Sable Island provides a excellent occasion to observe nature in an untouched, organic laboratory.

He also follows instructions found in Shakespeare’s First Folio and on the memorial smartphone in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon. Two ebooks have been particularly necessary in Amundsen’s research: Francis Bacon’s “The Advancement of Learning” and Gustavus Selenus “CRYPTOMENYTICES ET CRYPTOGRAPHIAE. Libri IX”. In “The Advancement of Learning” has a description of a bi-literal cipher, which Petter has made an attempt using on William Shakespeare’s original gravestone.
