The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

There have been many references that rituals similar to the masonic rituals of today were performed in the pyramid of Unas located in Saqqara, and the Giant Pyramid of Cheops in Giza, just outside of Cairo.

The degree of perfection in the building of the pyramids, their ability to withstand the rigors of time, and their alignment to celestial as well as earthly edifices allude to the fact the early Egyptians had knowledge that in many instances far exceeds our knowledge even today.

They also brought forth the two pillars of creation. The two columns or pillars represented the upper and lower portions of Egypt. Jachin and Boaz, the pillars of establishment and strength, signify this in masonry.

The two represent stability, which is necessary for a society to survive and prosper.

Maat, also known as Ma’at or Mayet, was a female goddess in the ancient Egyptian religion; she represented truth, justice, balance and morality. The daughter of the Egyptian sun deity Ra and wife of the moon god Thoth, she served a kind of spirit of justice to the Egyptians.

The Masonic Influence on World History

Words of the noted masonic scholar and writer, Albert Pike

The distinction between good and evil is real and not relative. We have free will to distinguish and choose between Moral Truths and evil.

The Egyptians Came From Somewhere

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

Even though the Egyptians are most noted for their pyramids, the legacy of this people goes way beyond their magnificent structures and architecture.

Their culture has influenced mankind since the earliest of times, however, their culture which seems to have sprung out of thin air, in turn had to be influenced by an earlier civilization, possibly the city builders of Sumer.

Their vast knowledge had to come from somewhere, their culture suddenly sprang forth and built tremendous structures that are the marvel even today, it had to come from somewhere to have the knowledge they suddenly displayed.

Ancient Egypt and the Morning Star Venus

Written by Gary Wonning

The Masonic Influence on World History

As time passes more and more is being discovered concerning the ancient craft of Masonry.

The ancients based much of their knowledge and beliefs on astronomy, in particular, Orion, the star Sirius, and the planet Venus.

Even the giant pyramid of Cheops, located on the Egyptian plain, high above Cairo, was constructed in the very same pattern as the three stars in Orion’s belt and certain air chambers in the pyramid point to Venus as it would have been positioned in the sky in earlier times.

The Egyptian hieroglyph for the morning star was the same five-pointed star used to represent the five points of Masonic fellowship in the third degree.

Albert Pike: Moral Truths

The Masonic Influence on World History

The great Masonic philosopher/writer Albert Pike once said:

Moral Truths are absolute, like the principles of Geometry. The permanent real truths said Pythagoras were the laws and constancies perceived or discovered through study and reason. In contrast, said Aristotle, virtue is but the habit or practice of doing the right thing, once it is discovered.

Truth exists, it is for us to discover whether through reason, practice or both.

Freemasonry Has Many Elements That Are Egyptian

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?

The Masonic Influence on World History

Albert Pike; Masonic writer and philoso[pher on proper conduct.

Our impulse is to pursue right conduct, and morality is divinely inspired and originates from Above. This impulse or Inspiration compels us to right conduct and warns us against guilt: right conduct springs out of the nature of things.
