Abstract

Odin was a Norse God. A master of wisdom, magic and poetry, and protector of courageous noblemen in war, he could strike the enemy blind, deaf, and impotent--he was the god of the slain. Odin wore a golden breastplate and helmet, carried a magic spear, and rode an incredibly swift, eight-legged horse named Sleipnir. Odin sacrificed one eye to drink from the Well of Knowledge. On his shoulders perched two ravens, Hugin and Munin (thought and memory), who overflew the battlefield by night and reported to Odin by day. Little did Odin know that his paradigm for learning about the world around him would help stimulate a fundamental change in training technology and methodology in the late 20th century.
