Person X. . . . The A to Z of Slightly Strange Unknown Victorian Inventors and Explorers
There are few things that are still covered by the official secrets act of Great Britain that have their origin back in the Victorian Era, one or two shock stories relating to the government itself and the one about the Royal Family (yes we all know that anyway). However there is one that deals with a device so ahead of its time that even now it is felt that it should remain entirely secret and is only known as device X and even this is speculative. It is said that one of the members of the Preposterous Club of Great Britain was discussing a substance he had accidently discovered as part of an experiment to create gold from base metals. The substance which he called Substance X had rather unique powers but no one knew how to harness the powers in a productive way.
Then someone now only now only Person X invented Device X; a device that it was felt could revolutionize the whole way of life for mankind on planet Earth. Of course the members of the Preposterous Club of Great Britain were Wealthy Victorian Gentlemen and changing the way of life for all of mankind when they were actually living a rather comfortable lifestyle was a worry. As was the thought of going mad and thinking they were Penguins. So it was that the Preposterous Club of Great Britain approached the Government of the day for advice about both Substance X and Device X. The Government concerned that if the public became aware of the device would become rebellious and march on the houses of parliament, immediately made anything connected in anyway to the device an official secret. . . code named The X Files.
It is said the device still exists in a high security military establishment in
and has a
twenty four hour permanent guard; although it is thought the guards themselves
are unaware of the true nature of what they are guarding; having been told it
is merely a thermal nuclear device of some sort. The government of the day even
went to the extreme of removing X from the Welsh alphabet as part of a
deception plan, meaning that Device X can not exist in Wales by that name
because there is no X. . . . Wales
