I don't recall any specific rumors about The Nine being Ahamkara. In fact, I'd think it unlikely since the Speaker babbles something about getting The Nine to help. Given the Great Ahamkara hunt, seeking the assistance of Ahamkara would seem fairly odd.

The best guess we have about The Nine at the moment is from what Xur says:

- We came up from the dust and burrowed into flesh for warmth and became something new.
- Bodies come and go but the cells remember and if they forget the Nine remember it for us.
- The Awoken did not make a choice...but we did. (Presumably talking about how each Awoken is entwined with some other mysterious being or force.)
- We saw the colony fail...not knowing what we saw.

And, of course, there's Ghost Fragment: Legends 2:


The Nine are survivors of the cis-Jovian colonies who made a compact with an alien force to ensure their own survival.

The Nine are deep-orbit warminds who weathered the Collapse in hardened stealth platforms.

The Nine are ancient leviathan intelligences from the seas of Europa or the hydrocarbon pits of Titan.

The Nine arrived in a mysterious transmission from the direction of the Corona-Borealis supercluster.

The Nine are the firstborn Awoken and their minds now race down the field lines of the Jupiter-Io flux tube.

The Nine are Ghosts who pierced the Deep Black without a ship and meditated on the hissing silence of the heliopause.

The Nine are the aspects of the Darkness, broken by the Traveler's rebuke, working to destroy us from within.

The Nine is a viral language of pure meaning.

The Nine are the shadows left by the annihilation of a transcendent shape, burned into the weft of what is.

But who knows if any of those or true. The one about the cis-Jovian colonies sounds promising, though...
