BPL commentary: high forehead. the condition of Guru will considerably affect the outcome
"... from Arudra to Punarvasu, a startling change in mental development.
In Punarvasu, the native is possessed of profound intelligence,
He revels in abstract thought
He may be also a poet of high attainment, expressing a fire and vitality in his verse
He will, however, be only moderately successful by worldly standards during his lifetime

Tolkien's philological (2) fabrication of languages songs, epic tales and genetic lineages which generated an extraordinary body of knowledge about a mythical history (2). Much of his need to philosophize the Germanic folk roots, as he himself told the tale of his creativity, was impressed upon him during the horrendous death scenes (2) of trench barbarities during World-War-1. Even before the onset of the horrors of Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler, Tolkien began to sense that the higher spirit which guided the Germanic peoples through their time in history (Zeitgeist) was endangered and needed both promotion (Guru) and protection (Chandra).

1971 BBC Interview:
"Q: Did you intend in Lord of the Rings that certain races should embody certain principles: the elves wisdom, the dwarves craftsmanship, men husbandry and battle and so forth?
T: I didn't intend it but when you've got these people on your hands you've got to make them different haven't you. Well of course as we all know ultimately we've only got humanity to work with, it's only clay we've got.
We should all - or at least a large part of the human race - would like to have greater power of mind, greater power of art by which I mean that the gap between the conception and the power of execution should be shortened, and we should like a longer if not indefinite time in which to go on knowing more and making more.
Therefore the Elves are immortal in a sense. I had to use immortal, I didn't mean that they were eternally immortal, merely that they are very longeval and their longevity probably lasts as long as the inhabitability of the Earth.
The dwarves of course are quite obviously - wouldn't you say that in many ways they remind you of the Jews? Their words are Semitic obviously, constructed to be Semitic. Hobbits are just rustic English people, made small in size because it reflects (in general) the small reach of their imagination - not the small reach of their courage or latent power.
Q: This seems to be one of the great strengths of the book, this enormous conglomeration of names - one doesn't get lost, at least after the second reading.
T: I'm very glad you told me that because I took a great deal of trouble. Also it gives me great pleasure, a good name. I always in writing start with a name. Give me a name and it produces a story, not the other way about normally."
