Schema : Religio Proto-Indo-European Est Ab Origine

"The New Testament is the gospel of a completely ignoble species of man; its pretensions to th high values—indeed to all values, is as a matter of fact, revolting even today."  (Nietzsche)  
  • Aborigine European-identity insight :  Proto-Indo-European (3500 B.C.), originally, from the beginning ("est ab origine"), had the same supreme god ("lord god", "father"—as in ancester [Väter] worship).  Filling the Schmittian sovereign function over other gods ;  a sovereignity upon which kingship could be built.  All of these 9+ branches of Indo-European languages, etymologically, reference the same oldest supreme, "shinning/daylit/sky/heaven"-father, god/deva/dewos/theos/divine—the same proto-IE root stem word meaning "to shine" (deity, wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyeus ;  but English "day" is from a different root) :  
    Dag-da "daylit/shining-divinity" (Celtic) | Týr/Tiw/*Ziu/Tyz/*Tiwaz vater ᛏ (Teutonic) | Ju-piter (Latin) | Zeû[s] Pater the europa ("wide-eyed" thus all-seeing) (Hellenic
    ) | Deivos, later called Rod (Slavic) | Dievas (Baltic) | Tiwaz (Anatolian) | "Dyeus Pita" "the all-seeing god" (Vedic Sanskrit) | Daeva (Avestan Zend).  (Suffix us/os/os/as/az/óss meaning "god".)  ...All these "daylit" 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.htmᛋ  
  • In SlavicTeutonic, and Baltic mythologies, the world was represented by a sacred tree, usually an oak.  "True" etymology is "tree" (Celtic, Teutonic, Baltic).  ("The original meaning of the root was doubtless 'to be firm, solid,' and from it is derived not only the family of English TREE but also that of English TRUE. Note that the semantic evolution has here been from the general to the particular, from 'solid' to 'tree' (and even 'oak' in some dialects), and not the other way around.")  In the native religion of Baltic Latvia, the word "faith" means tree (as does the same root for Celtic "druid", tru-wit) ;  their ancient symbol is Austras Koks "sun-tree" (Baltic) (and their other symbol swastika 卍).  Akin to the Irmin-sûl (Teutonic) meaning Aryaman(Vedic)-schaft (akin to Yggdra-sil) pillars devoted to the supreme daylit-god, ref. Widikund 970 A.D. ;  "Jupiter Columns" (Latin) ;  and Kalpavriksha (Vedic) tree-of-life/"world tree" or the Ashvattha bodhi tree (Rg-Veda, the earliest surviving Indo-Aryan text, and Upanishad) ;  and axis mundi (Latin) meaning pillar of world ;  Maypole (Teutonic, Baltic).  Perhaps the tree, that firey snaking rotating pilar, is Brahman in the Atman, god in the soul, being, "the supreme identity" of the Perennial Philosophy of paganism.
                 “To the Ancient Egyptians, the Tree of Life represented the hierarchical
    chain of events that brought everything into existence.”
  • Heilbringer/Hælend—healer/holier/savior/son of god (from whole, holy/Hālig, das Heilige (the sacred), heal, heil/hail/wassail, heal, health (Teutonic)) :  Krishna (Vedic), Mitra (Avestan), Óðinn/Wōdan/*Wōðanaz ("lord of frenzy") (Teutonic) stem meaning "raging"wot (god), word, whisper, water/voda, wet, wise, wit, veda, 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.  "As a part of the Frazerian 'dying god' myth, it is a symbolic victory of growth over stagnation or dormancy in the cycle of the year, and ultimately a victory of rebirth over death."  "The hero as archetypal scapegoat or eniautos daimon [sun king/year king].") 
    • "The traditional Old English dragon slaying formulas: wyrm acwealde 'killed the worm'."  (Thor slays serpent.  Indra, the "dragon-slayer", slays serpent.)  Calvert Watkin's singular Indo-European formula, "Hero slays [gwhen] dragon [snake, worm]."  Hero "overcomes" death/"resistance", says Watkins of the Sanskrit word stems.  —The fire-breathing dragon/snake, a three-headed serpent named *Ngʷhi ("serpent" ;  and the Indo-European root for negation), is, perhaps, the world tree/axis mundi/the One/Apeiron/henosis (Hellenic)/grund of being/undifferentiated/"the allfather"/“René Guénon calls this union “the Supreme Identity”/Zhuangzi's "obliterating [of pairs of opposites] unity with the Dao".  —Slays the dragon—slays, perhaps, the ego—slays the "thou shalt" (Law) says Nietzsche's Zarathustra—overcoming Eliot's "wasteland" of inauthentic life, a word lifted from Celtic grail legend’s Parsifal hero’s journey.  "When, o Indra, you slew the firstborn of serpents, then did you outtrick the tricks of the tricksters."  (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.  Sigemund.)      
      • Diogenes Laërtius summing up Heraclitus's philosophy :  "All things come into being by conflict of opposites, and the sum of things (τὰ ὅλα ta hola, "the whole") flows like a stream."
      • Wod, Wut, and Wotan/Óðinn means inspiration, ecstasy (ex-stasis)/fury, rage, madness/insanity.  —"...menos came from the heavens, heroes owe their great deeds to it" :  menos (Hellenic) | manas (Vedic) | 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 Virtus (Vedic) and the Wut (Teutonic), 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 Vedic 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. ...Woden is etymologically cognate to Latin vates, “inspired poet” (wherefrom Collis Vaticanus, “poets’ hill”, which became the Vatican). 
      • "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." 
    • The ātman is the soul attached to the body (Vedic)—to breath (pneuma and psychē—to breath, thymos—to fume (Hellenic), ghost/Geist—to breath (Teutonic), spiritusflame, anima (Latin), soul—"of sea" (Teutonic, Baltic), dúch—to breath (Slavic), Agni, fire (Vedic). ...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.  The soul—thymos, the One, is (the urge to) identity.  ...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 Anatolian, 2018 cemetery study) god Thoth created the world by the force of his word.  Along with this Thoth concept, most of the Torah 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).  (The Moses character and central story, and justification for retaking Canaan, was not written anywhere prior to the Babylonian Captivity.  Moses name and his law was copied from an Egyptian story.  And, Samson, ark/flood, garden/Eden/tree/snake, etc. were copied from other host races.  But not "Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, and other proto-historical Bedouins."  (De Benoist)  Judaism is classed by antrhopologists as a particularistic endogomous ancestor-worship faith tradition. 
      • "Note, Soul is a Saxon Heathen word. The Christian words are the Hebrew Ru'ach and the Greek Pneumatos, meaning 'spirits', or more specifically breath. God breathed life into Adam in the bible. When someone dies, they have a last breath, where their spirit leaves the body. When a Christian sneezes, people said 'God bless you' due to the belief a christian just lost some of their pneumatos (spirit.) The word 'pneumonia' comes from the Greek word for spirit/breath. The word Soul is a word borrowed in the Bible from Germanic Heathenry. A Soul is not in Hebrew thought, this word is in Old English and Old Saxon, and comes into modern English from Old English."  (Sass)  ...Ferah "one's life-spirit ;  tree".  Teutonic :  "Ferah [ātmanan individual instantiation of brahman] is a part of a person you cannot see, it makes the person alive, and dies when the person dies."  "Gest is a part of a person one cannot see. It doesn't die when the Ferah and person dies. It can leave the body."  "Siola [brahman, the generalized abstract class of ātman] is a part of a person one cannot see. It never dies."  (Sass) 
      • Dharma (Vedic), darna (Baltic), and harmonia (Hellenic)—all 3 come from the same root word (ar-) meaning "to fit together" ("reconciliation of opposites").  The ar- in "Aryan" meant ar- "to fit", read as "allied, friendly, to give, one's ethnic group."  Cognates of which were used for ar-istocrats from Ireland to India.  (As well as the ar- in hero, aryaman, earl, etc...)  Irminsul (Teutonic) and Airiiaman (Iranian ) and Éremón (Irish).  —Cosmology :  Irmin-straße (Teutonic) "Irmin’s street" = Milky Way.  Aryamṇáḥ pánthāḥ (Old Indic) "Aryaman path" = Milky Way.  (academia.edu/35486756/Iarl_and_Iormun-_Arya-and_Aryaman-_A_Study_in_Indo-European_Comparative_Mythology
      • Karma from root kwer means to do (Vedic), wyrd (weird) from root wert means to turn or rotate, lit. "to become"—"It seems, explains Jean Varenne, that the Indo-Europeans professed that fate is in fact the expression of the necessary chain of our acts (law of causality);" 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). 
  • mythos/religio/folklore/ Rita (Vedic), heidinn sidr ("heathen custom/rite").  (Before Christians dominated Rome, Christians were called "athiests" in Rome, for rejecting their Roman "ancestor cult" of their fathers.) 
    • Ásatrú (wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesir-Asura_correspondence) is a form of ancestor-worship/"ancestor cult" (as are all Indo-European religions)—your (neurological) soul comes from your ancestors (Väter), your liniage—it is inherited.  (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 (Vedic), and Dievturība is recognized in Latvia ;  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", Vedic 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 [Latin "altar" means burn platform] 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 [male] 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 
    • "A specific character of the most ancient cults of the most ancient Aryan societies was its anti-universalism. Ancient man did not turn to a God in general, a God of all men and all races, but the God of a lineage, in fact, of his gente and his family. And vice versa: only the members of the group that corresponded to them, could legitimately invoke the divinity of the domestic fire and to think that their rites were efficacious."  (Evola)  Lithuania kept sacred fires burning until 1300. 
    • "God did not create the world, he unfolds in him and through him. It is not 'present everywhere' in the world, as simple pantheism maintains; rather it constitutes the dimension of the world which, globally as well as locally, gives it meaning according to what we do there.  The affirmation of the substance of God being identical to that of the being of man, " ... ... "In other words, God is born in the soul of man; it is generated in and by the human soul. God comes to man to be born, to 'become' within his soul." ... ..."What makes the oracle of Delphi silent, remarks Jean-Luc Marion, is not some deception finally discovered (Fontenelle), but the disappearance of the Greeks"  (de Benoist)
    • "...the Bhagavad-Gîtâ, the most authoritative source in everyday Hinduism... Moreover, the Gîtâ itself is explicit enough about the understanding of caste identity as hereditary and implying endogamy. When its hero Arjuna [meaning "white"] shies away from battle and displays a failing in the martial quality (guna) befitting a warrior, his adviser Krshna [his soull does not tell him that by guna he clearly isn’t a Kshatriya and hence free from military duty, but instead tells him to overcome his doubts and do his Kshatriya duty, for regardless of his personal traits he just happens (viz. by birth) to be a member of the Kshatriya caste.  [¶]  When the two argue opposing positions regarding the justice of waging the fraternal war, they do so with reference to the same concern, viz. the need to avoid varna-sankara, roughly ‘mixing of castes’. Both say that the other’s proposed line of action, viz. fighting c.q. avoiding the war, would lead to the ‘immorality of women’ and thence to breaches of caste endogamy.  When in a society two opposing arguments are based on the same value, you know that that value is deeply entrenched in that society,— i.c. caste as an hereditary communal identity guarded by endogamy." 
      • The origin of the Vedas can be traced back as far as 1500 BCE, when a large group of nomads called Ârya (the descendants of "father Manu" would say the Ârya, not "father Abraham"), coming from Iran (originally from Pontic-Steppe) crossed the Hindu Kush Mountains, invading into the Indian subcontinent.  ...Today the Finnish and Estonian word for slave is orja, from Ârya ;  proving that even in northern Europe, the first Indo-Europeans called themselves Aryans, not just in Iran and India.
  • Tribe, Teutsch/Deutsche/Týr/Tíw/Thing
  • Horse riding "divine twins" :  originally Manu and Yemo. Hengis and Horsa (Teutonic) common on rooftops of England and Germany, Remus and Romulus (Latin), Castor and Pollux (Hellenic), Aśvins (Vedic) :  sunrise and sunset via chariot , Ašvieniai (Baltic) pull a carriage of Saulė (Sun) through the sky. Ašvieniai, depicted as žirgeliai or little horses, are common on Lithuanian rooftops.  ...The "solar chariot" is in all the liguistic groups.  
    • "Indo-European linguistic connections between Norse SólVedic SuryaCommon Brittonic SulisLithuanian SaulėLatin Sol, and Slavic Tsar Solnitse."
      • Sun goddess (Celtic, Hellenic, Latin, Teutonic, Avestan, Vedic, Hittite).  And Moon god husband (Slavic, Teutonic, Baltic).
      • Mannus ᛗ (Teutonic) cognates to Manu (Vedic).  Tacitus wrote that Mannus was the progenitor of the Teutonic tribes—just as the Sanskrit says of "father Manu".  And Manu's twin/hermaphrodite :  Yemo, Yama (Vedic), Yima (Avestan), Ymir (Norse), Remus (Roman) (< earlier *Yemos (Old Latin)).  
  • Thunder god :  Thor/Donnar ᚦ uses axe/hammer (Teutonic) | Perun (stem means striker) uses axe (Slavic) | Perkūn-as uses axe (Baltic) | Indra 'the wielder of thunderbolts" uses axe/mace (Vedic).  —Cognates :  Fjörgynn/Thor (Norse), rain god Parjanya (Vedic), Perkūn-as (Baltic), and Perun/Perúnú (Slavic). 
  • "Prom theús originally meant ‘the one who steals’; it has an exact cognate, including the prefix, in the Vedic verb pra math- , which means ‘to steal’ and is used in the Vedic myth of the theft of fire."
  • In a recurrent motif, the Otherworld contains a gate, guarded by a dog. The Greek Cerberus and the Hindu Śárvara derive from the common root *Ḱérberos ("spotted"). In the Norse, Garmr, "a blood-stained guardian of  Hel's gate". And Celtic hellhounds. The mytheme possibly stems from an older Ancient North Eurasian belief, as evidenced by similar motifs in Native American and Siberian mythology, in which case this dog might be one of the oldest mythemes recoverable through comparative mythology.
  • Three (northern) seasons—3 holi-day feast-days : 
         1.)  Easter (when the Sun that died at Yule is reborn ;  with the "cosmic egg" in all of Europe and the "brahma-egg" in the Vedas)—an Ôstara/Easter fertility goddess :  In three traditions (Vedic, Hellenic, Baltic), the Dawn is the "daughter of heaven", *Dyḗus.  —Dawn goddess :  Uṣás (Rg-Veda Sanskrit), Ušå (Avesta), Eos (Hellenic), Aurora (Roman) is a reflection of Eos (Greek), Ēostre (Anglo-Saxon), Ôstarmânôth (High Deutsch), Aušra (Lithuanian) was still acknowledged in the sixteenth century.  
         2.)  Midsummer solstice. 
         3.)  Maruts (Vedic)/Wild Hunt/Einherjar, Yule ⊕ (Teutonic). 
  • ∴ Therefore, there was a single Proto-Indo-European religion ("faith tradition").  
    ∵ Because, one clade (Y Haplogroup) conquered and then mixed with the conquered.  —In Europe, Pontic-Steppe R1a/b men (descendants of "Eastern European Hunter-Gatherers"), Aryans ("Yamnaya DNA"), conquered Europe's original I1/I2 men (descendants of "Western European Hunter-Gatherers").  (Note :  "Geneticist David Reich said that the KITLG gene for blonde hair entered continental Europe in a massive population migration from the Eurasian [Pontic] steppe, by a people who had Ancient North Eurasian [Siberia] ancestry."  Not the Western European Hunter-Gatherers. ...Patanjali the Indian "father of yoga" wrote blonde hair was an essential attribute of a brahman.)
    • Alain de Benoist, "The Religion of Europe:  
      "[I] believe that the Christianization of Europe, the integration of Christianity in the European mental system was the most disastrous event in history that has happened up to this point — a catastrophe in the true meaning of the term.  ...  ...  In his Introduction to Metaphysics, Heidegger examines precisely the question of the 'past'. A people, he says, can only triumph over the 'darkening of the world' and decadence on condition of permanently wanting a destiny. However, it 'will only make a destiny if first it creates in itself a resonance, a possibility of resonance for this destiny, and if it understands its tradition in a creative way. All this implies that this people, as a proventual people, ex-poses itself in the original domain where being reigns, and thereby ex-posits there the provenance of the West, from the center of its pro-coming future'. It is necessary, in other words, 'to re-seek the beginning of our spiritual being as proventual, to transform it into another beginning'. And Heidegger adds: 'For a beginning to repeat itself, it is not a question of looking back to it as to something past, which now is known and which only has to be imitate, but it is necessary that the beginning be started again more originally, and that with all that a real beginning comprises of disconcerting, obscure and uncertain'. Indeed, 'the beginning is here. He is not behind us like he was a long time ago, but he is standing in front of us. The beginning broke into our future. He drives away his greatness that we must reach'.  ....  ...Paganism today is not about erecting altars to Apollo or resuscitating the cult of Odhinn. On the other hand, it implies looking for, behind religion, the 'mental tools' of which it is the product, to which interior universe it returns, what form of apprehension of the world it translates. In short, it implies considering the gods as 'centers of values' (H. R. Niebuhr), and the beliefs of which they are the object as systems: gods and beliefs pass, but values remain.   ...  ...the gods of paganism, is tolerant, because he is made up of all kinds of diversity. It even represents, one might say, the unique diversity of a being who does not have to exclude any otherness, any difference, because it encompasses and reconciles them all ["the All Other" is One is paganism is "the Perennial Philosophy".] Fundamentally, the God of paganism is non-Other. On the contrary, the God of Judeo-Christian monotheism is alterity par excellence, he is the Any Other - and it is in this status of radical otherness that he claims to give himself that his danger lies."
