He discovers that these age-old rituals are the roots to all philosophies, traditions and religions.

As some people asked, here is the translation of the text of the music in the trailer. It is a literal translation of the Voluspa from the book Sorcery and Religion in Ancient Scandinavia by Varg Vikernes

Gullaldr means Golden Age

56
Then came the honoured
the sound’s son
the mind’s son went
to fight the worm
killed him with courage
the sacred rain of the world in the middle
he clears all halls
in the inhabited world ;
walks nine feet
carries to the mountain
the dregradation of the worm
infamous refrain

57
The Sun turns black
the Earth sinks into the sea
thrown from the sky
bright stars ;
sparks sprays
and the fire is
playing tall and hot
by the sky itself

58
The swallower is barking loudly,
in front of the cave leaning over the hillside,
the ties/mounts are torn,
hardship is growing,
she knows that the flocks sing,
I look forward, even further,
to the end of the powers,
the destinity of the victorious god.

59
She sees rising on the other side
land from the sea
green again
waterfalls
eagle flying above
the one who on the mountains
catches fish

60
The spirits find
on the ground on the backwater field
and talks about the old Earth
the destinity of the powers,
and remember there
great things
and the great god’s
old secrets.

61
There they will later
strange
golden tablets
find in the grass,
which in the old days
were possessions of their kin.

62
With no sowing
the fields will grow
bad luck will be better
Baldr will come ;
live there Höðr and Baldr
Hrofts (Óðinn’s) victory fields
selected by the fallen/chosen gods.
Do you still know enough, or what ?

63
Then the temter (Freyr) chose
blood wood
and started to build
the double’s brothers
wide wind world
Do you still know enough or what ?

64
She saw a hall stand
decorated on the Sun
covered with gold
on the sea of gems ;
there the skilled
kings should build
and in the days of life
enjoy.
