Robert W. Sullivan IV, is a philosopher, historian, antiquarian, jurist, theologian, writer, and lawyer, joins us to exposit on the meanings in Freemasonry built upon the Royal Arch of Enoch. Enoch is important to Masonry because the High (or Haute) degree ritual that bears his name, the Royal Arch of Enoch, sees the recovery of the Tetragrammaton thus philosophically ending the “mission statement” of the Blue Lodge. Enoch’s corporeal travels in the afterlife are very esoteric in nature including the gleaning of knowledge from the Watchers which ultimately become the seven liberal arts and sciences (Medieval Quadrivium and Trivium).

In the second segment we analyze the symbolisms embedded in films from “The Wizard of Oz” and “Frankenstein” to “The Truman Show” and “Fight Club”. The consistent threads of hidden meanings serve as metaphors, morality plays, and esoteric concepts that stream through the consciousness of the culture
