Re: My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

It is in any case a wonderful and fascinating read.

Re: The Odes of the Airs

oh gee, I probably like more than just this one. But this isn't Facebook with like buttons ;)
Anyway, I am serious. I just love poetry!

Re: Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

(...) Davidsen's thesis is a subject of interest for everyone, in my opinion... Well, I think it is rather of interest to sociologists or theologists, but certainly not to Gnostics - in the same way as that you won’t become a better author if you would take a course about the history of literary cr...

Re: Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Hi Mildir,

I’m not sure if you mean that there are other posts by you re. Markus’ thesis other than the ones in this topic? Of so can you please point me to them? Then I can add them to this topic (if you want).

Re: The Odes of the Airs

Quite interesting stuff, though I can’t comment on the linguistics, being familiar with Sindarin only.

I definitely like the Vinyaquenya poem! The Valarin text is just too unfamiliar for me.

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

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

I moved those posts.

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

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...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

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...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

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 ...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

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...
