Well, this part is taken from Jakuri’s Lv. 2 Cosmosphere, as part of an optional event. However, I think this part wasn’t given the necessary care it should, given that Wave Theory (and all of its derivatives) are the basis of the Ar tonelico world. And don’t worry about spoilers, since this part doesn’t contain any.

(205) :10:10:
EN::This universe is comprised of waves.
NEW:This universe is comprised of waves.

(205) :11:11:
EN::The big bang that awakened this world was caused by a 
little atomic nucleus called the exa pieco.
NEW:The big bang that created ??this?? world was caused by 
just an atomic nucleus called the Exa Pico.

(205) :12:12:
EN::Exa pieco changes the astronomical wave motions at a rapid 
rate that you cannot measure with time.
NEW:Exa Pico changes the astronomical wave motions at such a 
rapid and violent rate that we cannot measure it with our general 
concept of time.

(205) :13:13:
EN::An unstable force of wave motion for a short amount of time, 
a distortion, is emitted on the outside...
NEW:Because of that, the strength of the wave loses its balance in 
that short period of time. That is, it emits a (distortion) to the 

(205) :14:14:
EN::Provoking a conducting wave, as you’re familiar with from 
wave science.
NEW:Deriving into a ??Dynamic Wave??, which you should know by 
now from wave science.

(205) :15:15:
EN::There are many conducting waves,
including D-waves and H-waves.
NEW:Naturally, there are several classes of Dynamic Waves, 
including D-Waves and H-Waves.

(205) :16:16:
EN::All the conducting waves will transmit through the air and 
create the universe of exa pieco.
NEW:Thus、 the Dynamic Waves will propagate through the space of 
this world、 creating the Universe of Exa Pico.

(205) :17:17:
EN::This universe is a place that is affected by exa pieco.
NEW:Therefore、 the Universe turns into an area in the world where 
Exa Pico exerts its influence.


(205) :29:29:
EN::Well, so those conducting waves will produce new standing 
NEW:Well, those Dynamic Waves will produce new Static Waves.

(205) :30:30:
EN::This is a result after the conducting waves produced by exa 
pieco have affected the Sea of Nam.
NEW:That is the result of the Dynamic Waves created by Exa Pico 
expanding their area of effect in the world, starting with a point in 
the Sea of Num.

(205) :31:31:
EN::From this, you can say that the Sea of Nam is the universe 
at this point.
NEW:As a result, that point of the Sea of Num turns into the 

(205) :32:32:
EN::Just as an established theory of the universal wave theory, an 
energy of a conducting D-wave by...
NEW:Just as the popular yet established wave theory of ??Wave 
Interference?? says, an energy known as a Dynamic D-Wave...

(205) :33:33:
EN::The ??interference of a wave?? will determine the amplitude 
and frequency of the initial space at zero.
NEW:Determines the amplitude and frequency of a point whenever 
the amplitude and frequency of the space it occupates is zero.

I know this is something difficult to understand, but NISA’s version doesn’t make any sense in many points (not to mention modifying the terminology that was already established).

    NEW:The big bang that created ??this?? world was caused by  just an atomic nucleus called the Exa Pico.

    Er… I think that could use some work.

    “The big bang that created “this” world was caused by an atomic nucleus called the Exa Pico.”


    “The big bang that created “this” world was caused by just one atomic nucleus called the “Exa Pico.”

    For what it’s worth, I think the question marks are the weird characters that the game uses for quotation marks, not acutal question marks. But yeah, the “just an” bit is a little off. I’m sure it will get taken care of in editing! “Occupates”, too, should probably be “occupies”.

    Where’s the “Occupates” located at?

    i’d say the second suggestion was better.

    reiterating it: “The big bang that created “this” world was caused by just one atomic nucleus called the “Exa Pico.”

    I think that worked out the best , too.

    Well Aquagon,

    I am glad to see you are still keeping up with this and harshing out all the technical definitions. Keep up the good work!

    I like it except that the 「この」 looks more like emphasis to me. In other words, ” The big bang that created this world was caused by just one atomic nucleus called the “Exa Pico.” ” Perhaps 「この」世界 could be expressed as “the world as we know it.”

    No updates in a while D:

    … sorry, been burned too many times.

    I am too stupid to understand the theory things XD

    Well, everything will be fixed during editing.
