Rings are circular bands of precious metal worn on fingers, toes, ears, or even through the nose. They have many different uses and can symbolize many different things throughout history. They have been used as symbols of fidelity, authority, and social status. A ring may contain an ornament or be simple in design. If it has a special meaning to you, consider a ring made of precious metal. You might be surprised at the number of ways rings can be used.
Sauron’s Ring had native power, but it was also sentient. It could call out to other creatures subliminally and eventually kill its holder. When cut from Sauron’s hand, The Ring could also shrink or expand to fit various finger sizes. It could even slip off the finger of its current bearer without explanation. The Hobbits wore the Ring to protect their children from Sauron, but eventually had to relinquish it.
A sequel to the original film The Ring is expected, but the plot diverges a bit. While the original movie revolved around a killer videotape that requires the owner to pass along to other people, this remake is more violent and has higher stakes. The characters are also more violent and the villain has more power than the original film. The main antagonist, Samara, has a tendency to use violence and threaten people, even as a way to prove his loyalty. Ultimately, Samara is killed and a mysterious woman takes his place in the world.
The concept of rings originated in the 1870s. Key contributors to the conceptualization of rings include Dedekind, Hilbert, Fraenkel, and Noether. The first rings were created as generalizations of Dedekind domains and polynomial rings, which were later applied to geometry. Their use in geometry, analysis, and other mathematical fields was a boon. It was not until the 1930s that rings began to become more widespread and influential.
Since ancient times, ring fingers have been used to represent love and romance. The ancient Romans believed that the vein in the ring finger connected with the heart, so rings hung around the hearts of lovers. In the 15th and 16th centuries, lovers exchanged “posie” rings, which were usually inscribed with love poems. In the modern era, rings have become more common and are a symbol of betrothal and fidelity.
As with abelian groups, ring objects can also be studied mathematically. For example, left-artinian rings are those that have no strictly increasing or decreasing infinite chains of ideals. The same properties apply to left-Noetherian rings, which are defined by the Hopkins-Levitzki theorem. The most common ring that is studied in this way is a group of integers. The ideals of an integer in a ring are referred to as endomorphisms.
In addition to the symbolic value of a ring, the ring can be used to symbolize the wearer’s status. Wearing a ring is said to “shift” the wearer into an unseen realm. While the wearer remains invisible to physical beings, he or she is highly visible to unseen beings. It is also a symbol of piety and generosity. It can also symbolize friendship.
