I describe the mysteries of the compass and square, a solid Freemason symbol with lots of interesting themes. Clearly Mormonism has copied this symbol into its own theology, but what did it mean anciently to others anyway? Albert Pike says Freemasonry got many of its symbols and mysteries from ancient Hermetic materials. I look into this.
