OK - here's my basis for believing the lack of masonic symbolism of the obelisk.
I have never come across it used within freemasonry ever, in 15 years of membership and study. There are probably hundreds of objects that are
moralized upon or attract some sort of masonic symbolism beyond the generally accepted meaning, but the obelisk is not one of them. Can you find a
reference anywhere to the "obelisk" and what its masonic meaning might be?
Like the pyramid, the obelisk is assumed by the ignorant to be masonic because it's "kooky and esoteric, like masonry". Please, let's hold
ourselves to a higher standard here.
I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that Intrepid was a mason, correct me if I'm wrong.
I think you need to take that up with him. But I can tell you now that neither he nor I can categorically disprove that he is a freemason, and at some
point you are going to have to take people's word as probably fact. Like, er, the fact that the obelisk is not a masonic symbol.
