    Referring to those 'o's: see last stanza A lover's Complaint below: Five 'o's followed by Alpha <> Omega.

    O = 14, W = 21, A = 1, all multiplied together = 3360 and 69/100

    60 = 6 times 10, or F times "kaye", but I ignore the "ciphar" O.

    Making: 33 6 and 69 100:  Bacon, F, NUMBER / FRANCIS BACON.

    And F I N I S:    F in IS      6 + 9 + 18 = 33.

    Get it?

    4 or them are identical in that they start with "O That". The 5th is "O All". The Greek character Theta is transliterated as "Th". The symbol is an O with a horizontal bar across it. The "O all" is typically the O with the dot within it (Omicron).  Theta is the 8th character. 4 eights are 32, and that is how Sonnet 53 starts (with 32 words). 32 is 2^5. These are the 5 dualities that make up Bacon's encryption method. Here we can speak of a duality of O suggestions with Theta and Omicron.

    Omicron is the 15th letter. The Greek value of Theta is 9. 4 x 9=36. Omicron's value is 70. Together they are 106 which is 2x53.

    Using positions. 4 x8=32 + 1 x 15=47. 47+53 are 100.  There are 55 words in this bit of text. 100 +55=155.

    Like I said before, it's not hard to write a compelling story using what one has at his disposition.

    There would be no life on Earth without the fungi mat under our feet. 😉

    They say some spores can survive the radiation from outer space and can be dormant for very long periods of time which makes them great space travelers.

    A thematic reference to "This Side of Paradise" from Star Trek TOS? The planet name was Omicron (monad symbol) Ceti III. It was the spores that resisted the berthold rays that conferred peace, contentment and apparent ever lasting life. Berthold is from German and it means "bright ruler".  It made Spock (a creature of reason) capable of love. The scientist there was named Elias Sandoval. Elias is of course the prophesized one and Sandoval has the etymological meaning of grove or clearing that has been opened. Elias had a little garden of Eden going, made possible by the spores. The script does mention there were no pigs there, so no bacon in paradise.

    I bet if we look back, hogs are as historically connected to us as cats, dogs, cattle, and elephants. Of course mushrooms were first, they taught us how to speak. 😉

     

    This world belongs to fungi. They were here first and they have allodial right to the place. We serve them as best we can.

    An elephant in my living room? No way! LOL

    Yet we all know about being in a room with one! 😉

    Human/Elephant connections go way back. You might know more than me, CJ. I know beautifully decorated tame elephants have been around a while, doing work for us.

    Were there elephants in Egypt when they built the pyramids? Cats were Gods, did they have elephants?

    Cats were not dragging any weight behind them.

    ChatGPT:

    Elephants have been working alongside humans for thousands of years, with the earliest records dating back to around 4,000 years ago in the Indus Valley Civilization. However, it is in ancient India, around 2000 BCE, that we find more detailed evidence of elephants being used for various purposes, including warfare, work, and ceremonial roles.

    image.png.195f2d6d2ea5298503e719c55015adc5.png

    Cultures that will find a use for elephant dung have good reasons to hold them in high esteem.

    I'm not aware of anyone ever producing elephant bacon.

    CJ, I think you have proven to be the Scholarly Western Esoteric expert on the B'Hive. Maybe you have a PHD in Western Esoteric Wisdom?

    But we both know the "Christian" religion in human history is very new, as are all (or most of) of the current religions we typically think of. I do remember meeting a few fascinating Pagans at a mushroom conference in Telluride, CO a few months before hearing of Bacon. I always thought the unconnected events might have been connected somehow. LOL

    Last night I was too exhausted to Baconate and turned on TV and watched a nice documentary about the Mind's of Cats. I think I have even seen it before, but I love cats.

    Someone (a paleontologist?) shared that evidence is discovered that the human and cat relationship goes back 10,000 years ago. Makes sense to me.  I would imagine dogs were in the mix as well.

    Here's my question, did at any point during this end of the ice-age paleo point of time in our evolution did a successful tribe of mammoth hunters on whatever continent adopt a baby mammoth after they killed the mother? And if so, would they have had  the brains to nurture, breed, and tame them? I can't imagine they did not. Ten thousand years is like a tiny fraction of an instance in evolutionary time.

    There are alleged to be between 30-40 species which we have "domesticated". We have tended to form beneficial relationships to serve our purposes (social and nutritional). If it made sense to have an elephant living in my living room, and if I could afford to feed it and maintain its litter box, I might try. Some things just aren't that advantageous to us. It is said to not be that wise to try to befriend a creature that could eat you. That's probably a good rule of thumb.

    I love cats too. We have two, which are named for the Sun and Moon. Of curious note is the fact that one of them we call "the wooly mammoth" because it is quite shaggy and rotund.

    They are godly creatures in that they have men and women providing for them while they sleep to their hearts' content. The shrewdest of humans that have mastered this ability to have others work to keep them (the richest that we have called Lords) we correctly refer to as "smart cats", and they in turn feel they are like Gods over us. The poor quality dried food we feed our cats is not unlike the poor crumbs that are thrown our way by our Lords today.

    Maybe mammoths didn't purr? I read somewhere that they may have had terrible flatulence.

  6. “The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the sun, in which they put a man called Christ in the place of the sun, and pay him the adoration originally payed to the sun.” Thomas Paine, in "The Age of Reason"

    Of course, he is Adonai, YHWH, or the one behind the tetragrammaton who is given to us as Mr. WH, the everlasting poet who is the only begetter of "these Sonnets" and the one who promises all eternity.

    spacer.png

    "Et vidit deus lucem quod esset bona" from Genesis 1:4 is to us: God acknowledged the light to be good.

    "Lucem" here has multiple possible meanings. It can be daylight, it can be illumination and it can be a flash of light(ning).  The imagery presents us with such a flash in the form of a bolt that reaches down to the mundus intellectualis. A suggestion here is that our intellectual world comes out of the flashes of brilliance that "illuminate" us.

    The entire backdrop suggests to us the primordial waters. The one who was known as the "Lord of the primordial waters" and the "Good Lod of the Earth" was Enki who was associated with 40, and thus 4T. 

    "What’s in a name? That which we call a rose

    By Any Other Name would smell as sweet" Romeo and Juliet

    The Rose and the Cross is a version of the telling of the birth and rebirth story. This we might want to suspect was an important part of the messaging of the early Empiricists who had to somehow overcome the inertia of entrenched religion to get us on a path of reason.

    Let's get back to Sonnet 53, because there are some interesting features in the structure of it.

    The first 4 lines in Q1 are 8 words long for a total of 32 words. The Adonis quatrain is made up of 27 words (4 x 27=108 or the perimeter of the perfect idealized square that squares the circle, so to speak).

    Q3 is 32 words again. The last two lines account for 17 words. The total is 32 + 27 + 32 +17=108 once again.

    108 is, of course, the interior angle value of a regular pentagon which houses the star which is here the Sun. The geometric chord of 108 degree is the Golden ratio Phi. This we can have fun with because 108 in Greek is PH. The "i" in the Phi is the Adonis who is the son of the Adon (Canaanite meaning of "My Lord"). If we were to go back to older representations here we would fall back on Enki (40) who was "Good Lord of the Earth" and Tammuz, his son, who was Tau. All these incarnations are versions of a symbolic story that has its origin in the original Sky father associated with the Sun.

    I suppose there's a strong argument to be made here that says that there's no way that a glove maker's son would be in the possession of such depth of knowledge. I don't disagree with the sentiment. There's something in all of this that requires a deep background in many unrelated subjects. You could ascribe a lot to a writer who has read a lot, but that would not translate as well to technical mathematical considerations and with an ease of dealing with alchemical subject matter. 

     

     

     

    Here's the geometric representation of the 53 atop the "pyramid" that we get from the Masonic compass and square.

    spacer.png

    The privileged position that was associated with the pyramidion (the corner of 53 degrees in Freemasonry) or "cap stone" was the representation of the sacred BenBen stone. BenBen was the name of the scared mound that arose from the primordial waters in the Heliopolitan creation myth. It is made from the word root "ben" which means "son". The man made pyramid is a symbol of it. The BenBen stone was a symbol of birth and rebirth. It's association was with the solar deity Atum ( it was where the Atum settled). To have visualized the Sun sitting in the position of the pyramidion would have been the full spectacle. No shadow would have been cast by the pyramid when the center of the Sun would have reached the 53 degree elevation in the sky. 

    The construction of the Great pyramid includes the feature of having the pyramid face be equal to Phi units of length as well as having the pyramid height being the square root of Phi (notice how often the squaring enters the equation) when the unit of measure is the half side of the pyramid base. This is an important aspect of the 2:1 ratio that is seen over and over, including in Rob's rectangle imagined as a calendar mapping where the half side which should ideally be 13.5 has 14 settled upon to echo the fact that each Sonnet is made up of 14 lines instead. What is a man to do to keep the numbers nice and round but round them off?

    spacer.png

    If we consider the Etymology of words, Enki (the Lord of the waters) was later Ea and Ae (ai). The word Adonis is the Hellenistic treatment of Adonai (the identity of the Tetragrammaton we often are presented with) which is from the word root Adon meaning "Lord of Lords" and Ai. Enki (four T) and his son Tammuz (Tau) are fitted into the story in Sonnet 53, imo. The "Ai" is to us similar sounding to the "eye" which later story creators have placed in this privileged position.  In the Masonic treatment of the pyramid which is famously displayed on the US one dollar bill, the pyramid is given by 13 levels + one for the eye. 13 is what divides the number 27 in two 13 unit lengths which yield the number 14 in the middle. 4 x 13 steps is 52 where the one that is left over is for the "eye" that resides at the BenBen location symbolized by 53.

    It can be imagined that the Sun is an eye with its beams emanating in such a way that is gives a visual or physical meaning to all that is under Sun. That seems to be suggested by the last lines in the Sonnet. Nothing else does this. The Sun is unique in its ability to allow us the "see" the world. Without it there is only darkness. The counterpart of the Light deity is Sin, and it had its mountain too. The mount was Sin-Ai that we know as mount Sinai today. If you are born in Sin it has the connotation of being born in darkness (of wisdom). Sin was associated with the moon cults and the cult of Saturn who became the Lord of the Rings in our popular culture. It is interesting that the Christians differentiated themselves from the Jews who were said to be moon worshippers. They kept their Sabbath on the day of Saturn. How crazy we have become with our story telling...I guess the point is to understand that it must not end. We must evolve the stories in order for them to not be static things. Our language has evolved exactly as our stories must. Modern attempts to craft similar stories have led us to star treks and star wars. Presumably, we feel our future is in the stars. It is how we might get to know the Father and his cousins.

    13 x 28, 26 x 14, 52 x 7 all are 364. You brought up the 154 table which I have been holding back on describing. The extra number is 155 with the 11 x 14 table. So in a way, 155 and 365 are in the same place in the Sonnets design.

    155 is the Simple cipher of WILL SHAKESPEARE.

    You said 14 x 154 is 2,156 which is a twelfth of the 25,960 year cycle. A big clock. I remember Kate mentioning this number, or one very close. I don't remember it being divided into 12. But I forget moment to moment.

    The Sonnets have 2,155 lines of text. So being one number off the 2,156, makes them moot. LOL

    Or not...

    I suppose we could take that extra 155 in the table and it would begin with Line 2,156. Can we?

    A few days ago I rediscovered a discovery I have made many times and forget.

    FIFTY TWO and FIFTY THREE both add up to 117 Simple cipher.

    No big deal, right? Strange that 117 kept coming up for me the day I rediscovered that 52 and 53 had the same Simple cipher.

    But there is a thing about that. Strange that FIFTY does it, but it is half of 100.

    ONE HUNDRED TWO and ONE HUNDRED THREE both add up to 157 Simple cipher.

    ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye.

    ONE HUNDRED THREE is 157 Simple and 365 Kaye.

    ONE THOUSAND TWO and ONE THOUSAND THREE both add up to 183 Simple cipher.

    ONE THOUSAND TWO adds up to 183 Simple and 287 Kaye.

    ONE THOUSAND THREE adds up to 183 Simple and 365 Kaye.

    183 is the "Middle" day of the year. There are 182 days before and 182 days after.

    ONE EIGHTY THREE adds up to 183 Simple and 365 Kaye cipher.

    ONE EIGHTY TWO adds up to 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher.

    CJ, try to explain this as being a strategic manipulation in my mind to build my sheep cult following. LOL

    Our words were not created to relay number values unless they were devised to describe ordinal numbers. What you highlight are only the examples which are arbitrary and noteworthy in a secondary imperfect mapping you have catalogued.  It is used to try and impress ideas on people. It is cultish behavior to want to try and establish it as having merit. The cult of celebrity, for example, is based in admiration of celebrity for celebrity's sake. A cult of gematria would only be interested in what supports its "feels".

    There is no design in that. There is no rule of decoding and there is no formalism. Nobody from the past can come and confirm you have guessed right with your sum examples. You could forever be said to be "potentially correct" in any of your interpretations. You maintain that is must mean something because there is so much to show, but it is really more of a plea for acceptance and belief. 

    If there was a method to this madness I could give you a number and you could spit out exactly what word or expression I meant. A mathematical equation would be identifiable and make sense with me giving you a sentence like "The dog barks" if we really had powerful formalisms. It doesn't work that way. How it (language) works is by borrowing root concepts and building and extending with them, which is also how story telling works. One borrows exactly what is elegant and useful in the hopes that it will resonate in a novel way. A God can be improved upon over time by dressing him up in various things with implied meaning. So can a word. A Dagan can become a Pope.

    Similarly, there is no meaning to a human life. One must do all sorts of ill advised mental gymnastics to try and produce something like a meaning that one can then recite to listeners. It is what gets produced that has the potential for  discernable meaning, and the hope is that the audience will allow the transfer to occur. If the sentence making the argument made sense then life would potentially have meaning. When some people speak it is clear to me that life has no meaning and is best thought of as a symbol manipulation game played by characters not unlike the Squire of Gothos in Star Trek.

    It is remarkable enough that we appear to understand each other by writing, but I have come to realize that we probably don't. Only when we agree do we tend to think that the other understands what we are saying.

    Do show me more games. I love games.

    A big clock with symbols instead of numbers. Parts of the sky needed to be given some indexing. Star clusters  identified in a standardized way is a form of alphabet. There is a 2:1 relationship to the 12 zodiac signs and 24 letter alphabet. There may be also 2 cycles (of light and dark) expressed by your life and your death. That is something akin to 2 cycles of 364 days which map to the 27x27 square. It is likely why your life has the symbol of the half ashlar, but who are we to say? We try and use reason to know things we cannot know. For this some will call us sinners. Sin, of course was the Mesopotamian deity of the Moon and wisdom. If we worked on faith alone we would be worthy of being Sun/light worshipers like the Jews and Christians.

    Here's a cool coding of Psalm 19-1 done with star positioning which was imagined during Bacon's lifetime. The Clue to the Labyrinth: Francis Bacon and the Decryption of Nature | The MIT Press Reader  It exploits a rectangular gridding that is based in the binary (2:1 ratio). 2^5=32 which is appears to be the motivation for a division in 320 cells. The human mind works in mysterious ways.

    Of course looking at each Line as a Day is very important.

    Don't know that you have gone to the next Wither's emblem on page 158:

    https://archive.org/details/collectionofembl00withe/page/158/mode/1up?view=theater

    image.png.986e8794d7dda01b5bed90b2230e10f9.png

     

    A year is a quarter of an Olympiad. 27 is also the perimeter value of 1/4 of the 27x27 square. There are more than one elegant way to present things. The Masonic way is to present 27 as the side length of the perfect square ashlar. 27 if we want to speak of "middle ways" is the halfway number in the string of 53 of those. There are 26 on each side of it.

    What is the reference to the many lines produced in three score years? Is that a grid being depicted? If each day was a radius line in a circle what gets given after three score years is a 60 degree wedge. 

    If one line is a day how many days are given by the Sonnets? Isn't it something like 154x14=2156 days=5.9 years. That doesn't look interesting. On the other hand 2156 years in the 25960 year cycle is approximately 1/12, so close to a Great Hour suggestion. This we ought to expect as 60 goes quite well in 360.

    Suffice to say that there is a structure, that 53 and 27 figure in it symbolically. 52 and 26 make more sense for our calendars. To try and square the circle and account for the differences there will always be some fudging. It doesn't quite map 1:1.  364 doesn't map to 364.25 or 360.

    In the first years working with this design I learned to accept that Day 365 was also Day 0. It was the last day or the year, it was the first day of the year. Noon on December 31 was Day 0 hour 12. January 1 began as Day 1 at 12:00:01 AM.

    It was some years after I came to this conclusion that I first saw the Wither's emblem I love to share so much and recognizing how the words relate to the Sonnets design.

    Below is copied and pasted from a post I made a couple years ago:

    Read the words with this emblem:

    image.thumb.png.5ca2501b1aeaba022b7ddd08f0d8482b.png

    Old Sages by the Figure of the Snake
    (Encircled thus) did oft expression make
    Of Annuall-Revolutions; and of things,
    Which wheele about in everlasting-rings;
    There ending, where they first of all begun,
    And, there beginning, where the Round was done.

    The Snake, the ouroboros, 365, annual revolutions, and of things? Wheel about. The Sonnets design cycles repeat, on many levels, one ends and another begins, in so many places so many times!

    By minutes, and by hours, the Spring steales in,

    The Sonnets design is to the seconds, with minutes and hours, and days, weeks, seasons, etc.

    Skip down a bit…

    These Roundells, helpe to shew a Mystery
    Of the immense and blest Eternitie,
    From whence the CREATURE sprung, and, into whom
    It shall, againe, with full perfection come,
    When those Additions, it hath fully had,
    Which all the sev’rall Orbes of Time can add.

    First line of the Sonnets, “From fairest creatures we desire increase

    These Roundels, the cycles, help to show a Mystery? About Eternity?

    Wilkins is hinting at something, any idea? I have my thoughts.

    It is a full, and fairly written Scrowle,
    Which up into it selfe, it selfe doth rowle ;
    And, by Vnfolding, and Infolding, showes
    A Round, which neither End, nor entrance knowes.
    And (by this Emblem) you may partly see,
    Tis that which I S , but, cannot uttred be.

    Wilkin’s Emblem is an overt reference to Shakespeare’s Sonnets, and by claiming it is a "fairley written Scrowle" he is suggesting it was written by Royalty with the "Scrowle" being the Sonnets. "A Round, which neither End, nor entrance knowes." Because it has so many spheres that it never ends, every end eats it tail and begins new, on many levels.

    And, by the Emblem, one may only “partly” see, "Tis that which is, but cannot uttered be."

    Wilkin's "365" Emblem hints, but does not explain. Yet, he is referring to the Sonnets design, and it's purely mathematical Time structure. Being on page 157 reinforces that connection.

    You've treated the entirety of the Sonnets as a year and have given no weight to the idea that it could represent a period of 2 or 4 years instead? What if it was supposed to be like an Olympiad (a show of respect for Zeus) in his victory over Kronos and time?

    The illustration uses 26 letter characters + 1 rondelle for the cycle. That is 27 symbols in total. 27, coincidentally, is the total number of gears in the main gear train of the Antikythera mechanism. It displayed the 4 year period as well as the solar year (even the Egyptian year). It also displays a division of 14, but that is in the context of the Saros eclipse cycle calculation. It is also displaying the Metonic cycle which is what was believed to have been used to set calendars (thus time). That one is based in 20 eclipse yeas and 40 eclipse seasons. That is our ever present 2T and 4T suggestion which is found together.

    I'm afraid that the Greek inscription here is not of much help as ENIAUTOS (Latin reading) translates to "cycle of time" and or "year". Both are accepted meanings. Is the cycle of time only fully accounted for every 4 years when we add a day? It is certainly the most precise definition of the unit cycle of time which is not making an irritating scale error. All smaller subdivisions of the Greater Year (4 year) we use need to be fudged to not throw us into a loop in our time keeping.

    According to Strong's concordance. ENIAUTOS, or versions of it, appears 14 times in the Greek Bible. It has the meaning of the "Lord's year" in one instance. There's no indication what the Lord used for a fundamental unit cycle of time. We could imagine that it is a Great Year (25 960 years) which brings all the stars back to where they were when the cycle started. This does return us to the question of how many astronomical cycles were appreciated by the Greeks. They certainly knew the length of time associated with the Earth turning around itself, of the Earth turning around the Sun and of the Stars turning around the equinoxes (due to precession). I am not aware that they were keeping time with our relative positioning by keeping track of the Milky way (galactic plane).

    26 in weeks is a half year. 14 half years would be 7 years. Is that a Greater Year of unit time? The block could be like a Great Week that is echoing the 7 days of creation. This to say that we are not really helped by recognizing numbers in knowing what is going on symbolically. 

    The image in interesting. It reminds me of the temple of Apollo in the Star Trek Episode. Swimming in the water there are swans. There appears to be a nice oak forest around the temple which is contrasted with the dying oak in the foreground.

    The inscription which was "fairly" written is taken from Virgil in "Georgics". It means "in itself and in its own, through the tracks, it rolls on".

    We're dealing with infinity symbols and with the idea that ends are new beginnings here. Resurrections are mentioned. 

    Keep in mid that all this is echoed in alchemy by the 7 stages of transformation (perhaps another allusion to 7 we need to consider and put emphasis on). On the two ends of that cycle are calcination and coagulation. Calcination is the creative fire of the Phoenix. Coagulation is the "crown of creation" where the elements solidify in the culmination of the master work. It is no sooner achieved that it returns to the ashes. "Crown of creation", as well as calcination and coagulation are perhaps invoking CC pairs that can be seen as 33.

    Returning to the Antikythera mechanism for a bit of a side note, I've been intrigued by the inscriptions on the eclipse dial divisions which tell the observer about the nature of the solar or lunar eclipse that might be seen on a predicted day. There is, for example:

    spacer.png

    The top three characters refer to the moon. The bottom three to the Sun (H is for Helios). The odd middle character in both is a symbol made up of three letters that spell the Greek for "hour", ora. The third symbol is the "monad". It is actually indexing the Greek alphabet in a way that is supposed to give us the hour of the day. Omicron (it shows the little "o" which is the dot) is the 15th letter of the 24 character Greek alphabet. You are supposed to read from this that there is going be either a solar or Lunar eclipse on the 15th hour of the day. I think this is a great practical example of how one pointed to a time with a letter symbol correspondence. I had the thought that I might forward this to the Lagina brothers on Oak Island to confuse them even more with their musings about the infamous H+O stone fragment which is oddly quite similar. The Greek cross and 4 pellet motif is used there instead of the fancy invention seen in the Antikythera inscription.

    I had come up with several combining odd and even numbers (13x28, 7x52, 4x91, etc.).

    Only 14x26 (or 26x14) I knew of with even and even rows and columns which makes the center between numbers. But yes, 2x182 is even and even and is perfect as well! 🙂

     

     

    There's something in all this business that does seem to want to resonate. Take this leftover 1 that you are dealing with in your scheme. This is very similar to the the extra 1 day that we account for every 4 years in our calendar. The 4 year period was important to the Greeks. It was called an Olympiad. The Olympic games were a symbolic celebration of Zeus' victory over Kronos (time). 4 years is 4x364 days=1456 days. If that was a cycle or circle of importance then the idea of squaring the circle (which can only ever be approached approximately) may ask that we define a square that is close enough to be of symbolic use. That square is 27 by  27. if you split the 4 year cycle in two 728 days you will notice that 27x27=729. The difference is one again.

    There rectangle one would have wanted to use would work best if we could use fractions. 13.5 x 27 (=364.5) would be awesome. But seeing that we are dealing in Sonnets that are 14 lines in length the obvious choice is to use 14x26 and call that fine enough. 26 is excellent for indexing to the alphabet (1:1).

    As far as globes and time go we managed to get to something similar with out 24 time zones which account for 15 degrees of longitude each. 24 x 15= 360. We could have just as easily defined 26 of 14, but there is something rather nice in having 360 degrees in a circle which has appeal to time measurement expressed in units of 60 (minutes and hours).

    Could one somehow code and alphabet onto a globe? Sure, why not? You'd need some latitude specifications. Those we can get from celestial declination values. if 40 is of interest to us then Cygnus will be of use.

    Thank you for keeping an eye out. The 14 x 26 table is still mostly unknown. I don't understand why, it is a good one.

    Centuries ago magic tables were the rage. Even then this one was not in print, but surely known even if a secret.

    image.png.c5c00ed3ec152b040b7fed68539f70b7.png

    26 rows, 14 columns, and 365 alone in column O.

    Even without the sonnets it is an amazing design. But even now a Google search has zero results for anything about this table.

    Is it magic as far as math?

    Well, Row A and Col A is 001, add that to Row Z and Col N which is 364 you have 365.

    Also Row Z Col A is 026 and add to Row A Col N, 339 to get 365.

    image.png.e476a91236de7408eb1724fe5f19bde3.png

    In fact any lines crossing the center with equal rows/cols add up to 365.

    AG (157) + ZH (208) = AO (365)

    AH (183) + ZG (182) = AO

    GA (007) + TN (358) = AO

    So on, even the lines inside the table that cross the center:

    ME (117) + NJ (248) = AO

    image.png.91d1af16e1127b44140e2e364b1de38f.png

    I suppose this kind of mathematical table is very common, but this is the only one that adds up to 365. Right?

     

     

    It works because of symmetry. This would work the same if there were just 2 rows of 182 lines. In fact it would work as well with one row of 364 lines. Moving up one line has the same value as moving down one line.  You visualize that by drawing a horizontal line of 364 characters and identifying the middle in by counting 182 spaces. No matter how many you rob from one side you are adding the same amount when you move in the other direction. This is absolutely not anything special. It's symmetry and and related to the fact that each position has one unit of value. the 1:1 ratio gives it the high symmetry. How one parses the lines or columns has no effect. The symmetry must be maintained.

    It boggles the mind that we would be given 14B 26 Index. It makes sense that it has a value of 40 since 14+ 26=40. Clever use of the scheme by the writer of the script. There's almost zero chance this was derived from the Sonnets cosideration, though. Why focus on 40, though?

    I have something for you Rob. While reading the transcript of the episode "Who Mourns for Adonais" I noticed that the scan that was performed by Tchekov is on sector "14B by 26 index" 14 by 26=364. That's your Sonnet rectangle. 14 is the number of lines per Sonnets.

    Also, weirdly, Carolyn Palamas' designation is the AA officer (for Anthropology and Archaeology).

    The only other number referenced in the dialogue is 22, which I cannot stop seeing as Twenty-Two or two twenties (4T), lol.

    There is one reference to Hermes where Apollo tells him that he was right before he fades away.

    Hi CJ,

    This is very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    Just for the anecdote. 🙂 

    On June 18, 2023, as I was deciphering one passage of the First Folio,  I noticed the word "HINT" in the middle of this passage and a reference to Bacon.

    30 min later, I decided to take a break and to watch a video on youtube.

    Amongst the notifications, there was the first episode of Star Trek : Strange New Worlds.

    At that time, the full episode was available on youtube.

    I decided to watch it, remembering that the last time that I had decided to take a break to watch one Star Trek film that I had never seen, when I turned on my television I came across the following scene ...

     

    What was waiting for me in the first Episode of Star Trek : Strange New worlds ?

  20. There is a bit of a side story here that can be found in "Star Trek" where there's already been a recognized effort to mix in the Shakespearean themes in the writing. In the episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?" we will discern that the air date for the episode was September 22 (the Fall equinox), 1967. It was episode 2 of season 2. The episode had production code 33.  It is quite interesting that Apollo loses his power in this episode when his Temple is destroyed and, ultimately, when his followers reject him (when his heavy handed attempt at "loving" the crew has been spurned).

    Mourning Adonis is something that has a Shakespearean reference as well a Biblical one. This occurred at the MidSummer festival. "Adonais" is from a work of poetry where it has the meaning Gods. The title is a line from a Percy Shelley work which mourns John Keats.

    The female love interest in the episode in question is given the name Carolyn Palamas. The etymology of the name informs us that Carolyn is from "free man".  Palamas is a region of Greece. The name has entered the religious philosophical lexicon (Palamism, Palamites...)because of Saint Gregory Palamas who famously defended the Eastern Orthodox idea that man could become God like through deification (theosis) and the character (or substance) of the uncreated light of transfiguration. 

    Apollo "dies" in this episode by his light fading away which is at a least a proper way to pay homage to the original meaning of dying.

    There are various elements in this story that conjure up some suggestions. The Enterprise was first seized by a giant green hand when it had been captured. The green hand symbolism can be interpreted as a reference to a novice sailor  and to be in the grip of of something strong. That is perhaps making allusion to the fact that the voyages to the "undiscovered country" are only starting for humans. Losing the Gods may only be the start of it. Perhaps the journey is about being more God-like in our own self pursuits. Who knows? Have we become free men for rejecting the Gods and no longer being in their grip? Perhaps so, but are we sailing without bearings?

    That was an interesting read. I enjoyed the interview that touches on Sonnet 53 which involves Adonis. I was just speaking of Adonis and his relationship to the Sun God Tammuz (Tau) with Rob.

    I had to go to Sonnet 53 and see what the Acrostic suggestion mentioned looked like. It is true that one can coax out Adonis with a bit of bending of the Acrostic rules.

    I concur that the Sonnet is actually a description of the Sun in the first stanza (as opposed to some fair youth). It is the substance of the Sun that we are asked about, and it is its ability to have a cast shadow be attached to all things that is described. 

    To have placed this in Sonnet 53 is fitting since it is the well known Hebrew Gematria value for the word Hamah which is for "Sun" (and also fire).

    If we were to describe the substance of the Sun by employing the descriptions of Adonis we would not be helped by the "counterfeit". Tammuz in "Grecian tires" is Adonis. That's how the Greeks dressed up their version of that Sun God. This is compared to how all of the beauty in art was captured by the attributes of Helen (the symbol of beauty).

    In Q 3 we are also given a recognizable allusion to the season of plenty which follows Spring.

    It closes with a pair of lines which just about ascribes all living things to its existence while saying that none are like it "in heart".

    This is very close to the German mystic Jakob Böhme's writings on the Sun contained in "Aurora", ca 1600. I would not typically attribute this to a mainstream Christian. Böhme was a major influence on Rosicrucian thinking, it is said.

     

     

    There are interesting things we can add here. In the Ptolemaic system of spheres the 4th Sphere was the Sun's. This was echoed in the creation story where the Sun is created on the 4th day.

    The 53 we already have seen is the top angle of the compass in the Masonic compass and square motif. It is there atop the triangle. This is relatable to a possible visual which one can observe atop the Great Pyramid when the Sun's elevation is such that the bottom of it is just atop its apex. As it happens the pyramid will not have a cast shadow when it is there. That is on account of the fact that the pyramid sides are inclined by 51.84 degrees.  At 53 degrees of elevation the Sun's base can be seen sitting on the pyramidion's position casting no shadow. This would have a certain amount of eye appeal. Regarding how the pyramid's base corners were aligned to the cardinal points, it has been surmised that the method of casting a shadow using a gnomon stick upon a flat platform was employed. At the Fall equinox the Sun will produce a gnomon shadow whose tip will travel on a line that is East-West all day. In truth this is a very good approximation only. The error produced is the one which is today observed in the cardinal point alignment of the corners of the Great pyramid (small but recognizable). This informs us that the casting of shadows is very much central to the understood properties of the Sun. Interestingly the Fall equinox is on September 22 (day 265 of 365 in our calendar; 100 are left). The day and month here are suggestive of 22/7 which was the Greek approximation of pi (the constant of circles). This is purely coincidental and related to the fact that the Roman calendar shifted in 153 BCE. Prior to that September was the 7th month.

    What is also interesting is the idea that the passage into the astronomical age of Pisces occurred at a standardized 53 BCE (as opposed to our 1 BCE today). This would have made the birth of the incarnation of the Sun God's son occur on what we call year 53 (our zero). This would be a fitting birth year for the symbol of the Sun God in his new Grecian tires (wearing a Sun disk around his head to boot). It also has the interesting consequence of having Christos die 88 (53+33) years into the age and for the fall of Jerusalem to have happened 123 years into it (123 is famously tied to 6 by 1+2+3=1x2x3 and the star of David). If you divide the symmetries in the representation of 88 with mirror planes you get a Greek cross suggestion and the familiar motif of the cross and four pellets (which predates Christianity and was assimilated by it). Each circle is said to represent an element (first), a cardinal point (later) and an evangelist (lastly). By the year 1100 the symbol had been adapted to the Cross of Jerusalem.

    The death at 88 idea makes the cross center take on the meaning of the point of alchemical conjunction (the 4th alchemical transformation). It is therefore quite well suited for the birth and rebirth story that was once Tammuz' story (he who was Tau). The fact that the Christos symbol's adventures are characterized by references to periods of 40 should perhaps not surprise us that much if we consider that his father was Enki. In him we also have the 4"O" suggestion.

    Regarding the musicality of O, o, o, o it should also be said that this reflects the musical inclination to put an accent on the first beat in 4/4 time. This produces what has been called the driving beat which pushes music along. The reason for it is apparently that it is what pleases us most. The inclusion of the drum makes us think of a march, and to our lives as a steady march towards death. Coincidentally, March was the first of the year prior to 153 BCE. It was the date when the cycle restarted.

    Hi CJ,

    Indeed, I had a thought for your work on the Four fold alphabet when I posted my comment. 🙂 

    Here is the reference :

    https://francisbaconsociety.co.uk/baconiana-journals/baconiana-journals-2007-present/baconiana-vol1-no3/

    The Four fold Alphabet was deduced from the fragment of the Abecedarium Novum Naturae (Baconiana. Or certain genuine remains of Sr. Francis Bacon- 1679).

    That was an interesting read. I enjoyed the interview that touches on Sonnet 53 which involves Adonis. I was just speaking of Adonis and his relationship to the Sun God Tammuz (Tau) with Rob.

    Regarding the "O,o,o,o" did someone already draw a parallel with Francis Bacon's Alphabet of Nature ? 

    I suppose so.

    This is a fourfold alphabet based on a 24 Letter Alphabet , the first Inquisition being Alpha and the 24th inquisition Omega.

    Francis Bacon mentions the threefold Omega that is the 72nd inquisition (Meteors), and stops at the 78th inquisition that is the fourfold Zeta.

    The fourfold Omega would be the last (96th) inquisition of his fourfold Alphabet ... THE END !

    I can't find any reference to the description such an alphabet. Do you have one? I see that there is a paper written by a James North which concerns Bacon's Alphabet of Nature and the Triple Tau.

    I'm interested in this suggestion, because of the elegance of the arrangement of four 24 letter alphabet blocks (96 characters) in a 10x 10 grid. It leaves 4 empty cells that form an inner "tomb". The entire representation is suggestive a cross and 4 pellet motif. The value of the 24 characters is 300, which is the Greek value of Tau. This fourfold alphabet representation has much to say about the spatial mirror symmetries of nature (chirality of nature).

    Mystery solved.

    IMG_1441.jpeg.cde91eccaef13bd3539494abcb12cd94.jpeg
     

    We all know that codes and cipher may sometimes appear as acrostics, sometimes page numbers or word counts in names, text length, symbolism etc., etc., and it’s fun speculating but, for the record, seeing codes and cipher absolutely everywhere in the Shakespeare plays is not something I can get onboard with. 

    I said I have a healthy level of scepticism. Perhaps healthy level of critical thinking would have been a better expression. It has to make sense to me why something would have been ‘encoded’.

    Here though, buried away 3000+ lines in, within a massive compilation of plays, I choose to think the 0000s are literally just oooos, as in ooohs and aaahs, hence the small s. I almost wish I hadn’t raised it now!  Nothing against everyone else engaging in speculation. It’s interesting to read. Just want to make my personal position clear.

    Wait for the devil's advocate... What have you solved for yourself here that was not already known by others who knew it when they used it? What is guiding anyone to use any number of Os he wants? Nobody on this Earth would ever have suggested that the Os where there to overtly point you to a Shakespearean authorship mystery. The question is why there are repetitions of 3, 4 or 5 words. Macbeth is full of allusion to groups of threes. Why would there be, in dying, four Os used? Why this choice of number? Why not just save the ink and use 3? The choice is for effect, and the desired effect could in fact be related to a mysterious rationale that is infused in just about every choice an author makes in the picking of his details.

    I am more of the opinion that any effect here would have to be in the immediate context of what is given. Death is given with a fourfold repetition of O in the context of sound. The most curious might ask why on Earth we ever decided to favor 4 beats to the measure in music. Is even that arbitrary and explained away by simply saying that this is how it is done. There are always choices that come and inform what becomes standardized. This is true of the foot or the meter. I find it fascinating to think that one could come to write with such a level of playful consideration, but we do know that this is exactly what some have done in the history of literature. To know what is going on is another matter. With that we rely on trends and on the imagination. We have no way to know that what tickles us was intended to do that in exactly the way it does.

    This is true of all manipulation of symbols. One person writes using them and another reads something into it that isn't always intended. We are at a loss to know what to do with our own recognitions.

    7 words and 14 characters have the letters, "I F Bacon, I Tudor".

    3 letters on the first line, 6 on the second, and 5 on the third, or 365, another Circle.

    I never realized that 3+6+5 is 14. 365 is a year, a big circle, and 14 is the letter O in Bacon's 24 letter alphabet used in the First Folio and another circle. Are all these O's in Hamlet's dying speech, his final words while dying, all symbolic circles within circles, a verbal illusion creating confusion yet speaking Truth?

    This works as a suggestion. Would you be so impressed by it that you would immediately accept the meaning you ascribe to it? This is also perfectly aligned with the suggestion that someone is serving you a potent poison. That one would have to be completely rejected on the basis that it is not something that you would want to believe. 

    4x14=64, which is 8 x 8 or 4 circles spatially arranged to evoke the thought of a number in you. it might get you thinking of 88 which is nothing but 8 given 11 times. You might want to represent that with 4 characters displaying their own symmetry with 1881.

    The 4th stage of alchemical transformation is Conjunction (divine union). It is the dance of two becoming one – conjunction is the cosmic romance which is given to us by the story of Adonis and Aphrodite that we recall from "Metamorphoses". Elements that were apart now intertwine, creating a harmonious whole.

    This came to mind from the consideration of a cosmology that is given by the 7 concentric circles that extend to heaven. Each of the circles is an alchemical stage in transformation. It (the fourth circle) certainly does resonate with the notion of dying and fusing.

    The A-A myth is of course the Western version of the story of Tammuz (the Sun God) and Inanna. Tammuz is the oldest of the Gods that is pointed to by the Tau symbol. His father was Enki who is symbolized by 40. You can think of 4-Os coming from 40. They are Father and Son. Tammuz' story was all the rage in Tudor times. It made up an important part of the Histories of the World, so it was known.  Many works touched on him, including some of the Shakespearean ones. He is the prototype for the death and rebirth story. 

    The name Fortinbras is from the French for "strong in arms", but it is also quite suggestively "for T" in its beginning. Four Ts are in fact referred to as making up the arms of the cross.

    I suppose we can build even further with this to show that the cross and four pellet motif is quite ancient (from Greek times before Christianity). This speaks of a great borrowing from stories that come to generate a more universal story with the power to stir and convince. Who really plays at such games anyway? The answer is that humans do. The player in us is given a name in myth. He never ceases to want to play. He desperately wants to convince, because that is the culmination of transforming minds with suggestions. He is a trickster.
