    Post The Armanen Futhork


    Guido von List's Armanen rune-staves.

    Let us look at List's Armanen rune row, rune by rune.


    Starting with rune number 1;



    FA

    This first is called 'Fa'.

    In shape and sound, it is obviously related to 'F'.

    Graphically it seems to symbolise the horns of cattle.

    Its usual meaning in all rune rows IS 'cattle' - and by extension, 'money'.

    This makes etymological sense;

    Old English 'feoh'; cattle,
    same in Old High German 'fihu'.
    Compare Latin 'pecus', cattle ['pecunia', money]

    Change of 'p' in the Latin branch of IE to 'f' in Germanic.

    Von List extends the meaning though, taking into consideration the root of the word Fire.

    German Feuer, fire [OHG fiur; Greek pyr]

    The Listian runologist S.A. Kummer connects 'FA' to 'father'.

    We can see that the runologists make all kinds of connections to the basic root-words of the runes.

    Not only that, von List claims that the Havamal contains a passage where each verse refers to a rune in his rune row in sequence.

    The first rune has this verse;

    "The first promises to help, helpfully, in the struggle and in misery and in every difficulty".

    So 'cattle', 'wealth', 'fire' and 'father' could all fit here as being 'helps'.

    The Listian 'Knights of the Runes' call FA 'To Help'.

    So we can see the meaning move from the concrete ['cattle'] out to more abstract notions - this is the basic way of reading the runes.

    Von List brain-storms the rune thus;

    "Fa, feh, feo = fire-generation, fire-borer, livestock [Vieh], property, to grow, to wander, to destroy, to shred [fetzen]".
    ['The Secret of the Runes']

    There is a basic creativity in runes then; we take the root meanings and develop our own notions of them within the tradition.

    Any other interpretations?

    So I see you've taken on the task yourself...

    First I would like to add a proper introduction to the importance of the Amanen Futhork...



    The Armanen Rune row is in no way superior to the elder/younger Futharks. What makes this system of relevance to us Aryans is the analysis of its esoteric content regardless of the age. Keeping in mind that the job of a historian is composition of scattered fragments through time, in altered forms, in order to a create a picture which shows enough clarity to provide proper understanding of this data; the historians subjectivity is revealed in the this final product as the means of filling in the gaps. These "means" are often quiet varied and depend on the nature of the

    historian, philologist, scientist, mystic etc,.

    Runeology has been prone to much of this speculation, and in my opinion has been misinterpreted by many. Not much thought-provoking literature has been published (with the exception of several Edred Thorson titles and a few others less known) and often like most forms of Western occultism became evidently corrupted by these "New Age" movements. Surely List possessed the intuitive powers of our ancestors which he used as tools to devise (or revise from the prior forms) the principles of Armanism. It can be argued that this system lacks historical validity in some areas yet on an “esoterico-idealogical” plain it is much more applicable to our cause as nationalists and promoters of re-evolution of these forgotten ideas (or at least to some).



    -----------------------------



    Also I would like to note List's perception on the trans-human reality in order to aid those unaware of the principles, since they are crucial for understanding any of his further interpretations.



    1. the byfidic-biune dyad - The idea that matter is condensed or solidified spirit and requires a balance to be established between the two. In a purely historical sense the ignorance of this concept has lead the greatest nations to a decline and an eventual fall (being an inevitable process, it was sped up due to the lack of understanding of the above). As seen in Rome, the lack of a common spiritual understanding corrupted the socioeconomic order due the lack of a common moral code ; the downward drift in Tibet’s progress in anything other then spirituality after the emergence of Buddhism would be the opposite.

    2. the trifidic-triune triad - "As in cosmos - so on Earth"

    . This principle governs most if not all occult philosophies - the arising, being and passing away to a new arising. The concept applies to all parts of our existence and reality and can be witnessed in the stages of (1) Dynamism - force of change, alteration through time (2) Stasis - the factor of stability and order in this change; the balance in nature (3)Entropy - decay and atrophy in order to provide purpose in a constant evolution of this cyclic system. This concept is defiantly revolutionary (in the original sense of the word); borrowing from the past in order to build a brighter future.

    3. the multifidic-multiune multiplicity - Finally, flowers interprets this last cosmological principle as
    "A concept by which List tries to synthesize the virtually unlimited valances of manifestation in the natural/organic world into a coherent wholeness....multiplicity is reconciled in a similar way, not with "unity” but rather a "wholeness" model. This allows for genuine multivalance in manifestation without necessarily having to judge one form to be superior or prior to another"


    a) Runick Beyondings

    Thanks for introducing Listian metaphysics, or what you call the "trans-human reality";

    Quote Originally Posted by Tarnhari
    ;
    1. the byfidic-biune dyad
    2. the trifidic-triune triad
    3. the multifidic-multiune multiplicity
    List actually links number 2. above with the first rune, FA, when he says;



    "The root word 'Fa', which is symbolised as the 'primordial word' in this rune, is the conceptual foundation of 'arising', 'being' (doing, working, ruling), and of 'passing away to new arising' ...."
    [von List ib.,]

    This 'arising/being/passing-away to new arising' partakes of 2., the 'trifidic-triune triad'.
    The latter formulation is a bit awkward in English and conveys only a sense of things happening in threes.
    It literally means 'the split into three-three in one, set of three'.
    This is an eternally recurring threefold cycle, which can be symbolised by the following 'hiero-glyphs';


    Trifoil, left, and the Valknut

    We can quickly touch on the other two 'trans-human' realities;

    1. the bifidic-biune dyad, which means 'the split into two-two in one, set of two'.
    List relates this to the relation between spirit and matter, as you say, but also that between the Self and the World.
    Whereas the triad is cyclic, the dyad is more linear; I think of it as a constantly fluctuating duality of energy.


    Square-wave.

    3. the multifidic-multiune multiplicity, which means 'the split into many-many in one, manifold variety of the whole', could be related to the 'Mother Rune', i.e., that grid which contains all the basic elements of the runes and therefore the Universe;


    Version of the Mother Rune

    So, the rune FA relates to the triadic trans-human reality - this is as abstract as you can get, and far away from the exoteric meaning of 'Cattle' with which it begins.

    As I mentioned in the first post, IE 'p' becomes 'f' in Germanic, so the oldest known form of FA as an IE [or Aryan] root would be something like *Per-.
    This Aryan root *Per- [the * indicates that the form is not attested in writiing] means 'forward, through'.

    So this links in with the 'eternal return' of the triadic we have already discussed. Both von List and Kummer use the Nietzschean formula 'Eternal Return' when discussing this rune making an obvious nod to Nietzsche's cyclic cosmology.
    We can link the root 'FA' to the word 'Leader' then, - 'fuhrer'.

    If we turn to the alternative of FA and 'fire' we are drawn 'fasc-inatingly' to 'fascism'.

    Sense of 'wild-fire' - the charging herd.
    Wild fee, the deer.

    Sanskrit 'pacu', cattle.

    Thorsson says;

    "All in all, the F-rune defines a mobile form of power".
    ['Futhark', Thorsson]

    b) Godlings and Wights

    If we think in terms of gods, then it is worth stating something straight off.
    The Listian concept of divinity is that it is 'within'.
    A 'god' is a being who has an extra-ordinary degree of the divine within them.

    This heathenry rejects either external gods or enclosed places of worship.
    The heathen commutes with the spiritual essence out in the open and recognises that the gods are within him - HE is the god-man.

    Like the Bhagavad Geeta, List believes that there is an indestructible quality which is eternal and outlives all cycles of rebirth.
    List says of FA;

    "True wisdom lives only for the future: only the fool mourns over decay".
    [List ib.,]

    The Havamal has another verse which relates here;

    Cattle die and kinsmen die; thyself eke soon will die.
    But fair fame will fade never, I ween, for him who wins it.
    One thing I wot will wither never: the doom over each one dead.
    [Havamal 76-7]
    ('eke' means 'also'; 'wot' means 'know')

    This FA rune is, as the Havamal says, a 'help'.
    A Scandinavian Eddic Lay says;

    "Learn help-runes eke, if help thou wilt a woman to bring forth her babe; on thy palms wear them and grasp her wrists and ask the Disir's aid".
    [Sigrdrifumal 10]
    ('Disirs' are the 'Mothers')

    Here we get an indication that the FA rune may have been marked on the hands in such situations.
    Or else worn on a ring;



    All the above notions tie-in at some level or other.

    c) Englisc/ Scandinavian Traditions

    To be complete, let us look at the treatment of what List calls the FA Rune in earlier traditions.

    The Anglo-Saxons stayed close to the exoteric meaning, calling FA 'Feoh', literally cattle/ wealth.
    In an Old English rune poem we find;

    Feoh is a comfort to one and all.
    But he must share it who hopes to cast
    His lot before his lord.
    [OE Rune Poem, first verse]

    We have there the idea of 'help', and also the notion of casting lots - which as Tacitus tells us - was a runic function amongst pagan Germans some 2,000 years ago.

    An Old English fragment says;

    "Cattle (feoh) on the Earth shall bring forth and teem".

    The Old Norse and Icelandic sources use FA to mean 'gold';

    Fe [gold] causes strife among kinsmen.
    The wolf grows up in the woods.
    [Old Norse Rune Poem]

    Here is a typical admonition against materialism, found too amongst the Icelanders;

    Fe [gold] is the strife of kinsmen,
    And the fire of the flood-tide,
    And the path of the serpent.
    [Old Icelandic Rune Poem]

    d) Back to List

    So we see a fairly consistent run of meaning here across thousands of years, distilled in Guido von List's rune-lore, which says;


    FA: To Help.

    Reference source.

    I want to get back to an Indo-European [IE] or rather, Aryan, root for each of von List's runes.

    Ideally I'd like to be able to link each one to a root in the following work;

    http://www.bartleby.com/61/IEroots.html
    IE Roots

    I have achieved that with quite a few, taking into account the usually accepted rune meanings.

    Armanen Runes

    The Holy Twelve

    In looking for the Aryan Roots above, I have noticed that twelve of von List's Rune row have definite Aryan Roots.

    This means that those particular Runes could possibly pre-date the Aryan migrations.

    So I suggest that the Aryas, when in their Homeland, used a sacred 12 Rune Row ['The Holy Twelve'] which was later expanded by the Western branch of the Aryans to 16, 18 and 24 Runes.

    Indeed, that the Teutons settled on 24 Runes, which is merely a doubling of the original 12, tends to support my thesis.

    It is very significant that the Aryan Root words of the Holy Twelve are absolutely essential to the Runes and to Aryan spirituality itself.

    I give this primal rune row below with its Aryan rune names;

    The Holy Twelve Stave names:

    1] PEKU- 2] UKSEN- 3] (s)TENA- 4] ANSU- 5] REIDH- 6] SAWEL-

    7] DYEU- 8] BHERAG- 9] LAKS- 10] MAN- 11] EKWO- 12] GHABH-

    Having established my basic 12 Runes of the Aryas, I shall next look at the meanings in a subsequent post.

    I have already looked at the first rune in the first post of this thread.

    However, there I looked at it from the Listian perspective, rather than that of the Aryan root form, which is;


    PEKU-

    This root means 'wealth', 'movable property'; so we see that meaning has not changed from the earliest Aryas to the Anglo-Saxons.

    Latin gives us 'pecuinia', meaning property and wealth, from which we get words such as pecuniary, impecunious etc.,

    This derives from the Latin 'pecus', meaning cattle [obviously wealth was counted in such things as live-stock, rather than in coins at the earliest stages of civilisation].

    To the Anglo-Saxons it was 'Feoh', meaning cattle, goods, money, which gives us the words 'fee', 'fief' etc.,

    The Germanic parallel is that of *Fehu, from which we get the word 'feudal'.

    To the Norse the word for the rune was 'Fe', which in Old Norse meant 'property', 'cattle'. It also gives us the word 'fellow' as in 'fellowship'.

    So we see an excellent example here of the common Aryan tongue providing the Indo-Aryan and the Euro-Aryan branches with exactly the same concept.

    And this is eternalised in the Runes.

    The Runes are the great link with our Aryan past.

    I think of it also as the 'Fuhrer Rune' [Leader Rune]; indeed, the Norse rune poem adds this line to describe the 'Fe' rune;

    'Leader of the War-band'.

    To List this is the 'primordial word' - so it is fitting that it begineth the Futharkh.



    In the above picture by David, we see that the Roman Salute is merely an expression of the FA Rune, hence my calling it the Fuhrer Rune.

    Let us now go on to the second of our 'Holy Twelve' Runes.

    It is the rune which von List calls 'Ur', and is derived from the Indo-European root 'uksen';


    UKSEN-

    This 'uksen' reminds us of the word 'oxen', as it should. The Aryan word 'Uksen-' pertains to the 'Bull', the 'Ox'.
    From this we get the Germanic *'uhson-', which gives us;

    a) 'Ox', from Old English 'oxa', 'ox', and,

    b) 'Aurochs', from Old High German 'ohso', and ox.

    The 'aurochs' is a now extinct beast, and the rune's shape may alude to the horns of this animal.


    Image of the aurochs from the prehistoric cave art of Lascaux

    As with the first rune, we are here at a very 'primal' level of significance in terms of Aryan culture.
    The symbolism of the Bull is vital; let us look at it in detail as it occurs in a few Aryan civilisations.

    BULL:

    Scandinavian: Attribute of Thor and sacred to Freyja ...

    Mithraism: The Solar God; the bull sacrifice was the central ceremony in Mithraism. It also represented victory over man's animal nature and life through death.
    The bull and lion together symbolise death.


    Mithras slaying the Bull

    Celtic: Bull gods are divine power and strength. With the druids the bull is the sun and the cow the earth.

    Roman: Attribute of Jupiter as sky god; sacrificed to Mars; attribute of Venus and Europa as moon deities; Europa as the dawn is carried across the sky by the solar bull.


    Europa on the Solar Bull [Roman]

    Greek: Attribute of Zeus as sky god, also of Dionysos who was horned and sometimes bull-headed when manifesting as the male principle...

    Minoan: The Great God; the bull was sacrificed to the earth and earthquake god ... In Crete he appears to represent the reproductive forces of Nature.


    Minoan mural of 'bull-vaulting' rite.

    Hittite: Teshub, the Sun God, takes the form of a bull.

    Iranian: The Soul of the World; its generative power is associated with moon and rain clouds in fertility.
    The bull was the first created animal and was slain by Ahriman; from the soul of the bull came the germ of all future creation.

    Hindu: Strength; speed; fertility; the reproductive power of nature. The bull Nandin is a vehicle of Shiva, guardian of the west, who rides a bull.
    It is an attribute of Agni, 'the mighty bull', and a form of Indra in his fertile aspect.
    The bull is also the vital breath of Aditi, the all-embracing.
    The power conferred by Soma is frequently equated with that of the bull.
    Rudra unites with the cow-goddess.


    Shiva and Parvati on Nandin

    This serves as an introduction on the importance of the Bull, or Uksen, to the Aryan culture. We will next look at the Rune Ur in this context.

    The Armanen Runes Row

    Fa
    Sound: "f"

    Ur
    Sound: "u"
    Stands for: Resurrection
    Casting meaning: Ur is a physician's rune and represents resurrection, eternity, and continuity.

    Dorn
    Sound: "th"
    Stands for: Lightning and Thunder
    Casting meaning: The rune represents the thunderbolt, but symbolically it stands for targeting goals, activity and the phallus.

    Os
    Sound: "o" as in "cold"
    Stands for: Mouth
    Casting meaning: Os represents the spiritual power that is gained through speech. It is the breath of the world, its voice. It also signifies the strength that a person needs to rise up in power.

    Rit

    Sound: "r"
    Stands for: Ritual (or Primal Laws)
    Casting meaning: This rune represents the orderliness in the world, the ritual, primal law and things that are done correctly. It also stands for cynical events and rescue from an enemy.

    Ka
    Sound: "k"
    Stands for: World Tree
    Casting meaning: List's version of this rune was simply for it to represent the world tree. However more modern versions of this rune say that it stands for power, generation, ability and artfulness.

    Hagal
    Sound: "h"
    Stands for: Hail (not positive)
    Casting meaning: Due to its shape Hagal is sometimes called the Mother rune and is said that all other runes derive from its shape. It is a rune of enclosure but contains a potential for growth.

    Not

    Stands for: Birth
    Casting meaning: This rune represents birth, but in a sense of the birth of the future life that is preordained for us. Modern versions of this rune say it stands for the power of becoming as well as the power of creativity found in song. /TD>

    Laf

    Casting meaning: The rune Eh is said to symbolize duality where a pair is bound by primal law, love, trust and marriage.

    Gibor

    Sound: "g"
    Stands for: Gift of life
    Casting meaning: This rune represents the giver of life and both the giver and the gift of life itself. It is also the cosmic consciousness and the divine principle.

    There is nothing authentically Nordic or Germanic about the Armanen Runes. They are nothing but figments of Guido "von" List's fertile imagination. A knowledge of them contributes nothing to one's ability to interpret real runes or to use them in divination. They are as fictional as the Angerthas Moria.

    Maybe you note The Armanen Futharkh: A Controversial Rune Row? before making this belief.

    And they said that the Younger Fuþark was the original one while the Elder Fuþark was "invented" by some historians who just added some more runes to make it look more "serious".

    BW, what is the difference between K.M. Wiligut's Armanen runic system and Guido von List's 16 rune casting method? It sounds similar. Is it in fact the same? I read v. List's book, so I'm pretty clear with his, but what Weisthor was up to is still somewhat of a mystery to me. There really isn't just a whole bunch of info. out there on this person. I've traveled to Wewelsburg twice, the last time I went a couple years ago and stayed for 4 weeks there. I went daily to the museum and spoke with the curator and some of the staff, but there were usually only speculations on this individual and what he believed, whatever that actually was. It all sounds like a Jungian collective unconscious thing going on there. It seems like everything this man worked for, invented, concluded, came from his visions, i.e. the "collective unconscious."

    I think both got inspired by each other and used the same runes. I'm not a specialist in this topic since I stopped reading about it when I came across the first two weird explanations of the origin of runes and Adolf Lanz' (von Liebenfels) history tales.

    What i know about Wiligut is that he was kind of "Rasputin" for Himmler. He claimed to descent from a long line of ancient wise men from the tribe of the Uiligotis. He dated there origin in a prehistorical time. Wiligut claimed to have all his knowledge from a "shared consciousness" with his ancestors, which allowed him to travel more than 4.000 years back in time. All he knew about Runes his grandfather Karl Wiligut taught him, he said.

    Wiligut also said that the Bible was written by Germanics. He believed in a "Irminen"-religion which differed from the "Wuotan"-religion by worshiping a germanic god called "Krist", which later was abused by Christianity to form a new religion.

    The contents of the "Irminenreligion" are not really clear, but it seems to be a complete transformation of Christianity and its values to Germanic based history and culture. Wiligut said that the "Irminenreligion" was founded 228.000 years b.C. (a time, where there were three suns shining down to the earth, which again was populated by dwarfs, giants and other mythical creatures).

    In 1.200 b.C. the Wotanists destroyed the holy temple of the Irminists in Goslar, Germany, and they had to build a new one at the Externsteine. Again the temple was conquered by Wotanists in 460 and finally destroyed by Charlemagne.

    Wiligut's ancestors played important roles throughout the whole history of the Irminists. The "Wiligotis", so their former name, were Ueiskunings (ice kings), which descended from the aggregation (“Vereinigung”) between the Æsir and the Vanir. They also founded the city of Vilna which once was the capital of the great Gothic empire. At least this is what Wiligut claimed…

    In 1924 Wiligut was diagnosed to be schizophrenic and was brought to the lunatic asylum in Salzburg. He was released in 1931, but stayed partial under disability. One year later he went to Germany and settled in Munich. An old friend introduced him to Himmler and finally became officer of the SS in ’33. He became the head of the Department of Pre- and Protohistory. His job was writing down his collective memories.

    In 1939 he left the SS (no one really knows why but it was probably due to mental derangement.
