Also someone in the forms said this:

Oh please. Mei Yin over the course of the notes fell in love with Diana, so it's not like the story hasn't had non-straight people. Also...having read all the explorer notes, I don't recall a SINGLE reference in Helena's notes indicating what her romantic preference was, so since she's WC's character, they're the ones who get to choose that for her. Also, the synopsis mentions 'after tragedy' she wakes up on the island, so it's very possible her mother and wife (like Mei Yin's brother) are only ever seen in flashbacks and die. Since she IS alone on the Island.

Actually the simulation doesn’t simulate where we are going. That was never it’s purpose. It was to get us ready for the extremes. Every environment and creature was taken to a extreme so we are ready

Dunno about your thoughts on how well it swims, that's gonna be a 'let's see' for me, but as for water, there's plenty of water we can see at the bottom of the trench, which by my guess, is pretty big

Interesting idea. The element on this planet could be element in its natural form and coexists with the life on the planet. An amount of element could have then traveled to Earth by methods unkno

That actually isn't the new tek suit we're getting, if we assume it's the same one we're unlocking slowly through the chronicles. The leggings look a lot different, I'll see if I can't get a screenshot to compare the two pieces we have already, but I know that that video isn't it.

For all of those whom it may concern:

No, we have not stopped making theories :). We have moved to a different platform, BUT, we will always be here to post the big discoveries. To a new age of theories! Thank you, ARK Forums.

Why? Have them publicly here so we can all contribute?

Also I have a theory, the fish Lion will be good at swimming, and unless there is a major water biome, then what’s the point of good swimming, therefore, OCEAN BIOME also there is a space sea creature, and based on the looks of the original shadowmane poster, it looked vary oceaniy, granted that coulda been Rockwell’s garden, but..

Also question, maybe I’m just confused, we have clearly shown that element isn’t corruption, but rather element evolved into corruption, but why. What reason did it have to evolve? Or was it like cancer, the organism reproduced so much from the war, one mutated badly, and was, well corrupted.? Also Why is normal element powerful against corruption?

Not to mention, they're giving us the canoe, and specifically said when they revealed it that 'they wouldn't give us the canoe if we weren't going to be able to use it' (or something like that), which heavily implies the existence of a water biome.

Something doesn't need a reason to evolve. 'Evolution' is simply the process of natural selection, and that happens all on its own, ahem, naturally. It spread normally already, and once it spread enough, it got a name.
And, for the record, we don't know the origin of Element or Corruption. For all we know, Corruption may be a creature from another planet and element was its method of reproduction. It shot Element into space and some of it ended up here and began to grow. After a certain point, there was enough of it for Corruption to take form here. On the other hand, Element could just be a thing that exists, and Corruption could be a freak occurrence on Earth. We don't know which came first or how it 'evolved', all we can do at this point is guess on that.

As for why normal element is effective against it... Why are normal bombs effective against nuclear bombs? Or bombs from another country? Why are firewalls, one type of program, effective against viruses, another program? It's all about how it's used. Normal element doesn't have any kind of repulsive effect against Corruption, the only time we see anything like that is when the Arks start purging Earth of Corruption, and with it, all Element too. Even this is just one specific occurrence, so I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to ask with that.

And why does melting element make it corrupted? And why did the element call to Rockwell? Is it all corrupted? Or what?

What do you mean melting it made it Corrupted? The only time I can remember anything similar was Rockwell melting down the Element gathered by Santiago's team and removing the impurities, but in this case it was just him melting it down to make it easier to remove those impurities and get a pure, raw Element, instead of the refined stuff that the tribe had in storage.

Why did it call to Rockwell... Still not a bad question. Rockwell is the only person that Element has seemingly called out to like that. Maybe it was something about Rockwell himself, maybe he could just tell by looking at if and the pulses it gave that it truly was an incredible material. Or maybe it is all connected. Element certainly has the ability to connect to other pieces of element over vast distances (see: Corrupted hivemind) so it's not out of the question that every piece of Element is connected to every other piece. Or maybe refined Element has an entirely separate 'network' from Corruption, who knows.

But, if something was calling out to Rockwell, it would have to be because that something recognized Rockwell to be a highly intelligent person and wanted Rockwell on its side, possibly to regroup or help the Corruption on Earth? No one knows right now, maybe he'll talk to us some more in Gen2 or the Chronicles to explain a bit on how that was.

And finally...

Honestly, these forms suck.

It's not that these forums suck, they're well moderated and people (at least in this thread) are fairly polite and don't just call eachother names over disagreements. The reason people see appeal in other platforms such as discord is that forums in general are not a good place for fast-paced discussions, when compared to other options. It's simply easier to have a back-and-forth conversation with someone through messages than it is in forum posts. This is both a good and a bad thing. Forums, as a result of not being terribly well suited to very fast back-and-forths, typically lead to bigger, more thought out answers and responses, which can also be seen publicly and get more decent, thought out posts from anyone else who wants to respond. In addition to this, any questions asked, such as the ones above, can be answered for everyone at once, who can easily review the posts here whenever.

So that's an answer for both groups of, 'why use a different platform' and 'why use the forums at all then'

You have a point. You really do. But when it boils down to it, what would people (or more specifically I) rather? A large place that gets easily congested/complicated and is open to anyone who wants to be a part of the team with varied amounts of experience and seriousness, OR a smaller, more compact and condensed platform for quick theorizing, places to just chill and get off topic and members who are more serious and dedicated to the purpose?

Your question brings a dilemma to my attention. Was it selfish for me to create a new theories thread, without even consulting anyone else, let alone @ArkTheorist123, the original creator of the thread?

This definitely makes me think.

And that's a really big thing too, I am not the OG here. While AT123 is the king here, I'm technically the king of the ARK Theories Discord. That's not really what I was aiming for- I feel like I kind of pulled an Embrace Extend Extinguish here... I really don't like to get deep into thinking, but again, this is something that might call for that.

Just giving up the server to AT123 might not even be the best choice here. After all, he already owns this thread- who would want to own another?

But even then. I doubt anybody would want to leave the comfort of the Discord Server. I guess it's just up to what everyone decides.

Something that really catches my attention in this note is simply the fact that it exists - I mean, it's not like this note tells us anything that we didn't already know going into Extinction, so why include it, especially in the Gen 2 chronicles of all places? Maybe the point isn't to tell us something new about Aberration or the ARKs, but to reintroduce Santiago to the story? I mean, Santiago is a major character in Extinction - where the next set of Gen 2 chronicles will be - as well as ARK II, so at least then it would make some sense if they wanted to expand upon his character and story going forward, by, I dunno, putting other notes similar to this one in the other maps?. But still, why include that in the Gen 2 chronicles of all places, unless...

...unless he has some significance in the story of Gen 2? I mean, we see in the ARK II trailer that Santiago likely came from one of those incubation pods that we've only ever seen on the colony ship, and that he's clearly familiar with the GenSim, which we've also only ever seen accessed from the colony ship. Yes, I think that's it - they want to tease Gen 2 and especially ARK II by reintroducing Santiago to the story, both on Aberration and possibly the other maps.

Also, here is just how I imagine the last 2 Gen 2 chronicles will play out:

Extinction: Rockwell monologues about element, the corruption, the Homo Deus, Helena and her friends, the ARKs, and the wasteland that is Earth; HLN-A has another memory recollection episode and remembers the things that Mei, Santiago, and Diana did for her, as well as the Homo Deus; possibly some more extra Santiago notes related to Gen 2 or ARK II; possibly some hint as to Mei and Diana's fate after Extinction.

Gen 1: Since Gen 1 doesn't have much of a preexisting story, it's likely that the last set of Gen 2 chronicles will consist of Rockwell and HLN-A directly teasing parts of Gen 2's story, like the arrival and the colony ship; possibly some hint as to Mei and Diana's fate after Extinction.

- I feel like the developers added the note just as a, "Hey, Santiago's gonna be in ARK II, so here's some extras thrown towards the character!" In fact, as a prediction, I bet we'll be getting another note from him on Earth. Probably just an "I escaped the corrupted creatures and picked up a weird signal, so FolLoW iT I mUSt!!1"

- If Santiago is on the Federation Colony Ship (FCS) it would be safe to say that he'd have some form of lore importance in Genesis Part II. I feel like it's pretty much confirmed at this point, from including him in the Genesis II Chronicles to including him in ARK II.

- Again, most likely another new Santiago note and maybe a note from Diana. I'd exclude Mei from this one, as she ends her notes long before she regrouped with Diana. HLN-A herself would most likely talk about her friends, while Rockwell would obsess over the element that litters the planet.

- I agree with this one. I would assume Rockwell would be the main star of this one, hinting at what awaits us outside of the simulation, and most likely some info about the inner workings of the Simulation. Maybe HLN-A will allude to the possibility of Mei or Diana being here? "Odd. My sensors are picking up traces of familiar Survivors 'round here. Could it be? No, that's silly. How would Mei or Diana get into the Genesis Simulation anyways?"

I wanted to make this post myself, but you did it first.

I agree wholeheartedly, this is just teasing Santiago's return in Gen2, and I fully expect to see more notes from him in the future chronicles.
