The World (世界, Sekai?) is used to refer to either the Earth, Gaia, or the collective unconsciousness of mankind, Alayashiki. There also exist the Reverse Side of the World and the Outside of the World.

The Ultimate Ones are vessels upon which the planet's will is manifested, and rather than being part of the Counter Force, they are essentially the planets themselves. Unlike most other celestial bodies in the Solar System, there is no clear Ultimate One for Earth. The creature closest to being the Ultimate One of Earth is Archetype Earth.

Another definition of "world" refers to a particular location or environment, much like its real-world definition. Differing from the concept of the Earth, a world can exist in a variety of shapes, such as "the world of the humans", the "Reverse Side of the World", "mental world", or "underworld."[1][2] This article will deal with the former definition of "world".

History[]

The Earth was initially formed from molten magma and gas. Life did not emerge until the inhospitable planet cooled and settled. The infernal landscape of the Earth before genesis has become part of the genetic memories of all creatures on Earth, and humans drew from this imagery when they created the concept of Hell.

Age of Gods[]

The time period beginning with the genesis of the Earth until the beginning of the Common Era around 0 AD is referred to as the Age of Gods (神代, Jindai?), during which the world followed laws based not on physics but on Mystery. This period is marked by a greater proliferation of Phantasmal Species and greater interaction between gods and mortals. This is the age of heroes and mythology, when rules of mankind and the laws of the world were different right down to the very fundamental physics of reality itself, but this period ended many years ago. Even Magecraft itself is described as being closer to Magic in this era and Caster's abilities reinforce this concept. The currently-revealed Second Age of Gods eventually transitioned into the Age of Man due to three major events.

Deterioration[]

SefarTrueForm.jpg

Originally, gods existed in physical form as manifestations of nature itself, and ruled the Earth and its civilizations. The Deterioration began with the invasion of Sefar in 12,000 BC. After Sefar destroyed the majority of the Earth and a massive number of gods, she was finally beaten back by a Holy Sword forged in the core of the planet; however, due to the damage done by Sefar, the influence and power of the gods declined whereas those of humanity grew. The gods slowly began to lose their physical forms and eventually could only walk on the Earth by possessing compatible humans.

Separation[]

Realizing that if the weakening of the gods were to continue, the Age of Gods itself would end, the gods of Mesopotamia created Gilgamesh around 2,600 BC as the keystone to connect the gods and humans. However, Gilgamesh unexpectedly rebelled against the gods and encouraged the complete separation of the gods and the humans. Due to this, the decline of the gods was accelerated and the gods lost their powers and became Divine Spirits, forced to exist likely in the Reverse Side of the World , only able to observe the Earth without directly interfering. Later, the demise of Solomon, the King of Magic, accelerated the decline of Mystery.

Trigger[]

In 700 BC, there was a certain Trigger that caused the end of the Age of Gods and the beginning of the next age. Further details are unknown.[3]

Age of Fairies[]

Not much is known about the Age of Fairies (妖精の時代, Yōsei no Jidai?), but the Age of Fairies has ended.[4][5]

Age of Man[]

Around 0 AD, the Age of Gods ended entirely and the population of humanity grew explosively. Because the Earth obeys the law of the most prosperous species on its surface, the rules of the world were completely changed from one that mostly obeyed Mystery to one that mostly obeyed physics. The Phantasmal Species ceded the Earth's surface to humans and moved to the Reverse Side of the World, where Mystery still thrives.

The current age is identified as the Age of Man (人間の時代, Ningen no Jidai?), where Mysteries such as magecraft are dwindling in favor of science. The Five Magics were born in this age.

Counter Force[]

Future[]

The future of the planet is undetermined, with many possible outcomes available depending on the conditions present in the parallel worlds. The Mana Depletion of the world of Fate/EXTRA is caused by the Aylesbury Valesti producing a pole shift that began the depletion of mana. The world of Tsuki no Sango experienced a similar pole shift and the decline of the human race rather than magecraft. The world of Notes died entirely, and humanity still occupied its corpse. Gilgamesh saw a future where, following the wishes of the Çatalhöyük,[6] humanity outgrows the planet and reaches for the light millions of lightyears away.[7] Merlin saw a similar future, a new Age following the Age of Man called the Age of the Will (意思の時代, Ishi no jidai?), where humanity will live among the stars and those unable to live without a flesh and blood body will be left behind.[4] It is also Archetype Earth's wish for humans led by their forward way of thinking.[8] Flat Escardos also made the cryptic declaration that all human lives are valuable "for jumping clear of the Earth", with his eyes somehow seeing a far-off destination, probably the same as Merlin and Gilgamesh.[9]

One possible future of the world is the Overcount 1999 (オーバーカウント1999?) phenomenon, the beginning of the decline of humanity. With the Earth's resources dying, the ability to live on the planet is gradually lost. The nucleus of the Earth, what can be said to be its soul, is hurt.[10] The cause is unknown, possibly the Aylesbury Valesti ritual, and the phenomenon is associated with the Land of Steel.

Fate/EXTRA[]

The world of Fate/EXTRA shares the same events as that of Fate/stay night up until a certain point until a "certain major incident" in the 1970s that caused the world's mana to start drying up causes it to split off into its own separate universe. As of the 2030s, the world's mana was completely gone. The cause of the phenomenon, the stagnation of human history, is said to be ■■■■■■.[11]

Fate/Grand Order[]

The future was previously established so that humans would prosper for the next century at the minimum, but that future has become unobservable in 2015 due to the appearance of the spacetime anomaly designated Singularity F. Using Grand Orders, the Chaldea Security Organization seeks to correct the Singularities and undo the Incineration of Human Order.

One year after the Chaldea Security Organization stopped the Incineration of Human Order and saved the planet, the world was once again attacked, this time by an Alien God claiming to be from outer space and with the help of the Crypters, the former members of Chaldea's elite Team A. On December 31, 2017, the seven Fantasy Trees fell to the surface of the earth, creating across the world seven Lostbelts, alternate histories that had been pruned from Proper Human History. This act erased the surface Texture of the planet, creating a Wiped Blank Earth (白紙化地球?).[12] The branches of the Fantasy Trees became a membrane that covered the Earth, blocking the stars from view, and the planet is lifeless save from some rare areas that survived the blanking, including Area 51.[13]

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA[]

The parallel world of the Ainsworth family in Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA has experienced a shift in the axis of the world and the start of the depletion of its magical energy through a cause unknown to humans. This has brought on changes in the environment like abnormal weather and changes to the coastlines, such as Japan experiencing cold weather and snow during the summer. Plant life has declined, causing a decline in the animal life that feeds off the plants, and it has reached the human population as well. The process for the depletion of energy will take several hundred years, and the humans will not last more than ten generations before the world's destruction.

While science will allow humans to prevail in the short term even with the miracles of the world vanishing, the rules of the world being rewritten make it a surety that humans will perish. "Dry spots" are beginning to appear around the world in places where the energy has been completely exhausted, and an unknown particle unlike magical energy is spreading through those areas. Acting as a poison to wipe out everything alive under the current rules of the planet, the current inhabitants cannot exist in the new world. The Ainsworths plan to use the Holy Grail, Miyu Edelfelt, to use the remaining energy on the planet to make humans into beings that can survive in a new world, similar to the A-Rays and Liners of Notes.

Fate/Requiem[]

Main article: "After" the Holy Grail War

The world of Fate/Requiem takes place in 2025, and 14 years beforehand was devastated by many Holy Grail Wars all occurring at once, also known as World War III. It is said that not a single nation was left unharmed by the fighting. Countless drones were deployed during the war to the point that drones have become a horrible thing not to be talked about by the people who lived through it. In addition to the devastation on the surface, much of the world's sea life was also wiped out in the crossfire.

The conflict was resolved by Chitose Manazuru and her Servant Lucius Longinus, who obtained the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail created Mosaic City where survivors gathered, though much of the world beyond the city's borders is a wasteland and water levels have risen dramatically. Everybody who survived the war were given Grails in their hearts, and the new generations born after had Grails within them from birth. Everybody has a Servant bound to them by fate, as well as Command Spells. Humans can no longer die of sickness or of old age, though are still able to be murdered. People can even use Command Spells to change the physical age of their bodies. As Servants have become commonplace and are living in Mosaic City alongside living people, Mystery is largely exposed and magecraft is common knowledge, though like in the world before not everybody has the capacity to be a mage.

Notes[]

Main article: Land of Steel

Land of Steel (鋼の大地, Hagane no Daichi?, [over count 1999]) is the name of the world in the time of Notes. It is not the official name, but a nickname passed down by those who live on the dead planet. The land is no longer able to support life due to the continents being mostly cracked wastelands unable to properly allow for the growth of food, and the atmosphere, covered with gray and sepia clouds, is no longer suitable for animals. Despite these conditions, humanity has lived on by utilizing their developed civic technology.[14] Due to their survival, the planet, not wishing to have beings live on past itself, made a final wish to the other planets to completely wipe out humanity. They responded by sending the Ultimate Ones, which ravage the Land of Steel in order to fulfill their purpose.

Cloud Sky.

Blood Sky.

The world is filled with Grain (ジン, Jin?, "Gin", [grain "Ether"]) harmful and unpredictable space dust particles generated from the dead planet.[15] It is lethal to regular humans, who require special medication and machinery to process it, but it has had beneficial effects for A-Rays and Liners. The energy transfer rate of the Grain scattered in atmosphere is incredibly high, and it resulted in a new level of warfare that was never before possible due to the A-Rays and Knight Arms making weapons of the old age useless. The Cloud Sky (空が、昏い, Sora ga, Kurai?, The Sky, it's Dark), said to be a barrier created by the Six Sisters to repel the Ultimate Ones, is a thick layer of clouds that has hidden the sky since the Great War.[16] It covers the Blood Sky (空が、赤い, Sora ga, Akai?, The Sky, it's Red), which is completely red rather than blue. This resulted not from pollution, but from the blood of Type Pluto after its destruction in the atmosphere completely covering the sky.[17]

The main inhabitants after the death of the world were the A-rays and the surviving human race. They fought against each other in a conflict called The Great War (大戦, Taisen?, [Babel's Tale]) where the A-Rays, under the Six Sisters, wished to rule the world, while the humans fought to survive.[18] Humanity, on the verge of defeat, eventually developed Liners and the Knights to help in their battles, but this did nothing more than further destroy the already dead planet. The war had no victor due to the sudden appearance of the Ultimate Ones, having arrived to fulfill their goal of wiping out all living beings. Both sides were nearly wiped out, and they started working together to fight against their combined threats. The Ultimate Ones slowed their activity after the end of the war, but still continue to slowly wipe out the remaining humans. Type Jupiter, Type Venus, and Type Saturn have all been destroyed, which has led for a call to the planets to initiate a final battle with the humans.

Tsuki no Sango[]

The world of Tsuki no Sango takes place in approximately the year 3000, when humankind arrived at the peak of its civilization, but is losing its will to keep living.

The Lunar Immigration Plan was one of the strategies they came up with to deal with an overpopulation crisis. It succeeded, but then a great disaster struck: humanity lost its "heart's fire". The desire for growing, expanding or excitement for invention. With this, the Moon's humans decided to abandon the Earth's humans. After 50 years of that tragedy, the Earth and Moon sealed their doors to each other, becoming entirely independent of each other.

Apparently, some decades later the light of the Moon disappeared and at the same time, humanity’s population on Earth also dramatically declined. The motive was simple: no one felt like propagating the species anymore. After these fifty years, humanity was to be extinct, if not for a group that still "keep trying".

Tsuki no Sango is "a degenerated world where magecraft yet lingers". Like the world of Notes, it is a Land of Steel type of world.[19] Like the world of EXTRA, it also experienced a pole shift.

    Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
    An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
    Also called the spirit particle imaginary pit.
    A world purge by means of event rewriting, making maximum use of the EX skill “Potnia Theron” BB had acquired.
    The goddess who is the mother of the earth goddesses who created the earth is, in other words, the “root” that created all creation.
    This Noble Phantasm is an anti-world Noble Phantasm that outputs information like an ultra-precise 3d printer and crushes the present world with the world desired by the user.
    The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. CCC as the name suggests is a cursed pit that bores out reality.
    In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of writing over and rewriting information of fields such as luck and coincidence.
    While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravity fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.
    When used in combat, BB’s familiars, the shapeshifters engulf the target, and after turning into a sphere, is wiped out of existence along with the target and the dimension with it.
    Normally, a structure in which value can be shared cannot be constructed in the far side of the world, which is imaginary space. What established BB’s internal world as the Sakura labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.

    Advanced Level AI
    An artificial intelligence configured according to their program. In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs," but "do not exist as actual beings." In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not." They are merely a mechanisms for the sake of allowing human lives to progress smoothly.
    As it is the same for the SE.RA.PH, they are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its completion.
    Within the SE.RA.PH. the humanoid virtual lifeforms are: the NPCs that perform only one task, AIs who have been granted the capability for self-judgement, and the advanced level AIs who have been trusted with the capability for self-judgement ad the management of a section.
    Advanced level AIs are things created to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation." As they are perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with a at least a soul, but while the soul "is there," it is contents are still colorless.
    The virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH creates are reset with the round of the Holy Grail War. The NPCs and AIs return to zero, while advanced level AIs retain just their persona and their memories are reset--made to pretend that they never existed.
    When the Holy Grail War is over, the one who is left alive is the Master standing at the summit. This is a fact that applies not just to the Masters but is also held in common by the virtual lifeforms that the SE.RA.PH created.
    It appears that BB is an advanced level AI entrusted with managing the health of the Masters, the same as Sakura. However, as she is now rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods she uses to "manage the Masters" have become extreme.

    Khakkhara of Domination
    The teacher's pointer that BB carries. A device that allows her to use her use her authority as an advanced level AI to its fullest. Although restricted to the far side of the moon, this allows BB to revise the game rules (spirit particle laws within the SE.RA.PH).
    The ten crowns of domination worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's cane. This is a male principle responding to a female principle; it's true nature is a phallus (an erect rod).
    The symbol of the king of the world who was granted power and authority by a great dragon and, during a period of 42 months, spat as many insolent words as they desired and had received the right to desecrate all things.
    The beast's heads were the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, they symbolized the Roman Empire itself, and the ten horns were symbols of the emperors... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius.

    Skills

    Golden Grail [EX]
    The golden grail that BB possesses. The Holy Grail. The Holy Grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish desires.
    The grail that the great enchantress who appears in The Revelation of St. John the Divine holds. Though it's a counterfeit Holy Grail, it's because that it's a counterfeit Holy Grail that it's become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans without paying heed to right or wrong.
    To the Christians of those days, who considered honorable poverty a virtue, this grail, which was formed as a symbol of treasures such as gold, is no doubt the meaning of corrupt wealth, greed, and the vanity that leads one to adorn oneself.
    As the grail held by the great enchantress of Babylon who personifies the Roman Empire, it clearly symbolizes worldly riches, which is the opposite of Christ's words "Do not pile up the wealth of the earth."
    "I saw a single woman astride a red beast. This beast, whose entire body was full of numerous blasphemous names, had seven heads and ten horns."
    This is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman who was straddling this beast, according to the book of Revelation. A large beast with seven heads like a hydra came from the sea and disembarked toward the Holy City. This beast and woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.
    As this woman is said to give birth to all evil, those who are imprudent or greedy cannot resist her allure and become corrupted by that grail.
    This is a digression, but it is said that the red Saber who calls herself the emperor was regarded the same as this beast and antagonized after her death by the Christians.

    Self-Modification [EX]
    A skill that allows one to restructure oneself. AIs created by the Moon Cell are under an absolute rule, "Improving one's functionality is not allowed."
    However, BB, who had escaped that yoke due to her breaking down, began to expand her own functions. In order to boost her calculating power, she had that black noise prey on and dismantle NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants, then used them as her own memory.
    Though they are appendix-like additions that won't spare her from the fate of collapsing on her own, BB has changed into a hyper level AI who holds an enormous amount of capacity. That condition resembles cities on reclaimed land that continue to build while submerging or Frankenstein's monster.

    Potnia Theron [EX]
    Potnia Theron (Conception of All Animals).
    The authority of the goddesses whom BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.
    What it is is the embodiment of the power of creation possessed by the mother goddesses, originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük), and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Athena, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.
    Many are imaged with mural crowns. This is because many of the goddesses were also the guardian deities of cities.
                 ◆
    The symbols of this authority are the holes opening in the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), the whirlpools and typhoons of the sea, the craters of volcanos, and so on, and from these, evils bringing forth all manners of death are birthed.
    But once these evils have finished spreading death, they leave the promise of good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.
    The earth mother is a guardian deity revered by the people and their protector, and at the same time she is the sacrifice that feeds them with the crops born from her body and the beasts of the fields and the forests.
    The earth mother feeds man with her blood and flesh, kills man over time and absorbs him as nutrition, and once again feeds man with her replenished blood and flesh.
    This process is the circle of the food chain, and the cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants and posed a threat to the gods and man, or they gave birth to heroes and became protectors of man.
    Tiamat and Gaia are examples of those who became threats, and Hera is an example of a mother of heroes.
                 ◆
    Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the earth mother, as that would mean rebelling against the system of life itself.
    However, it is when they have left this earth to go into outer space and ended the infantile stage of intelligent lifeforms that they should no longer be bound to this authority..
    The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

    01 - 黄金の杯:[EX]
    BBが持つ黄金の杯。聖杯とも。
    持ち主の厚顔で自分勝手な願い事を叶える負の聖杯。

    ヨハネ黙示録にある、バビロンの大妖婦が持っていた杯。
    偽聖杯であるが、偽の聖杯であるからこそ、正邪問わずに人間の欲望を叶える“本物の”聖杯となっている。

    当時の清貧を美徳としたキリスト教徒にとって、金などという財の象徴で形作られた杯は、まさしく汚れた富と強欲、そして己を飾ろうとする虚偽を意味するものであった。

    ローマ帝国の化身であるバビロンの大妖婦が手にする杯という時点で明瞭であるが、この杯はキリストの「地に富を積んではならない」と言う言葉を反転させた、地上の富を象徴している。

                 ◆

    “わたしは、赤い獣にまたがっている一人の女を見た。
    この獣は、全身至るところ神を冒涜する数々の名で覆われており、七つの頭と十本の角があった。”

    これは黙示録曰く、聖都に現れた滅びの獣と、その獣にまたがっていた女の描写である。
    七つの頭を持つヒュドラの如き巨大な獣は海より現れ、聖都に上陸したという。
    この獣と女は二つで一つであり、切り離して考える事はできない。

    女はすべての邪悪を生み出すものとされ、短慮なる者、欲深き者は彼女の誘惑に逆らえず、その杯によって堕落したという。

    余談ではあるが、皇帝を名乗る赤いセイバーはその死後、信徒たちにこの獣と同一視され敵視されたという。

    02 - 自己改造:[EX]
    自身を改造するスキル。
    ムーンセルによって作られたAIには“機能を向上させてはならない”という絶対命令が備わっている。

    しかし、故障によりそのくびきから逃れたBBは自己機能の拡張を始めてしまった。
    計算能力を高めるためにNPC、AI、はてはサーヴァントまで黒いノイズで捕食・分解し、自らのメモリとして使用。

    自己崩壊をいとわない後付け増築だが、結果、BBは膨大な容量を持つ超級AIと化した。
    その有様は沈水しながらも建築を続ける埋め立て地の都市か、フランケンシュタインの怪物のようでもある。

    03 - 百獣母胎:[EX]
    百獣母胎(ポトニア・テローン)
    それはBBがムーンセルの深淵より編纂し、取り込んだ女神の権能である。

    約8000年前のすでに名の失われた女神(チャタル・ヒュユクの女神)より発し、 ティアマットやキュベレー、イシュタル、イナンナ、アナテ、アスタルテ、ガイア、ヘラ、アルテミス、アフロディーテ、デメテル、アテナなどに派生した、母なる女神の持つ万物を生み出す力の具現である。

    多くは城壁冠の形をとってイメージされる。
    これはこれらの女神の多くが、同時に都市の守護神でもあったからだ。

                 ◆

    大地や空に開いた門(洞窟や月)、海の渦潮や竜巻、火山の火口などに象徴され、そこからあらゆる死をもたらす害悪を生み出す。
    ただし、その害悪は死をまき散らした後、確かな豊穣や多産を約束するもの。
    この権能は死と同時に生を生み出す力に他ならない。

    大地母神は人々によって崇められ、それらを加護する守護神であると同時に、その身から生まれ出る穀物や作物、野や森の獣によって人々を養う犠牲そのものでもある。

    大地母神は自らの血肉によって人を養い、そして時を経ればその人を殺して自らの糧として己の血肉を回復し、またその回復した血肉で人を養う。

    この過程は食物連鎖の円環そのものでもあり、この生と死の循環こそが大地母神の本質と言っていい。
    ほとんどの女神はこの権能で、無数の怪物や巨人を生んで神々や人の脅威となり、あるいは英雄を生み、それから人々を守った。

                 ◆

    この大地に生まれたものは、母なる神の権能には逆らえない。それは生命のシステムそのものに反逆する事だからだ。
    しかし大地を離れ、宇宙を目指し、知性体としての幼年期を終えた時こそ、この権能が打ち破れる事だろう。

    Setting

    Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap
    Cursed Cutting Crater (Spirit Particle Imaginary Trap)
    The official name of this stage.
    The fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core established this “place”, formerly imaginary space for storing malicious information, as real space in the present, past, and future. It was reconstructed at her hands as a “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.
    BB attaining the power of the primordial goddess succeeded in quantifying the “nothingness” before the birth of life. She transformed into a master of imaginary space where time and space are indefinite.
    While the Moon Cell can’t be hacked however much time is spent, BB was able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time”.

    02 The remnants of peaceful days
    After the constraints to her free will were removed by Kiara, she was unable to control her status abnormality and went into overload.
    As NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored Sakura while she was crashing down as being “non-existent”, and since the mooncell only performs a check at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was within an inch of termination.
    (MC name) witnessing this called to her. Are you okay, he/she said.
    The observation of Sakura “being here” by a third party helped her recover her close to disappearing unconscious, and the subsequent nursing gave her a clear ego of “wanting to be here”. Her self-destruction was averted.
                 ◆
    What happened afterwards need not be said.
    When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the mooncell. Sakura wanting to continue this one day miracle used her higher class AI privilege to repeat the day she came to know the MC for 69 days.
    However as time passed, Sakura came to suffer from her self-contradiction as an AI and from the fact that she dragged (MC name) into this.
    “The Masters participating in the holy grail war will all die, barring one exception. No, even then (MC name)…..”
    Sakura continued to suffer from her desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for (MC name)
    The decision she chose ultimately was to seal the 69 days worth of memory, the love she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI.
    An AI cannot delete records.
    Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup machine to reset herself.
    Believing that to be the best choice for (MC name).
                 ◆
    But even if the memories in the mind are lost, the memories recorded by the body continue to live. Though she had forgotten everything and was back to being a normal AI, she was shaken by emotional values of unknown origin every time she talked with the MC.
    Meanwhile, the backup to which she moved her memory, couldn’t tolerate herself, and she decided her course of action and made her move as BB, the rebel plotting to destroy the system of the mooncell for a certain objective.
    The timing she took control of the far side of the moon was between the end of the fifth round and the beginning of the sixth in real time. Four Masters who were not defeated yet, (MC name), Leo, Rin, and Rani, and the irregular exception Jinako were kidnapped to the far side during the war while they were still alive.
    Matou Shinji, Gato, Julius were moved to imaginary space 0.00001 seconds before the firewall would have destroyed them after they were defeated, prolonging their flash of life.
    Regardless, CCC is a dream by BB.
    If the dreamer is no more, the world ought to return to a reality where nothing happened.
                 ◆
    By the way, the everyday scenery in the prologue that (MC name) saw in his nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled off the discarded 69 days.
    After pulling (MC name) to the near side, BB placed his digital body in the old school building, putting into a deep sleep and sealing him in a never ending dream.
    Normally, he would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strength of his bond with his Servant, or his own will rejecting the peaceful days caused cracks in the artificial garden and (MC name) came to notice something was not right.
    In order to place (MC name) into deep slumber once more, BB reset the school building and tried to redo the dream, but the (MC name) escaped the reset and leaped into a deeper part of imaginary space
    It was a depth deeper than the bottom of Id.
    “The death of the collective unconscious” beneath the unconscious.
    What saved (MC name) who leaped into a region even BB cannot affect was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with his.
    Thus, the contract was sealed, and (MC name) woke up in the old school building left in the far side.

    01 - 霊子虚構陥穽
    霊子 虚構 陥穽(カースド・カッティング・クレーター)

    この舞台の正式名称。
    悪性情報を貯蔵するだけの虚数空間だった“ここ”は、BBがムーンセル中枢に到達した事実をもって、現在・過去・未来において実数空間として成立。
    彼女の手によって、マスターたちでも存在できる“月の裏側”として再構築された。

                 ◆

    原初の女神の力を手に入れたBBは生命が生まれる前の『無』を数値化する事に成功。
    時間も空間もあやふやな虚数空間の使い手に変革した。

    どれほどの時間を要しようがハッキングできないムーンセルだが、BBは『無限の時間』の概念に自分を置く事で攻略した。

    02 - 日々の名残
    日々の名残:
    予選中、キアラの手によって自由性を解放された彼女はそのステータス異常を制御できずに過負荷を起こした。

    NPCたちはルーチンワークしかできないため、自壊しかけていた桜を“無い”ものとしてスルーし、予選ではムーンセルのチェックは一日の終わりにしか行われないため、桜は消滅の危機にあった。

    その異常を目の当たりにした岸波白野は彼女に呼びかける。大丈夫か、と。

    桜は“自分はここにいる”という他者からの観測を受けて消滅寸前だった無意識を持ち直し、その後の看病によって明確に“ここに在りたい”という自我を獲得。自己消滅から免れた。

                 ◆

    その後の事はもはや語るまでもない。
    翌日になればすべてムーンセルの手によって消されてしまう。この、たった一日の奇蹟を続けたがった桜は上級AIの特権を使用して
    “岸波白野と知り合った一日”を69日間、繰り返した。

    しかし日が進むにつれ桜はAIとしての自己矛盾と、岸波白野を取り巻くある事実に苦しむ事になる。

    “聖杯戦争に参加したマスターは、ひとりを除いてみな死亡する。いや、そもそも岸波白野は————”

    桜は幸せな時間を永遠にループしていたという我欲と、岸波白野への思いに苦しみ続けた。
    結論として、彼女は正常なAIに戻るため、69日に及ぶメモリー……獲得した“愛”を封印する道を選んだ。
    AIには記録を消す事はできない。
    そのため、バックアップの機体にメモリーを移動させる事で自らをリセットしたのだ。

    それが岸波白野にとって、もっとも正しい選択と信じて。

                 ◆

    だが精神の記憶は失っても、肉体が記録した思い出は生き続ける。
    すべてを忘れ正常なAIに戻ったはずの彼女は、岸波白野と話すたびに正体不明の感情値に揺れ動かされる事になる。

    一方、メモリーを移植されたバックアップはそんな自分を許せず、ある目的のためムーンセルのシステムを破壊する反逆者・BBとして自らの方針を定め、行動を開始した。

    彼女が月の裏側を掌握したタイミングは、現実時間で“聖杯戦争 五回戦終了~六回戦開始前”。
    まだ敗退していなかった岸波白野、レオ、凛、ラニの四名、そしてイレギュラーのジナコは聖杯戦争の途中、生きている状態で月の裏側に拉致された。


    間桐シンジ、ガトー、ユリウス、といったマスターは聖杯戦争で敗れた後、ファイヤーウォールによって消滅する“0.00001秒前”に虚数空間に移動させられ、一瞬の命を長らえていた。

    どちらにせよ、C.C.C.はBBが見ていた夢である。
    夢を見ていたものが消え去れば、世界はもとの、何事もなかった現実に戻るだろう。

                 ◆

    また、余談ではあるが岸波白野が悪夢として見た冒頭の日常風景は、捨てられた69日間をモデルにして作られた人工楽園である。
     
    BBは岸波白野を月の裏側に引きずりこんだ後、旧校舎にその電脳体を安置させ、深い眠りに落とし、覚めない夢の中に閉じこめた。

    通常ならループする日常の中で平和に過ごすのだが、サーヴァントとの強い繋がり、あるいは、安寧の日常を否定する岸波の意思によって人工楽園に綻びが生じ、岸波は異常に気がつくのだった。

    BBはもう一度岸波白野を深い眠りに落とすため、校舎をリセットして夢をやり直そうとしたが、岸波はそのリセットからも逃れ、虚数空間の更なる深部に飛びこんでしまう。

    そこはイドの底のさらに底。
    無意識の下にある、“集合無意識の死”である。
    BBでさえ手を出せない領域に飛びこんだ岸波白野を救ったのは、運命を共にするサーヴァントの声だった。

    かくして契約は交わされ、岸波白野は月の裏側に残された旧校舎で目を覚ます事になる。

    Overcount 1999
    A mysterious phrase, mentioned by Twice.
    Per a decisive depletion of resources, the era where began the decline of human.
    Its cause is unclear.
    The resources of the Earth, theoretically beyond the consumption of man, came to depletion; the capacity by which life could be sustained was from the World lost.
    Upon its Core -- what could be called its very soul -- did the Earth sustain damage; or so he stated, but...

  12. [v] MOONLIGHT/LOSTROOM material - Encyclopedia: Wiped Blank Earth [Other]

    Wiped Blank Earth [Other]
    The Earth after 2018, which Fujimaru Ritsuka had a glimpse of in the Lostroom.
    The Earth whose ground’s surface Texture has been pruned by the appearance of the Lostbelts.
    A “brand new shell of a planet” where the surface nature and traces of civilization have been lost. Where the pruned Texture (human history) has vanished to is unknown. The branches of the Trees of Emptiness that grew from the surface of the earth became a membrane that covered the Earth, creating a huge curtain at the boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere, the tropopause. Although electromagnetic waves can be transmitted, substances cannot pass through this tent and terrestrial humanity has been trapped. It is conjectured that the original human history will not be returned as long as the seven Lostbelts aren’t cut off.
    It became a lifeless planet apart from the Lostbelts, but there seems to be some rare areas, buildings and lives that were “left behind from the blanking” during the blanking process.
    The blanking was conducted on December 31, 2017. The invasion of Trees of Emptiness began from space, and seven Trees of Emptiness fell on the surface of the earth, creating seven Lostbelts. The land of true history disappeared, and the Lostbelts were protected by storm walls. Then, after some time lag, the surface of the earth was blanked all at once. The blanking is considered to have spread radially from each Lostbelt.

    白紙化地球【そのほか】
    ロストルームにて、藤丸立香が垣間見た二〇一八年以降の地球。
    異聞帯の出現によって地表のテクスチャーを削ぎ落とされた地球。
    地表の自然も、文明の跡も失われた『まっさらな惑星の殻』。削ぎ落とされたテクスチャー(人類史)が何処に消失したかは不明。地表から生えた空想樹の枝は地球を覆う膜となり、対流圏と成層圏の境界、対流圏界面に巨大な天幕を作ってしまった。電磁波は透過するものの、物質はこの天幕を越えられず地球人類は閉じ込められたカタチになっている。七つの異聞帯を切除しないかぎり、元の人類史には戻らないと推測されている。
    異聞帯以外では生命のない惑星となったが、白紙化の際、まれに『白紙化に取り残された』地域、建物、生命があるようだ。
    白紙化が行われたのは二〇一七年十二月三十一日。宇宙から空想樹の侵略が始まり、地表に七つの空想樹が落ち、七つの異聞帯が発生。正史であった土地は消失し、異聞帯は嵐の壁によって守られた。その後、若干のタイムラグの後、一斉に地球表面が白紙化された。白紙化は各異聞帯から放射線状に広がったものと考えられる。

  14. [v] Notes - Land of Steel [over count 1999]

    A planet that died. A globe that reached its end. A world where living things can't live.
    The name of the world in the present time. It's not its official name, but a nick name passed down between the people who live in the corrupted land. Like the name Land of Steel indicates, a large part of the continent are now wild lands that are torn apart, covered by a tainted gray colored cloud.
    Food can't be grown, and the atmosphere is no longer suited for the animals.
    To put it in a human species way, a drastic end of a century. But even after the mother planet died, the humans were able to live on with its developed civil technology.
    Even the planet's end where people once imagined, couldn't bring an end to mankind.

  15. [v] Notes - Grain [grain "Ether"]

    Space dust. Name given to all the harmful and unpredictable particles generated from the planet that lost its function. Although it is harmful to humans, sometimes it gives an unique effect to their body, and some call it Ether. The Hundred A-rays, Human Species, Knights, are all new species created by this Gin. The energy transfer rate of the Gin scattered in atmosphere is incredible, and it resulted in a new level of warfare that was never possible on this planet.
    With A-rays who can take in Gin into their body and Demonic Swords crystallized by Gin, all the weapons of the old age became useless.

    Sky covered by clouds. The thick layers of cloud hides the sky since the great war. It doesn't mean the sky is gray; they just can't see the sky.

  17. [v] Notes - The Sky, it's Red. [blood sky]

    The Sky in this world. Above the gray sea of clouds, there is not a blue, but a red sky.
    It's not because of a pollution, but from the blood of one of the Aristoteles that appeared near the end of the Great War, Type-Pluto.
    In order to not let Pluto enter the planet's atmosphere, the Six Sisters fought it and killed each other at the same time, and its blood covered the whole planet as a result. The gray cloud is said to be a shield that the Six Sisters placed.
    Within this red sky, the two Aristoteles that are prevented from entering the planet is floating like fishes that swim in the sea.

  18. [v] Notes - The Great War [Babel's Tale]

    After the death of the planet, there was a war between the survived human race and the Hundred A-rays.
    Mankind in order to survive, and the A-rays to rule the world.
    Under the Six-Sisters who united the unmassed A-rays, the human race were on the verge of defeat. Near the end of the war, mankind created the Knights and the Human Species, and it further killed the planet that's already dead.
    There was no victor to this war. It was interrupted by an intruder that suddenly appeared and nearly wiped out both sides.

    Q: The concept of Tsuki no Sango is the "degenerated what if scenario" of Tsukihime 3000, but is Tsuki no Sango a potential future of Tsukihime universe?

    A: Tsuki no Sango is a world where the event of Tsukihime did not occur. Different from EXTRA's "what if" scenario, the one of Tsuki no Sango is "a degenerated world where magecraft yet lingers". Tsuki no Sango has a Land of Steel type of world.
