What has always interested me about "Secret Societies" is, well, the "secrets" that were being held and the way in which these secrets were being
woven into popular culture. Since my interest was in the hidden philosophical side of the Illuminatus, as it were, what interested me was "the
Speculative Masonry has many definitions, and I am not wanting to get into an argument as to which is "THE" acceptable and "approved" definition:
it is good that a discussion ensue that brings to the surface the many used definitions such that the concept becomes more openly known and
The more time I spent in research, the more often I came to be introduced to the "conspiracy theorists" who make their living peddling their own
fears and paranoia's. What becomes obvious to anyone versed into the Masonic system is that the "conspiracy theorists" quite often do not have a
comprehensive understanding of the Speculative Arts, and so often are led down paths built on known deceptions that the "conspiracy theorist", not
versed in the tactical use of the Speculative Arts. is too uneducated to grasp.
The "speculative arts" remain a critical key to the larger puzzle defined as "the Construct".
Well, "The Fetch" at his blog, The Illuminatus
, has released a new article called "The WORD as a Function of Speculative Masonry" wherein he goes into some of the very basic
elements of Speculative Masonry.
The primary theory he puts forward is that the "LOST WORD" is a code for Pi, and that the Alphabet remains a hyper-dimensional representation of
this Lost Word.
He quotes Albert Mackay as follows:
The mythical history of Freemasonry informs us that there once existed a WORD of surpassing value, and claiming a profound veneration; that this
Word was known to but few; that it was at length lost; and that a temporary substitute for it was adopted. But as the very philosophy of Masonry
teaches us that there can be no death without a resurrection,--no decay without a subsequent restoration,--on the same principle it follows that the
loss of the Word must suppose its eventual recovery.
He then goes on to show how this WORD is an esoteric construct set against Pi by quoting Blavatsky in "The Secret Doctrine",
But this last ratio is but a modified form of light or 20612 to 6561, as a '[[pi]]' value, being only a variation of the same (that is 20612 to
6561 is 31415 to one, or Alhim or God) -- and in such a manner that one can be made to flow into and be derived from the other, and these are the
three steps by which the Unity and sameness can be shown of the divine names. That is, the two are but variations of the same ratio, viz., that of

What is fascinating is that the good will often found in Freemasonry at many levels is completely ignored by so called "researchers" who proclaim
themselves "conspiracy theorists".
Dennis Fetcho, aka The Fetch, is perhaps the one of the few authors working in the conspiracy space that has been able to transcend the fear mongering
lunacy of the typical conspiracy theorists plodding along and who has been able to penetrate the inner core of the Illuminatus System and deal with it
in a rational and focused presentation.
His latest work at the Illuminatus Observor
is another effort to take back from the conspiracy theorists
their wild eyed speculation and return to the discussion the core meanings that were and remain fused to the inner core of Speculative Freemasonry.
You may not agree with him, but no one can argue that few work as hard to rationally deal with a complex subject.
