Solution of the Shugborough Hall Inscription

The Solution of the Shugborough Hall Inscription


Swedish version

At Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire, Great Britain, there is a stone monument built sometime between 1748 and 1763, commissioned by freemason Thomas Anson. On the monument there is an inscription, consisting of a carved sequence of letters – OUOSVAVV - , and - DM - on the line below. The code has been told to lead to the location of the Holy Grail and many persons have tried to solve it, among them Charles Darwin and two code breakers from the second World War. None of the proposed solutions have gained widespread acceptance. The Wikipedia website shows more information. This website shows the final solution of the inscription.

OUOSVAVV, and DM on the line below.


As late as in January 2011 a statement made by an historian could be seen in the papers, he said the code was only graffiti, and meant nothing. This is not the case, the inscription is not made just for fun, on the contrary. A code-key isn’t needed because everything is there, just in front of our eyes, the best hiding place. The clues are hidden in the letters, and in the image situated above the inscription.

On the monument there is also a mirror image of Nicolas Poussin’s painting, the Shepherds of Arcadia, which shows a woman and three shepherds, two of them pointing to a tomb on which is carved the Latin text ET IN ARCADIA EGO, meaning “I am also in Arcadia” or something similar. The carving displays a number of small alterations from the original painting. The tomb on the painting has disappeared and there seems to be a slanting line, pointing upwards to the top where there is an urn situated, an urn with a four-sided lid, the sides are triangular.


Poussin's painting, Les Bergers d'Arcadie


There are eight letters on the top line of the inscription, the same number as the missing letters between D and M on the line below. The first thing you have to do is to move D and M closer to the ends of the top line and write the missing letters in between. Like this:

O U O S V A V V
D E F G H I J K L M

And now you can see what shape the cryptogram is heading for. Just look at the urn above with its lid and the triangular sides. Yes, it is a pyramid, made of the letters A – V. The letters on the top line are the beginnings of hidden words, exactly as many people already have understood, but the language is not Latin, it is English. OUOSVAVV means

OVER UNDER OVER SNAKES VERBOSITY AND VICE VERSA

Why "verbosity"? The answer is that the solution shows a very different readingmethod or perhaps word-creating-method. Explanation further below in the text. The solution looks like this

A V
B S T U
C R Q P O N
O U O S V A V V
D E F G H I J K L M

The four letters at the end of the alphabet is missing, perhaps a disturbing fact, but it is impossible to create a pyramid by using four more letters. The missing dot after the last V indicates there is no continuation because of the reversed usage of the other dots. You have to think vice versa. A and V, the first and the last letters in the top position is logic, but there can be something more to it. The shape of the letters points upwards and downwards, exactly as the standing columnar wawe of tachion energy that is said to run through a pyramid according to some esoteric teachings. In reality some scientists talk about a corresponding but hypothetic particle namned tachyon, that moves faster than light.

This pyramidsolution will most probably have four sides, exactly as on the image. The crypto is a symbolic lid of an urn hiding quite a lot of contents. Explanation further down in the text.
The letter-pyramid is a kind of crossword where you can create words by using letters situated together, on the left side, on the right side, over, under, and even diagonal. It is possible to create quite many words and the question comes up which of them are relevant and not. Of course there ought to be both kinds and you have to decide for yourselves. BUT:The specific words are not the most important, no, it's the word-creating-method itself that's important and the very reason for the existence of the inscription.

On the left-hand we can find SHUGBOROUGH and OUROBOROS which is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon swallowing its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. This is a wide known symbol, frequently used by the Freemasons and the Rosicrucians, RC in the crypto. An extra point: SNAKES begins where OUROBOROS ends, the same location of another interesting word, SHIVA, in Hinduism a major deity, a destroyer god but also a transformer, an authority over death, rebirth and immortality, a function identical to OUROBOROS. SHIVA often wears serpents as ornaments and he is the masculine aspect of divinity.

If we assume the J to be a joker position and consequently can be any letter whatsoever, we also can create the name SHAKTI, the concept or personification of divine feminine creative power, sometimes refered to as The Great Divine Mother in Hinduism. SHAKTI is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism. On the earthly plane, SHAKTI most actively manifests through female embodiment and creativity/fertility, though it is also present in males in its potential, unmanifest form.
In humans SHAKTI is represented as the Kundalini, a force which lies coiled at the base of the spine envisioned as a sleeping serpent, often called “serpent power”. When the Kundalini rises to the head, it is said to unite itself with SHIVA, the one and only way of attaining Divine Wisdom, and brings with itself “pure joy, pure knowledge and pure love”; awakening takes place.
At the same place in the crypto we find the Hindu goddess KALI, a consort of SHIVA, her name means black, time and death, and she is considered the goddess of time and change.
This information is what I have found when using the Internet possibilities. I want you to understand that I am not an expert, only a searcher.

On the left-hand we can also read as follows: ABC-CODE, DEFOE, and CRUSOE. RC = Robinson Crusoe. Perhaps there is more code to be found in this famous book written by Daniel Defoe. If that's the case, the code still waits for its breaker, because even though there seems to be a lot of clues hidden in the text I haven’t succeeded in my attempts. When you read the book again with the knowledge that there perhaps is a hidden code you will discover some peculiar formulations and a massive richness in figures describing how many of this and that. It is done with such a pedantry that you come to wonder why you haven’t been noticing it before. There ought to be an explanation to this odd writingmanner which is constantly repeated.

Other words to be found for example: AVALON, the island known from The Story of King Arthur, the artist POUSSIN, UPON-AVON and STRATFORD = Stratford-upon-Avon. WILLIAM can be found if you use the two V-letters together, and even SHAKESPEARE if you use the joker position. HORUS from egyptian mythologi, NOA the bible-man and his ARK. Some abbreviations: HG = Holy Grail, HOG = Hand Of God. And of course there are a lot of other words, those who are interested are invited to look for themselves.

The other sides of the lid then. How to create them? The answer is apparently the dots situated after the letters D and M. The suggestion DIIS MANIBUS, already made by several other code-breakers ought to fit excellent. Roman tombstones often included the letters D.M., which meant "Diis Manibus", "for the Manes". In ancient Roman religion, the Manes or Di Manes are chthonic (deities or spirits of the underworld) deities sometimes thought to represent the souls of deceased loved ones. DIIS MANIBUS fits between D and M if you write MANIBUS backwards, exactly what the words on the line above tells us to do, VICE VERSA! The two words will share the end letter S, like this:

A V
B S T U
C R Q P O N
O U O S V A V V
D I I S U B I N A M

The other sides of the pyramid is pure guesswork, but because of the newfound word BINA, one of the sephirot in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, the next proposal is DA'AT and MALCHUT, two of the other ones - there are ten/eleven altoghether. Because of my unfamiliarity with expressing myself in english, I'm born and live in Sweden, I unfortunately have to direct you to look for explanations of theese kabbalistic terms somewhere else. Please forgive my school-english, a long time has passed since I left school and I never speak or write in english. I hope I can make myself understood in spite of the odd expressions/words that this article most probably is crowded of.

A V
B S T U
C R Q P O N
O U O S V A V V
D A A T U H C L A M

There is something more concerning the Kabbalah. In the Swedish edition of Will Parfitt’s book The Elements of the Qabalah is also mentioned another name of Malchut, but the problem here is that I can’t find the corresponding name in English. In the Swedish translation it also has the name “Fröjdernas äng”, the corresponding phrase in English would be something like “The Meadow of Joy”, quite obviously Arcadia, which opens up this question: was "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" Poussin’s way of telling that he was a kabbalist? If so, it certainly must have been of utterly importance to hide that fact because of the Inquisition.
Some new words: AURORA the Roman goddess of dawn, and HAVAMAL the edda poem.

Further sides... well, DATA MATRIX perhaps:

A V
B S T U
C R Q P O N
O U O S V A V V
D A T A X I R T A M

Here you can find AVATAR, a deliberate descent of a deity to earth "for the protection of the good and for the destruction of evil".

Now I have made three guesses but because of the uncertainty I make one more, and I must say that I find it absolutely irresistible:

A V
B S T U
C R Q P O N
O U O S V A V V
D R A G O I L R E M
N N

DRAGON and MERLIN from The Legend of King Arthur which is said to contain much symbolism. The two words don’t seem to fit, but on second thought NN is the perfect signature. Nomen nescio, abbreviated NN, is used to signify an anonymous or non-specific person, and the name of the creator of the inscription isn’t known.

Then there is a most peculiar circumstance, not only concerning this side of the pyramid. Most obviously you can create words in other languages than english in these letterpyramids, but the fact is that on this Dragon-Merlin-side you can create the swedish words "SAGORNA" and "LEGENDERNA", translation: fairy tales and legends. Seems rather suitable, doesn't it? And there is more of the same kind of literature to be found, NARNIA, and if you use swedish: NARNIA-SAGORNA. LEWIS, the author, can be seen too, if you use the two V together as W. More findings: Tolkien's ARAGORN, and POMPERIPOSSA, you know the witch with the extremely long nose. No? Well, I'm not surprised if that story isn't familiar to you. It's a swedish fairy tale.
On the first side of this pyramid you can create the swedish word BRUKSANVISNING which is the same as "directions for use", and that is exactly what the eight letters OUOSVAVV really are, they tell us how to think and how to do. But why on earth read swedish words? Well, they are there to be seen for anyone who speaks swedish, it's impossible not too see them. Anyone who is interested can search for words in other languages, and this finding of "SAGORNA" and "BRUKSANVISNING" is perhaps only a peculiar coincidence... or perhaps not.

There is more to be told about this method of reading, it seems as if it is well known by freemasons and other secret societies, at least that is the information coming through when using it. A kind of chanelling it seems. The time has come to reveal the method which is a method to train the brain. It is meant to be used by anybody who is interested, not only the members of the secret societies.

But there is more to it than that, rather astonishing findings have been made when using the method on varying texts. Of course you can use it on all kind of texts, preferably short ones, as long as a suitable dataprogram is'nt available. If you have heard about the Bible-code you get the picture. A meandering text that continues without interruption. If you start writing to the left, the next line will continue from right to left, the text changes direction, the third line goes left - right, the forth right - left and so on. The difference is that the Bible-code is based on counting letters, the same amount of letters is regularly omitted and the letters between adds up together and creates words or messages. The words are always horisontal, vertical or diagonal, strait lines.
This "DM-method" functions different, the words can have any shape and where one word ends the next starts, yes, that is my own astonishing experience. The diagrams "talks", at least to me, and I have a strong feeling that they will talk to anyone who is interested in communication with "the other side". And one more thing, very important I think, this communication is done with humorous seriousness. I have never heard of or experienced anything like this before.

The evidence. Yes. Where is the verification certificate that this solution of the Shugborough Hall inscription is correct? The only thing I can do is to show what I have found in some of the letterdiagrams. William Shakespeare on the first pyramidside and Bacon on the last can be seen as clues, but that was not understood by me when my work with this method started. I had to follow my intuition and have written it all down, Den förborgade skriften, available only in swedish unfortunately, but in the last chapters is presented some diagrams with interesting findings even for those who speak other languages. What about Francis Bacon's name, Sir Francis Bacon, philosopher, essayist and scientist, who has been proposed as the author of Shakespeare's plays. But of course you can find a lot of other names too so the finding of his name is no evidence, but... well you have to look with your own eyes and decide what to think. And what about pictures showing the esoteric Mercaba! Yes, there are illustrations created of words in some of the diagrams and not only in these sonnets.

Chapter 25 contains two diagrams created of To the Reader, the foreword to Shakespeare's First Folio. My answer to the question why the diagrams have this shape is that if someone has hidden something by using this method, something which is meant to be found, the greatest chance for this to happen is by creating a square. And what is there to be found? Francis Bacons name for instance and a very nice Mercaba-picture. Not bad.

Chapter 26 contains two different diagrams, the famous Sonnet 18 and the poem O Mistress Mine where are you roaming. In sonnet 18 the name Francis Bacon can be seen in two places. To the right where it has the shape of an arrow pointing to the left, and in that direction, in the centre, we can see Francis Bacon again, it can be read from three different startingpoints and is situated between William and Shakespeare, in fact it connects these names. The diagram told me that Francis Bacon is the real author, but of course this is not an evidence.
In the "Ariadne-version" of the diagram, you know Ariadne and the labyrinth, you can see a picture of a flying Mercaba created of the words Mercaba and Solomon's sigil clustered together.
The finding in the O Mistress Mine-diagram is harder to explain but consists of Valerie Solanas and her revolver held by two symbolic hands created of the word "present" which is duplicated and can be read in both directions. Solanas is the author of SCUM Manifesto, a radical feminist manifesto published in 1967. The Manifesto is widely regarded as satirical, but based on legitimate philosophical and social concerns according to the Wikipedia. Valerie Solanas' name can also be found on the last side of the solution.

Chapter 27 contains the diagram of a swedish folk song. The illustration fills the diagramsurface, the letter S, the shape is beautiful and sofisticated and shows the meandering style of this method. The S consists of "Francis" and Shakespeare". How on earth is this possible? A strange coincidence and nothing else, is easy to think. Only creativity is another suggestion. But in that case; not renerias creativity. There are more pictures and spectacular wordclusters not yet shown on my website, mostly in the sonnets, and the humorous articles coming through when looking at the diagrams, they are not at all written in a way I would have choosed. What on earth is happening? Well it seems as it is meant to be a kind of school, spiritual education is the subject but delivered in a very humorous way, often so absolutely crazy that it is impossible not to laugh. And still, the seriousness is undoubtedly there. Some of the diagramarticles will be published later, that's the plan, please note: not my plan. I don't know when. The only thing I know for sure is that they will be published in swedish only. But perhaps there are other persons in other countries working with the same project, I would'nt be surprised. We have to wait and see.

One more thing: if you replace the letters of the Shugborough Hall inscription with the numbers of their alphabetical position and add them together you get 154, the same number as Shakespeare's sonnets. Is this only a peculiar circumstance? - No, definitely not.
