|3043||The days of confusion continue. The organizations steal for their own benefit|
|3045||Jaza's prediction remains unfulfilled. Outbreak of a civil war due to racial discrimination.
Note: The prediction was [This tower will be annihilated on the 3045 year]. Jaza saw it in the descriptor manual of Sol Marta. In practice, when the construction of the tower ended, it was planned that it would cease its use and be destroyed, in a descriptor called [Tidying up]. The Grathnode Inferia caused the plans to be stopped, but it was determined that even if it was not in this year, Rhaki would destroy the tower anytime the conditions written in the descriptor were fulfilled.

Note: In these old days, the area of Metafalss was surrounded by mountains whose summits had at its tops 3000 Stons (9000m). Living in here was very different from living in the weather-controlled enviroment of the Second Tower, since not much people could live in these altitudes because of the weather and the atmospheric pressure. Still, there were many laborers harvesting ores, which helped a lot with the development of this area.
|3060||A Third Generation Reyvateil dies. It's thought that the cause of her death was a weak constitution.|
|3061||The rocket to Sol Marta is completed, and then lifts off. However, it's destroyed by Rhaki.|
|3062||The Grand Bell Hall is built on the summit of the tower, and a memorial service is held for the fallen ones.|
|3064||The Third Generation Reyvateils die one after other. During a while, the Reyvateils are forbid from having children, since they are thought the cause of the disease.
Note: This disease was called the [Tatoolist Disease] in El Elemia. It affects only the Third Generation Reyvateils, since they have both Reyvateil and human characteristics. This disease consumes the life span of the Reyvateils, making them unable to live beyond 18 years.

|3075||The concept for Infel Phira is created in Pastalia.
Note: At the time, the idea for Infel Phira was called [Create a Continent with our own power]. And so, Metafalss inherited the project they had in the First Era, and they marked as its purpose the creation of the [Metafalica Utopia].
|3080||The theory for the new target, Metafalica, is completed. However, Jaza doesn't release it to the public, given the number of sacrifices it would require.|
|3082||The Metafalica project is exposed, and the Pastalia radicals begin causing riots.|
|3086||Selena, obeying the lasts wishes of Jaza, becomes the new Pope, and in addition, the first Maiden.|

|3092||A new law for the perfect order is created in Pastalia.|
|3094||The Pastalia Environment Building Concept, both in the Hard Surface and Soft Surface, is enacted.
Note: The Hard Surface is the concrete town planning, and trying to harmonize the public works with the environment, while the Soft Surface is related to the limit of residences in Pastalia, and to the traffic going back and forth to the Rim.
|3097||The Inner Tower Department establishes the norms for the construction of a great water pump, and begins to work in its construction.|
|3099||The Water Mill is completed, and the surface of the Tower is used for the construction of many waterways and waterfalls.|
|3102||A delegation is sent in an expedition to Neo Elemia. Neath participates in it.|

|3177||A boy born from a β Reyvateil and a Human was used as intermediary, and via atavism, the Third Generation Reyvateil Ene is born.|
|3180||A new Pope is appointed.|
|3183||Establishment of the Reyvateil β ER (Early Reflection Art made by Transcripting a Origin) technique.
Note: When the Reyvateil is still young, a special Grathnode Crystal containing DNA seeds, called the [D Cellophane] is installed in her, allowing her to copy the abilities and Hymn Code of other Reyvateils. Mainly, the Pureblooded β Types and the Origins transcribed their abilities to the Third Generation ones, which original objective for this technique was to increase their powers, thus calling them [Transcribed Pureblooded β Types], and the plan was called β ER (from Early Reflection for Transcription, abbreviated as E.R.T.) from which, now only the name remains. Actually, thanks to the transcribing of the Origin Frelia, the Maiden has the same knowledge and skills as the Origin, and can convey that information during her life, but during the age of the game (the 3700 era) it's done in a semiformal way, since the person that will become the Maiden has to show the proof that she continues possessing the transcribed processes of the β ER. This technique began to be practiced on the 3040 period, but its theory it's clarified in here.
|3184||Ene is appointed as the new Maiden (first Third Generation Reyvateil appointed as a Maiden), at the age of 7 years.
Note: From here on, and until the 14th Priestess [Nenesha], the average life span for the Maidens was around 15 years. This was because the Diquility (Life Extending Agent) wasn't discovered until then, and the Third Generation Reyvateils had very limited life spans. Because of this, it was said that the [Maiden is like a flower]. The flowers bloom, and then, they wither away. For that reason, the Priestesses stirred a lot of festivals and ceremonies; they lived at the highest peak of luxury, and were the representations of the magnificence.
|3186||Announcement that the Maidens will be chosen from the townspeople from here on.|
|3187||Selena, the first Maiden and current Pope, dies. End of the Era of Long Peace.|
|3188||Beginning of the Ar tonelico Restoration Project, and Shurelia assumes the charge of Highest Advisor.||The radical faction becomes aware of Selena’s death, and begins to strengthen their pressure over Pastalia.|
|3190||Extinction of the β Reyvateils from Metafalss|
|3193||Maiden Ene dies. The 3rd Maiden is appointed at the age of 5 years.|
|3201||Death of the 3rd Maiden. The 4th Maiden is appointed at the age of 3 years.|
|3202||Shurelia makes an announcement to the β Reyvateils.|
|3205||Creation of the first Pureblooded β Type Reyvateil.|
|3208||For the first time, the radical faction reaches a position in the Grand Bell Management Board (still, this fact isn't announced to the public)|
|3210||The struggle for authority between the radical and conservative factions begins to escalate.|
|3211||Death of the 4th Maiden,. The 5th Maiden, called the "Bloodstained Maiden", is appointed at the age of 8 years.
Note: The appointment of the Maiden interfered with the interests of the radicals. For that reason, they decided to annihilate the child that was the candidate to Maiden. Because of that, from 4 years onwards from this point, the Grand Bell Agency in their despair decided to freeze and cancel the Infel Phira plan, and disclosed the New Testament of Metafalica.
|3215||Declaration of the Green Land. Begins the construction of the Metafalica Cathedral (current Lakra area).
Note: In this year, the organization of the radical faction announced the deciphering and publication of Jaza's Metafalica Theory. Within 5 years, humankind would leave this temporary land, and boasted that they would change their place of residence to their own continent. For that reason, the Metafalica Cathedral was built, and this announcement was made. The people were expectantly gazing at the Cathedral, and waiting for its completion.
|3217||The incident of Reyvateil abduction comes to light, obviously the abductments were because of Jaza's sealed theory.
Note: When it became known that there were Reyvateils abducted and sacrificed for the purpose of singing the Metafalica, the people's support disappeared. With the pressure of the people, the organization of the conservatives collapsed. The Metafalica Cathedral (located where currently it's the Lakra area) was never completed because of this. The Metafalica Cathedral and its Grand Ceremony Temple were based on Jaza’s hidden theory, and so, to make it similar to a place for the repose of souls, there was a statue of a goddess in there, and was supported by 33 pillars. The conservatives later regained their power, and then announced the sealing Jaza’s theory under the pretext that it sacrificed too many Reyvateils. Jaza’s theory was the last hope of the people, and when it crumbled, they fell in a lethargic state.
|3218||Death of the 5th Maiden. The 6th Maiden is appointed at the age of 4 years.|
|3219||The times become hard, and the people begin to search ways to heal their hearts and minds. The Dive Therapy begins to be practiced in the shadows.|
|3228||Death of the 6th Maiden. The 7th Maiden is appointed at the age of 4 years.|
|3238||Death of the 7th Maiden. The 8th Maiden is appointed at the age of 2 years.|
|3246||Death of the 8th Maiden. The 9th Maiden, Neal, is appointed at the age of 6 years.
Note: Neal was a very weak Reyvateil, one that would be called a [Class-D] Reyvateil under Tenba’s standard. And for the ER (Early Reflection) technique is hard to transcript for a weak Reyvateil.
|3249||The weakness of the Priestess's abilities begins to become a problem to the people.|
|3251||The fact that they are unable to visit Frelia only brings unhappiness to the people, and their dissatisfaction grows. The people begin to lose their temper, and feelings of suspicion begin to swell up in Pastalia's Grand Bell Hall.|
|3253||The aggressive propaganda of the radical faction begins to heat up everything|
|3254||The radical faction gets their rights in regards to the Metafalica Project restored. The 9th Maiden and the 4th Pope get overthrown. The 10th Maiden is appointed at the age of 7 years.|
|3255||Formation of the new Grand Bell Hall Agency. Proclamation of [We shall create magic and a continent by our own power]. Promise of a [New Power] to the people.|
|3258||The Grand Bell Hall Agency announces the restart of the [Infel Phira] project. They also announce that the project will be starting within 10 years.
Note: In that announcement, a promise was made to everyone that the project wouldn't involve any sacrifices. That statement was made because of the apparition of the Mad Scientist Grammul. He established the peculiar [Super Reyvateil Theory], and because he had some proof to his theory, he was hired by the Grand Bell Hall Agency.
|3259||Beginning of the disturbances in Pastalia and in the Rim.|
|3261||Death of the 10th Maiden. The 11th Maiden is appointed at the age of 4 years.|
|3263||End of the riots in the Pastalia Rim. The leader of the rebels is captured, and the security forces take positions in the Rim.|
|3264||Formation of the New Testament of the Metafalica Project, [Lakra]. 3rd time that the Infel Phira project starts.|
|3270||Repeated deaths occur because of the Dive Therapy.
Note: When the Dive Therapy is used, the minds of both the patient and the diver are exposed to a strong shock, which may end collapsing both minds. The Reyvateils have the obligation of training a lot before they start doing any kind of therapy, because doing it unprepared can lead to a dreadful death, both for her, and for the Diver.
|3271||Because of moral problems, the Dive Therapy is banned in Pastalia.|
|3274||Grammul proves that the implementation of Infel Phira is possible.|
|3275||Start of the works in the [Infel Phira] plan.|
|3276||Death of the 11th Maiden. The 12th Maiden is appointed at the age of 1 year.|
|3280||Shurelia advocates her position as the controller for the Reyvateil Control mechanism located in the Silver Horn.|
|3282||Death of the 12th Maiden. The 13th Maiden is appointed at the age of 3 years.|
|3283||Beginning of the works on the Infel Phira: First Stage
Note: This was created with the intention of having Reyvateils that didn't depend on the Tower of Ar tonelico. In this age, all the Reyvateils extracted by singing the power from the First Tower (the setting for Ar tonelico 1) to craft and perform their Song Magic. The Metafalica Project was made with the goal of being able to create an entire continent, and that continent was to be made via the Song Magic of the Reyvateils, but they couldn’t evaluate properly the powers of the First Tower. Therefore, they began to try and craft Reyvateils that had new methods for the crafting and use of Song Magic. Frelia's D Cellophane and the E.R.T. technique were essential for this project to be a success.
|3290||First Stage completed.|
|3291||First [I.P.D.] Reyvateil connected and transcribed to Infel Phira,
Note: The Reyvateils of this age received all their power from Elemia's First Tower (the setting for Ar tonelico 1). While the Metalfassians built the Second Tower, they also didn't mind taking the risk of separating from the control of the First Tower, given that the Second Tower was anyway planned to be erased. The announcement that was made when the Infel Phira: First Stage project started was this: [We shall switch over the Reyvateils to a system that we can control and administrate]. An I.P.D. (abbreviation for Infel Phira Dependency) is a [Reyvateil that doesn't depend on the First Tower (Ar tonelico) for the use of her powers]. Everyone had big hopes on this next generation of Reyvateils.
|3295||The 13th Maiden retires. The 14th Maiden (of Homura (Fuero)), [Nenesha], is appointed at the age of 3 years.|
|3298||The first Maiden of Mio (Aqua), the I.P.D., [Infel], is appointed at the age of 7 years.
Note: The first I.P.D. Maiden, [Infel], was named because of her connection to the system that was used to give powers to her. Infel was a very powerful and a very intelligent Reyvateil, and she was always a girl that was always thinking, and the people were amazed of her. She always spent her days reading from sun to sun and from moon to moon.
|3299||Announcement from the Grand Bell Hall that there will be 2 Priestesses, the Priestess of [Homura (Fuero)] and the Priestess of [Mio (Aqua)].|
|3300||Infel researches and discovers the essential principle for the creation of the Diquility (Life Extending Agent). The world is overwhelmed by this discovery.|
|3304||Infel begins an in-depth research of Grammul's Infel Phira theory.|
|3305||Grammul is fired. Infel replaces Grammul for the works on the Infel Phira: Second Stage project.|
|3306||Establishment of the [People of Aqua]. Unification of the Lakra administration. Both plans start at once.|
|3308||Begins the programming of a new Hymmnos dialect, the [New Testament of Pastalie].|
|3309||Beginning of the Infel Phira: Second Stage project.
Note: The Second Stage was the defining phase of the plan, since it was "the one that was to become our hometowns, the one that was to let us create the green continent [Metafalica]". And about the plan, the most essential parts of it were the β ER technique, the I.P.D.s and the 2 Maidens (Fuero and Aqua), but later on, all of these things were forgotten completely.
|3310||Completion of the Metafalica α.|
|3311||Creation of the Forest of Mikry.|
|3312||Completion of the Second Stage.|
|3313||Failure of the combined singing of the Metafalica. The War Against the Goddess breaks out. Nenesha dies.
Note: In this year, the first complete Metafalica was sung. However, because Infel didn't want anyone to see the inside of her mind, she closed her heart and lost access to her power supply. Therefore, Nenesha's power supply wasn't enough for the creation of a continent, and began to absorb power from Frelia to compensate it. Because of this, Rhaki thought that Nenesha was a threat and killed her. The world immediately declared the war to the Goddess, with Infel commanding everyone because of Nenesha's death.
|3314||During the war, Infel Phira is partially destroyed. Many IPDs die from the shock.|
|3315||Victory in the War Against Goddess. However, the people didn't want to go near the Grand Bell Hall.|
|3316||The Grand Bell Hall Agency makes a pact with the Goddess, pledging in secret to start working in the Ascension plan. Infel Phira is shut down.|
|3317||Infel disappears. In the Bell Tower Palace, Souffle is appointed as the 15th ER Maiden of Homura.|
|3319||Arrangement of the conditions of the pact between the Goddess and the people.
Note: Because of this, the Grand Bell Hall had to deal with many difficult problems. It was decided that Infel Phira was to be shut down, and then, do the purifying and clearing of the data of all the IPDs, but each of these things would have to be done one by one. But, actually, even if the Grand Bell agreed with these conditions set by the Goddess and begun with the execution of the plans, they did not think that these were anything more than their duties with Her.
|3320||In this year, the ratio of IPD Reyvateils in Pastalia increased dramatically.|
|3322||Around this time, the IPD disease began to manifest itself.|
|3328||Souffle comforts the people in the towns of the Rim, shocked from the poor conditions where they live.|
|3330||Souffle gives a little more of liveliness to the people, thanks to her popularity.|
|3334||The life on the Rim becomes much more comfortable, and a proposal is made for the construction of a railroad network in it. However, the proposal is refused.
Note: After the establishment of the Pastalia Environment Works Plan, the people from Pastalia and the Rim were not able to continue traveling from a place to the other. The people from Pastalia oppressed the inhabitants of the Rim. Therefore, the prospect of building a railroad network in it looked as a foolish idea, and everyone opposed to it.
|3337||Souffle gives birth to her second daughter, Raksha.|
|3341||The total Reyvateil population triplies.|
|3344||Because of the IPD outbreak, a great part of Pastalia's area is destroyed. Many of the knights sent to contain them die.|
|3345||Formation of a project focused in finding the cause and consequences of the IPD outbreaks.|
|3348||Humans begin to feel doubt and uneasiness toward Reyvateils.||Discovery of the use of Dive Therapy as a cure for the I.P.D. outbreaks.|
|3349||The Grand Bell Hall encourages the implementation of the Diver Therapy, and so, investigations on this are started.|
|3351||The 15th Maiden, Souffle, retires at 40 years. [Raksha] turns into the 16th Priestess.|
|3353||Raksha proposes again the creation of the railroad network for the Rim.|
|3355||The negotiations for the construction of the Rim Railroad Network are completed. Souffle and Raksha turn into the heroines for the people of the Rim.|
|3356||In one of the points where the Rim Railroad was being constructed (one of the storehouses for materials) a new city is built. Is named [Rakshek], owing its name to Raksha.|
|3357||The Metafalica believers depart from Rakshek and build the town of Mint Block.|
|3358||Inauguration of the Railroad Route [Rakshek - Enna]|
|3359||The Rim Railroad Network is named in honor to Raksha's mother, Souffle, at Raksha's request.
Note: The people thought to call the railroad network, [Raksha Axis]. However, Raksha decided that she wasn't so grand to deserve that, and proposed that the railroad network would be called the [Souffle Axis].
|3367||The railroad route [Mint Block - Rakshek] is opened in the Souffle Axis.|
|3369||Rakshek grows considerably, thanks to being turned into the capital of commerce.|
|3375||The Airport of Rakshek is finished. Pastalia rejects the commerce propositions.|
|3380||End of the repeating negotiations, authorization given by Pastalia at once for commerce. All of Raksha's supporters rejoice.
Note: For connecting Pastalia with the Rim, Raksha delayed her retirement for 4 years. She decided that she couldn't stop being the Maiden until the negotiations with Pastalia ended successfully.
|3381||The 16th Maiden, Raksha, retires at the age of 44 years. The 17th β ER turns into the next Priestess.|
|3390||Pureblooded β Type Reyvateils are selectively bred, then born.
Creation of a problem, birth of the Pureblooded β Type Reyvateil “Mir”.
|3394||The situation with the IPDs turns worse. The outbreaks become more frequent, and begin to be a real threat to the people.
Note: The IPDs wouldn't cease their outbreaks until the source of their powers, Infel Phira, was completely shut down.
|3402||The 17th Maiden retires at the age of 40 years. The 18th β ER, [Miasa], turns into the next Maiden at the age of 12 years.|
|3409||A Reyvateil uprising occurs in Neo Elemia.|

Thanks to the Purger Hymmnos, the Elemia Creatures are shut down. [The Maiden of the Battlefield, Illusha] did not spare anyone.
Note: Illusha turned the PURGER/. into a [Ancient Metafalss Tune], Hymmnos Fusion Song, and sang it successfully to temporarily shut down the mass produced digital life-forms (Creatures) made by the engineers of Elemia. Afterwards, she completely wiped out many of the Elemia camps, and was the cause of the death of many people, which drew much criticism to her. Still, they brought a lot of Creatures to this area for using them in the war, and they were left living here once the war ended. As the time passed on, the people began to have animosity against them, and lived afraid of these abnormal beings.

Note: After this, the IPDs began to be hunt and imprisoned in isolation. This incident leaved the people trembling. In regards to the IPDs, this was because of negligence, mostly because of the fact that the IPD Reyvateils were created with a rewritten Spectrum Gene that can be passed down from mother to children, which makes it an hereditary virus. But actually, the true cause of this was the Grand Bell's intentions of restoring Infel Phira.

Note: It was because of the influence of Shurelia's Suspend. Because of the lowering on the power output from the First Tower, Rhaki reduced to 50% the output power from Sol Marta for preservation purposes. Because of that, every part of the Second Tower began to collapse, and the frequency increased between each collapse.
