The list contains occasional essays about ancient ideas. They are usually published together with new and updated files even at oldworld_ideas-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

Some sees my research as alternative ideas, others as New Age, but I cannot see that I should repeat the mistakes of the former generations. For me they are pure analysis. What point is in telling what others have told before? Why let the Romans define our culture? … and so on. I am still the boy wondering "Why do people do that?"

Here I list some essays about certain questions

Early times

NEW …Misunderstanding the Actic … the Jesuits in studied the Aborigines everywhere. In Sweden the mostly the 17th century priests made the investigations. They did not know the culture and they did not know the language. The documentation is mostly their private vision about the primitive natives. My prime objections are about shaman and magic drum and the use of words like troll and spirit and seeing the supernatural I can not see as reality but fiction. The academic traditions conserve such rubbish views. The Samic drum mirrors the old Scandinavian World Order and that does not include troll.

NEW …CRITIC shaman, noide, magic drum … Swedish Church expanded to north in 1641 and soon the priests began to give their version of interpreting drums.
