Re: EpDis: Dust To Dust

That is definitely a possibility. But I've always wondered if all of these ancient races would all, collectively and unanimously, agree to die just to get out of the way of the younger races. Some of the First Ones were already doing that quite nicely, it seems. Some were very hard to find, I recall.

But it certainly seems to be an alternative possibility, put in most definitely on purpose, to keep it vague. Just like the real end of life is.
