Haven't we been through this before?
Repetitive discussion is an art form. Galin, who now calls himself “Ando”, is good at it: he and I have engaged in it repetitively over the years. I beg we cut him some slack; besides, I too may want to reëngage a discussion in this way myself in some later thread: so might you, my friend whom I greatly respect. :D

And what's "Galin" anyway? Some sort of Elvish invention? Dwarvish? How's it pronounced? Questions that don't need answering, in my opinion.
Galin: is that an Sindarization of Galen the Physician? Or is it (as seems more likely) a Sindar word I have failed to interpret properly?

No, but I found a very loose connection between us: "In order to unite his theories about the soul and how it operated within the body, he [Galen] adapted the theory of the pneuma." And I highly recommend this:

I think I liked it 'cause it seemed like it could be both Sindarin (Neo-Quenya Nalindo maybe), or a name from Dvergatal.
