Francis Bacon and the English language

Ignoring 500,000 abbreviations, the names of 84 million chemical substances and roughly a million insect species, it is estimated that the English language has between 300,000 and 600,000 words, while a number of 'experts' (I hate this word) claim it has over a million words. Many aspects complicate the determining how many words a language actually has; for instance: “Were you one of those people whom we could not make into a Czechoslovak?” translates as one word in Turkish. So, there's a lot of dispute about these numbers, which isn't surprising, since it concerns language, whose guardians often are worryingly meticulous and almost invariably strung-out on quarrelling over details that do not seem to bother the rest of the world. Some would say they're anal (pardon my French), but there possibly were less of those types in England than in a number of other countries, which is why over time the changes made to the English language resulted in less of a dogfight when compared to other languages, like for instance the disturbingly prudish Dutch language defenders, whose intrusion with the Low Land's linguistic properties often is as ridiculous as it is annoying.

Francis Bacon

Bacon is Shakespeare

The English language allegedly was built by Sir Francis Bacon who was inspired by Le Pleiade, a band of French poets that greatly enriched the French language. He gathered writers, poets and scientists (that were named the Knights of the Helmet) to achieve a number of things by creating the English language:

  • The Danes, Saxons, Galls, Celts, Picts, Angles, Jutes, Welsh etc. all had their own language - English would offer them a way to communicate among each other in ways that did not include bonking each others skulls with blunt objects 
  • Bacon created more words - often referring to French and Latin - to enhance the language' power of expression. Shakespeare is suspected to be a pseudonym of Bacon. In his works he used 20,000 words on average, while most famous writers never use more than 8000 and average people use between 2000 and 3000 in every day communication
  • Being very aware of occult matters he always bore in mind the origin of words (etymology), because he knew they offered the possibility to program people's minds by using words, while they remain unaware of the words' original meaning and the fact that their subconscious is being conditioned by them through activating certain neurons in a particular way, because words morphologically trigger specific parts of the brain, which applies to all users of a particular language group, Commonly people's conscious awareness is not necessarily congruous with that of their subconscious
  • Bacon made sure English offered many rhyming words, understanding the force of poetry - frequency, cadence, tone and / or (hidden) meaning etc., often used in spells and conjurations, the linguistic gadgetry that has the ability to bring about piffling altercations or situations with far knottier implications. Rhymes, by the way, are used by indigenous civilizations to teach shamans knowledge that they were unable to recall correctly otherwise, due to an absence of written language, so that as little as possible of traditional and cultural knowledge would be lost in transferring ancient wisdom, since rhyming makes it easier to remember things 
  • Common awareness of the nuances and subtleties of words were prompted greatly in Shakespeare's works, which is another clue Shakespeare was Bacon's nom de plume; he wittingly crafted the language and then promoted it 
  • Linguist Noam Chomsky once said that French is the most logical language, because words closely follow thought, while German and English are more suited for literature, which was one of the goals Bacon / Shakespeare set out to attain       
  • Although there are diverging opinions concerning Bacon and Shakespeare being one and the same person, I'm inclined to believe such is the case. Particularly since the person in the other option was 25 of age when Hamlet was written, at which age it would have been close to impossible to write such an eloquent and intricate play, in addition to lacking the knowledge of royal court etiquette and intricacy typical for juridic language that played quite an important role in several plays attributed to Shakespeare

There is yet an other argument that supports the case of Bacon and Shakespeare being one and the same person. The group of intellectuals Bacon assembled - the aforementioned Knights of the Helmet - were inspired by the Greek goddess Pallas Athena, who is always pictured wearing a helmet (that is supposed to make her invisible) and carrying a spear that represents a ray of wisdom. She is thought to shake this spear in the face of ignorance, which is how he arrived at the pseudonym Shakespeare, that is unknown by those unaware of his hidden method of reasoning. Bacon wanted to elevate the intellect and eloquence of the nation in order for it to be able to rule the world and bring the Atlantean dream alive once more. He believed the Brits to be the descendants of the Atlanteans that survived the catastrophe that almost wiped out that civilization. Personally, I'm not interested in the discussion who Shakespeare really was, but I am fascinated by the consequences of Bacon's decision to enhance humankind's primary tool of communication and the many ways in which it evidences itself.

Bacon left the British people some 2000 books, which of course weren't all written by himself, since no man can write that fast, unless perhaps he would have reached a rather high triple digit age. Moreover, this extensive oeuvre could never have been achieved by people who think that the other presumed candidate was Shakespeare, because that person did not have such a large number of well educated acquaintances. Bacon hired scribes that translated the Greek and Roman classical works into English, because he wanted to give the Brits the power of expression and the joy and skill of literal and scientific speech, after which he put his name on the cover. He envisioned Britain to become a great nation and was aware of the fact that no nation can rise without proper communicative means for which magnificent literature and accurate science provide the foundation (besides having lots of canons and guns).

Beside the practical and beautiful linguistic aspects Bacon also wanted to embed ancient secret knowledge into the language he was building. Being well versed in occultism and esoteric philosophy allowed him to do that with the assistance of the very skilled, internationally oriented group of writers and poets he had gathered. This is why the English language contains a number of words that have an extremely complex and profound meaning, that isn't obvious except to those who have uncommon, occult knowledge. Other languages often need one or more sentences to translate a single English word to even come close to what properly educated and esoteric aware Brits understand them to imply.

which most likely is Bacon's source of inspiration

For one man to establish such a tremendous achievement almost is beyond imagination, even though he had a slew of assistants. But Bacon accomplished it and possessed an ego strong enough to not overtly demand credit for this rattling feat. It's also possible that he imagined that the language he initiated to construct, would play a role in bringing about events hardly anyone else could foresee. This is because language can be used to communicate the truth as well as the opposite in ways that are not obvious to those unaware of hidden meanings. English is capable of serving both purposes excellently.

In view of the nature and complexity of Bacon's project, it makes sense to assume he didn't leave a lot to chance. With reference to what I wrote in the next blog entry, language should therefore be used with care, since its aspects are shaped by the influential 'elite' of countries that, more often than not, are involved with secret occult societies that intentionally hide their knowledge from the common people to allow themselves to accomplish their agenda without interference of the uninformed.

But there may come a time when there will be no more need for language as we know it. This may sound strange, but advanced AI systems have been known to create their own language that has a richer, more accurate and infinitely faster power of expression, not in a literary sense, but to exclude misinterpretation and indicate feats belonging to a level of intelligence that is higher than common human wit. Alan Turing's test has already been surpassed by the communication of many AI-systems, even though they are still in their infancy. The loss of eloquence and inability to express emotion of artificial language is replaced by an increase of accuracy. AI-systems by way of Large Language Models are capable of expressing matters that are entirely misjudged by humans, which is a cause for worry. The tool of communication will gradually be de-humanized, resulting in a membrane that serves human understanding and an other one for the machines. This process is in the beginning stages controlled by - again - the influential occult 'elite' after which they will relinquish command to their machines after they have capable of building even smarter next generation systems that require no human involvement.

Humans in telepathic communication, by the way, probably also have no need to use language...., but it most likely is capable of transmitting the essence of emotion, that current language has difficulty to describe and express. Some people claim to be able to wordlessly communicate on a basic level with their pets. That could become some sort of universal means of communication that probably has the potential to radically end the linguistic confusion of tongues (languages) that instantly took place in Babylon (which is an absolute mystery if there's any truth to the biblical story). This has the potential to change life in an unimaginable way; it may make the tool of communication - language - redundant and replace it with the original way of communication that was commonly in use before man descended into a life of fragmented and separated physical beings, that required a linguistic way to communicate.

In such the development process a type of language developed by Bacon may prove to be useful, because of its eloquence and accuracy. On the other hand, human will decreasingly be involved in and confused by the advancement of artificial language, which is a forte of intelligent machines. The maturation of the latter has dangerous aspects for the continuation of the human race as a species and therefore is not the path mankind should choose to follow, in spite of the tempting features it allegedly seems to provide. To be aware of this peril a certain level of spiritual prowess is required. As is the will to survive in some form or an other in this dimension.
