  1. There's a problem with that. There are literally millions of expressions that you can show give you 186, or any other number for that matter. A two-fold correspondence with another similar numbering scheme still doesn't get you anywhere close to showing a 1:1 relationship between symbol and meaning. You'd need to claim you know it applies. It's impossible to convert a number/symbol to a single meaning. 186th day converts precisely to (7 day/week x 26 weeks) +4 days. The Freemasonic tradition evens gives you the fact that it is days that are the unit which 186 relates to. July 4th, 1776 was day 186. You only have to compare that to the existing Masonic iconography to see that the 4 x 27 is the perfect ashlar of Freemasonry. Day 186 has a perfect day connotation. I don't even know why you would question it and desire to subjugate that with speculations based in Shakespeare stuff. The 108, if it comes from anywhere with familiarity, is from geometry. It's the interior angle of the pentagon. That makes it a close cousin to the five pointed star and an excellent avenue to suggest that DeVere's impeccable personal character was the model for Freemasonry and the United States (a five pointed star is on his coat of arms after all). lol Why the polygon with 5 sides ought to matter has to do with the fact that everything on this old Earth was believed to be a representation of the quaternary (principle 4, square). Once you are into the higher polygons you are dabbling in other worldly, spiritual sounding suggestions.
  2. 3 x 62 is 186. Don't you have a thing for that number? It's a July 5th suggestion isn't it? On July 5th 1610, John Guy's expedition of 40 colonists left England to colonize Newfoundland. He got the 3 cents denomination in the stamp series that has Bacon on the 6 cents. Guy settled at Cuper's Cove colony on behalf of the Society of Merchant Venturers as a result of the work of the expeditions of Gilbert (whom Dee had trained in Geometry prior to his expeditions) to claim the land for Elizabeth I in previous voyages. The place is called Cupids, Newfoundland, today. On day 186 in 1776, July 4th, (it was a leap year) the 13 colonies declared their independence from England. In Freemasonry, this day has the peculiar, but understandable reputation of being the 4th day of the 27th week. 4x27 is by definition the perfect ashlar's perimeter (108). We should notice that Guy being 3 and Bacon 6 has some potential for recognition. Together that is 36 and 36x3 is 108. 3x6=18, and that is relevant to Dee's "art of perfect navigation" scheme due to the 18 being the compliment of the 72 degrees which is the constant heading of this standard rhumb line (loxodrome). It all stinks of Freemasonic involvement. Stinks may be too strong a word. "Influenced" is better.
  3. I'm certainly not done exploring this. The relationship of those six points, being not arbitrary, will likely serve the "paradoxal compass" navigational idea, imo. Look what I noticed about these points. You can use all point to define a circle (EFD definin an arc), G allows a line through E that intersects a line from H through D at point I which shows a 90 degree angle. This makes line GC intersect a parallel of GE going at FL. That intersecting point is the Apex of the A again. By doing this we define a 90,50,40 triangle IGH. This appear too regular and involving of A to be uninteresting. The circle bisects the word TERRA in two letter halves. I also like that it bisects GENIO, lol. Are we looking at a globe suggestion? "Terra Tegit" is a TT suggestion that translates to" Earth Covers". Does it cover some truth as some have alleged this line in the plaque might be written to suggest: The Earth coves (a truth), the people are bereaved (of the truth) and Olympus knows (the truth). The third letter of Olympus is intersected. The "Y" is a steganographic triangle/trinity suggestion. Is the center of this circle the North pole of a flat stereographic projection of the sort is suggested in Sylva Sylvarum? What of that A apex then? What would it give? Lots to look at.
  4. N-2 steps, N being the number of points. You will get the regular N-gon from the translation which will be placed in space in such a way that it will conserve the centroid position
  5. I think it like a serious "glitch in the Matrix", so to speak, lol. It's so elegant it kinds blows one away at first. I only had a vague recollection of how to find a centroid in an irregular shape, and it wasn't this way. With Geogebra you can certainly have fun with it by dropping random points and transforming them into their corresponding regular polygons. The point is not to have done it to impress us, though. I would appear it was done to call attention to that A again. I kid you not, but the more you play with this the more you will start to see how straightforward this is to do. You' ll get an intuitive sense of why it works after a while. Reading the Wiki on centroids is illuminating too. Someone had to first notice this spatial conformality, and it's not a surprise to me that it was the Greeks as they were all over polygonal geometry. It makes you wonder what else was in Archimedes' books that are lost to us. Doing it with a triangle is something you can get a 6th grader to do. I'm pretty sure you can easily make them understand that averages are things that can be represented with geometry. The frequency of the letters F and B just came out of the larger look I had at that English text. Once I noticed that there were 33 letters on the first line and a 3 line symmetry of 110 in the 6 I strongly suspected that there was something else hiding deeper in the bushes. If you ask enough of the right questions (the type that can be answered) once and a while some get spectacularly answered and they lead to the next round of questions. There is also the ordinal positions of these 6 letters which I have said noting about. I'm, still considering that. I'm now highly suspicious that these six points have a geographic counterpart, because a centroid probably only ever mattered to someone as a way to find a geographic center on a map. Imagine a polygon made of all the points corresponding to the visible stars in the sky and ask yourself if someone didn't come to the conclusion that the centroid was at the North Star position. They would almost have to make that sort of equivalence seeing how special that point would have appeared to them (everything turning about it as if it was perfectly placed somehow in balance with everything else). That gets one thinking of the precession cycle and fact that that there are 5 of these North star positions that we keep revisiting. The next one will be in Cygnus. This 5 is again a call to the pentagonal geometry and the angle of 72 degrees. It's likely because of 72 that its complimentary angle 18 makes an appearance. Everything I have presented are my personal observations, I don't present other people's ideas as mine. I will sometime consider people's observations if I feel they are have not been followed to a fitting end. In this case I just counted, was taken by that peculiarity and asked what else it could possibly lead to.
  6. There are six lines of text in the bottom of this plaque that are written in English. One can divide the 6 lines in 2 halves (top and bottom). The first line has a suspicious 33 letters in it. Each half has 110 letters for a total of 220. The number 220 is relatable to the period of the Great Trigon. It is also a 4x55 suggestion. With these oddities in mind I considered the letter frequencies in this 220 letter arrangement as it would appear to be a possible "holder" of information. What has come out of that is the observation that two letters, F and B are the only ones with a frequency of 3. That caught my attention as potentially "signaling". I've tagged each above. Visually these appear to be on the periphery. They allow for a closed irregular polygon to be constructed. The logical question I was faced with is how could any shape like this be informing us of anything if it was the carrier of empiric information. There are 6 points and no obvious way to identify a center or common point of relation to all points. I decided to look into this to see how one would go about this today. The question I am asking can be reframed by asking "what is the centroid of this irregular polygon". The question most definitely has an answer using Cartesian coordinates. However, this was not available to Tudor minds yet. The task does have a geometric equivalent. There is a trick, known to the Greeks for small polygons, that involves translation of points by way of repeated recalculating of arithmetic means between apex points. By doing so one can convert any number of points forming an irregular polygon into an equivalent regular polygon which easily has its center found by simply finding the arithmetic mean of its symmetrical apexes which will meet at the center. Is the method easy? Easy as pie. Is there evidence it was used? Yes, and quite a lot for triangles up to pentagons if you go back to ancient sources. The interesting thing is that the demonstration of this was lost and only rediscovered in much more recent times by a Czech mathematician named Petr. Since then it has affectionately been called Petr's miracle. I will not describe the "miracle", but you should certainly watch this video about it. PETR'S MIRACLE: Why was it lost for 100 years? (Mathologer Masterclass) (youtube.com) The application of the method allows us to transform our 6 irregularly placed points in 4 steps. Each step will modify the polygon and translate it ever closer towards a regular equivalent. That looks like this in this case: The end result in in blue. What is paramount here is that one realizes that all the steps produce shapes that are equal in that they have the same centroid. By getting to the regular shape in 4 steps one gains the ability to easily determine its position without Cartesian coordinates. Just draw segments from the opposing apexes of the blue hexagon to get the center. Are we any richer for doing this? Yes, in fact we discover something quite unexpected. The centroid of the FB points is the same as the center of the rectangular frame of the plaque. That center is the apex of the A in SH(A)KSPEARE. How likely is his to have happened by chance? It did not. For anyone who would want to verify this I have the geogebra file to share which allows the dynamic shifting of these points in order to visualize what happens to the centroid. It moves according to one's choices of letter positions. Since the point of the A is quite specific as a pointer you easily move from it. That's great on one level, but it really only leads us to the next question which is why signal the apex of the A? To answer that question one has to have already worked out that the SHA here is contained within the Vesica that is given by the four circle geometry in that plaque. That Vesica is involving the H of the SHA through it's median. This has a definite feeling of a two center solution. I suspect that the two center solution resides in the fact that SHA is the S(olomon)-H(iram) A(biff) pair. These are the two KINGS (Hiram of Tyre and Solomon) who came together and allowed for THE TEMPLE to be constructed in the Hebrew Story recalled in the Bible. As I have quoted elsewhere from Hamlet: "If Circumstances leade me, I will finde Where truth is hid, though it were hid indeede Within the Center" The truth in the center here is contained in the Vesica at the center of the four circle arrangement AND in the centroid of the FB 33 solution. It is a Masonic riddle, in a sense. As great as the Temple was it was made by the cooperation of men who had different ideas of God. One had Baal as a God and one had Jahweh (almost opposites). In the more modern Masonic tradition On was included (Sun God). For a Freemason, the creator concept can be encapsulated by the word JahBalOn which has a few variations. It is a creative force that has at least those three in it. The Holy Royal Arch tradition used O,O,O as a symbol of it. Other symbolism was used. The eyes of the owl O,O have been used for two of the aspects. 0 to Dee was T, so we get an Enochian TTT out of three 0s. I like Herge's treatment of it as the contribution of the three masts (tees) become one in the light and show us the way to the treasure of the lost inheritance. It is difficult to ascribe an author to this plaque without involving early Freemasons who appear to be signaling something with FB 33. SHA has an empirical component. It is 18-8-1 which points us to the 18,81,81 isosceles triangle. It was used likely as a cue to Dee's reference rhumb with its Beta spiral angle of 72 degrees. (90-72=18 degrees that is referenced from a latitude line like the equator like I often do). In all this is recalled the perfection of ten and the divine proportion of Phi in the plan. With careful consideration one can work back to Dee's invention of the paradoxal compass (a beam compass) and see how legitimate scientific inquiry was trying to align itself with Biblical stories for the benefit of one unifying presentation. With this in mind it has been possible to look back at some of the things I have considered and notice how cleverly a "SHA" line is placed in the text in the visuals which completely went unnoticed. On the "eternity line" demo that Rob made elsewhere. The SHA line is right there forming an angle with it. Both the SHA lien and the eternity spiral lead to N(north). You can it here starting with the S of Sonnets: It forms the 40,60,80 triangle which houses the Cross in Cygnus, and true to form involves the Apex of the A and goes through two points. Above it I highlighted SWAN which is fact the constellation associated with the 60 degree corner of the 40,60,80 triangular asterism in the sky in zenith above the Mahone Bay point. The SHA line was given here with a 60 degree angle from horizontal. That 60 is always a hexagonal geometry cue. It's no coincidence that we were given 6 FB points, I would argue. The odd thing for me is: was Bacon given the 6 cents denomination on the Newfoundland stamp because Freemasons "lobbied" for that? Could very well be. There were a number of denominations in that series of stamps to select from. Freemasons in these parts were once more common than swans are in London.
  7. That something would be books. He was likely doing what we are doing, trying to make sense of what he was reading from sources he was getting familiar with. In a sense this is an age of rediscovery which led to the launching of a new age of discovery. A lot of the concepts are geometric. They were brought in to try and solve real world problems like navigation. The idea of the "middle way" is showing signs of being related to ideas about the means (what we would call averages). One can solve a great many problems with them. From Hamlet: "If circumstances lead me, I will find Where truth is hid, though it were hid indeed Within the centre." From Wikipedia: "...the center of gravity of figures was studied extensively in Antiquity; Bossut credits Archimedes (287–212 BCE) with being the first to find the centroid of plane figures, although he never defines it.[4] A treatment of centroids of solids by Archimedes has been lost.[5] It is unlikely that Archimedes learned the theorem that the medians of a triangle meet in a point—the center of gravity of the triangle—directly from Euclid, as this proposition is not in the Elements. The first explicit statement of this proposition is due to Heron of Alexandria (perhaps the first century CE) and occurs in his Mechanics. It may be added, in passing, that the proposition did not become common in the textbooks on plane geometry until the nineteenth century." The centroid is something I feel we can show he was dabbling in. In geography this is found in the concept of the geographical center of a land mass, for example. What is the geographical center of North Americ, BTW? Could you estimate it if I gave you a 6 point irregular polygon that roughly contains it? The answer to that would be: yes, if you could express what I gave you in the form of an equivalent regular hexagon. Then the task is incredibly simple. You'd just find the intersecting middle points (arithmetic average) of the opposing apexes. The Shakespeare funerary plaque shows signs of this, especially the bottom rectangle of text written in English. There are 6 letter positions corresponding to 3 occasions of FB pairs that give us an irregular hexagon within the frame. When we resolve this hexagon to find its centroid we find that was made to have it coincide with the easily found center of the rectangular frame (intercept of the mean of the the two opposing apex pairs. That would want to suggest to us that the answer is to be found in this "centre". It corresponds with the apex of the A in "SHA". SHA is the rhumb by which the sailor sails, guided by the star. HA in this expression likely is pointing us to Hiram Abif (from the S(olomon) H(iram) A(bif) pair responsible for the constructiom of The Temple. Who is the A? Abif is "the father". Hiram's father's name is a name that point to Baal as being father. For Solomon it was Jahweh. What allowed the Temple to be built was the unifying effort of two kings representing two God concepts. Freemasonry would later enlarge that to include On and present us with JahBalOn as a concept. Those are the 0-0-0. In Dee's Enochian that is written T-T-T if the 0 be a zero. "The truth is hid within the father" is the other aspect of the paradoxal compass business that is not empirical. Your moral compass is to be set by the tables of the father (which you should memorize). They are a chiral pair we call the two rectangles on which the LAW was given, in ten points of law. These laws were cultural laws that have made it to us. I know, it's disappointing as a result for all those who seek gold nuggets. To have to unravel all this clever puzzling to then be pointed to what the zealot would just offer you to believe in without evidence is a bit of a bummer. Dee, for his part, thought he was producing the evidence to show that God was detectable in the nature of the creation where there were signs of an empiric architecture. Things like the magnetic force were relaying the evidence, and these things were totally unexplained at this time. They were massless, bodiless forces capable of telling us something like Godly whispers. The most reasonable explanation for Shakespeare's production is that he was buying and reworking plays produced by others who were among the best in their areas of expertise. Others were doing it and outdoing the original writers with the popularity of their plays (maybe they were just loading the popcorn with butter, lol). Many interests would have aligned in having this be done, and the average is what we got. It is so well balanced in its output as to be pleasing to everyone. There is deep stuff there and there is folky, hokey stuff (shits and giggles). The balance is quite pleasing. I'm OK with no one agreeing on who wrote Shakespeare. That's not the important question. It may not have a clear answer that would satisfy anyone who wants a single attribution.
  8. 42 panes with center symmetry. 2x21. That's VV to Dee and a nice W suggestion for the Winchester home. The center window is displaying 7:4 height to width. That means there is an intersecting pair of 55 degree base angles in an isosceles triangle there. The base angles will sum to 111. Edit: I don't know what I was thinking when I did the maths here. The base corner angle in the 7:2 half rectangle is 74 degrees. I must have been half aspleep in my chair. It looks like I took the inverse cosine of 7:4 (?). It immediately stood out as incorrect when I looked at it this morning.
  9. That (inside-outsidedness) should be evident by how the window is glazed. The side pair appear to be chiral again. That's always important to note. You're about to turn me into a Winchester puzzle solver!
  10. For me who is more interested in working back ideas to a source I am quite happy to be able to get this to pre Bacon publications where there are echoes of this in it and as far back as Dee's paradoxal compass. It satisfies me greatly to have a demonstrable explanation for the Mahone Bay point that is in something tangible (part of a scientific effort) employing a reference rhumb line that is dividing the globe in a well divided 5 turns of the screw. It (art of navigation) could easily have have been understood by sailors or Masons alike. It alleges to allow two sorts of navigation, one that is practical and one that is spiritual. In both instance we can see how it works as a numerical/empirical treatment. In this case, it is not an Oxfordian feather in their cap, but do not forget that they pretty much claim Dee as theirs anyway. I'm going to post what I produced using "Petr's miracle". I think that is useful to Baconians because of how the Shakespeare plaque was done. The block of text that is in two 110 letter halves (period of one Great Trigon=220) has only two letters in the 220 that appear thee times. F and B. This is a clever 33 hint which I see no way of transferring to DeVere for those who think all instances of 33 as his signatures. As you know, treating the letter positions by simple geometry gets us focused on the "Sha" which is there in the Vesica stumping for the 18-8-1. I've not been a big fan of he authorship squabbles, but I did read a paper the other night about the circumstantial evidence showing that Shakespeare (and Marlowe) were clever young upstarts who purchased plays from established sources and rewrote them quite cleverly. Marlowe died young, murdered. Most of these young "theater" based entrepreneurs did not live to be very old. They made enemies by suggesting things, and I suppose they also could have made friends. I see a way where a lot of people could have been involved. Some of the stuff I've seen from Oxfordians is "checkers" compared to a what "chess" it is possible to do much more reliably. It's not about winning a PR effort, though. They are not the enemy. They are just among those who are already convinced of something nobody has reliably established. All of a sudden I have much more interest in the claims that Dee's Enochian language is about relaying more than just things on an esoteric nature. There is no explanation for the larger numbers he shows an interest and the letter symbolism he uses to express them. I may look into it. I have idea bout some things. It seems to be all related to number theory.
  11. I see you posted this thing we considered a while back. You asked me then about the N which gets spiraled to. That's N(orth) in real terms. The inspiration is from the rhumb line (loxodrome). The loxodrome on the globe is an infinite spiral that reaches from the S to the North pole. It appears on Mercator maps as a straight line (by definition) that goes off the page and starts up at the same latitude on the other. Dee appears to have defined a reference loxodrome this way: This is a Mercator map showing lat. 85N to lat. 85 S. This is typical representation of the range of this sort of map. The whole thing falls apart at the polls as it becomes impossible to represent infinitely converging meridians on a globe with a flat projection (the top and bottom of the page would stretch into infinity). We can ask ourselves what Dee's rationale for choosing this. If you examine closely you will see that the spiral goes 5 times around the Earth here. 5 is the root of a polygon, a pentagon, which defines the logarithmic spiral you drew which is based in Phi. 90 degrees of latitude was divided in 5 and that 18 degrees was settled to be his Beta complementary angle (which gets conserved on Mercator maps). Knowing of this simple arithmetic he appears to reached for a very significant global marker to be a start to his hemispheric treatment. That's his starting point. As it turn out, using the delta region (Cairo) sends you right though the Pillars. How fortunate, and what a pleasant thing to be given to exploit in art on both those ends. Obviously, it also defines a North American intercept. Looking for an explanation for the Mahone Bay point without the proper context has been navigating a minefield of suggestions. By pure geometry alone one can show that this will involve 44.4 N and 66.6 W of Paris (or about). It is the Bay itself that must have first stood out. Fine tuning of a numerological connection is refined when 44.4 and 66.6 are chosen from what is available there. 40 percent of 111 is 44.4. Both lat. and long. sum to 111. Both are in the Pythagorean harmonic 3:2 proportion. We should note that the arithmetic was only made workable when the longitude was referenced to Paris. It wasn't that he was hiding anything. Elegance and numerology just asked that the number be 66.6 to involve the 44.4 and 111. That's got a stellar equivalent in the constellation of Cygnus when one turns to the celestial bodies to try and reflect the story there. As a starting point, the constellation must be Triangulum, the Deltoton of the Greeks, which Dee took as his signature in his Monad Hieroglyphica. There are two celestial triangles on both ends. The Apex of the Delta is the point (an upside down triangle atop the Nile). Triangulum is also perfectly suited to present us with the 18,81,81 triangle. The reason he did it isn't even esoteric. His paradoxal compass (the actual tool) was a version of a beam compass. It was taking measurement of the Sun's position magnetically (he describes this). The Mercator map cannot show you a flat spiral, but a stereographic projection can. We were given that by Bacon in the Sylva Sylvarum image, so he is telling you something by showing it in prominence. The globe is specifically shown as a flat plane projection. This should not be mistaken for a globe. It is a circular flat map which is showing hemispheric positions radially. On such a flat projection the loxodrome and the Mercator straight line becomes a flat logarithmic spiral. This allows a direct referencing of Sun position with the use of the same projection showing Sun path data (taken from tables). Dee loved his tables. We can see now how all this came together as a method. You know your latitude easily by taking sextant readings. You measured the Sun's position relative to you with a magnetic compass at a time and date that would get referenced. This would give you your radial position on the spiral. That radial position is also informing you of your longitude as all movements up and down the spiral have different longitude components. The idea belongs to a Portuguese man, Pedro Nunes. He apparently developed some of these ideas with Mercator. It is Dee's personal connection to Mercator that allowed Dee to invent this device as early as 1553. Anyway, what a sleuthing job. The SHA alignment is empirically relevant as well as being esoterically informed. We can say that because Dee was quite convinced that magnetism was some cosmic spiritual force and that it was telling him the Sun's position. You can start to see the beginnings of a seed idea about the being able to speak with the natural world through "angels". The angel in the compass is relating him an angle if you like word games. It makes complete sense that Bacon works are pointing to this. Time was the thing that was going to unlock longitude and it is tables of the sighting of the Sun's tracking that where going to deliver time. This may be exactly what there was a tower built at Rhode Island to map the daily Sun's position through windows. When you know it at one location you can shift it a bit to others easily enough. It makes a great sense that it would have faded into obscurity because this was not an easy way to determine longitude. Magnetic readings are wildly fluctuating too. It is infinitely more complicated than just having a good reliable clock. Reliability of observational data likely doomed this method. Longitude was only ever cracked with Harrison's nautical timepiece in the 1760s.
  12. It's still unclear to me. I've zoomed in and that does appear to not be small circles to make it add to 13. There are 11 circles and 2 tiny pentagons (straight line shapes) to sum to 13. I don't think we should count the straight line shapes that are circle-like (centers of web are two more). If we did that would make 15 which is a perfectly fine number to suggest the worldly/Earthly on the left side of the Tetractys. 13 would be fine too, as there would be the 8 and 5 which is a the core of the mystery of 40. 8,5 and 13 are three consecutive Fibonacci numbers that give us increasingly better approximations of Phi. 8/5=1.6; 13/8=1.625. Twenty was one of Dee's pet numbers. It's the next one in line 21/13=1.615. Yellow (3) and blue (5) are the predecessors of 5 and 8 as Fibonacci numbers. There are all preceded by 112, and that could be cleverly given as 11 and 2. This window may work on many levels. Let's assume each yellow shape is 3 and every blue one is 5. That would be 8x3=24 ; 5x5=25. That would be consecutive numbers that sum to a square. The are 10 square numbers up to 100 and only 4 of those have that property. That's another 4 and 10 suggestion. You could probably go nuts with this. There are two spiral suggestions in that window. The top one has 40 individual pieces of glass in it. The other 20. That the 20:40 mystery well represented. TT and TTTT. That was also present in the left side window of the pair we looked at before. Death and resurrection suggestion...From ordered life to disordered dust, back to ordered something with a return to the IOD.
  13. I see only 6 yellow and 5 blue circles. 2 colors summing to 11. The 22 given in relation to the order created by the spider's web (it apparently informs itself on geometric principles). "Ordo ab Chao". The colors are symbolic as they are position holders in the 7 that are in order in the rainbow. Yellow is 3 (giving us 36), Blue is 5 (giving us 55). Together they are 91 which is the cycle which completes itself with the last step being the return to the monad (iod). How many sections on glass in total? I get dizzy trying to count them. Will have another go at it.
  14. Thank you for the high resolution image. It has perspective in it, so It's not ideal. It is still possible to zoom in quite a bit and make some primitive adjustments to enable a consideration. It would appear to me that these windows are five overlapping circles apart (should be able to confirm this with measurements). Using five gives a symmetry about a circle which is probably concentric with the square mantle above the fireplace. Where the Shakespeare plaque shows 4 with a symmetrical and central Vesica this arrangement has two central Vesicas on each half of the circle. This appears to have hinted at by the double Vesica suggestion in the windows. For consideration purposes these windows can be examined as if touching or as if 1,2 or 3 circles apart. Is the central mirror the same size as the two windows brought together? That would be interesting because there would be a 4:3 proportion suggested that is mirroring the 3:4 suggestion on the floor. The quarternary and the ternary are in the 10 (perfection). The 72 degree isosceles triangle suggestion that comes out of the windows is also a cue to 5 as 5x72=360 degrees which is the circle. I wouldn't obsess over this gridding. It is not perfect, but it probably giving us the correct large scale plan which should be verified. What does come out of this is that there are 11 windows worth of spacing. 2 of those are accounted for. The 2 and 11 we can begin to think of as the 22 which is the chaos at the beginning. Placing 5 circles here may be an attempt to inject the idea that two people once came together as one. Is there a love story attached to the Winchester story?
  15. The true motives are what is hardest to show as there isn't a way inside a person's head. We are stuck trying to work back the origin of the ideas that may have "seized" individuals. When examining what has become someone's obsession we're always going to be faced with a lot of human effort which speaks to us by suggesting: this person must have been on to something. That may be just an appearance. How does one make order out of the mess that is all the possible paths in our thinking? One way is that you can compartmentalize it. Sarah's house is an external representation of what it can be like to map out your thinking faculty. One can identify "doors to nowhere" in such a house and safe rooms. There are pathways through the house, that if regularly taken lead to positive outcomes.
  16. The frame is you mean? Or is it the room? That would mean the frame would be centered in the rectangular room. The borders of the frame appear to be indexed, allowing one to verify that the frame is in proportion 3:4. Are those windows facing East?
  17. I'd have to know the distances. Do not discount that there could be four circles worth of space there. That is what I keep seeing (there's a reason for this). I treated the windows as if they were part of one circle. You can treat the windows as touching or with integer numbers of circles between them. The theme in all this is four. But, really this is a story about 1,2,3,4 and ultimately 5 (which is not of this world). 5 gets reserved for the sublime and the other realm. You can get that sense from the 72 degree angle that give us the Golden Triangle which is used to present the masonic spiral and the ram's horns that, incidentally show up when you bring the windows together. I think you're seeing a Geo-demonstration here that is based on a standard loxodrome that Dee reasoned out when he developed his paradoxal compass device. I'm going to post about this shortly. "This small world" was imagined to be reflecting a Macrosom that had it well established numerology. Some of Dee's choices are not arbitrary, and it is these non arbitrary choices that he made that convinced him and others that the coincidences had to mean something. He's not wrong. It is as if this world was made to be described best by 9 digits and 4 dimensions. When I say 4 circles I mean this arrangement:
  18. Neat result when we treat both windows as one. The only square given in the image is the middle pane of each window. Based on that we can determine what 3 x 3 of those would represent as the area of a unit square. The ratio of the double window (in red) to the unit square is 0.62:1. The square is approx. Phi times larger than the red double window rectangle. One can draw the circle around the square to see how that comes and intersects the double window at the points, H, L, U and T. There's a cleaver way to incorporate 2/3=0.6667 and 0.444444 by a couple of relationships of 90 to 40 and 111 to 40. Within the double window there is an 8:5 cross. That makes it a cousin to Nolan's cross suggestion on OI. Where the top stone angle to the arm end is 22.22 degrees. All this arithmetic around 40 is informing a whole bunch of stuff that is used to plan with, IMO.
  19. Good. It means you looked to see what was obviously given. One must start with what is most obvious and not invent points. The exercise is to find the relationship in them. It becomes obvious when you notice you are looking at a chiral pair that you' ll face some isosceles triangles. There' s still some work to do with this. I suspect "the little world" has something to show us. Dee's spiral, for example starts somewhere. It ends at the North pole, but what else is given to us by him that has travelled in time to be presented to us as if to show someone knew and remembered. I'm extremely suspicious that these schemes lived on in Freemasonry to be used without much knowledge of where they may have originated. As always, the punchline is almost always a point of Christian belief married to some empiric idea. Something one can do here is marry the two windows and consider the rectangle it produces. It's going to be less that 2/3 of the are of a square? Will it be 0.625 of it? I'll be curious to see.
  20. Someone who is looking at a plan on paper can see from a bird's eye view. Did that never occur to you? lol. To be able to do good work obvious things must first be realized. A question mark is definitely not something they were going after. We most certainly could try and work out what was attempted by looking at the radial lines of the garden divisions. They had a rectangle to work with. Someone likely treated it in a regular way. Does it have esoteric meaning? I'm afraid so, because "sacred geometry" is just geometry. Dividing a rectangle in two is a sacred act in homage to high symmetry. Planning is a spiritual act if you believe in God. At the date specified there was still much pride in respecting conventions. Head on over to London and see how the best of the best, the Burtons planned. They were consumed with the esoteric, and big supporters of the first Francis Bacon society I should add. That's Constance Pott's family you know.
  21. There are 8 points in each, and they are symmetrically given from a center between the windows. 4 of them are on an arc in each window. Only the center portions of the windows are square. See if you can deduce why. At the center of the Vesica is chaos symbolized by 22. The suggestion here is that the 22 letters were used to construct the word which is the light. You access the light by unclasping the book, but you must live by it. There's a "this little world reference" here that makes the hidden circle a globe suggestion. Paired with the golden triangle, you are encountering the suggestion that this world was constructed with the divine proportion. In theory you should always be able to exploit Phi to locate a point on it by using Dee's paradoxal compass which is exploiting a swirling spiral that goes round and round to the North pole. I like to think of this stained glass pair as a "know thyself" type of visual suggestion. Know what is your place in the world and in the grand scheme of things.
  22. What looks like random spots in a window are actually a symmetrical pair. One is greatly helped by realizing that 4 of the points on the left are exactly on an arc. This means that there is a circle which unites both if we place the right window at an appropriate distance. 86 again in the form of an angle created. Rob's 2nd favorite triangle makes an appearence too (golen triangle suggestion). The ratio of side to base in it is Phi, by definition. Nice 33 too. More to come regarding this "puzzle". Obviously there is Dee's X (cross) here which is his Enochian letter for the number 10. 6:8:10 I tell you. lol 6 is for the circle, 8 for infinity and 10 the perfection of the cross. The golden triangle presents us with the 1:2:2 proportion. Regarding the book, the Hebrew alphabet is made up of 22 letters, which are used to compose the Word of God. The word of God is called a lamp, thus it is the light by which we are to live. In James (twin) 1:22 it is given: "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says" That's a very Masonic thing to want to pass on.
  23. You can do better than that. I'll help you get started. There's an obvious relationship between these points owing to lines going though them coinciding with points on the edge of the frame, and there are parallels. There are 8 dots and 5 Tees in this panel. That's our old 8x5=40 suggestion where 8/5=1.6, the approximation of Phi (golden proportion). The other panel has 8:6 suggested. That's likely not a coincidence. Those two, with that perfect ten form the Pythagorean triple, 6-8-10. It's 100 (cross) expressed as the sum of squares. Its also, as a sum, the 14 that is the basis for the Sonnet. The 6,8 form was the Italian form of it. Shakespeare wrote in the form that gives the quaternary value of 14: 3 x 4, remainder 2. (3,4)2=6,8 Have as much fun untangling the triangles as I had. Hint: look for the lines that cross on the edge of the frame. The puzzle, as one would suspect, is hinging on the Tees. The book is the object that one would expect to find paired with the light. I still maintain that "the tables" are trig. ones. By definition trig, is about the relationship of sides of triangles. Pi/2 is the angle that leads to infinity. Your looking for a square angle of 90 degrees (pi/2). Nice Vesica in the middle there.
  24. If Bacon was successfully being extorted by Bushell it may have been deemed necessary to stop the drain if it was causing Bacon to act unethically to come up with the money. Some of the things that Bushell could have accused him of were penalized by death at the time. The rumors of what was happening with the young boys in Bacon's entourage at the time Bushell was his young assistant offer a possible explanation. The relation between Bacon and Bushell became completely estranged at the time of the charges. The flow of money to Bushell stopped. Bacon may have been removed from official position and protected from the charge of buggery. We just don't know what was known by who and what the interests were. We don't need to know either. That can only stain what is not worth staining.
  25. You need to look into why exactly there are 14 lines in a Sonnet, when and where that started and why Shakespeare used the 10 syllables (2x5) per line in a 3x4 (quatrain)+2 lines arrangement. Why do you think the the decasyllabic meter was standard in French at the time of the the Norman invasion? What is it about ten that was inspiring during the Carolingian Renaissance? There are considerations in all this that have to be symbolic (geometry elated) since they did later evolve to be more musical than they once were. In Italy they had a form of Sonnet that was a (8 +6) line arrangement. That's interesting becuse 6,8,10 is a Pythagorean triple. We can see that the 10 may been a powerful influence, as well as "sacred" geometry probably was. As we have seen in the consideration of the number 4, 1+2+3+4=10 and 1x2x3x4=24. The difference is 14. How many 4s in 14? 3 with a remainder of 2. That's Shakespeare's line pattern. He is representing the quaternary value of the difference between the two aspects of the quaternary are based in that Dee wrote about. It may all stem for the quaternary form in music reconsidered. At any rate, I suspect you that if you can trace this all the way back to a first influence you will find a numerological belief that is informed by scientific observation. Can we ultimately pin the choice in Shakespeare (3x4 + 2) to an influence of Dee that is number theory based? Since the 111 is the number representative of the Sun is the poet speaking to a fair youth who is his a Sun to him or a son to him?
