In 1871, English politician and novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton had wrote the book, "The Coming Race", that described a subterranean world inhabited by beings who call themselves "Vril-ya". They had formerly been surface dwellers until a global catastrophe forced them to take up refuge deep in the Earth. The survival of their society was facilitated by their application of an energy force, they referred to as "Vril".
It was supposed by some that Lytton 's book was not altogether a work of fiction. Some claimed that Lytton was privy to secrets of the lost Lemurian and Atlantean worlds. His work presented the idea of a subterranean matriarchal, socialist utopia ruled by superior beings who had mastered this mysterious energy called the Vril Force. The book describes this race of men as psychically far in advance than our own. Thus a secret society was formed, known as The Vril Society who actually supported the Nazi movement. "This secret society was founded, literally, on Bulwer Lytton’s novel The Coming Race (1871)."
German oriental scholars and occultists regarded such ancient myths with complete seriousness and during the lull between the First and Second World War, diligent efforts were put forth by both the 'Thule' and the 'Vril' secret societies to transform these myths into a viable technological reality for Nazi Germany.
Idealogicaly, mastery of an occult force such as 'Vril' would not only assure German technical dominance–it would ultimately liberate Germany from any crippling co-dependence upon the international petroleum cartels dominated by Germany's conquerors–the United States and Britain.
Flow of powerEdit
During WWII, the Vril Society channeled advanced beings for any knowledge of the "Vril power" described in Lytton's, "The Coming Race". The intent was to gain a technological edge in the Nazi movement. Interestingly, that "edge" was funneled to the United States through Operation Paperclip. All of the German rocket technology and developments were absorbed into the US aerodynamics, soon to be space program.
