In light of the recent 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, it might seem a bit unsavory to bring forth a thread with this theme. However, in the interest of keeping things interesting, and perhaps spark some interest in a very fascinating time in history, I consider this to be appropriate.

It's nothing new that there's been controversy about the authorship of Shakespeare's works. What's rare, however, is that compelling evidence is discovered. A norwegian organist and amateur cryptographer, Petter Amundsen, has made some quite interesting discoveries that might answer the question of the true authorship of Shakespeare's works. But it doesn't end there. There seems to be a lot going on, and someone has gone through a lot of effort to encode hidden messages that points to a treasure burried somewhere on the planet.

The documentary Sween Swan of Avon has previously been mentioned in 2009 in this thread Discovery that might change western history. But the documentary was only available for a short time, and perhaps also exclusively for the norwegian audience. (Peruse the thread if you don't want to watch the documentary, as it summarizes very well the most salient discoveries, although I would highly recommend you do watch the documentary!)

It has since gotten english subtitles, and has been published on Vimeo for your pleasure. I found it to be very refreshing and immersing, and if you can stomach listening to the norwegian language, it's well worth it! Make sure you have a few hours to spare, because it's quite engrossing!

Haven't watched this yet, but finding more messages in Shakespeare doesn't surprise me. For me, it just convinces me further that someone, probably Bacon and his associates were really behind the writings. I just don't buy that Shakespeare was some savant given his lifestyle and upbringing.

I'll watch it I just hope it's not written by Dan brown.

Okay, I've spent the last four hours watching this.

I will go as far as to say that Bacon may be the author of Shakespeare's work, but I stop at the Oak Island material.

I think that's a stretch.

Thanks for posting the videos. They were interesting.

If I'm not mistaken Frances Yates has argued that there's a lot of rosicrucian ideas found in Shakespeare's works. And this supports Petter Amundsen's findings, which points in the direction that Shakespeare was a rosicrucian project. It has been argued that rosicrucianism was a proto-masonic society. Altough there's no record of freemasonry in the 17th century, I believe there's a record of a certain person being inducted into the secret society in the 1640's. So something has obviously been going on within freemasonry 20 years after the first folio was released. That doesn't necessarily prove anything on this matter however.

I find it highly likely that Shakespeares works was a rosicrucian project. Jola Sigmond who's an expert in 17th century typesetting (not sure of the correct translation) and an accomplished cryptographer lends his support to Petter's findings.

I can assure you it's not. Alas it can be interpreted to be in the same vein as Dan Brown, I would argue that this is infinitely more compelling though! Hope you won't be disappointed

The Oak Island theory can certainly seem like a stretch. But it is interesting how Petter recognized Fred Nolan's cross to be a part of the tree of life. The boulders found on the island corresponds with the sephirots of the tree of life. Maybe it's not conclusive, but it is compelling.

Thanks, Starcrossd! Glad you enjoyed it. It only gets better in the following episodes. I would also remark that a lot of the findings didn't make it into this documentary, which is unfortunate. There is alot of evidence compiled that sews a much more intricate picture than what is presented.

There will be an english speaking documentary soon I believe, featuring Shakespeare scholar Robert Crumpton, in which Petter Amundsen will present his findings to Robert. Sounds good to me!
