How stupid are the Ancients? Edit
To try and do something like this? Treating whole civilizations as experiments and screwing around with their lives. What would happen if one of their social experiments ended in a devastating war? Say "Oh well that didn't work let's try another way." Also what would happen when the Ancients stopped telling them what to do? Zelenka said that several had been destroyed by war which would inevitably be from the civilization breaking into two groups; one believing the oracle would come back and the other believing not. Clearly the Ancients did not know what they were doing either. 126.96.36.199 21:14, July 3, 2013 (UTC)
- Seeing as they were attacked by the Wraith, it is impossible to say what they would've done. I speculate that they would've attempted to convince them to live their lives without guidance. As was stated in the episode, the device's purpose was likely to find an effective means of aiding life they seeded throughout Pegasus. --ProfessorWalrus (talk) (Contribs) 22:00, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
In my spare time, I will be attempting to create an open-source game like the one seen in this episode. I just feel that games that are like this aren't reaching their true potential. --ProfessorWalrus (talk) (Contribs) 21:54, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
allies against the wraith Edit
This would of been the perfect tool to create allies against the wraith.
artificially accelerate a civilization to the point of where they could be an effective ally vs the wraith and possibly other enemy's.
Teach them the proper morale, how to create the technology and how to use it wisely
