Check out this page. Perhaps Zodiac was aware of some of these...

That Oak Island case is tied in with a lot of dubious Templar lore. The Voynich Manuscript was one of the inspirations for H.P. Lovecraft's infamous literary device, the Necronomicon.

That's a pretty neat page, Tom. Thanks for linking it.

Here's an interesting article on a theory regarding the construction of the Voynich:


Edward Kelley would make sense. He and John Dee were responsible for the Enochian system of magick so popular with today's occultniks.

As far as comparisons to the Zodiac ciphers I find Poe's the closest.The second one in particular is most interesting, a Polyalphabetic substitution with apparent deliberate misspellings,structured to gaurd against frequency analysis.

The problem with most of the cipher challenges (Voynich, for example) on the attached page, Tom, is that the language into which the code is to be translated is not specified. In Dorabella, we might be getting somewhere if Wallace Penny had gotten the cipher!

You want me to get grey hair trying to figure all these out, don't you?
