  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
  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. Here are the messages: "G" Timer: This is not ark 2 Init AP uplink AP secure connection Decrypting incoming datastream Verify UID fingerprint 724EA9458ED40FBF Command elevatio
  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 724EA9458E
  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 cou
  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!
  14. So, here's every message that's been uncovered (so far): "G" Timer: This is not ark 2 Init AP uplink AP secure connection Decrypting incoming datastream Verify UID fingerprint 724EA9458ED40FBF Command elevation request granted Command received syscheck Processing...

  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.
  16. So, these are some of the translations for the ascension code with the new video update (Starting with the text on the pillar directly behind the camera and moving right across): AP Secure Connection Previous Directive Runtime % 6.0485183048e+52 Tp System Idle Time: 1.08159553106ek5 Tp AP Secure Connection ComSec: OK PhysSec: OK Power Core: OK Specimen Viability: 52% There are 3 other messages that I wasn't able to definitively make out the symbols of, the two at the very bottoms of the hologram walls to the left and upper right of the
  17. Not to mention the fact that: 1. In the Island ascension cutscene ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I9ipgYk6k0 ), we start by flying away from the Island we were just on, only to fly over ANOTHER Island. 2. In Mei-Yin's final Island note she says "I suspect this command center was created by something with technology far beyond most normal comprehension. In the distance I can see several worlds, one that is clearly a place I've been." So, yeah, it's confirmed both in the game and in the lore. Also, TravisMichael , you were right when you said the survivors are clones and

  19. Don't know if anyone here's seen this yet, but just watch this and you'll find this whole thing goes FAR beyond the timer itself. Link to this mysterious forum user's profile: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/profile/1204632-ê€2š¥ëìy/ Link to this mysterious user's "COMMUNICATIONS TEST RECORD" forum that's stirring everyone up: New mysterious default forum profile pic : Notice how the new profile pic, if you look closely, is of some sort of notch that's shaped like the Homo Deus crystal. If someone could brighten it to make it more clear, that'd be nice. Actual
  20. I mean, there's always the possibility the respawn mechanic could get reintroduced to the story, just with a different explanation this time.
  21. At 2:53 that recharging station is basically 100% proof now that Aberration impacted the planet. Honestly I would love it if - in whatever new content this timer is meant to reference - they added a cutscene where you actually got to SEE Aberration impact the planet. If they did that I would honestly call it the best cutscene in the game's history.
  22. I doubt it. As OWW note #10 on Extinction says: "I'm by far the most junior of us, but the rest of my kind can do even less than I. They cannot touch minds or leave slivers of thought. They rely on flawed proxies to oversee the grand System they created, for they can no longer manage it themselves. It is not that they are weak, not at all. It is their power that nurtures the seeds that orbit our home, each one drawing strength from a member of our number. Yes, power they have, but nothing to guide it. Their identity, their sense of self, has decayed and crumbled. Only I can speak for
