The place we were going to is called Steinkross, in the dead center of a Cosmic Image, paced on the by Iceland's first settlers according to Einar Pálsson's construction of ancient Creation Myth reflected in Njalssaga. Years ago I discovered a hexagonal mound on this location, believed to be manmade and of ancient origin. In a fine volcanic dust we did our survey under the conspicuous mushroom cloud of the eruption from Eyjafjalla glacier, a place which marks the comming of winter on a huge sunwatch imbedded in the Cosmic Image...

A Cosmic Image was a settlers rendering of an "ideal Universe", made to make peace between the mind and a strange place. In all probability it was of great urgency of the mind to make peace with virgin land in this way, as it was colonized. The ideal Cosmic Image was... read more
