Are there esoteric lessons to be gleamed from the progressive science of Mathematics?
Date: 11/11/2017 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Joshua Fradenburg
Synopsis: As students progress in their studies of Mathematics, they build a deeper understanding of the postulations of mathematical principles. In modern “advanced” societies, the mathematical teachings focus on the machinations and manipulations of numbers and equations which are written on pages or white-boards. In this discussion, we will explore deeper lessons which lie within the progressive science of Mathematics. We will question if these esoteric lessons are relevant in the Modern Era. We will also draw on any parallels between the progressive natures of Mathematics and Freemasonry.

Is the Scientific Method obsolete?
Date: 12/9/2017 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Kristine Wilson-Slack
Synopsis: The overall process of the scientific method involves making conjectures (hypotheses), deriving predictions from them as logical consequences, and then carrying out experiments based on those predictions. Some scientists have declared, as far back as 30 years ago, that "All models are wrong, but some are useful." The deluge of data and analytics may make the scientific method a thing of the past. Freemasons, who are lovers of nature and science have often used the Scientific method to explain the world and support their philosophies. We'll explore the ways that the scientific method hiders, and helps, Freemason's quests for Truth.

"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
