We continue to follow Bramley's "Custodial" powers up through
history as the Brotherhood continues to splinter and create warring
factions across the globe, keeping humans splintered and scattered
and fighting amongst each other while these ancient powers pull
strings in the background. We look at the early formation of
Christianity and how it changed when governmental powers moved in
and absorbed it. We look at the beginnings of the Islamic faith,
and the splintering and factioning that happened soon after. We
look at the crusades, the Knights of St. John who became the
Knights of Malta, and the Templars who became the Knights of Christ
and later, the Freemasons. We look at the Assassins, and the
powerful tool of the "lone assassin".
We also read a lot of listener communications talking about the previous Gods of Eden episodes, read an article from the Cosmic Tusk about space bacteria, and Kyle reads another great article written by a skerptard on the life and ideas of Dr. Freeman Dyson, which spurs a short conversation on the concept of "macrostructures" like the Dyson Sphere.
