*Spoilers*What does the prisoner say that makes the humans...

What does the prisoner say that makes the humans commit suicide? It must have been pretty disturbing. I've just read up to this part of the book so please no further spoilers, unless it answers the question. Post a creative and/or funny comment, also, if you'd like. Everybody likes a good laugh...

  • Well since it can be assumed the flood was released by the Precursors as a parting gift when the Forerunners destroyed them. The humans asked about it and I think it explained what it was and how the Precursors thought it could not be stopped. Since humans only commited suicide after asking about the Flood.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] rayje0607 from the book you can tell that The Forerunners were a very selfish species.[/quote] Before I didn't know what to think of the Forerunners. Now, as I'm reading Cryptum, I strongly dislike them. They're so arrogant and think they're better then everybody else. They kind of are, but they don't have to rub it in like they do. They all act like jerks. Their opinions on humans, also, makes me continue to dislike them. I don't think I'll ever like Forerunners...

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CB Visco But that doesn't really make sense cause the humans found a way to fight the flood and beat them. And I doubt it told them the same thing as the didact for reasons below. Also what the prisoner told the didact was really weird. Wouldn't the forerunners remember going to war against the precursors? Also how did the precursors lose if they were such a more advanced society than the forerunners? This also brings up the question, why would the humans also fight the precursors, if the prisoner told the humans the same thing.[/quote] The Precursors were not more advanced than the Forerunners, and the Humans never fought the Precursors. Humans found the prison on Erde-Tyrene (which, by the way, is Earth), and somehow were able to talk to the prisoner. The prisoner was there long before humans found Erde-Tyrene. The Forerunners went to war with the precursors for unknown reasons, probably because they were dangerous, and from the book you can tell that The Forerunners were a very selfish species.

  • Prisoner: Knock knock... Human: Who's there? Prisoner: Banana... Human: Banana who? Prisoner: Knock knock... Human: Who's there? Prisoner repeats this for hours, then eventually changes the response to "Orange" Human: Orange who? Prisoner: Orange you glad I didn't say banana again? Human kills self

And I doubt it told them the same thing as the didact for reasons below. [/quote] The Flood we defeated way back when was a different manifestation of the Flod, more primitive and far weaker, with no apparent Gravemind to control it. The Prisoner could have told them what the Flood could become, or that he was the Gravemind or whatever. They'll probably reveal it in the next book.

  • I'd guess he explained the Precursors plan to unleash The Flood, explaining how they would all be transformed into horrible warped manifestations of life, their memories slowly erased and minds destroyed, doomed to eternal hunger and how there is nothing they can do. No matter how hard they fight The Flood will return, again and again until all life in the galaxy is gone. Something like that. That's just speculation. Then again, he could have been lying...
