Jakuri's Technical Service Center.
Now I think about it, this is the first time I've ever stood in this place all by myself, huh?
I didn't really care about it, but let's try doing it... it feels pretty good. I'm getting to itch to cheat around a little...
Good day to you~ Kyuukyuu!
A question! Since the Pureblooded β-types are called clones of the Origins, does it mean Ar Ciel has cloning technologies? Also, would it be possible to make clones of the Pureblooded β-types and Third Generations?
(Or at least I felt like a heard something that sounded like "clone"...)
Unfortunately, creating clones of the βs is impossible.
That is because the definition of "clone" we have here is slightly different from the one in your world.
In our world, we don't mean that they were born as copies created through genetic manipulation when we call them "clones of the Origins".
Explaining the way this works out in detail would be pretty difficult, so while I won't give the full explanation here,
I can say to put it in a simple way that the βs were created by creating β-6D as a duplicate of me, dividing her gigantic Soulspace into compartments, and using these segments for their minds.
Therefore, while the βs have a part that was copied from me, that sole part is all they have related to me.
The rest depends on the Reyvateil's kernel, or in other words, the part that controls all their basic functions and includes facets like precision and physical appearance, which is modified for each individual Reyvateil.
So please think of them in a way similar to a car production line: while their engine, tires and chassis are all mass-produced copies, the bodies themselves and their interiors are modified for each individual model.
The part that serves as the basic source of life for these Reyvateils is the one that increases the most their production costs and the one that also drains the most resources.
It is due to that reason that β-6D was created as a life on the same rank as an Origin, as it was planned that it would greatly reduce the productions costs due to having all the βs share the same source of life she has.
It's possible for not only Third Generations, but also Pureblooded β-types to awaken as IPDs?
Even Pureblooded β-types could end up having IPD outbreaks if their minds were lodged inside Infel Phira.
But since they don't have human natures, they would become truly berserk creatures, as an outbreak could end up completely blowing away their ego.
Maybe that's the only fortunate side to not having any βs registered in Infel Phira.
Pleased to meet you. This is my first submission. About the D-Cellophane, Misha became smaller when the Hymn Crystal was removed from her body. Does that mean that the Hymn Crystal was linked to her D-Cellophane? And in a previous Technical Service Center, it was said that the D-Cellophane contains the information that regulates growth. Upon reading that, I began having the feeling that all the previous Star Singers looked just like Misha does... but was that the case?
It's been explained before, but the D-Cellophane also works like an expansion because Hymmnos can be Preinstalled into it.
In my case, Chronicle Key was Preinstalled into it, so what Tenba extracted from me thinking it was a Hymn Crystal actually turned out to be my D-Cellophane.
By the way, all the Pureblooded β-Types have a single Hymmnos Preinstalled into their D-Cellophanes: that is "EXEC_HYMME/.", the same Hymmnos we use to invoke our Song Magic.
Strictly speaking, its Effect Key is the "Manifestation of Delusions". As for the Third Generations, they have that information from the D-Cellophane etched into their minds when they awaken, so that's why they can sing Song Magic even if they aren't aware about it.
If there was a number of accesses that went over the output limit for either Ar tonelico or Infel Phira, would they suffer from processing slowdown (Song Magic becomes harder to execute) like a PC, and would that downgrade the quality of the Songs? And if such a number of accesses was done deliberately, would it be possible to temporarily suspend the functions of the Song Magic Server?
It's theoretically possible, but I have never seen that happen.
But well, the servers make use of quantum arithmetic units, so it's next to impossible that it ends up suffering from processing slowdown from that comes from processing queries that take place in the three-dimensional world.
As for a phenomenon that made Song Magic hard to execute, that would be the single time that Ar tonelico was Suspended. If you accessed the Tower during that time, you wouldn't get a Ping (response) back from it, so it was observed that waiting for it to come would use a tremendous amount of concentration (because you need to keep concentrated while waiting for the return ping), but that wouldn't count as a processing slowdown.
However, it might be a good idea to avoid that happening, as a Song Magic processing slowdown would cause it to take far more time to be executed.
I have a question about the SH Server that lodges the Reyvateils' memories.
If people who could access the Tower like Lady Shurelia or Mir knew the Hymn Code or other information about a Reyvateil, would they be able to lookup and pry into the memories of that particular person?
We could if we had a software especially made for that, but we normally can't view them.
The reason for that isn't because finding a specific address and seeing to whose's Soulspace it belongs isn't really hard.
Rather, searching for memories within that stream of data and looking at what they're thinking is very problematic due to several reasons.
After all, we can only see the contents of the Soulspaces as mere flows of data when we're in the Binary Field.
And this issue was fully loaded with very deep discussions.
But since it seems that the other corners are getting revamped, so even corners that have a stable popularity shouldn't be resting in their laurels.
We have to put even more spirit from now on, so get ready, because we intend to attack even deeper topics in the next issues.
I have the feeling that doing that would strange us even further from the people...
And as we approach the end of the year, our job becomes busier.
I wonder how many among you are going back home right now. The trains seemed far emptier than usual for the Obon season, so it might be more fun to ride a car than to go in train.
Please, make sure to rest easy in your homes during the New Year season to recharge your batteries. After all, you'll need every bit of it when Ar tonelico 3 releases later on. (*laughs*)
今週のトウコウスフィアは？ How was this issue?
[ 面白かった！ ] Interesting!
ってか面白くない It was rather boring
[ 前回の方が面白かった ] The previous issue was more interesting
