Where do you think elves came from?

Postby Forestress_of_Wisdom on Sun May 30, 2004 1:58 pm

I believe that elves were born from men and we somehow magickaly aquired pointy ears and special abilities. In my past life I believe I was an elf. I still believe it to this day. We came from the earth and were made like men but with certain more special gifts and thoughts and talents.

Saaay... according to his profile, this is the *only* post that Forestress_of_Wisdom has ever made outside of Sinfest.

I feel strangely honored somehow.

It is possible during the evolution of man that a pocket of humans could have developed pointed ears through ritual (Like the coneheads) or purely by evolution (Like the pygmies).
The same can be said of dwarves or hobbits, because there is already a race on earth just like that - the pygmies.

OH! You were serious... I thought you were just goofing on my poor little hardly-used forum, here, Forestress! :D

My friend Kai, who hosts my *regular* Elf Life forum, also on the same board conducts some discussion areas on dreams and metaphysics. You're going to get mostly BunnyThor-style witticisms on most of the Keenspot boards. ;)

My reply to your question would be that, first of all, elves are different things to different people. The elves in my comics reflect more the "other people hidden in the forest" sort of elf of some old tales. They are secretive and shy of humans, but indulge in similar human vices and failings (such as drinking heavily, dancing, etc)

The sort of elf you're referring to is a more Tolkien-ish elf, which to my mind he melded somewhat with the concept of faeries (which do not exist in Middle-Earth). This is merely a matter of semantics, though, as many diferent words for the faerie folk have more than one meaning, in many different countries.

Some old tales, for instance, have elves that someone now might be more likely to call a gnome.

Also, early tales did not tend to speak of the magic of these creatures as a good thing, but as sort of an evil used against man. I don't think this is the kind of creature that you're alluding to, either.

But those kinds of creatures do represent something in the human heart; when we feel different... when we feel like outcasts, and can only express ourselves through special talents that others do not seem to posses... we do in fact "become" these elves... we are the "other creatures" of those old tales that invite humans to visit other worlds.

That's pretty deep for a summary, Carson.
I probably would've just said "Hot!"

Erm-hrm. Actually...

... An Elf comes from a Self that has lost its' 'S', thereby evolving from Self to Elf. So in essence, all Elves are 'S'less Selves.
