MITOLOGIA NORDICA

Creazione dell'uomo

Gli Asi erano molto compiaciuti del mondo che avevano creato.

Tuttaviaa sentivano che ancora mancava qualcosa perché questo meraviglioso mondo sfiorasse la perfezione:

l’uomo

Fu così che un giorno i tre dei, errando sulla riva del mare, notarono in due alberi, un frassino e un ontano, quelli che potevano essere i tratti dell’essere umano.

Ma erano solo tronchi senz’anima, movenze e pensieri.

I tre dei decisero quindi di soffiare la vita all’interno degli alberi,

Odino donò l’anima, Hoenir la volontà di muoversi e pensare e Lodur il sangue e i sentimenti. Lentamente il frassino e l’ontano mutarono forma trasformandosi in un uomo e in una donna.

Ma cos’è un uomo nudo e senza nome?

Non era così che gli Asi avevano pensato all’essere umano, quindi consegnarono i loro mantelli alla coppia per potersi coprire e li chiamarono Ask (l’uomo) e Embla (la donna).

Gli Asi assegnarono loro Midgard come dimora e pensarono anche a proteggerli dalle scorrerie degli jotun, costruendo una recinzione con le sopracciglia di Ymir.

In cima alla montagna più alta i tre dei costruirono la propria casa e con uno scintillante arcobaleno collegarono la terra e Asgard, la loro dimora.

Dopo un po’ di tempo nacquero i primi figli di Ask ed Embra, ed in verità non erano proprio gradevoli da vedersi con la pelle come ruvida corteccia e gli occhi sempre vuoti e tristi.

In quanto all’ educazione pareva che non la conoscessero proprio.Vivevano in spoglie capanne e si nutrivano di piante selvatiche.

Fortunatamente i loro nipoti migliorarono sotto ogni aspetto. Impararono a coltivare la terra, costruendosi delle case e diventando ottimi navigatori, ma ancora più raffinati erano i loro bis-nipoti.

Di bell’ aspetto passavano il loro tempo oziando in maestosi palazzi, vestiti di fini tessuti, si cibavano di carne arrosto e sorbivano l’idromele da corni finemente intarsiati

Erano di buone maniere perché Odino stesso aveva insegnato loro la buona educazione. Travestendosi da vecchio viandante, bussava alle porte e seduto innanzi al focolare condivideva la sua saggezza con gli esseri umani.

Gli uomini erano grati agli dei per i doni ricevuti e allo stesso modo gli Asi amavano il genere umano e lo proteggevano dagli jotun.

La vita di ogni essere veniva scritta nel momento in cui nasceva. Erano le Norne, le tre Fate del Destino a deciderlo; Urd, Verande e Skuld. Incidevano su tavolette le rune, i caratteri sacri, disponevano per ogni nato una vita piena di fortuna o sventura, breve o lunga.

La prima scriveva il passato, la seconda il presente, la terza il futuro e filavano il destino degli uomini: se il filo di Skuld si spezzava, era segno di morte.

A nessuno era dato sapere da dove provenissero le Norne e anche gli Asi si dovevano sottomettere alle loro volontà, gli stessi dei infatti non erano immortali.

Anche loro prima o poi dovevano morire, come chiunque e qualunque cosa.

Presso la fonte di Urdarbrunnr, vivono le Norme, che tessono il filo del destino dei mortali:
Da quel luogo vengono donne, di molto sagge,
tre, da quello spazio che sotto l’albero s’estende;
ha nome Urdhr l’una, Verdhandi l’altra
– sopra una tavola incisero rune – Skuld quella ch’è terza;
queste decisero il destino, queste scelsero la vita,
per i viventi nati, le sorti degli uomini.

It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an extremely long latency interval, which means that warning signs of the disease won’t emerge until 30 to 50 years after the preliminary exposure to asbestos.

I would like to write my opinion that the expense of car insurance will vary from one coverage to another, due to the fact there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost.
