Can Color Theory Serve As A Guide For A More Harmonic Relational Society?
January's topic will be conducted by Brother Dennis Garza on a study of Freemasonry: Can Color Theory Serve As A Guide For A More Harmonic Relational Society? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow. Modern color theory divides the eight primary colors into two categories of six chromatic (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) and two achromatic colors (black and white). It then divides them into two categories of “additive” and “subtractive” colors. If we consider the chromatic additive colors as “yang/masculine” and the chromatic subtractive colors as “yin/feminine," and the two achromatic colors as sums of each, we end up with the eight primary colors in a format that is a perfect representation of the eight trigrams of the I-Ching. Freemasonry attempts to guide the individual into a more harmonious relationship with others through a greater understanding of the self. Can a study of the yin and yang relational aspects of the trigrams in the ancient art of divination known as the I Ching, as seen through the eyes of modern color theory, serve as a guide to a greater understanding of the self, a greater understanding of others, and thus, to a more harmonic relational society? Mission Statement The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
