i’ve been reading the silmarillion. man, tolkien did some intense world-building. i don’t think i’ve ever read anything with such a detailed world, and i’m not even finished yet.

Didn’t really liked the ending, as I felt the person making the entry was pushing for his theory to be correct. For the most part it was well written, theories simplified for everyone to understand and there were also faults in old theories that were addressed.

As for the last of the theories, yes the indigenous people of Mexico [Mayans and I would argue other groups like the Toltec and Aztec, even if they did take from the Mayan civilization(I doubt the Toltec did, however)] are the exception, I was glad he acknowledged that much; even if it did severely cripple his theory.

I know what you mean. Everytime I see how many books I yet have to read, I’m always reminded of a quote my teacher had “So many books, so little time”.

You’re into Indian culture? I too want to do some research into India somewhere along the road.
