Can Color Theory Serve As A Guide For A More Harmonic Relational Society?
Date: 1/26/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Dennis Garza
Synopsis: Modern color theory divides the eight primary colors into two categories of six chromatic (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) and two achromatic colors (black and white). It then divides them into two categories of “additive” and “subtractive” colors. If we consider the chromatic additive colors as “yang/masculine” and the chromatic subtractive colors as “yin/feminine," and the two achromatic colors as sums of each, we end up with the eight primary colors in a format that is a perfect representation of the eight trigrams of the I-Ching. Freemasonry attempts to guide the individual into a more harmonious relationship with others through a greater understanding of the self. Can a study of the yin and yang relational aspects of the trigrams in the ancient art of divination known as the I Ching, as seen through the eyes of modern color theory, serve as a guide to a greater understanding of the self, a greater understanding of others, and thus, to a more harmonic relational society?

Was J.S. Bach a brilliant, but stodgy composer, as he’s often thought of, or an inspired rebel who was able to transcend the rules of composition, and of society?

Synopsis: Pictures of J.S. Bach present the very image of respectability. The fact is, he was incredibly tough, and he bucked authority. As a young man, he was a street brawler; he publically tangled with musicians who didn’t meet his standards, and he regularly challenged his employers. But what about the music? Bach fully developed the structure of modern tonal music, and then focused his rebellious nature to transcend form and create art of incredible depth and breadth. In Freemasonry, we study the arts and sciences so we can better understand the structure of our world, learn to focus our energies and manifest our potential. What clues do Bach’s life and music have for a traveler on the path of evolution?

Is it possible to talk in a way kids will listen and to listen so kids will talk?

Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Jill F. Alessandra
Synopsis: There are many ways people deal with children, giving advice, instruction, and demands. Some see children as empty slates, needing us to fill them full of information. Others may see children as a fountain of possibility, needing the right conditions to unfold their inner potential. Is it possible to talk in a way that kids will listen? As Masons, we envision ourselves as rough material that must be cut and polished to be more useful to something bigger. Is there a way to work with children that is cooperative from both the adult and child? That touches and unfolds their genuine selves?

"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."
Albert Einstien
