Jaime Lamb presents: Archetypal Temple.

In this presentation, Jaime Paul Lamb (re)orients the Freemason as aspeculative Temple builder, thereby situating speculative Temple building as thecentral project of the speculative Craft. He addresses the fractal-like expanse ofthe archetypal images of the Temple on various Hermetic planes while illustratinghow the designs for this metaphysical ladder are inherent in the work of the Craft.

P.D. Newman presents: Presocratic Philosophy and Gérard de Nerval's Hiramic Legend.

An alternative version of Freemasonry’s Hiramic legend, first recorded in Gérard de Nerval’s book,Voyage en Orient (1851), is shown to possess a number of structural and symbolic similarities to a)legends surrounding certain of the Presocratics (most notably, the death of Presocratic philosopher andpoet, Empedokles)and b) De Nerval’s own decline.
