Askur and Embla

Askur and Embla- We are man-trees with roots in That

How did we get the idea to be born here – as humans?

Note that “man” means man and woman, men and women. (Man as male-man is later-time ambiguity;

Know that “Norsemen” also covers both genders of man.

Our gods Óður Hænir Lóður bring human life to the man-trees on the beach. Askur and Embla come from the unfathomable Ægir, the Womb of the Universe.

(Ægir in myths is not the ocean
but the abyss of consciousness)

We are rooted in this Total Knowledge.

Askur and askur yggdrasils, no mere coincidence, but all about our roots in That. From here we get nourishment in life.

Living in the relative/ creation /physical world, we enjoy water from svalar unnir (the cooling waves).
