The flaming star is the symbol par excellence of the companion, nevertheless this one is only a decoy, it is in the image of the tree which hides the forest. She is for almost all the brothers and sisters the star that guides them, and in this sense, they fall for the trap and get lost on the path.
The flaming star has no existence of its own, it is the illusion that not only spawned it in our minds but that keeps it going for centuries.
The flaming star represents Masonic works from noon to midnight, which only symbolizes half of reality. This half does not represent the thing, but the reflection of the thing. In other words, at this stage we can only polish the mirror so that the image is as sharp as possible, but we cannot in any way modify the image, because it is on a completely different plane.
