The Vril: a most muliebral Force

temporaryThe Völkisch Weltanschauung

From the end of the 19th century to the 1930’s the Völkisch Weltanschauung in Europe, and Germany in particular, was a clear sign that there was an occult/hidden revolution against the degrading influence of positivist science, industrialism and humanistic enlightenment. The rise of occult and obscure societies like the Thule and Vril Society were no coincidence as the ancient spirit in the Soul of Europa was being awakened.

The Vril society of Berlin was an obscure community (“Reicharbeitsgemeinschaft ‘Das Kommende Deutschland’”) which published a brochure entitled ‘Vril: die kosmische Urkraft’ (1930) and this described the Atlanteans as possessors of a spiritual ‘dynamo-technology’ superior to the mechanistic notions of modernist science (Clarke 2002: 166). A second brochure rejected the notion of explosive energy and focused on ‘free energy’. These revolutionary ideas concerning science and technology went against the hegemonic process of materialization that suffocated all life and culture and turned it into mere calculated ‘objects’ (Heidegger: Gestell). The Enlightenment had only brought us a masculous (Myatt) approach of endless analysis, division and multiplicity. We follow Evola who realized that Western life was “completely absorbed in ‘becoming’, with its focus on rational means, speed and technical efficiency.” (Clarke 2002: 57) The Völkisch movement and its occult societies were of course aware of this as well.

Vril as a victorious and transformative energy

With Serrano we concur that the West is facing “the shadowy age of involution, of the Kali Yuga”, “where nature has been abandoned to neglect by a rationalist and atheist science and technology.” (Serrano) Instead of a masculous science and technology (current industrial and technological revolution based on basic human needs) we must aim for a muliebral one (transformative, beyond humanism, one of bewilderment and awe) that does not aim for the disintegration of Eorthe into the abyss and nothingness (Serrano), for that is the path on which we are walking now.

This new approach of alchemical transformation is fueled by the Vril as victorious energy, as an accumulation of the power of

“anti-gravity of the unknown I, as a “truly transformative power which would fuel a virtual and biological mutation of the semi-divine race and of some man-animals into semi-divine men and thus making it possible to return to Hyperborea, to the Polar Thule. An inner, alchemical process, of transformation of the involuted being. A process of initiation by dregrees in the transfiguration of terrestrial man into celestial man, immortal.” (Serrano)

As Serrano writes this is truly transformative. Mytho-poetics are of great importance for the immortality of the human mind, of our Western Soul, and instead of creating new ones out of fiction, we should study the ancient occult theories on Thule, Aldebaran, Shambhala for these are transformative in themselves. Each of us must find the hyperborean Thule in our heart, for there we can start to build a new Solar Imperium and always with our our Death as perspective. Immortality is not something one achieves but immortality presents itself through us, through our Noble behavior, our Respect for Traditions, our inner ‘Vrilian’ transformation and the Transgression of all Laws. 

The Muliebral

In one of his latest texts “Tu Es Diaboli Ianua” Myatt asks the question whether Christianity “whether that religion is, given our thousands of years old human culture of pathei-mathos, a suitable presencing of the numinous”. A question that must lead us to the gnostic foundations of this Magian Weltanschauung as present-day Christianity enslaves its followers by installing an Iron law forged by a Godhead; an unquestionable male arch-divinity.

The Numinous, as seen by Myatt, is very much the Acéphalic concept of the Sacred, a “supra-personal, ‘cosmic’, perspective” towards the Divine, the Unreachable and which cannot be captured in words or ideas. While the Magian religions today monopolize the Sacred by installing a divine ruler who cannot be transcended, the true Mystic only worships his own devotion, the Nothingness, the Empty Space once occupied by God but now pronounced dead. Meister Eckhart did not describe the Sacred because of its absence as we humans cannot reach, imagine this. The Sacred can only be ‘sensed’ as it were, and through one’s pathei mathos one grows as an individual.

As Myatt describes there is a difference between a religious apprehension of the Numinous, the Sacred and the Paganus one. The religious experience, as taught today, is one that relies on books, scriptures, a certain distance, while the Paganus one means utter devotion (without book or scriptures) as it is all based on one’s inner experience, on the Numinous connexion one is able to make. There is no religious revelation of a higher truth commanded by an omnipotent god, but there is only wordless bewilderment (Heidegger).  Bataille would call this the non-sensical, non-sense, devoid of all meaning. This kind of bewilderment one experiences by making long walks in nature, by being masterd by the elements, by feeling lost in the woods, by feeling helpless as a child and yet feel connected with an im-possible and grand force of the Cosmic. All classic religious paths are founded upon control, upon worldly power and hubris, while classical paganism connects mortals to the cosmos, to the divine, to the numinous (Myatt). And as Myatt remarks and describes the Numinous is primarily a manifestation of the female, of the muliebral:

 “A muliebral presencing is or would be manifest in a predominance of female deities; or in a dominant female deity; in legends and myths which celebrate muliebral virtues, such as empathy, sensitivity, gentleness, compassion; and in the perception that personal love should triumph over and above adherence to abstractions. Considered exoterically – not interiorly, not esoterically – a muliebral presencing is manifest in a personal, varied, worship and devotion; in a personal weltanschauung and not in a religion; has no hierarchy; no creed, no article or articles of faith; and no texts whether written or aural.” (Myatt)

Of course, for a civilization to grow and to develop a masculous presencing is needed as well. This stands for hierarchy, order and control, and it protects Traditions, Culture, the community. But when we talk about true and fundamental re-ligare, truly connecting with the Sacred a muliebral presencing is needed. An authentic community needs a genuine, headless Mysticism, a Numinous connexion with its ancestral past, its Cultural history in order to truly ex-sist as Dasein. One’s Essence is always Numinous and cannot be bought or sold, but very few today are still aware of this. A multibral presence liberates one from the Mundane, from one’s unconscious search for power and control.

In my view the Vril force is therefore a most paganus and therefore muliebral force. The power which was derived from Vril included telepathy and telekinesis and the Vril was described as an enormous reservoir of psychic energy not only in the world at large but also in the human organism, only accessible to initiates. The author Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton had described this force in his book ‘the Coming Race’ (1871).

Interestingly, central to the Vril Society was the female medium Maria Orsic, known by the name of Sigrun, who claimed to have contacted extraterrestrials of the solar system of Aldebaran. We do not aim to go into the veracity of such claims, but it shows that there was a huge interest in the paranormal which had been banished by the Enlightenment and positivism. The female mystic has always occupied a special place in the occult history of our Evening Land.

Communities driven by Vril: a historical manifestation

Our sole purpose to refer to such a history is to show that there was a undeniable muliebral presencing in Europe at a time when industrialism and ‘correct’ sciences were sweeping all over Europe in order to destroy our Dasein’s connexion with Nature and the Cosmic. The positvist attitude reduced everything to something utilitarian and instrumental in order to turn everything into a ‘Gestell’ (Heidegger) for profit’s sake.

What we witness here is the unique convergence of the Numinous, an electrification by the ancient Vril force,  and the morphogenesis of a new movement which grew out of the necessity to banish the statism of Sovjet socialism and liberalism, both blind for masculous movements lead by greed and money. What esoteric-Völkisch National-Socialism at first embodied was the muliebral of the connexion, a truly religious/mystical experience, and the masculous of ancient Empires by divine inspiration. Here we witnessed for a short while the possibility of the resurgence of the Greek-Roman ideal and the complete man, the Ur-man (Serrano). Yet, driven by a  greedy war and industrialism (the manufacturing of weapons), the need for imperialism (criticized by Spengler, Heidegger & Jünger) National-Socialist Germany soon fell victim to productionist metaphysics as described by Heidegger, who first supported the revolution but then saw its disastrous turn towards imperialism, science, money.

All of the sudden the muliebral presencing was gone and this went back underground. The rise of neo-Völkisch groups such as Baelder, TBO, Sinister orders such as the ONA, mystical currents such as the Numinous Path however show that the muliebral flame of the Vril force is still burning. These ‘societies’ have taken the place of the Thule and Vril society to resurrect the supra-personal Völkisch Ethos (Authentic belonging-to, Authentic spirituality, nobility, humility, compassion, warriorship, Sein-zum-Tode and so on), the importance of the Eorthe (community) and the Cosmic (transgression of the Law, the limits) in one’s actions, thoughts, meditations, writings and art. This kind of bewilderment, which is fundamentally Pagan Greek in origin, has re-emerged from the murky history of Europe’s Kali Yuga.  What we witness here is an Authentic enthousiasm: becoming inspired by the Pagan Gods, the Dark Gods, the Numinous). The Vril force serves as an engine which revitalizes the West albeit the fact that we have to face the ultimately disastrous consequences of the hegemonic forces of the Kali Yuga.

The Power of the Vril force opens up a new perspective when a new culture and civilization will rise after the ultimate Ragnarokr. The masculous forces of management, ultra-liberalism, new age-isms, clashes of various cultures, economic imperialism, male dominance (as opposed to the wealth of the pagan Matriarchal systems) are all aimed to smother the mytho-poetic Vril force, yet as has been shown before the Vril is omnipotent and mytho-poetics will rise again after the Decline of the West. The Vril is a force that truly enlightens those who wish to focus on it, and the Vril is able to create a true community (of which Bataille and Heidegger spoke). With Bataille we emphasize the need for new communities (whether in the flesh or spiritually connected) as it is the first creed of the Bataillean Acéphalic group.

We must realize that as the decades will pass in the near future the muliebral presencing will become much harder to notice, and therefore it must be internalized so it can survive the Struggle (European but also Global) we are facing. And when we turn to Heidegger and the conservative Revolution, it is very clear that in times of Struggle only a strong, will-powered Community is able to embody Sacred values (an authentic Gemeinschaft). In the long run such a Gemeinschaft will turn out to be the victor because the current mundane Gesellschaft (economic, values, laws, …) is weak and corrupted by a slave morality. Such a Gesellschaft will in the end evaporate and a community/Gemeinschaft will raise its victorious voice. “War is the ultimate rationale, the Grund or ground, of Gemeinschaft.” Heidegger:

“That which neither the individual by itself nor the Gemeinschaft as such is, that must become manifest. The comradeshift of the frontline soldiers was grounded neither in the fact that they had to gather together with other humans because they needed them and could find them only at other places. Rather, at bottom it is grounded only in the fact that the nearness of death as a sacrifice placed each one in advance into the same nullity, so that this latter became the source of unconditional belonging-to-each-other.” (Heidegger)

So, it is not a matter of bargaining,  simple management, like the social democratics and liberals execute their policy, but it is a spiritual matter altogether. Bargaining is all about survival, hypocrisy, egotism, a mismanaged masculous handling. What the Vril force actually does, is point out to the Essence of Death in our Weltanschauung. Death is bound to Greek bewilderment, to en-thousiasm, to discipline, to loyalty, to the eternal Gemeinschaft:

“It is precisely Death – the death each human being has to die for himself and which singularizes each individual to the utmost extent – it is precisely death and the willingness of its sacrifice (=the willingness to offer one’s own death as a sacrifice), that first and foremost and beforehand creates the site of Gemeinschaft from which comradeship emerges. Thus, does comradeship grow out of Angst? No, and yes. No, if one, like the Philistine, understands by Angst the helpless quivering of panicky cowardice. Yes, if Angst is understood as the metaphysical nearness to the unconditional, a nearness that is given as  a gift to the highest self-sufficiency and readiness. If we do not compel power into our Dasein that, like Death as a free sacrifice, bind and singularize unconditionally – that is, powers that catch hold of each individual at the root of its Dasein and that, like Deaht as a free sacrifice, stand deeply and wholly in an authentic knowing – then no ‘comradeship’ will emerge. In that case, the result will at best be a modified form of Gesellschaft.” (Heidegger)

Inauthentic Dasein avoids being taken over by Being itself, by such a power which we name the Vril. Such a power remains concealed for those that let themselves by ruled by Das Man, by the Gesellschaft which does not care for the Numinous, the muliebral. Their Angst for Being is a helpless quivering of panicky cowardice in the Struggle. The Angst for those that had their Soul exposed to the Vril is what Heidegger calls this ‘metaphysical nearness to the unconditional, a nearness that is given as a gift to the highest self-sufficiency and readiness.” It is unconditional as there are no human laws or rules that are applied, but such Dasein ventures itself in an unknown territory, shared by other comrades and together the battle is fought. Each comrade is part of the Gemeinschaft which exists because of the preceding bond, “a bond that binds each individual to that which keeps bound and determines each individual in a super-elevating manner.” (Heidegger)

Thus, the Vril is a most powerful force as it re-introduces a non-instrumental view of looking at technology, at the Sacred powers of Eorthe (instead of exploiting its resources), at a new kind of science which has no interest in financial gain. Let us fully enjoy the power of mytho-poetics in order to celebrate a resurgence of the West, but let us also celebrate the Ragnarokr of our Evening Land, our global Sein-Zum-Todes. We are “human, all too human” and our tragic natures opens up the Sacred once again. The Vril will function as a volcano, as an eruption of a most deadly force, and it points at the outbrake of the Struggle leading up to an Authentic existence which honours the muliebral.

The last words are for Miguel Serrano:

“Now we are facing the shadowy age of involution, of the Kali Yuga, The use of power (Hvareno, Vril) is taught in Shambhala that permits the mutation of man and of the Earth; the warrior’s initiation is given, which makes it possible. Since ‘as inside, so outside’, the mutation of man into semi-divine and divine will permit the simultaneous transfiguration of the planet.” (Serrano)

The Acéphalic community

481135_10151152107320701_812420336_n

We must keep in mind the following acpehalic points of Bataille’s Programme drawn up in 1936. An important periode as the Great Depression ruled Europe and many intellectuals were dissatisfied with the parliamentary democracy, the industrial revolution. The Conservative revolution in Germany was the strongest outburst of dissatisfaction, but Bataille also shared a number of ideas. We must keep in mind though that Bataille did not seek for the birth of a new ‘political’ movement, but his Weltanschauung certainly had a return to the Sacred in mind for the West.

 1. Form a community, creative of values, values creative of cohesion.

2. Assume the function of destruction and decomposition, but as an accomplishment, and not as a negation of being.

3. Realize the universal accomplishment of personal being in the irony of the animal world and through the revelation of an acephalic universe.

4. Take upon oneself perversion and crime, not as exclusive values, but as integrated within the human totality.

5. Realise the personal accomplishment of being and its tension through concentration, through a positive asceticism and through positive individual and collective discipline.

6. Fight for the decomposition  and exclusion of all communities socialist, nationalist, communist or churchly.

7. Affirm the reality of values, the resulting inequality of men, and acknowledge the organic character of society.

8. Take part in the destruction of the existing world, with eyes open to the world to come.

9. Affirm the value of violence and the will to aggression insofar as they are the foundation of all power.

Meditate on these words and incorporate them in your Sacred  Weltanschaung. Today’s ultra political correctness and cheap leftist anthropocentrism has turned many of these statements into negative, forbidden and in-human principles. Yet our mysticism is of a Nietzschean kind: tragic, organic and true to the Eorthe, vibrant, the affirmation and destruction of life, truly human, un-relentless, poetic & mythological.  These statements are of an ultimate aeonic importance as they lay the foundation of a possible new Western world / civilization to come. One we cannot envisage or practically aim for, but we need to be reminded of a possible Return to the Origin of the West: the Greek bewilderment. This present World cannot be our aim as it would stifle our actions, but we must always remind ourselves of our Gnostic origin and the discontinuous state of Being.  

As Christos Beest (ONA) once explained the ‘earthing’ of acausal, Numinous forces is done by adepts and initiates of the Sinister Path, by warriors, poets and artists, and thus ‘earthing’ is laying/preparing the esoteric foundation of a new world to come.

Like Bataille we want to cultivate and re-instate the Sacred again and we genuinely believe in the need of an elective headless (anarchic – Jünger) communities in order to unleash the Numinous forces again. Bataille referred to these “as a secret society, network” or even an “order” in the truly religious or initiatory sense. Such communities were/are the setting for the examination of and experimentation with “truths that lacerate, which absorb those to whom they appear and is even animated by a movement which distances from them.” (Irwin, Saints of the Impossible, p. 19). The idea was to corrode the wider society through the sacred energies embodied by the community focused on figures of Death (our Sein-zum-Tode) and beyond any instrumental logic.” Acéphale had no explicit ‘political’ agenda, no goals beyond this one: “Existence, that is to say tragedy”. Our prophet aimed at a shattering of the “principle of the head” as all revolutions have historically lead to just another tyranny (one “head”) based on mundane and worldly power.

The “head” so to speak sucks up all the blood, all the vitality of the society, and therefore paralyzes all vitality, creativity by turning it into an obedient, lifeless servility. One must not forget that a society, a community is an organism just like our bodies and the blood needs to flow freely through the organism. There can only be a ‘leadership’ in the occult sense: those who have been initiated and gone through several ordeals. Their fearless and harsh leadership is beyond the need for power or domination, as they have transcended hubris. They are devoted to the collective and its numinous connexion.

Such communities, like the Nexions of the Sinister Tradition, genuine monastic orders exist beyond the mundane realm. Of course, they participate in ‘mundane’ actions such as taking care of and protecting each other, educating each other, making dinner, growing vegetables and so on, but all in harmony with their natural surroundings. These actions have become Numinous and therefore ‘reason’, as promoted by the Enlightenment and positivist science, has been left behind. These Acéphalic communities are not ‘managed’, but they are alive, they thrive from the blood energy of their member who remain faithful to ancient traditions and to the land where they have grown up. Therefore according to Bataille: “The formation of a new structure, of an ‘order’ developing and seething through the entire earth, is the only real liberatory act – and the only one possible.” (Irvin 20).

Like Bataille we genuinely are fed up with the inertia (still present) of the West, and we are dissatisfied with the instrumentalism that dominates the hegemonic Weltanschauung and so, poetic-ontologically, we have no choice but to think of alternatives. Today, orders such as the Order of Nine Angles, the remaining medieval monastic orders, occult groups with a Pagan Weltanschauung, Traditionalists all carry with them the everlasting flame, Pneuma of the Deus Absconditus. The life forms that are (being) established by them form that very alternative. As the West is slowly dying, infested by its own corruption and greed, these communities (even when they come and go) are the sign that alchemical gold grain of the West is not lost and still fertile.

These manifestations of the Vril strengthen me: GA WATH AM! The JOY before DEATH!

The Joy before Death: our eleven acts of sovereign aggression

temporary-8

These acts are based on Bataille’s ‘Les onze agressions’ of his secret group Acéphale. We have adapted some of them as our views differ in some respect, but the core remains Acéphalic, Sovereign and Anti-Human. 

What do we affirm?

  1. Chance & superiority – as a shield against the platitude of the plebian masses!
  2. A collective & strong unity with a Sovereign leader – as a shield against the falseness and the hubris of the modern ‘individual’!
  3. An elective & mystical blood community – as a shield gainst a ‘community’ based on mundane and egalitarian interests!
  4. The religious power of the relentless gift of the tragic self – as a shield against a military power based on material / emotional greed, restriction & self-preservation!
  5. A dark future open to radical changes and one which destroys all limits as a shield against the impotent ‘will’ to maintain the status quo!
  6. The tragic violator of the Law as a shield against compassion with the feeble and powerless victims of this modern era!
  7. Respect and admiration for the inexorable cruelty of Nature as a shield against the degrading image of the ‘good’ god of any monotheism!
  8. Free and mad laughter without limits as a shield against any reasonable and ‘scientific’ explination of the absurd universe we live in!
  9. A desire for and a genuine thirst for a great Destiny of the West – even the most worse and terrible-  against the abdication to pessimism or fear!
  10. The total absence of moral security and false foundations as a shield against the appearance of stability based on humane values!
  11. The Joy before Death as a shield against the cult of immortality!

What can you learn from this?

1. Never let the mass and its mundane, unimaginative and banal outlook on life dictate your way. Be imaginative and let chance rule your life.

2. Against the arrogance of the individual – the phantasm of individuality: a higher sense of community beyond petty and personal needs.

3. The history of Europe has shown what ideologies can lead to when they become the property of the masses. The Mysticism of the Blood is an esoteric notion and they are not crude, simplistic words. Underneath the vast blackened cosmos we are no-thing-s; thrown onto this planet left with our imagination. We must remain true to this Earth: bounded by the actual flesh that rots way and becomes one with the Prima Materia, the darkest of all soils. We need a selective order, a new aristocracy that is willing to plunge itself headlong into the Abyss.

Elected are those that share a tragic awareness. Memento Mori. Life offers no ulterior purpose but to experience it to the fullest: the Satanic Arts pay tribute to life’s vitalism and our Being-towards-Death.

Study Nietzsche! Study Heidegger!

4. We give our-selves away; a gift for the Other. Tragically as we are human all too human. Why should we – as a human species – try to survive? There can be no victory in this Kali Yuga. There is only torment as the Age of Brutalism develops itself.

5. Let’s not dwell in the past. Let us learn from the past. Our great traditions, but we must be willing to leave them behind as the Solar Outburst destroys most of life on Earth. The Future demands ever-becoming creation. Become energy! Become forever!

6. Monotheism has installed the Law, and one should aim to trangress it. This is a confirmation and a charge at the same time. Boundaries are there to be crossed. The Black Arts have always been practised at daggers drawn.

7. We are handed over to the Demiurg, the idle god. Let us accept over fate and be victorious in our futile rebellion. God does not offer any reconciliation for his place is empty and devoid of any hope. At the Left side of the Deus Absconditus, der verborgene Gott the Emptiness awaits us all.

Nature is most cruel and we are one of its most inventive and passionate instruments. Let us celebrate sadism, masochism for we are multi-perverse beings (Freud).

8. Let us not take our-selves too seriously. Consider the writings of Lovecraft. We are powerless in the hands of the Ancients, the Dark Gods, and as we can hear their mad laughter, standing before their altar (Deathspell Omega), we should join them. Their laughter is infectious. Ratio versus non-knowledge. Let us not be scientists, but alchemists of the flesh and the spirit.

9. There is no room for pessimism or fear for these affects paralyse our imagination. A tragic awareness does not hinder one’s creative powers. On the contrary, art for art’s sake, violence for violence’s sake, strengthen one’s resoluteness.

10. The Absence of ground and foundation opens up a multiplicity of possibilities and meanings. We do not coincide with our ‘selves’ because these are fictitious. Lacanian: we coincide with our Desire; it is our ever-lasting Desire that keeps us going. Ideologies offer imaginary resting-places while we should enjoy our energetic nature, the flux of becoming. Acausal becoming as we become nexions for the Dark Gods. Always grow!

11. We have been cursed with a wish for immortality against the Death Drive that truly fuels us. Monotheism, causal gnosticism, luciferianism … despite the formal differences they all promise a release from our gefallenheit. A terminus where we can sleep easily to all eternity. Bataille called Christianity the religion of work for the believer has to earn the remission of sins. While this does not apply to for example gnosticism or luciferianism there is an inherent enmity towards finitude. Instead of experiencing life to the fullest and eagerly accepting its extremes … Joy before Death.

Immortality does not belong to one personally. One becomes immortal by ever-becoming impersonal, by accepting the Void. A return to the Prima Materia.
