Everything that happens in Arda [In reply to] Can't Post

is presaged in the Song that created the world. Nothing in Middle Earth is inexplicable if you remember that Eru has foreseen everything. That Eru would make it possible for a strain of immortality would be forever in the blood of HIs children is a lovely thought. It is why the Elves long for the GIft of Men and men eventually come to understand it. So when Aragorn says he is giving back the gift and tells Arwen that he will see her again (beyond the circles of the world there is more then memory) he feels in his death the stirrings of life everlasting -- the great gift of the One to men that came to them through Melian the Maia.
