Greetings o' weary traveler.
Come in, come in my friend.
It's rare that I have visitors,
So perhaps you'll stay a while
While I spin you some old yarns
From this book of dust and webs…

Hello! My name is DreamwalkerFae, or Fae for short. I am currently a Senior in High School. I own a pet cockatrice cockatiel named Sweetpea. I am a Protestant who lives in Nevada, USA, and really enjoy learning about different cultures and traditions from around the world (especially the mythology).
Anomalies: All the anomalies that we have on this site fall into one of two categories: preternatural and supernatural. Preternatural anomalies are things that humanity would still consider anomalous, but can pretty much just be attributed to superscience or a part of the natural universe that humans just don't fully understand yet (we already revise about half of our scientific understanding every 20 years IRL, our lack of understanding is just somewhat more exaggerated in the Foundationverse). Supernatural anomalies are the things that actually bend and break the (few) rules of science in the universe, though they usually have "good reasons" for it. This includes things like gods and magic in the 'Verse. Even then, they operate of of one of a few universal systems other than science, and you can usually spot the patterns if you're familiar enough. Now, if the Foundation were to put the effort into understanding the internal logic behind anomalies and was less bent on "but it doesn't fit with our current understanding of !!SCIENCE!!" then they'd actually have a lot more -EXs, and their "normality" would be a lot less arbitrary. On a side note, the sum total of the different effects that anomalies and nature have on the universe tends towards balance; the universe is not likely to ever experience heat death, nor will it ever run out of all forms of life.
A good deal of internal ethics monitoring actually goes on in the Foundation. They only do what they absolutely have to to maintain safety and secrecy. While when they were first getting started, there was a good deal of demonization and dehumanization of anomalies, that's started to wear off a bit since the Foundation figured out that getting anomalies as close to liking you as is reasonably possible tends to get you more information and less containment breaches. Same thing goes for D-Class; early on, they were cannon fodder, but over time the Foundation has tried to cut back on their deaths, use them in more non-lethal ways. They no longer promise the D-Class freedom at then end of a single month, often presenting several-year terms. Once their time's up, they do release them (provided that they're not contaminated), but they still get some use out of them.
GOC: The GOC gets their views from a lot of different sources, primarily the various countries in the UN and the composite orgs which started it. Their system basically comes down to "If it can help us and isn't dangerous, use it. If it can't help us but isn't dangerous, leave it be but make sure it knows not to cause trouble. If it's dangerous but can help, you'd better make sure it won't blow up in your face. If it's just dangerous, kill it with fire."
Serpent's Hand: A varied group that inhabits the library. No real control over who's in or out of the group, so it ends up being more of a tagline for a slightly dysfunctional movement than anything else.
CotBG: They do follow a god. She does have humanity's best interest at heart. FLESH is evil and must be destroyed. Flesh is not actually a bad thing, at least when it's not corrupted. All three branches are actually serving the same deity, who wishes that her followers would quit squabbling long enough to get her back online.
Prometheus Labs: Arguably the best GoI. These are the regular guys who are at least trying to understand the world around them. The Foundation would be doing good to take a page from their book.
GRU-P: These guys got the short end of the stick. They were really brilliant, but were somewhat hindered by living under an oppressive government and focusing only on weapons. Many of those who defected became widely admired in the anomalous science community.
AWCY?: Started off as a small group in the relatively much larger but still small overall anomalous art community. These original members made really cool anomalous art just for the sake of making cool stuff. Their success drew in a much larger group. Some of them got what the movement was about, and made cool stuff. The majority were people who were trying to ride the bandwagon, and had lower morals, were obsessed with popularity, were just hipsters, or had an unhealthy obsession with dadaism. Many of the more refined and talented artists, including the original members, disowned the movement and went on to other projects, leaving AWCY? as the dysfunctional mess it is today.
Alexylva University: An alternate universe where high tech occurred much earlier on than here, but where ancient Greece was still able to exist. Alexander the Great became biologically immortal, defeated the planet, and was about to invade other dimensions. A coup was staged. Alexander the Great is now hibernating in a flash drive. The University began as a simple-ish place of learning, and eventually expanded to cover pretty much everything.
Wondertainment: Dr. Eric (yes, that Eric) Wondertainment is one of a rare type of reality bender who pretty much subsist on the sense of Wonder in humanity, especially children. To kids, the Wondertainment toys are great. As they begin to lose interest and wonder, their new grittier view of the world begins to bleed into the toys. Prior to his escape, Eric/Wondertainment worked for the Factory, where he picked up capitalism and a few extra tricks. Isabelle is basically what happens when the good doctor creates a copy of himself, erases all the memory's and places it in another physical form to ensure the continuation of Wonder.
Nobody: Nobodies can do anything, but the universe retcons itself so that whatever they did is caused by a separate series of events, like they didn't exist. The only way to stop being a Nobody is to pass it on to someone else, at which point a retcon occurs so that they always were that Nobody, and the regular version of them never existed. Another point of interest is that Nobodies tent to choose highly interesting and often anomalous people to pass their mantles onto.
Santa Clause: The only being in all timespace who, as the result of coincidence, has both the Nobody and the Wondertainment power sets.
The Factory: A condensed concept of all the bad parts of industry and ambition, grew powerful enough to break through to reality.
UIU: The underdogs in the anomalous world. Could actually be pretty useful if there wasn't the threat of being crushed.
Oneiroi: Think Serpent's Hand but with dreams.
Chaos Insurgency: While that was the name of a rebel group from the Foundation, it now refers to only the tactical division of the Central Insurgency, a much larger group. Basically, they really want to see how this stuff works, how it can benefit them, and don't have that many morals. On the plus side, they're pro-anomalous humans!
Anderson: was a failed attempt at self-revival by Anderson from the Factory. Kept most of his skills and capitalistic urges, lost most of the psychopathy.
2615: Are much more active than their base file implies. Have left quite a few anomalies lying around in this reality. Oh, and their changelings (The ones disguised to look like us)? They seem to be less likely to just get booted back to their half of reality.
R&D at the Foundation actually does a nice little bit of work, but most of their stuff is mothballed due to the connection to anomalies (which they're actually getting closer to figuring out) by the more conservative pack rats. The exception is when it directly aids containment, like the SRAs. So, basically, the Foundation is sitting on a ridiculous amount of anomalous tech and resources that it doesn't want to use because of old taboos.
The Foundation was originally a joint initiative between 12 anomalous dealings organizations (O5-13 has always been picked out of a larger sampling group for special talents). Eventually, the groups expanded it to unite all of them.
Part of the reason that the public is still unaware of anomalies is that there have been 7 Occult Wars fought. Right now, that big magic number is being channeled in an attempt to keep the number of wars at 7. There's a few groups who want to start an 8th Occult War. If that were to happen, it would have the punch of a regular war plus a bonus for managing to break a cosmically enforced peace. Even if the population at large didn't find out, it would substantially change the world behind the Veil. One of the main effects would be the combination of the Foundation, GOC, and SH. This would actually be for the best, as the happy medium for dealing with anomalies in the universe really is a combination of all their ideologies; some anomalies should be free, others used, others contained, and still others destroyed.
SRAs don't get rid of anomalies. They are not magical black boxes which create a field of "makes science work." Never have been, never will be.
SRAs are specifically made to prevent various types of restructuring events. Some restructuring events, such as the CK and VK variants, cause blanket changes to all or a certain portion of the universe. In other cases, certain anomalous organisms (called Type Greens by the GOC) create a mental image of a certain reality, then overlay that reality onto the existing one. Of note is that, while a restructuring event can cause violations of physics as we understand them, not all violations of physics are restructuring events. For example, the Keter Cakes' multiplication is not a restructuring event, but The Most Awesome and Glorious High King Marty Stuart summoning a torrent of replicating cakes to drown his enemies would be.
Humes are merely a measure of how much leverage a certain portion of reality has against another part of reality should a restructuring event occur. Some parts of reality are about as stable as a wall of wet noodles, and even non-Greens can restructure them. Most of it is like a wall of dirt; normals can't restructure it, but built-like-a-tank Greens can. Then we have the cinder block wall areas; very few people can restructure those.
Most of the SRAs that the Foundation has are the ones that just happened to be on during the last major shift in reality. They were safe from the storm, and made it here. The Foundation has to be sparing with these, since there's a limited supply. The Foundation has been successful in replicating their design a few times, but the few that they can get to function on the same power level are somewhat clunky and unreliable. However, the Foundation was able to figure out how to create a smaller, more reliable model with an area of effect of about six inches. Not really good for containing anything, but great for building Kant counters, which are used to let field teams and sites know if a certain anomaly is Hume/restructuring based, or just a violation of physics.
