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.

Remember that H.P. Lovecraft often stated in the context of his stories that they were true and even prophetic. I’d also like to know from where the idea that the author was an occultist comes from. Neither Makow or his minions ever cite reliable sources for most of their contrived beliefs. Henry Makow and his cult of followers are trite little right-wing morons that often believe fiction to be fact. Makow’s notions about Pocahontas, for example, suggest that he thinks the Disney cartoon was a documentary! His bigotry knows no bounds and David Icke should be ashamed of himself for promoting this guy’s “work.”
