There is a stage in the disease of "progressive" syphilis (which is much harder to cure than ordinary syphilis) where the sufferer may have illusions of personal grandeur and be swept off his feet by egocentric ideas arising from his mental deterioration and unbalance. Hitler was one such sufferer. There is another curious fact about syphilis, and that is the course followed by the disease in the body itself. This course is identical with the path followed by the Serpent-Power (kundalini) as it moves upward from the sex centre to the brain centre, where it gives the true enlightenment. The imaginary enlightenment of a syphilitic dictator is thus its counterfeit satanic copy.
