It's Lady Shurelia. I think I want to have a fun time getting technical along you all today too!
Lately, the topics the questions are about have been gradually getting more advanced, so it makes me glad to know you all are being so studious. I have to keep doing my best so I won't lose to you all!
Here is the corner where we answer thoroughly and earnestly all technical questions you might have about the world setting of Ar tonelico.
If there are any questions that make you go 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 it, we might end up overlooking your question.
This is for the Technical Service Center, and what I want to ask Lady Shurelia is if there's a new category that continues from the EXEC and EXEC_HYMME ones. What are METHOD and EXEC? And how about the EXEC_with.METHOD and EXEC_over.METHOD ones? I'd really want to have an explanation on them before Ar tonelico 2 gets released, and maybe even have some homework on them even though it's been so long.
I'm very sorry, but... I really don't know anything about the kind of Hymmnos that starts with a METHOD declaration.
At the least there's nothing about it among all my knowledge, so it means it doesn't exist either among the libraries from the super civilization from more than 700 years ago, which we call the First Era.
Surely, I'm sure you'll understand what they are when you play Ar tonelico 2.
I'm very sorry for not being able to help. I'll begin studying too, so once I do, maybe I'll be able to start a new series of Hymmnos language lectures.
This is for the Technical Service Center.
Pleased to meet you, Lady Shurelia. I always enjoy reading the Technical Service Center in every single issue. Well then, this is my question: what are the principles that allow healing magic to heal at once the wounds from multiple races at the same time like humans, Teru with mechanical implants, RTs and Song Magic (Ayatane)?
And since you previously also told us that "the composition of a rain created by Song Magic will depend on the singer", I think it would be very difficult to craft a song that directly healed wounded (or damaged) bodies.
So I thought that it worked by "providing through Song Magic the energy that would be needed to strengthen the natural healing power of the body" , but then I thought that Jack's mechanical arm doesn't have any natural healing power of its own, so it shouldn't be able to act on it. However, if Song Magic allows to heal the body fully, would it work like I just described? I'm on the right track with this?
The diference Song Magic has from the typical so-called fantasy "magic" is that it doesn't have physically concrete effects.
This means that the "healing magic" isn't a single process of "amplifying the life force in organic matter" or "greatly multiplying the cellular organization of a body".
Instead, the feelings of "wanting to heal someone" are converted inside the Tower in a process in an individual case by case basis. Then, the Tower will understand you want to heal something from these "feelings" and output them converted into Dynamic D-Waves according to the kind of healing it is needed at the moment.
Song Magic is basically an extreme amplification of the "power of feelings", so it isn't more than the "power of prayers" the Reyvateils (people) have being amplified several million, or even trillion times.
For example, let's say that when you think "I wish mom would get better from her sickness" and when you think "I wish I could repair my broken PS2" these feelings share a general idea, but have an entirely different mood to each other. It's more or less like that.
Could you understand it? I'm sorry if it was as complicated as always... kyuu...
This is for the Technical Service Center.
I undestand that Reyvateil Origins and Pureblooded β-Types are programmed to have their growth stopped when they reach a certain age. I recall... it was when they were about the equivalent to a 16 to 18 years old human.
Considering this... I find it a bit hard to say, but I'm eeling there's a great difference between Misha, Lady Shurelia and Mir's true form... Is this because they were programmed to look like this, or is it because of any other reason?
To create a Reyvateil, you must use a "Tripolar Resonance Incubator", but then you must put inside a "certain something" within the Triangular Nuclear Loop that serves as the Reyvateil's core in order to give them a specific regularity (ego).
That "certain something" is an item both Pureblooded β-Types and Origins have always installed, and it is what creates the "ego" of that specific Reyvateil. As for the name of that "certain something", it's a secret.
This goes to the Technical Service Center.
I've got a question, Lady Shurelia: what are the Cloud Sea Fishes? How they can be okay within these poison gases? ...Are they edible? ...I'm sorry, but I couldn't avoid being bothered by them. Please help me!
Cloud Sea Fishes are a kind of fish that can fly through the skies. They are also a kind of delicacy called the "Jonde Tamasbra" or something like that. I'd like to try eating it at least once.
This is my first submission, so "this is for the Technical Service Center". I've been wondering about this evert since I saw the game's ending, but can any other Hymn Crystals be made through the same method used to create Phantasmagoria? Please tell me, Lady Shurelia!
Of course, other Hymn Crystals can be made through that same method.
However, since it was made at the very end of the game, we couldn't show that method in action.
There were many questions this time, so I'm sorry I couldn't answer the many others that I had backlogged.
However, the more questions there are the more I want to answer them. I'll be always looking forward to meeting with you in the Technical Service Center from now on!
And we'll finally have the Enta Matsuri in two days. If anyone out there is going to the event that day, I hope to see you all over there!
Let's all make the meeting place for Enta Matsuri show an uproar all of us together.
I'm sure it'll be a fun festival with everyone, the singers and the staff members all together in it!
