Hello, Tsuchiya here.
I talked about this a little in the last Toukousphere, but soon it will be
time for the release of "Hymmnos Musical ~ Cocona - Two Feelings, Two Songs"!
The other day (the day of the Toukousphere from last week) we performed our
final checks and listened to the final version, and I have to say that I'm
personally quite satisfied with how this Hymmnos Musical turned out. Actually,
I teared up listening to it a few times in final checks.
This musical takes place in the period between Ar tonelico 2 and 3, so Croix,
Luca, and Cloche from 2 and Akane and others from 3 show up in it. It's from
Cocona's perspective, so we tried to really flesh out events and people from
This time we paid close attention to the fusion of songs and the story, so
the songs are tied more closely into the plot, especially things like tying
the songs and spoken lines together, connecting the various songs, timing, and
the balance between the various sound effects; we haven't held back on our
criticisms of various elements during production, and have worked hard to make
sure that the fans who buy it will really enjoy it. Like in the games, the
singers each composed their songs based on "feelings of the song" they were
given, and we very carefully planned out the composition taking the timing of
both the music and the drama portions into account (I'd love to release the
feelings of the songs again if we get the opportunity). As a result, the music
itself, the feelings wrapped up in the music, and its affinity with the story
are all something I can personally recommend quite highly.
Unfortunately, since we had to take the unprecedented step of doing a complete
retake of the original version of the musical (a rough mix of the lines and
music), we've had to slip the release date back two weeks. We didn't think
that the project in the state it was in at that time would satisfy your
expectations, so we wanted to go back and mix each track individually in
accordance with our original aims.
I'm terribly sorry to cause so much trouble for you all who've been waiting,
and to our partners at TEAM Entertainment, but in the end our great concern
for the quality of the work led us to selfishly slip the release date. This
Hymmnos Musical is packed full of that sort of feeling. I truly believe it's
become a worthy drama that can make you cry after hearing it over and over (or
maybe it's just because I'm so moved by the story in AT2 ... *sweatdrop* )
If you're a fan of 2 or 3, I really hope you'll pick it up!
Now, we got so many posts this time that unfortunately I was only able to run
about 2/3 of them. As always, I've done my best to fully answer all of the
questions we've accepted. I'll be waiting for your questions from next time,
so I look forward to hearing from you then!
"Singing Hill ~Ar=Ciel Ar=Dor~" has finally come to my house, so here.
I have a question about the "Record of the Eternal Earth and Heavens",
In the other legends Mao was a supporting character who saved Rhaplanca, but in
this legend he was completely different. What does this mean?
Or is it that Mao's personality changes in each of the different legends?
The Rhaplanca legends essentially serve as Meta Falss textbooks to expound on
various moral precepts, so while the legends in the rest of the world tend to
be dramatizations of events that actually took place, most of the legends in
Meta Falss are works of fiction.
The Rhaplanca legends are also fictional stories; Rhaplanca typically symbolizes
a holy maiden or deified will, while Mao is a symbol of humanity, or foolish
beings. They don't really refer to individual characters, but are rather
models of those archetypes. Basically, the timelines of each of the different
legends aren't related at all, so they're different characters.
There was a section in Technical Data Room issue 4 about the compatibility of
Hymn Crystals between servers, but there are restrictions on the spells that
you download from the crystals, right?
When Sasha downloads the Hymn Crystal into Cocona in Ar tonelico 3 she uses
the New Testament of Pastalie, but could she have used another dialect? Do
you have to use the dialect the downloader knows for it to work?
Hymn Crystals aren't compatible across dialects of Hymmnos. The Third
Generations from the First and Third, and from the Second Towers are compatible
with each other. You can think of it like being the difference between a
Windows program and a Mac program. However, since IPDs can completely emulate
all the facilities of general Hymmnos, they can use both normal Hymmnos and
the New Testament of Pastalie. However, if they tried to craft a song
completely in regular Hymmnos, it wouldn't be as efficient as if a normal
Third Generation did it, and its power at activation would decrease. It's just
like how running Windows programs in a Windows emulator on a Mac is limited by
the specs of the machine you're running it on.
The two types of Hymmnos Spells are completely incompatible between Pastalie
and normal Hymmnos. That's because the spell type is predetermined and the
words of the spell contain server commands.
1. I thought of this while I was reading the feelings of the song for Chronicle
Key recorded in the Settei Book, but when Lune was crafting Chronicle Key,
was she sympathetic with or sorry for Mir, or something like that?
2. In the story "The Red Shoe" that was in the Singing Hill ~Ar=Ciel Ar=Dor~
booklet, Soma assassinated a man who was mistreating children; Soma is
supposed to be the deity of calamity and misfortune, but even in the game
I thought her actions were closer to Filament's role of a god of death, so
what's going on here?
3. How does blue magic's healing effect work? I can think of a lot of things
like increasing or activating cells' self-healing capacities or providing a
kind of surgical role, but how does it work?
1. Lune felt quite a bit of compassion towards Mir. I think in the end Misha
was able to sympathize with her as well.
2. In the end, it's a legend, so you shouldn't take it as a 100% factual
representation of something Soma did. Soma's original role was basically
environmental preservation through population thinning, but various regions
essentially misunderstood that and cast her as a goddess of death, or as a
force of justice. This is similar to how some figures in contemporary Earth
legends are treated as gods in some region and as demons in others.
3. It's basically as you describe it. However, various healing spells use
different mechanisms. Most of them, though, basically support the body's
natural recovery mechanisms as you describe.
I really love the detailed information this section has.
I have a question about Mind Guardians. Excluding IPDs, is it possible for a
Reyvateil to lose their Mind Guardian?
Hama disappeared from Misha's Cosmosphere temporarily due to events there.
However, she was later revived as the same Hama. I don't want to think about
it too much, but say the model for a a Reyvateil's Mind Guardian was a close
friend, and something happens so that they break off relations and she doesn't
want to ever think about that person again. Based on what Hama says in the
game, I'd think that the Mind Guardian version of that friend would disappear.
If that happened, would that Reyvateil become a Reyvateil without a Mind
Guardian, like Misha ... ?
It was explained a little bit in the game, but I'd love to hear more details. (miyu)
Mind Guardians can disappear, but only when they subconsciously want this to
happen themselves. Mind Guardians are representations of a scan the dive
machines make of a special frequency region, but if that scan essentially
came up empty, there wouldn't be a Mind Guardian. This depends mostly on
her emotional condition, but there wouldn't be such thing as a Reyvateil that
never had a Mind Guardian for her entire life.
Incidentally, even if she broke up with a friend like that, I don't think her
Mind Guardian would disappear. That's because someone that's truly that
important can't be erased at a subconscious level so easily. I think the
friend in that case might become an object of hatred, but this just means that
"love" has turned into "hatred", and the degree of importance to the Reyvateil
hasn't really changed. Even if their behavior as a Mind Guardian changed
considerably, they probably wouldn't disappear right away. Similarly, they
wouldn't disappear if the friend died, either. However, the Mind Guardian
might "go into hiding" for a while due to the shock of the loss. That isn't
to say that the friend's influence on the Mind Guardian's role was so great
that the Mind Guardian has ceased to exist.
Even if they were to eventually disappear or somehow transform, this would be
a very gradual process in the subconscious.
I think the Holy Maiden would never stop talking if I submitted this in the
Toukousphere, so here's a question for the Technical Data Center.
The name of the company that produces Geugo is never revealed in the game, but
has it been established (like in notes in planning documents)?
Also, what are the Funbum's leg hair and the front teeth of Funban made
of ... ? (It says they're not edible, so.)
I don't mind if you just say, "It's a mystery". Sometimes mysteries are better
off left as mysteries, after all.
There's a place called the Gergo factory. It's not really as mechanized as
the name might make it sound, but it's a building where tens of people use
sewing machines to make Gergos. It's located
deep inside a lower-class residential area at the bottom of the lifts in the
The workers would go into the Tower to work everyday and go back outside to
There are lots of other famous brands of candy and various goods in Meta Falss
(like Chuloki), so there are other factories like this.
I wonder what the Funbum and the Funban' teeth are made out of ... ?
The Funbum's leg hairs are probably made out of something like fish skin
1. According to Tyria's Binary Field, Reyvateils were treated as a different
species 700 years ago, so did Masakado employ all the Reyvateils seen in his
house, or were they provided to him by the laboratory?
2. It's been established that Reyvateils of the Third Tower can have the
physical sectors of their SH server data overwritten, so is it possible for
Reyvateils, or maybe even humans with the Reyvateil nature, to undergo some
sort of regenerative therapy that way?
1. They're Reyvateils he employs. He was a very kind and generous young man.
Or, perhaps it would be more accurate to say that he was sick of dealing with
humans due to battle fatigue but cared very deeply about Reyvateils. You
might think of it like people who are sick of other people but take very
good care of their plants.
2. It's possible for Reyvateils with the proper technology, knowledge, and
materials. It wouldn't be possible without enough biofluid to make up for
whatever part was lost (since the basic problem is that they don't have enough
anymore). This would only work for pure-blooded Betas, though.
It would be very difficult for humans with the Reyvateil nature. The same
is true for Third Generations. This is because their bodies are basically
human, and it would require a very high degree of technology to fuse a human
body and a Reyvateil body. It would be much more difficult than organ
I have some questions about Binasphere choruses in Pastalie.
1. Binasphere chorus components are all written in upper-case, so how would
you distinguish the upper-case portion of emotion verbs? Or would you need to?
2. I seem to recall you say "exec hymme 2x1/0>>" to activate the Binasphere;
would it be the same in Pastalie? (Or would you have to, say, replace exec with
3. I know this is probably unrealistic, but would it be possible to sing a
Binasphere chorus where one part is in Pastalie and the other is in normal
1. Binasphere choruses are always formatted in uppercase. Only the "x"s are written in lowercase.
2. Binasphere choruses don't have any effect on Pastalie.
3. You can't use Pastalie for the reason given in 2.
I asked a question before, too, so this time I have two questions.
1. In AT2, there were a lot of Hymmne Crystals in the Gyrostabilizer; would any
of them have resulted in the same EXEC_DESPEDIA/. if Jakuri had downloaded
2. In Infelious Rhaplanca from Singing Hill ~Ar=Ciel Ar=Dor~, there's one part
that has the melody from METHOD_IMPLANTA/.; can we think of that as being
because Cloche borrowed the melody from Infelious Rhaplanca when she sung
1. They would basically turn out the same. However, there would be a number
of differences. For example, part of the song might change, but this would be
due to the song affecting a different target, so the song would basically be
2. Just as you say. However, that's not because she simply memorized the
melody that came out of the crystal, but because it synchronized with Cloche
at a much deeper level and reconstructed it there.
Thanks for answering my questions last time. I've got one again this time.
After the ending of Ar tonelico 3, they're working to increase the effective
range of the Reyvateils, but would there be interference from the different
Towers' transmissions? Or maybe it wouldn't be a problem since they use
different frequencies or something?
Various cell phone base stations have overlapping ranges (for example, some
different standards like CDMA and 3G share frequencies on purpose), but there
isn't any interference; it's like that. Basically, the areas of Symphonic
Power influence connected (expanded) by the "inter-Tower network" all use
interconnected signals, so it's not like each Tower would emit different
frequencies; they're all synchronized. Incidentally, Infel Phira is not part
of this inter-Tower network. It's a group that's only made up of Reyvateils
that were "constructed in the first age", Betas and Third Generations. IPDs
are exceptions in a number of ways, so ensuring compatibility and roaming for
them would be quite difficult.
Hello. Thanks for all your hard work each time.
1. Are the wills of the planet made up of waveforms other than H-waves and
2. The songs that appear in the game and on the CD that are crafted by the wills
of the planet (Ec Tisia and other songs that use Ar Ciela) are just the portions
of the songs in the sub-20000Hz range that's audible by humans. But, why do
they still have melodies and backup bands(?) like normal human music?
3. I thought of this again reading the booklet that came with the "Singing Hill"
CD; hypothetically speaking, is the name "Horus" that's given to the original
will the same as the true names "Juklizda" or "Clyuue"? (I get the idea there's
something wrong with the way I'm asking that, but ... )
Or is Horus, and all the other names given to the wills in the game and booklet
(the stuff in katakana and Ciela in the booklet)
just something made up by humans, and not their real names?
1. The wills of the planet are made out of 26 wave types in all. The known
wave types include D, H, U, R, N, Tz, Vx, K, and S, but not all 26 have been
discovered by humans.
2. The melodies are being played back normally. Naturally, you can't hear
the parts above 20000 Hz (which would just be harmonics for normal musical
instruments), but anything that's 20kHz or below is audible just like any
It might be easier to think of it in reverse, so to speak.
Humans can only distinguish the part of the gods' speech that's 20kHz or
below, so they think that's all there is to the world, and everything
they can understand they divide into singing or music.
Everything that's not words or music is just "sound", or maybe "noise",
but really, what's the difference between any of those?
Only what your brain is wired to be able to recognize; no more and no less.
So, now would you understand if I said that humans simply interpret
everything in the lowest 20000 Hz of the gods' speaking (singing) register
as either music or singing?
Sorry if that wasn't a good explanation.
3. The true names of the gods are expressed in their own language. In
fact, the heraldic emblems used as backgrounds in the "Tales of the Gods"
sections of the Singing Hill extra booklet have the true names of the
gods written in Ar Ciela Compartment underneath them.
Thanks for all your hard work.
1. I think Jakuri gets favorable treatment, and it's quite rude towards
Shurelia-sama. It feels like all the questions about Shurelia-sama or the
First Tower get answered with something like "All of the technology has been
lost to time so there's nothing you can do about it. Please just accept
that.", and it's very hard on those of us who'd like to see some of her
problems get cleared up somehow.
2. In a previous Toukousphere Misha got really upset with Shurelia-sama over
her role as the Star Singer, but why didn't she get upset with Mir, who spent
all her time sealed away in the Tower having fun? I don't understand why she
seemed relieved when she heard she wasn't just spending the whole time playing,
either. Is it because she sees Mir as someone who's had a hard upbringing like
her, and she sees Shurelia as a horrible person who made her do something
she'd rather die than do?
3. I don't really understand why Moocheriel in the Third Tower was created.
Weren't they drawing power out of the planet in order to revive the planet?
Kind of seems like they had it backwards.
1. I'm terribly sorry. That situation was the beginning upon which the rest
of the environment was constructed, so I'm afraid I'm just telling it like it
is. Shurelia was the prototype Reyvateil, and a number of her abilities were
basically given to her and left to develop on their own (for example, she's
the only one with the ability to directly manipulate Ar tonelico), so indeed
there are a number of inconvenient or experimental (imperfect) aspects to her
compared to the later models of Reyvateils that contained numerous improvements.
So, if I answer questions honestly and truthfully (which is the fundamental
aspect of this corner) without covering for anyone, it's not because I'm playing
favorites for or against any of the characters, but because I'm explaining how
this world is constructed from a systematic and big-picture level (for example
in this issue there are a number of items regarding the history, innovations,
and changing moral and use issues of Reyvateils from their conception to the
present day). I can understand how people might think I'm casting various
heroines in a good or bad light because of this (since there are fundamental
aspects of the setting that influence them in that way), so while I do my best
to smooth over some things (like how in Ar tonelico 2 Luca and Cloche needed to
have similar levels of powers as characters, so we spent a year working out
the details to make that happen)
I have no intention of compromising on fundamental
aspects of the world's setting. This is something I personally can't give up
any ground on.
Still, I think she also has a lot of things about her that you wouldn't really
find "inconvenient", so if you can give us some examples of things that make you
feel sorry for Shurelia, or think they're inconvenient or give her a hard time,
I'd like to say a few things about them, so I hope you'll let us hear your
opinions on this (I haven't heard much about that sort of thing, in any case,
so I'd genuinely like to know how you feel).
2. I think she harbors a lot of different feelings towards Mir, but specifically
regarding the incident in the Toukousphere, it happened because of her
relationship with Shurelia, so that's really all that answer covered.
3. Moocheriel's purpose from the planning document was essentially to be a
"Heart of the Land Purifier". Assuming Tyria's Tower conversion had completed
successfully, it would create symphonic power from the dynamic H waves of
Tilia and the Third Tower's Betas and crystallize it.
The amount of symphonic power necessary to create a Heart of the Land is
extremely small compared to the amount of power used by the modified version
of Moocheriel that was actually implemented (= the amount of power necessary
to compensate for Tilia's imperfect state), so it certainly is a blunder by
the Laboratory that overlooked the work of many engineers starting with Kurogane.
Looking back at it with the benefit if hindsight, it certainly is putting
the cart before the horse. However, the Laboratory of the time had a rather
optimistic idea of how much symphonic power was left in the planet, and
even if they consumed it nearly to the point of exhaustion, as a result
Tyria's tower would be complete and they'd be able to resolve everything
by implementing the AHPP; anyway, that's the somewhat misguided view that was
behind the construction of Moocheriel.
It seems like Tyria was grown in a rush; what would the preferred growth period
for an origin be?
Also, for normal pure-blooded Betas, when does their cultivation period and
the countdown on their telomeres begin?
Is it possible to use a Heart of the Land directly as an SH server from the
The standard growth period they settled on was 1 year. In practice, this was
a very short amount of time for this sort of thing, so it might be more to the
point to say that this was all the time the calculations in their plan allowed
Frelia's was 5 years, and Shurelia's was over 10 years if you count the initial
period of fundamental research, while Tyria only took 1 years to complete.
As a result, everyone watched over her carefully, worried about whether or
not she'd come online successfully.
A Beta's telomere count starts decreasing when they leave their biocapsule,
or more specifically at the instant they gain consciousness.
You can't use a Heart of the Land as an SH server as-is. After all, it's fairly
close to a Nuclear Triangular Loop (the core of a Reyvateil), so it doesn't have
much in common with an SH server.
Thanks for answering so many questions every time.
1. The "sol" in "Sol Ciel" or "Sol Marta" means "shining",
but what does the "el" in "El Duel" or the "meta" in "Meta Falss" mean?
2. What event served as the turning point for the A.D. calendar? It's "The
Era of Divine Sound", so I'm sure it has something to do with sound, but.
Also, what are the years before A.D. called?
3. About how old(?) is Ar Ciel? (They say the Earth is about 4.6 billion
years, so ... )
1. "El" means "nation", and "meta" basically means "province". It's like the
"autonomous region" in "autonomous region of Tibet".
2. The first year A.D. was decided well after the year itself had passed,
but it's said to be "the first year that a miracle was caused through song".
There isn't really a designation for the years before A.D.
However, the billions of years that are called the time of the gods are
sometimes known by names like "The Age of Origins", "The Age of the Full
Moon", or "The Age of Heaven and Earth".
3. Strictly speaking, there's no exact answer, but it's probably billions of years old.
So, viruses and digital lifeforms are almost the same thing, but what's the
difference between "AI" and "viruses/digital lifeforms" in the Ar tonelico
world? They're both man-made (well, Shun's different), but you drew a clear
distinction with e.g. XP when you said "she only has the facilities programmed
into her, so she has no will". On the other hand, Shun and Ayatane do seem
to have wills. I get the feeling I'm forgetting something basic, but please
let me know.
AIs and digital lifeforms are strictly different things. An AI is an artificial
process that functions spontaneously by interpreting something as instructions,
while a digital lifeform is an artificial life-form using an AI as a base.
In other words, a digital lifeform has something to it in addition to an AI
which serves to give them their emotions. However ... I touched on this in
a previous question about Shurelia, but even for us humans it's difficult to
say what emotions are spontaneous or natural and what emotions are constructed
(there are even a lot of movies about it, and it's a very intensely
discussed topic). Now, what we call a will might otherwise be called a soul,
and in terms of the world of Ar Ciel it's basically a streaming mux and demux
of H-waves, and some digital lifeforms might have one, while others might not.
For example, Shun has a will, but Ayatane does not. Ayatane is a digital
lifeform with an AI level that's close to that of Harvestasha Vista or XP, while
Shun is a digital lifeform that's closer to a human.
Friendly sibling fights between Croix and Cocona? "Of course they've had a lot.
If people are interested, we might even release something based on one of them."
I'd love to see something like that!!
Maybe it's kind of late to ask this sort of question, but do the Origins need
food or sleep? Or would they be okay with any, and it's something they do
for pleasure rather than out of need?
There's one really famous episode public already, the time when Croix used
Cocona's precious Baldgo toothbrush, and she wouldn't talk to him for a
while. There's also the time when Cocona caught a cold and said she'd go
out and buy a special-edition Gergo, but ended up going out and buying a Geugo,
or in more serious matters, the time when she wanted to join up with the
knights as a support member, but Croix was against it, and Cocona got so upset
she ran out of the house crying. In more mundane matters, there's the time
Cocona ate the soup Croix had made for his dinner, which made him cry, or how
the first time Croix brought Cocona along to Cynthia's it caused such a fuss
that he decided he'd just go by himself from then on, which made Cocona even
more suspicious, or the time his knight training was raining late so he couldn't
make it home by the time he'd promised, and Cocona spent the night crying and
waiting alongside a bowl of cold rice. We've got a lot of ideas for this sort
Now, the Origins can continue functioning without food or sleep. Still,
delicious food is delicious, and sleeping makes you feel happy and refreshed,
so they'll eat and sleep as long as it's not a time of extreme emergency. I
suppose it's just like how people who like playing games can still survive their
daily life without them.
I'd like to ask some questions about the Wills of the Planet.
1. Who gave the Wills their names?
Did they choose them themselves after they were born, are they the names that
humans gave them in legends after they came down to the human world, or was
it perhaps that humans came up with the characters in legends first, and the
Wills picked the names from legends that suited them the best?
2. The reason Saki came to the human world
Saki and the others wills inhabited the γ-Sublimate, but is that because
the humans were trying to call out to Saki, or because Saki happened to be the
one to find her?
3. When did she get the name Sakia Lumei?
This is related to the last question, but did they give her the name Sakia in
order to call on Saki (Sakiya Rumei), or did they name her later because Saki
had come along?
1. The Wills decide their own names. Their true names are recorded in Ar Ciela
Compartment (it's published as the background design of the story about the gods
in the Singing Hill CD special edition booklet). The gods went by the names
that humans heard them call themselves when they came down to earth, but since
naturally they could only hear the bits below 200000 Hz, they didn't hear them
very well and mixed them up, which is how their current names came to be.
2. It was decided by the Concensus of Ar Ciel. Saki basically volunteered, but
after some conference, the concensus will of Ar Ciel basically decided she
should be sent to the surface. The former is basically what happened from
an H-wave point of view, and the latter is from a U-wave point of view, but
it's all the same thing.
3. The name Sakia Lumei was given to her by the laboratory technicians based on
the human god Sakiya Rumei to symbolize her role as the god of a new age who
would create a new type of human (= Reyvaroid). From that point of view, it
seems like it's just by chance that they're so alike, but their compatibility
was enhanced via U-wave interactions, so really nothing else could possibly
Long time no write.
The CD's out and a lot of things have settled down, so I'll ask some questions
Yurishica is primarily the "god of fire" and Souteintei is the "god of the
skies" in legends, but are there any particular individual gods of the seas
or water in the legends?
If so, what are their names?
Please let me know if you can.
Of course there are. But, we haven't really decided on names for them.
There might be, but not really any that have appeared in any public episodes
that we could point to. I guess maybe Noelle is kind of interested in
Lyner ... ? Maybe that's about it. (Just in that she has a good impression
of his character.)
Aoto has never really had any ladies in his life, so practically speaking there
couldn't be any.
I just thought of this, but the same singer will have some songs in rock style
and some songs in ethnic styles; does this very from Reyvateil to Reyvateil?
Also, depending on the answer to the last question, if a Reyvateil really got into
some genre over time, would songs they'd crafted before change if they sang them
(Nyo? of Hachijou Island)
It's mostly according to their tastes and cultural background. Their tendencies
are especially obvious in the lyrics. Also, their songs can change to match
the different genres they might come to like over a long lifetime. But, it
wouldn't change suddenly, but instead gradually over time. For example, the composition of a song might
be different if you sang it for the first time in 30 years (in the case of a
Now, if by "a song they crafted" you meant a Hymmnos Word, that can change
drastically depending on the singer's mood at the moment.
収録ではお世話になりました～ すごくいい曲になりましたね！ Was waa ra chanti！
You took really good care of us at the recording~ That song turned out really
great, didn't it!? Was waa ra chanti!
Well, anyway, I have some questions.
1. Last time you said Shurelia-sama was only able to use less than 10% of the
First Tower's facilities, but why is that? Or does it mean that because it was
damaged during times of war, the Tower itself can't be fully activated??
2. I haven't read too closely through all the settings materials, so sorry if
I"m thinking about this the wrong way, but if you thought of the Towers as
computers from our world, what generation would they be, and how many FLOPs
would they be capable of? What kind of scale would it be on?
3. If Shurelia-sama seriously tried to use more of the Towers' facilities,
what could she do and how much capability could she regain??
Sorry, if some of these questions are dumb, please ignore them ...
1. Her synchronization ability was limited to 10% at the time of the Grathnode
Inferia. The physical wiring was still being laid at the time and was never
2. It's terribly difficult to convert between them, but think of it as a CPU
whose circuitry is about as complex as a human brain. I think there would be
quantum effects, so it would be something more powerful than a quantum computer.
It's impossible to calculate FLOPs for something like that (so much work is done
in parallel, and the CPU itself is organically interconnected).
3. I think there may have been a question like this before, but as far as the
Tower itself goes, she'd be able to influence administer and oversee power
flow regulation and security systems, perform service administration (of things
like the Plasma Bell and the Musical Corridor), and program circuits through the
symphonic power lines (this is what enabled the creation of Grathmelding).
She can freely traverse the Binary Field, but for security reasons she's unable
to access β-6D (in other words, the Soulspaces of the βs and Third Generations).
Sorry if that doesn't really answer your question. I might be able to give
you a better answer if you can explain what sorts of other things you think
she'd be able to user, or what you mean by regaining capability.
