Ritual masonry teaches that the Greeks were entrusted with the secrets of building and the knowledge of certain mystery schools. They learned from
the Egyptians, but ultimately it was the Greeks that were the holders of knowledge.
When you look into the true philosophy that the scribe Thoth speaks of - It was inherited from a previous time and civilization.
It is difficult to see the wood for the trees often as religious practice took logos as literal.
We see the Greek Hermes - the ongoing version of Thoth and also different gods and goddesses - who were not in fact gods as the western world thinks
of god to be - They represent natural laws - Yet these laws could be seen embodied in living people.
Then we have the Roman gods and goddesses.
Then afterwards the Christian God who is as the one creator in Thoth's writings.
So then original Templar,s
So then Masonic knowledge and their Great Architect of the Universe.
The waters are certainly muddied but Truth is as Truth has always been -
Sciences serve to present more detail.
Yet science is only knowledge and not Wisdom as in the wisdom of Salomon or Jesus or any other enlightened being.
Masonry as far as I can gather.keeps knowledge in ritual form - yet it is by one's own endevour, study or intention that the "Penny will drop" or as
John the Divine is said to have "Got it"
So knowledge is not an end in itself for there is no end to knowledge.
It is a bit like the story of one of the knights in search of the Holy Grail - He leaves his elderly Mother and spends years searching high and low in
his quest - Only to return home and realize all the time he should have
been caring for his Mother.
