Who is Odin?
OP: July 28, 2020, 02:29:39 PM
To distract you guys from the autismo that is happening above and perhaps glean something useful I will start another topic.
I always wondered what Odin actually represents.

Old Norse Óšinn (whence Icelandic Óšinn, English Oden), akin to Old High German Wodan and Old English Wōden. From Proto-Germanic *Wōdanaz, derived from Proto-Germanic *wōdaz (“rage, manic inspiration, furor poeticus”), from Proto-Indo-European *weh₂t- (“to be excited”). Compare Old Norse óšr (“rage”) and Dutch woede (“rage”) and woeden (“to rage”), Latin vātēs. Related to English wode.

Woden = wod+en
En being an old English ending referring to “to be made of” as in gold-en lead-en etc.
So woden is he who is made of wod.
He who is made of rage, manic inspiration etc.
This “Manic inspiration” and "rage" I think refers to awareness. Thus making Odin be “he who is made of awareness“ “He who is consumed by awareness”.

What do you guys think about this?

Copy-pasting etymology and asking a question isn't starting a thread it's begging for information do some research posit a  Theory and generate discussion this is absolute trash

Who is Odin?
#4: July 29, 2020, 09:51:45 AM
Lol, you really want to argue that much? I said ok as in okay.
Is this even the right direction?

Odin is the only one who is able to travel all of the nine realms. His horse is the one who carries him, named Slipnir , “slipper” "sliding" (slipper). as if slipping in between the cracks. 

Slipper has eight legs which likely refer to the eight directions in the norse medicine wheel, eight directions being: Asgard, giants home, dwarf home, fire home, hel home, Wind home, elf home.

Odin carries a spear which is likely a spine, leading to Yggdrasil also being a spine.

Odin's companions are the ravens Hugin "thinking" and Munin "remembering “
“Hugin and Munin fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin, that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Munin.

O'er Mithgarth Hugin and Munin both
Each day set forth to fly;
For Hugin I fear lest he come not home,
But for Munin my care is more.”

Odin cares more for remembering than for thinking.
The two ravens are said to bring Odin information from all of Midgard. Thus implying the connection to the collective unconscious.

The two wolves that are said to follow Odin are Geri and Freki ("greedy" and "voracious"),
“Geri and Freki the war-wont sates,
the triumphant sire of hosts;
but on wine only the famed in arms,
Odin, ever lives.

Freki and Geri does Heerfather feed,
The far-famed fighter of old:
But on wine alone does the weapon-decked god,
Othin, forever live.”

It seems that Odin is followed by greed and desire to consume.

In conclusion.
1 Odin is god of awareness. Only awareness can travel all realms (possibly chakras) with the help of /trough the spine.
2 Awareness can collect information through the help of “thinking” - contemplating and “remembering” ideas like memories leading one to another.
3 Awareness is followed by greed and desire to consume which implies that being aware of something does consume it in a sense.

I like this thread, haven't dug into Odin at all...

Odin's companions are the ravens Hugin "thinking" and Munin "remembering “

Hugin and Munin fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin, that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Munin.

Hugin - flies away... (below) lost in thought. The ego. Can go out on it's own. (above) future scenario where the loss of consciousness occurs to the world.
Munin - (below) buttresses Hugin, reflections allows you hugin to more straightly fly, and fly further. (above) most people are pretty poor at remembering - it's even been written here many times that much has been lost and virtually everything is unknown even passed a couple hundred years (plus that idea that some god/entity destroyed the akashic records).   

The spear is the s(word) and the spine. It's what is thrust out into the physicality.

Slipper is a mare - the tamed and ridden subconscious.

Woden - man is literally wooden without his birds.

Still up to c. 1400 it was often used in the specific sense "the young of a bird, fledgling, nestling, chick," and of the young of other animals (bees, fish, snakes) and human children

Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, "These infants being
suckled are like those who enter the kingdom."
They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"
Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the
outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make
the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female;
and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a
foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the
kingdom.

I believe that Odin was a magician who was later deified, just like many other deities. I don't really understand the whole deal with sacrificing your eye though. Obviously the point is that to gain something you must sacrifice something in exchange. But why?

Old Nick quotes:
Quote
"4 also represents the hanged man or Odin or one who has sacrificed everything in order to gain everything

If you look at the picture of the hanged man on the tarot card it's an upside-down 4"

Quote
"this made me lol a little.... Zeus, Titan, Osiris, Ham, King David, Jesus, Jupiter-Ammon, Jove, Yahweh, Jehovah, Adonai, Saint Peter, Buddha, Aten (Aden or Adon), Gaden, DAN(Dan sounds like the guy in accounting), Odin (Woden), Nibiru, Marduk, and Jedi (Jeudi, Djedi, or more commonly Jedidiah), just to name a few...."

Another quote still related to this thread.

Quote
"youre not far off..Tyr is the "guarantor of justice" in norse mythology and despite only having one central myth(wonder what happened to the other tales of the god of nobility and justice who sacrifice his arm to save the world) is a big deal in the norse pantheon. He stuck his arm in the mouth of fenrir, whose very existence was a threat to all life)
     Prior to the Viking age, the Northern Germanic people had a similar set of gods and goddesses. They were more primitive, however, and not as fleshed out. In that pantheon, Tyr was perhaps the chief god, and went by the name Tiwaz. He was one of the war gods, and seemed equivalent to the Roman Mars. Like Tyr, his primary characteristics were honor and justice and courage. By the time of the Vikings, however, the centrality of Tyr/Tiwaz was supplanted by Odin and Thor. This tells us something of the different cultures. In the Germanic world of the early and mid-100s, battle was crucially important. Courage and bravery in war was something deeply foundational to a man’s life.
   Loki — the wily trickster — was father to three great and terrifying beings: Jormungand(the creature from hemlock grove for those who watched) — the world-encircling serpent, Hel — the death goddess, and Fenrir — the great wolf. The other gods had a terrible foreboding about these offspring of Loki, and took action to keep them at bay. They threw Jormungand into the ocean, relegated Hel to the underworld, and kept Fenrir in Asgard so they could keep a close and watchful eye on him. Even when the wolf was just a pup, only Tyr had the courage to feed Fenrir. The beast grew and grew, however, and the gods decided they could no longer keep him in their home. Knowing the destruction Fenrir would wreak were he to be set free to roam the world, they decided to try to bind him with various chains and ropes.
   To get Fenrir to consent, the gods would tell him that these bindings were merely competitions of strength;(appealing to ego to conceal bondage, sounds familiar) they even clapped and cheered when the wolf broke through each attempted constraint. Desperate for a solution, the gods sent down word to the dwarves — the greatest craftsmen in the universe — to create something that not even Fenrir could wrestle free from. They forged Gleipnir — a rope which was made from the sound of a cat’s footsteps, the beard of a woman, the roots of a stone, the breath of a fish, and the spittle of a bird. Since these things don’t exist, it’s futile to struggle against them
   When the gods presented Gleipnir to Fenrir as yet another challenge of strength, he grew suspicious. The rope was too light and silky; how could it possibly hold him? Something was afoot. So he insisted that he would not be bound unless one of the gods placed a hand in his jaws as a sign of good faith. Tyr — knowing full well the ramifications of his decision — was the only god to step forward. Fenrir was bound, and of course took Tyr’s hand as retribution. From thence on, Tyr carried a permanent disability and scar which spoke of his bravery for the sake of the entire world.
  You’ll remember that Odin sacrificed an eye for the sake of gaining wisdom. It was in many ways a selfish pursuit — sure, others benefited, but he was primarily seeking knowledge because he had a ravenous desire for it. Tyr also sacrificed himself physically, but it was largely for the sake of his community.(sacrifice for selfish ends to attain esoteric power took prevalence over sacrifice for the good of the many, hence the all but eradication of tyr from norse mythology) Yes, Fenrir’s binding obviously gained Tyr security as well, but ultimately his motivations were directed towards helping his peers as well as the humans, who resided below Asgard in Midgard.
    Just as Christians look to and draw strength from the sacrifice of Christ, Vikings (and even modern followers of the old Norse religion!) looked to Tyr in much the same way. His example imparted courage and bravery. If Tyr could sacrifice his hand — something crucially important to a war god — then surely even common folk could make small sacrifices for the sake of their kith and kin.
     Serving other people is easy when it fits into our schedule and our talents. Far more difficult is it to serve our community when we’re tasked with doing something we don’t enjoy, or that we aren’t good at, or that we know will bring some amount of financial or physical pain. And that last one is the toughest, isn’t it? Physical sacrifice hurts in a very literal way, and can have lasting physiological (and even psychological) consequences. And yet it’s been a moral imperative that men have shouldered for thousands of years. Cavemen would risk their lives to go hunt dinner, explorers and frontiersmen traversed great spans of sea and land to find a better life (and many didn’t come home), and today, first responders — the vast majority of them men — put their well being on the line every day. And in times of danger and disaster, average men continue to put their own lives on the line to protect others.
    Opportunities to make physical sacrifices do not always arise in our generally safe and secure modern world, but a man should be ready if/when such an exigency arises. Tyr certainly didn’t want to lose his hand to Fenrir that day, but when the community was in dire need, he stepped forward. And in that one remaining myth is the essence of the service to self component of the "right hand path" Something tptb dont want anyone focused on and certainly not emulating."

Matthew 6:22

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

It's your 3rd eye (grass said 7th chakra right)? It's ONE eye, and the other was violently removed (sacrificed). Also he probably worked for the illuminati.

But the group(s) commonly referred to as the 'Illuminati' aren't the bad guys.

There are two groups, one for magic and the other for science. The ones who work towards the existence of magic are the Illuminati. The ones who work towards 'science' dominating things and killing off magic (and those able to use it) are the actual 'bad guys' in this situation.

This is where understanding of what the World Wars were about becomes useful. It was a war between magic and science. It's not like it ever ended (nor started there) but that specific moment in history is one of the most recent big physical conflicts related to this.
Knowing that Hitler apparently had an interest in old relics and 'alien' technology, you can probably guess what he was fighting for (and what side). Once you know what side he was on, you will know what the 'Allies' were fighting for.

You want an example demonstrating how the World Wars was a magic war? Look at the Wonder Woman movies.

But the light blinds anyone who truly wishes to see. Darkness stimulates the pineal gland. Remember what the original state of things are?

You only need one eye to see. Odin gave up part of his physical vessel to gain knowledge of something greater.
