Plastic Wax Factory Vol 06 67 - GREAT RACE OF YITH

GREAT RACE OF YITH. Time-travelling beings that dwelt on this world millions of years ago. The Yithians had no true physical forms but took up residence in whatever bodies they desired. The Great Race's history begins on the world of Yith. Though this was not their world of origin, the Yithians eliminated all information in their archives about their history before this migration for reasons that remain a mystery. According to one individual, the Great Race first took over the bodies of an amphibian-like race, which they used to build the spherical mechanical devices in which their minds were to dwell. (According to some, however, these  particular details regarding forms actually pertain to a group of Yithians who returned to their world after their exodus to Earth.) The Yithians spent aeons on this world and built many great cities there. In the end, an unknown doom befell them — possibly related to a wormhole technology experiment, or an attack by the flying polyps from the second world of that system — and they were forced to flee to Earth. Upon arriving on this world, the Great Race inhabited the bodies of immense cone-shaped creatures. Upon their arrival the Yithians were forced to fight off the flying polyps, the conical entities' natural predators. With their mastery of technology, the Yithians beat back the invaders, imprisoning them beneath the ground.
Periodic resurgences did occur, but the Yithians deal with these quickly and ruthlessly. After their victory over the polyps, the Great Race set about building their cities of buildings thousands of feet tall, creating their nuclear-powered vehicles and flying machines, and engaging in historical research. It was in the latter field that they made use of their extraordinary mental time-travel powers. To study the past, certain scientists would project their minds backward in time using a method much like astral projection. The Race was unable to physically interact with the past. The Race used a different technique to journey to the future. Usually, one of the exceptional members of the Race sent its mind into the future, selecting a body there from which it could study that time. When it found an individual, usually a scholar of exceptional ability, it exchanged minds with him or her, displacing the host's mind into the Yithians former body. The exchange lasted around five years, during which time the Yithian grasped the basics of life in its new society, afterward embarking on an exploration of the history, sociology, and mythology of the culture. Meanwhile, the host's mind wrote a history of its own time for the Great Race and, if cooperative, was allowed to make excursions outside the cities, consult the Great Race's libraries, and speak with other visitors from different worlds and times. After the Yithian learned all it could about the period it was visiting, it constructed a device that sent its mind back to the original body. The alien mind was hypnotized to forget the experience and returned to its own time. One flaw in this procedure was that the alien would have dreams of its imprisonment, and might even recall information about their world that they had learned from the Yithians. The Great Race considered these lapses to be annoyances and often dealt with them by another possession or through their operatives in that period, but they did not cease their research because of them. The Great Race also started a cult or cults known as the Motion which helped Great Race visitors in assimilating into the new period and silencing those formerly possessed minds who remembered too much of their captivity. These cults have on occasion set the stage for broader infiltration into a  particular period. The Tower of Babel, for instance, is said to have been a massive beacon allowing a physical gateway to form between their age and ancient Mesopotamia. Another experiment in modern times involved cloning new bodies for the visitors, but this is believed to have failed.
Around fifty million years ago, the flying polyps imprisoned by the Yithians rose up and defeated their ancient foes. The Great Race sent the minds of their  brightest scientists through time, ensuring the species' survival. They spent some time on Jupiter and then a dark star near Taurus (where they inhabited forms very similar to those they used on earth), and from there will travel to earth again, taking up the bodies of a coleopterous hive-mind fifty million years in the future. After that cycle comes to a close, they will inhabit the vegetables of Mercury, and continue their civilization in this manner. Some say that the remnants of the Great Race, incapable of possessing bodies, will return to this world someday, becoming known as the Dlyrion Tharkos or Dark Ghosts.
