Hey Yall I'm brand new here and was just wondering, I found this site a while back and never quite had the guts to join and anyhow I finally did and
this is my first post here on ATS. I'm interested in Freemasonry because I am one. I have been as far as the 3rd degree. It seems to me there are
more Masons here and I have a question.
What is the signifigance of the cable tow tied thrice around the body in the 3rd degree? And why do they say somewhere in the ritual to release the
canidate for he is bound by a stronger tye and need no longer be bound?
It's something like that, I can't remember word for word right now what it said but I was wondering why? Oh and also if you ever make it to the
33rd degree do they wrap a rope around you 33 times?
