|History of the Ark/Forerunner/Covies/Man (long)|
|Posted By: mrbananas <firstname.lastname@example.org>||Date: 11/3/05 8:53 p.m.|
And now, for mrbananas ultimate theory on Human=Forerunner and the Ark as well as the Origin of the Covenant. It has 4 parts, first is the theorized story/line of events of the activation of the halo and how the humans are really forerunner. Italicized things are usually on the spot pieces of evidence. Next is the Q&A for the Questions that I know would be bound to follow. After that comes counter-counter point where I put down the counters to some of the most common counter points to the human=forerunner theory. And lastly comes the Supporting Evidence to the main theory and the humans= forerunner theory. So buckle your seat belts, it starts off as a story.
The flood are everywhere, the sentinel armies have held them off long enough for the forerunner to build there last resort, Halo. Before the forerunner activate halo, they collect embryos of every species in the galaxy and put them on the ark. Two of every species, Noah’s ark, for the moment, I any going to say that our ark is a giant space ship (not truth’s ship) Since halo, targets and kills based on size, the embryos will survive because they are still just conceived (sperm and egg are both single cell) The forerunner activate the rings and the end of the flood begins.
After this point, everything is automated. The flood start to starve, and the preprogrammed sentinel armies sent out to destroy the flood. The flying sentinel factory goes to a planet, and produces sentinels, the reason why the forerunner couldn't defeat the flood was because they multiplied too fast, and spread too quick, but know that the flood have no more hosts, they can’t multiply any more and so the sentinel can defeat them in war. Once the flood have been wiped clean off of a planet and the sentinels give the okay, the ark flies to that planet and seeds it with the proper species. And so the ark makes this incredibly long journey to each and every planet.
To save time, instead of the ark landing on the planet, it launches a pod at the planet. This pod contains a breeding station, every embryo for that planet, and is fully mobile. Once it lands, the pod, moves to the nearest designated determined point on the planet. It sets up station, and begins to grow the embryos. the pod raises the first batch of embryos until the species can survive on its own, the pod then moves again to the next point on the planet and raise the organisms that belong there (a.k.a. desert life, then artic, then tropical, etc.) And the pod repeats this until every point on the planet is met and reseeding of the planet is finished. The pod then either destroys itself, or meets back up with the ark to get used for the next planet. And so this process is repeated for every planet. Any intelligent animals like elites and jackals, would have lost all there knowledge of prior technology because technology and knowledge have to be passed down by generation.
And so the ark visits every solar system that ever had life on it. Until a supposed error occurs. A data corruption leads to a pod and species misplacement and planet chart error. This results in the elites and prophets being but on the same pod, and set to the planet that the ark was supposed to land on and restart the forerunner race. Instead, the ark lands on earth and the breeding cycle for the forerunner begins.
However, due to this error, the elites and prophets were put on the planet the forerunner embryos were meant to go, there fore on this planet was vast forerunner technology and information that was supposed to educate the forerunners on there past. Instead, the prophets and elites grow up on this planet, and being extremely primitive, could not possibly figure out the forerunner technology to its full extent (like giving an toddler a computer and expecting it to figure it out) and so the prophets and elites, being more different from each other than blacks and whites, were destined to war each other and never see each other as equals. All until one day, by a stroke of luck the prophets figured out one of the records left behind that was a record of the halos, the ark, and what happened to the forerunner. But the prophets made many misinterpretations.
But now we must go back to the ark and the forerunner. The ark lands on earth, a planet that had really been a forerunner wildlife preserve, so the forerunner never lived on earth, only studied animals on it so they never establish any buildings on earth or left and technology on it. So the final probe starts up for earth and its wildlife, with the forerunner embryos have accidentally being added to it. The ark meanwhile hides its self deep with the planet, far under the ocean to a place where only the technology of the forerunners could reach. And so the forerunner would emerge for the pods knowing nothing because the pods weren't programmed to educate them on everything. and with no forerunner technology on the planet other than the ark and the soon to self destruct pod, the forerunner race had to start from ground zero, and because they didn’t even know there names were forerunner, they ended up renaming themselves humans or the course of history. While the humans were still genetically identical to the minds of the galaxies smartest most advanced raced. They know nothing of there vast knowledge, but still had a brain capably of understanding and developing the technology they once made before.
However, during the forerunner breeding cycle in the pod, the pod was instructed to ingrain into the forerunners mind, a way to understand the information left on the planet the elites and prophets were now at and how to operate forerunner technology. This would explain how the master chief and other humans could sometimes operate something like the light bridge or covenant arsenal without really knowing how to though process wise. The Ark, lying dormant beneath the earths surface, would still have a transmission linking it to all of the halos (or at least the nearest one), but this transmission was so advanced that only forerunner technology would be able to pick it up and notice it. This transmission link is what connected the ark to the halos which would enable the ark to send out a signal to the halos for remote activation should some problem arise and the halo not go off. how the covenant found either was they found the transmission signal at the ruins of alpha halo, followed it to its source, earth, the location of the ark, and then from there followed the transmission again to delta halo. Without forerunner technology and records, we would have never found the transmission, or known what it was.
Q & A
Q: What exactly is the data error?
Q: why does guilty spark then call us reclaimers?
Q: Why do you think the sentinels were fighting the forerunners war with the flood, and why the purpose or using halo was to allow the sentinels to kill off the flood.
Guilty spark said all the forerunner died as planned in halo2, explain this?
And now for my second criticizing point. Yes guilty spark did say they all died. Guilty spark also said "There is no choice. We must activate the ring." “The installation was well conceived. It is surely the only way to end the Flood threat." and yet, against what guilty spark said, we were able to stop the flood by blowing up the ring when he said we had to activate it to stop them. So guilty spark isn't always correct. Or at least, mention all possibilities.
But guilty spark clearly says reclaimer and forerunner separately of each other because they are different.
if the humans are the forerunner, where is the technology?
Can you prove that the elites and prophets weren't supposed to be on the same planet together,
-As for the ark being a ship. Will as you can see, the ark being a ship that goes on a journey makes it into a passage that can more easily and understandably get changed into a misinterpretation of something with the words great journey. However, in this theory of my, you could substitute the ark as a ship for the ark as an installation and instead have it that the ark teleported to pods using the forerunners teleportation technology, to there proper location.
-Noah’s ark was a boat that carried two of every animal and protected it from the flood for forty days and forty nights. Well, my version of the ark; was a ship, contained and embryo of every life form, stored these embryos during the time of the flood and kept them safe from the flood until they were eliminated on every planet. And in the end, this lead to the birth of the covenant by accident (god makes covenant with man) god makes error which makes covenant.
-Halo kills based on size as according to GS which always for the loop hole of single cell organisms to survive without making any sort of shield against the ultimate weapon.
-Only humans have ever been called Reclaimers in the game and have been the only ones allowed to activate halo. Human = reclaimer
-"You can't imagine how exciting this is! To have a record of all of our lost time! Human history, is it? Fascinating." GS. Key word "our", possessive from of we, which means, someone + I. Being created by the forerunner, chances are that GS would respectively associate himself with the forerunner. Therefore, human history is supposed to be a record of the forerunners lost time. And it is lost time. And since Reclaimers = humans, this farther establishes that reclaimers = forerunner = human.
-It was suggested/ hinted that the ark is on or located near earth.
-"The Flood are already hard at work repairing your vessel. Its parasitic nature belies the Flood's intelligence." GS. the POA was labeled never going to be capable of flight ever again according to the semi cannon books, and plus you saw the thing was a wreck, it wasn't designed to land on planets, so i don't that even if fixed they wouldn't be able even get it to take off. The only ship being repaired of in fear of being repaired was a covenant ship. Covenant ships are based off of forerunner technology and ships. So GS must have labeled the Covenant ship as your ship (you the presumed forerunner).
-the arguable conclusion of my other theory one size fits all halos in which i stated the only way human and the covenant could exist is due to forerunner intervention. This is arguable, but this can only add additional supporting evidence, but taking it away does no harm to this current theory.
-All other pieces of evidence that support either humans = reclaimers or humans = forerunners or reclaimers = forerunner. There’s too much list them all, but you know them well.
-Please note, you can try to disprove or counter any of the pieces of evidence, but in order to attack the theory itself you would have to disprove all evidences that human = forerunner, or all evidence suggesting the ark is on halo, or all evidence that micro organisms could survive, in order to do anything. You can't take out one support and say the tower has collapsed, you need to take many more to collapse this tower. And please, for the love of god quote the entire post just to make a one sentence response.
