The Masonic Influence on World History

Freemasonry has many elements that are very Egyptian.

Most brethren don’t believe there is a connection between masonry and Egypt beyond just referencing it in the ritual work, but when one investigates further they find many similarities.

The all-seeing eye of Amen-Ra, the pyramids, not to mention the dual pillars and the identical nature of Ma’ at, all of which show similarities to masonry. In reality, masonry mentions many of them in its rituals.

Maat or Ma’at was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice.

Maat was personified as a goddess who regulated the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities who set the order of the universe from chaos at the very moment of creation. Sound familiar?
