Actually, the motive I see is not fame, it's competition. I think it's clear in "Operations..." that Vyse was feeling competitive pressure to come up with something significant - something that would earn him prime real estate in history - before his budget ran dry.
Earlier you mentioned that Vyse was independently wealthy; I am unaware of that and would love to see a reference about that.
I'm also unsure what you think would be the reason that people make Vyse a "puppet who conveniently does what the theorist wants him to have done". What do you think poeple gain by wrongly discrediting Vyse?
