• Fan Theory: The Purpose of Lapis Lazuli

    So, here's a crazy but not too far fetched theory. What if Earth was immensely advanced, and then Homeworld came and wiped out all or nearly all humanity - forcing the Earth back thousands of years of progress. Greg said humans died in the war for Earth. But assuming the war was 5000 years ago, there's no way humans would have been technologically advanced enough to pose a threat, right?

    We've seen how gems fight. Humans get stabbed, they bleed to death. Gems get stabbed, they retreat into their gems and regenerate. And, from what we saw of the battle with Pearl and Sugilite, gems can take a much harder hit than any human would be able to survive. So after humans discovered they were no match for gems, wouldn't they just give up and surrender? What's more likely is that humans were just in the way of the war, and were wiped out simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Gem arrival on Earth is much different that we thought.

    Why would the Homeworld need a Gem capable of controlling entire oceans? My quess is: massive terraforming. Changing the oceans, wiping the continents. Washing away a civilization. Humanity. Humans were much more advanced than we are lead to belive. Greg said that many humans died in the war, yet even those that fought for Earth saw them as little more than insects ("Look at them, they think they are people"). Earth was "reset", humanity erased. And when Rose found out the truth, her view of humans changed.
