One of the questions I heard about bionicle is "How the heck did life start in Mata-nui?"
1. They came from the sky like the toa did.
2. Molecules started to join together to form complex molecules making the first organisms to live on Mata-nui.
3. It all happened supernaturally...Mata-nui created all organisms.
4. An ancient race of people created the bionicle parts to build themselves into organisms once all life-forms on the island are destroyed.
There are many of possibilities....post one please

I think that they were created by Mata-nui himself and why do you have to say molecules and organisms

Since the Bionicle legend said that Mata Nui created the island and all its inhabitants, I would vote 3.

Well, all of those are possible, but i must say thet it must be that as the toa did, the pieces fell from the sky and they put themselves together, it dosentr say that Mata-Nui created all life, but saved all life and was a hero to the Matoran, not the creator.

If you ask me, the characters existed in the "time before time, when the world was young." They were just souls. But when Mata Nui came, he brought the power to build. The souls built their own bodies and the worl around them, their will alone suddenly bringing it into true existance.

I think that when mata nui came down from the sky saeveral of his best followers came with him but because they weren't as powerful as mata nui...and the habitat was different from their home planet ,some of the followers changed evolved and adapted to the planet.
I have another theory but it's kinda off the wall right now.

I think that they are all ALIENS! Paradise is actualy the mothership. Everyone on the island is biomechanical, craeted by both Mata Nui and Makuta. The bohrak are from the past, created by Mta Nuis and Makutas great, great, great great great grandpa, who also made also made the temple thing that the toa put the krana in. When Makuta created the rahi, Mata nui created the toa. And how were all these things created, you ask? IN TEST TUBES!

I don't need to post theories because i KNOW how life came. here's my story (if you want proof go to bionicle.com and go to the mata nui thing and select the legend of mata nui)
long ago before time was time mata nui was sent from the heavens he created life on mata nui and brought paradise to the island the islanders praised him and thanked him (that's why the island is named mata nui) then came makuta and.........
okay you know the rest.
and NO THIS ISN'T A POSSIBILITY THIS IS THE TRUTH!

I think that ordinary people were transformed by protodermis into Tohunga, a few years of peace, Makuta, you know the rest.

We'll i think it would be neat if the matoran, turaga, heck everything, were remains of a past civilizations. Let's say that they were once (and still are) robots. The matoran were workers, the turaga kinda like foremen, the toa; soldiers. Rahi were under research (prototypes). Same with Bohrok and Rahkshi. The kanohi, krana, and kratta contain programs for extra power. Finally, Mata Nui, Makuta, and the Bahrag are the Central Intellagences(sp?),or CI's for the others; capable of creating programs (the masks and such) and physical upgrades (protodermis) for the others. Now I think that in the before time humans exsisted on Mata Nui and other islands. Then a great plauge broke out across the land. The humans died but the robots survived. The CI's, sensing the humins gone and being the 'bots capable of free will, decided to give free will to the others. Being suspicious of each other, they withdrew there warriors untill the others made a move. And that is my theory.

There you go, dragon-77, they never said Mata Nui created anything.
|At the dawn of time the great spirit Mata Nui was sent down from paradise to care for all living things. He brought joy and light to the islanders now known as the Matoran. The Matoran thanked him by naming their island in his honor. The world was a joyful place...|
I hope they never reveal how life came to be in the Bionicle universe. For one thing, they might offend some people. Number two, it isn't that important to the actual story. Number three, I find it's much more fun to speculate and make things up than to just go to Bionicle.com and read, "This is how the Matoran came to be, etc."

I think someone created the Matoran and then the Matoran Finds the island of Mata Nui and decide to go there.
Mar 28 2003, 05:15 PM
This is a tricky one. I think the Matoran have evolved, much like humans have. (no offense meant to any followers of any religion)
They were a primitive species, then Mata Nui arrived and their evolution was sped up slightly.
I have another one. The Matoran were small creatures like Ruki fish, etc, and their island was being destroyed by volcanoes/earthquakes, whatever. Then Mata Nui came down and saved the island and made it a paradise, then got the most bravest of each of these little animals and turned them into the Matoran.

1) Mata Nui could have created the island, and along with it, brought about the Tohunga. From there the Tohunga developed civilisation.
2) Mata Nui was a dark and bare world... but an electric spark triggered a chain reaction, bringing about the first living cells. From here the cells became orgainic creations, and, yes, the biomechanicals.
The biomechanicals are basically living creatures made of living cells, but they have a unique DNA structure, that produces standard body elements that can be customised to suit their surroundings. They have no organs due to this, and are very mechanical in structure.
The biomechanicals can evolve like we do - from generation to generation they differ slightly in body strcture until new breeds evolve.
This is where the Bohrok-Kal fit in. They were, like the Bohrok, machines, but the Bahrag triggered the electric spark of life in the Kal pods. The Bohrok-Kal 'shell' got replaced by living cells and took over the body. The Bohrok-Kal can now evolve like any biomechanical.
