To be educated is to be taught something.
To gain knowlege is to explore the unknown.
My 2 cents.

Masonic symbols - along with many other symbols are for a future thread I am contemplating as images - especially certain ones, can have a very deep, emotional, and subconscious reaction within us.
But that's for another day (If my OCP doesn't pull me in another direction before I get around to writing it!
For now I'm thinking "/thread" was some sort of curse that actually worked.
How did this all end up so twisted?
And the very words that create, and endeavor to make society better suddenly sour... Illumination becomes evil. Hence the Illuminati. In a lust for lost power, evil men stole away from us a word designed to empower us - symbolically trying to trick us into hating our own freedom and empowerment in effigy.
So ATS let us turn their scheme in on itself and let them know that they are just shallow, disempowered and greedy souls, and that WE ARE THE REAL ILLUMINATI! WE are the NEW WORLD ORDER! And THEIR days are numbered. We are the many, they are the few. Now that the light is on, start the search and backtrack just how Gutenberg opened the door - and of the vile men who have, since, tried closing it shut.

I've heard that the Illuminati were similar to the Freemasons, and the Masonic groups took them under their wing, and the Illuminati used their resources to get their legs. Then they decided to take a different tact on the whole "enlightening the world" deal: they decided to rule the world.
That's just one theory though.
