Brief quote.

“Indra is ‘apprehended by the understanding, and appreciated by the wise,’ i.e. in his essence and very self, he is not cognizable by the senses, but is perceptible by the intellect only. He is therefore neither the firmament, nor an orb or luminary, nor any phenomenon of visible appearance, and must of necessity be something that is existent in the Universal Fire, emanating from it, and then by itself acting outwardly and visibly.”

–Albert Pike, from Indo-Aryan Deities and Worship as Contained in the Rig-Veda, 1872.
