Scientists have managed to decipher the beginning of the mysterious Voynich manuscript

The Mysterious Voynich Manuscript, created by an unknown author, presumably in the first half of the XV century vexed scientists for many years. This illustrated 240-page Codex written in an unknown language and contains images of previously unknown plants and celestial bodies. Professional cryptographers, including employees of the British and American intelligence services, has long struggled to decipher what is written in the manuscript. And now, it seems, for the first time, scientists were lucky.

Experts from the canadian University of Alberta brought to the task of deciphering the manuscript artificial intelligence. This algorithm was previously tested on the translation of the universal Declaration of human rights, translated into 380 languages, and he demonstrated 97% accuracy of determination of the document language. In the case of manuscript task was significantly more complicated: it uses a cipher that includes changing the order of the letters in the words, and omitting vowels. Artificial intelligence after a careful study of the document came to the conclusion that it was written in Hebrew.

The First sentence of the Voynich Manuscript has already been translated, and it reads as follows: "She gave advice to the priest, the head of the house, me and my people." The text also frequently encountered the word "farmer", "light", "air" and "fire." Canadian experts agreed that to further the work efforts of only one artificial intelligence will not be enough. Will need the help of Hebrew scholars, professional cryptographers, and experienced historians. Earlier work on the manuscript was involved the CIA and the NSA, but they failed to unravel its mystery.

The Voynich Manuscript includes six large sections: Botanical, astronomical, biological, cosmological, pharmaceutical, and prescription. It was named in honor of the dealer Wilfried Voynich, who acquired it in 1912. At the moment it is in the library of rare books Beinecke Yale University. Some scientists are extremely skeptical about the manuscript and think that it's just someone's clever hoax. According to the results of radiocarbon Dating it was established that the manuscript was written between 1404 and 1438 years in the early Renaissance.

There is a key to cipher the Voynich manuscript. The key to the cipher manuscript placed in the manuscript. It is placed throughout the text. Part of the key hints is placed on the sheet 14. With her help was able to translate a few dozen words that are completely relevant to the theme sections. The Voynich manuscript is not written with letters. It is written in signs. Characters replace the letters of the alphabet one of the ancient language. Moreover, in the text there are 2 levels of encryption. I figured out the key by which the first section could read the following words: hemp, wearing hemp; food, food (sheet 20 at the numbering on the Internet); to clean (gut), knowledge, perhaps the desire, to drink, sweet beverage (nectar), maturation (maturity), to consider, to believe (sheet 107); to drink; six; flourishing; increasing; intense; peas; sweet drink, nectar, etc. Is just the short words, 2-3 sign. To translate words with more than 2-3 characters requires knowledge of this ancient language. The fact that some symbols represent two letters. In the end, the word consisting of three characters can fit up to six letters. Three letters are superfluous. In the end, you need six characters to define the semantic word of three letters. Of course, without knowledge of this language make it very difficult even with a dictionary. If you are interested, I am ready to send more detailed information, including scans of pages showing the translated words. And most important. In the manuscript there is information about "the Holy Grail". Nikolai.
