The Thule Society
Another turn of the century German/Teutonic occultic society, largely associated with the Nazi party and Adolf Hitler.
One of the more interesting parts about the Thule Society is their interest and apparent knowledge (before much exploration had taken place) of “New
Schwabenland”, what is now referred to as Queen Maudland region of Antarctica (strangely near Lake Vostok?)
During the mid 1920s to the early 1930s, at least 4 known expeditions (the latest commanded by Rudolf Hess, a known Thule member) were dispatched to
map and explore large sections of Antarctica. The early expeditions were funded by private sources (likely wealthy Thule members), and the later
expeditions, (Hess’ command) was funded by the Nazi government.
The last known Antarctic expedition used a copy of the Piri Reis map. (which dates at least to the 1500s, and appears to be a copy of an even older
map. The interesting thing about this map is that it is extremely accurate topographic representation of the Antarctic continent.... WITHOUT any ice
on it. It portrays the entire continent, minus the 2-5km thick ice, and has only been confirmed since the advent of satellite radar mapping in the
past 20 years... So, how does such a map get that kind of accuracy, dating from a time when humanity simply didn’t possess the technology to know
these facts?) It is rumored that Hess used this map to locate a submarine trench that bisected the continent (which does in fact exist), and
presumably used to set up submarine bases on the continent.
This of course leads very well into the theories surrounding Admiral Byrd and the never well explained Operation Highjump in 1946, immediately after
the end of WWII, when an entire naval taskforce and fully armed combat division “invaded” Antarctica, and sustained significant casualties...
Some interesting excerpts relating to the Thule Society...
Thule served as the recruiting and political action front of the German Order. Serbottendorff bought a failing Munich newspaper, the Beobachter which
he renamed the Volkische Beobachter and it became the official newspaper of the NSDAP.
A movement to promote Thulian ideas among industrial workers and to offset Marxism, was formed in 1918 - the Workers' Political Circle - with Thulist
Karl Harrer as chairman. From this came the German Workers' Party in 1919. A year later this became the NSDAP under the leadership of Adolf Hitler.
With the victory of the Nazi Party, the occult tradition was carried on in the Third Reich mainly by the SS, who Reichsfuhrer, Himmler, was an avid
student of the occult. An SS occult research department, the Ahnernerbe (Ancestral Heritage) was established in 1935 with SS Colonel Wolfram von
Sievers at its head. Occult research took SS researchers as far afield as Tibet. Sievers had the Tantrik prayer, the Bardo Thodol, read over his body
after his execution at Nuremberg.
The Thule Society inner circle had the following beliefs
Thule was a legendary island in the far north, similar to Atlantis, supposedly the center of a lost, high-level civilization. But not all secrets of
that civilization had been completely wiped out. Those that remained were being guarded by ancient, highly intelligent beings (similar to the
"Masters" of Theosophy or the White Brotherhood).
The truly initiated could establish contact with these beings by means of magic-mystical rituals.
The "Masters" or "Ancients" allegedly would be able to endow the initiated with supernatural strength and energy.
With the help of these energies the goal of the initiated was to create a race of Supermen of "Aryan" stock who would exterminate all "inferior"
In past programs, we have stated that the New World Order could not have been realized had it not been for the intense activities of various secret
societies throughout the world. We have mentioned one world-wide secret society, the Brotherhood Of Death Society, whose symbol is the skull with two
crossed bones. The German Brotherhood of Death Society is the Thule Society. Adolf Hitler joined this society in 1919, becoming an adept under the
leadership of Dietrich Eckhart. Later, the Thule Society selected Hitler to be their leader of the New World Order, as Eckhart revealed on his
deathbed, saying, "Follow Hitler; he will dance, but it is I who have called the tune. I have initiated him into the Secret Doctrine, opened his
centers in vision, and given him the means to communicate with the powers." (Trevor Ravenscroft, The Spear Of Destiny, p. 91).
The Thule Society came about as a result of a merger of two groups. Jorg Lanz von Leibenfells started the Ordens Neiu Templars in 1900. A vigorous
anti semite, He published a magazin called Ostara which often depicted paintings of strong jawed germanic types saving buxom german women from the
clutches of subhuman "Other Race " types. It caught on with the disaffected youth and he used his fortune to bolster his New Templar group. along
with that of many like minded rich men of the age with an interest in the decadence of the occult.
