    Freemasonry, Rosecrucians and the destruction of science

    For some reaons higher level, initiated masons don't want their lower level brothers to know the origins of freemsonry.
    Freemasonry was founded in the 17th century, when Amsterdam was the opium and money centre of the "civilised" world.

    In the 9th century, King Pepin of Italy, son of Charlemagne King of the Franks, tried unsuccessfully to conquer Charlemagne's enemy Venice.
    This of course doesn't mean that Venice was still the enemy of the Carolingians in the 13th and following centuries, but that is apparently the conclusion of the Larouchians.

    In the 13th century, the Venetians were at their top of military power and aimed to create a new Roman Empire with Venice at its centre . They expanded into the Italian mainland, Greek islands, and the Black Sea. They helped to defeat the Hohenstaufen rulers of Germany and Italy.
    Venetian intelligence assisted Genghis Khan in his brutal campaign against powers that resisted Venice.
    Later, after a series of wars Venice and Genoa joined forces.

    The Venetian bankers (a.k.a. Lombards) looted Europe through usurious loans. In the years after 1255, Henry III of England became insolvent after getting Lombard loans at 120-180% interest to fight foreign wars . These loans started the Venetian Party in England.
    When the Lombard bankers went bankrupt because the English didn't pay, a collapse of the European economy followed and the Black Plague that depopulated the continent. In the midst of the chaos, the Venetians encouraged their ally Edward III of England, to wage war against France (the Hundred Years War 1339-1453), and found the Most Noble Order of the Garter (around 1348).

    While Venice had always been the enemies of science, Paolo Sarpi realised that the Venetians must now present themselves as the great champions of science, to seize control, corrupt and ultimately destroy the scientific community from the inside, through Aristotelian formalism and sense certainty.

    Sarpi sponsored and directed the career of Galileo Galilei, who was used for a counterattack against the Platonic method of Johannes Kepler.
    The supposed founder of Physics, Isaac Newton’s main interest was alchemy. His sources were kooks like Elias Ashmole, the Rosicrucian leader of British speculative Freemasonry:

    The following has more information on how the Venetians created Freemasonry in England.
    In 1616, the Protestant-Anglican royal marriage of James I's daughter to the Elector of Palatine was the talk of England. For Venice, a significant counterweight to the Habsburgs.

    Also in 1616, the first Rosicrucian tract - the "Fama'' - is written, calling for the formation of a Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross. It is not too distant from what Sarpi's friend, Francis Bacon, is calling for. Shortly thereafter, another Rosicrucian document - the "Confession'' - is published.
    Both written in German and circulated in the territory of the Elector of Palatine.

    This is followed by several other Rosicrucian documents, all claiming to have solved the riddle of the relationship between the microcosm and the macrocosm.
    One of these books was written by Robert Fludd, who is attacked by Kepler as a mystic who uses numbers as a form of kabalistic symbolism.

    The beginning of the Long Parliament and a series of meetings in England, in 1640, led to the creation of the British Royal Society. Robert Moray in Edinburgh in 1641 is the first recorded induction into the Freemasons, quickly followed by Elias Ashmole. Both Ashmole and Moray were founding members of the British Royal Society.
    The other major explicitly Rosicrucian figure was Isaac Newton, who had copies of both the Fama and the Confessio in his library.

    Historian Frances Yates quotes one De Quincey:
    Freemasonry is neither more nor less than Rosicrucianism as modified by those who transplanted it in England, whence it was re-exported to the other countries of Europe.
    An announcement for one of the Freemason meetings in 1676 reads:
    To give notice that the Modern Green-ribboned Cabal, together with the ancient brotherhood of the Rosy Cross: the Hermetic Adepti and the company of Accepted Masons...

    The last is a much longer article, whose main value for me is that it doesn't come from LaRouche, and independently confirms the LaRouche information...

    According to John Robinson, all of the original members of the Royal Society were Freemasons, with Rosicrucian elements.

    Metaphorically Rosicrucians were Rose Cross men - men who used Bacon's discovery device (which has a compass design in the plays) to make the metaphoric voyage beyond the pillars of Hercules in search of the New World of the sciences.
    Freemasonry society. In Bacon's time it was a true secret society.

    The Temple of Solomon of Freemasonry is a model of the universe. The compass with the Rosicrucian rose is a metaphoric model of the world. Both are built into the First Folio, with its design of the 32 directions of the compass, and the 36 decans of the zodiac.

    The Rosicrucian Fraternity was designed as a metaphoric complement to the Freemason Society (or vice versa).
    There is a close affinity with the New Atlantis - the land of the Rosicrucians:

    Lightbulb The Masonic Character of Brading Roman Villa (Isle of Wight) AD 395

    The Masonic Character of Brading Roman Villa (Isle of Wight) AD 395

    Brading Roman Villa on the Isle of Wight was re-discovered in 1879 by chance and good fortune.

    The Roman 2nd Augusta Legion under Vespasian conquered the Isle of Wight in 44CE. The first simple villa at Brading dates from the mid-1st century but, over the next hundred years, it developed into a large and impressive stone-built villa around three sides of a central courtyard. Its luxurious rooms contained many fine Roman mosaics.

    Around AD340, Brading Villa, like many estates in southern Britain, was suffering frequent pirate raids. However, Roman coins excavated at the site indicate that Brading was still occupied until AD395, when Emperor Honorius began his reign. It is believed that the Villa fell into disuse around the 5th century. Undergrowth covered the site, and when the land was cleared to be used for agriculture in 1879, the location of Brading Roman Villa was re-discovered.

    The Roman Villa at Brading includes some very high quality mosaics featuring subject matter including:

    i) Orpheus
    ii) Medusa
    iii) Bacchus the Roman God of Wine
    iv) Ceres and Triptolemus
    v) Achilles or Apollo (panel damaged)
    vi) Lycurgus
    vii) The Four Winds (Aquilo the West Wind, Zephyrus the South Wind, Euros the East Wind and Boreus the North Wind)
    viii) Attis and Sagaritis
    ix) Cadmus and Draco
    x) Orion
    xi) Perseus and Andromeda
    xii) The Four Seasons
    xiii) Hipparchus the Astrologer
    xiv) A large expanse of checkered floor with an Easterly aspect

    The alignment of the villa and the checkered floor is also reminiscent of a ‘House of the Rising Sun’.

    Analysis of the Masonic nature of Brading Roman Villa was undertaken by Freemason W.Bro.Col J.F.Crease in 1890, approximately 11 years after the villa’s re-discovery.

    The book is titled ‘The Masonic character of the Roman villa at Morton, I.W. / by J.F. Crease. (Ars Quatuar Coronatorum. March 7, 1890)’ and a copy is held in the Royal Collection Trust.

    Freemasonry was founded in the 17th century but of course the meaning of all of these symbols is much older.
    It's very difficult to find out what all of these symbols mean. For a good starting point you need to trace their origins back to ancient religions (before the Greeks).

    For me at this time the most interesting links to investigate (in trying to understand masonic symbolism), are:
    Baal (which was a huge influence on the Christmas celebration).
    Kabbalah (often described as Jewish mysticism).

    Maybe you like the following 1928 book.
    It reads more like an encyclopedia than a comprehensive book...

    Kabbalism has influenced alchemy, Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry.
    The simple Kabbalism of the first centuries after Jesus Christ has evolved into an elaborate theological system, which has since become next to impossible to comprehend.

    The Chaldean god Baal was often called Baal-Zebul (a.k.a. Baalzebub or Beelzebub).
    The word zebub means fly. Beelzebub was ridiculed by the Jews as Lord of the Flies.

    See the following masonic apron, with:
    Compass and square;
    Trowel, mallet and trestleboad;
    Rough and trued ashlars;
    Pyramids and hills of Lebanon;

    Pillars, Temple, and checkerboard floor;
    Blazing star and tools of the Craft;
    Acacia branch with seven sprigs;
    Skull and cross bones.

    According to De Quincey, Robert Fludd (a.k.a. Robertus de Fluctibus) is THE founding father of Freemasonry.
    According to Edward Waite, Fludd even surpassed his master Paracelsus.

    Lucifer is the greatest mystery of symbolism. Lucifer is represented by the number 741.
    The secret knowledge of the Rosicrucians concerning Lucifer is a carefully guarded secret.

    In Phrygia there existed a culy dedicated to another Savior-God, Atys or Attis (probably synonymous with Adonis). Atys was born at midnight on 24 December. The symbolism of the Christmas tree comes from the rites of Atys (according to Hall, @Firestarter doubts this)
    After he died under a pine tree, Atys imparted his immortality to the tree beneath which he died. The Great Mother (Cybele), took his body to a cave where it remained without decaying. She also took the tree with her.
    Atys remained 3 days in the tomb, rose upon Easter morn, and by his resurrection overcame death for all who were initiated into his Mysteries.

    In 1730 or 1731, Benjamin Franklin was initiated into the local Masonic lodge. Since then, Franklin in his articles for the Gazette praised Freemasonry in America. These writings are sometimes referred to as the beginning of Freemasonry in the USA.
    Franklin remained a Freemason for the rest of his life.

    See Benjamin Franklin pictured as a freemason (at the Loge des Neuf Soeurs in Paris?).

    In 1734, Benjamin Franklin became a grand master in Pennsylvania, and published the first Masonic book in the Americas (James Anderson's Constitutions of the Free-Masons).
    From 1735 to 1738, Franklin was secretary of St. John's Lodge in Philadelphia.

    In 1760, Benjamin Franklin was elected as Provincial Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England.
    When Franklin was sent to France as an ambassador for the US, he became affiliated with the French Masonic Lodges. In 1777, he entered the “Loge des Neuf Soeurs” of Paris, and in 1778 assisted in Voltaire’s initiation into this lodge:

    There are several reasons to suspect that "hero" of the American War for Independence, Benjamin Franklin was a British double agent all along.

    From the mid 1750s to the mid 1770s, Benjamin Franklin spent much time in London, meeting the English elite, and even went to meetings of Sir Francis Dashwood‘s notorious Hellfire Club. Records of membership of the Hellfire Club were burned in 1774, so it isn't certain that Franklin was also a member.
    The Hellfire Club's members were known as the Knights of St. Francis of Wycombe. British Intelligence also held meetings at the same Wycombe where Hellfire came together.

    Francis Dashwood was educated at Eton College where he became associated with William Pitt the Elder (whose son John Pitt, 2nd Earl of Chatham became a KG in 1790). Pitt and John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich (whose family counts many Knights of the Garter) were also accused to have been members of a Hellfire Club (that met at the George and Vulture Inn throughout the 1730s).
    Francis Dashwood later became British Chancellor of the Exchequer and Postmaster General.

    Toward the middle of the nineteenth century, Lord le Despencer’s illegitimate daughter, Rachel Antonina Lee, claimed that her father would often raise a toast to "Brother Benjamin of Cookham, who remained our friend and secret ally all the time he was in the enemy camp".
    Rachel explained that "Brother Benjamin" was Franklin, who "sent intelligence to London by devious routes, through Ireland, by courier from France and through a number of noble personages in various country houses".

    During the war, Franklin continued to correspond with his associates in England, including Lord Shelburne (KG in 1782), Thomas Walpole (whose uncle Robert Walpole became a KG in 1726), Lord Camden (which one?), Thomas Wharton and John Williams.
    Comte de Vergennes' plans for war with England were frustrated because every move by the Americans in Paris was known to the English Ambassador, Lord Stormont. This wasn't very surprising because inside the US Embassy was a cell of British Intelligence, organised by the Ambassador’s chief assistant Edward Bancroft (who King George III referred to as a double agent).
    For some reason Franklin refused to investigate espionage charges against Bancroft and instead brought charges against the man who had accused Bancroft.

    Benjamin Franklin became part of the British Royal Society in 1756.
    Franklin was also honoured by the Universities of Yale, Harvard, Oxford and Edinburgh:

    Another freemason that became a "hero" of the American revolution is George Washington (US president 1789–1797).
    It isn't really secret, but it could come as quite a shock to learn that through the War of Independence, George Washington was a shareholder in the privately owned British central bank, Bank of England!

    The Continental Congress selected Washington as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. As an appointed military officer, he held an “office ... under the United States” and could not “accept of any ... emolument” from a “foreign State”.
    In other words, General Washington wasn't allowed to accept a “profit, gain, or advantage” from a “foreign state-chartered ... company”, like the Bank of England:

    George Washington became "America's first spymaster" when he directed Major Benjamin Tallmadge to form the Culper Ring to covertly collect information about the British in New York in 1778.
    Maybe to help the British?!?

    During mid-1780, Benedict Arnold started giving secret information to the head of British Secret Service in America John André.
    After he had become a British double agent, Washington made Arnold commander of West Point even though he knew of several incidents of disloyalty by Benedict Arnold. After he was given command, on 21 September, Arnold met André to dicuss plans to take over West Point.

    On 23 September 1780, André was captured by the American armed forces, who discovered the plans.
    Lieutenant Colonel John Jameson sent General George Washington the plans he carried with him (written by Benedict Arnold). Because he wanted Arnold to escape he insisted on sending a warning note to Arnold, so he could escape to the British.

    André was sentenced to death for espionage, but Washington tried to exchange him for Arnold with the British. André was hanged on 2 October 1780.
    Maybe André was simply set up, because he had trashed Benjamin Franklin's house in Philadelphia, when it was occupied by the British. Or maybe he had found out some secrets about Franklin he shouldn't have:

    The London-educated lawyer Joseph Reed, who was adjutant general on Washington’s staff, complained to the army’s second-ranking officer, Maj. Gen. Charles Lee, about George Washington's failings as commander in chief:
