The legal, visible Academy is barely visible.  It consists of members, property, dialogue, and the simple love of wisdom.  It does not even have students in the traditional sense, being a research center.  Its motto is: “To harbor the love of wisdom.” Multitudo sapientium sanitas orbis.  Wisdom heals.

The Academy follows a twofold division of membership: the Table and the Board. Each division has separate powers and ceremonial roles.  The Table can be likened to the legislative power and the Board to the executive power.
