Thus the object of the society is to bring together Freemasons of a philosophical outlook in order that they may afford aid and encouragement to each other in the pursuit of their own studies in the field of philosophy and scholarship in the widest sense. Ultimately, the Society's object is to bring its members a few steps nearer to wisdom and an understanding of the true nature of reality.
Members are encouraged to read original papers or extracts from the works of others and to join in the discussions that arise. Members should be prepared, not only to take part in the Grade Ceremonies, but also to listen and learn and by study and giving to others the results of that study, to take an active part in working out the great problems of life and understanding the wisdom, art, and literature of the ancient world.
The Rosicrucian Fraternity is dedicated mainly to the education of spiritual, philosophical and ethical truths of the highest level.
Members have research and presented papers on diverse subjects including Number Symbolism, Alchemy, Artificial Intelligence, and Shamanism, as will as biographies or eminent philosophers of Science, Esotericism and Mysticism.
The Society is organised in three order with nine grades, each having its own appropriate ritual and lectures,. Grades I to III are considered “Learners”, IV to VII as “teachers” and VIII & IX as “rulers”.
