Many people regard this moment as the most crucial, the most poignant moment in the initiation ceremony, if not in the whole masonic experience. The aspirant answers ‘Light’, and in this seems to be encapsulated his longing for the light of knowledge, of truth, in himself. But before we study the answer, let us look again at the question. Although the book says the first hit was an encyclopedia entry, this definition was actually written by our own Masonic scholars, Arturo de Hoyos and S. Brent Morris, and has been used since by the Scottish Rite Research Society in its annual volume, Heredom. The Initiation in the craft degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite (AASR) is completely different from the ceremonies currently performed by most lodges in the English-speaking world. It draws its symbolism from various esoteric sources, from Alchemy and Cabbala, from Gnosis and Rose-Croix. Light is an important word in the Masonic system. It conveys a far more recondite meaning than it is believed to possess by the generality of readers. It is in fact the first of all the symbols presented to the neophyte, and continues to be presented to him in various modifications throughout all his future progress in his Masonic career.
