    @mr blobby, he is very interesting, isn’t he? Especially with him being a 33rd degree Mason.

    Personally, I won’t tarnish the whole of Freemasonary with the usual “evil” conspiratorial brush. Like any organisation (secret or in the public eye), there will always be a percentage of members who are susceptible to corruption.

    Hall, in my opinion, was a decent man who spoke tirelessly for one to embrace wisdom instead of ignorance, and for the world to pursue peace instead of self-destruction through war.

    Unfortunately for Hall, he himself may have been a victim of the very same vices of greed and Unscrupulousness that the world suffers from. Very bizarre but suspicious circumstances surrounding his own death – all fingers point at his carer in his final days.

    Why not 34 degrees? i know little of building and carpentry, so i do not know why it is 33 degrees? What happened to the other degrees… they must be feeling unloved? Or, is it to do with sacred geometry?

    Anyway, a ‘mason’ is just a word… so is ‘policeman’ and ‘terrorist’ and ‘cocaine’ and muslim’! Am now starting to learn how about the many words that are used to hypnotize and indoctrinate entire populations into being led (mentally & spiritually) into a particular direction. Very interesting stuff. A girl working in a BANK… does not even know that MORTGAGE translates (literally) into DEATH PLEDGE! Just as well she had a very nice round bottom… or i may have judged her, negatively. LOL

    BTW: i am not ‘english’, either. That, too – is also just a word!

    I don’t know about you, blobby, but I always loved The 3 Degrees – not only pretty but great singers too 😉

    Words are too limited, and can be at the same time manipulative. Why not do away with the whole english language and let us go back to ancient times (especially Egyptian) where communication was carried out in symbolic form.

    That is why when people speak of “God”, something which is suppose to be so divine and omnipotent, I cannot help but think how can we give a word or label to “that” which is so unfathomable to the human mind.

    We can forever try to build a tower of words for us to reach the very heavens, but to no avail. We cannot hope to touch “that” through any creation derived from the minds of men – this includes man’s much prized “knowledge” – we can only hope to reach divine reality through spiritual means.

    Yes, brother J…

    Why cannot the name of god be spoken? Is it not for all the reasons you have stated, above? As soon as one attempts to describe him (us), he ceases to be that thing.

    Many folks (because of their lack of under-standing of the equivocal language of english) fail to have any true sense of:

    1. Who they are… They think they are a NAME!
    2. Where they live… They think they live in a fiction & not inside their SKIN!
    3. What is their life purpose… They think it is to earn the maximum amount of MONEY!
