    I feel this is somewhat related to the thread, because it has been discussed before.


    While I'm at it, I want to clear something up.
    Yes, but this isn't definite and still would be a theory until confirmed.

    i found out what they eat
    5. What do the Protoss eat? (where do they get energy and mass?) (starcraftcz.com)

    Protoss gain nutrition from sunlight, or at a pinch, moonlight (which is just reflected sunlight anyway) by absorbing through their skins. They can go for extended periods without absorbing sunlight. What little moisture they need is also absorbed through their skin.

    I still like the idea of them using telepathy to make sounds for others to openly hear.

    ...If they absorb energy by photosenthysis...then how to they absorb materials?

    Afterall a plant still needs roots to absorb minerals and nutrients.

    Perhaps they are an ecosystem unto themselves?

    Alright.. So now we know how they talk and have sex.. Right..

    But how do exactly Zerg replant themselfs? Does the hives work as egg producers- who produces larvas in a slow rate - which changes to eggs - which changes to slimeys.

    I think the way there mind-voice sounds is connected to their personality.

    @LordDz, the hatcheries (and later upgraded versions) act as egg producers. They are designed specificaly for this purpose. however, as they must produce larva for the hive, they must wait for the larva to mature (thats my guess anyway) before allowing them to see sunlight (and then undergo maturation into your typical zerg unit. Im not sure what the "Queen" unit does, but im sure it doesnt have the needed biological systems to create that many larvae while flying around. Another theory is there are queens inside the hatcheries creating the eggs (then the larvae).

    Of course these are all theories, I don't have any facts to back me up.

    Well, doesn't the name "HATCHERY" already kind of give it away? The Eggs are produced there (maybe the building makes them, I mean they're all organic and alive), and when the eggs hatch the larva crawl to the surface. That's how I atleast think it is.

    Notice when Zealots talk they give off red flashes of light on their necks? IMO that's how they talk.

    Other than that, maybe they really are telepathic beings...

    Wow, this is really rather exahstive. All I can say is telepathy and the Terrans could kill the protoss any day of the week even if they had no hands and were blind so there!

    Here are overall information about protossi, gathered from this thread:

    -Communication:
    --Talking = protossi use telepathy by "connecting to the main telepathy network, sending their message and attaching the "address" of the person they want to send the message to". Some "addresses" are forbidden. Telepathy is proceeded with help of the protossi almighty will. If a protoss' body part flashes or moves during transmission, it means that communication is a very hard process and protossi strain every nerve to telepathy, that might even cause a metal voice to sound from their head. So, those actions are done... unwillingthly. However, telepathy process doesn't take much time. No, Massive_attack, protoss can't know what you think of, so don't worry. But there may be some protossi with very hard will that allows them to read a mind (it would be a very hard process, though), but you can resist that using your will.

    -Sex
    --Sex = Female protoss exist, but they are not often warriors. Protossi have sex as any human does. I decided that because protossi wear bands on their legs to cover organs that would be not decent to show on public.

    -Eating/Sleeping/Hunting
    --Feeding = Protossi don't eat, but they have special organs in their body to convert sunlight or any light into energy.
    --Sleeping = Protossi do sleep, but it's hard to notice, because their eyes still open. A protoss' body doesn't have rest while sleeping, but mind. Some special protossi who have very hard will never sleep (they can even make a warp shield around them to reflect an attack).
    --Hunting = Protossi hunted for animal's hide (for clothes) and bones.

    Thanks for correction.

    The plural form of Protoss is Protoss, not Protossi :#
    Anyways, they aren't really your theories, either.

    Alot of what you said is from Wikipedia and the Starcraft Wikia.
    And, they aren't theories because they have sources.

    You can only guess. And, why is that important anyways? They have created Twilight Archons and that's the only thing that matters. Protoss ftw!

    in case you ask why Twilight Archons... the answer is: they r uber! ofc
