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 goes to the Technical Service Center Arm!
The Origins don't have Cosmospheres, but they had them from when they were born to until they were hard-wired to the Tower?
And in case that Lady Shurelia had one, how it would be? This was worried me so, so much that I can't even gulp down the Bunny Rice I love!
Please, tell me. Kyuu!
I never had a Cosmosphere since I was born.
Unfortunately, it seems the structure of what we call a Cosmosphere wasn't yet clearly defined when I was created.
After that, when the Pureblooded Beta-types were made, we became able to analyze the [Origin of the Feelings] by means of using magic, which was what allowed us to construct the program that Cosmospheres are.
I was hard-wired to the Binary Field around that same time, so because of that, I don't have a Cosmosphere.
Frelia was created under the same format as me, so of course she doesn't have a Cosmosphere either.
A question for the Technical Service Center.
I don't think this question has been asked before, but I've always wanted to ask it.
Since Lady Shurelia is the Tower Administrator, wouldn't her Soulspace be the Binary Field, which also should be called the Tower's heart? And since she also got shared the Tower's resources and eternal life like Lady Shurelia, wouldn't Mir's Soulspace be the Binary Field too? Or since she was just stealing energy from the sides, she does have a Soulspace like a regular Reyvateil?
However, it doesn't seem like it'll get answered despite how much it worries me. I'm counting on you for this, Lady Shurelia!
If I explain it using the concepts of the Internet in your world, it's very simple.
Those that have a website or blog in the Internet, please think of it as if it were your Cosmosphere.
You can edit it, and distribute it however you wish. However, even if that's also possible for the sites of your friends and other people, there are people that have sites that can't be freely accessed in other regions of the Internet.
As for Mir, while she has her own website, she could also access these other regions... which means she hacked the whole Internet.
In my case, I don't have a website of my own, but I can browse and administrate all the other pages, so it'd be simpler if you think of me as the network administrator.
Is this a good enough answer for you? Kyuu?
This is for the Technical Service Center.
Is the Grathmeld from 1 and 2 the same thing?
Since it was a system established by Lady Shurelia at the beginning of the Third Era, it shouldn't have reached Metafalss during the interaction both regions had, so I was wondering if it was something that Frelia made up on her own...
Please tell me, Lady Shurelia!!
First of anything, the system called Synthesis in 2 has nothing to do with "Grathmeld". The system itself is called Shop Synthesis, but since it doesn't involve putting Grathnode Crystals into the items, we could say it's synthesis on its purest state.
As for which way it gives effects to the items it produces, I don't know how it does that. However, it must be a completely different kind of technology from the way the Silver Horn allows everyone to use Grathmelding.
This is for the Technical Service Center.
About how many kinds of Hymn Crystal are out there?
I ask because I was a bit bothered by what kind of things there could be in other Hymn Crystals, so please tell me how many other kinds there are aside of the ones shown in the game.
Hymn Crystals are basically the same thing as PC software from your world.
Could you answer how many kinds of software there are? It's impossible, right? And that is roughly the large amount of Hymn Crystals that have existed since long ago.
Hymn Crystals comprisse from extremely important crystals that can control the Tower to consumer-oriented crystals designed to make daily life easier, so there was a great variety of them. And all of them contain songs of the type that are processed within the Tower as Hymmnos Extracts.
Long ago, life was more convenient because everyone would rather purchase a Hymmnos Extract someone else made than make the effort of Diving to craft strong Song Magic (Hymmnos Words).
I'm very happy that we've been getting so many questions lately.
I hope you'll always continue asking thee questions filled with interest about the Ar tonelico world!
And this was the first Toukousphere to get published after Ar tonelico 2's release.
I think a lot of people have been enjoying it, but how far have you gotten on it?
As for the AT2 characters joining the Toukousphere, I'll think I'll wait a bit so you all can get a clear image of them in the game.
So please look forward until that day comes!
