In Response To: Silentium Questions (Free Weights)

: It's been a while.

: I just finished Silentium. Spoilers below if you haven't read this novel yet.

: So at the end of Silentium, which I found to be more enjoyable than the
: previous two Greg Bear halo novels, we discover the Librarian we meet on
: Requiem is an imprint of the original Librarian, and the Iso-Didact
: doesn't die off with the firing of the Halo Array. In either Primordium or
: Cryptum (I don't remember which) when 343 Guilty Spark is recovered he
: says he knows where the Librarian is held. Is he talking about Requiem, or
: is he talking about somewhere else? I can't help but wonder... what the
: heck happened to the rest of the forerunner? It's good that I have more
: questions because if I didn't it may signal the end of Halo for me (at
: least campaign).

: Anyways, am I missing anything, or is there any speculation from forum
: regulars as to the wherabouts of the the Iso-Didact and the Librarian (not
: the imprint on Requiem)? I'm happy to have some tinge of mystery back in
: the Halo universe.

We still haven't been given much detail about "The Great Journey," which wasn't really mentioned in any of the Forerunner novels.. At first I thought that it meant that they had left the galaxy, but now I'm not sure. Perhaps they all entered Cryptums and are still somewhere on the Ark?

As for Librarian, it seems likely that she is truly dead, but I wouldn't put it past her to have left an imprint on a certain new Lifeshaper.
