Oh, sure. Visual aids can be quite useful, from flash cards, to diagrams, to slide presentations, you name it. They are even used to varying degrees in the following fields:

The military, world travel, NASA employee, whistlebowing, Nat'l honor clubs and fraternities, politics, political hack, reporter, contractor, security work and commodity investing, etc.

Sound familiar?

Yes, even in FRATERNITIES, which . . . . . don't admit women. Masonry, too, doesn't admit women, but of course you would never object to that . . . .right??



Hypocrisy can be very insidious.

So, what's your point?

You want to be a lawyer- you need to not be myopic to do a decent job at that, is this true?

Well, Masonry is a FRATERNITY, so its not surprising that it does not admit women, and I am frankly surprised that folks keep bringing it up, as if women SHOULD be a part of a FRATERNITY... i would be very interested in seeing why someone who is NOT a mason feels they have a right to even discuss such an issue... but that is off topic.

So, lets talk about tracing boards. Historically, not everyone could read (remember, masonry is CENTURIES OLD), hence tracing boards, the earliest of which may have been sand on the floor, were used to illustrate the symbolic teachings of masonry. today, more formal, fancy tracing boards are often used, as are props... the point within a circle, the charter, the tools themselves, to illustrate and explain...
