PostSubject: The Nine Worlds of Norse Mythology   Thu May 17, 2012 4:40 pm

With the movie The Avengers making over $1 billion world wide, I started thinking about Norse Mythology and the nine realms or worlds associated with it:

Ásgarðr, world of the Æsir.
Vanaheimr, world of the Vanir.
Álfheimr, world of the Álfar (Elves).
Miðgarðr, world of humans.
Jötunheimr, world of the Jötnar (Giants).
Niðavellir, world of the Dvergar (Dwarfs).
Múspell, world of fire and the Fire Jötnar.
Niflhel, world of ice and mist, into which the wicked dead are cast.
Hel, world of the inglorious dead, located within Niflhel/Niflheimr and ruled over by the giantess Hel.


The worlds of the elves, giants and dwarfs do sound like they could be extraterrestrials from some of the encounters out there. I think this has all been explored before, but I do wonder if any of these places could also be real locations on our own planet. The world of ice known as Niflhel could be Greenland (or memories of the last Ice Age); the land of fire could be Hawaii. I do know the Norse were very seaworthy and could of made it to the Pacific Ocean.

I am going to say the worlds of the beings listed are extraterrestrial, and the others can be found on Earth.

Personally I do not think elves and fairies and things are of "alien origin" I think that they have faded because in a sense we can create our own universe with our minds. When we as a human race stopped believing - the magic fades.

I choose ( i say this not to sound like a crack pot) to believe in Faeries. =0)

That is an ongoing theme of my stories: People stopped believing in magic.

I do think they could be true mystical realms also. There are many in the AAT field who would look at all of the fantastic lands and state it is ET.

Colin Wilson actually wrote about several of his friends seeing faeries. He said they were highly placed citizens who were not ones to make things like that up.
