Any All Exact 

September 5, 2005

I've never been a great believer in the humans-are-Forerunner theory, or the one about Earth escaping the Halos field, and I tend to prefer entries I don't have to go through and add little things like grammar and the English language . . .

In the finale of Halo 2, the monitor says that all sentient life within three radii of the galactic center died when the halos were activated before. What about the life outside of the three radii?

My theory is that the Halos do not 'kill' sentient life. The Halos would destroy the motor function, cognital function, and memory centers of any brain of any sentient life-form the pulse reaches, effectively rendering the potential flood hosts within the 'three radii' dead. But what about the life on the very edge of the pulse's range? Earth is considered to be on the outside edge of the galaxy. Maybe the pulse reached earth, but was so diluted from its galactic journey that it only erased the forerunner's memory banks, sending them back to before the stone age, and the start of humanity as we know it.

But everything needs representation.
