Genshin Impact is the free mobile game taking over my brain. The worldbuilding is complex and I knew that somewhere in there was a theory. I was RIGHT! I think I found the character that BROKE the world of Genshin Impact. You see, the biggest weakness in the world of Teyvat is not what you would expect. What will bring about the END?

    I disliked Zhong'li when he just gave away his gnosis to the fatui like it was a flower he found on the ground. Like give it to ME, I helped YOU. The fatui just tried to destroy Liyue!
    After watching this video I came to the conclusion that I hate him even more.

      @Muzza Clips Yes and for a God who's ruled a city for over 3,700 years he stupidly gave it away to the Fatui, the same people who awoke an ancient god who then tried to destroy the very place he wanted to protect . His decision to hand it over out of nowhere lead to this theory being made. For being God of contracts he surprisingly has no sense of business or even common sense. He didn't even bother storing some extra mora for the citizens of Liyue or even himself. Being tired of repetitiveness is different from making stupid decision that could end up destroying Teyvat. Remember that the fatui serve the abyss and the abyss want to overthrow/kill the archons.

    i may have a different take on this but what zhongli did will help teyvat in the long run. as you said the gnosis is what was used to help create the mora as it harnesses power from celestia in order to make it which is exactly what zhongli and that archons (venti , raiden shogun , tsaritsa) are against . celestia gaze on the people of teyvat as people they can control , the destruction of the 8th nation khaenriah was destroyed because the humans went too far without a god controlling their nation. during the catacalysm (which is what we see at the start of the game) we see the sustainer of heavenly principals who we assume to be a god of celestia come to attack us and khaenriah. from what we know of the cataclysm (which isn’t much ) is that it was a huge war that took place 500 years ago in all regions of teyvat. what took place was the catalyst that made the tsaritsa (cryo archon) change her view on the gods gaze and establish the fatui harbingers and start “her rebellion against the devine”
    spoilers ahead!!
    the archons are not from celestia in fact venti (aka barbatos anemo archon) hates celestia and has since he ascended to become one of the original 7 archons. the celestia gods have always had it out for him because instead of ruling like the previous tyrant in mondstadt did he stepped down as his role for ruling over anyone to give to give the city the freedom they deserved . he was punished by celestia for this weakening his power and other archons thought him to be bad for doing this. though he never abandoned his people he walked amongst them and stepping in when he had to. the catacalysm was when he had to step in to defeat one of his allies who was corrupted by an alchemist of khaenriah “gold” . he defeated his dragon friend durin which took all his power to do so and another dragon friend of his dvalin was corrupted in the process. the god of time which was venti’s friend also died during this war and we don’t know how . venti has his gnosis “stolen” by signora one of the fatui harbingers but it’s theorised he always knew it would be taken so he never put up a fight
    nothing is known with what zhongli did during the catacalysm so we don’t know his involvement and what he thinks of celestia but giving away his gnosis cuts all ties he has had with celestia left and he is going against them by stepping down as an archon. so take that as you will
    the raiden shogun the electro archon was always 2 people. much to everyone’s surprise it was revealed that the archon baal had a twin sister ei and they shadowed each other taking each other’s places when needed. both ruled over inazuma together until the catacalysm which sadly took the life of baal leaving ei alone and without her sister. she already lost so much but losing her sister is what changed her and so she retreated into her own mind to stay there forever in a state of “eternity” only awakening if someone challenged her. during this time she couldn’t take her gnosis with her and so she happily gave it up . she no longer wanted what the gods wanted and cut the ties with the gods after the catacalysm . and then declared the vision hunt decree where she stole all the visions they gave out…
    which comes to another point the visions gifted by the celestia gods are seen as you catching the gods gaze with prosperity when we find it’s the opposite. sure they give you power but the consequence means that if you are ever to part with it you would lose all your ambition, hope and even memories. celestia use these visions to control teyvat just as they use the gods .
    my point in all of this is that maybe zhongli recognised that mora was just another way for celestia to control teyvat. they are better off without it

    What about the function of selling off artifacts? Technically when you sell artifacts you get back mora in return. Just wanted go bring that out since its something I do especially with low rated artifacts or artifacts with poor stats.

    Actually, Zhongli doesn't need his gnosis to make Mora. He made houses out of Mora during the Archon War for his people. (Genshin Wiki for the Archon War states, "Morax teaches his people how to create houses, using Mora to create a model home. He also establishes minted Mora as Liyue's currency, for convenience." On the timeline, this was 3700 years ago, before he got his gnosis.) The only reason he was disappointed at not making a savings account is because when he traded his gnosis away, he was planning to completely be mortal (or as mortal as an Adeptus can be) and not use any special powers or anything.
    Basically, what I'm saying is that he doesn't need the gnosis for his powers. This theory is supported by the new 2.1 archon quest, where Yae says that Ei gave Yae her gnosis because she no longer needed it, with the line, "She no longer needs the power of the Gnosis, and in any case, she tells me she has severed ties with Celestia. Thus, the Gnosis became not only useless, but also a potential source of conflict." This is where everything most people have believed has become void. The gnosis doesn't deter nor add to their power; it's just a means to show their connection to Celestia. Like how a king has a crown, to show his power and social status.
    Moral of the story; Zhongli, you stupid blockhead, start making money again

    It honestly would make a lot of sense for Zhongli to want to halt human progression. Technological advancement and the rejection of gods seems to go against the heavenly principles, which is what eventually led to the demise of Khaenri'ah, so by stopping the production of mora and in turn preventing humanity from advancing, he might actually be saving a lot of people until something else can be done. Just a thought though.

    If the god of Geo made mora, and a limit to this did come about what if another god used Morax's methods and made the same thing with there Genosis, ya its not gonna be the same but if its under the same power the geo archon has borrowed what's the difference. My theory is what morax did was not infuse earth to make a coin but rather infuse power to make a coin, mora is not just a commodity like Mat pat stated. Mora is a power source, to use the alchemy table they need a power source, level and fuse weapons its also important for a power source for without power there is no change to an object, when you add iron to a katana you get a heavier katana with no real change, its why the sharpest and thinnest blades are always the strongest for they are in there perfect form but if you take mora and add it then it becomes something else, like putting electricity to a sword its now not a normal weapon but a powered weapon. Mora is in all sense a power coin, but that power comes from the heavens for morax can't use this feature of making it for he needs the power of the heavens, morax's method of making mora is to infuse earth with the power of heaven, each coin holds a kinda divine power that acts as a powering agent to the world like how we use oil and coil for generators the people of teyvat use mora. Back to my theory if all it takes is the use of a divine power couldn't the other gods make a different but all together the same as mora? This is just my mindset speaking say the lesser plant god used his genosis to create a plant based mora, but instead of a coin it be a dollar like are real life money since she is the plant god, it wouldnt be normal money tho since it will be infused with power just like mora. That way mat pats theory is valid but just cause Morax has stopped making mora doesn't mean another god couldn't do the same and take Morax's place. But hey that's just a theory A GAME THEORY!!. sorry for the poor grammar

    The thing is that the geo gnosis still exists which probably mean if you have it in your possession you might be able to produce mora.
    The problem is that the fatui has the gnosis which are antagonists.
    So I think that there will still be mora but the economy will be controlled by the fatui.
