unknown writing system

The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum from the books provides a carbon-date to some time in the early 15th century (1404–1438), possibly composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased the object in 1912.

Ymir

Since the last episode that Ymir started to get a bit shady. Exactly as in “you are clearly hiding something from us”. All of that conversation between her and Christa makes us wonder. In the first half of this episode, my questions just began rising

So urtgard castle is clearly and old af castle that was there even before the walls. They say those goods were probably part of some contraband ring, but we all know better. What gives it way is the fact that they have some unknown writing system labelling everything. That wine must be really old. the writing that they can’t read is the writing used before the walls were built. Before the titans attacked.

Not even Reiner can read it. we don’t know exactly his age. He claims to be a teenager, but since he is a titan and titans are pretty much immortal if you leave them be, we can question his age. All we know was that he was born after the walls.

Ymir is clearly hiding something. How old is she? For her to be able to read what the can label said, she must the hella old, before the walls old.

Later, when they find themselves trapped on he top of the castle, surrounded by titans, our questions and doubts are answered

I have to admit that in the beginning, she wasn’t the caracter the I sympathised the most, but she grew on me. She might seem cold, but that is perhaps because she has seen too much. She has lived for so long and experienced so much that she can be “immune” to the more mundane things. What made me like her was how much she cared for Christa. She was there to protect her. She wanted her to be safe at the military police. She didn’t want her to waste her life in a lost battle.

When cornered, when she realised that they were about to die if she didn’t do anything, that CHRISTA was about to die due to her inactivity, she revealed her biggest and most well kept secret

Is it wrong that while watching this I remembered the sailor moon type of transformations?

And thus the dancing titan was introduced. The thing is, that in this episode we had already seen this titan, we just didn’t know it’s identity

If you don’t remember where this image came from, it was taken during reindeer’s flashback. So what we can deduce is that, first Ymir is a titan. Second, she is old (how old though?). Third, and Reiner will not be happy about this, Ymir killed his friend, even though that made him the soldier he is today.

boi… the plot thickens…

The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum in the book pages has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404–1438), and may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance.The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912.

The pages of the codex are vellum. Some of the pages are missing, but about 240 remain. The text is written from left to right, and most of the pages have illustrations or diagrams.

The Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British code breakers from both World War I and World War II.No one has yet succeeded in deciphering the text, and it has become a famous case in the history of cryptography.

The Voynich manuscript was donated by Hans P. Kraus to Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library in 1969, where it is cataloged under call number MS 408.
