How did the Prophets come to the conclusion that the Halo Rings can be used to go to a higher plane of existence?

 

A lot of their technology is based on studying forerunner artifacts, but that is a huge assumption to make. 

 

Were the Prophets just in such awe of the forerunners that is was like, wow, we can meet the forerunners, lets activate the rings.

The Prophets found Forerunner artifacts and were able to interpret Forerunner scripture at an early point in history. The Forerunners have their own version of the Great Journey that they wrote about taking place after the activation of the rings. The Prophets thought that activating the Array would send them on the Great Journey not knowing what the Forerunners' Great Journey was.

Though the Prophet of Truth eventually found out what exactly the Halo Array was meant to do he would choose to keep it secret as this news would certainly discredit their religeon and (violently) disband the Covenant as a result.

The Great Journey turned out to be nothing but a misinterpretation.

As I understand it:

 

For the Forerunners, the "Great Journey" was death (similar to Peter Pan saying that "to die would be a great adventure").

 

The Prophets' translations were extremely sub-par (as evident in them translating "Reclaimer" as "Reclemation").

Not necessarily to die, but to exile themselves from the known parts of the universe in order to atone for their sins. Dying was inclusive for some though.
