In Advent David reveals the Black Goo to be advanced nano A.I. (not organic), made by the Engineers.  So why did the Engineer on LV-223 come across as averse to David, and Peter Weyland/ humanity for creating A.I., if his own race had earlier created nano A.I., and when he was ready to drop a payload of the stuff on us 2,000 years earlier?

Also, did anyone think David's sketches of Engineer limbs in this short was influenced by Giger's other work, San Gottardo?

it does bring into play various potentials and has been good to debate but it still lacks clarity for me. Black Goo, Life, Pathogen,A.I,Lifeform,Glitch... wtf...;)sorry

My original interpretation of the way the Engineer looked at David and that it is of empathy or sympathy towards a FELLOW creation. before the act of ripping his head off. 

basically i thought both were creations. david a synthetic creation of man. The Engineer on 223 an organic creation from The Elders or higher beings.

That was how i saw it.

BTW I think after A:C there is the possibility the Engineers 223 will be genetically enhanced beings possibly chosen ones form Planet 4.

Nathan, David did not say the nanoparticles were non organic. I googled nanoparticle and the Wiki just says it means particles of a certain size.

"particles between 1 and 100 nanometres (nm) in size. In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit with respect to its transport and properties. Particles are further classified according to diameter."


The definition of nanotechnology covers a lot of areas too.

"Nanotechnology as defined by size is naturally very broad, including fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics, microfabrication, molecular engineering, etc."
Wouldn't David be talking about the molecular biology and organic chemistry nanotechnology sciences, since that is what he was experimenting with? Those are organic. Here is how Wikipedia describes those.

"Molecular Biology concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between biomolecules in the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA, and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions."

"Organic Chemistry is a chemistry subdiscipline involving the scientific study of the structure, properties, and reactions of organic compounds and organic materials, i.e., matter in its various forms that contain carbon atoms."
