    Why don't you make a new theory on destiny 2. Honestly there's a lot in the story left to speculation post-forsaken and the possibility of destiny 3 using darkness

    I’m sorry, but this theory is officially debunked. We learn in a lore card that Rasputin in fact didn’t shoot down the Traveler, as the protocol was never activated. The Traveler chose humanity to fend off the Darkness because it found us as worthy unlike the Eliksni. Also, if its intentions were truly sadistic and evil, why would it prepare humanity for the upcoming invasion of the Darkness followers? Also, you call Guardians mindless killing machines? The Hive’s Sword Logic is much more sinister, and states that only the strongest survive, and the weak, they die. And if we were truly ”mindless killing machines”, why would we have the choice to spare Mithrax the Forsaken in Destiny 2? Shouldn’t we just have killed him regardless if we truly were murderers? It is even later shown that Mithrax joined in an alliance with the Last City and is currently in a fireteam of two Guardians.
    Also, the lore card about the Deep Stone Crypt is about the Exos, and how they were created by the Clovis Bray company as pure war machines. The Exos are basically human minds in a robotic body, and during their creation they’re experiencing a sick and twisted sort of training, where they have to fight people they knew from their life as a human.

    10:23 is not about Guardians, it's about Exos, the robot race you can play as. It's about the dreams they have of the Deep Stone Crypt and when they were first created. They have dreams of crossing a field filled with every person they've ever known, even after a memory wipe, and most Exos have to kill these people in that dream.

    It would appear since he didn’t bleed but the tree sap represented blood, that a guardians are dead and kill, while their counterparts are still alive and trying to spread life. Maybe the darkness itself was always the idea of death, despair, famine and depression faced by a species, and Light is a golden age, rebirth or full realization, paradise by means of sustenance and salvation. That would make things subjective; the Fallen would see us as the darkness, but WE now have the traveler telling us what to do through ghosts. Maybe the Ghost will have a moment like in Bioshock, where the Ghost reveals the real agenda you’ve been carrying out, wiping out other species and allowing the human race to be used as a tool to do so. And that the traveler may be able to make you perceive its energy as light, like a schizophrenic having an episode. Man, if they could just carry this story out, it would be something else, if they could bring back old ideas, areas and content that we maybe haven’t seen yet, tie everything together and get this ship back on the path it was always meant to go down, that would be amazing, and ironic considering the franchises title is “Destiny”

    Traveler is draining "light" from beings at each uses the guardians to generate light from other planets by killing beings. Traveler can only function if it has light.

  • Alan Brown

    Plus the "god" you kill in the black garden is a piece of the darkness being reincarnated by the vex. There are fallen that are loyal to the reefs inhabitants (Awoken). Variks is a good example. You left a lot of things out mat, you forgot to add in the fallens obsession on machines as you see in the rise of iron campaign. They got a hold of "siva" a sorta super virus that was encoded by rasputin (earths warmind) to destroy recreate and encode. There was a massive fight between humans and gaurdians. Twice the fallen wanted to live in the light of the traveler and twice they failed. The traveler and darkness are two seperate beings. A at the end of destiny 2 campaign you see these ships that are traingular in nature. That are completly devoid of light. When the darkness attacked the first time humanity collapsed and it took the traveler to fight it off. It is basically dead until it reawakens in destiny 2 and then those triangular ships also awaken as well. Many people suspected that those traingular machines are the darkness. And when you are on your vision quest to regain the light in destiny 2 you see those triangular shapes again but completly darkened and hover over some humans.

    Watch some destiny lore videos it explains everything. The gaurdians are revived but the ghosts have a specific person in mind. And plus you are looking at the clovis bray machines. Literally a war faction bent on killing. Your job is to protect the light

    i'm gonna stop you right there mostly because dregs are not a member of the darkness there are only 2 races that are members and one is only partially, the vex and hive are the only 2 members that fall under this category, the fallen and cabal used to have the traveler to them selves but the traveler left them after the darkness caught up to them, and technically the first holders of the traveler were the hive but they thought it was simply a moon, and there connection with darkness has to do with the ahamkara. So the dreg at the beginning could be referencing the acolyte that the guardian kills, also you took the ghost fragment legends out of context, the card is referencing exos and how rasputin made them killing machines. and the person who was supposed to inform you was uldren sov, and in destiny 2 forsaken he says the line between light and dark is so very thin do you know which side your on, but he uses it as an opinion and states no real facts, also he actively hunts guardians, so the theory falls apart

    Although some of the sources of his theory are kinda sketchy, the theory itself is becoming more and more relevant. It seems pretty clear that the Traveler isn't entirely innocent, and neither are Guardians.
    Now that the pulled pork miracle has been revealed, the morality of every single Guardian that knew Cayde 6 and who killed him is going to be questioned. And it's then that they are probably gonna look at the bigger picture and realize that this has never been about Light vs Darkness. It's been about the entire universe against one thing that is trying very hard (and kinda succeeding) to tear apart everything the Traveler has touched.

    I respect your effort into this all, but I just have to say that you entered an area way to big to cover, especially for one video. Also, if you made this theory while only knowing this side of the story, you underestimated the lore. The Destiny universe is humongous. And I'm sorry to say that the traveller is actually good. It knew that the Darkness was coming, as the Light and the Darkness, or the Sky and the Deep, are in a complicated war. The true philosophy of the traveller helping us is unknown, but the philosophy as a whole of the traveller is to create life in the universe. The Darkness the opposite. The traveller has a good purpose.
