So you're saying that Hall, spending 2 solid years on research, proved to his own satisfaction that there was nothing nefarious in Masonry, so he decided to join? Sounds like a ringing endorsement to me!

Like i said, the book in the OP is written by a man who spent 2 solid years researching in detail the Mysteries. He became a Mason after writing the book. It is the best source of information on Masonic teachings that I have found.
Of course, i dismiss many of the available mason books as propaganda meant to bury their mysteries even deeper away from the profane.

Hate to be picky, but by which science exactly? Nowhere am I seeing anything about 32 areas of the brain. The only numbered system I've found lists 52... (with #14 & 15 being non-human, and #s 49-51 not showing up on the list for some reason... still, that gives us 47...)

It is possible that at a very high level (the "beyond 33" that we are talking about here) someone such as the queen could have involvement.
