Following is a translated extract from a Document addressed to all the Supreme Councils of Scottish Rites of the World by ALBERT PIKE, delivered in Paris October 1885.
"The order demands the immediate enforcement of the D:.M:.J:.. At different epochs of the life of the nations which have the good fortune of possessing an active Supreme Council, and from 1820 onwards, certain similar communications have been make to certain chosen members of the Grand Consistories and Supreme Councils, respectively. It is necessary to give the secret of this order.
"Esoterically D:.M:.J:. are the initials of the motto of the 33 rd degree.
"Esoterically D:.M:.J:. are the initials of the words, Destruction, Materialism, Imposition, which "Impose Destruction of everything which resists Materialism."
"Three points :. mean that the Masonic work is threefold—
of Supernaturalism Destruction of Authority of Anti-Masonic activity of Conscience Materialism of
Education of the State on the Family Imposition on the Nation on Humanity
Consequently the order to enforce practically the D:.M:.J:. is—"By every means, whatever they may be, one must impose first on the Family and then on the Nation in order to achieve the aim of imposing on Humanity."
Following are Mason symbol terms along with the Masonic definitions
TEMPLE — The word temple is derived from the Latin word Tempus, time; and therefore the ancient structures called temples were in reality intended to be records of time and archives of human knowledge. Such institutions would have been a great benefit to mankind, but the veil of superstition was thrown over them; it was deemed politic or profitable to the few to deceive the many; that which should have been a simple record of fact was worked up into allegory; there arose as esoteric doctrine for those initiated in the secrets of the temple, and a deceptive esoteric doctrine for the multitude; and this was the origin of a priesthood.
APRON — The Masonic leather apron does not perpetuate the memory of the apron of the artisan masons of the middle ages. Its origin must be looked for in the attire of the Grand Priest, intended to hide his frontal nudity when he mounted the steps of the altar.
In other words, it corresponds to the linen drawers which according to the prescription of Exodus 28:42, should cover his loins. It represents a sort of symbolic circumcision.
THE WIDOW — Means the Synagogue, also Isis. The Egyptian Fable—Isis. Typhon, having killed Osiris shut him up in a coffin, then, having cut his body into pieces, threw it in the Nile. Isis, the good widow, searching for the body of her husband, found all the parts save one member and to commemorate this loss she instituted the worship of the Phallus, an enlarged representation of which she gave, resting on a coffin. (Sound familiar?)
The term also refers to the Manichaeans, being derived from the legend according to which Manes, the founder of the sect, was assisted by a rich widow.
Also to Henrietta Maria, widow of Charles I, for whose cause the original "Masons" claimed to be working.

THE SCARAB — The Egyptian Beetle; Generation
LOTUS-PADMA The Lotus is a water plant from which each god at his birth emerges. The Lotus is also a symbol of reproduction and generation, the flower of concealment, night, silence, mystery and regarded with nearly the same veneration as the Yoni itself.
The Hindus adore the Lotus for other reasons; for example, because being able to reproduce itself without the assistance of the male pollen, it is a type of the androgynous or hermaphroditic character of the Deity. For the same reason this plant was also held sacred by the Egyptian priests.
THE DOUBLE-HEADED EAGLE The Double-headed Eagle represents an anagram of the Baphomet, the esoteric explanation of which is as follows: Reading Baphomet backwards we get, Tem—oph—ab. Tern is Duplex, Oph is Avis, Ab is generation. Duplex Avis Generation is The Double Bird of Generation.
GRANDE OEUVRE This term supposed by the Uninitiated to mean the quest of the Alchemist's stone; esoterically denotes the act of the male and female which produces offspring. Copulation.
