File Name: cults conspiracies and secret societies .zip
By their very name, secret societies inspire curiosity, fascination and distrust.
Human beings have believed in conspiracies presumably as long as there have been groups of at least three people in which one was convinced that the other two were plotting against him or her. Whereas recent generations have tended to find their conspiracies in politics and government, the past often sought its mysteries in religious cults or associations. In ancient Rome, for example, the senate tried to prohibit the cult of Isis lest its euphoric excesses undermine public morality and political stability. And during the Middle Ages, many rulers feared such powerful and mysterious religious orders as the Knights Templar. Fascination with the arcane is a driving force in this comprehensive survey of conspiracy fiction.

A secret society is a club or an organization whose activities, events, inner functioning, or membership are concealed. The society may or may not attempt to conceal its existence.

Лицо у Смита было растерянным. - Сэр, мы до сих пор не имеем понятия, что это за предмет. Нам нужны указания. ГЛАВА 114 - Обыщите их еще раз! - потребовал директор. В отчаянии он наблюдал за тем, как расплывчатые фигуры агентов обыскивают бездыханные тела в поисках листка бумаги с беспорядочным набором букв и цифр. - О мой Бог! - Лицо Джаббы мертвенно побледнело. - Они ничего не найдут.
Перерыв? - Бринкерхофф не был в этом уверен. Он достаточно долго проработал бок о бок с директором и знал, что перерыв не относился к числу поощряемых им действий - особенно когда дело касалось ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Фонтейн заплатил за этого бегемота дешифровки два миллиарда и хотел, чтобы эти деньги окупились сполна. Каждая минута простоя ТРАНСТЕКСТА означала доллары, спущенные в канализацию. - Но, Мидж… - сказал Бринкерхофф. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ не устраивает перерывов. Он трудится день и ночь.
Пальцы у него онемели. Он упал. И в следующее мгновение не осталось ничего, кроме черной бездны. ГЛАВА 102 Стратмор спустился на нижний этаж ТРАНСТЕКСТА и ступил с лесов в дюймовый слой воды на полу. Гигантский компьютер содрогался мелкой дрожью, из густого клубящегося тумана падали капли воды.
