So I was thinking and I think I figured out what the black goo really is. So after seeing Alien: Covenant something that made me wonder is why when the ampules were dropped on the citadel why when they burst open did they form a cloud that seemed to display a form of sentience and seek out the engineers rather than just rain down as the goo, well I propose that perhaps we have seen what causes the mutation; the motes as we know that the pods that contain the Neomorph motes were mutated as a result of DAVID's bombing of the citadel, but when we see the cloud it seems to be made up of many particles that reminded me of the motes that we see infect Ledward now what I am saying is that the black goo might act in a similar manner to the mist around the alien eggs keeping them dormant or in this case the motes dormant explaining why the MUTHUR promotional material said that they had to be kept around a meter apart to keep them dormant and as evidence I point to the infection of Dr.Holloway and Fifield as we see them mutate which may be a combined reaction of the black goo and the motes contained within the black goo as the black goo is destroying the genetic material of them the motes are simply trying to substitute genetic material in those gaps in the gene sequence I say this because we know that the pure black goo that the sacrificial engineer ingested broke down his genetic material now I know some of you are going to point to the fact that the genetic material reassembled but I will get to that, and as evidence for the motes filling in gaps in the genetic sequence the citadel bombing is evidence as seeing as how the engineers began to turn black and seemingly charred I think that they might not have been charred but transformed as the motes as they entered them they began multiplying and their immune system recognised an additional genetic sequence and began attacking however seeing as how the motes began to out number the white blood cells and other cells got caught in the middle destroying them completely and the motes simply did what it was they did fix gaps in the genetic sequence however since there was nothing there to fix they simply substituted the entirety of the genetic code they have forcing the body to begin to change possibly into a giant mote and this would support my claims as well as we see the infected Holloway and Fifield's skin are beginning to take on a black color. As for the sudden recombination of DNA in the intro of prometheus, I believe pure water as there was no microbial life at the time actually forces the black goo to reassemble the DNA however the damage had been done to the genes of the engineer making the amount of materials it had to use smaller and explaining all of the Junk DNA we have as the remnants of the DNA that was saved but could not be implemented to usefulness.
Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair
