The members of Sententia Vigilum are best known for their silence. They seem to never have contact with outsiders and some say that not even their affiliate posses anything near 1% of knowledge about the core of the organization.
Their most famous moto is: "Video et taceo." And if they are to be believed it means something along the lines of: "I see and say nothing."
According to them it was a motto first used by a queen of the 16th century. Sadly enough a lot of the information from that time is lost to us. This means that there is no solid proof left for what they say but most still believe it.
The organization that calls itself Sententia Vigilum, also known as "the order", is said to have been created in the year 2120 when Mars was beginning to be Terraformed. However, some historians say that there where groups of people like Sententia Vigilum long before that. This could possibly mean that the order has existed for much longer than that. Whether you want to believe this depends on you.
One thing is sure though. They always are at each big event and they always seem to know everthing. Legends hold it that they have the biggest library of the entire universe. A collection of information so big that it would be beyond our imagination. For generations people have been searching for this mysterious source of information. If you feel lucky you can even go and try it for yourself.
Some of the most notable events of the order are listed below:
- Founding of the order, 2120
- Their first trip into space, 2130
- Official announcement of Individuality, 2200
1: This is the date in the UEE official reports.
The creation of the order is of its very nature a big mystery. There are theories that claim that the order has been created in the early years of human history, so that would be in 3000 BC. This, of course is a rough estimation of time and events. The year 3000 BC is 5120 years earlier than the year that is stated in the official Governement files. We'll go through some of the most well known theories below.
3000 BC Edit
Around this time the human species started to write things down and become more advanced. It is believed that the order helped many civilizations to do this. People who believe in this theorie say that the very first members of the order were not human but alien races who wanted to help the humans survive and thrive. In return the aliens would be seen as gods.
2560 BC Edit
In this year it is that the Great Pyramid of Giza was finished, some say that the story of it being a burial site is only a cover-up for the truth. A ultra-modern HQ for that time. Because of this prominent event in history historians say that the order came to be somewhere around this period of time since they have as long as we know been present at big events.
1600 BC Edit
Shang Dynasty, fully evolved Chinese writing system. According to some those two things suggest that an organized order had to stand up and lead China into a new Dynasty. Some of those people say that it was the order now known as Sententia Vigilum that did this.
753 BC Edit
Just like in 1600 BC certain things happened that are very remarkable in the history of mankind. This time it is the founding of Rome. Again it is an event that doesn't just happen. It needs to be coordinated properly. The current reputation of the order would say that they are more than capable of doing so.
4 BC Edit
In this year the baby called Jesus Christ was born. He was destined to do great things in history and even greater things that are not in the known history. If you believe the citizens that tell this story. The fact that he dit great things is for sure. Wether he also created an order called Sententia Vigilum is unsure.
At this date the period known as ancient history ends and a new period starts. Since the order has always liked to be a little bit dramatic some say that they started on this day to make their creation date something special.
And last but not least the most famous theorie of all. Sententia vigilum = Priory of Sion. There are huge amounts of citizens and civilians that say that they are one and the same order. This subject is discussed further in a separate chapter.
Priory of Sion Edit
The Prieuré de Sion, translated from French as Priory of Sion, is a name given to multiple groups, both real and fictitious. The most controversial is a fringe fraternal organisation, founded and dissolved in France in 1956 (abiding by the 1901 French Law of Associations) by Pierre Plantard. In the 1960s, Plantard created a fictitious history for that organization, describing it as a secret society founded by Godfrey of Bouillon on Mount Zion in the Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1099, conflating it with a genuine historical monastic order, the Abbey of Our Lady of Mount Zion.
Sadly enough there are only a few people who know about Earth's history. Therefore we can't say anything solid on the subject of the Priory of Sion. All we know is that some people believe it to be the same order we today know as Sententia Vigilum.
