Gnostic Alchemy and Creation in the Germanic Edda
We can consider the Edda as the Germanic Bible. The occult knowledge of the nordic peoples is contained in this archaic book. The stories of the Edda about the ‘Genesis’ of the world are as follows:
“In the beginning there were only two regions: one of fire and light where the absolute and eternal being, Alfadir ruled, and the other, a region of darkness and cold called Nifiheim , ruled by Surtr (meaning ‘Black’ or ‘Darkness’). Between one region and the other the chaos extended itself.
The sparks that escaped from Alfadir fertilized the cold vapors of Nifiheim , and Ymir (father of the race of giants) was born. To nourish him – and in the same manner – the cow Audumla was created, from whose udder flowed the four rivers of milk.
Satisfied, Ymir fell asleep and from the sweat of his hands a giant couple was born, male & female; and from one of his feet, a monster with six heads.”
In the ‘Genesis’ of creation we have Sexual Alchemy: the fire fecundated the cold waters of chaos. The masculine principle Alfadir fecundated the feminine principle Nifiheim , dominated by Surtr (the Darkness), to bring forth life.
That is how Ymir is born, the father of the giants, the Internal God of every human being, the Master (our Inner Being). He is nourished with the materia prima or raw material of the Great Work. Said substance is the milk of the cow Audumla . The sacred white cow of India.
In the ‘Genesis’ of Moses: the four rivers of Eden are mentioned, the four rivers of milk. These four are the flaming fire, the pure water of life, the impetuous air and the perfumed elemental earth of the sages (the four Tattvas).
In every Alchemical operation the four elements enter into activity. These cannot be absent from the Sexual Alchemy of Creation.
Ymir sleeps and from his sweat a giant couple is born, male & female, the sublime and giant primitive divine Hermaphrodite of the Sacred Island. In the ‘Genesis’ of Moses: Adam sleeps and God takes Eve from one of his ribs. Before this moment Eve was within Adam, and was Adam himself. He-She was a Hermaphrodite.
From the feet of this giant hermaphrodite (the Polar Race), the six-headed monster was born (the Star of Solomon, the Sexual Alchemy of the human being), which through many centuries ends in the separation or division of the giants, transforming them into human beings of separate sexes. The division into opposite sexes is the beginning of the great tragedy. From the hermaphroditic giant the six-headed monster is born.
The human being will again be a divine hermaphrodite. Man will return to Eden accompanied by his divine Eve. When man and woman are sexually united, in those moments they are a single hermaphroditic being. In fact, in those moments of supreme sexual voluptuousness, we are Gods. This is the supreme moment, which the Initiate knows how to utilize for their magical phenomena.
The birth of the human being into separate sexes was a grandiose event of anthropogenesis, which was realized over many millions of years. After having given a marvelous description of the creation of the World, the Germanic Edda relates the separation into opposite sexes as follows:
“Immediately the Gods decided to create the first human pair. Man was formed from an Ash tree, and they called him Askr . The woman was formed from an Alder tree, and they called her Embla .
Odin gave them the soul; Vili gave them understanding; Ve gave them beauty and the senses. And the Gods, satisfied with their work, retired to rest and to enjoy themselves in their mansion at Asgard , located in the center of the universe.”

The End of the World according to Nordic Mythology
The story of the Edda regarding the destruction of the world is the Germanic Apocalypse or Book of ‘Revelations’:
“Nature itself starts to become disordered; the seasons cease to alternate; the terrible Fimhulvetr (meaning ‘great winter’) dominates and lasts for three years because the Sun has lost its strength; there is no faith among men; peace between brothers, relatives and children of the same tribe is not observed; the sacred duty of the Germans to respect the dead, of cutting their nails and of burying them is neglected.
At the consummation of the centuries, Hrimer (the frost giant) and his innumerable companions have to embark on a colossal ship in order to destroy the Gods, their happy and resplendent abode Valhalla , and the universe. This terrible reproachful ship (which is made from only the nails of the dead, that were never cut by any merciful soul) advances and grows in spite of the smallness of its materials, until the corruption reaches its limit.
Then the monsters (whom the Gods had managed to bind) break the chains which bound them. The mountains sink, the jungles are uprooted, the wolves (who since the beginning of the world have howled at the Sun & Moon) try to devour these two stars. In the past, the wolves have sometimes almost had the Sun & Moon within their clutches, but now they reach them and consume them once and for all.
The wolf Fenrir breaks his bonds and assails the world with open jaws, reaching the sky with one jaw and the Earth with the other, and would open them even wider, but there is no space.
The Serpent of Midgard floods all the Earth (because the human being has become a fornicator, wasting their waters); the frost giants come from the Levant in their ship of nails.
At high-noon the powers of the destructive fire draw nearer. Loki , the Surdr (‘Black’ or ‘Darkness’), and the sons of Muspeliheim come to fight the final decisive battle of the Æsir .
The divinities of Valhalla prepare to receive the enemy. Their watchman Heimdall , posted at the entrance to the bridge that leads to their dwelling, sounds the clarion and the Gods, in union with the souls of the heroes who have died in battle, go out to receive the giants.
The battle begins, and ends with the destruction of both armies; with the death of the Gods and the giants; the incandescence of those of the fire spreads over the world, so that all is consumed in an immense purifying holocaust.”
A profound analysis of the ‘Genesis’ and ‘Revelations’ of the Edda shows us that the key point, in one as well as in the other, is the sexual question. The world is created sexually.
The primitive hermaphrodite is divided sexually. It is a God when it does not spill the seed, when it does not waste the waters. It becomes a demon when it spills the seed, the waters of life. The world is created sexually, and this world is destroyed when human beings become terrible fornicators, when the Great Whore has reached the limit of corruption, when the serpent of Midgard floods the entire Earth.
In fact, when a human being becomes accustomed to spilling the seed, then the Great Whore is born whose number is six hundred and sixty six. Fornication, wasting the creative energy through the spasm, corrupts the human being. Through fornication the human being becomes terribly perverse, and then the world is destroyed.
The unknown monsters of Nature (elements about which the human being does not know, and which the Gods have enchained) are unleashed with atomic weapons. The jungles are uprooted, the wolves of Karma howl horrible; the wolf Fenrir breaks his bonds and attacks the world with open mouth, touching the sky and the earth with his jaws.
The Karma is terrible, and there will be a collision of worlds. In archaic times there has already been a similar collision, and the Earth, which was closer to the sun than it is now, was hurled to its present distance.
Now this cataclysm will be repeated due to the Law of Karma. Then, as stated in the Germanic Edda , everything will be consumed in an immense purifying holocaust.
There cannot be any ‘Genesis’ without Sexual Alchemy. Likewise, there cannot be any Apocalypse (or Book of ‘Revelations’) without sexual degeneration. Every ‘Genesis’ and every ‘Apocalypse’ is based on the phallus and the uterus. The Fire creates and the Fire destroys.
The powers of the destructive Fire are already in motion due to the sexual degeneration in which humanity has sunk itself. The hour has come to comprehend the necessity to enter fully the Path of the Perfect Matrimony. Only those who resolve to follow this Path can save themselves from the abyss and the second death. God shines upon the Perfect Couple.

The Soul, the Inner Being, and the Tiger of Wisdom
In the name of Truth we have to recognize that the problem of human salvation is very difficult to resolve. Jesus emphasizes the tremendous difficulty of entering the Kingdom of Esotericism and attaining Eternal Salvation. It is urgent to fabricate Soul if we really want to save ourselves.
Let us remember that the human being only has an Embryo of Soul incarnated. We need to fortify this Embryo and later incarnate the Cosmic Soul. Now it is good to clarify, that to incarnate the Soul signifies (in the end) to be assimilated, devoured, by the Tiger of Wisdom. We need the Tiger of Wisdom to devour us. This Tiger is the Intimus, our Real Being, the Atman of Hinduism.
The Aztecs say that the first race that existed in the world was devoured by tigers. In Yucatán there existed the Temple of the Tigers. Quetzalcoatl , with his tiger claws, traps the human heart. The Tiger Cult was never absent in any of the Mystery Temples of America.
The Order of the Tiger Knights was very sacred in Aztec Mexico. The Intimus needs to swallow the heart of the human being, that is to say: to assimilate it, absorb it, devour the human personality that has fabricated what is called Soul.
It is truly the case that the Intimus is like a tree with many leaves. Each leaf is a human personality. The Intimus does not have one single personality as pseudo-esotericists believe. The Intimus has various personalities, and what is most astounding is that he can have them incarnated in different parts of the world.
When a human personality does not fabricate Soul, it is logical that they are lost, and they descend into the abyss. But this is not important to the Intimus. This is like a leaf that falls from the Tree of Life, one leaf without any importance. The Intimus continues attending to the other personalities, struggling so that they may fabricate Soul, in order to devour them as the Tiger of Wisdom.
Therefore, the human person (the intellectual animal called a human being), is worth less than the ash of a cigarette. But, the fools feel themselves to be giants. The only one who is truly great is the Spirit, the Intimus, our Real Inner Being.
We, the intellectual animals, are leaves that the wind tosses about. Leaves of the Tree of Life; that is all. Humanity has failed. Most of humanity, almost all, still do not have Soul. The great majority of humans are dead leaves, which the hurricane of fatality drags to the abyss; leaves fallen from the Tree of Life…
The wolf Fenrir breaks his terrible bonds as the Germanic Edda says. Karma falls upon the whole of humanity. The divinities of Valhalla will fight the enemy. The Serpent of Midgard floods the entire Earth, and the world is a failure.
Every planet gives birth to seven root races; thereafter it dies. Our planet Earth has already given birth to five root races; two more root races are needed. Seven elements of nature exist.
The first root race lived in the polar cap of the north and conquered the fire.
The second root race, after having fought against the tempestuous atmosphere of the air from the second continent, the Hyperborean continent, finally attained the conquest of the air and adapted themselves to its environment.
The third root race lived in Lemuria, fighting against the tempestuous seas, and was removed by incessant seaquakes. The third root race conquered the water.
The fourth root race lived in the continent of Atlantis within an aqueous atmosphere. Human beings breathed though gills; but a total transformation happened in the human physiognomy with the Deluge: the human being developed his lungs and adapted himself to the new atmosphere. Then the human being perceived the physical world with his sight and he conquered the element earth.
Presently we are in the Aryan Root Race, which populates the five continents of the world. The triumph of this root race has not yet been achieved…
We are penetrating the ethereal world, where the human being has to conquer the fifth element of nature, the ether. The ethereal world (fourth dimension) has to be the conquest of the Aryan Race. Gross materialism must fall wounded before the majesty of the ether…
Later on, the Sixth Root Race will inhabit the continent of Antarctica and will conquer the Astral Light. Finally, the Seventh Root Race will conquer the Cosmic Mind; then, the human being will elevate itself to the Angelic kingdom.
According to Gnostic Anthropology: The first race was devoured by the Tigers of Wisdom. It was an immortal race. The second race was swept away by strong hurricanes. The third race was converted into birds, the fourth into fish-men and the fifth will be converted into goats…
Germanic mythology contains knowledge that comes from the North, where we find the cradle of humanity. The Germanic Edda is Nordic wisdom.
The ancestors of the Aztecs lived on the Sacred Island of the North. The occult wisdom came from the North to Lemuria, and from Lemuria it passed to Atlantis. After the Atlantean submersion, the wisdom remained in those lands that formed part of the Atlantean continent…
Thus, if we want to find the Wisdom of the Serpent, we shall find it in Mexico, Egypt, Yucatan etc. These countries really formed part of Atlantis.
It is urgent to study the Germanic Edda , to know how to read between the lines, and then to investigate Easter Island, Mexico, Yucatan etc.
The Germanic Edda , with its ‘Genesis’ and ‘Apocalypse’ (or Book of ‘Revelations’) is pure Sexual Magic. The root of our Being is found in sex. We need the Serpent to devour us. We need to be devoured by the Tiger. First, the Serpent devours us, and then the Tiger.
