          I wouldnt say Crunchyroll is the biggest or most diverse. 9anime has far more titles.

                  my theory and a spoiler for chapter 121 below.

                  in chapter 121 we see a close up of the petrification beam. the petrification beam has a deployment system with complex circuitry. these seem to be controls or some kind of computer. light wouldn't need that. this is more evidence it's nanobots. the strangest part though, is that the deployment system is in the form of two rings which aren't connected mechanically. rather, they're just spun through each other and tied together. this indicates that there are two programs that are run in rapid succession. i'm going to guess that the first ring deploys the nanobots and controls them within a target area. the second ring calls back any nanobots that didn't contact a target. this would leave no evidence and would explain why people who use the petrification beam are willing to enter the effected zone immediately. as for the ai bit. we all know the why man is involved somehow, but one strange message isn't enough to assume ai. for example, it could be another message entirely being communicated in different morse code. they already had this twist occur in a recent chapter. that could be the writer putting the idea in our heads.

                    So we could be seeing a Skynet style situation but instead of killing every human on Earth it used nano-tech to turn them all to a stone like substance. Seriously these situations usually boil down to some kind of experiment gone wrong and causing an apocalyptic event.
                    Hmm, in fact this is making it sound more and more like Horizon Zero Dawn

The fact remnants of the technology are still active and being used by primitive species, goes to show that it is very likely other people like Senku popped out around the world.

                                                                                Also the center of the beam is in South America. Most specifically the area where the Telescope that got the first image of a Black Hole is. So this is definitely man made.
