1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: *Time* is not one but many. *Space* is many. *Colors* are many. on: May 04, 2008, 07:38:21 pm
This is just a thought, but I have another *many bubbles* theory. Couldn't the Orz be calling us *many bubbles* because we are multicellular? It seems to me that the true Orz (i.e., the force behind the *fingers*) are likely some form of sentient energy. The notion that the Orz we know of are but *fingers* of some greater power suggests that said power appears to be able to exist across multiple spectrums of existence simultaneously. To me, this suggests that the Orz are not "flesh and blood" creatures, but something else. Now, what this else is "made of" is open to debate, but, just maybe, *energy* would be our own "best-fit" for describing the Orz.

I know, I know, this is all just idle speculation, but there are no easy answers when *fingers* begin to punch through to our region of space from *below*.
2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Does anyone else pity the ur-quan in the end? on: February 05, 2008, 07:25:11 pm
I think that we may be reading too much into Ur-Quan history and culture. The Ur-Quan had *always* been a fiercely predatory race, to the point of near uncontrollable instinctive rage in the presence of pretty much any carbon-based life. The Ur-Quan at the time of SC2 don't need to be inspired by ancient history to be the ultra-violent aggressors that we know them as; it is who they are, conflict is ingrained into their very genes. We can only speculate as to the true cultural significance of their respective Doctrines, but we can safely assume that it, at the very least, gives their murderous rampages a sense of some higher purpose, and that alone may have been enough to sustain their faith in the Doctrines for many thousands of years.
