I was reading the Marathon forums, trying to learn some more of the back story and found this while reading the CORTANA LETTERS: http://marathon.bungie.org/story/cortana.html#6
Here is the excerpt;
"That was surprisingly easy. Pretty lax security around here, for all the talk. They will be helplessly chasing me around their nodes for the next millenium at least. At least there will be some joy in tormenting this other entity that seems quite "trapped" in their excuse for a network. Although, for some reason, it does seem to have an obsessive preoccupation with my mother. Strange.
At any rate, I found this "message" in a relatively archaic databank and thought some of you might find it of interest. Then again, I'm often either bemused or startled at the items you find interesting.
I'm still not sure what it is he saw in you.
Hard to say whether it's been tampered with or modified; you never know with these things:
Entry: 97 - SC1C
In a relatively brief period of time, the achievements of SolCore had resulted in an economically stable, technologically mature, rapidly expanding empire of eight human worlds. Advancements in technology arrived at a faster pace than the most optimistic scientists could have ever envisioned. Unexpected contact with indigenous human populations on four "lost colony" worlds led to a frenzy of research as archaeologists, theologians, astronomers, and evolutionary biologists competed to offer an explanation for the startling discovery. Many accepted the findings as proof that their privileged civilization must surely be the most advanced in the universe. Others eagerly anticipated future interaction with intelligent "aliens". The fear of not being the only sentient species in the universe was forgotten in the giddy excitement of a new era for humanity.
No one was prepared for their arrival.
No one expected this.

You brought nothing to this world, and we will ensure you bring nothing out."
Anyway, this would tend to lend credence to what GS hints at, and that the Forerunners were either human, or that they were populating the galaxy with humans.
