Celtic Mythology:

‘Is there a way to know everything?’ Fionn asked him.
This was a question that Finnegas had asked once too and was the very reason why he now lived next to the river Boyne.  It had been told by the druids of old that living in a still, dark pool in the shade of the overhanging hazel trees was the Salmon of Knowledge.  It was as result of eating the nuts of these magical hazel trees that the salmon had acquired all the knowledge of the world.  And so it was that, according to prophecy, the one who would eat the salmon would gain the knowledge for themselves.   Finnegas had been living on the edge of the river for several years now, attempting to catch the salmon and gain such wisdom.'
