Those of you familiar with TheLodgeRoom, and its excellent Forum may be aware that Canadian Bro Stephen Dafoe publishes a quarterly Masonic magazine called A Fourth Part of a Circle (ISSN: 1499-8521 - with a cover price of CA$8/US$5.95/UK£3.50). The Premiere Issue (Vol.1 No.1, Spring 2002) has an article named on the front page as The 47th Problem of Euclid & Masonic Mathematics and in the magazine as Pythagorean Symbolism and the Craft.
The mathematically-inclined and PMs among us will need no explanation as to what it's about (oh yeah... the thread to which I'm replying gives it away, too ;D). It's just over 2 printed pages (US Letter format). It's an interesting article, and Stephen still has back issues you can purchase - via Paypal, etc, too. I'm not sure how it works, but Bro Bill may also be able to get them for you.
apart from what is written about his life, just check his name PythagoraS. : 99.8% of the greek classic and modern male names end in 's' such as sofoklis, periklis, thalis, promitheas, giorgos (george), pavlos (paul), stelios, nikos (nick), stratos (for 'stratosphere', mine ;D ) etc. Even olympian gods ended in 's' eg Dias (zeus), Poseidonas (Poseidon), Aris (Ares/mars) etc.
Sorry for the post but i get bored of people misleading the truth of greek history (eg fyrom)
i'm currently reading "The Music of Pythagoras: How an Ancient Brotherhood Cracked the Code of the Universe and Lit the Path from Antiquity to Outer Space".
bold title. so far this is a really great read and lots of wonderful info. not sure yet how much they are going to be discussing Masonry in specific, at least under that name, but i give it my "i'm 50 pages in and two thumbs up so far" recommendation.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
