[quote=“D-Unit”]I agree with most of your theory Geoffrey especially with the part where you say that the Ancients uploaded themselves into the Sestren system and about the Divine Visitor being an Ancient himself.
Actually I think he really was a rebel of the Ancient Age. The rebels were most likely Ancients themselves. One of the Ancients that built the towers could have had second thoughts with their plan and joined the rebels without the others knowing it.
Geoffrey I don’t think that the Heresy Dragon itself is the impurity. I believe it was activated/altered by the impurity, something similar to a virus. An impurity in the will of the Ancients? the Divine Visitor itself. He could have polluted the Ancients’ consciousness that resided in (the) Sestren.
About their bodies being frozen for thousand of years I have a different theory: In PD Orta there’s some interesting information in Sestren’s memory cells. I suppose that Gash said this(I haven’t played Saga so I’m not sure):
?We’re not really alive. We’re just being forced to live.?
?The Ancients’ spirits are making sure of that.?
That’s why I think that the Ancients wanted to download themselves into the humans that are still alive. Remember how the Heresy Dragon changed Lagi into a dragon? When the Ancients downloaded themselves into humans they could have changed them into something more evolved (back to their original form).[/quote]
Yeah I also believe the Impurity was a virus that precipitated the Heresy dragon’s activation. Whenever Sestren shouts out, “Impurity detected”, thoughout its memory orbs, it is referring to that virus. But I don’t believe the Divine Visitor was the said Impurity.
You’ve woven together some interesting ideas that I think you could easily write up into a theory. Your data stream idea certainly caught my attention as a familiar line of thought.
Here’s what Gash said about the Tower in PD Saga: “You heard it from Craymen? He claims the Tower will restore this world. If the Tower ran our lives, there would be no war. But we’re not really living. Just being kept alive”.
And later he says, “I’m sick of being kept alive by the ghosts of the ancient ones”, which is intriguing.
PD Orta either refined the translation into the closest Japanese approximation, or subtracted the English style and vernacular. Beats me; I’m no translater. However, I find Gash’s words more spontaneous in PD Saga.
The Seekers may have been aware of these ancient spirits or ghosts and gives us a reason as to why Gash would say such a thing. The Seekers would know a great deal indeed after researching the ancients for two whole centuries.
Of course, it also answers the question of why the Towers didn’t wipe out humanity completely; the ancients needed host bodies for their eventual return.
Nice idea. I didn’t think of that.
