He could probably get behind Cyriss, yeah.
Except he's a bit too, um, unsubtle to successfully belong to a secret society for any length of time and would inevitably get himself in trouble by lobbing crazy inventions that shouldn't exist at people.
He has an interesting motivation: he believes that whatever agency was responsible for granting the Force to lifeforms was prejudiced and unfair in granting it seemingly at random, and wishes to find a way (through Science!) to allow all sentient beings to access it. Some of whom, of course, would then have to be dealt with because they'd go mad with power, but them's the breaks.
Not entirely surprising that he went nutty, with goals like that.
