what are runes


sorry for being ignorant, but what are runes???


On Runes.

Huge question.

On one level it is a system of idiographic writing (communication).

On another level, it is a system of communication with the Gods, a system for reading that which is hidden from our humanistic view. They are cosmic tools.

They work as part Oracle, part divination system.

As a writing system, it dates to around 200 BCE, and was used in various forms with the Teutonic and the Norse tribes.
