Values of 14 Lines
1.
Even though hardly anyone
expects Shakespeare to use overall gematria, the result of all 14 lines is quite baffling and worth discussing:
1. If (15) thy (50) soule (68) check (29) thee (37) that
(47) I (9) come (34) so (32) neere, (45)
10 (10) 35 (35) 366 (366)
2. Sweare (67) to (33) thy
(50) blind (39) soule (68) that (47) I
(9) was (40) thy (50) Will, (52)
10 (20) 36 (71) 455 (821)
3. And (18) will (52) thy (50) soule (68) knowes (81) is
(27) admitted (73) there, (54)
8 (28) 36 (107) 423 (1244)
4. Thus (65) farre (46) for (37) loue, (50) my
(35) louesute (112) sweet (68) fullfill.
(85)
8 (36) 39 (146) 498 (1742)
5. Will, (52) will (52) fulfill (74) the (32) treasure
(102) of (20) thy (50) loue, (50)
8 (44) 35 (181) 432 (2174)
6. I (9) fill (37) it (28) full (48) with
(57) wils, (59) and (18) my (35) will (52) one,
(32)
10 (54) 31 (212) 375 (2549)
7. In (22) things (74) of (20) great (49) receit
(58) with (57) ease (29) we (26) prooue. (85)
9 (63) 37 (249) 420 (2969)
8. Among (47) a (1) number (69) one (32) is
(27) reckon'd (66) none. (45)
7 (70) 28 (277) 287 (3256)
9. Then (45) in (22) the (32) number (69) let (35) me (17) passe (57) vntold,
(81)
8 (78) 31 (308) 358 (3614)
10. Though (76) in (22) thy
(50) stores (91) account (73) I
(9) one (32) must (69) be, (7)
9 (87) 34 (342) 429 (4043)
11. For (37) nothing (83) hold
(37) me, (17) so (32) it (28) please (55) thee
(37) hold, (37)
9 (96) 34 (376) 363 (4406)
12. That (47) nothing (83) me, (17) a (1) something
(105) sweet (68) to (33) thee. (37)
8 (104) 34 (410) 391 (4797)
13. Make (28) but (41) my (35) name (31) thy
(50) loue, (50) and (18) loue
(50) that (47) still, (68)
10 (114) 36 (446) 418 (5215)
14. And (18) then (45) thou (61) louest (87) me
(17) for (37) my (35) name (31) is (27) Will
(52)
10 (124) 34 (480) 410 (5625)
2.
The total gematric result 5625
is 75 times 75 or 45*125, which is the number of
words (if louesute is
counted as one word). In this way the average value of a word is 3*15.
Also the total number of words is divisible by 15: 480/15 = 32. 480
is ten times the gematric value of AEMILIA.
The figure 15,
as has been shown, is connected with the sum of the sonnet lines 114, 105
= 7*15. His
two names WILL SHAKESPEARE
consist of 15 letters
and the gematric value of EMILIA
+ SHAKESPEARE =
103+47 = 150. So he
firmly ties the subject of LOVE
with 2*25 numeric
value and his love affair to the nature of the sonnet.
225 is
the square of 15 and the
combined gematrical value of the three 25letter names SHAKESPEARE (103) + WILLIAM (74) + AEMILIA (48). The average value is thus
9 for one letter.

1440 





Two neigbouring sums of the central part are each divisible by 15:
375+420 = 795 =
15*53; 287+358 = 645 = 15*43. The remaining factors 53+43 = 96
represent twice the gematric value of AEMILIA.
375 in itself
is divisible by 15*25, 75*5 and 125*3.
Two
symmetrical pairs, the first marked blue, the second green, have common prime
factors 41 and 97:

The
equal factors 15, 41, 97
obviously refer to the four quartets,
while the gematric sum of lines 3+12
is identical with the concluding couplet.
3+12 put together to the
3digit number 312 is 8*39,
the value of the initials WS.
The factors 2*37
= 74 of 814 is the value of WILLIAM, 2*11 = 22
is the number of letters of SHAKESPEARE + WILL+WILLIAM. 11+37 = 48
corresponds to AEMILIA, and 2+11+37 = 50
to the value of LOVE. There
is reason to believe that Shakespeare gives a special meaning to the first 3 numbers.
4.
Three factors of the added
results also occur in single sums: One
is divisibble by 15 , two by 41,
three by 11:

2282 =

The factors 41+11
add up to the value of Shakespeare's 4letter short name WIL+L. The average value a
letter is therefore 13, just
as the value of his initials WS 39 is
3*13.
5.
There is still more of
symmetrical construction: Line 6 functions as a kind of symmetrical centre. If
its value 375 is
added to the first two complementary pairs (factor 97), the result is divisible
by 11. Thus the factor 11 is,
by two symmetric additions of 5 and 2 line values, and another 2 single line
values contained in the result of 9 lines.

i.e. 399 on an average.
