Very nice points, HS.

The latest from Server 4 definitely puts to rest my long-standing theory that the Forerunners somehow created the Flood.

Back to the drawing board... ;)

Simple: They used the flood to make something much.... more.

There were hints to this in the Library in Halo 1. There was strange blue almost liquid-like energy in large portions. Then, in the first Arbiter level of Halo 2, we see the same energy in smaller containers that are obviously, explosive. These are ONLY in research stations, and usually near the Flood.

There are VERY good reasons for the study and containment for the Flood, even if they didn't initially create it.

The only reason I see is some kind of immortality for the race. I believe they succeeded, but the Flood kept evolving itself, and feeding off the Forerunners. Even though they were able to become immortal figures, it didn't even matter because they could still be infected, and the Flood got way too out of hand. They had to activate the Halos and flee completely into their Shield World. But they were too proud and egotistical of their accomplishment. They were able to cheat death and kept the Flood around in containment, hoping their reclaimers would find all this out, leaving many clues behind throughout the galaxy to find it. To reclaim all the lost knowledge the our ancestors left behind for us, when we were ready. They weren't expecting the covenant, and they weren't expecting anyone to mistake their intentions. And thus, the covenant released the flood, THREE TIMES. Therefore to end the Flood threat, the Halos will have to be fired, or we have to figure out another way to stop the damn thing.

Are you sure about this?

Anyways, they personally kept the flood in containment even after they activated the Halos. There must be a reason to WHY.
