From the symbolical and traditional evidence in Masonry itself, is that from the beginnings of all stages of human enlightenment and knowledge man has looked up to some superior being as the focal point of his religious perception. It is further hoped that the thoughtful reader perceive that, as the three Craft degrees symbolize the three principal stages of human life -- youth, manhood and old-age -- in its development, both physically and spiritually, the institution of Freemasonry has passed through these stages of development. Finally, that in speculative Masonry, symbolizing the period of old-age, it attains to the highest of all spiritual traditions, which is, “That Temple not made with hands, eternal in the heavens,” or the “Spiritual Temple” which also rests upon that basic foundation of eternal verity on which all men can agree and build, and in which all men are brothers.
