THE GREATEST GOD
course our ancestors have noticed that the stars are revolving.
That is, except from the point in the heaven where no movement seems to take place.
The seemingly rotating figure on the northern hemisphere symbolizes the
Greatest male deity in the Mythological Story from all over the World.
This figure symbolizes for instants Chronos, Zeus, Odin, Saturn (not the
planet) and several other names.
On of the
most important holy figure for our ancestors was that of the white Milky Way,
especially when symbolized as the great white God or spirit in the sky.
Ancestors all over the World have had their story of creation connected to
this white God-figure in the sky.
But the figure are
also symbolized with several other phenomenon's, of which the Heavenly
Ship and a White Horse or Bull are the most common.
"ODIN HANGING IN THE TREE"
Why is it that such a mythical telling can occur in the
first hand? From which mytho-cosmological observation can
this telling derive?
If the World Tree resembles the Earth
celestial axis, (and the Earth magnetic field as well) one
must conclude that some kind of celestial imagery depicts
such a story.
The Norse Worlds have Midgaard as the
home of the humans, the Earth and Asgaard belongs to the
celestial day- and nighttime realms with the Sun at day and
Moon; the wandering stars = planets; stars and star
constellations at nighttime. Lastly the Norse Udgaard
belongs to the Giants and first creators in the Norse story
of creation, which specifically is connected to the Milky
Way whitish contours.
On the northern hemisphere a great
male-like Milky Way figure (Odin) can be observed at night
on a favorable season. This figure seemingly revolves around
the Earth celestial pole = the World Tree, and it is said in
the myth that "Odin is hanging in the Tree" for "nine days
When interpreting such a myth, it is
of course very important to recognize which mythical
figure/archetype belongs to which cosmological observation
and when not having discovered the connection, all kind of
false interpretations and distorted explanations can occur.
"Odin hanging on a tree" shall be
"Odin hanging besides the tree" which resembles the Earth
celestial pole. And "Odin hanging for nine days and nights"
should be "being observed besides and connected to the Tree
in about 9 month of the year" simply because this Milky Way
figure cannot be observed in the lightest season of the
year, a mytho-cosmological fact which also is described with
the myth of "the deity in the Sky who disappears and the
promise of his return".
OK, there he is: Odin hanging in the
northern hemisphere night Sky, seemingly revolving around
the celestial pole, thus being omnipresent and omnipotent
and overlooking the whole Midgaard and the humans below. A
male figure all made in the human imagination and still a
part of the creation of humans because we all are made in
the imageries of the deities above and below.

The Set God:
In art, Set was mostly depicted as a mysterious and
unknown creature, referred to by Egyptologists as the Set animal or
Typhonic beast, with a curved snout, square ears, forked tail, and
canine body, or sometimes as a human with only the head of the Set
animal. It has no complete resemblance to any known creature, although
it does resemble a composite of an aardvark, a donkey, and a jackal, all
of which are desert creatures. The main species of aardvark present in
ancient Egypt additionally had a reddish appearance (due to thin fur,
which shows the skin beneath it). In some descriptions he has the head
of a greyhound. The earliest known representation of Set comes from a
tomb dating to the
Naqada phase of
the Predynastic Period (circa 4000 BC–3500
BC), and the Set-animal is even found on a mace-head of the Scorpion
King, a Protodynastic

("power") sceptres represent the Set-animal. Was-sceptres were carried
by gods, pharaohs, and priests, as a symbol of power, and in later use,
control over the force of chaos (Set). The head and forked tail of the
Set-animal are clearly present. Was-sceptres are often depicted in
paintings, drawings, and carvings of gods, and remnants of real
Was-sceptres have been found constructed of faience

Descent to the underworld
The theme of mythical
deities and Heroes "descending to The Underworld" is of course very
global since it deals with the the Southern Earth Hemisphere - and NOT
with something down under the soil - and especially with the southern
Milky Way contours and the Great Mother Goddess and the archetype of the
Milky Way center.
Harrowing of Hell, an icon by
Dionisius, from the
The descent to the underworld is a
comparative mythology found in the
religions of the Ancient Near East up to and including
myth involves the death of a youthful god (or goddess:
Inanna, for instance) who is a
life-death-rebirth deity, mourned and then recovered from the
underworld by his or her consort, lover or mother.
One meaning of katabasis is the epic convention of the hero's
trip into the
Greek mythology, for example,
Orpheus enters the underworld in order to bring
Eurydice back to the world of the living.
Most katabases take place in a supernatural underworld, such as
Hell — as in
Nekyia, the 11th book of the
Odyssey, which describes the descent of
Odysseus to the underworld. However, katabasis can also refer to a
journey through other dystopic areas, like those Odysseus encounters on
his 20-year journey back from
Ithaca. Pilar Serrano
allows the term katabasis to encompass brief or chronic stays in
the underworld, including those of
Castor and Pollux.
Mythological characters who make visits to the underworld include:
Ancient Greek and Roman
Enkidu, in a tablet of the
Epic of Gilgamesh usually considered a later addition to the
Gilgamesh descends to the underworld to meet
Utnapishtim in a quest for immortality.
Inanna descends to the underworld with gifts to pass through the
seven gates of the underworld.
