Re: Discussion split off from ‘Gondolin music’

P.S. The whole "signal arising from the data" paradigm was how both T-e and IV got built from the ground-up, originally. It's just that because most of the Legendarium data is not quantifiable, scientific techniques either could not be used at all, or could only be used in pieces, so it was made usi...

Re: Gondolin music

It seems very unfair that science has the power to make many people think that something I talk about is not possible when science itself cannot explain why it should not be possible. This surely causes me frustration. This is the way I see modern science: it rules out everything it cannot explain,...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] It was my inability to perceive the things you accept as True directly and primarily, [...] that caused the cognitive dissonance. You are saying you are unable to perceive the existence of the Eldar as I have described them to you, is that it? Perception of the Eldar is certainly possible whe...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] Looks like I've definitely overestimated people's proclivity to take it for granted. Most likely. You also ran up against one of Dave Woosley's (my real name) axioms, specifically: "I believe nothing; I perceive everything" - or everything within the range of my five sense, shamanic, and cogn...

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 . There, you see. Had you done this in the beginning, or at least after you saw my earlier messages in the Mars thread (upon which I...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] Incidentally: though the initial version of this piece was made directly as a result of that meditation, I actually went on to create this longer version prompted by Dave having plans to create a narrative video about Nost-na-Lothion. I still think that’s a great idea, maybe we should pick th...

Re: Gondolin music

Preamble: This thread for sure needs a topic split, but until that takes place I shall continue posting into it. So, since I can travel to far places [...] without dying first and using special techniques, doesn't this give me an evolutionary advantage? Every Elda could do it. They traveled to remot...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] That is exactly why I asked you: what can we do? What can I do to give evidence that there is a connection with Tolkien? I'm thinking about it myself. Is there anything I can provide you with? I will do everything possible to provide you with elements which may give some. I have to go to a me...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] I never said you should accept them, I only asked (in my first post) to consider that they may be true and to be so kind, if you can, as to consider the idea that I'm not lying. Lying is not at issue here - at least for myself. Clearly, you've had some profound experiences. The issue I have i...

Re: Gondolin music

Nilwen, Torion and Arphin said it to me and they are three of the Eldar I speak of. They said that he was a lightbringer, that he was temporarily reincarnated in a human body, like me, and that he had a task to carry out. It had been assigned to him by the Council of Elders of Valinor. If what they...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] Sorry, Elaran, but I think you are missing the point: just because a word of the Quenya I know has the same form as a word of Tolkien's Quenya ( or Qenya), it doesn't mean it has the same meaning . For example, the word mandë means "well" (adv.) in Tolkien's Qenya, "doom/fate" in Tolkien's Qu...

Re: Gondolin music

[...] I thought so, that is why I told you: *Nost-na-Lothian is not in the corpus. It has a typo. Tolkien writes Nost-na-Lothi o n. See here: http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Nost-na-Lothion It is indeed "Nost-na-Lothion" in the foundation document "The Quendian Calendar & Festivals.doc". You should ...
