Loading Cult Module: Machinians |======|100%
Machinians are a group of people that believe in the concepts and writings taught by Jeffrey Reihnhard, who believe in Thomas Edison’s theories about communicating with the afterlife through machines. Reihnhard teaches that the very foundation of reality and the principal reason of the existence of humankind is to create technological advancements, eventually ending in a machine that is so advanced that it can touch god. This event is The Singularity. Machinians believe that by creating the True Singularity, they will be able to advance technology so quickly that a machine that will allow them to talk and be in the presence of god will become reality.
Machinians are usually scientists, inventors or scholars, but the Cult has gathered followers from every category of society. Machinians are the main cause of micro Singularities, and therefore openly practicing Machinism is outlawed in the UTW. DTE heavily punishes any Machinian members, usually be reconditioning.
Jeffrey Reihnhard, the creator of the cult, entered hiding long ago, and has not had contact with the public in over seventy years. He is presumed dead. His followers preach that he was able to build a device to contact god, and that he is now in his presence. They tell tales of him communicating with them in dreams and telling them of dark tasks they must perform.
<\MACHINISM IS NOT A JOKE. ANYBODY SUSPECTED OF BEING A MACHINIANS WILL BE PLACED UNDER ARREST AND QUESTIONED. REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES TO YOUR LOCAL UTW HEADQUARTERS.\>
