    You are contradicting to yourself, Mr.James, then.
    By sayin' that: "There is no "Secrets" outside The Lodge".

    Did I write that? The hidden mysteries of nature and science surround us from our first breath and beyond our last breath.

    And is Life to be experienced without contradiction? Perhaps there is no Truth, only Life.

    You said: "There is no reality in that proposition".(That Freemasons maybe have "secrets" in Outside Lodge Activities).

    "Freemasons maybe have "secrets" in Outside Lodge Activities" is not the same as "There is no "Secrets" outside The Lodge"

    The first implies that Freemasons have secret activities outside the lodge. The second is a much broader statement about secrets generally.

    My experience is that very few Freemasons have made much progress in discovering the secrets of Life.

    I suspect that you have a somewhat romantic view of the nature of secrets - as if there is powerful knowledge that can be used by otherwise ignorant humans. That is primarily true in limited situations using hardware technology.

    Mr. James!
    Again&again, I'm thanking You, for Your answer!
    But, I think, you misunderstood me!
    I, actually, myself -- cannot understand -- what "secrets" Freemasonry has!

    It's not for you to understand. Hence, that's why it's called a "secret"

    Jefferson Airplane song.

    One pill makes you larger, one pill makes you small. And the ones that Mother gives you, don't do anything at all. Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall ...

    The tale of Alice in Wonderland is good myth because it has many layers of meaning. Fantasy for children. Metaphor and entendre for adults. Questions about the meaning of perception and the reality of dreams. The simulated universe hypothesis. Even the song isn't as shallow as it seems on the surface because it reverses who is who in the perspective.

    Did you read the link?

    There is immediate evidence of one of the hidden mysteries of science, but who, other than a few religionists, takes the slightest interest in what is happening to our world?
