This is my first submission. I'll be asking about something I saw here recently.
There was a scene in which Lady Cloche sang METHOD_METAFALICA/. at the Speech Square in Ar tonelico 2's second half, but was any energy transmitted to Luca at that moment?
It's been several years since I cleared the game, so I'm sorry if nothing like that happened in the game.
It's true that METHOD_METAFALICA/. is a patch for EXEC_METAFALICA/. that is supposed to transmit energy to the EXEC singer, but that only happens when the singers of both parts sing them together.
Since METHOD_METAFALICA/. was sung by itself then, the only effects it would have would be opening the Boundary Gates of all the IPDs, allowing to see into each other's minds.
You know how energy can't be transmitted regardless of the amount put into them if the power lines aren't connected, correct? It is the same case for Metafalica: the power lines are only connected when both parts are being sung together.
アルトネリコ3 世界終焉の引鐵は少女の詩が彈くSide ティリア After Storyをようやく聞きました。
I finally could listen to the Ar tonelico 3: The Song of the Girl that Triggers the World's Demise Side Tyria After Story.
Its contents take place a X number of years after Ar tonelico 3's endings, but what kind of events took place during these years?
Especially the efforts the older sisters did for their little sister!
And after the Tower disappeared, what happened to VISTA and XP?
Tadaa! All of that is explained in the two volumes of the super popular Ar tonelico 3 light novel that we've got so many preorders for. And it's still yet to be released.
Sis Shurelia and Sis Frelia both put all their efforts doing all sorts of amazing things for me.
It's fully loaded with heaps of scenes like "Huh!? Sis Shurelia went to the point of doing something like that!? No way!! How arousing! (*sigh*)". So please make sure to buy and read it, okay?
There was something that greatly interested me among the things Ar Ru said in the previous issue.
>And since the life forms from that other planet are actually like "cousins" to us too, we would accept their existence as well.
Does that mean that there are life forms that aren't originally from Ar Ciel living in it?
If I had to say "yes" or "no", the answer would be yes.
It's even said in the legends that have passed down from very ancient times among us Teru, that we weren't originally people from Ar Ciel.
It's also said that a long time ago... in the so-called era of legends, the Teru acknowledged the Gods.. the Wills of the Planet, as friends, unlike the humans from this planet.
However, everyone came to consider these stories as legends that have zero credibility to them.
It was said previously in the Technical Data Compilation room that "there might even be worlds where R-Waves are the waves of matter", but then could there be too a world that uses H-Waves as the waves of matter?
And if any of its life forms ever came to Ar Ciel, would the humans recognize these beings as Songs?
Yes, there is a high probability of such a world existing. But the world is very wide. We have never met a world that used H-Waves as its matter waves.
It's said that the number of wave types that exist in the Universe of EXA_PICO is infinite, and they all fill this space.
Among us, we can only recognize the 24 wave types that Ar Ciel has, so we can't recognize any others. As a result of "being unable to recognize these waves", they seem to be forming an "empty space" we recognize as the void of outer space. Therefore, if a person who could recognize all wave types overlooked this world, they would see that this wide outer space is actually packed with all sorts of matter.
So while there is a very little probability of something like that existing among the world, it's true that a world that uses H-Waves for its matter waves exists. The people of that world stand and live on an order constructed by our "feelings" and "memories". And since they directly touch our minds, they cause all sorts of mysterious effects on them. That would be one of the causes for our minds being in a constant state of flow.
On the other hand, if they ever came to our world, they perhaps would take the form of "masses of ideas that change according to ambiguous systems and laws". And since probably their bodies would be made from our "flow of feelings", they would cause common sense to crumble due to being able to ignore physical laws and experiment all sorts of changes.
On the other hand, if they were in a state in which they can force distortions into space and the waves, they would be just part of the current flow of life. In other words, we could say that we receive their influence due to being creatures that can make D-Waves oscillate, and our bodies and lands are structured along their influence, which is why everything continues changing in a chaotic manner.
...Of course, this all is just a theory shared among Ar Ciel's Wills of the Planet, so it's possible it's mistaken. Therefore I think it's best that you listen and make your own conclusions about it.
I think I saw this on the previous Toukousphere, but isn't it possible to drive Divers away through Dive Therapy (by triggering a Critical Down)?
I'm thinking that it'd be more a problem of contracts more than ability or methods used in the business though. All the protagonists have gotten repelled more than once, but it was explained it's pretty dangerous.
It's not impossible, but causing a Critical Down during a Therapy session's the worst you could do to a customer. For example, it'd be just like a restaurant waitress spilling water on a customer and knocking the daylights out from them with a tray... no, it's far more rude than that.
Customers trust and hand their minds to us because we Dive Therapists give many guarantees for them during our sessions, among them being zero risks of a Critical Down happening. And if one actually happened, it'd be because the Therapist deliberately caused the Critical Down, so depending on the situation, I don't think the customer would get swallowed by the Therapist.
But Critical Downs caused by a Proxy Dive, like what happened to Nana, are a different case. When a Proxy Dive is carried out, the customer has to understand first of the risks associated with one, because they have to consent to doing so even though Critical Down are inevitable during them. Of course I struck the bull's-eye on them as shown in my track record as a Therapist, but it has nothing to do with the confidence on my abilities for normal Therapy.
And finally, the light novel's release month has come. As a product in which we've depicted the world after Ar tonelico 3's events, we've tried to capture the future for Tyria and her Tower from all sorts of angles. Several characters from the First to Third Towers will be taking par in it, so it's a very complete work that can also be called a compilation of the three Ar tonelico games.
Its volume and scale surpasses by far that of the previous light novels, so if you're interested, please make sure to give it a read.
