Re: 'imprisoned and tormented soul' *Silentium SP*

In Response To: Re: 'imprisoned and tormented soul' (Quirel)

: Circular argument. "Imprisoned and tormented soul" does not fit
: into the context of Halo because it was used in Halo 4. Nor does it or the
: story behind it begin to make sense. >.>

It's a point that's talked about in Silentium, and even the rest of the Forerunner come to regard the Didact's use of the Composer as a crime against the mantle. Then again, the book had to be delayed to fit Halo 4 (worth the wait, though).

As for why the Knights need human souls/brains, I can only guess that it takes a lot longer and is less efficient to create an A.I. from scratch in the Halo universe than it is by using a template or brain tissue, and maybe they have the same limits as UNSC A.I. regarding being unable to copy them or repeat a template, though admittedly I'm shooting at blanks here.
