|Frequently Asked Questions|
all the questions you send us, our response can be
exactly the one you are waiting for.
But: "The word must go on". Ask us anything
Collections of Articles and workshops of Apprentices and Fellow
is a praiseworthy initiative, which is regrettably going to encourage
and paste. Wouldn’t it be more efficient to offer information
and data sheets
strictly to the Apprentice or the Fellow Craft, so that the Masters
and thoughts are kept authentic?
A: I understand the concern about the copy and paste, but in supervised workshops, SS are going to know the contents of the Collections.
It would thus be necessary to have a lot of nerve to do so. It would be very risky and would be subject to many conflicts. I think that it is the contrary which is going to happen. The AA\ and the DC\ will not dare.
Nothing of such type has existed before.
It is often difficult for a Warden to lead a workshop. Especially if we have little exposure to the teaching/training.
The idea of "Ways of thought" and "Data sheets" is excellent. Now, it would be good to draft them.
To make Collections with qualitative articles is still a tough goal to achieve. Why not draft some index forms during workshops?
These "Ways of reflection” and "Forms" would be then added to the selection of the available Collections.
Q: Don’t you think it would be necessary to protect the publications of each degree by the password suited to the Grade?
Q: I am quite shocked that the access to the publications does not require a password
A: In the published articles, there are:
- The ones that are free for use on the Internet. The link at the top of each article gives referral to the website from which it was taken.
- The articles received by TheDebhir.com are collected to be published without Password and those who send them are well-aware of that Furthermore, it is said that the FM do live with secrets! To publish and secure with a Password, and moreover separately sorting based on the Grade, would prove our detractors right.
By publishing freely our works, we prove them wrong.
Q: ...we work on emulation and thus there are no "Articles" in this Rite, we present a "work"; which is somehow less complex than an "Article".
A: All the works are welcome.
Q: ...some lazy FM\ can be
tempted to come and draw from the website, the work they ought to do
Q: Articles that we create here are in Spanish, would those be considered by you? Will they be accepted?
A: We have not yet planned to publish in Spanish, but everything has to start somewhere. Simply, to begin we would need the translation of the titles to choose "Keywords".
Q: Articles exposed in the
Lodge should be
kept “inside its walls”.
Q: Certain articles do not qualify
for publishing. Then what?
articles will allow
someone to use that information for their own presentation...
Q: Wouldn’t it be wiser to leave free access only to the works of the 1st Degree? The rest to be password protected.
A: A large number of documents are reachable freely in bookshops/libraries. Most are of different categories: intellectual, psychological, of thoughts, etc. much above our actual/present knowledge. If we find some publications to be too difficult/ complex to understand, we can always limit/remove the access to them.
Q: What about when the works of the Masters and those of Fellow Crafts and Apprentices are mixed together?
A: I personally compare the works of my Masters, as stones on which I am going to be able to build something of my own,but also as lights that guide me on my way.
Q: ...I would well agree to publish my articles, but with a "Password". Is this possible?
A: Due to many requests in this domain, we plan that FM\ wishing so, can publish his works with a "Password" attached. For each Degree, the free part will stay as it is today. A part with "Password" for every Grade will be integrated soon.
Q: The Freemasonry is not a school or a faculty for exhibiting our knowledge...
A: The website does not exist to exhibit any knowledge. Articles are published anonymously and are there simply to enlighten on specific subjects.
Q: The FM... it is a personal initiative and it requires a personal research/approach...
A: In order to succeed in something, you have to build a strong foundation for it, and how can you do that if there is no initial source/Light to guide you? Therefore, having a common ground and some details of that experience from other Brothers do indeed benefit you.”
Q:..to let Apprentices and Fellow Crafts read articles of higher degrees is not normal/unacceptable...
A: The specialized bookshops actually already offer the possibility of acquiring works of any Degrees, and nobody finds it improper.
