  • [ – ] ALuzDeBaldr reply Hey Varg, i have a suggestion: What do you think about some videos about the books you like?
  • JoshDalviken reply Blue-eyed master race checking in, watching with my superior night vision. ;-)
  • [ – ] Bronze_Hilt reply I was going to write a long paragraph on why the colour blind part might be a bit off, but then I remembered vid.me doesn't hide my comments when I post links. So here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concetta_Antico https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrachromacy#Humans Notice the last line of that section and the ratio between men and women. Also humans will automatically focus on movement, and we are programmed to see the world in "shapes" instead of shadows and lights like it really is.
  • HyperboreanRenaissance reply Another note, it is often interesting to research the various benefits of blood type and the various functions relating to different "species" of humans, for lack of a better term.
  • HyperboreanRenaissance reply Very interesting. I'd not thought of the benefits of color blindness in a hunter/gatherer wood-dwelling/far north climate and culture, but when put this way it makes sense.
  • [ – ] luishadmag reply But brown eyes must have been an advantage for central/southern Europeans, right? And they too lived in the forest before civilization, and have Neanderthal forebears.
    • [ – ] WhiteExperience parent reply They do have an advantage now, but when the next Ice Age comes, Southern Europe will experience lots of ice and snow. This means that only blue eye genes are going to survive there. Brown eye genes will either be replaced or go south.
      • [ – ] luishadmag parent reply I don't believe so. Just like Varg said in the video, there are other peoples who don't have intelligent blue eyes and live on the snow. We brown eyed people will just adapt using some sort of techonology like goggles.
  • CrucifixA_ZorA_MagnificaT reply I have very light brown eyes, like amber, my skin is white & sensitive to the sun & I am sensitive to heat, my hair is dark. My grandfather was very blonde with blue eyes & growing up having thrown in our faces, that the tall dark & handsome was the ideal, I never understood coz I was always drawn to the fair, blue eyed gentlemen 💙💙
  • [ – ] HyperboreanRenaissance reply Even my father, whose ancestry is Swiss-German, has incredibly clear blue eyes as I do. Goes to show that the spread of this useful genome was well known in Germanic Europe.
  • [ – ] MarteltheHussarofVinland reply What about grey and green? They're mutations, aren't they? (Green is at least, I'm pretty sure)
  • Hedning reply Veldig bra video!
  • Restless-Researcher reply 'For myself, I concur in opinion with such as suppose the people of Germania never to have mingled by inter-marriages with other nations, but to have remained a people pure, and independent, and resembling none but themselves. Hence amongst such a mighty multitude of men, the same make and form is found in all, eyes stern and blue, yellow hair, huge bodies'... -Tacitus, Germania
  • [ – ] oakman reply Have you also considered that blue eyes may have been prevalent where the gene exists because they are beautiful? That's always a powerful force in mate selection.
    • WhiteExperience parent reply This is wrong, life without civilization is not that cozy. During the Ice Age, mate selection was made by people who were able to stay alive, not by the <<most beautiful>>. Besides, there were only blue eyed people in Europe, so even the ugliest person in Europe would be blue eyed.
  • [ – ] FabioArtuso reply What about all those Nietzsche quotes lately? ;-)
  • Thornack reply to bad so called "study of the human races" is seen as something bad these days... love this vid!
  • Hariwulf reply I have one blue and one green. They both love to watch your videos. :)
  • [ – ] wolfn9z reply Proof that we Northern Germans are Nordic because of are bright blue eyes
  • Restless-Researcher reply This was all new knowledge for me. Thank you, fascinating!
  • KyleHorner reply Close call..I was about to move my blue eyes to Africa but now I will stay here in Canada...:-)
  • PJJames reply That was a very cool lesson. TY Brother.
  • Caz27 reply The effects of this are negligible if brown eyes help you against direct sunlight or blue eyes against snow blindness its up to 3-5% at best and wont be noticeable if it was noticeable it would be obvious and many people would notice it throughout the times As for colorblindness that little advantage does not overweight the benefits of color vision Color vision is still better for hunting and colorblindness would only be better in some rare occasions and you also have to take other things into account for example colorblindness would fall behind in Crafitng ,Arts(European is the most artistic/creative race. history prove it) ,tracking ,Identifying, foraging etc
  • Disfear reply At my shitty job and listening to this, not working. Good stuff, Varg. :)
  • [ – ] Aethyr reply I've got brown eyes and I tan very easily, although some of my ancestors have lighter features. I guess it'd be an advantage if I'd go live in Greece or any other Southern European country.
  • DesolationRome reply People with blue eyes can shoot better with a rifle too....I seen it first hand in the Marines. I shot better than everyone, and other good shots mostly had blue eyes as well.
  • [ – ] HansPozzer reply I have around 50/50: blue eyes as the "main" color of the Iris and green near the pupil. But since I have small eyes it just looks green. What are the advantages/disadvantages of green eyes?
  • [ – ] OpulentMiracle reply Another important advantage to blue and green eyes is that they're beautiful, sexy, etc. This is probably at least as important as the essential mechanical, biological differences.
    • [ – ] Arminius parent reply This is YOUR opinion. You are probably European, living in Europe, where blue eyes are (were) important for survival. If you were an African in Africa you'd find brown eyes more attractive.
      • OpulentMiracle parent reply For what it's worth, I also think your opinion is wrong. As far as your attempt to profile me: 1) I'm not European, 2) I don't live in Europe, 3) I have brown eyes, and 4) everyone in my family has brown eyes. And 5) I didn't marry someone who looks like me.
  • Sectual reply Totally fascinating... where do green eyes fall into this? My eyes change colors from blue to green, or a mix of the two, and they're just called 'hazel' because it's hard to tell. They're really not even hazel though.
  • HatchetUlfhedinn reply Fascinating subject.
  • DeathTheGrimComedian reply Bra skit, Varg. Som vanligt. Jag har valt att använda ditt vackra tryne i mina intron framöver, hoppas du inte tar illa upp. :)
  • Valkyrian reply Comments like: varg r u sayin im not european coz i don't have very intelligent blue eyes?!
  • [ – ] Alvgud reply Green eyes for forest dwellers.
  • Hrothberht reply Always thought my ancestry was French until I met a Dane who looked looked at my eyes and said "You're actually Norman -- my people raped your people". Did some genealogy and sure enough, they came from Calvados!
  • amboularozzo reply my green eyed ex will HATE this video ;-)
  • [ – ] Restless-Researcher reply Vargo Vikernibus salutem dat :-) 'Ipse eorum opinionibus accedo, qui Germaniae populos nullis aliis aliarum nationum conubiis infectos propriam et sinceram et tantum sui similem gentem exstitisse arbitrantur. Unde habitus quoque corporum, tamquam in tanto hominum numero, idem omnibus: truces et CAERULEI OCULI, rutilae comae, magna corpora'... -Tacitus, Germania
  • [ – ] mfm_mel reply So, where's the scientific basis of this?
  • TheCarelessVoice reply If you have blue eyes, you have a 125% chance of letting your wife invite strange muslim men into your home.
  • FangStrizer reply since when is santa claus a hunter ?
  • CorvusDargum reply I have brown eyes amd the snow is terrible on my eyes, sometimes I have such a hard time seeing when I first go outside, it usually takes a few before my eyes can adjust.
  • [ – ] v4nillakid reply Mr. Vikernes, how do you harvest firewood sustainably? So that you don't have to worry about cutting down all your trees?
  • Brpyb reply What about green eyes?
  • Aaripaa reply If you know more about this topic, please share.
  • RYUUy reply >tfw brown eyes. At least I still got my somewhat lighter hair.
  • PeterKeller reply I get blinded pretty quickly from sunlight...but then again I have more green than brown in my eye pool. What do you think about people who often claim that their eye colour "changes"?
  • Wyrdin418 reply Artic man! Lol - nice. Good video! My eyes can go through different hues of blue, from dull (when I used to feel ill or bit "ordinary"), to vivid blue when empassioned. ...though when I shift into my seiðr-self, they radiantly glow with intense blue light, sometimes sapphire and others indigo (dependent on the weave). On full night vision: when you shift into it - one has the rods dilate considerably, it feels like there are camera lens opening in stages - one time, having my ears attuned to the minute sounds like the hearts and of blood pumping in other beings, I heard a "shk shk shk" noise inside my eyeballs as I opened my night-vision (one can "tune out" and "tune into" the chosen areas of your perception), with the rods opening in stages ....opening them fully at once can be effected, just takes familiarity. Every detail can be seen, as there are no shadows, but nor are there any colours. Every blade of grass & every leaf can be seen in a whitish hue, that before your vision is on...morely obscured by other objects, not light and dark effects ...since there are no shadows anywhere, it is great for springing the fake enveloping shadows of some of the Enemy that cloak themselves thusly. You can develop this in a similar fashion to RE-opening your eyes to auric vision. Centredness, conscious breathing, and willingness to open to the Greater Life. If you manage to unlock your self from restriction and start to see with "the eyes of the wolf", look up into the sky... there one can see a massive grid many kilometres in the stratospehere, the squares appear to be about 25 - 30 kms across. Also, I've found that after returning from a deer or kangaroo hunt as a normal man, that I had to consciously "return" to the spectrum-spread of colours. Like a form of undoing colour-blindness, similar to a cooling down from a particularly vigorous run.
  • Gottfried reply I fear that my night vision may have been damaged by living in a place far brighter than I evolved to... To make matters worse the sun reflects off of all the shiny cars and metal objects. But I don't know.
  • kendrakane reply my eyes are blue. they have gotten darker with age and same with my blonde hair. I fear I am related to some of you people lol. Here is a picture of my insane blue eyes. http://imgur.com/rEy0BGu
  • FashySlav reply I guess I am a reindeer because my eyes change (albeit slightly) from blue to green depending on the time of year.
  • [ – ] ronikosak reply well i have brown eyes and still think "they" are deep... also, a large portion of europeans have brown/ish eyes, i live in a "meeting point of blue and brown eyes (central europe and balkan)
  • [ – ] Solutrean reply I myself have a darker shade of blue eyes. Would some shades have an advantage over others? Also, what advantage did blonde hair give our ancestors if any?
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply I don't know about shades. Blonde hair.... camo, and maybe it gives some advantage in relation to vitamin D. I don't know for sure though. Middle-blond to dark-blonde hair is very good 'general' camo.
      • [ – ] Solutrean parent reply I have brown hair, but was blonde as a kid. If I can find a blonde wife hopefully my kids will be blonde
        • Arminius parent reply This normal for men, their hair get slightly darker. Funny thing though, my mom has dark hair (almost pitch black) and was blonde when she was a kid. My father is a redhead. My brother and I are now adults, still bright blonde. Genetics can be very interesting.
      • Arminius parent reply Definitely camo. When you did the April fools video I couldn't see your kids in the grass until their faces were visable.
  • [ – ] xSkjYT reply some examples: arctic man *picture of a woman*
