                              Pravus Scientia

There has been growing concern amongst many people that I talk to of late
that what I do is evil or that it is unnatural, and that I am against god.
This is simply not the case! I simply intend to improve on what god granted
us, if that means the removal of a limb, or the attachment of a better more
healthy body part then so be it, for what harm am I doing by simply
investigating further anatomy?

Some of you may be familiar with my research and some may not, so I will
attempt to summarize the last three years of work here in a simple manner.

I originally worked towards returning the dead to life via a formulae of my
own devising, this worked well and although many of my 'reanimations' were
rather dull headed or spastic at times I consider this the first and most
vital step along my way, once I spent a considerable amount of time with this
formulae I began pondering what other medical uses it might have and so I
began constructing various things of the parts of bodies I dealt with, this
too proved most enlightening and showed me that consciousness resides in all
cells of the body not simply the brain as some others might lead us to
believe.

And now with these two great achievements I have been attempting to create an
entire new form of life from parts, which I have slowly been collecting, but
the lack of input from the public leads me to believe that I am being
ostracised for some crime against nature or some other nonsense, I forget too
often the ramblings and cursings I have thrown at me by the 'pure'.

And so because my task of collecting the requisite parts for my creation has
been so difficult I ask that should anyone with any medical, occult,
magickal, or necromantic experience wish to aid me in my endeavour please
feel free to send me some form of note detailing what you can help with.

Because so many have called what I do evil, I am calling this new team of
scientists and magicians 'Pravus Scientia' which is rather crude latin for
Evil Science or Evil Knowledge or some other such ancient simplicity.

For those curious about why I would gather such a band, no we will not be
calling ourselves a 'clan' or forming in some horrid bloodbath to slay all
those around us, we are simply like minded enthusiastic individuals who would
like to support one another through conversation, research and experience.

While we will not be a gang, clan, or other organised sect I will be offering
those who contact me the use of my meagre laboratory in my rather abandoned
house.

I look forward to hearing from any interested parties.

Dr. Herbert West.
