It's funny how a college that, according to you, is entirely devoted to researching the Eternal Alchemy and nothing else doesn't even mention the Eternal Alchemy in the first place, don't you agree? And for that matter - what does any of this even have to do with the Eternal Alchemy being a religion rather than a philosophy? In fact, if you continue to claim that Synergetics is the embodiment of the Eternal Alchemy, it only serves to further alienate your theory that all asura are members of some grand sect, as the article clearly states philosophy, politics, and social theory. Not religion. As final food for thought on this little topic, even if all Synergetics asura were to utilize the Eternal Alchemy in their research and studies, so what? I walk on a road every day, that doesn't mean I devote every moment of my life to a religious road cult. Though that would be kind of funny. Heh.Within the College of Synergetics, asura are all about shaping energy and building connections. Here you can find the more mystical thinkers, those who study the raw matter of magic itself and disdain the solidity of the functional world. They are often more philosophical in bent, and are very used to dealing with political and social theory. These asura are interested in how patterns form, how errors propagate, and how chaos forms rational systems. Unfortunately, this dedicated study to psychology also leads them to be more secretive—even among themselves—as they believe they know how everyone else’s mind works…and those minds are out to get them! Even the greatest of this college’s alumni can tend to be a little shortsighted, devising ethereal plans and constructing psychological reasoning without actually venturing out of their laboratories for concrete tests. When a member of the college speaks of his alma mater, they typically are speaking of the social structures they’ve created through their tutelage, their connections, and the body of asura who consider themselves a ”college” of like minds.
Also, as promised, a little further down in the article:
Although not actually a college, the Inquest is the largest krewe in asuran culture, and is a relatively new organization.
