The "I" in Tarot is the Magician.

I'm not fully educated on the history of Tarot, but I know it goes back a ways, to Italy in the 1500's or beyond.

I tried to find an Elizabethan image of the Magician and my Google search was full of John Dee images and links! LOL

The 1st Edition of the Essays were printed in 1587. I don't know that I've ever looked at them!

The 2nd edition came out in 1612 with 38 more essays than the original 10 in 1597. I'm not totally sure I've looked at this one either.

In 1625 the 3rd Edition came out with "Of Truth" as the first essay. This is the one most of us know.

The 1632 version that A. Phoenix posted earlier is different from the 1625 as Allisnum2er pointed out. But the top part is the same.

First thing I want to point is the letter "j" in the first sentence of the first essay.

image.thumb.png.d8e6df39258bc4cf4f017def967caeda.png

As far as I know, doing crazy hours researching this one concept, over two or three years, I believe this to be the first instance of any Bacon publication using a distinct letter "j". This is in his 3rd Edition of his Essays in 1625 while he was alive. I'd be very excited if someone comes up with an earlier version, but I think this is it.

And here the "j" is in the first sentence of the first essay. Is it important?

Yes.

My first post on this forum was about the letter "J". No members, very few people have read it. 🙂

In the essay image I posted above I highlighted a simple Bacon acrostic. One of many on the first page of this essay. May be some better than this one, but they are there.

Why?

If Bacon wrote these Essays, which he did, and his name on them, why cipher his name onto them?

Well...remember that "Of Truth" is 103 Simple cipher; SHAKESPEARE. At the top of the page.

OK, BACON ciphers all over Shakepeare's works. Here we have a Shakespeare cipher over Bacon's works. Interchangeable, yes. But it was 1625, even though everybody who knew Bacon knew the connections, none of them had any idea what the future would bring.

There were no Strats in 1625. That came up decades later. Oxfordians back then? Makes me laugh so hard I pass gas.

Everyone who was anybody in 1625 knew Bacon was Shakespeare.

But the future? Bacon knew he was leaving his legacy hidden, hoping we'd find out someday. But he knew there was risk, and indeed there has been more risk than we'd imagine. Strats, Oxies, Marlovians, so on. We are the few but happy Baconians who consider the "previous" popular Truth in spite of DeVere being the latest popular movement. (Gag.)

Bacon knew his works had some risk of being attributed to another, even the Willy they paid to be a plastic face on an engraving so Bacon's head would not be chopped off. I bet he did not consider Oxfart as one to steal his due. LOL

Friends, read his words:

And count it a Bondage, to fix a Beleefe ; Affecting Free-will in Thinking, as well as in Acting.

Starting on line 7, the capital letters are:

ABBAFTA = 33 in Simple cipher with the 26 letter alphabet codes which includes the "j" in his first sentence.

What is Truth, said jesting Pilate...

Allisnum2er pointed out, "Pilate comes from the word "Pilum" meaning "Spear" 🙂 ".

And count it a Bondage, to fix a Beleefe ; Affecting Free-will in Thinking, as well as in Acting.

I've read this line hundreds of times, listening to what Bacon is saying. He was definitely talking to us, the enlightened, but also the message was for the World in the dark. Bacon's Essays have a Shakespeare signature prominent. He was well aware, he made sure it was there. But, he also knew that Willy the not-so-famous guy in 1625 may take the "stage" soon. Future nations may or may not see what Bacon left, he hoped but no way he knew.

So he left Bacon's signatures for us to see in his own works, even though he already claimed "Shakespeare" wrote these essays in cipher. Of course Bacon wrote them, but he also wrote Shakespeare and left Bacon signatures galore in Shakespeare.

And count it a Bondage, to fix a Beleefe ; Affecting Free-will in Thinking, as well as in Acting.

Study this, hear what he is saying. It's not for me to explain, get to know Bacon and this Essay starts out with messages. All about Truth.

AMEN !!! 🙂 

From Hebrew amen meaning Truth, that is 31  (24 letters-simple cipher) and 33 (26 letters-simple cipher) 😉

THE BACONIAN-ROSICRUCIAN AA HEADPIECE AND ENGRAVING  OF LORD BACON IN THE 1656 EDITION OF THE MIRROUR OF STATE AND ELOQVENCE

Hi A Phoenix,

Thank you again for sharing this with us.

I do not know if someone already noticed it and if it is important, but the  letter "w" of  "worth", "wit", "within" and "dwell" is the same that the one used in the passage engraved on the scroll of Shakespeare's Monument.

Subtle differences. For one the Light and Dark are reversed. In fact, they are totally reversed.

In the Dedication in the 1st Edition, "count" is beneath the woodcut R. In the 1592 edition is it in the line above with the full word, "account".

Makes me want to do some counting...

But going to bed now. 🙂

Anti-Machiavel Hardcover – October 17, 2018

by Innocent Gentillet (Author), Ryan Murtha (Editor), Simon Patericke (Translator)

https://www.amazon.com/Anti-Machiavel-Innocent-Gentillet/dp/1532659733

The English translation of the work by Simon Patericke published in 1602 is here updated with modern spelling and punctuation by Ryan Murtha. Murtha shows in a lengthy introduction and several appendices that Gentillet's work was certainly read in early seventeenth-century England and that some of his ideas and prose can be found in the writings of figures such as William Shakespeare and Francis Bacon."" --Mack Holt, Professor of History, George Mason University ""The evidence for Francis Bacon's involvement in the creation, editing, and publication of the Shakespeare works becomes stronger every year and this book will add to it."" --Sir Mark Rylance, former artistic director, Shakespeare's Globe, London Ryan Murtha is an independent researcher and writer.

'In 1591 John Wolf re-published Baptista Porta’s work on cyphers, published by Ioa Maria Scotus in Naples in 1563, but according to Spedding not en vente until 1568. This reprint was dedicated to Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland. After the edition had been printed off, the title-page was altered to correspond with the 1563 publication, the dedication was taken out and a copy of the original dedication was substituted, and over this was placed the AA headpiece. Then an edition was struck off which until to-day has been sold and re-sold as the first edition of Baptista’s work.'

W. T. Smedley owned a copy of each of the original genuine 1563 edition of De Furtivis Literarum Notis, the falsely dated edition published by Wolfe made to look like the original 1563 edition with a Baconian-Rosicrucian AA headpiece over the dedication page, and the 1591 edition of De Furtivis Literarum Notis republished by Wolfe with a dedication to Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland:

'The false-dated copy is annotated throughout in Francis Bacon’s handwriting. As was his invariable custom he went through the errata, altered each one, and as he did so ticked off the schedule [and] when I opened the 1591 copy I was surprised to find there also Bacon’s handwriting.'

[William T. Smedley, ‘A False-Dated Book’, in Baconiana, Vol. VIII, Third Series, Oct 1910, pp. 187-8; William T. Smedley, The Mystery Of Francis Bacon (London: Robert Banks & Son, 1912), p. 134]

The 1591 dedication page of De Furtivis Literarum Notis republished by John Wolfe dedicated to Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland contains several Baconian/Rosicrucian ciphers. It will be observed that the dedication page contains a large capital C which represents the number 100 in Roman numerals: 100 Francis Bacon in simple cipher. The first line within the large capital C comprises 33 letters: 33 Bacon in simple cipher. Within the woodblock there are 234 letters which minus 1 large capital 😄 234-1=233, a triple cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/Francis Bacon (100)/Bacon(33) and in total within the woodblock there are 43 words comprising 234 letters: 43+234=277, a split cipher for Francis Bacon (100)/William Shakespeare (177) in simple cipher.

THE BACONIAN-ROSICRUCIAN AA HEADPIECE IN THE 1594 EDITION OF VENUS AND ADONIS.

1594 VANDA.webp

Here are some ideas ...

image.thumb.png.c7e21869b4364184bd94488fcfec2f6b.png

Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare (1593) - Bodleian Library, Oxford University, Oxford, UK

https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/

 

"Will" is the 22nd word.

22 was an important number for Francis Bacon who was born the 22nd day of 1561

The simple cipher of Bacon is 33 and the simple cipher of Francis is 67.

The 33rd word is "So".

Notice that with the "w" of "weake" (the 34th word), it forms the word SOW.

SOW the Son Of Wisdom, the Son Of the Widow.

And 33 + 34 = 67

It gives us:

FRANCIS BACON - SOW

Then, we have IBACON 

"I" is the 44th word. 

44 is the gematria of yeled (Child) dam (blood) chol (Phoenix)

I ,BACON ,THE CHILD WITH THE BLOOD OF THE PHOENIX

"me" is the 100th word if we count "god-father" as one.

100 is the simple cipher of FRANCIS BACON.

Francis Bacon tells us that he is the First heire of Elisa, the "virgin" Queen Elisabeth,

and that his "god"-father was Robert Dudley, who was nicknamed "Eyes" by the Queen.

Moreover, there are 67 words from "Right" to "labour."(First full stop)

67 is the simple cipher of FRANCIS.

There are 66 words from "But" to "expectation."(Second full stop)

66 is the simple cipher of FRA. BACONI or I, FRA.BACON

66 + 67 = 133

133 = 100 + 33 = FRANCIS BACON - 33

(133 is also the simple cipher of ROSIE-CROSS)

And finally , there are 153 words in total ( or 154 if we count god-father as two words)

153 = 100 + 53 = FRANCIS BACON - SOW/SWAN/POET

And you know what ?

VENUS AND ADONIS = 153 (simple cipher)

image.png.bbe29046725c1924f0e807e0eaad53c6.png

By the way,  ROMEO AND JULIET  = 153 

image.png.a0085dfb5e85dadc7d81f4eb71f7fb4f.png

Notice that the two titles share the same simple, reverse, short, Kaye cipher (24 Letter Alphabet)

and the same simple and reverse cipher (26 Letter Alphabet) 🙂

In the Sonnets dedication poem, after a year or so of playing with it, I took the hyphen to flip the words.

EVER-LIVING to LIVING EVER

WELL-WISHING TO WISHING WELL

So for me, "god-father" can be not only two words, but "father" and "god" (lower case?) in that order.

Still kicking around some of these words that appear at the beginning of these lines; "count my self", "first heir", "had a noble father"...

In 1593 who was Willy Shakspur? This dedication to Henrie W, who knew Bacon and was at Grays Inn by 1588 I think, he must have known who was writing the plays. That Bacon would dedicate this play to him would make Henrie smile knowing Bacon was being so kind.

If any of them knew Willy Shakey at the time, they knew he couldn't write his own name, much less a play.

Sonnet 141. One I have studied...

Original text:

IN faith I doe not loue thee with mine eyes,
For they in thee a thou{s}and errors note,
But 'tis my heart that loues what they di{s}pi{s}e,
Who in di{s}pight of view is plea{s}d to dote.
Nor are mine eares with thy toungs tune delighted,
Nor tender feeling to ba{s}e touches prone,
Nor ta{{s}t}e, nor {s}mell, de{{s}i}re to be inuited
To any {s}en{s}uall fea{{s}t} with thee alone:
But my {fi}ue wits,nor my {fi}ue {s}ences can
Di{s}wade one fooli{{s}h} heart from {s}eruing thee,
Who leaues vn{s}wai'd the likene{{s}{s}}e of a man,
  Thy proud hearts {{s}l}aue and va{{s}{s}}all wretch to be :
  Onely my plague thus farre I count my gaine,

Days 331 to 334, if that matters at all (33*).

Modern version as the old is harder to read:

In faith I do not love thee with mine eyes,
For they in thee a thousand errors note;
But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise,
Who, in despite of view, is pleased to dote.
Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delighted;
Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone,
Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited
To any sensual feast with thee alone:
But my five wits nor my five senses can
Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee,
Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a man,
Thy proud heart's slave and vassal wretch to be:
  Only my plague thus far I count my gain,
  That she that makes me sin awards me pain.

Lines of the Sonnets:

1960
1961
1962
1963
1964
1965
1966
1967
1968
1969
1970
1971
1972
1973

I was born in 1960 on Day 188. Yea, OK... 😉

Line 1973, counting back from the end of the Sonnets (thanks to a guy who emailed me a few years ago), is Line 183.

Attaching one my tools I have not shared yet, an Excel spreadsheet. I am hoping Allisnum2er (Yann) will take it and understand what I've done. But I also hope there are a lot of Yann's and people like me out there who will read these forums into the next hundred years or more...

I have a few versions, but I think this is the one I use most. But I have a lot of PC clutter and programming notes in my life. 😉

These two lines Bacon wrote to Elizabeth, hit my heart hard:

  Only my plague thus far I count my gain,
  That she that makes me sin awards me pain.

He did not chose to be born a bastard, a King who would never see his due. He was born to be a King, and he knew it.

Was it Elzabeth who prevented him? Mostly, but I think from what I see in his story puts the blame on Dee who orchestrated his life, based on numbers from the time he was born.

I am a Dee fan, feel an intimate connection, but I believe we can agree with Bacon's words that Dee held him back. What could Elizabeth do? She trusted Dee, and it's possible he knew best as far as England goes.

So now what?

Bacon's life is for us to discover and reveal. And hear we are, doing just that.

Here is ALLISNUM2ER, Yann, our Baconian visionary cipher-seerer; Altas with our Globe on his shoulders, or AMORVM as he posted above.

image.thumb.png.de49bd8d6adbd905dc9b26a14c8de7f3.png

I see 102 first, ONE HUNDRED TWO is 157 Simple and 287 Kaye.

74 is TUDOR and WILLIAM Simple cipher.

ALLISNUM2ER just mentioned the number 22, which I could elaborate on myself.

Yann, you were born to do this. I feel I was too.

🙂
