The Neolithic curse

The Cro-Magnon reconstruction in the
American Museum of Natural History.

Editor’s note: The coronavirus will have to infect 75-80% of the population before achieving what in epidemiology is called ‘herd immunity’. This means that most racially conscious whites will be infected in the next 18-24 months, when herd immunity is reached. The most alarming piece of data I’ve seen in Martenson’s videos is that, if Italians are already panicking with just 0.8% of their population infected, imagine how they will be—and the rest of the nations—with 8%. And let’s not talk about 80% to achieve the herd immunity: two orders of magnitude above the current situation in Italy!

It is critical that racially conscious whites take prophylactic measures by the time of eight, or eighty, percent of infected people. I can’t think of anything better than to provoke a paradigm shift in our bodies, so to speak, as very few can afford a bunker in the countryside. I am referring to the replacement of sugars as the sedentary source of energy to ketone bodies, as it used to be in the nomadic times of the Cro-Magnon. Remember that, biologically speaking, the Cro-Magnon was the highest type of Homo sapiens according to the racial classification of Evropa Soberana at the end of The Fair Race’s Darkest Hour.

The present translation, or rather excerpts of other of Soberana’s essays, ‘La maldición oriental: daños dietéticos traídos por la Revolución Neolítica’ (The Eastern Curse: Dietary Damage brought by the Neolithic Revolution), must be read taking into account what I said in my previous post. Soberana started his essay with a biblical quote:

Now the earth is going to be under a curse because of you; with hard work you will make her produce your food throughout your life. The soil will give you thorns and thistles, and you will have to eat wild plants. You will earn your bread with the sweat of your brow, until you return to the same soil from which you were formed: for you are dust and you will become dust! —Genesis.

Cereals are currently the greatest cause of overpopulation, and therefore they are to blame for an increasingly numerous humanity taking more and more resources from the land on which we depend. If these billions of biped parasites are sustainable in the modern world and can continue to produce garbage and pollution, it is exclusively thanks to cereals.

Monocultures (especially rice, wheat, corn, and soybeans) produce cheap, easy, but empty calories like straw or cardboard, and have wiped out the nutritional variety that our ancestors enjoyed. Intensive agriculture has demanded the use of toxic substances and the denaturation of food in exchange for producing more quantity. Humanity’s dependence on cereal grain has caused deforestation (and the destruction of the animal biodiversity that the forests harboured), the uncontrolled and disastrous multiplication of our populations, countless degenerative diseases, the impoverishment of the soil, the advancement of desertification, and more. The number of human beings increased, but their quality drastically decreased.

Neolithic societies would conceive the coming of the cereal (Demeter, Ceres) as something that brought them out of the dark. The truth is that it made their daily life easier, but the degradation of their quality of life began: deformations in the teeth, deterioration of health, metabolism disorder, the appearance of obesity and slow cultivation of a different human type that did not suit the species, but the System: a humble, conformist, candid and satisfied human type. The origins of slave morality, masterfully portrayed by Nietzsche in On the Genealogy of Morality and The Antichrist must be sought in Israel—but not during the Roman occupation, but rather at the end of the Upper Palaeolithic.

The Neolithic completely disrupted human food. Where meat used to be eaten now what was eaten are carbohydrates. As we have seen, during the Palaeolithic the main source of biological energy for humans was fat. From the Neolithic it will be the sugars. Currently, eighty percent of our calories come from cereals, and a significant portion of the remaining twenty percent comes from refined sugars, processed fats, and highly damaging artificial sweeteners. As we can see, there is hardly any room for protein or saturated animal fats.

 
The dawn of starches

Starch is a polysaccharide or complex carbohydrate present as an energy reserve in all green plants. As examples of starchy foods we have rice, wheat, corn, oats, potatoes, cassava (a potato-like tuber that is widespread in the tropics) and others. Due to the strong cereal component of the modern diet, starches supply between seventy and eighty percent of the calories consumed by humanity in typically starchy products such as pasta, bread, rice, couscous, porridge, cakes, flour, cookies, potatoes, pastries in general and the various box cereals. Starches are, no more and no less, the basis of human nutrition today.

However, the question remains as to whether, as human beings, we are evolutionarily adapted to this substance. Animals really adapted to the digestion of starches are called seed predators or granivores. Among them are many birds and pigs, who have huge salivary glands that secrete a wide variety of enzymes designed to break down starches. Humans have the AMY1 gene, which gives us the ability to metabolise starch, but we only have one enzyme capable of breaking it down: salivary amylase or ptyalin.

That we are not biologically equipped for the optimal assimilation of starch is unsurprising. Over millions of years we evolved as hunter-gatherers and our genetics adapted to meats, fats, organs, and wild berries. In evolutionary terms, we started very recently (6,000 years ago in north-western Europe and the Cantabrian Cornice) ingesting massive amounts of starches. All this time our bodies have done nothing but protest and show signs of nonconformity. Paleo-archaeologists are well aware that the fossil record indicates an impressive decline in health and quality of life as agriculture was adopted; so much so that dental defects, osteoporosis and skeletal underdevelopment are often taken as reliable indicators to date the arrival of the Neolithic in a certain area.

In more recent times we have seen a strange starch promotion campaign at the cost of animal fats. Thus, since the 1970s the traditional American breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausages and butter has been gradually replaced by showcase food for hysterical menopausal women: the usual bowl of Special K with skim milk, coffee with saccharin, a slice of bread (naturally, with margarine instead of butter), a tablespoon of virgin olive oil, a glimpse of the latest gossip magazine, and a Coke to carry in your bag. The agricultural industry has increased the consumption of refined carbohydrates because they are the cheapest nutrients to produce; they are sold with an immense profit margin and they constantly innovate the market with a wide variety of products every year. In addition, it is easy to get addicted to them. There is nothing more profitable for the entrepreneur than investing in cereals. Then, of course, we complain about our deplorable state of health and blame everything on cholesterol, regardless of the most discreet culprit: starch.

Since the 1970s, the annual consumption of cereal grains has increased by about 25 kg per person, and the consumption of artificial caloric sweeteners (especially high fructose corn syrup) has increased by 15 kg. At the same time, total caloric consumption has increased 400 more a day since media agencies began stigmatising fat and recommending cereals. In contrast, cholesterol consumption has been dramatically reduced in record time. And yet, with food globalisation, health has suffered a colossal collapse, perhaps not seen since the arrival of the Neolithic: various degenerative diseases such as diabetes, candidiasis and obesity are multiplying at an increasingly rapid rate. The average western citizen is, to the delight of the pharmacological industry—which, let us not forget, feeds on and is enriched by our diseases—, a true and authentic garbage bag.

China is currently the world’s No. 1 cereal producer, followed by the United States. It’s not just about not being adapted to starches. The starch diet can kill and probably is, indirectly, the greatest mass murderer in the history of the planet. Here we will look at some of the many serious problems that cereals pose to human health […].

Keto diet and the 4 words

By trying by all means to prevent contagion from the coronavirus these days I discovered the Ketogenic diet, as the general state of health of our bodies is related to the proclivity to contagion. One might think that a diet rich in animal fats contradicts what I call the four words, but it is not the case.

If it is a matter of ‘avoiding all unnecessary suffering’ it is quite reasonable to emulate Hitler’s initiative to eliminate the slaughterhouses, in case Germany won the war (or Goering’s to eliminate vivisections, which was implemented in the Third Reich). There’s no need to torment mammals in the slaughterhouses or in the labs.

But fishing for basic nutrients could be thought of as ‘necessary suffering’ of sea fish for the health of the white man, at least until we figure out a way to synthesise those nutrients in the laboratory. (In my twenties I was a huge science-fiction fan of Arthur Clarke, who in several of his stories imagined a future where meat will be synthesised by artificial means without the need for any slaughter.) So, this day I did not violate the four words when eating tuna after a pumpkin flower soup.

The need to change our unhealthy eating habits through a Ketogenic diet will be explained in my next excerpt from an article that Evropa Soberana wrote in 2013, before this diet gained immense popularity. At the moment I can only advance a single passage from Soberana’s article about how insulin disorder has a negative effect on the immune system:

Insulin remains floating in the bloodstream long after the sugar has been metabolised. Its most well-known side effect is to produce a new episode of sugar hunger, since insulin excess in our blood needs something to do. It ‘gets bored’ so to speak and demands more sugar to burn.

This in turn will release more insulin, in an undesirable vicious cycle that leads directly to compulsive eating, obesity, and diabetes. However, the subtlest and most damaging side effect of prolonged and frequent insulin surges is that it suppresses the release of growth hormone. Growth hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland, and in addition to promoting height, muscle development, bone density, and fat-burning, it is an important immune and rejuvenating agent.

The Spaniard Soberana wrote the article in his native language. If you want introductory information in English about the Ketogenic diet see especially here, here, here and a response to criticism here (he has responded to what another YouTuber says here and here). Wikipedia has a featured article on the Ketogenic diet here.

Great personalities defend eugenics, 11

by Evropa Soberana

Many things must be destroyed to build the New Order; now we know that Germany was one of those things… That heaven exists, even if our place is hell.

—Jorge Luis Borges
Deutsches Requiem

Those who stand out at this time are once again British and American, whose predominance in science and other fields places them as the most fruitful branch of the current Indo-European world. After the Third Reich, eugenics became a taboo subject. After the fall of Christianity, the antichrist seemed to be meaningless, but in Adolf Hitler the System found the antichrist he needed to keep the flock once again in ignorance and stupidity.

This new eugenics, relying on the knowledge of DNA, genome, modern embryology and genetic engineering, has the possibility of overcoming the eugenics of the Anglo-Saxons and the subsequent ‘racial hygiene’ of the Germans to give birth, in a single generation, to a man so perfect that it would probably constitute a different species from the current Homo sapiens. In this concluding section I emphasise, above all, the new generation of scientists who were brave enough to, like Galileo in his day, express the truth without reservation. We must be encouraged to see to what extent there are important scientific authorities who defend the idea of human inequality and the need to cultivate the best genes.

Ascending as two intertwining snakes, the double helix of DNA, discovered by the controversial English scientist James Watson, contains the key to our biological configuration. While the media, in the hands of the System, are discouraged to say that science belies human equality, dozens of leading scientists, including Nobel prizes, say the opposite. But with the exception of someone of the stature of Watson, their statements generally do not reach the mass media.

Sir Charles Galton Darwin (1887-1962), a grandson of the famous biologist and genius Charles Darwin, was an English physicist who greatly supported the eugenic mentality of his ancestor. After lecturing physics in Manchester he served his country in World War I, was a professor of physics at the University of Edinburgh and the head of a faculty at the University of Cambridge. Along with Von Verschuer, the mentor of Josef Mengele, he was the editor of the racist publication Mankind Quarterly, which articles are often cited in The Bell Curve. He was vice-president, director and president of the Eugenics Society.

‘Eugenics is the study of all agencies under social control which can improve or impair the racial quality of future generations’ (Francis J. Galton, quoted in Edwin Black, War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race, New York: Four Walls Eight Windows, 2003, 18).

Alva Myrdal (1902-1986). Mother of two children, Swedish diplomat, head of the Social Science section of UNESCO, promoter of the model of the welfare state, parliamentarian and Nobel Peace Prize in 1982.

Until 1970, the Swedish Government had about 62,000 defective individuals sterilised.

Sweden was a country famous throughout the world, not only for its purity of blood, but for being the homeland of a truly beautiful, healthy, sporty, strong and full of beautiful human specimens. With the repeal of the sterilisation decrees of the unfit and the massive influx of third world immigration, Sweden is now a country as degenerate as any western country, in serious danger that its valuable ‘Viking human capital’ may be extinguished.

This woman joins the list of prominent Scandinavian eugenicists such as Søren Hansen (anthropologist, not to be confused with the current Danish golfer), Jon Alfred Mjøen, Herman B. Lundborg, Tage Kemp, Harr Federley, and Gunnar Myrdal.

Cyril D. Darlington (1903-1981), English biologist, cytologist, botanist, geneticist and eugenicist, famous for being the man who discovered the chromosome.

A member of the Royal Society and recipient of the Darwin Medal, he launched harsh criticism of the Soviet Union’s pseudoscientific stance, denying Mendel’s laws in favour of the communist fallacy of Lysenkoism.

He opposed the 1950 UNESCO statement regarding the racial issue and refused to sign it. In 1972, together with fifty other prestigious scientists, he signed the Resolution on Scientific Freedom Regarding Human Behavior and Heredity, an agreement that ended the worrisome attempts of the System to censor and limit the studies of genetic differences. Darlington defended his colleague John R. Baker (1900-1984), biologist, cytologist and anthropologist, and author of the controversial book Raza (1974).

Konrad Lorenz (1903-1989). Austrian zoologist, ethologist, doctor in the Eastern Front who was taken prisoner by the Russians, innovative investigator of animal behaviour and Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1973.

‘Just as in cancer the best treatment is to eradicate the parasitic growth as quickly as possible, the eugenic defense against the dysgenic social effects of afflicted subpopulations is of necessity limited to equally drastic measures… When these inferior elements are not effectively eliminated from a [healthy] population, then—just as when the cells of a malignant tumor are allowed to proliferate throughout the human body—they destroy the host body as well as themselves’ (A. Chase, The Legacy of Malthus: The Social Costs of the New Scientific Racism, New York: Alfred Knopf, 1980, 349).

Roger Pearson. Born in 1927, he is still with us! He was active as a Nordicist anthropologist and English editor of pro-Nazi tendency. His Early Civilizations of the Nordic Peoples is a practical compendium of Nordic history. He founded the Northern League (a controversial Nordic organisation for having several former SS officers such as Arthur Ehrhardt and Nordicist Hans Günther) and famous racist and eugenic magazines Mankind Quarterly and Journal of Indo-European Studies, in addition to being president of the World Anti-Communist League, a notable anti-communist association that attracted a large number of ex-Nazis.

James D. Watson. Born in 1928, like Pearson he is still with us. He was active as a biologist. Very famous after the Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of the DNA molecule: the molecule that carries an organism’s genetic code.

Watson recently became famous again for starring in some controversies, such as stating that blacks have less intelligence than whites. In 2007, after the hysterical and sparkling pantomime that the Pharisee fanatics of the media mounted following his insignificant, though perfectly logical statement on Africa, Watson resigned as president of the Cold Harbor Laboratory, where he had worked 43 years. (*)

James L. Hart (born in 1944), American Republican political activist. Hart argues that there are favoured races that invented the car and trips to outer space, and other races that are incapable of such achievements.

He supports unimpeded eugenics, opposes racial integration by claiming that if our ancestors had been ‘integrated’ centuries ago, electric light and aviation would never have appeared. He preaches the need to lead a ‘war against the poverty genes’ which, according to him, accumulate particularly in marginal areas of the West such as Detroit, a predominantly black American city, and in the Third World.

In 2004, Hart introduced himself as a representative of the Eighth Tennessee State District, but his own party boycotted him as a ‘white supremacist’.

Miscegenation: the ultimate sin

Below, some passages from one of Evropa Soberana’s essays in The Fair Race’s Darkest Hour:

Racial interbreeding disturbed this primary equilibrium. Mixes are indeed contemplated by Nature: the Armenid race comes from one of them. But this mix subsequently evolved, mutated and underwent natural selection by the environment obeying the tough laws of Darwinism, until it stabilised in a new racial type many millennia later. Disordered mixes, typical of globalist civilisation, have nothing to do with this natural laissez-faire envisaged by the natural order. Modern race mixing is an attack on human biodiversity and an aggression against dozens of millennia of evolution. In the times when life was pure and Nature followed her path unaltered, each race was walking its own path, straight ahead to become a different species. This was before the rise of materialistic civilisation, which perverted the natural order, consuming its hatred towards Nature and mankind, and materialising its resentment towards biological nobility by preaching equality and promoting chaotic crossbreeding. To mix with another variety is an abomination and an affront against all this work of perfection of natural and sexual selection of dozens of thousands of years.

To make things worse, primitive races feel sexually attracted to modern ones: a threat to evolution. Primitive races have an instilled instinct to procreate with the modern ones. This has been translated into millions of rapes and kidnaps of European women, including the unprecedented rape epidemics suffered today due to mass immigration in Europe and Oceania, and to the integration in North America and South Africa. The behavior of the primitives responds to the instinctive desire to improve the genetic code without evolution; that is, without the lengthy effort of undergoing a severe natural selection. It also responds to indiscriminate sexuality, developed to compensate with numerical quantity a lesser individual quality.

As to the debasement of white women there are numerous and illustrative examples, such as the Huns, Mongols, Turks, Tatars or Bolshevism. Another oriental occupation—Jewry—has behaved in a similar way in the western world through pornography, social politics, white slave trade, nightclubs, the fashion industry, music and subliminal propaganda. The purpose is turning the European woman into a commercial product and open her to the capitalist market, ‘globalizing’ her. This behaviour is understood when taking into account the desires of primitive races for enslaving the modern ones, acting in a vampirical manner over their genetics and obtaining economic benefits in the process. The genetic code is not improved by this kind of attacks on Nature. The mongrels would only benefit the most primitive race, whereas the noble becomes debased.

The Nordids can only expect a backward leap of dozens of millennia in the evolution of their genetic code—and traumatising their genome forever if they crossbreed with other reproductive communities. If we consider how innocent and carefree modern races are (self-confidence in one’s capability tends to relax defences against much shrewder races), we are faced with a serious threat of human devolution.

It is necessary to regenerate the genetic heritage of the West to avoid the biological collapse of mankind. Embryo selection, eugenics and genetic engineering could be fabulous tools to regenerate the white race, but for this to happen we must first defeat the anti-evolutionary, dysgenic selection and egalitarian obscurantism of the mass media manipulated by international finance. International finance is not concerned with evolution but with corrupting everything noble and pure, and burying it in the rotten matter of inferior world order. Civilisation must not exist to promote the development of culture, technology, luxury or comfort but to promote the development of man himself: the evolution of the genetic code. For civilisation depends on genes, not the other way round. It is ridiculous that civilisation turns against the genetic heritage that created it, like a snake that bites its tail.

The new racial classification

Editor’s Abstract: The European race is divided into three primordial races: the European Nordid White (‘White Nordid’ or WN), the Nordid Central Asian Redhead (‘Red Nordid’ or RN), and the Near Eastern Armenid.

The white race is actually a mixture of two or more races. We cannot say, ‘This person is a pure white’ but ‘This person has a mixture of A, B and C races in such proportions’. With terms like Aryan or White we designate a mixture between White Nordid and Red Nordid and its mild crossing with non-white ‘Armenids’ or ‘Mongolids’—usually people of Germanic and Slavic origin.

Therefore, while the ideal white is a White Nordid with a Red Nordid, we cannot say that those whites who have some Armenid or Mongolid genes are non-whites. However, we could say they are non-whites if they have substantial Armenid and/or Mongolid blood and especially Congid blood.

What happened to our werewolves?

The ‘berserkergang’ or possession

Before combat, the Berserkers entered together in a trance called berserksgangr or berserkergang. This trance was the process of possession, for which not everyone was prepared, because their energy could destroy the body of the profane. According to the Scandinavian tradition, such a state of ecstasy began with a sinister chill that ran through the body of the possessed and made his hair rise on end and produce Goosebumps.

This was followed by contraction of the muscles, a premonitory tremor, increased blood pressure and tension, and a series of nervous tics in the face and neck. Body temperature began to rise. The nasal fins dilated. The jaw tightened and the mouth contracted in a psychotic grimace revealing the teeth. Then came disturbing gnashing of teeth. The face inflated and changed colour, ending in a purple tone.

They began to foam through the mouth, to growl, to shake, to roar and scream like wild animals, to bite the edges of their shields, to beat their helmets and shields with their weapons and to tear their clothes, invaded by a fever that took possession of them and turned them into a beast, their blind instrument.

Witnessing such a transformation must have been something alarming and anguishing, reminiscent of the most urgent panic. It was a full-fledged initiation transformation, and some have seen in it the origin of the legends of werewolves.

After this process, the Berserkers received the Od or Odr (called Wut in Germania and Wod in England), the inspiration that Odin granted to some warriors, initiates and poets, touching them with the tip of his spear Gugnir (‘shuddering’). With it they became a furious whirlwind of blood and metal.

The physical strength of the ‘inspired’ by Od fever increased in a superhuman and inexplicable way, and also increased their resistance, aggressiveness and combative fanaticism. The pain, the fear or the fatigue disappeared, and what replaced them was an intoxicating sensation of will, unstoppable power and desire to destroy, devastate, kill, annihilate and overthrow…

If we imagine the appearance of those men laden with muscles, veins, nerves and tendons, with their face twitching under the skin of the beast, the fanatical clear eyes opened like plates and shining with that acies oculorum that Julius Caesar and Tacitus noticed among the German warriors; the teeth clenched with fury and foaming, splashed with enemy blood, we will instantly understand that those warriors had nothing to do with modern Western man.

These Berserkers were of the same blood as many modern Europeans, but they were men who lived for war, while the middle Westerner of today is a soft effeminate who lives for peace and, in his nearsightedness, persists in believing that he knows everything about the world and life.

The Wut, Wod, Od or berserkergang was a terribly intense and violent trance, in which one completely lost control and reason, and in which the beast freed itself of its iron chains to vent its claustrophobia and to ride in glorious and unbridled freedom through the dark and blurred forest, without responsibilities, without ties, without limits and without laws. It was not just about letting the inner beast emerge, but letting itself be possessed by the absolute, external divinity…

Some Berserkers, without receiving any injury, fell dead after the battle for their superhuman effort: their bodies were not prepared to be instruments of divine fury—at least for such a long time. Life expectancy was probably shortened for many years after each ‘session’ of berserkergang.

Today’s Europeans

Let us compare today’s Europeans with the Spartans. We feel panic when encountering such physical, mental and spiritual degeneration; such stultification. European man, who used to be the hardest and most courageous of Earth, has become a weakling rag and degenerated biologically as a result of comfort. His mind is weak; his spirit fragile, and on top of that he considers himself the summit of the creation. But that man, just because of the blood he carries, has enormous potential.

The rules on which Sparta was seated were eternal and natural, as valid today as yesterday, but today the dualistic mens sana in corpore sano has been forgotten: the physical form has been abandoned producing soft, puny and deformed monsters; and the mental poisoning has produced similar abominations in the realm of the spirit.

The modern European knows no pain, no honour, no blood, no war, no sacrifice, no camaraderie, no respect or combat; and thus he does not know the ancient and gentle Goddesses known as Gloria or Victoria.

Forbidden love

The relationship between man and teenager in Sparta was that of teacher-student, based on respect and admiration: a workout, a way of learning, instruction in their way. The sacredness of the teacher-student or instructor-aspirant institution has been challenged by our society, just as the männerbund. Yet, both types of relationships are the foundation of the unity of the armies. Today, children grow up in the shadow of the feminine influence of the female teachers, even through adolescence. It is difficult to know to what extent the lack of male influence limits their wills and ambitions, making them gentle beings, malleable and controllable: what is good for the globalist system.

Others spoke about the Spartan institution of love between master and disciple, but always made it clear that this love was ‘chaste’. The Roman Aelian said that if two Spartan men ‘succumbed to temptation and indulged in carnal relations, they would have to redeem the affront to the honour of Sparta by either going into exile or taking their own lives’ (at the time exile was considered worse than death).

It is noteworthy that if homosexuality was indeed so natural to the original Hellenes as it was for the Greeks of decadent states, Hellenic mythology would be infested with explicit references to such relationships, which is not, as homosexuality was a plague outside the Hellenic spirit that appeared when Greece was already declining. By the time of Plato, for example, homosexuality was beginning to be tolerated in Athens itself. However, ancient and even some modern authors make it clear that Sparta did not fall in this filth.

If everyone is blonde who needs hair dyes?

Another Spartan law with racist connotations was to prohibit hair dyes. In the rest of Greece dyes were common, as were blonde wigs, the methods of hair bleaching and the elaborate and extravagant hairstyles like those of Babylon or Etruria (and later in decadent Rome). At one stage of the devolution, when the original native breed in Greece was being diluted by miscegenation, the dyes and the concoctions for hair bleaching were highly prized, especially among women. The same would happen in decadent Rome: Roman wigs were made with the golden hair taken from female German prisoners.

In Sparta the influx of foreigners was jealously limited. It was only possible to visit Sparta for pressing reasons. Similarly, the very Spartans were rarely allowed to travel abroad, and even the slave trade was banned. This was motivated by the interest of the elite that its core would not be corrupted by the softness of foreign customs. The Spartans undoubtedly were great xenophobes.

The best whites

All these elements contributed to form a highly spiritual feeling: the Spartan felt himself as the summit of the creation, the favourite of the Gods: a privileged, magnificent, splendid, arrogant and godlike creature; a member of a holy seed, a holy race and a lucky ‘link in the eternal racial chain’, a protagonist of an unparalleled feat of an extremely profound mystical experience that he was convinced would end up leading him directly to the immortality of Olympus, as the semi-divine heroes he worshiped. He was proud of being a Spartiate because precisely the fact that to become one of them it was necessary to overcome the hardest ordeals made him feel a holder of the privilege.

Nietzsche said, ‘For a tree to reach Heaven with its branches, it must first touch Hell with its roots’, and it is said that Odin went down to the huts before ascending to the palaces. This implies that only after passing the most terrible tests the warrior has earned the right to access to higher states. No pain or suffering leads to the drunken arrogance of the one who has not hardened and is unable to take the pleasure, power and luxury with respect, care, gentleness, veneration, humility and an almost apprehensive appreciation. The Spartans had reached the bottom, sinking into the whole tragedy of their atrocious instruction, and also had passed through all the manly sensations of fullness, health, vigour, strength, power, force, dominion, glory, victory, joy, camaraderie, reward and triumph. Having covered the whole emotional range that goes from pain to pleasure made them possessors of a wisdom exclusive for the heroes and the fallen, and surely no one could appreciate more the significance and importance of pleasures than the Spartans.

It existed in Sparta, as in other places, an initiating circle of priests and priestesses. Little is known about them except that they were selected men and women, initiated at specific sites in secret ceremonies called ‘mysteries’, which made them the repositories of ancient wisdom and esoteric mystical orientation. In Greece, the mysteries represented what could not be explained rationally with words, but that was necessary to see and live it. The mysteries (of Delphi, Eleusis, Delos, Samothrace, Orpheus) became prestigious initiation schools, with important people attending from all Hellas with the intent of awakening the spirit.
