The President, Council, and Fellows of the Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge, or the Royal Society, is a learned society for science and is possibly the oldest such society still in existence. situated in London, England it was founded back in 1660, A.D. with a royal charter from King Charles II. It was created to promote science and its benefits and providing scientific advice for policy, fostering international cooperation.
In the 19th century Dr. Nathaniel Essex an Oxford University educated biologist developed advanced theories on human evolution and was obsessed with Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, though he felt Darwin and his contemporaries were shackled by too many moral constraints and that science was beyond morality. Dr. Essex dreamed of bringing the perfection of the evolution of the human race to the masses. As a member of London's Royal Society, Dr. Essex was regarded, by some, to be the greatest scientific mind of his generation, and, by others, as a dangerous man twisted by the obsession of his own research. 
Dr. Essex believed in Darwin's theory of evolution and discovered that humanity was undergoing increasing mutation, due to what he called the "Essex Factor" in the human genome. Dr. Essex also believed that, in the offspring of certain racially superior individuals, these parcels will, within a hundred years or so, mutate. 
Dr. Essex's presented his theories to the Royal Society and was mocked, making him bitter, and his revealing of an unorthodox experiment resulted in his ousting from the Royal Society. Even Darwin himself suggested that Dr. Essex see a physician due to the trauma of losing his son. Angry, Dr. Essex stated to Darwin that if becoming a monster was what was required for science to progress, then he would become a monster.
