RoyalCraftiness Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 (edited) From Webster's: cipher: verb, to use figures in a mathematical process ; origin of use ca. 1530 Generally speaking, a cipher is said to require a key. Some sort of basic scheme or algorithm is to lead you to a meaning. The Shakespeare plaque is an example of a figure with text long assumed to be "coded" somehow. It would seem to say so in its message to the passerby which urges him to stay and read a while to see what is written which serves the witt of Shakespeare. I must confess to the reality that all that I show here comes out of one single person's observation about there being four unique instances of the word ARC in the plaque's text which are in immediate proximity. I do not know what prompted this individual to make this observation, but it is likely it was an attempt to locate instances of RC. I made an inquiry with the person who had made the observation, but he never saw fit to reply. Anyway, great observation nonetheless. For me, the suggestion sounded very scrumptious, mainly because of the idea that four arcs can be used to suggest a circle. The study of the placement of the arcs entailed an examination of the relationship of the letters. Three of them are near and one is further to the right in the image. The strongest suggestion of a relationship was with the As whose apexes could be joined in such a way that opposing pairs of ARCs intersected at a point where a circle center could be placed to capture the Apexes of one pair of them. This can be seen here: The four Arcs define a circle which is to the far left. In its center is Thou, and that is very similar to the Ye that is found in the Sylva Sylvarum composition using circles. The horizontal through this center point was drawn in order to see what the inclination of the long line through the other pair of Arcs was. That turns out to be 30 degrees. That's a wonderful little result because we can use a well known basic Euclidian demonstration of how to construct a 30 degree angle from the simplest building up from Euclid's first proposition in "Elements". It involves the use of three circles. One additional circle is added to the two which produces a Vesica which yields the equilateral triangle construction method. That's what that looks like: I've presented this before when I showed how to construct a 5x8 cross inclined by 30 degrees to match the one that is present in the Sonnets title page. We don't need to consider the dotted circle here. The line F-M is the line which we have from the center of our circle to the Apex of the A to the right. So, it becomes a matter of applying this to the construction method using circles. That is what is seen in the image I present. I added and additional circle to elegantly produce a symmetry. This application of 4 seems to be the general theme of the exercises. I have also shown the geometric center of the rectangular plaque by drawing the two diagonals. That too goes to the the Apex of an A. A quick examination for the plaque text shows that we are capturing many such instances of this coincidence. There's even that small A at the lower right corner in the date. This suggests we are onto a way the image was laid out. Tha placement of the As is guiding the composition of the layout. The vertical through the center Vesica goes through two Ss and two A apexes. In the center of it is a top triangle whose geometric center is the letter G. That's Masonic-like in its placement. The A within the lower Vesica is one I previously mentioned was suggestive of the word AKSEPTION which one can produce with the letters there in close proximity. This I thought was possibly related to the early non-opertive London based fraternity that existed in the early 1600s which went by the name of: the ACCEPTION. Acception will later appear as a qualifier for all of the non-operative Freemasons who will call themselves ACCEPTED. There is no etymology for the word. It is the first instance of it. Someone created the word. It is most likely related to the English translation for the word Kabbalah which had the given meaning of RECEPTION. To receive and and to accept are hinting at the same reality. Outside of the construction, to the right, we see the TT and TTTT suggestions. There is also EE, which I must confess I like to think are calling out Euclid's Elements where you will find this ciphering Key. You may be asking yourself what all this is revealing? Well, this is very much an open question. The angle of 30 degrees sticks out like a sore thumb here as the main thing which is extant to the initial circle suggestion. Why call out a circle and an angle of 30 degrees from it's center? The answer is one for the Ages my friends, and it has again much to do with the stars, the apparition of new ones and our place in the Universe relating to them. As you have by now likely realized form reading my posts, early astronomers like Kepler and others noticed that the Novas formed an alignment in the heavens when their positions were considered. It wasn't known at the time exactly why that sort of thing was statistically favored, but today we do know why. Kepler's alignment approximated by the heading of the body of the swan and that of the stem of the Nothern cross point the way to the alignment of the milky way, or what should properly be called the galactic plane. We are on that plane and it is looking back through it that we see a higher density of stars. It is the linear area of the sky which is most likely to give us Nova and Supernova events which are visible to us. Why then give us 30 degrees? The very simple answer is as easy as basic arithmetic. The galactic plane is inclined 60 degrees from the ecliptic plane (the plane of our solar system). If the vertical line is the galactic plane the ecliptic plane will be 60 degrees from it, 30 degrees inclined from horizontal. Can we actually view this? Sure can. There's a bit of a parallax issue here with viewing these angles on the flat, but we ought to trust that the angle is in fact 60 degrees. In the main Vesica there is also Home, and that is a very poignant reminder that we can always trace back our positions in the grand scheme of things to places we call home. And home can be viewed from many perspectives. It can be the womb from which we come from or it can be the womb from where the Novas come from (what is called the galactic nurseries). Where you are heading has a lot to do with where you think you came from. This sort of consideration is at the core of the TT and TTTT mystery which is a mystery around birth and rebirth, or the completion of a 2:1 process which sees us projecting from this reality into a higher one. That is the mystery we are dealing with in Bacon's work. He is making a monumental effort to reposition our thinking about the stars and to redefine the idea of God in a more natural way. By all means go ahead and explore all the rest that might be suggested in the plaque. For some people this mystery is not as important as others they cherish, but I submit that there has never been a greater mystery known to man. It goes to the very core of the Proto Indo European group's ideas about the sky father and his twin sons. Those we know in the Baconian mystery as Jehova, Jesus and James. They are the three I s (111 in number) that are seen in the associated tomb marker going down the middle of it, and it's there also in Sylva Sylvarum. The milky way was known as the eternal golden band. This leads me to end with a recommendation for you to the excellent work of Douglas Hofstadter, "Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Band". In it he also treats Lewis Carroll, to my great delight. You will come out of it wiser for the all the ties in the symbolism between math and reality.
