I found Einar's statement on Ragnarok. It is found here: https://youtu.be/zbT8vzX4sZY
What he says is this: "...A lot of people tend to confuse Ragnarok with the Christian term "Armageddon", which means "The End of the World." But, that is not the case here because in the Old Norse way of thinking, everything moved in cycles. So it's basically telling the story about a ring that ends,but alsoa ring that begins. So something needs to die, for something else to live. And these days, when the sun is turning, that is what it's about. To let die what needs to die. It's the end of the death cycle, of the year. Today, or in these days, this is when summer is born. This is when light of the year is born. In these days. So it's a very good opportunity ... to let die stuff that you don't need to carry around anymore. To make room for new stuff that you can reap during later this year."
absolutely wonderful post Percy. though im completely lost for words with everyone else having already said everything i could have even properly fathomed to express. most of all i just feel like the timelines are overlapped. different events happening simultaneously yet in their own respective sequence. ymir is killed, thor gets his hammer back, loki is born, aesir/vanir war, ragnarok, etc. different events different times yet at the same time.

Thanks for the quote, Pagan! I was curious to see what he had to say about it. I appreciate everyone's feedback on the topic and like that we are able to discuss this in a productive manner. It's a topic that is sometimes ignored or not explained well (though I didn't do it justice myself).
