But I can see where looking at the stars would be a total inner system, which would quiet the logical rational mind, and perhaps even keep one in a "liminal state". I think that's it.

eta: and also note when my ex was the recipient of my "hot hands" to sooth aches and nerves, she eventually got a jangley electric series of impulses up her spine that scared the dickens out of her (and me) ...and I stopped with my near instinctual "treatments".. .stressing that neither of us knew what we were doing...
Culhwch is given the task by Ysbaddaden Pencawr, the giant whose daughter Olwen Culhwch seeks, of obtaining the comb and scissors from Twrch's head. Later in the story it transpires there is also a razor secreted there. These implements are then to be used to cut and treat Ysbaddaden's hair (most of the tasks on the giant's long list are ultimately to do with this ceremony of hair-cutting).
Further, Ysbaddaden states that the only hound who can hunt Twrch is Drudwyn, the whelp of Greid, and then goes on to list the requirements of the leash to hold Drudwyn, the only man strong enough to hold the leash. Ultimately Ysbaddaden calls on Culhwch to seek out Arthur, Culhwch's cousin, to help him hunt Twrch.
