: I assumed that S'pht knowledge of the Jjaro would be similar to human
: The author of the Hard Stuff terminal is actively questioning the S'pht
: Regarding that terminal in Aye Mak Sicur, you might find this discussion
Thanks for the link and the constructive criticism. Also, I already knew the patterned Jjaro logo contained a map of Aye Mak Sicur. ;)
I didn't really think of the whole god thing, but now it makes complete sense. The terminal about Pthia and Yrro in M2 was really a sort of mythical tale, much like our Bible or the Ancient Greek stories such as the Iliad, Odyssey and the story of Perseus.
However, this idea would force us to throw out all kinds of previous information gathered from terminals as mere possible stories, as it renders a large swath of the terminals in M2 and even Marathon Infinity to be unreliable sources of information.
On the other hand, we read about Pthia both in Aye Mak Sicur (Terminal 2) and in Terminal 4 of Six Thousand Feet Under..., and given the way Pthia is mentioned in Aye Mak Sicur, it seems the Six Thousand... terminal gave a pretty accurate description of the truth; thus, the Six Thousand... terminal should not be ignored, and given that it's reliable, the other seemingly "mythical tale" terminals describing the Jjaro should probably be considered reliable as well.
Hope this doesn't confuse you too much, 'cause I might not have provided as much resourceful information as I probably should've, and my arguments are probably a bit thin.
