The Virtual Adepts got tired of being “the bad guys” and split from the Technocracy in an Edward Snowden-esque gambit to distribute dangerous, secret knowledge to the masses and Traditions. Log in or sign up in seconds. Side by side with the more reasoned workers of the Renaissance, these guildsmen went on to pioneer new creations and inventions. They’re top reliant on one vision, but they do make some useful toys. While Technocrats codify the universe into a static mold explainable by convoluted science, the Sons of Ether reject such a notion as foolish.
Was making that technology into a tool of death a good thing? For the traditions, each tradition can take an unlimited amount of reality, for one infinite divide nine ways is still infinity for each and every one.
Dark matter theory posits the existence of an unseen yet massive matter all around — the ether. Because of the influence of the Islamic Scroll, the Etherites tacitly assume there is the Subjective Reality defined by the logical implications of their Models. Suddenly all of the Etherites ships, instead of being the future, were now obsolete, running on a theory that no longer made sense. With practice a SoE could replicate the effect, or more likely they would make a device to replicate the effect.

While other Technomancers pioneer new worlds, the Sons of Ether take the discarded cast-offs of technology and turn them into creations of the imagination. As science travels into zons more detailed realms, the Sons of Og find more cracks to exploit. The few remaining Cybenauts cruise the Digital Web and turn it to their whims. Organization Given the fractious and chaotic nature of most Etherites, it’s not surprising that their Tradition follows suit.
A different mage may instead be overconfident and arrogant, they may be at the whelm of the ship, and must listen to the advice of those they consider inferior in order to avoid crashing the ship. Sons of Ether eventually acquire titles like Doctor and Ascensionn Scientist. They use tools, technology, and science as their methodologies in the same way that a Chorister uses prayer, an Ecstatic uses drugs, or a Hermetic uses Enochian script.
The VAs have a similar – although more doctrinarian and less material – point of dispute with the general Technocracy. Ascensin other conformed to and refined accepted medical practices, and went on to become the face of modern medicine.
Perceiving useful values of zero tends to be aided by being near a generator. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities.
Best case they refused to start while worst case they would explode with proto-nuclear force. As for the idea of progress, it’s a tough question to answer.
And the Technocracy cannot abide either. On the other hand, the Technocracy knows that their tech is lightyears away from what is now considered mundane, which is why they hide it: In either case, one can be sure that the Sther will cause plenty of fireworks.
Cultures don’t just change in the face of overwhelming evidence.
No invention is too strange, no theory is too obscure, for them to tweak it ascfnsion find a way to use it. I do recognize the distinction; I was attempting to express that they have bought their own line, at least to the extent they can almost, desperately, quasi-justify it.
Another’s avatar may instead be grounded in reality, requiring that they build their way out of a prison cell, or an abandoned mine.
To the Sons of Ether, their Science is the true exploration of a universe of infinite possibilities, where a good theory, some sound equipment and a whole lot of inspiration can literally make anything happen.
If something has a zero vibration, then it isn’t vibrating at all! With their incredible mastery of Matter, a few of these pioneers have made some theories about shielding their ships from the storm winds lashing the wall between dimensions, and their once-ridiculed craft may eyher a potent tool in exploration of the Umbra.
The Tradbook is really useful for exploring the diversity of the Houses or brushing up on the paradigm in case you’re the odd Hermetic player who didn’t already know a lot about occultism, but I don’t think it’s good – or even meant – to sell you on the tradition the way most of the revised books are.

They are not so much part of a united faction as examples of a recognized phenomenon within the Tradition. Today, the Sons of Ether occupy a prominent place in the Tradition Council. All the mages understand how Consensus works, the Technocracy has made an organized and highly successful effort to manipulate the Consensus to match their agreed upon paradigm.
Keepers of the Wyck: 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. This is a recurring theme in the Technocracy. One Etherite’s avatar might throw them into elaborate thought experiments, such as a train travelling at the speed of light, where they must act in order to avoid a collision.
When the VE decides to call the VA an inmature kid an tells him to go back to his videogames, the VA says “challenge accepted” and produces a PS2 controller out of his backpack; then, he procedes to “connect” the controller to the ground and declares “I’m connecting my PS2 controller to reality”. For this reason, a great many simple inventions are common among the Etherites.
Perhaps Plato describes concepts the way he does because they were how he’d seen them in his seekings. The Technocracy is actively the opposite, directly denying the viability of anything outside of their paradigm. The Convention took upon itself the new moniker “Sons of Ether,” and turned to the Traditions for succor. Astronaut, gadgeteer, medic, natural philosopher, social scientist, theoretical engineer, trucker.
With roots dating as far back as the Middle Ages and a series of changes through the modern day, the Sons of Ether have quite a convoluted background. However, although a student may serve in the capacity of “gruntwork,” every true Scientist remembers that inspiration is an intensely personal path and gives merit to the ideas of any Etherite.
Those criticizing Keplerianism say that Vibration 0 is a logical impossibility.
Such stubbornness is the price of genius after all. You are commenting using your Facebook account. They believe that you can’t really control information, that people should be able to access it freely and do with it as they please.
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.
So etherites and virtual ethrr accept that there is no limit on the number of ways they can find to change the world around them.
