“The life of a race … is not a philosophically logical development, nor even a process which unfolds in terms of natural law. It is the formation of a mystical synthesis, of an activity of the soul, which cannot be explained by rational deduction nor made intelligible through analyses of cause and effect. Comprehending the inner heart of a culture consists therefore in elucidating its highest religious, moral, philosophic, scientific, and aesthetic values. These determine its total rhythm and, simultaneously, qualify the reciprocal relationship and arrangements of human powers.” – Alfred Rosenberg
Two possible mechanisms, neither of which excludes the other, could account for how, over an interval of merely several thousand years, Neolithic-era crops (especially cereals) came to be spread far and wide around the globe from the locations where archaeology suggests such crops were first cultivated. These mechanisms are demic dispersal (ie. migration of the original farming populations) and cultural dispersal (ie. prior non-farming populations adopting farming via contact with the farming populations), where “cultural” here refers literally to cultivation of crops. Whoever believes that both mechanisms occurred in conjunction, and hence that the gene pools of all historical civilizations contain a mix of older traits selected for in the pre-Neolithic lifestyle and newer Aryan (literally, “soil tiller”) traits permitted by the Neolithic lifestyle, is already a believer of Aryan diffusion in the broadest sense.
“If we subject the different peoples to a strict test from this standpoint we shall find that scarcely any one of them has originally created a culture, but almost all have been merely the recipients of a culture created elsewhere.” – Adolf Hitler
One can believe in Aryan diffusion without being an Aryanist or a National Socialist if one would prefer society to be guided by the older traits. Aryanists are defined by our preference for society to be guided by the newer traits, and National Socialists are defined moreover by our overarching political objective to demographically phase out the older traits through state control of reproduction. One can be an Aryanist and a National Socialist without believing in Aryan diffusion, so long as one agrees with our comparative valuation of Aryan vs non-Aryan traits (while disagreeing on their evolutionary origin). On the other hand, all who abuse the word “Aryan” by flouting its etymological meaning are not Aryanists and not authentic National Socialists.
“Whether Hindus or Greeks, Egyptians or Japanese, Chinese, Sumerians, or ancient Americans, — or even Romans … they all placed the “Golden Age,” the “Age of Truth,” the rule of Kronos or of Ra, or of any other Gods on earth … far behind them in the past.” – Savitri Devi
Archaeologists have long been confounded by the apparent contradiction between on one hand fossil evidence reflecting an extremely brutal lifestyle of prehistoric man, and on the other hand the Golden Age myths common to ancient lore around the world that depict an idyllic, sunlit world of peace and calm that only subsequently degenerated to violence. But it would be no contradiction at all if the latter are myths from the Aryan perspective – a perspective of people born and raised on secluded farmland, who initially knew nothing of the outside world until they had migrated far enough afield to encounter barbarism. In particular, the oft-dismissed Golden Age mythic claim of non-violent cohabitation even between animals has indeed never been the case in the wild (where predation is constant), but could well have been a true description of the ploughing, manuring, threshing and various other helper animals on a Neolithic subsistence farm.
Add the enigma of the swastika turning up in otherwise unrelated Neolithic farm sites all across the planet, and the case for Aryan diffusion grows. It could even account for why it is consistently the more advanced-looking individuals, and not the more archaic-looking individuals, who most frequently resemble each other physically across ethnic lines.
“If Jung could believe, at times, that Hitlerism only represented a national religion of Germany, he deluded himself, since his “religion” is of a universal character. It has all the mythic and archetypal ingredients for it, as we shall come to understand.” – Miguel Serrano
More importantly, it informs us why our attempt throughout history to promote noble ideas has been a long story of consistent dismal failure despite the champions of such ideas being among the most heroic individuals the world has ever seen. It informs us why these champions have variously won spectacular philosophical battles, political battles and military battles during their own lifetimes, but all – without exception – lost the culture war in the long-term. Through this, it informs us what we must do differently if we are to win the culture war in the future.
“In the immemorial past an outside influence and an outside culture brought into existence the Japanese culture of that day. This opinion is very strongly supported by the fact that the ancient civilization of Japan actually became fossilized and petrified. Such a process of senility can happen only if a people loses the racial cell which originally had been creative or if the outside influence should be withdrawn after having awakened and maintained the first cultural developments in that region.” – Adolf Hitler
To understand the process pattern of Aryan diffusion, Japan is a good place to start, for the straightforward reason that it went through this process recently enough that it is almost the only case in the world where human fossils indisputably illustrate a racial correspondence to the sudden and rapid transition towards a farming lifestyle from an older hunting-gathering lifestyle. It is impossible for anyone with any aesthetic acumen to look at the following two pottery portfolios and believe that they are products of the same blood:
No Aryan blood signature detected.
Aryan blood signature detected!
Pottery in prehistoric Japan never deviated from the former style for more than six thousand years, then all of a sudden – in exact conjunction with the arrival of rice and millet in Kyushu and southern Honshu - it changed to the latter style, as simultaneously did clothing and other material styles. Such change in collective tastes cannot be plausibly accounted for via mere acquisition of new technical knowledge by the same inhabitants, but indicates an infusion of new genetic content of wholly different character.
Long before such material clues were available, Hitler on sheer intuition spoke of “two Japans” racially. Ainu lore likewise speaks of the ancestors of the Ainu as having inhabited the islands of Japan for tens of thousands of years prior to the arrival of the “Children of the Sun”. Research from the 1980s onwards has since verified the Jomon-Yayoi hybrid ancestry of the historical Japanese people. Whereas skeletons of the Jomon period are exclusively of Jomon (ie. Gentile) type, skeletons of the Yayoi period include a new Yayoi (ie. Aryan) type appearing alongside the Jomon type, and by the Kofun period, mixed types are seen to predominate over the original types. Further admixture then occurred with the later waves of immigrants (“Toraijin”) from Korea and north China, at which point physical anthropology is scrambled as it becomes impossible to be sure what came from where.
Which skull looks more Aryan?
For most of pre-modern Japanese history, the aesthetic ideal of human beauty was based on the Yayoi type. But following Westernization, the Jomon type has become more popular.
Yayoi have longer limbs than Jomon matched for spine length, along with more gracile bones, lower muscle mass, less body hair (including facial hair) and lower sexual dimorphism.
DNA tests indicate shared genetics between the Yayoi and the Wuyue of the Yangtze delta, which corroborates early Yayoi claims of descent from King Taibo of Wu. As a matter of trivia, the proper name of Japanese classical dress (known in English as “kimono”) is “go-fuku” (meaning “Go clothes”), and the oldest Japanese pronounciation system for Chinese script is called “go-on” (meaning “Go sound”), where ”Go” is cognate with ”Wu”. (More will be said about the Wuyue in the next page.)

The earliest known unifying ruler of the Yayoi was Queen Himiko (meaning “Sun Maiden”) of Yamatai, a southwestern city-state whose precise location remains uncertain (possibilities include Kyushu and southern Honshu). The Iron Age infrastructure that she rapidly implemented across her land, while in reality procured from trade with China, was viewed by the nearby Jomon as evidence of godly powers. In conjunction with the sun-worship of the Yayoi, this inadvertently began the formation of the mythical Amaterasu in the common mind.
Later, as the Yayoi disappeared, Amaterasu was gradually demoted to merely an emanation from Izanagi’s left eye, alongside Tsukuyomi from Izanagi’s right eye.
External link: Who Was Queen Himiko?
Himiko never married and left no direct descendants, so her death immediately triggered civil war which was only pacified by placing a young female relative on the throne to replace her in her role. In this way, Himiko the individual was superseded in importance by the role that she had unwittingly created, thus fully opening the door for the sun goddess reinterpretation. Hence comes the myth of Amaterasu’s disappearance that abruptly cast the world into darkness, and her subsequent re-emergence to illuminate the world again and enable daily life to return to normal.
“Few people really understand archetypes. They are living – they are born, they flourish, and they die. They are not an ‘intellectual abstraction’ for people to pretend to understand and try to use. Neither are they mystical in the sense of being ‘incomprehensible’.” – David Myatt
With this awareness, decoding the rest of the founding myths of Japan as a narrative of Aryan diffusion becomes straightforward. Ninigi, sent by Amaterasu from heaven down to earth to grow rice and bring peace to the land, could represent Himiko’s younger brother (the general of the Yamatai army) or a descendant of his or some other Yamatai aristocrat, but nevertheless with a mission to establish Yayoi culture throughout Japan. Ninigi’s marriage to the indigenous Konohana then represents the mixing of Yayoi blood with Jomon blood, and Ninigi’s worry that Konohana’s sons might not be his own reflects the subsequent Yayoi anxiety regarding the effects that Jomon blood might have on Yayoi culture. Indeed, exactly as we would expect, Hoderi became a fisher and Hoori became a (land) hunter, having acquired from Ninigi a magic hook and a magic bow respectively. The Hoderi vs Hoori conflict that occupies the remainder of the story is a long-winded fishing vs hunting dichotomy which is of no relevance to us, except to remark that the mission to assimilate the Jomon to an Aryan way of life had failed, and that instead the racially mixed population were merely using the more advanced Yayoi craftsmanship to empower their old Gentile habits.
The ”peace” logogram is composed of “cereal” and “mouth” logograms. The idea is that if everyone eats cereal, there would be peace. (If only it were that simple…..)
Historically, the expansion of farming across Honshu led to the emergence of two rival political camps: the Yamato, consisting of those who self-identified as descendants of Amaterasu (though having already forgotten the original Yayoi culture, which had been replaced with Confucianism in order to deal with massive population increase and urbanization), and the Emishi, consisting of those who self-identified with Jomon heritage (despite having adopted farming for its economic benefits). Historians of the time consistently describe the Emishi as “hairy people”, corroborating their speculated more heavily Jomon ancestry. It took centuries - culminating in the war between the Yamato champion Tamuramaro of Sakanoue (who himself, ironically enough, claimed descent not from the original Yamatai aristocracy but instead from Liu Bang (see next page)) and the Emishi champion Aterui of Isawa – for the Yamato to drive the most hostile Emishi to Ezo where they maintained their Satsumon culture, while the remaining Emishi were incorporated into an increasingly compromised Yamato culture.
In reality, it’s about Aryan blood, not cereal.
Buddhism had also arrived by then, but despite its inspirational value – especially of the Zen schools – to compatible individuals on one hand and its partial incorporation into governmental bureaucracy on the other, was able to create only a superficial impact across society as a whole due to the paucity of Aryan blood remaining (e.g. anti-hunting/fishing laws based on Buddhist universalist ethics were officially passed but were barely enforced in practice), and the ground it momentarily gained was gradually re-lost to Confucianism over time. Isolated fragments of Aryan blood memory leading to such as taboo towards eating beef persisted until late, but were ultimately swept away.
The swastika was brought to Japan not by the original Yayoi settlers but by later-era Buddhist missionaries, and remains primarily associated with Buddhism in local use. Nevertheless, it was Yamatai diplomatic initiative that established the sea route via which the Buddhist missions were subsequently able to arrive.
However, one mystery remains. The Jomon never domesticated horses, yet the Emishi were renowned riders and horseback archers specializing in terror raids. All records agree that the original Yayoi military consisted solely of sword/spear infantry, and the Yamato military only later learned cavalry from friendly Emishi groups, which precludes any possibility of the Emishi having learned cavalry from the Yayoi. So how did the Emishi possess such skills? One theory is that a small number of Turanians arrived in north Japan shortly after the Aryan arrival in south Japan, and that the Emishi were displaying a Turanian influence. (Emishi bows were also symmetrical like typical Jomon and Turanian bows, and unlike the unique asymmetrical longbow eventually developed by the Yayoi as a countermeasure.) While most theorists believe that any Turanians in Japan must have been Mongols or Tungusics, and they are probably correct, some believe that hidden among them might have been our worst enemies.

“The name Turanian is used in opposition to Aryan, and is applied to the nomadic races of Asia as opposed to the agricultural or Aryan races.” – Max Mueller
The case of Japan showcases the same general pattern that repeats itself elsewhere, but it must be remembered that this case is atypical in a number of ways. Firstly, Jomon pottery and Yayoi pottery could be compared because the Jomon were producing large quantities of pottery even before they had farming; most Gentiles elsewhere had no large-scale pottery industry at all prior to farming. Secondly, the Yayoi already had Bronze Age technology when they settled in Japan; Aryans elsewhere were mostly using Stone Age technology when they settled. Thirdly, skeletal and DNA clues here are relatively clear-cut; skeletal and DNA clues elsewhere are far more ambiguous, as mixing occurred so much longer ago, with mixed groups undergoing migrations of their own and mixing with other mixed groups. Fourthly, here we had the luxury of written history to help us decipher the meaning of the myths; elsewhere the early myths refer largely to times that predate writing, and must therefore be deciphered based on much fewer scattered hints from a much more distant past. Lastly, Japan’s narrow geographical shape means that rivers were relatively unimportant in relation to migration routes; elsewhere we will find that rivers play a major role in migration patterns.
The struggle for dominance between the two racial souls in Japan has never ceased, but has been continuously expressed through the contrasting extremes of its art, culture and society as a whole. One racial soul motivates towards complexity, the other towards simplicity; one towards formality, the other towards essentiality; one towards tradition, the other towards romanticism. Which racial soul Japan ultimately chooses will determine whether it will cease to deserve its name, or whether we will show the world what it really means to be descended from the sun.
