The thread about literally nothing OO


Hugin and Munin
Fly every day
Over all the world;
I worry for Hugin
That he might not return,
But I worry more for Munin.

Heed these words,
you who wish to probe the depths of nature:
if you do not find within yourself
that which you seek, neither
will you find it outside.
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures.
Know thyself and you will know
the Universe and the Gods.

The glories of our blood and state, are shadows, not substantial things; There is no armour against fate, death lays his icy hand on kings. Scepter and crown must tumble down, and, in the dust, be equal made with the poor crooked scythe and spade.

Re: The thread about literally nothing OO
"Ravens aren’t only birds of gore and carnage; they’re also exceptionally intellectual birds, and Odin is an exceptionally intellectual god.

This aspect of the connection is indicated by the names of Hugin and Munin. Hugin (Old Norse Huginn) comes from the word hugr,[9] “thought.” Munin (Old Norse Muninn) comes from the word munr,[10] which is more difficult to translate, but can encompass the concepts of “thought,” “desire,” and “emotion.” (The two ravens’ names are often translated as “Thought” and “Memory” in popular works on Norse mythology, and “Thought” is quite accurate, but “Memory” is at best imprecise and rather arbitrary.) The two names therefore can’t be neatly distinguished from one another; they overlap to the point of being virtually synonymous.[11] This reflects the fact that, in the sources, Hugin and Munin don’t have distinct personalities. They’re a duplicate form of the same underlying idea.

More specifically, their names refer to their being concrete visualized forms of the “thought” of Odin. In the Norse worldview, the self is comprised of numerous different parts that are semi-autonomous and can detach from one another under certain circumstances. These detached parts are frequently imagined in an animal form that corresponds to their underlying character. In the case of Hugin and Munin, they’re Odin’s intellectual/spiritual capabilities journeying outward in the form of fittingly intelligent and curious birds that also resonate with Odin’s roles as a battle god and death god."

I found the excerpt above to bring immediately to the mind's eye that of two circles converging, perhaps one with a complex pattern within it but a circle just the same. This is also interesting in that Odin is a one eyed God. Both names denote similar things (Huginn and Muninn). Huginn generally is taken to mean Thought, while Muninn is a more complex concept not as easily defined but could be taken to mean the subconscious. Kind of sheds new light on the OP poem, also taken from this article but known to me for some time.
