- IT ALL GREW FROM A NEARBY TREE
- May 17th, 22:51
According to Ancient Norwegian mythology, the world isn't flat nor is it round. The world simply grew from a tree branch. Ancient Norwegian mythology pretty much stated that everything, the universe and the afterlife and everything else in between grew from an old ash tree called Yggdrasil. And growing from the branches of the old ash tree Yggdrasil are nine worlds (or plains of reality).
The first plane of reality is Midgard aka Miðgarðr---That's where humans live.
The second plane of reality is Asgard aka Ásgarðr---That's where the GODS and dieties live. It's the primary plane of reality that all the important dieties reside.
The third plane of reality is Vanaheimr---That's were the lessor secondary GODS related to future prediction, fertility and wisdom reside.
The fourth plane of reality is Jötunheimr---That's where the frost giants, rock giants and other giants reside.
The fifth plane of reality is Álfheim---That's where the elves reside.
The sixth plane of reality is Hel---That's where all the corpses, both good and evil, reside. In other words, the sixth plane of reality is the afterlife.
The seventh plane of reality is svartálfar---That's where all the dwarfs live.
The eighth plane of reality is Niflheim (or Niflheimr)---That's a mostly empty plane of reality that's covered with ice. Sometimes people living in the sixth plane of reality called Hel would rent out space, but it's mostly empty and never used by anybody or anything.
The ninth plane of reality is Muspelheim---That's a mostly empty plane of reality that's covered only with fire. The Sons of Muspel and plotting to wreck the ice bridges of the eighth plane of reality in their quest to destroy worlds might be living here, but it's mostly empty aside from those group of individuals.
Oh yeah, today is Norway Constitution Day (Norway gained independence today on May 17, 1814).
