Ok, just to reiterate from before, I HAVE NOT read the Tolkein trilogy. I can only go on the movies.
In Two Towers when Gandalf comes back, there’s a part where Aragorn calls his by his name and he seems momentarily confused. Then he says. “Gandalf, that’s what they used to call me. Gandalf the Gray. I am Gandalf the White.”
So I’m wondering exactly what the difference is between the two.
The only analogy I can think of that comes close to explaining this to me is to think of the two Gandalfs as computers. Gandalf the Gray beams back to the Mother Ship after defeating the Shadow Flame, them comes back as Gandalf the White. So the Old Gandalf is gone, the new one comes back, with the information he had before, but Gray and White are NOT the same, like if you were to transfer data from one computer to another one; a computer than can parry arrows and axes with his staff and has nice straight white hair…
Anyway, I was wondering if someone knew the differences and similarities between Gray and White. Similarities: same knowledge. Difference: White has his badass factor upped a notch. Are there more?
