Invalidating my theory...
Posted By: Wado SGDate: 4/9/05 4:12 a.m.

In Response To: Re: Remember what Bungie asked? (Zak Anderson)

: Hmm, i thought it was refering to gravemind

This thread answers the question, more or less: http://forums.bungie.org/halo/archive19.pl?read=562809

After re-reading that thread, it appears my theory that Forerunners are the Equivalent of Angels and some Forerunners were the equivalent of Fallen Angels, is cold. Although I still employ that theory in my Fan Fiction story universe, it appears it is not correct.

Here is the just of it, Eagle 117 wrote the following...

Many have found uncanny similarities between the Forerunners and humans, but itís seems a bit obvious that theyíre not exact. The Forerunners are described by the Covenant as techno giants; knowing and implementing a level of technology thatís far beyond anything either the Covenant or Humans have an original understanding of. 343 Guilty Spark refers to the Forerunners as such in Halo 2, but he never refers to any human as a Forerunner. The Covenant description of the Forerunners, as well as the description given in the Covenant Primer, matches a particular group of angels. They are a high order of angels and carry the title of the Watchers; also known as the Grigori. They resemble men in appearance, but are taller than giants. The Watchers were sent by God to instruct man in the beginnings of civilization; however, many became fallen angels after they descended to earth to teach man forbidden sciences and started cohabiting with mortal man. The Watchers who cohabited with mortal man spawned a new race. These offspring were the Nephilim. In Hebrew lor, the Nephilim stands for giants of primeval times, fallen angels (demons) themselves. One of the reasons, often not discussed, for the Biblical flood was to rid the Earth of these half-breeds. Let me put it another way, cause for the Biblical flood can be traced back to the fallen angels, their leader in particular.

To which this and the rest of Eagle 117's post was replied by Eric Trautmann:

...wow.

So, er, warm.

Amid the relevant citations about stuff I've said, however, you missed something fairly important: that the "who wears a halo" thing was designed to point to some tidbits hidden within the books, that shed some light on the characters and situations within.

I will say that the stuff relating to the Gravemind, Arbiter, and some of the very Halo 2-specific stuff is cold. Some of the other stuff, definitely on the money. :)

The question/hint refers to some subtle stuff hidden in the books for fun, not a hidden outline for the future of the Halo storyline, just FYI.

But cool stuff nonetheless.

-E

Eagle 117 tried to clarify this part about the Forerunners by asking:

Is it just me, or did you not identify the Forerunners, by name, in that list of chill?

But Eric replied:

Sigh. No I didn't identify the Forerunners, by name, in that list of chill. And I SHOULD have. :P

Which is either clever misdirection due to NDA or it pretty much is confirming that Forerunners equaling Fallen Angels is NOT true in the Halo Story.

The latter could be used as testimony that my theory stated in this thread is not correct.
