Who are we really?
Date: 1/27/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Henry Kelly
Synopsis: "I am not the person I was.” We hear that a lot, especially when it comes to growing older and, one hopes, wiser. Indeed, we’re not the same person we were. Over the course of time, our cells die, regenerate, add, delete, change, morph, and eventually we have all new cells. But we retain our name, our memories, our lives. Are we not the same person? One would argue that of course we are. Or are we? Really?

Is chaos a good thing?
Date: 2/24/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Karen Kidd
Synopsis: In many esoteric and religious traditions chaos is described as a necessary component for life, the universe, and everything. The "Big Bang" is often thought of as the chaotic origins of the present Universe from which order evolved. In Hinduism,there is Brahma the world-creator Vishnu, the world-maintainer, and Shiva the world-destroyer. In science, there is a recognized life cycle of birth, life, and death. There also is a suggestion that there can be no order without chaos, which leads to Freemasonry's great motto, "Ordo Ab Chao." Chaos often is relatively defined, especially in the first world (my flight was late, the limo got stuck in traffic, my room wasn't ready, I forgot my lucky tie, the cellphone charger didn't reach from the nightstand to the middle of the bed, everything was utter chaos). It is rare to hear someone who has experienced genuine chaos (war, famine, pestilence and death) discuss chaos so readily, let alone as a necessary and good thing. It's hard to imagine the people of Rome in 412, abducted human beings forced into the transatlantic slave trade or Anne Frank and other victims of the Holocaust discussing the chaos that overtook their lives as a good, inevitable and necessary thing. Is chaos - REAL CHAOS - a good thing?

What is the true meaning of The Word?
Date: 3/24/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Byron Gorrell
Synopsis: Religions, particularly Christian and Catholic, associate The Word with the written word in the Bible, with Jesus, or both. It is described as the embodiment of what God is and wishes to convey to us all. However, what does a closer examination of The Word tell us? Is the commonly accepted interpretation of that concept correct? As a Freemason, we are propelled to scrutinize all questions and so in this discussion we will journey down a path of discovery which may surprise you in its outcome – potentially contrary to what you have been taught growing up.

Does the triangle represent fundamental Truths about our reality?
Date: 6/23/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Byron Gorrell
Synopsis: The triangle, as a symbol, can be seen in many places throughout our reality. Whether on the sub-atomic, palpable physical, conceptual, or metaphysical level, the triangle appears again and again. Freemasonry teaches us that symbols have deeper meaning than what is perceived at the surface. What, then, are the deeper meanings of the triangle? What is it that is fundamental about that shape that cuts across so much of our experience? In Freemasonry, we more often hear about squares and other geometric shapes than we do triangles. However, triangles and triads certainly are there. Indeed, 19th Century Masonic Ritualist and Compiler Albert Mackey said, "There is no symbol more important in its significance, more various in its application, or more generally diffused throughout the whole system of Freemasonry, than the triangle. An examination of it, therefore, cannot fail to be interesting to the Masonic student."

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
