Warrior Core of the Stratum

Fig. 1 The upper estates of Teutonic (Germanic) nations were such a warrior core within the Christian Stratum in Europe.

There exist nations which officers from upper class (noble estate) play the role of a specific warrior core that “cements” the religious paradigmatic stratum (a cyclic period of 1850 years) and ensures the expansion and protection of the paradigm during that period.

The upper estates of Teutonic (Germanic) nations were such a warrior core within the Christian Stratum in Europe. The warrior core represented by corresponding nations exists, just like the spiritual (sacerdotal) core, throughout the whole stratum, i.e. 1850 years. Teutonic nations maintained such a relatively high passionarity - beginning with the appearance of Goths on the stage of dying Antic world and then through Franks, Vikings, within the framework of the Holy Roman Empire, through Swedes, Prussians and, finally, the English. The defeat of Germany in two world wars and the downfall of the British world colonial Empire put an end to the core role of Germanic nations in the Christian Stratum.

Turkic nations and the nations that are close to their family of languages (hereafter, we may call them Altaic nations as a whole) – from Finns and Hungarians in the west till Japanese in the east – have the same root with a higher passionarity. The upper estates consisting of the representatives of those nations represented the warrior core in an area from Carpathian Mountains to the Pacific. The manifestation of the core starts with the expansion of Huns and the creation of a vast Turkic conglomerate (Turkic Caliphate) in the territory from China to Carpathian Mountains. Then - in the course of time - that core is represented by Mongolians, Manchurians in China and, finally, by Japanese. The “Turkic (Altaic)” core stops existing with revolution in Turkey and the defeat of Japan in the Second World War.

The states of nations that existed in the territories where present-day Russia and China are situated were regularly - especially at initial time – cemented by the abovementioned outer warrior cores. As regards the territory of Russia, the influence of western and eastern warrior cores took place by turns in a specific period of time (to be considered in the following). Goths were replaced by Turkic Caliphate, then the Varangians came, following whom Mongolians encroached. Finally, the time has come when there was always German blood in the blood of Russian tsars because Russian rulers were aware of a hereditary role of the core element. However, the revolution in 1917 removed all the core complexes from Russia. As to China, the Altaic core only prevailed in ruling dynasties.

As concerns the preceding Antique (Post-Ariana) stratum, the similar role was played in Europe by the Greeks and Celts just as all Post-Ariana nations in the Middle East and India (from Hittites and Hurrians to the Persian and Indian Aryans).

Islam is a result of delayed reaction of the most archaic region to the surge of new spirit in the first centuries of our stratum. Arab Caliphate emerged at times when the passionarity after the transition period decreased down to a level when the ruling started approaching the point of power transition from clergy to warrior estate. As a result, the religious paradigm became filled with martial spirit and represents warrior core at the same time. The disappearance is to take place more dramatically and with a certain delay as compared with the warrior cores of Christian and Buddhist paradigms which stopped existing through the world wars. Hebrews played a role of the warrior core in the Abraham stratum which was completely destroyed by Romans during two major uprisings in Judaea.

The characteristic feature of final period in each stratum (1850 years) consists in that the transitional formations such as Rome or Russia or Middle Kingdom in Egypt destroyed the warrior core of dying stratum. For example, Rome broke Celts, Greeks and Hebrews, but felt victim to German invasions, as Russia played key role in the destruction of both German and Altaic cores represented at the latest stage of the stratum by Ottoman Turks and Japanese.

However, the transition systems (in the past – Rome in Europe, Han and Jin in China, Troy, etc) (consequently in the future – both Russia and China) fall a victim to the warrior core of new stratum.

Geographical Aspects

As regards a change in the geographic location of the centers of emergence of religious and cultural paradigm in every stratum (i.e. every new such a paradigm “blooms” in a new place shifted from the place of origin of preceding paradigm), probably, there exists a synodic displacement with a specific cyclicity.

In the Middle East, the centers of emergence of religious and cultural paradigm of Ancient Kingdom in the Osiris stratum, Abraham stratum and Islamic stratum (apart from the center of emergence of Christianity) are located not far from each other: the Delta, the Dead Sea, Mecca. The direction of displacement of the centers with time takes place clockwise. Such a clockwise direction in the Northern hemisphere may be called the “indraft anomaly” which is represented as a corresponding swastika. (The rotation of corresponding geological massif masses such as Tibet indraft anomaly (with inherent offshoots), Central European indraft anomaly, Southern Caspian anomaly may be associated with that direction. The rotational direction of cyclones in the Northern hemisphere is associated with the “ascension anomaly”). Semitic language family developed close to that “ring”.

Sumerian and Assyro-Babylonian stratums were in Mesopotamia, but that area was filled by Islam in the last stratum (130-1980 AD). It shows that Mesopotamia is an area in which the paradigms are imported from an outer center just as this is the case in the territory of present-day Russia.

The paradigmatic stratums of Ariana, Greece and Central Europe also have a displacement in the clockwise direction in the course of transition if we even take into account Siberia (Altaic area) in the future as a possible paradigmatic stratum according to Oswald Spengler. Therefore, we have a part of synodic circle of paradigmatic centers – Ariana – Greece – Central Europe – Siberia. Time will show us the complete circle. Indo-European language family which originates from disintegrated common language of Hyperborean stratum – Ariana’s predecessor - developed on that circle. There also exists the Altaic circle in Central Asia on which Turkic nations and the nations that are close to their family of languages – from Finns and Hungarians in the west till Manchus and Japanese in the east developed. Russia is a product of the interaction of European and Altaic “rings”.

Fig. 2 Well-known German philosopher of the first half of the last century Oswald Spengler in his book “ Der Untergang des Abendlandes” (Waning Times of Europe) emphasized the fact of existence of “Apollo’s Soul” in the Greek civilization in ancient times and “Faust’s Soul” in the German (West-European) culture.

With regard to the latter, it should be noted that the well-known German philosopher of the first half of the last century Oswald Spengler (Fig. 2) in his book “Der Untergang des Abendlandes” (Waning Times of Europe) emphasized the fact of existence of “Apollo’s Soul” in the Greek civilization in ancient times and “Faust’s Soul” in the German (West-European) culture, however, accentuating the fact that the Slavs were not capable to create a product of that culture, but only were capable to use weapons created by that culture in order to destroy German civilization by using that weapons. These provisions correlate directly with the existence of Greek warrior core in Antique (Post-Ariana) stratum and the Teutonic core in Christian one. Besides, the role of transitional Russian factor as a “grave digger” for the Teutonic warrior core in the Christian stratum is accepted by him to the full extent. Subsequently, making his predictions O. Spengler pointed out that in the future a new similar “soul” would emerge in the area of Russian Siberia, probably, understanding that the transitional mediation of Russia between the West-European an a new core nation only could have such a geographic orientation.

By the way, O. Spengler noticed the fact that all cultures which he considered as “ organisms” pursued the same scheme of development and downfall that took place within the same historical cycle, i.e. all the cultures passed through specific stages. But he did not notice that it might be associated with solar cycles and it took place according to Confucius scheme.

As an illustration, we only consider the western part of Eurasia, but it is understood that the same schemes with a certain inherent specificity take place elsewhere in the world.

Some Features of Chaotic Transitional Period between Stratums

As noted above, the emergence of a new spiritual paradigm and a new warrior core takes place on the boundary line between preceding religious paradigms and warrior cores (between Islam and Christianity in Europe). At present, such a boundary line of “Islam-Christianity” runs from Mediterranean through Black Sea and Volga Region to Russian-Chinese border. Beginning with economically instable Mediterranean European countries – first of all, Greece, and – and politically instable Tunis, Libya, Egypt and Syria and ending with Ukraine and Caucasus.

In the preceding stratum there was such a boundary line between Celtic and Greek (Post-Ariana) warrior cores on which the passionarity of Teutonic core emerged.

It should be remembered that there exist shorter cycles that superimposed on the 1850-year pulsation. The pulsation peak of such shorter peak (to be considered below) was at the times of Marcus Aurelius in Rome. It is exactly 1850 years ago. That pulsation caused a short-time surge within the framework of dying Antique paradigm. The “parades of philosophers” organized by Marcus Aurelius correspond to a certain reanimation of the Orthodox Church in Russia nowadays.

The initial stage of the religious stratum with duration of 1850 years is accompanied by the following phenomena:

1) The great transmigration of peoples, predominantly of those becoming the warrior core in the future stratum in the direction of transitional areas (Germanic nations in Europe at the beginning of Christian stratum; Altaic nations (Huns, etc), predominantly, in Eastern Eurasia; Arabs – in the delayed archaic area of the Middle East; nations having Arian roots– Hittites, Hurrians, Persian and Indian Aryans as well as other ancestors of Scythians, Greeks and Celts – at the beginning of Antique stratum; the ancestors of Israelites of times of David and Solomon – in the Middle East at the beginning of Abraham stratum).
Fig. 3 The Alexandrian Library was destroyed in the transitional period between Antique and Christian stratums.
2) The emergence of new supranational languages – e.g. Latin and Greek in the time of dissolution of Antique world; English – nowadays; Sanskrit – at the time of dissolution of Ariana culture).
3) The degeneration of traditional scholarship and the mass destruction of cultural valuables of the dying spiritual stratum.
As a result, Herodotus and Strabon’s maps were used in Europe till 16th century; the Alexandrian Library was destroyed; in spite of the fact that there was knowledge about the Earth’s sphericity, a primitive Ptolemaic system concerning the form and place of the Earth in the Universe was perpetuated during 15 centuries, etc. The ban on dissent and unconventional knowledge evidences that there is no succession and continuity in paradigmatic values between two stratums. The transitional period is a time of forgetting the past and starting all over again.
4) As concerns changes in human characters, the dying stratum generates more and more immature persons, i.e. with hysteroid manifestations who are very suggestible. New clergy cultivates new paradigm on a highly suggestible ground. To a certain extent, it is comparable to the mass media impact nowadays, etc.

This list can be continued, but it should be noted once more that the initial period of every cycle is related to the accrescence of spiritual power that dominates over other forms of power over much of the cycle (stratum). The initial period of the stratum is characterized by a dramatic decline in material production. Esoteric character of rule is prevailing.

Economic core

Along with the warrior core, every stratum has its own economic core. Jews were such a core in the Christian stratum in Europe. Whereas they performed a role of the warrior core in the preceding (Abraham) stratum, they descended down to one lower level in the Christian stratum and committed themselves not to the role of the warrior core, but to the role of entrepreneurial core. In the future, Jews already will stop acting as a core element. In some measure, Greeks and Armenians were the economic core in the Christian stratum. Phoenicians were the economic core in the Abraham stratum. Contradictions between the economic core of the dying stratum and the emerging one of the coming stratum invariably appear in the transition period.

In the coming stratum, a role of the economic core in Europe will be performed by Teutonic nations which ran out as a warrior core and descended to the level of entrepreneurial estate, i.e. in other words, the Teutonic nations are “Jews of the Future”.

And a tension between the Jewish economic core of the past (Christian) stratum and the future Teutonic economic core is the main source of world wars in our transitional period. Therefore, the main world economic contradictions still will exist between the Teutonic (Germanic) element of Europe and the Jewish element of USA and contradictions between estates, i.e. class ones, will be of minor importance owing to the progress of global ochlocratization because of an involuntary extinction of the warrior core in the transitional period. Strange as it may seem, it is Russia that – owing to the non-availability of its own warrior and economic cores – is capable quickly (without an inertia) to respond to changes in the transitional period, because there are no links to the past core roots and it will be a ground for the emergence of new paradigms just as it was in Rome in the case of emergence of the Christian paradigm.

Also, a contradiction between Greeks and Teutonic nations involuntarily arises as a result of the core interaction in the transitional period. An inconscient contradiction between Turks, on the one hand, and Armenians and Greeks, on the other hand, is based on that underlying factor of change in the economic cores.

In the Far East, the role of economic core was performed by Chinese in Taoist and Buddhist stratums. Nowadays, Japan (in a less degree, South Korea) begins playing a part of the economic core. Therefore, contradictions between Japan and China as well as between Japan and USA are inevitable owing to the effect of the mentioned underlying factor.
