A SKEPITCAL LOOK  AT  FAMOUS OCCULTISTS
By The Notorious Doctor Zoom Zoom   

EDWARD BULWER-LYTTON (1803-1873)


 

    A English blue blood writer best remembered for the now cliched line “It was a dark and stormy night.”  The English Rosicrucian society, founded in 1867 by Robert Wentworth Little, claimed Bulwer-Lytton as their 'Grand Patron', but this was news to Lytton, and he wrote to the society complaining that he was "extremely surprised" by their use of the title, as he had "never sanctioned suc"'. Bulwer-Lytton was a believer in the occult who wrote a book titled The Coming Race in 1870. It dealt with a mysterious energy called “Vrill”,  and a race of fictitious underground supermen by the same name who were destined to emerge when they ran out of living space and destroy humanity.

 

    Lytton meant his work to be fiction, but many Theosophists believed the book to somehow be true! The Theosophists concluded the fictitious "Vrill" people of Lytton's book were the Aryans. The idea of Vrill became popular among German racists, and even seems to have had an influence on Nietzsche, even though he was supposedly an atheist. The AMORC and Theosophists still write about the Vrill energy, which doesn’t actually exist, and probably will continue to write about it. All this from one novel!  The legend of Vril continued to grow, and several occult groups were established in Germany before World War II inspired by this Vril fallacy, including a “Vril Lodge”. Serbottendorf, Hitler and Hess are said to have belonged to one of them. No doubt if Bulwer-Lytton could see how his novel inspired so much evil he would be horrified!


     The legend of underground Aryans continued to grow, even after Germany wascrushed by WWII. In the 1970's, a crackpot writer named Dr. Raymond Bernard wrote several books about Nazis living at the South Pole, who had found the entrance to the “Hollow Earth”. He tried unsuccessfully to raise money to buy a Zeppelin, which was to have been decorated with swastikas, to fly to the South Pole to find it. Some fringe groups today believe Hitler and the Nazis escaped to the South Pole and to this non-existent Hollow Earth.


     Hitler’s committed suicide in 1945 according to eyewitnesses who were with him, and his remains were positively identified through dental records, therefore he did not escape to the South Pole or the Hollow Earth. Scientists know the earth is not hollow, but filled with molten rock. Anyone who has heard of volcanoes knows this is true. It just shows you how far occultists can take a work of fiction! 

    Today, Lytton is today considered a hack writer, and UCLA even gives out a “Bulwer-Lytton Award” each year for incredibly bad writing. There is no Vrill, there are no Aryan Supermen - - not above ground, below ground, or att the South Pole - - and the Nazis were evil and lost WWII. This is reality.
