Tolkien calls created beings who possess fear "incarnates" that is, fea and hroa amalgamate into a spirit incarnate (Morgoth 349).
HROA's mission is to become the single recognized community for improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of outsourcing as part of an overall HR service delivery strategy.
The author investigates Tolkien's writings on the fea and hroa (roughly, soul and body) of Men and Elves, examples of free will exercised by Elves and incidents of providence acting through Men and Hobbits, the nature of Iluvatar's foreknowledge and the lesser foreknowledge granted to the Ainur, and the differing ways in which the souls of Men and Elves are bound to the world and their attitudes towards bodily death.
In the revision of the myths that Tolkien attempted after The Lord of the Rings, he wrote that the spirit (fea) of the Elves progressively consumed their body (hroa), and thus they "faded," until they became a mere memory of their spirit (MR 219, 427).
