Prospero’s Books

A Blog not about Freemasonry, but by a Freemason. Interesting, I found this quite by accident, but enjoyed what he wrote. The post that drew me in was a brief mention of Chaos theory (and the book by James Gleick) and it’s attenuation to the ancient mystery schools knowledge, including Freemasonry. The parallel from the author said:

“The work being done on complex, nonlinear systems has, for me, the same quality I find in the Book of Ezekiel, The Gospel of Thomas, The Revelation of St. John the Divine, The Zohar, the rituals of Freemasonry, the Divine Comedy, the plays of Shakespeare, Joyce’s Ulysses, Meditations on the Tarot. That quality is the sense that these books…both conceal and reveal the deep hidden truths of the Cosmos.”

It’s an interesting comparison, and one I doubt that I have taken the time out to ponder or examine. Perhaps the comparison of Freemasonry to these other “non-linear systems” is a good comparison, that the parts taken out of context make no sense, but when assembled, create a beautiful harmony. In the broader spectrum, is Freemasonry on par with other glimpses of the Cosmos?
