Another potentiality is that Frya is Venus, and of course, her seven handmaidens would be the Pleiades constellation, but that leaves some questions on what celestial body (If any) the other two mothers could be identified with and how exactly Venus would've had a role in in the creation of Fryas. With her being either a real human or a planet, the connection to Venus is there. I believe those who contributed to the electric universe theory post would be able to expound more on this idea.
Going back to Frya being human, perhaps she could have been our first ancestor in a less literal sense. This fragment may relate:
Now it was time for Festa to light the new Lamp, and when that had been done in the presence of the folk, Frya called from her watch-star so that all could hear it: “Festa, take up your stylus and write the things that earlier I had no chance to say.” Festa did as she was bidden, and that is how we, Frya’s children, received our primal history. -2b Our Primal History
Does this imply that prior to this spiritual revelation to Festa, the folk were in a state of ignorance as to Frya's nature? The Sandbach translation makes it seem as though we became 'Fryas Children' in that moment of revelation:
Although Sandbach's translation is obviously not as accurate as Ott's later translation. Frya could have been our mother in a haplogroup sort of sense where she was a tribal leader who gave us written language and laws and had many children, enough to the point where everyone belonging to the 'white race' could track their maternal lineage back to her. Following this train of thought, Europes history could be divided into Fryan and Pre-Fryan times, with cultures like those responsible for creating works like the various Venus statues littered across the continent occupying a time in history from before a complete paradigm shift brought on behalf of 'Frya's tribe'. Similarly in the bible Adam is described as the first man, yet somehow his descendant Cain is able to wander and find a wife outside of Adam's descendants - it becomes clear Adam wasn't the 'first man' but rather the first ancestor to the Semites, their mythical ethnogenesis.Festa did as she was bid, and thus we became Frya's children, and our earliest history began.
What if the Venus statues were commemorative portraits of (perhaps even elderly) matriarchal leaders? Various tribes in pre-Fryan Europe would have immortalized their leaders in this cultural style.
A venus-like statue of Cybele, the Phrygian name for Frya.
I'm interested as to what everyone on this forum's thoughts are on this subject.
