On the Razor’s Edge

The further back in time we go, the better we were mentally, physically and spiritually. The illusion according to which we would be better today thanks to our advanced technologies is just this, an illusion. Yes, the technology we have today is more efficient, complex and demanding than in the past, but the point here is that we have developed our modern technology not because we are better than our “savage, brutal, dirty and ape-like ancestors” (this is what the ordinary people think of their ancestors), but because we are dramatically degenerated, under every point of view.

We need all the advanced technologies that we have developed, to be able to compensate our weaknesses, disabilities and our inability to survive and thrive in our natural environment, in Europe, as we instead should and as we have always done when we were hunter-gatherers. Imagine the system of the pulley: we have a desperate need of the applied force (the advanced technology) to raise the resisting force (ourselves, our chances to survive). Without an applied force of some kind we had, at a certain point of our history, zero possibilities to survive. With the passage of time we necessitated of an applied force increasingly stronger, to compensate at our increasingly heavier resisting force, our increasingly severe disabilities and our lost autonomy and independence. We are almost at the point where the resisting force has become simply too heavy and, soon or later but surely, the applied force will no more be able to support its weight; the applied force will cede and the resisting force will fall, up to crash hard on the ground (i.e. the vast majority of humanity will die, completely incapable to survive without the support of the applied force that permitted its survival until that moment). At this point the pulley will be broken and the best of us will flee its yoke becoming progressively totally independent, autonomous, masters of themselves and again in harmony with nature, in their beloved Europe.

If we want to be among those survivors we must learn to live a simpler life and prepare ourselves for what, inevitably, awaits us.

We started to need an “applied force” in consequence to the hybridization between Neanderthal and Sapiens and its spread, that led to the abandonment of the way of life of the hunter-gatherers and to the birth of agriculture and civilization, the only system that could give us more chances of survival. The finger must be pointed against the self-domestication of man: exactly as domesticated animals, man became meekest and unable to live in the wild. The modern man is unconscious of his loss of autonomy, already domesticated he continues blindly towards an increasingly severe and irreversible form of self-enslavement. The happiness of the domesticated man consists in serving as a tool in the mechanism of civilization: the liberation from this yoke, whether he is aware of it or not, is the last thing he wishes!

Words of Wisdom #21

“Great son of Tydeus, why you ask me who I am? The generations of men are like leaves: the wind makes them fall but others will sprout on the flowering trees when spring comes. So the ancestries of men, one is born, the other vanishes”.

-Glaucus to Diomedes in the Iliad

The crown of the tree represents the future, our future lives, when we’ll be reborn in the bodies of our descendants. The trunk of the tree represents the present, the life that we are currently living. The roots of the tree represent the past, our past lives, when we died in the bodies of our ancestors. This is the European vision of life!

Different Minds, different Skies

“When men see these spectacles, they believe that certainly the gods exist and that these great wonders are the work of the gods”.

During antiquity and prehistory we had exactly the same astronomical knowledge that we possess today, but when the Judeo-Christians invaded us – killing our ancestors by the millions and destroying or giving to the flames every manifestation of our culture on which they laid their eyes – they forced on our minds the “fact” that our planet would actually be flat, at the center of the Sky and that if we had reached its limits we would have ended up falling into the abyss. Those who opposed, like Galileo Galilei that affirmed the Heliocentric System, were labeled as heretics and forced to publicly reject their knowledge if they didn’t want to be sended to the stake: this when they were not preventively silenced by means of threats and tortures. Anyhow the Renaissance came and we returned, for the desperation of the Judeo-Christians, to our ancient science: if it was for them we should still believe in the lies they promoted, today and in the future as well, until the coming of their fictional Armageddon.

At that point they tried to hammer in the heads of the Europeans the fact that also our ancestors thinked that the Earth was flat: “even the pagans believed to this, it was not a consequence of the wave of destruction and ignorance we brought in Europe! Oy vey!”. Then they started their distortion, corruption and willed misinterpretation of our mythologies, and today the Europeans generally think that our ancestors were indeed ignorant in this regard, and this would be proved by the fact that our mythologies tell all sort of things about the planet where we live but none of them comes close to the truth.

***

In this context one of the most exploited and abused figures is the one of Oceanus, a deity of the Greek mythology that according to the Judeo-Christians would have symbolized the waters that surrounded our flat planet, delimiting the borders beyond which we would have fallen into cosmic space: that’s what they think.

How the Judeo-Christians see the Earth and Oceanus:
terra-piatta

Now it’s time to look at the figure of Oceanus, called Ægir (“[metaphysical] scare”, “awe”) in the Norse mythology, in a European perspective:

According to the Egyptian mythology everything came into being from Nun (defined “the watery abyss of the sky” and “the father of the gods”), the primeval ocean, primordial matrix whose creative power gave rise to all existing forms of life, eternal and infinite space that represented what we today call “Universe”: the archaic thinking associated the concept of water to that of source of life and essence of purification and regeneration, with particular reference to the amniotic fluid, indeed, at the same time, the Nun is described as a river that flows through the realm of the dead, whom, after diving into it, are resurrected.

I quote some significant passages of an Egyptian sacred text:

“Here I am,
I that, swelling and overflowing the Abysses,
I generated, from them, the Waters of the Sky…
These waters, made me float on their liquid Spaces…
And that is why they remain in my power,
The Waters of the Sky!”.

-The Egyptian Book of the Dead

“Since this Earth has appeared
At the Dawn of Times, in the Ocean of the Sky,
Rising from the Primordial Chaos…”.

-The Egyptian Book of the Dead

“I lean on the forehead of Ra
And I sail on the heavenly Ocean
Seated in peace, on the prow of his ship…”.

-The Egyptian Book of the Dead

“Look! He is alone in the middle of the heavenly Ocean
While he crosses the Horizon!”.

-The Egyptian Book of the Dead

Oceanus, the only one that could stand apart when Zeus demanded the presence of the gods in Olympus, was described as “tireless”, “deep”, “fluent”, “refluent on itself”, “with no waves”, “origin of everything”, “origin of the gods”: it is the infinite space that encircles the Solar System, i.e. the Universe; it is tireless, fluent and refluent (term that suggests a rotation) on itself because even the fixed stars were moving at the eyes of our ancestors, apparently and very slowly because of the precession of the equinoxes, a motion of our planet that they knew perfectly; it is deep because the Universe is spatially infinite; it is without waves because it has nothing to do with water as we understand it and because the apparent motion of the fixed stars is inexorable but almost imperceptible; it is the origin of everything because the Universe at the same time is and contains all that exists, has given rise to all that has been, that is and that will be; it is the origin of the gods because without the Universe the Solar System would not exist, here “gods” referring to the “inhabitants” of the Solar System, i.e. those planets that since their first identification were called with the names of the deities; it is the only one not forced to go to Olympus, i.e. the Sun, at the call of Zeus because only the planets of the Solar System are “forced” to head towards the Sun, being inexorably attracted by its gravitational force.

<<But>>, say the Judeo-Christians, <<it encircles the Earth>>!

The “earth” of the myths is sometimes described as a plane, yes, but it is not our planet, it is instead the ideal plane passing through the four pillars or corners of the year, marked by the equinoxes and solstices, i.e. the ecliptic, and precisely this is the meaning concealed by the mythologies that describe a flat and/or quadrangular “earth”: the four pillars or corners that determine it are the four zodiacal constellations that appear behind the Sun in the days of the equinoxes and solstices.

Note: the combined attraction force of the Sun and Moon, in relation to the fact that the Earth doesn’t have a perfectly spherical shape, has as consequence the phenomenon of the precession of the equinoxes, consisting in the spatial movement of the Earth’s axis with respect to a reference point in the fixed stars. This motion of our planet is very similar to the movement made by the axis of a top that is about to stop: because of the action of an external force and the motion caused by it the rotation axis rotates around another imaginary axis, tracing two symmetrical cones in the space. The duration of a precessional cycle, equivalent to the time that the Earth’s axis takes to accomplish a complete rotation, is of about 25.776 years: the most relevant consequences of this planetary motion are the movement of the celestial pole – with the consequent change of the pole star that indicates it – and of the points of the Earth’s orbit along the ecliptic – hence with respect to the fixed stars – in which occur the equinoxes and solstices (because of the precession the tropical year – the time taken by the Sun to return on the same equinoctial or solstitial point – turns out each year shorther than the sidereal year – the time taken by the Sun to return on the same position with respect to the fixed stars – of about 50.26″ clockwise, in the opposite direction to the counterclockwise one followed by the Sun in its apparent annual path, i.e. towards the spatial position where the previous constellation of the zodiac is located: over the millennia all the zodiacal signs slowly, relentlessly and cyclically followed each other behind the rising Sun in the days of the equinoxes and solstices), determining each year a small temporal advance in the succession of the seasons. In leap years one more day is intercalated precisely in relation to the phenomenon of the precession, so as to keep aligned the astronomical moments of the equinoxes and solstices with the calendar dates of reference. To pass entirely through any of the twelve zodiacal constellations, each of which occupies 30° along the ecliptic, the Sun takes about 2.148 years, therefore all twelve constellations, equivalent to the 360° of the ecliptic, are travelled in the course of the about 25.776 years that make up a complete precessional cycle. The ecliptic and the zodiac are inclined of 23.5° with respect to the equator (the myths that describe the sudden separation of the earth from the sky, simultaneously to the conclusion of the golden age, may refer to the separation of the ecliptic from the equator consequently to the inclination [the etymology of the Greek word “klima” means “inclination”] of the Earth’s axis: from the eternal and atemporal spring of the beginnings we were condemned to the yoke of the cyclical and temporal succession of the seasons): the half north of the equator – containing six zodiacal constellations and extending spatially from the vernal equinox to the autumnal equinox passing through the summer solstice – was archaically conceived as “emerged earth” whereas the half south of the equator – containing the other six zodiacal constellations and extending spatially from the autumnal equinox to the vernal equinox passing through the winter solstice – was conceived as “submerged earth”; the new constellation that rose behind the Sun in the day of the vernal equinox “emerged from the waters” whereas on the opposite side the constellation that ceased to mark the autumnal equinox sank under the equator and was “submerged” (only the equinoctial points acted as a symbolic reference since they result from the intersection of the ecliptic with the equator). After about 12.900 years from the beginning of a precessional cycle the position of the equinoxes and solstices reverses because of the diametrically opposite inclination attained by the Earth’s axis, with the result that the northern and southern hemispheres swap places in relation to the cyclical succession of the seasons.

Now, the Universe encircles the ecliptic, encircles the Solar System, right?

Note: the prehistoric engravings with the form of a spiral may also depict a celestial maelstrom, the cosmic mill or vortex (in the Norse mythology the etymology of Iðavöllr may mean “plain of splendour” or also “swirling field”) that dictates the rhythms of the celestial clock? The maelstrom (the first part of the name is connected to the verb “mala”, etymologically “to grind”, perhaps in reference to the “grinding” of the eras as a consequence of the inexorable current of time and cosmic cycles) is known as the “navel of the sea”, and from a cosmic point of view “navel” would be a reference to the axial and gravitational center and “sea” a reference to the waters of the cosmic ocean which dance vortically around the aforesaid center, respectively the Pole Star and the Sun in reference to the circumpolar constellations and the planets of the Solar System.

Moreover, in the Iliad the shield that Hephaestus builds for Achilles is described in these terms:

“…the Pleiades, the Hyades and the strength of Orion
and the Great Bear, that they call with the name of Wagon:
she turns on itself and watches Orion,

and only her has no part in the washings of Oceanus”.

In the Odyssey, Odysseus pays attention to the stars that Calypso advises him to follow:

“…staring at the Pleiades, staring at Boötes that sets late,
and at the Great Bear, that they call also with the name of Wagon,
and always she turns and fearful watches Orion,
and only her has no part in the washings of Oceanus”.

Ursa Major is composed by the seven shiny stars that give shape to its constellation and is a circumpolar constellation, thus always present above the horizon, that never sets in the course of the apparent motion of rotation of the Sky: it is thus visible during all the year in the Northern Hemisphere and never sets north of the 41° North, latitude of Madrid and Naples.

The fact that Ursa Major doesn’t participate in the washings of Oceanus is enough to understand that Oceanus is up high, is the Universe, “the watery abyss of the sky”!

Running towards Death

As it’s well known Mercury, or Hermes if you prefer, is the deity with the main functions of psychopompos and messenger of the gods.

Odin, his Norse equivalent, is not a messenger but a wayfarer, however these two features were originally equivalent as they referred to the same concept: movement. The word “psychopompos” is composed by “psyché” (“soul”, “breath”) and “pompós” (“he who sends”). Therefore Mercury is the deity responsible to guide the souls of the dead to their realm (the grave understood as burial mound), and from there back to life.

The question is, why him? Why Mercury/Hermes/Odin is appointed with these tasks?

Let’s give a look to the planet Mercury: it performs a motion of revolution around the Sun in approximately only 87,9 terrestrial days. It is the faster planet of the Solar System and its orbital period is by far the shortest: this explains the function of messenger and wayfarer.

Being the faster of the planets it is also the first to complete the cycle of life-death-rebirth (the motion of revolution: “revolution” means “return to the point of origin”, i.e. to birth, Mercury completes a circular motion and returns to the starting point, it lives, dies and is reborn perennially), it is thus the one who has given the example to all the other “inhabitants” of the Solar System, it has been the guide that showed and suggested the path to take, the first to have returned to the point of origin and be reborn.

The role of psychopompos rightly belongs to him, as well as that of messenger of the gods!

The swamp pheasant pecks every ten steps. Every hundred steps drinks, but refuses every food if put in cage. So it doesn’t envy the happiness of a King“.

-Zhuangzi

Once that Zhuangzi was fishing in the river Pu, the King of Chu sended two of his dignitaries to make him these proffers: <<our prince>> they said <<would like to entrust you his territory>>. Without raising his fishing rod, without even turning the head, Zhuangzi said to them: <<I’ve heard that in Chu there is a sacred turtle, dead from three thousand years. Your King preserves the shell in a basket, wrapped in a towel, at the top of the temple of his ancestors. Tell me, this turtle would not have preferred to live dragging its tail in the mud?>>. <<It would have preferred to live dragging its tail in the mud>> said the two dignitaries. <<Go away, then!>> said Zhuangzi <<I also prefer to drag my tail in the mud>>“.

-Zhuangzi

A certain prince invited Zhuangzi to become his minister. The philosopher answered to the messenger: <<Have you seen the ox destined to the sacrifice? It is covered by an embroidered caparison, and receives a ration of grass and beans. But one day it is bringed to the great temple to be killed. Then it would prefer to be a solitary calf, but by now how could it be?“.

-Zhuangzi

We are domesticated human beings, and we will remain such for at least quite some time. However, there are some things we can and should do meanwhile: do everything we can to avoid being domesticated until the point of no return (as the vast majority of modern people), do our best to remain free, independent, master of ourselves and healthy mentally, physically and spiritually. We have limits, based on our qualities, virtues and on our destiny – and we have enemies that are doing all they can to enchain and exterminate us – but despite everything this is what we should strive for!

Last of a Kind

“When I will not be able to stand alone, it will be time to die”.

The introvert human being is absorbed by the subject: himself, his thoughts, his inner world and generally speaking by everything that is natural and cyclical; the introvert gives a preponderant role to subjective factors, he does things in his own way, ignoring or despising the conformism of other people, devaluating the external reality, specifically civilization and its creations, the opinions of other people, conformism, materialism and superficiality, he feels a sort of unappeasable longing, a condition to which he has no more access, a void that he must seek to compensate.

The extrovert human being is absorbed by the object: the people and things around him, the outher world and generally speaking by everything that has to do with civilization in its various forms and creations, namely everything that is artificial and linear. The extrovert attitude has a spontaneous relation with all this, adapts well and easily to the circumstances and bends to conformism with unconscious satisfaction. This type of man very often doesn’t have critical, original and really autonomous thoughts, feels no attraction towards nature and spirituality from a superior and transcendent point of view, and is totally absorbed by the finite manifestations of reality.

What I want to suggest here is that introversion is a trait that we have inherited from the Neanderthal, the Proto-European, while extroversion is a trait that appeared only and exclusively as a consequence of the hybridization between the Neanderthal and the Homo Sapiens, the Proto-African.

Civilization is an outcome of extroversion, an extrovert entity indissolubly related to the features of the domesticated and hybridized man: the extrovert human being fits perfectly well inside its mechanisms and is strongly domesticated, to the point of not realizing it.

On the other hand introversion is a feature that the best of us have inherited from our purely Neanderthal ancestors, a feature related with autism: introverts often think for images, don’t care about the opinion of others, cannot bear noises, are deeply interested, almost obsessed, in specific subjects, fail to comply, love to stand on their own, to think and be surrounded by nature: all features found within the autistic spectrum.

Note: I’m not referring to any type of autism associated with mental retardation but only to high-functioning autism, called Asperger Syndrome, an exclusively European feature.

Before the last Ice Age reached its maximum, it is estimated that the European population counted between 4.500 and 6.000 inhabitants, while at the end of it the density of the population varied between 0,04 and 0,1 persons for square kilometer, in relation to the ground and the climate. So it makes sense to think that introversion is a trait that we inherited from the Neanderthal man as he was during the Stone Age: he was not very social, and he only occasionally encountered other people. It’s only a matter of time and we will return to be like this, that we like it or not, the Ice Ages are the norm in Europe whereas hot periods are exceptions.

“Every human being is composed of two parts. Only one is the essential. The other is the superficial, artificial and obtained part that is formed in social life and that creates the <<person>> of the individual: person, here, in the original meaning of the word, that, as is known, means mask, the mask of the actor (in opposition to the <<face>>, that instead we can correspond with the other part, the essential one). According to the individuals, but also according to the type of civilization, the one or the other part can be more developed. The degenerative limit corresponds with a quite exclusive development of the superficial and constructed part, of the <<mask>>.”

Introverts, you are the last of a kind, free in mind and spirit, the last hope for Europe and the European species: remember that our ancestors were originally as you are!
