If Outsider is really the Hivemind, then laws of physics would not apply to the nids.

Ah yes, the Outsider. If this C'tan was truely the master of the Tyranid, then this would solve the distance problem one would face dueing intergalactic travels(phase shift technology), for the C'tans are masters of the cosmos. Personally, i dislike the Outsider theory but it is currently the most accepted explaination for the hivemind.

This brings up the idea that some believe that the Outsider might be in the Dyson's Sphere. For a giant sphere the size of the Earth's orbit can only be built by an advanced technology with alot of resources. The purpose, to make the most energy efficent power source available for use "collect all of the stars released energy". Only one species could, or even would do such a thing, the Necrons. The reason, to feed the C'tan. Sure the Imperium could build a Dyson's Sphere, but it would require the technological know how which is currently lacking, and the resources of entire star systems. Not to mention the manpower of what the Imperium puts on the Cadian Gate into this project.

There could be more then four C'tans, after all, i read somewhere that Ferris Magnus (Iron Hands Primarch) defeated a C'tan that looked like a sandworm. Perhaps, a different C'tan runs the Tyranid as the hivemind or another is within the Dyson's Sphere. Also, with the Necron's phase shift technology, the C'tans and their followers could travel from one side of the galaxy to the other in seconds so the C'tan could also be within the other galaxies slowly taking root there. One thing is for sure, none of use truely know for sure till GW finally decides to reveal them.

The starmap does not show the realm of the webway so the Eldar and Dark Eldar cities/craftworlds are not shown unless in the actual universe that we know of. Also this goes for the Warp.

well, why do the C'tan try to kill all living species they encounter right now ? I have no freaking idea, but that's what they do.

Otherwise, It's quite cool, this is gonna be useful for my map making project, :D

Also, wat is the Dyson sphere? What does it do? I havn't been into 40k for years now, and this didn't exist the last time I played the TT version...
