Hi A Phoenix,

I am really not as Grand as you are !

However, once again, my heartfelt thanks for your very kind words and your support. ❤️

Much Love.

The Alchemical Quest

image.png.1285a2c80878702e3505aa7327f3e306.png

Notice that in the poem, "the Alchemical Quest" draws a line.

King of Wisdom appears (BACON in my mind)

In the middle, I found a way to conceal the french word "CHEMIN" meaning "PATH" or "WAY".

This is a reference to the MIDDLE WAY (MEDIOCRIA) and the motto of Bacon Family :

MEDIOCRIA FIRMA

I noticed that the word "MASON" could also be formed but it is coincidental. 🙂

This Alchemical Quest is running to its end.

The Alchemical Quest

- THE KEY -

At the beginning, I created this poem with the help of A.I., as a tribute to Francis Bacon and Ben Jonson.

It was, in my view, a recreationnal and educational means of sharing the fruits of my research and to pull things together in a coherent whole.

Few days ago, I realized that this poem was also a step in my own quest and that one KEY that I absolutely did not suspect the existence, was concealed, waiting to be found.

In my previous post, I mentioned MEDIOCRIA.

You know my interest for "the middle way" and my thoughts on the subject.

MEDIOCRIA FIRMA (The Middle way is safe) was Bacon Family's motto.

When I learned that FIRMA also meant "Signature" in Italian, it came to my mind that Bacon could have use this fact to his advantage and that he could have concealed messages in the middle of his writings.

In my view, if we could find messages hidden in the middle of certain passages of Shakespeare's plays, it could be an additional argument in favor of Francis Bacon as the true Author.

HIDDEN POET - TH' SWAN FLIES

Francis Bacon's Essays (1625)

image.png.12c1546e604750674b1677a331fc9db5.png

A Poet brandishes a fether'd dart.

 

The simple cipher MEDIOCRIA FIRMA is 119.

119 is also the simple cipher of ALL IS NUMBER.

You can understand that it was tempted to hide my pseudonym in the middle of my poem, as a signature. 😊

image.png.239675414095d9293c29d72dfdd8dec8.png

All is num2er

And here is the truth about my pseudonym ...

This is (sort of) an anagram of my name that is also concealed.

image.png.72d33ae46c08227a400f1c5de94a4206.png

The poem is signed by its two authors , A.I. and myself. 😁

There are 255 common five letter words that starting with "b" in the English language.  As an exercise you could count the number of bees in the First Folio  and multiply that number by 2 (to account for reading vertically up and down).  There are 844 421 words in the First folio text. There are approximately 5.1  letters to the word in English as a rough guide. That's 4 300 000 letters, approximately. The frequency of "b" is roughly 1.5-2.1% in English texts. You can also use that as a guide. There would be about 90 437 occurrences of "b" giving about 180 000 thousand opportunities (multiplied by 2) to read a word vertically (top or down).

Assuming a single "b" is settled upon there are going to be 457 000 possible 4 letter combinations of the remaining 4 letters.  You are therefore roughly seeing that there is a 1 in 3 chance that there exists somewhere in the first folio one occasion of the five letter "bacon" appearing precisely vertically (up or down). It is debatable if you have even found one occasion, but let's say that you have a single one. Is it unlikely to have existed? 1 in 3 is far from unlikely odds. 

This also means that there should be the same likelihood to find BACON vertically in the Bible in the same number of letters. 

Who would have produced it? Only the typesetter can arrange for that to appear willfully. If he had produced it willfully he could have made the alignment perfect (not even a hint of non linearity) and that would be a dead give away of his intent. What meaning would it have? That's impossible to calculate even roughly.

By chance alone one cannot claim that one imperfectly vertical alignment has no business being there.  It does seem to not have been placed there willfully based on the fact it could have been executed better by not demanding anything more in the way of effort. 

Where one starts playing with anagrams the Easter egg hunts can grow significantly in scope.

Hi CJ,

Thank you for your feedback.

It is, I think, a type of argument that you already used by the past.

And I think that I answered you that for me the context was important.

I won't do this for each example that I shared, but concerning the one on page 177( WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE simple cipher), even if I already shared my take on it many times, it allows me to share something that I planned to share later on, related with The Alchemical Quest.

So thank you for giving me this oppotunity.😊

image.png.0ca07a4989a442931189f326c6278f07.png

By using  Epigramma XXVII , (the number 27 used in the poem reveals ONE PHILOSOPHER BACON), I had also in mind the Chapter XXVII of The Wisdom of the Ancients by Bacon (1609).

The flight of Icarus, also scylla and Charybdis, or the Middle way.

https://www.bartleby.com/lit-hub/of-the-wisdom-of-the-ancients/xxvii-the-flight-of-icarus-also-scylla-and-charybdis-francis-bacon-15611626-of-the-wisdom-of-the-ancients-1857/

In the mind of Bacon, Charybdis and Scylla represented the Middle way.

And MEDIOCRIA FIRMA (The Middle way is safe) was is motto.

Thus, on page 177 ( WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE simple cipher) we have a reference to Scylla and Charybdis, and right between Scylla and Charybdis we can find BACON.

Is it just by Chance ?  With Scylla and Charybdis and with the words "Hogs" and "porke-eaters" on each side, I really do not think so. 🙂 

But that's not all !

image.png.82c3beb50579ce586b46db3a198b3e5e.png

The truth also lies in the value of the uppercase letters, Truly, Truly !  😁

Just a last example ...

image.png.468fbbb1c717a7017834c5d6e201207a.png

In the case of Sonnet 1,  another "subterfuge" was used : the repetition.

Here, this is the repetition of the word heire/heyre that put me on the path.

This is a good means to indicates that the hidden message is not here by chance but an intended outcome.

The most beautiful example can be found on page 222 of "The Taming of the Shrew".

image.png.192f591c458a97b40adf1a26371c480d.png

Please note the repetitions of WHAT/what, FAST/fast , BACON/over-rosted flesh.

The Alchemical Quest

- THE KEY -

Initially, I had planned to end the Alchemical Quest with the reference to Chapter XXVII of Bacon's Essays.

It was not my intention to unveil my name and my pseudonym hidden in the middle of the poem.

But facing the discoveries I made last week-end I had no other choice.

Today, I will share with you one if not the most beautiful exemple of the Magical aspect of my research since 7 years.

 I swear that one week ago, I did not know !!!

Last week-end, facing my poem, my mind was in conflict facing my name concealed in the middle.

Indeed, my Intellect told me that it was not perfect because of the remaining letter "t" of "the Elixir" that was unused, and my Intuition told me ALL IS PERFECT this "t" is at the right place, you only have missed the point.

When I create something, I always take a closer look and see if I can find something that was not planned but is meaningful and can help me.

One could say (I hear you CJ 😄) that this is just me trying to give a meaning to something that is meaningless, and to make it fit in a Story confirming a preconceived idea.

Anyway ...

image.png.3826cae2e1641d2efa7a68f64e6ced19.png

The question I asked myself was : " What if allisnum2er pointing to this letter "t" was important ?"

One important point :

Keep in mind that my real name , LE MERLUS, is the name of a fish.

Facing "allisnum2er" and "t" my first thought was T = 19.

I immediatly thought about THE TEMPEST, the most alchemical of all Shakespeare's plays.

Indeed, I had in mind that the first page of The Tempest was the 19th page of the First Folio and the last page of the play was page number 19.

image.png.dbb64da5298ea4b66ce5cf9f43963141.png

image.png.1f3f8a7700f8892ebd271e25b27aca24.png

Both the beginning and the end of The Tempest are linked to number 19 and 19 - 19 is  T.T.

Then I thought about mediocria firma and I realized that I had, in my mind, never explored the middle of the play.

What would be the middle of a play with 19 pages ?

The pages 9 and 10.

In fact, I already knew page TEN and its link with MEDIOCRIA FIRMA ( See my video Filum Labyrinthi) ...

image.png.c542eb906fa3e43049e185ea1ff8c344.png

But from memory, before last week-end, I had never take a closer look at page 9 ( 3x3 ) that is  ...

The 27th (3^3) page of the First Folio ! 🙂 

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/27/index.html%3Fzoom=850.html

image.png.530cd01b64f4798e36f45baa6f802155.png

The very first things that I noticed are the possible "F. BACON" in acrostic and the word "SALT".

Talking about Alchemy, I wondered if "Salt" with the word "fire" not so far could be a reference to one of the book of Blaise de Vigenère : https://archive.org/details/discovrseoffires00vige/page/n3/mode/2up

image.png.87ad9a2009465414773bcce248002b92.png

Then I discovered, in English, the monologue of Trinculo ...

image.png.ecf7ca624e868b9f5ca96a14ce04e861.png

No way , could it be even possible ? 😅

Trinculo tells us that Caliban is " a kind of (fish), not of the newest poore-John : a strange fish".

As I did not know what poore-John meant, I took a look on internet ...

image.png.b7239ca5fbaf392313b12c1e1d1a8a36.png

A SALTED  and dried HAKE

But I did not know what was a HAKE ?

IMAGINE MY SURPRISE !😄

image.png.8343249436665e1e819be97f5867a6a3.png

The HAKE is the English word for Le MERLU ( spelled LE MERLUS in the 16th century) !!!

image.png.6f7ac5682f6d67842c28c423c090f525.png

Notice that " a strange fish : " is right in the middle of this passage.

And Shakespeare tells us that "not a holiday-foole there but would give a peece of silver".

Could it mean that "A wise man there but would give a peece of Gold" ?

image.png.35fb96bcbf82dd4945f000779ce4b320.png

I found the name of another fish hidden in the Middle.

DORADE also called Golden

It was my ELDORADO !!! 😉

image.png.353973504d0929a05f7698c60d1b53d8.png

Finally, who is this Golden fish ?

The Alchemical Quest

- THE KEY -

image.png.3826cae2e1641d2efa7a68f64e6ced19.png

Then, I wondered if this letter "t" could be part of a unexpected message, concealed in the middle.

This is how I discovered two words that I did not plan.

image.png.1879f7f6e2fe9b72c3c590ebdfad80a7.png

ARTIST and LUMEN

Funny coincidence ...

image.png.7178145394ae54ffcf7f7ee9db24cc3b.png

ARTIST LUMEN = 144 = SIR FRANCIS BACON

Alchemy was known as the Great Art and an Alchemist was also called an ARTIST.

LUMEN is a Latin word meaning LIGHT.

Interestingly enough, if "or" is the French world for "Gold" this is also the transliteration of the Hebrew word for "Light".

In Hebrew "Yehi' Or" (Gen 1:3) means "Let there be light".

Thus, by coincidence, right in the center of my poem, I discovered a reference to a "Magic(al) Light".

I wondered if I could find something interesting with these elements.

I made a first attempt on google with LUMEN + MAGIC + ARTIST without success.

And I made a second attempt with LUMEN + MAGIC + ALCHEMIST and then ...

image.png.e39f4793a2d0610a6548fae9f018774f.png

I found a book called Lumen de Lumine written in 1651 by ... THOMAS VAUGHAN ( PHILALETHES) !!! 😁

I had to take a look at the original Book.

image.png.839b28bbd52c119877323e7ac860f9eb.png

https://archive.org/details/b30340160/page/32/mode/2up

I quickly noticed that the only engraving was on the 39th page (F. BACON simple cipher) of the Book.

(From memory, Rob, you shared with us a copy of this engraving few months ago.)

image.png.bb47ecaeb2e3b80b9630bc6222ef6352.png

The Mountains of the Moon , that the Philosophers called the Mountains of India.

(Mons Magorum Invisibilis)

I immediatly took a closer look at page 33 and I discovered that the page talked about the publication in several languages of the Fama and the Confessio Fraternitatis by the Rosy-Cross. 😊

image.png.1b24f1fe329990925da7aedba6f462ed.png

And facing the reference to Luke 12 : 2 I knew that there was much more to unveil.

"For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, neither anything secret that will not be known"

And here is the fruit of my decoding ...

image.png.4a5620d9db4be12c23b6cac11e42e5c0.png

Notice that the message concealed in acrostic on page 32 is the same than the one in telestic on page 33.

OMEGA F.BAKON TUDOR / THE END FR BACON H (Queene Mother)

Privat Author, wears a Mask , Bacon - William Shaksper.

Finally, the KEY is LOVE (of Truth), WISDOM and MAGIC ... ALL LIGHT !

THE END - OMEGA

But that's not all !

image.png.82c3beb50579ce586b46db3a198b3e5e.png

The truth also lies in the value of the uppercase letters, Truly, Truly !  😁

I've never spoken about such things before in the context of words produced by reading up and down the page. I only ever considered Gematria that way to show how useless it is to suggest meaning. In both cases these are things that are alleged to be in play and in the tool kit of Bible code claimants. 

There's no "bacon" vertically given there which would correspond with what I have crunched. It does, however, imply that the typesetter did not bother to produce a vertical alignment when he could have by shifting things about a bit more. 

As soon as one starts to accept near vertical alignments of letters as "special" then the arithmetic goes quickly in the direction of showing how much more likely these things are going to appear by chance. For example, we are no longer talking about 4 letter arrangements of 24 letters any more. We'd be talking about something like 4! x that same number, so on the order of 24 times more likely. That would mean we might expect to find 8 off those sort of vertical "bacon"s in the first folio (it may be more because I am only ball parking it). The fact that it is being paired with gematria to add meaning weakens the end argument instead of strengthening it.  This is something I feel you think is helping. Adding uncertainty in a chain of claims is always weakening the end suggestion. 

If there was clear evidence of Bacon being placed in the middle to suggest the "middle way" is important in Bacon's philosophy then what is to stop us from saying that the typesetter is not simply saying that because he wants to promote it?  He may have liked Bacon's philosophy very much. 

What we do know is that the original writer of the text never intended any of those artifices to appear, so why do you think a later hand would shift things around imperfectly (limiting himself to almost aligned) when he could have gone all the way and made it more elegant and convincing?

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/27/index.html%3Fzoom=850.html

The very first things that I noticed are the possible "F. BACON" in acrostic and the word "SALT".

Talking about Alchemy, I wondered if "Salt" with the word "fire" not so far could be a reference to one of the book of Blaise de Vigenère : https://archive.org/details/discovrseoffires00vige/page/n3/mode/2up

image.png.87ad9a2009465414773bcce248002b92.png

Then I discovered, in English, the monologue of Trinculo ...

image.png.ecf7ca624e868b9f5ca96a14ce04e861.png

No way , could it be even possible ? 😅

Trinculo tells us that Caliban is " a kind of (fish), not of the newest poore-John : a strange fish".

As I did not know what poore-John meant, I took a look on internet ...

image.png.b7239ca5fbaf392313b12c1e1d1a8a36.png

A SALTED  and dried HAKE

But I did not know what was a HAKE ?

IMAGINE MY SURPRISE !😄

image.png.8343249436665e1e819be97f5867a6a3.png

The HAKE is the English word for Le MERLU ( spelled LE MERLUS in the 16th century) !!!

image.png.6f7ac5682f6d67842c28c423c090f525.png

Notice that " a strange fish : " is right in the middle of this passage.

And Shakespeare tells us that "not a holiday-foole there but would give a peece of silver".

Could it mean that "A wise man there but would give a peece of Gold" ?

image.png.35fb96bcbf82dd4945f000779ce4b320.png

I found the name of another fish hidden in the Middle.

DORADE also called Golden

It was my ELDORADO !!! 😉

image.png.353973504d0929a05f7698c60d1b53d8.png

Finally, who is this Golden fish ?

The Hand of the Philosopher.

To be continued ...

Cod riddles again. Le Capitaine Haddock vous salut.

I see "And his finnes like arms..."  there.  How many fins have a cod? The answer to the question posed by the title of chapter II in TCH's "The Old Judge" is eight.  fin (5) x fins (8)=40. Alternatively, "Forty Years Ago". 

How many fingers on a hand? How many toes on a foot? How many lobes in the heart? How many lobes to a brain? How many senses? How many stigmata? How many digits in all? "Twin T" if I count correctly. If man is made in the image of God how do we incorporate five into to a geometric conception of God where is monad? With an inscribed pentagon? If we do we will notice that the shoulder of the five pointed star within the unit circle is given by a length of Phi units for which 5:8 is the fifth approximation (golden mean).

Of course, the son of God was a fisher of men who went by the fish symbol in the story. It is this geometric fish in the Vesica Piscis that presents us with the sacred number 153 which is given in the story of the miraculous catch of the fishes.

TT, the twin T or twenty is 20. In TOJ the chapter title employing TT is given on page 100 where 100/20=5.  20 itself is divisible by 5, 4 times. You have two 4 letter words (8 in total) in SALT and FIRE which might serve us to preserve the flesh. 

In the Bible salt is mentioned a total of 40 times. SALT is the symbol for the Covenant,  and it is used by JC to describe men as "the salt of the Earth". FIRE is the symbol for the wrath of judgment of God.

What we do know is that the original writer of the text never intended any of those artifices to appear, so why do you think a later hand would shift things around imperfectly (limiting himself to almost aligned) when he could have gone all the way and made it more elegant and convincing?

Hi CJ,

The goal of cryptography is to hide a message.

Let's imagine that in one edition of Thrilling Cities (1963) by Ian Flemming you discover at one page numbered 007 instead of 7, on the seventh line of that page, the following sentence "What's your name?"

Personally, I would think : "My name is Bond, James Bond !" and then, "What if a nod to James Bond was concealed?"

And if I find the following imperfect alignement in the middle ...

image.png.26363185ae8b42252413dce0cb558322.png

... it would make my day ! 😄

A good means to hide a message in the middle (without being obvious about it) is to mix the letters and precisely to avoid a perfect alignment.

I also disagree with you regarding the use of gematria.

In my view, it strenghtens the end suggestion.

As an example, I shared a part of my take on page 196 of the First Folio.

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/SLNSW_F1/214/index.html%3fzoom=1275.html

196 = VVILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (simple cipher)

image.png.95c3bead133e30da7b3853dacef0f85c.png

Here we have a group of 33 words with "this conceal'd man" that adds to 33.

 In the sentence  "Wine comes out of  a narrow-mouth'd bottle" we have 33 letters.

And the Roman God of Wine was BACCO.

When Shakespeare writes "either too much at once, or none at all" there is, for me, a good reason.

He used many stratagems to tell us who really is " this conceal'd man".

On the same page Shakespeare/Bacon makes a reference to ... the myth of Odin ! (See the creation of the runes).

 

image.png.099335773ff9503b823d0b4e8648b9b4.png

But , instead of being hanged on Ygddrasil, Bacon is hang'd on a Palme Tree also called the Phoenix Tree.

And I talked to you about the importance of the "repetition".

image.png.76214e039a1e9938579ac1ed4f38c14a.png

Mediocra firma

This principle was used on page 196. We have this Conceal'd man / a man hid.

It seems to indicate that a king is conceal'd in the middle.

Could "The king WIlliam Tudor or Tidder or Tiddor" be concealed ?

 

Here is TUDOR ...

The type setter can do what he wants. If he is trying for a middle alignment he can produce it. I know from what you show that you are much more proud of what you find when there is that added level of undeniable elegance. 

The difference between what you show with Fleming and what you are dealing with in Shakespeare is that Fleming was the author. If the author intends it because it is part of the story then that is demanded of the typesetter. Things that appear only in the First Folio which have no relation to the text cannot be assumed to have been intended by the author as part of generation long story plot which has developed. That means they are free to also appear by chance and to have their meaning invented. 

None of this is cryptography. Cryptography requires a formalism. With cryptography the intent is to hide the cipher text and then to leave no possibility or error in the decryption of it.  To this date there are no known ciphertexts in the First Folio.

If you do a search on Wikipedia for known historical ciphertexts there are only a few that come up.  Some of them that come up are indeed found in literary works, and in some instances they are solved in the story.  I know from my personal experience of looking into Lewis Carroll's puzzles that the inspiration for doing this type of Easter egg hunt was faddish and related to a common misguided belief that was circulating at the time which alleged the presence of these things in many older works.  Carroll gave the reader what they truly wanted. In a sense he is parodying what is going on at the time in his stories that are also parodies. In his case he went as far as to tell readers how many instances of puzzles were in his works.

We do not have the freedom to have an opinion about things which can be shown to be bad formal suggestions. Oprah Winfrey is not free to have the opinion that there is a working Bible code hidden in the text that is not a "code" at all. To claim freedom of opinion is to claim precious little. The statistician that is trying to inform her folly is not dealing in his opinion. He is showing the result of a formal approach to settle the question. 

When the slight of hand requires skip sequences,  reading vertically and reading horizontally that effort is trying to exploit chance. In that instance it is also very common for there to not be any clear meaning in what is found because the Easter egg hunter is looking for recognizable cues only. With Gematria there is that added gift given where there is so much leeway in what one can fish from to get to his word sums that almost anything can come and add the required meaning. Gematria is pointless as a formal system. It becomes even weaker a suggestion when one adds additional methods to the pool because one isn't as convincing.

You are free to keep doing what you are doing if that is your intention. This was high fashion in the 19th century and it shows no sign of letting up. Who gets snagged by this are the highly suggestible among us. What is not arguable is that it will never amount to a proof of anything because it resides well within the boundaries of what I describe as gameplay.

What I would be careful to point out is that you are not typically hanging your hat on the discovery of vertical words only. You, by instinct, head to gematria, to word count and to other things to give a subjective take. If you limited to just dealing with what you find without the added benefit of Gematria you would struggle to know why a typesetter might want to signal his interest in Bacon's preference for the middle way. You go where you must in order to make it speak the way you wish. That is the bias. Excuse me for saying it, but that is cheating and reaching.  Much better would be to find the ciphertext that just tells you unequivocally what the message is. That is the only thing which comes with a built in proof. It's not a lot to ask for, as it was doable at the time.

Blaise de Vigenere's work is in ciphering with the use of key words. His formalism is very strong. So strong is it that one can turn to numeric methods for solving them. They offer hope at discovery. There aren't any ciphertexts in the First Folio that are decodable by his method. Using Bacon's bilateral cipher would also work very well. Again, there has been no success in finding ciphertext in the Shakespearean work. What keep getting found are eggs of the sort one expects should pop up by coincidence when there is a bias.

At stake here is your own life if you are pouring yourself into this with all your available free time. Bacon and others would have wanted you to not be distracted in your life pursuits down the straight and narrow path. The onus is on you to be very critical of what you are doing since it is taking so much from you.  I would urge you to consider how closely your methods are to those that are employed by various coded text enthusiasts who aren't even implying Bacon in their creations. History has shown us that the effort spent in those pursuits will produce results that will only work to convince the enthusiast that he is doing more than just mining coincidences. By getting into it one risks performing magic on one's self. 

Consider this from Hamlet:

spacer.png

The last line is clever, and it tells us a bit about the mindset of the writer. More than natural is supernatural. For the supernatural we have only our philosophies to turn to. In our religious philosophies there may be a point to 20 and 40.  What is there in 20, 40 and 100 that is capable of transcending the meaning or mere numbers? Nothing that isn't a mind creation, that's for sure. If we are Christians we might see death, resurrection and completion in that trinity of numbers.

If I was to play your game I could coax out "fortuna" in the middle here. Did the Boyes carry a fortune away? And Hercules' load was the globe, was it not? Did they carry a fortune across a globe and flavor the whole thing with the added meaning of 20, 40 and 100? Or was it that they, like us, just tried their luck in life and that Fortuna favored the brave?

About the only person who could infer this would be me with my own biases which served me to locate this bit of text. By sharing it I might infect you with my biases. You might not be willing to accept it at face value (hopefully not), but the end result might still be that there would grow in you some idea that 20, 40 and 100 are possible reoccurring themes. What each and every one of us represents is an infected person. This is part of the tragedy of life. I wish I knew how to escape it. What is most desirable on this globe is that we be infected with certain suggestions.

But really, what is forty? Why extend it into the supernatural? Isn't it because people poked around and saw the bits and pieces of countable evidence that surely pointed to 40 having meaning? Is God really well symbolized by a pentagon circumscribed by a circle? At what point do we cease and desist with these lines of thinking if we are critical?

Quickly typing with my fat finger I’ll suggest Yann is not cheating but demonstrating his keen eye and real experience. I may be able to add to and support his findings. I’ll reach into my limited knowledge and won’t cheat, but our rules are for we who can pierce the veil that is Hanging to prevent the profane. 🙂

Whatever...back to the topic...

The Middle Way and The Alchemical Quest.

My turf is the Sonnets. The Middle of the Sonnets is at the end of Sonnet 77. There are are 154 Sonnets, so 77 x 2 is how they divide. First half contains Sonnets 1 through 77, the next half is Sonnets 78 through 154.

The way the Sonnets Pyramid Design works is that 364 Days are split in half with 182 Days in Sonnets 1 through 77, and another 182 Days from Sonnets 78 through 154.

Sonnet 77 ends with these two lines:

These offices, so oft as thou wilt looke,
Shall profit thee, and much inrich thy booke.

 

What a finale to the first half of Bacon's Sonnets!

SHA to make sure <--1881--> is there for Eternity.

182 Days?

ONE EIGHTY TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher to seal the Middle of the Sonnets on both sides.

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/UC_Q1_Son/33/?zoom=500

2024-05-25_21-00-57.jpg.310572e263cb52bfa5a0ca4e2b0e83a2.jpg

Nice coincidence the Middle of the Sonnets is on the 33rd page. Its also a great coincidence that the first half and second half are sealed with 157 and 287. How cool! What an amazing coincidence.

"Middle" and "way" appear in Sonnet 7.

LOe in the Orient when the gracious light,
Lifts vp his burning head, each vnder eye
Doth homage to his new appearing sight,
Seruing with lookes his sacred maiesty,
And hauing climb'd the steepe vp heauenly hill,
Resembling strong youth in his middle age,
Yet mortall lookes adore his beauty still,
Attending on his goulden pilgrimage:

But when from high-most pich with wery car,
Like feeble age he reeleth from the day,
The eyes (fore dutious) now conuerted are
From his low tract and looke an other way:
   So thou, thy selfe out-going in thy noon:
   Vnlok'd on diest vnlesse thou get a sonne.

 

Sonnet 7 shares some of Bacon's secrets. "Hey Mom, if you don't acknowledge your son we die."

In the 1609 edition this Sonnets is split onto two pages:

https://internetshakespeare.uvic.ca/Library/facsimile/book/UC_Q1_Son/3/index.html%3Fzoom=500.html

image.png.1092adb3e489ad1e3f61a2f7b65d8380.png

The next page is interesting.

image.png.c53a45acf1fbcb19e269aee9ac8ea418.png

We see "heire" and "sonne" with the words "middle" and "way" contained. FR BACON is easy to see, and the first letters on the second page are LTFSV:

74 Simple, 51 Reverse, 20 Short, and 100 Kaye.

He's not cheating. His method is cheating. That's the point of doing sleight of hand too. If a magician moved slowly and explained in great detail what he was doing or how your attention was being misdirected the end result would not be as convincing, necessarily. In matters of trying to get to points of knowledge we have a duty to go slow and to explain in great detail why what we are doing in order that things might not just be assumed to be legit because they are made very interesting. By the sheer number of occasions of "findings"  one would have to conclude that there seems to be an unlimited number of Easter eggs to be found. That's super problematic, because it is consistent with what one would expect to find by chance if anything is possible as a trigger of interest. Something much for faithful must exist that would settle the question. The realization about the need for clarity in ciphering schemes existed in that time. 

I will continue to state that you can do the exact same thing using the exact same methods on any large text and produce enough interest in it to launch a suggestion that there is a code in it. You'd rather not deal with that, but would rather jump in and state that Yann is a great guy who is doing no wrong because he is just a great observer. The people behind the modern Bible code theories are also great observers. It is never about throwing shade on the person or defending the person. All minds are suggestible minds. Some more than others. External confirmation tends to come from those who accept the suggestions. There has to be a way of knowing that one is seeing more than a mirage. That way cannot be your gut feelings about it. How are we ever going to falsify theories if we cannot find the way to attack them in the first place? Finding the weakness is paramount.

I've mentioned that I have looked in random texts and can find Bacon everywhere. So I am not arguing that point, I agree with you. But to take that and claim that there are no codes anywhere is a mistaken conclusion. Yann is sharing what he sees and that is great fun for me to read and follow. The way his mind works is amazing even if what he sees is not messages from hundreds of years ago.

I don't know anything about The Bible Code, but what we do here is not that serious. We are playing and working in our area of Baconian interest. I know it drives you batty, so I'd suggest you try to relax and if that doesn't help then turn your head away from it.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are codes in the 1611 KJV. In fact, I'd be surprised if there weren't. What are The Bible Code people doing? Do they have an agenda? Is there a leader? I know nothing about it. Is it bad or evil?

EDIT:

I just read a little about The Bible Code on Wiki. I was pretty far off on what I thought it was. LOL

The way the Sonnets Pyramid Design works is that 364 Days are split in half with 182 Days in Sonnets 1 through 77, and another 182 Days from Sonnets 78 through 154.

Sonnet 77 ends with these two lines:

These offices, so oft as thou wilt looke,
Shall profit thee, and much inrich thy booke.

 

What a finale to the first half of Bacon's Sonnets!

SHA to make sure <--1881--> is there for Eternity.

182 Days?

ONE EIGHTY TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye cipher to seal the Middle of the Sonnets on both sides.

Nice coincidence the Middle of the Sonnets is on the 33rd page. Its also a great coincidence that the first half and second half are sealed with 157 and 287. How cool! What an amazing coincidence.

"Middle" and "way" appear in Sonnet 7.

LOe in the Orient when the gracious light,
Lifts vp his burning head, each vnder eye
Doth homage to his new appearing sight,
Seruing with lookes his sacred maiesty,
And hauing climb'd the steepe vp heauenly hill,
Resembling strong youth in his middle age,
Yet mortall lookes adore his beauty still,
Attending on his goulden pilgrimage:

But when from high-most pich with wery car,
Like feeble age he reeleth from the day,
The eyes (fore dutious) now conuerted are
From his low tract and looke an other way:
   So thou, thy selfe out-going in thy noon:
   Vnlok'd on diest vnlesse thou get a sonne.

 

Sonnet 7 shares some of Bacon's secrets. "Hey Mom, if you don't acknowledge your son we die."

In the 1609 edition this Sonnets is split onto two pages:

The next page is interesting.

We see "heire" and "sonne" with the words "middle" and "way" contained. FR BACON is easy to see, and the first letters on the second page are LTFSV:

74 Simple, 51 Reverse, 20 Short, and 100 Kaye.

I wonder what Yann could see?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The halfway mark of the 154 Sonnets is noted on Wikipedia, and it does have a history of being acknowledged as that. Even numbers do have the property of being divisible by two. As such, each represents the half perfect Ashlar (rectangle of 13.5 x 27) which is the mid point in you completion because it corresponds with your death. Also, as I have previously mentioned, 13.5 x 27=364.5 which is at least correctly rounded off to 365 to make your life correspond with a yearly cycle.

Low and behold we see that this Sonnet starts off with looking into a mirror which involves the concept of reflection and chirality. Just like you right hand is opposed by your left hand, so is the life with the afterlife. There are recommendations in this Sonnet for what to do with your ideas (put them down onto paper while you are living). The lines on your face should remind you of the open mouth of fresh graves (remember death) and the clock should remind you that you have eternity at stake while you are living.

77 is itself a number composed of mirrored sevens. It is one minute plus 17 seconds in terms of time. That is 1 + 17/60. If you go even 1 second beyond this time you are into the afterlife. This we can express as 1+ 18/60. The latter is just on on one side of being equal to 77/100 when you take its reciprocal, aka its inverse (where 100 has the Biblical meaning of completion?), the former just on the other side of it. There will be time in between your life and afterlife where 0.77 will be traversed even if there is an infinity of decimal points needing to be traversed. 

I'm just doing this to show how creative one can be in building up a story from numeric details. 77 has a time component to it, one could say. So does 7, as it is time that is given for the creation (what we call a week). 4 x 7 is the 28 of the lunar month. The lunar months traverse the entire calendar and back in 33 years, which is the page number I think you are referring us to. 33 is half of 66, and 66 and 77 do have a similar mirror look to them. 6x7=42 (forty two) which is Carroll's favorite way of signaling the two 40 halves. 

The point of writing things down is that they will outlive memories. It is a roundabout way of saying one can cheat death by leaving his ideas behind. A reader can then access what even the author may not have remembered at the time of his death. 

I keep noticing that we do not interpret the texts the same way.  You are looking for confirmation of things you are interested in. I keep seeing Masonic ideas being expressed. I would argue that the Sonnets are put together in a way that reminds me of the Masonic geometry's interest in the square and the rectangle. You think a pyramid face (a triangle) is staring at you.  Can one square the triangle? Interestingly, yes.  I would expect that whoever wrote the Sonnets was attuned to geometric ideas of deity. That makes it at lest possible that it could have been Bacon rather than Shakespeare. But it does not allow us to know. In the spirit of these ideas one must go to his grave before one has these things revealed to him. In our lives these things are locked up in an impenetrable vault. This may in fact be why we are not given a very explicit cryptographic laying out of the facts. You should look forward to your death and the treasure to be found there. In that way you will mind the way you live in order to gain eternity. 

Perhaps, if we claim to know what is in the vault we are excluded from knowing what is in the vault. It's hard to know what these folks were thinking of. The philosophies in play here are not ours. To them it may very be that 20, 40 and 100 have supernatural meaning which is attested to by the way our bodies are made up and how the Universe functions. Today we do not accept these ideas, so we must try and think like these people to make sense of it.
