Intro - Luis "Quirino" (GematriaResearch)


Recommended Posts

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!

Kind regards,
Luís Gonçalves

Welcome! I was lucky early this morning before I knew you signed up here to glance at something Kate shared on Twitter. I enjoyed it and recognized your skills.

Myself, and I have mentioned here before, I also create and craft Gematria into my life. For fun sometimes, and even professionally seeking the best possible results for my efforts. Mostly I pay attention to where we are in cycles using Gematria; years, months, days, even down to hours, minutes, and seconds.

Whatever it is, and how it works, is a mystery. But Dee and Bacon had a decent grasp beyond my mind and left us many many examples and lessons on how to use them.

Welcome! 🙂

Synchronicity comes up around here sometimes. I'd like to share one right now. Your profile pic:

The past 10 days or so have been very intense for me, wildly stressful at times with an all-night Zoom meeting with the key players of an IT team while their website being hacked and working to get it back up. Just crazy, even my posts last night showed I was in a tense state.

Before I went to bed, I sat outside for a few minutes. An owl flew down onto one of our solar flickering yard lanterns, staring at me. It's big ol' eyes staring at me! And the owl was so small, a juvenile Florida screech owl I presume. Maybe the size of a half-used roll of toilet paper. It made me laugh out loud. Then I started saying quietly, as owls have great ears, "Hellooooo owl." It stared at me and I laughed. Then a second one came down and perched a few feet from it also staring at me. I kept saying, "Hellooooo owl" while laughing at them. Sooo cute! They knew I was laughing, it is a universal language. And they seemed very happy.

This morning when I woke up I had a Twitter email with about five or six tweets based on my history, etc.

Very cute video! And I never typed a word on my PC about an owl. Alexa may have been listening though, always on. And I definitely shared my two owl story with Theresa last night when I came back inside still laughing with tears in my eyes.

Then I saw this Tweet from Kate a couple down the wakeup email:

What is really funny to me in when I saw your request it was 10 hours after you signed up. You may have submitted the form exactly when the TWO young owls were having fun with me.

Anyway, an owl synchronicity. 🙂

Very curious synchronicities over there. Almost as if a sign was being given. 😉
That's the profile picture I've been using on Discord for some time, no doubt motivated by my studies on Francis Bacon & Shake-Speare.

Before I started reading about this question of Bacon, Shakespeare and the Rosicrucian ciphers (even in Fama Fraternitatis there's at least one implicit reference to the number 287 !!!), it was the Bavarian Illuminati that I was studying, together with one of their cryptographic substitution ciphers. Curiously enough, the Illuminati used many symbols of Athena/Athene as well (obviously including the owl) — while their numerical cipher seems to be a crossing between the Baconian Simple & Reverse ciphers. That was actually what motivated me the most to start studying Francis Bacon, the Rosicrucians, and Shakespeare. Many symbols overlap across several different societies, doctrines and philosophies — even though the underlying meaning remains practically the same, though possibly applied in different ways.

Thank you for your message! 🤗

Good to have you aboard, Luis. Your blogspot looks most impressive!
