Intimations of Cosmotheism: Aviation, the Cosmos, and the Future of Man

Charles Lindbergh-2

by Charles A. Lindbergh (pictured)

EDITOR’S NOTE: This piece is the second in a series of articles which will illustrate some of the earlier intimations, in the works of other writers and thinkers, of the central ideas of Dr. William Pierce’s philosophy, Cosmotheism.

Here the great aviator, scientist, and patriot Charles Lindbergh speaks of the advancement of man on the eve of our race’s first steps on another world in 1969; he hints at a higher type of man whose dawn may be seen if we can “contrive a new process of evolutionary selection,” and speaks of an awareness that our lives — and even Life itself — may only be way stations on a journey of increasing consciousness, the next stage of which even our best minds cannot yet imagine. — Kevin Alfred Strom.

AVIATION AND ASTRONAUTICS were once my prime interests.

Defiance, Centennial Edition, p. 61:

“MY FIRM conviction. . . is that the highest purpose of life is to forward the growth of a superior humanity, whose role is to rule a healthy world. No means are too ruthless that can bring us nearer to that goal.” (ILLUSTRATION: Savitri Devi in 1925)

Defiance, Centennial Edition, p. 234:

“The divinely ordained differences, expression of the impersonal will of the Sun, can only be maintained, nay, increased, according to the highest purpose of Creation which is to evolve perfect types, if each race is maintained pure,” said I. “And that is why, knowingly or unknowingly echoing the wisdom of ages, a great German of today, a close collaborator of the Führer has written: ‘Only in pure blood does God abide’.”
