Rökstenen, or The Rök runestone, is one of the most famous runestones and features the longest known runic inscription in stone. It’s also considered to be the first piece of Swedish literature and marks the beginning of the history of Swedish literature.
Fun fact:

The name “Rök Stone” is something of a tautology: the stone is named after the village, “Rök”, but the village is probably named after the stone, “Rauk” or “Rök” meaning “skittle-shaped stack/stone” in Old Norse.

“By walking men’s reversed feet
I chan’d another world to meet;
Tho id did not to view exeed
A phantom, ‘tis a world indeed,
Where skies beneath us shine
And earth by art divine
another face presents below,
Where people’s feet against ours go.”
— Thomas Traherne (1636 - 1674), britischer Poet und Geistlicher
“Die unterbewusste oder unbewusste Ebene des Gewahrseins besteht aus einer Reihe von Schichten, von denen einige dem Bewusstsein bis zu einem gewissen Grad zugänglich sind, andere liegen sehr viel tiefer. In den tieferen Schichten steht das Unterbewusstsein aller Seelen miteinander in Verbindung. Von daher ist es jedem von uns möglich, Informationen aus dem Geist anderer zu beziehen.”
— Edgar Cayce (1877 - 1945), US-amerikanisches Medium, bekannt auch als der “schlafende Prophet”
