On Weird Waking Thoughts

I have strange thoughts as I wake up. This morning was no different. I’m writing this, just so it’s down.

The Ents.

What sort of metaphysical philosophy would they believe in? Do Ents have an afterlife? Do Ents believe they have an afterlife? Are they doomed to walk Middle-Earth forever, and in time be forgot?

In Middle-Earth Elves have physical immortality but no spiritual immortality. It’s reversed for humans — no physical immortality, but spiritual immortality in the Halls of Mandos.

Ents? Dwarves? I have no idea.

I wonder if Tolkien ever considered the matter.
