much pinched from the Tora.
