It is striking that both books , Sir JD.'s "Nosce Teipsum"[s.Faksimile] and JD of Hereford's "Mirum in Modum" [s.Faksimile] printed in the same year (1602) dealing both with philosophical aspects of the Trinity of the soul (Sir.J.D."Of the Soule of Man", J.D.of H. "The Soules Shape".)
->Mirum in Modum (JD of Hereford)
The author dedicated his long poem to William Herbert, Earl of Pembrooke. [The First Folio of Shakespeare's plays was dedicated to him and his brother]. JD explains (s.Faksimile) that to subdivide his Soule indivisible was most impossible. He had to make his Soul a Trinity becoming 3 virtues 1.Understanding, 2.Will, and 3.Memorie)
Who can believe that these conspicuous overlaps and similarities did occur by chance?
JD in "Mirum in Modum" discloses (s.Faksimile) to his patron allegorically his decision at the time(1593), to divide his identity and his name as a result of an "understanding" of his personal situation, of his good "will" [or of the acceptane of a strawman William Shakspere, Stratford.] and of a hope of the continuance of his literary fame or "memory"?
There is an abundance of logic and plausible arguments to assume that the "true or real " poet-genius Marlowe / alias "Shakespeare" managed a permanent deception by inventing intials, pen-names pseudonyms [such as a "Double" John Davies]
Remember, what the one JD [of Hereford] wrote about the other JD [Sir JD] in "The scourge of Folly"(see faksimile below)
