Hello to you all, members of the vulgar and useless radioactive waste known as human society.
I came today to personally correct you all. I'll make you read this Technical Service Center so all you become at least 1 byte smarter and make yourselves useful to the society.
I actually intended to put a Cleansing program with subliminal effects on this corner, but as you might expect, I had to terminate it. The troubles I'm going through just for a bunch of dirty strips of cloth. Anyway, you...
Subframey, shouldn't we begin answering the questions right after finishing the title call?
I've got a question for Lady Harve.
I didn't think that the Cleansed humans in the Slave District would be able to Dive at all, but were they there in the first place because they wouldn't be able to Dive?
*sigh*... And right at the beginning I get a boring question? Should I bother continuing with replying to it, or just move over to Sleep Mode?
I'll just answer it the simplest way I can. It'd be better for you to experience Cleansing yourself. Understood?
No, Subframey! That's no good as an answer.
Do you remember this isn't Clustania?
...Okay, okay. I know. It's so annoying, though.
The Cleansed humans in the Slave District are all essential personnel for the Dives. In the first place, non-Cleansed humans would be unable to Dive into the βs because the βs would be too scared to let them do it.
And that's because they would reveal the main faults and handicaps these βs have. Cleansed humans have pretty much no sense of self, so they can subsist in the minimal conditions needed to harbor life.
As long as the food distribution system works, they will be fed, and they will go to sleep once night comes... but when we require them to Dive, they will rush into their Pods as fast as possible.
This is because non-Cleansed humans would cause revolts over the food, would have quarrels among themselves, would go to sleep late and they wouldn't go into their Pods when we required Divers, which would be quite a tragedy for us.
But... isn't Diving a mutual clash of feelings?
How can a Dive be effective if the Divers are people with waveforms that are just a bit above of being flat lines?
Well, it's true that for the non-emotional part, the trash that hasn't been Cleansed can have good effects. However, if we look at the average efficiency and risk, and also consider the environment in which they were raised, the Cleansed ones would have a much better effect: one that couldn't be compared to the normal trashy ones.
So you even went as far as calculating, maintaining and administrating all of that?
That's great, Subframey!
I have a question about replenishing Tyria's Telomeres.
According to the Setting Materials Collection, there are several reasons why it isn't really possible to replenish Tyria's Telomeres, so at least about the rate at which she consumes them, if the Triangular Nuclear Loop that doubles as her core was created and then put in Standby inside a nurturing tank, without initiating the process to give her a humanoid shape, I'm sure it'd be possible to reduce the Telomeres it provides to just the mere necessary.
I think there are a lot of records and technologies related to the creation of the Origins at the First Tower, hidden under Lady Shurelia's administration, and since part of that data most likely also remained either on the Tower of Origins or in the VISTA frame, maybe they could be used as references.
Once this has been used to clear the problems, it could be possible to replenish the Telomeres of Tyria's Triangular Nuclear Loop, or even develop some sort of system that can duplicate the conditions of another TNL on it (most likely some method based from VR21), so wouldn't be possible to replenish Tyria's Telomere with these methods?
Of course it would have huge costs, but...
(Kimura Shuuichi at the Walking Electromagnetic Tower)
Well, wouldn't it be possible? This goes beyond my knowledge, so I can't really say anything.
This question is directed to me, huh?
It's true that if we look at it from the angle of Tyria's Telomere there is a lot of problems, but if we expand our field of vision a bit, maybe we could find some other method in which the Telomeres aren't a problem to worry about anymore.
By nature, the Telomeres exist to protect the body of the Reyvateil. Basically, they terminate its activity before any irreparable malfunctions begin occurring.
Therefore, even replenishing Tyria's Telomeres wouldn't be good for her. Of course, I think that there wouldn't be any problems if she could take back just the part of her Telomeres that she gave Saki and Finnel as replenishment, but it'd be bad for other reasons.
If you actually want to help Tyria, it would be necessary to go beyond mere Telomere replenishment and actually switch out Tyria's Triangular Nuclear Loop. After all, the Telomeres have a finite counter in the end and they degrade as fast to a near-equal Triangular Nuclear Loop to which they point.
But Tyria's Triangular Nuclear Loop has zero compatibility with that of the βs, right?
That's what our perverted father said, and I'm sure I saw it being structured like that.
You should stop saying bad things about our father, Kurogane.
But it's just as you said. So if Kurogane had any documents containing the specifications of the Tyria Version of the Triangular Nuclear Loop, and if you could gather all of the technology available in the world, it would be possible to restore... no, better said, to renew her Triangular Nuclear Loop.
Well, that would be for as long as the Third Tower's Rinkernator continues operating normally.
I've seen all sorts of languages aside of the Hymmnos language, such as Japanese, being used for the lyrics of the Hymmnos songs, but does this means that it's possible to sing Hymmnos songs in other languages aside of the Hymmnos language? I read in the explanation on carrier waves from the Advanced Wave Science Lecture that discrepancies between the audible pronunciation and the high-frequency band of feelings would cause a considerable drop in the efficiency of the song. So I thought that the parts sung in Japanese would have a much lower transmission efficiency, but... Since my understanding is limited, I'm misunderstanding something here? Please tell me, Harvestasha!
PS: I want to study harder on Wave Science to prepare myself for the entrance exam to the Sol Ciel University, but I haven't been able to find any good books that I can use as reference, so I cling in tears to the Technical Service Center for help. If there are any good materials I can read up on afterwards, please tell me about them.
It means that 0b0010101110101110110101000010011101001011001101101/n
Because I can convey my feelings perfectly like this.
If you're looking for an answer about if it's possible to execute Hymmnos with other languages and if they would have effect or not, "it's possible and they would have a effect". However, as you said, it's true that their power would weaken to a certain degree. But it can't be helped, as you're a human.
This means that since I'm me, I can get the greatest output with 0b01011101010101010110101010010100101001/n, but to low-spec beings like you, that's completely impossible.
Allow me to explain.
It's true that the execution efficiency will change depending on the language. As the Hymmnos language is a language specialized for the goal "of giving meaning to the Dynamic H-Waves", it has the greatest execution efficiency. However, the singer might decide that she would be better off using other languages. It's very closely related to the feelings she has at that time, but if she decides that she would be able to sing stronger feelings with other languages, she would use other languages aside of the Hymmnos language.
There is no set rule for this. Still, this is no more than choosing the language she deems the best for her current situation.
Well, the Hymmnos language might allow to craft songs that have a high efficiency in average, but as the other languages are more connected to ordinary life, it'd be possible for them to show momentary peaks of extreme efficiency at specific instants according to how they are used.
Agh, it's useless. That's why I hate unstable life forms. In my case, I could get a fixed efficiency for sure with just giving orders with 0s and 1s.
But that wouldn't have any meaning beyond giving orders to the amplification Towers.
I've just come up with this question, so while it might be a bit impolite, I'd like to receive some information on it.
While Third Generations [become unable to craft Hymmnos inside their minds (Issue #71)] once they leave the Symphonic Power area of their Tower, I'd guess that means in short that their connection with the Song Magic Server has been lost.
Then, what would happen to a Pureblooded β-type if they got out of the Symphonic Power area of her Tower temporarily, considering [her Soulspace itself is (Issue #60)] inside the SH Server?
I've got the feeling that in the worst case she would [disappear] because the Static H-Wave connection of her Triangular Nuclear Loop has been cut, but...
It might be something trivial, but I'd be very glad if you could answer me this.
(Shaved Ice Shop)
She would disappear because it'd become impossible to preserve her body. If she values her life, she should stay near her Tower. *sigh*, this is the only flaw of the Reyvateils. I'd be so glad if the humans had this property instead.
If that was the case, I could send them flying with a railgun far beyond the Tower and turn them into water, quickly turning waste into resources! Really things never seem to go well on this world.
Umm, strictly speaking, they wouldn't turn into water instantly. However, the farther the Reyvateil goes away from the server, the increasingly harder it would get for the Server to keep the communication with her, and thus she would get sleepy.
Once she has fallen into that lethargic state, it would be necessary to carry her away a little farther from the Server for her to turn into water, so if you begin feeling sleepy, please make sure to turn back at once.
Once she has turned into water, the Server would immediately determine she is dead and it would update the status of her Triangular Nuclear Loop as being offline. In other words, she would completely die.
I think I saw a question about METHOD_HYMMELI/. on the previous issue, and I think it was said on there that once Infel Phira has changed into Metafalica Mode and begins maintaining the continent, the Boundary Gates would get closed and the Mode Shifts would become impossible to execute. However on this, how would the IPDs be able to convey their feelings to each other and share their Symphonic Power?
And I think it'd be impossible for non-IPDs to transmit the Symphonic Power they needed for that occasion. That's quite the weakness for the Reyvateils connected to Ar tonelico.
I thought that it wouldn't have been funny if Cocona hadn't been an IPD...
Looks like the superior AIs have been talking about some advanced matters above. I can't afford to lose to them, so I have to answer this question.
Once Infel Phira has changed flawlessly into Mode Metafalica, several of its functions will be terminated, the most extreme of them being the Mode Shifts.
As the original goal for Infel Phira's creation was using it as the core of the land, the Mode Shifts would become unnecessary once it began fulfilling its purpose. In fact, it's my pet theory that the Mode Shifts were superfluous to begin with.
Additionally, I have to say that once Infel Phira has stabilized into Mode Metalica, the IPDs WOULDN'T have a complete individual consciousness (like that of the Third Generations).
After all, there is an appropriate reason for why Mode Metafalica is called the [Land Consciousness Mode].
As long as they have healthy minds, their individual consciousnesses won't have any significant changes. In this point it's exactly the same as Replekia. However, it differs from on it on the fact that Metafalica also considers the subconscious: the IPDs that have been transmigrated into the consciousness of the land will be always connected subconsciously, and their feelings can influence the Metafalica continent itself.
Besides, that consciousness of the land also exists as an additional persona called the [Consensus] of the IPDs, which decides for example what kind of status they want for the Metafalica continent, the plans of usage for the Symphonic Power and even the control of the continent. So this means that the IPDs acknowledged Cocona without realizing it, and granted her the transmission of Symphonic Power over to Kaira.
Finally, saying that this would be a tremendous flaw for the First Tower Reyvateils would be getting out of the topic. This is because the IPDs themselves can't comply with the Symphonic Power requests that Hymmeli had if we look at them as individuals.
However, and unlike Infel Phira, which is now administrated by the consciousness of the land, Ar tonelico (the First Tower) currently has its main Symphonic Power control systems in an unknown location and status.
Even in the current days of the Great Inter-Tower Symphonic Power Network, the space covered by Ar tonelico is also the space covered by Sol Marta, but honestly, Shurelia doesn't even know that.
Hmph... just as I thought, dealing with lower intelligence life forms consumes my Symphonic Power more intensely than normal.
I'm having an strong urge to get into suspend mode now...
But everyone still raised some wonderful questions for us this time.
It was very fun for me.
Next time, I'd like for us to answer questions together with Tyria.
I think you should stop trying to do that, but...
Well, just do whatever you want.
I think you might have noticed it already, but we've finished making the Toukousphere Viewer. When we opened up the Toukousphere, we never imagined that it would become so popular, so we just used a system a normal topic selection system for its navigation (like the one you can see in the top of the page).
That won't be changing anytime soon, but I felt that we could use an exclusive system for making the Toukousphere easier to to browse.
We thought that the Toukouviewer was something we should have made since a long time ago, so I'm very sorry we didn't manage to do it until now. As for other matters, I have been swamped with other tasks such as the Supporteils and the Gust Shop, but the DLC has been finally masterized, so the efforts for the coming times will be easier to handle. I'm very sorry for having gotten so slow with my work.
I hope this hasn't made you disgusted with me, and please, let's always continue enjoying Ar tonelico. (Tsuchiya)
