1. Let There be Darkness: The Reign of the Swastika by Lewis M. Greenberg [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon V:2 (Apr 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Let There be Darkness: The Reign of the Swastika by Lewis M. Greenberg (KRONOS Press, Wynnewood, PA., 1997) Reviewed by Ken Moss Lewis Greenberg has written a most interesting account of the origins of the swastika and how this ancient symbol was used and later abused by Adolf Hitler.

The word also means "fire-drill". (1) According to Robert Graves, it is this Sanskrit word that lies behind the name of the Greek Prometheus. In Greek, "Prometheus" means "forethought" but, according to Graves, the name may really have originated "in a Greek misunderstanding of the Sanskrit word pramantha, the swastika, or fire-drill, which he had supposedly invented, since Zeus Prometheus at Thurii was shown holding a fire-drill". (2) Arthur Cook, on the other hand, is of the opinion that, "strictly speaking," the name Prometheus cannot be regarded "as the phonetic equivalent of pramantha", and adds that "it is only by invoking the uncertain aid of popular etymology that we are enabled to set the two side by side". (3 ...

... of pictures, particularly while so much of the earlier symbolism remains to be presented at a sufficient level of detail. It is the earlier images that give the necessary context to comprehend the later evolution of the configuration. The brief comments here are for those familiar with the basic planetary forms of the polar configuration. The general motif involves these common elements, among others: 1) meandering, "drunken" or "crane "-dance of the hero; 2) winding path of the maze or labyrinth; 3) the cross or swastika, the central celestial source from which the sinuous "paths" arose; 4) "bowels" of the cavern entered by the hero; 5) swallowing of the hero by the chaos monster; 6) disheveled and "entangling" hair of the mother goddess in her threatening aspect; 7) winding or unwinding of intestines; 8) intricate windings of a rope or thread, or an elaborate "knot" which only the hero can undo; and 9) a "riddle" or "paradox" which only ...
