Yes I can

Tolkien was asked specifically by someone if Tom was Eru/Illuvatar. Tolkien's response is as follows, "There is no embodiment of the One, of God, who indeed remains remote, outside the World, and only directly accessible to the Valar or Rulers.- The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien No 181, dated 1956.

I too share your reservations about Tom being a Maia. Indeed, I do not believe he is either a Maia, nor a Vala, nor a traditional Nature Spirit. All of these explanations fall short in my opinion. That is why I recommend you read my work Wink

Not all who wander are lost
