Beatles, More Sgt Pepper's Masonic Initiation Clues


Hand of the Mysteries

The alchemical symbol of apotheosis, the transformation of man into god, is traditionally represented by an image of a hand with other symbols, including skulls, crowns, stars, fish, keys, lanterns, astrological symbols and the all-seeing eye.

The Hand of the Mysteries goes by many other names, including the Hand of the Master Mason, Hand of the Philosopher, and the Emblematic Hand of Mysteries.

It is said that the hand holds the keys to divinity, and is used as an invitation to discover the ‘great secrets.’


Besides its alchemical and Qabbalistic meanings, the figure symbolizes the hand of a Master Mason with which he "raises" the martyred Builder of the Divine House, so in this case Issy Bonn - a Hebrew comedian - represents the Master Mason and McCartney represents Hiram Abiff, the matyred Builder, being resurrected from the dead.

You're holding me down (Oh Oh)
Turning me round(Oh Oh).....

You gave me the word, I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can
