Light Cycles and Light Discs

on Monday, June, 18, 2012 11:15 PM
I got to pondering as I sometimes do, and I came up with a theory about light cycles and identity disks in TRON: Uprising.
First the bikes. The design in Uprising is radically different from what we have seen before. Maybe it is because that each city has their own "style" of bike in each generation. Same basic bike, but the design looks different, and the internal components may be tweaked (e.g., a bike from TRON city is faster than a bike from Argon in the same generation.
Part two has to do with the discs (disks?). We see TRON split his disc/k in half (not like Rinzler does) and give the top half to Beck. When he did this, his white lightsuit turned into his black lightsuit. When Beck assembled his back half with TRON's front half and placed it on his back, his lightsuit changed to TRON's white lightsuit. Here is my theory: the bottom half of the disk/c contains the program's base code and memories. The top half is interchangeable, and can be used to change outfits. I can see a female program standing in front of a closet full of disk halves deciding what to wear to the club.

What do you think?

I think you're on to something, but maybe in reverse. You see, the white "outfit" Tron sports is no mere cosmetic addition like the clothes you and I wear. It is literally his base code. In the cartoon, it's supposed to represent his 1.0 appearance from the first movie. I see it as such: with the damage Tron took from Clu, the only way to survive until he established that Fortress of Solitude and healing chamber was to revert back to his 1.0 code, a "deeper" level of his identity.

When he exchanged disk halves with Beck, he was actually giving Beck his basic 1.0 code. Outdated, for sure, but more than enough for Beck, who was never programmed for system security in the first place. Therefore, Tron has to permanently assume his "black outfit" that clearly shows the scars when he is not healed.

Your theory would work better if we had seen Tron take off and reassemble his disk when he revealed his true identity to Beck. Instead, he seems to go from Rinzler appearance to classic Tron in an instant. I think the Rinzler persona is more of an outfit than the white suit. That's how I perceive it, anyway, but for all we know, the show creators might have an entirely different explanation...or none whatsoever.order abortion pill abortion pill buy online where to buy abortion pill

Why use Norton AV or AVG to protect your computer when you could be using TRON instead!?

Good point. That theory has more credence because it seems to me that Beck fights better with the white suit on too.
How about this: what if it worked more like an update? The bottom half of the disc would be the program's base code, and the top half is like a version number. Beck applied TRON's 1.0 Version number to his programming, giving him more of the skills needed to be a system monitor. He can switch back to his Beck 1.0 version number when he needs to be a mechanic, in which all of his programming is towards fixing bikes. I'm thinking of programs that get automatic updates. You don't have to uninstall the program, the software just applies it on top of the rest.where to buy abortion pill http://blog.bitimpulse.com/template/default.aspx?abortion-types buy abortion pill online
