It appears to me that all they tried to do was determine if it was possible to reproduce the complex statistical features in the document. Reading his conclusion, im not exactly sure how he derived the title for the article as it is a pretty big jump to claim that the document is gibberish simply because they can reproduce some statistical features. I think he was disappointed with the outcome and decided to spice it up a bit..especially after reading the bit about how this could help alzhimer's research. lol

I thought I remembered Terence discussing the manuscript in one of his lectures saying he believed it was basically a 'manual' focusing on the process of dying..though I can't say I'm positive about this..

Either way, I did a bit of searching and found this:
An extended discussion of the Voynich Manuscript may be found in the tape of the same name by Terence McKenna. I'm not sure who is currently publishing this particular McKenna tape but probably one of: Dolphin Tapes, POB 71, Big Sur, CA 93920 Sounds True, 1825 Pearl St., Boulder, CO 80302 Sound Photosynthesis, POB 2111, Mill Valley, CA 94942

The Spring 1988 issue of Gnosis magazine contained an article by McKenna giving some background of the Voynich Manuscipt and attempts to decipher it, and reviewing Leo Levitov's "Solution of the Voynich Manuscript" (published in 1987 by Aegean Park Press, POB 2837 Laguna Hills, CA 92654). Levitov's thesis is that the manuscript is the only surviving primary document of the Cathar faith (exterminated on the orders of the Pope in the Albigensian Crusade in the 1230s) and that it is in fact not encrypted material but rather is a highly polyglot form of Medieval Flemish with a large number of Old French and Old High German loan words, written in a special script. http://rec-puzzles.org/sol.pl/cryptology/Voynich
