The Tesla Brotherhood
The Tesla Brotherhood
Knowledge is indeed a precious thing, but of all the drugs knowledge is the most addictive because more you have and more you feel dissatisfied with it. The Tesla Brotherhood is the heretic offspring of a contemplative secret society of the ancient times called “Etaireia”(brotherhood). At the beginning the aim of the Brotherhood was to control the scientific and intellectual development of human kind, being afraid of the unpredictable changes that any technological advancement could bring into the social and political order. It was a sect composed by philosophers, legislators, priests and poets that left just a few glimpses of their wisdom sparkle in the public domain. So it was until the introduction of Tesla into the Brotherhood. He dreamed about a “Reverbaration-State”, a condition in which every discoveries would bring an immediate impact upon the totality of the Scientific System thus creating a constant and ever-changing transformation of scientific paradigms. His heretic ideas were able to seduce, day after day, all the members of the Brotherhood until the entire secret society was re-created in order to match the new ambitious purpose.

Hierarchy: The Tesla Brotherhood is organized in chapters, each chapter has its unique and specific field of research (i.e. The Chapter of Quanta, The Electro-Magnetic Chapter of Discontinuity), each chapter is led by a “Mastermind”, often when a Brother rise to this high status he choses a title that represent his skills and his interests (for example: Omni-data Human Analyzer, Mainframe Dweller and so on). The activities of every chapters are coordinated by the “Truth Overseer”, who trusts the advices of an elite group composed by the best “Masterminds” the so-called: “Metaphysicists’ Council”. The competition inside the Brotherhood after the binary-transfiguration of Tesla into the “Absolute Software” is becoming day-by-day more intense, nowadays the role of Truth Overseer is vacant and his responsibilities are managed by the Truth Overseer.
