The Cosmic Veil
Masonry has only 3 Degrees which are the "Symbolic Degrees" & those are 1st Degree Entered Apprentice, 2nd Degree Fellowcraft, & 3rd Degree Master
Mason. as in the English Lodge also known as the Blue Lodge that's as high as it goes & btw it's called blue because blue represents
also when the Sun shines during a cloudless day & it lights up the sky
creating what we call the Rayleigh Scattering
the sky is our Blue heaven with Solar Light.
The Scottish Rite is one of two largest concordant bodies of Freemasonry in which a Master Mason may proceed after he has completed the three degrees
of Craft lodge masonry. The Scottish Rite work expands and elaborates on the lessons of the three Craft lodge degrees. As with Freemasonry, the
Scottish Rite is not a religion, and it is nondenominational, although it does require a belief in a Supreme Being.
The Scottish Rite, sometimes called the "College of Freemasonry", uses extensive dramatic plays and allegory to emphasize the messages of its
degrees. A freemason, after viewing these dramas, will eventually attain the 32nd degree in Scottish Rite masonry. To a non-mason this may sound like
the member is a high ranking mason, however, this would be a misconception. The highest degree in Freemasonry is the 3rd or Master Mason degree.
Degrees as they relate to the Scottish Rite indicate the level of knowledge that a Master Mason has attained. It would be rather awkward to allude to
a member as an Act 32 freemason. In the Scottish Rite, the 33rd degree, an honorary degree, is bestowed on members of the Scottish Rite who have given
outstanding service to Freemasonry or to their communities.
In the Scottish Rite a Master Mason may become a member of three bodies — Lodge of Perfection, Rose Croix, and Consistory. Degrees 4-17 are rarely
worked fellows! 18th & above are though here & there. & this brings us to another problem people have no mason has the time in the scottish rite to
work every single Degree come on get real... although it has been done
most of the time in todays busy world it is NOT possible so like I said
scottish rite 4-17 rarely worked these days...
