  1. Way to go Rob!! Grate Graphic!!

    Of course Jerry Garcia's  "Shakespeare" was his lyricist,  Songwriter Hall of Famer  : Robert Hunter.


    scroll down and HEAR a short audio excerpt during a break from a radio interview where Garcia mentions what he requested for  lunch



    Garcia's humor reminds me of  the famous quote by Bacon  :

    " Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested; that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not curiously; and some few are to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.”

     I got to meet Garcia  on four different occasions throughout the decades. The last time was August '94 at the Ritz Carleton Hotel in NYC overlooking Central Park. I came prepared to give Jerry some printed excerpts from Alfred  Dodd's "Francis Bacon's Personal Life Story."  He just got up to leave  the bar with his youngest daughter, Kaelin, when I approached him with the Dodd material. I briefly told him what it was and he said he looses things on the road and it was best if I mailed it to him which meant the Grateful Dead office in San Raphael, CA.   My mind went back and forth if I should.  I decided to mail it out to him.  A few months go by and  my friend taper Todd, gave me a cassette tape that had this interview with Jerry and the mandolin player, David Grisman.  Apparently Todd did not know that there is this moment  toward the end of the recording where you hear Garcia mention what he wanted for lunch :  A Shakespeare  First Folio !  I had to play it back a few times as I thought I was well, hallucinating!   I don't know if Garcia ever  got to read the Dodd material but he was well read and had a large appetite for  all knowledge.  Indeed, What a long strange trip it's been. And lastly :

    Check out the Grateful Bacon Acrostic

  2. Thanks Rob for pointing it out! .Yes it is the same material, I forgot that our Late and Great friend to sirbacon Glen Glaston from New Mexico, digitized the work and sent me the printed copy back that he borrowed. Glenn was a very interesting man who I met  for several days in Albuquerque  in 2006.  His actual name was Timothy Rayhel. You can read about him here



    He was once in US Military Intelligence, loved motorcycles and of course was a great enthusiast of Francis Bacon. He  generously contributed  his time to meticulously  digitizing many other Bacon related works (Northumberland Manuscript book on sirbacon)  and at one time maintained his own  online Bacon B hive that was short lived. 

    I believe it was Peter Dawkins' friend, Steve Marble who gave me my copy of  the printed English translation of Cryptomenytices  Cryptographia.

  3. DSC_8118.jpegDSC_8117.jpegDSC_8115.jpegDSC_8113.jpegI  just remembered that I have an English Translation of Cryptomenytices Cryptographia that's been sitting in the top of my closet for years. Would be great if someone like John Torbert who digitized the entire  Baconiana Collection would be interested in doing the same. Anyone have any suggestions ? The three volumes together contain  under 600 pages. It belongs on sirbacon and archive.org.

  4. The US Flag Bacon painting was owned by Manly P. Hall and his wife Marie.  I used to be able to visit their home in LA and that's where I first set sights on the  uplifting painting. Before Marie passed on she gave the painting to a mutual friend and so I got to photograph it many times. Because of the new interest about the painting and the Red Cross Bacon image I have sent an email about the two images to my friend that still owns the painting. I am also encouraging my friend to join us here in the Forum.  It's been a while and I don't remember the origins or who the artists were. When I hear back from my friend, I'll share back what I discover.

  5. That 100 C Degree heat in England is producing honey in the B Hive.  Wow Kate, I just had an Advancement of Learning watching myself dissolve  my own compounds  while viewing  your MOST Excellent  Video "CRYPTOGRAPHY: The Biliteral Cipher Reveals the True Author of Shakespeare's Sonnets. "

    After 33 years I am finally illuminated regarding the Biliteral Cipher thanks to your Brilliant video. Truth has Come to Light ! Thank You!

  6. In the early 90's I interviewed Maureen Ward Gandy one of the top Graphologists in England. She was brought to my attention by Francis Carr who found out about a discovered manuscript thought to be  from the 1590's and the play Henry IV. https://sirbacon.org/links/handwriting1.html

    The quality of the video may not be that good but here's about 4 minutes of Maureen Ward Gandy pointing out the similiarities between Bacon''s handwriting and this Henry IV manuscript.

  7. The piece of handwriting I believe she is referring to that is possibly William Shakspere's is from HAND D of Sir Thomas More. It was established erroneously by the British Library and behind closed doors without a major public notice or a visual demonstration. They are not very good at faking the fake. But interesting youtube video for sure. Thanks Kate for sharing!

  8. Thank You Christie for first turning me onto Brian McClinton's  great book and for sending me a copy of it and for your Book Review.  We will add  http://irishfreethinkers.com/dynamic_content.php?id=160  

    the link to his book in the Biblio section as well.
    From the book :

    ".....To the living we owe Respect,

    but to the dead we owe only the Truth. "- Voltaire

  9. Surprising it took me 25 years to find out about the genius of Francis Bacon and  J Bate. Would love for Bate to take the bait and read AP's groundbreaking book on the Fraudulent Friedmans

  10. Something stirred in me A.P.  by your appropriate  Kenneth Patton quote. It was the same feeling after having read Nieves Mathews Vindication book, "FB History of a Character Assassination."

     You have synthesized  the loose ends from many competent Baconians over the decades  who offered valid criticism of the  Friedman  book. Back in 1957 no one would challenge a WWII codebreaker certainly not the media.  Like AthenA you brandished a Spear with a Thunderbolt smashing the curse of the Friedman's legacy in one fell swoop. Your impeccable research and consistently outstanding presentations have  brought forth a voice of Clarity that can now end  the frustration, the inexpressible disbelief and confusion and the paradoxical nature of the  Friedmans'  intentions.  Friedman has been fried and  It's been a long time coming. 

    Your research is a victory for not just Baconians but for everyone who has a passion to see  Honesty and  Truth restored to for all those who have been ridiculed unfairly by those  who blindly trumpeted their many falsehoods upon those who had a sincere and dedicated passion for cipher and truth. So many people have been fooled by the Friedmans who did not know any better and could not make the distinctions to see thru the limitations of their research. People gave their allegiance to a  world renowned cipher authority and his puffed up credential based on  his work in helping save the world from evil despots. Critical thinking was bypassed in favor of a belief that this man based on  his war record knew what he's talking about so we should just accept his opinion as the work of God.  Most people  especially in the media didn't question his results and just accepted it as he must know what he's talking about after all he's William Friedman, hero code breaker.

    But now Friedman is no longer a hero in the world of Shakespeare and Ciphers thanks to your astute research. His reputation is now tarnished and his name will be synonymous  with all the small time hustlers and Shakespeare forgers like William Henry Ireland, and the low life  slander critics like Macaulay.

    The questions remain on how a respected authority in his field of cipher would betray his own mind by refuting his prior  convictions that Shakespeare ciphers exist and keep it  hidden from the public record.  What motivated him to play his Jekyll to his Hyde? Would he and his publisher, Cambridge University, find greater revenue from book sales by supporting the false narrative of the Stratford myth? Does it come down to that? Money over  Conscience and Truth? How can it be possible for a man to play both sides of the coin, to publicly dismiss an idea while practicing that same idea into action? How can the same man once with a conscience who held the keys to quickening the end of a World War and it's evil perpetrators and  having endured sleepless nights,  long bouts of depression eventually sell out his reputation and  all that is Good? 
    We now have Vindication from your research and we still  need Closure from this Tragic miscarriage of a trusted man's conscience gone awry. Some how some  day maybe we can see the Comedy of the Friedman Folly.

  11. Boteswain! A tremendous labor of love  and  a new Comprehensive masterpiece jewel by the a.phOeNix team. Congratulations to them and to the rest of us for now being able to read and enjoy the Videos of it's long awaited contents and understand the  hidden complexity of the Friedman's on a deeper level. It seems that the Friedman's were unwittingly or not  practicing the double sided nature  of the "Janus" head motif. On one hand they obfuscate the truth (the Fraud) and on the other hand as demonstrated by APhoenix team the Friedman book is embedded with intentional  Bacon related ciphers (Hidden Truth) along with their own gravestone design including a famous Bacon quote! This leads to further inquiry to Re Examine whether or not the Folger Library  the resource center for the Friedmans book is really a Rosicrucian institution with a concealed agenda?  This is the heart of Bacon's mentality where he sees the  Antithetical  nature in all things and processes.
