The Tree Giant and the Trolls walked 3 kilometres through Roskilde city while they were screaming and throwing homemade foam stones at the Roskilde Cathedral – the 5th biggest Cathedral in Denmark – they wanted to get rid of the ringing noisy bells and the time-based culture and get back to the raw primordial forces of nature - Unfortunately their stones missed the church - and the Giant Tree and the hooded Trolls got so angry – they started throwing stones at people around them…The stones are still in the Nordic landscape today.
In the Old Norse mythology - it is told how Giants(more common called Trolls) used to throw stones at the church because of the noisy bells – the Giants refused to follow the order of time and rules of the rich powerful church – the Giants were ugly and clumsy and had strong chaotic powers from nature; fire, wind, water, plants, animals and earth – It is told how their stones never hit the church and today many thousand years later the stones are left in the Danish landscape…
This is about Genesis – how Nordic ancestors saw the world before Christianity made its appearance?
”In the beginning was the scream. Not the word, the final result, but the scream, the raw material that can be transformed into words. The difference is huge. Began the world with divine perfection, from which it could only go downhill, or with the potential to forever be manufactured and deployed? And what a view of the world and man comes out of such different beginnings?”
Quote from the book: ‘In the beginning was the scream’ by Henning Kure
