[SPOILER] One, No One, A Hundred Thousand

Post by Dellis on Wed May 31, 2017 6:50 pm

Ok, I'm gonna assume since the thread is marked spoilers, that if you're in here you don't fear spoilers. But fair warning: if it turns out to be true, this might ruin a big reveal, so I'm gonna spoiler it nonetheless. Caveat Clicker.

Spoiler:
So let's get to it.

This theory is --- well, for now, just a theory, but I think it's got many hints that support it. Feel free to destroy it and dance on its ashes anytime if something does not check out.

The thread's title is from Luigi Pirandello, one of Italia's best writers. It's the title of one of his novels, "Uno, Nessuno, Centomila", in pizza-spaghetti country language. My country. The novel suggests the concept that we have multiple identities, which we show to different people, and beneath those identities we hide our true identity. But our true identity itself is multifaceted, complex, it is itself made of many identities. So if we are not one, and we are not many... who are we? No one.

You're probably asking yourself where I'm going with this one and if I'll ever get to the point. Patience, my dear friends: our destination for today's Weekly Lawyer Theory is... Etamnanki.

By way of someone very special.

You remember silentconspirator? As per the hidden page, Pancake's been replicating identities using etamnanki exploits. But is he the only one?

Etamnanki replicates personalities. Pancake's got access to it. Due to an agreement with GOO, which we might assume pertains to etamnanki usage, the replicate identities must use similar naming schemes.

Keep bearing with the crazy lawyer, I'm getting there. Etamnanki replicates personalities. GOO has access to it. OITHEOI seems to have a connection with it (possibly traumatic in nature, due to his "DON'T SPEAK LIGHTLY OF SUCH THINGS!". A Theodore Oien popped up.

They've all got the same, blue, naming scheme.

One, No One, One Hundred Thousand.

Dellistilde. Curtains. To the next theory~


What set multiple alarm bells in my mind was meta's off remark in update 73 - "There are a lot of 'Theo's out there." Read in this context, it has a very specific meaning. And what's more...

Meta Knows.

This thread is of sufficient interest to me that I'm plugging it in the author's notes, and that's all I'll say on the matter.

From the comments section on Page 73: "Dellis: Iiii just realized something... Buuut it's too spoilery to write" This was it, wasn't it? I knew when I saw that comment that something interesting was going to be produced, and I was right. Smile
Spoiler:
    This theory has me questioning some of the assumptions I'd been making about Theo. I had just assumed that a man named Theodore Oien was using both the OITHEOI account and the Theodore_Oien account, the former for more private activities, the latter for more public. I figured that, like Admiral Pancake/wealthy philanthropist Eugene Panak, Theo was some sort of public figure. As a result, he'd need plausible deniability if he was involved in a suspicious-looking project (ie. Athena) so he used a pseudonym for that, while he used his public account while communicating with bloodshoes to gain the latter's trust. Theodore_Oien, I assumed, was a public account for public activity which was meant to be recognizable to the public, like, say, q.weyrich@hotmail.com (don't spam my inbox please, I only answer emails from wealthy Nigerian princes) while OITHEOI was a private account meant for a more specific purpose, like the Arbiter Forumotion account.
    But now I'm rethinking all of that. The text never outright says they're the same person, and based on bloodshoes' reaction when Theodore first contacts him, he's never heard of Theodore Oien before. Maybe he's not that well-known after all. And if Theo really wanted to disguise himself, he shouldn't have given his private account the exact same text colour as his public account. After all, Xeno has confirmed that colours are assigned per account, not per person, so he should have been able to change it if he wanted to. As for meta's comment, I just assumed that she meant that there are a lot of people out there with the name Theo. But now, I wonder...
    Either way, good theory! I look forward to seeing what, if anything, comes of it.
    All of that was a response to Dellis' theory. What follows is a theory of my own that just popped into my head based on this same topic. It's a different spoiler, so it's marked with a different tag.
Spoiler:
    You know, come to think of it, there are still more characters who use the same text colour and employ theme-naming, as KittenLicks' character list has shown. Let's just say that now, more than ever, I am very curious to find out what DeepDark can learn about the Gaians~

It was exactly that, my dear jurisdiction themed friend.

I'm very curious too about what we might uncover from DeepDark's attempts. BTW, it seems he's acting as if he was a character of the comic (what with his using /logout and /join commands). Wish I had thought it first, it is a cool experiment xD

I honestly think DeepDark might be the most intriguing character in Unichat right now, and they aren't even technically a character. XD

Spoiler:
But seriously, the more I think about this, the more it seems like there's a Gaian connection here. Both Gaians we know of have usernames very similar to each other, use the same-coloured text (which, coincidentally, looks to be the same colour that our two Theos use) and, most interestingly of all, we find out that there is a user named Unum_Relicuum not long after bloodshoes tells Theo that that is the correct declension of Unus_Relicuum's name.
I don't know, maybe I'm reading way too much into this, but it's something that struck me as odd at the time. And if you've read the silentconspirator thread or any of my older comments on the comic, you'd know that reading too much into things is kind of a hobby of mine.
Oh, and since I mentioned that conversation between Theo and bloodshoes, I'd be remiss if I forgot to mention this little tasty detail from the same page:

(15:17)bloodshoes: why didn't pancake just..... keep working with me? i'm an historian, i know things.....
(15:18)Theodore_Oien: He and I don't see eye-to-eye on methodology, let me put it that way. He's much more accepting of collateral damage. Frankly, he seems to revel in it.
(15:18)bloodshoes: heh
(15:18)bloodshoes: is this personal for you?
(15:19)Theodore_Oien: In a way.
