Pagan Mid-Summer Celebration in Riga

You might be a bit surprised by the number of participants in this Pagan festival celebration, and also by the fact that they all know the Pagan lyrics by heart.

In your face Christians!

Try harder the next time, Teutonic Knights: Latvia remains Pagan.

Hail the people of Latvia!

The lyrics:

Lyrics (Google translated from Latvian):
Saule Latvi sēdināja Sun Latvia Seat
Tur, kur gali satiekas Where edges converge
Balta jūra, zaļa zeme White Sea, green earth
Latvei vārtu atslēdziņa key to the gate of Latvia

Latvei vārtu atslēdziņa, the key to the gate of Latvia
Daugaviņas sargātāja. Daugava (Dvina) – the keeper
sveši ļaudis vārtus lauza And when strangers broke into the gate
Jūrā krita atslēdziņa. At sea, the key fell

Zilzibeņu pērkons spēra, lightning struck Perun
velniem ņēma atslēdziņu. After taking the key from the devils
Nāvi, dzīvi Latve slēdza, Death and life are locked
Baltu jūru, zaļu zemi like white sea and green earth

Saule Latvi sēdināja Posada Sun Latvia
Baltas jūras maliņā on the edge of the White Sea
Vēji smiltis putināja winds raise Sands
ko lai dzēra latvju bērni? What will our children drink

Saule lika Dieviņami, the Sun God was
Lai tas raka Daugaviņu. If only revived Daugaviņa
Zvēri raka, Dieviņš lēja beasts tear direction.
No mākoņa dzīvūdeņi. and God is pouring from the heavens water of life

Dzīves ūdens, nāves ūdens living water and dead water
Daugavā satecēja. Poured into the River Daugava
Es pamērcu pirkstu galu I dip fingertips
Abus jūtu dvēselē. The soul of the two sensations

Nāves ūdens, dzīves ūdens living water and dead water
Abus jūtu dvēselē soul in two senses

Saule mūsu māte- Sun – Our Mother
Daugav – sāpju aukle. Daugava (High Water) lulls pain
Pērkons velna spērējs Perun – Veles conqueror
Tas mūsu tēvs. Father to us.

Thank you very much Павел Свобода for sharing this with me!

Ah, those silly housewives; always suppressed by the patriarchy, right? Well, not always it seems…

a. The illusion of light and the nature of the photon

The other hypothese (in which I believe) are now coming with the remainder of my cosmogonical description. You know that Einstein believed that space and time was only one dimension in the universe. Gravity is a force that changes the fabric of the spacetime. The greater the mass is, the more it distorts the fabric, and the celestial object can disappear into the fabric of space-time. This deformation is why any object is deflected and can “fall” in the space-time. This also applies to the light, according to Einstein, which is thus “redshifted” precisely because of the gravitational effect.

In fact, the redshift of the reflected or created light by a celestial object is also known as an optical effect resulting from the movement of the celestial object. As the Doppler effect concerning the sound, it…
