It’s been touched on elsewhere already, but it really can’t be overstated that the reason the Virtual Adepts and Sons of Ether split from the Technocracy is only tangentially related to their methodologies. They make for interesting seekings for the less mystically minded.

Sons of Ether – Project Fiction

The Sons of Ether either couldn’t ascensiln didn’t want to adapt to the prevailing paradigm, and so they were ostracized and ultimately left for greener pastures.

Electrical “vibrations” amplitude and frequency are easily variable and allow a scientist to quickly ascertain by successive iterations the correct value of zero to add or subtract from the equation governing the underlying Vibratory interaction.

As a result, Sons of Ether aren’t really action-oriented. Weaknesses The Sons of Ether are composed of unique individuals with their own special theories.

Therefore, they must constantly retrace territory covered by other mages instead of discovering truly new avenues of inspiration. The cubes represent prima materia. You also have to keep in mind that in the Lore of Mage, being right isn’t nearly as useful as being persuasive. Enlightened Science, monotheistic mystical traditions, shamanistic nature magic, sympathetic and symbolic charms, and sacred geometries are examples of a few other paradigms.

Howeverin time it’s possible that lay scientists will be able to reproduce it as the White Tower and the Syndicate marketing teams and the Progenitor pharmacologists and medical masters slowly disseminate the techniques magd the public at-large.

Some base their works heavily on the use of a unique material tge ether being the most common example — while others are more pragmatic. The Tradition mages are more comfortable with non-rationalist paradigms, which tend to be, in general, more accepting and inclusive of mystery and the unexplained that the rationalists.


While it is a little mystical for the tastes of the Etherites, they feel it better to explore it anyway rather than let it stop them cold as it would the Conventions. The Oppenheimer Syndrome I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds rattles enough Etherites to ensure their technology is released at a more judicious speed and then only to those who can deal well with it, such as when they developed Trinary circuits and computing devices for the Virtual Adepts.

They see themselves as Shepherds, essentially inventing the future when they can and steering it when they can’t. The few remaining Cybenauts cruise the Digital Web and turn it to their whims. From there, the individual can posit theories about the functioning of reality as he sees thhe, and those theories lend themselves to creations.

The Sons of Ether are composed of unique sos with their own special theories. If you want to discuss contents of this page – this is the easiest way to do it. With the Sons of Ether, magic all comes down to Science! It’s nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Unfortunately, it is difficult to use and manipulate That Which Is Not. Some sub-societies are stable enough to bring in new blood and remain homogenous. The Model is comprised of eight or nine interacting Vibratory Planes, each of which can be acted upon.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Spaceships, for example, have been around for hundreds if not thousands of years thanks to magic.

Computers, ether goggles, wons schematics, hand tools, mathematical constructs, mental disciplines, scientific meters, specialized alloys, timepieces Concepts: Talking to someone a hundred miles away with a magic picture box isn’t Cor 2. Another view takes the position that “nothing exists; all is vibratory interaction.

Quantum physics, chaos mathematics, nanotechnology and other fields of Science that the Sons pioneered have all been legitimized and accepted by the masses. Node — Generator Perceiving useful values of zero tends to be aided by being near a generator.

For the Technomancers, it is allowed barely by the doubt about what Reality truly is. Submit a new text post. Son of Ether characters cannot teach rotes to non-Etherites, nor can they learn rotes from non-Sons of Ether.




Where other Traditions might rely on rotes to generate repeatable Effects, the Etherites have common gizmos and formulas that have been shared, refined and tested with time. These vessels ran on coal or vacuum tubes or transistors or steam or whatever other technology was popular at the time, none of which could have ever provided enough power to launch a spacceraft.

These Scientists spread not only potent devices to improve the quality of life, but also potent ideas — expressions of wonder, hope and unity.

Keplerians are eager to prove this and cite superconductivity as one example of this principle. The Etherites have been pressed to produce useful results by the Ascension War but this is still not their primary focus. This allows them to perform a dazzling array of effects by simply adding or subtracting characteristics of one type of matter to another.

In their eyes, their technology worked just fine with some minor quirks and instability here and there. In a manner of speaking that’s how I see it. Think of it this way: Astronaut, gadgeteer, medic, natural philosopher, social scientist, theoretical engineer, trucker Stereotypes Akashic Brotherhood: It is not clear why this should be so, other than the fact that six and multiples of six make working harmonization equations very easy.

As their Arete climbs, subsequent Seekings will take the symbolism from earlier ones and complicate them. Rather, their technomagick is usually carefully designed to fit within the Model that they’re researching.

Learning from another Son of Ether requires a successful mental challenge, with a difficulty equal to the rote’s usual vulgar difficulty. Part of the phenomenal arrogance required to directly manipulate reality through force of will is rock solid belief that one’s own paradigm is the true paradigm.

Factions Despite their wildly divergent theories, Etherites do tend to clump together.
