+# Valhalla Language
+This repository contains the front-end (parser and
+bytecode compilation) which understands the syntax and
+semantics, as well as doing static type analysis and code
+optimisation. The generated AST is then compiled to
+The execution of the subsequential bytecode
+is handled by the langauge's VM (virtual machine) called
+Brokkr, which exists seperately.
+Valhalla is a set theoretic programming language.
+That's to say, it's based on priciples from set theory,
+in a way that all types are just sets, and hence everything
+is just an element of a set. The language is meant to give a
+new way to think about types, and provides an intuitive way to
+think about types. It may also be used to verify proofs and such
+about set theory.
+The language is a general purpose, but intead of being all OOP,
+or functional, etc., it's just set theory based. From what I've
+gathered, it's not a very popular paradigme.
