  1. By slowing down the footage at 0:42 in the trailer you can see that this strange device we've been seeing for the past week and a half is located in some kind of (untextured) open room filled with diagonal pillars and some white light. Given that the device is also shown at the title card at the end of the trailer, it's clear this device is going to play some major role in Genesis. HLN-A herself is, obviously, a fragment of Helena Walker, and if I had to guess, I'd say that the "fragmented" part was her "emotional" one, or rather, the parts that wouldn't exactly be necessary for the tasks of a Homo Deus. The rest of Helena, it seems, is going off to contact other survivors and tell them the same things she told us. As for story, here's what I've pieced together: Helena has brought us to the weird device and given us HLN-A, telling us that we must go through a series of tests. With HLN-A at our side, we visit a variety of different survival simulations. It seems each region will be a different mission, and each mission will involve us surviving until we can defeat a boss or something like that. After that, we are taken to the next region via the device. At the very end of the trailer, you can see some tek structure at the top and bottom of the cave passage, suggesting we may also encounter rare tek structures. Speaking of tek and element, according to https://www.pcgamer.com/ark-genesis-season-pass-everything-we-know/ : "There's also a small shoulder pet nicknamed Tiny. It's adorable until it gets its hands on some Element, one of Ark's resources, which makes it completely hulk out and turn into a vicious, rampaging multi-limbed fangbeast. Seems like just the kind of pet you'd like in your arsenal." Element is the keyword here, as it suggests these Genesis simulation locations have not been purged of element for some reason. We also know it's "bad" element since the thing the Tiny eats not glows purple at 0:54 in the trailer, but the Tiny transforms it into a beast once eaten, similar to what presumably happened with the titans on Extinction. Another interesting thing to think about is that Arat Prime is opposite of Extinction, Extinction is under the 3 ARKs Helena has influenced, and Helena says that the Genesis map/maps is/are "beyond my reach". In other words, the evidence suggests to me that these simulations may be located within Arat Prime, a place that, due to it's location, Helena may not have been able to access and monitor directly, hence a reason she made HLN-A. The simulations being in Arat Prime would explain why the simulations and device exist AT ALL, as they may have been used in the past as prototype ARKs. It could also explain why we saw little bits of tek a the end of the trailer. As for the point of all this testing, it seems that Helena is training us for something, something she refers to in the trailer as "The arrival". I think it's pretty likely that what's "arriving" is Rockwell and the evils of the crashed Aberration ARK, which could be re-intoxicating the planet. If this theory about "The arrival" is true - and it does seem to be - then that would confirm that Genesis is a sequel to Extinction and not a prequel to it as some have suggested. But maybe, as one of the devs on the stream said, Genesis could begin in a way that doesn't pick up right where Extinction left off, but at a point where the influence of the crashed Aberration has begun to negatively effect the planet, weeks/months after Extinction's end. To recap, it seems that Helena is sending us and HLN-A to a series of survival simulations within Arat Prime in order to train us to fight Rockwell and Aberration. Part one could be the training, and part two could be the actual fight against Aberration. We also have yet to meet this "new character" that Helena was talking to in the Communication Records, maybe he/she will play a part in Genesis's story?
  2. Just saw the timer change again, wasn't expecting it to have a 7th phase. But I'm busy getting ready cuz I'm leaving to go on vacation in literally an hour or two, so if someone else could translate/interpret the new ascension code, that'd be great! I should be back in about 4 days.
  3. Tomorrow I'll be going on vacation for around 4 days, so since Ill be away from the computer I guess I won't get to see the ark dev stream or the end of the countdown Hence, today I want to do a quick recap of every message and event that's happened so far, as well as a recap on my thoughts/theory as what's going on with this timer. Since this is my last chance to reflect and all.

[LOG_TRANSMIT] To integrate them I need you to jump through some hoops. MESSAGE ATTACHMENT (Filename of picture above is "out.jpeg") Mysterious profile thumbnail - My analysis//theory (Could be completely wrong, but anyways...also, more or less just a retelling : / Person A/Helena has somehow not only survived Extinction, but has come across a pre-existing human facility, as well as somehow acquired not only an ID fingerprint - serial #724EA9458ED40FBF - , but an RSA key (with the same serial #). She uses the ID fingerprint to gain access to the facility's computer, which was previously being run by an AI known as the "Host system", which she promptly "turned off". She then manages to establish an encrypted satellite uplink connection to Arat Prime (or fixed AP's connection if AP is the facility with the timer), but in order to do so must put in an ID fingerprint and encrypted signature. She complies, using the same fingerprint ID she used before, but using HER OWN signature, which she encrypts using the RSA key (presumably not her own, as we'll see in a moment). The system accepts the ID and signature without question, and the computer links her to another user in a different facility, Person B ("gpg"). Who he/she is is unclear. However, the fact that he/she says "I found a few behavior sub-routines in some sort of genetic archive I was able to access" may indicate that he/she is unfamiliar with the computer system, and therefore is not from the "future human" time. Could it be Mei-Yin or Diana? Person B gets a warning from his/her communication device that the signature given (Helena's) and the signature of the person who originally owned the ID fingerprint are not the same, and hence might be someone impersonating the fingerprint's original owner. Person B seemingly ignores this, and continues to communicate with Person A/Helena. He/she proceeds to tell her "Your cognitive profile seems limited to specimen guardianship, you're a glorified patient monitor", and that to access other computer functions her computer would not allow her to, she must "learn new tricks", and must get some changes to her (seemingly genetic) programming (that possibly could free her from her "survivor monitoring" state?). He/she begins sending her the programming changes in the form of an encrypted datastream (seen in the timer as the white beam), as well as grants her "Command Elevation" (still not quite sure what that is, maybe it's he name of the changes being done to Person A/Helena's programming?) Meanwhile, Person A/Helena passes the time by doing a check-up on her computer and updating some of the old protocols. Eventually she begins getting her programming, or "Specimen Guardian Subsystem" changed, which could explain why the timer was red, depending on the "safety" of the programming changes or the procedure to integrate them (or maybe there was a different reason?). Speaking of integrating, I think the text in the "Genetic archive" is Person B showing Person A/Helena the programming changes and telling her how to integrate them. This latest/last stage of the timer could be after Person A/Helena has integrated the programming changes. It seems after doing so, she has become focused on this "Cooperative simulation", and has even opened what appears to be a "viewing window" into these simulations. Each image/location seems to have a specific theme - biotoxic, ice, fire, and water. Could these "cooperative simulations" be the ARKs? Each ARK was simulating a different environment, after all, and the people on them were "cooperating". Also, what's with that "Resolution schema" from the timer's 5th phase? What's with the ARK logo-looking thing to the left of it? Again, I could be completely wrong about all of this.
  4. Just found out that the mysterious forum user has created another cryptic forum: I'm guessing this is Person A/Helena trying to integrate her genetic programming changes cryptically? Also, the file name of the gene photo attached to the original post on that forum is "out.jpeg". Some sort of clue?
  5. So remember this photo? - Well, when I was saving it to my computer, it's file name appeared as "ava.thumb.jpg.9d83aaaf345201f30e997c7b26c7d05e". Who the heck is Ava? Does this have something to do with the countdown?
  6. "Verifying Simulation Stability". I think those weird images of different lands prove that this is some sort of portal or ARK viewing device. Also notice how the different locations shown are green, blue, and red, the same colors flashing around the timer as well as the colors of the obelisks. The emblems flashing around look like a skull and crossbones, a snowflake, and then what looks like a flame or some corruption and then a candle. Do these emblems have to do with the titans, the bosses, the ARKs, or what? Also, the newest edition of the community crunch is called "The Visitor" :0
  7. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koANO557eT4 ) Can't tell, the glare bouncing off the edge of the tek hole behind it is blocking most of it : /
  8. Just came up with this: if what I said earlier about Helena probably being the "Specimen Guardian" mentioned in this video update were right, would that mean she's ALSO the "Specimen" referred to in the last video update ("Specimen Viability: 52%")? OWW does mention being weak in her 10th Extinction note, hence, if I were right about her being the "specimen", the reason her viability, or ability to do work, would be at 52%
  9. I suppose it's possible. Then again, I think ANYTHING is possible at this point.
  10. Given that the text rotating around the beam is mirror-inverted at it's clearest point ("D" symbol is an indicator), you would actually have to read the translated words in the reverse order if you wanted to get the original/correct phrase, making it "Specimen Guardian Subsystem", not "Subsystem Guardian Specimen"
  11. Video updated again, now everything's red and some of the holograms changed, here's my translations of the ascension code now, starting on the pillar in front of the camera and moving right across (I know JasonTheCTM just did this already but I already had these translations down and didn't want to not include them, I've been working on this all day ): AP Secure Connection Specimen Simulation Mode: Cooperative Specimen Maintenance Protocol: Updated Host System Directive: Updated Resolution Schema: Updated AP Secure Connection Change Authorization 724EA9458ED40FBF Verified Ecological Conditions: Predictive (Circling red beam) Specimen Guardian Subsystem I have 2 different guesses as to what's going on here: 1. Helena or person B has finished doing a checkup of the system Helena was using, and is now updating some of the old procedures that haven't been changed since before Earth's abandonment. Meanwhile, Helena is getting her "programming" changed, or the subsystem of Helena, a specimen guardian ( Hence the reason that piece of text is circling the beam, the thing that contains the update to Helena's programming). As for why everything is red, maybe the update for Helena is "dangerous", or the system detected something dangerous, Helena has to leave as she and the facility have detected something dangerous, or... 2. Someone/something has taken control of the timer facility's computer and booted out Helena from controlling it (is that what "change authorization" means? The code to the right of that line is the same one I proposed Helena was using). Then he/she/it began updating the old procedures to suit his/her/its own needs. The computer system recognizes this as a threat, hence the reason everything is red. There are a few other things I want to point out: As I just mentioned, there's that code - 724EA9458ED40FBF - that is also used with the ID fingerprint and RSA key (it's mentioned in the communication logs), and that I previously said might have been found/stolen by Helena and then used by her to gain access to her facility's communication system. There's also more mention of a "Host system", something that also appeared in the communication records. I believe it was some sort of AI that was controlling the system in Helena's facility before Helena actually gained access to the system. When she did, she "turned off" the AI until now, when it has been given a new directive. I'm not entirely sure what "Resolution Schema" is, only that schema means "a representation of a plan or theory in the form of an outline or model". Does "Resolution" refer to some sort of machine/craft? Also, in the timer there's a symbol next to the "resolution schema" phrase that looks exactly like the ARK logo if you look at it the right way. Some other identifiable holograms include what appears to be a specimen implant/homo deus gem above the just mentioned ARK logo, as well as what looks like another diagram of the device the beam is going into just above the implant hologram.
  12. That's one of the harder questions. In the hall of history, just before the Overseer Arena, you can see the drops being, well, dropped into the map from the ceiling. The thing is, there's no mention of the drops at any point during ANY of the explorer notes. This leads me to two possibilities: 1. The drops were always a part of the ARKs, but were just never mentioned in the explorer notes (VERY unlikely). 2. The drops were implemented by The One Who Waits to help us on our journey to eventually defeat the corruption. As for the orbital supply drops on Extinction, well, those could have been launched from the ARKs by OWW.
  13. The place the kid - Skye - was talking about was ARK Park. In fact, I made an entire post on 10/11/18 (page 1) on how the whole ARK Park GAME could be Skye's dream, so I suggest you check that out!

One of the facilities is likely Arat Prime, though whether it's the facility we're seeing with the timer or the other unseen facility I'm not sure, though AP might be the facility with the timer since AP seems like the only place where this "Command elevation (or maybe just "elevation"?)" procedure can be activated. There's also the fact that the facility with the timer looks very similar to the hole on Extinction, though whether that's true and what exact relevance it would have if it was, I'm not sure. Regardless, it seems both facilities are being connected via satellite uplink. Also, let's assume that the text by [LOG_TRANSMIT] and [LOG_RECEIVE] are what's appearing on person A's communication system, and the text by "gpg" (not sure exactly what that means) is what's appearing on person B's communication system. What exactly is happening with the communication records is kinda high-tech, but I'm going to break it down as best I can: Those blocks of random letters/numbers seen between the phrases "-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----" and "-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----" are signatures of the sender, but heavily encrypted ones (PGP stands for "Pretty Good Privacy"). Basically the way this works is two important people get one of the same "RSA Key". This key is plugged into their respective computers or other communication device and is used to not only decrypt other people's signatures, but encode your own signature before it is sent to the other person. These encrypted signatures are used as a sort of "password", as not only would the message - if intercepted - be untraceable without the key, but it would verify that the message was indeed sent by the person and not an imposter. Now that that explanation is out of the way, I want to point out something important - the encrypted signature used during the "Sublayer Encrypted Communications Test" is HELENA'S. In other words, I'm thinking that HELENA is one of the two people talking in these communication records. I know that she "died" at the end of Extinction, but EVERYTHING seems to be pointing to this. Not only is the signature Helena's, but Wildcard, rather than hide that bit of communication dialogue in one of their OWN gmail accounts, SPECIFICALLY made one for Helena. Furthermore, when you send Helena that code through the gmail account, you get a response seemingly from the SAME AP communication network. Finally, in the latest transmission from the communication records, you can see what appears to be a message that has appeared on person A's communication device, the message having seemingly been sent by person B. The message appears to refer to person A as "limited to specimen guardianship, you're a glorified patient monitor". If Helena I person A, then this description would PERFECTLY describe her as a Homo Dei, a "godlike" entity that "monitors" us survivors, or "specimens/patients". So, here's a recap/interpretation of what I think is going on here: Helena (person A) has somehow not only survived Extinction, but has come across a pre-existing human facility, as well as somehow acquired not only an ID fingerprint - serial #724EA9458ED40FBF - , but an RSA key (with the same serial #). She uses the ID fingerprint to gain access to the facility's communication system. She then manages to establish an encrypted satellite uplink connection to Arat Prime (or fixed AP's connection if AP is the facility with the timer), but in order to do so must put in an ID fingerprint and encrypted signature. She complies, using the same fingerprint ID she used before, but using HER OWN signature, which she encrypts using the RSA key (presumably not her own, as we'll see in a moment). The system accepts the ID and signature, but person B gets a warning from his/her communication device that the signature given (Helena's) and the signature of the person who originally owned the ID fingerprint are not the same, and hence might be someone impersonating the fingerprint's original owner. Person B seemingly ignores this, and proceeds to establish full communication with Helena. After doing so, he sends her that message about her "cognitive Profile" and tells her he will "change her programming" and will contact her when it's ready. Person B then grants her "command elevation"/"elevation" and also sends her the upgrade in the form of an encrypted datastream - the glowing beam in the timer! While being upgraded, she decides to pass the time by running a check-up on the system she's using, which is what we're currently seeing with the timer, given all the holograms and statuses for the coms, power core, etc (not to mention those holograms of what appears the be the device the beam is going into!). After all that, we still have a few questions: Which facility is AP? Is one of the facilities related to that hole on Extinction? Who is person B, the person managing the "gpg" communication system? - He/she ends her message to Helena with his/her OWN encrypted signature, but we're unable to translate it without the RSA key. What is "Command elevation"/"elevation"? - this one I may actually have an answer for: In person B's message to Helena, he tells her she is "limited to specimen guardianship". Is command elevation/elevation some command that grants her freedom from monitoring the ARKs? Is that what happened to person B? Why is there a Hologram of humans (definitely humans and not Homo Dei, human DNA strand in hologram, Homo Dei have different-looking DNA strand) with the message "Specimen Viability (capability of doing work):52%"? Is Helena or person B looking for someone to perform some task? Again, I could be completely wrong about all of this, but at the moment I'm confident we're about to see some return of Helena, this time stronger than before.
  15. Alright, I managed to decipher that one bit of text just left of the human hologram: C2M Integrity: 88% What "C2M" stands for, I'm not sure, unless I somehow spelled it wrong, but I'm pretty sure I didn't.
