    Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of these points. They just seem to be there on those verticals. That middle one becomes an apex for an isosceles 40 degree base angle pair. That's noteworthy. It's "freaky" that the Novum Organum composition appears from the 6 points treated pretty simply.

    We have a problem Houston.  We have it in the form that Nolan's Cross makes an appearance in this 6 point built up geometry.

    The three cone positions that were given precisely by Amundsen at OI by GPS are seen here with the 40, 50 and 26.6 degree angles echoed. The one stone position which has always caused a problem for the OI fans with its uncertainty has been the top stone which is alleged to be anywhere from 144 feet to 147 feet from the crossing point. In the plaque, with the use of the O,O,O points we can see that these 3 values are all plausible and within the range of the rounding over of the angle size.

    I have no immediate explanation for why this appears. It may have to appear because of the regular geometry that comes out of the absolutely random looking 6 F, B points.

    They clearly aren't randomly given points because they do mirror the geometric center of the frame (via their centroid), they mimic the Novum Organum title page composition scheme via a simple circle and chord suggestion and now they suggested Cross that Nolan produced only in ca. 1982 when we explore the three O,O,O point suggestion.

    I'd be less rattled by this had we started with a recognizable symmetry with the F,B points.  I don't see any other way to get to this result but to have identified the only two letters used with a frequency of 3 in those 220. It is possible to show that Nolan's Cross  is easily constructed by just symmetry considerations, but we get there by building to that with irregular looking points here.  Neat trick. Another of Petr's "miracles"? lol

    And don't forget about getting old and worn out needing something to make one want to keep on living. 😉

    I am very fortunate to be on a treasure hunt. And since I was kid it has been invigorating and exciting.

    My 89 year old Dad in Assisted Living is bored to death, wanting to die. When we go out to lunch he has a blast, and that is what he lives for. But I have tried to help him find a passion he can pursue for years. My wife retied, is bored except watching TV. I wish she had a passion beyond that.

    Who are we treasure hunters? Why do we do it?

    For me, I get a thrill from it. Even today stumbling on old Baconiana with synchronicity connecting here and there, it fires me up.

    One of the favorite years of my life I spent wandering around the public lands and wilderness of the Colorado high country looking for arrowheads. Such thrilling moments when some strange magic would make me look in the right place and pick up a beautiful arrowhead that had not been held in human hands for maybe hundreds or thousands of years. Whew, oh boy. Nothing like it.

    Who are we? Why do we do it?

    Grab a handful of sand then and ponder how the heavier elements in it had to made in a solar furnace at some point in the past. I would hate to be able to know how each grain got to were it is. I am happy to not be part of that entire journey. Funny things is that almost anything you can grab was one caught up in a living thing and it has the potential to return to another form of that. Information which is persisting in time is managing to operate on substrates. Life isn't the stuff it is made up of.  It is busy organizing information  for future recollection. Someone who made a point embodied information in it that reaches you. On an information level that has been a limited success for the life current. It's why Shakespeare encourages you to put down your thoughts.

    Regardless of the above, which I tend feel you know more than most people since you live and have ties there, Penn Leary was on a treasure hunt just like me. Peter Dawkins also speaks of a treasure hunt. Oak Island never left an impact in my brain, but there is a lot of us who for whatever reason hunt treasures.

    Do it!! 🙂

    I don't know what I know, but I know what I should not know. I know to not believe. Authority when it is perceived comes via confidence. Confidence comes from discipline. Discipline starts with self awareness. You have to have in you to know that you can know the knowable if you are disciplined.

    I searched SirBacon.org to see if Mahone Bay has come up before you popped in. Indeed it has, from the late very good friend of SirBacon.org, Penn Leary.

    https://sirbacon.org/archives/epdf.Penn Leary pub_the-second-cryptographic-shakespeare.pdf

    This was one of the first books Lawrence sent to me in my early Baconian days (late 1990's). I remember reading this one with wide-open eyes! Penn Leary was an early inspiration to me. What's funny, even though I have no memory of the words below, I know I read them taking it all in. I suspect some of it made into my subconscious. 😉

    Chapter 2
    Avery long time ago, and once upon a time, Marian and I set out for the province of Nova Scotia, a little-known peninsula in far northeastern Canada. Marian is a gentlewoman, the Lady to whom I refer as my first wife when she burns the biscuits.

    Some arrangement was made to relieve me, for a few weeks, from the tedium of the law business; I think my father agreed to handle a vexatious Motion for a More Definite Statement, a dilatory exercise then pending upon my not very busy calendar.

    Outside of that, in 1952, we were free. I had read some books about Oak Island just off the coast of Nova Scotia where, it was said, a mighty treasure was buried. We gassed up our three-holer Buick to transport us the 2500 miles to Mahone Bay. Time was short so we drove day and night, relieving each other at the controls of our powerful eight-cylinder roadeating machine. Treasure and Romance were beckoning us on to a reputed golden glory-hole yawning on Oak Island.

    In Canada the highway was not then of the best. Grinding along the gravel roads in the darkness, and going as fast as I could, I had no reason to suspect that I had embarked upon such a long trail. As it happens, that summer journey has not yet ended.

    We found the coastal village of Mahone Bay and had dinner at its only tea room. Fishing and digging for treasure were the local industries so fish was all there was to eat. I had tea instead.

    The digging on the Island had been going on since 1795. Most treasures depend for a living upon an old map and a tradition; it is sure and certain that jewels or gold were once buried but no one knows just where. But the reverse is true of Oak Island. The particular spot where its treasure was interred has been fixed, within a few yards, for 192 years. The treasure itself may have been put in its tomb a century or more before that. There is no scrap of evidence, other than conjecture, to connect it with any person or age. The character of the treasure is equally uncertain.

     

    That's a perfect example of the nonsense that lives on about OI which is taken from pulp fiction popular from the 1860s onward. There is no evidence there ever a treasure search there in 1795. In fact, that is the date when the property in question (lot 18) was sold to the adult John Smith who later fairy tales has it was one of the youthful adventurers who discovered the pit on a jaunt to a mysterious island at that date. Smith had lived on the island with his mother since the mid 1780s. The island had significant habitation since 1763. Lot 18, where all this intrigue is said to have taken place, was owned by a German merchant from Lunenburg on the business end of the island. It had been the business end of the island since 1753-1758. 1795 is Masonically inspired. It is 33 years after Charles Morris' plans for the island were executed in 1762. Morris was an influential Freemason and the understudy of Erasmus James Philipps whose first Nova Scotia lodge was established at Annapolis Royal, NS, a place I am visiting Thursday. 

    If an honest historical treatment was ever written about Oak Island which was free from repeating the unsubstantiated fantasies of amateur speculators quoting their predecessors it would be obvious to everyone that we are dealing with a symbolic story painted in geometrically inspired themes that has truly gone amok.

    Thanks for the info and for sharing your knowledge

    Be very careful. This is not known to be known. It stems from ideas published by Peter Dawkins found almost nowhere else. They are his own contribution to this arcane field. A number is not a cipher, and there is no secondary gematria based method to verify it is one (as may be alleged).  Gematria is not a ciphering method. There is no historic tradition of working back numbers to meanings or expressions, only one where word creation was influenced by counts. That can be shown. 

    Bacon's biliteral cipher is a ciphering method. When Bacon describes ciphers he correctly refers to ciphers, because he knows what a cipher is. A simple cipher is one where one letter in an alphabet substitutes for one letter in a coded one perfectly. There is no ambiguity in deciphering a simple cipher.  Some individuals have sought to suggest the same thing can be done with a letter to number correlation. This does not work as numbers can correspond to many permutations of letters that can gave rise to multiple interpretations that are equal. There is a pitfall here where people will show you things that appear to work this way, but these demonstrations all suffer from the fact that no one can confirm that what is suggested is indeed the "solution" among all other possible solutions. 

    Certain words or expressions may have ben chosen because of their counts. This does not imply we can reverse a count to an expression. Honesty in doing that would require we provide the entire list of words that satisfy the count in a prescribed formalism in all possible counting schemes. Picking and choosing a formalism by injecting this or that counting scheme is not way to proceed with confidence.

    Dawkins has suggested that Bacon was an esoteric practitioner. Bacon's reputation is that of being a first class empiricist. It is highly doubtful Bacon would have tried his hand at non ciphering schemes when he possessed capable ciphering schemes that can yield unambiguous results.

    All that being said, a number can work effectively as a simple cue for its ease of identification. Once you are cued you should start asking: why would I be cued. If the answer suggested is: because the cue has a meaning that is trying to be related then that is not ciphered message by definition.

  9. Supposed to be at Mahone Bay today, but it's raining cats and dogs. Was looking forward to getting as close to the Mahone Bay point as possible.

    Being stuck inside, I had a deeper look into the the 3 FB pairs to see if there's any discernable geomtrical relationships between points I,H,F,C,D and E.

    Things start to congeal when you take each letter involved and use its center. The circle that gets defined by the points IFC  gets cut by a line using points HD. That's 5 of the 6 points involved. One can draw the line AI and the two lines intersect on the middle letter in SHA, H.

    A recurring theme in much of the composition used in art is a line going through a circle.  LP is a chord on the circle in the image below. To find the center of the circle one only has to draw a perpendicular from the chord ends and cross the points where they intersect the circle (points R and T). Point J is the geometric center. With that we can determine some angles. JLP and JPL and both 33 degrees (cool). LJP is 114 degrees. We've seen this before, but let's look at some things first. Point H gave us the line, but we can now see that we can define it by calling it the intersect point of W (mid point of chord  RT) through I.

    The center J through I, defines a point Z on line HD. ZL is the same length as chord LP. Z can be joined to T to produce a 72 degree angle with the line going through TP.

    None of this seems to be random at all. The six (F,B) points all have a role in a regular geometry.

    What's suspicious in the plaque is that the three perpendiculars to the line HD are going through Os. O,O,O is a masonic cue to the three aspects of the creator.

     

    spacer.png

    It's not a scheme that is new to me. I've seen this used before here:

    spacer.png

    The three points O,O,O can be shown to involving the FB points like this:

    spacer.png

    This lends more wight to the idea that position of the F,B points was carefully chosen to suggest something that is found elsewhere.

    To respond quickly as I am still finishing (trying to finish) other tasks, it was on July 2nd when they declared independence.

    https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2014/07/02/john-adams-vision-of-july-4-was-july-2/

    The 4th became the day of celebration, but July was most likely planned as the day for a few reasons.

    Most years July 2 is Day 183 with 182 days before it and 182 days after it. The middle day of the of the year.

    Using the 24 letter alphabet codes that were in use during Bacon's lifetime, we see some cool Seal numbers.

    ONE EIGHTY THREE is 157 Simple and 365 Kaye cipher.

    ONE EIGHTY TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher.

    July 2nd is Day 183 most years. On Leap Years it is Day 184. Then it is Day 182 from the end of the year with 183 days before it.

    In the 364 Days Sonnets design the first half ends with the last Line of the first half of the Sonnets, "Shall profit thee,and much inrich thy booke." That is Line 1078 of the Sonnets and Line 14 of Sonnet 77. That point is always the end of Day 182 (157/287) whether it is a Leap Year or not. The date changes every three years, but the Day numbers stay the same.

    Day 183 begins Sonnet 78 and the second half of the the Sonnets design with Day 183 (157/365) which is usually July 2.

    https://www.light-of-truth.com/pyramid-GMT.php#Line1078

    SO oft haue I inuok'd thee for my Muse,
    And found such faire assistance in my verse,
    As euery Alien pen hath got my vse,
    And vnder thee their poesie disperse.

    To me, that makes July 2nd the "perfect" day to celebrate.

    JULY TWO is 117 Simple and 58 Reverse cipher.

    JOHN DEE is 58 Simple and 117 Kaye cipher.

    Not sure when they coined, "UNITED STATES", but I am confident they knew that using their 26 letter alphabet numbers that UNITED STATES adds up to 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher.

    But the celebration day was shifted to the 4th. Why?

    Interesting thought.

    Over the years I've entertained many ideas about July 4 and some may even be possible. Here is one idea I have been thinking of recently:

    FOURTH OF JULY is 177 Simple cipher using the same 26 letter alphabet they used for coining the name of Bacon's New Atlantis, but we all know that 177 is the Simple cipher for WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE in the 24 letter numbers.

    So Bacon is well represented overtly with the United States and the Seal numbers, John Dee may be cleverly acknowledged, and maybe even William Shakespeare gets a wink. 😉

     

     

     

     

    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.

    3 X FB, I love it and can even think of ways to look Deeper.

    That's pretty cool by itself CJ! I don't recall seeing it before you mentioned it. Is it your discovery? Or if that word carries too much baggage, are you the first to notice and mention it?

    What a fun tidbit! 🙂

    And so much more to explore!

    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. 

    spacer.png

    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.

    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.

    spacer.png

    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.

    It is still blowing me away!

    Let me see if I got it right?

    One can take any number of random points and follow a fairly simple formula, and in some steps will go from an irregular polygon and end up with a perfect one. That means all the sides and all the angles are the same and there will be a perfectly defined central point. By the nature of the formula, the very next step turns the entire process inward and into that infinite point. Everything becomes that point.

    I've had two visionary experiences in my life when the entire Universe in a brightly colored vibrating geometric chaos eventually unfolded into itself, and with me along for the ride, reduced down to a perfect single point. I'm not talking about a hundred random points or so, I am talking about the entire Universe!

    I was amazed how something so infinitely large as our Universe could seem to spiral into and become a single point.

    Coming out the other side of the point was always invigorating! Whew!

     

     

     

    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

    I'd call it a miracle as well! And obviously scalable with any polygon ultimately ending up as an infinite point. Great video.

    Yet here we have another Infinite portal into Eternity...

    <--1881-->

    Using that miracle formula which is easy to follow, the "A" of "SHAKESPEARE" is center of the irregular polygon starting the six points of F's and B's.

    I need to catch my breath, my Bacon/Dee brain is like a thousand point irregular polygon just beginning to add a few ears! LOL

    Truth is, eventually I know there is an infinite point that will be an inevitable result of some simple math. 😉

    And this is in full public view in the Shakespeare funerary plaque. Not that anybody but eccentric math people who enjoy Sacred Geometry will ever understand. Lol

    I suppose one day Oxfordians might claim the three times F and B refer to Edward de Vere by some creative and deceptive twist. The Strats would have a really hard time I think. As a Baconian I am excited as I am seeing an old secret revealed!

    Yes, please send me the GeoGebra file. 🙂

    Still more to digest!!

    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.

    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.

    spacer.png

    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:spacer.png

    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.

    spacer.png

    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:

    spacer.png

    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.

    I am a Baconian to the core. But when I began to learn of other candidates I thought the Marlowe idea was fun, even though I never took it serious. I've said a few times, "If I wasn't a Baconian, I'd be a Marlovian."

    I'm just so annoyed at the Oxfordians the way they steal from Bacon and appear to not have a problem being deceiptful, and they have means to seduce important people to help spread their lie. UGH

    But that's just the way I think. LOL

    My hunch is that Dee was really onto something and we who are alive today may be participants. I keep seeing it over and over.

    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.

    The following image is one of only about 7 photographs of the house taken during her lifetime, and one of only about five taken before the earthquake. It shows the 7-story tower (subject of a previous post), along with an earlier version of the front gable, and the now-removed inscriptions on the front gate piers. Notice the Palladian window in the center of the image - this feature no longer exists.

    Zooming closer, we notice something very interesting, to say the least.

    image.png.86ce4da7dd45172f06c11996584e4171.png

    It is my personal belief that this is the Spiderweb Window. Why it was placed back into storage after the earthquake is a mystery to me... but notice the two sidelites. Here is the window in its complete condition:

    Pin by Cyn Shrader Hill on Winchester House | Winchester mystery house, Stained glass, House ...

    Unfortunately, one of the sidelites has been carelessly turned upside-down - so, we'll never know which way they were meant to face. (It is also highly probable that the central window has been turned inside-out.)

    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.

    I am still excited about it! You were participated in the conversation as it unfolded along with several other fascinating ideas you introduced. This triangle was something I did one night using what we had discussed and GeoGebra. It was one of my first triangles, if not the first. I am still very excited and feel like this is a good contribution to Baconians and whoever else.

    Plus it was a spontaneous and magical path for me while being a very effective way to learn how to use GeoGebra as a new treasure seeking tool.

    I am smiling even looking at the image again. I should get some kind of KosmiK Star for even taking the time to do it. LOL

    The Eternal Line...

    Thanks CJ! I couldn't have and wouldn't have even looked at it were if not for you and your hints. Take credit. 😉

     

    Side note:

    Oxfordians would take a pretty cool discovery like this and twist it around to make it about Edward de Vere with a $100,000 video production budget. It's like Baconians are financially limited as Francis Bacon was in his day. Is it a Baconian curse? Yikes!

    Yet on the other hand we have a FREE venue here to share a few old secrets among and for whoever might be interested in them.

     

     

     

     

    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.

    I'd like to share some quick geometry in the Sonnets Dedication.

    Notice the triangle with three angles of 36°, 72°, 72°:

    image.png.fc0a646da0f9960004082251ad557ffa.png

    It's called a Golden Triangle. One of the cool things about this triangle is that one can create a spiral by intersecting the triangles.

    image.png.b071f4436d9ce0a659a05d7b94bbd752.png

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_spiral

    A logarithmic spiral, equiangular spiral, or growth spiral is a self-similar spiral curve that often appears in nature. The first to describe a logarithmic spiral was Albrecht Dürer (1525) who called it an "eternal line" ("ewige Linie").[1][2] More than a century later, the curve was discussed by Descartes (1638), and later extensively investigated by Jacob Bernoulli, who called it Spira mirabilis, "the marvelous spiral".

    So translated to English, Albrecht Dürer called the spiral an "eternal line".

    Now what if we create a spiral with the Golden Triangle in the Sonnets Dedication?

    image.png.c1861c0dd25372c82c4213fc67600b2c.png

    If we start with SETTING FORTH and follow the "eternal line" we will spiral into the middle letter of the word ETERNITIE. One could literally spiral into the word ETERNITIE eternally!

    How is that for a hidden Sacred Geometry demonstration? 😉

     

    Some more to follow...

     

    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).

    spacer.png

    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:

    spacer.png

    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. 

    spacer.png

    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. 

    spacer.png

    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.

    spacer.png

    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.

    I like the spiderweb stained glass window too.

    "First stained glass window you’ll see on tour is well, a lot of them! But most noticeably is the spider webbed stain glass window. This window is quite important to Sarah’s history, as she designed this herself to feature two of her favorite things: the spiderweb, and the number 13. Hint: Count the dots."

    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.

"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.

    That's all very fine and good - and in fact, I think you're on to something genius - but perhaps the CENTER GEOMETRIES would align better if the windows were placed at the correct distance apart? Here's a picture of the whole room. Take into account the foreshortening of the perspective. The room was constructed, like Solomon's Temple, entirely without nails. The ceiling coffers and wall panels are held together with square wooden pegs. I like to think the shelves were designed for holding the complete works of Shakespeare/Bacon, but, judging from other Aesthetic Movement rooms of the period, I think it's safer to assume that they held vases/displays of some sort. Wagner (Who I'd die to get on the Forums) has some interesting things to share about the ceiling, with regard to the windows.

    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?

    Here is a new introduction I wrote to my pamphlet on Sarah Winchester:

     

    A NOTE TO THE READER

    There is an old saying that most people will accept a likely lie to an unlikely truth. In response to this, I offer the following adage: When a theory seems sufficiently improbable, no amount of evidence will sway the public’s opinion. Such is the case of Sarah Winchester.

    In the creation of this pamphlet, I feel the need to begin by thanking all those who have taken it upon themselves to challenge the “haunted house” literature – the story which has been cemented into our collective mind by a deliberate and egregiously clever marketing scheme.

    However, there does exist – at least in my mind – a substantial gap between the rejection of the myth and the realization of what I and many others believe to be Sarah’s true motives.

    Let me explain.

    When I first heard about Mrs. Winchester, in the third grade, I was quick to accept the folklore that has become synonymous with her name. My 8-year-old brain was desperately confused. I loved “spooky” stories, and I ate the legend up. I drew the house from every angle, fascinated with its bizarre design – in particular, its 7-story appearance before the 1906 earthquake.

    At some point, I began to realize how inaccurate the folklore was. The more I thought, the more I began to suspect that something was missing from the age-old story. But without context, I had no idea what this suspicion entailed – or how it would lead me to discover a theory which, despite its seemingly improbable nature, has moved me to write this very article.

    Before I state this theory, I offer one final note to the reader:

    Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary defines conspiracy theory as, “a theory asserting that a secret of great importance is being kept from the public.” The term conspiracy theorist is used frequently and without restraint, in various contexts, and is generally regarded as a disrespectful epithet. Many, after hearing what I have to say, would condemn me as one. However, I hold true to my beliefs, and will happily testify to their accuracy.

    M. W. H.

    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.

    ALSO NOTICE the Masonic Floor! 

    The room is built in such a shape that two 3:4:5 triangles can fit perfectly onto its floor surface - like a Blue Lodge Room.

    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?
