(spoken)
I was reading a Colin Wilson book where it said that Francis Bacon said that the human mind is easily fooled: that we believe what we want to believe, and recognize only those facts that conform to those beliefs.

Now, a lot of people say Francis Bacon wrote the Shakespeare plays, in addition to making all those really cool paintings. In The Tempest, Act 1, Scene 2, it says, "Begun to tell me what I am: but stopp'd." That's the first line. "And left me to a bootless inquisition." That's the second line. And the third line: "Concluding 'Stay'"–colon–"'not yet.'" Get it? "Begun" begins with a "B," and "And" begins with an "A," and "Concluding" begins with "C-O-N." "B-A-C-O-N." "Bacon"! Also, on the back cover of King Lear, Shakespeare isn't wearing any shoes, and he's facing the wrong way. It seems pretty obvious to me, but what do I know? I heard maybe he wrote the King James Bible too. There are three verses in Exodus, one after the other, each with seventy-two letters each, and if you stack them on top of each other and write the second one backwards while standing on a chair, it sounds like "Cranberry sauce." Now, Shakespeare says it was just a drawing that Julian had brought home from school, but I don't believe that for a minute. I don't know what to believe anymore.
