      It seems to me that the most likely etymology for _inwisti_ would
      derive _wisti_ from some latter-day counterpart of the QL root GWIDI-
      (PE12:103), whence Qenya _'wiste_ 'weft', as well as _'Wirilóme_
      'Gloomweaver', a name of the Great Spider. If this is the case, then
      the literal meaning of _inwisti_ might be something like
      *'mind-weaving(s)' or *'the fabric of the mind'.
