In Norse mythology, Odin carries around the severed head of Mímir, which foretells the future. In order to drink from the Well of Wisdom - to gain the knowledge of the past, present and future, Odin had to sacrifice one of his eyes. By sacrificing one eye (external sight), he won wisdom (internal sight; insight), and become a consulted oracle. Today Odin's eye sits at the bottom of the Well of Wisdom as a sign that the father of the gods paid the price for wisdom.
