    Let go what?

      ring of power from LoTR, implication is to let go of power, or perhaps the pursuit of power, if OP wants to clarify.

        But if knowledge is power then you give up learning?

          This is exactly what the problem is, I don't want to stop learning. So what is the solution?

            Find a balance. Power corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Be like the wise sage: the one who isnt swayed by ambitions of power or oppression. Share knowledge in wisdom

            I also struggle with interacting with others but i learn. When i was younger i thought i could just learn science and stuff and that would make me successful. Interpersonal relationships are the last thing i learned. Quite a shock to me. Everything is magic now if you catch my drift

            knowledge would only corrupt you if you used it for purposes that do so, don't you think?

            I believe that a healthy balance is possible, that you do not need to hoard what you know, or use it to extreme self serving purposes. Or to show off in excessive displays of your knowledge

            Maybe not zero desire, but enough to build a decent life, not excessive, just enough, and to also have people generally not mess with me.

            I have been taken advantage of too many times in my life to let it keep happening, but I think that's a healthy boundary, not an excessive display of power

            in the books i think it's Gandalf who says during the council of Rivendell that Tom would be a bad ringbearer because he basically just wouldn't care about the ring at all and would probably end up losing it while fricking around in his forest. He also willingly gives it up when returning it to Frodo in the books, after disappearing (implying he put it on) and we know that even one short use of the One can make a major impact on an individual (see: Sam sailing to Valinor as all other ringbearers had)

            The first use undoubtedly has the most impact: its like heroin. Some people are immune to heroine or morphine or opiates of any kind though and just get sick. Im one of those people

            I knew some kids in school that read it 20 odd years ago because their dads told them about it. Then they made the movie. I never read it but i read about it and watched the videos. I think tolkein was a very smart and dedicated man

            anyone who liked the movies at all should definitely read it because it's fricking awesome and way different and better. i really like the movies too. they did a really good job for what necessarily required quite a bit of cutting up.

            remember Tom acknowledges the power of the ring, even wears it for a moment, but denies it any power over himself so much that he calls it a silly little thing

            Such is the lust for profit and greed. A silly, fickle little thing.

        idk the ring of power for frodo seems more like letting go of possession. like it possessed him and in the end at the last moments succumbed ultimately to the rings possession of him. he had to be exorcised by force via gollum.

          this is basically what happens to create the ringwraiths: they wore their rings of power for so long that they faded from the physical world and became spirit slaves of Sauron.

    The concept of the ring as a cursed object that compels its owner to keep it would later become the defacto way cursed objects are handled in all of fantasy

      same with dwarves, elves, hobbits..... tolkein almost too based

      he handled magic in such a good way. i also always loved the implication that his works are not a fictional world but our world many ages ago. i think he had such a great understanding of the wonder and joy of nature and the human spirit.

    The rings compulsion is magical. People who think it's "letting go of power" are being too philosophical. No one is actually thinking "the power of invisibility is going to make me king."

      The only people we see use the ring in the lotr movies are the hobbits. Hobbits don't have any natural ability to fight so the ring's power manifests as a natural flight instinct - as in fight or flight. If a man or elf were to have the ring of power, it would reflect their own natural abilities. Hobbits are known throughout the entirety of middle earth for their evasion and stealth.

      Sauron isn't pursuing Bilbo during the Hobbit and he uses it a bunch of times that are very helpful including his escape from underground when he first gets it

    I could handle its power, but ultimately I’d conclude it needed to be destroyed because there’d be no other sensible use. I could only defend it for so long, but I’d realize eventually I would lose it and someone would come to use it against me. The only way to prevent that would be to destroy it. At the same time because it’s said no one could destroy it, I’d realize that if I could destroy that which no one can destroy then I would be the most powerful being in existence when I destroyed it. I would also destroy it just to spite everyone who says no one could go through with it. Pure irrational contrarianism would end up being the ring’s undoing.
