One day we shall know, and psychology will then become a branch of physics. As regards the occupants of the house, which in a moment will be destroyed and who have only their eyes and ears, the V2 is, indeed, “about to” fall. The first book to explore in depth the Nazi fascination with the occult, Pauwels and Bergier also broke new ground with their study of jacsues, alchemy and its close kinship with atomic energy, and the possibility of a widespread mutation of humanity that jacqyes herald the dawn of a new age for the earth.

The concealment ofknowledge and power — The meaning of revolutionary war — Technology brings back the guilds — A return to the age of the Adepts — A fiction writer’s prediction, “The Power- House” — From monarchy to cryptocracy — The secret society as the government of the future — Intelligence itself a secret society — A knocking at the door 60 The Example of Alchemy I.


All operations are painful; but if there is to be any future, it is worth investigating. So long as men cherish the dream of getting something for noth- ing, money without working, knowledge without study, power without knowledge, and virtue without asceticism, so long will pseudosecret and 30 PART ONE initiatory societies continue to flourish, with their imitative hierarchies and their mumbo-jumbo that imitates the real secret language, the lan- guage of technicians.

At the sight of this massacre Asoka was overcome. This is a healthy reaction up to a point, but a short-sighted one. And yet political events overtook them. But before he died bergiier saw this progress take on a terrifying aspect. In the same way, we can quite well imagine in our own times a society with a secret technology of its own.
