Bulwer’s Dream and the Coming Race

Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) was a British occultist, politician, grand strategist and oligarchical heir to two of the oldest bloodlines of England’s elite. He was also the first to popularize the concept of a species of automata controlled by a superior race of beings that had evolved within vast underground caves in his 1871 novel ‘Vril: The Power of the Coming Race’.

This book was no mere piece of entertainment, but rather served as a strategic outline for oligarchist planning which charted a course of action for several generations of imperialists which directly inspired the idea of a superior Aryan race that would replace humanity.

In his book, Bulwer-Lytton has two travelers happen by accident upon a vast underground civilization deep within an elaborate system of underground caves. The author describes these advanced subterranean beings as “a race akin to man’s but infinitely stronger in form and grandeur of aspect”. Bulwer-Lytton describes his advanced race as antediluvian-Aryans who have lived for millennia underground, slowly but patiently waiting for the right moment to return to the surface and enslave the inferior humans living there.

With their superior genetic power, this transhuman race communicates directives telepathically onto automata servants, mediated by an etheric energy which Bulwer dubbed “vril”. Bulwer writes of his superior race saying:

“In all service, whether in or out of doors, they make great use of automaton figures, which are so pliant to the operators of Vril, that they actually seem gifted with reason. It was scarcely possible to distinguish the figures I beheld, apparently guiding or superintending the rapid movements of vast engines, from human forms endowed with thought.”

Bulwer-Lytton made it clear that the power of clairvoyance, telepathy, telekinesis and astral projection used by his Vril society was not the product of teaching but merely breeding of pure bloodlines. If the blood of higher nobility flows through the veins of a student, then they can be taught occult techniques to wield the vril (like the pure bloods in Harry Potter, or the special bloodlines of Jedi warriors in more recent lore). But a low-born has no chance to use the Vril force.  (more...)
