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.
Wow, thank you! :D
It's the first time you say you like something I write, I'm touched! :blush2:

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? No no, I only found a bit strange that you had moved these posts to "Mildir's gnosis" when there wasn't really any reference to me or my gnostic experience... :D Thank you for...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Maybe "Not Specified Further" would be a more appropriate section for this discussion: I've mentioned a personal experience in one line of my last post (and only to relate it to Davidsen's theory), I don't think this makes the last seven posts "Mildir's gnosis". Davidsen's thesis is a subject of int...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Despite their fictional basis, fiction-based religions are genuine religions because the activity and beliefs of which they consist refer to supernatural entities which are claimed to exist in the actual world. As such, fiction-based religions can be contrasted with fandom which, as a form of play,...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

reading it will teach you nothing about gnosis or Tolkien. Well, I'll give it a look all the same (when people mention Tolkien in the same breath as spirituality there is always something interesting). Thank you for the information. :) Well, show me! There is this organization: https://it-it.facebo...

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: What's this thesis about ? It’s not something that is talked about a lot among Tolkien enthusiasts, and neither among spiritual seekers. Times are changing. You...

Re: There is no easy way to tell it, but there's something you need to know...

And I'm totally uninterested in convincing others that that was not the ordinary climate, because I don't need to believe this, I've had the unique opportunity to know this. But it is not through me (directly) that any of you - I think - will have the same opportunity. So, please, don't try to convi...

A bank wanted to auction the house where what is left of my family used to live. Not because of me, but because of debts which another person - who, sadly, was the owner of that house - had incurred. They gave us an ultimatum: we should leave the house, we had few months of time to do it. In that pe...

Re: The Odes of the Airs

Note: In Baladhren the phoneme /sh/ does not correspond (exactly) to the English /sh/. It does not represent the sound [ʃ], but rather the sound [ʂ], which is a more "deeply swishing" sound. The phoneme /ph/ does not correspond to the English /f/. In order to reproduce this sound you have to pronoun...

Re: The Odes of the Airs

This poem has also been translated into Baladhren (i.e.: a language which - according to those I identify as memories from another life - is called Valarin or Baladhren and is mainly spoken by spirits of might called Valar or Baelain by a people I cannot but identify as the Eldar). Some friends advi...

The Odes of the Airs

This poem is written in Vinyaquenya, the Quenya which - according to those which I identify as memories from another life - is today spoken in a land called Valinor (or Balannor) by its inhabitants. I've always thought it describes the feelings of a Maia dancing with the Súruli, the Spirits of the A...

Re: There is no easy way to tell it, but there's something you need to know...

Speaking of interesting things - I learned of this forum interestingly as well. Several years ago, a friend had pointed out Calantirniel's website to me (Elven Path) and I eagerly signed up to it. Years went by, and I never heard anything more about it. Then, this year, on my birthday, I received s...

Re: My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

So, that night I went to bed without having done my homework and that caused me enormous anxiety. To tell the truth, I was desperate. It wasn’t the first time it happened, and this time - I seem to remember - there was even going to be an oral exam. I should have studied for it, but I didn’t. I coul...

Re: Songs not just mine

And then there was another kind of songs: the ones I read in the books by J.R.R. Tolkien (which I discovered only at 16) and, somehow, I recognized . When I saw the lyrics, the melody - often along with images and feelings - slowly came to my mind, as if it were just hidden in my memory. In a coupl...

Songs not just mine

[...]You have to know that, since I was only 6, I used to sing those that my mother called “my songs”. She has always assumed that they were invented songs, because the lyrics were, well, weird. I didn’t sing in any known language, people around me often said I sang “in gibberish”. Deep down inside...
