Proclus, Neo-Platonic Masonic Philosopher

Of the great flowering of Greek thought,especially some 2,600 years ago the understandings of Thales, Heraclitus and Pericles are among the many of note. Proclus...Well, maybe he wasn't a mason, since there weren't any, but he was definitely initiated into mystery schools, and is considered one of the last great neo-platonists. The logic of his reason combines mathlike precision applied to metaphysics. Proclus viewed Plato's words, which he considered to be veiled for the uninitiated, line by line in his commentaries. Heres a link to his theology
