But Sleeper knowledge is second to the secrets of Art, Supernal and other topics connected to the Truth, Not without reasons Mysterium is thought as most strongly obsessed on uncovering Atlantis and Time Before secrets, forgetting their Sleeper lives.

On the topic of “Knowledge Has A Price”, I feel the need to say that I do not believe the Mysterium charges its members for everything. To enter Lore House you must pay the price, to borough books you need to pay more.

The order grew nearly as mighty as the Silver Ladder, and restricted access to its collection to keep challengers from usurping its place.
