"Karl Haushofer founded the “Bruder des Lichts”, which means Brothers of the Light. This organization is sometimes referred to at the Luminous Lodge. This group was eventually renamed the Vril-Gesellschaft as it rose in prominence and united three major societies: the Lords of the Black Stone, having emerged from the Teutonic Order in 1917; the black Knights of the Thule Society; and the Black Sun ..." | (I had never heard of the Vril Society having been named something else prior.)
The Thule Society (German: Thule-Gesellschaft), originally the Studiengruppe für germanisches Altertum ("Study Group for Germanic Antiquity"), was a German occultist and völkisch group in Munich, named after a mythical northern country from Greek legend. The Society is notable chiefly as the organization that sponsored the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (DAP; German Workers' Party), which was later reorganized by Adolf Hitler into the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP or Nazi Party)
"If we compare the Vril Society with the Thule society, the difference can be summarized as: the Thule Society was responsible for material and political things while the Vril Society had occupations that mainly concerned the BEYOND. But they still had some commonalities. Both were studying Atlantis, Thule, the "Blessed Them" Gilgamesh, the original relationship between the Germans and the Mesopotamians and the ancient shrines as Stronegg with stones."
