1) I made many researches on the Nuvapedia (the equivalent of BS01 in french) and BA books, and I finally find nothing for this information :/

1. In Downfall, as Matoro traveled through the giant waterfall to Karda Nui, he heard a voice in his head that told him, "Put on the mask". The origins of the voice were never completely explained, though you said at one point that it might have been the Ignika. I was wondering: did this voice belong to Velika? Was he trying to influence the course of history by ensuring Mata Nui's revival?
2. Similarly, in the Toa Nuva Blog, Lewa mentions that "some weird voice" sent him up to Mata Nui to retrieve the Great Sundial and bring it to Metru Nui. The Order of Mata Nui later shrank the sundial and gave it to Takanuva so that he could find the Codrex. Did this voice belong to Velika? Or was it perhaps Artakha? (The latter would make sense, considering his close ties to the Order of Mata Nui.)

Who would win in a race: Toa Iruini or Toa Pohatu using their respective masks (Pohatu using Kakama)

Was the chute monitor threatened by Nidhiki on Metru Nui actually Kongu? Or was it just a le-matoran wearing a Ruru?
If it was Kongu, why did he replace his mask with a Miru?

Mr. Farshtey, I was wondering about the biology of the creatures of the Matoran Universe.
How exactly do they move? Considering that they are mostly robotic, do they have an organic brain which sends neuronic impluses to the muscle and tissues in the armor? And what organic organs do they have, as I have seen references to lungs and a stomach in several of the books. Most of all, how, if at all, did the Great Beings expect the inhabitants of the MU to function as repair nanobots, as Metru Nui is the only inhabited island so far that seems to serve any real function in the Mata Nui Robot, other than living space.

I think that has already been proven that it was him, but I could be wrong.

Random BIONICLE questions I have Some off these you might not be able to answer. Just skip them.
What happened to Nuju's eypiece when he became a Turaga?
Is it possible that the mask of light and the mask of shadow were made out of great disks like the Vahi was?
Can you confirm the name of Keetungu's species?
Do the visorak still live on Metru Nui?
In The Mask Of Light is the "Disaponted Po-Matoran" in the kolii match scene a Ta-Koro fan?

1a) We know that Matoran affiliated with Stone and Earth have the elemental trait of increased strength. My question is, would this elemental trait manifest in a physical manner through increased muscle mass? Or does the increased strength of Po- and Onu- matoran not affect their physiology (meaning they have the same amount of muscles as everyone else)?
1b) If Po- and Onu- matoran do in fact have more muscle mass, could Toa of Stone and Toa Earth conceivably look slightly bulkier or more muscular than other types of Toa? Lack of mention in the story could be explained by the fact that armor plating would probably smooth out major aesthetic deviations.
2) Speaking of strength, do you think Glatorian are naturally stronger than Humans (I think I asked you this question earlier, but the answer wasn't clear)? Keep in mind that they're a long-lived warrior race, with the average individual being around 7 feet tall.
3) We know they're not as strong as Toa, but could a Glatorian with strength implants lift over 1 ton?
4) Can Glatorian run faster than Humans? I mean, taller height=longer legs=longer strides, right?
Thanks for your time,

1. His mask devolved into a noble, that's what happened
2. He wouldn't have that information
3. He wouldn't have that information, all we know is that he's a sapient rahi.
4. No, the visorak all fled at Vakama's behest. The rahaga and turaga Dume helped to rebuild Metru Nui and they all came to re-settle metru nui when Teridax was beat up.
5. That's kind of irrelevant don't you think?

Depnds on how far away the finish line is. As long as it is in Iruini's line of sight Iruini would win. If the finish line is not in his line of sight Pohatu would win.

1) I don't see them as having "muscle mass" as we define it. They have organic tissue that links their mechanical parts together. We have never referred to that as being muscle.
2) More than some humans, not more than others. There is a vast range of strengths across the human race. You might be stronger than me, but a professional bodybuilder might be stronger than you.
3) No idea
4) Again, more than some, not more than others.

1) It has never been confirmed that their brain is organic. It may well be AI, especially since we know their consciousness can be downloaded and transferred in the red star.
2) The only organic organs that have been confirmed are the lungs. They would not have a stomach because they do not eat like we do.
3) Metru Nui is where we focused the story and it was the robot's brain. A robot does not need a lot of other organs - it doesn't need a digestive system, etc. It would have things like lubrication systems, power systems and such that would run throughout the body, and we do know there were inhabited islands in many parts of the body (remember, Metru Nui was a big trade port at one time - they had to be trading with somebody). And you are also forgetting about Karda Nui, which was inhabited and was the heart.

1) No, it wasn't Velika.
2) That actually came from the story bible, and there was no explanation given for whose voice it was supposed to be.

1) I will check.
2) Where does it say the Makuta were not created until after the robot launched?
