    From A Bond for All the Ages : Sir Francis Bacon and John Dee : the Original 007:

    Elizabeth was very much interested in the occult. Dee was responsible for choosing the most auspicious date for Elizabeth's coronation which was on January 15th, 1559. The Queen was so impressed by Dee that she eventually travelled with her court to Mortlake, for the purpose of seeing his great library.

    Dee has been defamed through the centuries as a necromancer, but it's the opinion of many writers that his angelic-cabalistic- alchemical work, his Philosophers Stone, the"Monad Hieroglyphica"(1564) may have been a cover for covert operations carried on in the name of her majesty. The 007 was the insignia number that Elizabeth was to use for private communiques between her Court and Dee.

    Dee signed his letters with two circles symbolising his own two eyes and indicating that he was the secret eyes of the Queen.The two circles are guarded by what may be considered a square root sign or an elongated seven. For Dee, seven was a sacred cabbalistic and lucky number.(Richard Deacon)


    Could this have lead to the designation of the 00 line in the secret service, and in particular guided Sir Ian Flemming in using 007? Or was it a happy coincidnce? Or is there no such thing as coincidence? :D

    let's see: an avid code-breaker via the Cabbala, etc; member of secretive "think-tanks" for the Queen; was at one point seen as a double agent for both the Protestants and the Catholics.

    hmmmm, maybe so.

    I read it that while Dee flounced around the High Courts of Europe doing the whole lead into gold thing, he was reporting back to Elizabeth who signed her communicatications to him as 'My eyes' symbolised by 007 - a drawing of pair of eyeglasses with the handle.

    Good little podcast discussion here between occult authors Gordon White and Enochian practitioner, Jason Louv.

    Louv's written a book on Dee's massive contribution to western traditions of all sorts. There's a suggestion in this conversation (indication?) that The British Empire emerged from an occult conspiracy. Louv also states that there would be no space program without A Crowley. Interesting given there's a new series out next month about Thelemite Jack Parsons, the founder of the JPL - forerunner of NASA.

    I'm really starting to get into the ideas, histories and practices of the western magic tradition. There's definitely something there to savour.

    Excuse the dropouts in the audio - they're annoying but don't cut the flow of key points.
