Sample text

When the Aryan founds his entire thinking onto his deepest conviction of the moral meaning of the world — his own existence and the existence of the universe —, his thinking is mounted on an „inner knowing“, beyond „all occupation with proofs“. This „substance“ can not be adopted from observing surrounding nature. Yet we see the IndoAryan, as early as the Rigveda, consider nature as something that is closely related to him and as a consequence as something that has moral meaning. This shows up in his mythology, so complicated because the gods, who appear in the first place as embodiments of natural phenomena, are at the same time allegories of the internal forces in the human bosom.

It is bound to happen that a lot of Indo-Aryan thinking will appear to us as delusion; I'll be the last one to deny that; more on this later. ————— *) Mujer, llora y vencerás, by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, written 1660. 54 Organic thinking The novice however will say: this now is not the delusion of a studyroom scholar, as it would be in our world, instead it is the slowly risen „common wisdom“ of an entire people, a natural product grown organically. This ought to be sufficient to allow oneself to assume that this delusion holds many things that must be seriously examined.

True is, that we've fought a long and bloody war — from Scotus Erigena until today (where professors of philosophy still have to be very careful and have the almost ineluctable obligation to lie) — for the freedom of thought; but, as the Indo-Aryan profoundly teaches: „There is no thinking without faith,“ the light of our genuine, own world-view burns under the bushel; for it cannot accept this Syro-Semitic believe, that doesn't get along with our thinking, and it can not formulate to learn from the Indo-Aryans, because we've forgotten.
