    Default Garden of Eden

    Any thoughts as to what the GF Eden actually is?

    My personal theory is it's a Garden. It has many of the same design elements like concentric glowing rings on a central disc with suspended projections.

    well, in the bible, there was a garden of Eden. you know, with adam and eve and the snake and all that. so, it is likely that there have always been Gardens in the FF8 world, with Eden being the original one. that explains why it looks kinda like Balamb Garden with roots.
    If you put spinach on a sausage, do you grow gills?

    There comes a time in every man's life where he must make his very own FF8 website. For me, that time is now: www.start.at/iceff8

    This theory has come up before, but no-one tried to expand on it 'till now...

    Is there a clear, full picture of the GF Eden available anywhere? It'd probably be helpful.

    I've noticed that Eden's attack is called 'Eternal Breath'. Could be a reference to the 'eternal source of life' that the Garden of Eden was said to be?

    Strange, then, that Eden isn't a Holy-elemental summon.

    My apologies if anyone has seen a thread like this before. Here is a site with some excellent images of Eden in action:

    Obviously it's more organic than Balamb Garden. Clearly there is a female torso attached to the underside and it has a head mounted to the front of the main disc.

    The perfect organic version of a Garden?

    The rest are either blew up or engaged in senseless war with each other.
