I am not a Freemason, but I will tell you all a little secret. The mysteries of God are in this symbol:

This symbol reveals the name of God, and the supreme word of power.

What is the λόγος? λόγος itself is not the word, it is an allusion to a word, and does not reveal the mystery.

I love the strife I receive from all of you. It really brightens my day. Where's that vomiting smile?!

Ah, sometimes I still wish I had my super-administrator status on this board.

"In the beginning was the word" - John1:1

If you memorize the letters, the words are often recognized by their roots:
en - in
arche - beginning
logos - logic, reason, order, word

Thanks so much, Solomon. Maybe I'll eventually work a bit on greek, but right now, I'm working on picking up enough latin to be able make some sense of some older texts. I've been working on memorizing latin words using smart.fm (http://smart.fm).

Thanks to Aleilius, as well for the post. I never would have thought of that. Is the name of God different from the word of power?

Albion, thanks for such an interesting image. I don't know much about the constellations and such, but it reminds me of myself, seeking to identify and separate the round and the straight in my surroundings and within myself. Not just the round and the straight, but other dualistic pairs as well.

The neat thing is that it looks like that beneath the level of action (or perhaps conscious awareness) that the observer/measurer is both perfectly round and perfectly straight at the same time.

What did you take from it?

I believe they are the same.

I'm pretty sure it's okay for me to reveal this secret. The Word of God is AL. A (Aleph) is represented by the square (FYI: the capital letter A looks like a square). L (Lamedh) is represented by the square. From this we can understand the phonetic connection with El, Allah, etc.

Take a moment and intone the Supreme Word: AL. Notice the movements of your mouth, and tongue. Repeat the word, but bring your tongue down from the top of your palate. The result will be "AL-LA." From these we can understand the "battle cry" of a certain religion. I was also able to draw a connection between the slithering tongue of a serpent/snake, and this Word (since a snake's forked tongue travels up & down).

In the beginning was the Word. Indeed, one intones the Word of God when saying the first letter in almost EVERY alphabet: "Aleph."

God is ALL things. The word "all" itself hearkens to the Word.

It's a neat little trick that I realized/flashed upon my mind a few hours before I made this thread. I wanted to share it with all of you, but I suppose nobody really caught on to it. I mentioned it to Seth-Ra in private.

Thanks again ALeilius. Did anyone else see the word AUM in the square and compass? I interpreted the compass as the A, the square as the U. V is U in latin script. Together, both form the M.

Ah, yeah I see what you're saying about AUM. That's also really cool!

Here we see the square shaped a bit more like the letter 'L:'

Cool. I just learned that in Sanscrit, OM means simply solar-fire.

The square and compass is a symbol no different than the star of David. The true mason is balanced with masculine and feminine energies in order to be a master of himself. It is inspired by "as above so below".
