You know people are short-sighted, with short attention spans, and a need for instant gratification (see Augustus), therefore, without a short, sweet
numbering system, people just don't have the tenacity to ascribe conspiracies to ya'll.
Now, if you were to number your degrees from 69 to 77, then I'm sure a 69th or 77th degree Knight Templar would be far more conspiratorial than a
33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason. It's all in the marketing.
