Historical Baggage: The Book, Healing History
1. A Picture Is Worth More Than A Thousand Indo-European Words
Ideographs, Symbols and the Alphabet – This chapter addresses the many pictographs and ideographs that were part of the foundational matrilineal cultures and writing systems, before the oppressive spread of patriarchal Indo-Europeans. The Indo-Europeans took the writing systems of the conquered and applied them to their Indo-European phonetics, creating syllabic and alphabetic writing systems, removing the matrilineal association of the images. I show that the matrilineal culture does have a written history and what the origins and meanings of these images are, a number of which are in our own English alphabets.
2. Warmongering PIEs
Patriarchs, Warriors, Kings and Their Priests – This chapter is necessary to realize just what patriarchal Indo-Europeanism is. Kind of like the red pill, blue pill moment in the Matrix. Once you see the pattern, you will not be able to unsee their culture and how it surrounds us and affects us, even today. I show their caste systems, their misogyny (ex. how the Indo-Europeans tried to take over birthing and nursing from the women), their intolerant religious foundation, which is the vehicle for their fear and hatemongering .
3. Barefoot and Pregnant
The Earth, Creatresses and Their Creations – Chapter 3 covers the ancient, almost universal association of a creatress with the earth and all life, much like the water of creation and the amniotic birthing fluids of mothers. Many of the earth mothers are covered, including the common spider mother motif, from across the world. This chapter also shows the aspects of the humans beings created (including the various transgenders) from the matrilineal perspective and the later, revisionist history of the patriarchal view of how they were deformed or diseased.
4. Well Behaved Women Rarely Make
Women, Mothers and Goddesses – Women have a rich history which has been ignored or rewritten by patriarchal Indo-Europeanism. This chapter reveals the struggle of these women, to remain egalitarian women, even after their cultures were swallowed up by the invading Indo-Europeans and the ensuing religious vilification and marginalized goddess creation by the patriarchal religious cultures.
5. We Are Not Talking Nuns and Convents
Mothers, Daughters and Sisters – This chapter is rich with examples of the strong bond between women and families, in various capacities, shown in the artwork and jewelry that has survived time. Relationships of women and communal dancing, mothers and daughters, the strong relationship of sisters, even if they weren't sisters by blood, the co-ruling women of the communities, shown by the double headed female figures and the sexual love of one woman for another. The patriarchal culture not only created an unnatural patrilineal society, to usurp the mothers association with her offspring; but they removed the daughters from the mother's home, a common patriarchal Indo-European military strategy to dislocate and isolate the enemy from their home turf and support system.
6. “Have You Ever Been With
A Warrior Woman?”
Protectors, Maidens Warriors and Amazons – The natural protective aspect of women has been squelched and even outlawed by patriarchal Indo-European laws, that forbid women the ability to defend or bear arms. This chapter covers the protective and warring characteristics of the ancient women and those that refused to submit to patriarchal Indo-Europeanism, striking fear into their misogynistic hearts in more ways than one.
7. Such Watery Tarts
Nymphs, Sirens and Whores – The life blood of any family or village is water. Without it you cannot survive. Whether springs, rivers, lakes or oceans, most ancient matrilineal cultures were founded on water and their symbols and lore bear this out. These self sufficient aquatic oriented cultures were a threat to the patriarchal Indo-Europeanism that sought to subjugate women and remove their connection to the water. These women were typically vilified as seducing water nymphs, sirens and mermaids, which Europe was still trying to exterminate in the Middle Ages. The aquatic connection is examined and compared with the surviving Ama divers of Japan and the Haeyno divers of Korea, both matrilineal cultures, where the women held positions of prestige in their communities, as well as being the bread winners for their families.
8. Mother Necessity Gives Birth
Healers, Inventors and Artisans – They say that necessity is the mother of invention. This chapter delves into the ancient accounts of the women that were the inventors of many of the arts and healing which became the foundations of culture and civilization we know today. A perfect example are the Mes, the Tablets of Civilization, in the ancient Sumerian culture, that were worn around the neck of the great mother Nammu. She was murdered, and later depicted as a seven headed dragon, by the patriarchal Indo-European culture, with their hero king taking the Mes for himself. Later, Inanna (Nammus granddaughter), reclaims her matrilineal property for the communal benefit of her people.
9. “She Turned Me Into a Newt”
Hags, Crones and Witches – Women are viewed in three stages, the maiden, the mother and the wise sage, often a midwife. In the misogynistic patriarchal view, women are not only property, but we are viewed like dairy products with a “use by” date stamped on us and once we enter menopause, we are “expired”. At that point, the once revered wise women of the matrilineal cultures, are viewed as the fearful hags, witches and crones of the folk tales, to scare children with. For example Baba (old woman), the wise woman of the northern forests, a healer and midwife, becomes Baba Yaga, the old witch woman to the Slavic patriarchal Indo-Europeans. Her mortar and pestle of her healing arts becomes the proverbial broom that she flies around on. In all patriarchal Indo-European cultures, the feared threesome (generally) of these hags, witches, and crones, are a poor reflection of the awesome, ancient matrilineal women, who were once revered and a source of wisdom and healing in their communities, not hunted and killed, which the patriarchy has done for thousands of years.
10. Coolest F- Word Ever
Goddess Movement, Neo-Paganism and Feminists – While the other chapters have the ancient and the modern applications paired, this chapter focuses on the modern waves of Feminism, Neo-Paganism and the Goddess Movements, which have all resulted as a response to the misogynistic patriarchal Indo-European cultures thousands of years war against women, men and the homosexuals/transgenders. This chapter discusses egalitarianism in the modern context and that it is achievable.
