Can a normal human cross the sea and enter the Immortal Lands?

0

The Undying Lands are a very blessed region, functioning as the celestial equivalent of Middle-earth. The ancient schism between the elves who chose eternal life, and wisdom and those who chose death made the journey there very difficult.

All successive descendants were bound by the choice of ancestors, and those who chose the path of death had the freedom to marry, have children, and grow old in Middle-earth without ever visiting the Undying Lands again. Only mortals could make the journey west, where they would be welcomed with open arms, and then back to the wilderness. The name given to this boon comes from the Valar themselves: the Gift of the Valar.

In Elvin Vessel traveling to immortal lands in rings of power

Sam, Bilbo has traveled to the Undying Lands (with invitation!!)

Only in very exceptional cases can a human being be granted such a privilege; for example, when Frodo traveled through the perilous regions of Mordor to Mount Doom, where he threw the ring into the flames to extinguish it for eternity (with the help of Gollum), thus sparing the universe endless darkness of Sauron’s dominion.

Samwise, Frodo’s closest and most trusted companion, Legolas, the elven warrior from Mirkwood, and Gimli, the one and only dwarf ever documented to be given such an honor, were just a few of the other warriors. of the community to receive favor. of the Valar and be allowed to spend the rest of their nights in the tranquility of paradise. However, have you ever thought about what would happen if a mortal attempted to enter the Immortal Lands without such a favor? Let’s find out!

Hmm!! Not easy to answer

Clearly, this is a deep and nuanced topic, with many advocates on both sides of the discussion. While Tolkien delved into the ideas behind the Undying Lands in books such as As the Silmarillion, he rarely codified a set of rules for every potential scenario. Most people believe that no mere human could sneak inside such a sacred shrine.

Manwe

The deity of this world, Manwe, who created everything, can see anyone trying to cross the ocean and knows everything there is to know about the oceans. Even though Manwe seemed to have no idea who these poor people were and why they were risking their lives on such a perilous journey, he conjured up mighty storms to bring the ship back to the beaches of Middle-earth. Manwe would not wish to jeopardize the pristine state of Valinor by introducing taint or corruption to the outer realm.

A fate worse than death

Even if a mortal managed to pass the watcher, enveloped in the permanence of the elves and disguised among them, it is generally accepted that he would not last long in Valinor. This is due to the fact that without the blessing of the Valar, their physical and spiritual selves would be unable to find solace in the environment.

The Tree of Valinor

Some people believe that if their spirit were to enter the Immortal Lands, it would flourish and prosper in the Sacred Land, however, their flesh would shrivel and deteriorate rapidly, forever trapping them in their own suffering. Essentially, they’re the same as Ghouls and Ringwraiths.

As we see in the movie The Lord of the Rings, these mortals will eventually turn into a helpless and miserable species, or even worse, a wicked, embittered and possibly violent species. Eventually, Valinor would notice them, and then they would either be sent back to where they came from to heal themselves, or, if they posed too much danger, they would be wiped out.

SO!! I would advise not to go there without an invitation guys!!

Immortal earth still power rings

Ar Pharazon is just one example of a human who attempted to seize the blessing of the Valar through violence and enter forbidden areas without consent; sadly, he and his soldiers met a horrible end.

The people of Valinor are aware of all this, and they see it either as a crime of treason or as a cunning move on the part of either Melkor or Sauron, depending on what age of Middle-earth it is in. product. Therefore, no one should desire this. woe to no one, even if they somehow managed to get there.
