Are We Human?
Date: 2/24/2018 3:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Katie Cumsille
Synopsis: Frank Herbert is a notable science fiction writer and author of the acclaimed series Dune. His story is set in the far future and centers around the transformation of a young man named Paul. One of the many tests Paul must endure determines whether he is an animal or human. In this MPS we will discuss what it means to be human, what are the conditions in which one needs to become what they are destined to be, and what are the consequences of choosing to walk that path. Join us as we investigate one of the most important decisions of a Freemason, to choose to be human or not. (Note: You do not have to read the book to be a part of the conversation!)

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstien
