Alternate Interpretation of Lost Prophecy 1

[i][quote] Two siblings cleaved by time and space, reflections never found alone, The ending of the eldritch race—a path long seen but never known.[/quote][/i] This the first of Osiris‘s lost prophecies, which have been getting more popular lately, especially this one. The current popular interpretation of this prophecy is about Mara and Uldren Sov, as featured in Myelin Games latest video and on Reddit. I personally feel like this is way too much of a stretch and focuses too much on the word “siblings” and the Sov’s loose connection to the Black Garden. I want to present my own alternative interpretation of the first lost prophecy. Let’s establish some stuff first: In the lore, the followers of Osiris have a theory that the first five verses are about the Black Garden. But rather than sticking to that interpretation like others have done, I’m going to leave it out, since the followers of Osiris have literally no idea what the prophecies are [i]actually[/i] about, which they kinda do admit to in the lore tab where we learn about this theory. So I’m going to ignore their take on this. [i][quote] Two siblings cleaved by time and space, reflections never found alone, The ending of the eldritch race—a path long seen but never known.[/quote][/i] First off, let’s “debunk” this whole Mara and Uldren thing. [i][quote] Two siblings cleaved by time and space[/quote][/i] While these two have definitely been [i]formed[/i] by time and space (them being Awoken and all), they definitely haven’t been [i]cleaved[/i] by it. From what I know about the English language “cleaved” refers to something being separated. Mara and Uldren were separated when the former “died”, but the culprit was Oryx, not the universe itself. [i][quote]reflections never found alone[/quote][/i] So this would mean that Mara and Uldren are reflections of one another, which could pass as just poetic language for sibling hood. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen Mara and Uldren [i]alone[/i] a couple of times, seeing as both of them were dead at some point and literally in different plains of reality. I won’t go over the last two lines, because it should be obvious that you reeeaally have to stretch the meanings to connect them to the Sov siblings. I don’t want to completely disregard this interpretation, because it does have [i]some[/i] merit to it, but we I think we could find better fitting ones down the line. _________________________________________________________ Now to my humble interpretation Here’s the whole verse again: [i][quote] Two siblings cleaved by time and space, reflections never found alone, The ending of the eldritch race—a path long seen but never known.[/quote][/i] We know we are dealing with two separated counterparts, that are necessary reflections of one and another. Those of you that know my older theories on Ulan-Tan might know where im going with this. [spoiler]I always come back to them, it’s a curse...sorry :)[/spoiler] I think this prophecy is about the Light and and Darkness. [b][quote]Two siblings cleaved by time and space, reflections never found alone,[/quote][/b] Light and Dark are part of the same coin. They are primal sibling forces. I think their separation is obvious enough. Where there is light, there are also shadows. Darkness is the absence of light. They are never found alone. If we think of Light and Darkness as necessary forces of the Destiny universe, then we can assume that their battle for dominance has unfolded and changed throughout time and space. I’m going to allow myself the freedom of better make some further connections, which could hold interesting revelations. [i][quote] The ending of the eldritch race—a path long seen but never known.[[/quote][/i] Seeing as this reference to an “eldritch race” is singular, let’s just [i]assume[/i] that it refers to both the Light [b]and[/b] Darkness. That would mean that the two were at one point in time one and the same (remember the part about separation from above) or that they are both leftovers from some sort of beings from an incomprehensible long time ago. I personally think the first one sounds more plausible. If this verse does indeed refer to the Light and Darkness, that could be a clue towards the origin of these to two extremely enigmatic parts of the Destiny universe. The verse talks about the ending of this race (hypothetical still Light and Darkness) and how this end has been coming for quite some time, but hasn’t happened yet. I think this talks about the struggle between Light and Darkness and how either side has come close to winning, but could never finish the job. But if we assume the eldritch race represents both forces, that would mean the end of [b]both of them[/b] has been in motion for quite some time, but has yet to happen. Sorry to plug this again, but this would tie into my theory that Destiny will end with both the Light and Darkness being destroyed by us, based on the teachings of Ulan-Tan. I know that talking about things that far in the future is definitely a long shot, but I just wanted to mention it. Lastly, I think it’s fitting that the first of the prophecies would be about the two forces, which have set everything in Destiny in motion. They are the start of this story. ________________________________________________________ Hope you enjoyed. Btw, is there any demand to bring back my short lived series on Lost Sectors, for those that remember? I kinda felt bad leaving it behind, but I never really found the drive to get back into that. That could change if you guys want it to come back...
