I know that Rosicrucian studies teach that the number 3 is related to the law of the triangle.
The law of the triangle stipulates that two seemingly opposing energies create a new third energy. At their lowest common denominator the first two
can be thought of as the Ying and Yang, Positive/Negative, Male/Female, Dark/Light, Order/Chaos energies of the universe.
Also, the Jewish/Egyptian connection may come from the Rosicrucian teaching that Moses was an Egyptian initiate.
Symbolism is important because although it can bypass the concious mind it is fully interpreted by our subconcious minds.
But many pseudo-Rosicrucians ignore the significance of the Tao, the Conciliating Third Force.
The Third Arcanum is a very profound, very deep, penetrating
law which applies to every aspect of real esoteric knowledge.
But it is easy to become lost and confused in the intellect when we over-analyze and over-theorize about these laws. The Third Arcanum, for us,
can be very practical when we rely upon it in this way: knowing it is our Divine Mother, who is that third factor, that third force.
The teacher Gurdjieff said, "Humanity is third-force blind." It is true. We love duality, good versus evil, positive versus negative. But we
always forget the third factor. This also applies in our endeavors. When we endeavor to enter into some new activity, this is the first force,
projective, the Arcanum One. But as soon as we desire that, as soon as we intend to act, the second force appears, which is the resistance. These
are the first two notes of the scale, Do and Re.
Most of the time (we will use, for an example, studying this kind of teaching) we become inspired and interested, that is the note Do, the first
force. So we become very enthusiastic. We begin to study, to read, to go to class, to do all the things that our religion invites us to do. But
then we immediately are confronted by the resistance, which the first force conjures. It is natural; it is a law of nature; it is unavoidable. If
you begin an activity, an opposing force will appear-that is the way nature works. So for most people, not being aware of the third force, they stop.
"It is too hard. I cannot do it. It is too much." Many students approach Gnosis and have this experience. They begin to study and try to
practice, but the resistance appears. The resistance is their own ego. The resistance is the egos of other people. We have to utilize the third
force, the third factor, the Arcanum Three...
Speaking of which:
The Pyramid is a symbol of Primitive or Primordial Masonry.
This is not necessarily to be confused with the modern institution of Freemasonry.
Obviously the Pyramids were built by the AEthiopian/Kemetian(and some say Atlantean) Master Builders.
And yes, some Zionists(such the Rothschilds) have joined the ranks of modern Masonry.
Members of the White Lodge and the Black Lodge(Zionism) belong to the external Fraternity.
This is how it's always been ever since the end of the Satya Yuga.
If one wants to gain knowledge, and they meet the requirements to join a Lodge, then like I said; so what?
The modern Lodges are just a platform.
One can ascend, fall, or remain stagnant by what they do with the knowledge.
Unfortunately, the modern Lodges exclude the Priestess(Co-Masonry doesn't really count here), and this is something that will keep many Masonic
Brothers stagnant(we need All Three Forces for our internal development, remember?)
They should have listened to Cagliostro.
