Yes it does. The Masons, even the lowly Masons, are told that there's two types. You are told there are those that are enlightened or illumined, and all Masons even up to the 3rd degree become illumined when they 'see the light,' they ask for the light and the blindfold is taken off, and then they're lifted up by the Grand Master with the proper grip and they're now announced to their fellow brothers, their brethren who are also illumined. Then you have the other class who haven't been through these silly rituals are called the 'profane' which means essentially 'those in the dark', 'the commoners'.
