Odin made his sacrifice for knowledge. But he didn’t seek knowledge just for the sake of knowledge. Process for the sake of process – this isn’t Odin. He initiated processes to accomplish results. The result was to obtain knowledge in order to rule. He was tasked with a mission due to the circumstances brought about by Tyr’s defeat and his subsequent loss of rights. Odin had to take over the operational reins. And he needed this sacrifice in order to receive the algorithms of governance.
