On the same token, are Fallen actually fallen humans who abandoned the rest for reincarnation? If Exo's and Ghosts could be AI based on humans or the encoded humans themselves, there are other applications of the technology.

In one of the Bungie demo's they confirmed that you can see the Fallen's "souls" when you kill them. Perhaps they threw in with some outside power that allows them to reincarnate when killed, granting immortality. I mean they start out with only two arms, and think Earth is theirs after all. Perhaps such immortality was outlawed or frowned upon, or it requires a patron much like the Traveler in order to function. If so the Fallen may have pledged themselves to another extrasolar entity in order to obtain it, and they may have been very resentful about being forced to do so.

I think the martin AI is indicative of higher levels of technology humans once possessed. There may have been a large automated workforce, centrally controlled by AIs based on Mars. This would also lead the Martians to have a large amount of AI war material and directors. That would explain how humanity could build so extensively in a short time, large amounts of automation, and Bungie has a thing about Mars, rebellions and AIs.
