The story is about the end of our civilization and the dystopia that rises in its place. "Future Legend" describes a state of lawless chaos where roving gangs of "peoploids" are the only authority. But that chaos is short-lived as a new figure (perhaps Halloween Jack, perhaps someone else) rises to power and by the end people are calling for Big Brother to protect them.

[[WMG: David Bowie was fated to join the 27 club.]]

But the reaper was a fan, or knew that some of his best work was yet to come, so the rules were changed. He'd die after 27 ''albums'' instead.

Faking one's own death in such a manner might seem like a dick move, but Bowie is famous for DoingItForTheArt, so I can't help but think that he might have done it. After all, it feels better to think that this is the case, rather than him actually being dead.

[[WMG: David Bowie's grandchild could be him resurrected.]]
David's song Lazarus was named after the guy Jesus raised form the dead. David could be Lazarus himself, and his son is Jesus. He's being resurrected by his son in the form of a baby.

This may be wishful thinking, but here goes: He only told a few people about his pian, which was to orchestrate his death, move operations, record new material and have it released under the guise of a posthumous project, most likely assisted by Tony Visconti or maybe Brian Eno, as they had been talking about doing the sequels to ''[[Music/{{Outside}} 1. Outside]]''. Then, two days after the new album is released, he will suddenly appear in a video of some sort, and once people have gotten over the shock, he will announce that he orchestrated his death so that the world could get used to carrying on without him. He will also announce that he is going to make one last grand tour of the world before retiring from public life on a permanent basis.

[[WMG: He is not dead, but is still working on the follow-up to ''★ (Blackstar)'' and his last tour before he retires]]

If, however, he is creating the sequels to ''1. Outside'', the game plan changes slightly. The "posthumous" album will be ''2. Contamination'', and the fake death will somehow have factored into the writing and/or recording process. Once he resurfaces, he reveals that he has also already made ''3. Afrikaan'' and the sequel to ''★'', and that they are going to be released during and/or after his farewell tour.

** Tragically not, as Bowie's longtime producer said he had ''one'' more album planned as a follow-up to ''Blackstar''.

** At the very least, it seems he knew ''Blackstar'' would definitely be his GrandFinale.
