The Third Power
- A Cubist group that has worshipped the Cube, although its connection to the Cube may have been concealed
- The group has an organized web-based mail system
- See: 3PGroupwareManager
- The main operatives on Earth had been identified, while there was a small number of them.
- See: 3PDossier
- After the arrival of the Third Power at The San Francisco Connection through the wormhole, it is unclear how many operatives are on Earth and who they are. They were intent on warning us off searching for the Cube. There are, presumably, agents all over the world. There are at least 15 agents in the UK.
Trail of Discovery
- We had heard the name "The Third Power", first on a website run by the Cubist group The Brotherhood of the Six.
- We asked Violet to lookup a book on the subject of the 3rd Power for us, though she didn't immediately respond.
- Pietro Salk's Salk logs contained a doodle of a shape.
- The Final Salk Log is not a log at all, but is a graphic. The text reads:
(4) People needed
- It is believed "3P" refers to The Third Power.
- Earth Citizens were soon ushered down a long and winding trail, known as The Receda Trail.
- At the trail end, we discovered information about something happening on 22-OCT-05.
- And at the end of that day, we pieced together bits of information and eventually discovered: 3PGroupwareManager
- Meanwhile, Violet was starting to come forward with some information about the book we asked her to look up.
- It turns out the book was almost purposefully vandalized
- The subject matter of the book is mostly batty, but seems to mention, in several places, the Third Power, and the Receda Cube.
- 10-AUG-06 - Every Perplex City site on earth (except The Receda Trail, mind candy, and pxc.com) was taken over, replaced by a plain static image, as seen here.
- It is believed this may have some relevance to The San Francisco Connection, based on the same warning text being spotted on a banner ad for the event.

Monica Grand died giving us the trailhead of keywords. The Third Power lead us all over creation .. only to beat us over the head in the end. The jerks.
