    The author argues that the 'art' of freemasonry is 'coeval with the creation of the world, when the great and glorious architect of the universe, upon masonic principles, formed from chaos this beauteous globe, and commanded that master science, geometry, to lay the rule for the planetary orbs, and to regulate, by its unerring laws, the motions of that stupendous system in just proportion, rolling round the central sun' (308).
