So, some people say that Kini has crazy ideas. Some people say that those crazy ideas have absolutely no merit, and then Kini has to run around and collect the evidence that leads him to believe that crazy idea.
This is one of those times.
I present to you, fellow
kids Members of the TTV Boards, with my Magnum Opus first essay/paper dealing with some random stuff in the Matoran Universe. I say first like there’s going to be more, but consider that when I resigned this is one of this things I was referencing coming down the pipeline.
I hope it’s not the last.
Please note that this is quite a large document but it is still a WIP, so if there are issues with the theory or aspects you can refute or just don’t make sense please feel free to let me know. I want this to be something that makes sense without stretching canon to its’ limits. Currently this theory is laid out in the linked PDF document, if it’s too verbose I’m open to working on a condensed version.
In any case, without further ado,
The Matoran Universe is a Social Experiment
A Theory developed by Kini Hawkeye
ABSTRACT: The Matoran Universe was created by the Great Beings not only to investigate other worlds and cultures, but to study them with the hope of avoiding a second Core War conflict. As such, I posit that the GSR functions directly as a self-contained Social Experiment wherein beings and events such as the League of Six Kingdoms, Makuta, Great Cataclysm and Destiny War serve as pre-programmed analogues to those that occurred prior to the Shattering. The way the Matoran Universe handles these threats and the steps taken to avoid catastrophe would, in the event of a successful Reunification, be analyzed and used to inform future conflict avoidance or resolution methods by the Great Beings. Importantly, this Theory works to redeem previous conceptions about the Great Beings being “stupid-smart” by attempting to explain why measures were not taken to avoid the outcomes we see in the Prime Universe: namely, the near-death of Mata Nui and his usurpation by Makuta.
