I can't believe the Voynich is still a "thing". It's been well established that the content is gibberish, and it was produced during the time when gibberish books of "mystical natural sciences" were rather commonplace. Nobles bought these manuscripts knowing they were phonies, but there was some cachet to having one in your library.

The only thing "mysterious" about the Voynich is why anybody still thinks it is interesting as anything more than a rather fine example of a very odd fad.
