As of late, I notice a slight tendency to get bored with the “ugly duckling” alone, and also some annoyance with the current state of affairs of “Voynichism”.
As much as I value the VMS as a hub for further research, the more I get drawn to other topics.
A while ago I found out for myself that the order of things needs to be reverted if one aspires to do serious research as an amateur. One cannot simply pick a feature, then compare everything else to it. No, it is hard work: One needs to look at everything else first, and then compare the feature of interest to your set of learnings.
Simple as that.
The world is, and always was full of interesting things. No one ever believed it was a disc.
