Sterens, knowledge revealed

Scary and terrible as they seem, the Sterens have been with us for
centuries and centuries, a formula, a recipe, adapted to the times and
the mentality, passing from groups to group, a meme as some would say,
changing as to be convincing and... useful... for those who believe or
would believe are majority and only the very strong can resist the
wonders that the Sterens offer, at a cost that to many is just

But in the end they are as powerful as the power we grant them. No
more. FOr not believing, ignoring turns them into their contrary,
nothing, nonexistent, while their followers will be on a path of self
destruction that will eventually cancel them out, and the more
followers, the more they will cancel themselves out. A recipe and
earnings for those who apply it, a loss for those who accept it and for
their victims. Not believing is winning. But then... in a chaotic
universe how many wonders are yet to be discovered?
