An Alsalda Supplement
After the references in this week’s episodes of Alsalda to the Dal’s truvidiren and their counting, I thought I’d include this as a supplementary post:
One, the Beginning
Two, the Division
Three, the Mothers, many the Others
Four, the Winds
Five, the Centre ‘I’ define
Six, the balance of Creation
Saram is seven—seven’s His Pole.
Eight is stable when built as a cube
Nine, thrice divided, has the power of all.
And beyond is the Sun.
Ten, the number of Sauën’s daughters
Eleven, the sacred pole in the cave
Together, begetting a sum, those Unholy Twelve that Beli begun.
Why ‘Unholy’? Because the sum of 1 to 11 equals 66. Always considered a sacred number though one not necessarily god-blessed.
