ok so yes i know that there re loads of theories as to who he is and hat his part in the world is but one i havent heard... probably for good reason havent read any of the books for a long time is as an avatar/aspect type of eru just keeping a spare eye on his children.. its not something i expect answered really but just another theory as to the eldest

oh and another question how did the hobbits come to be i know where they came from and such but i dont remember any reference to hairy footed midgits in the music of eru and the valar and well the valar have created life eg dwarves. so if not in the music then how although it doesnt really say anything in the music about giant eagles but you still get them.. so probably just something that wasnt mentioned
