  1. How about Grand Master of the Whole Wide World! πŸ™‚ G M W W W is 108 Kaye cipher, or FB Simple cipher. Thank you for sharing this Yann! I hope it becomes a regular feature. πŸ™‚ I am ever amazed! And pleased how you are of Light and Love!
  2. Can't wait to get mine! πŸ™‚ Will I read the hundreds of pages front to back? Not likely, but I may read every page randomly over the rest of my lifetime as I visualize this book always being within reach. πŸ˜‰
  3. This is THE page with much of the Francis and Anon banter. And it is merely a wink to explore these pages more. FRANCIS is 67 Simple cipher as is well known and appears 33 times. ANON is 67 Kaye cipher which is not as well known. I've spent weeks or months exploring this play when I first started seeking Bacon's thinly placed captaine Iewells in the carconet. πŸ˜‰ https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/376/index.html%3Fzoom=800.html You know, in Shakespeare's works it is rare to find the word "hang" and not find "Bacon" below it. I wonder if "Woolsack" refers to "Lord Chancellor"? Why the very noticeable typo, "mntter"? MNTTER is 111 Kaye cipher which is the same as BACON. A Kings Sonne? A Queen's son I believe. πŸ˜‰
  4. So now I am on a "woolsack" adventure for a Saturday afternoon. A Google search with "woolsack" and "Francis Bacon" has a ton of interesting results with many on SirBacon.org. So many times for centuries Bacon's name and "woolsack" appear together. One example: https://sirbacon.org/johnsonmac.htm Bacon knew as well as any man that a judge who listens to private solicitations is a disgrace to his post. He had himself, before he was raised to the woolsack, represented this strongly to Villiers (in a letter saying) β€˜By no means be you persuaded to interpose yourself, either by word or letter in any cause depending in any court of justice.’ Yet he had not been Lord Keeper a month when Buckingham began to interfere in Chancery suits; and Buckingham’s interference was, as might have been expected, successful. Ben Jonson comes up on a search with "woolsack". Here is one reference: https://deadpubs.co.uk/TavernsFleetstreet.shtml ...Although those inns have long been swept away, the quaint half-timbered buildings of Staple Inn remain to aid the imagination in repicturing those far-off days when the Dagger, and the Red Lion, and the Bull and Gate, and the Blue Boar, and countless other hostelries were dotted on either side of the street. With the first of these, the Dagger Tavern, we cross the tracks of Ben Jonson once more. Twice does the dramatist allude to this house in "The Alchemist," and the revelation that Dapper frequented the Dagger would have conveyed its own moral to seventeenth century playgoers, for it was then notorious as a resort of the lowest and most disreputable kind. The other reference makes mention of "Dagger frumety," which is a reminder that this house, as was the case with another of like name, prided itself upon the excellence of its pies, which were decorated with a representation of a dagger. That these pasties were highly appreciated is the only conclusion which can be drawn from the contemporary exclamation, "I'll not take thy word for a Dagger pie," and from the fact that in "The Devil is an Ass" Jonson makes Iniquity declare that the 'prentice boys rob their masters and "spend it in pies at the Dagger and the Woolsack." I must keep poking around... https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/Bran_F1/376/index.html%3Fzoom=800.html Prin. How now Woolsacke, what mntter you? Fal. A Kings Sonne? If I do not beate thee out of thy Kingdome with a dagger of Lath, and driue all thy Sub- iects afore thee like a flocke of Wilde-geese, Ile neuer weare haire on my face more. You Prince of Wales?
  5. Eric, Are there any 1500s or 1600s interesting engravings or paintings containing a woolsack besides Dugdale’s that we can look at? πŸ™‚
  6. I admit I had no idea what that meant and assumed I would need to be a Rosicrucian to understand. Looking up the definition of woolsack changed everything. πŸ˜‰ In my wildest imagination I never expected woolsack to be defined as anything related to the Lord Chancellor! Maybe because as an American these things are not mentioned in our basic education. DOH!
  7. I do not remember knowing the woolsack/Lord Chancellor connection before, but that does not mean I have never seen it. It has been mentioned on SirBacon.org and also the B'Hive. But it did not register with me. Maybe I once knew and forgot. πŸ˜‰ How many times has the Dugdale woolsack come up here with Stratfordian deception about Willy's father was a "dealer or tradesman" and that the truth is that pillow is what Bacon sat his behind on as Lord Chancellor? Wow! πŸ™‚ Thanks! Yesterday was searching Google on Virginia Fellows and was surprised at the very limited results. Today, following the woolsack theme I am revisiting some works by William Hepworth Dixon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Hepworth_Dixon In 1854 he began research on Francis Bacon. He had leave through Lord Stanley and Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton to inspect the "State Papers", until then guarded from general view by successive secretaries of state. He published four articles criticising John Campbell's Life of Bacon in the AthenΓ¦um for January 1860. These were expanded and republished as The Personal History of Lord Bacon from Unpublished Papers in 1861. He published separately as a pamphlet in 1861 A Statement of the Facts in regard to Lord Bacon's Confession, and a more elaborate volume called The Story of Lord Bacon's Life, 1862. Dixon's books on Bacon have not been valued by scholars.[1] He mentions sitting on the woolsack in 1861, "By rule of Parliament, the Lord Chancellor, and of course an inferior person acting in his place, sat on the woolsack while the Lords were in session..." Page 412: https://sirbacon.org/archives/The_Story_of_Lord_Bacon_s_Life.pdf The Dugdale sketch makes sense now. Willy Shakspur is holding Bacon's Lord Chancellor cushion in his lap! Grateful Dead: β€œOnce in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.”
  8. Christie, you state so beautifully in that comment something new to me which is a valuable point to remember: "Barry Evans, I believe it was in your first piece that you mentioned the "wool sack." I would just point out that "wool sack" is defined as: "A sack for or of wool; specifically, the seat of the English Lord Chancellor in the House of Lords, a sack of wool in shape like a divan" (Webster's Collegiate Dictionary). Was the "wool sack" meant to be a clue as to the "real Shakespeare's" identity? Well, the only Shakespeare candidate to have actually served as Lord Chancellor was Francis Bacon. This fact had not registered with me previously, so thank you." This is absolutely exciting! Made my day! https://www.wordreference.com/definition/woolsack
  9. So a spy movie where the first one had this beautiful Baconian scene is being redone right now. Is it a coincidence that A. Phoenix's and friendsofidb's Riverbank revelations came out in the recent past years? πŸ˜‰ Who is doing it? And where? (I haven't looked yet...) EDIT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amateur_(2025_film) Production Development on a new adaptation of the Robert Littell novel was first announced in November 2006, with Hugh Jackman attached to star, and Evan Katz writing the screenplay.[6] In February 2023, Hutch Parker and Dan Wilson were announced to be producing the project for 20th Century Studios with James Hawes attached as director and Rami Malek in the lead role.[2] Malek was also listed as an executive producer on the project.[7] In May, Rachel Brosnahan, Caitriona Balfe, Adrian Martinez, Laurence Fishburne, Holt McCallany and Julianne Nicholson were added to the cast.[4][3][5] Principal photography began in London in June 2023. Filming locations are scheduled for around the south-east of England, as well as France and Turkey.[8] Filming was suspended in July due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike.[9] Filming resumed by December 2023.[10][11] Release The film is scheduled to be released on April 11, 2025,[12] after having previously scheduled for release on November 8, 2024.[13] Does anybody else notice the "November 8" date as the original release date? πŸ˜‰ Wow! This movie will be a hit! How do we get in????
  10. Read our B'Hive member Christie's famous review too! πŸ™‚ https://sirbacon.org/McClinton Review Final for SirBacon 12-6-2020.pdf
  11. Lawrence and I were on a SirBacon.org phone conversation last night and the idea came up that a Global International Spy network might solve the Authorship debate while Stratfordians cling onto their last hopes. Lawrence reminded me of this clip we put up some years ago. He has an amazing memory I admire! When looked at it i felt I had to post it. πŸ™‚ My wife and I did watch the movie on a streaming service and enjoyed it, but I don’t remember much… LOL i wonder if Friedman or Riverbank came up!
  12. I hope they keep this scene in tact! πŸ™‚
  13. https://sirbacon.org/the_amateur.html I'm not sure if we've posted this before, but what a fun clip. πŸ™‚ The Amateur a dramatic film that came out in 1982 starring Christopher Plummer, John Savage, Marthe Keller, Arthur Hill, and directed by Charles Jarrott has several scenes in which Francis Bacon and Shakespeare are mentioned. The plot centers around the girlfriend of a CIA computer expert who is murdered. Her boyfriend (Savage's character) decides to doggedly hunt down her killer. In the beginning of his search the Savage character meets with CIA brass to explain how he plans to use Big Bertha, the CIA computer, to run down a facsimile of a 1586 letter from Mary Queen of Scots that portends that she is planning to murder Elizabeth 1st. Savage tells the CIA boss that he is "looking for numerical sequences, acrostics, Elizabethan substitution systems and Bacon's biliteral cyphers." Then there is a scene in which Savage attends a lecture on Shakespeare and Bacon cyphers by a university professor played by Christopher Plummer. Later the two characters meet up on a train ride sharing the same compartment. Let's pick up the conversation: The Amateur.mp4 Savage - I went to your lecture at the University the other day, at least part of it. Plummer - Ah, You are interested in the subject of Bacon versus Shakespeare? Savage - I am interested in cyphers. Plummer - You are a colleague? A visiting professor perhaps? My card, please, (reaches into his pocket) Lakosh, Antonine Lakosh. Savage - I've heard of you. Plummer - Although the Bacon Society is my avocation, my occupation is also detection, deciphering of clues, uncovering of the impostor! Savage - Search for truth. Plummer -Oh yes, How does it go? "For truth will come to light, murder cannot.... Savage - ...Be hid long. (Pause) William Shakespeare? Plummer - (slowly says) Francis Bacon.
  14. I checked the page and interesting that there are 136 words from the end of the left column on page 196 going in reverse to the "speake apace" colon. May I ask you quickly who it is, and shake a speare. 136 is the Simple cipher for BACON SHAKESPEARE. πŸ˜‰
  15. I have zero doubts that you are aware that SPEAKE APACE is 196 Reverse cipher, the same as the Simple cipher for: VVILLIAM SHAKESPEARE At first I thought it actually said SHAKE SPEARE (see below in blue)! How convenient for us that "this conceal'd man" appears in a 33 word passage following a stunning visual Lighthouse of a clue about Shakespeare! πŸ™‚
  16. Hmmm, there are 365 characters after the word alcumy*, in Sonnet 33 on this page. https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/doc/Son_Q1/page/18/index.html https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/UC_Q1_Son/14/?work=son&zoom=500 * When I typed "alcumy" above I heard "alchemy" spoken on TV while my wife is watching a Disney movie called "Up". I saw a few minutes of it earlier and told her it is about an esoteric adventure. I wondered if it was about Bacon and Shakespeare! LOL
  17. Your The Alchemical Quest game is amazing! How many times have I heard, "Who could or would take the time to weave ciphers into plays or poems?" I've done a little myself, but you demonstrate what is possible on a level that I believe Bacon and Jonson were working in. πŸ™‚ Imagine what a room full of us could create in a place like Riverbank or Gorhambury!
  18. I saw the 77 and MINERVA is not imprinted in my brain yet, even after as many times you have mentioned it! DOH! My thought was that 77 is half of 154 which is teh number of Sonnets I live in and the last line of Sonnet 77 is: https://www.light-of-truth.com/pyramid-GMT.php#Sonnet077 Shall profit thee,and much inrich thy booke. That Line is the last line of the first half of the Sonnets ending on Day 182. ONE EIGHTY TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye to Seal the first half of Bacon's Sonnets. SHALL PROFIT THEE,AND MUCH INRICH THY BOOKE is 174 Short cipher. 174 is the Simple cipher for FRANCIS BACON TUDOR. I'm still working, or trying to. But will be back... πŸ˜‰
  19. I am very thrilled to see it revived. 20 years ago I never would have expected I'd be a member. πŸ˜‰
  20. FB, its time you explain yourself. Disclose whatever it is you need to disclose. The A. Phoenix here is a man and woman team, and maybe even more involved. I suspect they are married, but definitely partners in the Baconian path. We know you dedicated your website to them as you say, "sight unseen", but as a Moderator I am feeling a little awkward if you are wishing to, in your words, "sleep in her womanly gracile arms every night " if you are referring to the A. Phoenix who is a member on this forum. Hope we do not need to ban you for stalking. So please explain what you are getting at. Thank you very much! Rob
  21. I remember this post which I never understood Posted April 19, 2024: She is our muse Athena, and only briefly once did she doff her magical military Helmet of Invisibility: the pre-publication of the new issue of Baconiana arrived, which she single-handedly brought back to life after several years of it being silent and derelict. It took a Woman to re-birth it. For a brief while a picture of her appeared there, same as all the other Authors, along with their known-to-the-world "Exoteric" names. I intentionally have forgotten hers, blanked it out of my mind, except that I remember her exoteric 'given' name is S___. Then, apparently, they-all came to their senses and censored all the Author Info for all the authors. But she told us already what her true, Spiritual name is: she is A Phoenix. That's all I know about it. Are you referring to the A. Phoenix who posts here in in the B'Hive in your "Disclosure"?
