Nice one. I think this has something to do with the thermodynamics thingy.




I thought of this too the first time I watched the film. Gravitation and all that kinda stuff.

Thanks guys...

And reminds me of a tale that exists in my own surroundings. Aldarion and Erendis touched me deeply, and though set in a myth, has a lot of significance. It made me cry, the first (and so far last)...

Physics and RoTK??!

Hey... I have this weird paper on my physics class, something about the "physics concepts and principles applied" on the Return of the King. Included are the flaws (with respect to the laws of...

I always thought Tolkien uses the fair-imaged people aiding the other fair people, and I couldn't imagine some "squinty-eyed southerner" riding to Gondor's aid, or any "good kingdom" in any case....

Isang gagong sagot:
Elrond did not choose to take up any royal title because think of it: every king, from Finwe to Gil-Galad, had died violent deaths.

And who would Elrond rule anyway? Some...

Entrophy, my dears. It's a universal law, and it (I think) applies to Tolkien's world as well. But that doesn't mean there's always a defeat of hope, because if there is, then ME and Arda would have...

I can't quote, since I don't have a book (it's probably just under my bed or something), but Cirdan has a beard and has very long and white(?) hair. And for Elves to have beards they have to be...

I don't think there was a union between Elves and Men in Numenor, particularly because after a certain time there came jealousy of Men to Elves and their immortality. As for "beauty", I daresay...

I beg to differ with Boromir, but Saruman's Voice isn't from the Enemy. Neither Morgoth nor Sauron gave Saruman that skill; maybe it came from his being a Maia/Istari. And in lieu with Raynor, I...

But do they go in the Halls of Mandos--the separate space for men? I mean, they were men, only they were bewitched and perverted by Sauron.
