* The best most comprehensive theory that also helpfully deconstruct others. Seriously, it's that good. [[http://whoistombombadil.blogspot.com/2013/01/tom-bombadil-answering-three-questions.html?m=1 He's the spirit of the Music of Creation.]] This would explain
** His powers: He's the spirit of the song of creation, his song is powerful.
** His unique weakness: He's weak in the East where the Discord of Melkor reigned strong because the two musics is utterly incompatible.
** His immunity to the ring: The ring is concentrated essence of Melkor's discord, the Music and Discord was described as incompatible but cannot cancel each other out.
** His indifference to the ring(ie: he has no desire to keep the ring safe): in the beginning, the Music of Ainur was sung, then the Discord of Melkor was added and finally Eru added his own note that destroyed the discord completely. Eru's note created the races of Middle Earth, which is the only thing that can destroy Melkor completely. As the Spirit of the Music, Tom knew this and act accordingly.
** "The First, the Fatherless, and the last to fall": this is where the Music and the Fire meet: both the Music and the Fire are Eru tools of creations, both can claim the title of "Eldest". Should Sauron win, the Discord win and the Music would be destroyed forever.
** He is uttered obsessed with his wife, who is a river spirit and of the element that retain the most of the song.


Added DiffLines:

** Gandalf called himself the servant of the Flame, yet his attitude toward him is annoyed and dismissive. Also it's called the Flame '''Imperishable''', it can give life to creation, not vice versa. And Sauron wanted to rule the world, not destroy it. All in all, the Music Theory was much better. The Music theory was also the basis for the Fire anyway.

* [[FanFic/MyImmortal Lord Voldemort.]] This would suggest that Middle-Earth is, in fact, the limbo where Voldemort was sent after his defeat, and the fetus-like form his fragmented soul took eventually evolved into a small man once Voldemort started repenting his crimes.

Seriously... Tolkien travels back in time {{Terminator}}-style, because that's possible where and when he is from, to see the birth of his obsession, only to find that it hasn't been invented yet. So he writes Literature/TheHobbit to keep himself busy. When he realises how easy it is to exploit the market, he uses all those old clichéd concepts thrown out by his contemporaries; thus was born ''the Lord of the Rings.'' He even based the concept on an RP he had played himself.

At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

to:

Double points once we realize that this part of the narratve was most likely compiled from the notes of Frodo himself. At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

to:

* I'm generally quite skeptical about WMG, but this one is eerily plausible. Let's turn to the description of Frodo's deciding at the Council of Elrond:

An overwhelming longing to rest and remain at peace by Bilbo's side in Rivendell filled all his heart. At last with an effort he spoke, and wondered to hear his own words, '''as if some other will was using his small voice.'''
'I will take the Ring,' he said, 'though I do not know the way.'

At the very least this theory might explain why the Ring didn't make a trick like one it did woth Isildur and Gollum - that is, slip and hide.

**^ This. Frodo cursed him under the Ring's influence, and the curse followed through.

* It's actually that the makers weren't planning on stealth. The sword shines with a blessed light that hurts orc eyes: facing an eleven host with such weapons would be like trying to fight with blazing spotlights pointed at your face.

[[WMG: The Lord of the Rings films are a prequel to ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens]]'' and Snoke is Gollum[=/=]Sauron. ]]
In this universe the ring was never destroyed. Sauron used Gollums body instead of his own when reunited with the ring. He rose up and developed space technology. He entered space and the Dark Side of the Force is actually flowing from Sauron[=/=]Snoke, creating the Sith. ''"It's true, yes precious, it is!"''

* But during the journey through the [[TheSilmarillion Helcaraxë]] their ears got so frostbitten that [[{{Squick}} the points snapped]] [[BodyHorror right off]]. [[LamarckWasRight Lamarck's theory of inheritance of acquired characteristics]] took care of the rest.

(A few hundred years later, he finally realised that he needed to return the Silmaril in time for the [[TheSilmarillion Dagor Dagorath]], so he popped back to Middle-Earth in his Seventh incarnation, this time posing as his own, slightly clownish 'cousin', who was apparently a dab hand at bird calls...)
