Priests have had always a strong influence on all emperors, starting with Pharaohs. Hermeticism is a predecessor of alchemy; alchemy is a predecessor of freemasonry. Science of the occult comes from the Sun - it is the explosion of Light.
Hermeticism is an ancient collection of occult teachings and its tradition is based upon a strange concept of two suns, which also transferred into alchemy. By the term “occult" we mean “hidden to our eyes" - the term is nowadays frequently replaced by the more modern one - esotericism. Alchemy, albeit partially a deceptive tool of certain (occult) groups to gain a control of medieval emperors, was apart from its physical experimentation with matter also a spiritual path with arcane philosophy; some adepts believed that they could find the Philosophers’ Stone (a materialized essence of God achieved by chemical experimenting with substances). The progress of success in one's work was termed as Black Sun - or Sol Niger - an old alchemic term. Hermes Trismegistos (ancient Egypt), who is supposed to be the author of various ancient scripts about hermeticism, had been an Egyptian.
When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold: there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth. . . "
Revelation 6: 12
The symbol of Black Sun had been used in ancient China more than 3000 years before Christ - the nephrite disc is found in archaeological excavations in graves of higher Chinese caste. It is a disc with a circle aperture in the middle. The aperture most probably signifies blackness of the sun during sun eclipse; the term “black" comes from this wonder of nature.
This symbol also personifies the Egyptian god Ra - a small dot in the middle of a circle is Ra's symbol in hieroglyph writing. The blackness in the middle can also be the “eye of God" (source: http://en. wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_symbol)
Black Sun is simultaneously a symbol of Indians and it can be found in several ancient cultures too. Does this name mean that eclipse has always been considered a gateway to secrets and expectations of significant changes? Nazis used this symbol too. Why?
Prima Matra and Vril
Prima Matra is an ancient term. The Matter, in accordance with this concept, had had its purest inward essence at the very beginning of Creation. It is Prima Matra.
Vril is a secret energy known in mystic waters under various names such as Holy Spirit, Mana, Prana, Philosophers’ Stone, Chi, Kundalini, Ilu or Orgone. . . The term Vril comes from a very interesting person. Edward Bulwer-Lytton was a playwright, poet and politician (1803-1873). He wrote a book (a kind of a utopia similar to Francis Bacon's New Atlantis) entitled The Coming Race where he describes a very advanced master race living in the underground, which the author had visited while exploring mines with his friend. The book is written so persuasively that many readers started to believe it had really happened. In addition, it also became a basis for establishment of few secret societies.
The name of the Nazi military organization SS could simultaneously hide from view another message - a secret SS part - an organization in the organization, as can be assumed by German abbreviation for Black Sun, which is Schwartze Sonne. An interesting argument that may support this notion is the factual existence of Black Sun in the Nazi heraldry (SS symbol was also: two flashes of lightning in the shape of S inside a dark circle).
A Vril society was formed, as claimed by authors Bergier and Pauwels in the 1960's, who also wrote another famous book entitled Le Matin des Magiciens. A very strong medium of the secret Vril society was Maria Orsitsch or Orsic (written differently, as it is a Croatian name) and she was first mentioned in a book written by the above authors (Bergier and Pauwels): Aufbruch ins dritte Jahrtausend: von der Zukunft der phantastischen Vernunft. The Vril society was purely a female group and Maria had allegedly contacts with extraterrestrials. But this was not the only secret group mentioned in reference to history of Germanic and Nazi secret movements. DHvSS (in German: Die Herren vom Schwarzen Stein) is a group of “men of black stone" the origin of which goes back to medieval Europe when Templars first visited the Orient. Of few other similar groups we may also mention Thule Society, which started in 1911.
Vril as a group slithered to life again from its black habitats and it is presently known as Causa Nostra. Their website has also some reference to German admiral Canaris, who participated in anti-Nazi opposition. Wilhelm Canaris was the head of Abwehr - German intelligence; he also stood behind attempts to assassinate Hitler. Canaris also saved lives of a number of Jews. Nazis executed him at the end of World War II. Canaris could be involved in many other secret activities of the Nazi Germany.
This is an enigmatic German goddess, but only a modicum of information is available about her; however, some references link her origin with Assyria. Isais is very similar to the Egyptian goddess Isis. Templars had allegedly imported her to Europe from the Orient in the year 1220 and thus the group DHvSS had been formed with Ilu as Holy Grail. I have this information from Thule temple, which is active in present Europe and has its website but only in German.
It is not any beautiful cup as most people might think, but rather a black dish or stone Jesus had allegedly drunk wine from; those who believe in the existence of this stone think that it has strong miraculous powers. The first reference about the Holy Grail made Chrétien de Troyes in a poem in about 1180-1191.
Traces of hermeticism are perhaps still visible including freemasonry. The bigger the secret comes into our hands, the more we are drawn by the magnetic possession and blackness of it into the overt oddities of the universe. The answer to this article's title is. . . hmm. . . probably yes.
