    It was this text I was referring to. http://observingthecraft.com/ATimeWithPatience.pdf
    And in there he quotes the expose "Jachin and Boaz" as a good example of older sourcing strongly hinting at the existence of a COR back in the 1700s.

    Yes, that paper was taken from the notes he amassed for the book I linked above.

    Thanks. That is a commonly known expose. That description is not in my experience the same as the chamber of reflection at issue here. Indeed, this is much the same as done in Utah and other jurisdictions.

    So your not talking about the historical Chamber of Reflection that we are (and Hammer)?

    Let me rephrase. I haven’t seen the the CoR of the AASR and KT used in the ancient ritual craft lodge, that is, I’ve not seen evidence of documents written, objects or symbols to reflect upon, used in the ancient craft lodge.

    I think this captures the discussion about the COR very well, because when exactly is it a COR, and when is it just a preparation room for the candidates to sit in. Do we have to have all the implements? What about just some of them?
