Any All Exact 

January 30, 2002

Thankfully, Silicon Dream brings us back to reality with an interesting idea:

Although that doesn't necessarily mean that the Halo directly kills intelligent creatures. It could be that it kills any creature sufficiently massive to possibly be intelligent (i.e. big enough to have room for a high-class brain). Or, I suppose, it could kill creatures based on some completely different criterion--water content or average current density or something--which is nevertheless met by every organism that's big 'n smart.

So what exactly does the Halo do? Would the Forerunner build it knowing they might be destroyed? Or are the somehow immune to it?

Go check out the thread and then get thinking.
