    Any programs you see about freemasonry on history channel, natgeo and the like, assume sensationalism over any amount of factual accuracy. They only want to appeal to the CT crowd.

    That guy was probably Alex Jones. He has made a career of stirring up the conspiracy nuts.

    You have to be a 360 degree mason to know this.

    So those that know about the 360 degree masons are:

    ....360 degree masons and everyone else who has zero masonic affiliation. Us third degree masons had our memory wiped and have no knowledge of such trickery.

    I have heard from another reputable forum that that there is, or was, a legitimate Rite that does in fact have a total of 360 degrees. Whether it is still active or not, I do not know but it it was called something along the lines of The Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis Misraim.

    Memphis-Misraim has 99 through a merging of the two systems. Anyone who mistakes it for legit masonry, such as Alex Jones, is just being willfully ignorant, hah.

    I like it!!!. I imagined a half of a basketball covered in tinfoil. Thanks for the pic. I would have obviously embarrassed myself.

    I take it as metaphorical. Living the lessons full circle. Just before taking each obligation we are told it does not conflict with the duties we owe to a list of four levels of society. Each layer forms a circle of ever expanding relationships - Staying on the square for the duties we owe to all of those circles is an expansion on the duties we owe not a conflict with them.

    I found the episode in question (it's from History channel, no surprise). It's not entirely CT nonsense, but mostly and a lot of hype. If anyone cares to see it, it's free on Amazon prime for prime members. Season 1, ep 2.

    Every Masonic body has a 360o, it's your perimeter of safety and the security of the Fraternity.

    So 360 degree Masons keep the metric system down?
