Luis Quirino Posted May 16 Share Posted May 16 (edited) Hello everyone, I'm Luís Gonçalves, hailing from Portugal, and I'm the person responsible for the blog "Gematria Research" [https://gematriaresearch.blogspot.com], in which I've been writing mostly about the History of Ciphers used in Gematria. As I tend to use Gematria either (1) creatively, crafting hidden references in my published texts, or (2) searching for any type of works where it is possible to find things that were previously encoded with Gematria, the nickname I've chosen for this forum also has many different layers of meanings: — "Luis" is my real name; it comes from the Germanic hlodwig, meaning "famous warrior"; — "Quirino" would be the Portuguese name of the Roman deity called Quirinus, whose name is believed to come from the Sabine word curis meaning "spear", according to Ovid — so hiding a reference to Shake-speare, the Spear-Shaker, as well. Last but not the least, using the Elizabethan Standard/"Extended" cipher (attributing values to the letters in "decimal scales": first the units 1-9, then the tens 10-90, and finally the hundreds 100-600), the nickname "Luis Quirino" adds to 777, the value of "Geometry" in the same cipher — which shares the same initial letter as my last name, "Gonçalves". By a curious coincidence, Geometria ("Geometry" in Latin) adds to 287: a Baconian/Rosicrucian Seal number. I'm pretty sure I'll have many enriching conversations in this lovely forum, and to share some of my findings and researches as well! It's quite curious, though, because I've been an avid reader of many pages in this website, but I only knew yesterday that there was a forum. 👀 So... here I am!
