First thread ever.. sorry if it sound stupid….
what if the whole story of OnePiece is actually the ultimate mix between eastern and western stories/philosophy? So far, we havent' been informed much on what is OnePiece.. but from what Luffy has mentioned.. he doesn't wanna conquer everyone.. he just wanna be the 'free-est (most liberated?)' in the entire world... what if the treasure of OnePiece is not really tangible treasure but infact the goal is to achieve something like Nirvana (supposely feel no pain, desire, and sin?)... Roger probably was the closest to OnePiece but at the end he succumbed to the illness that caused his death... although he seem to be happied to die.. so he's was pretty close to being free..... but free from what?
what if something happened 400 yrs ago.. like holywar.. or even Noah Ark or whatever.. the society back there was so advance of some sort.. then it became absolutely corrupted.. then the Tenshi (or whatever those guys are) the creators of the world gather a bunch of 'fruits' (instead of animal) so they gathered those fruits which has all sort of ability on some sort of ships (pluton, pozeidon, etc).. heck... they might even carry those fruit hanging from the 'Adam Tree' the strongest tree in the world.. they might even have the Eve Tree also.. just to make it complete to produce soem fruit or whatever ;) .. then the Tenshi brought up the fruit and the people on their ark and then started the nowadays world.... but somehow this world has become currupted once again.... where people are being controlled or suppressed by the Tenshi and other bad pirates.... kinda like Matrix style..... (was Matrix release before OnePiece?).. so now.. Luffy is sorta like Neo trying to liberated himself to become the pirate king to kinda release all the oppression by the WG and Tenshi.. heck.. he might be the one that unify all the countries today at the end.. and ultimately he'll survivie whatever Roger didn't..... I kinda suspect that maybe just maybe Roger has the Gomu Gomu fruit also.. and he suffer from using Gears... which Luffy should be affected by it.... but the different is.. Luffy should defeat this Gear-related illness and truly become the next pirate king?... another observation is Luffy is 'the Monkey' which is similar to Goku and the famous 'Journey to the West' chinese story, where a group of people travel to the 'west' to acheieve enlightenment..... alot of japanese and chinese stories have this kind of theme also..
how about this stupid ideas of mine? :ninja:
