What is the significence of the letter M.
The letter M is a reflection of the number 1 through an axis, hence it is equal to the number 11 just like the letter W.
11 is the number of dimensions of space in this reality or matrix and thus it is referred as a master number because it is the mathematical basis of
the existence of the three-dimensional universe we perceive.
What is the relationship between the Masonic Compass and Square symbol and the number 11(eleven)?

I dont know what 11 has to do with it, but i assume the "G" stands for Google... :p
The square is based on the 10 digit numerical system. The 11th value spot is the shared value of two sides in the middle of the tool, and so 11 is
actually 10 not 11. To calculate a standard unit system of measurement you simply add the value of two to each segment of full length 2 4 6 8 etc.
It's easier than going 12 24 36 48 a Babylonian system seen on clocks and used as a standard units of weights and measurements in the United States.
This is why Roman stone cutting arts were mainly cut in segments of 5 units. 5x5x5 made a square block "It's a square deal" ;-). This is because
making calculations in how many blocks needed for an arch or a wall could be calculated easily. 10 20 30 40 vs 12 24 36 48 . Less calculation
complications meant less chance for errors and easier to train more talent in the stone cutting arts. Shorter learning curves and faster proficiencies
Now the Masons simply adopted these symbols into their guild because it was part of their trade which their guild wanted to keep proprietary. (a
guild, a trade secrets union designed to control the market demanding their skills, so the Masons started as a cartel of skilled tradesmen) Later
came the mix in of Egyptian mysticism with their own set of numbers and meaning behind them. Units of eights equate truth, a pyramid. Eight tingles
in a pyramid like these> I\ /I\. Then you get into chevrons, a double parallel grams etc. But Roman trades and Egyptian mysticism have nothing to do
with each other other than the stone trades of both empires built both empires like oil and it's chemistry has built ours today trades. Both Egypt
and Rome kept their stone cutting secret as it held the keys to how to compromise fortresses much valued by enemies.
The Masons today are simply an opportunity guild to obtain both public an private jobs, job advancements, in places of employment who honor Masonic
Same in the business community.
Lets say a non Masonic developer wants to develop an apartment building, and I need a zoning change to allow multi unit dwellings for the property.
The city elders who are Masonic deny his or her request. Then they alert a Masonic developer to the opportunity and push through his or her needed
zoning change. Masonic folks are community activists so they maintain controls on opportunities, but that's mostly bypassed in most areas with
bribes through campaign contributions and soft money, supper PACs, employment opportunities offered to political family members, maybe award a private
scholarship to their kids, etc.
The Masons hate Super PACs. Super PACs undermines their grip on the mechanisms of capital opportunities. like one does not need to be a Mason to build
a bridge anymore. No bid contracts go to major Super PAC contributors.
So the secret traditions of the Masonic way of life to create a I pull you up then you pull be up on the shoots and latter game of life is quite
obsolete, and thus the number 11 is too with no need anymore to be mysterious. Masonry is utterly worthless today with little to no benefit to it's
