Hey guys, I just had a few questions and want to hear peoples thoughts or theories, you might even have answers. Hopefully can get some conversation going. Please keep in mind this contains SPOILERS for AOE. In Bay's Transformer universe, in all seriousness where do Transformers come from? how are the sentient? How are the alive? If the All-Spark could create life, The Matrix seems to restore it - are there new Transformers coming on-line? since the All-spark is gone, that we know of. In ROTF the decepticons have hatchlings, that require feeding. I assume they had sparks and don't exactly grow on trees. This implies a birth of some sort. If you've watched AOE you know there is basically a Drone army, at least my interpretation was they were empty shells/husks. Controlled by Man via programming, software, joysticks and monitors. Galvatron ends up taking control of the army, but they are still just remote controlled. At least to me he was just directing them, but were they at all Sentient? They almost just seemed to be an extension of himself? Galvatron doesn't seem to have a spark at anytime. So what is the relevance of a spark if he can be a fully functioning reborn evil. Even Prime comments on Galvatron being soulless. Brains makes reference to Megatron's head still kicking and containing more information than the humans knew. Once again no spark attached to the head, but yet he could formulate a plan. I thought Spark = Soul and was what gave Transformers life, without a spark they are just a cheap AI. I thought a spark was required. Are we to believe that now the Brain/head is more important for survival and being rebuilt? Is a spark just a Power source? that the Humans were able to replace? Color me confused.
