Do you think ?

Do you think that ancient humanity had the technology and knowledge to create its own set of halo rings as well as a couple of arks ? I mean the book clearly states that they were stronger or equal to forerunners, so they can ?

I like to think Ancient Humanity surpassed the Forerunners in technological ability (hence their creation of a Flood 'cure'), and they only lost due to being outnumbered and weakened after the human-Flood war. I also like to think the 'Forerunner' crystal on Reach is actually of human design. It's clearly not Precursor as it would have needed the Organon to work.[/quote] Wasn't the cure confirmed false? I am fairly certain the cure didn't actually do anything and it was just the Flood retreating because humanity proved themselves worthy to uphold the Mantle by sacrificing a third of their population. Also, where was it said that Precursor tech needs the Organon to work? Bornstellar admitted it was just a myth, but he hoped it was true. [/quote] Well it wasn't really a cure or anything, the person being infected by the Flood still got infected and effectively died...but to my understanding the "cure" would be a sort of counter-infection on the Flood and would start killing or harming them in some way, which forced their retreat *shrug* That's more or less what I took it to be, the people infected by the Flood who had the "cure" still died, but their deaths introduced a counter-infection of sorts into the Flood that was harming [i]them[/i].[/quote] Yeah, unfortunately that option is not available anymore, because the flood adapted and came back immune to it, i think thats why they say there is no cure anymore, because it works only once.

  • Most likely, but the humans didn't need to do something like that because they found there own effective way of destroying the flood

  • Honestly, the only thing I think of when I think about ancient humanity is the UNSC with nothing but Spartans. Don't know why, I just don't really see humanity as being "up there" with technology close to, or as advanced as the forerunners.

  • I'm pretty sure the T.O or whatever that Lords name was stated that there was no cure for the flood during the confrontation with the T.O and the Bornstellar Didact.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ferrrari First wtf is organon? sounds like a halo version of energon. Second, yes i do think our race back in the day could make halo rings.[/quote] Read Cryptum. It's a mythical device that could alter and use Precursor artifacts and technology.

There was a huge Crystal-like thing in the Forerunner Capital.

  • Ancient humanity wouldn't need halo rings or an Ark, when they already had a cure for the Flood infection. But they probably could've with enough time and resources.

  • I don't honestly know. Did the ancient humans know of the Flood back then? If they knew of the Flood then I would imagine so, yes.
