In most mythical traditions, mountains are seen as the home of the gods.
This can be understood symbolically, of course, but it is also a reality; the
peaks of high mountains are antennae which put the earth in contact with Heaven.
When you climb a mountain, the higher you go the deeper the silence,
and in this silence you discover the origin of all things.
