Objective informations which most of you might not know:
30 June 2019 | by eyeMDbeeSee all my reviews

(I took this out of my review for the second episode and put it here, because this one had no reviews when I posted it.) About the title of this episode: "Sic Mundus Creatus est" is the latin phrase of the Emerald tablet which you also can see tattoed onto the back of one of the characters (I think later in this series). It describes the alchemical wisdom of how the world works - the most famous sentence you might know is "as above so below" which demonstrates the correlation between the micro- and macrocosmos.

A few times in this series you will also see a symbol of 3 half circles intertwined which is the celtic knot called Triquera which symbolises the eternal life without beginning and end - which is probably one of the oldest celtic symbols of spirituality.

Whilst you are in the web already you may look up those names. And here two more very subjective informations from me personally:

I live about 24km away from Winden and can tell you that the Winden of this episode is purely fictional, because apart from the fact that this was shot 800-9000 km away in an old East-German military field near Berlin; here in the black forest due to a rebellious fight of the farmers in the 80s there is no nuclear power station anywhere. The folks also are different here - usually more "conservative layed back" with all its pros and cons, but then again those differences would matter more in the 20s or 50s, still a bit in the 80s, but not anymore since the rise of the Internet.

"Sich winden" in German means to twist, which is probably the reason for the name of this village, because the series is full of twists and the people shady.
