Occult Cabalist Banker Prophesied Of Gulf Oil Apocalypse In 1903
June 20, 2010: Translation for Henry Makow / Henry Makow.com – June 19, 2010
In 1903, Austrian banker, writer and occultist Gustav Meyrink (right, 1868-1932) wrote a novella, “Petroleum, Petroleum”, part of a collection of short stories, which featured this Preface:
“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. Jessegrim 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 petroleum.”
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. They postulated that an oil reservoir released into the oceans would be an apocalypse and possibly destroy the entire earth. It would start with a huge explosion. The culprit (a Dr. No figure, “Dr. Jessegrim”) is motivated by blind hate of humanity. He destroys humanity via a “wrath of god” – the oil catastrophe.
Unlike dystopian stories like “1984” by George Orwell or “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, who made no such claims, Meyrink called his story a “Prophecy”. At the beginning of the story, he states quasi in notary fashion: “To assure priority of this prophecy, I state that the following novella has been written in 1903. Gustav Meyrink”.
With the discovery of his prophecy concerning the oil catastrophe in the Mexican Gulf, Meyrink could become posthumously famous in 2010. The best-known story of Meyrink is “The Golem” (1915), one of the Cabalistic treatments of the golem-saga where rabbis breathe life into a clay monster who vanquishes their enemies.
Meyrink ran a banking house between 1889 and 1902 and circulated his entire life in the occult world of Christian and Jewish mysticism, theosophy and alchemy. He was a member of the very influential Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a British secret society active at the end of the 19th and in the early 20th century. Its members included the Satanist, occultist, Cabalist, magician Aleister Crowley, a Freemason of the Old and Accepted Order of the Scottish Rite. He called himself, “The Great Beast 666”. It means that Meyrink was frequenting circles which welcomed the Apocalypse, which is exactly what he describes in “Petroleum, Petroleum”: An apocalypse. And a planned apocalypse.
Around 1900, the “magician and mystic” Aleister Crowley, in reality a drug-addicted megalomaniac, traveled to Mexico. It has always been known that due to the lack of real magic, one had always to help things along, which is why the only real background of magic is illusion – the representation of magic.
Until now, every magician was really an illusionist who interprets a natural event as magical. Or, an illusion as a natural event (see the attacks of 9-11). And while some developed an honest and entertaining art form out of this, others insisted on selling their illusions as real magic or natural phenomena.
Meyrink was frequenting such circles. Not only the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, but also the “Germania” lodge, the first lodge of the Theosophist Society. It was founded by (widely regarded con-woman) Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, who also founded the magazine “Lucifer”. Meyrink eventually realized that the so-called “séances” for contacting ghosts from the other side were “almost entirely relying on tricks or self-deception”.
One needs to point out that back then, people apparently fantasized about oil reserves spilling into the oceans, and doing so in the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, they believed this would become an apocalypse and could destroy the entire earth.
In Meyrink’s story, the perpetrator is motivated by blind hatred of humanity: The destruction of the “crowd” was seen by Meyrink/Jessegrim as possible only through a “god-given scourge” – meaning, the oil apocalypse.
Makow Note: I posted this information because it is pertinent that Occultists have been considering this form of attack for over a hundred years. I don’t know what, if anything, is going to happen.
