Tom Bombadil is obviously a unique character one that i often find myself thinking about. On the topic of Bombadil Tolkien admits "an explanation actually exists" which got me thinking further.
Is it possible Bombadils character plays the role of mother nature "Master of wood, water and hill" as he also witnessed "the first raindrop and the first acorn"
is it plausible he could be the manifested form of nature?
I believe it was also said that unless the power is that of the earth it would not effect him. Is it possible that because Bombadil plays the part of nature he can garner the power that comes from natural elements and in turn things crafted by man have no effect on him or no pull, maybe that is an explanation of why he is able to manipulate the ring.
just a thought but id love to hear what you think-

Yes, or the manifested son of God.
There is a resemblance here to what the Bible says about Melchisedec in the letter of Hebrews chapter 7 verse 3 :"Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God" _________________ G/
