The end is nigh? No the end is just a button waiting to be pressed... It's only a matter of time until someone pushes the button.
The worst thing in the world is having the knowledge you could destroy it and that someone wants to make you do it. The good thing is, I know who it is that wants to make it happen and that I'm their worst nightmare just as much as they are mine.

They believe he will be able to do it if he would only embrace their teachings. Over the course of several weeks he does that and goes through a trial in which he’s given a poison that causes him to hallucinate and at the same time wake up seeing a horrible vision that makes him believe nuclear war will devastate every nation on the planet and wipe humanity out unless he does something to stop it. Then he kills the pirates using a bow, an assortment of stolen guns, and a machete. He makes it back to Chernobyl, and informs his father of what happened.

- Clement of Alexandria

The Soul is an ever changing part of our very being, from our birth to our death. It filters through life, as we grow, change, sleep, awaken, and more. To know the Cycle of the Soul is to follow the signs of the Zodiac, the very seasons of life.

Thoughts and Questions
Why in hell do I fear what I can control? Is it because of disbelief or because of the Abyss tainting magic with Paradox? Is it because I feel that I am a danger to others and even myself?
Why do I not care about other Awakened the way they think I should? Why do many of them think they are Gods? They sure as hell are not gods, not even close. They are children playing with their toys. I know what it is to not control powerful magic, deadly magic that could in theory kill man entirely. We are so vulnerable to radiation it's pathetic. I've killed with this power, I saw flesh burn, melt, sizzle, cook,turn to char and dust due to this power, and yet I wish to become stronger; why would I wish that upon myself?
To teach and be an example of how a mage should act, do, and perhaps even think. I want to save people not harm them and yet I feel as though I'm the biggest danger here in Charlotte. I guess that is why I've made soulstones and commited what many may call a taboo, by willingly allowing myself to be enthralled. It will keep me no them safe from me and my conscience now is spared from actions I may never do. I have strayed from the path of wisdom but not far, not like others have. Others toy with their magic and slowly descend and others jump right off without looking in the water and the rocks in it beforehand.
I don't know if what I fear will ever come to pass, but knowing I've taken steps to mitigate the damage should the Abyss take hold of me or should the Seers finally warp my mind to their enslaving practices. I will know that there is someone in the city just as adept, standing Vigil for me as I stand for the innocent,just in case.
If you want to be a Transhuman Engineer send me an email at email@example.com Silas now has Gnosis 5 and can teach it.
All your character has to do is Impress Silas. To say the least that really won't be that hard to do if you plan ahead. It doesn't have to be magically, but it should involve technology.
