Being a geek of sorts I have this need to explore things and so I was toying with the idea of the unit circle, a sine wave, the elder futhark, and the nine worlds, plotted together. The X axis, horizontal, is literally the year in our time and the elder futhark plotted in 15 degree increments of 360 degree's. I have also added the Germanic 9 worlds and corresponding directions while the Y axis, vertical, can be viewed as Hel, Dark Alfheim, Midgard, Alfheim, Asgard.

I don't know that this has any value to anyone but me but I figured you might like to see what the old mushroom wizard is up to in western PA, USA. 

And fooling around with some numbers I find the traditionally sacred 3,6,9 interesting. Like I said, I don't know if this is anything more than me adding subjective meaning to nothing at all. Then again, isn't that a possibility with everything we perceive? Cool stuff to contemplate IMHO.

Interestingly enough, I started, the community here, close to mid March 2010. The earliest post on the Forum is the 9th. 

I always like these visualizations of the Futhark, but I'd be curious as to what you think they really accomplish? Yes, all meaning is subjective, perception as well -- objectivity is a discipline and an ideal, best achieved through training and peer review. This is not a scientific endeavour, however, so don't feel you have to withhold your thoughts merely because they are 'subjective'. ;)

If nothing else it provides an awareness that "this" has been tried but really it's nothing more than just exploration at this point and 24 fits quite nicely on the circle (and sine wave) the numeric layout came from work I did on a table top carving.
