So much going on the the TUCKER STEM team lab. We published our book on the Voynich Manuscript which includes 10% of the VM translations and the Dictionary of the language in it. I feel free know to openly talk about our research and findings without reservation now that our work is copyrighted. © © © ツ
One of my favorite subjects to study and the focus of my thesis at the University was symbology in art and how artists invoke audiences to feel emotional connections using cultural symbols. The Voynich Manuscript cleverly hides its true symbology in between the lines. One of the greatest accomplishments of the Viking culture is its secrecy in map making. In going over the symbols and maps of the VM it uses this system of secrecy and map making. It hides truth in myth, it hides math in nature and it hides language in illusion.
The most obvious Viking symbology is the compass. The Rose Compass was first used in the Catalan Atlas (The Rosetta Stone of the VM) in 1375, it than appears several times in the VM but the most obvious rose compass is folio 7r. Folio 7r is a map of the Canary Current and bearings to the prime meridian El Hierro Island.
In Folio 6v the symbology cleverly hides the Viking Sunstone and the Viking Ægishjálmr. Today, people use these Viking symbols as if one needs to tattoo it on their forehead for protection. I see this and I just start laughing, because the Vikings where so clever at hiding things even those that love their culture don’t actual understand its “magic.” No Viking has ever been recorded as tattooing symbols on their face – ever. Maybe once, but once does not a culture make. The true meaning of Ægishjálmr that I have come to understand it is those that can learn the meaning the Ægishjálmr and hold it in the mind will be protected by knowledge. In the following slide show the first image (VM Folio 6v) is the Ægishjálmr with flowers of the Viking Sunstone (we will talk about the Viking Sunstone in a blog to come.) The second photo is the Star Bi Compass used 7,000 years ago in Northern Europe for Navigation. The Third photo is the Ægishjálmr and its translation in a 16th century manuscript.
There is a great deal more symbolism in the VM that includes, sailor mythology, Greek Mythology, Scottish Folklore etc. Tune into the blog for more conversations on how the VM cleverly hid truths within myths and why even today they are easy to miss. We go into grave detail on the symbols in our book “The lost language of Braveheart and Robert de Bruce, King of Scots.”
For more information on the language in the VM you can find it in the “Galwegian Middle-English Dictionary.”
