A New Culture Always Learns from the Past

The Masonic Influence on World History 

Written by Gary Wonning

We learn as we study history, one culture or civilization always learns from the previous, takes the knowledge they have acquired, adds to it, and  a new religion or belief structure is born. Many times giving learned beliefs a new name but carrying on what was known before them.

Even though new thoughts are added, if one digs deep enough, the old philosophies never die, they are eternal and unchanging.

So it was with the new Jewish nation,brought forth by Moses, they took what was known to the Egyptians when they left Egypt and settled in the promised land. Moses grew up as an Egyptian, so he would have known much of their culture. They made it their own, sometimes changing the names to fit their own culture. This has been done since the beginning of time.  Out of it sprang a new culture, ready to assume its identity and make its mark in the world.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.
