Captain’s Blog 5/11/2022:
The Voynich Manuscript has both Easter Egg’s and Rabbit Holes. Easter Egg’s are cleverly disguised words that could mean two different things in either English are a Celtic language. If the word is a plant or an animal it is an Easter Egg that tells you a story about the true meaning of the page. A rabbit hole usually looks like an Easter Egg but will take you out of Germanic/Celtic/Greek folklore and you will wind up in the totally wrong location. The following are the Easter Eggs found in Folio 30.
Easter Egg #1: Cicuta Virosa the Northern Water Hemlock
The Northern Water Hemlock was a plant used in medieval times by witches and sorcerers to ruin male sexual urges. This plant is pure poison and will cause death by respiratory failure. Which is how it got the name “Mark of Cain.” Thought to be capable of astral travel by loosening the body from the soul. The name comes from Greek etymology meaning to spin/whirl because it causes great dizziness. There is only one location outside the Northern hemisphere where the Hemlock grow and that is in the streams off the coast of Swaziland, Africa.
Easter Egg #2: Shingle Oak Tree
The Shingle Oak Tree grows in the Midwest of America around the Chicago/Philadelphia regions in which the Voynich Manuscript calls it the boarders of the known world.
Throughout the major cultures of Europe people have held the oak tree in high esteem. To the Greeks, Romans, Celts, Slavs and Teutonic tribes the oak was foremost amongst venerated trees. In each case associated with the supreme god in their pantheon, oak being sacred to Zeus, Jupiter, Dagda, Perun and Thor, respectively. Each of these gods also had dominion over rain, thunder and lightning. It is no coincidence that oak trees are more prone to lightning strikes than many other trees. This is because of the tree’s high water content and the fact that they are frequently the tallest living things in the landscape.
The Druids frequently worshipped and practised their rites in oak groves. The word Druid may derive from a Celtic word meaning “knower of the oak tree”. The Gaelic word for oak is darach and remains in place names such as Glac Daraich (oak hollow/small valley) in Glen Affric.
Ancient kings presented themselves as the personifications of these gods. They took on the responsibility not only for success in battle but also the fertility of the land, which relied on rainfall. They wore crowns of oak leaves, as a symbol of the god they represented as kings on Earth. Similarly, successful Roman commanders were presented with crowns of oak leaves during their victory parades. Oak leaves have continued as decorative icons of military prowess to the present day. Oak leaves’ connection with rainfall also survived in more recent folklore.
Notes: The Great Circle
In previous posts we went over the Great Circle but it is the very essence of the Voynich Manuscript. The Great Circle – The sailors Rhumb Line is: A rhumb line is a curve that crosses each meridian at the same angle. This curve is also referred to as a loxodrome (from the Greek loxos, slanted, and drome, path). Although a great circle is a shortest path, it is difficult to navigate because your bearing (or azimuth) continuously changes as you proceed.
To fix the location to Folio 30r-30v the authors created a rhumb line using the points between the Shingle Oak Tree of North America and the Swaziland, African Cicuta Virosa. The approximate location is South of Madagascar 36°E.
Easter Egg #3: Surveyors Meander
In legal surveying terms a meander is the deepest part of a channel. Surveyors have in the past used a water channels meander as a property line. In 1890 there was a major court case between Washington and Oregon in the Columbia River. The dispute was the Columbia River’s meander and who owned what part of the Columbia River. The final verdict from the court was that the court can not control the ever changing paths created by God.
The Voynich uses the term meander to describe the deepest part of the ocean in the Madagascar channel. These water’s have a multitude of eddies, spinning, splashing, rains upon rains, and nearly impossible to sail through. The only way up is is to fix dead center of the meander (which shifts and moves.) The right side of the boat called the leeward side is weak. To move up the channel the boat has to move to the left of buoys set up by the authors of the Voynich. The authors drew the buoys as the flowers on the page. It is also important to note that there are 9 leaves. This citation calculates the knots in the Madagascar current 9.3 km per hour – the fastest flowing channel in the world.
Easter Egg #4: Parsons Bird
Just for confirmation of the location, the authors of the Voynich Manuscript put in another Easter Egg of the Parsons Bird and reference the borders of the known world. As we have discussed before the Catalan Atlas is the Key to the Voynich Manuscript. Near the 36°E mark of the boarders of the Catalan Atlas guess what’s chill’n out. That’s right a parson bird. The Parsons Bird lives in the Auckland Islands of New Zealand approx. 30° S.
So based on all the Easter Eggs the geolocation of Folio 30r-30v is: 30°S x 36°E
Folio 30r-30v Translation:
30r: Containerize by means of currents, greatly inferior way, the leeward side canonical hour is true. The way is awe inspiring. Passing through prepare two radius’ of Earth. The orifice plates path “true value citation” area. Pass through measurement is level ground, agrees by provoking a meander drift. Enter the hour makes it valueless inactive rotation. Rainy, moves rapidly, the descending observation travels vertically. Stake the level area, confirm. You go. There is wind! The authors most important observation is spaced numerous a more misdirected secant arc. The yearly force is fixed to descend.
Rossby waves. You go. A wiry place made arable rhumb passing through the new days rising sun. Soot rumbles. Join the acute time natural turn to the entire. Wind at a distance out a rainy rotation. Confirm outer weave, dams the whole road. A barrier orifice plate passing through an orifice plate passing through the rhumb line oak tree (bearing tree.) Slow moving. Successive measurement enginous borders the known world. The borders of the known world measurement is a means of escape. Fortified the wind will be going because the citation is attended by means of the circumference velocity of an orifice plate knots.
The walls rhumb arrow is true. Rotationally that seesaws descending lines in the water. The course barrier descend is powerful splashes. The Value is Zero sequence descending measurement fixed to the attention of time measurement. Fixed as if the measurement outward grids the wall blindness. It is a separate measurement. The wind is expressed by an unsupported barrier measurement. The sun conceals so that it will be able to yield. Per the radius of Earth, in order to actively drive out the projecting end of the radius, succeeding the eve of the period of time, the currents die. The barrier of the winds way is an orifice plate, that is a rivalry. You will elute the measurements journey. The authors beginning measurement is approximate.
