I’m hoping to revive this thread as I’m expecting there to be an uptick in searches for info about Francis Bacon, Atlantis and the question ‘Did Bacon found America?’.  So for those who land here it will provide some information.

AP has a brilliant paper on it above and half my ebook at The-Secret-Work.com is about this very subject.

I’m still having a run of synchronicities and here  you can see a tweet I screenshotted

as I had also just seen this tweet3A59553F-6619-44A7-8FE8-BD599AFD2BCA.jpeg.b6c00637947a007afc58de1e79aec6a2.jpeg

Here’s a zoom in. This is a poem -a Sonnet, no less - on a wall plaque on the Statue of Liberty

I don’t expect there to be code or cipher in here, there would be no reason to add it here, but what it does do is link in the word Tempest and a reference to the Rosicrucian lamp and the female twin to the male Colossus counterpart. I thought it was all mildly interesting.

                                      FRANCIS BACON-SHAKESPEARE FATHER OF THE MODERN REPUBLICAN DEMOCRATIC WESTERN WORLD.

In his recent masterly and groundbreaking edition of Bacon’s History of Henry VII Professor Weinberger reveals its importance to the rise of modern republicanism and the politics of progress which ingeniously presents a picture of a modern democratic state that now characterises the western hemisphere and much of the rest of the world:    

The History is a window to the spirit of modern politics and government…secularism, utilitarianism, republicanism, and democracy....

    It presumes that Bacon had a reason for making the History so hard to penetrate. Obviously, he must have meant for many readers-perhaps most-to misunderstand it in some way. Why on earth would he want to do this? For the following reasons. Bacon wanted to pave the way for a society based on modern science and technological progress. Such a society would be essentially egalitarian, because the efforts of the few, scientists and inventors, would serve the desires of the many… But he lived in a monarchy and could not wish it away, and so he had to use the existing forms of political power as a means to his own ends. This meant advising monarchs to do what he knew was, in the long run, not in their interests-certainly tricky and even dangerous.

   …the truly discerning and daring will understand, when they add everything up, that the History actually shows the way to a world in which kings are no longer necessary.

[Jerry Weinberger, ed., Francis Bacon The History of the Reign of King Henry the Seventh (Ithaca and London: Cornell University Press, 1996), pp. 213, 218.]

Hi Rob, 

I seem to recall Rob a painting of Lord Bacon addressing the Young Of the United States of America (might have been in Charlotte/National Treasure) do you know where it is and can you place in the new FB and the US thread and any other portraits of FB relating to the US. Thank you.

Funny I have known this image for many years, but Google is not giving me my answer.

I feel the Hall's are involved, Marie maybe? But I do not remember. It's been on SirBacon.org for many years, I do know that.

Poking around, but my wife broke a tooth and I'm taking her to her dentist in a bit. Ouch...

EDIT:

As far as I know, they are well over 20 years old and I doubt anyone has paid for renewing a copyright.

I know the images from being on SirBacon.org for 20 years at least. Nobody has ever contacted us to ask for credit. But Lawrence may know more.

I think you are fine to use though. 🙂

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

FRANCIS BACON SECRET FOUNDING FATHER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

 

The identity of the original Founding Father of the United States of America, namely Francis Bacon-Shakespeare (known to his Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood) has been carefully concealed, hidden and obscured from the conventional pages of history and the pages of his orthodox editors and biographers. But it was certainly known to Alexander Brown who cryptically reveals it to us in The Genesis of the United States.

The first page of his preface which sits immediately above the passage quoted above very deliberately produces the following apposite words from Lord Bacon:

“As in arts and sciences to be the first inventor is more than to illustrate or amplify; and as in the works of God the creation is greater than the preservation; and as in the works of nature the birth and nativity is more than the continuance; so in kingdomes the first foundation or plantation is of more noble dignity and merit than all that followeth. And the foundation that makes one of none, resembles the creation of the world, which was de nihilo ad quid.”-SIR FRANCIS BACON.1

FRANCIS BACON SECRET FOUNDING FATHER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

In the June of 1609 under Sir George Somers, Admiral of the Fleet, a fleet of ships set sail from Plymouth with men and supplies to strengthen the colony. On 24 July one of the ships the Sea Venture carrying Sir Thomas Gates and William Strachey, who was to be appointed Secretary to the Council, was caught up in a fierce tempest off the coast of Bermuda where they became separated from the rest of the fleet and ran aground on the islands. The ship became wedged between rocks but fortunately everyone got safely ashore. The rest of the ships successfully made it to Virginia. After building two ships during the winter in Bermuda the shipwrecked crew arrived at Jamestown in May 1610 and joined up with the rest of the expedition. The first arrivals found the colony in Jamestown in an appalling state. Many of the colonists had died in the winter of starvation and provisions were still low and disease rampant. In the absence of any direct authority anarchy reigned with the whole colony on the point of collapse. News began to reach England that some of the key figures had been lost at sea. In an attempt to allay the growing disquiet and to raise much needed funds the Virginia Council entered in the Stationers’ Register on 14 December 1609 A Trve and Sincere declaration of the purpose and ends of the Plantation begun in Virginia which was most probably published shortly after.1 The text of this original rare edition was reprinted for the first time by Brown, which he believed ‘contains more historical information regarding our foundation than any other publication of the authorities, or authorized by them.’2 The True and Sincere Declaration states D. G. James in The Dream of Prospero (Oxford Clarendon Press, 1967) is ‘a masterly, noble, and moving document, and was heavy with destiny for the future of England and the United States.’3

      FRANCIS BACON SECRET FOUNDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND HIS ANONYMOUS AUTHORSHIP OF TWO KEY FOUNDATION TEXTS.

On 8 November 1610 the Virginia Council of London entered on the Stationers’ Register a second similarly entitled document A Trve Declaration of the estate of the Colonie in Virginia, with a confutation of such scandalous reports as haue tended to the disgrace of so worthy an enterprise.1 The identity of the anonymous author of these two historically prophetic documents issued under the auspices of the Virginia Council has never been fully determined and until recently has attracted very little or no discernible attention and are not referred to or discussed by Bacon's orthodox editors and biographers: 

 After giving a series of lectures in the University of Oxford in 1950, which were firstly chiefly taken up with exploring Hamlet and King Lear in relation to Bacon’s Advancement of Learning, D. G. James delivered a further series of lectures on the play The Tempest in The Dream of Prospero wherein he ‘tried to see Shakespeare and Francis Bacon in comparison with each other as prophets and makers of the modern world.’2 A part of his work relating to the Baconian-Shakespearean The Tempest is devoted to a brief history of the colonisation of Virginia leading him to examine the two documents issued by the supreme authority of its council: 

 A True Declaration requires to be read as a document which, in its ordering of fact and argument, and in its majestic eloquence, exceeds only A True and Sincere Declaration in communicating to us the feel and pressure of the time in its resolve to create a new English world and a vast extension of the Kingdom of Man.

The Kingdom of Man! The phrase is Francis Bacon’s, who in the New Atlantis was to speak of ‘enlarging the bounds of human empire’. To whom did the Virginia Council turn to compose the Declarations, so critical for the future of civilization in the West? We need to remember that the meetings of the Council were held in secrecy. To whom, of their number, would they turn? I do not doubt that it was to the Solicitor-General, incomparably the greatest advocate and orator of the age. The writer of A True Declaration ‘professeth that he will relate nothing (concerning Virginia) but what he hath from the secrets of the iudiciall councell of Virginia from the letters of Lord La Ware, from the mouth of Sir Thomas Gates, whose wisdomes (he conceiueth) are not so shallow, as easily to be deceiued of others nor consciences so wretched, as by pretences to deceiue others’. He was clearly a person of great position and authority; and he does not hesitate to use the first person singular: nor had the writer of A True and Sincere Declaration.

…Bacon’s authorship of the Declarations, or, at the least, his great hand in their composition, becomes clear to anyone who, having read over the Declarations, recalls, or then reads over, others of Bacon’s writings. To read over the first book of The Advancement of Learning is to see the same style, ordonnance, and learning at work as show themselves in the Declarations; or again, there are Of the True Greatness of the Kingdom of Britain (1608), and An Advertisement touching an Holy War (1622); there are also, smaller in scope, the essays Of the True Greatness of Kingdoms and Estates and Of Plantations. The same hand is to be seen in all.

The reader of the two Declarations will see that the first is plainer, more direct, and less learned than the second; it is in the second that Bacon exercises his full armoury, both in its depth or argumentation and in its manner: it is full of Bacon’s magnanimity, and that ‘high learning, which he wore with as little concealment as a diamond’. But in the first are the words which I quoted earlier from the prayer with which A True and Sincere Declaration ends, where we read of the ‘nourishing’ of the ‘graine of seed, that it may spread till all the people of the earth admire the greatnesse, and seeke the shades and fruite thereof’. This image recurs again and again, in the writings to which I have just referred. In Of the True Greatness of the Kingdom of Britain, written, it seems, in 1608, we read that ‘the true greatness of kingdoms upon earth is not without some analogy with the kingdom of Heaven, as our Saviour describes it: which he doth resemble not to any great kernel or nut, but to one of the least grains, but yet such a one as hath a property to grow and spread’.3

    1. Anon., A Trve Declaration Of The estate of the Colonie in Virginia, With a

       confutation of such scandalous reports as haue tended to the disgrace of so

       worthy an enterprise. Published by the advise and direction of the Councell of

       Virginia (London: printed by William Barret, 1610).

Well this is mighty interesting,

“On 8 November 1610 the Virginia Council of London entered on the Stationers’ Register a second similarly entitled document “

has anyone ever noticed that the First Folio was dated 8 Nov 1623.

That has passed me by. November 8 is Day 312, the final day of the 12th Tier.

http://www.light-of-truth.com/pyramid-GMT.php#Day312

image.png.b9b749373095ed7e66eec1551db8934e.png

Tier 13 begins with Sonnet 133 and Day 313. It is sealed coming in and going out.

The 11 letter Simple cipher of the first letters (Lines 2-12) of Sonnet 133 is 102.

image.png.e9ca89872e6e2f90f6f4dfe6a686f3da.png

ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye ciphers.

The final Line of Tier 13 is Line 2001.

image.png.6d31a58e40c9414dfa17bfd73bd0b0ee.png

TWO THOUSAND ONE is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher.

Line 2001 which ends Tier 13 lives in Sonnet 143. The Simple cipher of the first letters of all 14 lines is 177, the Simple cipher for WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

http://www.light-of-truth.com/pyramid-GMT.php#cipherSonnet143

image.png.b5e1ce9f586d200d81ba80f0414506d0.png

But as soon as you leave the 13th Tier you begin the 14th Tier with Sonnet 144. 144 is the Simple cipher of SIR FRANCIS BACON.

NOVEMBER EIGHT is 136 Simple cipher, the same as BACON-SHAKESPEARE. And we see that BACON-SHAKESPEARE is 143 Simple cipher using the 26 letter codes. November 8 is the final Day of Sonnet 143 and the 12th Tier.

What an amazing pattern of numbers in the Sonnets Pyramid design! 😉

                FRANCIS BACON, THE STRICT SECRECY OF THE VIRGINIA COMPANY, AND A SOURCE FOR HIS SHAKESPEARE PLAY THE TEMPEST

For self-evident reasons the Virginia Council of which Bacon was the key member attached strict secrecy to all communications, manuscripts and writings relating to the colony that it did not want conveying to the public, that might in any way jeopardise the success of the project and future of the North American continent.

In addition to A Trve and Sincere declaration of the purpose and ends of the Plantation begun in Virginia and A Trve Declaration of the estate of the Colonie in Virginia both anonymously written by Bacon it is also certain that Bacon made use of Strachey’s True Reportory of the Wrack dated 15 July 1610 (not published until 1625) for the latter A True Declaration is a direct and immediate source for his New World masterpiece The Tempest. The first recorded performance of The Tempest took place on 1 November 1611 at the royal court of James I. It opens with an inspired dramatic enactment of the tempest faced by the Sea Venture which occurred off the coast of Bermuda as the colonists headed to Virginia, location of the first permanent English settlement in North America-a dramatic symbolic portrayal, representing the birth of what became the United States of America.

FRANCIS BACON'S SHAKESPEARE PLAY THE TEMPEST A ROSICRUCIAN MANIFESTO AND DRAMATIC REFLECTION OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE NEW WORLD.

The special play occupies a unique place in Shakespearean dramatic literature and for that reason is deliberately printed as the first play in the Shakespeare First Folio.  Its central God-like figure the scientific-philosopher Prospero is a complex dramatic portrait made in the image of his creator, the scientific-philosopher Francis Bacon, Founding Father of Modern Science and the Modern World. Through his all-knowing and all-seeing mind the scientific-philosopher Prospero/Bacon controls the world and destiny of humankind and can be seen as the commander-in-chief of the Rosicrucian Brothers who govern the invisible Salomon’s House in his New Atlantis (Land of the Rosicrucians), with Solomon’s House, or Solomon’s Temple, the central legend of its outer body, the Freemasonry Brotherhood. The Tempest described by Dr Yates as a ‘Rosicrucian manifesto’,1 is a condensed dramatic reflection of the discovery of the New World of North America and New Atlantis (orThe Land of the Rosicrucians) a philosophical & scientific blueprint for what became the United States of America, whose coeval the first Rosicrucian manifesto the Fama Fraternitatis, was first issued with their divine statement of intent of The Universal of the Reformation of the Whole World.

THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ROSICRUCIAN-FREEMASONRY BROTHERHOOD INTO THE NEW WORLD.

Several writers have commented upon the likely date when Freemasonry was most probably introduced into the United States of America. In Freemasonry in all Ages Reverend Carey, Associate of the Philosophical Society of Great Britain, commented ‘We are furnished with no documentary evidence of the introduction of Freemasonry into the United States; but it appears that it had an existence there as early as the year 1606.’1 In The Temple and the Lodge under the heading ‘Freemasonry and American Independence’ Baigent and Leigh were also familiar with the belief Freemasonry was transplanted to the New World at the time of the Jamestown settlement:

According to some traditions, a form of Freemasonry or proto-Freemasonry came to the New World as early as the Jamestown settlement of 1607 and established itself in Virginia, working to promote the kind of idealised society outlined twenty years later by Francis Bacon in such works as The New Atlantis. This possibility cannot entirely be discounted. The ‘Rosicrucian’ thinkers of the early seventeenth century were obsessively aware of the opportunities America offered for the idealised social blueprints that figured so prominently in their work. So, too, were the members of the ‘Invisible College’ which eventually became visible in the form of the Royal Society. It would be most surprising if at least something of their ideas did not find its way across the Atlantic. In any case, the first transplantations of Freemasonry to America, when and wherever they occurred, would have been as inevitable, as routine, as predictable and, initially, as devoid of major consequence as the transplantation of other English attitudes and institutions. No one could have foreseen the significance these transplantations would quickly assume.2 

A less diffident Manly P. Hall confidently states:

After the Jamestown settlement gained some semblance of order and permanence, descendants of those men who formed the original Baconian Society left England and settled in the colony. It was through them that the Great Plan began to operate in America. There were most fortuitous marriages between the families of the original custodians of the philosophical legacy. From the minglings of the bloods of the Bacons, the Wottons, the Donnes, the Herberts, and the Mores, the Virginia colony derived many of its prominent citizens. Lord Bacon guided the project and probably outlined the program to be followed after his death.3

Well, I think we can see by 1609 Bacon's Sonnets were riddled with Freemason and Rosicrucian symbols, numbers, words, and ideas.

A question I have is where do the two Societies separate? Or were they even one and the same? I see shared numbers and symbols all over the place.

JAMESTOWN? Cipher number signature?

Obviously with King James I as still the new King of England after Queen Elizabeth, naming the first settlement in the New World after James makes sense.

Cipher writers before me have mentioned that in Bacon's ciphers the J may be a NULL character. If so, then:

-AMESTOWN adds up to 103 Simple cipher, the same as SHAKESPEARE. It also adds up to 155 Kaye cipher which is the Simple cipher of WILL SHAKESPEARE.

ONE HUNDRED THREE is 157 Simple and 365 Kaye cipher which for me is always important with a Seal number (157 and 287) plus 365 which is a complete cycle, ouroboros. It is a number I know very well, and it pops up where it should. 😉

For me not too many years later is the Baconian, Rosicrucian, and Freemason cipher Seal name for one of my favorite places in the world in Williamsburg, VA:

WILLIAM AND MARY COLLEGE is 201 Simple cipher which is one of the most important cipher numbers available for any of us to leave a perfect Secret Seal signature.

TWO HUNDRED ONE is 157 Simple cipher and 287 Kaye cipher the exact same as FRA ROSI CROSSE.

For me who happened to spend some years living around Colonial Virginia when I was kid shaping my mind, the history and experience visiting places was always so incredible to me. Later when I learned about Bacon and his role it became even more intriguing. Of course being in England where you can just go visit where Bacon lived must be amazing, but over here in the New Atlantis we still have some cool places. And they were built from the first brick to be and represent Bacon's dream while Bacon was very alive and being Shakespeare as well.

🙂

                                                                 FRANCIS BACON FOUNDING FATHER OF VIRGINIA & THE NEW WORLD.

In search of his fortune Strachey left London and set sail for the New World on the Sea Adventure. While still in Virginia, or shortly after returning to England he began to write The Historie of Travaile into Virginia Brittania which he probably completed around the end of 1612.1 Though the work was not published at the time it carries on its title-page the words ‘This shalbe written for the generation to come: and the people which shalbe created shall praise the Lord.’2 It was first published in 1849 by R. H. Major who in noting the prophetic quotation said it seemed to indicate an anticipation on Strachey's part that his manuscript would one day be printed.3 Three manuscripts of the work survive. The first dedicated to Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland, a second presented to William Aspley, Purveyor of his Majesty’s Navy Royal, and as indicated by the address, a third and revised manuscript presented to Bacon in 1618 ‘To the Right Honourable SIR FRANCIS BACON, Knight, Baron of Verulam, Lord High Chancellor of England, and of His Majesties most honorable Privy Counsell’ accompanied by the following dedicatory letter:

 Most worthely honord Lord 

      Your Lordship ever approving yourself a most noble fautor of the Virginian Plantation, being from the beginning (with other lords and earles) of the principal counsell applyed to propogate and quide yt: and my poore self (bound to your observaunce, by being one of the Graies-Inne Societie) having bene there three yeares thither, imploied in place of secretarie so long there present; and setting downe with all my welmeaning abilities a true narration or historie of the countrie: to whome shoulde I submitt so aptly, and with so much dutye, the most humble present thereof, as to your most worthie and best-judging Lordship? who in all vertuous and religious endeavours have ever bene, as a supreame encourager, so an inimitable patterne and perfecter: nor shall my plaine and rude composition any thought discourage my attempt, since howsoever I should feare to appeare therein before so matchles a maister in that facultie (if any opinionate worth of mine owne worke presented me) yet as the great Composer of all things made all good with his owne goodnes, and in our only will to his imitation takes us into his act, so be his goodnes your good Lordships in this acceptation: for which with all my poore service I shall abide ever 

                                                                                  Your best Lordship's most humbly,

                                                                                        WILLIAM STRACHEY. 4

FRANCIS BACON ‘MY ENDS ARE ONLY, TO MAKE THE WORLD MY HEIR’: HIS SECRET PLAN FOR THE FUTURE DIRECTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.

 

In New Atlantis his blueprint for America Bacon reveals a vision of a society free from suspicion and ignorance. It foretold of a society built on brotherly love and the advancement of learning in all arts and sciences. Its realization required virtuous men to selflessly labour quietly for the everlasting benefit of humanity and the future ages. In a speech touching the recovery of drowned mineral works, prepared for Parliament by the Viscount of St. Albans, the then Lord Chancellor of England attested to the practical application of his vision unfolded in the New Atlantis:

For, by this unchangeable way (my Lords) have I proposed to erect the Academical Fabric of this Islands Salomon's House, modelled in my New Atlantis. And I can hope (my Lords) that my Midnight Studies to make our Countries flourish and outvy European Neighbours in mysterious and beneficent Arts, have not so ingratefully affected the whole Intellects, that you will delay or resist his Majestys desires, and my humble Petition in this Benevolent, yea, Magnificent Affair; Since your Honourable Posterities may be inriched thereby, and my Ends are only, to make the World my Heir, and the learned Fathers of my Salomon’s House, the successive and sworn Trustees in the dispensation of this great Service, for Gods Glory, my Princes Magnificence, this Parliaments Honour, our Countries general Good, and the propagation of my own Memory.1

 These enigmatical prophetical words warrant careful attention. For ‘Midnight studies’ we should read-work carried out in secret. For the ‘learned Fathers of my Salomon’s House', his Rosicrucian-Freemasonry Brotherhood, and the 'sworn trustees' its secret elite members.2 But the most remarkable part of the passage has, as far as I am aware, hitherto passed unnoticed and uncommented upon. When referring to his benevolent and magnificent plans for the future direction of humanity Bacon states that his ‘Ends are only, to make the world my Heir’. Ordinarily, a statement of such incomparable magnitude as to be unbelievable, unachievable even, but through his Rosicrucian- Freemasonry Brotherhood, it was a desire he would secretly achieve.

HIS UTOPIAN FABLE NEW ATLANTIS (LAND OF THE ROSICRUCIANS) THE BLUEPRINT FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

In his introduction to New Atlantis Dr. Rawley tells how Bacon had devised the fable in order to exhibit a model or description of a college, which Bacon had called Soloman's House, for the interpreting of nature and the producing of great and marvellous works for the benefit of man. Bacon realized these glorious ends could not be achieved by the single efforts of one man which 'suggested the constitution and regulations of a society formed to overcome them'.1 The description of Soloman's House 'is the description of the vision in which he lived' a 'world as it might be made if we did our duty by it; of a state of things which he believed would one day be actually seen upon this earth. . .and the coming of which he believed that his own labours were sensibly hastening.’2 The secret order alluded to in New Atlantis (Land of the Rosicrucians) were governed by Bacon’s Brothers of the Rosy Cross. The carefully devised rituals of the Order were secretly transplanted to America, a nation from its divine inception developed and planned along Rosicrucian-Freemasonic lines.
