The Vril Engine is Built
Although they had the same objective — building the Vril engine — the Thule and Vril societies had different motives. The Thule Society was practical and foresaw a new energy source to exploit. The Vril were more concerned with making contact, learning from and potentially visiting the aliens on their world.
In 1922, Thule and Vril jointly produced the JFM (Jenseitsflugmaschine) or “Other World Flight Machine”. It was just the engine and was bench tested on a tether for two years. It was during this time that the antigravity and time distortion were noted. Without notice the JFM was abruptly taken apart and shipped off to the Augsburg works of Messerschmidt for “future use”.
The project had been led by Dr. W.O. Schumann (Technical University of Munich) who later developed a levitation unit from the research, which was called the Schumann-Munich or SM-Levitator. Dr. Schumann had an unusual view of science and technology, believing in two opposing principles: explosion (the work of Satan) and implosion (the Divine Principle). This idea was also held by the Templars (supposedly the “Secret” knowledge discovered by Pythagoras).
“In everything we recoguize two principles that determine the events: light and darkness, good and evil, creation and destruction — as in electricity we know plus and minus. It is always: either – or.”
These two principles – the creative and the destructive – also determine our technical means…Everything destructive is of Satanic origin, everything creative is divine… Every technology based upon explosion or combustion has thus to be called Satanic. The coming new age will be an age of a new, positive, divine technology!…” Dr. Schumann (from SS archives).
The Vril engine did not consume, explode or destroy anything in its operation. It fit perfectly with the Thule philosophy and motivated Vril research as participation in this “Divine Pinciple.”
