Does Fiction Build or Break the Morality of Individuals and Societies?
Date: 7/14/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Jamie Shuler
Synopsis: The effects of fictional literature on the human condition has been a topic of discussion among societies throughout time. Book bans and burnings, the FCC, even Plato had strong opinions on allowing fiction to be read by the masses. As Freemasons, we believe in freedom - including freedom of expression. What are the actual dangers of fiction, though? And if they exist, can we find the opposing power in fiction that would equally serve us?

Are the Mind and Body Two Distinct Substances?
Date: 9/8/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Doyle Slack
Synopsis: Rene Descartes posited that the mind and the body of a person are separate but united, constantly influencing each other. Later scientists and philosophers, such as Gilbert Ryle, believed that the body and its activities are what comprise the mind. With several different theories of the nature of the Mind and Body, it is important for Freemasons to determine where their thoughts lay because the Mason is taught to work to use his mind to control his bodies actions - but is this truly possible?

Can a society based on competition, brutality, and fear change its ways?
Date: 10/13/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Max Cumsille
Synopsis: Our modern world seems to be heading in a direction of more hate and division between groups and individuals. If this is not where we want to go, is there any way to stop the momentum of society and re-direct our path? We will analyze the book “Freedom of the known” by J. Krisnamurti, which defines the basis for any change we want to make in the current situation of Humanity.

What would our Founding Fathers think of the Supreme Court Today?
Date: 11/10/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Doyle Slack
Synopsis: Many of the Founding Fathers of this country were either Freemasons, or their ideals aligned closely with Masonic principles. They defined a system of government with checks and balances consisting of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. All of these have evolved over time, but the role of the Supreme Court has changed significantly, some would say far beyond what the Founding Fathers had in mind.

"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."
