Re: The thread about literally nothing OO
"Ravens aren’t only birds of gore and carnage; they’re also exceptionally intellectual birds, and Odin is an exceptionally intellectual god.

This aspect of the connection is indicated by the names of Hugin and Munin. Hugin (Old Norse Huginn) comes from the word hugr,[9] “thought.” Munin (Old Norse Muninn) comes from the word munr,[10] which is more difficult to translate, but can encompass the concepts of “thought,” “desire,” and “emotion.” (The two ravens’ names are often translated as “Thought” and “Memory” in popular works on Norse mythology, and “Thought” is quite accurate, but “Memory” is at best imprecise and rather arbitrary.) The two names therefore can’t be neatly distinguished from one another; they overlap to the point of being virtually synonymous.[11] This reflects the fact that, in the sources, Hugin and Munin don’t have distinct personalities. They’re a duplicate form of the same underlying idea.

More specifically, their names refer to their being concrete visualized forms of the “thought” of Odin. In the Norse worldview, the self is comprised of numerous different parts that are semi-autonomous and can detach from one another under certain circumstances. These detached parts are frequently imagined in an animal form that corresponds to their underlying character. In the case of Hugin and Munin, they’re Odin’s intellectual/spiritual capabilities journeying outward in the form of fittingly intelligent and curious birds that also resonate with Odin’s roles as a battle god and death god."

I found the excerpt above to bring immediately to the mind's eye that of two circles converging, perhaps one with a complex pattern within it but a circle just the same. This is also interesting in that Odin is a one eyed God. Both names denote similar things (Huginn and Muninn). Huginn generally is taken to mean Thought, while Muninn is a more complex concept not as easily defined but could be taken to mean the subconscious. Kind of sheds new light on the OP poem, also taken from this article but known to me for some time.

its perfectly safe :) ^^^
 Quoting: Huginn


Huginn is a image of the word Hugur that means thought.
Muninn comes from the word Minni, meaning memory.

Like for instance að vera muninn means to have a long memory.

Óðinn "Leggur auga sitt að veði" and gets to drink from Mímisbrunnur in stead.

Að leggja að veði means to give someone else access to it, or risk it, like for instance if i would say i could catch a comet with my hand and put my eye as veð for it, i would probably end up one eyed.

Mímir is the god of deep wisdom and brunnur means well.

So its not given that Óðinn is actiually one eyed.

The "one eye" means using pineal gland instead of 2 eyes.

Thank you for both the insights

I was hinting at the latter comment but the first was super enlightening!

Nice to meet you both!
