  1. I’ve found a great new resource: Ciphers During the Reign of Queen Elizabeth 1 http://cryptiana.web.fc2.com/code/elizabeth.htm
  2. Welcome to B’Hive Simon. I’ve just had a thoroughly enjoyable morning listening to your Phoenix and Turtle presentation at SAT on your website, and I’m making good inroads into your book. Wishing you every success with it. Kate
  3. Hi My four videos are here Kate’s videos The most recent on cryptology was uploaded 4 days ago. I’d like to ask you, how would you feel about us sharing your find on social media? We could use the original and then Rob’s zoom in ... ...to highlight but, if all agreeable to this, what name should we credit it to? Thank you
  4. I’m hoping to revive this thread as I’m expecting there to be an uptick in searches for info about Francis Bacon, Atlantis and the question ‘Did Bacon found America?’. So for those who land here it will provide some information. AP has a brilliant paper on it above and half my ebook at The-Secret-Work.com is about this very subject. I’m still having a run of synchronicities and here you can see a tweet I screenshotted as I had also just seen this tweet Here’s a zoom in. This is a poem -a Sonnet, no less - on a wall plaque on the Statue of Liberty I don’t expect there to be code or cipher in here, there would be no reason to add it here, but what it does do is link in the word Tempest and a reference to the Rosicrucian lamp and the female twin to the male Colossus counterpart. I thought it was all mildly interesting.
  5. Thanks from me too. What a brilliant find. 👏 Welcome to B’Hive. (Are you on Twitter?)
  6. Thanks Lawrence. High praise indeed. I’m so glad you like it. I wonder if I could just ask everyone reading to go in and like, share and comment under the video, even if only a few words. The reason being, I’ve noticed the traction on these Bacon videos is very slow and the views are extremely low compared to the much higher numbers on my cycles videos. This is likely down to the fact that the algorithms favour videos that are being interacted with more regularly, the rest they leave at the bottom of the pile. It’s important to spread the word. The notes have links to APs work and Sir Bacon and others, so it helps everyone. Also people look at comments and likes to decide whether to watch. I just shared it on my Twitter feeds and on the one nobody has interacted, yet I have over 3300 followers. It’s unfathomable. If someone can add it to FB I'd appreciate it. I may switch the setting to the one which shows clips to try and boost its views too. Thanks again Lawrence and everybody. 😘
  7. Are you saying I’m not the sharpest tool in the box 😂😂 (Joking) Didn't realise when I replied what you were showing was linked to your Sonnets diagram - my apologies Rob. I can see how that might have looked. It wasn’t meant. x
  8. I think it’s probably valid to try reversing it, but personally I think changing words and lines is pretty unlikely - good on you for leaving no stone unturned though, Rob! 😀 BTW, this must have been discovered before, but I only noticed today that the cover has F Bacon. It’s in Shakespeare’s Sonnets Never Before Imprinted (39).
  9. Hi I am adding this here, although it’s also posted and commented on in another section, as some visitors may not look through all topic headings. Thank you
  10. Incase anyone wishes to play around with it, here are my notes from the aborted first attempt before I looked into using the two hyphens alone as the bi-marker. The problem/difficulty with this one is it doesn’t end evenly - even if we were to purloin the signature TT and there’s difficulty in knowing whether to include the hyphens when they are not the same as dots, it is after all a biliteral cipher and not a triliteral. However the first line spelling EIE (which I now realise, thanks to you, is all over the Sonnets) is fascinating. I’ll just add up all their number values and get back to you. Here. I don’t see anything but maybe one of you does? Also there’s the problem with the extra letters not being included. We could, as I said, make a final line of 5 by borrowing from the signature and that would change this calculation, but would still leave spare characters.
  11. Thanks for the great compliments to all of you. That's fascinating about the EIE Yann! In fact it's pretty mind-blowing. K Editing to say, my reply crossed with you posting that above Rob, wow again. I looked at the EIE and just dismissed it.
  12. Hi I'm posting this here as it is essentially a Rosicrucian/Freemasonic topic but it could also go in Ciphers and/or Announcements. I never intended to make this many videos but in the 100 degree heat this week we were virtually imprisoned in our houses, so I set to work. This is just one interpretation of the Sonnets dedication - not a definitive one. We'll never know for sure unless a document is one day unearthed. Kate

    First Folio

    The auction of a First Folio takes place today in New York. You can flick through images of the copy on Sotheby’s website https://www.sothebys.com/en/buy/auction/2022/fine-books-and-manuscripts-including-americana-part-1/shakespeare-william-the-first-folio-2 7 images in total
  14. Found it. I knew I'd read it recently in https://aphoenix1.academia.edu/research It's on page 174 and onwards (Sea Venture and The Tempest). K
  15. Looks like July 1591 or 1595. Can also see from France or Francis above I can’t make it out but he starts with It may please you x x nothing happened to me in the course of my business most contrary to expectation. (x is unintelligible to me) K
  16. Fascinating. I think it’s like when you walk into someone’s home, you can tell a great deal about their personality, (eclectic, controlled, traditional, chaotic etc) by the decor. Likewise handwriting betrays our character. That said, my hand writing is so bad nowadays as I never write but always type. His writing is beautiful. A very Royal signature! Thanks for sharing. PS. I did a graphology evening course for 12 weeks at Roehampton when I was about 25. It never leaves you.
  17. Thanks to the use of the cipher tool kindly supplied by Rob http://www.light-of-truth.com/ciphers.html I think I may have discovered something new (do let me know if it has been seen before though). In the dedication in the Sonnets, the wording is: To the onlie begetter. Begetter means the creator of a work. Therefore I looked at what the word begetter is in cipher and lo and behold it is the simple cipher for Lord Bacon (79) I then thought to myself, well hang on, the Sonnets are from the late 1500s and Bacon wasn't a Lord then, but I am reliably told that there is no certainty as to when the dedication was written and as publication was in 1609, FB was most certainly Lord Bacon by then. The Dark Lady in the Sonnets is thought by some to be the mistress of William Herbert (3rd Earl of Pembroke 1580-1630), Mary Fitton. The dedication is usually read as: To the onlie begetter of these insuing sonnets Mr. W. H. All happinesse and that eternitie promised by our ever-living poet wishest the well-wishing adventurer in setting forth. If it is read like this though: To the onlie begetter (Lord Bacon) of these insuing sonnets Mr. W. H. (William Herbert) - all happinesse and that eternitie promised by our ever-living poet (ie God) - wishest the well-wishing adventurer in setting forth. It makes sense because this could well be a reference to the fact that both WH and Bacon were part of the Virginia Company formed under the Second Virginia Charter of 1609 (see both men listed here) http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/documents/1600-1650/the-second-virginia-charter-1609.php This as you can see below was called the Virginia Company of Adventurers of 1609. So at the time of the publication and perhaps the writing of the dedication in 1609, they were both 'adventurers' setting forth in the colonisation of the new world, America. There was/is an ancient Guild that predates both their lives called The Company of Merchant Adventurers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Company_of_Merchant_Adventurers_of_London from which this is taken: Here is another entry about William Herbert: One reason for the odd wording in the dedication could be to ensure this four corner code, which I have pointed out before, also applies. See here There may well be other code in here too - one I mentioned in my video. Certainly there is dual symbolism in the words 'an adventurer setting forth' as those in the Brotherhood set forward on a journey through the two pillars to the 'great beyond' as we see in the famous frontispieces with Ships setting forth. Finally, one of the flagships in the 1609 colonisation was the Sea Venture, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamestown_supply_missions which ran aground in Bermuda (Somers Isle) and I believe I read AP say this story is linked to The Tempest in the 1623 First Folio.
  18. https://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1604-1629/member/bacon-sir-francis-1561-1626 This is worth a read as there are things and people mentioned which are not in the usual FB biographies.
  19. But the rule with biliteral is it has to be chunks of 5. The video says there weren’t enough people to make the R, but that seems odd to me. They could surely have found 4 more just to get the picture and used Friedman as the 5th? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Fascinating stuff though! Thanks again Rob
  20. Ah I’ve seen it now it’s 5 letters and they are part of the E which begins on the far right. Still can’t see an R but Friedman is the only one not numbered.
  21. It’s copyrighted by the George C Marshall Foundation so please remove it if you think I may be violating their ownership, but here you can see the front row of men and women numbers 5 people but only 4 letters. AP informed me that is Friedman who is unumbered. He’s looking away so that makes it a K (ABAAB) which is why I thought of K (Kay) cipher. Editing to add link: The Picture was seen in a Tweet from the NCM and they have linked to the video at the GCMF, which shows it
  22. I know all who contribute to this forum know about this famous book, but if you are reading from outside this is an indispensable guide to how information was encrypted in the 1600s. Many methods are still in use today. It’s all in Latin, but flick through the pages and you’ll see all the grids and lots of other ways of encrypting info. Anyone who thinks that people who look for codes and cipher in Shakespeare are deluded or ‘conspiracy theorists’ will soon have to rethink when looking through this!

  23. OMG Thank you do much for sharing this http://www.light-of-truth.com/ciphers.html I have spent all day -albeit sitting in the Sun - calculating these by hand on 6 A4 pages! I did have a suspicion/memory you’d shared it previously but could never find it . It’s good for the grey matter but you’ve just changed my life 😂🙏 Yann I can’t see how you arrived at the R in the picture? It has to be a run of 5 after you’ve got to the end doesn’t it? Do you have any insight as to why they left Friedman without a letter and have just put ABAA and not given him a B? It’s all a bit odd. Good luck to you both in the competition! 🏆
  24. Rob, can I ask how you get to 201 for Knowledge is power? I’m getting 189 in Simple and 345 in Kay. What am I doing wrong 😬 Thanks
  25. As you may have seen elsewhere, the NCM have a contest going to encrypt the words Knowledge is Power. Rob had recently written that: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER is 201 in Simple cipher using the modern 26 letter alphabet codes. TWO HUNDRED ONE is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher using the traditional Baconian 24 letter codes, the same as FRA ROSIE CROSS. The two phrases even share 168 Reverse cipher which has many other connections. What I noticed ( because AP had linked to it) is that in an earlier tweet they had shown how Friedman used Bacon’s Biliteral cipher to encrypt the same words in a photograph. But there’s an unexplained anomaly in the picture. The R is missing ( which is explained as not enough people) but why did they use a abaa in the front row instead of the abaab that it is? abaab is K in biliteral cipher, so is this a clue as to a deeper meaning perhaps to use the Kay cipher? Is, perhaps the R in the word power missing for a reason? 201 minus value of R? Or something similar. Just a thought. If this photograph not only says Knowledge is Power but also something linking to Shakespeare or Rosicrucians then it’s a 💥 Ive been looking more closely at this biliteral cipher as it fits so well (bi) with the To and Two and Too clues in the front matter of the First Folio.
