First narration:
"The confrontation between the forces of this world, plays itself out in a complex story, of the events that unfold through the many machinations that men create, by their various endeavours, composed of all sorts of intentions. To the public in general, things do not seem to have any particular pattern, nor does there seem to be much meaning behind most events. That for the average person, there is not much significant outside his daily coming and goings. But a careful examination of the interplay of these conflicting forces, reveals complicated, cleverly schemed operation, which displays the actually deeply meaningful course of reality. That life is the conception of a much more sophisticated wisdom than what we had previously envisioned. The following is a humble attempt to expose some of that reality. We are in a particular period in time, when darkness is predominating. Some of what you are about to watch may appear fantastic, but we must remember that our failure to apprehend such matters, is merely the sad fact of underestimating our own selves. We underestimate the potential for good and bad in human beings, because we underestimate ourselves. God created us with an intellect, but we fail to exercise it to its true potential. The capabilities of our intellect lie far beyond what we suspect."

2nd narration:
"The Masonic calendar traditionally dated from 4004 BC; the creation of the universe, Anno Mundi, as computed by Archbishop James Ussher in 1650, This was inserted by Bishop William Lloyd of Winchester as a marginal note in the Great (1701) Edition of the English Bible, where it remained without explanation until 1900 when Cambridge University Press removed it from further editions. By the mid-eighteenth century, masonic usage had shifted to the year of light, Anno Lucis, which dated from 4000 BC. There is no masonic significance to either date, other than a desire by early masonic writers to create as ancient a lineage for Freemasonry as their imaginations would allow. By using the 4000 date, they could claim that their usage predated Ussher's promotion of the theory that Jesus had been born four years earlier than claimed by Dionysius Exiguus, the sixth century creator of the BC-AD time system.

The Masonic date adds four thousand years to the currently accepted origins of the Christian era, or Year of Our Lord. It is less than three centuries off the date given by the Jewish calendar which, in .its present form, dates from the fourth century B.C. and counts the years since 0the creation of the world according to its own reading of the Bible.

This calendar is not accepted everywhere. The masons of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, and in particular those at the grade of Knight Kadosh, use the Hebrew months and a calendar based on Jewish chronology, or anno hebraico, also known as anno mundi. This calender begins in mid-September and adds 3,760 years onto the Gregorian calendar. According to the Masons, the Temple is an image of the world, and the beginning of the world, establishes time. This time is known
as the year of the light, or anno lucis."
