The organization known as S.E.R.V.E. was founded in the Fall of 1997 by two likeminded academics who had tired of the unenlightened claptrap they had been bombarded with by television and the cinema for most of their adult lives. For them, the idea of having the wrong kind of entertainment foisted their sensitive intellects was a violation of their civil rights. Enough was enough.
In almost perfect unison, the two decided that there had to be a way to honor the more relevant pastime of the day -- video oriented puzzle based entertainment. And like Athena from Zeus' head, S.E.R.V.E. was created. Today the Society has a growing number of members and has branches in multiple states. S.E.R.V.E. aims to raise awareness of the finer pursuits in life and show humanity that having a splendid acumen can only be a good thing.
The world is full of mysteries. We may find them everywhere. These mysteries may also find us if we are lucky. But without the proper puzzle abilities, these mysteries are as interesting to us as a jejune bucket of rocks. It should go without saying that without the proper puzzle abilities we ultimately fail in life. Without the proper puzzle abilities we would slowly become unthinkers.

We are aware of their existence, but we know not why they are.
