I got the impression that it implies you're not the same character, just a recurring concept, destined to follow a similar path, and as such, you have almost visions of previous encounters with the Jjaro.
doccarnby: I downloaded the demos for PiD-Marathon, but I could never get them to work. I was a bit disappointed to start up the new version and not have the Jjaro section. I thought it was rather cool, especially with fog, but I guess taking it out for accuracy is... ok.
rampancy: I think another reason why they took it out is that it introduces the questionably non-canon assumption that the protagonist of Marathon is same protagonist from PiD, a concept explored in Marathon Eternal (and a distinct possibility if you read the terminals in M1 which explain the technology of the Marathon universe) but never explicitly made by Bungie themselves.
