Besides... why is it that when anyone asks for feedback from masons they say there is no conspiracy... or it is part of a conspiracy that some nut job
came up with and I have been taking it too literally?
Now... don't go off the handle and say that everything needs geometry. Fine. It does. But to the masons that I know, geometry plays a very
important part in their rituals even the postition of the lodge. I think that I can even go as far to say that geometry has many "allusions" that
are guiding principals in how a mason is supposed to lead their lives.
There is a good reason why when anyone asks for feedback from Masons we sa there is no conspiracy or that the notion is just part of some conspiracy
theory some nut job came up with or that you are taking things too literally. It is because, for the most part, when people ask for feedback from
Masons on this forum:
1) There is no conspiracy;
2) The idea of the conspiracy is just something some nut job came up with and,
3) You are taking the nut job too literally.
Freemasons do, indeed, have a fondness for the science of geometry which the ritual tells us has been important to humanity since we first desired to
shelter ourselves from the rain. It pervades the building arts, an understanding of it is required to safely construct a shelter, and a deep
understanding of geometry has lead to the most beautiful accomplishments of the builder's art. You can understand why a Fraternity that takes its
symbolism from the operative masons would value geometry.
Now... here is a new conspiracy. Did you know that in schools across this nation, geometry -- the same branch of mathematics that has such a central
place in Masonic ritual -- is being taught to children? In most places, these classes are mandatory!! Won't someone please think of the children!
The keypad at DIA does, in fact, sit above a time capsule that was placed at the cornerstone dedication which was conducted, if I recall correctly, by
the Grand Lodge of Colorado. It sits above the slab and, I suspect, the correct combination allows access to a vault area where the time capsule was
placed. I guess they though the keypad would look nifty and bypass the need to break up a part of the floor to get to the time capsule when the day
came to retrieve it.
