isis unveiled: chapter IX (as above, so below…)

“In his lecture on the Action of Natural Selection on Man, Mr. Alfred R. Wallace concludes his demonstrations as to the development of human races under that law of selection by saying that, if his conclusions are just:

“It must inevitably follow that the higher – the more intellectual and moral – must displace the lower and more degraded races; and the power of ‘natural selection’, still acting on his mental organization, must ever lead to the more perfect adaptation of man’s higher faculties to the condition of surrounding nature, and to the exigencies of the social state.

While his external form will probably ever remain unchanged, except in the development of that perfect beauty…refined and ennobled by the highest intellectual faculties and sympathetic emotions, his mental constitution may continue to advance and improve, till the world is again inhabited by a single, nearly homogeneous race, no individual of which will be inferior to the noblest specimens of existing humanity.”

Sober, scientific methods and cautiousness in hypothetical possibilities have evidently their share in this expression of the opinions of the great anthropologist. Still, what he says above clashes in no way with our kabalistic assertions.

Allow to ever-progressing nature, to the great law of the “survival of the fittest”, one step beyond Mr. Wallace’s deductions, and we have in future the possibility – nay, the assurance of a race, which, like the Vril-ya of Bulwer Lytton’s Coming Race, will be but one remove from the primitive “Sons of God”.”
