* From what we know about at least two previous cycles (the Prothan and the Leviathan) biotic powers were relatively common and even a standard form of communication hence the beacon from ME1 pretty much requiring a biotic to understand it, but because of this it cut off a means of communication with the Synthetics they created, unable to register them as alive or at least sentient do to not being able to communicate the same way their makers did. unknowingly the reapers have slowly been removing heavy biotics from the galaxy and replacing it, while they are still around evolution has slowly favored races that relay on verbal and visual communication, similar to what the Synthetics would relay on, and this is why it is possible to get the Geth and Qurians to make peace, or for EDI to be so interested in humanity this is the first cycle where the perception of reality relays heavily on the tangible and not the mental and this cycle is the first to be able to unite all the forces against the Reapers.

** The Prothean beacon doesn't rely on biotics to understand- a soldier, engineer or infiltrator Shepard with zero biotic ability accesses it the same as an adept, vanguard or sentinel Shepard does. The reason Liara was needed for Shepard to advance his/her understanding of its message was because Liara had the cultural expertise on Protheans, and because she was incidentally an asari,she could 'meld' with Shepard to share the knowledge. A non-asari with the knowledge could only have explained it verbally (of limited use), and another asari without Liara's knowledge of Prothean culture would have been no particular use at all.

\n[[WMG: Each sapient species represents a possible future for humans]]
* The vorcha represent how humans may end up if they adapt to runaway climate change while the drell represent humans failing to adapt but being saved by another species.
* The hanar show what might happen if theocracy wins out over scepticism and the batarians show the effects of totalitarianism winning out over democracy.
* The volus are what would happen if humanity became ''even more'' dependent on capitalist economics.
* The salarians are a scientific race, the asari are an academic race, and the turians are a military race.
* The krogan represent what humans might become post-Fallout.
* The quarians represent humanity post-Skynet.
* The elcor represent humans who have chosen to become nomadic and leave sedentary life behind to prevent another anthropogenoc mass extinction.
* The yagh show humanity if our society devolved to the point where morality became nonexistent.
* The raloi represent a humanity that lashes out against the Technological Revolution because of the issues that come with it.
* The rachni show what would happen to us if we encountered a species that communicates in a completely different way to ours.
* The Protheans were wiped out by [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens]].
* The Reapers are harvesting any resources they can find.
* And the Keepers have no purpose beyond maintaining the machine they now live on.

** I simply don't see how that's possible, unless we're going with some kind of [[{{Marvel}} Galactus]]-esque "survived from a previous universe" origin. More likely, the ancestors of the Reapers were created by organic life like the geth were created by the quarians. After several generations of improvements, the Reapers were taught/programmed that their species has been mechanical since the beginning, and that organic life is hugely inferior. It's not true, it's just what they believe.

Added DiffLines:

**** Those all happened after a decently long time skip. Obviously, since Miranda and Jacob never existed, it isn't a stretch to assume the project that revived Shepard was just another one of his delusions after getting knocked out during a collector attack. He then went on to do things like become Archangel in the multi-year break between the first and second game or the year-long break between the second and third.

* Both characters are known for their [[BadAss badassery]]. Jack was implied to [[ReallyGetsAround Really Get Around]] despite being a priest. It's conceivable that he has at least of a couple of kids floating about.
