I suppose it could, as that world is the power behind the Digital World and World of Darkness though if you had to choose from one of those three places it might even be the latter.Would it not make more sense if Apocalymon originated from the World of Dreams since that is a place were pure emotions and thoughts can manifest into actual material beings?
Yeah, I'm essentially treating the novel as supplemental to the anime i.e any information that doesn't directly conflict with what was established in the show is valid to me. Thus the interpretations would differ based on what you accept as canon.Pretty sure that was never canon for the anime (only the novel claims this and that's another version entirely).
Throughout the franchise, part of the point of the Dark Area (Which is what Apocalymon's void and the firewall basically represents, MetalEtemon even calls it "hell") is that it makes sure that the data of evil Digimon is not reborn. That is why Devimon's data was still in the abyss in 02 ready to be used by the Kaiser for example.
This makes for a much more convincing motivation as well; In the original anime concept of Apocalymon the very fact that that the village of beginnings has basically rejected their data that could be seen as the source of anger for the Digimon that make up Apocalymon.
In the novel's version of the concepts the regrets of the lives belonging to the data (a random distinction that makes very little sense in the first place) seem very much less justified if they would get reconstructed either way.
(In a weird buddhism style of thinking it could theoretically possible for souls to get tired of reincarnation itself but this is not the case as this would contradicts Apocalymon's own admissions of envy).
Anger as motivation for revenge is definitely plausible, although I'd point out that when talking about Apocalymon's origins in the show, Gennai seemed to refer to Digimon who'd died while evolving in the general sense and not just evil Digimon only.
