    Ya, but you just contradicted yourself. You said that they would be able to keep them all alive for 150 years or so, but if that were true, would there not be old people assuming they are not murdering them? Not saying you are wrong just wondering what happened to the old people.

    Appreciate the research, really, i know they work real hard over at theorist HQ. Still I seem to recall something about energy pyramids and some of it being lost via heat, digestion, and whatnot... even if blending up the flesh would make it easier to break down there would still be some energy loss. Anyone else think this? Food for thought.

    A big problem for me. Did the Axiom really have 700 years worth of flavourings to make all the dead bodies into smoothie? Like food flavourings is really hard to get in space.

  • alman54

    For this whole theory to work, Order A113 would have to have included the programming to use the passengers as food when the food reserves ran out. In fact, the human body liquefying machines would have been installed in the kitchens. As far as the audience can tell, the passengers' food is ONLY that stuff in the cups. Some kind of liquid. Any kind of actual food reserves, maybe tons of dehydrated foodstuffs, would have been used up hundreds of years before the events of the movie. The only other option for food was the passengers. These were still human beings, and they lived a completely sedentary life and drank stuff in a cup all day. With all those calories and non-movement, they likely were susceptible to early lifespans, and maybe died young due to heart conditions. The computer would not have considered the moral controversies regarding humans consuming other humans, especially without their knowledge. There simply was no other choice for food, once the reserves ran out.


    I wish they create another movie where they show the nightmare sequence coming true

    I only have one question. You said the axiom use to serve real meats based on the clip, that means at one point they did have real animals on board, what happened to them then?

    HOOOOOOLD UP! I get they're sedentary, but wouldn't it still take a high caloric intake to gain and maintain that weight, thus busting your theory, especially since the Axiom didn't leave port with exclusively overweight and sedentary passengers?

  • Recon.777

    Suspicious Detail #1 is explained with the fact that extremely obese people don't live very long. Regarding the calorie dilemma, you can't get around the fact that it will ALWAYS require more calories to sustain a human than the human is worth. To break this would be to violate the very laws of physics. It's like creating a perpetual motion machine. The only reason life on earth can sustain itself is because of the continual input of energy from the sun, which then works its way up the food chain, incurring massive efficiency losses at each stage. The problem is going to catch up with you eventually. And by eventually, I mean a lot sooner than 700 years. You can fudge the numbers all you want, but even if a person could live on 9 dead bodies over the course of their lifetime, that means each generation will be only 1/9th the population of the previous. With 700 years and a no-elderly population living to, say, 40, that's seventeen generations. If you start with a BILLION people and reduce it to 1/9th each generation, you'd be down to TWO people by the 9th generation. There's simply no way this can work.

    Remember, energy is lost through consumption of food through heat and bodily activities. So to get that plump to be recycled into food, the energy transfer would have to be very efficient, or there would have to be another source of energy for the passengers.

    The only flaw I could think of in the theory is that if someone is morbidly obese they must have an insane calorie intake.or at least above average.

    Okay but what if the old people we dont see are put in some kind of other section of the axium? I mean we dont see children either. Children could probably be in some kind of boarding school section of the axium and old people are in some kind of retirement or nursing home section of the axium. Idk how this could be relevant to the theory but just wanted to throw it out there
