THE RING'S ELBOW ROOM

Dreamed 1997/8/17 by Chris Wayan

Sauron's golden ring with glowing inscription.


I'm planning to cast a golden ring, an exact copy of Sauron's in THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Millions read Tolkien, and so the conviction lies dormant in all their unconsciouses that a golden ring with a certain Fëanorian inscription will give its owner vast and dangerous powers. And since belief creates power, such a ring may really work, now that Tolkien has created psychic and cultural room for it.

It'd be hard to make--the goldwork involved in that inscription would be incredibly fine, almost microscopic, and finding a gold alloy that hard and heat-resistant... not easy.

But possible, now. Because reality is rubbery. We can stretch it. Fiction creates belief, and belief creates... elbow room.
