Default Staunton Chess Set and Freemasonry

If one has enough time and imagination one can prove almost anything.
It is obvious that chess is a war game where one side destroys the other.
It is also self evident that it is either Indian or Persian ie. Asiatic adopted into MittelEU
with kings and queens or vezirs which would be the Ottoman Turk contribution.
None of this ahs **** all to do with Free Masonry.
The term grandmaster is on the other hand suspicious of freimaurer contamination.

The numbers can just as well be chemical organic chemical at that with C carbon atom being 2-8-4 electron orbitals and valence four.
One could also discuss Platonic solids tetrahedron being the obvious choice but also the sphere the cube octahedron as all the same Pythagorean mystic lines and numbers and
proportions reoccur 2- 4- 8 etc.

I fail to see carpenters tools in a pawn but I do see the golden ratio. One can even see Greek gods and Planets as well as elements.

Absolutely no masonic mumbo jumbo about any of these objective real scientific astronomical physical chemical mathematical geometrical facts.
