Ecce breviarium cosmologiae legendarii I. R. R. Tolkieni. Omne caput, cum oporteat, nomina alternativa sequuntur, et nomina Latina plus minus aequivalentia in parenthesibus (una cum nota interrogativa si ambigatur disputeturve), et descriptio brevis.

  • Timeless Halls (Caelum) — Domus Eru Ilúvataris (Dei) extra tempus sita. In eo caelo similia sunt, quod extra fines universi exstant, quodque nihil formae physicae eis est. Non nulli disputant ea finalem Hominum destinationem esse, sed etiam possibile est ea momentaria domus eis esse ante Ardae recreationem. Liquet enim fabula Adanelis Homines ad Ilúvatarem regredi; dubitatur autem, an fabula in canone enumeranda sit, licet Christophorus Tolkien quondam eam ad libri The Silmarillion appendices adiungere voluerit.
  • The Void, Avakúma, Kúma, the Outer Dark, the Eldest Dark, the Everlasting Dark — Regio abstracta et deserta e nihilo constans, quae extra Timeless Halls, Ardam, omnemque Eäm esse dicitur. Potest fieri, ut inter the Void, quod extra Eäm, et the Void, quod Ardam circumeat, distinguatur, sed clare non definitur. Constat nihil ullius potestatis visve intra the Void adhiberi posse. Melkor in the Void obiectus est post Bellum Irae, ante autem finem mundi regressurum esse fama eum habetur.
  • (Universum), quod nomen Eä, –äe latinizamus — nomen Quenicum est universum valens, eo modo atque Ainus eum animo finxerant. Verbum ex Quenico verbo esse significante derivatum est. Eä est igitur "Mundus, qui Est," contra "Mundum, qui Non Est" (the World that Is et the World that Is Not). Ergo sequitur, ut omnia extra Eäm, inter quae Timeless Halls Ilúvataris, nihil formae materialis habeant. Ainus, entes angelici e Timeless Halls ultra Eäm sitis orti, eam "Regnum Parvum" (the Little Kingdom) appellant, nam omnia, quae Homines videre possint, minima, cum menti Eru Ilúvataris (Dei) componantur, sint. illud verbum est, quo Eru Ilúvatar universum in exsistentiam tulit.

Tolkien Studies (West Virginia University Press) 2: 161–170  In The Fellowship of the Ring, 'Three is Company' Tolkien indicates that Borgil is a red star which appears over the horizon after Remmirath (Pleiades) and before Menelvagor (Orion). Larsen and others note that Aldebaran is known as 'the follower' of the Pleiades and is the only major red star to fit the description.
