Does parapsychology play a role in FreeMasonic science?

by Sigwart Frank

If I said to a Brother Mason: "I once, while in "meditation" in my Christian faith, saw in my Mind's eye a Star Crowned Cloud figure, two of them to be precise."


So, would the Brother assume that I was crazy or gifted, or perhaps just stoned? Just wondering what a Brother would say and or do about such a claim with regard to a new Brother.

Freemasons are as similar as snowflakes...

Dear Seeker,

The response you may receive to such a statement would depend on the Brother you said it to. Freemasons come from all walks of life and the fraternity is made up of men of every type. The reasons for being a Freemason run the gamut from a desire of esoteric learning and enlightenment to simply enjoying fraternal fellowship. The common thread that joins all Masons is our belief in God and a sincere wish to be of service to our fellow man. Beyond that common thread Masons are as varied as all men and women throughout the world.

But, while our membership is made up of people of all sorts, individuals tend to gravitate towards those of like mind and interests. You would find men with whom you could share and discuss such experiences, and you would find others who might think you "crazy" or "stoned" simply because their interests lie elsewhere. Over time you would come to know those who are like-minded and with whom you could share meaningful discussion, and perhaps form lifelong friendships. With others you would still share the brotherhood, if not the same interests.

I hope this helps. Thanks for the question and for visiting Masonsmart.

Fraternally,

Tim
