Aside of the fact it's impossible due to there not being a replacement Origin, if Lady Shurelia could carry out the Tower Administrator guard change, would she stop living eternally and would be able to live with a normal life span?
Or would she continue sleeping eternally from when the guard change is done?
About the Tower Administrator guard change, it's something I've never seen happen, so I can't reliably say how it goes.
However, as far as I've seen from browsing through databases and programs from the past, I've learned that the instant her connections are cut off, what people call "death" would befall upon her.
And we actually have seen this process carried out except for one step of it, and that was because a certain someone sang Suspend. Aurica later on sang Re-Nation, but if at that moment the target Administrator had been configured to be any other Origin that wasn't "Shurelia", they would have actually carried out the "Guard Change" ceremony.
As for what would happen to Shurelia if another Origin was made Administrator in her place, the most likely thing is that it'd be "a situation about which nothing can be done". In other words, all her functions would stop permanently... or simply put, she'd "die".
I've got a question about the life span of the Pureblooded β-types.
They have a life span of approximately 150 years by nature, but in the case of someone like Mir, who had her body sealed away and existed only as a mind for a long time, how longer would she be able to live once the seal on her body was broken?
Mir has lived for 382 years, which is much more than the typical 150 life span, yet somehow she is living with no problems, so wouldn't the explanation be that she could live for 150 years if we don't count the time she spent sealed?
The reason is very simple. As it was written in the Ar tonelico Setting Material Collection, Mir was put in a state called HALT (all processes are stopped) during the time she was sealed.
This is a condition in which all processes... right, if we were talking about a PC, it would mean that all programs are completely stopped.
If we had to say what this means, it's that if the LEM (Life Extension Mechanism) isn't working, then not even the energy of the Triangular Nuclear Loop is processed. In short, it's as if time had completely stopped for her.
I think you should have gotten the idea by now, but during that time, it doesn't count as if she was alive. So in practical terms, the years she spent sealed aren't counted in her age.
It was said in the setting collections material book that Mir was able to receive a supposedly limitless amount of life and energy like Lady Shurelia does, but does that mean that the Pureblooded Beta-Types would have no life spans if they could share the resources of the Tower?
It seems like Pureblooded Beta-types have a life span of 150 years, but if any other Beta, like Misha did that same thing, wouldn't that completely consume her life span?
It seems Mir could use a tremendous amount of energy...
Ah, is possible that the reason Mei Mei sleeps so much due to Symphonic Power deficiency was because of Mir!? So it was you, aside of producing all those viruses, making the right Wing of Horus and the Hexagonal Plate of the Musical Corridor fall, and other things!
Don't be rude. Even if it looks like this, I worked very ecologically inside of the Tower.
It's true I needed to use a great amount of Symphonic Power when I created the viruses, but I never used so much it caused the fall of the Hexagonal Plate. Rather, I'd say that the surplus of Symphonic Power should have increased greatly because the strong consumption of energy that the Plasma Bells represented was reduced by half.
Besides, this question was answered before, but even if we could share the Tower's resources, that alone wouldn't be enough to increase the life span of the Betas. Well, they would need to rewrite their Soulspaces and several other things, so to be able to get that near-limitless amount of life and energy they would have to do things that no ordinary people can.
Anyhow, since I have a faster processing speed than Shurelia, she has no security because the security processes can only protect against Soulspace rewriting. But normal Reyvateils don't have that speed, so it's a sure thing that the protection would catch them and stop the rewrites. And unfortunately, that Mei Mei spends most of her time sleeping isn't my fault. She's made to suspend on her own when she hasn't been accessed in a few hours. Super ecological, huh?
Theoretically, she can get a supposedly limitless amount of energy just because she has a faster processing speed than Shurelia.
However, we've already gotten to the point of who would win in a fight. Shurelia said in a previous issue that it's impossible for her to lose, but unfortunately, there's no way she can win against me at all.
Don't say scandalous things. Why I'm getting this kind of questions now?
For the time being, I'll just say that I stopped the virus creation program after everything ended. In short, the only enemies that remain and that still attack people aren't my creations.
These are beasts, of which the Poms are the most representative creatures, and are all the "Abnormal Monsters" that were created through genetic research during the First Era.
So even after I've stopped the virus creation program, there are still many threats left over in this world.
Here's a question, as I've read the setting materials collection book, but there's still something I can't understand.
It's said that Third Generations don't have Hymn Codes and thus can't Download Hymn Crystals, but if her Hymn Code was registered in the Tower, she would be able to Download Hymn Crystals. Is this correct?
Or typical Third Generations don't have the part where the Hymn Code goes?
Strictly speaking, Third Generations do have Hymn Codes. It's just that their spectra hasn't been registered in the Tower of "Ar tonelico".
Since the Pureblooded β-Types were originally manufactured lives, generally when their Triangular Nuclear Loops started being cultivated, the FFT Spectra of their Triangular Nuclear Loops are sampled and measured, and part of it is recorded in the Server.
That method still continues being used now. But well, as Third Generations don't have Triangular Nuclear Loops and D-Cellophanes, it's more difficult to accurately convey their spectra to the Tower.
The only reason Aurica was able to Download the crystals is obviously because her spectrum has a remarkable similarity to Mir's, nothing else.
My spectrum and that of that girl are almost identical... I didn't really mind using her during the game, but now I think it's unavoidable she'd be reluctant to try to associate with me again...
We're a very nice team, huh?
Yes. If it's with you, I think I'd be able to take over the world.
That's true. I'll be looking forward to what will come next... Huhuhu...
Where should I start playing the straight man here...?
Hmm... I don't know...
To play the straight may or to not play the straight man... that's the question for you, Sis...
Huh...!? Me!? U... ummm! ...If that's the case...!!
「ジャクリとミュールって…？」 Jakuri and Mir are...?

The second anniversary of the Ar Portal has finally come. We've opened up the Second Anniversary Festival since a few days ago, and I'm very happy from the reactions you all have shown us.
Together with the second anniversay, we're also opening up the Flash Cosmosphere 2 project and we'll be also unveiling several goods in the future, as I haven't forgotten my initial intentions of wanting to make things you all can truly enjoy. So I hope we'll continue helping each other from now on!
For the future, I'm feeling like I'm constantly hearing voices that say things like "Damn, he's at it again!" or "He's doing absurd things...", and that's how the Ar tonelico project will continue existing. I'll be very happy if we can continue enjoying together.
