QTNA for today..."You have the gift of foresight"... Can't Post

 Hello again, LOTR Movie Board!

I'm stopping in again with another Question That Needs Answering (QTNA) -- this is s reprisal of a series hosted by that wondrous poster of olde, hobbitlove, who was known for wondering about many things!

Today's QTNA consists of several questions, actually, and they all have to do with Elrond and his gift of foresight...

1. In film-verse only, how do you explain Elrond's gift of foresight? Galadriel has a mirror she can look into -- but Elrond doesn't have any kind of prop. Do the films give us enough to go on to explain how and why Elrond can see things that haven't happened yet?

2. Why did they bother to include Elrond's foresight in the films at all? What purpose does it serve?

3. It seems to me that Elrond needs some glasses for that foresight of his -- after all, he told Arwen that Aragorn would not come back, and he did. Was he using his gift of foresight when he said that?

4. Was Arwen's vision of her son also a gift of foresight? Does that mean you can inherit it? And if she did, why doesn't she see anything else, like something about Aragorn's future or her own?

5. Any other musings along these lines? I foresee a good discussion or at least I hope so! Thanks in advance to all who choose to lurk or reply!

**Do you have a 'question that needs answering?" PM me with your questions, and I'll be glad to post them in a future QTNA...which will appear again precisely when it means to or as RL permits!**
