Indeed! To each their own.
This will be the only point of agreement we'll ever reach. Thankfully!

Im a simple human, if someone comes to lay down weak blobs of nihilism repeatedly in a shrine Im building I begin to detest that person. Such a fucking cunt. Now I hope he'll fuck off; In the end all trolls give up.

Funking internets.

Huginn and Muninn, his ravens. Odin was once asked which of the two he would sooner sacrifice, and after long thought, he decided that to be without Muninn would be even worse than to be without Huginn.
Mostly, Huginn is known as Mind, and Muninn as Memory. The latter meaning is however somewhat indefinite, and speculation exists.

I think Memory is essentially correct, in the very deepest of its meanings. The Soul. My feeling is that Muninn is the Soul.
So Odin is asked: which would you rather lose, your mind or your soul?

And not like clockwork.


If God doesn't play dice, that basically means he loses. Gets excluded from the corner, entirely.

Muspelheim is described as a hot and glowing land of fire, home to the fire giants, and guarded by Surtr, with his flaming sword.

It is featured in both the creation and destruction stories of Norse myth. According to the Prose Edda, a great time before the earth was made, Niflheim existed. Inside Niflheim was a well called Hvergelmer, from this well flowed numerous streams known as the Elivog. Their names were Svol, Gunnthro, Form, Finbul, Thul, Slid and Hrid, Sylg and Ylg, Vid, Leipt and Gjoll. After a time these streams had traveled far from their source at Niflheim. So far that the venom that flowed within them hardened and turned to ice. When this ice eventually settled, rain rose up from it, and froze into rime. This ice then began to layer itself over the primordial void, Ginnungagap. This made the northern portion of Ginungagap thick with ice, and storms begin to form within. However, in the southern region of Ginungagap glowing sparks were flying out of Muspelheim. When the heat and sparks from Muspelheim met the ice, it began to melt. These sparks would go on to create the Sun, Moon, and stars, and the drops would form the primeval being Ymir: "by the might of him who sent the heat, the drops quickened into life and took the likeness of a man, who got the name Ymer. But the Frost giants call him Aurgelmer".

In the midst of this clash and din the heavens are rent in twain,
and the sons of Muspell come riding through the opening.
Surtr rides first, and before him and after him flames burning fire.
He has a very good sword, which shines brighter than the sun.
As they ride over Bifrost it breaks to pieces, as has before been stated.
The sons of Muspel direct their course to the plain which is called Vigrid....
The sons of Muspel have there effulgent bands alone by themselves.

The Prose Edda, Gylfaginning

Image

Old Norse:

Sutr ferr sunnan
með sviga lævi:
skinn af sverði
sól valtiva.

English:

Surtr moves from the south
with the scathe of branches:
there shines from his sword
the sun of Gods of the Slain.

Metal Gaia:
    Na Moey Zemle” A Folk Metal Journey Across Pagan Lands

    Arkona’s Na Moey Zemle translates into “My Land”

    In this song, a man leaves his home in Russia in search of happiness. He travels through Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany, and the Netherlands in that order. Yet in his journey he learns that true happiness is back at home where he belongs.

    A surprising number of guest vocalists have contributed to this Arkona ballad. We have the vocalists from Heidevolk, Menhir, Månegarm, Obtest, and Skyforger participating in this song.



      * Nerthus: Germanic Earth-goddess
      * Svitjod: An Old Norse name for Sweden or its people
      * Sunna: Germanic Sun-goddess
      * Veles: a major Slavic god
      * The One-Eyed: Odin, the chief Norse god
      * Žemyna: Lithuanian earth-goddess
      * Velinas: Lithuanian creator-god, represented as a blacksmith
      * Ąžuoliniai mounds: earth mounds in the village of Ąžuoliniai
      * Thuringia: a German state, renowned for its natural beauty.

Lord Odin
Allfather
All-warrer
streak the sky with blood
Give a pink sunrise

Ha! Lord I know words fail
and so fail I will!
Bridge to Asgard, ASGARD!

Asgard.

Words fail.

Odin, birds here revere you
or are they you?
Are you in all trees, not merely their sap but also the birds in their crowns?

Are you not in the beasts as you are in the Noblemen

Odin, blessing of blessings,
eternally my axe laughs

Lightning,
good rain, good excellent rain
Wolf, raw prey-meat, eye contact, prey and predator
secret joy, short joy

Let us take Rome again.
The strong act as they may, the weak accept what they must.

Before societies got more warlike, the cults of the moon calendars ruled agricultural Europe from the Mediterranean to the Iberic North, to the northern lands for a hundred centuries; much of that did not survive the age of Aries, the contest of arms which led to the dominion of the city states and their ironclad logics of common living which we call politics, after the polis; Plato as the culmination of the city as an ethics, Rome as the actual fact of it. The supreme discipline in which the city had its foundation then allowed for dispersion of the human spirit; speculation - and becoming etheric; mysticism and the age of Pisces reached into the void of power, somehow resulting in the retrieval of discipline on a higher arc as science, the ultimate detachment; - now in the outset of the age of Aquarius the we suddenly look back as far as the end of the age of Leo; the origins of the Moon cults.

I dont know if someone said it, Id like this to be a quote and not my own statement, ill put it in quotation marks anyway: "power is duty".
