Additions:
Axani are **Commandments of Eru**, which all Faithful must obey. They are included in the [[http://wiki.lindefirion.net/GondorPoliticalOrganization Laws of the Seven Tablets]] given to Númenóreans by Eönwe, Herald of Manwë. But whilst the //únati// constrain the feats possible to Incarnates and Ainur alike, the axani are only advisory. Some //axani// are there to make clear what behaviours are wrongful in and of themselves, and likely to have negative consequences for the individual in the long run. Others, the laws of the Valar themselves rather than of Eru, are practicalities of the Valar’s rule over Arda and the beings who live in it. But as it is (all but explicitly) an //axan// itself never to impose one’s will on the Free Will of another, the Valar themselves would never use compulsion even to prevent a person from breaching an //axan//.
~1) **No Mind can know that which is not in it**. All true knowledge ultimately derives from memory of experience (previously forgotten or otherwise), deduction and extrapolation from existing knowledge, or from an external source. There is no knowledge without a source. No experience is ever utterly lost from memory, though it may be lost from conscious or easy reach. The minds of Incarnates and the object-memory of things retain all their experiences. Any mind with knowledge that is certain, and which it cannot have known through normal means, must have received it from a source that does possess that certain knowledge. No part of the "future" is there, for the mind cannot see it or have seen it: that is, a mind placed in time. Such a mind can learn of the future only from another mind which has seen it. But that means only from Eru ultimately.
