The Silver Swan

The place for discussion about Hethlin's new adventures.
(snip of great stuff)
But whether for good or bad, the control of the environment will be coming from beings that are part of that dynamic of change, instead of struggling against it. Which to me seems like a good thing.
I really liked your argument, and I agree.
BUT: There is that fine line Tolkien draws between good and evil magic. He calls the former "Art". And the other is distinguished by imposing one's will by force on other things/beings/phenpmena. And I think the disappearance of Art is what is sad. But as you yourself show with your examples, the Elves themselves sometimes strayed over that lines - most of the time with disastrous results.
I like the thought of Amrothos as the representative of the new, rational age of Men.
