So it's been about ... 10 years since I've been on here, but I really had no where else to turn for this question!
Without having to rewatch all of seasons 9 and 10, and the movies, I was hoping someone could explain how believers are connected to Ori powers. I've scoured wikipages and blogs across the interwebs but still don't have a thorough or straight answer (assuming there is one).
I know that the more followers and worshipers they had, the more powerful they became. But I don't get the biological/spiritual flow of faith to Ori muscle.
(Bonus question!) if Ori are essentially the same higher-being as the Ancients, how is it possible that the Ancients were still of equal power (that is, until Adria was born) enough to protect the knowledge of the Pegasus Galaxy and Milky Way?
Appreciate any insight and also shout out to the mods for keeping this awesome corner of the internet and part of my adolescence up and running
