Schemata : Religio Proto-Indo-European Est Ab Origine

  • Aborigine European-identity insight : Proto-Indo-European (3500 B.C.), originally, at the beginning, had the same supreme god. All of these 8 branches of Indo-European languages, etymologically, reference the same oldest supreme, "heaven/ sky-father", god/ deva/ dewos/ theosthe same proto-IE root stem word meaning "to shine" (day/ deity, wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyeus) : Dag-da "day/ shining-divinity" (Celtic) | Týr father  (Teutonic) | Ju-piter (Latin) | Zeû[s] Pater (Hellenic) | Deivos, later called Rod (Slavic) | Dievas (Baltic) |  Tiwaz (Anatolian | "Dyeus Pita" (Vedic Sanskrit).      ...All these names are dialectical variants of the same word.
    Or, as the later, Iron Age, Julian the Apostate, the last non-Christian emperor of the Roman Empire (Constantinople), writing on Jupiter allegorically wrote, "...the Sun is the parent of us all... ...[like] 'The One,'... ...the light of the Sun bears the same relation to things visible as Truth does to things intelligible. ...this Whole... ... ...One indeed is the Creator of all things... ... ...the source... ... ...soul... ... ...the 'Invincible Sun,'..." (tertullian.org/fathers/julian_apostate_1_sun.htm 
  • "True" etymology is "tree" (Celtic, Teutonic, Baltic). In the native religion of Baltic Latvia, the word "faith" means tree (as does the same root, "druid") ;  their ancient symbol is Austras Koks "sun-tree" (Baltic) (and their other symbol swastika 卍 ). Akin to the Irminsul (Teutonic) meaning large-column (akin to Yggdrasil) columns devoted to the supreme sky god, ref. Widikund 970 A.D. ; "Jupiter Columns" (Latin; and Kalpavriksha (Sanskrit) tree-of-life/ "world tree" ;  and axis mundi (Latinmeaning pillar of world ;  Maypole (Teutonic, Baltic). 
         “To the Ancient Egyptians, the Tree of Life represented the hierarchical chain of events that brought everything into existence.”
  • Heilbringer/ Hælend—savior/ son of god (from whole, holy/ Hāligholier, heil/  hail/ wassail/ hello/ hi, heal, health (Teutonic)) : Krishna (Sanskrit), Mitra (Parsi), Odin/ Wōdan (Teutonic) stem meaning "raging"wot (god), word, whisper, water, wet, wise, wit, and witch/ wicca/ wizard are all from this stem ; related to vātēs (Latin) and fáith (Celtic) both meaning "seer, prophet", Dio-nysus (Hellenic) etymology is "deity of (world-)tree" the axis mundi.
    • Calvert Watkin's formula, "Hero slays [gwhen] dragon [snake, worm]." (—The dragon/snake, spouting fire, is the world tree/ axis mundi/ the One/ Apeiron (Hellenic)/ ground of being/ undifferentiated/ "the allfather"/ Pan/ Zhuangzi's "obliterating [of pairs of opposites] unity with the Dao". —Slays the dragon—slays the "thou shalt" says Nietzsche's Zarathustra—overcoming Eliot's "Wasteland" of inauthentic life.) (Sigurd understood birds’ speech after eating Fafnir’s heart, and Odin transformed himself into a serpent in order to obtain the mead of poetry, in Norse carvings the snake merges into the tree, etc..) 
      • Wod, Wut, and Wodan/Odin means inspiration, ecstasy (ex-stasis)/ fury, rage, madness/ insanity. —"...menos came from the heavens, heroes owe their great deeds to it" :  menos (Hellenic) | manas (Sanskrit) | mania (Latin), wut (Teutonic). Virtus, Audacia, Wut, Woths, Ódhr, Furor, Dásacht, Thyás, and Ferg : the Indo-European sacred fury. The substantial original equivalence of the concept of the Latin Virtus and the Germanic Wut, remarked by Roman authors themselves (who deified Virtus as the opener of the gates of divine glory to their military commanders) to describe the magical and sacred charisma venerated in the field of martial arts among the Celtic and Teutonic tribesmen. Comparing Latin, Hellenic, Teutonic, Celtic, and Sanskrit terms, the various Indo-European expression of the sacred fury as a driving, transfiguring and mystical force in which the warrior took over human and extra-human traits, etymologically closely related to the invocation of divine light and the "storm" in the warrior sacrifice.

      • "All Indric religious systems have as their ultimate purpose life-transcendence (moksha) because all assume that sentient existence is a false perception of reality (maya), the facade behind which lies The One (tat ekam), brahman, who, formless, and because formless eternal, is the sole reality." 
    • Dharma (Sanskrit), darna (Baltic), and harmonia (Hellenic)all 3 come from the same root word (ar-) meaning "to fit together" ("reconciliation of opposites"). 
    • ātman—to breath (pneuma and psychē—to breath, thymos—to fume (Hellenic), ghost/ Geist—to breath (Teutonicspiritusflame, anima (Latin), soul—"of sea" (Teutonic, Baltic), dúch—to breath (Slavic). ...Ātman is the Kantian "first principle" ;  and is identical with the transcendent self Brahman. ...Aristotle (384 B.C.) defined the soul, or Psūchê, as the "first actuality" ("Actus Primus") of a naturally organized body, and argued against its separate existence from the physical body. ...Fukuyama (Hegel as interpreted by Kojève as interpreted by Fukuyama) argues that the desire of identity groups for recognition/ dignity/ respect (thymos—"the seat of judgments of worth", the “master concept”)—the obsessive particularism of ethnic identification—is the key threat to liberalism. ...I/ iche/ ego is the soul said Kant ;  later, (ground-of-) being, self, identity have been referents to soul. ...Ancient Egypt (whose most ancient DNA was European, 2018 cemetery study) god Thoth created the world by the force of his word. Along with this Thoth concept, most of the Torah's stories were "appropriated" from Egypt, Hellenes, Sumer, Parsi, and Canaan by the Judean elites while writing the Torah in Babylon (then, as it is written in the Torah, when they returned from Babylon, they mysteriously found it, the scroll, hidden in the wall of the ruins of the old temple). Even Moses name and his law was copied from an Egyptian story. And, Samson, ark/ flood, garden/ Eden, etc. were copied from other host races. 
    • Karma from root kwer means to do (Sanskrit), wyrd from root wert means to turn or rotate and Örlög meaning ur-law (Teutonic) | logos meaning law/ coda/ word (Hellenic), dán loaned from Latin don (Celtic), and the Fates/ Moreia from root bha means voice (Hellenic). 
  • mythosreligioheidinn sidr ("pagan custom")/ ethnikos/ pagangens-tile
    • Ásatrú (wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesir-Asura_correspondence) is a form of ancestor-worship. (As of 2007, Ásatrú is a religion officially recognized by the governments of Iceland, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. (While Romuva is recognized by Lithuania—rom (Baltic) equals ram (Sanskrit) ;  and numerous pagan Slavic sects in Slavic speaking countries.) : 
      • (Ása-trú refers to) Æsir (Teutonic) is the plural of ássóss "god", or anses "half-gods". Word-stem from Proto-Indo-European *h₂énsus "life force" (cf. Avestan aŋhū "lord ;  lifetime", ahura "godhood", Sanskrit ásu "life force". It is widely accepted that this word is further related to *h₂ens- "to engender" (Hittite hass- "to procreate, give birth", Tocharian B ās- "to produce").  
  • "Indo-Aryans [the earliest Hindus], like the Greeks and Romans, maintained a sacred fire in the household that represented the family and was never supposed to be extinguished unless the family [male] line itself was extinguished. In all of these cultures, the fire was worshiped as a deity that represented the health and well-being of the family—not just the living family, but also the family's dead ancestors stretching back over many generations. Religion and kinship are closely connected in tribal societies. Ancestor worship is particularistic... You have duties only to your ancestors... 'The funeral obsequies could be religiously performed only by the nearest relative... They believed that the dead ancestor accepted no offerings save from his own family; he desired no worship save from his own descendants.' Moreover, each individual has a strong interest in having male descendants, since it is only they who will be able to look after one's soul after one's death. As a result, there is a strong imperative to marry and have male children; celibacy in early Greece and Rome was in most circumstances illegal. The result of these beliefs is that an individual is tied both to dead ancestors and to unborn descendants, in addition to his or her living children. As Hugh Baker puts it with regard to Chinese kinship, there is a rope representing the continuum of descent that 'stretches from Infinity to Infinity passing over a razor which is the Present. If the rope is cut, both ends fall away from the middle and the rope is no more. If the man alive now dies without heir, the whole continuum of ancestors and unborn descendants dies with him... His existence as an individual is necessary but insignificant beside his existence as the representative of the whole.' ...Belief in the reality of dead ancestors binds individuals together on a far larger scale than is possible in a family... The 'community' is not only the present members of the lineage, clan, or tribe; it is the whole rope of descent from one's ancestors to one's unborn descendants." (Fukuyama) ᛟ 
  • Teutsch/ Deutsche/ Týr/ Tíw/ Thing/ Mannus ᛏ (Teutonic) all cognate to Manu (Sanskrit).
  • thunder god : Thor/ Donnar ᚦ uses axe (Teutonic) | Perun uses axe (Slavic) | Perkūnas uses axe (Baltic) | Indra uses axe (Sanskrit).
  • Sun goddess (Celtic, Hellenic, Latin, Teutonic, Avesta Parsi, Sanskrit, Hittite). And moon god (Slavic, Teutonic, Baltic).
  • "horse twins" : (Baltic, Teutonic, Hellenic, Latin, Ashvins : sunrise and sunset via chariot Sanskrit). (solar chariot)
  • 3 seasons—3 holi-day feast-days :  1.)  Easter—an Ôstara/ Easter fertility goddess of various cognate names (Baltic, Teutonic, Vedic Sanskrit, Avesta Parsi, Hellenic), 2.)  Midsummer solstice, and 3.)  Maruts (Sanskrit)/ Wild Hunt/ Einherjar, Yule ⊕ (Teutonic). 
    • ∴ There is a single Proto-Indo-European religion.  ∵ One clade (Y Haplogroup) conquered and then interbred with the conquered. (In Europe, Pontic-Steppe R1a/b men conquered Europe's original I1/I2 men). 
    • ...proverb :  "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."

    "There was a theory, increasingly well supported, that eating is what killed you. They found that rats on extremely restricted diets, rats who ate very few calories, lived impressively long. They saw the same results with other animals, up to and including chimpanzees. They suspected, but could not prove, the same was true of humans. Every little bite of food was another step towards death."

    IIS hosting

    1. From a PC use the Windows Professional's IIS to host an .aspx page that uses SQL Server Express 2005.
      1. boutell.com/newfaq/creating/hostmyown.html
      2. Include some notes & directions howto:
        1. Open up the IIS window on the PC by doing so: >My Computer >Manage >Services and Applications >IIS
        2. >Local Disk E: >Inetpub >ftproot (Go here to check the stuff that gets hosted (Thus FTP to here).)
        3. Then go to http://localhost/ in a browser's address bar to view the test .aspx page
        4. Etc...
    2. Take the dynamic IP of our IIS and put it in the browser's address bar to test. (Ex.
    3. Get a static IP from DynDNS.com and add it to the IP input field in mydomainname.com's GoDaddy dashboard. Thus mydomainname.com with GoDaddy will point to the IP of our IIS server hosting PC.
    4. We are getting an error when our page includes a database stuff: aspspider.com/resources/Resource170.aspx
    5. Add mydomainname.com to here domains.live.com (What this service does, I do not know yet.)
    Much later TODO:
    1. Set up a mail-server on the said IIS (or activate it if one is included with it)
    2. Take the DNS settings from Hotmail and add them so email messages to mydomainname.com's domain name get sent to his said domain name (ex. bob@mydomainname.com).
    3. MX (Mail Exchange) records are used in DNS records (or Zone files) to specify how email should be routed.
    1. With IIS7 Rewrite module a website can have a .htaccess file. See hanselman.com/blog/ASPNETMVCAndTheNewIIS7RewriteModule.aspx.


    VB: Regular Expressions, etc...

    Regex.IsMatch("subject", "regex") ' Checks if the regular expression 
    ' matches the subject string.

    VB: using Controls collection

    ' Clears textbox controls' content on the form using 
    ' Controls collection.
    Dim intX As Integer
    Do While intX < text = "" intx =" intX">


    Sub Page_Load()
        If Page.IsPostBack = False Then
            ' Store URL Referrer to return to home page.
            ViewState("UrlReferrer") = Me.Request.UrlReferrer.ToString()
        End If
    End Sub
    Sub CancelBtn_Click()
        ' Redirect back to the home page.
        Me.Response.Redirect(CType(ViewState("UrlReferrer"), String))
    End Sub

    ASP confirm

     gt-a-s-p:button id="ConfirmOnClick" runat="server" onclientclick="return
    confirm('You\'re sure you want to do this?');" text="Launch Airstrike"> lt/ a-s-p:button> 

    ASP .NET set focus to a control (javascript)

    body onload="javascript:document.forms[0].txtFirst.focus();"


    check for DbNull

    Check for DbNull:
    <_a s p :Label runat="server" ID="Label6" Text='< % # IIF(Typeof(
    Eval("ShippedDate")) IS DbNull,"No Date",Eval("ShippedDate")) % >' />
    <_%# ((Convert.IsDBNull ... I am telling ASP to give the picture a height value only if the value in the database is not NULL. I could've done this in the SQL instruction, but I decided to do it inside the Datalist.
    <_%# ((Convert.IsDBNull(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataI tem, "height"))) ? "" : "height = " + DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "height")) %> 
    Or maybe this for NULLs?: <_%# Eval("First", "{0}, ") %_>
    Or check for NULL in T-SQL:
    ISNULL(check_expression, replacement_value) If 1st is NULL, return 2cnd.


    Search Stored Procedures

    This searches all the Stored Procedures in 1 SQL Server database for the said string. I tested it in Query Analyzer and it found all the Stored Procedures that had occurrences of my "lq_Campaign" in 1 database:

    Here is another way

    Below query you can searcg any table, stored procedure or views what ever has that expression as a column or object name.


    The query produced all the object names--where ever it finds expression like ‘PRODUC‘.

    Model View Controller

    • Primary goal is to separate the things that change from the things that do not.
    • Model is the data representation.
    • View is the presentation of the model.
    • Controller responds to events and modifies the model.
    • Model notifies the views to update the presentation.

    After using the SSIS > VS Export wizard for table to Excel, you must add DROP TABLE Query to the Event Handlers tab or else it will error the second time it is reRun. SSIS

    SSIS > VS Import wizard for Excel to table:

    • Be sure to only checkmark Results$.
    • Be sure to Select Delete table option.
    • Be sure to Change Results$ name to Destination table name.
    • If there is an error, it is often because a row in Excel has a NULL but the table column is NOT NULL (so add a blank to the Excel field).

    Note 2: A DB "restore" by the DBA would nix Destination tables that do not exist in Source tables; but not this technique.

    SQL notes

    • SELECT DISTINCT * INTO ##temp3 from ##temp2 --Use this if I want to INSERT rows AND create the destination table.
    • WHERE ##temp1.Area <> ##temp2.Area -- The 'WHERE <>' stops a cartesian join.
    • SELECT * INTO ##temp3 FROM (SELECT * FROM ##temp1 UNION SELECT * FROM ##temp2) un
    • strSQL = "IF OBJECT_ID('tblTempNIS_Qtrly_SumByRUN_and_crc', 'U') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE tblTempNIS_Qtrly_SumByRUN_and_crc" ' This is not really a temp table because no #; so must DROP. It's a helper table. Couldn't use a temp because mData's Clear lose the data for the next query's use of it. ' The ", 'U' " is optional; it just insures that the object is a user table and not, for example, a sproc or other type of object.
    • ' To get all information about the @@Error value that is returned in the output parameter 
      ' From Master database 
      ' SELECT * FROM sysmessages WHERE Error = 2627 ' type value in rdoQy(3) here
    • --NWDSQL.BmrkSource.PendingPublish is empty for 2003-2004. Thus do this to populate it with rows from the other table:
      INSERT INTO BmrkSource.dbo.PendingPublish
      SELECT NEArea,IdentifierCode,EndDate,NumberOfPeople,Week,ItemCodeID,Ratio --Note: Published has 1 extra column at the end so I must list these out.
      FROM NELausData.dbo.Published
      WHERE NELausData.dbo.Published.EndDate LIKE '2004%'
      OR NELausData.dbo.Published.EndDate LIKE '2003%'
    • The INNER JOIN returns all rows from both tables where there is a match. If there are rows in first table that do not have matches in second table, those rows will not be listed.
    • The LEFT JOIN returns all the rows from the first table, even if there are no matches in the second table. If there are rows in first table that do not have matches in second table, those rows also will be listed.
    • The RIGHT JOIN returns all the rows from the second table, even if there are no matches in the first table. If there had been any rows in second table that did not have matches in first table, those rows also would have been listed.
    • SQL Server is phasing out text, ntext, and image. There’s no way to know how long SQL Server will support the older data types. Upgrade legacy applications to varchar, nvarchar, and varbinary.


    How to get a DB and send it....

    You can backup the DB from the server and then restore it on your local machine with installed MS SQL Server 2000. Then you can change or delete any pruned info from the DB on your local machine. Then you can backup the modified DB again and send that backup file (*.bak file). You can send this file with Gmail. There is about 3Gb available space.
