A bizarre documentary has revealed the origins of the oldest known manuscript in the world.
Read moreA “bizarre” documentary has unearthed the origins and importance of the Voynich Manuscript, a 17th century manuscript that’s believed to be the oldest written language in the universe.
The movie, titled Voynics’ Story, premiered on the Recode Media Network on Wednesday, November 13.
The film explores the origins, writing and significance of the text.
“The Voynicards Story is a story about our past, a story of the past, and about the past,” executive producer Scott Zelman told Recode in an interview.
“And we want to tell that story in a way that doesn’t sound like it’s just an old book.”
The documentary features interviews with scientists, authors and scholars, including Stephen Hawking, the father of the internet, who says the Voynicards story was written about a hundred years ago.
It also features an episode from a BBC radio documentary about the Voynos Voynica, a 15th century text written by a German scientist who also became an astronomer and a mathematician.
“I’m fascinated by the Voynesis, but I think there’s a real need for more people to be engaged with this text and understand the history of the language,” Hawking said in an episode of Recode’s Radio Times podcast.
“Because it’s so much more than a collection of letters and numbers, which are a little bit dated,” he said.
“It’s really about a language and the language is something that is so unique that I think it needs to be understood.”
The Voynsis was originally written down by German mathematician and astronomer Wolfgang Otto in 1614, but was later lost and lost to history.
It’s thought to be written in a language called Romani.
Zelman said the story of how the text was written down was originally lost, and that the first copies were only made to commemorate the birthday of the 16th century Italian mathematician Galileo Galilei.
“We found a lot of information about the early years of the manuscript, the printing process and the discovery of the original paper,” he explained.
“So we wanted to understand the writing process of the writing that’s happening now.
And I think that it’s a really fascinating story.”
The film also features interviews from the Italian scientist Gianluigi Guastoni, who is known for his work on how to make mirrors in his lab, and the astronomer Giovanni Battista Scavola.
“When you see the way the book was laid out, it’s very unusual,” Zelman said.
“It’s so weird because of its shape.
It is not a book, but it is a book.
But there is nothing unusual about it.”
In a recent interview with Recode, Scavolas said the book is more than just a book and it is one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century.
“One of the things that has really fascinated me about the book and about this discovery, which is the discovery that the Voynsia is written in this Romani language, is that the Romani alphabet is a very ancient and very ancient alphabet, that we don’t have words for, and yet we are able to understand a word for that word,” Scavoli said.
The documentary also examines the “bubbly” language of the Romans, which has a similar alphabet to Latin, and how it’s been a key to the formation of languages like Greek and Arabic.
The film will be released on November 17.
