Continued tradition with concepts of "parallel lives" -
and rebirth similarities:
Parallel lives - Senmut, Moses, - and Francis Bacon
By OVE VON SPAETH
Similar identity or time twins? Senmut and Moses appear individually as an
to the studies and the research on history.
In ancient Egypt the opposition against Moses seemed to have
been corresponding to the opposition against Queen Hatshepsut's brainy
steward, the vizire Senmut, who very suddenly disappeared entirely.
Is it really true that the world's most ancient known individual
personality, Moses, is only an invention from later times, an artificially
fabricated history, for the purpose of providing a people with a national
past? Or could there be something else behind leading the researchers on the
In their disagreement about Moses as a genuine historical figure certain
schools of researchers have searched for a solution to the problems by simply
by declaring him as non-existent and thus reducing him to being only a
mythical figure made up by Jewish priests.
The researchers in
question have tried to make the most important figure in Jewish historical
self-understanding to be fictive by claiming that he was a fiction by the
priests! The attempts on Moses - made by his contemporary Egyptian opposition
and later, to a certain degree, by ancient biblical editors - have now got its
repetition in present time.
Also for the female
pharaoh Hatshepsut's vezire, the polymath Senmut, in the years around 1500
BC in Egypt, the circumstances seem so strikingly to resemble Moses'
mysterious fate and even in the way Senmut later was treated by the
researchers. For instance, Senmut can be seen presented as an opportunist
staking everything on Hatshepsut - and - and losing, which happened not so
long before her own scheme came to an end. His enigmatic disappearance has
been puzzling to the Egyptologists; many are rejecting that he was subject
to an obvious conspiracy, and different hypotheses about his fate have been
prevailing in turn.
Similar Royal Titles
Senmut's name means 'the mother's brother', which is no peculiar name when
in this case it is a royal title. -
Correspondingly or parallel to this, the Bible mentions Moses as son of "the
father's sister". This title can be seen connected to the fact that
Hatshepsut was her father's (Tuthmosis I) royal co-ruler, the way a queen
often was. And this status was described as his (Pharaoh's) "sister".
Furthermore, it is well
known that many of Senmut's offices had a special status and aimed at "being
a pharaonic pupil". For instance, the normal tradition within the 18th
Dynasty was that crown princes were governors of Lower Egypt. When Senmut
became a governor it was of Lower Egypt, i.e. of almost one third of Egypt. -
Correspondingly (and in addition to the fact that the Rabbinical Writings
mention that the husband of the young daughter of Pharaoh as the
pharaoh-to-be was also first for a period of time governor of Lower Egypt)
it is mentioned that also Moses obtained such a position as governor of
Lower Egypt. According to the Rabbinical Writings (for instance
S. Baring-Gould's "Legends of Old Testament Characters - from the
Talmud and Other Sources", vol. II, London 1871,
p. 79) he dressed in the correct official dress, a princely outfit with a
Original graffiti depicting Senmut, the Grand Vizire, one of the main characters
at the pharaonic
court, - or would it, in reality, be the young Moses? - Right:
Queen/Pharaoh Hatshepsut, ca.1490 BC.
More than 20 Identical Personal Circumstances
The indications of the identity question are corroborated by a comprehensive
collection of exact parallel facts confirmed by sources about the status of
Senmut and Moses respectively, their offices and their works.
More than 20 identical personal circumstances are directly identical.
As Senmut was working as the right hand of the Pharaoh's Daughter - for
instance as the great surveyor, master builder, architect, general, minister of
finances, etc. - he had the powers to have contributed to beautiful
buildings and to have left behind numerous statues and portraits of himself as well as his own royally equipped
tomb placed as tunnels beneath Hatshepsut's huge temple complex - and among
other things adorned with the world's oldest known star map.
The potential of the intelligent, creative and progressive Senmut is in
incredibly many detailed areas exactly identical to the descriptions of the
Rabbinical Writings and other ancient sources about the multi-talented Moses
as an inventor, organizer, general, star learned, etc. And in addition, the fact
that they both were present at the pharaonic court - and evidently at the
The similarities are so exceptionally striking that they have to be one and
the same person. This can be exactly demonstrated based on a
summing up of the more than 20 special points (in detail presented in my book, "The
Enigmatic Son of Pharaoh's Daughter", in cap. 5). In all areas the
circumstances are very specific and personally identical.
According to a law of tradition a queen could rule on behalf of her son, but not - as
claimed about Hatshepsut - on behalf of a nephew. This example is one of
many showing that the nephew, the later Tuthmosis III, was not originally
educated or chosen to become a pharaoh (what even his own inscriptions confirm),
but Moses instead as he got his high education at the court according to
the ancient texts.
All this on
Senmut will only be in poor accordance with the Moses picture of later
times. However, summing up of all these circumstances the following is
especially possible to re-establish: a) When, simultaneously in the same country at the same court, two so
similar persons with the same unusual positions and extraordinary expertise
were in existence - they appear not as different persons, but persons of one
and same identity. b) Both "Senmut, the favourite of Pharaoh's
Daughter" and "Moses, the
favourite of Pharaoh's Daughter", disappeared suddenly from Egypt - and left behind the same kind of high-ranking posts within exactly the same
time, even the same year in Egyptian history. They have detailed identical
fates going as far as specific personal details; and as mentioned the Senmut
name might have been one of many Egyptian names of young Moses, as he as a high-ranking person had many names - also according to the Rabbinical
Writings. c) Especially: why would Senmut in his tomb show recordings of the stars' placement
in the sky at a special time identical with the episode (dated from the
Rabbinical Writing's astronomical information) of the infant Moses in the ark/vessel
on the Nile, if he was not Moses?

Fratricide as substituting victim? Originally the Egyptian
religious idea about the god-king Osiris was that he, after "ridiculous"
accusations, was killed and cut up by his brother, the god Seth.
the Bible too, fragments of the myth about "the first fratricide" can be
An episode also claimed being "the first fratricide" is known
from the intruductory chapters of the Bible, describing Cain
killing his brother Abel. Cain's burnt sacrifice was not well received in
Heaven, so he tried again with an even stronger effort. This could be
understood to the effect that his brother, Abel, was used as a substituting sacrifice, the oldest known in history. According to the Rabbis, they
were half-brothers, their mothers were Eva and Lilith, and the father was Adam, who was "the first king" in
Adam's third son was named Seth - like the brother of Osiris. Osiris himself was god-king in the afterworld
according to the Egyptian belief through several thousand years.
Thus, the narrative about the brothers, Cain and Abel - note, the
names are a Hebrew pun on 'getting a son and losing one' - can
originally have been about a substituting sacrifice for the protection
of the surviving part.
In the Bible (Genesis 4:15) Cain is being exactly protected by Yahweh
after the killing act, so that:
"... whosoever slayeth Cain, vegenance shall be taken on him
established a protection by a special mark in Cain's forehead. It has been much discussed what Cain's mark would be. The "curse of Cain" was
shown by the mark of Cain.
The word 'mark' in
Genesis 4:15 is translated from the Hebrew word 'owth, which could
mean 'sign', 'omen', 'warning', and 'remembrance'. In the Torah, the
Hebrew Bible, the same word is used to describe the stars as signs or
omens, and the rainbow as the sign of the flood (Genesis 9:12); 'owth
is also used in connection with circumcision as a token of covenant,
and used for the "miracles" performed by Moses before Pharaoh.
Thus, the text of the
Bible only explicitly describes how the mark was to function as a sign
or warning, not what form the mark took.
However, the whole
concept of this mark on the forehead is an ancient idea; as
late as at the time of Descartes it resembled "the closed third eye",
"home of the soul", etc., with the pineal gland just inside the
forehead as a biological
reminiscence of this. Such can also be observed by its more developed
physical stage in some of the reptiles, a lizard such as the dragon-like
Later, Cain - who was also understood as having the omen sign as the third
eye - was regarded as being an initiated, including being a "builder" - a
later freemason-like designation - and according to the Bible he was the
first founder/builder of a city, Hanoch, thus named after Cain's son.
King Romulus, "the master
builder" who was said to have re-developed Rome in 733 BC (founded on Aenas’
older city) also killed his twin brother, Remus, after "ridiculous accusations"
of "Remus' disrespectfully jumping outside the city wall by jumping over the
This was in accordance
with an astro-mythological rite, where one (twin) brother, Pollux, the name of
of the Gemini stars outside Paradise's celestial wall (the ecliptic is "fencing"
the zodiac) was to die, and the brother Castor inside was immortal.
The 'chosen one'
Also from other places, e.g. Europe in the bronze age, similar
traditions are known: to leave little boys who were brothers, often twin brothers, in the
forest or the wilderness and then later bring back the best surviving
brother. If not already dead from the hardships, the other brother was
ritually killed in order to strengthen the surviving brother, who was
then considered the "chosen one" - now protected by a divine providence. The
reference to "the ritual fratricide" is obvious.
In this way a brother could be an ideal substituting sacrifice by
"compensating" for the other brother, so that the gods and the powers
were not being presented to a sacrifice of inferior value. The hostile
selection of Senmut as a substituting victim should also be related to
this mysterious tradition - Osiris-Seth, Cain-Abel, etc. - where, under
certain cultic circumstances, one of the brothers had to die. In the case
of Senmut such magic ritual execution should benefit Tuthmosis III,
his step-brother, to be appointed the "chosen one". This was
arranged for Tuthmosis to be carried out by the priests in the
Amun-temple at Thebes, according to his own inscriptions.
From even relatively late
in European history an example may illustrate such custom. The Danish
nobleman, Otto Brahe, became on the 14th of December 1546, the father of
two sons, - twins. One of the babies died somewhat early, suddenly, we
do not know how - but the other, the later so famous astronomer Tycho
Brahe, was in his first year literally snatch from his parents and
entrusted with a couple of foster parents connected to the kings court,
and by them the "chosen one" was now brought up and highly educated (when
11 years of age, he graduated as student in Law, Latin, Hebrew, and
The foster father was a
commander of a castle and later an admiral, a close friend of Danish King
Frederik II (who with many noblemen were members of initiation cults), and
he was an elder brother to Otto Brahe. Later, in his observatory and
laboratory on his island of Hven, Tycho Brahe founded and practiced for 21
years the principles of empirical science which have revolutionized the modern world ever since.
The special or strange
case of the lost brother had still significance that Tycho Brahe wrote a
Latin ode to his dead twin and it was added in his first book in 1572-1573
which was about his famous discovery of a supernova. In the last part of the
same book the "chosen one" (Tycho Brahe) tells in a Latin poem about a
mystery play performed in a forest in Scania where he was directly ordered
to work more with the astronomy than the alchemy. After Tycho Brahe, Sir
Francis Bacon in England took up - in his book "Novum Organum" in 1620 - and
most brilliantly disseminated empirical science, this indispensable method
for all exact-scientific progress.
Problems with the Historical View
In short - Senmut fulfilled all requirements for being selected as a
substituting victim: he was of royal blood (but given foster
parents employed at the court), he became the king's
substitute, and thus he was also "suitable to" becoming a victim in a ritual
fratricide instigated by his royal step-brother.
Senmut had sought
for protection by his appointment of himself
as a herald for the king - there was always given death penalty for
killing such a herald - which made the execution of him as substituting
victim to be changed to an
effective, symbolical execution. Even this softer way of hitting him
should prove to be extremely destructive.
Thus, for many thousand years in the Middle East and Europe it was the
next-in-command, i.e. the king's substitute, who often was subject to
execution or fake executions - probably in many scary cases. One report
from 17th century England concerning one of this country's most
prominent people (the Francis Bacon case) has fragmentally
Like the Senmut (Moses) position in Egypt, it is obvious that people in
corresponding positions as "the king's substitute" were extremely
vulnerable, especially if they themselves were of royal blood.
Behind all this there existed the very wide-spread ancient tradition for
performing the contents of myths about the deeds of the gods, or in other actions for copying such
patterns. However, today such mythical behaviour by historical persons are
often not considered historically true, and then the material will be
classified as myths or an early sort of fiction. Thus, most unfortunate for research.
Some of the pairs of historical personalities shown with "parallel lives" - as
described by Plutarch:
Demosthenes, 384-323BC & Cicero, 106-43BC, - Alexander the Great, 356–323BC &
Julius Caesar, 100-44BC.
Parallel lives or reincarnation? - Moses showing the same pattern as Sir Francis Bacon?
Even today many examples can
demonstrate that certain traces of forgotten or neglected ancient
traditions may still exist in later history and all the way up till
modern times. It can be extremely surprising to 're-discover' the connected ideas behind this part of the
early cultural history.
Many events and features of ancient Egypt
and the remaining ancient world may appear so strange in our view today that as they could have arisen from another planet; and yet it is
not long ago that they were better perceived with recognizing
For example, the principle in the way of thinking behind the idea of a
"substituting victim" is recognizable as a plainer disguise in the 18th
century poem by Johan Herman Wessel about the court's "executing the baker instead
of the blacksmith". Even the ritual behind when letting a brother eliminate
another brother may be traceable during the 16th and 17th century; - as
will be mentioned.
Traditions of mystery plays of ancient religions and other rites
survived because their cultic forms - in which they in particular were
known in ancient
Egypt and Babylonia - appear later, handed down, in Roman and Greek versions.
In Europe these features can also be traced along different lines
through out to the renaissance within both the often closed cults or
brotherhoods and more secular activities.
In other words, knowledge to this exact part of history is among the
most important qualifications in the understanding of such features in
later times as well as our own time.
As late as in 17th century England an offshoot of the traditional substituting victim and
fake execution can be seen: a real historic event, in which the fate and personality of a famous main person in a enigmatic way appears as an
incredible parallel to Moses.
The circumstances are almost as by Plutarch's 2,000 year-old work about
"parallel lives" (Plutarch: "Lives, VII, Loeb Classical Library, 1919) -
in which for instance important details of the two conquerors, Alexander
the Great and Caesar are compared in many abilities, features, events
etc. (an extra detail, but not mentioned by Plutarch (45–120 AD), is
that the both were born around 20th July). He also wrote about 23 such
pairs, for instance, on the famous orators, Demosthenes and Cicero to
be compared by a long list of parallel points of their lives and deeds.
A.D.) was a Delphic priest, a cultic initiated, and a leading Platonist.
In his writings he shows also being both a historian and a gifted biographer.
The parallel recounting of the stories of persons whose lives had many striking
similarities (thus leading to comparison and contrast) is a clever method,
although later hardly in use.
His survived texts on
parallel lives do not mention relations to reincarnation but at other places he
shows his knowledge.
The idea of parallel
lives is presented with great understanding very interesting and detailed in
Krzysztof Kieslowski’s movie from 1991: "The Double Life of Véronique". It is in
1968-1990 about two women being born on the same day in different cities and
have a mysterious connection. They do not know each other and yet they share
experiences of the exactly the same kind and a mysterious and emotional bond
that transcends language and geography.
Elizabeth I and her favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester - ca. 1575,
- miniatures by Nicholas Hilliard.
Born in Secrecy, Unofficial Son of the Queen
It should here be emphasized that all the following text is based on exact
facts, and from their connection explanatory perspectives appear together with
features to further research.
At an early stage,
Francis Bacon (1561-1625) later known as Lord Verulam, is mentioned to have been
born in secrecy and unofficially as the son of Queen Elizabeth I and her "morganatic"
husband (married by priest but without publicly) by a secret ceremony January
21, 1561 - i.e. just prior to Francis Bacon's birth - in Lord Pembroke's house.
The person in question was the Earl of Leicester, Robert Dudley, better known as
Thus it was carried
through with important responsibility so that Francis could be born as a
legitimate child of married parents. One day later, the birth of Francis Bacon
took place in secrecy at the York House, the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Sir
Nicholas Bacon's residence near The Strand, in London. .
Cf. also the writer and
researcher Peter Dawkins' book: "Arcadia. The Life and Times of Francis Bacon"
(Stratford-upon-Avon, 1988, p.71) - and: Amelie Deventer von Kunów: "Francis
Bacon, Last of the Tudors", 1924, investigation studies (125 pages) - and: Diana
Price: "Shakespeare's Unorthodox Biography" (Westport, CT, Greenwood Press,
2001). All of them are pointing out the historical evidence for the marriage of
Queen Queen Elizabeth I & Robert Dudley (Earl of Leicester) and the secret birth
of their child, Francis Bacon.
According to the same
unofficial tradition Francis was adopted by Anne Bacon, the queen's
Lady-in-Waiting and personal friend, and Anne Bacon's husband, Sir Nicholas
Bacon, the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal. The birth took place in secrecy so
that she could continue her role as "the Virgin Queen". It is known that each
year for the rest of her life doctors were to assert this condition - and that
the state of Virginia in America was named after her. (Thus, a designation as
‘Virginia' cigarettes is due to the showcase of Elizabeth's ‘virginity').
Former English Catholics
were to be pacified with this Virgin Mary feature - a symbolism also to some
degree corresponding to the Isis role of Egyptian queens.
Today, no official firm
evidences of the motherhood of Elizabeth or possibly her morganatic marriage
appear to be known at all. She would have done everything to destroy them, had
they still existed.
Nevertheless, the Queen's
friendship with Dudley lasted for over 30 years, until his death the popular
tradition about her marriage and children (she seems to have got one more son
later in the same year of 1561, his name is Arthur Dudley and several documents
show that he later escaped to safety in Spain) - continued persistently up till
present times, despite the fact that there seems not any longer some material to
found consistency on. .
However, Pierre Ambroise,
establishing the first biography of Francis Bacon, in 1631, writes:
"... And he saw himself
destined to one day hold in his hands the helm of the Kingdom. ..." - Ambroise
adds that Francis was: .
"... born in the purple
... (and) brought up in the expectation of a great career. ..." . This is
another way of saying that he was of royal birth and an heir to the throne.
Purple at this time was often a colour reserved for royalty.
Facing the other
acknowledged facts about the Queen and about Francis Bacon, the traditions may
indicate interesting coherences despite of a possible scarcity of some heavy
evidences. Thus, this quaint glancing is presented because of the unusual
cultural perspective in connection with the Moses narratives. Even without
including the queen a number of specific acknowledged relations there seemed to
be obvious parallels between Moses and Francis Bacon.
According to the same unofficial tradition Francis was adopted by Anne
Bacon, the queen's Lady-in-Waiting and personal friend, and Anne Bacon's
husband, Sir Nicholas Bacon, the Lord Keeper of the Great Seal. The
birth took place in secrecy so that she could continue her role as "the
Virgin Queen"; it is known that each year for the rest of her life
doctors were to assert this condition - and that the state of Virginia
in America was named after her. (Consequently, 'Virginia cigarettes' as
a designation is thus due to the showcase of Elizabeth's "virginity").
Former English Catholics were to be pacified with this Virgin Mary
feature - a symbolism also to some degree corresponding to the Isis role
of Egyptian queens.
Today no official, firm evidences of the motherhood of Elizabeth or possibly her morganatic marriage appear to be known at all; she would
have done everything to destroy them, had they existed. Nevertheless the
popular tradition about her marriage and children continued persistently
up till present times, despite the fact that there seems not any longer
to be some material to found consistency on.

specific, acknowledged relations seem to be obvious parallels between
Moses and Francis Bacon.
Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), depicted in one of his famous books on learning
Specific Features Precisely as by Moses
history numerous kings have been known for having had many children born
out of wedlock. This feature is often designated as "the privilege of
the king". And why should not Elizabeth I, the absolute monarch, in
exactly the same way have made use of this (although more discreetly) -
she, who was the daughter of Henry VIII, who is so well known for his
numerous escapades during his many marriages and in between?
It was the opinion of many that she had yet another son, Robert Devereux
of Essex, Francis' half brother. She continued her ruling without having
the sons appear in public with the right (royal) identity, although
Francis rose to some of the highest posts in the country. Most of this
is exactly the same as in Moses' youth with his real mother being the
kings daughter (e.g. according to certain Rabbinical Writings and some
authors in antiquity), i.e. Queen Hatshepsut, who became her country's
first female ruler; so about also Francis Bacon can be pointed out, for
His mother was the country's first female ruler, and as a young
man Francis Bacon commenced a stay abroad in a top position within
diplomacy and foreign affairs, and he was also trained in legal affairs
and science. All this was similar to what Rabbinical Writings mention
about the young Moses. Francis was, also like Moses, a prominent
legislator, they both focused on an advanced social legislation. And,
like Moses, the history of Francis lacks quite a number of years.
- Corresponding to what ancient writers' mention about Moses, Francis
Bacon was on the whole a universal genius. He invented an alphabet - as
ancient texts say about Moses/Senmut - and a secret writing code, a
digit system called "biliteral".
- Francis was an important philosopher - just as Moses was, according to
the writers in antiquity - who influenced the new order of the world
which he described as he was also a great scientist with his treatise on
empiric science, which created a revolution and substituted the old
world picture and its tradition of Aristotle.
- Helped by learned Jews
in his commission Francis Bacon was responsible for the most eminent English
translation of the Moses texts and the rest of the Bible, in all later known
as the famous "King James' Bible". He was the co-founder of several
initiation lodges in England. Such lodges have been found in all times -
already Moses had made initiations rituals for the religious ceremonies. For
more than 300 years quite a number of scholars have believed that Sir
Francis Bacon is synonymous with Shakespeare - a well-known suggestion among
many - and whose texts, often in a form like archetypical analogies, are the
most wide spread in the world except for the Bible and the Quran.
- Also he was involved in a "royal murder of his brother", to the
effect that he was forced to participate in convicting Robert Devereux,
his half-brother, to be "sacrificed" based on "ridiculous" accusations.
So in his summing up in court Francis had reasons for his referring to
Cain as an example. The execution took place - typically for this kind
of ritualized process - close to the time of vernal equinox (i.e.
normally the time of Easter, originally founded by Moses).
- As unusual as Senmut (Moses) on his high posts, Francis Bacon in his
major positions remained unmarried till the age of 40 when being the
Lord Chancellor and the king's substitute (viceroy) he married a 14-year
old girl. Likewise what Senmut did when being a ca. 40-year-old Grand
Vizier - but opposite in his case Bacon made no
claim to the throne.
- By chance he had other opportunities, which he made use of, and he was
wise enough to realize that terrible conflicts would otherwise have
arisen at that time in England upon the death of Queen Elizabeth. But
also parallel with Senmut/Moses, he became the substitute and viceroy of
the new king, King James I (Jacob).
Francis Bacon's 60 year birthday was celebrated at the Freemasons'
banquet, and one of his lodge brothers, the poet Ben Johnson, read
his cultic (praising) poem dedicated to Bacon. Shortly after this,
however, again close to vernal equinox, the highest government
authorities issued "ridiculous" accusations against Francis Bacon, and
he had to accept the role as a victim - in reality a substituting victim
- for King James.
His execution was recommended but, in stead, his official identity as
viceroy was "executed", and he was fined to pay a minor amount of money,
which was never collected. This also confirms that this was only a
question of "ridiculous accusations", a show-process.
But from now on he was in disgrace; and five years later - also close to
vernal equinox - he was the victim of new simulated attacks, after which
he is mentioned as dead. According to one tradition he disappeared -
again like Moses - probably to a secret foreign exile, and this time
covered up by having been declared officially dead of pneumonia on April
9th, 1626 caused from his frequent, although well-experienced,
scientific experiments with freezing chickens (by stuffing with ice) to
produce preserved food articles - i.e. not a likely cause of death.
Now only a
missing narrative could seem to be one about Francis Bacon as infant
when - likewise Moses - having been set off in a small vessel, now on
River Thames, and then taken up at the Castle of Tower by the King's
daughter, the Virgin Queen, i.e. Elizabeth I, who again according to an
unofficial tradition belonged to a secret order. In such case (which
temporary is theory only and without more background) the time would be
the spring of 1561, when a ritual act with the royal baby would have
taken place, although in secrecy.
Bacon's seal and
coat-of-arms show a royal hunting animal - a wild boar - "Adam's Totem";
in ancient Babylon the wild boar was one name of the Great Bear
He never lived to see the result of his magnificent scientific work -
and shortly after his claimed death in 1625, the English poet Abraham
Cowley mentions him as "Moses outside the Promised Land".
The actor Shakespeare's name was used as a pseudonym for the author
of the Shakespearean texts - apparently written by
Sir Francis Bacon.
The Pseudonym Shakespeare
Many indications exist showing that Shakespeare, the actor
apparently unable himself to write, was paid to lend his name as an
assumed name to a high-ranking nobility person. It has been tried to
identify this person in question among many learned and high-ranking
noblemen, for instance that it was the pen name of the Earl of Oxford -
but often the real man behind Shakespeare is assumed to be the English
philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon.
Bacon has visited all the most important foreign places in many different countries
mentioned in Shakespeare's texts. Numerous books have been written about
their similarities. All legal statements in Shakespeare's texts were
areas in which Bacon with his law studies was a specialist, as he was in
the historical field too. Thus a number of historical theatre plays about
English kings have been written in the name of Shakespeare - and the
kings whom there were not written plays about here, were the kings whom Bacon in his own
name wrote plays on, in this way making the list complete.
In numerous places in
many works written by both Francis Bacon and in the name of
Shakespeare, there is sneaked in - often as codes - the Francis Bacon's secret signature,
i.e. "Francis T." or "Fr. Tudor" (his royal family name)
or other messages from this author - the same
principle as used by Senmut/Moses.
The included form of
information in the Shakespeare texts was known as a normal procedure of
the living tradition from ancient Egypt and later with the Greeks and
As a result of the
dissemination of the art of printing, the form of code could also be found
in the typography of the texts by Shakespeare. In these, certain names or
messages have been created by a systematic use of "uneven" printing
composition types - a method which specially was developed by Danish pioneer
scientist and astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601) in his own workshop for
printing books, on his residential island of Hven. Such peculiar
typographical features were some time after seen also in many first editions
of the texts of Shakespeare.
However, this were often deleted in later editions, as it also happened in
the case of Tycho Brahe, probably because non-initiated laymen assumed them
to be "printing errors", which were then "corrected".
Tycho Brahe, from whom
Francis Bacon must have got much inspiration regarding taking empirical
scientific research into use, appears also as a role model for the main
character Prospero in Shakespeare's play "The Tempest" - a nobleman who is a
magician and lives on his island in exile with his daughter Miranda: The
nobleman Tycho Brahe, alchemist and astrologer, on his island, later also lived
in exile and had a daughter with the name Marianne. Prospero became, just as
Tycho Brahe, a victim of conspiracy, and there are many other similarities in
So many circumstances
seem to indicate strongly that Francis Bacon, the not officially recognized
royal successor, also worked under other names, in particular the name
Back to the starting
point, - it is not mainly on the surface but in the many existing specific
details beneath the over-all life pattern where we could look for parallel
similarities in significant principles and features which the two historical
personalities, Moses and Francis Bacon, could have in common.
Through thousands of
years several traditions at many places in the world it is maintained that from
the karma being attached with the reincarnation the people are carrying their
unresolved patterns from life to life - and thus these people can in principle
repeat some of their former features like parallelisms. Might Plutarch's now
2,000 year-old idea concerning "parallel lives" be correct after all or at least
to some extend?
According to the ancient
Rabbinical Writings, the not officially recognized royal heir, Moses, was
operating also under other names (though they also belonged to him), thus in
particular the name Senmut, Egyptian for the 'mother's brother'. It was exactly
a royal title likewise his mother, Queen Hatshepsut, had additional names or
royal titles already as crown princess. This was especially her extra name: the
"king's sister" - the king was her father and co-regent - in full correspondence
with the Bible‘s information (Exodus, 6:20) that Moses' mother was designated
"the father's sister" - (cf. excerpts of Ove von Spaeth's documentation: "The
Disappeared Traces - Rediscovered").
So that Francis Bacon was
of royal family has rarely been recognized in later times and his
true descent is continuously hidden by his posthumous reputation - and
in addition also the name he left behind was detained - all this can
also be seen as another Senmut/Moses parallel.
reincarnation studies the experience of cyclic repetitions of previous living
conditions is a well-known phenomenon - and may include interesting forms of
pattern repetitions which also hold important material for future researchers.

Concerning Merete Gundersen's book,
'Spiritual Man', IV, 2006 - introduction:
The Bank of Metaphysical Knowledge
By OVE VON SPAETH
Ove von Spaeth's introduction to Merete Gundersen's book, "Spiritual
Development of Consciousness
The metaphysical world picture with its base for expanding our concept and
recognition appears as an underestimated factor in modern science. This is
often due to the fact that only very little information and knowledge are
widely disseminated concerning metaphysical subjects at a higher level than
the connection with e.g. crystal therapy, meditation, visualizing, and
mental strength. Therefore, we very much welcome Merete Gundersen's books on
In the present volume IV
the author takes a further step and comprises major complex coherences of
the human evolution. This will contribute to open for more realistic
observation on which way metaphysical research will be of the special
importance to future science.
When nuclear particles are "condensing" in a special way and reach a basic
state of activity, modern science calls them Bose-Einstein Condensates. They
are able to be in two places at the same time. This is basic knowledge and
Likewise it is suggested that human consciousness is, and is able to be, in two places at one and the
same time, i.e. that as human beings we can develop our SIQ at a neutron
level and in this way our consciousness can be in two maybe many places at
one and the same time.
The books deal with the
spiritual and mental development for instance at a nuclear level - also
including the brain with its considerable potential for development -
expanded in the spiritual dimension. And each volume of the book-series
describes from new angles the "SIQ - the Spiritual Intelligence", the new

This book by Merete
Gundersen: "Spirituel Man", Vol. IV, is conveyed to the readers with a
brilliant, special expansion - an extra step to insight. Like in the other
books of her series it concerns a visionary knowledge connecting the
advanced, psycho-spiritual field.
A perception or an experience is not more or less true because a large
number of persons believe in it, and around the world there are different
views on the subject reincarnation.
In search of an overview among the
many interpretations of the idea of reincarnation, the sources should be
critical evaluated; many sources advocate reincarnation as being a fact, and
in many other sources a demythologization seems to be desired.
Neutral narratives regarding the reality of
reincarnation are rare. In view of this, a considerable repression
can be found in the history of this important element of the past; but for
more than one fourth of the of the 2,000-year history of western religions, this element,
reincarnation, also belonged to
branches of the Christian Church.
Most of this world's
religions and religious denominations are based on a conviction of a
continuation after death. It has been said that without that perception we
would have no pyramids, no works by Dante or Homer, no Hamlet, etc. The
general idea behind the doctrine of reincarnation (re 'again', in
'in', and karne 'flesh') is that after death the soul will again let
itself be borne in a physical ("mortal") body.
In India the Hindu religion and related religious denominations understand death as a
transition period. Tibetan monks offer a special aid to dying people by
bringing the person better through this phase. - Many times the spiritual
philosopher Rudolf Steiner maintained that between each life the soul - the
eternal soul never dying away - stayed between or on the stars in the
universe. This theme was also
worshipped in ancient Egypt and has left special traces, for instance within
the cultic architecture.
To many people the subject of reincarnation can appear strange so that it is
not ascribed sufficient historical significance. But in order to confront
the history of religion in a realistic way it has to be understood that it
concerns quite another - and at times very widespread - picture of the
world. Circumstances and considerations of reincarnation, existing also
inside the Christian religion, became in later times by loss of history
knowledge given meaningless interpretations.
knowledge from an early mystery cultic superstructure of Moses' religion can still be traced in the Bible - coherent to a degree not
previously possible to prove. This included a knowledge comprising the
learning of 'afterlife' and new life - the reincarnation. Ideas of
reincarnation can be traced in all historic civilizations at all times.
The oldest Christian Church or
congregation was founded on the basis of ancient Christian groups in the
first century AD. From the beginning special branches were very influenced
by initiation cults and other Middle East religious ideas, many especially
A comprehensive group was called the Gnostics - the name stems
from Greek gnosis, i.e. 'recognition'. A large part of these united with
many other Christian groups were also believers in reincarnation, and after
the 3rd and 4th century they were persecuted by the Church.
The basic idea in reincarnation is that mortal death is not the same as
total death - the human potential loses a 'shelter', but has the possibility
to find another one. To get a new body is among Indian Yogis compared with
simply "changing coat". A universal track without ending and with station
after station - "life is existence is eternal".
The perceptions of
reincarnation are very different. Through times many who accepted the idea,
have understood a variety of ideas subjectively - e.g. the kind of
reincarnation, time distances between re-birth etc. - as a firm pattern
without that individual differences were valid for everybody! A broad
overview will reveal that this does not seem to happen according to firm
rules, but rather according to certain, superior principles.
reincarnation has been subject to a number of different traditions and
descriptions. The differences stem from popular imaginations about
reincarnation and also from particular interpretations, e.g. with cultic
Hindus and Jains learn that the row of incarnations can get an ending,
and that a complete sequence of such a long cycle of lives, deaths, and
re-births may last for 8.4 million years. The cycle can be interrupted if
the person in question can reach the same state of recognition and purity
"as the 24 great gurus".
By these religions as
well as in traditional Buddhist
cosmology, the lives of the individual can be in any of a large number of states of being,
including those of humans, any kind of animal, and several types of
supernatural being. The type of rebirth that arises at the end of one life
is conditioned by the karmas (actions of body, speech and mind) of the
previous life; good karmas can yield a happier rebirth, bad karmas may
produce one which is more unhappy.
between traditional oriental ideas about reincarnation and also the perceptions
introduced by the present western world - now interpreted in the light of
western evolutionary optimism, e.g. the row of lives as a school by which the
person becomes more and more capable, life after life.
The entire eternal universe is cyclical, and so are the lives; the same
tings can happen again and again, however, they can also eventually "mutate"
into new forms and levels - cyclically coiling.
In the much respected
work of wisdom from Egyptian antiquity, "Corpus Hermeticum", its Treaty 11:2
seems to approach certain conditions of the Einstein relativity theory and
thoughts, which for instance are expressing that basically the universe has
However, our memory of
time is contributing to the creation of a "mathematical" idolizing of an
idea or an imagination of time.
We perceive the factor of
time by the sequences of the phenomena - however, concerning "life after
life" normally the remembrance of earlier links in a chain seems oblivious.
In the ancient Egyptian belief Osiris was god-king in the Afterworld and
lead himself be re-born.
To the ancient Egyptians the creation and the following cycles of life and
death (the afterlife) were always in the focus. In accordance with this, it
was the religious aim to attend to the major and minor natural cycles of
which the world consists in an interaction between concealed, potential, and
visible, manifested being.
Therefore, the perception
of the interplay between these mechanisms and structures - in the world, in
life, in cosmos - very early was considered being of greatest importance.
In the living universe
the spiritual dimensions which in ancient Egypt were perceived as crossing
through the universe - may be hard to understand on the present basis of
another perception of the world, because western culture in certain ways has
evolved to become history's first prevailing "non-religious" civilization.
The Japanese reformative Buddhist monk, Nichiren Daishonin, 1222-1282, by
whom a particular form of this philosophy was developed, wrote: "… Life is
indeed an elusive reality that transcends both the words and concepts of
existence and non-existence. It is neither existence nor non-existence, yet
exhibits the qualities of both. …"
One of his most leading
followers today, Daisaku Ikeda, president of Soka Gakkai International, has
stated - in his guest lecture in 1993, at Harvard University, Cambridge,
that "… Modern civilization has attempted to ignore death. - For many people
living today, death is the mere absence of life; it is blankness; it is
void. - But now we finally seem to beginning to understand ... that death, together
with life, is necessary for the formation of a larger, more essential whole.
This greater whole reflects the deeper continuity of life and death … A
central challenge for the coming century will be to establish a culture
based on an understanding of the relationship of life and death and of
life's essential eternity …" (Daisaku Ikeda: "A New Humanism", New York and
Tokyo 1996, pp. 152-153).
Originally the prince Siddhartha Gautama, 563-483 BC, becoming the
historical Buddha, was educated
by traditional high-level spiritual Hindu knowledge of the Veda- and
Vedanta-scriptures, and by one of his gurus, Mahavira, the founder of Jainism
learning about karma and reincarnation. Buddha himself, after great
recognitions, surpassed the many levels. When proclaiming the Lotus Sutra he was
stating that the purpose of existence, the eternal cycles of life and
death, is "to be happy and ease".
Shortly after, many of
the Gnostics and later Christian Gnostics when supporting the idea of reincarnation
seem to have missed just that. In spite of having marvellous clear thoughts
about many aspects of life, death, world, and cosmos many of the Gnostics maintained
often a limiting and pessimistic view on these essential factors.
Quite early, Buddhist
missionary monks also operated in Syria (and 'Lebanon') and made a long
lasting impression, here even maintained by the Druzes 1,200 years later -
however, from the beginning the Buddhists had influenced the Gnostic groups
and then the Christians.
Today, many Buddhist
practitioners of certain developed branches of philosophical learning are
interested in modern theories of quantum physics, especially concerning the
interplay and interaction between a person (the observer) and the (focused)
universe itself. When improving the person's spiritual and ethical level and
relating to the universe, this action aims at an improving effect on the
universe - as cause and effect work both ways. The person will be more and
more positively in command also concerning his individual karma and
Conditions of the western world's contemporary so-called mass culture may
impede an evolution of the free personality and non-conformist ideas. To a
wide extent, the inner knowledge of religions builds also on language and
writing as basic tools in a civilization and is simultaneously among the
most important components in the human awareness in expression - a
starting-point for the free individual.
At the beginning of our new millennium, the western world's modern
man with a spiritual provincialism ("only this life, only this place/plan
exists") has in many respects never been closer to having better conditions
and possibilities - by maturing contact with the universe and
re-establishment of the importance of spiritual dimensions - for
transforming to be able to obtain insight in life, death, existence, etc.,
and in this way understand humanity and universe as a great whole of mutual

The concept of reincarnation or rebirth was often seen in connection with the
