When you think of ancient secret orders, you pretty much come up with two: the Illuminati and the Freemasons. While there’s a lot to be said about the first one, it seems like the Masons have a little more under their belt when it comes to secrets and mysteries. This fraternal order has been around for centuries and are still the worlds largest secret society. While they’re open about their existence, they’re pretty quiet about what they get up to and that is incredibly fascinating to us.
Starting originally as a trade guild for builders in the Middle Ages, it morphed over the centuries into a secret society/social organization with religious orders, symbolism and strict rules. Many major historical figures such as George Washington, Mozart and Mark Twain were members and it’s been rumoured that their influence is what made the world what it is today, But as much as we do know about the order, there’s a lot we don’t – there’s still a lot of secrets hidden in their temples, lodges and texts.
Maybe if we check out some of these kinda secret, but not really any more, Masonic places, we can figure out what some of those secrets are. Then rule the world, of course.
