Twisting the knife.

In the opening cinematic "The Gravemind" , the beginning dialogue:

CORTANA: What... is that?
GRAVEMIND: I? I am a monument to all your sins.

I think that the line "I am a monument to all your sins" means that he is saying he is here because of Cortana (or the Master Chief, after all it was coming out of his body) created the flood. But that can not be. But that could give further proof to the "humans being modern Forerunners" speculation. And because Cortana was in Master Chief when, or because she was created by humans, she could be assumed to be human.

Or, more logically, he could have been talking to Cortana the whole time. After all, our favourite fly trap does have a bit of an obsession about her. What could be Cortana's sins?

Could the Forerunner be a construct race?
