i'm currently researching and calaberating on what a Isomorphic Algorithms is here
- There is no need. It's already been revealed that Quorra is the last remaining ISO.
there is more to ISOs then the infomation that Quorra is one, like for example, why Flynn calls them Isomorphic Algorithms, what makes them unique, and their history
going by the comic, what makes ISOs unique are:
1 - they weren't programed, they just came out of nowhere from the Sea of Simulation
2 - unlike programs, the pick their own names
3 - a new self created life form, unlimited possibilities, an evolution of the system
4 - their existence creates uncertainty for CLU, who likes keeping his world perfect and orderly, so he didn't like them from the start. he is also jealous that flynn pays more attention to them then flynn's own creations
5 - CLU blames system glitches on the ISOs and their unpredictable and spontaneous coding
6 - CLU thinks the ISOs are tearing the grid code apart, flynn says its more like an evolution. ether way, the code is being rewritten slowly over many cycles
7 - there is segregation between programs and ISOs, so the ISOs build their own city.
8 - while CLUs city looks like a cyber new york, the ISO city looks like a white elvish castle from lord of the rings
9 - eventually there are terrorist bombs set off in both cities razing the tension between both groups
10 - ClU poisons the see of simulations preventing more ISOs from being born, destroys ISO cities and its populations, and blames it on terrorist actions
An unregistered IP is contending that Gem, the Sirens, and Castor are ISOs. I personally dispute this claim, however this position is causing a number of unneeded revisions as people bat opinions around. Is there any evidence to support the theory that these characters are ISOs? -- WarBlade 10:19, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
- He/She is simply assuming that Gem and Castor are ISO's based on there looks. AznPride112 23:19, December 24, 2010 (UTC)
- Why is it that that annoying makeup addict Quorra only has a tatoo on her arm, and not her face, yet every other ISO has markings on their faces? I personnally believe it is because Clu-2's epic! GO CASTOR! CRAY-DAIMON CRAY 00:36, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
- The point where you call Her Hotness "annoying" is the point where your entire question stops making any sense. -- WarBlade 04:20, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
The Perfection Of The ISO's: "Reborn" Edit
but it needs a ship just like his Warship with the color white instead of red, with a Command ship to attach with just like Clu's and a User's Disc Key just like Flynn's it will be the ship of a ISO-safe Haven with Tankers, Jets, 1 Solar Sailer, Tanks, And Recognizers and no repurposing Facility.
and in the grid there will be System Monitors and no Sentries and a user won't create his own program just incase it goes rouge just like clu and no Virus on one of the ISO's and Basics just like Jalen.
you know imagine: prosperity, freedom, peace, no boundaries. and the perfection Of The ISO's will be the way it was once were before and might be again and a user will say, just like clu said in TRON: Evolution: "Let The Future Begin". --JarodMighty (talk) 19:54, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
- ......I'm sorry, but what? Why say 'The Extinction' when it's canonically called The Purge? And the Purge already happened; it's done. Why did you link 'Infinite Possibilities' to 'program' and 'A Digital Utopia' to 'The Grid'? Are you suggesting the Grid might be reset, wiping out the past? And you're pulling all those ideas about ships, havens, and what characters might do out of thin air; I could just as well say that all Alan would need is a really big magnet to accidentally wipe out the whole system, and then they'd have to start fresh, and a new Tron program would be written, without any attachment to Flynn, and he would redeem the whole universe and... see what I mean? Speculation is great, but that's what fanfiction is for. Wikis are for pre-established factual data. --Infiniteviking (talk) 19:11, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
im not interesting fanfictions and not what i meant, i meant the server to be reformatted, and my own suggestion that the infinite possibilites are the programs when programs derezzed and new programs created thats the cycle of infinite possibilites and not the new tron when the old tron is found and taken out of the server and then reformatted that what i meant to say. --JarodMighty (talk) 19:54, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
- All of those things could happen. But there is no basis in canon to indicate that any of them definitely will. It's a nice vision, and the scenario would make a cool fic, but if you want to speculate about a theory that isn't firmly founded on canonical events, you could make a blog post instead of putting it on an article talk page. --Infiniteviking (talk) 20:09, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
Trivia: "ISO Symbols" Edit
These symbols do indeed look like stylized geometric abstractions - "icons" - of the classic Mars and Venus gender symbols . I personally think this is the most immediately striking aspect of these symbols (probably also their conceptual intent, given how they've been paired with very-human-looking binary-gender ISOs), so I think it's the explanation which should probably be offered first.
The hexagons do resemble the schema for benzene rings - which does suggest an "organic" structure and a connection with life - and we've seen some ISO "sourcecode" which superficially approximates molecular DNA helices. But benzene rings are also fundamental to petroleums and plastics - processed (or reprocessed) substances with a variety of applications and forms and properties - largely synthetic and decidedly unalive. Hexagons have also been observed elsewhere in nature - honeycombs, insect eyes, spiderwebs, bubbles, etc - on scales ranging from the miniscule subcomponents of living cells to the massive polar atmospheric phenomena above Saturn. So ISO hexagons might indicate "life", or "natural" or "artificial" origins, or some kind of "drone" function, or scaling within "interlocking" fractal patterns ... or simply be an elegant convergence of form ... or, really, any number of other things. And then there's occult symbolism, in which hexagons and hexagrams might represent supernatural things (like magic, souls and spirits, angels and devils and demons) which are beyond the scope of this topic - but who knows what sorts of data Flynn fed into his machines?
The sideways-T symbol does look like the logical "assertion" sign, known as the Turnstile . It follows the hexagon symbol, which together could be parsed as meaning "[whatever the hexagon declares, identifies, or symbolizes] is a (conditional) fact, self-evident, proven, and known (within some context) to be true". Note that this symbolic statement is conditionally or locally true, not absolutely or universally true (in which case the more certain "Double-Turnstile" symbol would always be used). And note that these two symbols alone are technically a complete and valid statement, but in common usage they would be followed by one or more other symbols to logically conclude something is related to, caused by, implied by, or follows the statement - similar to how "I am" is technically a complete (even a profound) sentence in English but it doesn't actually say much outside of implied contexts, while "I am [something]" is far more definitive and useful and informative. But if this symbol on female ISOs declares something meaningful then it would be consistent (and not-inconsistent!) for the sideways-chevron symbol on male ISOs to also declare something meaningful, and the notational equivalent would be either the "less-than" or the "greater-than" sign (depending on left-or-right orientation, which seems to vary in different depictions). Are we to guess that male ISOs are self-identified as something somehow intrinsically "more" or "less" than their female cognates?
