`Teut gave the sign of giving-called the Rune "Kaun".
The germ-the thought of light-now resting in Matter,
It now struggles for its essence and becomes a glowing fire....
Kindled these flames-into a fire, light of creation.`
`A sixth is mine, if a man hurts me
with the root of a strange tree,
the ruin he threatened me with
does not hurt me but consumes him.
The "world-tree" Yggdrasil serves in the narrower sense as the Aryan tribal tree, beside which the tribal trees of foreign races are seen as "foreign trees". The runic concept "Kaun", "Kunna"[maid, eg, in [the name] Adelgunde] demonstrates the feminine principle in the All in a purely sexual sense. The tribe, the race, is to be purely preserved; it may not be defiled by the roots of the foreign tree. If it were nevertheless to happen, however, such would be of little use to the "foreign trees", because its "foreign scion" would grow to become its raging foe. Therefore: "Your blood, your highest possession."`
