On Indo-European Divine Inspiration – And The Zoroastrian Persecutory Suppression Of Same

Frequently when the subject of the Zoroastrian inversion of Indo-European religious belief is brought up, people presume that it is 'just' some form of linguistic confusion - a 'reversal of polarity' afflicting only an incredibly limited array of things. 'Deva' ['Deus', '-Tyr', etc. - 'God', 'Shining One'] becoming 'Daeva' ['Demon'], for example; and if they … Continue reading On Indo-European Divine Inspiration – And The Zoroastrian Persecutory Suppression Of Same

On The ‘Culture-Jamming’ Suppression Of Heritage Through Spurious Association-Allegations And Other Subversive Intents

Over the years, I have made an observational study of "culture-jamming". It's a remarkably effective strategy - whereby, if you are seeking to destroy something … a concept, a culture, a way of viewing the world … you don't just go around directly suppressing things. After all - the Streisand Effect being a thing, this … Continue reading On The ‘Culture-Jamming’ Suppression Of Heritage Through Spurious Association-Allegations And Other Subversive Intents

ON THE INDO-EUROPEAN TYPOLOGY OF IOLAUS – THIRD DRAGONSLAYER  Part Three – Academics And Anaryas : The Wrongful Reconstruction Of The Myth

Amongst the Zoroastrians, the dragon-slayer is known as Fereydun, or more archaically as Thraetaona. Who is, curiously, the son of the Zoroastrian figure of Tritas / Thrita. Now, for the Zoroastrians, there is no Indra - except in their lists of demons. As is well known, when they began their heresy against the previously prevalent … Continue reading ON THE INDO-EUROPEAN TYPOLOGY OF IOLAUS – THIRD DRAGONSLAYER  Part Three – Academics And Anaryas : The Wrongful Reconstruction Of The Myth

The Transcendent Indo-European Typology Of The God Of Masks – The Sky Father Dances On [ On The Indo-European ‘Interpretatio’ Of Dionysus Part Dieux ]

In my previous piece upon the subject, I asserted that Dionysus is a facing of the Indo-European Sky Father; and sought to illustrate this via the illumination of a range of connections of Dionysus to a range of figures from the broad Indo-European mythology - both Greek and of further afield. This article shall go … Continue reading The Transcendent Indo-European Typology Of The God Of Masks – The Sky Father Dances On [ On The Indo-European ‘Interpretatio’ Of Dionysus Part Dieux ]

“I Bend the Bow for Rudra that His Arrow May Strike and Slay the Hater of Devotion” – On Ugra Manyu And Perhaps Angra Mainyu

[Author's Note: This continues our excerpts series from #MahaShivRatri And The Mytholinguistics Of War - The Mind, The Mania, The Manyu. In this extract, we take a look at what's probably one of the least surprising potential Zoroastrian literal-demonizations of a Vedic Deity - the War God charged with the protection of piety against 'the … Continue reading “I Bend the Bow for Rudra that His Arrow May Strike and Slay the Hater of Devotion” – On Ugra Manyu And Perhaps Angra Mainyu

ON THE HORSE TWINS – The Savior Sons of the Sky Father [Part 2 – Hengist And Horsa – The Demonization of the Divine Sons]

The 'Horse' nomenclature is particularly overt when we turn to Hengist & Horsa - the latter being so clear as to not require translation, whilst the former effectively means 'Stallion'. So, 'Stallion' and 'Horse', then. At least in the British chronicles upon the subject. Other accounts from further into the Germanosphere differ somewhat upon this … Continue reading ON THE HORSE TWINS – The Savior Sons of the Sky Father [Part 2 – Hengist And Horsa – The Demonization of the Divine Sons]
