for example, the theft of the Sampo depicts nothing less than the theft of the sky's
pillar, which would result in the destruction of the world and its structures.11
Northern cultures typically conceive of the beginning of time as including a period
of chaos when ...

The "man's god" dwelling in the body is worshipped externally in a pile of stones
on the roof of the house, and, likewise, the "woman's god" is worshipped in the
central pillar of the house.32 From this perspective, macrocosm and microcosm
form a single continuum folding in upon itself; the traditional Tibetan house
ladder made of a single notched tree trunk connecting the floors from top to
bottom is, in the same moment, the primordial pillar of the sky that connects the
sky to earth.33 ...

In regards to the earlier pillar, and pet-ra symbols of the night sky, which I
mentioned, this has something to do with a ensnared Bear of the regional folklore
of Europe. It would only be fair to mention something a intemet site proposed, on
a website of SU International Philosophy and Publications of Siloam, net about
the Polynesian version of my question as to the function of these ancient pillars
even in the pacific ocean region. In Polynesia, “the principle theme of the
Polynesians were ...

He supports the sky and is called the pillar of the sky (RV 1v: 13: 5). His
knowledge of men's movements gives him the position of a judge of human
actions : let him proclaim the innocent before Mitra, Varuna, Aryaman and Agni. A
familiar idea is that the solar gods enter the fire by night, hence it is that the fire is
seen from a distance at night; this fire enters the rising sun at dawn (RVx: 88: 6).
Hence fire is seen only as smoke by day. 'Agni is light, light is the sun, svaha': this
