The Crystal Ball Initiative came down from Control on January 1, 2016. It wasn't just a, you will put together a study, but a complete directive. Start to finish, including who will be assigned to the project. This last part being the greater annoyance to those so instructed to form the study.
Those below Control were both confused and annoyed, a feasibility study focusing on the Reality Deviants? How preposterous, however the funding was quite... impressive, the people Control had picked were good but troublesome agents. So the people weren't a problem, they would be out of the way, so to speak, on what was believed to be a fool's errand.
The Crystal Ball Initiative: To quietly and covertly study a large and diverse population of Reality Deviants to see if it would be possible for the Technocratic Union to work with them on a regular basis rather than being constantly out to remove them, and conversely could the Reality Deviants willingly work with the Union. This will require those doing the study to interact with the subjects of the study, hopefully befriending and getting to know them. And sometimes working at odds with other Agents of the Union. Resultant potential disciplinary action will be handled by Control, should such action be deemed necessary by Control. (Boy did that annoy the people who thought they were in charge.) The length of the study is not fixed and will continue in what ever manner deemed necessary by Control for as long as Control deems necessary.
