The Quest To Find Raxxla

However her MALE counterpart is far more interesting. The Tellus system has a type L star with 8 moons. The word tellus, telluris is also a Latin common noun for "land, territory; earth," as is terra, "earth, ground". In literary uses, particularly in poetry, it may be ambiguous as to whether the goddess, a personification, or the common noun is meant.
The Greek for Tellus is Gaia and of course, Gaia is known as Mother Earth.
 
Guys in my search for Raxxla

Also, the 8th moon story, I think in the game we are NOT having 8 visible moons, but instead is the 8th in the real life. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Neptune's_moons, Triton is permit blocked, owned by Mother Gaia faction (no way of getting the permit) and is actually the 8th moon of Neptune.

CMDR. Briben source of ideas was maybe (expeculation) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_of_the_Lifemaker, just a theory haha.
The dates match with elite development time, and they had taloids instead of thargoids. Instead of titan he used triton...

I have to say that not having ANY say from frontier about how to get the permits for Lave moon and Triton is quite disappointing and the reason I'm just firing the game once in a while. At some point there is absolutely nothing else to research towards Raxxla.

Spent several hours last week around Calisto, real life 8th moon of Jupiter, based on exactly this idea. Next need to try Saturns 8th moon Enceladus

Edit: may have to do a recount of the moons and try again :)

About "mother of galaxies", just to remind to our English speakers excellent fellow-threaders that in some other localisation of the game, the wording would be translated as "mother of all the galaxies". Can Cassiopea be called this ? Or shall we remind the many times proven inconsistencies in FD translations, astronomy and story unfolding and say: "meh.. same thing..." ?
( Some other subtle differences in the other verses too. Keywords: корона , cima, etc..)

Gravity is the mother of all galaxies. Without it we'd all just be hydrogen soup.

I feel like, since the game creators first language is English, it should be safe to assume that the way it's written in English is how it should be taken

From my understanding on google which I guess the literal translation is The Mother of Galaxies can refer as the Milky Way itself.
Meaning the only Galaxy that bore life.

Oh, yes, am I dumb ? Let just have the others players around the World searching for their own greasy Raxxla wherever they think it may be. Of course. Very FD-esque !
Err.. but what if the translation in other languages was more revealing, specific than in English ??? Naaah.. Can't be. Or... ?

Besides when looking at the night sky, MW surrounded by trillions of galaxies really looks like their "mother" to me.

Life meaning humans and other species.
 
You are saying they did a "public post" of art, to NOT engage in a question about the posted art? And here I am, engaging with a internet rando about my public post about their public art. It gets pretty Meta ...
Confirmation bias is real.

Edit:

Whenever someone is asked something, they can answer in a few ways

1. Positive/Affirmation
2. Negative/Refutation
3. Does not answer/No data

For some weird reason, you have a leap of logic from "Does not answer" equating to "Positive its related to Raxxla".

Its as if I ask the government "Do aliens exist?" and interpreting their silence as "aliens exist".

There can be many reasons as to why they do not engage.

getting caught up on all that I missed is tedious but Im starting to slowly get there. I was passed on a theory by a friend and colleage in Canonn Resarch Group. For now, its just their theory but Im going to look into it and see where it goes. Its interesting enough. If it leads anywhere I'll post what I find here... As to not continue to flood this place with just theories. Which there a lot of!

Good luck commanders, fly safe! o7
This thread’s primary purpose is to exchange information on theories related to Raxxla, and any corroboration/refutation evidence that may arise!

And a bit of friendly banter too!

From a science and language point of view:
Mother of all galaxies would be either “gravity” or “big bang”
Mother of galaxies (of which Milky way is one) could be Sagittarius A*, since Milky Way also has satellite galaxies, or again could be gravity, or big bang.
Mother of Milky Way could be Sag A*, gravity, big bang, Gaia or other mythological goddesses.

Don’t see how this helps 🤓
Need more breakfast coffee!

I would not completely discount Cassiopeia. The toast could be poorly written by drunk Dark Wheelers (FD). ;)

I have very little faith in the Cassiopeia though. There is no Omphalos candidates in that direction. The wording would be incredibly clumsy, if it was Cass. If worded properly, it would be far to obvious (not a little bit) for a Raxla hint.

I'm not gonna spend any time on Cassiopeia, but I'm happy that others do. In case I'm wrong. (y)

From a (Greek) mythological point of view Hera is the mother of galaxies. Or at least our Galaxy.

No sure how this helps either ;)

Gravity, Big bang, dust, energy, dark matter. Lots of diffuse options in science. In reality, the reasons for galaxy formations are complex. To an extent it's beyond current science.

In mythology there are plenty of creation stories that are linked to the night sky. Many of them talk of a world egg or similar.

The toast is made by The Dark Wheel. When they talk of galaxies, it could well be the old 8 galaxies from Elite.
 
An Akousmata (words of wisdom) of Pythagoras: “ Question: What is the oracle of Delphi?
Answer: The tetraktys, or the harmony where the Sirens dwell.” from Iamblichus' (a neoplatonist)- 'Life of Pythagoras'.

Plato describes a series of 8 planets circling the Spindle of Necessity "and up above on each of the rims of the circles a Siren stood, borne around in its revolution and uttering one sound, one note, and from all the eight there was the concord of a single harmony" (music of the spheres). From 'the Myth of Er'.

Based on Platos descriptions ... the eighth planet would be the Moon.
 
I've been expanding a bit on the RA 20 LA. As I suspect that 'Princess Astrophel' refers to Vega / the weaver girl, I wondered if 'LA' could be Lyra and Aquila?
The bridge between Vega (Lyra) and Altair (Aquila) in the story of the cow heard and the weaver girl, is known as the magpie bridge (anyone remember the mineral magpie? :)).

Magpie bridge:

Overlaying this with a map of the Cygnus constellation gives this (RA 20h highlighted):

As we see, there is a common strip, between about Dec. 33° and Dec. 40°. Center is around Dec. 35°.

For fun I also overlaid the Raxxla symbol:

As we see the symbol fits reasonably well with the bridge and RA 20h line. The horizontal path of the symbol does not match up with the equatorial parallels or the galactic plane. It would probably align well with a line parallel to the ecliptic (earth's orbit around the sun), but quite a bit above.

Tinfoil:

The Raxxla symbol is a stylized version of the Mars relic. A navigation tool to get to Raxxla. The 33 dots gives the declination. Tilted parallel to the ecliptic and lifted to Dec. 33°, it will show the way. o_O
 
If this has been noticed then apologies but I have an observation that may add grounds to the "Raxxla is a doorway/gateway to another place".

Somewhere in this thread mention of another galaxy was made that could be hidden dormant on another server. Well, has anyone noticed the two superclusters of stars in the Galactic map that is outside of the galaxy ( Eastside, below the galactic plane )? They are not part of a background skybox as they do move as you pan around the map and they are huge! Perhaps our next destination is right in front of our eyes... it's just getting there.

Those are the large and small Magellanic clouds. Dwarf galaxies close to the Milky Way. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magellanic_Clouds

They can technically be considered part of the MW, so It wouldn't be impossible that they are 'active'. Even though FD have stated that there are no plans for other galaxies.

HD 2270 seems like a nice jump of point, both to them and Andromeda.

eta Cygni is close to the centre of your last plot but there's nothing on it in EDSM (I checked a handful of alternative names and since it's in the Hipparcos catalogue and the bright star catalogue, i.e. has HIP and HR designations, I would expect it to be in-game).
As I have mentioned before, I wonder whether TDW toast and Astrophil mention are intended to direct us to a system or a heading to take within a system. Unless you guess the system, though, or get TDW invite and hear it from them (if they know), then its going to be through looking at the problem in the right way that leads to the breakthrough. Given how long the game has been going without it being stumbled upon, I'm not expecting blind luck to get us far with either Raxxla or TDW base. Depending on proximity, I might be able to get in-game and check eta Cygni later today, or at least see if it's there.
