    How do they get passed the first 120+ years if they originally only had 5 years food supply? Would enough people have been dying in the first 100 years? It seems like a long gap to have gone without a steady food supply.

    Ok, clearly it's gonna be near-impossible to disprove this theory by going at the same perspective as Mat, so let's take this from a different point of view: Is there anything that truly confirms there isn't any plant life on the Axiom? Yes, the captain doesn't know what a plant is, but that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't plants on board. The captain barely knows the controls of the ship, so it's just as likely that he doesn't know the complete layout. Just like how cities and farms aren't located in the same areas, it's possible that the passengers are held in one area and plants in another, cultivated, cared for, and transported to the passenger area via robots. And, what's better, the cultivation area wouldn't even need to be that big, compared to the whole ship. They would only need to cultivate a select few plants, in order to account for all the necessary nutrients. Not to mention, the ships first took off in 2105, 84 years in the future from our current year, and with how quickly technology is advancing it's likely they'd've created a super food, one that provides all necessary nutrients, and even if they didn't have that in 84 years from now, they'd still have 5-10 years to create it (how long it would take for the original solid food supply to run out). Also, about the dead body issue, NASA is planning a system where they freeze the bodies of astronauts and have a robotic arm break the body apart. The Axiom likely implemented the same system, with the bits of the body then being expelled from the ship. This is a great theory and all but, after looking at the facts and possibilities, it just seems like a bit of a stretch to say wall-e is about cannibalism.

    I feel like everyone forgot about algae and fungi... Sustainable, not plants, algae grow by photosynthesis and fungi on waste, together produce all necessary nutrients required by the human body and so on. Perhaps they originally had some other rations as well but the most logical thing to do is to have a backup plan (e.g. bioreactors) Incase they had a prolonged journey.

Now, you don't have to believe in the authority of the bible to learn about it, in this case, understanding the biblical creation narratives in their cultural context. And who knows?

    Matpat you haven't talked about the laws of diminishing returns. Mainly the fact that the human body doesn't need JUST calories to survive. Those calories need to be compiled from specific quantities of various minerals and other such nutrients. Once you, me, or any other human has ingested and used those nutrients they do not reemerge as the same usable substances...that's why we have pee and poop. They're called waste products for a reason. So even if you start with a healthy robust population, after even one generation of ouroboros like existence you wind up with a population of starving, malnourished, fatties. Your theory (which, like what most people call theories, isn't a theory at all, at best it is a hypothesis, but I get it Film Hypothesis doesn't really make for a good roll off the tongue ISboth channel name....anyway what was I saying...) goes up in flames without a supplemental supply of vitamins and nutrients. It's much more likely that the regenerative buffet is something much more like the sort of the protype replicators that were described as protein resequencers in the Star Trek series Enterprise. Now, where did the proteins come from to be resequenced? Perhaps that source of raw materials was cadavers, but then the finished product wouldn't really be people slushies anymore than a carrot that grows over someone's decomposing corpse would be considered a people carrot. The process would fundamentally change the initial substance. I can absolutely see a point to the idea that the all knowing nearly all powerful Auto would keep the people ignorant to this fact, in fact Auto would probably be keeping the people as dumb as possible to increase their dependence on the ship and its AI overlord. So it is totally believable that Auto could have designed and initiated the procedure to resequence the dead passengers and crew into a nutrient rich compound for consumption by the living, that isn't exactly the same as tossing cadavers into a BnL Blend-e and serving up cupcake flavored people smoothies. However, a glaring problem here is that presumably this technology would have had to be present at launch for Auto to make use of it, unless we assume Auto could invent new technology, which doesn't seem to be the case as the entire existence of the people of the Axiom has a just getting through this the best that we can kind of attitude. In fact it seems like the entire point of directive A113 was just to hang out and wait until a better solution presented itself (Which also brings up the question of how did Auto handle that conversations with Captain Reardon in 2110? "Alright Auto, it's day 1,825 time to go back to Earth!" "Oh that'll be fun, but Captain, I got an idea. Instead of going back to Earth, what if we just didn' ever." "Hmmm, that's kinda strange Auto, but hey why not." Also why does directive A-113 not cease sending the Eve robots to look for plant life on Earth if it directs the ship's AI to just keep the people in space indefinitely? 🤔).

    Well going by the definition of Cannibalism. Even if they're using dead people to create their regenerative buffet, the food is no longer the flesh of their own species. It's smoothies, and whatever else they eat, but it'd be clearly processed so much to become good that it no longer qualifies as human flesh

    Technically you could also consume human waste. With enough processing(mainly getting ride of germs and other things that could make you sick) human waste could be consumed. The reason for this is because human and animal aren’t able to absorb all nutrients the first time. As a result poop is nutritious. In fact many animals eat their own poop when times are tough. And in the past out houses were built over pig’s sty because pigs could get their food from our poop. Plus with basically the entire human population on board, you’re going to have a lot of it. Also there’s no evidence that any human waste is being thrown away on the ship.

    With the passengers being sedentary and only requiring 1400 calories per day. to gain the weight they clearly have they would need to be over eating. So either the ship isn't regulating how much food they can eat, which would cause food stores to run out faster. Or the computer is making sure they eat to much to fatten up the future food source. the latter seems to track with the theory.
