In 1903, Cabalist Banker Prophesied Gulf Apocalypse
(Translated by "Idiot Savant," from a German website "Kopp Online")
"In 1903, they knew that an oil reservoir emptying into the oceans would become an apocalypse and could destroy the entire earth."
In 1903, Austrian banker, writer and occultist Gustav Meyrink (left, 1868-1932) writes a novella, "Petroleum, Petroleum", part of a collection of
short stories, prefaced:
"To assure priority of this prophecy, I state that the following novella has been written in 1903. Gustav Meyrink".
The novella tells the story of Dr. Jessegrim who has made a fortune in the mescaline business. He decides to go into oil.
All of Mexico was standing on caves which were partly at least filled with petroleum, and connected with each other. Kessegram resolves to blast away
the separations between the caves. After the last detonation, the oil was to flow from the underground deposit in Mexico into the ocean and form a
glass surface, which continues to grow, taken by the gulf stream, soon covering the entire Atlantic surface. The coasts were barren and the population
retreated into the interior of the land.
Instead of being arrested, in Meyrink's story, Jessegrim is hired as a consultant. He says: "If the oil continues to spill as it does, it will have
covered the oceans of the world in 27 to 29 weeks and there will be no more rains, ever, as water can not evaporate anymore. At best, it will rain
First widely criticized, this prophecy (of Dr. Jessegrim) becomes increasingly plausible as the hidden flow does not stop, and when it increases
dramatically, panic grips humanity.
Cable from USA to EU: "Oil leaks increase constantly. Situation extremely dangerous. Advise immediately whether stink there is also unbearable".
In Meyrink's occult circles, they were fantasizing about oil reserves gushing into the ocean, from the Gulf of Mexico, covering the oceans.
