The Solar Origins of the Aryan Race

There are many different ways to explore the origins of the Aryan peoples.
We can choose to do so using empirical science and the disciplines of archaeology, geology and the theories of evolution and natural selection but we can also approach the question from a spiritual and/or esoteric basis.
Too often we naively suppose that only `science` so called has any valid answers to the questions of our origins but we forget that science can only approach things from a very narrow angle and perspective and even its findings are subject to constant debate and change.There are only theories;no proven `facts`.
Baron Julius Evola,the great Aryan philosopher and mystic wrote in chapter 19 of his `Ride the Tiger`-
"The apogee of the myth of physical science coincided with that of the bourgeois era, when positivist and materialist scientism was in favour."

And again-

"None of modern science has the slightest value as knowledge;rather,it bases itself on a formal renunciation of knowledge in the true sense."

So where do we seek understanding about our origins? Where should we turn to as a starting point?
I would suggest that we turn to the great store-house of myth that has been faithfully preserved by our ancestors down the millenia.
For Germanic peoples that means the Eddas and the Sagas of the pre-christian era.
Germanic myth in common with the myths of all the other Indo-European peoples is solar in nature.
The great sun hero Siegfried/Sigurd is just such an example of a Germanic solar hero.
Wilhelm Richard Wagner[1813-1873] based most of his music dramas upon the myth of the Aryan sun hero with characters such as the afore-mentioned Siegfried, the swan knight Lohengrin,Tannhaueser and Parsifal.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky[1831-1891], the founder of `Theosophy` in volume 1 of `The Secret Doctrine` referred to the first race of man as being celestial in origin. Mankind has in stage regressed from spirit into matter. The first two `Root Races` were aetherial in nature. By the time of the Third Lemurian Root Race man had descended into matter.
The Fifth Root Race, the Aryan race is destined to give way to a higher being of man,the sixth and seventh Root Races. The German philosopherFriedrich Nietzsche[1844-1900] referred to the coming man as the `Uebermensch`, the over man or higher man. As Aryans our destiny is to evolve from matter into spirit, to be born again as the sun hero. Siegfried/Sigurd is the prototype of this new man.
The question of how our race collectively and how we as individuals can progress to this stage will be addressed in a seperate post.

In the cult of Arian regeneration, I believe it is an error to accord much respect for Sigurd Fafnirsbane. He always impressed me as unfaithful to the valkyrie Brynhild; I view sexual fidelity and virginity before marriage to be among the higher principles of archaic Arian culture and Sigurd’s failure there degrades him to my mind. As is so often the case in Arian history both with respect to nations and individuals, the more famous is more respected, but less pristine and in overall decay, compared to the earlier and more modest. Republican Rome was greater than Imperial Rome, old Prussia greater than the German Empire. Willpower and might controlled within an independent, modest reserve is more versatile and engenders a greater future than willpower committed (i.e. addicted) to the cult of vulgar fame, honor, glory which enrapture the heart but distract and ultimately enfeeble the loins and engender lesser offspring. The history of the Arian nations, one after another, is the history of conquering heroes and free warlike nations becoming libidinally obsessed with fame, honor and wealth, which is to say the admiration and reputations and economic products of servile men and women. Such a libidinal interest in public opinion is, I believe, a kind of psychosexual promiscuity which distracts the passions and reduces sexual fidelity to one’s wife and family, the foundation of the race. Why were the Goths conquered by the Swedes after Beowulf died? Because Beowulf loved fame too much and failed to father a worthy successor. Likewise the fall of the Volsungs after Sigurd—he was too busy slaying the dragon and seeking fame in Burgundy to have steady, faithful sexual relations. Why go to the Burgundian court? Throw the treasure in the river, stay with Brynhild, and make war on the Burgundians if necessary. So in the Volsung saga I respect Volsung and Sigmund as heroes more than Sigurd, and I think the excessively high reputation of Sigurd Fafnirsbane from ancient times points to a pitiful and vulgar streak in the Teutonic race as well as the Arian races as a whole (Roman, Hellenic et al.) which led all too easily to christianity and democracy. Many Arians love a doomed hero- perhaps because of their own moral turpitude? In opposition to Sigurd, Cuchullain, Akhilleus and the other fame worshippers I would rather praise more abstractly driven and independent heroes such as Odin, Herakles, Starkathr, and Ragnar Lothbrok. The entire Arian race degenerated from ancient times because of love of fame, admiration and wealth which detracted from faithful, sacrificial dedication to divine traditions and family values, causing irregular mating habits, miscegenation and the race-cultural degeneration of Arian families. In order to rise above the failings of the ancient Arians I believe that the modern regenerant Arian should excise those vices.

Is that the same Rome that saw people with Vomatoriums for gluttony, wierd sex parties including homosexuallity, etc. etc. etc.???

If the 'good' do nothing, then the 'bad' enslave all humanity... so maybe someone being famous for killing (killing is seen by many now-a-days as 'immoral') is not 'bad' merely for doing so... depending upon who/what they are killing, and why...??

Just wondering your thoughts...
