It is an interesting theory.
A rather old-school trick also.
I am fully following your flow of thought, and it does seem plausible.
A little bit of light to shed on the masons concerning doctrine:
Free and Accepted Masonry are both cults, who believe the best way to worship God is by doing good for others.
They have a seperate form of salvation which basically boils down to salvation by works and people can save themselves.
While many members of a sect or order may follow the layed out doctrine, corruption often exists at the top.
Whethere this is a government, society, religion, knightly order, guild, etc...
Take for example a democratic society which values freedom.
While the majority of the people may support freedom unconditionally, some members of the government (higher up in the echelon) could possess their
own ambitions involving power and greed.
Or in a modern society, perhaps it is an oppulent philanthropist who, while giving to the poor, actually has no care for them.
You could use various other examples such as corrpution in churches, synagouges, mosques, temples, etc...
While I am not saying Masonry has fallen prey to this, it may have.
However, without any evidence, your theory is, still just a theory.
In it's current text, it seems cohesive and coherent as you pose questions rather than inferences.
Did you have any more ideas concerning this infinite?
