OriginEdit

Cyrus Teed was an experimenter interested in alchemy, whose tests involved high amounts of electricity. One day, he was shocked, passed out, and claimed that a messenger had come down to him, saying that he was a messiah. He rejected the idea of heliocentrism and formed his own view of the earth. The world existed on the inside of a planet, with the sun in the center and the stars reflections of the light. This theory, along with communism, celibacy, reincarnation and alchemy, became part of his newly formed community called the Koreshan Unity. He brought followers to the small town of Estero, Florida, to create a “New Jerusalem”. Eventually, the society died down and the town deeded back to the state.

EffectsEdit

His orrery was in his studies while he was contemplating the real layout of the Earth. Imbued with his new belief, it has gained the ability to turn anything it touches inside out. The trouble with using it, besides turning something inside out, is that the user over time will start to gain a messiah complex. It is sometimes kept in the Suspension Chamber when it becomes 'excited'.
