personifying the mountains [In reply to] Can't Post

Since I`m not a machine, the only way to take in nature, is through my sense, unlike a computer, which could only reduce the information it receives into facts. What Mr Tolkien is describing to us, with these texts, are a time, without the hindsight, and certainty of science. In fact he`s taking us back to Norse gods, and a
time where everyone knew, through there Scandinavian animistic mind shapes, that it was giants, throwing the boulders around. Lets face it, you only have to take us out of our own cosy environment, and turn the lights off ...and we soon start to revert back to our true nature...
