In order to understand this post we need to consider the Occult Lore which tells of the movement of the Aryans from the North Polar Regions at some time in the very ancient past. Even then we need to consider if the term 'Aryan' is right or whether we should use the term Hyperboreans which is more likely. Indeed, since the shift seems to have been from a Polar Mythos (Hyperborean) to a Solar Mythos (Aryan) then the Aryans were more likely descendants of the Hyperboreans who underwent a transformation (of consciousness) after a catastrophe that sank At-al-land. So the Aryans, we could surmise (and that is all we can do since there is no proof), left At-al-land at different times after different catastrophic changes to this land in the North Sea.
According to the Hidden Tradition there was a series of catastrophes that sank the most ancient Ur-Lands and with each catastrophe waves of Folk-wanderings occurred -
Hyperborea - here the inhabitants were the Shining Ones who were a Spiritual Race which was translucent and had Blue Blood - Igneous Blood. This is the 'Fiery Blood' of the High Race of the North. Due to the mixing of the Sacred Blood these peoples became more physical in appearance after a catastrophe when the Earth's axis shifted and an Ice Age set in which caused a southwards wave of peoples from the sinking lands.
At-al-land - the former Hyperboreans settled further south in the area of the North Sea on the vast continent known as At-al-land. These peoples were different in form due to the Earth's changes but they created a new High Civilisation which lasted many thousands of years. Then, it seems, there occurred a massive catastrophe that sank areas of this land, causing some of the peoples there to move away again, though some no doubt remained on what was left and on the islands that remained above the sea. It would appear that it was here that the Aryan Race was created through changes in consciousness, and these were led out of At-al-land by the Aryan Manu and moved across into the Gobi Desert.
The Gobi - there is evidence that another High Civilisation was created in the area now known as the Gobi Desert, and this was the home of the Aryans who left At-al-land after the catastrophe. Again, it would seem that a vast catastrophe wiped away this civilisation too. We should remember here that periods of thousands of years are involved. We can assume that the homeland of the Gobi Aryans was named Shambhalla which comes down to us through Aryan Buddhism (Buddha was an Aryan of the Sakya Tribe which lived in India).
The Folk-Wanderings following the fall of the Gobi Civilisation seem to have been into an area around what is today known as India. This was not the later 'Aryan Invasion' but the civilisation built around Harappan which is now considered to be Vedic-Aryan and not an 'indigenous' form which was later overrun by Aryans. The later incursions into the area seem to have replaced an earlier Aryan Civilisation. We find in the Aryan Vedas the most profound and deep wisdom of the ancient world which was created by a very high and sophisticated science which we shall call the Aryan Science.
This Aryan Civilisation centred around the Himalayas and Tibet, as well as the area today known as Iran (Land of the Aryan). It was in the area of Tibet-India of the Himalayas that legend tells us secret caverns within the Earth were used to hold written accounts of these ancient times. We do know that this was true since during World War II the Germans made treks into the wilderness of Tibet and brought back hundreds of books, most of which have 'disappeared'.
Sometime during these Folk-Wanderings the Aryans went into Egypt, Central and South America, and Easter Island, as well as other areas that have left traces of these peoples. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Western Occultists such as Madame Blavatsky, George Gurdjieff, Aleister Crowley and many others of fame travelled to these areas - Egypt, Tibet and India - to rediscover this ancient knowledge for the Europeans. This itself indicates that the Ancient Seers were all too well aware of the coming Dark Age when this knowledge would be lost here in the West, but would be held in secret places in the East and in the Americas where it could be found again in our times.
The Mayan Stela shown on this blog on many occasions tells a story to us in itself; it appears to show the Aryan Thunder-God holding Twin-Hammers in a boat ('ark') with a White Stone in the bottom and Twin-Serpents coiling around the sides of the boat. It is the serpents that will concern us here.
Esoteric Tradition holds that the Nagas ('Serpent-Folk') were the descendants of a prehistoric race whose homeland was destroyed by a great cataclysm some 10,000 years ago. This time-span indicates a link to the sinking of At-al-land, which is what we shall assume to be the case. An ancient papyrus in the Leningrad Hermitage mentions the 'Island of the Serpents' and states -
'After you leave my island you will not find it again and this place will vanish under the sea's waves.'
This island was one known as Naga Dwipa, and these "Serpent-Folk' appear tp have been Vedic Aryans whose totem was the Hooded Serpent - the Cobra. They were Initiates and Guardians of the Ancient Esoteric Knowledge. What is interesting here is that the Naga Chief, Takshaka, was a patron of medicine and healing, and expert in poisons and antidotes to poisons. The Naga Symbol was that of a Coiled Serpent, or Coiled Serpents around a central rod, the symbol known as the Caduceus of Mercury to the Greeks. This same symbol can be found in India related to Shiva.
I am here reminded of certain links to Woden -
- Votan of South American Legend was of the Race of Chan ('Race of the Serpent') and came from Tullan or Tula (Thule). Questzalcoatl of the Aztecs was known as 'The Feathered Serpent'. Kukulkan was also associated with the Serpent.
- In a vivid dream of January 1st 1999 Woden was seated before a Hooded Serpent (Cobra) in a sandy cave, thus linking him to the Serpent-Cults.
- Woden is shown as a healer in both the Merseburg Charm and in the Old English Nine Herbs Charm; but in the latter he cures bites from the venom of the serpent.
Our own English word 'snake' could well derive from a combination of 'S' - the movement of the Serpent across the Earth - and 'Nake' which is too close to 'Naga' for comfort. The Old English word is snaca which is also close to S-Naga. In fact the letter 'N' seems, like 'S' and 'Z' to have been used as symbolic of the Serpent in ancient times. The mention of Votan, obviously 'Wotan' of Germania, is important since the word for 'serpent' - Chan - is very much like the Kan-Rune which itself means 'Fire-Serpent' or 'Fire-Dragon' at one level. The term Naga actually means 'Wise Serpent'. In fact, the term 'Naga' would in ancient times have had the vowels left out, leaving the significant ng which forms the basis of Ing-Ingui which is ng.
We should now consider the link between the 'Celtic Druids' and the Serpent, a link that we may apply to the Germano-Celts rather than the Gallo-Celts of the South. Rather than seeing these 'Wise Serpents' as a 'pre-Aryan' people dispossessed by the Aryans the truth seems to be that these were Aryans akin to the Vedic Aryans of India. We have an ancient legend given in the Prose Edda of how Woden led his people out of the area known as 'Troy' (which may have been the now famed 'Asaport' which was in Armenia [now Turkey] which has an advanced technology found by archaeologists). He led them back into Northern Europe which was their Ur-Lands. We can thus see a movement outwards, eastward and southward, and a movement back into Northern Europe led by Woden.
We can assume that remnants of the same peoples still lived in parts of Northern Europe and that the two fused together, as the Aesir and Vanir fused together in mythology (history follows Archetypal Myth). Thus, there is no need for an 'invasion theory' (*) which seems to be the case with modern establishment scholars when they cannot explain something which they do not understand. It is the Ancient Wisdom held by these Serpent-Folk that we find hidden in the secrets held by the Druids who, as we have shown again and again, were not all 'Celtic' but were Germanic (like the Tegeingl). We can also assume that the Serpent Wisdom was transmitted by these Heathen Folk to the new religious Faith of Krist.
(*) These 'invasion theories' invariably see the incoming incursions to be the 'Aryans' who destroy an already-existing 'high civilisation'. Here Archetypal Myth tells a far different tale, since these 'high civilisations' were the dying remnants of a once 'High Civilisation' that was in decline and degeneracy, and which was invaded by Barbarians who then founded a new 'High Civilisation' from the ruins and remains of the old one. Both the dying and recreated civilisations were Aryan as in India.
The Nagas were clearly Aryan Initiates ('Twice-Born') and the Serpent is symbolic of the Energising Creative Force of the Cosmos. Clearly, the Nagas were a highly advanced people ('Caucasian' in appearance) who were descendants of the Folk of At-al-land, and who possessed an abundance of this Creative Force or Creative Energy and were thus 'creators'. Having said that, we can relate this to Woden-Rudra/Shiva as a Force of Destruction-to Re-creation, and also to the Vedic Agni who we know as Ingui.
The Ing-Rune forms part of the Caduceus of Mercury or Staff of Hermes which in India was known as a Naga-Coil and was made up of two 3 1/2 coiled serpents facing each other - the Kundalini-Serpent or Fire-Serpent. This is the force that moves up and down the Spinal Column in man, symbolised by the 'squirrel' Ratatosk in Norse Lore. Interestingly, the word rata used in 'Ratatosk' and also 'Rati' in that of the Myth of Knit Mountain, is akin to rasa in Sanskrit which means 'vital essence' or 'elexir' and rasayana means 'Elexir of Life'. This all relates to the Serpent-Force which was the power of the Naga Aryans.
The Pine-Cone at the top of the winged staff (Irminsul) represents the Pineal Gland. Latest scientific experiments point to the Pineal Gland secreting a powerful drug called DMT which is an 'hallucinogen', but which in reality causes altered states of consciousness whence the mind can travel into different worlds of being. What was once secreted naturally was later found in certain plant-forms which were 'given by the gods' in order to produce these effects which materialistic science shuns as creating 'hallucinations'. (**) The top of this shows a Sun-Orb symbolic of the Solar-Wisdom of the Nagas.
(**) The word 'hallucination' is said to mean 'delusion', 'error' or 'perception of things that do not exist' and yet, in earlier works the same word means 'a wandering of the mind' a far different meaning to the later (deliberately distorted) version.
The Jewel in the Cobra's Head is the Pineal Gland or 'Third Eye' and this is known to contain crystals; the crystal gives us the colours and essence of the rainbow. The link between Midgard (Pineal Gland-Third Eye) and the Gods is thus the Rainbow-Bridge. The rainbow was known as 'Indra's Bow' in early times. The 'Pot of Gold' at the 'end of the rainbow' is thus the Solar Wisdom of the Ancients or 'enlightenment'. A 'pot' could be seen as a 'cauldron', and in this case Odroerir.
The Fylfot-Swastika is this all-pervasive Life-Energy in motion; this is the Serpent-Force in motion. The word 'Aryan' stems from -
Ar - 'movement', or 'motion' and
Yan - 'to generate'.
Thus, the Aryan is the 'Generator of Motion' who has an abundance of this Life-Energy or Cosmic-Energy which is the Creative Energy of Pure Consciousness and thus the highest state of consciousness. This is a formative and organising Force of Order, the opposite of entropy which is disorganising and disintegrating. Here we see the Force of Light and Order against the Force of Darkness and Chaos. This is why the Arya exists as the polar-opposite force to the Joten who are the Forces of Darkness and Chaos - Force of Entropy. The Sun is the Sacred Symbol of the Arya, and the Aryan Nagas were the Ancient Solar-Race mentioned in the Ramayana.
Agni is the link between the Gods and Man; in a sense he is a 'messenger' between the Gods and Man. Since Ingui is akin to Agni, and he has the Ing-Rune as his symbol, then Ingui is linked to the DNA Spiral or 'Double-Helix'. Some modern research has concluded that the DNA is like an antenna that receives information from the Cosmic Energy-Field (Shakti). Agni is the God of the Need-Fire who kindles the Need-Fire or Friction-Fire, and thus associated with the Swastika which is the 'motion' of this Creative Force. In this we come near to the idea of Mundilfore (Father of Hama-Ingui-Agni) or Waendal who whirls the Cosmos into being through turning the 'Fire-Twirl' (Cweorth-Rune).
We can find parallels here with the 'Churning of the Ocean' which is similar to the 'Fire-Twirl' which moves forwards and backwards - symbolic of the Twin-Forces of attraction-repulsion needed to create. Through these simple images we thus see no need for a 'Big-Bang' at the beginning which is the dogma of modern science. We see the same in Norse Mythology when Ice meets Fire (attraction-repulsion), driven by the 'wind' or 'movement of air' needed to break the stasis, and from this forms the nebulae which are the Centres of Creation in the Cosmos.
Materialistic science has to have a 'Big-Bang' to explain the outward-movement, but Aryan Science recognises not one but infinite 'worlds' or 'dimensions of being', and that there is a movement of energy between these worlds. This movement of energy seems to be linked to the symbol of the Spiral, which seems to move this energy from one level/dimension to another.
The spiral in all of its varied forms seems to symbolise this movement of energy between the worlds of being. We could see the above (almost always related to 'The Goddess' as usual) as the Hindu Trimurti of Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, or the Vedic Trimurti of Surya-Vayu-Agni. Agni, as can be seen here, is clearly related to the original Shiva in the form of Rudra which is why, in the Vedas, Agni and Rudra are sometimes interchanged or seen as two forms of the same. This itself is interesting in view of my previous ideas on Woden-Ingui. There are also fundamental reasons for this pairing since Woden represents the Warrior-God and Ingui the Fertility God. Many scholars seem to differentiate between these two concepts, break them apart, and yet the ancients seem to have linked the two firmly together, as seen in the Wild Hunt where the Warrior-Gods leads the Wild Army, but which is also related to the fertility of the crops and the tribe too. War and the breeding of offspring go together and are inseparable.
The Serpent represents three levels -
The energising Creative Force of the Cosmos or Supreme Universal Spirit, the Hindus seeing this as Shakti - the Female Force.
At the human level this represents consciousness reaching towards wisdom and enlightenment.
At the physical and lower level this is symbolic of fertility and thus regeneration.
Why does Woden seek knowledge, and thus wisdom, and thus understanding? Because he eats of the 'Tree of Knowledge' thus gaining the knowledge of 'Good and Evil' (knowledge of opposites) which allows him to give Nature a 'helping hand' and thus shortcutting the Evolution of Man. Whereas our evolving would come about naturally, Woden is the God who shortcuts this process by giving Nature a 'shove' and thus short-cutting our evolutionary process. This is why he is a most important God, and why we name ourselves after this God.
It is not necessary for a physical change in man to come about through physical mutation itself; the process seems to entail a change in the state of consciousness which has to be won through struggle. This is the Naga-Wisdom which we have inherited through our DNA Code, passing back through At-al-land to Hyperborea in an unbroken continuum. In a different 'world' or 'dimension' there exist different laws, or no laws at all, and within another realm lay the Archetypal Images of which there is an Aryan Archetype. It has been found by scientists that the electrical field around a plant-seed is not in fact shaped as the seed, but as the adult plant. This is a serious find since it infers that the 'seed' is thus the physical shape but there is also an Archetypal Image the shape of the plant as it is meant to be, and thus this Archetypal Image exists not in the physical but in an Archetypal World as the 'Formative Force' or the energy that forces growth in the plant. This also seems proven when we find that the 'aura' of a person who has lost, say, a limb, shows up with the limb intact. Thus, the 'aura' is no more than this Archetypal Image that exists in what we could term the Astral World.
Now we can see why this Ancient Serpent-Wisdom has been kept through the ages, and is today surfacing once more here in Europe. What Don Miguel Serrano stated was right in that the creation of the Sun-Man has to be done by the creation of the 'Son of Man', of giving birth to a 'child', but in the secret sense of creating the Astral Body (or recreating it) which is the creation of the Archetypal Image in a different world, the creation of the Aryan Archetype which will thus be 'transmitted' to the DNA in Man, thus creating the 'New Man'. The 'Son of Man' is Ingui and this process is linked to 'Fire' and the 'Creative Fire', and thus to the 'Fire-Serpent'. This is why the change is not a 'mutation' as such, but a 'transformation' through a change in the state of consciousness, and Woden is the God of Wisdom - the Serpent-God - who 'shortcuts' the evolutionary process for us through his teachings and his guidance. Woden guides us in this evolutionary jump towards the Sonnenmensch.
It is my feeling that the Hagal-Rune or 'Seed of Life' is the Key to this Mystery, since the 'Seed of Life' is a blueprint for the 'Tree of Life' and both are associated with the 'Krist-All' (Crystal). This particular rune has poems within which are the 'corn' (seed) and the 'serpent' (sickness of snakes), as well as being the Ice-Crystal or Snowflake Form which forms the basis of life-patterns. The Ur-Rune is also related to these ideas as the 'Ur-Form' or 'Archetypal Pattern' which forms the finished product. These need not concern us here but they do form part of the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag and will be dealt with in a post on that site at a later time.
The word Wyrd is not just related to 'fate' or to 'destiny' since the term means 'to become'; this is the State of Becoming which forms the basis of the transformation from Man to Superman. Again, we see this not as some physical transformation through an 'act of Nature' but as a willed transformation based upon the worth of the individual who strives to overcome, who strives to go beyond the human to the super-human. Wyrd not only means 'to become' but means 'worth' - this evolutionary jump is related to struggle and to the individual overcoming. It is also a fact that Wyrd stems from the Aryan Root *war/*wal which originally meant 'to coil', 'to wind', 'to twist' and is thus related to the Coiled Serpent and the Spiral, which, as I said, seems to be the shape needed to move energy from one world into another - this energy is needed to create the Superman. (***)
(***) A copper wire which is wound into a spiral form gains properties that it did not have before, and this means that it is transformed in some subtle way.
The 'aura' which I have mentioned which seems to exist in the Astral World is thus the Cosmic Creative Force which creates matter, energy and life. The Aryan Archetype exists in this world and is 'built' in this world as the 'Son of Man'; this is the formative-force that impinges upon the physical world to create the change from Man to Superman.
Note 1 - In relation to the 'Blood-Memory' which forms such an important part of the work of Miguel Serrano some fore-thinking scientists have discovered that water has the ability to hold 'memory'. Since the blood is the 'waters of the body' this may well prove this to be true (though we need no proof ourselves). It would seem that water-vapour in the air stores memory through electrical impulses given off by human emotions.
Note 2 - The labyrinth or spiral form has been used, it would seem, for certain rituals, and thus we see why the 'spiral' has the ability to move energy (and thus 'communication') between the worlds. These would form the basis for communication with other worlds, and for raising energy from other worlds.
Note 3 - Surya - Sun - Creation
Vayu - Air - Preservation
Agni - Fire - Destruction (-to-recreation).
It should be noted here how Guido von List was far nearer to the mark than many of the texts/scholars who see the process as Creation-Preservation-Destruction, since he added the fourth element of 're-Creation' or as he put it - Arising - Being - Passing away to New Arising. This is the process of Birth-Life-Death-Rebirth which is a threefold process extended to the fourfold process. The process as Creation-Preservation-Destruction is far nearer to the idea of an ending rather than the truth of a 'new beginning'. This is an important point we must never overlook.
Note 4 -
The Gift of Ing - The Serpent-Force
The process of the Formative Force can be found within the Gar-Rune, for when it is extended in any direction it still creates a never-ending X-Ing pattern that retains the same meaning - 'Gift of Ing'. The 'Diamond-Body' can be found in the Germanic Ing-Rune. According to the Holy White Stone of Ing this 'gift' is not only 'Fire' (Ken-Rune) but also the 'Serpent' (Kan-Rune). The stone also shows the Pattern of DNA and all this is connected to the Aryan Archetype and the Aryan Gene. The DNA is a spiral-form and can thus draw energy from this Archetypal Realm. The creation of the 'Son of Man' or 'Astral Body' is done in the 'Astral Realm' and the transformation is 'communicated' to the DNA which creates the change in vibration altering Man into Superman. An alternative form of the Gar-Rune shows the ends of the X as bent, forming two 'S' shapes across the Germanic Ing-Rune - Twin Serpents!
The Holy White Stone of Ing
The shape of the markings around the runic inscription are that of the Ing-Rune where the centre is rounded, although in this case it is squared (no doubt for ease of carving). This is made up of an two Edel-Runes fused as one, and denotes a link to the Divine Twins who are themselves associated with New Creation and to the Kindling of the Need-Fire.
