I am going to be blunt about this: I want to know more about the great beings. Unsolved Mysteries get on my nerves real fast, just like cliffhangers and vague endings.
Now before I had a theory that the Great beings were actually intelligent Humans, but this got blown out of the water when someone said that Greg had said the great beings were actually similar to the Glatorians. Also someone said they believed that Greg also said that bionicle is another universe and humans never existed in that universe… really? Now before you get mad at me and call me a scrub tier fan, let me explain.
Now saying that Bionicle takes place in another universe means that it is a part of the multiverse (it normally would be, but that is a subject for another topic). One thing that I know for sure is that every universe in the multiverse is a copy of the base universe, but slightly different. EVERY universe will have Humans at one point or another. Saying they never existed in the bionicle universe and I mean absolutely never, is impossible.
Now I have some ideas as to what happened to the humans.
A - Humans have not discovered the bionicles/glatorians and can not get to them any time soon.
B - some humans figured out how to evolve and become more powerful and intelligent.
The reason why I say B is because of the human-coined names/terms we see in bionicle like “Iron,” “Steel,” and “Psionic.” Plus Kohli seems oddly similar to Lacrosse and/or soccer. And the term glatorian also seems very similar to the term gladiator in that universe.
Would it be wrong to say that the great beings could of either A: evolved from hyper intelligent humans or B: spied on humans and adopted some of their concepts? Or it could all be a massive coincidence.
Tell me what you guys think.
