I posted this in the OGD, thought I'd post it here too.
WOW! I haven't PMed you in a month, amazing isn't it.1) Yes
Anyway, I have seen that majority of the posts in the OGD are about the debate questioning if Mata Nu is the MU or is not. And to hopefully quell some of the this, I have some questions that hopefully you can anwser.
1) Can the MU leave the Bionicle Planet.
2) Is Mata Nui mobile.
3) Was the MU finished before Mata Nui was or were they finish being made about the same time?
Thanks in advance.
3) The MU was finished before Mata Nui was brought to life, and I would not consider a creation finished until it is brought to life, myself.
This is a biggie. I saw when you posted this in the OGD (I wish the arguments in there showed up in here :/).
This proves that the MU is not physically part of the Bionicle planet. It can leave the planet. There was also a quote stating that Mata Nui himself is able to leave the Bionicle planet. Don't you guys find it weird that, what you consider to simply be a landmass can depart the planet it's connected to?
The big thing I've noticed is that a large majority of the members here are ignorant to the fact that the Matoran Universe is restricted to the domes
. It's not the planet, and sun and neighboring galaxies like how we define a universe. I'm sick of seeing "LOL mata nui is shaped like a guy he cant be a planets".
Technically, according to the theory, Mata Nui is not
the Matoran Universe. However, the MU is contained within
his body. You wouldn't say that you are your circulatory system, or you are your intestines. It just doesn't make sense.
Also, here's some proof that the Southern Continent isn't so far south as people seem to want to think:
Q: Are there islands very far south of the southern continent? I figured that they only called it the southern continent because there's a northern continent, and that there's a bunch of islands still south of it. But that's just a guess on my part -- I'd like confirmation.
A: There are largely unexplored islands to the far south.
So obviously the SC isn't in the "far south".
And I'm sure
it's simply a coincidence that locations on the island of Mata Nui are Maori words for parts of the face, or that two sunholes just happened to close when Mata Nui fell asleep. Or that Metru Nui, which is the single northernmost island, happens to have those sunholes in proportion to where eyes on a face would be. Or that Mata Nui was created at the same time the Matoran Universe was. Or that the MU itself can detach from the planet and leave it, and so can Mata Nui (who is the only being who can do so).
