    As I understand it, no one knows exactly when the sculpture of Francis Bacon was installed in St Michael's Church. Even if it was carved posthumously, the idiosyncratic pose suggests that before he 'died' Francis Bacon himself may have sat for sketches by Nicholas Stone for his own funerary monument. It is such an unusual memorial, breaking all past conventions with its informality of posture. If the pose was predetermined by Lord Bacon, he couldn't have chosen a more psychologically meaningful representation of himself, in the sense that the body we see is vacant. The sitter's mind is far away. The tangible and intangible in one image.

    Hi Eric,

    I already mentionned it in another topic but I wonder if the sculpture could be linked to the 33rd Emblem on page 157 of MONOGRAMMON published in 1616 ...



    By the way, the misnumbered XXXXIII (instead of XXXIII) could be a clue.

    Here is Emblem XLIII on page 167 ...


    "Interiore hominum similes sunt corpore porci :

    Sape bono natis sanguine porcus ines."

    seems to mean :

    "Inwardly, men are like the body of a swine: indeed, the blood of a good born swine is in it."

    Edit :

    Being in the topic of Acrostic and Anagram, I remind you that MONOGRAMMON is the Book published the year of Shakespeare's death  in wich is found the following first Emblem ...


    ... hiding F. BACON.

    In my view, the choice of pose for the Sculpture of Francis Bacon, that is very similar to the pose of the man in Emblem 33, could be a way to link the death of Francis Bacon with the death of Shakespeare.

    I saw one of your triangles when putting up my quick post this morning. I bet you saw it even though I didn't draw it out.

    Thanks to you Rob for allowing me to use the copy of your 1625 Edition 🙏❤️.

    What I shared with you today is what I had in mind in march when I asked you if I could use your beautiful photograph of this page. 😊

    Regarding the triangle you're talking about in Sonnet 110, indeed I saw it ! 🙂 More precisely, I saw what looks almost like the mirror image (chiral 😉) of the Triangle mentioned by CJ. I wonder if it is just a coincidence or if it was intended.

    Hi Yann,

    You truly are the wonder of the Baconian world.

    Many thanks for your very kind words A Phoenix !🙏❤️

    Here is a last thing that I forgot to bring up in my presentation.

    Regarding the choice of vestment for Shakespeare in the actual Shakespeare Monument,

    I learned that it was the vestment of a scholar from Oxford, and I know that for the Oxfordians this is a clue in favor of Edward de Vere the 17th Earl of Oxford.

    But what if it was in fact, here again, a reference to one passage of the First Folio ?

  4. TEJAT and ALMEISA that represent CASTOR and POLLUX are concealed on page 169.

    Once again, I do not think that it is by chance.

    Shakespeare's Sonnets were published in 1609.

    The Wisdome of the Ancients by Francis Bacon was published in 1609.

    16 and 9 are linked to the quartenary and the ternary.

    Indeed : 16 = 4x4 and 9 = 3x3

    And 16 and 9 remind us the 47th problem of Euclid.

    Now, I let you appreciate the three pages 169 of the First Folio and their connection with the actual Shakespeare Monument ...



    And here is something that I shared with you few months ago.

  5. From the previous Square, we can draw a "HOUSE".

    The "House" contains 84 words (still skipping the I. that is a number).

    For me, 84 is the simple cipher of ELIZABETH.

    And I can link this "HOUSE" with the one that I discovered on page 84 of Histories and that represents the constellation CEPHEUS. ( see my first video -1623)



    Regarding the number 84 and this Essay, I let you appreciate the Armory on page 84 of "The Accedens of Armory" 😉 



    But that's not all ! I think that this "HOUSE" is more than just a reference to CEPHEUS (74).

    To understand, we have to take a look at the comments of Macrobus on "The Dream of Scipio" and more precisely the chapter talking about the septenary.




    On page 33, we learned the meaning of the Septenary as the union of the Quaternary and the Ternary.


    And on page 31, we learn that the number 7 represents Virginity and is associated with PALLAS/MINERVA.


    I think that the use of this simple shape allowed Francis Bacon to make both a reference to his Muse Pallas Athena, to his mother the Virgin Queen and to his princely name WILLIAM TUDOR ( WILLIAM = TUDOR = 74 = CEPHEUS)


    Did you noticed the two Angels on top, standing on one foot ?

    I think that it is a reference of a specific passage of the First Folio that is on the 444th leaf of the First Folio

    444 = 157 + 287 ( Thank you again to Rob/ Light of Truth)

    And 444 is the gematria of MIKDASH the Hebrew for TEMPLE.


    This is on this leaf, on the following page, that can be found the famous reference to the ROSY-CROSS.


    Notice that the triangle crosses the feet of the two Angels ... This is not by chance !




    This is a reference to two stars of the constellation GEMINI : TEJAT AND ALMEISA.

    The fact is that Petter Admundsen found a reference to these two stars hidden in the First Folio ...

    ... on page 169 of HISTORIES.


    To be continued ...

  6. The Triangle and the Circle are inscribed in a Square and I find that the figure is very similar to EMBLEMA XXI of ATALANTA FUGIENS published in 1617.



    A circle for the man and wife provide,

    Which make quadrangular with equal side,

    That trigonal, resulting in a Sphere:

    And then the blessed Stone to you will appear.

    If this too high and too abstruse you find,

    Geometry will soon inform your mind.

    Still in my view, it could be a reference to the famous page 53 of COMEDIES ...

  7. Hi everyone,

    Today, 16/09, I would like to share with you my thoughts and the fruit of my research on " Of Truth", the First Essay of Francis Bacon in the 3rd Edition fo his Essays published in 1625, two years after the First Folio, an essay which (in my view) is linked to the First Folio and Shakespeare Monument.

    Initially, it was to be a video for the 400th Anniversary of the First Folio, but I finally choose another subject.

    Here are some of the slides that I prepared for the video.


    I already shared with you the importance, for me, of the word "wit" that is the 33rd word of Ben Jonson's Poem at the beginning of the First Folio, indicating that BACON'S WIT was in play.

    BACON'S WIT is also in play in "Of Truth".

    (OF TRUTH = 103 = SHAKESPEARE - Thank you Rob 😊)


    Notice that right in the middle (Mediocria firma) of "Of Truth" 

    we have  : F. BAC. WIT that stands for Francis BACon WIT

    The  letters F (6) (2) (1) C (3) provide us with the four numbers that we find in the year of publication of the First Folio Folio (1623) and of the Second Folio (1632).

    The first word in Capital "WHAT"(1) and the three words in Italic  "Pilate is Truth"(6,2,3)

    confirm the importance of these 4 numbers/letters.


    I also revealed in my first video (1623) the Triangle concealed by Francis Bacon in this page, with four "FBAC" and the word FREE of FREE-WILL right in the center.

    With F (6) = B(2) + A (1) + C (3)

    (The Unity and the Trinity)



    We know  that Free = 33 = BACON

    And here, Free is the 33rd word by counting from "Of Truth" (Skipping the number I. that is not a word)

    It makes "will" the 34th word and Free-will = 33 + 34 = 67 = FRANCIS

    At the time of my first video I stopped here, but there is much more ...




    From the Triangle we can draw a Circle.

    And this first Circle allows to draw a second Circle, creating a Vesica Piscis.


    And in the center of this Vesica Piscis appears a sentence that takes all its meaning :


    Notice the two points of intersection of the Circle "In" and "Pi" or "In Pi"

    Interestingly, if we consider P as the greek letter Rho(R) , this gives us  INRI.

    And here is what I found hidden vertically ...

    I read this today, "Sir Francis Drake continued to 'singe the King of Spain’s beard' (as Francis Bacon put it), seemingly with impunity. "


    I can't find this as Bacon's quote. I wondered if it was about Drake specifically.


    Hi Rob,

    I found it. This is in "Considerations touching a War with Spain" and yes, this is about Drake specifically. 🙂

    As I type this post we are in Line 1532 of the Sonnets, or Line 5 of Sonnet 110 on Day 259.



    The original spelling with Bacon's complete thought:

    Most true it is,that I haue lookt on truth
    Asconce and strangely


    I love this statement by Bacon. Look at the visual in the 1609 version:



    Most true it is, that I haue lookt on truth Asconce and strangely: I am Bacon

    We are in Day 259 which is the Kaye cipher for SHAKESPEARE.

    Sonnet 110 is the last Sonnet of the 10th Tier, Sonnet 111 begins the 11th Tier. There are several places in the Sonnets where 110 goes to 111 with both Secret Seal numbers 157 and 287. In this place when Tier 10 ends and Tier 11 begins as Sonnet 110 ends and Sonnet 111 begins, we see that the 11 letter Reverse cipher of Sonnet 110 is 182.

    ONE EIGHTY TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye ciphers.

    The 11 letter Reverse cipher of Sonnet 111 is 102.

    ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher.



    Speaking of 102, there are 102 words of Sonnet 110 on its physical page (see above where I colored some letters).


    ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple, 168 Reverse, 58 Short, and 287 Kaye ciphers.

    WILLIAM TUDOR I is 157 Simple, 168 Reverse, 58 Short, and 287 Kaye ciphers.

    Perfect matches with all four basic ciphers. Day 259 is contained in Sonnet 110 and the Kaye cipher of Sonnet 111 is 259 hinting at the name SHAKESPEARE. And as we saw above, our Poet hints, "I am Bacon" on the page somewhat in our face when describing how he looks on Truth. 🙂

    I have a very busy day, but hope to continue this as we transition into the 11th Tier at the end of this weekend. Sonnet 110 says a lot about who Bacon is:

    ALas 'tis true, I haue gone here and there,
    And made my selfe a motley to the view,
    Gor'd mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most deare,
    Made old offences of affections new.
    Most true it is, that I haue lookt on truth
    Asconce and strangely: But by all aboue,
    These blenches gaue my heart an other youth,
    And worse essaies prou'd thee my best of loue,
    Now all is done, haue what shall haue no end,
    Mine appetite I neuer more will grin'de
    On newer proofe, to trie an older friend,
    A God in loue, to whom I am confin'd.
       Then giue me welcome, next my heauen the best,
       Euen to thy pure and most most louing brest.



    WOW !!!😮

    Thank you for sharing Rob !❤️

    This is a great analysis.

    I have just come home from work. This morning, I thought that 16 sept - 16/09 would be a perfect date to share with you my take on "Of TRUTH" the first Essay of the 3rd Edition of Bacon's Essays.  I was wondering what was the corresponding line in your Sonnet Pyramid and ... you gave me the answer ! 😊

    "Most true it is, that I haue lookt on truth"

    There are 33 letters.

    33 = BACON

    And I noticed the word "essaies".

    After a quick research, it seems that this word (in its plural form) was used only once in all Shakespeare's works, precisely here, in the Sonnet 110.


    I am looking forward to discovering your take on the transition Sonnet 110/Sonnet 111. 

    Edit :

    "essaies" is the 62th word ... 62 # F.B. 😊

    My take on this (without looking up and re-reading Weeks' article) was that he seems to lead us around from one work to another to get the whole thought, with clues.  He is leading us on a treasure hunt. Bacon named one writing Filum labyrinthum, an allusion to Ariadne's thread that helped Theseus escape from the labyrinth after he killed the minotaur. Bacon includes the story in his Wisdom of the Ancients (as you know).

    Hi Christie,

    I totally agree with you.

    This is amazing Yann. I have tweeted (and obv credited you)

    Here you can see from Mashable and many other sites it says 434 years but today many outlets are suddenly saying 437 years.  So we need to broaden the range.


    Thank you Kate !

    By the past, comets were seen as Spears/lances or swords that pierced the sky, which is one of the explanations of the beautiful woodcut shared by Rob.  

    The Arabic term for "comet" and "meteor "  is Nayzak meaning ... short spear/lance.


    (See 2.5 Nomenclature of transient celestial objects)



    I think that NAYSAK could be one transliteration of NAYZAK.

    And Brandish your "crystall Tresses in the Skie" could mean "Brandish your Spear" or in other term "Shake your Spear."

    With BACON in acrostic,  it could suggest that BACON was SHAKE-SPEARE.

    If any sign was needed from the sky here it is.

    Comet Nishimura C/2023 P1 is putting in an appearance. Discovered on 12 Aug 2023 with an observation arc of seven months, the last time it would have been seen was around 434 years ago (I'm not sure how precise NASA can be with comets) However, most news outlets are reporting it as "for the first time in 400 years".

    It is obviously 400 years since the printing of the First Folio, and ultimately there are no coincidences in life.

    434 years ago was 1589. Look back and see what you can find.

     It's currently in the constellation (not sign) Leo, moving to Virgo by 17 Sep. I need to check it exactly but brought down to the ecliptic that should put it in the astro sign  of Virgo  - Virgin Queen/Virginia moving to Libra.

    Comets blaze forth the death of Princes  (more precisely "When beggars die, there are no comets seen;
    The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes")is a bit of a misconception these days , but they are definitely still seen as (correlate to) heralds of something.

    The Dugdale/Hollar Monument

    In the drawing by Sir William Dugdale carefully engraved by Wenceslaus Hollar published in the Antiquities of Warwickshire ‘Shakespeare’ is depicted appearing to clutch a sack without (as appears in the familiar Shakespeare monument) resting his left hand on a paper laid on a cushion with his right hand holding a quill. The sack observes Dawkins is clearly a woolsack. The Dugdale drawing/engraving of the Shakespeare monument appears to have been designed ‘to draw notice to its Masonic significance, for the arms of Shakespeare are shown in a most awkward but stylised way which immediately draws attention. These arms are disposed such that they portray the geometrical form of the Masonic Square and Compass, the single most universally identifiable symbol of Freemasonry. The upper arms and head form the Compass (i.e., pair or set of Compasses) the lower arms and hands the Square.’ To substitute a woolsack for a cushion is of great Baconian-Rosicrucian-Freemasonic significance because the most famous woolsack is the seat of the Lord Chancellor (Bacon was Lord Chancellor of England) while presiding over the House of Lords. The lions shown crowning the pillars alludes to the ‘Lions Paw’, the grip used in the third degree ritual to resurrect or raise up the Freemason from darkness into light.

    Don't make me have to do this.

    You are looking with anticipation, and you know how to generate the number interpretations you require to come to the conclusions you want to have be made. Absolutely nothing here gives you Shakespeare but the last number sum you invoked. You have those numbers and meanings in your back pocket ready to use, always. Shame for your inability to be critical of yourself when suggestible young people may be reading. 

    CJ, don't make me have to do this.

    You are looking with anticipation too, and you know how to generate the "Triangle" you require to come to the conclusions you want to have to be made. I am really not an expert in geometry so correct me if I am wrong, but I have the impression that absolutely nothing  gives you this "Triangle" but your choice of one peculiar right-angle triangle amongst all the possible right-angle triangles that can be generated from your diagonal AT. You have this "Triangle" and the "TAU" and meaning in your back pocket ready to use, always. What makes you think that your suggestion is more valuable ?

    Regarding my previous post, you say

    "What if 2+48+53 has another more obvious explanation? You know, one that we can source from nature. You seem to be grossly unaware of the 33 day period in five parts in the cycle of Mercury. You've not completed that equation properly either. It's 2+48+53+5=108 that is at play here. That 108 is of high importance as it is 4x27.  The four and the five are essential for the 4x5=20 cycle suggestion (TT, also three to the power of three, thirty three or trente trois ). That 108 is that "holiest" of approximate numbers that seemed to affect the ratios of diameters, distances and periods that apply to the Sun, moon and the precession cycle."

    First of all, I never said that I was learned in Astronomy. I am not. I am a newbie in this field and in many others. I also consider that I am a newbie both in the world of Bacon and in the world of the Shakespeare Authorship Question.

    I began my studies and my own research only seven years ago. I have so much to learn !!! And I am glad that I found sirbacon.org and this forum, that gives me the opportunity to learn more every day about Francis Bacon.

    Now, based on my post, you say that I have not completed my equation properly.

    My analysis is that Discours 2 (Bacon)+ Discours 48 (Bacon) + Discours 53 = 103 that can be a reference to Shakespeare.

    And you say that I am wrong because I did not take the BACON on the 5th unnumbered "page" " in count ? 😄

    Did you  read at least the Preface of the book ?

    I guess that the answer is NO !

    If YES, you would know that there is a fourth BACON mentionned on the 24th page.

    Talking about the Preface, here is something else that I did not mentioned. There are 36 pages before the  first numbered page (3) of Discours I, which means that the page number 33 (the page quoting Bacon) is the 67th page from the Frontispiece, giving us FRANCIS (67) BACON (33).

    I resume : we have BACON on page 33 that is the 67th page of the Book, 67 being the simple cipher FRANCIS.

    So yes, it can be just a coincidence OR with the FACT that there is no DISCOURS 52 with a shift from 51 to 53 for a total of 67 Discours, it could suggest that ciphering is in play.

    Now, take the two BACON in Capital letters on the 5th and the 24th page of the book and you obtain the number 29.

    Interestingly , the Discours XXIX is the only misnumbered (XXIV) Discours in the 1638 Edition.

    This Discours 29 on page 333 is about ATALANTE.



    Let's take a look at the true DISCOURS XXIV



    This Discours is the translation in French of Chapter II of "The Wisdome of the Ancients" (Francis Bacon -1609)


    "The Birth of Pallas"

    Hi Yann,

    You truly never cease to amaze me. AWESOME.

    Thank you A Phoenix. ❤️

    Before going to work, here are some additional information.

    I remind you that there are 68 Discours in total in "Recueil d'Emblems Divers", but that there is no Discours 52.

    So, in fact there are 67 Discours , 67 = FRANCIS

    If there is no Discours 52 , it means that Discours 53 should be Discours 52.

    Does a number 53 that should be a number 52 reminds you something ? 😊



    AETATIS 53

    It let me think that the missing chapter 52 was intended, allowing that the sum of the numbers of the three Discours add to 103 (SHAKESPEARE simple cipher).

    Interestingly, 2 + 48 + 52 = 102 (ONE HUNDRED TWO)

    In my view, the number 53 associated with Mercury, the "Director", can be seen as a number to follow ...

    In "Recueil d'Emblemes divers" :


    Pages 52 and 53 : Bellerophon (A Spear-Shaker) on Pegasus.

    And in the First Folio :

    Page 53 of COMEDIES



    Page 53 of HISTORIES



    Ans as a last thought , I wonder if this Emblem (1638) ...



    ... could have been the source of inspiration of this Frontispiece (1645)

    Quicksilver is Mercury, and Mercury with the Caduceus is a known symbol of Freemasonry (some call it the forgotten symbol of freemasonry). All one has to do is equate Bacon to Mercury and the case is made. Is that right? Is that how that works? 

    No indeed,  this is not how that works.

    This is a set of elements that, together,  suggest that we can equate BACON to MERCURY.

    Here is something else that I share for the first time.


    The French Book "Recueil d'Emblemes Divers" was published in 1638 by Jean Baudoin who was the translator in French of some of Bacon's Works, of which "The Wisdome of the Ancients".

    I agree with the theory that Francis Bacon feigned his death in 1626 and I think that he supervised the edition of this book which is a true goldmine ( I already shared a part of my research in another topic).


    Notice that" Le grand CHANCELIER BACON" is mentioned on the very first page.

    Does Jean Baudoin mentioned Bacon elsewhere in this book ?

    Indeed, twice, on page 33 (BACON simple cipher) and on page 485.


    33 + 485 = 518 

    And on page 518 we have the Emblem depicting ... Mercury/Hermes/Quicksilver !

    By the way, Bacon is mentioned in Discours 2 and 48 and the two "Bacon" lead us to Discours 53.

    2 + 48 + 53 = 103 = SHAKESPEARE (Simple cipher)


    Here is an alternative vision of Mercury than the one of a Trickster 🙂 

    "In the life we lead, as it is impossible not to encounter obstacles, as this emblem teaches, we necessarily need a Mercury, that is to say a Director who shows us where we have to go, for we are enveloped in so many clouds here below that it is difficult to dissipate them without divine assistance."

    "FRA." has the known meaning of brother, but we are given FAR. Why not just us FA and imply Free and Accepted. Is anyone saying FAR is Francis?

    Hi CJ,

    I would answer you  : " Is anyone saying LVRESI is SILVER ?" 😊

    Me, at least, seeing this as a possibility of anagram.

    So, in the same vein, FAR could be seen as the anagram of FRA that, indeed, could be the diminutive of FRATER or FRATERNITY ... or FRANCIS.

    The fact is that I did not know the play "EAST-WARD HOE" and its character "Francis Quicksilver" before the academic paper and the video of A Phoenix.

    And seeing what seems to be "Quicksilver" in acrostic and the letter F, yes, indeed, my mind drew a link with "FRANCIS QUICKSILVER". It can be a bad syllogism but what if it was really intended ?

    Taking a (silver)quick look to "East-ward Hoe" here is what I noticed ... 



    STAY Sir.

    Notice the last poem with 33 Roman words and 2 Italic words.


    And when I see these 4  letters O, T, A, M, I immediatly see ATOM.

    And my mind draw a link with Chapter  XVII of The Wisdom of the Ancients and the page 100 of Comedies.



    Where you probably see bad syllogisms , I see possibilities.

    Regarding "EAST-WARD HOE" , Quicksilver and the number 33 , here is something else that is interesting.


    The 33rd page (by counting from the Title page) is the first and only page with " EAST WARD HOE" on top.

    All the previous pages have "EASTW  ARD HOE" (except the 5th page with EASTW  ARED HOE)

    and in the next ones we have "EASTWARDHOE", "EASTWARD HOE" or "EASTW ARD HOE"

    This passage is interesting with HUNDRED = 100 = FRANCIS BACON (simple cipher)

    And I remind you that at that time BACON was used to trap Mice 🙂 .
