The Rites of Memphis and Misraim are available to be experienced by any Master Mason in good standing, via the Grand College of Rites.
Actually, there is ALOT of additional Masonic Light to be had...
So, even if moonchild were telling the truth about his affiliation, by saying that he his privy to some knowledge that a regular Master Mason in good standing is not, he is in error.

The subject of differing degrees between Memphis/Scottish/York is so confusing to me. Just so I have this straight, you are speaking of the 18th degree for Memphis, which of course is going to be different for Scottish and York? Or are you saying the degree is "in name" the same among all three but that your rite interprets/practices it differently (and from what I infer from your posts, you believe your rite takes it to a "deeper level" of understanding)?
