I must frankly say that, as a 'Baconian' (believing that Shakespeare and Bacon are one), nothing good can comes out the mechanical art of 'cinema', satanic from its first principles, until its use by tyrants to rape human's mind and convince him to kiss the Death.
If you would split the head of one of those modern stupid warriors-for-gas who kill their opponents from far away, no doubt that motion pictures would flow out.
So it is not a good argument for any kind of Science to be supported by the Theater, which is just mathematics and fantasy.
R. Emmerich last movie, illustrating the theory that Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, was the author of 'Hamlet', 'Pericles', 'Twelfth Night', and such great fables about Christian Revelation, is the best argument for Stratfordian to say that they are right to believe in the brave 'Bard' from Warwickshire autorship.
- Therefore this Earl of Oxford simply died too early to be the author of many books.
But let's get rid of cinema and authorship problems to quote six links between Bacon's and Shakespeare's arts and beliefs, letting on one side the fact that they were both believing in God and Satan, which was rather common at this time.
- Both F. Bacon and Shakespeare do regard old Christian Theology of the Middle Age and Clercks as a long useless Sermon, full of mathematics and ropes of human right. F. Bacon is praising French François Rabelais Humorist for same demonstration.
Two stupid clercks don't stop Romeo in his stupid and assassine 'love'. F. Bacon write in his 'Essays' that there is no great Person in History who was under feelings effects. Foolish Ophelia is victim of her feelings too; and Shakespeare does not hide that Ophelia Christian religion is full of sex-intention and the 'bourgeois' principles of his father, everything wrapped in 'passion'.
It is not new in philosophy to explain that 'passion' is covering property of a brilliant varnish of hypocrisy, but both Bacon and Shakespeare are strongly mocking the Instinct of the Aristocrats.
- Francis Bacon was careful not to praise any kind of religious party: neither the Roman Catholic, nor the English or any other, knowing that these violent divisions were showing the Mistake of each one, and the betraying by 'supposed to be Christian people' of their God; there are no parties dividing Apostles in different churches, fighting each other, but only in Politics, due to different property or money interests.
Though this is obvious that Shakespeare does believe in the Christian God, it is impossible from his plays to say what Party he was belonging to. Shakespeare is not demonstrating in 'Thomas More' that this one was idiotic because he was a 'Roman Catholic', but just because T. More wish of a Christian Kingdom is nothing else but stupid, and prohibited by Jesus-Christ himself.
- Francis Bacon is fighting Copernicus and Galileo's mathematical hypothesis that the Earth is moving, not the sun as we can see. Detail is not art does think and explain Francis Bacon, and if mathematics is 'acurate', it is not a true science, i.e. 'based on experience'. After Aristotle, Democritus and Tycho Brahe from Denmark, Bacon's science is a experimental one, not a religious Egyptian one as Copernicus or Galileo.
Elsinore Castle in 'Hamlet' was belonging to Tycho Brahe, whose astrology is the same than Bacon's. And we can guess that 'Polonius' is nothing else than Copernicus. 'Fables of the Ancient are made of Science' says F. Bacon; and he did as Homer in 'Hamlet': he wrote a Christian story, including science.
Therefore, Bacon is aware that Copernicus revival of Egyptian astrology/theology, leads to a mirroring of Human wishes or desire in the Dome of Universe. This is in fact the better idea or religion for a technocratic tyrant's power, but not peaceful at all. And today's stupid common ideas are coming from this Looming. For example the idea that Human nations can 'save the Nature' or 'destroy it', in which the paradox of Mathematics and bad Scientists or Ingeneers using it is.
- You must be a good reader of saint John's Revelation to know as Hamlet the specific Christian Astrology, and as Shakespeare to tell the Theological story of the Epiphany of the Spirit. And Francis Bacon was main translator for King James Bible.
- As a Christian Scientist, seeing thus the devil's brand in the Human condition or physics, Bacon is nevertheless very interested by the understanding of Nature, life and its motion to death. Contrarily to the Middle Age Science, which was seeing the Devil everywhere but in the City where the Gospels reveal that it is, Bacon is trying to understand how the Orchestral/mechanical manoeuvre of the Devil works, from the first starting of assassine Time. He knows by experience this Nature better than lot's of theoricians or even poets.
- Whose Tragedian is better than Shakespeare to use animals, plants, natural elements, in their realistic as well as in their symbolic or mythologic meaning? The Phenix as satanic order's symbol for example, against the Christian Eagle?
Best Critics of Shakespeare notice that he is everything but a stylish or erotic author. And in fact this would indicate that art is for Shakespeare the goal of art, which is exactly what worst artist do, betraying here selfish desire of being loved, as kids trying to keep their mother in their mouth.
In this case, better make money as Shylock, this is more frank and powerful art than any other music or religion.
F. Bacon does think and write that hypothesis is no scientific but religious, covers reality with human language as primitive religion or ignorant clerks do. So that mathematics do not replace natural experiences and comparisons. The prism of style that Shakespeare is refusing to paint the world, and not an abstract frame, secure but wrong, lovely but stupid, the same prism is refused by F. Bacon in Physics or Metaphysics. Make god as you are, and you will make Him the smaller. The same for Science, which is -using mathematics- almost invisible at last.
- Due to religious Plato influence on Aristotle, and the middle age useless devotion to the Greek Scientist, rather than quoting materialist Aristotle Science, Bacon did prefer quote Democritus. And one can find many quotation of Democritus in Shakespeare's plays.
- One of Bacon scientific statement is the former unity of Continents, that are splitted now. And you can notice that the Scientist Prospero in Shakespeare's 'Tempest' does not think, contrarily to his daughter Miranda, that 'Brave New World' is so 'new'.
