  1. Hi Rob,

    Ryan Plaster and Guitaoist are two different persons and Lawrence already shared a video by Guitaoist about Don Quixote by the past.

    Hi Marvin,

    By claiming that Shake-speare the Author was not Shakspere the Actor, WE are "conspiracy theorists" in the eyes of the Stratfordians and even in the eyes of Baconians that do not think that Bacon was Shakespeare .

  2. Hi everyone,

     The two slides related with "Rosie Cross" in Cymbeline that I shared earlier in another Topic had been planned for "The Alchemical Quest", following the post I made last week.

    Here are all the slides that resume my point of view regarding this passage.



    For me, all is said in this passage, in which Petter Amundsen found few years ago Rosie Cross  concealed in a 3,4,5 triangle.

    We  have "halfe-way" hidden right above "That most venerable man, which I did call my Father".

    In my view, Bacon makes a reference to his Foster Father Nicholas Bacon, whom the motto was "mediocria firma" (Midway is safe)

    He tells us that he is a "Bastard" and  : "my Mother seem'd the Dian of that time".

    Queen Elizabeth Tudor, the Virgin Queen, was seem'd the Dian of that time.



    In the middle (mediocria), the values of the capital letters add to 62 or F.B. (F= 6 and B=2)

    And they deliver a message : I , SOW

    (SOW is the acronym of Son Of Wisdom or Son Of Widow) 

    Be sure that facing the "halfe-way" I wondered if beyond "I, SOW", the remaining (lowercase) letters concealed a message or not.

    Here is what I found ...


    Notice that in the center, "so doth" provides us the letters S,O,D, SOD being the hebrew word for SECRET.

    And in the middle, I found the word "pomme" that is the french word for "apple", and the letters e,r,s,o allowing to make the words EROS (CUPID,  Bastard Son of Venus) SORE and ROSE.

    The words "pomme" and "rose" in the context of a passage in which Bacon seemed to reveal he was the son of Queen Elizabeth immediatly reminded me another one of my discoveries ...


    And SORE, the another anagram of EROS and ROSE can be linked to the Pregnancy Portrait of Elizabeth I.

    See the great work of A Phoenix on the subject :

  3. It is difficult to talk about the content of books that I did not read.

    Like you, I had occasionally listening to the videos from Jake Roberts, and I watched the last one.

    All I can say is that, based on my own research, I do not think that Francis Bacon was the secret son of Mary, Queen of Scots, and Francis King of France.

    And here are two slides that resume my point of view regarding the" Key of the Rosie Cross".



    For me, all is said in this passage, in which Petter Amundsen found few years ago Rosie Cross  concealed in a 3,4,5 triangle.

    Was Mary Queen of Scots seen as the Chaste Dian of her time ??? No !

    But Queen Elizabeth Tudor, the Virgin Queen, was !

    In the introductory matter of the 1974 edition of The Ultra Secret published by Weidenfeld and Nicholson in 1974 appears a page headed ‘Acknowledgements’. Underneath the heading the text contains 100 words (II is counted as two): 100 Francis Bacon in simple cipher which added to the 1 word (‘Acknowledgements’) and the 2 digits (‘vi’): 100+1+2=103 Shakespeare in simple cipher conveying the secret cryptic message Francis Bacon is Shakespeare.




    Hi A Phoenix,

    Sorry, but being wholly absorbed in "Hocus Pocus Junior" I did not take the time to thank you for sharing your great analysis of The Ultra Secret . I saw two or three more things that I will share with you but today time is short.

    Just one thing regarding this first page and the last one ...

    Funny coincidence, if we count KBE as one, the 33rd word is "who" and 33 = BACON


    And  as good things come in threes there are two other "who".

    If we count "II" as two, as you suggest, then the second "who" is the 63rd word and the third "who" is the 81st word.

    And 33 + 63 + 81 = 33 + 144  = BACON + SIR FRANCIS BACON  = 177


    We can't know if it was intended or a mere flight of fancy, but it fits well.

    And notice that the last page mentions the Battle of  ... MIDWAY ! 🙂 

    Kind regards

  5. A quick update regarding my last post.

    I am really sorry, but I made a mistake.

    I was studying the last page of the 4th edition of the Book,talking about name not bound to tell, and noticed that the last paragraph was 33rd lines long, with 148 words on the last page ( without taking the title in count and by counting FINISH as one word).

    It could have been a way to conceal BACON(33) and WILLIAM TUDOR (148).

    Taking a look at the 2nd edition, I realized that the last paragraph was 34 lines long with 180 words on the last page.


    Because the 2nd edition (1635) and the fourth edition (1654) of Hocus Pocus Junior had the same number of pages, I assumed that their pagination was identical ... This is not the case 😞!

    The message that seems to be concealed in the 4th edition (1654) is not found in the second edition (1635).


    Notice that the text was shortened between the 2nd and the fourth edition.

    "A litlle hole in the crowne of it as F" is not found in the 4th edition.

    Was all this intended by a 92 years old Bacon in order to be able to conceal the message that I found in the middle ? 


     I will have to take a look at the third edition.

  6. The Alchemical Quest


    Magic is my first passion from my teenaged years.

    My father teached me my first card tricks when I was 12 or 13 years old.

    For fun, here is the only video about "magic" I posted on youtube, a card trick I created many years ago.😊

    Back to my actual passion, Francis Bacon.

    Yesterday, my research led me (thanks to a post by A Phoenix) to a book of magic published in 1634 :



    This morning, I wondered if a message could be concealed in the middle of the Chapter about Bonus Genius, on the 33rd page of Hocus Pocus Junior (2nd Edition) published in 1635.


    The first word that I saw was "old" echoing the word "Senior" (Principle of Repetition).

    From there, I followed the middle line (Mediocria firma) and I found 'bacon'.

    If it is not "just an illusion" and that this message was intended, it would be a new proof that Francis Bacon feigned his death in 1623, a proof that he was still alive in 1634 and that he was involved in the edition of this Book.

    You see two heads are better than one, because I recall spending a long time looking for any heraldry that had gold/mustard with a black ‘bend sable’ (as they call it) which is why I was immediately struck by Miquel saying there were similarities. Now it’s weakened that somewhat, but the Cervantes/Aragon/Catalonia link is compelling too. My head is spinning! 😵‍💫  Thanks for this! 

    Hi Kate,

    This is a big "IF", but "IF" Francis Bacon was involved in the choice of the Arms granted to John Shakespere in 1596, his choice could have been made deliberately, based on his knowledge of these different links( De Mauley Family , Marlowe, and Cervantes/Aragon/Catalonia).

    I talked to you, yesterday, about the Coat-of-Arms of Edmund De Mauley with Snakes or Wyverns (Dragons).


    There is something that I forgot to mention, a link in one of Shakespeare's play, between Dragons , Merlin and Don Quixote.

  8. Few days ago, Kate shared on another topic one page that is a facsimile of the 1605 Edition of The Advancement of Learning dedicated to cyphers.

    Having studied this page few weeks ago, I noticed an error that makes an interesting difference. 😊

    Indeed, the word "or" is missing.




    Thus, there is a total of 177 words instead of 178.

    And we are in a passage dedicated to "cyphars" and talking about "Simple-cyphars" and "Kay-cyphars".


    177 is the simple cipher of WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

    178 is the Kay cipher of WILL TUDOR.

    Notice that the passage dedicated to the biliteral cipher contains 33 words (33 = BACON) and that from "kindes" to "suspition" there are 67 words (67 = FRANCIS).

    Notice also that there is the capital T of "The" in italic. Why ?

    Here is an idea. It could be a way to indicate a second count.

    "whatsoever" is the 100th word (FRANCIS BACON simple cipher) by counting from "kindes" and by considering "WHEELE-CYPHARS" and "KAY-CYPHARS" as two words. But if we count from "The" and if we consider that "WHEELE CYPHARS" and "KAY CYPHARS" count for 4 words, then "whatsoever" is the 103rd word (SHAKESPEARE).

    This idea seems to be confirmed by the fact that there are 33 words from "The" to "&c." (first sentence)with this count.

    Then, I wondered if a message could have been concealed in the middle.

    Interestingly, if "whatsoever" is the 100th word by counting from "kindes"(the beginning of the page in the original edition), the 33rd word is "vertues", the two words being almost in the middle axis.

    I decided to take a closer look between these two words ...


    Once again, is it nothing more than a coincidence and the fruit of my imagination, or was it intended ? 

    I don't know ! But I see the word spear by taking one letter every second line.

    And which name appears between the lines ?


    W. TUDOR (which is undoubtly possible ! 😄)

    Fun fact : TUDOR appears by using the "tu" of "vertues", the 33rd word (BACON), the "o" of "suspition", the 67th word (FRANCIS), the "d" and "r" of "and read" that are the 51st and 52nd words .

    51 + 52 = 103 = SHAKESPEARE.

  9. Hi Kate,

    Very interesting topic and research.

    Now, like you say about ciphers and acronyms, "one has to be careful not to try and make things fit, but it’s fun trying". 😄

    If Ros Barber or Bastien Conrad were among us they will probably talk to you about the Marlowe-Shakespeare Connection.


    And to give more food for thoughts, here is an idea that I had few years ago.

    We know that both Francis Bacon and William Shakespeare "inherited" their Coat-of-Arms from their father.

    I like the idea that the Blason of Shakespeare could be linked to the De Mauley family, more precisely, the one of Edmund De Mauley with snakes or Dragons.


    Thus, there would be the spear on one side and the dragons on the other side, and it could hide a reference to St George and the dragon.

    Regarding the Coat-of-Arms of Nicholas Bacon, it is said that when he "attained the position of Lord Keeper of the Great Seal and a knighthood, the College of Heralds, about 1568, supplied him not only with a coat of arms but a retroactive pedigree extending back to Normandy".


    This "pedigree extending back to Normandy" is a reference to the De Molay-Bacon Branch, and it explains the "two molets" on the coat-of-arms.

    This is a pun, in French for " deux molet(te)s i.e De Molay.

    Nicholas Bacon - Wikidata

    Thus we would have the Coat of Arms of John Shakspere/ William Shakespeare related with the one of " De Mauley ",

    and the Coat-of-Arms of Nicholas Bacon / Francis Bacon related with the one of " De Molay ".

    Indeed, it's fun ! 🙂

    To anyone with real cryptological experience it is hard to reconcile the impartiality claimed by the authors with the skill and legerdemain by which certain danger-points have been avoided. It is these unexpected manipulations which have led me at times to suspect a “command performance”…[in] what is admittedly a very clever “plant…The professional status of a modern cryptographer does not necessarily fit him to pass judgement on the subtle cryptology of a secret society of the past.

    The book, granted, does away with the fanciful work of some amateur cryptologists, an easy task, an empty triumph. But, having thus gained the confidence of the readers, the authors deceive them by “Scientific” demonstrations which they know to be false.

     [Professor Pierre Henrion, ‘Scientific Cryptology Examined’, Baconiana, Vol. XLIII, No 160 March 1960, pp. 43-63, at pp. 43-4, 47; Vol. LXVI, No. 183, December 1983, p. 76]

    The frankly shocking “legerdemain” of the Friedmans, who unquestionably knew exactly what they were doing….stooped to the very lowest kind of intellectual dishonesty…In truth, this book is probably the most astonishing collection of deceit and deliberately calculated falsifications that have ever been crammed between the covers of a book…I can only believe that some person or organization with a vested interest in the perpetuation of the Stratfordian myth commissioned the Friedmans to write [it].

    [Kenneth R. Patton, Setting The Record Straight: An Expose of Stratfordian Anti-Baconian Tactics...In Elizebeth S. and William F. Friedmans The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined (2000), pp. 5, 8, 13]

    …there is incontestable and publicly available evidence that the Friedmans’ book is a deliberate lie, fabricated to deploy disinformation by standard secret services’ methods. And the most interesting thing is that the main documents confirming such a strong statement were personally signed by the authors of the forged book, William and Elizebeth Friedman. And anyone can personally verify this if they have access to the invaluable storages of the Internet Archive...

    [Anon., [Former Member of Russian Intelligence], 4in1: Mask of Shakespeare: Mysteries of Bacon: Book by Cartier: Secrets of the NSA (Second Edition, 2023), p. 133]

    In 1977 there appeared hidden away in the back of an issue of Baconiana a little-known report. Written by Noel Fermor, Chairman of The Francis Bacon Society, it tells of a meeting that took place between Commander Pares, President of The Francis Bacon Society, W. F. Friedman, former Assistant to the Director of the NSA, and an unnamed Cambridge Professor of Mathematics, together with an account of an astonishing piece of testimony provided by Captain F. W. Winterbotham, a senior member of MI6:

      …it is worth recording that at a subsequent meeting in London, a trois, Pares had demonstrated the ciphers at the conclusion of Camden’s Remaines without contradiction from the Colonel, [Friedman] and to the complete satisfaction of the Cambridge Professor of Mathematics, who was the third party involved. In addition we understand from Group Captain F. Winterbotham, author of Ultra Secret, that Friedman admitted to him that he had been wrong to condemn all Baconian ciphers.1

    Hi A Phoenix,

    I hope that you are well.

    Once again, thank you for all the hard work ! 

    You really are tireless !😅

    And I am sorry to go back in your narration but I have just found something which, I think, will interest you. 😊

    I did not know what "legerdemain" meant in French.

    And in the course of my research, I have just found this book published in 1634.

    Hocus Pocus Junior. The Anatomie of Legerdemain, or the art of jugling .

    1st Edition (1634) - 52 pages



    2nd Edition (1635) - 62 pages


    4th Edition (1654) - 62 pages



    The fact that the 4th edition was sold by one Thomas Vere could work against us but "the truth is elsewhere". 😁

    I will use the fourth edition that is identical to the 2nd edition because I don't know if I can use the photographs of the Library of Congress.

    There are four major differences between the first and the second edition.

    1) the number of pages : 62 ( F.B.) in the Second (TWO) edition.

    2) The printer Mark in the second Edition depicts kind of a Marionnetist or Ventriloquist.

    HICCIUS DOCTIUS means "this is a learned man".


    3) The pages are not nunmbered but by counting from this Title-page, the explanation of "Hiccius Doctius" is given on the 33rd and 34th pages.

    33 = BACON (simple cipher)

    33 + 34 = 67 = FRANCIS (simple cipher)

    Nuntium invisibilis means "invisible messenger".


    4) And the cherry on the cake is on the 50th page ...

    "A device how to multiply one face, and make it seem to be a hundred or a thousand"

    (100 = FRANCIS BACON simple cipher)


    The face on the left looks familiar. 😄

    And on the right we have not hundred faces but ... 39 ! ( F. BACON simple cipher)

    Have a nice day.

  13. My quest began seven years ago thanks to Oracle Cards that inspired me a story.

    The writing of this story led me to the First Folio and this is how I learned about the SAQ.

    I essentially watched videos from Baconians and Oxfordians and some videos from Marlowians.

    Facing the difficulty to read books on the subject in English, I quicky decided to follow my own way and to see where it would lead me.

    When I began to flip through the pages of The Tempest, two pages immediatly caught my attention.


    I noticed that on the right column of page 7, and on page 11 , many letters W had been replaced by VV.

    It was clearly intended and it should mean something. I was hooked ! 😄

    Regarding the page 7, as there was not one "vv" on the left column, it occured to me that the secret should lie in the number of the lines, by counting from the beginning of the right column.

    The count led me to number 444.

    At that time, I learned that 444 was the gematria of HaMikdash (The Temple).

    And for me it was interesting because it could be linked to Shakespeare Monument at Westminster Abbey with Shakespeare pointing to the word "Temples".

    Cipher in Westminster Abbey


    Then, I envisaged that 444 could indicate a page or a leaf.

    This is the reason why I began to analyse page 444 and pages 887/888 (444th leaf).

    And this is how I realized that the "ROSIE CROSS" found by Petter Amundsen was at the 444th leaf.

    Was it a hidden reference to the Temple of the Rosie Cross ?


    Thanks to Rob, I learned that 444 = 157 + 287

    157 and 287 being the simple cipher and the Kay cipher of ... FRA. ROSI CROSSE

    Few months ago, I noticed that this passage concealed more secrets ...


    W. TUDOR

    And today, for the first time in seven years, I came back to the page 7 of The Tempest to make this post.

    All was there, right before my eyes 😲 ...



    Regarding F. Bacon  and the Commonwealth, I shall live the final word to Ben Jonson.

    Lord Bacon's Birth-day,

    Hail, happy Genius of this ancient pile !
    How comes it all things so about thee smile ?
    The fire, the wine, the men !  and in the midst
    Thou stand'st as if some mystery thou didst !
    Pardon, I read it in thy face, the day
    For whose returns, and many, all these pray ;
    And so do I.  This is the sixtieth year,
    Since Bacon, and thy lord was born, and here ;
    Son to the grave wise Keeper of the Seal,
    Fame and foundation of the English weal.

    What then his father was, that since is he,
    Now with a title more to the degree ;
    England's high Chancellor :  the destin'd heir,
    In his soft cradle, to his father's chair :
    Whose even thread the fates spin round and full,
    Out of their choicest and their whitest wool.
       'Tis a brave cause of joy, let it be known,
    For 'twere a narrow gladness, kept thine own.
    Give me a deep-crown'd bowl, that I may sing
    In raising him, the wisdom of my king.



    EDIT :

    For those who don't have watch my videos on the subject (Lord Bacon's Birth-day) ...

    There are 3 words in italic in Ben Jonson's Poem:

    Genius, Bacon and Englands

    These three words form the following sentence :

    Bacon, England's Genius 

    The fact is that by counting from "Lord Bacon's ..." :

    Genius is the 6th word

    Bacon is the 65th word

    Englands is the 106th word

    6 + 65 + 106 = 177


    BACON = 33 (Simple cipher)

    GENIUS = ENGLANDS = 72 (Simple cipher)

    33 + 72 + 72 = 177

  14. Hi AP,

    Here are some additional thoughts / Ideas regarding the official plaque from the National Security Agency ‘To The Memory Of George Fabyan From A Grateful Government’.


    The values of the first letters of each line add to ... 133.

    100 (FRANCIS BACON) + 33 (BACON)

    The name FRANCIS can easily be formed from ...

    Colonel Fabyan and his Riverbank , I , National Security Agency

    I took a closer look in the middle and by chance I found :

    F bacon - Free - tt

    "A random coincidence or design?" (to quote Kate)  I don't know.

    But this is the only place where it works.

    Notice that by counting "seventy-fifth" as one word there are ... 70 words.

    (70 is the gematria of SOD meaning secret)

    As 70 = 14 x 5, I am wondering if they used the biliteral cypher in one way or another to hide a 14-letter message.

    And just for fun ...

    The strange incomplete letters A and O (and D) in the seal right above the plaque inspired me a new way to write United States of America with the biliteral cipher in work 😁.

    Hi all!

    I've clearly missed out on some important discussion!

    I wish I could be more active on the forums (and, quite honestly, I probably can)... anyhow, I'll take the time tonight and tomorrow to skim this whole thread and post my thoughts. In the meantime, here's a distinctly Masonic puzzle for you to solve:


    Hi Marvin,

    Here are some ideas !

    Evidently, I noticed the 33 words as a reference to BACON.

    There are 23 points in total ( two 3 ?)

    There are 22 "stars".

    Francis Bacon was born the 22nd of January 1561 .

    Sarah Winchester died in 19 ... 22.

    We know your passion for LLANADA VILLA, the House on the Plain or the HOUSE ON FLAT LAND.

    It could explain your choice to play with the "flat earth" concept.

    Now, what about the meaning of the "stars".

    Here is my idea. 😅

    I think that you decided to hide the letter W (Cassiopeia) and S that stand for WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE ...


     ... and that from there, you add some lines in order to conceal the letters that spell the name WINCHESTER in reference to SARAH WINCHESTER and the WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE.


    This being said, maybe I'm completely off base on this.😄

    Anyway, here is something allowing to ensure that all this fit in with "The Alchemical Quest" Topic ! 😊

    He (William Friedman) doesn’t seem to be dismissing it here either - “lends plausibility” - and he may have felt more safe in speaking openly here as at the time he knew it was classified! He mentions it at the start (about how the lectures were classified). As I say, I think he was just dismissing Wells- Gallup not Bacon as author. Also I listened to a 3-part lecture the other day, which was similar material but not nearly as great as the PDF above, which has a really comprehensive history of Cryptography, dating back to Antiquity. 

    Anyway in the spoken lecture Friedman imparts a bit of interesting trivia, he mentions how the famous ‘Knowledge is Power’ photograph contains a discrepancy as one person looked the wrong way! Maybe they fixed it as I never noticed it unless it’s on the very front?

    What if the use of the word "diffidence" twice by William Friedman was in fact a clue ?

    What if it was a reference to the First Folio, more precisely to Act 3 Scene 3 of Henry VI part  1 ( page 108) ?



    "Thy Cunning had no diffidence"

    (See "The Alchemical Quest" for more details on this page 108)

    Until recently there had been no official recognition by the US government for the invaluable service rendered by the Baconian-Shakespearean Riverbank Cipher Department, the birthplace of US cryptology and forerunner of the National Security Agency (NSA), the central and most important arm of its Intelligence Services.

    This quietly changed following the discovery of previously unknown documentary material at the modern Riverbank estate by John W. Kopec which along with the industry of Louis Kruh, editor of Cryptologia, finally prompted an official response from the mighty NSA.

    The events leading up to it began in 1991 when Louis Kruh contacted John W. Kopec and arranged to visit Riverbank. The tour of the place took in the laboratory and museum, ‘While we were in the museum, I surprised him with some letters and artifacts I had stored on codes and Colonel Fabyan. Kruh commented on the incredible significance that the letters and artifacts meant to the history of cryptology.’1 Kruh subsequently wrote an account of his visit in his article ‘A Cryptological Travelogue: Riverbank -1992’ printed in the January1993 edition of Cryptologia: A Quarterly Journal Devoted to Cryptology.2 For Louis Kruh the expert writer on cryptology his sojourn to the secretive Riverbank estate was a lifetime ambition, ‘This almost mythical site, described by one writer as the cradle of cryptology, became the Shangri-la that I longed to visit.’3

    Hi A Phoenix,

    I love TAROT CARDS for their connection with my research.

    You eventually noticed that 17 (The Star) + 12 (The Hangman) + 4 (The Emperor) = 33 🙂

    For me THE STAR represents the NAKED TRUTH.

    I like to think that the Bird on the Tree in the Background is a Phoenix and that it is a reference to the Palm Tree also called the Phoenix Tree.

    Notice also the Stars above the Naked Truth.

    I love the fact that they conceal the numbers 53 ( 5 yellow stars and 3 blue stars), 314 and 143 ( 1 big star, 4 small yellow stars and 3 blue stars).

    And for me, 143 is the numerical value (simple cipher) of QUEEN ELIZABETH.

    314 is the simple cipher of FRATERNITY OF THE ROSI CROSSE.

    Lawrence, this morning I wondered if "naked truth" was used in the First Folio.

    Indeed, twice ! 🙂 

    The first one is on page  ... 143 of COMEDIES! 😁

    The second one is on page 103 (SHAKESPEARE simple cipher) of HISTORIES.

    Sorry for bringing back "ciphers" on the table (I know that it is not really your cup of tea 😅) but your great poem helped me to find two another signatures concealed by Bacon thanks to the "Mediocria" technic.




    The second "Naked Truth" is found on page 103 of "King Henry VI - Part 1".

    And F. BACON is concealed in the middle of the passage, between the two Roses. 😉 



    F. BACON - I have pleaded trurh

    "Let him that is a true-borne Gentleman, and stands upon the honor of his birth ..."


    Between two Roses, "the red rose and the white".

    The union of the red Rose and the white ... THE TUDOR ROSE.


    Good week-end !
