Essence of Knowledge is a Cypher of equipment in Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Description[edit | edit source]

This essence was put into a device to be placed over the eyes, where it injects a reddish-brown liquid into the retina. This gives one the ability to perceive the world with another, apparently more learned, perspective. Previously unknown knowledge of the Ninth World will be available to whoever consumes this essence. Unfortunately, the effect is merely temporary and leaves one with a rather persistent, and hard to scratch, itch on the corneas.
