Francis Bacon's "New Order of The Ages"

Elizabeth I (1533-1603), the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, was Queen of England from 1558 to 1603. During her reign occurred the restoration of Protestantism, the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and a remarkable flowering of prosperity and literary and musical genius.

In short: it was a fateful period when the English people truly came into being and when the form and function of the future British Empire were decided.

A major figure of the Elizabethan period was Sir Francis Bacon, Lord Verulam, and Viscount St Alban's (1561-1626), statesman, philosopher and occultist. Bacon's influence on human knowledge is profound. He is regarded as the father of the empirical method -Baconian induction- that is at the root of all moral and scientific theories constructed on the inductive method he championed. Within philosophy his method is the basis of what is commonly called British Empiricism. Bacon's influence on the intellectual development of his immediate successors was profound such that:

"the whole trend of typically English thought, not only in natural science, but also in mental, moral and political philosophy, is the logical fulfillment of Baconian principles."

Bacon was a singularly unique character whose influence in history can not be underestimated:

"The intellect of Bacon was one of the most powerful and searching ever possessed by man, and his developments of the inductive philosophy revolutionized the future thought of the human race." A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature. ed. John W. Cousins (1910).

In brief: Bacon was commonly invoked as a guiding spirit of the new scientific movement about to sweep Western Europe that is often called the Age of Enlightenment. However, there is another, hidden side to Bacon that is perhaps even more profound than the public one. This is Bacon the occultist who was leader of the Rosicrucians and the first Grand Master of modern Freemasonry. Bacon, together with John Dee (1527-1608), was a high initiate in the Ancient Mysteries and a Rosicrucian leader and so at the helm of the Secret Societies in England. Bacon was informed by his guiding spirits that the kingdom that would produce the coming "Masonic Messiah," (the "Masonic Christ" who will lead the world into a new era they called the "Ancient Order of the Ages") would be an English speaking nation but not Great Britain. Rather, it would be a great nation that would arise out of the New World colonies and Queen Elizabeth and her counselors must perforce do everything in their power to bring this nation to birth.

 

Moreover, this is what they did: Elizabeth and her counselors prepared a plan of action whereby an English speaking nation would arise from the New World colonies that would eventually take leadership of the monumental, age-old movement for World Empire based upon an "ancient hope"they called the "Ancient Order of the Ages." Thus, the Elizabethan Rosicrucian concept of the"Ancient Order of the Ages" pre-dates the "New World Order" of Adam Weishaupt's Bavarian Illuminati by several centuries. That is, Weishaupt merely modernized and codified Bacon's plan, which was itself but another bead on the thread that winds its way back to the birth of mankind.

This future role of America as the powerhouse of the massive move towards World Empire is alluded to by some occultists as the "secret destiny of America." Moreover, this ancient ambition for World Empire and this "secret destiny of America" were the main motivating principles behind the establishment of the British Empire, which reached its zenith at the end of World War I. But, reader, understand, this Elizabethan grand intrigue for global government, economy and religion was merely another formulation of the Ancient Plan for World Empire stretching far into the distant past. Well before modern attempts for world empire by men such as Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great and to the earliest times of human history. To a time when a tower was built by Noah's descendants who intended it to reach up to Heaven, allegorised in the Old Testament as the "Tower of Babel." (Gen. 11:1-11).

 

Genesis 11

1And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

4And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

6And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

 

It is the ancient dream manifest in the modern world as the Novus ordo Seclorum ... the New World Order ... the ancient dream of Secret Societies throughout the ages. It is also the guiding principles behind the apparently political and economic stratagems of the Internationalists and One Worlders' Globalist Agenda ( i.e. "Globalisation", "Global Governance" "Global Society," "Agenda 21," the "Earth Charter" etc.) to bring to an end all notions of the sovereignty of nations.

 

And just as we see here:

6And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

 

There has been an influence upon the course of human events that has been to thwart our efforts to unify and evolve as a people, as a species and create a true civilization. This influence has been the hidden hand of corruption and confusion throughout recorded history......holding us back.

 

 

The Baconian vision for the establishment of the "Ancient Order of the Ages," alluded to in his book, The New Atlantis (1626), was transmitted through the Empire of Secret Societies into the modern era but chiefly via the Lodges of Freemasonry. In his book, The New Atlantis, published after his death, the aged Bacon intimated that the newly colonised America was the"New Atlantis" and would replicate the legendary civilisation Atlantis in its grandeur and vision. He also outlined his vision of this perfect, "golden" society. However, Bacon's utopian view was not new or novel since it merely made public, although in a unique way, the ancient desire of certain occult(secret/hidden) groups for an idealised world society. That is, while Bacon did not originate the concept of the "New Atlantis," it was he who first articulated and put in print the ancient plan for World Empire to be carried out by all the secret orders. The programme set forth by Bacon has thus been the driving force behind the course of events that have shaped the modern world and made the United States of America the driving force towards establishment of the New World Order. This is why Thomas Jefferson, a man who well understand the occult influence upon human events, considered Bacon one of the three most influential men in history.

 

Bacon's pre-eminence in the scheme of things was confirmed by a modern exponent of the esoteric arts, Manly P. Hall:

 

"Lord Bacon was certainly a moving spirit in the fields of politics, science, and industry. He revolted against the institutions of higher education, insisting that scholars had picked the bones of Aristotle until nothing of value remained ...

In 1660 Thomas Sprat published his History of the Royal Society of London with ... numerous references to the debt which the [Royal] Society owed to Lord Bacon. The Utopian dream of philosophic commonwealth seemed near fulfillment ... Bacon's Utopia was published in 1627 under the title The New Atlantis [it was] a work unfinished ... The Utopian idea seems to have gained ground as the result of the explorations of [European] navigators who brought home the first accounts of the civilizations of the Western Hemisphere. It was evident that the Aztec, Maya, and Inca forms of government had strong democratic elements. They were highly socialized states, comparatively free from the tragedies which had burdened Europe for ages ...

Bacon's New Atlantis describes the adventures of [European] seaman who departed from Peru ... for China by the South Sea [whose ship] becomes windbound until its crew faced starvation. By the light of God's mercy, however, they reached a beautiful island peopled by noble Christians. After some delays the physical needs of the crew were cared for and they were told that the place was named the Island of Bensalem. Here was instituted the order or society called "Solomon's House," which Bacon describes as the noblest foundation that was ever upon the earth. It was dedicated to the study of the works and teachings of God and sometimes entitled the College of the Six Days Work. Bacon in his original text set forth many details about the wonderful research facilities and the museum of arts and skills which had been assembled in the College of the Six Days Work. In the midst of this description Lord Bacon's fable ends ...

It is interesting that Plato's description of old Atlantis was also left unfinished. It is difficult to avoid the implication that the College of the Six Days Work is a veiled account of an actual secret society- an island of learned men in a sea of ignorance. As we continue to explore the text it also becomes apparent that the Royal Society of London was dedicated to the same purposes as Solomon's House on the island of Bensalem where dwelt the "sons of peace."

In 1662, John Heydon [a fellow Rosicrucian] published an extensive and curious work called The Holy Guide . He prefaces this book with an almost verbatim reprint of Bacon's New Atlantis, but does not credit the original author. Heydon inserts direct references to the Rosicrucians at appropriate points in the original text, wishing to convey the impression that the masters of Solomon's House were Rosicrucian adepts. In the same volume Heydon describes the Rosicrucians as a divine society inhabitating the suburbs of heaven and officers of the Generalissimo of the World ... it can only be assumed that Heydon's purpose was to tie Bacon's fable directly with the Fraternity of the Rosy Cross ... many[other manuscripts also] present the concept of a secret empire of the learned -its domains extending beyond all national boundaries actually existed and were in great measure responsible for a new awakening of social consciousness. ... While some may doubt the source of this continuation of Bacon's New Atlantis there is much to indicate that it is a most significant work. It certainly amplifies and continues much of the spirit of Bacon's dream for the expansion of human knowledge ... [Bacon's] Solomon's House was the gathering place of great wits and Bacon wrote on one occasion that he rang the bell that brought the wits together. His The Instauration Magna was an effort to record all knowledge useful to mankind and dedicated the wisdom of the past to the service of the future. Bacon believed that the tripodium of learning rested firmly upon the threefold foundation of tradition, observation, and experimentation. These were certainly the labors to which the mysterious sages of [the island of] Bensalem were dedicated. [Bacon] believed that a combination of integrity and intelligence could restore the glory of kingdoms and bring grace of spirit to all useful labors making them fruitful for eternal good."

 

Similarly, because of this guidance and singular inspiration to seek and create new more enlightened horizons, and because of his intimation that the New World was the "New Atlantis," Francis Bacon is considered by some to be "the real and true founder of America." Thus, a 1910 Newfoundland stamp with his image upon it reads: "Lord Bacon: the Guiding Spirit in [the] Colonization Scheme."Bacon it is alleged, is the public figure we have come to know as William Shakespeare.
