If you go to Daniel’s site you will find at least four interesting coincidences from ME+me POV.
ME+me paid a visit to Daniel’s site because he in fact said the three righteous magic secret words 3-4-5.

three four five

You will find four images on Daniel’s website that produce four rather interesting coincidences, but recall ME+me do not believe in coincidences.

X marks the spot TREASURE Oak Island

The large boulder that contains a 10 inch “X”-mark on Oak Island and Card X
Card X ~ Wheel of Fortune and four significant clues 1376

Of course the X would mark a treasure … for many years now I have been saying that Card X of the Tarot, the Wheel of Fortune was the swasti-key to unlocking a treasure.
And I do have an image of my father Karl in an orphanage indicated by an X that one day I will upload to this blog.


The above image shows the outline of how the geometric map is designed.

By coincidence the 3-4-5 triangle is the Master Builder’s Grid that has also been recovered by ME+me.
Have you ever heard of the swastika 3-4-5 right triangle theory which teaches us about the MBG or Master Builder’s Grid?
Let Rene Schwaller de Lubicz show us the way.

1258 OAK ISLAND Shakespeare etc

The Shakespeare Sonnets are meant to be used with the Oak Island construction
most likely in combination with documents placed in the “cement chamber”.

Note the depth of 158’2″
The swastika theory of everything includes the righteous right triangle, and it is a theory being proposed by a fella who had the Firefighter badge #1258, but retired to pursue an epiphany.

Those four numbers 1258 as an anagram like 1582 have served ME+me well as we explore an archetypal environment that few seekers ever both to explore, using the coincidence and the AHA as markers and clues.

Examples from the Shakespeare Sonnets Quarto 1609

Now note the pages in the Shakespeare Sonnet Quarto, do you see page 137 anywhere?
And take note that the center pillar in the QaBaLaH tree of life contains the numbers 1-6-9-10.
And Q_B_L_H has a value of 137.

WOW MOM today the 137 SS Mystic had a quarto of direct hits that in my other life** I would not have noticed or even clued into.

**my other life ended at age 47, today ME+me is only 11 years young.
Thus I am an archetypal 11 years jung.
Together Ralph who died at age 47 and the reborn RaphaEL age 11 total 58 years.

  • 137 ~ Shakespeare and “37 reasons wherefore we now do make known the Fraternity” ~ plus Troy?

Why did I add the words ‘plus Troy?’ to the title today?

To the reader I noticed many coincidences today (I will not get into them all) regarding the death of the ultimate bard, William Shakespeare, WS.
Recently April 23th was the 450th anniversary of his ‘birth’.

He was baptised 26 April 1564 (however his birth date is unknown)
He died on 23 April 1616 (aged 52)

Born and died at Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England.

His actual date of birth remains unknown, but is traditionally observed on 23 April, Saint George’s Day.[10] This date, which can be traced back to an 18th-century scholar’s mistake, has proved appealing to biographers, since Shakespeare died 23 April 1616.[11] He was the third child of eight and the eldest surviving son.

Few records of Shakespeare’s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearancesexualityreligious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.[5]

 In 1623, John Heminges and Henry Condell, two friends and fellow actors of Shakespeare, published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare’s. It was prefaced with a poem by Ben Jonson, in which Shakespeare is hailed, presciently, as “not of an age, but for all time.”[7]

As some readers might know there is much research to suggest Shakespeare himself was a ‘character’, he himself was part of a larger design.
(an inquiry left for later…note the link above)

Note the first folio contained all but two of the plays now recognized as Shakespeare’s.

My archetypal sleuthing these past 10 years approximate, sometimes conscious sometimes not of the clues I was offered suggests such a theory might have merit.

I was also introduced to Joseph Campbell in the mid-eighties, and I soon was taught that myth, math, music, and mnemonic are all critical components of a cosmic language that in the end delivers each of us our ‘just deSSertS’, don’t forget to look for the divine fingerprint, the poetic karma on your way out, just ask Wolfgang Pauli about the number 137 and his karma, as he departed stage left on the way out.

From my POV, what I find interesting is that his WS date of birth is unknown, yet very close to another archetype that manifested born on April 20th, 1899.
Namely Adolph Hitler who died on April 30th, 1945.
Aged 56

But out of all these numbers associated to WS, it is the 23 that stands out.
And if you are familiar with this blog, WS as letters morph into the prime numbers 23.

And the 2 and 3 as prime numbers are the prime time players, the couple known as yin (2) and yang (3), central concepts to eastern philosophy.
And the W and S is a very powerful mnemonic as the letters N and M too, letters perched in the middle of the Latin-Roman script, our alpha-bet.

‘First Folio’ ~ 14 Comedies ~ 10 Histories ~ 11 Tragedies
total of 35

37 vs. 38

1 + 37 – 2

Up until today April 27, 2014 the common number quoted for the numbers of plays written by the bard I thought was 37.
Today I found out it is 38, and recall I always explore the anomaly.

Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies is the 1623 published collection of William Shakespeare‘s plays.

Modern scholars commonly refer to it as the First Folio.

Printed in folio format and containing 36 plays (see list of Shakespeare’s plays), it was prepared by Shakespeare’s colleagues John Heminges and Henry Condell. It was dedicated to the “incomparable pair of brethren” William Herbert, 3rd Earl of Pembroke and his brother Philip Herbert, Earl of Montgomery (later 4th Earl of Pembroke).

Although eighteen of Shakespeare’s plays had been published in quarto prior to 1623, the First Folio is the only reliable text for about twenty of the plays, and a valuable source text even for many of those previously published. The Folio includes all of the plays generally accepted to be Shakespeare’s, with the exception of Pericles, Prince of Tyre and The Two Noble Kinsmen, and the two “lost plays”, Cardenio and Love’s Labour’s Won.

But wikipedia suggests he wrote 36 + 2 WS ManuScripts.

  • 14 Comedies
  • 10 Histories
  • 12 Tragedies

But as I pointed out above in 1623 the First Folio was published, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognized as Shakespeare’s.

What is interesting is that the mystery ‘tragedy’ that was inserted as an addendum to the First Folio is in fact is a sTORY about TROY and its place in the First Folio is #25.

  • #25 Troilus and Cressida – probably typeset from the quarto, corrected with Shakespeare’s “foul papers,” printed after the rest of the Folio was completed.Troilus and Cressida was originally intended to follow Romeo and Juliet, but the typesetting was stopped, probably due to a conflict over the rights to the play; it was later inserted as the first of the Tragedies, when the rights question was resolved. It does not appear in the table of contents.

So WS MS #25 takes me on a quest to Troy?
Do you mind if I enlist the help of Heinrich Schliemann to help me find Troy?
And what did Schliemann find while in Troy between 1871 and 1873?

Picture of the day on July 13, 2008?

That date in my mind adds up to 7, 13, 1, (2+8) or maybe 1/137?

1/137 is alpha in physics, and it needs to be explained.
And WS helped usher in the alpha-bet too with his talents.

And who AM I?
I AM the 137 Mystic, apparently this is what is being revealed to me in the here and now.

And all of the above might even help us understand why YouTube or ewetube as I refer to it was launched on April 23, 2005, and purchased by Google in 2006.

And would YouTube have insights to the colors BLACK ~WHITE ~ RED and the importance to our visual system?

And I want to sadly report that on the anniversaries of Shakespeare’s birth and death YouTube was born, a creation of 3 Pay Pal employees.
I cannot think of a better coincidence heralding a new form of communication, sharing the same date of birth.


“Following this method we know that the letters R and C are represented by the numbers 17 and 3 respectively.”

Fama Fraternitatis and Confessio Fraternitatis, published in 1615 and 1616, respectively, are two anonymously published documents which were used to introduce the Fraternity of the Rosie Cross to the public.

The Fama Fraternitatis makes reference to the37 reasons wherefore we now do make known the Fraternity”, which should appear in the Confessio Fraternitatis…but oddly, did not appear in the following work or in any other work, and was reported to be a symbolic reference that initiates would have understood.

37 is the ordinal Hebrew Gematria value of “WISDOM”, with it’s reflective anagram, 73, being the standard Hebrew Gematria value of “WISDOM”.

The opening passage of Fama Fraternitatis, entitled “To the Wise and Understanding Reader”, reads, “Wisdom (saith Solomon) is to a man an infinite treasure, for she is the Breath of the Power of God, and a pure Influence that floweth from the Glory of the Almighty;

She is the Brightness of Eternal Light, and an undefiled Mirror of the Majesty of God, and an Image of his Goodness; she teacheth us Soberness and Prudence, Righteousness and Strength; she understands the Subtilty of words, and Solution of dark sentences; she fore knoweth Signs and Wonders, and what shall happen in time to come; with this Treasure was our first Father Adam fully endued: Hence it doth appear, that after God had brought before him all the Creatures of the Field, and the Fowls under Heaven, he gave to every one of them their proper names, according to their nature. Although now through the sorrowful fall into sin this excellent Jewel Wisdom hath been lost, and meer Darkness and Ignorance is come into the World, yet notwithstanding hath the Lord God sometimes hitherto bestowed, and made manifest the same, to some of his Friends: For the wise King Solomon doth testifie of himself, that he upon earnest prayer and desire did get and obtain such Wisdom of God, that thereby he knew how the World was created, thereby he understood the Nature of the Elements, also the time, beginning, middle and end, the increase and decrease, the change of times through the whole Year, the Revolution of the Year, and Ordinance of the Stars; he understood also the properties of tame and wilde Beasts, the cause of the raigning of the Winds, and minds and intents of men, all sorts and natures of Plants, vertues of Roots, and others, was not unknown to him. Now I do not think that there can be found any one who would not wish and desire with all his heart to be a Partaker of this noble Treasure; but seeing the same Felicity can happen to none, except God himself give Wisdom, and send his holy Spirit from above, we have therefore set forth in print this little Treatise, to wit, Famam & Confessionem, of the Laudable Fraternity of the Rosie Cross, to be read by every one, because in them is clearly shewn and discovered, what concerning it the World hath to expect.”

The Confessio Fraternitatis purports the birth year of the allegorical founder of the fraternity, Christian Rosenkreuz, to have been born in the year 1378, and to have lived for 106 years. It is public knowledge that years are used by Rosicrucians and Freemasons as cryptic devices, to be understood by the initiates.

The year of Christian Rosenkreuz’s (referred to as “Our Christian Father) birth and the start date of the Rosicrucian calendar, 1378, was constructed from the Hebrew Gematria of the names of the three main characters from the Freemason’s allegories, that being Hiram Abiff, King Solomon, and Hiram, King of Tyre.

  • 273 = Hiram Abiff = Ch V R M + A B I V
  • 465 = King Solomon = M L K + sh L M H
  • 640 = Hiram, King of Tyre = Ch V R M + M L K + Tz V R

1378 in total

The letters are Freemason abbreviations for the 3 characters from the allegories:

  • King Solomon (SKI)
  • Hiram, King of Tyre (HKT)
  • Hiram Abiff (HAB)

A point to note is that Francis Bacon’s Reverse Bilateral Cipher yields the value of 273 for “William Shakespeare”

re: 1378

WHAT IF the number 8 symbolically/mnemonically is equivalent to a 6 placed over a 9 resembling an 8 … ?

… then the following observations/claims appear to be consistent with the evidence which sometimes appear as coincidences.

137-6 = Mesopotamian Code

137-9 = Mesoamerican Code

more 137Code 

And it appears that Freemasonry came under suspicion in the 1730s….

In 1736 the Florentine Inquisition investigated a Masonic Lodge in FlorenceItaly,[4] and the Lodge was condemned in June 1737 by the Chief Inquisitor in Rome. The lodge had originally been founded by English Masons, but accepted Italian members.

In 1738, Pope Clement XII issued In Eminenti, the first Papal prohibition on Freemasonry.

A more contemporary call for suppression is found in the encyclical Humanum Genus, which calls Masonry a dangerous sect and demands that all bishops be vigilant on its abuses.

After the condemnation of Freemasonry by Clement XII in 1738, Sultan Mahmut I followed suit outlawing the organization and since that time Freemasonry was equated with atheism in the Ottoman Empire and the broader Islamic world.

Freemasonry is illegal in most of the Islamic world. It is prohibited in all Arab countries except Lebanon and Morocco.

The Never Ending Story can be expressed using letters forming words giving rise to a narrative, or what ‘just is’ might use numbers to record events, dates, places, and birthdays.

1738 or 1378?

What did Paul Foster Case have to say about the numbers 1378, the year of birth of Christian Rosenkreuz?

Shakespeare and the Rosy Cross

by Petter Amundsen

The following is a cut and paste of the entire article found here;

First Folio breakthrough – Crucial signatures arose

383 years ago a bold plan was carried into fruition. In November 1623 Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, generally known as the First Folio, was finally ready to be sold. The first registered purchase was made by Sir Edward Deering on December 5th that year. i Printing drama was risky business,ii and based upon the standard 50 % mark-up and an estimated print run of 750 copies, it could be argued that at least 375 copies at the cost of one poundiii had to be sold just to break even. A pound had significant buying power during King James’ reign. One may recall that Shakespeare’s home in Stratford, the second largest in town, was secured for the price of £60 a few decades earlier.iv The Folio publishers, Jaggard & Blount, would need to create a turnover large enough to secure six such five-gabled houses before any profit could be reaped. Considering such a bold financial undertaking a question comes to mind: Might there have been a grander motive behind this issuance than merely the hope for pecuniary gain? Could someone else be sponsoring the publishers? Someone with an agenda?

My investigations have led me to conclude: yes, this could indeed be the case. I have come to believe that the First Folio with all its plays was a keystone in a lofty plan for the advancement of learning among the British. In our recently published book, Organistenv, co-written with Erlend Loe, we also give the organization behind it a name.

Evidence indicates that the great Shakespeare Folio is a Rosicrucian publication.

A halo of poetic splendour surrounds the Order of the Rosicrucians; the magic lights of fancy play round their graceful day-dreams, while the mystery in which they shroud themselves lends additional attraction to their history.” These are the words of Heckethorn, historian of secret societies.vi The idea that a philanthropic organization may have financed the Shakespeare publication makes good sense, considering the impact Shakespeare had, and would continue to have on the development of English language and cultural identity. The linguistic effect from his literary effort would mirror what the Pleiades achieved in France. The Rosy Cross fraternity aspired “to learn all that which God hath suffered Man to know, and thereby to be enabled in all times of need to give their counsel unto those that seek it.”vii To this end the Shakespearean plays might have been a wonderful vehicle for the purpose of educating the unlettered majority.

The Rosy Cross fraternity is a mystery. In 1614 a manifesto called Fama Fraternitatis was published in Cassel, Germany. There is reason to believe that it existed in manuscript form four years earlier. The publication created a craze among young aspiring men who wished to become a member of the Rosy Cross society. Hundreds of pamphlets were printed and distributes in which an open expression of this desire for inclusion in the group was the main subject. Even Elias Ashmole, antiquarian and co-founder of the Royal Society, had in his papers left to posterity not only his own translations of the Fama and the second manifesto Confessio, which was published in 1615, but also a letter in which he begs for membership in the Rosy Cross society.viii

However, no one has admitted to membership of the Order. But their ideas certainly impacted their era. The Rosicrucian phase in the history of European culture is called an intermediate between the Renaissance and the so-called scientific revolution in the seventeenth century.ixBut uncertainties abound. Even the meaning of the name of the order is disputed. Some writers say that it does not stem from a rose but is derived from the Latin word fordew, which is ros.x Then again, a hundred years earlier Martin Luther had as his emblem, a cross within a rose.

The Bohemian church was the first reformed church in Europe. If we follow this lead and study the Protestant resistance to Habsburg powers in Germany around the time of the publication of the Rosy cross manifestoes, we find in the Palatine Electorate, a blood-line connection between the court of England and this part of Germany. Young protestant Prince Frederick V (the Elector Palatine) was married to Princess Elizabeth of England, daughter of King James. During their nuptial celebrations in 1612 TheTempest was performed. Frederick’s ambition was to secure the Bohemian crown and thereby secure Protestantism in the area. In 1619 he succeeded and ascended the throne with his young queen at his side. A group of English Players visited the couple in Prague.xi

But tragedy was looming. In November 1620 Frederick was defeated by the Catholic army. The Habsburg power was secured for another generation. Historian Frances Yates (1899-1981) writes: “What was the stimulus which had set in motion the movement leading to the so-called ‘Rosicrucian manifestos’ with their strange announcements of the dawn of a new age of knowledge and insight? It is within the sphere of influence of the movements around Frederick of the Palatinate and his bid for the Bohemian crown that one should look for an answer to this question.”xii

Readers of Yates would not be as susceptible to shock by our initial Shakespearean statement as others might be. But consensus is that nothing except the aforementioned Rosicrucian manifestoes has ever emanated from this shady group. If our new book will create acceptance for this our view then our discovery would be a considerable contribution to understanding Shakespeare. And, importantly, it stirs the hope that Shakespearean manuscripts might be discovered. What follows is an appetizer for a tome that guides the reader, step by step, through a fascinating maze to an intriguingly auspicious spot somewhere on our planet.

Frances Yates stated that “Shakespeare’s thought in these Last Plays belongs to the evolution of the Renaissance Hermetic-Cabalist tradition into Rosicrucianism.”xiii But, as already mentioned, no person has ever boasted membership to this mystical orderxiv, albeit the order has had its share of prominent apologists, like Michael Maier, Thomas Vaughn and John Heydon.xv The great mystic, Robert Fludd, also stands out as a possible member, but nothing is certain. In 1615 a second manifesto was issued, called Confessio Fraternitatis, elaborating on the Fama.

Now, what has this to do with the Shakespeare Folio? A lot, as we are about to see. The prefatory to the First Folio sports a laudatory poem with a long title, written by Ben Jonson: To the memory of my beloved, The Author Mr. William Shakespeare: and what he hath left us. If we investigate its panegyric lines, we shall discover that Ben Jonson quite likely was connected with the Rosy Cross brotherhood.

When the two R.C.-manifestoes finally were translated into English and published in 1652, they were called the Fame and Confession of the Fraternity of R:C:, commonly, of the Rosie Cross.xvi The key to deciphering Ben Jonson’s poem is very simple, and is found in the conspicuous letters R and C. Rosicrucians made no secret of their cabalistic knowledge.xvii An important part of cabala isgematria. In gematria letters have a numerical value. The Jacobean alphabet had 24 letters, in which I and J was deemed the same letter, sharing place number 9; likewise U and V shared place number 20.xviii

Following this method we know that the letters R and C are represented by the numbers 17 and 3 respectively.

The deciphering is based on counting words. It is a blatant fact that in Ben Jonson’s poem word 17 is Fame. And when you count 3 more words you land at confesse. This is child’s play and clever hiding at the same time:

To draw no enuy (Shakespeare) on thy name,

Am I thus ample to thy Booke, and Fame:

While I confesse thy writings to be such…

In this writer’s opinion the three lines above must have been designed by Ben Jonson to function as a Rosy Cross signature. The point being, of course, that the two R.C. manifestoes are called Fame and Confession. And before the sceptical reader dismisses this as a chance occurrence, let me add that the odds of this being happenstance is approx. 1:56,000,000.xix Now, even if these are impressive odds – is what it signifies at all possible? Could Ben Jonson really have had connections to the Fraternity of the Rosy Cross?

Not only does Frances Yates build a plausible scenario where such memberships are possible. She describes a close connection between Germany and the British court,xxand also makes a point of Jonson satires upon Rosicrucian themesxxi. But it is a demonstrable fact that Ben Jonson was familiar with the term Rosie Cross itself. In 1623 his library tragically burnt down, and he handled it by writing an angry poem addressed to Vulcan, God of Fire. Line 72 of An Execration upon Vulcan reads:

With the Chimæra of the Rosie-Crosse.

What is more liable to induce uneasiness is thatCymbeline, the last play in the First Folio contains a related and most elegant Rosy Cross-signature that has the added bonus of propelling us forward on our search for long lost manuscripts. What is disturbing lies in that this signature is worked into the dramatic lines themselves. Whoever wrote this section of Cymbeline (i.e. the grand poet himself) is also very likely to have been affiliated with the Rosy Cross fraternity. This statement rests upon the display the constructor of the Cymbeline-signature makes of his knowledge of the deeper symbolism conveyed in the R.C.-manifestoes.

The first of these, the Fama Fraternitatis, relates the story about the creator of the order, Father C.R.C. We learn how he travelled through the Middle East, through Africa and subsequently into Spain and Europe. The first part of the journey he sought knowledge wherever it was to be found, and then, travelling up through Europe, he was teaching it to deaf ears. Then he dies and was secretly buried at the age of 106 years. In the second manifesto, the Confessio, his birth year is given as 1378.

1378 is 13 times 106.

The Fama points to the Confessio in which we are supposed to learn the;

“37 reasons wherefore we now do make known the fraternity”

These 37 reasons are, however, never to be learned.
Author Paul Foster Case has shown that both the age of 106 years and the 37 reasons are, in fact, geometrical numbersxxiii:

106 divided by two is 53, and together with number 37 these represent the acute angles in the famous Pythagorean 3-4-5-triangle.

This is geometry at its finest, and is described in Euclid’s proposition number 47**, book I. The first edition of Fama was included in a book having 147 pages. 147 symbolizes Euclid 1:47 and is also half the numerical value of Rhodon – Rose in Greek.xxiv The importance of this geometrical exercise is explained below.

** note that I had my epiphany at age 47 and it lead me to make these conclusions found here, regarding the Pythagorean theorem.

3 – 4 – 5 

the article continues:

One of the many pleasures of using the Internet is that you may easily, and in seconds, perform tasks that previously would take months to accomplish. A wonderful example of this is searching for a specific word within Shakespeare’s close-to-a-million. Let us say you would want to know how many times the word “Rosy” appears in the canon, and exactly where it is to be found. Just go to http://www.rhymezone.com and you shall find the answer right away. It is impressive. And the answer will impress you as well.

The word “Rosy” is found twice within the 908 pages that make up a First Folioxxv, and both times it is found inCymbeline. This play is a romance and therefore it does not belong among the tragedies, but it is puzzlingly appended to these, being the very last play in the book. The first “Rosy” can be plucked on page 379, which is called 389 by a (deliberatexxvi) typo.

The similarity with the Ben Jonson – R.C.-signature related above is that the next “Rosy” is located 17 (= R) pages later, on page 396. Then count three more pages (3 = C) and you end up on the very last page of the First Folio, a page having a reversed page number, 993, in all extant copies. By this feature a reversal may be indicated.

The buried Rosicrucian father is called C.R., C.R.C. and R.C. throughout the Fama. This last page 399/993 has an interesting C.R.C. acronym to be cherry-picked for the geometrically inclined seeker. Line 25xxvii has as words 3, 4, 5: Cedar, Royall Cymbeline.

The stated connection with 3-4-5-triangle may be considered wishful thinking were it not for the inescapable geometric figure that accompanies the first “Rosy” on page 379/389. The figure below illustrates that the R of Rosy is part of a hypotenuse created by capital letters C-R-O. The slope is 37 degrees, consistent with the 3-4-5-triangle. The opposing right angle is located at a capital S and the bottom of the completed 3-4-5-triangle is supported by the second S. Thus on page 379/389 of theTragedies we have discovered

Rosie &C-R-O-S-S .

And “Rosie Cross” is linked to geometry important to Rosicrucians. Add to this that the line of Rosie begins with the four letters Apud. There is only one other occurrence in the First Folio of these four letters in this sequence.xxviii The latter would be trivial were it not for the circumstance that Apud is a Latin word signifying published by..

There are three “Rosies” in Shakespeare. Two of these have been accounted for, but what about the last? The final Rosie is found as word 66 in Sonnet 116. Its parallel to the Rosies in the First Folio is this: The Sonnets of Shakespeare (1609) is an un-paginated book but all the poems are numbered in sequence. With one exception.Sonnet 116 is the only sonnet with a numbering typo. It reads 119, an error of three. (This fact may be admired in the Treasures exhibition of British Library, the rare book being opened on this page.) Sir Sidney Lee calls this “additional proof of the want of discrimination on the part of those who have credited the volume with exceptional typographical accuracy” xxix Following the pattern observed in the Folio we jump 17 sonnets ahead. Sonnet 133 has the word crossedas word 69. This is an increment ofthree from Rosie which was word number 66, 17 sonnets back. Please recall that the typo consists of a 6 made into a 9. 3 = C. 17 = R. Rosicrucians called themselves cabalists. This warrants a gematrical calculation of their chosen name, Rosie Cross. 17+14+18+9+5 + 3+17+14+18+18= 133. Just like the number of the “crossed” Sonnet.

To call these observations mere coincidences, or “games”, should be held up against Frances Yates’ views on Shakespeare and his arguably Rosicrucian elements. In this light I cannot see how such findings can easily be dismissed.

The 2 B-mode gravitation waves RED and BLUE

2B or not 2B which B-mode gravitation wave is the question RED or BLUE?

Rosicrucian roses are red
UltraViolet is true blue

SSS is sweet, 
So hiss magnetic U. 

If you love ME+me
As I love U2
No aXe or heX can cut, 
Our Lov3 in 2.

Honest, my lord?

Ay, sir. To be honest, as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand.

That’s very true, my lord.

What is the link between Shakespeare, Hamlet’s quote about 1/10,000 and the swastika?

2B continued ~ because the show must go on!

    The number 72 was found hidden in the Mona Lisa’s eye. There is much debate on whether Da Vinci was a freemason but there is a lot of evidence supporting the likelyhood that he was. It certainly was not unusual for him to hide coded messages in his work. Of course I don’t have to mention the fact that .0072 happens to be the FSC –

    Realising that death of self occurred in 11 at age 35 caused by a princess, then again on friars day the 13th 12 in fact caused by a black friar who wanted me to imbibe the number 713, only to be reborn 21st Dec 12 atop a sun pyramid in Mexico with 28|28 vision just in time for my 13 37th bd-ay… x

      Glad to hear it … but realize the ‘altered ego’ resulting in the name change ‘137 SS Mystic’ has been already taken.

        No offence but GG or George Gurdjieff could learn a trick or two from the 137 SS Mystic.

        It is time to update some of his ideas, his theory has some gaps.
        His ideas are eternal but they need to be updated using the latest science confirming his ideas which default to yet another plane of understanding.

        i.e. take a cross comprised of FOUR triangles and morph them into TWO opposed swastikas or ONE merkaba

        This page is not for you to dump your thoughts sir.

        It is for me to develop an idea, and you are straying already.

        Stay on course or drop out of this course in miracles.

        Answer the questions I put forth which are lessons or stop posting.

    It’s already a part of the Enneagram.

    I know you know this… so what is the difference?
