Every so often, I am delighted to find that my work has become predictive in its accuracy. That the reconstructive efforts which we engage in are not merely idle conjecture of 'fitting together' elements within the confines of my mind - but the subtle perceptions of actually-extant archaic Indo-European religiosity and myth.
