I go to a school of engineering in colorado. The colorado school of mines. I was just wondering, and i would definitely like to hear form some masons
on this one.
What is the signifigacne of a masonic cornerstone? It seems like all of the buildings on campus have these things. Also the builidings on campus are
connected by a series of steam tunnels underneath. The steam tunnels house pipes that carry steam and hot water, from a place that i bet everyone is
familiar with. The coors brewery. It is a system devised to cool the brewerey while heating the school. These tunnels run all the way from campus,
to coors (a distance of over a mile, as a crow flies) and they are more than large enough to walk through. This is all brought to us by the legacy of
our good "friend," Pete Coor,s who lost at his recent attempt to dabble in politics. Thank god for that.
Also a couple of buildings with cornerstones have gold tops (gold windows on the top of stratton hall (an almost perfectly cube shaped building), and
a gold dome on top of simon guggenheim hall, a buliding with chimes that chime every half hour. It also plays music on some days, or at certain times
of the day.
I am also curious about the new government building, that we needed but no one really wanted where it was put. It is one of the most advanced and
efficient justice centers/courts, in the country, not to mention the state. There is a system of doors that lead to elevator shafts in each wing of
the building. There is one door in EVERY courtroom that leads to these elevators. These elevators go to a sub basement where a tram takes the
convicted through an undergoround tunnel to the meduim sec. prison/jail right next door. The architecture of the bulding is incredible. There is a
six or so story glass cylinder topped wiht a galss dome, this froms the entance and atrium of the building. The two wings are arcs the touch tangent
to the cyinder, forms this shape when viewe from above---> )O(
Behind the building on the mezanine there is a breathtaking view of the mountains, with the larges masonic cornerstone I have ever seen, dead smack
in the middle of the mezanine. There is also an Oboleisk in front of the building, it is about 20 feet tall.
Do underground tunnel systems correspond with any other masonic buildings. Is there anywhere else with this type of concentration of buildings with
cornerstones (i would say that 75% of the academic buildings have cornerstones)?
