360˚ - the Cipher or the Square?
In regards to Freemasonry, many have heard of the Blue Lodge, Master Masons,the Scottish Rite, Shriners, etc. I grew up inspired to learn
about these things,watching a Shriner who lived right across the street. The red fez was nothing newto me (even though I didn’t know what it meant then), & this Original Man sportedit with pride. I remember a few summers
when Shriners, both black & white, fromthe Tripoli Shrine Temple would get the street blocked off so that they could ridearound in the funny little cars, & do whatever other rituals they would do. Butwhat threw me was this: Here’s this man, up in years, in the middle of the ghetto,he & his wife owned a beautiful well-kept house looking straight outta thesuburbs, & NO ONE would DARE touch his property, say something out the way tohim, fight or even sell on his corner, anything! I saw nothing but the utmostrespect shown to him all the years I lived on that block, up til ‘92. Apparentlypeople knew something I didn’t know about what this guy was dealing with. Asthe years went on & I studied, I saw & heard many Masons get favors &advantages because of their membership, still see it nowadays. I once took timeout on a bus stop reaching out to some 13, 14 year-olds on the corner near thePrince Hall Masonic Temple,
& some lodge brothers came out watching. I actedlike I didn’t see ‘em, & kept building...The young brothers walked off after a while,and a couple of lodge brothers started across the street. I don’t know if they werecoming across the street to “warn” or recruit me, but the #12 bus was coming & Ihad a girl to go see, so I’ll never know. What always stood out to me though, wasthe logo that they all carried to identify each other, usually on a ring or the middleof the license plate. It was the G, Compass, & Square. The focus will be on thecompass & the square, and the reasons for their placement, geometrically. Therest, well, history is best qualified to reward all research…
I’ve come across many interpretations over the years as to what this logo
meant,none of them directly from the mouth of a Mason. I pressured a Master Masononce on it, he knew I was 5% & told me I already knew. I respected him forkeeping his oath, & did my own damn thinking…I won’t get too much into the facevalue of it, but instead what I drew out of it, & how I see it in regards to the Nationof Gods & Earths…NO, I’m not saying that we are Masons. And for the record, I’mnot a Mason. That doesn’t stop me from studying them. What I’m saying is that allwe have to do is look in our Supreme Alphabet, Cipher & Square.
It’s said that theG stands for Geometry, so let’s go there…
It’s a common misconception that both the circle and the square have a total of 360˚, not true. The True Square is a polygon, specifically a quadrilateral with 4sides of equal length, & 4 angles of 90˚, totaling 360˚. This is the 20
degree of the Supreme Alphabet, & the Yacub story tells us that Yacub was born 20 milesoutside of Mecca. He could see the Truth of what was going on, not being caughtup in all the hype. He got educated in Mecca (took the best part), & did his ownthing, quite well I might add. He stood on his Truth/Square regardless, & never letit go, Success was the only option. As we can see, the Square is on the bottom of 
the Masonic logo. The Square is meant to be stood on, try being a Square you justmay get trampled…might be better to “square your actions” (the Wisdom you addto the Cipher) & not yourself…
 There’s also part of the Yacub story that says that anything beyond 360˚ isillusion & that he added 6˚ of illusion to reality to get 366˚. Sounds good, andgives an idea of the deception used by his followers to make devil, but again, not True. If this were the case, a large number of polygons could be consideredillusions. Using the formula S = (x-2)(180˚), you can find the number of degrees inany given polygon, from the triangle up. S is the total number of degrees, and x isthe number of sides that said polygon has. An octagon, for example, has 8 sides,so S = (8-2)(180˚) = (6)(180˚) = 1080˚. I’m not always the best example when itcomes to following traffic laws, but a stop sign shaped like an octagon is realnonetheless. Treat it like an illusion @ the wrong time, & you’re bound to find outhow real it is (as real as my last ticket & court date were).A circle is customarily divided into 360˚, when counting those degrees startingfrom the center of the circle. 1 degree can be divided up into 60 minutes, andeach minute divided further into 60 seconds. This is would give a circle thestandard 360˚, 21,600 minutes (21600’), and 1,296,000 seconds (1,296,000”).Here’s where the problem lies:Apply the above formula [S = (x-2)(
180˚)] to a circle to find out how manydegrees it has…I’ll wait…
By definition a circle is not a polygon, so the above formula will not work. Now, Icould get slick & say that the circle has 2 sides, inside & outside. So, we’ll plugthat into the formula with x = 2…
S = (2-2)(180) = (0)(180) = 0˚
 The answer is not 360˚, and the only way to get 360˚ using the above formula is if x = 4. A circle obviously isn’t a quadrilateral, so 4 is a nogo…Yet, if you travelonce around a circle counting by a measure of 1 degree @ a time, you will getback to 0˚. So this could be considered “right”, though definitely not Right ANDExact. 0˚ ≠ 360˚, or it could be said that all quadrilaterals have 0˚. So why is itsaid that a circle has 360˚ then? The above formula does not start in the center of the polygon as it does with thecircle; it measures the degrees of the angles from the perimeter of a polygon. 360measurements of 1˚ will fit perfectly into a circle starting from the center, so itcan be used as a static standard. A circle is not static, though, by nature it’sdynamic, always changing direction. There are an infinite number of tangents ona circle, because a circle has an infinite number of points. By this definition, thenumber of degrees in a circle is actually infinite. This, in my interpretation, is why
the compass is placed not only above the square, but also in front of the square,“circumscribing your desires”, Knowing that you have the Power to Refine them. The same order is kept in the Supreme Alphabet (the Cipher comes above/beforethe Square), in the 1-14 (the Born degree brought them into the cipher, & thesquare cut them off), and twice in the 1-40 (the Qur’an before the Bible, and thecircumference before the square mileage). There may be more places, these areoff the top though. More importantly, what does this have to do with Our Culture?In one word, discipline. To circumscribe your desires, & square off your actions,simply means to be disciplined in your daily life. A circle has implied motion, and asquare implies stability. This has its birth in Speculative Freemasonry, whichlikens the building of temples to building the temple of Man. The origins of Speculative Freemasonry, however, lie in Operative Masonry, the actual Scienceof Building Temples. Do some research on that union & it may give you a betterunderstanding of the future of this Nation, to move from being speculativespectators, to operative operators. This generation, well, we may not be the onesto fulfill, the next few though, SHOULD be more on point. We have to disciplineourselves FIRST, THEN We can teach the Babies to do & be better with thedisciplines that We must Master. Not just repeating Supreme Math, Alphabet &120, but also adding on operative/applied math & science, so that they can buildbeyond 360˚ to infinity. We could use a “Moorish Revival” of Our Own. When I seean Allah School looking like the Tripoli Shrine Temple that I used to walk past (orbetter), I’ll be satisfied
