Who were the members of the Society?

No archives of the Society have been unearthed, and it is possible that they kept no written record of meetings or membership. Speculation has been rife; few 19th-century scientists and occultists have escaped the scrutiny of historical bloodhounds trying to ascertain exactly who the Society consisted of. Since, as mentioned, there may have been several Societies of Dreamers operating over a period of time, there are many persons of note to speculate about. Here are some of the more prominent ones.

Helena Blavatsky

Founder of the Theosophical Society. Blavatsky seems to have viewed the mnemosites as spirits of the dead, or possibly the unborn.

Marie Curie

Physicist pioneering the field of radioactivity. It is highly doubtful that such a rational scientist should be part of the Society of Dreamers; still, rumors persist.

Carl Jung

Strangely, Jung is said to have joined the Society at the age of six. Perhaps this influenced his later choices in life, and even his psychoanalytical research. Or, as always, his membership may simply be a pseudo-historical fabrication.

Nikola Tesla

The many strange experiments of Tesla caused his contemporaries to call him – sometimes jokingly, sometimes in awe – a magician. If anyone could have attempted to construct an apparatus capable of transferring dream images between living brains, it would have been him. Evidence is, however, scarce.
