Notes

  1. The term óre, despite being translated as "heart", does not have the same meaning as in English: it does not correspond to the physical organ, memory, reflection, emotion, feelings or positive impulses. The óre is a conscience or instinct that advises or warns the Incarnates to proper courses of action. (Cf. J.R.R. Tolkien, "Notes on Óre" (edited by Carl F. Hostetter), in Vinyar Tengwar, Number 41, July 2000, p. 11-2)
