Call in to speak with the host
Brethren, Guests and Visitors,
Let me introduce you to a fellow who developed some interesting ideas that might be helpful to freemasons. His work often sits on the shelf next to the writings of Immanuel Kant, John Locke, Rene Descarte and Thomas Hobbes.- worthwhile readings that nuture an understanding of the human condition.
David Hume, Esq was born in Edinburgh 26 April 1711. I will leave it to you to decide if you agree, he is the most important philosopher ever to write in English but he did make an interesting point, that humans only have knowledge of things they experience directly.
It made me realize I might not be alone; that alot us us might actually want to understand the ingredients of great ideas; the context being important to fullly of deeply understand an idea.
So I had one of those "aha" moments when I was researching this show...about our fraternal order...and this is what I discovered...
---that isolation slows the wheel of progress. Staying connected is where the exchange of friendship draws us out from the safety of our opinions into the lodge where change and improvement occurs.
Too much? I thought so....
Can't wait to have you join us on the next episode of Masonic Home Companion.
It's good to talk.
