UPDATE: I'm sure some of you downloaded an app called ME3: Final Hours which explained some last minute details about the game and its creators. Some of you have been saying that what was said in it disproves the Indoctrination theory. Well this is the passage at which you think it "disproves" the theory.
"And even in November the gameplay team was still experimenting with an endgame sequence where players would suddenly lose control of Shepard's movement and fall under full reaper control. (This sequence was dropped because the GAMEPLAY MECHANIC proved too troublesome to implement alongside dialogue choices)"
SO WHAT I'M GETTING FROM THIS IS THAT THE GAMEPLAY OF SHEPARD BEING INDOCTRINATED WAS SCRAPPED. NOT THE IDEA OR PLOTPOINT OF IT.
NOW I SAY "DREAM" BECAUSE IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE WHO AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THE ME UNIVERSE TO UNDERSTAND INDOCTRINATION. SO WHEN I SAY DREAM JUST REPLACE IT WITH INDOCTRINATION.
I mentioned this before in comments but not the video because I wasn't sure. By choosing the synthetic option you allow reapers to be apart of organic life. Therefore you are still indoctrinated unlike the destroy ending.
"Controlling the reapers is going head to head mentally against the reapers in a power battle you will undoubtedly lose. Synthesis is complete submission to their beliefs. They are both a form of indoctrination, just in two separate ways created to appeal to two different kinds of Shepards (aka, players). It's the subtle difference between an indoctrinated TIM and an indoctrinated Saren."
Next, people are wondering why the Reapers would offer the destroy ending in the indoc process if it means Shep could "escape". Well first and foremost if it wasn't there Shepard would have realized immediately something was up and broken through the indoctrination process then and there. Didn't anyone think it strange that the catalyst sweet talked the other two options? Do you know how many people I know that choose control or synthesis because they thought those were the correct choices? That says a lot.
Also, based on this theory the fate of the Normandy crew/Mass Relays were all conjured up by the indoctrination and the fact that the game needed some form of ending. After all, Shepard wouldn't be breathing if the Mass Relay in the Sol system was destroyed. Plus, the old man and child sequence could also be conjured up or when the stargazer says "one...more...story" could signify DLC. AND YES PEOPLE THAT MEANS IF YOU CHOOSE DESTROY THAN SHEPARD DIDN'T DEFEAT THE REAPERS AND STILL HAS TO DO THAT. THAT'S WHY I BROUGHT UP DLC OR OTHER FORMS OF MEDIA.
