We now examine the phenomenon of the Amazon woman as she was long before the feminine warrior nations known to the Greeks and Hindus.
As we have seen in our previous Knowledge Lecture the Term “amazon woman” is really a contradiction in terms. The a-mazei, or Amazons, were in fact those maidens who had not become the feminine counterpart of the mascûli. So by definition they were not women.
They were maidens of the two feminine sexes, chelan and melin, not one half of the duality man/woman.
This, of course answers the question (to which various fanciful answers were advanced by the Athenians and others) of how the Amazons reproduced without recourse to mascûli.
We shall move on to the much later period of Amazon history chronicled inadequately by Greek writers in our next lecture.
For the moment we shall continue our brief world history timeline as it relates to the misnamed “Amazon woman” – actually the decreasing minority of the human race that remained in its original intemorphic form as opposed to the schizomorphic (male/female) nature taken on by the increasing majority.
The mascûli were, as their name implies, an embodiment of the masculine principle that is to say, of a combination between the tamasic force of increasing consolidation and materialization that continues throughout the Cycle of Ages in any world and a very extreme form of the influence of Sai Vihkë, the Angel of combat and discord, whose influence, in a masculinized (and therefore deeply unbalanced) form was known as the “god” Mars or Ares.
This combination of material “weight” and unbalanced vikhelism led increasingly toward two things: on the one hand war, torture and cruelty and on the other an increasing descent into “materialism”. However neither of these effects were immediate because for a long time the femini (the real women) remained in control of this new creature.
Even in relatively recent periods (as little as 9,000 years ago) we see that throughout the world all statuary is either wholly feminine or indicates the strong predominance of the feminine, both by its far greater frequency and by the clearly subordinate position of male images when they do appear.
Only slowly did the mascûli rise first to equality and finally to total dominance, bringing with them a new kind of world history – one in which blood and conflict would henceforward decide all the great issues.
In the long period before this (far longer than the whole of patriarchal history) the Amazons lived in peace with the femini, even though their ways differed greatly. The schizomorphic peoples increased and the intemorphs, or Amazons decreased, for the psychic tide of Tellurian history was now running strongly in favor of the schizomorphic (and eventually mascûlic) principle.
The Amazons were not at first a warrior people. Indeed, there were no warrior peoples at this time. As archeology clearly shows, such things as fortifications and weapons of war were introduced only after the mascûli became dominant in the schizomorphic world.
Even after this they were not primarily a warrior people, although combat had become necessary to ensure their survival. Their wars were a very small part of their history. But, of course, they were the only part known to their patriarchal enemies, who were sworn to destroy the “Amazon woman”.
