Bacon was one moment alchemist, the next an architect of scientific method. He was also an esotericist: one privy to secret wisdom, a member of a secret group. Exponents of this theory about Bacon believe part of his great instauration was as dramatist, and that he wrote all of Shakespeare’s plays. Was he, as Jean Overton Fuller asserted, the child of Elizabeth I and Leicester? Was he really the author of Shakespeare’s plays? Modern esotericism has a look in through the legacies of Theosophy and Rudolph Steiner. The supposed fringes of modern science seem for a moment as though they are mainstream, but there is a critical element too, a note of caution. A final section returns to the utopianism of Bacon’s the New Atlantis, with a major question for us all. Chapters include: The New Atlantis; The Lives of Francis Bacon; The Master “R”; Francis Bacon, the Seventh Ray and Music; Bacon, Theosophy and Rudolf Steiner; The Oak Island Mystery, Francis Bacon, and the New World; Codes, Coding and Synchronicity; Towards a New Harmonic Framework; Aether and Beyond; The Idea of a Golden Age; tons more.
