Shall we look more closely at John Dee's role in the Sonnets? 

As one discovers pieces to a puzzle a picture begins to emerge. In my case I began to accumulate several Key pieces of interesting numerical evidence that was centered around John Dee and "William Tudor". By themselves the pieces of evidence were not conclusive, but as they increased in number a clear pattern came into the Light. Subsequently as I began to recognize the image, the new evidence that I would find seemed to bring more Truth to the surface and the puzzle became even more clear. 

The purpose of this website is to bring Truth to Light, without taking all of the excitement away from those who would like to discover for themselves the answers to some of the questions at hand. However, this website does need to present enough evidence to bring Truth to Light, and it needs to provide some direction for the seeker to begin their adventure. With this in mind, I would like to share with you some of the results of many hours of searching for clues, and even many more hours of contemplating the discoveries. 

(For the following demonstration it is suggested that you read the preceding articles which will introduce you to "Simple, Reverse, Short, and Kaye" Ciphers, the "14 Letter" Ciphers and "11 Letter" Ciphers of the Sonnets, and some basic "Pyramid" concepts, especially in regards to how "Days" and "Lines" relate to each other.)

The Simple Cipher of "DEE" is 14. On the screen below please scroll down to Sonnet 14. Remember that the Kaye Cipher of "JOHN DEE" is 188. Notice that Line 0188 of the Sonnets is Line 06 of this Sonnet. This may be a coincidence. Count up the total of the first letters of Lines 1 through 6 of this Sonnet, "N A B O N P" and it adds up to 58. Remember that the Simple Cipher of "JOHN DEE" is 58. Another coincident? Read the first 6 lines of Sonnet 14. 

This seems to me, and I am no scholar, that this might actually be speaking of John Dee. I know it is discussed that "Prospero" is based upon Dee, and Line 06, which is Line 0188 of the Sonnets, says, "Pointing to each his thunder, rain and wind." Again this sounds like it may refer to John Dee. With three number Cipher connections, 14 the Simple Cipher of "DEE", 58 the Simple Cipher of "JOHN DEE", and 188 the Kaye Cipher of "JOHN DEE", it sure seems to be pointing at Dee. 

Line 07 says, "Or say with Princes if it shal go wel." Remember to the word "shal". We will come back to this Sonnet shortly. 

Click here to look at the Cipher numbers for Sonnet 126. Scroll down to Tier 12 on the bottom screen and take a look at Sonnet 126. Remember that this is one of the two Sonnets that does not have 14 Lines, and that the Simple Cipher of this Sonnet is 148,  which is the Simple Cipher of "WILLIAM TUDOR", and the Reverse Cipher of this Sonnet is 152, the Reverse Cipher of "WILLIAM TUDOR". Notice that the Short Cipher of this Sonnet is 58, which is the Simple Cipher of "JOHN DEE". OK, here is his signature, perhaps? Look at the actual Letters of this Sonnet, "O D W T I A S M Y S H A ".

The first Letter is "O", and is a Simple Cipher 14. Remember 14? The Simple Cipher of "DEE". The next Letter is "D", which is self explanatory if we follow this theme. Then look at the next three Letters, "W T I". Of course the "W T" could represent "William Tudor", but what of the "I"? Well, if William Tudor were to have a son, and name him William, he would become "William Tudor I", or said like this, "William Tudor the first". Here is something to think about, "WILLIAM TUDOR I" adds up to a Simple Cipher 157, and a Kaye Cipher 287. Interesting. The Short Cipher adds up to 58, which could a signature for John Dee. 

Let me throw this at you. John Dee was a Master mathematician, and was a cabalist who worked with gematria. In "De Heptarchia Mystica" Dee writes extensively about letters, numbers, and names in Tables. This was something that he did, and was known for doing that. Number/Letter magic as it relates to names, etc. Well, Queen Elizabeth is known to use Dee's services and had him do many things for her. Is it possible that she might have asked him to help her chose a name for her first-born son well before she became pregnant? This son would be the King of England someday, in her eyes at the time. Is it possible that John Dee coined the name "William Tudor" for the Queen, and that he would have explained to her the number significance of the 157 Simple and 287 Kaye Ciphers? In doing this he would also be placing "his" signature Cipher number 58 in the name for all of Eternity. Let's take a quick look at a couple key places in the Sonnets, then we will come back here for a surprise. 

Sonnet 011, remember the 14 Letter Simple Cipher of 157. Lines 13 and 14 of that Sonnet say, "She carved thee for her seal, and meant thereby / Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die."

Now check out Sonnet 084, and it is interesting that 84 is the Simple Cipher of "ELIZABETH". Sonnet 084 has the 14 Letter Kaye Cipher 287, the second Secret Seal number. Click here and scroll down to Sonnet 084 to read what it says, especially Lines 07 through 09.

Again the word "copy". See for William to get the full magic of the numbers 157 and 287, he would need to have a son. In Sonnet 011 it actually hints that she carved him to be her seal, her "Secret Seal". I wonder if the history of these two numbers begins here? 

Remember Sonnet 136, this is the one where Shakespeare gives us the demonstration of the Simple and Kaye Ciphers of the name "WILL SHAKESPEARE", and remember that 136 is Simple Cipher for "TUDOR PRINCE", and is also the Sonnet that says, "my name is Will." Read these lines, 

  In things of great receipt with case we prove,
  Among a number one is reckoned none.
  Then in the number let me pass untold,
  Though in thy store's account I one must be

"In things of great receipt with case we prove, Among a number one is reckoned none", meaning that as long as William is just one, with no son, he is not the full potential of his name's magic. "Then in the number let me pass untold, Though in thy store's account I one must be", tells us that the "I" must be a "one", to make "William Tudor I". Study this Sonnet and so much makes sense.

Let's go back to Sonnet 126 now. Click here and scroll down to the Sonnet 126 Ciphers. So we were saying that the initials "W T I" could stand for "William Tudor I", the next Letters are "A S M Y S H A". This could be saying, "as my Sha". This is why I mentioned the "shal" in Sonnet 14. This may be very important. But there is even a further reason why this is so important. The name "SHAKESPEARE" contains the Short Cipher 58 also. Is this possibly another Dee signature? Could it be possible that Dee coined this name as well for William Tudor to use? Let's go with that now for the sake of argument. Here is something else to recognize, look at the "11 Letter" Kaye cipher of Sonnet 126, and it is 264. Click here and then click on the Day 264 link in that Table when it appears.

Look at the Lines that relate to Day 264. In particular look at Line 1561, which is the year that Francis Bacon was born. Now read Line 1561, and see "To know my sha..." "TO" is a Simple Cipher 33, which is the Simple Cipher of "BACON", and "KNOW" is a Simple Cipher 58, which I don't have to tell you what that says, and then here is that "my sha" again. Sonnet 014 has the letters "sha" on the same line as "Prince". Sonnet 126 has "W T I A S M Y S H A", and now on Line 1561 is "To know my sha". Remember that the 11 Letter Kaye Cipher of Sonnet 126, which is 264, sent us here.

Sonnet 014 speaks of Dee, and hints that perhaps Dee can "say with Princes if it shal go well", of course meaning William Tudor, and Sonnet 126 gives us interesting Dee Cipher signatures and hints that "Sha" is his, and then here on Line 1561 is the hint to "know my sha". In these numbers could it be that Bacon is telling us that Dee coined the name "William Tudor", which was meant to be "William Tudor I", and coined the name "Shakespeare" for Bacon to use. Was Bacon's life totally designed by Dee? Both were Masters and geniuses, and perhaps their lives were woven together more than we ever knew with Elizabeth Tudor as the common thread.

OK, here is something else: Sonnet 126 if we use the modern 26 Letter alphabet the Letters add up to, yes you guessed it, Simple Cipher 157, and Kaye Cipher 287.

OK, let's go back to Sonnet 014 for another peek. Click here and scroll down to Sonnet 014's Cipher numbers. See the 11 Letter Simple Cipher of this Sonnet is 74. This is the Simple Cipher of "TUDOR", and also the Simple Cipher of "WILLIAM". Interesting coincidence. See the 11 Letter Reverse Cipher of 201. Now hold on to your hat, because the letters:

"TWO HUNDRED ONE" add up to Simple 157, Reverse 168, Short 58, Kaye 287.

These are the exact same four totals of "WILLIAM TUDOR I".

This is not all, but should keep you busy for a while.
