The Adam – Creator of ‘Sic Mundus’
We have thought that the villain of the series “Dark” is Noah. in this season episode 2 we have got to know that Noah once worked under Claudia but something went horribly wrong in their relationship and then he seemingly embattled in an eternal fight with Claudia for control of time travel. But here in this season revealed that the Noah was the Pawn of ADAM – The only Creator of Sic Mundus Est (Secret society of time travellers)
Adam is the future older and disfigured Jonas who lived all his years to create a time machine and building his own secret society named “Sic Mundus Creatus Est”. Adam is the only leader and founder of this society.
He says he wants to create a new world, His words are “We’ve declared war on time. Declared war on God. We’re creating a new world, without time, without God.” which he also refers to as “paradise” and seems to be touting as part of a prophecy to the Sic Mundus group, involves making sure all of the 33-year-cycle events from 1954 to 2019 happen.
“We’ve declared war on time. Declared war on God. We’re creating a new world, without time, without God.”Adam
Apparently Jonas and Claudia are waging a war against his older self “Adam.”
As we have seen in the last episode Adam killed Martha in front of younger Jonas, Adam intentions is to give the younger Jonas the emotional impetus needed to continue on the path of eventually becoming Adam, believing Martha death will fuel him to wage the same war against time that Adam has been waging in this current loop.
Purpose of the White Devil!
Claudia (The white Devil) who is from the side of light and fulfilling her personal purpose to make her daughter Regina live. His whole motive was only to find the loophole and rearrange the puzzles through his paws or followers by travelling different years. She met herself in the past many times to guide her younger self that she needs to understand them and discover many realities of time travel and find the way so that Regina will live.
Noah got to know that he was misled by Claudia for her personal purpose. So he killed her and took the last pages of a secret diary. After taking the pages Noah is now breaking faith with Adam. He tells Charlotte that he only did the awful things (like killing the children) “so that it will one day no longer happen.”
The year 2052 Post Apocalypse
Only a few peoples only survive after the apocalypse, they got united and make their groups where they punished peoples who try to get inside the damaged nuclear plant. They are believing that there is part of god insides which someday open the gate to paradise. There is also a leader who can’t speak like Elizabeth. Jonas somehow managed to get inside and found the source of the apocalypse. He also found a few recorded tapes of Claudia in which she mentions the instructions on how to open the portal to the next world.
Jonas got a hope so escape from this time so he managed to get fuel to start the portal but caught by the local army. Where leader hanged him for his mistake but at the same point she shot on the rope and somehow Jonas survived. One of the members from his army took him inside the nuclear plant where Jonas managed to start the portal and escape from the future time.
