To The Seeker of Truth:
We are about to set forth upon one of the most incredible adventures that man has ever traveled. It will be surprising to you that so much has gone unnoticed in the past, and that only today are these
discoveries being made. If you are ready to take this journey, I welcome you. If you are not ready,
I hope that you will return someday when you are. For those who are, let's proceed by scrolling down the page as
needed and by clicking every link that I submit to you.
I have spent much time trying to think of the best way to introduce you to the 14 Tiered Pyramid
and how it relates to Shakespeare's Sonnets. The path of Discovery that I found myself upon was quite incredible,
and taught me about Divine Inspiration first hand. I have considered that this is the only way that one should
discover the Truth of this Pyramid, but also realized that once in 400 years is not often enough for Truth of this
magnitude to be revealed. So I do have a plan for you.
There are two numbers which I have read about called the "Secret Seal" numbers. They
are 157 and 287.
In the beginning of my studies into the Shakespeare Authorship riddle, I read about how a "secret literary
society", the "Fra Rosi Crosse", used these numbers to place their signature into the
Shakespeare works. They used word counts, letter counts, and various other clever methods to mark these Plays and
Sonnets as their work.
Below is a simple diagram that shows the 14 Tiered Pyramid as it is divided with 26 Days in each
Tier. The first Tier contains Days 1 through 26, the second Tier has Days 27 through 52, so on up the 14th Tier
with Days 339 through 364. Day 365 is just beyond the peak of the 14th Tier. Notice that the 7th Tier
begins with Day 157 and the 12th Tier begins with Day 287. This is an important part of the design, and has great
significance that we will be seeing more of real soon.
As the 14 Tiered Pyramid relates to the 154 Sonnets, each Tier contains 11 Sonnets. Each Sonnet
contains 14 Lines, with the exception of Sonnet 126 with 12 Lines, and Sonnet 99 with 15 Lines. But basically,
putting aside these two exceptions, with 11 Sonnets in each Tier, and 14 Lines in each Sonnet, we end up with 154
Lines in each Tier.
Taking 26 Days divided by 154 Lines, or by reducing the formula, 13 Days divided by 77
Lines, we have each Line being exactly 4 hours, 3 minutes, and 7 seconds. This may not seem like something that
Shakespeare would know about, but I believe it is something that John Dee, the great Elizabethan Astrologer and
Mathematician, did know about. We'll see more evidence of this as we go along. Click
here to look at the first Tier and how the Days and Sonnets relate to each other.
Look at the first line and see that there are two columns of Line numbers. The Line numbers in
the colored boxes are the Lines of each individual Sonnet. The Line numbers in the white column are the Line
numbers of the complete Sonnets collection. One of the first Discoveries I made was that these numbers play a
critical part in many of the lessons contained in this design.
Looking across the Table you will see Day 001 and that it begins at 12:00:00 am on Line 0001, and
that Line 0001 ends at 04:03:07 am, for a total of 4 hours, 3 minutes, and 7 seconds for that Line. Day 001 ends on
Line 0006 at Midnight, but Line 0006 goes on till 12:18:42 am. This is into Day 002, so that's why the color changes
on this Line. Day 002 begins on Line 0006 at 12:00:00 am, but Day 002 does not begin a Line until Line 0007. Or
said another way, Line 0007 is the first complete Line of Day 002.
Now scroll down and you will see how the Days are divided into the Tier and will see the Lines that they
relate to. Stop at Day 013 and notice how at Line 0077 the Day ends at 11:59:59 pm, then Day 014, on Line 0078,
begins again at 12:00:00 am. This is where the "77" Lines divided by "13" Days is
demonstrated. As each Tier is a microcosm
map of the total Sonnets collection macrocosm, this point also relates to Sonnet "77" being the last Sonnet of the
first half of the collection, and Sonnet "78" beginning the second half.
Now scroll on down to the end which is the end of Sonnet 011, Line 0154, and Day 026. All
14 Tiers are divided in the exact same way. On the Table below look for the link, which is above the text of the
Sonnet, at the Sonnet
number, and click on the link "011" for Sonnet 011.
What you now see is another Table with all 11 Sonnets listed in Tier 001 with two sets of Cipher
numbers, each set with "Simple, Reverse, Short, Kaye" totals. The first set is using the first letters
of all 14 Lines. The second set is using the first letters of Lines 2 through 12. This gives us "14
Letter" Ciphers and "11 Letter" Ciphers. In this example, Sonnet 011, notice that the 14 Letter
Simple Cipher is 157. This is one half of the Secret Seal signature. If we take the first Letter from each of the
first 14 Sonnets, which is the first Letter of Sonnet 001, an "F"; the first Letter of Sonnet 002, a
"W"; the first Letter of Sonnet 003, an "A"; so on up to the first Letter of Sonnet 14, an
"N", we get these Letters: "F W L U T T L M I F A W O N". Now add up the Cipher totals
and we get a Kaye Cipher 287. Here is the other Secret Seal number. Pay attention to this closely, Sonnet
"11" contains the Simple Cipher 157. The first Letters of the first "14" Sonnets contains
the Kaye Cipher 287. There are two relationships happening here, the Simple Cipher 157 to the Kaye Cipher 287, and
also the "11" to the "14". In this Pyramid both of these relationships are repeated in many
places. For instance, "11" Sonnets in each Tier with "14" Lines in each Sonnet for 154 Lines
in each Tier, there are 154 Sonnets, which is "14" Tiers multiplied by "11" Sonnets, so on and
so on. I won't point all of them out to you. I will mention briefly for those of you paying attention, and any
mathematicians who may be reading this, that there are other Pyramids to study in the Sonnets design, including an
11 Tiered Pyramid among others.
Possibly you may wonder why the second set of Cipher numbers is using the first Letters of Lines
2 through 12. As I began crunching all the numbers of the Sonnets I knew there had to be two sets, one with the 14
Lines, but also an 11 Letter set. I tried the first 11 Lines, the last 11 Lines, but did not get any results that
I was looking for. Well, there is a very significant clue that I was overlooking, and in hindsight it seems I was
totally blind, but I did get it after a few days. On the Table below, scroll up to the Table that shows Tier 06
with Sonnets 056 through 066.
(At this point let me explain why this Table goes from the bottom - up, and the
Tiers Tables go from the top - down. The Tiers Tables show the text of the Sonnets, so to read the Sonnets we have
to go downward in the Lines. In the Cipher Tables, I show them as they would be going from the bottom of the
Pyramid to the top in the order of the Tiers and where they fit into the design.)
Look at the 14 Letters of Sonnet 66:
"T A A A A A A A A A A A T S". See a "T", then 11 "A"s, then another
"T", and an "S". This is an interesting arrangement symbolically. Two "T"s have been
written about in reference to them being the two "Pillars" which we must pass beyond in our search for
Truth. So here we have two Pillars, and the 11 "A"s may be symbolic of an 11 Tiered Pyramid that I
hinted at a moment ago. The "A" looks like a Pyramid, and the 11 could represent 11 Tiers. This is
something that you may want to study yourself if you take an interest in all this. I will assure you that there
are fascinating Discoveries to be found on that path. In fact the "S" at the end may represent the
Also very importantly are the number Ciphers of this Sonnet. See that the 14 Letter Simple
Cipher is 67. This is the next Sonnet number in the Collection, and this is the only place in the Sonnets where
the Simple Cipher of one Sonnet gives the Sonnet number of the following Sonnet. This is perhaps symbolic of a
bridge across the Tiers. Notice that if we were to use the first Letters of Lines 2 through 12, the Simple Cipher
of those Letters in this Sonnet is 11. Could this also represent two "Pillars"? What is especially
interesting in this place in the Pyramid, is that by "passing" beyond these "Pillars", the two
"T"s, and also the "11", we move into the 7th Tier. This happens to be the place where Day 157
begins. So in some symbolic way, by passing beyond the Pillars we begin our search for Truth with
Day 157. This is an "Initiation", and it's as if you have been just initiated into the Mystical Shakespeare School
of the 14 Tiered Pyramid.
But what about the other Secret Seal number? We just came up with the 157, seems that the other
number should appear somewhere. Click
here to look at the Cipher Tables for Sonnets 078-154. Now scroll down to the 11th Tier with Sonnet 111
through 121. I'm going to let you in on a secret here. If we use the modern 26 Letter alphabet where A-Z is 1-26,
as opposed to the 24 Letter alphabet that I use in this website where A-Z is 1-24, the 14 Letter Simple Cipher of
Sonnet 121 would be 157. Is this significant? Well, let's look at it this way, Sonnet "11" is the peak
of the first Tier and has a Simple Cipher 157, here Sonnet 121 is the peak of Tier "11" and has a Simple
Cipher 157 using the 26 Letter alphabet. By passing beyond Tier "11", with the represented two
"Pillars", we begin the 12th Tier with Day 287. Ah, the other Secret Seal number. We can also look at it
this way, when we passed beyond the 11 Letter Simple Cipher of Sonnet 066, which was "11" and two
"Pillars", we began Day 157. We travel in this path till we reach the Peak of the 11th Tier which is
Sonnet 121, and here we find a 14 Letter Simple Cipher 157 (using the 26 letter alphabet). Then by passing beyond
the 11th Tier, again two "Pillars", we begin the journey on Day 287. This is an "Initiation"
into an even Higher Learning.
( Did you know that using the 26 letter alphabet, "UNITED STATES" is 157 Simple
Cipher, 287 Kaye Cipher?)
There are some very interesting connections between the numbers 11 and 66, and also the numbers
67 and 157. Click here for the 365 Days
links page. Then click on Day 011 on that Table below. Look carefully at where Day 011 is aligned. Day 011 begins
on Line 0060, and goes into Line 0066. Line 0061 is the first complete Line of Day 011, but Day 011 begins on Line
Here is an an important tip for those of you who may want to explore for themselves the
mysteries of the Sonnets. If you study this Tier, Tier 01, you see 154 Lines and 26 Days. Why couldn't we use the
microcosm/macrocosm idea here. "As above, so below." Well, we can, and we will right now. This Tier is
an obvious map of a 26 Tiered Pyramid. 154 Sonnets divided into 26 Tiers. We have a basic breakdown right in front
of us. The 11th Tier of the 26 Tiered Pyramid begins in Sonnet 060, and goes into Sonnet 066. I've already done
the math, and will tell you that exactly, the 11th Tier of the 26 Tiered Pyramid begins on Line 0831 of the
Sonnets, which is Line 05 of Sonnet 060, and goes into Line 0913 of the Sonnets, or Line 03 of Sonnet 066. Notice
that the 3rd Line of Sonnet 066 takes us beyond the first "T". So symbolically, the 11th Tier of the 26
Tiered Pyramid takes us beyond the first Pillar, and into the beyond. The 12th Tier takes us well into Sonnet 67
and Day 157. Compare with the 11th Tier in the 14 Tiered Pyramid that takes us up to the 12th Tier and Day 287. Click
here to go back to the Ciphers Tables and scroll to the 6th Tier. Remember that the 11th Tier of the 26 Tiered
Pyramid begins on Sonnet 060. Look at the 11 Letter Kaye Cipher of Sonnet 060. There is the 287 that we move into
when passing the 11th Tier of the 14 Tiered Pyramid.
Are you starting to get the picture? Well, there is a lot more to see. What about "Day
066", would this have anything to show us? Click
here to get to the 365 Days link page again. Then click on Day 066 in that Table. See that Day 066 is in
Sonnet 028, then Day 067 begins and leads us into Sonnet 029. Since Sonnet 067 begins with Day 157, let's look to
Sonnet 029 since it begins in Day 067. Click on the "029" link at the Sonnet number on that Table. Now
you should be at the Cipher Table for the 3rd Tier, and look at the Ciphers for Sonnet 029 and see the Simple
Cipher 157, which we would expect by now, but notice the Kaye Cipher 365. Here is another important clue for us.
This is the only place in the Sonnets Ciphers where we see a Simple 157 and a Kaye 365. This is showing us about
the Pyramid as a whole, and that 365 is the "goal". Remember how the Days divide into groups of 13 Days
and 77 Lines? If we were to use that as the model for a Pyramid with 77 Lines in each Tier, we get a 28 Tiered Pyramid. Basically it is the
14 Tiered Pyramid with the Tiers divided into half. (Note that the 14 Tiered Pyramid is the "perfect"
Pyramid in that each Tier is divided at clean places where the Days and Sonnets end at the same points. The other
Pyramids divide in the middle of Days or Sonnets.) So with the 28 Tiered Pyramid, the 29th Tier would be
where Day 365 is. Ah, see how Sonnet 029 is showing us a model? Plus is it the Sonnet that begins in Day 067.
Many things are beginning to weave together. It's quite fascinating how the Secret Seal numbers
come up in basic mathematical ways, but in related places they come up in Ciphers. This is proof that there is a
design to this structure. Coincidence just does not offer a realistic solution to this many relationships. It is
possible that once you learn to explore the Pyramid, that you too will be able to predict where certain numbers
will show up in Cipher. And you will go there to find exactly what you are looking for. This is exciting to do, it
is as if we are sharing the same "mindspace" as the Masters that lived 400 years ago.
weighing and considering all the connections and Ciphers that I have found, I believe the mathematical Tables were
worked out by John Dee, and were given to Francis Bacon at some point early on in his life, to be used as a
writing medium for "Shakespeare". I will present the evidence for this theory in the same way that this
demonstration was presented. But for now click here to read Sonnet 122
which begins Day 287 after passing beyond the 11th Tier, the "Higher Initiation".
In the facsimile of the 1609 Quarto edition there are two significant "typos" on this Sonnet. The first
word of this Sonnet, which is also the first word after passing beyond the two Pillars represented by the
"11" (Tier 11), is spelled with two "T"s, "TThy". Remember how just before passing
beyond the 6th Tier, and the "11" contained in that place, there were two "T"s also that
represented two Pillars ("T", 11 "A"s, then another "T"). Well, here we just passed
beyond the second set of Pillars, and we find immediately another double "T" symbol. Next we find two
commas after the second word. These typos frame the two words, "Thy guift". The Simple Cipher of 'THY
GUIFT" is 111. When we pass beyond the first set of Pillars into Day 157 and Sonnet 067. The "11"
Letter Simple Cipher of Sonnet 067 is 111. It is interesting that when we move into Day 067 and go into Sonnet 029
we again find an "11" Letter Simple Cipher of 111. The 111 must have symbolic importance that I have not
gained insight into yet. Perhaps a "Third" Pillar, the "Invisible" Pillar.
