Ep. 12 – The New Gods

Twenty-fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. The movement of willful ignorance continues to surge. Our Curator often remarks that all people are born with an inherent thirst for knowledge, but that the elixir that will satiate such thirst can be bitter. These willfully ignorant are those who would rather drink sweet poisons than acerbic tonics. You may have noticed that we have engaged someone to promote our endeavors. A Crier, if you will, to bring our tonics to you, and you to our tonics. We feel now more than ever, as our philosophy of truth above all else is threatened, that we must do all within our power to ensure that this history is cataloged, archived, and consumed, no matter the flavor. May ignorance never be prized.

“It is taken as a given that we no longer live in the times of Gods, even as we await them. What then would Man, who holds himself above all else in the universe, do should he meet God face to face?”

Ep. 11 – The Poor Player

Seventeenth piece recorded by The Raconteur. Welcome back. We are excited to release a new episode of the Historical Recordings of The Raconteur. We’ve had a real breakthrough over the hiatus. A fragment of the first recording, thought to be lost to data corruption, was found within a file twenty-seven layers deep within the operating system’s core engineering of the ancient satellite. The fragment has been included at the end of the recording.

“It is often said that man is a poor judge of himself. Too often he is overly lenient to his shortcomings. Other times, however, he deceives himself to believe the crack in the mirror is his own reflection. Either way, the mirror reflects more than what is outwardly apparent.”

Ep. 10 – Saviors

Thirty-fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. The Historical Recordings of the Raconteur, brought to you by The Project in association with the Universal Cohort of Theoretical Histories and the Ecumenical Education Endeavor, will be on a short hiatus after this episode. Additional recordings are being decoded every day, but the difficult and laborious work does require time. We have been eternally grateful to all who have listened, and those who have a thirst for knowledge of the past. Be sure to subscribe to keep apprised of any updates.

“They say it is an unforgivable sin to wallow in despair, for there is always hope when God is present in your fellow man. But what is one to do but despair, when their hope becomes their torment?”

Ep. 9 – The Correspondence of Parallels

Thirteenth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We here at The Project have been so pleased to be able to share these historical recordings with the public. While there are some schools of thought that disregard the study of history, often citing that ridiculous adage uttered by that charlatan [REDACTED], “Today cannot be lighted by yesterday’s sun,” we believe that without understanding that which came before, we are at risk of falling victim to avoidable calamity. We hope that our efforts can help to stanch the flow of this sadly growing movement, and that our own creed might become the creed of all, “May ignorance never be prized.”

“The construct of society has ever been a choke on the flow of man’s desires. The sad truth however, is that the construct is an illusion, and those who are subject to its limits are those who cannot see the ones who loom above, tugging on invisible strings.”

Ep. 8 – Man-Made Paradise

Twenty-ninth recording of The Raconteur. Our illustrious Curator has come to formulate a theory about The Raconteur, but remains a very guarded and empirically minded individual, refusing to share without proper evidence to support it. While the other members of The Project spend hours in speculative discussion, Curator simply looks on with a sly smirk. But we all can’t help but wonder: Who was the man called The Raconteur? And who gave him that name?

“It’s a remarkable thing how the most generous are always the ones from which the most is demanded. For when they find out that you’re giving, they’ll never stop coming back to take. Even after you’re dead.”

Ep. 7 – Tara Salt’s Child

Twelfth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We still know next to nothing about the “Inimitable Masako” to which The Raconteur always refers. We aren’t sure if it was a era, a country, a city, or a person. But it is clear that he had a great reverence for the music they created, which is apt, as the ability to create music has become such a universally recognized requirement for greater intelligence.

“It is natural that a babe should suckle of its mother. For a mother is naturally gifted with the ability to provide. However, at some point, a babe’s thirst must be quenched, lest it begin to suckle more than just milk.”

Ep. 6 – The Abyss

Sixteenth recording of The Raconteur. This episode gives us our first glimpse of The Raconteur himself. It also hints at an event that seems to be of some great importance to him, and perhaps the time in which he lived.

“Man’s capacity for evil is so much greater than he would ever allow himself to realize. And it is this very denial that allows it to reach such unfathomable fathoms.”
