In Norse mythology, Hel is a being who presides over a realm of the same name, where she receives a portion of the dead. In the Poetic Edda and Heimskringla, Hel is referred to as a daughter of Loki, and to "go to Hel" is to die. Hel is described as having been appointed by the god Odin. Her appearance is described as half-black and half-flesh coloured and as further having a gloomy, down-cast appearance. (Wikipedia)

Odin the All Father: "Can you write them? Read them? Can you paint them? Prove them? Know you how to wish? How to worship? How to summon? How to sacrifice? Better not to ask than to over-pledge. As a gift demands a gift. Better not to send than to slay too many. Well-being I won and wisdom too, I grew and joyed in my growth - I was led to a word, from a deed to another deed..."

odin- father of Norse mythology
Odin - the Norse had something of an ambivalent relationship with the leader of the Aesir. He was certainly an awesome warrior, equiped with an incredible stead (the eight-legged horse Sleipnir) and a superlative weapon (the spear Gungnir) - all things a Viking could admire. He paid a manly price (being hanged for nine days) for Wisdom and his raven spies Hunin and Munin made him all-knowing - things a Northman might regard with caution. But the All-Father was also a worker of magic, a highly suspect and effeminate art in the eyes of the Norsemen which he had learned from the chief goddess of the Vanir, Freya.

Day 23 - Joulupukki is a traditional character associated with Christmas in Finnish culture, comparable to Santa Claus or Father Christmas. Numerous parallels have been drawn between Santa Claus and the figure of Odin, a major god amongst the Germanic peoples prior to their Christianization. Since many of these elements are unrelated to Christianity, there are theories regarding the pagan origins of various customs of the holiday stemming from areas where the Germanic peoples were Christianized and retained elements of their indigenous traditions, surviving in various forms into modern depictions of Santa Claus.
Odin: Viking God Taken from UppsalaOdin is a god of many things. I mean that in the sense that he presides over them, or is the cause, or effector of them. Chief amongst them, perhaps, is death. Odin is the psychopomp, the ferryman who conducts souls from the land of the living to the land of the dead. He is the one who hands out death. As such he is the one who apportions victory in battle, as the one who controls death also controls the victory.

Norse Goddess Frigga, wife of Odin... looks like Sleeping Beauty and the spinning wheel
Frigg was the wife of Oðin, the King of the Æsir gods. She was the Norse goddess of marriage and nature was under her control. About her was always the smell of fresh flowers and fruits of the earth. It was said that she could see the future, but told no one, not even Oðin, what she knew. In her hall, she would sit at her spinning wheel and weave the clouds for the summer sky. With Oðin, she was the mother of Baldur, Höður, Hermóður.

In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a universe. — Nikola Tesla “The Electrical Review, 1893”

Phallic worship was brought n2 the world w/ the Patriarchal social systems, the same replacing the aboriginal Matriarchal ones, effectively enslaving women (& frequently children & animals as well), instituting prostitution & orgies, treating wives sub-humanly as property, sex objects, breeders, slaves. imho
