April's topic will be conducted by Brother Elizabeth Osborne on a study of Freemasonry: Does our short lifespan serve to protect or to harm the environment? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow.
Is death necessary? Do human beings have built-in expiration dates? If we could find ways to significantly extend human life spans or end mortality based on natural aging, disease, and even injuries, perhaps our entire focus would change. Would older, wiser beings be better custodians of our environment? On the other hand, would population growth squander more resources and pollute the planet at quicker rates, leading to the extinction of many species, including our own. From newly-discovered immortal jelly fish to attempts at genetic engineering on human beings and literary themes, come join us as we discuss the effects that extended human life spans might have on individuals, humanity at large, life on this planet, religions and organizations like Freemasonry.
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.
