When Alexander the great reached the town of Gordium he found an ox-cart tied to a pole with a knotted rope that seemed to have no end. It was prophesied that he who untied the knot would conquer Asia. After struggling to untie the knot Alexander cut it in half with his sword and then indeed went on to conquer Asia.
