2023.03.29 21:37 WeightedKeys Falco Phoenix Theory (Mindblowing)
Intro:submitted by WeightedKeys to ANRime [link] [comments]
Ever since watching the "Shock" ED, I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with a reasoning as to why Falco received memories, why we are shown a phoenix, what the combustion means, and what role does it all play in AoE. After reading some posts here, a Twitter thread by Tensa, and prior AoE research along with recent digging, I think I can present a plausible theory that I hope can be built upon by the ANRime community.
"Shock" and "Akuma no Ko" ED's:
In these 2 ED's, We are shown an element that is common between both endings; A Phoenix, flying above the air and combusting. In the "Shock" ED, the combustion causes a noticeable change in the Paths Tree. The Tree is shown to glow a bright, orange light. In "Akuma no Ko", we are shown a phoenix flying and hitting a cage, then combusting to break the cage, revealing a lush and abandoned Paradis.
Akuma No Ko
Additionally, the teaser for P3 Cour 2 includes Falco narrating over a visual of him presumably flying in the sky. What's interesting is that a bright, orange glow is included in the center of the frame. The focus on Falco in "Shock", and the same orange, glowing light emitting from the Paths Tree, which is then held in the grasp of Falco (implying Falco has agency over this event), leads me to believe that Falco will transform not into a regular bird, but a Phoenix.
Cour 2 Teaser; looks like phoenix
Falco Holding Paths Tree
What lends additional credence to this theory is that the "Shock" ED singer recently shared what they had in mind while recording: "We are all connected. After a blink of an eye, everything is a burnt field". In AoT, what connects all Eldians? The Paths Tree. What causes burning? flames. I believe that Falco will transform into a phoenix and combust, that combustion causing events related to the Paths Tree that will play a SIGNIFICANT impact in AoE.
Now buckle in, because this is where things get more complex.
Norse Mythology and The Rumbling:
In Norse Mythology, an otherworldly tree named Ygdrassil holds all that is within the universe; it includes the Nine Worlds that exist in this mythology, including Asgard (Heaven), and Midgard (Earth). In AoT, it is believed The Tree on That Hill is Ygdrassil, and the 9 branches of the tree symbolize the 9 worlds of Norse (subsequently, the Nine Titans).
The Tree on That Hill
What I don't see many people mention, however, is that Ygdrassil has 3 roots (3 timelines anyone?) and each root leads to a well or spring. These wells/springs are considered holy. One well leads to great wisdom, and Odin, the all-father of Gods in Norse Mythology, famously sacrificed an eye to gain the wisdom held within the well. Eren also loses an eye, and visits the Paths, which is the presumed "well" in this case. Eren controls birds, mirroring Odin controlling 2 ravens, whose names translate to "Thought" and "Memory". Eren = Odin. What ties all of this together is the panel where Ymir falls into the Paths Tree/Ygdrassil, into a pool of water, where Hallucigenia dwells. Hallucigenia is simply "life", as explained by Zeke. Effectively, Ymir fell into the tree of Norse Mythology, into a pool of water (well) containing the source of all life (Hallucigenia, the source of all life mirroring Ygdrassil), firmly linking the "Tree on That Hill" = Ygdrassil. Ygdrassil will serve as a pillar of this theory.
Ymir falling into Ygdrassil
Hallucigenia and its role in AoE:
Ragnarok is an apocalyptical event in Norse Mythology. A Serpent referred to as Jormungandr causes this event. Jormungandr is said to "bite its own tail", an example of an ouroboros. A broken ouroboros is shown in the "Akatsuki no Requiem" music video by Linked Horizon. I believe that Hallucigenia is a direct reference to Jormungandr, and the death of Hallucigenia will be required to end the power of the titans, the broken ouroboros signifying this (also signifying the breaking of the cycle of timelines, explained later). Supporting this is the mention of Jormungandr spraying "poison" into the air as Ragnarok unfolds. In chapter 138, Hallucigenia is shown to emit gas that is inhaled by the Eldians, causing them to turn into titans, the "poison" of Jormungandr. We are NEVER shown Hallucigenia's death in the manga. We are only shown smoke and the scouts turning back into humans. In the extra pages published after 139, it is revealed that the Paths Tree/Ygdrassil has reopened, implying the power of the titans emerging yet again. I believe that Hallucigenia found its home in the tree once more after The Rumbling, causing the tree to reopen, titans to exist again. With Hallucigenia's survival, the power of the titans will not cease. When Hallucigenia attached itself to Ymir, titans were birthed; and they will continue to be birthed as long as Hallucigenia exists.
In AoE, Hallucigenia will have to die, as the cycle of titans has historically bred fear and division in human life, and for humanity to be free, titans must not exist.
Next, we will talk about the main subject, Falco's role in AoE.
Falco's Critical Role:
Norse Mythology is the key to this theory, and continues to play a role here. During Ragnarok, it is told that the god Heimdallr will stand and blow into his horn, a horn that can be heard in all worlds. Heimdallr is described as "the one who illuminates the world", "the most glittering of all gods, who is gifted with the gift of foresight". I believe that Falco = Heimdallr, and the illumination/glittering refers to Falco's Phoenix, and its combustion. "The gift of foresight" are the memories that Eren bestowed on Falco. After the blowing of the horn (combustion), it is said that a meeting of Gods takes place, then Odin (Eren) advances to battle into Ragnarok. I believe this combustion (blowing of the horn, heard in all worlds, all timelines), will cause some sort of unification in timelines, and break the cycle of timelines. This unification will cause something in Eren, and will (probably) trigger the Berserk Titan, and the Full Rumbling. In regards to the memories, it is still not clear exactly what Eren sent; I hope this theory helps someone connect the dots and they let us know.
Continuing on, I'd like to place attention on the Season 2 ED. Within it, we are shown a panel from the manga, a depiction of Ymir and the 9 Titans. It differs from the manga however, in the manner of an illustration of an "x" across Ymir (manga had no X).
With this in mind, I need to explain how Norse cosmology works and is structured. Many believe the universe of Norse to consist of concentric circles (circles rooting from the same center). The "center" is Ygdrassil. Above the circle containing Earth (Midgard), is the circle of Heaven (Asgard). Here is an illustration:
Heimdallr, in this case Falco, is said to guard the bridge of Bifrost, a bridge linking the Earth and Heaven (the Earth being in the circle below Heaven). I believe that Falco's Phoenix will combust, and "break" this bridge, in this case, breaking the cycle of timelines, unifying all timelines, which causes a version of Heaven on Earth (in "Akuma No Ko", flourishing and beautiful landscapes occur after the Phoenix combusts, showing an abandoned Paradis). The abandonment of Paradis and migration to the mainland is foreshadowed in the season 2 ED, not doomium as some claim. I believe the "X" drawn across Ymir signifies the breaking of the bridge between Heaven and Earth, unifying the two (Ymir's role will be explained later).
More on Ymir later
Now, let's take a look at "Akatsuki no Requiem" MV. In the music video, the question "I wonder why the heavenly sky was separated from the Earth below?" is asked. But what is even more revelatory here is the line later in the video: "The dark shadow of the advancing bird, is burnt upon the Earth below". This is a huge clue, a clue which hasn't drawn attention until now. The advancing bird refers to the phoenix, and the burning upon the Earth refers to its combustion. Remember the quote from the "Shock" ED singer? "After a blink of an eye, everything is a burnt field". Everything is coming together.
In chapter 135, we are shown Armin is taken captive by Ymir. Interestingly though, notice Armin's internal dialogue the moment before he was captured:
This seems to imply that Armin was contemplating "throwing away" his friendship to aid Eren. Had Ymir not interfered, what would Armin have done? Remember this Armin visual?
Truth or Friendship?
I believe that Ymir was trying to thwart Armin choosing "truth", by capturing him and not allowing him the ability to transform into a Titan, in the event he would indeed choose truth and help Eren. Again, I found a link in Norse Mythology, which may not be accurate, but interesting nonetheless:
The god Loki had been bound/imprisoned for the death of another God. It was proclaimed that Loki would break free from his binds, and cause chaos during the event of Ragnarok. Normally I wouldn't lend any credence to this, but it is also told his 3 children will break free, and also cause havok. Who do we know that had 3 children? Ymir, with her daughters being Maria, Rose, and Shina. Who do we know who was recently "freed" by Eren? Ymir. I believe Ymir deceived Eren, which also plays into Loki's personality. By capturing Armin, not only was Armin swayed from choosing truth, he convinced Zeke to emerge, who was later killed, causing The Rumbling to stop. Ymir WANTS the cycle of titans to continue; I believe she may still be bound to King Fritz, or maybe there is still a "binding" element to Paths that keep her confined, if the event which I will detail now occurs, the culmination of everything so far, Ymir will be "free" from this bind.
In the song "Vogel im Kafig", a key line is sung: "Is that the angel who fell who flew down from the twilight sky?". The Rumbling, which occurs at dusk, implies that this angel will fall down during The Rumbling. We know The Rumbling occurs at dusk because of what we saw In Cour 1, and also, in the FIRST OPENING of the whole show (crazy foreshadowing), the lyrics "We ignite the dusk with a crimson bow and arrow" are present. In the AnR music video, the crimson bow is also present, and is a metaphor to The Rumbling. Here is the culmination: Falco will turn into a Phoenix, combust, and break the boundary between heaven and earth; Ymir may or may not try to stop this from happening, causing her death, or in the case she does not try to stop it, causing her freedom from Paths (This explains the "X"). Her body may physically or metaphorically "fall from the twilight sky". In either case, Falco's combustion will cause a change in the Paths Tree that will allow some sort of unification of timelines, breaking the cycle, and this unification may be what triggers clarity in Eren, and subsequently the Berserk Titan transformation.
Please, build on this or provide insight/counter-claims. We are getting closer and closer to the truth. AoE will happen. Also, I will provide my own mini-theory for the ending just to close up some thoughts:
I believed that AoE would happen entirely in Cour 2, but with everything that needs to be explained, I now believe it is not possible for everything to be covered in this next part. I'm starting to believe the Linked Horizon "movie" theory:
part 4 = movie, but it may also just mean Cour 2
My "to be taken more seriously" theory is done already at this point, this is just my intuition now, don't call me crazy, but remember the image of the dude who predicted AoT's ending?
First off, the fact he predicted Colossal Titan Eren (Berserk Eren), is crazy to me. Secondly, the "chapter 140" aligns with Yams comments about writing an extra 15 pages. 3rdly, the movie being the "final timeline" aligns with Muv-luv's presentation; The MC arrives in the final timeline with all of his memories of the past timelines, which didn't happen in the AoT anime timeline. It also aligns with School Casts, which is shown in a memory when Eren's head touches Zeke, I believe in School Casts it shows Eren bored and he makes a deal with Ymir (Easter egg, or Canon?). Lastly, my theory states that the worm HAS to die, and this dude said it exists as a fossil, meaning it dies....there's alot that connects here, just think it's interesting.
2023.03.29 21:36 athanielx What on-demand English course do you know?
2023.03.29 21:36 EDG33 Thoughts please. Legitimate or not?
I received this email earlier today. Seems legitimate to me as the English is on point. The website is newer about 18 months. The certificate that encrypts the site is a let's encrypt certificate that renews itself every 3 months. That on its own isn't necessarily an actual problem. The person who sent it has a LinkedIn profile with the photograph. The company website doesn't have much information on it about what they do or where they're located. I haven't supplied any information of course other than saying yeah I might be interested in participating. What would other people think this one? Scam or sound good to participate with them?submitted by EDG33 to Scams [link] [comments]
