Sacred space

The requirement of delimiting the “sacred” space wherein the ritual will be performed consequently implies an additional characteristic of Freemasonry and all initiatic societies: secrecy. The latter term however does not indicate actions conduct in the shadows, but rather a need to remain “segregated” from the rest of the world, to confine oneself to a “sacred” space in which to seek contact with a higher dimension, removed from the rest of the world lingering in a state of chaos and instability. It is solely by means of detachment from the cacophony of everyday life that the vertical pathway can be approached.
