The Glimmer: What we know so far (and more lol)

I have some very preliminary speculation on the glimmer... [b]Glimmer[/b] noun 1. a faint or unsteady light; gleam. 2. a dim perception; inkling. verb (used without object) 3. to shine faintly or unsteadily; twinkle, shimmer, or flicker. 4. to appear faintly or dimly. Origin: 1300–50; Middle English glimeren to gleam; cognate with German glimmern; compare Old English gleomu [b]splendor[/b] The Glimmer. A rather anticlimactic name, but very mysterious sounding, and it has [b]7 LETTERS[/b]. The Glimmer are rare/secretive. (judging by the name and definition) Bungie has described them as “[b]Onyx ships[/b]” at GDC, whether the ships are supposed to be hewn from the material is unknown, they probably meant the color onyx. An interesting thing is that, with some tweaking, you can fit together pyramids to form a rough sphere, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Glimmer ships can form larger constructs. They seem to be the terror that the Traveler sacrificed itself to save us from. They probably will be what keeps you playing Destiny for the plot, even though we were familiar with the Covenant by Halo 3 we still had the mystery of the Forerunners to spark our curiosity. I wouldn’t be surprised if they withhold major info/lore until later games. Thoughts? (Side note, can anyone think of references to the number 7 here? [already noted the name has 7 letters])
