There are also chthonic deities, those of the Underworld, but the celestial ones set the tone.
We are not gods. This is one of the articles of the Indo-European faith.
We are related to them, made from similar stuff, and even able to interbreed with them. But they are a different kind of being, as different from us as we are from the animals.
We are ontologically different. The gods are beings who are powerful, holy, and good. They are not archetypes, and in no way are mere projections of psychological reality. They certainly correspond to archetypes.
This should be no surprise; one of the ways in which psychologists determined archetypes was by investigating myths. More important, the gods we know are those who are relevant to us. There may well be other gods, but the ones we worship are the ones suitable for us.

He has more concerns than each of us, and more wisdom to understand what is necessary. Each is part of the working of the universe, and each fulfills their part to perfection.
That is what makes them gods. They are both what the gods are. There is thus nothing above the gods except for other gods. There is something within them and behind them.
Judging from the descendant traditions, the Proto-Indo-Europeans must have worshiped a large number of deities, and honored a number of lesser divine beings as well.
