Continuing the discussion from Kala Dialogue Thread:
This has been addressed before, but not quite as specific as I’m about to get. If you haven’t read the Kala Dialogue Thread (mostly post 214, good job @white_hawke8) or watched @LoneWolfHBS’s video here, there’s some juicy stuff in there. Now, let’s establish some important info:
The monsters’ genetic makeup is related to the Patterson phenomena, and suggests they’re artificial
The monsters hate each other, are in great pain, and don’t seem to comprehend eating
Since Kala made herself Super-Kala, she’s been known to say things she doesn’t intend to say and she chants in her sleep
The monsters are 200% mad, and they want the energy created by P-tech and nothing more; not the ship, not the structure, and not the humans
When Kala is downed, her monster side takes over, and she speaks from the monsters’ perspective; saying that they will get rid of the “false vacuum” to make a “true vacuum”, and they believe they’re setting the universe right
Destroying a monster doesn’t kill it
The monsters are from another dimension, and came here via the “eggs”, which aren’t really eggs
In doing what they do, the monsters are killing themselves
Mammoth birds aren’t actually the demonic spawn of Krakens, but they’re still assholes
The monsters are smart enough to understand what human technology does, and know something of human society
The monsters are designs to instill fear in the human subconscience
So what the flying fuck does half of this bullshit even mean? Well, for starters, the monsters don’t want to be here. They don’t want to do anything in this universe, and their biology isn’t suited for their minds or even for this universe. They don’t even know how to eat; or at least have some fucking table manners. This suggests that someone else is pulling the strings, and that food isn’t actually a necessity for survival. Think about it–you don’t actually have to eat anything to avoid starving to death in-game, you just get biomass to use as armor or to evolve (even though you could just grab a Mega Stone, but whatever). Combine this with the fact that they’re artificial and that they’re in great pain, and what then? They’re weapons. Slaves. They exist because someone wants to rustle some jimmies; and they’re a sapient species, which may be used by their masters so that they can comprehend elaborate orders. Why, though? Why go through the trouble of bringing some slaves from another dimension do stop some cosmic phenomena?
One could argue that the “false vacuum” is a danger to the universe. The hive mind(s) that speak through Kala say they’re setting the universe right, and they may have tried to contact humanity in the past. But the corporations fuck it up because the P-phenomena are making them rich. That’s what they’ve been hiding all this time; that’s why there was a monster on the Ajax to begin with. The corps are trying to save face because they don’t want people to know what they’re doing and what they could cause. Since humans didn’t listen to reason, the hive mind(s) are forced to save the universe by military means; that’s why the monsters “come from our nightmares.” They’re supposed to scare us to keep us out of the way so they don’t have to cause unneeded casualties; each monster is based on something humans fear by instinct. Goliath has fire, Kraken has lightning, Wraith has jumpscares, Lava Sonic has natural disasters, and Gorgon has–

But there’s a problem here. First, what kind of benevolent organization employs slave labor? They clearly have the technology for interdimensional travel; why can’t they make some robots that they can manually drive? If they care so much about life in the universe, why wouldn’t they care about life in others?
Let’s look at the “false vacuum” shpeal again. The hive mind(s) believe they’re setting the universe straight; and they want to get rid of a “false vacuum” to make way for a true one. Why?
Because they’re a cult. The “vacuum” is their god; they see the “false vacuum” as the work of infidels. They don’t want to kill the humans because, hey, potential converts. History has shown that huge groups with military power and which revolve around organized religion will do anything to spread their holy word. Look at the Crusades, the actions of the KKK during American reconstruction–all over religion. Now, I’m not trying to bash religion; I’m just saying that sometimes, shit goes down when gods are involved.
All this time, Evolve may have been a parable about religious intolerance told from the perspective of the victims of a holy war. Think about it–our heroes don’t really get what’s going on, and they’re just trying to preserve their way of life. They don’t need to get rid of the P-tech for a “true vacuum,” yet that is what is being forced on them. It’s a war over a cause they don’t get and which is doing nothing but harm. That may very well be what’s going on here.
So TL;DR the monsters are a bunch of furries in unused suits for Godzilla movies who are just engaging in roleplay.
…Or I’m just terrible at coming up with theories and should never be entrusted with coming up with shit. You decide.
UPDATE: I think the squidman may be on to something as well. He describes in detail what the “false vacuum” BS and whatnot might actually mean. His theory is that the hive minds want to “eliminate the anomalies” by making the universe eat everything for whatever reason.
