Welcome to this website that tells the amazing story about Francis Bacon, Shakespeare and Hermes Stella, and many other veiled mysteries.

Through films, essays, books, lectures and illustrations, you’ll discover the relevance and importance of Sir Francis Bacon’s life and work for the age into which we are entering.

Bacon gave us an initiatic method by which a Golden Age on Earth might be achieved. The method is above all imaginative, poetic and artistic as well as scientific, the aim being to create a living work of art just as Nature and the Universe is a work of art. It is also a treasure hunt, or game of hide and seek.

This website is a work in progress. As Bacon said: "Nothing is finished until all is finished."
