   In recent years, many analytical studies of the 1609 Sonnets Dedication (“To the Onllie Begetter”) places strong emphasis on the “6-2-4” pattern found in the Dedication’s line arrangement, and its association with the number of letters in de Vere’s name:  “Edward” has 6 letters, “de” has 2, and “Vere” has 4.  Notice In Array 4 of the 1609 Frontispiece (see Fig. 2 above), that the “V” in “VEER” begins the letter-string in:  Row 6, Column 2, Array 4Keep in mind there is only a single intended “v” in the Frontispice plaintext.  Thus, a top-to-bottom letter-string, spelling de Vere’s surname as it was used by his father, the 16th Earl of Oxford, in addition to being spelled the same way on de Vere’s birth announcement, is remarkable in itself.  However, combined with the Row 6 plaintext placement of the “V”, and the respective number values of 2 (Column) and 4 (Array) (i.e., all three attributes or dimensions are being used:  row, column, array), a reasonable interpretation is that the “6-2-4” pattern presence is perhaps by deliberate design.  If not, and the pattern only “seems” to be one, the combination is still a remarkable coincidence.

‘Coincidence’ is  this anagram example:   “Hidden messages”  =   “He’s made designs.”

    Of the four arrays I found in the Frontispiece, Array 23 is the most noteworthy from the perspective of whether or not code-presence is real and valid.   The “E” in “EARL” is in Column 17.  Read together as a cluster, a workable and reasonable syntax is:  “Earl, 17” or “17 Earl”.  Meaning, in its context: the 17th Earl of Oxford.  Nothing short of a perfect placement.  Not to suspect intelligent design in this is more incredible than believing it is there.
   Array 5 states the Sonnets are “done (written)” by “E.O.” (Earl, or Edward, Oxford).  As well, it also can say:  “I’m done (written) by E.O.; poet’s (poet is) Shakespeare.”
  The letter-string “LAME” with the horizontal satellite support “I’m”, when put together, forms a complete declarative sentence:  “I’m lame”, or, “I am lame.”  This is the only known physical attribute of Edward de Vere that strongly differentiates him from other poets and playwrights in his circle.  Not only was de Vere wounded in a fencing bout, but one can say that, since he had to remain anonymous as hidden as a poet, this fact crippled him more than did his lame leg.  It is analogous, but not the same as (i.e., not the only known disability) as the following pairings of a famous person and her or his disability:  Milton and “blind”; Beethoven and “deaf”; Helen Keller and “blind”, “deaf” and “mute”; or the word “epilepsy” and:  Julius Caesar, Socrates, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vince; or “dyslexia” and:  Alexander Graham Bell, Hans Christian Anderson, Thomas Edison, and  Gustav Flaubert.  The list of famous and gifted people and their disabilties is lengthy.

   What was not found were any letter-strings (encryptions) for:  Sir Francis Bacon, William Shakespare of Stratford-upon-Avon, Christopher Marlowe, Edward Dyer, Fulke Greville, Rober Manners, Thomas Sackville, or any other contender for the authorship of the Shakespeare canon.One’s “degree of belief” has to kick in, here.  Either there is reasonble doubt that randomness and chance occurrence are taking place, or the definition of “random” above is the definitive, rock solid, for-sure, carved-in-stone, don’t even think about questioning what is definitely a rule:  the codes are ghosts in the Shakespeare canon:

Random:  not deliberate, without method or deliberate design, coincidence
