On The Alcis Twins – The Heroic Horse-Twins Of Another Name

Our field is one wherein so often, we find fundamental contiguity of Essence - obscurated via the seeming diversity of transposed expression. So it is with the Alcis pairing. These are described in Tacitus as being akin to the Classical Castor & Pollux - the Helping Hero (Horse) twins known also variously as the Asvins … Continue reading On The Alcis Twins – The Heroic Horse-Twins Of Another Name

Sons Of The Sky Father – A Typological Preliminary [ Arya Akasha Arka ]

In the Heavens as it is upon Earth, Family is at the heart of everything. And, given the centrality of the Divine Family to the Indo-European mythology - an Arka ['essence', 'distillation'] post of this nature seemed a decent way to demonstrate the coterminities of a number of the salient figures involved. Now I stress … Continue reading Sons Of The Sky Father – A Typological Preliminary [ Arya Akasha Arka ]

The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part Two: Surya, Saranyu And Chhaya – The Shadowy ‘Second’ Wife Of The Sky Father]

[Author's Note: This piece continues our look at a fundamentally coterminous myth of the Indo-Europeans found reasonably intact in both the Greek and the Hindu canons - wherein the Sky Father engages with a 'Darkened' form of His Consort, often in symbolically resonant animal shape. Part One examined the situation of Poseidon in pursuit of … Continue reading The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part Two: Surya, Saranyu And Chhaya – The Shadowy ‘Second’ Wife Of The Sky Father]

The Place Of Worship – The Temple – The Home And Healing Whole Of The Community

Something I love about the Indo-European etymology - is that manner in which the roots of terms resonate with their descendants. And, in so doing, significantly broaden our understanding of just what they actually are - how we are to relate to them. A good example of this is the Ancient Greek ναός - 'Naos' … Continue reading The Place Of Worship – The Temple – The Home And Healing Whole Of The Community

The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part One – Demeter Erinyes, Poseidon]

Something that I have often found intriguing about the Indo-European mythology - is the manner in which various peoples have preserved differing perspectives upon what are quite clearly the same events, same beings, same myths ... yet which are recorded from different vantage points, and with corresponding questions about how they should 'fit back together'. … Continue reading The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part One – Demeter Erinyes, Poseidon]

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]

Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins

The Indo-European Myth of the Progenitor Twins is quite literally foundational for who we are and how we relate to the people, the world around us. It is therefore unsurprising that even despite occasional alterations, it has remained so recognizably pervasive amidst the descendant Indo-European peoples. In our recent "Sons of the Sun" series, we … Continue reading Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins

Sons of the Sun Part V: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: Forensic Theology [Section 3]

So, to bring it all back together - and hopefully rather simply - the Myth of Romulus & Remus provides something quite fascinating to us. For it is an account that has obviously transposed something far older, and in some ways far grander [that is to say, the origin of the Race of Man - … Continue reading Sons of the Sun Part V: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: Forensic Theology [Section 3]

Sons of the Sun Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: The Remurian Empire of the Underworld – Rome’s Dark Reflection [Section 2]

Yet if I am right … where is the Underworld association for Remus? Answer? Right there in the Romans' own knowledge of their ancestral religion.  Lemuria, to be precise. The occurrence each year wherein the Lemures - the Shades of the Dead - come back to the mortal city. Ovid identifies "Lemuria" as having etymological … Continue reading Sons of the Sun Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: The Remurian Empire of the Underworld – Rome’s Dark Reflection [Section 2]

Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed – The Sepulchral Legacy Of The Shadow-King [Section 1]

However, lest I be accused of singling the Zoroastrians out unfairly for their religious deviancy - it is important to note that such practices of 'editing' and 'updating' a foundational myth so that it might better accommodate who its people had become in the days since, was actually a recurrent feature of the Indo-European world. … Continue reading Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed – The Sepulchral Legacy Of The Shadow-King [Section 1]
