  1. Thank you, that's very kind. I was reading the Novum Organum a week ago and was just in awe of how accurately and delicately he criticized the old ways of acquiring knowledge, helping to kickstart the Scientific Revolution and so on. When I heard that he might've written the works of Shakespeare, I didn't believe that someone could have such a brilliant mind both for literature and for the sciences or philosophy of science, and had the time to do it all, while still being a politician or noblemam. This would make him the single most cited author of all time in the Humanities, right? Anyways, I have some questions, where would it be more adequate for me to post it? I'm using mobile, so I'm having a hard time here.

  2. As mentioned, the ‘Adventurer setting forth’ in the Sonnets dedication is an obvious reference to a coloniser, so I took a look at this: https://archive.org/details/generallhistori00conggoog/page/n407/mode/1up and sure enough there are 2pages at the front by someone who desires to stay concealed and it ends with a TT. We know FB was one of the Virginia Company ‘Adventurers’, yet his name is mentioned nowhere, so I think studying this (which appears to contain code and starts with the word Stay (!) which also forms St) and perhaps things in the rest of this book may reveal something.

  3. The look on Stanley Wells face when confronted with absurdity is priceless, and its full circle as he is a master of obfuscation while abusing his position as an "expert Shakespearean" by writing seemingly knowledgeable history that is overwhelmingly flawed and why the Authorship fires can't be put out by Wells and his ilk. And I agree Kate, there was pointless profanity in the mockumentary. She was a bit more rude than Sasha Cohen's delightful put on character Ali G. Meanwhile I just found this quote in a book I'm reading about JFK : "Mary's Mosaic : The CIA conspiracy to murder JFK, Mary Pinchot Meyer and their Vision for World Peace." by Peter Janney, that parallels the Shakespeare Authorship issue (and certainly some Shakespeare Tragedies too!) and how it persists with gatekeepers of the Shakespeare Industrial Complex like Stanley Wells : "For the Greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the lie---deliberate, contrived and dishonest,--but the Myth--persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic." JFK, Yale University, June 11, 1962

  4. Am I the only one who is surprised that Sir Stanley and the Birthplace Trust were happy to play along with this triumph of dumbing down? What media tarts! First impression: very Phython-esque in its shocking, blasphemous trashing of history and culture, and on first take, very funny (and tremendously well researched and resourced in terms of archival material). Obviously, the aim is to elicit cheap laughs at the expense of great art. And yet, I can't shake this sense of guilt for having laughed at such stupidity. The more I think about this program (thank you, Lawrence) the more worried I become. I fear that beneath the superficial comedy there is an unfortunate fact: to the vast majority of people, the Shakespeare plays mean nothing in terms of their daily lives. Or, we could see it from a more positive perspective. "Cunk on Shakespeare" could be regarded as the "death of Shaxper". The only thing that can make "Shakespeare" more relevant to the average person is the public exposure of the authorship lie and the revealing of the true spirit and achievements of Sir Francis Bacon.

  5. I want to personally apologize for not allowing access for so long. A couple months ago we did have an issue and we had to secure the membership immediately. I thought I set it up so we would be notified when someone new signed up. But that did not happen. I went in the Membership Admin a few days ago and discovered maybe a dozen new valid seekers had signed up and they were missed. I allowed all but one obvious SPAM email address, all while being horrified these visitors might never return. I'd fire myself, but I can't really do that! I did learn my lesson and will check daily for new membership requests. Thank you for reading content while being very patient and thank you for participating after being ignored.

  7. Francis Bacon's Hamlet - A Tudor Family Tragedy The Tragedy of Hamlet shadows the most explosive and sensational secrets of the Elizabethan reign in which the not so Virgin Queen Elizabeth was secretly married to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester with whom she had two concealed royal princes Francis Tudor Bacon and Robert Tudor Devereux. It tells the tale of its author a disinherited royal prince Francis Tudor Bacon in the shape of Hamlet who is denied his rightful kingship by his mother Queen Elizabeth and the exhaustion and death of the royal Tudor dynasty. Behind its dramatis personae lies the leading figures of the Elizabethan period: Francis Bacon Tudor concealed Prince of Wales (Prince Hamlet), Queen Elizabeth Tudor (Queen Gertrude) and her secret husband Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (King Claudius), Robert Tudor Devereux, the second Earl of Essex (Laertes), Sir Nicholas Bacon (the Ghost of Old Hamlet) and Sir William Cecil (Polonius). It is a story of a lustful Queen Elizabeth and the notorious poisoner and murderer Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester and the strange death possibly through poisoning by Leicester of Sir Nicholas Bacon. It is a play that is all about revenge, murder and death, with poisonings of Old Hamlet, King Claudius, Queen Gertrude, Laertes and Hamlet himself, and by other means, the deaths of Polonius, Ophelia, and the two state spies, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Interspersed throughout the whole of the dissertation of the telling of this royal Tudor tragedy are lines, sentences and passages identical in thought and similar in expression, providing resemblances, correspondences and parallels from more than thirty of Bacon’s writings and works, among them: unpublished manuscripts, private letters and speeches; various essays including Of Revenge and Of Death, the two central themes of the play; as well as An Inquiry Concerning the Ways of Death and The History of Life and Death; short occasional pieces Physiological Remains and Short Notes for Civil Conversation; political works A Brief Discourse Touching the Happy Union of the Kingdom of England and Scotland and The Case of the Post-Nati of Scotland as well as the state sanctioned A Declaration of the Practices and Treasons of the Earl of Essex; his major philosophical and scientific treatises The Advancement of Learning, The Wisdom of the Ancients, Novum Organum, De Augmentis Scientiarum and Sylva Sylvarum; and several of his obscure or relatively unknown and unread legal treatises A Discourse upon the Commission of Bridewell, The Argument in Lowe’s Case of Tenures, The Charge of Owen Indicted for High Treason, The Reading Upon the Statues of Uses, The Maxims of the Common Law and The Ordinances made by Lord Chancellor Bacon in Chancery. This and other evidence emphatically demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt Francis Bacon’s authorship of the earliest and greatest Shakespeare Tudor Tragedy in the history of world literature. #FrancisBacon #Shakespeare #Hamlet #Elizabeth #Rosicrucians #Freemasonry #RoyalBirth #RobertDudley #RobertDevereux

  11. Hi Christie. Thank you for your impressive post. I liked what you said about Constance: To attack Constance Pott because ....? of her name? her upbringing? seems weak (and ad hominem). It seems to assume, disrespectfully, she did not do her own research before making up her own mind and taking a position. Subjectively, I feel you are right. As with Mrs Pott, so with Francis Bacon: an exceptional education in childhood surely equips one with the means and ability to penetrate and open important problems which affect Humanity. It does not necessarily brainwash a child into patterns of thinking they can never escape. Codswallop!

  12. Enlightenment A certain man claimed to be God and was brought before the Caliph, who said to him, "Last year someone here claimed to be a prophet and he was put to death!" The man replied, "It was well that you did so, for I did not send him. (9th century joke) A certain man claimed to be a prophet and was brought before the Sultan, who said to him, "I bear witness that you are a stupid prophet!" The man replied, "That is why I have only been sent to people like you”. (9th century joke) (“The Sufis”, Idries Shah, 1964) Inspired laughter and a limitless capacity to love and feel compassion for all sentient beings, not to mention the joy of experiencing life for the first time as a timeless, ever-unfolding synthesis of meanings all pointing to the ultimate source of everything… Nirvana, or the Albedo if you prefer, can only be embodied, not shared experientially. I see where you are coming from, CJ. We like "young Will" are not the authors of our own lines. To use a bathroom metaphor, our contitioning from birth is like a plug preventing the dirty bathwater we call reality from draining so the bath can be filled with clean water. De-conditioning by whatever means can only work if genius (Spirit) and caritas (Soul) are already entwined and ready to conceive the rarest of births. “In my world there is only the fun that comes from dabbling in what cannot possibly inform me.” You can never be assailed from such a lofty position. Meanwhile, as a Buddha in the making, you might choose to target a plethora of more harmful activities than an intelligent discussion about a man who embodied the enlightenment you seek, i.e. the SirBacon B’Hive forums.

  13. Hi Lari. Your questions are most welcome and show you have already acquired some familiarity with the historical territory and circumstances of Sir Francis Bacon's life. The good thing is that all your questions have already been addressed in a little book called: FRANCIS BACON - LAST OF THE TUDORS by Amelie Deventer von Kunow, translated and published in the early 1920s. It is all the more interesting because Madame von Kunow wasn't a 'Baconian' when she began her research, which is meticulous. If you can spare the time I'm sure you will be enriched by it. https://sirbacon.org/vonkunow.html

  15. I thought it best to add this to what has already been said regarding the circular emblem from New Atlantis: Firstly, the same inner scene was printed on the front title page of the first Geneva bible New Testament. (see GEN_1) Secondly, I found an even earlier emblem as the frontispiece of a book, I forget the name, but will find it later. (see EARLIER_1) You will see that it is identical to the one shown on New Atlantis, and predates it by many years, which means Bacon or Rawley had no hand in the design. I think the emblem has certain moot points which Bacon/Rawley thought usable for their own ends. The main logo of Time revealing Truth no doubt being the main thing. There is also an link between the figure of Time with his scythe, and the front title page of Billingsly's translation of Euclid. But that's another story. I offer the letters R S from New Atlantis and the much earlier print, so a comparison might be made. Notice how deteriorated the Bacon version seems. EARLIER_1 (in the book) Source: Of prayer and meditation. Luis de Granada. Published 1596. GEN_1 (Geneva New Testament title page) From New Atlantis EARLIER_1 (source forthcoming)

  18. The Bacon portrait of him sitting is one of the first I considered years ago when I was looking at the composition of these things. It has very similar things that I have shown are being used in the Droeshout portrait. There's a circle centered on the tip of the finger near the quill end that goes through Bacon's eye and the suggestion of an arc in the material. There's another circle centered on the medallion he's wearing which goes through the arc of buttons, through his mouth and the tip of his thumb on the book. There's a third centered on his wrist at the cuff which goes through the buttons, the tip of the nose and the center of the timepiece. I drew the horizontal and the vertical. From the finial to the center of the large circle is a 30 degree angle. Two of the circles intersect with that line. I see this as a possible suggestion of interesting great circles that intersect the galactic plane (milky way). The image also established Bacon as being in the Platonic tradition. Not the thrice great Hermes, but the Thrice great Plato. This why we keep getting stories of mythical islands which "sink". Rembrandt, let's not forget, was heavy on portraying disguised heretical themes. The Storm of the Sea of Galilea is thought to be a reference to the tumult that occurred in the Renaissance which was starting to upset the entrenched Christian Church of Rome with the esoteric revival of Ficino, Bruno and other who would be hugely influential to Rosicrucianism in Germany.

  19. Regarding "Resuscitatio", here are the slides that I had prepared for the video, but that I have not used. This is not by accident if Rawley entitled his Book "Resuscitatio", if he says that he is "The First and the Last" Chaplain of Francis Bacon, and if the Book was printed neer the "Mitre Cavern" Those are references to the Christ. Let's change PEACES by PISCIS ! Piscis is a reference to the Christ and to the Vesica Piscis. Here is something interesting with the 1661 (2nd) Edition Notice that the letters P and S of Piscis add to 33 = BACON. And the letters W and S of WORKS are the initials of William Shakespeare.

  21. So it seems that conservative "Bacon scholars" have avoided studying Francis Bacon's personal notebook written in his own handwriting because it contains hundreds of phrases in multiple languages which also appear in Shakespeare's plays and elsewhere in his writings. Both the Bacon-Shakespeare Manuscript and the Promus are incontrovertible primary source evidence for Bacon's authorship of the plays attributed to William Shakespeare. These two priceless documents, which have somehow managed to evade Francis Bacon's own tight control over his literary estate and all the vicissitudes of the last four centuries, are so significant that if their existence became general knowledge it could undermine the very foundations of traditional "Shakespearean" scholarship. At least Stewart and Knight have transcribed the Promus verbatim.

  23. Thanks for your input but it seems you may not have read the attached article in the link? By August 5, 1621, William Alexander was accepted as the new owner/adventurer of Nova Scotia, by King James. I also wonder if you are perhaps underestimating my critical thinking skills. I purposefully put distance between the article and the fact it was from an Oak Island site, I also looked into the guy who was writing this and watched a video of his to get a feel for him. He surprised me. He’s definitely got a dodgy taste in book cover design but seems to be an obsessive researcher. Of course, in other research I’ve come across many of the things you say above, but I think there’s a definite connection with Bacon and ‘the Great Work’ he was undertaking. This was something else I read and links him to colonisation way before 1625. http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/alexander_william_1577_1640_1E.html and this was something else I screenshotted on Friday, confirming the date of the charter 1621

  28. No one minds at all! This is great info. It’s funny because when I was writing that post I distinctly recall that I wanted to use the word beautiful (as opposed to magnificent etc) and now you say Cosmati means beautiful! So I ended it ( before adding a bit more) with “but it’s 😍 beautiful.” What I like about group discussions and forums (although this is the only one I’ve been a member of for years) is that you can share something, and that causes someone else to research it and find something else and then you can go off on tangents (like suddenly thinking of the pyramids). It’s like we are all neurons and the synapses are firing between us all, leading to new pathways and discoveries.

  29. The Secret Pre-History of Hamlet Bound Up With Other Secrets of the Elizabethan Reign It appears from the above that a version of Hamlet had already been written by 1584-5 and performed in some or all of the following countries England, the Low Countries, Germany and Denmark, sometime before during and after 1585. However according to another source, the first version of the Shakespeare play Hamlet, was written several years before in c.1580-1. The secret history of the earliest version of the Shakespeare Hamlet, also has a secret pre-history, one bound up in some of the greatest secrets of the Elizabethan reign. #FrancisBacon #Shakespeare #Hamlet #Elizabeth #Rosicrucians #Freemasonry #RoyalBirth #RobertDudley #RobertDevereux #Robert Greene #Thomas Nashe

  30. Hi Kate You wrote: "What immediately springs to mind is the floor of Westminster Abbey by the Altar called the Cosmati Pavement, which we’ve spoken about before." I searched the Forums and the main SirBacon site looking for anything on the cosmatesque pavement in Westminster Abbey without success. I hope no one minds if I post some more details on this fascinating subject. There is a tenuous link between Sir Francis Bacon and the Westminster pavement, which he would surely have been familiar with. When James I was crowned in the exact centre of the mosaic (see video) the pavement was over 300 years old. Then there is this line from The Merchant of Venice, Act 1, Sc. 1, which (just maybe) was inspired by the "finest example of a Cosmati floor in Northern Europe". "Look how the floor of heaven Is thick inlaid with patens of bright gold. There’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st But in his motion like an angel sings..."

  31. From the Wiki you posted: The castle itself was rebuilt from 1574 to 1585, with the separated buildings of Krogen being extended to three coherent wings. The north wing was equipped with chambers for the king, queen and her ladies-in-waiting as well as for the chancellery. In the south wing, the medieval building in the southeast corner was refitted as a modern chapel with the vaulted windows facing the chapel being retained. Frederick was a keen patron of theatre and players performed at the castle when he held court there in 1579.[3] Maybe they played Hamlet in 1579? 😉

  35. The Date of Hamlet & William Shakspere in Stratford With one eye on the authorship issue modern orthodox scholars do not dare venture a date further back than the second half of the 1580s simply because William Shakspere was still residing in or had scarcely left Stratford (Stratfordians put his departure at between 1585-87 for which there is no evidence whatsoever) in order to maintain their fictitious narratives that he was the author of the Shakespeare works, including the greatest of them all, Hamlet. #FrancisBacon #Shakespeare #Hamlet #Elizabeth #Rosicrucians #Freemasonry #RoyalBirth #RobertDudley #RobertDevereux #Robert Greene #Thomas Nashe

We turn on the lights and get used to it. Cunk may have created more interest in Shakespeare than she turned away. What made me laugh so hard was that this is the same dialog I have with my family, friends, loved ones, everyone who is not a Baconian or has a clue about Shakespeare I have ever talked to about it. The crazy looks, the weird analogies, the ridiculous questions, she is my audience when I talk about Bacon writing Shakespeare. Granted, I live with "common" folk. 😉 I did wonder how people in the UK would take her...she acts like a crude Yankee but speaks British. "I'd rung the police..."

  41. The Orthodox Dating of Hamlet The date modern editors of Hamlet have generally settled upon for the date the play was written is around 1600. This is the date given in The Oxford Shakespeare The Complete Works (2005) by its editors by Professor Stanley Wells, Honorary President of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust seen as the foremost living expert on Shakespeare and Professor Gary Taylor, Fellow of the Folger Shakespeare Library ‘It is our belief that Shakespeare wrote Hamlet about 1600’. It was a view shared by Professor Bate, a Fellow of the British Academy and the Royal Society of Literature knighted in 2015 and Professor Eric Rasmussen the editors of Royal Shakespeare Company edition of William Shakespeare Complete Works (2007), ‘DATE; 1600?’ #FrancisBacon #Shakespeare #Hamlet #Elizabeth #Rosicrucians #Freemasonry #RoyalBirth #RobertDudley #RobertDevereux

  43. Hi R.C. Welcome to the SirBacon B'Hive forum. Your assertions, though unsourced, are clearly based on a lot of knowledge of the subject of Freemasonry, etc. and present a challenge to uninitiated folk such as myself - in a good way. Re: the 1895 facsimile published by the "Lodge Quatuor Coronati, No. 2076, London" of the so-called "Inigo Jones Manuscript", the notes in the "Introduction" which follows the facsimile of the document point out that Inigo Jones died two years before the earliest possible date of publication, 1655. I didn't feel it was necessary to flag the introduction, as I was confident that members of this forum would soon discover them and form their own opinions. For the sake of clarity, here are the notes to the relevant section of the folio: https://www.quatuorcoronati.com Just a question - as the discussion and research here is centred on Sir Francis Bacon, would you like to share any thoughts you have about his life and achievements?
