In Response To: Re: S'pht perspective on sentience (Godot)

: I think you are confusing some stuff.

: The terminal you are referring to is this one.
: https://marathon.bungie.org/story/volunteers.html#M2.11.2.1

: Here the original S'pht (1000 years before the events in Marathon) discover
: that the Pfhor are sentient without being bonded to any machines (unlike
: themselves).

: For a 1000 years the S'pht are enslaved by the Pfhor.

: What the enslaved S'pht think of humans is never stated. There is only one
: terminal where a S'pht communicates to us directly.
: https://marathon.bungie.org/story/volunteers.html#M2.05.2.1

: It basically tells us to find the lost 11th clan so that they can be whole
: again.

: Cheers
: Hamish

Ahhh, I see. Thanks for clearing that up, it was starting to get confusing trying to make sense of that. The fact that until meeting the phfor, they believed sentience required being bonded machines is still interesting, however, considering their creation myth. It implies that Yrro and P'thia may have been at least somewhat mechanical. Perhaps a similar situation to durandal and thoth, or durandal and the cyborg.
