Just as Plato had cited the Egyptian legend of the sunken island of Atlantis, Herodotus mentioned the Egyptian legend of the continent of Hyperborea in the far north.
When ice destroyed this ancient land, its people migrated south. Writing in , the Swedish author Olaf Rudbeck identified the Atlanteans with the Hyperboreans and located the latter at the North Pole. According to several accounts, Hyperborea split into the islands of Thule and Ultima Thule, which some people identified with Iceland and Greenland.
The second ingredient was the idea of a hollow earth. At the end of the seventeenth century, the British astronomer Sir Edmund Halley first suggested that the earth was hollow, consisting of four concentric spheres.
Soon, the concept of vril appeared. In , British novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton , in The Coming Race , described a superior race, the Vril-ya, who lived beneath the earth and planned to conquer the world with vril, a psychokinetic energy. In these books, he linked vril with the subterranean people of Thule. The Thuleans will harness the power of vril to become supermen and rule the world. We are Hyperboreans. We know well enough how we are living off that track. Although Nietzsche never mentioned vril, yet in his posthumously published collection of aphorisms, Der Wille zur Macht The Will to Power , he emphasized the role of an internal force for superhuman development.
Thus, many Germans in the early twentieth century believed that they were the descendants of the Aryans who had migrated south from Hyperborea-Thule and who were destined to become the master race of supermen through the power of vril. Hitler was among them. In , Rudolf Freiherr von Sebottendorf established its Munich branch. Sebottendorf had previously lived for several years in Istanbul where, in , he had formed a secret society that combined esoteric Sufism and Freemasonry.
It believed in the creed of the assassins , deriving from the Nazari sect of Ismaili Islam, which had flourished during the Crusades. While in Istanbul, Sebottendorf was also undoubtedly familiar with the pan-Turanian movement of the Young Turks, started in , which was largely behind the Armenian genocide of Turkey and Germany were allies during the First World War.
Back in Germany, Sebottendorf had also been a member of the Germanen Order Order of Teutons , founded in as a right-wing society with a secret anti-Semitic Lodge. Anti-Communism was added after the Bavarian Communist Revolution later in , when the Munich Thule Society became the center of the counterrevolutionary movement. In , the Society spawned the German Workers Party. Starting later that year, Dietrich Eckart , a member of the inner circle of the Thule Society, initiated Hitler into the Society and began to train him in its methods for harnessing vril to create a race of Aryan supermen.
Hitler had been mystic-minded from his youth, when he had studied the Occult and Theosophy in Vienna.
Later, Hitler dedicated Mein Kampf to Eckart. Because he was extremely impressed with Japanese culture, many believe that he was responsible for the later German-Japanese alliance. He was also highly interested in Indian and Tibetan culture, learned Sanskrit, and claimed that he had visited Tibet. It shared the same basic beliefs as the Thule Society and some say that it was its inner circle.
Germany has imposed an upper limit on asylum seekers, and Europe's borders are closed. It flashes between the s and the s intervweaving different people in a political thriller in Spain. From , the Turks had a pan-Turanian movement spearheaded by a society known as the Young Turks. Estas dos estructuras representan los extremos opuestos de un espectro de posibilidades culturales.

The Society sought contact with supernatural beings beneath the earth to gain from them the powers of vril. It also asserted a Central Asian origin of the Aryan race. Haushofer developed the doctrine of Geopolitics and, in the early s, became the director of the Institute for Geopolitics at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich.
Geopolitics advocated conquering territory to gain more living space Germ. Lebensraum as a means of acquiring power. Thus, when Hitler became chancellor in , he adopted Geopolitics as his policy for the Aryan race to conquer Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia. The key to success would be finding the forefathers of the Aryan race in Central Asia, the guardians of the secrets of vril.
The Swastika The swastika is an ancient Indian symbol of immutable good luck. Used by Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains for thousands of years, it became widespread in Tibet as well. The swastika has also appeared in most other ancient cultures of the world. Because of this association with the God of Thunder, the Latvians and Finnish both took the swastika as the insignia for their air forces when they gained independence after the First World War.
In the late nineteenth century, Guido von List adopted the swastika as an emblem for the Neo-Pagan movement in Germany. It would defeat and replace the cross, just as Neo-Paganism would defeat and replace Christianity. Published by Historia Silenciada, Used Condition: Used: Good Soft cover. Save for Later.

Payment Methods accepted by seller PayPal. It a pretty intense read but worth it. One of the worst books ever written, and I've read quite a few. The style is horrible, the story makes no sense and the characters are so badly written it's an insult to writers around the world.
That this author and this book, specifically won a literary award shows once more how all this awards are given by friends to friends, and not for quality, because no other reason could be to give anything to this horrible novel. May 04, Wesley rated it liked it Shelves: There is rape, murder, abuse, suicide, torture and other unsavory activities, but if you can stomach those types of things it is worth the read.
It flashes between the s and the s intervweaving different people in a political thriller in Spain. It's a bigger book but worth the time! La historia comienza lenta y floja.
Errores de sintaxis por todo el libro, le sobran 50 adjetivos a cada pagina. Una novela sobre el peso de la memoria y las herencias que recibimos aunque no las deseemos. Me ha gustado bastante. Una novela negra con todas sus letras. Por ejemplo, los personajes, aunque profundos al principio, se vuelven cansinos y repetitivos hacia la mitad del libro. Los personajes apenas cambian por dentro.
El autor crea personajes profundos que se sostienen precisamente porque son complejos, pero el autor no los deja evolucionar. Son interesantes al principio, como los personajes, pero pronto se vuelven repetitivos. Lo mismo pasa con las escenas. Book file PDF easily for everyone and every device.
