Neolithic Farmers Also Went East

(November 26, 2023) Broad view of showing the spread of Neolithic farmer civilization. Some went west into Europe forming the Ancient Druid Civilization while some went east into Persian and India forming the Magi Civilization. Both civilizations suffered invasions from the Indo-European speaking steppe-people. Based on the archaeological evidence from the Indus Valley the Druid and Magi civilizations were very similar culturally yet each had their own trajectory of development which only pollenated the other on those rare times when east west trade routes were opened. Not much else is known because their surviving archaeological texts have not been properly translated yet. (from Summary from Wade, 2018)

One important influence from the east and the core of most ethical systems today is the spiritual network. While the Druid civilization had a life network that could be inhibited by emotions such as anger and jealousy it did not originally have the concept of a spiritual or emotion/motion power network which connected every spirit. This idea came from the east through Greek philosopher Heraclitus who called it Logos and from Jesus who learned about it when Herod the Great opened the trade route from Persia to the newly bult port city of Caesarea Maritima which passed through Capernaum.

No complete works of Heraclitus exist today. All we have are quotes found in later texts such as:

(Heraclitus, quoted in Hippolytus, Refutation of all Heresies It is wise for those who listen not to me but to the Logos to agree that in Logos everything is one. (F10 in Waterfield, 2000)
(Heraclitus, quoted in Sextus Empiricus, Against Professors 7.133 4-7) And so one ought to follow what is common. Although the Logos is common, the majority of people live as though they had a private understanding. (F6 in Waterfield, 2000)
(Heraclitus, quoted in Sextus Empiricus, Against Professors 7.132) But this Logos which holds forever, people prove ignorant, not only before they hear it, but also once they have heard it. For although everything happens in accordance with Logos, they resemble those with no familiarity with it, even after they have become familiar with the kinds of accounts and events I discuss as I distinguish each thing according to its nature and explain its constitution. (F1 in Waterfield, 2000)

Logos, Yoga and Greek Philosopher Heraclitus (510 to 480 BCE)

(November 26, 2023) While Druid culture had a unidirectional network for the life class of powers since ancient times it did not have any kind of network for the motion class of powers until the Greek Philosopher Heraclitus introduced  eastern concept of Yoga as a tunable spiritual network into the Greek world and eventually Celtic culture as Awen where it was picked up by modern Druidry. "Logos" is from the Akkadian word LaGu meaning "attunement." Awen is from the Akkadian word A'u and Awu (Ayin letter slurs to /w/)  meaning "emotion/motion powers" According to these concepts people should attune to the surrounding emotion/motion powers.

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus introduced his concept of Logos into Greek and Druid cultures within 30 years after the Persians conquered his home city of Ephesus in 522 BCE. At that time he would have been exposed to Persian magic and eastern philosophy. The best translation for Logos is "spiritual harmonies."

Roman era Stoics believed that an attuned spiritual network consisting of spiritual harmonies (logos) was one of the three characteristics of Divine mind along with nous (reasoning as the chaining together of facts) and ettistnun (knowledge of the facts). The  Stoic author Epictetus (c.50 – c.135 CE) and Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121-180 CE) write these:​

(Epictetus Discourses 2.8) God brings benefit but the good also brings benefit. I would seem therefore, that is where the true nature of God is to be found. There too will be that of the good. Then what is the nature of God? Flesh, in no way whatever. Land, in no way. Fame, in no way. He is nous (reasoning), ettistnun (knowledge), and logos. (Hard 2014)​
(Marcus Aurelius Book 4 of Meditations) Constantly regard the universe as one living being, having one substance and one soul; and observe how all things have reference to one perception, the perception of this one living being; and how all things act with one movement; and how all things are the cooperating causes of all things which exist; observe too the continuous spinning of the thread and the contexture of the web

The Bible in the Gospel of John incorrectly translates logos as “word” or “message.” The author of the Gospel of John uses "word" for Logos below:

(John 1:1) In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God (Theos), and the Logos was God (Theos).

The Apostle Paul also used “logos” in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 Here Christian translators again translate it incorrectly as "message." They deliberately do translation fraud (translating it differently in different places) so they can put their own theological spin on the original text. 

(1 Corinthians 12:7-11, NIV) 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message (logos) of wisdom, to another a message (logos) of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
