They were here and might return
Journeying the realms of virtu-reality where wo-man strives to decipher the conundrum........Note that: 1) may contain scary content. 2)In my ken, all beings thought of being gods are entities from other dimensions with supernatural powers way beyond regular human capacity. This made many people who have experienced their presence mis-perceive them as gods, demi-gods, etc.....Things change when a proportion of humans evolves into 'luminous' or the exohumans return; whichever may happen first...

Unicorn

Unicorn | They were here and might return | Scoop.it


The unicorn is a legendary creature usually depicted with the body of a horse, but with a single – usually spiral – horn growing out of its forehead (hence its name – cornus being Latin for 'horn' , uni meaning one).


Strong, wild, and fierce, the Unicorn was impossible to tame by man.


Plinie, the Roman naturalist records it as "a very ferocious beast, similar in the rest of its body to a horse, with the head of a deer, the feet of an elephant, the tail of a boar, a deep, bellowing voice, and a single black horn, two cubits in length, standing out in the middle of its forehead."


It was traditionally believed that a virgin who was naked sitting beneath a tree could only catch the delicate unicorn.


The unicorn, who craves purity, would be irresistably drawn to the girl and lie down with his head in her lap. While it slept, the hunter could capture it. If, however, the girl was merely pretending to be a virgin, the unicorn would tear her apart.


Throughout the stories of the unicorn, its horn, the alicorn, is said to have great medicinal powers.


In Ctesias’ writings, the dust filed from the horn was supposed to protect against deadly diseases if mixed into a potion. Or, if you drank from the horn, you would be protected against any poison...

Tuatha Dé Danann

Tuatha Dé Danann | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

 

In Irish-Celtic folklore, the Tuatha Dé Danann ("People of the goddess Danu") are the Irish race of gods, founded by the goddess Danu.

 

These gods, who originally lived on 'the islands in the west', had perfected the use of magic.

 

They traveled on a big cloud to the land that later would be called Ireland and settled there.

 

Shortly after their arrival they defeated the Firbolg at the first battle of Mag Tuireadh.

 

In the second battle of Mag Tuireadh they fought and conquered the Fomorians, a race of giants who were the primordial inhabitants of Ireland.

 

The Tuatha Dé dealt more subtly with the Fomorians than with the Firbolg, and gave them the province of Connacht. There was also some marrying between the two races.

 

The Tuatha Dé themselves were later driven to the underworld by the Milesians, the people of the fabulous spanish king Milesius.

 

There they still live as invisible beings and are known as the Aes sidhe. In a just battle, they will fight beside mortals.

 

When they fight, they go armed with lances of blue flame and shields of pure white...
