Perhaps I can comment from an English constitution Mason's perspective, which is perhaps different again...
The reason why English Freemasonry does not have a G in the Square and Compasses is because we see it as a substituted symbol. Our ritual states:
"When our ancient Brethren were in the middle chamber of the Temple, their attention was peculiarly drawn to certain Hebrew characters, here
depicted by the letter G...
Therefore, G is an English translation of the original Hebrew symbols, and does not carry weight as a symbol in itself. This does not mean we don't
reflect on the meaning of the symbol in the second degree, but we do understand it as a substituted symbol for the original Symbols which were in
As a consequence of this, MuzzleFlash's attempts to explain the world in terms of G, which is merely a substituted translation of the original
esoteric Hebrew Symbols, to an English Mason, does seem absurd.
