Kvasir –  blood is a flow in myths: the mead, mjöðurinn.
Gunnlöð in Hnitbjörg   –  löð actually means hospitality, verb laða to lure, attract.

 Hnitbjörg is our innermost cave. We should explore it. That we do by transcending.

To begin with we do not see details clearly in here, but gradually our vision recovers from its blindness.
Here we imbibe the precious mead of wisdommjöðurinn dýri. madhú मधु

We are welcomed by a þurs-maiden who, actually, is not supposed to show hospitality, rather expected by her father the þurs Suttungur, to hide the mead away from us.
But alas! A Norse myth. Who can control a female power here in the Northern heritage?
Þursar are old, now gone-by, states of evolution; their daughters take over. Our next step.

This is Óðinn Bölverkur as an eagle, too heavy to fly – when he has imbibed all the mjöður (mead of wisdom) in Hnitbjörg of Gunnlöð –  and this is what we do all the time when we have learned to nýsa niður to gain the pure wisdom inside.
The name Bölverkur has Sanskrit bhid as a word-stem, which means to pierce, split asunder, make holes, make porous.
