I take awhile here to get to the point, but I am really addressing the Voynich Manuscript...
When I was young I took a liking to a book about codes and ciphers at the library. I believe the book was called the First Book of Codes and Ciphers. I will have to check again on the title. It was kind of an interest or hobby that stuck with me. Over the years, I've collected codes from all kinds of books. Freemasonry, Rosicrucian and other codes have been a pastime. As a previous computer operator, I had the boring job of tape backups for a major U.S. manufacturer. I used to create codes on a daily basis just for my amusement. I felt one could construct cryptography from calculus, differential equations, imaginary numbers, geometry or statistics. At that time, I was trying to figure out a way to write several layers of messages on top of each other. I was working on 3 layers. Could it be done? Later in 2005, I took an obsession to the Voynich Manuscript. I consider it one of John Dee's finest scripts. You can check the blogs and forums on line, but no one has really mentioned that the cryptography seems to have some close cousins found in the code in the book, Hidden Codes & Grand Designs by Pierre Berloquin. I've found it similar to the cipher found in the Mary Queen of Scotts. It is almost a sure sign it comes from the same period of time. There is a similarity to the Duke of Montmorency code as well. Close examination shows the number characters 4, 8 and 9 are used in all 3 sets of codes. I lost most of the fascination for the Voynich Manuscript as I examined the Enochian language more closely. The Voynich Manuscript secret is probably known by British intelligence. After all, Dee worked for the queen. Just like the Kryptos Sculpture is known by the U.S., Voynich should be no secret to England.
Another interesting book is Cracking Codes & Cryptograms For Dummies. In the Dummies book, Masonic ciphers are listed as well as ideas about how to solve them. Some may be based on other languages. If the message is written in old English, middle English, or English written with Hebrew letters adds to the complexity of breaking the code. Do some reading on the web and you will find the Russian one-time pad as perfectly unbreakable if you follow the rules. If you use a computer to generate random numbers it may be breakable by the top code breakers of the country. They probably are aware of random number generators of most computers. If you are generating your own one-time code numbers you can mix a few of your own favorite numbers in with a set of computer generated and this will keep the top code breakers stumped. I'd never use PGE by some software companies to hide a message; most software companies probably give the government a back door to their software. There really is no privacy unless you take privacy into your own hands. Snowden's disclosure has made a lot of people on edge about the U.S. government's secret spying on its citizens. Most recently, I came to the conclusion that it could be a cipher from a high ranking Mason, it is related to the Mary Queen of Scotts or it is related to the language of the Kaballah.
