Re: The Flood

In Response To: The Flood (Jamirus99)

: Well, a while back I sent an email to the story page with my theory about the
: Flood. Unfortunately, it hasn't been posted yet, and maybe never will, so
: I'm going to try to outline for everybody here what I put in my two
: emails. Of course, those messages are gone, deleted for some reason or the
: other. Lets just start with a quote from our buddy Guilty Spark, in the
: Library: 343 GUILTY SPARK: "You can see how the body's been
: transformed by the genetic restructuring of the Flood infection. The small
: rangers carry spores that cause a host to mutate. The mutated host then
: produces spores that can pass the Flood to others. It is insidious and
: elegant. As long as any hosts remain, the Flood is virulent."

I started a thread a while back based on the same quote, and I think I've come to the conclusion that the infection forms are carrying the spores. The spores may be the "true" Flood, and they form a symbiotic relationship with the infection forms, or perhaps the term "Flood" refers to this symbiotic partnership.

I also agree with your interpretation that 343GS is glad to see that the Flood have survived to reproduce - it's the literal interpretation of what he said, and requires no sudden change in subject by him. It may not seem to make sense to us, but then we don't really understand 343GS's motives.
