Esoteric Apollo: the totem of Wolf as pseudo-praise

Apollo appears in one of his earliest known forms as Utu/Shamash in Mesopotamia. There the inspiration is crystal clear. Like Apollo and Helios, Utu is a solar God and a Charioteer. Like Apollo, Utu has a sister who becomes the consort of Semitic deities, most famously Dumuzid/Tammuz.

As this study explicates, the animal associated with Utu/Shamash, as well as his sister the Aryan Inanna/Ishtar, is the Lion. As likewise explicated in this study, the Hebrew word Ari, ארי, means “lion” and also “Aryan.” The JEM corroborates the Aryan as symbolized by the Lion with the notable and vastly important exception of Judah.

Indeed, one of the manners in which the Aryan solar deity has been demoted through the passage of time is through his association with the Wolf in lieu of the Lion. Here not only is the Aryan solar deity associated with a weaker animal, he is associated with a nocturnal animal. This phenomena is identical to the association of Aryan figures like Diana with the lunar aspect. Jewish Esotericists continue this trend today of associating the Apollonian or Aryan with the lupine. There, frequently, names that mean or reference wolf indicate a character Aryan.

Aryan characters appearing in American, Jewish authored comics bearing names that mean “wolf,” include Kid Flash, Wallace Rudolph “Wally” West, the Human Torch, Jonathan Lowell Spencer “Johnny” Storm and the Elongated Man, Randolph William “Ralph” Dibny. Indeed, the last name Dibny means “white.” This is notable because we will see a likely symbolic connection to the color “white” and wolves in this study. George R.R. Martin appears to make this association of the Aryan with Wolf in his Game Of Throne series where the House Stark is represented by the symbol of the Dire Wolf.

Yet, where this association of Aryan with wolf occurs most dramatically is in Genesis, when Jacob is blessing his children. There Jacob assigns his Aryan son Benjamin the totem of the Wolf, while awarding Judah the symbol of the Lion. This seminal moment in Myth we will refer to as the Jacobean Swap. The goal here is, clearly, to demote the Aryan, traditionally associated with the Lion, beneath the Jew. This is JEM writ large.

Indeed, the passage contains more JED than this. To wit:

“Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; In the morning he devours the prey, And in the evening he divides the plunder.” [1]

In other words, the Aryan “Wolf,” like Apollo, is understood as the founder, the hunter and the provider. The tribe of Judah, on the other hand, is understood the inheritor and beneficiary, the “Lion” to whom the plunder is proffered. Here Jacob effectively switches the birthrights of these two sons, as he himself, traded his lowly birthright for the high birthright of his firstborn, Aryan brother Esau.

With this understanding that the Aryan is the Wolf we receive great clarity to the notion of the “false prophet” who is a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Here we understand why Jesus warns against “ravening wolves” “in sheep’s clothing”[2] yet is willing to send his followers among “wolves” “like sheep” instructing them to be “wise as serpent’s” yet appearing as “doves.” [3] The answer is, simply, animal symbolism, where Jews are understood as serpents and Aryans as wolves. In other words, in a characteristically Jewish manner, the New Testament advocates Taqiya[4] for Jews and “Christians” or “serpents” but condemns Taqiya for Aryans or “wolves.”

Indeed, in Revelation 13 a “ravening” wolf in “sheep’s clothing” also appears. There a false prophet is described as a beast “having two horns, head like a lamb, body as a sheep, tail like a wolf” and “feet like a goat.” References to the Tipheret in 666, the number with which this wolf-tailed beast may be closely associated, will also corroborate him as Aryan. Our study will explicate these details.

Here it is necessary to understand that wolf was one of the notable symbols of Apollo in the ancient world. We see this in Apollonian Epithets like Apollo Lycoctonus meaning “wolf” and Apollo Lycegenes meaning “born of wolf.” This symbolism carries over to Rome. For example, that Romulus, the first and eponymous king of Rome was understood as suckled by a she-wolf, indicates, unequivocally, an Aryan beginning in Rome. Indeed, his lineage as the son of Mars and the wood spirit Rhea Silvia confirms this lineage.

However, this association between Apollo and the wolf, whether appearing esoterically in the Biblical context or explicitly in the Greek context, was doubtlessly Semitic in its original development. It’s my speculation as well that its inauguration was perhaps disguised as a kind of “honoring,” false flattery or pseudo-veneration. Here JEM is “slipped in,” disguised by “tone.” Aryans are sold on a “noble wolf.”

Given the honored place Apollo held through long periods in the Greek world it is curious indeed that the epithet was accepted at all on any scale. Then again we will see many instances were Myth appears to have been development to demote Apollo, however subtly and gradually.

Indeed, the reputation of the wolf in the ancient world particularly as they became characterized in Greece does not appear to be very high. This epithet is especially an affront to the extent it shares any connection to the two other salient figures connected to wolves in Greek Myth. These figures are Lycaon and Autolycus.

Indeed, by their names they might be considered definitive representatives of the figure of the wolf. Lycaon means “wolf” and Autolycus means “the wolf itself” or “very wolf.” Both are certainly Semitic figures. In fact, by the association of Apollo with the wolf, here we may encounter the equivalent of the Jacobean Swap yet occurring in the broader “pagan” world.

In Lycaon’s tale, Lycaon cooks and serves one of his own children to Jupiter as a test of the God’s omnipotence. Given a Consumption Motif that appears in myth, particularly in Biblical Myth, where consumption of resources appears as a metaphor for racial intermixing, possibly this appears as a metaphor for Lycaon seeking to admit his blood among the Aryan nobility. This would repeat a symbolism found with the Jewish Christ’s giving of his blood in the form of wine, for example.

Lycaon and his surviving children are turned into wolves by Jupiter as punishment for Lycaon’s trickery. The tale shares striking similarities with the deception of Jupiter by the Semitic figure of Prometheus as this study explores. In both, Jupiter is given a bad faith food offering by a Semitic figure. Lycaon was the son of Pelasgus, the eponymous ancestor of the Pelasgians whom I posit in this study to be Jews or proto-Jews, at least in their original influential form.

Autolycus, for his part, is the son of the Semitic Mercury and was a notorious thief and charlatan. In fact, the myths contrast him very deliberately with his talented stepbrother, Philammon, whom was the son of Apollo and a master musician. In any case, the reputation of the Wolf here is very clearly understood as the very opposite of that attributed to Apollo. Apollo was the God of Truth. He was the last to hide in a “wolves clothing.”

It’s possible as well that the Wolf as a symbol is a reference to racial cuckoldry against Apollo and therefore Aryans more generally. Indeed, Coronis (“crow” or “raven”), one of Apollo’s lovers, was unfaithful with him while pregnant with his son Asclepius. One of the names given for her lover is Lycus meaning “wolf.” It is perhaps indicated that this lover is the real father of Asclepius.

He was the last to hide in a “wolves clothing.”

Maybe epithets like Apollo Lycegenes or the idea of wolf or lycus associated with Apollo or Aryans becomes ultimately a play on words, especially for instance in the New Testament. Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance suggests the word lykos appearing in the New Testament, and describing a wolfish or cruel person, is akin “to the base of leukos (from the whitish hair).” Leukos means “white.”

In fact the origin of this slur of Apollo as wolf may have theoretically developed from common Apollonian epithets like Lyceus which meant “light” in the proto-Greek but came to mean wolf. The term Lyceum, meaning a hall for educational lectures and instructions, is a reference to the temple of Apollo and derives as well from these words. Indeed, we should make certain to attach the correct, original and moralizing etymology of “light” or “white” and not “wolf” to this word.

In any case it appears that the “ravenous wolf” has since ancient times been associated with gluttony, whether sexual or otherwise. In Rome, for instance, the slang word lupa appears as a term for “whore.” Lupa means “she-wolf.” It seems fair to wonder if this term developed and persisted as an esoterically rendered ethnic slur. Regardless, this connection between prostitute and wolf persisted through the Middle Ages.

In Elizabethan times the term “wolf” became associated with sexually aggressive males. Today the term “wolf” is still used to describe a womanizer. Doubtlessly it appeared first in this manner as an expression of vexation. Possibly underlying the development and appearance of this term may be the idea of an Aryan sexual competitor.

In my estimation as well, the Myth of the werewolf also developed as an esoteric slur against Aryans. By my interpretation, the Myth of the full moon triggering this metamorphosis is a reference to the Semitic Lunar power demoting the Aryan man to wolf. That he is slain only by a silver bullet, a “lunar metal,” long associated with the moon more generally, is also meaningful. As the Christian, dominated by a Semitic God, he is both demoted and made vulnerable and mortal. This understanding is corroborated by contemporary Jewish Esotericists.

For example, in the Underworld series, where a Judaized clan of Vampires battle a clan of Lycans or werewolves. There the primary female Vampire is named Selene, a clear reference to the lunar goddess Selene and the Triple Goddess more generally. Her love interest the Lycan-Vampire Hybrid is named Michael Corvin. The Angel Michael, as this study reveals, is the Jewish dominated name of Apollo in Jewish esotericism. The name Corvin means “raven,” a reference both to Apollo and racial cuckoldry committed against the Aryan as this study reveals. Likely it as a reference to Apollo’s unfaithful lover Coronis.

As a remedy to this insult “The Wolf,” I recommend the epithet Apollo Leo in addition to epithets that suggest his solar power. Here it will be clearly understood that “Leo” has no connection whatsoever to the nocturnal Zodiac symbol but only to the animal. Without putting too fine a point on it, this indicates: “Jews, actually we are the lions, as was Utu and as your Hebrew clearly admits. You will respect this now as your insults are now clearly understood.”

  1. Perhaps a more hyperborean spirit animal is in line. One from a more boreal region. Could you do an interpretation of the zodiac sign Leo? Most Europeans in ice age times worshiped bears. Even the word bear is not uttered in proto indo European for fear of summoning it. To my knowledge Lions and wolves never overlapped ranges in modern times though perhaps they did in the pre Christian middle east. Some Asian lions still exist in India and Iran a region wolves did a d do frequent. Cave lions in Europe long since extinct would have walked alongside wolves.

    1. In the Greco-Roman context which is the most important context, the bear is associated most strongly with Callisto, a nymph or mortal daughter of Lycaon. Lycaon was a werewolf who I argue is a Semitic figure.

      On the other hand, Callisto’s name meant something like “most beautiful,” which is an Aryan identifier at least in the JEM. It was possibly an epithet for the Diana an Aryan figure who was, nevertheless, Semitized through various symbolic associations, especially a lunar association. That Callisto was mortal alone suggests a lower racial pedigree than that assigned to the founding hyperborean Gods.

      The lion though has a much stronger tradition in the civilizational context and clearly developed first as an Aryan signifier than as a status signifier, indicating the noble, the Alpha or the King. It is certainly not a symbol we would want to cede to racial competitors. This association precedes from Sumer on down, which, as everywhere, saw a contest between Aryan and Semite in the civilizational context.

      The bear has a much weaker presence in civilizational iconography. This is meaningful as ultimately our goal is to control and govern civilization. On a gut level, the bear, though a likable animal, conjures a feeling of barbarism and primitivism. This doesn’t make it by itself a pejorative symbol but I don’t know if it is the appropriate symbol for a ruler. I would say the lion has a very long pedigree in this area. The Greco-Roman associations with the bear also gives me considerable pause. We’d prefer to emulate them rather than some wandering, pre-civilizational barbarian tribe.

  4. Mark your blog has sent me on a whole tangent of reading about myth. I’m curious if you’re familiar with KO Muller’s argument against interpreting Apollo as a Sun God? How did you arrive at your view that Apollo ought to be associated with the Sun? https://www.academia.edu/19010320/Apollo_in_Nineteenth-Century_Scholarship_the_case_of_Karl_Otfried_M%C3%BCller

    It’s interesting in the context of your position because he argues in favour of the same positive aspects of Apollo (order, harmony, beauty etc.) as you do, and also situates him as against the Dionysian/Bacchanalian. But for this same reason he wants to avoid associating Apollo with the Sun since this to him is nature worship which he considers Chthonic and to have its origins in Asia not Greece. Incidentally the historical reason for that, if it is true, may be the wide dispersion of Indo-Europeans across both Europe and western Asia. I just think this is an interesting take. But perhaps it’s too rationalist for the purposes of promoting REM? REM requires a bit of an emotional undercurrent to get the masses’ attention which an association with the Sun helps provide. Ultimately I think distinguishing Apollo from Dionysos and Bacchus, both of whom he has sometimes been associated with, has to be the higher priority.

    1. Apollo is identified as a sun god through multiple epithets and in multiple myths appearing in the ancient world. This aspect is so well established that even the contemporary layman today associates Apollo with the sun. I haven’t read Muller but if your presentation of him is accurate, I believe he fails to understand myth on a basic level. Sun, trees, rocks, water; all these symbols represent metaphor in myth.

  5. As you consider the wolf to be an animal of low prestige, what do you make of the fact that the Germanic peoples have a number of wolf-related names, and had a plethora much more in ancient times? Rudolf, Wolfgang, Wolfhelm, Markolf, Ludolf, Ingolf, even Werwolf, and of course Adolf, “noble wolf”, yet they did not have any lion names prior to their cultural introduction around the time of Christianization? The wolf element was actually one of the most common elements in native Germanic names. It seems odd that they would name their sons and to a lesser extent daughters after the wolf if the wolf was in such a low regard with them.

    Curiously, Verwolf exists as a Dutch surname to this day.

    And then, what about wolf names in other Indo-European cultures, including before Christianization?

    1. I responded below to your initial questions. My thoughts on bears can be found above in response to VILKAS. Set or Seth is also a Jackal headed God and is certainly a proto-Semitic figure. The Egyptian pantheon in general might be understood as heavily Semitized. These Semitic figures include Set, Osiris, Amon, Ptah and others. Ra represents an older Aryan founding element but is ultimately conjoined with other Semitic figures such as Amon and Ptah. Confusions arise because commonly Semitic figures will be seen in opposition to each other.

  7. “Do you EVEN have an answer”…no need to get emotional. Also, as if I am required to have an answer for everything. LOL.

    As it turns out I do in this case or at least some reasonable speculations. Presumably the names derive from myths and the role the wolf played in those myths which was certainly not in every case an OBVIOUSLY pejorative role. Apollo for instance is associated with the Wolf, Benjamin is associated with Wolf, yet neither of these associations is OBVIOUSLY pejorative. This would be a reasonable guess.

    Though it is certainly possible these Aryans had an earlier prehistorical affinity or admiration for the wolf that survived in names for instance. Certainly. This does nothing to change the esoteric meaning that the wolf would assume in Norse, Biblical and Greco-Roman myths for example.

    Let’s assume the names arrive from myths where the wolf is understood, ESOTERICALLY, as a pejorative figure. You ask why would Germanic peoples adopt names that are actually, in their origin, esoteric demotions? The answer of course is ignorance of actually myth meaning. It’s nothing they can be blamed or defamed for. It might even be a compliment to their trustfulness and trustworthiness. Consider: for well more than 1000 years our ancestors referred to themselves as Christians. An analysis of this myth reveals that this is, ultimately, a humiliating insult developed against them.

    Other than that you’ve developed some common strawmen that appear in criticisms of my work. I answer these in the article below. In your case you should scroll to ““THE 100% UBIQUITY OF JEM” STRAW-MAN,” possibly “THE EMOTIONALIZED CHRISTIAN AND PAGAN SOURCE OF CRITICISM” applies as well. But we’ll see.

    What do you make of the story of Joseph, son of Rachel and Jacob? Joseph was sold off by his ten older half brothers in to slavery, who I believe are Semitic, eventually winding up in Egypt. Joseph and his younger Benjamin I believe represent Aryans.

    His brother’s brought back his clothes covered in I think goat’s blood, tricking his father that he had been attacked by a lion or some kind of wild beast like that.
