Re: Split off from “Welcome Tolkiengnostic”

Hey, I just realised that the discussion was hijacking Tolkiengnosis welcome topic. Sorry, I didn’t notice that yesterday evening.

I moved those posts.

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

By the way - this is an interesting synchronicity - last week Miguel told me that he found an interesting podcast called Runesoup, in which Becca Tarnas was interviewed on the subject of Active Imagination - the Jungian term for Imaginal Journeying (or simply ‘meditations’) based on Tolkien’s mythos...

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

Well, that would be a good thing! Thanks for the links, I will have a look. Btw - maybe I was a bit too dour about Markus’ dissertation. It does a great job documenting the history of spirituality based on Tolkien’s mythos and putting it in a context. But what it misses is that it doesn’t say anythi...

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

Also I kind of stumbled into Markus Davidson’s thesis on Tolkien spirituality which is why I’m here. I can't find anything online... :hmm: That's because his surname is spelled Davids e n, not Davids o n :D - he's from Denmark. Here's his page on the Leiden University site What's this thesis about ...

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

I understand the need for keeping some of the board not for the public. But I would be curious to learn about others experiences in communing with the Valar. Great! I'll get back to you asap about that. When I was reading the Silmarillion the emanation of the Valar as the thoughts of Eru Ilúvatar a...

I admit to being curious about what was interesting to Mildir about the timing of his account's being activated...
As far as I am concerned this was just a matter of me being rather pre-occupied with other things, so that I had neglected my duties tending to the forum somewhat ... sorry :blush2:

Re: Gondolin music

In fact, I was being ironic... :) Ah, that explains - I often don’t get irony ... I'd like to take this opportunity (...) No need to thank me ... I’d be happy if it works out. It’s sometimes hard to figure out what’s the best thing to do, with people having different temperaments and backgrounds sh...

Re: Gondolin music

Everything I say in the above message is not factual, but unverified personal gnosis . It lies in my heart and no one has to believe that anything of it is real . Oh, it’s not about “real or not”; it is about whether or not it’s (claimed to be) factual (scientifically, objectively falsifiable). I a...

Those posts will haunt me forever! :sorry:
I don’t think it’s that dramatic ;)


Sorry, I haven’t had time yet to move things around. Will do as soon as I have the opportunity.

Re: Gondolin music

Some of them might hurt the feelings of deeply religious members of the forum, if there are any. FYI - this is a gnostic forum. If people’s feelings would be hurt by saying things that go against dogma, then this forum is the worst place for them to be. That is, also apart from whatever you wish to...

Re: Gondolin music

No, Lúthien. Mildir simply pointed out the typo, and Dave explained why he sometimes makes the same mistake in writing. My reason for quoting Mildir's correction on Nost-na-Lothion was not at all concerned with the typo. Rather, my argument with it was that I assumed that he acknowledged it in his ...

Re: Gondolin music

And by the way: I think you wanted to write "Nost-na-Lothi o n". :) I didn't know, I just thought Nost-na-Lothian might be a form accidentally treated as canonical by Lúthien, that is why I took the liberty of flagging the typo. Of course I don't expect anyone's posts to be typo-free, I can only im...
