"I haven't here in front of me. And I was very lucky to grab one of the very last copies. If i'm. Few months only, and I think the other book I from two thousand three he said he's out of print to we set. Correct. Yeah. They're both pretty rare until the second one is very row at this point, though, there is a chance that it will be re released. Maybe an updated version expanded version some point I'm glad to hear that because I really like it very much, and I I wasn't lucky enough to to grab a copy. But this foundation of the Westminster relation I do really enjoy reading it and would be great. If it came back onto the market for our listeners to get a copy for you. I would like to jump on the subtitle of that because you just also said well, western esoteric tradition. The you are a freemason and eyesight. You know, what you just said if one can call that western Terry tradition and here. Hear you speak about it being foundation. So. How would you position freemasonry in general within or without due west Resita tradition? Well, if we can be blunt, so the the term western esoteric tradition has become a kind of euphemism for the cold, right? Yes. I mean, that's what people are talking about. They just don't want to say. But so I would say that the freemasonry is not a cold because I think the a cultism I understand it correctly is largely about let's say the manipulation of forces or gaining something by the supernatural world in some sense trying to change things especially in the environment, perhaps which is not to say that there's not as mystical site to to a coach's them. But I think that that's malware, the code is focused. I. At least and maybe other other aspects as well such as the entering some kind of ultra state of consciousness to gain knowledge of of the supernatural knowledge of events that that have pasta, maybe the future or something like that. Whereas I don't think that's freemasonry is about it'll. And I think you would be pushed to make that clay match. But freemasonry Sunday has a has influenced westernise, oh, Tara schism or cultism medicine and Rosa Cruzan ISM. Suddenly having -fluenced some aspects of freemasonry. Untangle that freemasonry. Show. Many of your listeners will know just by what many people may claim freemasonry emerged out of the stonemasons guild in Great Britain, the beginning more or less of the eighteenth century and the stonemasons guild itself is interesting because it it definitely has a history of several hundred years going back to roughly around fourteen hundred eighty a having a son mythology attaining to stone masonry, which in itself is is quite bazaar mentions. Me's two pillows various other things which are not. I don't think they're they're a cult. But it's it's a mythology of its time. The basically explains the house that masonry came to the west, and what it's in a way, what its metaphysical foundation might be will though the pretty wouldn't have used the word like that. But it's a free freemason was. Based on something not just on sort of a guild meeting. The stonemasons prior to the imagine freemasonry also had some kind of initiation ritual sunny a lot simpler than that of the freemasons. But the freemasons as the developed distinct from the Masons guild. The elaborated the ritual created as you know, the the three foundation degrees as we the of craft freemasonry and then sprints year the Europeans, especially the French. And Germans begins who Rian topper freemasonry into say that. No it wasn't from England. And it wasn't from the stonemasons Bill that it was in fact transported to from. From the yeast by the crusader knights older came from the outcome. Myst- him from her medicine from Rosa cruises and later on from ancient Egypt, and then later on in the nineteenth century, you still getting more and more theories, and an almost everything I think as being a -scribed to the origins of freemasonry lesson less convincingly, even even today, or you more recently, you know, sufism sometimes now as your agenda freemasonry. And the reason for that is we are more interested in sufism today than we were in sufism fifty years ago or hundred years ago. So in a way, freemasonry let's say from the eighteen hundreds all the way through to today. Kind of absorbed. The let's say maybe over a dignified would but an appropriate one. The fashions within the world of alternative or underground, spirituality. And in a certain sense has become a kind of record of them. So in the in the quote, unquote, higher degrees of freemasonry, those come off to the degree or master Mason degree, you can't you can detect other influences. So you know, the in the Scottish, right? You have the eighteenth degree of rose qua-, which is, you know, transparently influence by rose accretion ISM symbolism and outcome symbolism as one of those Roman Catholic liturgy is while then then the, you know, the other rights many of them not recognized as legitimate by. What we might goal. Regular freemasons. So you know, such as Memphis amazed, misery AM numerous other rights out the Inc. We'll kinds of material one of the rights of Memphis, misery him because we were being several versions the one of them that you even drew on north mythology and to the end of this is in a ritual cool to the night of Scandinavia and at the end of that initiation. The the initial is given a Scifo which is one of the rue Nick Halfa bets. So. It's it became this very collective thing. Most of these rights as I say, we're not recognize but regular freemasonry though. Some of some of them are a practice by regular freemason such as the Scottish, right and the quote, unquote, your cry which is the Royal lodge and the order of the temple the so-called knights Templar degree, which doesn't go back to the knights. Templars Lleida innovation sa- freemasonry drew in a lot of different influences. For example, the unit the outcome on the medic. But it doesn't it doesn't say you should now practice alchemy whether the Camis laboratory alchemy or whether it's in Tana while me of generating circulating angle trying to ah code avait subtle energy in the body. It didn't say that. It doesn't provide any instructions doing that freemasonry in a way is kind of curious thing by itself. It's definitely close to other guilds other guilds such as the companions of FRANZ, which along defunct, but retains a kind of memory on the sudden esoteric traditions and the an of those the traditions of the stonemasons as well. Which is I think something completely unique this unique developed over hundreds of years as an enclosed guild. Whereas I don't think you can say that about anything else in westernise terrorism because even alchemy it wasn't it wasn't that that was one gills where it will developed over a period of hundreds of years, you know, it was different different people doing different things all over will of European Europe. So I would distinguish it from western Esa tourism are coaches in that regard. But nevertheless, you know, most most at least lead to mid mid twentieth century occultist of any of any note, but in even nineteenth century Colt of any note, all of them were freemasons, and and symbolism and pass more importantly, in many cases, they took the ritual structure, and I'm built things around to a new fused it with with the rooms of teachings in a way all teachings that they go from elsewhere and. You know, I think that's one of the things that people don't quite grasp about freemasonry, you you can't really take. The let's say the Catholic mass and poodle kinds of things in the you can take because you know, that might be considered blasphemy and of at UBS, but you consignee take the masonic ritual, which is kind of format, right? I'm put put other things in it in the same way the books on completely different subjects with completely opposing views. Basically use the same full mouth. Let's say, you know, table of contents chapters an index into innocence sense once you strip down the masonic ritual. That's what you get. You get you get a full mouth or skeleton that you can then that you can sort of build up again in your own image. And that's what many people did it might be called blasphemous, but ninety grand lodge of England. But. Maybe
