Why it must be ripped from somewhere else? Maybe Fred had a fungos in his feet and got the idea from it...  Roll Eyes

Well ripped was the wrong word. I think many of the races were inspired by outside influence (not a bad thing) but I think that the mycon were purly creative.

So, let me get this straight, I'm sure most of this was already covered, but I didn't feel like reading the entire thread.

1) *Nnngh* are not the same as the parasites which the Arilou are hiding you from. I'm guessing the reason the Arilou don't want you to find out more about the *Nnnngh* is not because they are the parasites which seek to destroy humans, but maybe because they belong to the same dimension as the parasites, and seeking *Nnngh* would risk you getting seen. Arilou do tend to mention how curious humans are.

2) The Arilou warn humans about the Orz ONLY to avoid the chance of humans being discovered in this other dimension. The Arilou know that the Orz can travel within the same dimensions as them. Which thereby explains the Arilou "standing in the way". Maybe they also tried to save the Androsynth? Since the Orz, as we discovered, are playful creatures, perhaps that means they enjoy bringing *campers* into their true dimensions.

3) The concept of *fingers* is simple, correct? The Orz are not in true form in our dimension, they are simply a shadow of their true selves. Much as our shadow is 2 dimensions?

4) Of course the Arilou cannot morph anywhere they please. They can only manipulate weak areas in the interdimensional map. Maybe I'm wrong?

5) Maybe the cuts on Bukowski were only reflected onto his 3-dimensional shadow. Perhaps he was discovered, pulled into another dimension, but still remained the same figure in 3 dimensions. But how does that explain the missing Androsynth? The same way it explains the missing skin on Bukowski. Perhaps, much as the androsynth didn't want to leave the their dimension, maybe Bukowski fought to stay in as well, hence the yelling. When someone fighting to stay in their dimension dies, maybe their true form switches dimensions and their shadow disappears.

6) I remember the Melnorme talking about a race that would "frighten" us if we saw them. I'm thinking that perhaps the melnorme can switch dimensions as well. Which is also why they are so mysterious about their backround. Maybe the Androsynth and Bukowski are truly afraid of the a different dimension and it's creatures (who wouldn't be?).

7) Even if we do consider SC3 as a reliable source, it has nothing to do with what Bukowski saw. The Eternal1s couldn't possibly be interested in one human traversing interdimensional boundaries. They seek sentience from millions of races. Nothing more.

That's all for now.

Just so we're on the right page. I've been reading Orz/Arilou threads quite a bit lately, and everyone seems to be in agreement that the Androsynth are now in another dimension.

If I'm not mistaken, we're also all in agreement that 'them' saw the androsynth while they were working with IDF.

Allright, continuing what I was saying above, I beleive the Androsynth of course were *pulled* to the dimension that the parasites resided in. The only reason the Bukowski didn't die and disappear from reality entirely, was that the crew stopped him before he destroyed everything around him. I beleive this explains the reasoning behind the Androsynth's nuclear blasts. They wanted to kill themselves before 'them' *pulled* them out of existence entirely. Perhaps, the Orz aren't as intelligent as the Arilou, and we know they haven't observed humans for as long as the Arilou, so they thought they could help the Androsynth without exposing them even worse. Maybe the Orz gave 'them' enough information about the Androsynth, by alerting them to their *smell* and such, so that 'them' could catch a firm grip on the reality of the androsynth.

Most of this contradicts what I said above, but it's just another theory.

I actually slept on this one. GREAT THREAD SLYLENDRO.

Anyways, I have another theory that might work. Maybe the Orz and 'them' once coexisted in another dimension. Maybe, perhaps, the Orz and 'them' are good friends? The Arilou sort of hint that the Orz are an evil race, and we all seem to think so. Or maybe they didn't know the difference with the Androsynth and exposed them to things they shouldn't be exposed to. The Arilou's "standing in front" could be the barrier between 'them', the Orz and the humans. But, perhaps the Orz's intentions aren't all bad. They do think that humans are *campers*.

ShofixtiWithAK-47: Try not double (or triple) post when you can - It is considered rude and there is a modify button.  Wink

Back-On-The-Topic-At-Hand: That is what was said earlier in the thread. The orz may not be bad. However when they attack and you kill them, you don't kill them. You only kill fingers so to speak. Well maybe the orz think about us the same way, except we can't do that.

Considered rude by who? You'll only confuse people who already read a note if you modify it. If it's just a correction on a posting you just made, I'm all for it, but these are hours apart, and I tend to think having seperate notes works better.

That is what I have been told in my little forum experience. I did the same thing that Shofixti-With-A-AK-47 did and I was told that was rude. But you are a moderator.....

So, I am sorry Shofixti-With-A-AK-47.

I see no problem with double posting. Anything that will get the little new picture is good enough.

Ok, just making sure we're on the same page. But I did take a few things into consideration today. I actually thought about this a lot.

Some of this is a bit off-topic, maybe it was said in other threads. But a few questions I have come to mind.

1. The Melnorme and these creatures that 'frighten' you. What's the deal?

2. Can the Melnorme travel interdimensionally?

3. I realize that the creatures that 'frighten' you are definetely not the parasites, but are they linked somehow with IDF, or interdimensional travel.

Seriously, try to read all I wrote in the three 'rude' posts. I think most of it is legit.

You're sure those people weren't refering to "double posting" in the meaning of posting the same note multiple times?
Anyhow, I'm just telling you my opinion. I may be a moderator here, but this is by no means a rule.

In some forums, if you click the send botton twice before the page loads you will get two posts exactly the same.

So, I don't mean to be a jerk or anything...but does anyone care at all about what I wrote? Or has all of this been talked to death already. I just don't think I fully understand the whole Orz/Androsynth thing. tell me if I'm wrong
