The II Primordial man, as Ymir, Yama is displaying the creation of
man, the breaking up of the material giant into the more spiritual
man, also by the breakup, illustrates the nature of divine society,
As in Yama destruction divides itself into distinct qualitatively
differing beings, new beings, from one to many. Then from Primordial
Man/Yama/Ymir to Man/Laws of Manu/Rigsthula, to have the rita or log
of the god who broke it up, thus giving a reason for the
destruction/killing of this being into something qualitatively
different. IMO, which was the gods intentional of being.
