Description

Our daily life is organised by 'information' world-wide. A continuously increasing flow of "information" leading to a more and more consolidated social and political order. "Information" is brought to us not only through the so-called print and electronic media, but also by our environment, by the family, by educational institutions, etc, extensively. But, where does information come from, where is it produced, who puts it into circulation, what are the channels, how fast does it reach us from its source? Can we really find out? Is it important to know all the facts?

These are the reasons, these are the background that made our search for answers to our rather harmless questions so difficult, so complicated: who the ‘‘Aryans’’ are the ‘‘Indogermans’’ and the ‘‘Indoeuropeans’’? Who they are, since when has their existence been known, how has it become known that they existed, who discovered them, and how, why and for what purpose? But we have made progress in our search. With the help of our unusual questions. And as it seems, we have banged on the Pandora’s box and it is open now.
