  1. Yikes. That's incredibly arbitrary. In the span of the life of the Universe I do not see how anyone could arrive to such a conclusion about what numbers you attribute to the things you mention and then infer an order and a decimal place only to go onto other things from there. In that regard it is a complete non puzzle because it is not solvable. Similarly, using an arbitrary derivation to get the number 314 and to then fish out one possible interpretation of it in terms of a gematria rule that isn't specified among an infinity of possibilities is also unsolvable. The point of a puzzle is for it to have an elegant solution not buried in an infinity of possible interpretations. It can't be predicated on reading your mind. Part of the problem here is that there exists one possible interpretation which you see as the intended solution, but based on the arbitrary choices I see so many other possibilities you could have exploited. For example there are 4 books, one chess board and three dimensions which point arbitrarily to 4x1x3=12. Why is a chessboard 4, BTW? Why is it not 8 if it is 8x8, or 6 because it is 2^6 in square number? Why is a globe 1? Who can infer that without guessing it? A code must yield a solution. If the solution is simply one idea in an infinity of them then it is unreasonable to even ask a person to attempt to read your mind. Working backwards from the solution to explain yourself appears like cherry picking randomly from the image. It is exactly the same criticism you will find being made by statisticians who will assail you when you start with the works of Shakespeare and do arbitrary cherry picking to arrive to very specific suggestions which then extend to gematria. Because there is a near infinity of possibilities, anything can be made to appear by simply being judicious and clever with your choices. That is not code breaking. Code breaking is not done in reverse, by starting with what you desire as a solution and proposing where it is found based on your choices. A code must have a formalism and build up to something or else it is just guesswork. Calling it a secret, as you have, is the correct thing to call it. You must reveal it because there is no way to infer it.
  2. Is there an app that lists all multiple word expressions that would satisfy this? I feel that would show something that might weaken the suggestion that there is something special going on. What if we noticed that the possibilities for using any words were so large that the satisfying of 3 additional conditions still produced many suggestions. As far as I can tell, only useful word suggestions that are consistent with a desirable confirmation of an idea are being considered. How on earth would one guess the multi-word expression and get it right when there so many possibilities to consider? There are what is considered to be an infinite number of word combinations of the approximately 170 000 English words. From that subset we would need to consider all those that have 14 characters. This is still a large number. As a quick exercise, I find that it is not that hard to produce a two word 14 letter count. It is possible by frequency of letter usage to estimate what the average value of each letter is. If we used just a mean value for 24 letters that would be about 12.5. The skewing of vowels to lower values means that this value is less. We can ballpark what an "average" choice would return to values around the number you have arrived to. That would seem to indicate to me that there are many potential 2 word combination of 14 words that will add up to 158. We would be looking for the subset of those which also satisfy a couple more ciphers, but each of those is also prone to returning a value around what you show by virtue of them being derived by a rule from the first. What this means is that there is a certain likelihood that a 158 in one cipher will return a certain value in another. So, how likely is it that Elizabeth Tudor is intended even if it works? If I added a fifth cipher would it work? Why focus on these four? Is this spelled out somewhere? Who established this method of approaching the text? For reasons you must by now understand, I don't have the statistical tools to answer these questions. Intuitively, I understand that it's not as clear cut as it seems. There are other things which we can show (which are demonstrable) that lend themselves to being considered in a way that is more tangible. Treating words empirically is complicated. Treating word combination subjectively is not going to generate unique suggestions. The weakest of all possible arguments will come from the interpretation of the meaning of symbols. That is magnified in a text which is bathed in many symbols. The range of what we can suggest is not small. What is possibly meant by Sun is not unique. If we extend that to son, which it is not, it grows larger. Is the Queen more likely to be a queen of our choosing or the moon in the context of alchemy? It really depends if we want to accept context clues from the text or not. We are free to choose our terms, and that is a problem. It can allow us to mage generalizations saying things like: such and such a play is actually veiled telling of the lives of people we suggest. Is it?
  3. There's an obvious suggestion of the darkening of the Sun here, and it goes all the way to the darkening of the heavenly Sun which staineth lives. This is a Platonic reference to the two Suns, the celestial one and the one which confers the divine luminosity. One gives us the wonderful visuals mentioned. It is subject to being clouded and being unseen to the West of its Easterly rising. The divine Sun is also an Eastern Sun. It is symbolically given to us as the brightness emanating from the position of Jerusalem where the flattened mountain top is Mount Moriah. When we cannot see it from the West it means that we, as Westerners, have lost our Godly ways (a point of the Reformation). The reference to alchemy is most likely suggesting that the word count here is 111, which I get, but it's unclear what exactly counts for a word or not to each and every observer. To have made Sonnet 33 contain this is also a very good use of alchemical reference, as we have seen with Kunrath's use of it. It, of course, governs the overlapping of cycles in the Great Cycle that Shakespeare loves to refer to with his references to "going full circle". When the clouding is full circle that has an alchemical meaning too. The mention of the "he was but one hour mine" is interesting. The solar eclipse of 1651 occurred shortly after 1 pm Greenwich time, allowing one to say that the Sun was shown for all hours but one at one on that day. 33 and 34 are certainly Bacon (33) and Francis (67), but they also work to divide 100 in 1/3 and 2/3 tranches (the reciprocal of both is the 3:1 trinity and the 3:2 Pythagorean harmonic). If you apply these to the globe from Mount Moriah you will delineate Paris and then Bacon's beloved NA point of greatest harmony. Bacon seems to have further refined these tranches by using Plato's reference to Atlantis being beyond the Pillars from Heliopolis where the legend had been given to Solon. In the first folio dedication "To The Reader" a geometric consideration leads us to a point between words 33 and 34. This could be seen as a call to go read what is here. I sense all things align that way.
  4. The thing that is regretful here is that this is not the original inscription. I suspect that the period over the I is in prominence because it is relevant. There are only three periods spaced out in that inscription. They would make a triangle to consider. If it was true to what Bacon is showing elsewhere it may be involving an angle of about 18 degrees to represent the constellation of Triangulum. I previously worked out the exact angles of the stars making it up from astronomical data: The 17.6 is likely treated as 18 (S) if it is shown. The three periods we see are suggestive of such an elongated triangle, but we lack a visual of the original to check that idea. You get this triangle when considering the Hobson's Nose point, the Caicos point and the Ground Point for the constellation of Triangulum on the Mercator map. The resulting large triangle is given by joining the three points and it, quite pleasingly, echoes the shape of Triangulum.. You get this suggestion by the use of the Two Tavern clues that are here given in Sylva Sylvarum where they are mentioning heading to the Mytre (of St Peter) constellation, Triangulum, from the Great Turk. It is a clever way to involve his Hobson's Nose point in a globe based demonstration of great harmony and symmetry which has been identified. On the highest level there appears to be a Two Triangle suggestions to guide us. One is the Summer Triangle and one is Triangulum. I contend that Bacon must have noticed these wonderful coincidences when he was working out his Great Circle considerations. It's just very elegant, but not exactly revealing of anything. It may have caused men to go looking at one point, and maybe that is why we have a historical reference to a retrieval at Hobson's Nose.
  5. That's neat. Can you incorporate the three Ys that are hanging down from the median of the page? Are there three "wise/Ys" men involved? One can notice that the first is next to the S, the last is next to the G and that the middle one is associated with the e in superscript which is the placeholder of "Th". We can possibly deduce from this that the "alveolar fricative" th here is sounding like the "th" in clothes (z). Then we can interpret that in SyZyGy. The astronomcial meaning of that is the coming together of three celestial bodies in an alignment (here Sun, moon and Earth). The old English meaning of this is of things being yolked together. It's from the roots Syn and Zygon for which we have words like Synchonicity and Zygote. In the Shakespeare tomb epitaph/poem there is something simlar associated with the Ys in the line of Ts also. They form a triangle with the word "man" in it. Y with e in supercript there gives "wise man". And the three Ys would be an interesting three wise men suggestion. This would suggest the three wise men following the star to its zenith position.
  6. The collar is an important arc suggestion in the Droeshout portrait. The arc of the collar is centered at E. It intersects the circle which contains the image at C and D here, giving CD perpendicular to GF. This is the line of the button hem. Point G is part of an angle AGB that is 80 degrees. AGF and BGF are 40 degrees. The arc of the collar created on its circle is about 48 degrees or 1/7.5 th of the circle. If one does the math it is what is required for the 40,60,80 triangle to come out of the top (shown elsewhere previously). The collar ends up being a clever design element in the composition and worthy of consideration.
  7. Ok I've read that. Hermes is tugging on the ear is he? Quite by chance, it is in the position of the ear that Cygnus is placed in the Droeshout portrait. Is the scene on the coin a call to awareness of one's intuition (messages from the messenger of the heavens) when we sleep or is the prankster tugging on our ear to wake us from inside our sleep. In response to Kate's question about the Sweet Swan of Avon reference we are dealing here with the Swan (Cygnus) and the home of the Nova (palindrome of Avon, like 1561 is a palindrome of 1651) of 1600. The SS is potentially in relation to the Solar Saros, but the Christian view has been to equate it to the Saint Sacrement. In other words the event is an omen of an upcoming reunion time when the alchemical wedding is going to produce and end and a beginning. This is applicable to the alchemical/Hermetical idea as well as the apocalyptic idea. Moving on to my most recent play with Sylva Sylvarum in exploring the use of the proximity letter cipher which allows repetition, I am here: So far I have identified: Swan, Anulus, Sol, Luna, Lyra, Eagle, Saturn, Mars, Solar, Saros, Rosy, Cross, Royal, Christos (nice scroll C in front of the H) in the lines above. Below I have previously noticed that there was an overlapping: Wilian Shake Lance, printed works, fortune, the Great Tau, my Soul and other more banal words like tree, urn, annex... it tickles the mind doesn't it? How many times does "hunt" appear here?
  8. What kind of coin is this? Is it a Thaler?
  9. I'm sorry if I missed that. Thanks regardless.
  10. I see what you did there! It just clicked with me that Saros is also Rosas.
  11. You can listen to Fugue 17 being sung here. Atalanta Fugiens: Fugue 17 - YouTube
  12. There's this document from 1568 which mentions John Shakspeyr in the role he is known to have held. John Shakespeare When one does an internet search for the name John Shakspeyr every result I get returns/redirects to John Shakespeare, so it would seem that history has baptized him with that much certainty. It does also appear that we are applying a name we know from later to a person who may not have known/used it once, but that may only be appearances. My original British ancestors did not spell the family name the same way at different times in their lives. When I do a genealogy search for their later name I can find many occasions of people who are referring to it, as opposed to the original spelling when that ought to be used. Same thing is true on my Scottish side if you go back far enough. What was a Norman name originally became something similar to a known English name after. Can we not at least agree that his name sounded like Shakespeare? Is there a problem with being named William? To allege the faking of historical documents is to propose a conspiracy theory. There are legitimate reasons why differences can exist. I do think that efforts are being made by some to not stress the differences because of a fear that would fan the flames of doubt. That may be paranoia instead of malicious intent.
  13. What was his Christian given name? His father was apparently a dissenting Catholic. It's unclear if he was religious at all since he was quite prone to illegal side dealings. I suppose that is quite common among Christians of all persuasions. Funny fact. The Church records also show that he was buried on the following service after the wedding of my ancestors. This is a claim to fame that many North Americans have since the couple in question found their way to North America where the family became the most prolific of all New England families in terms of genealogical spread. Just goes to show that many have a common ancestor who probably knew the Shakespeares. Should we ask: what's in a name?
  14. Going forward I will use Maier's "Orbita Quadruplex" expression for this: SS atop it, AA below. Hang Hog in full prominence hanging on the central Vesica divider... This brings me back to the use of the 1,2,3,4 in the image of the Magnum Opus. It is apparent here that what is being done is to not only show the first polygons. We are shown how each number depicts the number of arcs which are defining a circle. A point is defining one full circular arc division on the circle. A line gives 2 circular arc divisions of the circle. A triangle gives 3, and a square gives 4. If the radius here is one unit in length then the line is a diameter of 2 units in length. The side of the triangle is the square root of 3 in length and the side of the square is the square root of 2 in length. The numbers shown are therefore not lengths or number of sides. They uniquely point to the divisions of a circle. The radius of 1 here makes the circumference of the circle be 2pi (mathematically speaking, 2pi is the definition we give for the constant we call Tau today). If we think as pi as a symbol of form TT then 2pi it TT TT which we may sing out as the number 40 (the accepted historical declination for the constellation of Cygnus). The Orbita Quadruplex above came out of the occasion of four arcs spelled out in the text that served to define the first circle which is centered on the U(you) in Thou. At the very center of all of this is "Home", the tabernacle suggestion.
  15. Ok, a profitable idea here is that four "S"s and two "O"s in that circle is pointing to the Greek word Sossos (unique to involve these letters). It's a close relative of the Greek word Saros which we can pick out in the image by proximity too (using the "S A" of S Alban and the "O rs" below it). A Sossos is a unit of 60. A Saros is a unit of 60x60. There is also a Neros in the family. I can see it from proximity also using the "en" in ten and moving upward. It's equal to 600 so why not use the word "ten" for 60x10? That would make it equal to 2 Tau or TT. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but the 60th letter is the small "g", the center. The Swan in the Summer triangle is housed in the corner of its triangle which is equal to 60 degrees. Swan and Sossos given around the circle centered at the 60h position are a bit too many coincidences for me to pass that off as fortuitous. This starts to suggest something else. The center of the circle, as well as the nest of the swan, is a tabernacle or "house of the divine". We can start to reconcile some of the Christian iconography with that. The entire thing seems to be a play on Esses (S). We can involve the ess shaped serpent in it, he who holds the golden apple of knowledge here which Atalanta was tricked with in "Atalanta Fugiens" which you have mentioned. Add an inclined cross which employs "ss", and why not include a spear or two for decor. Culminate with the Saint-Sacrement for good measure. If our lips are still moist enough we should not forget to utter Cygnus when we devise our tongue-twister. I am half-tempted to go write a tune called the "Sexagesimal song of Sossos the celestial Swan". I suppose it is only appropriate for the new Star in Cygnus to have appeared in the year 1600. There are three young here, no? Similar to the three new stars that had hatched, I suppose (1572, 1600 and 1604). Is this not an homage to the Chaldeans who started us off in number and geometry with 60? Or is to the Greeks who gave us the sacred 10 with the monad number 6? Is Bacon not pointing us to our empirical roots here? Clever guy...These things are so well put together it's humbling. Not a bad effort for a Swan Song on his part. A+ for effort Francis. Rawley did say there was something in the numbering of Sylva Sylvarum that was related to a secret...
  16. There are crumbs which we try and make stories with here too. I find it very interesting to go to the shore here and pick away at a visible layer in the cliff layers which is about 325 million years old. Pretty much everything that ever happened in that window of time is pancaked into what isn't much more than a fossilized stain in the rock. Occasionally something pops out that is a faithful cast of what once was. I'll pick those up and they will serve as dust collectors for me in my life. That's a hell of a lot of cumulated effort to arrive to just that. The weird thing is that all these remnants will all one day be sucked into a black hole which in time will evaporate. There's a cycle we are riding in that is that long. Infinity is a big place. Imagine being conscious throughout an infinity of time...The thought of it makes me want to sleep through most of it. There is a Chinese proverb that says that fortune comes to those who sleep well. It kinda feels that way when one has a good night's sleep doesn't it. My life got so much better when I discovered napping throughout the day. I swear it makes weeks feel like they are much longer.
  17. Yes, but in this configuration showing the annulus: The same 2 inner circles stacked inside of the larger circle is how Bacon understood the motion of the Sun and Earth (he was not a proponent of heliocentricity). There's a context clue in the positioning of the words "mundus intellectuallis). The Droeshout portraint is constructed the same way. As you can see the circle goes through the center of the two Os in London. This is a classic theme. To find the original seed idea for this go to Claudius Ptolemy (I seem to be referring to him a bit today). Robert Fludd absolutely gobbled up this idea. In his various images suggesting "harmony of the spheres". Bacon's idea of planetray motion was shared with Tycho Brahe. The planets turned around the Sun but the Sun turned around the Earth. It would have looked something like this (I have added circles in red to show the equivalence with what is here).
  18. The cat's name is Luna. The other is called Sol. I'm not terribly into this, am I? Oddly, they can't stand each other's company. It is a very rare moment when we ever see them sleeping together. Will have to check the Saros series to see if it is predictive of their behavior. : )
  19. It's buried in details that most people will never sort through because they'd rather attack it using a muscle not found in their skulls. In that regard it is right under their noses. I am always quite impressed by those who search for what they cannot name. lol They'll know when they find it, I suppose. Such rosy outlooks...American revivalist Rosicrucianism is a wild ride. It may have given us Star Trek, though...not all bad.
  20. You just inadvertently showed me something I wasn't considering about SWAN. Its etymology is from the Proto Indo Europen SWEN. It has the (N)orth), (W)est, (S)outh) and (E)ast baked in it. When we specify the swan we are locating ourselves using a quaternary. This is giving me a bit of light bulb moment now. Remember Herge recounting the T T mystery to us? Here's the clue that unlocks the solution. If you punch in those coordinates into a map you' ll find your are in the approximate region of the Caicos that coincides with the mid point of the left hand side of the zone of visibility of the eclipse in question (on the mid line which goes through the bull's eye center. This is now triggering in me the idea that one can calculate some very useful things with observations made at the extremities and center of the band of visibility. This is largely how Ptolemy described the method for measuring the ratio of Earth-Sun to Earth-moon distances. During a total solar eclipse the relative size of the moon completely obscures the Sun (but it may be a bit larger). In an annular eclipse you get the to approach that ratio by seeing the moon just a bit smaller (in relative size than the Sun's face). The period in question was a period when such observations were being made based on experiments that scientists were planning on paper with geometric considerations. Off to Claudius Ptolemy I am going to refresh myself...
  21. The Oak Island we know of today is an evolution of pop culture narratives and acute media sensationalism, I'm afraid. It's gone the way of P.T. Barnum. You'd probably think I follow that, but I haven't. That bubble burst for me in the mid 80s. However, I am interested in the writings of those earliest commenters who seemed to instantly grasp what was going on there. The most interesting period in that island's history is ca. 1760, a time when the people involved with the show appear to assume the place was pristine and not even discovered. Like a lot of stuff on History channel, it's not really history they are interested in. How Bacon got implicated is a story of its own. It was the dominant idea there in the 1890s-1930 period. Peter Amunden revived it greatly, but he also neutered it at the same time.
  22. Here's a start in Sylva Sylvarum with a typical proximity letter cipher of the sort I suspect is used in various places to inform the wording of the text. Swan, Luna, Sol, Lyra, Saturn...even Anulus can be teased out of the top left corner. Funny that you would mention "I SWAN". I drew a circle centered at the g in the middle and had it go through the center of the only other G. Going around it, it intercepts two periods, 4 "S"s, 2 "Os" and " HIS SWAN). It's the potential "Hobson's Nose" suggestion within that circle that I find intriguing. Look at how that S has a unique script e in front of it. There's nothing like it anywhere else on that page. Incidentally. A line through the center of the Os in "Autho" and "Of" joins the period after "centuries". A line going through the Os in "Or" and "History" intercepts the Mid point of the S in Sylva. There's a triangle there that I will have to look at more closely now that I have seen the 70, 55, 55 one elsewhere.
  23. The local solar system Oct. 14, 1651 viewed with Celestia Not only are we seeing a solar eclipse at this date, we can also see that Saturn, Mars and Mercury are forming a very nice and rare alignment. If we were to move back and look at the ecliptic plane as a horizon, all three bodies would appear as one location with Earth and Venus on either side of the Sun. From Earth (where an observer would stand) Mars and Saturn would be on opposing sides of the Sun. Mars and Jupiter (it's not shown due to scale) would be approaching an alignment. Venus would be opposite to the observer on the other side of the Sun (hidden by it). This is very much evocative of this image depicting the philosopher's stone: There's an obvious suggestion of planetary alignments here. The 6 bodies + Earth are implicated. The dragon which is quite often shown to us as eating its tail is here not wrapped around the circle but breathing fire . The ancient idea here is that the Solar eclipse is the dragon swallowing the Sun (an ancient way of thinking about that). The 1651 annular "ring of fire" Solar eclipse offers a nice visual suggestion of the Dragon's fire wrapped around the Moon to Earthly observers. Here is a side view of the moon approaching the Sun minutes before the Oct.14, 1651 eclipse. The exact moment can be seen looking back to Earth with the Celestia app. here: The central dark region to the right of Brazil here is the perfect aligned spot. You can match that exactly to the NASA produced slide for 38 Saros 128 I showed previously. With a bit of maths we can all become time travelers to some events. The Rebis is considered to be the end product of the Great Work. It has a dual nature. It is both related to birth and death where the two coincide (ends are beginnings and beginnings are ends). The Great work likely had a meaning for Bacon that was related to the completion of his own cycle which started in 1561. In it he envisioned a Great work of his own doing which involved laying down the corner stone for great Temple of Learning. As an aside, the years around 1651 coincide with the missing years in Thomas Bushell's life (he allegedly went into hiding in this time). There are rumblings in some of Bushell's biographies that he had sailed to a far off destination to lay a corner stone for his master's Temple to complete a promise he had once made (here some will have us conclude that it was to Bacon). You may have encountered that mentioned in some of the older specualtions about Bacon and Oak Island (some of that is on SirBAcon). It's not something I feel is easy to comment about. What I feel we are safe in saying is that Bacon did have an eye on the North American coast from very early days when he was planning his colonization efforts with Great Circle considerations. Is it possible that someone played a role in marking off the position (44.4N and 66.6 W of Paris) for him or on his behalf? I don't see why not. It really all depends on how committed one would be to see something Bacon valued be realized. From where I stand I would dearly love to know why there was a small island there called Hobson's Nose which has a historical reference to the retrieval of something in 1830 which also served as a source of details for the later stories at Oak Island nearby. There is something about all this that reeks of paying homage to something or someone. Much of what we read is doing that on paper, but did it extend to a physical location? I do feel the Oak Island stories are Masonic contrivances of ca. 1762, but it is much less clear with Hobson's Nose what happened there. I find it very satisfying that a mystery associated to it can be suggested, one which offers no hope of ever solving it. It is exactly as it should be for it to resemble the impossibility of squaring the circle or changing lead into Gold. Hobson's Nose is now mostly eroded away into the waters, a fate its close cousin Atlantis suffered. Are we having fun yet? Do we have to dig up something to find a treasure? Not the type Bacon wanted to give you. The treasure is often right under your nose. That would be my cat who is in my lap right now. : )
  24. The swan song: Swan song - Wikipedia "In Greek mythology, the swan was a bird consecrated to Apollo, and it was therefore considered a symbol of harmony and beauty..." The Swan (Cygnus)and the Lyre (Lyra) are two of the constellations in the Summer Triangle. The third is the Eagle (Aquila).
