TWO THINGS: Either you are a Mason fishing for precious knowledge about Masonry, or, a curious skeptic snooping around for additional information on the oldest, largest and most controversial organization in the planet.
Either way, the time you have taken to visit this website is highly valued, and, therefore, I thank you. This site, however, is totally different from the rest that you have seen. How different? Well, Let’s see.
My foremost desire here is absolutely simple: that is, to provide an avenue for all Masons to further their studies about the Craft.
By taking the responsibility of collating the valuable literatures existing for centuries, this site desires to make those volumes of precious informations available to the brethren — in a click of a button — whose unquenchable lust for theosophical wisdom is unfathomable. Many great luminaries and celebrated patrons of this Brotherhood credited their enlightenment to these rare and antique writings.
Likewise, I intend to increase the awareness of “non-Masons” many of whom are confused by so many myths surrounding our Fraternity. When they see the truths unveiled, they will finally be able to free themselves from the lies concocted by our skeptics, which all seem to be so real yet far from being such.
Lastly, to tackle the issues currently confounding many members in different Lodges is also a concern of equal importance and must be dealt with promptly. By providing a virtual location for the timid to speak their minds, for the disgruntled (if there is any) to vent out their discontent and for the knowledgeable to share their wisdom, I firmly believe that we can further solidify the cement of that Brotherly Love which we are solemnly taught to spread and propagate.
The promise here is that your effort will not be wasted. Let me, therefore, give you a quick tour of what you can find on this blog:

Thank you for your time.
May the blessings of Heaven rest upon us and all regular Masons. May Brotherly Love prevail and every moral and social virtue cements us.
So mote it be!
