A parareligious terrorist organization active in the early 22nd century, whose objective was to introduce a holistic temporal chaos on Earth. Their actions (see Great Temporal Crash) led to damaging the digital data coding dates and periods. The Temporists destroyed hundreds of thousands of cemeteries and monuments, works of art, and commemorative plaques. They created thousands of fictional objects complete with dates from the future. Those objects were found not only in public places but also in private homes. According to the most common theory, the Temporists bred and released into the air the RAC-5 virus that caused the TRID illness, and then used the symptoms and the Net to recruit around ten million supporters. The computer attack, hundreds of thousands of acts of vandalism, and other disorienting actions all combined with the epidemic and resulted in total chaos: nobody knew what had happened, when, or how long it had lasted, and since data was not recorded in material form (see Information Era), there were no sources to rely on. Most dates and periods were reconstructed on the basis of recovered information and detailed logical analyses, yet even today, it is uncertain whether the reconstructed historical realities of the Information Era are correct. The leaders of the Temporists were never captured. Most circumstantial prosecutions of their supporters were dismissed due to a lack of evidence and significant extenuating circumstances.
