Light-of-Truth Posted February 23, 2022 Share Posted February 23, 2022 (edited) Thanks to Allisnum3er and his "Last Portrait" post, I went to bed last night thinking about the "Sweet swan of Avon." All night in various states of wake and dream, the name Francis Bacon kept coming up with the Sweet swan in my mind. I've never personally looked closely at the Ben Jonson poem to see what is to be seen, strangely enough. It is obviously a very important piece of the puzzle. I know some work has been done before and I have seen references to a few clues, so likely what I found this morning is old news. But thought I'd share real quick a few little things that stand out to me on a first look. First three lines: To draw no envy (Shakespeare) on thy name, Am I thus ample to thy Booke, and Fame; While I confesse thy writings to be such, Of course we see "name" the F B A con, F Bacon. Also there is a W T I with the T being the decorative woodcut. So possible hint at William Tudor I and the woodcut as the T for Tudor is highly appropriate. There are 100 characters in those three lines. 100 is Simple cipher for Francis Bacon and the Kaye cipher of Tudor. Ok, now Line 33 of this poem: For names; but call forth thund'ring Aeschilus, We see "names", then the first five letters of the first two words, first letters of the 3rd and 4th words provide "Fr Bacon". The line contains all of the letters for "Francis Bacon" and "Tudor" if you care to look, to emphasize the plural with "names": For names; but call forth thund'ring Aeschilus, TUDOR is 74 Simple cipher. Let's go to Line 74: How about that, Line 74 mentions "Eliza" who is a Tudor. Then these two lines: But stay, I see thee in the Hemisphere Advanc'd, and made a Constellation there ! Yet another Bacon. Curious the "Hemisphere" is not italicized. Hemisphere is 102 Simple cipher. I've mentioned before how ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye ciphers and appears to help Seal the Sonnets Pyramid. I have also suggested the two Seal numbers 157 and 287 both being "A"s may represent the Light and Dark A. What is a Hemisphere? It is half the globe, with one half in the Dark and the other in the Light. Those two lines have 67 characters, the Simple cipher of Francis. Ben goes onto call Shakespeare the "Starre of POETS" which has the Reverse cipher of 157. OK, now we all know this is just scraping the surface here. It is my first look, for now. I have an actual work project to get into now, but wanted to get up before I start.
