I been seeing a lot of this character the Catalog on these forums lately. Here is info relating to Catalog's and maybe their/its purpose here

There were many Catalog's and their task was to record evidence related to a given case, and to determine what would be passed on for the Juridical's(Forerunner Police) to analyze.

They collected information by many means for example direct observation and testimonials.

This means if I am correct for there to be the presence of a Catalog on these forums there must be some sort of crime taking place, crime done, or crime to be done against the Mantle. And a Catalog is here to gather information about that topic.

Important please read community
Here is an important to read thread. It details how the Catalog will speak to us.

Ok from here on out. Unless it is actually part of this ARG at a future date. Section 3 discussion shall be kept to its normal place in its Chat on Mibbit or appropriate threads in the Halo 4 part of the forums.

Thank you for your understanding. Its so others don't get confused between ARG's.
I'm inclined to say Catalog is a separate entity, considering its knowledge scope, which is beyond ONI at the present time.

Still don't see it.
Query: How did High Charity make it to the Lesser Ark in 2552?

Query: What is the average lifespan of an average Macto Cognatus?

Query: What is your current status?

Query: What is your task?

Query: What is the status of Installation 07? Have the Flood been contained there? What of Monitor 117649?
Query: With New Phoenix being reinhabited in Escalation, what's the status of Ivanoff Station?
I guess I'll take a crack at this in case talking to it does yield results,

Query: What is the status of sentient lifeforms in Path Kethona?
I think asking it questions may not yield the results we want. But initiating a discussion on the topic may help. As I said Catalog's are used to get information pretty much. Meaning unless we ask the right questions no answers will be given.

I have a theory its Observing us. Hence why I asked for a testimonial. So we can answer to our supposed crimes.
Query: Is there a countermeasure or "cure" to the Flood that does not involve the firing of the Halo Array?

Query: Are humans worthy of the Mantle or must they first show their capabilities through a "test" of sorts?

Is it observing us though? If it is, that doesn't mean we committed a crime.

I'm more intrigued as to how Catalog survived the firing of the Halo Array. I know Catalog is part machine, but isn't it still biological?

There was more than one Catalog. So meaning its quite possible one survived that way.

And its a theory its observing us. Humanity going against the Mantle isnt out the possibility also.

I left everything open till we get more evidence. I am sure our friend Catalog has more to say. :)

I know. However, using the correct terminology might make it more likely to post.

So for now, it is Catalog.
We are assembled. We are keeping tabs on Catalog.

We are closer to the key.
Come on, be more welcoming and nice to guests, dear forumites. You may scare it off.

These A.Is have a fun habit of revealing more about themselves over time without having to be interrogated.
Catalog refers to a rate of distinct Forerunners who are refered to as simply Catalog. Catalog is composed of individual members that are collectively known as Catalog. Catalog often takes on the carapace due to past crimes as a punishment and a journey towards redemption. Catalog gathers information and uploads it to the Juridical Network for higher rates of Juridicals to use to pass judgment. Catalog has recorded notable Forerunners such as Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting (Iso Didact), Shadow of Sundered Star (Ur Didact), First Light Weaves Living Song (Librarian), and others.

Interesting, "flamma fumo est proxime" means "when there's smoke, fire is near" in Latin.

Query: Does "when there's smoke, fire is near" indicate that the return of the Flood is eminent?

I'm not sure what the time stamps reflect, if anything. Catalog made seven posts before glitching on the 8th. 8/8/8 for that perhaps?
Wait... High Charity used a portal at mars (edom)?
