Important Background Information:
Bionicle Gandalf the White radiates both power from the strengthened bone density of his biological nature, and power from the infinite lubrication and anti-sticking qualities of his mechanical nature all due to Fluorine! The negative ion of fluorine, the fluoride ion, is capable of bonding to many metals producing halide salts, the most valued being the sodium and stannous fluorides. When consumed in small quantities the fluoride ion from these salts can strengthen bone and teeth by combining with the bone apatite crystal lattice. Additionally, the element Fluorine can undergo reactions to form poly fluoro molecular chains, valued for their lubricating and anti-sticking properties.
AND IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH… Fluorine spectral lines HAVE been detected as light emissions from Cool Extreme Helium Stars. This fact alone, perhaps, ending forever the controversy that the Istari are Maiar or Angelic Star Beings. (Gandalf is of the Istari or Wizard Clan.) This is why Gandalf’s brain radiates the color of Fluorine Gas and why he wears the Mask of Light! So, in a mythological, alchemical, chemical, mechanical, AND cosmological sense, my Bionicle Gandalf the White is truly
TOA OF FLUORINE!
Facing away from us, the Fluorine color of Gandolf’s brain can be better appreciated!
Face-on this color can only be seen through the eye openings of his mask.
“Darkness took me. And I strayed out of thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and everyday was as long as a life-age of the earth. But it was not the end. I felt light in me again. I've been sent back until my task is done.”
~ Gandalf the White, The Two Towers, Movie
“Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.”
~ Gandalf the White, The Return of the King, Book
