  1. Or it can be a mistake on my part. Anyway, this is an ingenious idea with the 2 times 3 black blocks hiding BACON. πŸ™‚
  2. Hi Rob, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on number 84 !πŸ™ And you were right to play with number 83 (TRUTH) as well as about the emphasis on Elizabeth in my poem. πŸ™‚ . I chose to construct my poem with 81 words. I used bold letters for the number XXVII. 27 is 3^3 And 3 x 27 = 81 The words 27 , 54 (2x27) and 81 (3x27) hide the following message : ONE PHILOSOPHER : BACON Francis Bacon mentions the Alchymists in the Chapter XXVII ( Of Frenship) of his Essays. And if I had a Sonnet in my mind when I wrote my poem it was Sonnet 81 ! Keep in mind that 81 is also 9 x 9 And the 9x9 magic square is the square of ... the Moon ! πŸ˜‰ https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/44451/cynthias-revels-queen-and-huntress-chaste-and-fair
  3. Hi Marvin, I suspected that the Biliteral cypher was involved because it seemed that there were 45 turns, 45 being a multiple of 5, allowing to hide 9 letters. My first idea was to play with the Left and Right starting with your indication (R) and imagining that I was in the Maze. It gave me : RLLLL RRLLL LLLLL And that's where I got stuck because BBBBB (LLLLL) being not possible, it meant that L= A and R = B. But BBAAA (RRLLL) does not exist. I have to investigate further πŸ™‚ .
  4. For me, 84 is the simple cipher of ELIZABETH and the pages 84 of the First Folio are important. PRINCE FRANCIS BACON, A LORD, A LAWYER, A PHILOSOPHER, A KNIGHT ... A SPIRIT !
  5. I like the idea that ORG also stands for O 177. It says all about SirBacon.org πŸ˜‰ This being said , regarding GOR, I disagree with you. πŸ™‚ On page 26 (B.F.) of King John https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/348/index.html%3Fzoom=1200.html VV ROG -GOR Notice in "Feast of Battell" the ancient letter "yogh" (303) used intead of a B like in "Bartholmew Bore - pigge". https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/404/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html
  6. I would like to share with you something that I found few years ago. I was exploring the 62nd page of the First Folio (62# F.B.) and I discovered the passage talking about the "twin Letters" in the play "The Merry Wives of Windsor". In this passage, Shakespeare mentions , a Twin Brother, a Giantesse and Mount Pelion. I wondered if it could be clues. Then, I learned the Story of the twin Giants OTOS and EPHIALTES, the ALOADAE , the sons of Neptune, and their link with Artemis. https://www.theoi.com/Gigante/GigantesAloadai.html For me, Shakespeare/Bacon should have concealed the name of one of the two Giants,"the twyn-brother". And I think that I found it ! Why Ephialtes ? Because of his spear and because of Artemis. I remind you that a few lines below there is a reference to Actaeon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Actaeon For Francis Bacon, the myth of Actaeon refers to the secrets of the Princes. https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A28200.0001.001/1:83?rgn=div1;view=fulltext And I wonder if it could hide a reference to another Ephialtes. EPHIALTES OF ATHENS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephialtes https://www.infoshop.org/ephialtes/
  7. Well spotted Hen.W ! πŸ‘ Being on page F. 33 with a reference to the "middle way " right in the center and to have an O slighty raised above the other letters that is letter number 33 from the end is, indeed, not trivial ! πŸ™‚ What immediatly caught my eyes are the two letters right above this "o". I already shared my thoughts on the subject one or two years ago. In my view, there are two ways to conceal the name "SHAKE-SPEARE" by using the middle English. WAG - GAR and ROG - GOR In our case, with the letters "O", "R", and "G" we can form : ROG-GOR Here is an example that I found in the First Folio, on the 62nd page (F.B.) of the First Folio. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/62/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html Both, Sir F. BACoN Knight, T.T. , ROG-GOR https://archive.org/details/minervabritannao00peac/page/33/mode/2up?view=theater
  8. 33, THE ALCHEMICAL KEY Here is one last thing/idea regarding the page of the First Folio talking about "Alchymie". https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/721/index.html%3fzoom=1200.html HINT : I, BaCoN, I AM BACON (Three-Three)
  9. MANY THANKS ROB !!! Thanks for your support , thanks again for playing this game, and thanks for this great presentation of the message that I concealed using Bacon's own cipher. You are right. There is a last letter ! 😊 Following your decipherment it would be : Endlessly seeking the elixir of AABBA G It was tempting, but I chose : Endlessly seeking the elixir of AABBB H The message is : SIR FRANCIS BACON - H This is a reference to the Work of T.D. Bokkenham : https://sirbacon.org/gallery/west.htm And this is also a reference to my own work and research that I shared on this forum. This Poem is a tribute to Francis Bacon and Ben Jonson. And I think that Ben Jonson left a clue in "The English Grammar" published posthumously in 1640. https://archive.org/details/workesofbenjamin00jons/page/n599/mode/2up And though I dare not say, she is, (as I have heard one call her) the Queene mother of Consonants: yet she is the life, and quickening of them. For good measure, in order to end the "Biliteral" part of my poem, I also used Bacon's cipher at the end. Lege, Relege ... AABAB , AAAAB F. B. "Just for fun, anyone who can tell me where the biliteral key that I use came from gets a big ol' smile from me. πŸ™‚" I love your Bookmark ! Thanks to SirBacon.org, I guess, that it comes from an autographed book by Peter Pesic. Am I right ? πŸ™‚ https://sirbacon.org/pesic.htm
  10. Many thanks, Rob ! ❀️ I'm glab you like it ! I was looking forward to sharing with you my take on this passage in Julius Caesar. Feel "Free" to share the fruits of your exploration.😊
  11. Hi Rob, Here is something about John Dee and the Muscovy Company. https://www.rmg.co.uk/stories/topics/search-new-trade https://www.historymuseum.ca/cmc/exhibitions/hist/frobisher/frsub09e.html#cathay2
  12. Thank you for sharing Hen. W. This is very interesting ! Regarding , Ben Jonson's Poem and Francis Bacon's motto, I told you yesterday that I liked to consider PIG as a Reference to the "Bartholmew Bore pigge" knowing that "Bartholmew Fayre" is a Play written by Ben Jonson (And the first one of Ben Jonson's Works published posthumously in 1640). Regarding the number 8, the middle way and the Bible, my research led me to Ecclesiastes Chapter 8, right in the middle of the Bible. This Chapter talks about Wisdome, Knowledge and Power. https://archive.org/details/KJV1611/page/n751/mode/1up?view=theater THE KINGS POWER WHO? F. 33 (16 +17) ? Interestingly, In the 3rd Edition of his Essays published in 1625, Francis Bacon, in his Epistle Dedicatorie, begins with these words : "SALOMON saies; A good Name is as a Precious oynment" This is a reference to Ecclesiastes Chapt. 7 that is on the previous page. A FOOLES LAUGHTER
  13. 33 , THE ALCHEMICAL KEY The word "Alchemy" is used only three times in Shakespeare's Work, twice is Shakespeare's Sonnets and only once in the First Folio. And each time, "Alchemy" is linked to number 33. The very first time that the word "Alcumy" appears in Shakespeare's Work it is in ... SONNET 33 Here is the link to the great work of Light-of-Truth (Rob) on Sonnet 33 and its connection with ELIZABETH TUDOR : https://www.light-of-truth.com/baconlesson.htm (Notice the "soveraine eie") The second time that the word "Alcumie " appears, it is in Sonnet 114 "Alcumie ", the only word in italic, is the 33rd word. T (you) D O R (Notice the words "crown'd" and "monark") "Alchymie" appears only once in the First Folio, in the Play "Julius Caesar" Act 1 Scene 3 https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/721/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html The truth is conceal'd in the "Mid" of this passage , right between the two 3 or 33 : 3 Prince Bacon 3 Francis Bacon's motto was mediocria firma (Midway is safe).
  14. Before work, here is something very important I forgot to mention yesterday. Let's take a look at the 888th page of the First Folio by counting from Ben Jonson's Poem ... https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/889/?zoom=850 Cymbeline - Act 3 Scene 3 WIT (The 33rd word of Ben Jonson's Poem) "This gate instruct you how t'adore the Heavens." The Gates of Monarches are Arched so high. And there are 33 words from "A goodly day" to "mornings holy office". I wish you a goodly day. 😊
  15. Let me return the compliment , Hen. W. 😊 Indeed, we have divergent ideas on how Bacon created his puzzle. For me, there is no doubt that Francis Bacon used anagrams in his codes. But I agree with you that "B.I."'s poem could be the work of Bacon. Let me share with you something I am working on, which means the work is in progress. I did not plan to share it so soon but there is a link with one of the ideas that I shared with you yesterday and based on your principle. HERE IS THE ACME OF MY INVENTIVENESS !!! πŸ˜„ T H I S F I G U R E T H A T T H O U H E R E S E E S T P U T H S I U E H T H U E By using the Caesar code we obtain : - 7 -> A L B N X A M A N X Notice that the last letter E (X) is in the word HERE and notice "HERE SEE" Let's rearrange the letters : ALBAN XX - MAN It came to my mind that Robert Dudley in his correspondance with Queen Elizabeth used Γ΄ Γ΄ as a reference to his nickname "Eyes". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Dudley,_1st_Earl_of_Leicester Could XX - MAN be a code for Blind man and ALBAN XX-MAN be a reference to "The Miracle at St Albans" ? (HERE SEE) https://wilson.fas.harvard.edu/stigma-in-shakespeare/miracle-at-st-albans It sounds crazy ? Here is what I am working on. The motto of Francis Bacon was Mediocria Firma (The middle way is safe) that was the motto of Bacon Family. When I learned that "Firma" also meant "Signature" in Italian, it came to my mind the idea that one way for Bacon to conceal an important message could have been to hide this message in the middle of his writings, and that the presence of this type of message "hidden in the middle" could be a signature, a "proof" of his involvement. Regarding "Ben Jonson"'s Poem, I searched for a message in mesostich. And I have finally found it, but not exactly "in the middle". The "Pi" of ""Picture" and the "G" of "Graver" forming the word "Pig" provide a guiding line. Interestingly, G is the 11th letter on the line and P is the 9th letter. And I say "Interestingly' because the numerical value of MEDIOCRIA FIRMA is 119. Regarding "PiG", I like to think that it is a reference to a peculiar PiG on the 404th page of the First Folio. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/404/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html Notice the "yogh" (303) instead of a letter B at the Beginning of Bartholmew. ( Batholmew Fayre is one of the plays of Ben Jonson and the Saint Batholmew's day is 11 June that is also the date of Birth of Ben Jonson) Back to Ben Jonson's Poem. TWO words are concealed : GATE and SHRINE. And one of the "shrine" mentionned in the First Folio is .... "Saint Albones Shrine" in "The Miracle at St Albans". (Henry VI Part 2) https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/480/index.html%3Fzoom=1200.html HERE SEE BUT I THINK THAT THERE IS MUCH MORE ! Here is something that could explain why the "w" of "with Nature" is in lowercase ... On the middle, we have a reference to the Greek letter Pi On the right, as if by Magic πŸ™‚, we find IOHN DEE and the remaining letters can form the words "heat" or "hate" but I think that they form the Greek letter Heta. On the left, the lowercase "w" that is an anomaly, could be a reference to the Greek letter Omega. The isopsephy (Greek numerical value) of these three letters is 888 that is the isopsephy of IESUS. JOHN 9:11 - King James Bible He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. HERE SEE πŸ˜‰
  16. Thank you Hen.W. I do not know the origin of the reference to the Hilliard miniature but this is something that is known for a long time. And I like your idea too. T H I S F I G U R E T H A T T H O U H E R E S E E S T P U T H S I U E H T H U E Here are two another interesting solutions using the caesar code (without replacing the S by G ) that you probably already noticed : + 9 -> R C S E O R D R E O -> ROSE C. ORDER - 7 -> A L B N X A M A N X -> ALBAN X MAN X
  17. Hi Hen.W. , The decoding presented by A Phoenix is a part of my research, and I have already had occasion to explain its origin very recently in another topic. The "TWO" in acrostic is well-known. I noticed that there was also the word "WIT" in acrostic and that as if by chance "wit" was the 33rd word of Ben Jonson's Epigram. For me, it suggested "Bacon Wit". Having found "WIT" in acrostic, the next logical step was to see if I could find "BACON" with the remaining uppercase letters in acrostic. The answer was ... almost ! There is no uppercase letter "c". But interestingly, there is a space after each coma except after the one following the "O". Why ? In my view, this is a clue. We can use the "c" of "could" and we obtain BAcON WIT - HA Or we can use the "co" of could that is aligned with the uppercase letters and we obtain Γ” BAcoN WIT - HA Interestingly, the letter "F" of "Figure" provides the F of "F. BACON WIT". And regardind the letters H and A, you could say (a reference to your discussion with Kate) that they stand for Hiram Abiff. I think that they form the word HAT with the "T" of "To the Reader".
  18. Hi A Phoenix, I totally agree with Eric. This is a great short video, that goes straight to the point and demonstrates masterfully that Bacon was Shakespeare. And I like your beautiful and eye-catching "Title page". ❀️ Thank you again.
  19. Thank you Rob ! I think that " No one, alas" πŸ˜‰ , other than you, will share here the fruits of his quest. I will share progressively the many secrets of this poem. There are indeed 333 characters to and including the word "Door".😊 I noticed it but, to be honest, this was a happy coincidence. I did not play with the number of characters at all, but with the number of letters. And there are many important counts. From the beginning of the poem to and including "Door" there are 312 letters (CAB). And if we take the 18 letters of the title in count it gives a total of 330 letters. πŸ˜‰. From "Key" to and including "Door" there are 153 letters. Initially, there were 154 letters (a reference to Shakespeare's Sonnet and Sonnet 154 with Cupid and the Virgin Maid) but I changed "your Door" by "the Door". The reasons ? Without losing the reference to the Sonnets (Thanks to the Twin Sonnets 153 and 154) it allowed to have 150 letters from the K of "Key" to the D of "Door" https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/150/?zoom=850 K(10) + D(4) = 14 = DEE And talking about John Dee ... 188 is a reference to your work, Rob ! 188 is the Kay (Key) cipher of JOHN DEE and ETERNITY. But there is more ! 188 + 188 = 376 The number 376 leads us to the 376th page of the First Folio that is page 56 of King Henry IV, the famous page dedicated to "FRANCIS". https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/376/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html Finally, there is a total of 404 letters. 0 being null it gives us the number 44 that is the numerical value (simple cipher) of JOHN. And in my mind 44 is the gematria of "Chol"(Phoenix) , "Dam" (Blood) , "Yeled"(Child) "The Child with the Blood of the Phoenix." And the number 404 lead us to the 404th page of the First Folio in which I discovered Prince F.Bacon and the Queen Mother ... https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/404/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html
  20. The Alchemical Quest Here is one of the many secrets. Key is the 33rd word - 33 = BACON Door is the 67th word - 67 = FRANCIS
  21. One hour later ... It does not work anymore with "Ben Jonson" !
  22. Can anyone explain this mystery to me ? 😊 I wondered if this topic was referenced on Google. Surprise ! Please note that in the second case, there is a link in 26th position to SirBacon.org but a link to the Topic of A Phoenix about anagram and acrostics in which I talked about my poem two days ago, the one that appears in the third case on second position when I mentioned both Francis Bacon and Ben Jonson in the search engine. And even with SirBacon.org as key word , there is no direct link to my Topic. Why does my topic appears with Ben Jonson but not when Bacon is mentioned ?
  23. Here is one suggestion ... H(8) + I(9) + I(9) + P(15) + W(21) = 62 # F.B. ( Francis Bacon) S.W. (Shakespeare William) F.B. - W.S. - the connection - be half
  24. Hi Kate, Did you notice that in Friedman's letter, by counting from "Dear Harrod ..." , if we count "Bacon-shakespeare" as one then "Bacon-shakespeare" is the 33rd word and there are 67 words in total ?
  25. Hi friendsofidb, If it can help, it seems that in fact this is "Les grands mystères du passé " by Decaux published in 1964 that includes a chapter on Shakespeare and Bacon. The chapter seems to be entitled "Shakespeare était-il Shakespeare ?" And I second Rob (Light-of-Truth) . Many thanks for sharing your efforts with us.
