Okay, hello everyone!
I've finally recovered the title call from Misha's hands,
so from now on, I'm back to the leadership of this corner just as you all wished for so eagerly.
There are lots of things you wouldn't know without me, right? But that's to be expected.
Well then, let's begin answering questions at once! Kyuu kyuu!
But that doesn't mean I planned to give up the title call to her.
We're just alternating on each issue... more or less. Everyone, please don't be mistaken. But information does get warped quickly, huh...?
Well then, I think I'll give the introduction for those that come here for the first time, like always. In this corner, we answer thoroughly and earnestly all technical questions you might have about the world setting of Ar tonelico.
If there are any questions that get you all "I really wanna know! Please answer them seriously!", then please send them to this corner.
When you do, make sure to put the sentence "For the Technical Service Center" in any place of your message when you send it.
Be careful about it, as if you don't write that, we might end up overlooking your question.
Hi, Lady Shurelia. Thank you for all your hard work!
I understood the structural composition of the Reyvvateils from reading the setting materials collection, but what would be the structural composition for wave science life forms like Ayatane, ELMA and ELMA-DS?
Since they aren't created by proteins, would they be like a Pureblooded β-type Reyvateil except for lacking a Triangular Nuclear Loop?
Lady Shurelia, please give us more details on this!
Hehe, I knew it. Looks like this corner is nonviable if I'm not here, huh?
The structural composition for Ayatane, little ELMA and such other creatures is exactly the same the Song Magic characters have. They are created by exposing Static D-Waves to the Tower, which gives them the energy to assume these particular shapes. Of course, human bodies are also composed of Static D-Waves.
It's just that in the case of humans, their own bodies manage their D-Wave composition and thus can continue existing on their own, while Ayatane and little ELMA can't continue existing without the Tower's power.
To put it in a simple way, they are pretty much like tangible programs.
If we try getting deeper into this topic, it'll be too deep and long for the corner, so we'll leave it at this point for today.
The rain and such other things for the Wings of Horus is controlled by the Musical Corridor, but where does the water for the rain come from? It looks like the seas were destroyed long ago, and I don't think it's possible to use rivers or lakes for this purpose...
It's very similar to the setting described above, but the Musical Corridor also has systems that allow the creation of Static D-Waves over a specific field.
As rain and similar climatological phenomena is produced by the water vapor and such other elements found in the atmosphere, that's precisely what we create using the Musical Corridor.
Of course we could produce the rainwater itself through Song Magic, but since that rain wouldn't have the same composition as natural water, it would be useless to make plants grow or for drinking. However, since it can be created as a power center for producing rain, the clouds produced from it would create actual rain water, so in the end real rain is what falls from them.
Did you understand?
W-wait... are you okay, Lady Shurelia?
You were answering so seriously... what happened?
Please don't say that! It makes me sound like I'm not serious!
Ma num ra 0x vvi.
1x AAs ixi.
といった、想音の保証定義文の読み方を知りたいです。 あと、どうしてこのような記述法になるのかも知りたいです。 ０と１が入ってるから二進法に関係があるんでしょうか…？
Ma num ra 0x vvi.
1x AAs ixi.
I'd really like to know how the components of the Emotion Keeper Syntax are pronounced. And I'd also like to know how these descriptors work. Are they related to the binary number system because they have that 0 and 1...?
The upper line is read "ma namu ra ogu vivi", and the lower one is read "igu aasu ikushi".
The upper line translates to "Begin from here". It basically has the meaning of defining that the three emotion descriptor words "Ma num ra" will be kept from the point on. The words that "define" this mechanism are the "0x vvi" ones. We could also give them the simple translation "Start here". On the other hand, the "1x AAs ixi" at the end means "the emotions stop here".
And naturally, the 0 and the 1 do have binary definitions here: strictly speaking, the 0 means opening while the 1 means closure.
That's what they mean in general terms. Did you understand?
I hardly had any lines this time. Well, time is in my hands, so I'll see you around.
Hmmhmm... but anyway, we didn't get many questions today. Could this also be an effect of what Aurica did last issue?
A-ah, right! I just noticed something!
A lot of people aren't writing "Addressed to Lady Shurelia's Technical Service Center" in their submissions!
If you don't write that, this corner won't recognize your submissions and they will fall through, so please be careful!
We never had a rule saying the submissions had to say the "Lady Shurelia's" part, did we...?
We actually had more submissions than usual this issue... but for some reason, we really didn't get many for either Hama's Submission Dojo or the Technical Service Center. Maybe it's because we're running out of material or... it was because of Aurica's influence!? Well, I actually did think that (*laughs*). It'd be great if we could get many more submissions than usual on these corners too, but submissions for this issue are closed off already. See you next time!
