What mental skills are needed to process information in relationship to Masonry?

On June 22, 2014 at 2:30 P.M. the Masonic Philosophical Society will be hosting a study group at the Santa Cruz Masonic Lodge. In each Meetup a different topic, ranging from philosophy and science to religion and metaphysics, is discussed, debated and related to the principles of Freemasonry. Join us as we study the learning process and its relationship to Freemasonry. In the process of seeking knowledge not based on previous information (which is memory), the brain operates in two very distinct modes: the focused and the diffuse modes. Examples will be shown on how the Freemasonic dramas (allegories and rituals) engage members on both aspects of learning.

This group is open to the public. Both men and women are invited to attend. This group is an opportunity for non-lodge members to learn more about Freemasonry as well as meet local Co-Masons

      I agree. The discussion that Prof. Batalha brought forth was intriguing. Truly a great way to spend the afternoon.

      Bro. Celso presented a thought provoking introduction leading to focused and diffused viewpoints ;-) Thank all for an engaging afternoon of contemplation!

    Professor C. Batalha was very well informed on the subject and his introduction to these new studies to the group was well thought-through and engaging. I learned a lot of new information on how to start using study skills and memory.
