  • Vorlons are AIs?

    I found this on tv tropes B5 page.

    The Vorlon biosuits are actually host to AI Vorlons who reproduce by Brain Uploading.
    When they leave their encounter suits they exist as an Energy Being... briefly. Then all that energy burns off and they die. In "Falling Toward Apotheosis," the two Vorlons were fighting to occupy the same encounter suit (Kosh 2's suit). The first to burn out would die, and the survivor would return to his own encounter suit before he, too, died. In that episode, however, they both killed each other, so we weren't able to see any of this. Instead we were left with the impression of just another god-like Energy Being.

    Nope. Complete and utter bull.
    "As empathy spreads, civilization spreads. As empathy contracts, civilization contracts...as we're seeing now.

      Awe, too bad! Vorlon's being AI's would have been really cool.

        I haven't read the B5 WMG (wild mass guessing), but it's unlikely that you'll find anything there that's canon since the show is older than the site. The canon parts I've seen elsewhere have been perdictions that turned out to be true.
        "It means living each moment as if it were your last one. It means doing each right thing because it is the right thing. The scale doesn't matter. The where, the when, the how, or in what cause... none of those things matter."

          i still think it would have been really cool.

          Of course, in order for the gathering poisoning scene to work, the poison would have to have been a computer virus, so then Dr. Kyle would have found out what they were way back then, plus the Minbari would have to know as well.

          So it doesn't work with the show as-is, prolly.

          But it still would have been super cool!!!
