Time / Wurt / Urlag
(part 1)

By: Hjuka Harugari

Once we've regained an internalization of the proper, Germanic understanding of time (as a bifidic cyclic movement as opposed to the Augustinian linear progression) we can then gain a true comprehension of urlag and wurt, and of related concepts and terminologies such as forthcoming, forethought, foresee, etc...


".to the unlearned, such words bring to mind a notion of 'future', of that which lies ahead of the present, and are often presented in argument against a bifidic or binary recognition of time in Germanic thinking. Concepts such as foresee, and foresight bring to the uninitiated mind thoughts of destiny, of a determination of 'future' times and events yet to be."  (fr Germ.Hea.)


Without the establishment or manifestation of a 'future' within the reckoning of time, it seems hardly conceivable that there would be derivative terminologies/activities associated to it in the whole scheme of things...and this is more apparent when we consider the *true* meanings of such terms themselves...

The prefix fore- (OE fore-, Go faura-, OHG/OS fora-) denotes something that holds an 'advanced place' or position, something coming or occurring first, that which precedes. or comes before in time, order, or space. It is also used in relating a 'forward motion' ...well, you obviously can't have a forward motion from a 'future' into further 'future' without any real substance or foundation for such a movement.. so it is clearly NOT what is related in the real meaning(s) of relative terms. Instead, what we have is an indication of a forward motion out of the past into the non-past, out of that-which-is to that-which-is-shaping...so, such a prefix doesn't denote a 'future' to come, but that which already is or has come: foreknowledge and the ability to foresee have nothing to do with 'knowing' a non-existent future, or being able to see that which is immaterial or stands in some 'time to come', but rather is having that ability to know or see what has come before -specifically, what actions have been laid within Wurt's Well, and what is shaping or forthcoming (literally, coming forward) out of that well to influence or effect that-which-is-becoming in the non-past. [[Sure, you might think that understanding or seeing these actions/deeds, these layers in the Well is obvious enough, or that it doesn't take such great insight or ability to read...but think about all of the days in all of the years of your life...how much of all those days do you truly recall?]] ..for those gifted, or for those who are capable in some means of divination (such as runes, tarot cards, pendulum, or any combination of the three or by some other means) a deeper assessment can be made of what's about to unfold in the Present/Non-past based on the totality of the layers placed within the well over some period of/or the whole of one's life, and of the real effects that our deeds/actions have made, of the shaping influences one layer of stratum has had in the placement/shaping of the next, and of the results which are yet to unfold (and become manifest in some form in the Non-past)....
