I don't think so, not necessarily. As an intuitive person myself, I often have moments where I am quite confident about my intuitions, even when I can't exactly articulate why. I've learned that certain kinds of intuitions, even when difficult to articulate, are actually based on sub-conscious assimilation of larger patterns that my conscious reasoning can't fully identify. Elrond has had millenia to learn which kinds of intuitions to trust, so I could see him being very confident in those intuitions.If Elrond was intuiting this, would he not have been slightly more tentative?
Perhaps, though I don't think his Ring would just give him more knowledge about the Valar directly, like one of the Palantir might. It seems much more likely to me that Elrond's Ring might amplify his existing wisdom and intuition, thus adding to the confidence that he places in his "intuitions."What do you think about the hypothesis that Elrond's Ring was somehow involved in his knowledge that the Valar would not receive the One Ring?
