I was wondering if some of you would be interested in joining a Mythology Question and Answer website. The site I'm referring to is the Mythology Stack Exchange (url: http://mythology.stackexchange.com/), and it already has several questions and answers that should be interesting to the audience of alt.mythology:

1. Maya -- What is the significance of the sport ball in the Popol Vuh? (http://mythology.stackexchange.com/q/215/62)

2. Greek -- What was Plato's inspiration for the Atlantis myth? (http://mythology.stackexchange.com/q/697/62)

3. Norse -- Why was Odin afraid that his ravens would not return back to him? (http://mythology.stackexchange.com/q/419/62)

4. Judeo-Christian -- Why did God prefer Abel's offering to Cain's? (http://mythology.stackexchange.com/q/943/62)

I hope to see some of you there,

Hamlet

Here's the answer I posted there:

I link the raven to new moon, and associate it with my waning crescent
to new moon inspired highs of 1991 to 1994, described on my Salmon on
the Thorns web page. The first such high culminated in a naked sun
stare, thorn hill climb, and blue rose vision. The naked thorn hill
climb, two days before new moon, I relate to Havamal 138 and thus I
claim to be similar to the author of Havamal 138 to 141. The fear that
the ravens won't return I relate to my fear that I won't come out of the
current low years into a period of sustained productive creativity, as
in Havamal 141.


I discuss Havamal 138 to 141 some more on
http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/asatru.html which is a subsubpage
of my Salmon on the Thorns mystic bipolar autobiography page.
