    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Brother Knowledge Seed's thread has sparked many questions for me ... :book:

    Within that thread 360 and 33 degrees are mentioned, and i'm wondering what is a degree?

    What exactly does a degree represent, and is that consistent within each ... 360 and 33 ... ?

    Also, when one is referencing these things, does it automatically mean "occult" ... ?

    Any information to help me better understand will be greatly appreciated.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Destee

    Different meanings from different folks depending on many factors.

    Some will say its based on Supreme Alphabet. 360 degrees of supreme knowledge, wisdom and understanding each which represents 120.

    Others may say 360/4= 90 which is the approximate number of days in each of the four seasons with each season also representing the four corners, four cardinal points and four elements common to western astrology: air, water, fire and earth.

    Others may say 360/12=30 days the 12 representing the 12 tribes of Israel, each of which possesses 30 degrees of knowledge or 1/12th of the Elders mention in the biblical Book of Revelations, etc

    These are just a few of the explanations that you may find yourself searching the vast number of threads on your own house here at Destee.com

    Peace and Love!

    I am sure one brother here has spoken to the 33 degrees as it relates to the position of the Sun.

    In one "society" which I have shared information here the social structure is divided into 11 age grades.

    360/11=32.72 which rounded =33.

    In order to reach this position one must live at least 80 years plus which means full maturity around the age of 88.

    Coming full cycle actually is the cycle of Life, Death and Resurrection or Rebirth.

    And even then there are 5 degrees or 4.25 which represent the full cycle of the sun which in its annual transit is 364.25 days.

    Notice all so far is based on solar cycle yet there is another system more ancient based on the lunar cycle.

    In the mythos concerning Ausar/Osiris it is said he was cut into 14 pieces. Auset/Isis tried to bring him back to life and reconstituted his body minus the phallus.

    This is an allegory to the lunar cycle of 28 days.
    360/28 days =13.02 lunar months. This represents the menstrual cycle since it is a cycle absent the phallus.

    This also represents the number 13 which is of esoteric value as in the 13 constellations which our Sun transits as well as the number 28 which divided by the 7 days equal the four elementals fire,air, water and earth.

    You said any explanation so I hope this helps coming from an "uninitiated elder" who makes no claims of having reached complete or full knowledge.

    In masonry a degree refers to the step an initiate must take to achieve a certain level of competance. There is no 360 degree reference in the masonic order. In spite of many none members insistance, masonry is not a religious order, save one thing. You must believe in GOD to be a member

    If you look again sister Destee did not mention the words Masonry or Freemasonry.

    So....

    The above sounds like the Nations of Gods and Earths, along with The Nation of Islam in some regard (?)

    Supreme Knowledge, Wisdom, and Understanding ... 120 each ... 360 degrees ... okay.

    Supreme Alphabet? What is that? Oh gosh, maybe i need to do a search at destee! :)


    I had no idea that 90 was the approximate days of the four seasons! ... :eeek:

    The four corners? Of what? ... Four Cardinal Points ... never heard of "four cardinal points" ... ??

    Four common elements of western astrology ... ??? ... kinda dates these folk a little ... huh?


    Are these folk more biblically aligned? ... obviously huh ?? ... do they have a name?

    ahhhhhhh ... i'm guessing now ... Black Hebrew Israelites?


    Yes! It's so interesting that such things have been talked about all the years of destee, and i've been here most every day ... totally lost ... :lol:

    One thing i can clearly see, that would quickly have me turn from this ... is that i gotta be able to count! :eeek:

    oh my gosh ... i really had to focus on the words you were saying, get out a calculator, and cipher! ...

    and i'm sure the stuff you're sharing with me is very elementary!

    it takes a few gazillion read-throughs for me to actually get it ... and i still aint got it ... ya know! ... :)

    Thank You Brother O for sharing with me! :grouphug:

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
