  1. Is Monty the Dark Aether?

    I always appreciate a Richtofen quote! The post you mentioned sounds really interesting! I will give it a look. I do have one question though. Are the Aether and the Dark Aether truly polar opposites? As I was typing the previous post, I started to think that even though the Aether is not bound by space and time like our world, it still exists in the physical multiverse. I started to equate life with the material world, as creation is a physical thing. So it’s polar opposite would be death and an immaterial world. I think the closest we have gotten to the Dark Aether was MotD. The MotD placement on the timeline is isolated and the exact time/place is listed as “???”. This made me think it was the death as the “other can of worms” Monty was talking about. The time line comes from the kronorium, correct? That is how it is able to log all the time ways. It exists at a vantage point higher than ours. Therefore, it should place the time/location of MotD. Otherwise, MotD must exist even out of the reach of the Aether. I know Richtofen is the one viewing the kronorium, but the fact that he does not know about the specifics of MotD means Monty is hiding something sinister. Although all of my musings assume there is nothing higher than the Aether. Or that the Aether is a catch-all for every dimension beyond man’s understanding. Lastly, as for why the Mexican tribes worshiped the Dark Aether, I am sure we can ask Mictlantecuhtli or the MotD crew.
  2. How the Aether could be Hollow Earth

    Exactly! I think the easiest explanation would be that the Earth formed with 115 at the core. It would also help break the Apothicon-grandfather-paradox from Revelations. In the original timeline humans breached the core and came in contact with the Apothicons. It could have been some ancient civilization, the Vril-Ya (if they are not already the keepers), the Illuminati, Group 935, the Nazis, or Brock and Gary. This first contact started the never ending cycle of the Apothicons seeding Earth for assimilation. An interesting thought- if all the 115 from the core of the Earth dissipates into the Aether, then that should leave one with a hollow earth, right? I had another idea, but it slipped my mind. I hope it comes back. I thought it was a good thought too!
  3. Is Monty the Dark Aether?

    Thank you! Glad you liked the idea. @anonymous I agree with you, the Aether has to be a location. Too much of the story points in that location (pun intended). Monty could be an Aethereal being instead. However, a quick Wikipedia search does yield an interesting description of the Aether (when describing it as a place). Under the mythology section of the Aether (Classical element) it reads “The word αἰθήρ (aithēr) in Homeric Greek means "pure, fresh air" or "clear sky". In Greek mythology, it was thought to be the pure essence that the gods breathed, filling the space where they lived, analogous to the air breathed by mortals.[4] It is also personified as a deity, Aether, the son of Erebus and Nyx in traditional Greek mythology.[4][5] Aether is related to αἴθω "to incinerate",[6] and intransitive "to burn, to shine" (related is the name Aithiopes (Ethiopians; see Aethiopia), meaning "people with a burnt (black) visage")” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aether_(classical_element) When Talking about how the Apohticons feed on energy Monty says "Energy is a rather broad term. It may be better to explain it as the spark of life, the purest form of energy that ever existed". Monty's description of energy sounds a lot like the quote above. Plus it explain why he would refer to 115 as Divinium. But what does this have to do with your question? I think the answer is that the Dark Aether is something entirely different from the Aether. Perhaps it is death? Monty does say the Afterlife is "a whole other can of worms" and mentions death is distinct from the Aether. So playing with the idea that the Aether is purity and life, the Dark Aether would be corruption and death. If I really wanted to stretch this dichotomy, I think it could lead somewhere interesting. As we have already stated, the Aether is a physical place governed by physics (in the sense that its behavior is mathematically explainable). The exact opposite of this would be a spiritual realm, not governed by science, but the supernatural. The Dark Aether could be the Afterlife? Monty could even originate from somewhere else. Excluding the weird perk machine shenanigans, I would be willing to bet Monty’s true power rests in the afterlife.
  4. In an interview, Blundell mentioned they had mapped the entirety of Alcatraz. My guess would be a Traznit 2.0 featuring Victis. Maybe you explore more of Alcatraz and move from section to section. The only thing I wonder about is if the map will "real" Alcatraz or Purgatory Alcatraz like in MotD. The timeline shows the events of MotD happening elsewhere, perhaps even in the afterlife. So that would mean the Victis crew would have to be sent to the afterlife first. Bonus points if the Easter Egg involves breaking/interfering with the cycle of the MotD crew.
  5. I have been toying around with this theory for a while now. I just posted it on the Codz reddit, but I feel it also belongs on Codz. I believe this quote from the Zombie Chronicles timeline gives an interesting hint towards the true nature of Monty and the Shadowman. “In the beginning, there was only the Aether and the Keepers. Among them were two beings who would later be known by many names. One would be known as Doctor Monty and the other as the Shadowman” The second line appears to indicate Monty and the Shadowman were former keepers; the “among them” meaning “among the keepers”. However, if the second sentence only refers to the keepers, then it is awkwardly placed. The previous sentence sets the Aether and the Keepers as the subjects. Unless the author makes an explicitly transition, the next sentence should still follow through with the subject of the Aether and the Keepers. Simply put, if the sentence refers to the keepers, it should have read “Among the Keepers…”. The current phrasing is a bit ambiguous. Therefore, what if the “among them” actually refers to among “the keepers and the Aether”. I know the Aether is thought to be a place, but what if it also sentient? In Greek Mythology the Aether is a deity and a place, just like Tartarus. All of this leads me to believe that Monty is the Aether or specifically, the embodiment of the Dark Aether. If this is true, then it tells us more about the relationship between Monty and the Apothicons. I think the Keepers were the first beings in the universe to sell their soul to the Devil. Monty corrupted the Keepers and made them his first servants. The Shadowman could have been an enforcer of Monty’s will, a sort of Mephistopheles-like character collecting souls for Monty. That would explain why Monty refers to the Shadowman as a “good friend”. Furthermore, the Shadowman also wears the Mark of the Beast on his suit. A sign of his former allegiance, perhaps? However, at some point the Apothicons realized they were duped and rebelled from Monty. Now their goal is to stop all sentient life from making pacts with Monty. That is why Monty has such a disdain for the Apothicons and wants to rid them from the universe. The Apothicons know all of his tricks. TL;DR- Monty is the Dark Aether and Corrupted the Keepers into the Apothicons. They were his first victims and servants. At some point, the rebelled. Now, the Apothicons consume all worlds to stop sentient life from selling their souls to Monty. edit- added tl;dr
  6. How the Aether could be Hollow Earth

    I always thought there was some type of gateway at the earth's core, but I think your theory really sells the idea. Essentially, at the core of Earth is one big natural MTD; a chunk of element 115 that displaces itself into Agatha. I guess my question would be if you think this chunk of 115 naturally developed as earth formed or was placed there by the Apothicons. I know Monty mentions the Apothicons seeding planets with 115.
  7. The Kino 1975 note has been changed!

    Interesting. Great catch! Could the notes be connected to the illuminati? Five did feature the All Seeing Eye and the timeline's now recognizes Richtofen's alliance with them. Maybe they are keeping track of Richtofen and his time travel plans? That would explain why the new note has changed.
  8. The Timeline of Zombies

    Thank you!!! That seems like a herculean effort! And thank you to InfestLithium for compiling the data as well! Typing that out had to be tedious too!
  9. The Timeline of Zombies

    Temporal distortion, right? And does it say Sally or Sadly? I couldn't tell if I misread that.
  10. The Timeline of Zombies

    That's crazy. Since we are dealing with a multiverse, shouldn't Richtofen's ending be canon in one universe? Also, is it now confirmed that Monty and the Shadowman were keepers? The second line keeps it kind of ambiguous. I always felt that they were separate entities from the keepers/apothicons. But the "among them" part is still kind of vague to me.
  11. The Timeline of Zombies

    Ah I read that as "Sadly". As in "Sadly they were sent back to 1956". Maybe it is Sally. Then I guess the walkie talkies were displaced too. Edit- Apparently, the Illuminati and Richtofen build a lab under Alcatraz. Uggh this is difficult to read. I know it was done intentionally, but damn it is hard to keep of everything.
  12. The Timeline of Zombies

    The Shangri-La part confused me. If I read it correctly it said Brock and Gary were sent back to 1956 from 2011. Thus, Shangri-La should be in 2011 and 1956 for the Ultimis Crew ( Original 4) as they travel back and forth in time, right? Also, they mention Richtofen joining the Illuminati in 1925! I thought that plot point was dropped. Denizens and Avogadro were also created by Broken Arrow.
  13. The End Cutscene Discussion [SPOILERS] [SPOILERS]

    I think there is another ending or at least something coming down the line. Call me delusional, but I think there is more to this ending- my first thought was we didn't break the cycle! We are back to the beginning! Monty sent the O4 back in time and they became the fabled heroes we saw in the Origins' parchment. If the threat to the multiverse was all said and done, why would he dump them at that point and time? Honestly, I thought they were going to be sent to the forest. Unless this is some random pocket dimension with no significance, Monty wants this cycle to continue. My guess is he wants all of these events to play out in a similar manner if not the exact same manner. Maybe this time, it only happens in one universe. He seems to be friendly towards Al, the only human to break the cycle. Thus, I would assume he wants to keep the others trapped in a never ending cycle. He hates human free will and to doom someone to an inescapable fate would be a fantastic way of taking away that free will. I think the real question here is what are Monty's motives. He is obsessed with creating a perfect world and despises Human free will. Is he a vengeful god/deity? Or is he at odds with something else? He sends the O4 back in time to set a chain of events in motion again. I may be way off, but like everyone else, I feel this ending gives no closure to the story. Remember, the same thing happened with the Origins ee cutscene. People were saying the same thing that zombies was ruined. I really hope there is more.
  14. Monty is the Devil.

    I have been meaning to write a massive thread about Monty’s identity for a while now. I got the idea after reading Reddit user, AceCheeze's post on Reddit linking Monty to the red-eyed zombies in MOTD. However, I didn’t get the time to put together the one big thread. (https://www.reddit.com/r/CODZombies/comments/4tfz0v/theory_dr_monty_is_evil_and_controls_the_redeyed/) So I will post a modified version of what I found a while back in the Reddit thread above. Dr. Monty and his gumball factory gave me a very Steampunk/Victorian Vibe (Late 1800-searly 1900s) so I decided to look at nineteenth-century depictions of Satan. Interestingly enough, one article I found states "'In the 19th century, the publication of Goethe’s Mephistopheles in Faust and Mark Twain’s Mysterious Stranger influenced artists to portray Satan as much more of "a sly, cunning, dandyish type of figure," as Barryte says. "Instead of scaring people into sin and intimidating them, he now uses persuasion." And he has to look appropriate for the part: more weasely than bestial. In the exhibit, this trickster side of Satan is seen in a bronze statue depicting him as Mephistopheles, by the artist Ude"'(http://www.fastcodesign.com/3034309/the-changing-face-of-satan-artistic-depictions-of-the-devil-1500-to-today). This description of Satan sounds much like Monty's MO. Monty seems to be very cunning and manipulative. Not to mention the article describes Satan as a "Weasel". Motd Anyone? Furthermore, Isomniac and The Beebat both made the connection to making a deal with the devil (Side note: These were two Reddit users who pointed this out in the thread). This is extremely important because, in the map Kino, there is a poster for the German Legend and Novel, Faust (a blatant connection to Richtofen and Maxis’ heritage). Update: The poster is back again in the Kino section of Revelations. Wikipedia's summary of Faust is as follows "Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures". There is a demon in the story of Faust known as Mephistopheles. And once again, directly quoting from Wikipedia "Although Mephistopheles appears to Faustus as a demon – a worker for Lucifer – critics claim that he does not search for men to corrupt, but comes to serve and ultimately collect the souls of those who are already damned. Farnham explains, "Nor does Mephistopheles first appear to Faustus as a devil who walks up and down on earth to tempt and corrupt any man encountered. He appears because he senses in Faustus’ magical summons that Faustus is already corrupt, that indeed he is already 'in danger to be damned". The collection of damned souls by Mephistopheles is reminiscent to the Shadowman and Monty’s collection of souls. Now that we know the Shadowman and Monty were once allies, I wonder if the Shadowman was Monty’s Mephistopheles, or collector of souls. The Shadowman does wear the mark of the beast which even in Zombies is three 6s. Could this be a symbol of his former allegiance? Furthermore, Monty appears in the Map Revelations which is the book of the Bible that deals with the end times and the coming Apocalypse of which Satan plays a major role. I also find it interesting that the story of the 2.0 crew began in the map called Origins. What is a synonym for Origins? Genesis. So we have a map of Genesis and a map of Revelations. And finally, two users from Reddit (The_Beebat and XPLJESUS) both messaged me saying that Monty might be Baphomet, the Satanic Deity that the Templars were accused of worshiping. Unfortunately, I am new to Reddit and I tried messaging them back asking for more info, but I am not sure if my messages were sent. It looks like they were sent in my inbox, but I digress. I know Baphomet has been mentioned on the forum here before. (The_Beebat linked me to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baphomet). Considering the connection between the Templars and the Keepers/Apotithcons, I think this piece of information if very useful! Now I do recognize that the Shadowman may be an alternate version of Monty, so some of this may have to be revised. Anyway, that is my two cents. I am hoping at the very least Monty is an entirely separate entity than the Keepers/Apothicons because I really find the power struggle between energy-devouring-interdimensional beings and the Devil interesting.
  15. At 2:13 Monty says "The one and only harbinger of doom". Now I understand what you mean by harbinger announcing the arrival of another. However, in this case,I think he is the harbinger in the sense that he precedes catastrophy, not a being or beings. Plus he is called "the one and only".
