G is Grace the Flaming Star is the Torch of Reason. Those who possess this knowledge are indeed Illuminati.
And of all illumination which human reason can give none is comparable to the discovery of what we are our nature our obligations what happiness we are capable of and what are the means of attaining it.
When man lives under government he is fallen his worth is gone and his nature tarnished.
It was the full conviction of this and of what could be done if every man were placed in the office for which he was fitted by nature and a proper education which first suggested to me the plan of Illumination.
