Background

A description of the experience

The Poetic Edda

I know that an ash tree stands called Yggdrasil,
a high tree, soaked with shining loam,
from there come the dews which fall in the valley,
ever green, it stands over the well of fate

…...........

Three roots there grow in three directions
under the ash of Yggdrasil
Hel lives under one, under the second, the frost-giants
the third, human kind
