The Masonic Philosophical Society was established with the primary ambition
to destroy ignorance, a dividing force in Humanity's evolution, by disseminating Masonic
principles through dynamic discussions. Morte ad ignorantiam embodied this vision and was
therefore chosen to be its official motto.
To bring death to ignorance, The Society dedicated its institution to the
studying of all aspects of knowledge through a Masonic lens. Such actions would ultimately lead
to the formation of the Seal, a nine pointed star, or enneagram.
The enneagram was created to be the foundation by which The Society would
affect lasting change by its open dialogs and it is formed by three general evaluations of
knowledge: physical, metaphysical and cultural. The Physical Triangle embodies all objective
points of the universe while the Metaphysical Triangle symbolizes the subjective nature of the
universe and the Cultural Triangle captures its expressive form.
Each triangle was then further broken down into three specific yet
encompassing sub-categories of knowledge. These topics of study would provide each study
center the opportunity to investigate the universe and her secrets more specifically. Thus,
the points of the Physical Triangle are Natural, Behavioral and Formal Sciences; Philosophy,
Esotericism and Theology are the Metaphysical Triangle; and Art, Literature and History
represent the Culural Triangle.
The three triangles with its nine points of knowledge, or nine Topics of
Study, create the foundation and curriculum of The Society and is ultimately the tool by which
ignorance will be defeated.
