Re: Why 343GS thinks MC should know what Halo does

In Response To: Re: Why 343GS thinks MC should know what Halo does (Ciarán)

: Firstly, I'd like to point out that I'm basing my info on the ebook version
: of FoR, which doesn't have the last chapter (when they arrive at Halo I
: believe), and so I'm not sure if Cortana explained there what she did.
: Anyway, perhaps she was only looking at some of the symbols in the rock,
: and there's other symbols that explain the other things I mentioned.

I think the age of the rocks was stated earlier in the book. There's a timeline for FOR on the HBO.bungie.org site that also talks about it.

: Secondly, I should remember to put down in writing the other things I am
: thinking :-) My thoughts followed on from an earlier post I made that
: talked about the rocks/asteroids being part of the firing of Halo. The
: pulse goes out first, wiping out sentient life. Then the rocks are sent
: out to seed the galaxy with life again. The rocks also contain a warning
: about the Flood, and what to do if they ever turn up again, including the
: location of the weapon that can stop them spreading. Perhaps the
: Forerunners couldn't be sure that they had permanently stopped the Flood,
: and if they're like the Vang that's a pretty good possibility. It would
: make sense then to leave information for the new inhabitants of the
: galaxy, just in case the Flood managed to live that long.

Very nice thoughts. I think it might be time for me to resurrect an old theory of mine. I'll post it in a new thread.

: So, the Halo could have been fired 100,000 years ago (or more), wiping out
: sentient life at FTL speeds, then the asteroids were sent out at non-FTL
: speeds, and seeded life throughout the galaxy, with the asteroids arriving
: at different planets at different times, sometimes successfully
: engendering sentient life once more - possibly by enhancing existing
: non-sentient life on the planet. There's no-one waiting for the Reclaimer
: (except 343GS maybe) in the sense that there's no immediate threat from
: the Flood.

Not that anything on this forum is really original, but you might know that I may have been the first (at least in recent history) to suggest that asteroids were used by the Forerunners to reseed the galaxy. So I whole heartedly agree with your theory as being viable.

: Just some more (hopefully clearer) thoughts :-)

: Ciarán.

Thanks for the clarification.
