Mosaic art once decorated homes and public buildings across the Mediterranean as far back as the 3rd millennium BCE. Mosaics have been found by archaeologists in far-flung places like Italy, Spain, France, North Africa, Turkey, and Syria. Rather than merely providing aesthetic enjoyment, I believe mosaics were created for a deeper spiritual purpose—as powerful meditation tools (like Eastern “mandalas” and “yantras”) designed to put one into the trance state necessary to awaken higher consciousness. Mosaics—a futuristic science hidden in the ancient past. If you stare at this mysterious Roman mosaic, you´ll notice something “advanced” even “futuristic” about it: Its sacred geometric pattern is intended to put you in a trance—and for good reason.

Richard Cassaro is a journalist, speaker and author of “Written In Stone: Decoding The Secret Masonic Religion Hidden In Gothic Cathedrals And World Architecture.” The book uncovers a lost Wisdom Tradition that was practiced globally in antiquity, found memorialized in pyramids, Triptychs, and identical images worldwide. The central tenets of this tradition have been perpetuated in Western Secret Societies. The most visible of these is the so-called “Masonic Fraternity,” an age-old chivalric Order whose ranks have included Europe’s Gothic cathedral builders and America’s Founding Fathers.
