    Question The Plains Of Celestis [Origin Spoilers]

    Forgive me if this question has already been asked and answered.

    WHERE and WHAT are the Plains of Celestis?
    Are they on a planet? In orbit around a planet? Some type of ascended city?
    But it's not like the Ancient Diner, because you don't have to be ascended to go there.
    And there's obviously some sort of physical ring platform that lets people arrive and leave.
    So what and where the heck is it? I'd like to get some responses. Let me know what you all think.
    There is only one thing we can ever truly control: whether we are good, or evil.

    I think its something got to do with ascending.
    or maybe its the big cty/building thing we saw in origin(i think it was origin)

    We've seen planets ring to moons before like Sokar's setup. I'll take a wager that the Ori keep their worshipers on the planets and their base of opporations on the moons. Stargates and other advanced technology would be out of reach on the moons and the people would live in pretty primative habitats on the planets. Planes of Celestis is probably just one of the moons around that planet. I'm not sure how far a matter stream for a ring platform can actually go, but it seems like its probably not all that far, so its either a moon or a ship in orbit. They wouldn't have it anywhere on the planet for the people to find through casual exploring. It wouldn't be special then.
    Sorry Ori, I was born okay the first time.

    we really didn't see anything to suggest where the ori city was. Also we didn't see them get in them white rings they could have gone through a stargate first and then through the rings, or even used the rings on one planet and gated the matter stream to the plains.

    as far as we know the ori rule over at least one whole galaxy if not more so they could have even gated to another galaxy and then ringed to the plains.

    that and we dont know if it is a space ship city like atlantis or maybe even a whole planet that they can move around to rule over their galaxies

    I would venture a guess that Celestis was either on a moon close to the planet or at a higher elevation from the rest of the inhabitits of the planet. Both assessible with the rings

    I think it'd be cool if it was a giant disc - like discworld. That'd be the coolest thing for them to use as a base of operations.

    Maybe it's a giant floating continent.

    From http://www.gateworld.net/omnipedia/m...celestis.shtml

    PLAINS OF CELESTIS
    A stunningly beautiful land mass, distant from the village of Ver Eger, where the city of Celestis resides. It is accessible by transport rings.
    Seems we will have to wait for more info
    gumboYaYa: you are all beautiful, your words and openness are what make that shine. don't forget how much talent love and beauty you all have. so for now, peace love love love more love and happy, and thank you, thank you, thank you
    love Torri

    Wherever it is, it does seem to be a place where mortals and ascended can meet. (BTW are Ascendeds immortal?)
    Gracie

    A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them,
    "In every life there is a terrible fight – a fight between two wolves.
    One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
    resentment, and deceit. The other is good: joy, serenity, humility,
    confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness, and compassion."
    A child asked, "Grandfather, which wolf will win?"
    The elder looked the child in the eye. "The one you feed."

    I'm betting that it's somewhere else on the planet that they ringed to. The people we saw were primitive enough that I think that even something a few hundred miles away would probably be safe from them. Not to even mention if it were on another continent or anything. Somehow I don't see them travelling very much. Too much time spent kissing Ori heiney to actually be able to develop much technology or travel or anything.

    You mean like that old Star Trek Movie where everybody goes haywire and to The Edge Of Beyond to find "God" and give him a lift home?

    What was that one called, again?

    The Plains of Celestis, it is a very interesting place. I don't think that they were in the underworld, because the Ori are ascended beings, they donot consider themselves to be evil. Daniel speculated that fire being evil, and from hell, was an Ancient invention. It was probably located on another continent on the planet, it appeared to be one massive city, the water seemed to be fabricated, because they walked over it, whatever it was it was advanced, and astoundingly appealing.

    I sort of thought it was like Olympus so i was thinking it was in the sky and that the 'land' they walk on is right above the clouds were and were something the Orii fabricated.

    Sounds legitimate, since I don't think they could really bring normal corporeal life-forms to an ascended plane. But damn, the place they ringed into on the Planes was the prettiest thing ever.
    why won't my sig rotator work
