    it's been a while since we covered some Norse Mythology and most of my videos on the topic feel kinda bad compared to the new videos so here you go.

      I have always thought there is more to these myths than mere tales.I think the "ocean" surrounding midgard is the observable universe -our physical plane that conforms to our plaws of physics.Jormangardr contains and surrounds this plane and anything on the outside is beyond our understanding or recognition. Jormangadr is quite like the greek ouroboros.The snake that swallows its tail repeatedly being reborn or regenerated.Linking the microscopic with the macroscopic of our physical universe.

    Uthgarda Loki was the giant king not loki don't get me wrong Loki also was tested by the king with an eating competition but he was also bested the next day also to be told that he almost defeated wild fire itself which is said to consume entire forests with it

    The giant king couldn't be loki because in the story the king tricks thor loki and some fast kid they brought along.

    How could Thor have defeated Jormungandr? I thought their battle was to be so immense that it damaged the Wold Tree Ygdrassil causing the serpent to be sent back in time before he was born. Also, isn't Loki supposed to be Thor's uncle?

    I wanted to call my cat Jörmungandr but my mom said that no one would be able to pronounce it. Sure, maybe most people won't be able to make the "ö" sound, but it's a relatively easy name other than that. Jör-mun-gandr. It's not like that Welsh town, haha.

    Atreus has got a BIG role to play as Loki, then. But God Of War is purely a Kratos story... Can't imagine how he'd be sidelined
