№ 53. SN 1604, Sir Francis Bacon, and the origins of the Rosicrucians

PAGE STATUS: As of this date, I am reconsolidating my work on what happened 400 years ago in Elizabethan England to this page. As important as it is to truly understand the Freemasons who founded this country, there is little time left and I fear the historical nature of this material is distracting my readers from an apocalypse that is now at our doorstep. A huge chick of what was my homepage has just been dumped here. I leave it to the reader to sort it out until I can get back to this page and reorder it.

“Here is wisdom”


Do you want to put a face to the progeny of Jove? Here it is. Sir Francis Bacon was, is, and shall forever remain the most respected among their ranks since Pythagoras some 2,600 years ago. You probably know him as William Shakespeare. The Georgia Guidestones were his idea. 

O farewell,
Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump,
The spirit-stirring drum, th’ ear-piercing fife;
The royal banner, and all quality,
Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious war!
And O you mortal engines, whose rude throats
Th’ immortal Jove’s dread clamors counterfeit,
Farewell! Othello’s occupation’s gone.

Othello Act 3, scene 3 [bold-red emphasis added]

I do not think I will ever forget the night I looked down at my program at the Austin Symphony Orchestra (before the pandemic) and read these lines. I realized then that Shakespeare knew about Jupiter being the minute hand on a celestial doomsday clock. What I did not know way back then was that this was actually Sir Francis Bacon. A whole new world of thought awaited me.

Essential Research Papers

The following is a list of research papers essential to this page:

Introductory note

Everyone is hankering for me to finish my analysis of the Tomorrowland movie and the Georgia Guidestones, both of which are open books for me. I suspect the relevancy of the Rosicrucian and Freemason secret societies—and even more so the role of Paracelsus and his 32 Prognostications—escapes some of my early readers, but you see when I first started this work, I thought Tomorrowland was being used by the bankers,—which is to say the people in control of the end-time infrastructure in and around Denver, Colorado,—to communicate to what I fancy to be the 144,000 (the progeny of Jove wrote The Revelation) destined to enter the multi-trillion-dollar granite tunnel system in the Front Range of Colorado. I was so convinced of this that it was difficult for me to accept I was wrong.

As discussed on page № 10. Who are the progeny of Jove?, there are two main factions of the progeny of Jove (the Jesuits being a third faction). By that I mean people in possession of specific knowledge of the end times. Of those two factions, only one is talking to us. Only one is trying to warn us. The other is too busy trying to save the species from rebooting as cavemen. The bankers do not make movies. The Ћinkers do. This is a critical point for understanding what is happening with all of the end-time warnings listed below, especially all of the movies that are being used to reach people who have no idea what is happening. All of the end-time markers discussed on this website must be interpreted in the light of who is warning us. The bankers do not communicate to us. In fact, they regard us as little more than the walking dead. Yes, they numerically sign their work, such as they did in the design of the World Trade Center. Thank god for that because otherwise tracing them through history would be impossible. It is the unmistakable 322 numeric signature on the World Trade Center that elevates what happened on September 11, 2001 (9/11) to the status of an end-time marker. But that is the full extent to which they play this game. If someone is trying to warn us,—if someone is communicating to us,—it is the Ћinkers, not the bankers, and all such communications must be understood in that light.

Thus you cannot get the big picture of the Tomorrowland movie—nor will I return to my analysis of it—without first fully understanding what happened 400 years ago in Elizabethan England. I am emphatic on this point. The same applies to the Georgia Guidestones. What hope is there of fully understanding them without grasping the significance of “R.C. Christian”? And so I have dedicated a number of pages to this subject as well as my entire homepage. It is not enough to tell a person the world in which they live is about to come to an end and that within a few short years everything and everyone they have ever known will be erased from the face of the Earth in one apocalyptic day the Bible refers to as the “day of the Lord.” Anyone can make such a statement. But without the weight of 400 years of evidence provided by men whose work I imagine I am completing, the mind cannot accept the reality that confronts this generation. Trust me when I say this. I still encourage readers to begin with my Our Entirely Fabricated Reality menu (where your ability to comprehend this work will be severely tested), but do not think you can escape the necessity of understanding the man you know of as William Shakespeare (the writer, not the actor).  You do not need to read the Shakespeare plays. But you do need to know everything I say about him on this website. Without these men, none of us would know anything.

“Such a blazing star is called a nova

—Immanuel Velikovsky

The term blazing star as used by the secret societies is not a reference to Sirius. Sirius is but a big gear in the timepiece of the ancients, which are the more distant stars of the Zodiac. A blazing star is what we think of today as a supernova. And in the world of An Apocalyptic Synthesis when you hear or see a reference to either novas or supernovas, the first thing you should think of is Elizabethan England. Of a truth, I say SN 1604 is more important to this generation than the Star of Bethlehem.

QUESTION: Why is a website that purports to reveal that the year of the apocalypse is most likely 2022 so focused on Elizabethan England?

ANSWER: Anyone can tell you the world in which you live is about to end. As can be seen in Wikipedia’s article on the subject entitled List of dates predicted for apocalyptic events, people have been doing so for hundreds of years now. I am loath to join that list. All I ever wanted to do was to write a book about what happened in 3100 BC. So please at least try to listen to my answer. It is necessarily lengthy because of what is at stake. Fail to grasp the significance of this answer and I seriously doubt I will ever be able to convince you of anything that I am saying on this website. 

For over 400 years now, the historical Rosicrucians and the Freemasons in the South have been trying to warn us about the coming Earth crustal displacement, apocalypse, “day of the Lord,” or whatever you want to call it. This is in large part why they exist. The remaining handful of Freemasons in the South who know the truth went silent in 2015, exactly 400 years after they began their journey. That was the year they released Tomorrowland and The Walk, our last two end-time warnings. We are fast running out of time. If you want to survive what is about to happen, you need to take the time to understand the role these men played in the history of the United States of America, the Land of the End Time. Otherwise, you will never accept the mind-boggling, seemingly alternative reality presented on this website. 

Let us consider what is for me a very important example of the relevance of Elizabethan Englandthe USS Cygnus. That is the name of a spaceship in an obscure 1979 Walt Disney Pictures’ film entitled The Black Hole. This movie is very subtly referenced in Tomorrowland and is how a people I refer to as the Ћinkers chose to reveal a “course correction” of five years from the biblical “great wonder” of September 23, 2017, to what they believe to be the year of the apocalypse in 2022. I was the one who found and disclosed the link between these two movies and the significance of The Black Hole to the end time. But I did so long before this website was even remotely aware of what happened in Elizabethan England 400 years ago.

Two paths

It was not until after intensely studying Sir Francis Bacon for months on end that I rewatched this movie. And when I did, something changed inside of me. I too have my own serious doubts about the validity of all I am saying on this website. I write what I see, but that does not mean I believe all of it myself. I am in a very real sense a spectator not unlike yourself. For years now, I’ve walked two paths. One which allows for me awakening on the morning of January 1, 2025, admitting my folly to the world, and wholly abandoning this work. The other path is to watch as the evidence mounts to refute any possibility that everything I am saying is the product of a highly imaginative mind. I have a few stalwart supporters who will not hesitate to tell you the interconnectivity of everything I am saying cannot be the product of someone’s imagination. Until I rewatched this movie, I only felt that way about page № 33. Mary Baker Eddy and the end-time. But upon the rewatching of this movie, realizing the significance of the name USS Cygnus, and for the first time hearing the hidden dialogue, not unlike that hidden in Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, something inside of me changed. A world I feared existed only in my imagination now seems more real to me than ever before. I assure you, this rewatching of what I can only describe as a B-movie felt very much like a revelation. It was life-changing because it confirmed for me everything I had worked so hard to learn about the man you know of as Shakespeare. 

My point?

In a very real way, I am in this the same as you. And if it has taken eight years of research and five years of writing in public for me to allow myself for the first time ever to seriously consider the possibility that all of this stuff is real, you need to give yourself time. Making the connections for yourself, seeing and understanding the pivotal role of the so-called Civil War, rewriting the history of the United States of America, and awakening to the reality of what is happening in Colorado requires time. No one understands this better than me, which is why I am about to start making YouTube videos for the first time ever. People need to hear my voice. I am headed in the direction of introductory videos at the top of each page. Bold red italics cannot substitute for the intonations of the human voice. The picture I am now presenting is much larger than the canvas of most people’s lives. They cannot process what I am saying if reading is the only tool I offer them. 

My responsibility to the reader

All of this is an effort on my part as a writer to help you overcome the objections of your own mind—knowing as I do what you are up against. This is not a contest, and I am not your enemy. I present evidence to suggest the reason why everything seems so weird right now is that something really huge is happening. I know some of you share this intuitive feeling that something is amiss. So I repeat what I said above, you are the problem. You must convince yourself of the truth. I cannot do that for you. And the way to accomplish this is to enmesh yourself in the world of the men who for countless generations now have kept the light of Sir Francis Bacon,the man you know of as Shakespeare,alive in the imagination of the people so that this, the last generation on Earth (“as we know it”), might do as the Nazarene instructed his followers to do and “flee into the mountains” in time to survive the Pacific Ocean pouring over the continent of North America. Your entire world will be permanently erased on that fateful day. Nothing will be left but a handful of human beings huddled atop our highest mountain tops on about 105th meridian west. Further west and no mountain top will be high enough to survive the mighty Pacific Ocean—referred to as the “Beast” in The Revelation. I plan to be one of those people. If you want to join me, see № 32. What to expect and a minimalist survival guide.

USS Cygnus. This is an unmistakable and widely recognized reference to Sir Francis Bacon.

When I first discovered that the Rosicrucian and Freemason secret societies were the product of Elizabethan England, I thought Sir Francis Bacon was the driving force behind everything. And indeed, he was. But behind him was an extraordinarily intelligent and bold woman without whom the Renaissance may not have ever happened. 

Although including such a long YouTube video about Queen Elizabeth I on my homepage is unusual, it is also fitting. And I can promise you there is no better person on the planet to tell you about her than Will Durant. This man is a force to be reckoned with. I suggest starting the video here and then watching it on your smart TV because it is as long as a movie. The world in which we live would be entirely different were it not for this woman. She and her son Sir Francis Bacon achieved more than two millennia of church buildings has accomplished, infinitely more.

400 years of Shakespeare scholarship and no one has ever noticed that “Mr. W. H.” is 12 + 17 + 21 + 8 = 58 in the so-called “Simple Cipher” of Elizabeth England’s 24-letter alphabet. In other words, the “begetter” is Francis Bacon’s mom. This explains why the small letter r in “Mr.” is deemphasized (shriveled up). .

In the Elizabethan England and secret society world into which you are about to enter, numbers have symbolic meaning. Learning the meaning of a number is an ongoing process of discovering a whole new language. But I warn you. Do not violate the simplicity principle. If I or anyone else offers up an explanation—for what I like to call numeric signatures—that sounds too complicated, walk away. That’s not how these men think. They sign their work, usually with dates but the closer you get to the Bard the more likely is the possibility of encountering more sophisticated encryption algorithms. If you survey the available “literature” on YouTube, there are a handful of men and women who have already mastered this material. I already link to the best of them, but only to the extent the material adds to the subject matter discussed on this website. Be cautious of getting too close to the Bard’s own literature. Many a good man and woman have gotten lost in that forest. The stuff I’m talking about is much easier to spot and understand. For example, the release date of a movie such as Tomorrowland is sure to be rich with meaning. In this case, the release date of May 22, 2015, is 108 days from September 7, 2015 (Queen Elizabeth’s birthday), and is part of a highly important numerical signature discussed below that marks the last two end-time warnings from the people I call the Ћinkers. So you see, often numerical signatures include sacred numbers the meaning of which can be very nuanced. Another example relevant to this discussion is the numbers 58 or 558. As in the dedication page for the Sonnets shown above, these numbers are usually a reference to the year Queen Elizabeth I ascended to the throne.

“For Queen and country” reduces to “for mom” in his early life, but after her passing, the love this man felt for her transferred to all mankind. It has taken me almost a decade of research to realize what anyone pursuing this knowledge must sooner or later admit; Sir Francis Bacon had a measure of the Christ in him. If you live in the United States of America, your everyday life was defined by this one man more so than any other, including our Founding Fathers who were mere players in the New Atlantis drama which continues to this very day.
Sir Francis Bacon

Was Sir Francis Bacon the son of Queen Elizabeth I? And was he the author of the Shakespearean plays? The following YouTube videos only became available in the past few days. I was drop jaw when I first watched them, and grateful because providing comparable documentation would have taken an unimaginable amount of work. Hats off to the Francis Bacon Society. And as for the tiresome and hopelessly pretentious academically minded peanut gallery who would debate these two points until the Pacific Ocean washes over North America and makes the whole discussion mute, I have no patience for such drivel. References to September 23, 2017, in the works of “William Shakespeare” are constantly misinterpreted as the author of these works identifying himself as Edward de Vere, 17th earl of Oxford. The principal advocate of this madness is himself a madman. Trust me when I say this. I am the King of the Crazies and Alexander Waugh is one of my subjects. He consistency violates the simplicity principle when attempting to discover the meaning of the men who founded the Rosicrucians and Freemasons in Elizabethian England. Such pedantic madness appeals only to those whose primary interest in the subject is best described as intellectual pretension. Let me tell you something; if ever you encounter someone like this man trying to explain the meaning of anything related to Shakespeare or the secret societies as being so extremely complicated (click on the link above and watch his video), walk away. The nature of being is such that truth always has an eloquent simplicity and no one appreciated this fact more than Sir Francis Bacon and his entourage.

1615 – 2015

Door knocker for Pythagoras Lodge No. 41 in Atlanta, Georgia. “Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” Christian Scientists should look with startling familiarity at the design of the cross and crown. And then they should consider reading my page on why that might be so that she copied this design to adorn her textbook after deciding against Noah’s Ark.

Four hundred years ago, something magical happened in human history. A man you know of as William Shakespeare (the playwright, not the actor) and his tight-knit group of friends rallied to the side of their queen. With their back up against the wall after Pope Pius v issued the bull Regnans in Excelsis, which declared Queen Elizabeth of England excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church, they amassed political, scientific, and esoteric knowledge from all over the world in order to protect her. You see, William Shakespeare was Sir Francis Bacon, and Queen Elizabeth I was his mother. His life was the very definition of “for queen and country.”

Francis himself was a secretive person both by choice and by necessity. He learnt [sic] the use of ciphers early in his youth, first of all from his mother, Lady Ann Bacon, who used cipher in her literary works as well as letters, and later when he was employed by Lord Burghley and Sir Francis Walsingham on intelligence matters both at home and abroad. Francis’ brother Anthony was likewise employed, traveling to France and elsewhere for this and other purposes, where he remained for over twelve years. When Anthony finally returned to England in 1592, Francis, by request of the Queen, “knit” his brother’s services to Essex. Anthony thereafter acted as a virtual secretary of state to the Earl and the Queen with intelligence. Together the brothers set up their own intelligence headquarters in London, assisted by top agents and cryptologists such as Thomas Phelippes, Anthony Standen, Henry Wotton and Nicholas Faunt, who between them had traveled widely and were highly trained and experienced.

Francis Bacon Research Trust, Baconian-Rosecrucian Ciphers by Peter Dawkins

At present, I use both “the Bard and his men” and “the Bard and his entourage,” to describe Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends. Who exactly are these men? According to Peter Dawkins, the “main ones” are:

My notes indicate that I think Ben Johnson and Sir Henry Nevil should be added to this list. I include this list as a convenience for those who wish to study this subject more in-depth. The list above in combination with my additions is my working definitive list of Sir Francis Basons cohorts. 

“Designed History”

The knowledge they amassed gave birth to the Globe Theatre and some of the finest literature of all time. But then it happened. Supernova SN1604, no less special in the history of mankind than the Star of Bethlehem, awoke in these men a desire to shape the course of history in the Western world. Sir Francis Bacon refers to this Globe Theatre roadshow—as I like to think of it,—as “new experiments, which form a kind of Designed History” in his Alphabet of Nature.  (For a complete translation of this “fragment,” see Number 43 and the end times on page № 28. A date with destiny.) The poem inscribed on the memorial plaque on Shakespeare’s funerary monument reinforces this idea of a “designed history.” Here is the very last thought in that poem. I am using a typewriter font to align the two occurrences of the letters TT as they are on the monument. 

                                                   ALL HE HATH WRITT,


Here the Bard and his men are using “living art” where I prefer “living symbolism”  on this website. What does that mean? It means a really smart group of men who lived over 400 years ago molded the future with the same certainty a potter molds clay. It means you live in a world they created, so much so that the tired ole “explaining water to a fish” analogy always comes to mind in this context,—whenever I try to explain the extent to which these men defined the world in which we live. The Oak Island subplot comes readily to mind in this context, but the reality is that the Bard and his men achieved such an advanced understanding of the human character that they decided to take control of history itself in such a way that would extend way past their life span, 400 years past to be exact.

To catch the spirit of what was happening at this time with Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends, I would point out what surprisingly no one else of whom I am aware has ever noticed, which is that this widely known “Temple of the Rose Cross” drawing from Daniel Mögling’s Speculum Sophicum Rhodostauroticum (Mirror of the Wisdom of the Rosy Cross) published in 1618 is the Globe Theatre on wheels

The Temple of the Rose Cross  is the Globe Theatre on wheels

So the Bard and his entourage founded what we know of today as the secret societies,—the Rosicrucians, and a year later the Freemasons—to perpetuate the knowledge they amassed in defense of their queen.

The depth of symbolism in this image is incalculable, from the 666 encoded in the faces at the top of the image to the mother swan at the bottom.

One of their first major accomplishments was the King James Bible, which contains encoded information about the end timesincluding the year of the apocalypse—that does not exist in any other translation of the Holy Bible in existence.

Heretofore unrecognized by even the greatest Shakespeare scholars, “The Temple of the Rose Cross” by Daniel Mögling, 1618, is the Globe Theatre on wheels and contains immeasurably important and unmistakable evidence that the Rosicrucians are fully aware of the fast-approaching end time

They were also instrumental in the founding of the United States of America. But they were not alone in their knowledge of the end times. A people commonly referred to as the European Illuminati, the descendants of the Knights Templar, which is to say—the European bankers, opposed them. As always the bankers sought to control everything and in what is commonly misunderstood as the Civil War, one of the bloodiest wars of all time, they took control of the United States of America, its government, and military. This is an age-old battle between two factions of what Virgil and I refer to as the progeny of Jove, one that dates back to the ancient Greeks whose antediluvian knowledge of the end times was consumed by the ravenous Romans. Virgil himself was the progeny of Jove. He was not only one of them, but a leader. As the Bard is to the Ћinkers, so is Virgil to the bankers. So you see this is how they think of themselves. I did not invent the term.

Like the mythological Phoenix, the remnant of the Freemasons in Atlanta, Georgia rose from the ashes so famously “Gone with the Wind” and finished the work of the Bard and his entourage by erecting the Georgia Guidestones, a grossly misunderstood warning to all of mankind that we really do live in the end time.

Regnans in Excelsis 

The defining moment in these end times was the Regnans in Excelsis (“Reigning on High”), a papal bull that Pope Pius V issued on February 25, 1570, excommunicating Queen Elizabeth. This decision more so than anything else since the Roman Empire would in time reshape the entire Western world. The reason why is very little understood.

How do we define the “end times”? What constitutes the last moment from the perspective of someone such as the Nazarene of Virgil, both of whom lived over two millennia before the event but spoke of it as if it were imminent? Surely they were thinking in terms of what has become known as the precession of the equinoxes, Great Year, or Maya Long Count, some 26,000 years. What are a mere two thousand years in such a larger context?

I divide the end time into four distinct periods.

  1. 1570 – 1604: More precisely from the issuing of the Regnans in Excelsis papal bull on February 25, 1570, to the discovery of SN 1604 on October 9, 1604. 
  2. 1604 – 1615: This is the period of time from the discovery of SN 1604 to the publication of the Rosicrucian manifestos in 1614 and 1615. As discussed in the next section, SN 1604 provided the impetus to “put wheels on the Globe Theatre (my words). During this period of time, the Rosicrucians were founded. As stated in Wikipedia, “Thomas De Quincey in his work titled Rosicrucians and Freemasonry put forward the theory which suggested that Freemasonry was possibly an outgrowth of Rosicrucianism. The theory had also been postulated in 1803 by German professor; J. G. Buhle.” De Quincey and Buhle were right. The medieval guilds for stonemasons would never have evolved into secret societies were it not for Sir Francis Bacon and the Rosicrucians. The simplest way to think of Freemasons is that they are the public face of the secret societies that date back to this period of time. In the first Rosicrucian manifesto Fama Fraternitatis, the fraternity committed to remaining secret for 100 years. So it is tempting to think that when the Premier Grand Lodge of England was founded on June 24, 1717, that Rosicrucianism faded into obscurity. While I do not think the AMORC or any other people calling themselves Rosicrucians today can claim a direct lineage to the Rosicrucians from this period of time, there is evidence that the Rosicrucians were in the colonies and that they continued to exist as late as the Civil War. I suspect they were eventually replaced by the leadership within the Supreme Council, Scottish Rite, Northern Jurisdiction, which notably included the Ohio River Valley.
  3. 1615 – 2013: This is the time of the Rosicrucians and Freemasons, one of the greatest social experiments of all time, and it was inaugurated by Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends. This is what people do not understand for the same reason that it is difficult to explain water to a fish. The Freemasons founded this country are were in direct control of it through the presidency until after the end of World War II when they morphed into the CIA. These people I call the progeny of Jove have shaped our destiny. Truman was the 13th Freemason president and the 33rd president since George Washington. And in what is known as “Simple Cipher” or gematria, the letters CIA equal 13. This is not a game. It is all by design. And the people behind the design are the same people who ruthlessly killed JFK. So you can either dismiss all this as a “conspiracy theory” or you can wake up to the reality of the world in which you live. The decision is always yours. 
  4. 2013 – PRESENT: The general public cannot see that December 21, 2012, the correct date for the end of 13 baktuns (one Great Cycle) in the Maya Long Count, was designed to make us wary of suggestions that we live in the end times. This is precisely why the progeny of Jove waited until 2013 to move into high gear with all of their plans. 2013 is what I think of as the beginning of the end. It is the year Maya Long Count ended, filming of Tomorrowland began, and the CIA declassified The Adam and Eve Story. Obviously, we are living in this period. This is the end time. 

This section is my discussion of the first of these four periods from 1570 to 1604. The second period from 1604 to 1615 is discussed in the next section.

I am working on finding a better presentation of these ideas. What I have now is a Peter Dawkins YouTube video that I butchered in order to isolate all of his comments about the Rosicrucians dating back to 1570 and the signing of the Regnans in Excelsis papal bull. These are his ideas and the reason I hold him in such high regard. Peter Dawkins is in command of the big picture. He sees what is happening from “on high” to borrow an expression from Pope Pius V. And for that, we all owe him a great debt. I just know I’ve seen him present the ideas more concisely, but as of this writing, I cannot find the video I recall watching. Until then, this one must suffice. 

Elizabeth I, Rainbow Portrait c. 1600-1602. Artist Unknown.

Allow me to “set the stage” so-to-speak. What you must understand is that by excommunicating Elizabeth I, Pope Pius V was sending an open invitation to her enemies to assassinate the queen and for Catholic countries to attack and invade England. There was in fact such an assassination plot the following year in 1571. It is known as the Ridolfi plot. (In the context of my page № 11. The centuries-old War between the Bankers and Purveyors of Wisdom, I note that Roberto Ridolfi was a Florentine banker.) 

A group of intellectuals rallied to her side. Most notable among them was perhaps John Dee. They set about to protect the queen by gathering knowledge from all over the globe. Unbeknownst to all but a handful of people, they included her unacknowledged son, Sir Francis Bacon, who she would later honor by making him the first-ever Queen’s Counsel Extraordinary in 1597. Besides John Dee, the others, described by Peter Dawkins as the “main ones,” in Sir Francis Bacon’s circle of friends include his true father Robert Dudley, the Earl of Lester (read Royal favourite), his “half brother” (in truth they are first cousins) Sir Nicholas BaconSir Henry Lee, the Queen’s Champion, and Sir Philip Sidney. Why Dawkins does not include Ben Johnson in this list escapes me. (See also Francis Bacon’s Friends And Associates by Constance M. Pott, founder of the Francis Bacon Society, April 30, 1900.)

It is interesting to note that the Regnans in Excelsis includes the sentence “She has removed the royal Council, composed of the nobility of England, and has filled it with obscure men, being heretics.” This I presume to be a reference to the Privy Council, but in truth, the men she surrounded herself with were her immediate family and their most trusted friends. Their leader was Sir Francis Bacon and they would use the information they collected from all over Europe to educate the common man in the Globe Theatre and later the entire world by founding the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. This relatively small group of men, whose original purpose was but to protect their queen, would in time change the entire Western world to such an extent that their influence can be truly said to be unsurpassed since that of the Roman Empire.

Two Supernovae 32 years apart were the impetus for the Rosicrucians

Before there was SN 1604, there was SN 1572 in the Cassiopeia constellation. At the time, Sir Francis Bacon was 11 years old. A mere 32 years separated these two events. There has not been another supernova observable with the naked eye since then. Given the singular importance of SN 1604 to Sir Francis Bacon and the certainty with which I now believe the 33° in Freemasonry is a reference to him, can there be any doubt whatsoever that the 32° or “Royal Secret” is a reference to these two momentous supernovae? 

According to the Wikipedia’s SN 1572 article, there are only “eight supernovae visible to the naked eye in historical records.”

Johannes Kepler’s original drawing from the book De Stella Nova in Pede Serpentarii (“On the new star in Ophiuchus’s foot”) published in 1606 depicts the location of SN 1604. It is marked with an N (8 grid squares down, 4 over from the left). In both Daniel Mögling’s famous Rosicrucian drawing below and Kepler’s drawing above, the left leg of Ophiuchus touches the supernova. This location is actually very close to the center of the galaxy, which raises a profoundly important and intriguing question.  

Is all of the esoteric symbolism associated with SN 1604 celebrating the supernova and its significance to Sir Francis Bacon and by extension to the origin of both the Rosicrucians and Freemasons, or was the location of SN 1604 in the night sky mystically fortuitous?  

In other words, what is the Royal Secret? From whence cometh our destruction? Is it the center of the Galaxy? Because if this is the truth and Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends knew this long before SN 16704, the location of that supernova in the night sky must have seemed like a message “from above” to prepare for the end time. Words such as “mystically fortuitous” hardily do this justice. The only historical event I can think of which even begins to compare is the crossing of the Red Sea, which I not only think happened but which I am sure was owing to the gravitational effect of the comet Venus lifting the water up out of the sea and then crashing it back down again upon the Egyptian charioteers. Fortuitous? Mystically fortuitous? How can words do either of these events justice? The crossing of the Red Sea is what defined the Jews and has set them apart to this very day. How could they not feel as if they were the “chosen people” of God? SN 1604 has had no less of an impact on all of our lives than did the comet Venus on that fateful day

How can I be so sure? Because along with Ophiuchus is always a symbolic reference to the center (of something).

You must be very clear about this. If SN 1604 were merely a way of symbolically celebrating the decision to put the Globe Theatre on wheels by making what Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends knew available to the newly initiated in England and throughout the world, of marking the founding or repurposing of Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry, then what has that to do with the center of anything? 



SN 1604, otherwise known as Kepler’s Supernova, gave rise to what Peter Dawkins refers to as the “historical” Rosicrucians in the YouTube video below. But I suspect there is more to it than this. SN 1604 is so named because it happened in 1604. This was the same year the real William Shakespeare, by which I mean the actor, turned 40 years old. He would die twelve years later at 52 years of age in 1616. Life expectancy in the Elizabethan era is discussed at length in How Did Shakespeare Die? Here is one opinion from the transcript of this podcast:

He was very old of course by the time he died – 52 was a grand old age when the average life expectancy of Elizabethans was in the early 30s. 

– Ben Crystal, Actor, Director and producer.

He is reputed to have been a hard drinker. Sir Francis Bacon must have realized the actor’s days were numbered.

The Identity of William Shakespeare (the author, not the actor)

There most certainly was an actor named William Shakespeare, but he did not write the plays in which he acted. The writer was Sir Francis Bacon and one or more other men in his tight-knit circle of friends. This is beyond question, and highly important to this website because, according to no less than Manly P. Hall, Sir Francis Bacon edited the 1611 King James Bible. 

The first edition of the King James Bible, which was edited by Francis Bacon and prepared under Masonic supervision, bears more Mason’s marks than the Cathedral of Strasburg.

Manly P. Hall, Rosicrucian and Masonic Origins

This is why I only ever quote from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. It is more than just a translation and is irreplaceable in this sense. Replace a single word, change the punctuation or even correct an apparent mistake in the KJV and you may lose meaning every wit as important to this generation as are the words of the Nazarene. 

In the following three subsections, I have gathered what I consider to be the best of breed YouTube videos from highly respected individuals who are widely known and respected. I have very little to no tolerance for divergent views on this subject. Anyone who can look at this proof and still argue that the plays of William Shakespeare were penned by the actor or anyone else for that matter is either an academic, hopeless egotist or a fool. I for one can no longer can distinguish between the three. 

Peter Dawkins and the SN 1604 explanation for Christian Rosenkreuz

Peter Dawkins is the foremost authority on the true identity of William Shakespeare.

Sir Francis Bacon, Baron Verulam of Verulam, Viscount Saint Alban (1561-1626), was not only a recognized genius but also a man of many parts—a renowned philosopher, poet, orator, author, essayist, cryptographer, courtier, lawyer, parliamentarian, statesman, intellectual reformer and master of the English tongue. He was the first QC and KC, and in later life became Lord Keeper of the Great Seal and Lord Chancellor, with the titles Baron Verulam of Verulam and Viscount St Alban.

Bacon lived during the height of the English Renaissance and the beginning of the modern era, of which he is considered to be a major founder. Not only was he likened to Plato, as “the Third after Plato”, but the Royal Society of England acknowledged him as their instaurator, as also did the French Academy of France.

He referred to himself as “the herald of the new age”, and Paracelsus prophesied his appearance as “Elias the Artist… who shall reveal many things”. The Order Cabbalistic de la Rosecroix described Elias the Artist as the “Genius Director of the Rose Cross… Spirit of Liberty, of Science and Love which must regenerate the world.”

Bacon was a man of mystery—a Freemason, Rosicrucian and “concealed poet”, acknowledged as “The very nerve of genius, the marrow of persuasion, the golden stream of eloquence, the precious gem of concealed literature,” the “Light-bearer” and “Day-Star of the Muses”, “leader of the choir of Muses and their disciples,” and renovator of Philosophy by means of Comedy and Tragedy (i.e. stage plays).

Likened to both Apollo and Pallas Athena, the Spear-shaker, Francis Bacon led a studio of “good pens” and both inaugurated and led the Shakespeare scene. Clues to his mystery are given in his unique titles, Baron Verulam of Verulam, which means ‘Spear-shaker of Verulamium’, and Viscount St Alban, which is the name of the Romano-British saint, St Alban, the reputed founder of Freemasonry in England. The higher degrees of the original Speculative Freemasonry were those of the Rose Cross.

Bacon not only headed the Rosy Cross Fraternity (Rosicrucians) but his Great Instauration is based on ancient wisdom and biblical and cabalistic principles. A study and knowledge of this is a major gateway into the true but veiled ever-living Wisdom Tradition. The aim is to discover truth.

Francis Bacon Society presents Peter Dawkins 3:- ‘The Shakespeare Monument’ from the The Francis Bacon Society YouTube channel

It is important to understand peter Dawkins’s use of the term “historical” in reference to the Rosicrucian order founded by Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends. The distinction being made is between these historical Rosicrucians and people who claim to be Rosicrucians today. In truth, the Rosicrucians seem to fade away into nothingness after the Civil War. 

xxxBy contrast, “The Fraternity of the Rose Cross” spoken of in the first Rosicrucian manifesto, Fama Fraternitatis, is best thought of as allegorical. In other words, Christian Rosenkreuz (also known as Christian Rose Cross or “Frater C.R.C.”) is not a real person. 

SN 1604

How do we know this? How do we know there were no Rosicrucians before Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends? 

01:15 minute clip from Francis Bacon and the Rosicrucians by Peter Dawkins Part 1 on The Francis Bacon Society YouTube channel

Christian Rosenkreuz

Born: 1378

Lived 106 years

1378 + 106 = 1484

Body “accidentally” found 120 years later

I feel very strongly that this 120 is referring to the other 12 Zodiac signs. SN 1604 occurred in Ophiuchus

1484 + 120 = SN 1604

In reality, Sir Francis Bacon started with 1604 and worked backward.

SN 1604 – 120 = 1484

Body “accidentally” found 120 years later

1484 – 106 = 1378

Lived 106 years

Born: 1378

The only numbers that matter are in red. In other words, 1378 and 1484 are completely arbitrary. Christian Rosenkreuz is not a real person. The 106-year lifespan is what unites everything in the Rosicrucian signature in the First Folio.

The name Christian Rosenkreuz commenurates SN 1604

This is why the address of Pythagoras Lodge No. 41, a critically important lodge in the symbolism of the Georgia Guidestones, is 108 E Ponce de Leon Ave, but the entranceway to the building has the address 106.

Petter Amundsen and the meaning of numbers 53 and 106

I greatly appreciate Dr. Robert Crumpton’s presentation of the work of Petter Amundsen in the following Cracking The Shakespeare Code YouTube because I share his sentiment that Amundsen does himself a disservice by going to far with his material. But what I have isolated in the following clip is of such profound importance to understanding the world in which we live that words cannot do it justice. 

Everything hinges on the number 53, which explains my page number also. The two occurrences of Bacon in the First Folio are on pages 53 and 53 + 53 = 106, which is the Rosicrucian connection. So in number 53, we have both the authorship of the works attributed to William Shakespeare and the founder of what Dawkins calls “historical” Rosicrucianism. Sir Francis Bacon was behind everything, including the grossly misunderstood Georgia Guidestones

We could here relate and declare what all the time from the year 1378 (when our Christian father was born) till now hath happened, what alterations he hath seen in the world these one hundred and six years of his life, what he left after his happy death to be attempted by our Fathers and by us, but brevity, which we do observe, will not permit at this present to make rehearsal of it…

The “simple cipher” is based on the 24-letter Elizabethian alphabet which does not include the letters J or U. The letters existed, but they were not part of the alphabet. The “J” was usually used as the capital form of the letter “i” in the Elizabethan alphabet. The letter “u” was used only in the middle of a word, and the “v” was used at the beginning.

RC = 17 + 3 = 20

And this is the unmistakeable Rosicrucian signature on the First Folio

How do you say thank you to someone like Petter Amundsen? His genius in discovering this extremely well-hidden code makes it possible for others to focus their attention on Sir Francis Bacon in an effort to understand what he intended to accomplish when, late in his life and after the death of William Shakespeare (the actor), he put the Globe theatre on wheels by founding the “historical” Rosicrucians. Anyone having first seen this video or read his book The Seven Steps to Mercy: with Shakespeare’s Key to the Oak Island Templum who would then argue against Sir Francis Bacon as the author of the works historically attributed to the actor William Shakespeare is either a dullard or a pretentious, egotistical and thoroughly disgusting pedagogue who cares more about being the center of attention than he does the pursuit of truth. There is precisely such a pitifully ugly human being in Cracking The Shakespeare Code and his clothing betrays his true character.

Sir Francis Bacon most certainly did not die on April 9, 1623

Ben Johnson’s eulogy to Sir Francis Bacon in the First Folio entitled To the memory of my Beloved, the Author Mr. William Shakespeare: And What He Hath Left Us makes it abundantly clear that Bacon is still alive. 

To draw no envy, Shakespeare, on thy name,
Am I thus ample to thy book and fame;
While I confess thy writings to be such
As neither man nor Muse can praise too much.
’Tis true, and all men’s suffrage. But these ways
Were not the paths I meant unto thy praise;
For seeliest Ignorance on these may light,
Which, when it sounds at best, but echoes right;
Or blind Affection, which doth ne’er advance
The truth, but gropes and urgeth all by chance;
Or crafty Malice might pretend this praise,
And think to ruin where it seem’d to raise.
These are as some infamous bawd or whore
Should praise a matron. What could hurt her more?
But thou art proof against them, and, indeed,
Above the ill-fortune of them, or the need.
I, therefore, will begin. Soul of the age!
The applause, delight, the wonder of our stage,
My Shakespeare, rise! I will not lodge thee by
Chaucer, or Spenser, or bid Beaumont lie
A little further, to make thee a room:
Thou art a monument without a tomb,
And art alive still, while thy book doth live,
And we have wits to read, and praise to give.
That I not mix thee so, my brain excuses;
I mean, with great but disproportion’d Muses.
For, if I thought my judgment were of years,
I should commit thee, surely, with thy peers.
And tell how far thou didst our Lyly outshine,
Or sporting Kyd, or Marlowe’s mighty line.
And though thou hadst small Latin and less Greek,
From thence, to honour thee, I would not seek
For names; but call forth thund’ring Aeschylus,
Euripides, and Sophocles to us,
Paccuvius, Accius, him of Cordova dead
To life again, to hear thy buskin tread
And shake a stage; or when thy socks were on,
Leave thee alone, for the comparison
Of all that insolent Greece or haughty Rome
Sent forth; or since did from their ashes come.
Triumph, my Britain! Thou hast one to show
To whom all scenes of Europe homage owe.
He was not of an age, but for all time!
And all the Muses still were in their prime,
When, like Apollo, he came forth to warm
Our ears, or, like a Mercury, to charm.
Nature herself was proud of his designs,
And joy’d to wear the dressing of his lines,
Which were so richly spun, and woven so fit
As, since, she will vouchsafe no other wit.
The merry Greek, tart Aristophanes,
Neat Terence, witty Plautus, now not please;
But antiquated and deserted lie,
As they were not of Nature’s family.
Yet must I not give Nature all! Thy art,
My gentle Shakespeare, must enjoy a part.
For though the Poet’s matter Nature be
His art doth give the fashion. And that he
Who casts to write a living line, must sweat
(Such as thine are), and strike the second heat
Upon the Muses’ anvil, turn the same
(And himself with it), that he thinks to frame;
Or for the laurel he may gain a scorn!
For a good Poet’s made as well as born;
And such wert thou! Look how the father’s face
Lives in his issue; even so, the race
Of Shakespeare’s mind and manners brightly shines
In his well-turnèd and true-filèd lines;
In each of which he seems to shake a lance
As brandish’d at the eyes of Ignorance.
Sweet Swan of Avon! what a sight it were
To see thee in our water yet appear,
And make those flights upon the banks of Thames
That so did take Eliza, and our James!
But stay, I see thee in the hemisphere
Advanc’d, and made a constellation there!
Shine forth, thou star of poets, and with rage
Or influence, chide, or cheer the drooping stage;
Which since thy flight from hence hath mourn’d like night,
And despairs day, but for thy volume’s light.

Susan Roberts and the parentage of Sir Francis Bacon

Susan Roberts is in a class by itself. After watching this, I decide no further work was required to establish the true identity of William Shakespeare, the writer. This video’s greatest contribution is in establishing the parentage of Sir Francis Bacon. He was the son of Queen Elizabeth.

Who are the Rosicrucians?

Sir Francis Bacon, Ben Johnson, Sir Henry Nevil

Described by Peter Dawkins as the “main ones”:

  • Sir Nicholas Bacon
  • John Dee
  • Robert Dudley, the Earl of Lester
  • Sir Henry Lee
  • Sir Philip Sidney

And what is their connection to the Freemasons?

The Georgia Guidestones prove A. E. Waite was wrong in his contempt for the Freemasons. For although the Rosicrucians may be using the Freemasons as a front in the hidden 108 miles from the Georgia Guidestones to three different Freemason temples, surely the Freemasons at the very least must have cooperated in the endeavor.

I do not propose to discuss the origin of Freemasonry. That vexatious question has been perpetually debated with singularly unprofitable results. All I am concerned with proving is that there is no traceable connection between Masonry and Rosicrucianism. The former is defined by its initiates to be “a science of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols,” and again as “a system of doctrines taught, in a manner peculiar to itself, by allegories and symbols. . . . Its ceremonies are external additions, which affect not its substance.” The two doctrines of the unity of God and the immortality of the soul constitute “the philosophy of Freemasonry.” It has never been at any period of its history an association for scientific researches and the experimental investigation of Nature, which was a primary object with the Rosicrucian Brotherhood. It has not only never laid claim to the possession of any transcendental secrets of alchemy and magic, or to any skill in medicine, but has never manifested any interest in these or kindred subjects. Originally an association for the diffusion of natural morality, it is now simply a benefit society. The improvement of mankind and the encouragement of philanthropy were and are its ostensible objects, and these also were the dream of the Rosicrucian, but, on the other hand, it has never aimed at a reformation in the arts and sciences, for it was never at any period a learned society, and a large proportion of its members have been chosen from illiterate classes. It is free alike from the enthusiasm and the errors of the elder Order, for though at one time it appears to have excluded Catholics from its ranks, as at this day the Catholic Church excommunicates and denounces its members, it has been singularly devoid of prejudices and singularly unaffected by the crazes of the time. It has not committed itself to second Advent theories; it does not call the Pope Antichrist; it does not expect a universal cataclysm. It preaches a natural morality, and has so little interest in mysticism that it daily misinterprets and practically despises its own mystical symbols.

The Real History of the Rosicrucians by Arthur Edward Waite, 1887, CHAPTER XV, CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ROSICRUCIANS AND FREEMASONS, p. 403-404 [bold-red emphasis added]

There were only two Rosicrucian Manifestos

This is important to understand because I think it explains the May 22, 2015 release date of Tomorrowland, 400 years after the publication of the second Rosicrucian manifesto.

02:19 minute clip from Francis Bacon and the Rosicrucians by Peter Dawkins Part 1 on The Francis Bacon Society YouTube channel

Furthermore, Johannes Valentinus Andreae, the purported author of the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, describes his own work as a ludibrium.

Ludibrium is a word derived from Latin ludus (plural ludi), meaning a plaything or a trivial game. In Latin ludibrium denotes an object of fun, and at the same time, of scorn and derision, and it also denotes a capricious game itself: e.g., ludibria ventis (Virgil), “the playthings of the winds”, ludibrium pelagis (Lucretius), “the plaything of the waves”; Ludibrio me adhuc habuisti (Plautus), “Until now you have been toying with me.”

The term “ludibrium” was used frequently by Johann Valentin Andreae (1587–1654) in phrases like “the ludibrium of the fictitious Rosicrucian Fraternity” when describing the Rosicrucian Order, most notably in his Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, published anonymously in 1616, of which Andreae subsequently claimed to be the author and which has been taken seriously, as virtually a third of the Rosicrucian Manifestos.[1] However, in his Peregrini in Patria errores (1618) Andreae compares the world to an amphitheatre where no one is seen in their true light.

Paul Arnold translated Andreae’s usage as farce,[2] but this conception has been contested by Frances Yates (Yates), who took Rosicrucianism seriously and who suggested that Andreae’s use of the term implied more nearly some sort of “Divine Comedy“, a dramatic allegory played in the political domain during the tumult which preceded the Thirty Years’ War in Germany.

Wikipedia, Ludibrium

The following translations are from The Real History of the Rosicrucians by Arthur Edward Waite on the Sacred Texts website

  1. Fama Fraternitatis (published 1614 in Kassel, Germany)
  2. Confessio Fraternitatis (published 1615 in Kassel, Germany)
  3. Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz (published 1616 in Strasbourg, Germany)

Wikipedia gets this wrong and says that there were three manifestos.

Rosicrucian manifestos


Between 1614 and 1617, three anonymous manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe.[6] These were the Fama Fraternitatis RC (The Fame of the Brotherhood of RC, 1614), the Confessio Fraternitatis (The Confession of the Brotherhood of RC, 1615), and the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosicross anno 1459 (1617).

The Fama Fraternitatis presents the legend of a German doctor and mystic philosopher referred to as “Father Brother C.R.C.” (later identified in a third manifesto as Christian Rosenkreuz, or “Rose-cross”). The year 1378 is presented as being the birth year of “our Christian Father”, and it is stated that he lived 106 years. After studying in the Middle East under various masters, possibly adhering to Sufism,[7] he was unable to spread the knowledge he had acquired to prominent European scientists and philosophers. Instead, he gathered a small circle of friends/disciples and founded the Rosicrucian Order (this can be deduced to have occurred around 1407).

During Rosenkreuz’s lifetime, the order was said to comprise no more than eight members, each a doctor and a sworn bachelor. Each member undertook an oath to heal the sick without accepting payment, to maintain a secret fellowship, and to find a replacement for himself before he died. Three such generations had supposedly passed between c. 1500 and c. 1600: a time when scientific, philosophical, and religious freedom had grown so that the public might benefit from the Rosicrucians’ knowledge, so that they were now seeking good men.


Wikipedia, Rosicrucian manifestos, Origins [bold-red emphasis added]

As you can see in this last paragraph, Wikipedia also makes the profound mistake of assuming Christian Rosenkreuz is a real person. He is not. Sir Francis Bacon and his circle of friends founded Rosicrucianism and in the process invented Christian Rosenkreuz, as Peter Dawkins explains in a video clip below. 



the title is misunderstood. Much like the name Paracelsus, the title of this pamphlet is in Latin, not German or any other language. The word ternitatus is Latin for man, and FRA is a reference to Francis Bacon, which explains the position of the hyphen and the change to noticeably smaller capital letters on the cover page.

coverpage/frontispiece) image here

fron·tis·piece an illustration facing the title page of a book.

The Fra also doubles in Latin as an abbreviation for frāter or brother, and to this very day, the Freemasons refer to themselves as the Brotherhood. Finally, the translation of the Latin fama is attested to in the work of Petter Amundsen. As he discovered in Ben Johnson’s poem To the memory of my beloued, the AVTHOR MR. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE: AND what he hath left vs. in the First Folio, the 17th word is fame and is clearly intended as a reference to the Fama. So Petter Amundsen as well as Wikpedia translates the title as the Fame of the Brotherhood, but in so doing he ignores the dash at the end of FRE- and ignores the Latin translation of

in the end, the proper translation of the title of this book for someone in the know is something along the lines of The Famous Sir Francis Bacon. But the Fra has other important connotations. 

 (frɑː)n(Ecclesiastical Terms) brother: a title given to an Italian monk or friar
[Italian, short for frate brother (in either natural or religious sense), from Latin frāter brother]

So we know from just the title of this manifesto that this movement is all about Sir Francis Bacon and his entourage in what we now think of as Elizabethan England. They published the manifestos in Germany in part because that is where he moved to after his faked death on the highly symbolic Easter Sunday, April 9, 1626. April 9 is the 99th day of the year. I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to see the 666 represented by this date, but note that this is a classic progeny of Jove numerical signature examples of which pervade this website. He could hardly stay in England where he was too well known. I would defend this position that Sir Francis Bacon did not die on April 9, 1626, were it not so obvious from the symbolism of the “he has risen” Easter Sunday date.


Allow me to explain. The Triple Tau was designed by the Bard and his men for use by the Royal Arch Freemasons. On page № 33. Mary Baker Eddy and the end-time, I present what is for me at least incontrovertible evidence that the Royal Arch Freemasons of the York Rite were entrusted with specific knowledge of the end time.

My evaluation of important Rosicrucian woodcuts

I created this section to consolidate my evaluation of Rosicrucian woodcuts. Right now I am still gather everything from other places. The first subsection is temporarily misnamed to remind me where the writing came from. 

Other meanings of the number 43

CUT FROM A DATE WITH DESTINY in order to make a cleaner start of that page

Tshe letter

It is important to know that the Triple Tau is often represented as a combination of the letters T and H. The character, as shown here to the left, is known as the Tshe letter and outside of the secret societies, it is only used in the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet. The is the capital letter. The smaller case version does not have the same visual effect. So if you are looking at one of these letters in English text, you should automatically be thinking of the Bard and his men. This is why I used the combined form in the term Ћinkers. H is said to represent the Double Tau. So T + H = Triple Tau. But what does this mean? It means the Ћinkers, represented by the Triple Tau, combine the humanity and compassion of the Nazarene with the banker’s knowledge of the coming apocalypse, which in this case is best thought of as being traced back to the Knights Templar some 300 years earlier. The T is on top of the H in the Triple Tau. And when the T meets the H, the Quadruple Tau is formed. This represents the people. In other words, one might say the Ћinkers are intervening in the name of the Nazarene and on behalf of the people. This message is contained in a pyramid that represents ancient knowledge of the end times, which is enclosed in a circle representing what is best thought of as one of the granite tunnels in the Front Range after a tunnel boring machine passes through the Pikes Peak Batholith. Just kidding. They didn’t have tunnel boring machines 400 years ago. The circle represents life itself. Everything is contained in it. This is how I interpret the Triple Tau, and this is how I believe the Bard meant for it to be interpreted.

In fact, I think Francis Bacon’s utterly bizarre Alphabet of Nature cipher was invented for the sole purpose of associating the Double Tau with the number 43 and the Knights Templar. It should be read in this light. For example,

Supposedly, all but a small “fragment” as it is commonly referred to (about four pages of writing) of the cipher manuscript is lost to history. I am going to include a translation of that fragment, not because I expect you to read it, but because it took me forever to sort all of this out. The Latin title is “ABECEDARIUM NATURÆ,” which translates to “Alphabet of Nature.” What I am about to show you is a translation of the whole “fragment.” This is all there is. I just find it amazingly convenient that the Sixty-Seventh Inquiry, which makes it possible to establish that the Triple Tau is 19 + 24 + 24, is the first inquiry in the “fragment.”

From there, figuring out that the Double Tau is 43 doesn’t exactly require a code breaker. Why? Why is it so important to the Bard and his men that the Double Tau be associated with the date on which the Vox in excelso (A voice from on high) papal bull was approved by the Council of Vienne on April 3, 1312? Because he is introducing the Triple Tau and wants to explain its meaning. This use of the Double Tau must not be confused with the initials T.T. of Shakespeare’s publisher. However, this is precisely what is happening in all of the available literature.

I assert that there are three TTs. The principal one is in this work. It is as described on this page, a reference to the bankers that can only be understood by means of The Alphabet of Nature.

The resultant Tau pyramid is chronologically correct and again puts the Bard and his men between the bankers and the people.

  • T = 19 Tau [the Nazarene]
  • TT = 19 + 24 = 43 Double Tau [the bankers]
  • TTT = 43 + 24 = 67 Triple Tau [the Ћinkers]
  • TTTT = 67 + 24 = 91 Quadruple Tau [the people]

This “cipher” adds the number of letters in the Elizabethan England alphabet to the value of the letter T in the same 24-letter alphabet, which is 19. But what you see is that only one of these numbers has historical meaning. So far as I know, the number 19 is not used to symbolically represent the Nazarene. Nor is 67 used to refer to the Bard and his men. 53 in the number of the Bard. And 91 does not symbolically represent the people. Only the number 43 has meaning. It is April 3, the date the order to arrest the Knights Templar was approved by the Council of Vienne on April 3, 1312, when Pope Clement V of the Avignon Papacy sealed the fate of the Knights Templar in France where they were headquartered. It was a betrayal that has reverberated down through history. Nothing has ever been the same, and the Bard knew this. He knew the significance of this date in part because the Knights Templar murdered both King Philip IV of France and Pope Clement V. In fact, the pope was burned alive. 43 is definitely a banker number. In fact, I would go so far as to say 43 is as important to the bankers as is Queene’s Day to the Ћinkers.

Memorial plaque

You will find the special Ћ character representing the Triple Tau on the memorial plaque on Shakespeare’s funerary monument in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon. But why? What does the actor named Shakespeare have to do with any of this?

This video—made by the distinguished Alan Green—is included in a discussion of the meaning of the number 624 in the section entitled The declassification date of an already published book on page № 90. Dr. Chan Thomas author of the CIA classified “The Adam and Eve Story”.

Remember what I said about the Ћ letter because no one reacts to this plague as they should. It is uncharacteristic of the Ћinkers because it is about as subtle as a cannon blast. The Bard and his entourage are telling the whole world the identity of William Shakespeare (the author, not the actor). Why are the groupings of the special Ћ letters backward, 426 instead of 624? Because the opposite of death is life and the plaque is telling you who wrote the Shakespeare Plays. As discussed in the above-named section, they are doing so with what might be considered one of the most important of all the symbolic numbers we inherited from Elizabethan England.


But what about Rebis? What about the very prominent 43 on the Rebis woodcut? What does that mean? The answer to this question stymied me for months. If 43 is a banker number, what is it doing on Rebis?

If you look at the image above, what you see is the line intersecting the four is part of a square. And the line intersecting the three is part of a pyramid. So from this perspective, the image is just saying there are four sides in a square and three sides in a triangle. The 43 doesn’t mean anything. The Ћinkers are disavowing this number because it is a banker number. It only ever means one thing, a reminder of why the bankers are so ruthless. Yet in the woodcut, it is clearly a number. Yes. And that number is supposed to be associated with the Earth below it. Remember this:

Notice the “that concerning the Earth.”

  • The Earth is the people
  • The dragon is the bankers
  • Rebis is the Ћinkers

How do I know this? Because the dragon is resting on top of the Earth, and Rebis, representing the Ћinkers, is standing on the dragon. Why is the dragon so furious?

The 43 is stamped on the Earth. It’s what the people did on April 3, 1312. That’s what this is all about.
The dragon intends to devour the Earth. The Ћinkers are using their knowledge of what is happening to mitigate the destructive forces unleashed on Earth by the agitated minds of lesser men in positions of power as the time of the apocalypse draws nigh. I would add that they are also trying very hard to tell us what is happening. But no one is listening.
Revelation 12
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

The dragon is always a symbol of the comet Venus when it was either horrifying the people on Earth or wreaking havoc on the planet. More generally though, it represents knowledge of the destructive, catastrophic nature of life in our Solar System. In this particular context, it represents the bankers and their specific knowledge of the end times. The Ea MMM

What the Rebis woodcut is saying is that the Ћinkers are attempting to mitigate the derogatory effect specific knowledge of the end time has had on the bankers, to keep them in check, you might say.

The Rebis woodcut is nothing more or less than an elaborate description of the meaning of the Triple Tau.

The meaning of the number 43 is critically important to this page because it frames the discussion in two of the following subsections. They are entitled The World Trade Center was designed and built to be destroyed and The 22:43 Minute MP3 Recording from the Walt Disney Picture’s Tomorrowland Movie. Discovering the 222+43+9+48 Skull and Bones 322 numerical signature in the design of the World Trade Center destroyed on September 1, 2001, was one of only two times I felt genuinely scared doing this work. At the other extreme, the first time I heard the MP3 recordings released in 2013 as part of “The Optimist” alternative reality game ostensibly promoting the Tomorrowland movie, I felt as if I had met God face-to-face. I was elated. These are subjects near and dear to me.

Let me stop and say this; I realize this intense discussion of the meaning of the number 43 is too esoteric for some readers. So allow me to point out the following.

  1. THE SKULL AND BONES 322 IN THE DESIGN OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER: No matter what you think of my analysis of the numbers 222 and 43 in the context of the end time, it does not change the fact that the progeny of Jove designed and built the World Trade Center with the intent of destroying it.
  2. THE TOMORROWLAND MP3 RECORDINGS: Again, no matter what you think of my analysis of the 22:43 runtime in the context of the end time, it does not change the fact that these recordings are real in the sense that their intended audience is some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world. They are clearly eliciting donations. From the perspective of someone who is trying to figure out what is happening by studying the people who know, I regard as these MP3 records,—released in 2013, not 2015,—as the heart and soul of the Tomorrowland movie

So don’t get lost in the meaning of numbers. Developing an understanding of and appreciation for the numeric signatures used by all factions of the progeny of Jove requires time. You are entering into a different world, and I can assure you it is not of my making.

Sir Francis Bacon

That all factions of the progeny of Jove share a deep respect for Sir Francis Bacon cannot be doubted. (I am sure the same can be said for the Founding Fathers.) Indeed, the number 100 is included in the numerically perfect design of the original World Trade Center and I believe that is intended to be a nod in his direction. As is widely know, 100 is “Simple Cipher” (gematria using the 24-letter Elizabthean alphabet) for Francis Bacon. And the 43 in the design of the World Trade Center involves a 3-4-5 Pythagorean triangle discussed below in The World Trade Center was Designed and Built to be Destroyed, which given what we know about the First Folio from the work of Petter Amundsen, would again suggest a nod in the direction of Sir Francis Bacon and the Rosicrucians.

Active Seyfert galaxies

Active Seyfert galaxies are discussed on page № 29. SN 1604, the center of the Milky Way galaxy, active Seyfert galaxies, and Galactic Superwaves. They were discovered in 1943, which makes it difficult not to mention them in this context.

In 1943, Carl Seyfert published a paper in which he described observations of nearby galaxies having bright nuclei that were sources of unusually broad emission lines. Galaxies observed as part of this study included NGC 1068, NGC 4151, NGC 3516, and NGC 7469. Active galaxies such as these are known as Seyfert galaxies in honor of Seyfert’s pioneering work.

Wikipedia, Active galactic nucleus

Was this by design or just a coincidence? I’ve looked into the history of this man, and my guess would be that the timing of Carl Seyfert’s discovery of active galaxies was by design. I know how hard that is for most of you to accept, but I come to expect this level of multigeneration, mind-boggling planning from the progeny of Jove. They are consummate, brilliant planners.


The image to your left is the sixth woodcut from the series in Basil Valentine’s Azoth of the Philosophers. This the original Rebis image. The tendency of the uninitiated is to ascribe great antiquity to such enigmatic or cryptic symbolism. But this is clearly not the case with Rebis as this image was published in 1613. Double-Tau (T.T.) corresponds to the number 43 of the Abecedarium, which is to say that 43 is a reference to …

We note also that Sir Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 and was 43 years old at the time of SN 1604.

Research notes

Simon Studion was another influential German, remembered primarily as a Latin teacher, poet, historian and author. His most famous work was Naometria, whose prose concerned the importance of the star of 1604. He is often credited as being Tobias Hess’s most considerable influence.
