**So what? At what point was anyone promised an afterlife of any kind, let alone an appealing one? The cycle of life energy via the lifestream is simply the natural process of death and rebirth. Your memories might linger if you were strong willed but otherwise you're wiped clean and used to make new life.

** Maybe a bigger question: ''Why does Sephiroth throw a Destruct materia at you?'' Like seriously. Who does that?

** When it comes down to it, they could either let Shinra (who's track record of having any victory against Sephiroth is nil) take these priceless and powerful ancient relics and ram them into the supposedly indestructable meteor and hope it works, or they could take it for themselves and use it for their much more sensible goal of stopping Sephiroth himself and stopping Meteor that way while also not destroying these powerful artifacts in a one shot attempt. And seeing as it grants the party master materia, that was the right call.

And seeing as it grants the party master materia, that was the right call. Likewise, even if it did completely work, nothing really stops Sephiroth from summoning a new Meteor later. The rocket plan is essentially consuming valuable resources to buy time while the party's plan is to use those resources to attack Sephiroth himself with more power. So the deciding factor is whether you think more time or more power is most valuable in defeating Sephiroth himself.

[[folder:What actually happens to you when you join the Lifestream?]]
*So from what I've read and heard it sounds like when a person dies they become apart of the Lifestream, losing all their memories, etc. But if so, that sounds like a terrible afterlife! So you basically become nothing when you die? You lose all your memories and consciousness? Please help me out here, 'cause I'm confused. I think joining the Lifestream is supposed to be a good thing but if you basically lose all your memories and can no longer think or anything (basically become the equivalent of a rock) that sounds more like a terrifying afterlife!

** I thought the whole point of having Rufus take over as president (as opposed to him being president from the start) was to establish Shinra as being bigger than just one person. It isn't like (for instance) ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' where the Empire is [[DecapitatedArmy pretty much done for]] after their leader is killed. President Shinra is ultimately unimportant and replaceable, and by logical extension, so is Rufus. Killing both of them would just leave someone like Scarlet, Hojo, Palmer, or [[TokenGoodTeammate (if you're lucky)]] Reeve to [[YouAreInCommandNow take their place]]. The real enemy is the organization itself, not any one person in it, so it literally takes something much bigger than a handful of terrorists to bring Shinra down for good.

** What can I say? I ''tried'' not giving it to Cloud, but apparently SquareSoft [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption didn't like that idea.]]

***** You've got a super Soldier (or guy with the traits of one anyway) a guy that's had an experimental weapon graft on his arm, the prize pupil of the best martial artist in the world, the last of the Cetra, one of the last of a race of beastmen, a magically animated stuffed toy/robot thing, one of the only Wutai ninja willing to leave their homeland, and a former Turk who's been mutated by a crazy man. The only odd man out is Cid who's should just be a regular dude fight wise but your party are some of the most badass people in the world. Yeah a few other guys like the Turks and Yuffie's father and such could also fight effectively, but most of the world are just too powerless to do much against the likes of Sephiroth.

***** While in the lifestream Tifa implies Cloud had been hanging around for at least a few months after she found him in the train, presumably doing mercenary work. It was only when he said he was going to leave Midgar to look for work elsewhere that she introduced him to Barret because she wanted him to stay longer to figure out why they're memories didn't seem to add up. So he's had plenty of time to recover before the actual first mission of the game.

How the hell did Cloud survive the enormous fall after the second reactor exploded? He fell all the way from the top plate down to the slums, straight through a church roof and into a flower bed. No one could survive that.
