Kvilhaug explains that, viewed from a Nordic cosmological angle, femininity represents the unseen forces - the wisdom sought - while masculinity represents the physical forces and the search for wisdom. As such, the principle of masculinity seeks to uncover the principle of femininity - the seeker and the sought, the question and the answer, the illusion and the reality. What I find really intriguing is that there is an inherent mirroring that occurs as the cosmos becomes physical. Until that point, the feminine principle remains unseen while the masculine principle is the physical action that helps bring matter into existence. Once that happens, however, the principles seem to flip.
