So if you've played Journey, you've probably had to sit through all those mysterious cutscenes-but what exactly do they mean?

In particular, the ones involving the Ancient Glyphs are incredibly fascinating, because the player is merely shown the images. There is no dialogue, no words, nothing of any kind that shows what eactly is going on in these images. Even the ending is ambiguous- *SPOILER! it seems as though your player (who appears to be the chosen one in the glyphs) walks into a white light...and is reborn. *SPOILER END!*


It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it's been bothering me a little that I can't figure out what's going on. Does anyone have any theories or ideas as to the backstory and plotline of Journey? Share below if you do-you might be able to clear up some befuddlement!
