The Real Turan: Confusions and Clarifications

PonticsteppesThe Real Turan: Confusions and Clarifications

by Herman Warren

An abundance of archeological evidence shows us that the ancient Indo-Europeans, or Aryans in older writings, originated on the Pontic Steppe, which stretches from eastern Romania to Central Asia, but especially in present-day Ukraine and southwestern Russia.  They were the first in human history to domesticate the horse.  They vastly expanded from Western Europe to Western China, though their direct and permanent influence in the east may have more or less stopped at India.  (The extent of their influence on China remains a bit of a mystery.)

Since the middle ages, even a little bit before Islamic scholars mostly concocted the confusing identification, the word “Turan” or “Turanian” has been associated with the Turks, or with Turco-Mongolian peoples in general.  This confusion was cemented in the 19th Century by the “Magyarized” Jewish atheist thinker Armin Vambery, founder of the pan-Turanist ideology.  But the original “Turan” and “Turanians” referred to an Aryan-Iranian people, bitter rivals of the Zoroastrian Persians.  It was thus that Oswald Spengler, in his unfinished and (as of this writing) untranslated posthumous work, could refer to the original Aryan homeland and horse-driven culture complex as “Turan.”

Spengler wrote that the Indo-Europeans emphasized “sky instead of sun” and “did not think of the sun as a star, but rather the light, the redness, brightness, heat of the heavens…”  The gods of this “Turan” were elemental “expressions of polarity,” not the southern “colorful image of a set of figures.”  They were “weaving powers, not concrete figures… No personal gods.” [1]

The most interesting and convincing aspect of this portrait of the Indo-Europeans is that their spirituality was fundamentally anti-Humanistic.  It can arguably be seen as a pagan anticipation of St. John Chrysostom’s doctrine that God has nothing in common with created things, or at least somewhat analogous to it.  It is far removed from the Renaissance’s revisionist attempt to supposedly revive Europe’s pre-Christian heritage.

The conquering Indo-Europeans smashed the by-then-degenerated fertility goddess of pre-Aryan Southern Europe, who had most likely become a pornographic “fag hag” anti-matriarch – the appropriate and rightful mistress of any culture based on homosexuality.  She partially survived into the Classical civilization, but was virulently opposed by everything that was truly Indo-European in it, until being finally crushed once and for all by Christianity.  Nothing is more essentially Humanistic than homosexual sodomy, so the Indo-European spirituality could not have been based on it in any way.

From this brief study, we have clarified several misunderstood points.  Firstly, that the name “Turanian” for Turco-Mongolians is a confusing anachronism, and that the term would actually better refer to the Indo-European culture complex.  Secondly, that Humanism, not Christianity, is totally alien to the original Indo-European spirituality.  Thirdly, that from this it follows that the ultimate sexual expression of the Humanistic spirituality is alien to the Indo-European spirituality as well.

Whereas many alt-right/trad/nat websites offer me little more than a nihilistic stone, TradYouth gives me bread. Thank you.
