The entire tech for the cylons seem robotic in nature –the toasters could have created the basestars andraiders (in Jupiter the raiders to the planet looked very much like toasters). I think the toasters created the hybrids, who instructed the toasters how to make organic people.”
“Hybrids to me seem like they are religious tools. They might be explaining the scriptures in current time. When the skinjobs were created, they changed the toasters. The knowledge of the true meaning of the hybrids was lost with them.”
I have often wondered about the whole chicken-and-egg of the Cylon org-chart myself. We know that the humans created the Cylon and that they would most likely have started with centurions — but after that things get a bit fuzzy. There are twelve models but did the Cylon themselves only create 7?
Boxytheboxed also talks about the hybrid spewing out scripture in real time. That’s a most fascinating comment. What if they can not only decode the scripture but understand where and who they are in relation to the story? Then a step further would be: What if they are manipulating everyone they come in contact with to push that story one way or the other?
