[ExI] Voynich translated

A modern counterpart to the Voynich Manuscript would be "Codex
Serafinianus" written by Luigi Serafini (who was born exactly one day after
me). It's filled with weird surrealistic color drawings and a beautiful
script written in a strange alphabet that nobody can translate. It's easy
to jump to the conclusion that the script could explain the weird drawings
if only somebody could translate it. But Serafini has admitted there is
nothing to translate, the script has no meaning, he says he wanted to
reproduce the feeling young children have when they open a book and know it
has meaning but can't read yet. I wonder if the author of Voynich was doing
the same thing as Serafini except not being as honest about it because in
the 15'th century a mysterious book like Voynich would command a high price.
