This secret society has it's roots and inspirtion from a science fiction book! :owned:

Vril: The Power of the Coming Race (original title), also known as The Coming Race is a novel published in 1870 by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Edward Bulwer-Lytton was a member of British Royalty. He was involved in politics and became the Secretary of State for the Colonies. He was a poet, playwright and novelist who authored many books, the most popular being, "The Last Days of Pompeii". He also wrote Zanoni and the Coming Race. He was a member of the Hermatic order of the Golden Dawn. Most people associated with secret societies and occult lodges never took his work, The Coming Race as mere fiction. but truth veiled in a fictional story The novel is an early example of science fiction, sometimes cited as the first of this genre. The elements believed as truth was that a superior subterranean master race with the energy-form called Vril , and their claim to rise and conquer the surface race someday,was accurate, to the extent that some wealty and influential members Bulwer-Lytton who were theosophists accepted the book as truth and began to act upon their beliefs.
The plot of the novel centers on a mining engineer, who accidentally finds his way into a subterranean kingdom occupied by beings (the race of the Vril-ya), who seem to resemble angels. The hero soon discovers that they are descendants of the inhabitants of Atlantis. They have access to an extraordinary force called "Vril" that can be controlled at will. However their spiritually elevated hosts controlled the Vril.

The uses of Vril in the novel amongst the Vril-ya vary from an agent of destruction to a healing substance. According to Zee, the narrator's host, Vril can be changed into the mightiest agency over all types of matter, both animate and inanimate. It can destroy like lightning or replenish life, heal, or cure.

The hero is looked upon as a pet who might have to be put down or at least kept for all time with them. He escapes this subterranean realm with the knowledge that this race intends to someday resurface to take control of the surface dwellers, hence the title The Coming Race.
The book was quite popular in the late 19th century, and for a time the word "Vril" came to be associated with "life-giving elixirs".
When the theosophist William Scott-Elliot describes life in Atlantis in The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (first published 1896), the aircrafts of the Atlanteans are propelled by vril-force. Obviously he did not regard that description as fiction, and his books are still published by the Theosophical Society.

What amazes me in this combination of secret societies and rather unorthodox beliefs, is the strangeness of this mix. To put this in modern Americanized terms, it would be like the Masons, the Star Trek fan club and The Church of Today, merged into one group and became responsible for over 50 million deaths.

What that should tell us today is that we should not be so careless to see the potential dangers from some of these UFO cults and the many New Age movements.
The line must be drawn here! This far, no farther!
