Rice Rice Baby: "Tom Bombadil is immune to the effects of the One Ring, for a variety of reasons. For one thing, I think he’s a forgotten Vala (arch angel) who up and moved to Middle-Earth when no one was looking… and he did this during some incredibly ancient age.
But unless you’re Eru Himself (God Almighty) you literally cannot destroy the Ring except by throwing it in Mount Doom. It doesn’t matter who you are. Gandalf is very clear on that. If you want an explanation… well, consider that Sauron somehow inherited much of Morgoth’s power (also called Melkor) and Morgoth was the original Satan character in this universe, setting himself up as a rival Creator with a rival Creation — although everything he created (Orcs, Trolls, Dragons) was ugly and perverse.
At Elrond’s Council, the idea of “Why don’t we just give it to Bombadil?” is raised. And the problem is that Bombadil is TOO immune to the Ring. The Ring has a mind of its own, and it would just get lost or slip off Tom’s finger, and someone else would find it and wander out of the Old Forest with it. And then Sauron would get his hands on it. Literally."
Rice Rice Baby: And the theories i read was that Tom Bombadil was actually represent Tokien himself. Its like he was just want to throw himself in the story as a character. And that character is above all of the creature. But yet, he play no part of changing the story and/or take the stance against Sauron. So, he just wanna be there...almighty and shit, yet useless
BAD_WOLF__ in reply to Rice Rice Baby: I heard that as well, that Tom Bombadil was like Tolkien inserting himself into the story. I also read he was the physical embodiment of the Ainulindale the song of creation. The amount of theories and hints out there is so huge I dont think we'll ever know. But I like that.
Something else interesting that I read is how the fall of Ancalagon the black was brought back in the war of the ring. Earendil slew Ancalagon with his flying ship. And near Cirith Ungul Sam used the light of Earendil to help defeat Shelob. I just had my mind blown when I read that.
