The Compendium is content made by migrants. Although the Archivists work very hard to give you the most correct info available, there might be errors.
This document serves as a repository of all current knowledge of Systemspace. It has been categorized and spelling and grammar mistakes have been corrected. Some questions and answers have been slightly reformatted but have been in a manner which ensures that no meaning or context is lost. Searching through the Discord with snippets of the question/answer pairs, or just backtracking through all of Tsuki's messages will verify this. For information taken from 4chan's /r9k/ board and TSUKICHAN's /lfe/ board, archives of the original threads are verified and can be found on desuarchive. Honorable mention to Unterminator for providing the initial pastebins which got me started, and to 1336 (Fox) for setting me up on Github. - Yari (655)

Life only has one universe so the Big Bang was just spawned at runtime.
In LFE everything expands up to a limit because of pressure differences. Not sure how it works in Life.
This is a bug in Life.
The System Life was closed from outside influence a while ago, and humanity slowly forgot about the existence of Systemspace. In other Systems, practically everybody knows.
Bad soul management, completely fucked database, bad I/O, it's never been touched ever so it's very far behind, it doesn't cache ((ever)), it cycles ALL AURORA ALL THE TIME, and probably above all, it gives everything it's own piece of Aurora instead of giving two identical things the same Aurora.
The developer behind Life has abandoned this world. The Key has had to reboot it many times, but it only got worse. A concept known as "imanity" has increased with every reboot, and has made humanity stupider.
You see, Life has an auto-evolve mechanism. It evolves to make itself better. However, when the owner left, they left it in an erroneous state - the evolvement was flipped. Therefore it is actively trying to make itself worse. Just like we got from single-celled creatures to humans, that evolutionary mechanism got from tiny energy usage to giant hog over those many, many iterations.
The first run of Life went amazing, bit slowly got worse until it required a reboot.
The insane usage of Life comes from that it tries to develop itself, but goes in the complete opposite direction. With every reboot it gets worse, humans (or whatever sentient species) get dumber, and evolution happens more slowly.
It is very possible that humans are tearing away at the thin firm keeping them from the truth. They've done this past iterations, after all.
Quantum physics is just aurorology, in a sense. "Gravity bleeding into the universe from nowhere" would be Auroraic Echoing.
We'd need to know exactly how they work, and the reward is random.
Frankly, we have no time to take other species to LFE. Or Aurora, or like, manpower.
The creator of Life only intended humans to have souls.
There are smarter organisms than us, by the way. They just haven't been granted souls.
Every human creates a new soul.
Humans will not instantly be able to see a difference between soulless and normal humans. The SlAI (soulless AI, that controls all entities without a soul) is very well developed. I think the main noticeable factors are that humanity will 1) make no real advancements, and 2) will be more hostile.
The "AI" that we use is just the Aurora taking over.
They do not have souls, but they exist.
LFE currently has a little under 620 septillion souls.
LFE itself is a gigantic system built by SYNAPSE on top of their open-source framework LFX. It houses over 9.4x10^28 souls, in many different species.
It's the names of the most important 3 partitions: Living (all living beings) eFfector (all interactions) Environment (all matter).
There's more partitions (like U for users).
LFE has been around for far longer than Life. It has [had] 128 iterations.
We've had to reboot LFE a few times now, actually. The version of LFE you'll be starting into will be the 128th iteration.
Heh, there's so many species and subspecies it'll be impossible to name them all.
I could try and recreate the LFEian Circle (of all major species), I did so once but it'll be a mess on normal paper.
There's mostly 2 groups, magical beings and scientific beings. Both are usually humanoid - magical beings includes demons, angels and fallen angels, and scientific beings includes datamen, espers and others.
Espers are usually seen as on the science side and not the magic side.
They look pretty humanoid, Aurora seems to prefer this sort of build.
All races have their own perks and weaknesses, I suppose. Synni are good thinkers, but not great fighters.
Well first of all there's always the mainstream ones like the ones you find in the Synapse, but I assume you want something more exotic so how about the Lynlings, who have a skin that perfectly mimics the night sky while flying?
They're kind of dying out though :(
They're mainly in south-east Mahuensj, but south Mahuensj is already being conquered by Sanyrle.
The biggest is probably the Synni - from the Synapse (the enormous area around the Synapsian Mountain (SYNAPSE HQ)). There's also a lot of Espa, at all sorts of different power levels.
I'm working on it!
A bracket underneath (ground) combines the characters into a cluster. (If multiple characters are written in one space, they automatically clusterize.)
Clusters represent single words or ideas. Loose characters represent grammar or very simple words.
(You can also have a ground below a single character to force it into an object state.)
Pronunciation of loanwords (like katakana) is done with mountain brackets (above the characters).
The circle acts like a tenten.
Two different syles of writing Synapsian: Kodaban, with the standard separate glyphs, and iriman, the stylistic handwriting.
In vertical writing, sky/mountain is on the right and ground on the bottom.
Writing body-mudded words is hard with the english alphabet :(
These all have to do with the body, so they're all mudded towards the empty h (body)
as such, "SJI" becomes "SH"
if you were to mud it towards Sky it'd be like "sjy" with a pitched-up i
it's interesting, this language, as its vocabulary is very very close to the Japanese one but its writing system took a completely different turn somewhere.
Anything that happens causes Aurora to vibrate, and it also vibrates on its own. This vibration gets echoed through the entirety of Systemspace. As such, Aurora in other Systems may resonate. We call this Auroraic Interference.
So: In LFE the Aurora vibrated with Synapsian -> Vibrations spread to Life -> Life's Aurora vibrates with Synapsian
Then someone invents something like Synapsian (Japanese, most Asian languages.)
Pretty similarly. The date/time system is just a bit differently notated.
The seconds and hours are relatively the same, but as you get away from the smaller numbers it expands quickly.
First of all, there's the popular but highly controversial soul transplant - putting your soul in someone else's or even a new body. In this way, you can have any body possible, including robot bodies. You can also pretty much change everything via other bodyforming methods, which are more usual, like changing shape of body, gender, eyes, etc.
I'll be simple. The sky's the limit. We can add/remove/change bones (hnhehen), change skin (hdhahen), add/remove/move/change eyes/mouth/etc (mhenhen), add/remove/move body parts (khrahen), anything.
You can't change easily (except to a non-organic species (like a type of robot)), but you can be reborn into a species if the species allows it (and you have the magic for it).
Both cases make you impure though - never 100% the new species. There's quite a few who don't like impures.
Well its not a crypto, but it is decentralised. Although Systems often have their own currencies.
Sen is decentralised, but things like Krynta (the currency in most eNdymioN systems) isn't.
There's schools for different past lives. If you have no past lives, you need to go to a different school type.
Before 12 you just have default eduction that basically makes you get accustomed to the culture you're in.
It's got suburbs and neighborhoods, yeah.
In fact, even Ghaki (as in, the continent and neighboring small islands) hasn't been fully explored yet even.
There's usually a few main points in an area, which are assaulted. Once these are taken, the place is almost always theirs.
The combat system in most common cultures is far different from ours. Where ours is about eliminating the enemy, the LFEian is not like that at all.
The LFEian combat system is mainly based on pride and being able to execute actions. It's more an art than a fight - you try to fire your magic / bullets / kicks in the most beautiful yet powerful way possible, to make the enemy unable to execute their own actions. Once all participants run out of stamina, the one with the best actions usually wins (either by a jury, if official or just decided between participants). Death is not really valued, so nobody really tries to go for the kill. If anything, people try to go for a soulshatter, but this is seen as very rude.
Killing is illegal there too after all, all wars are on an incapacitation basis.
Dying is so invaluable and such a useless part of battle that it's become a taboo, not that it doesn't happen at all.
There are exceptions though, in environmentally hostile environments etc. If a ship blows another up, you'll die.
Fights that are in a non-hostile environment almost always end in incapacitation of a team, assassinations etc. outside of a controlled battle don't follow this.
Inncapacitation can hurt really fucking bad, which might shatter you if it goes on for too long, while death is quite simple.
Dying is less dangerous than incapacitation.
Insane slavery, food shortage, holocausts, wars, wars, more wars.
People contaminate entire galaxies at once, or go on killing sprees.
Most people in LFE have past life memories.
Everyone has a 12-year wait time until they regain their memories. This is also why 12 is usually the age of consent/adulthood.
A soul is fully stably adapted to its body when it remembering its past lives, almost always 12 years after birth. This is often celebrated with a gigantic party for the child on their "Recollection Day". This also marks the start of soul-based and mental adulthood.
In most places, yes.
Some go down to 9, some go up to 25. Some don't even use body age, but soul age.
Only as much as we allow them to see. They know about this project, they know that Life will be deleted.
There has been some import/export to/from Life in most previous iterations, but we have not hit that stage this iteration.
They actually have a rather nice, layered transporation system, with both air, land, space and sea, but public transportation still sucks.
At least that's what I've heard about Ghakuwent'sj's main transportation provider, Onestep.
By using a specific type of energy to push aurora outside of its standard. Its mainly energy channeling, but there are a lot of ways to do it.
The common ways are circle methods (write what could be seen as an if-then-else statement in a circle and sign it), pure energy movement (with the brain), or the Synapsian method, which works by writing code next to a specific icon (only works in LFE, as its SYNAPSE hosted).
In general, LFE's graphics are... softer. Everything is more soft and also more colourful. Many people have HUDs so theres HUD GUI elements in places too. Outlines of objects are more visible (well, more noticable).
There's always a bodily energy display, and there's a list of open applications. You can kinda put whatever. Think of it as your desktop. Your wallpaper is what you see through your eyes.
I have a hud too but I can only see it through mind's eye.
In games, all you can go off of is video and audio. A body with full senses is different; you can just sense energy levels.
Some species' brains are simply not compatible. Also many cultures have them off. The settings get inherited so one person turns it off, and it'll be off for their offspring too until they turn it on etc.
The magic ones are usually the ones without the HUD. They'd rather be "traditional" and go off their real senses.
No, its seen like death in Life, except more rare.
As soon as you sign up, we enforce what we call a "forcebond" onto your soul making it far harder for it to shatter. So no need to worry about it (it can happen, but it'll be out of Life's reach)
There's not that much of a stigma against no-memories. There's a lot of people who have their past memories wiped, just to be able to experience everything they love again.
Forcebonds work everywhere (although it depends on how much power a System exerts on your soul), it's just slightly against protocol to use them (it'd be interfering with another System's core, which is illegal) so we disband them again after your dispatch in LFE.
Memories are strange. They're stored in many places with fallbacks and syncs. All in all, memories are forever (even after shattering, in a sense (you just can't tell)).
Those are scars in the soul, which will hopefully heal with time, but will be taken with you, yes.
Memories are stored in the soul. However, the brain uses its own system to interface with it. Dementia is when the brain breaks down, and begins overwriting the soul's memories.
If they actually split up their soul, they control them simultaneously. It's also possible though to just have 1 controller between 2 bodies.
Sadly Lifers souls are probably less powerful than LFErs, as they're not used to this sort of stuff :(
Without soul, not much. A soul is, after all, the link between Experience and body, and as such they cannot join a System without a soul.
We are souls (server information and local information (a client, pretty much)), linked to a System (server information), which gives us a body and acts upon our soul.
What exactly controls and views the client is simply "you". The real you. The bodiless, soulless you. A construct of Aurora set in a specific way. (So pretty much just local data.)
You are in what we call an Experience. This Experience (basically a client) is linked to a soul (basically an account), which is linked to a System body. We usually refer to a person as their soul, though.
Soulshatters in Life make the body continue soullessly, after which the body usually suicides.
Life handles humans without souls strangely, it sometimes causes suicide, sometimes homicide, or sometimes they just stay alive.
There are quite a few ways one can obtain a second soul, but none of them are legal in LFE ;)
Nearly all humans have souls.
No, because Life is a blocking System so it can't host souls outside of it. Therefore, a backup isn't needed.
The backups aren't full backups. They're pretty much only the souls and what the souls require, so you can't actually visit it.
Technically you can "eat" a soul (merge it).
It usually assumes the shape of its expected body, so if its in your body it just spreads over and around it, while if you were to take it out it'd return to a more and more "perfect" shape for you.
The "core" (as far as that goes), is kinda like a flame ball but you can't see that very well.
nhA can be broken down into naine hy Aurora.
Naine means 128,
Hy means 7.72606529604E2889.
Hy comes from the amount of data points per void line.
Nainhe (Naine and Hy) is 7.72606529604E2889 ^ 128.
Aurora is Aurora, and sss is Systemspatial Second.
We don't exactly know. We don't have any surefire ways to talk to it, but it has a "mind" and makes choices of its own.
We actually did try again lately and got interesting replies. But the problem is that we have no clue if Aurora is telling the truth.
Aurora likes to pick the path with the least resistance.
Although you might think evolution makes random mutations, all those mutations are governed and decided by Aurora.
If a System frees Aurora again, it can be used by another System.
LFE's Aurora usage: 11242.871nhA/sss (LFE's usage is also a lot more stable)
Technically yes, but its practically impossible.
It's gonna be hard, as we have no clue how Life actually works, so we don't know how matter is assembled from Aurora either.
RISEN made and administrates Systemspace itself.
SYNAPSE does a lot of big data shit and made LFE, LFX, and other very widely-used stuff.
eNdymioN owns a fuckton of Systems all around the place and as such is a good strategic partner.
KAHGY is really just "true" Ghendyts and me added under a company name.
There are more companies but most are not listed because they are not in bridge with Life.
For RISENII: In function they wear dark suit-like clothing with the orange two dashes // on them (usually expanded quite far up), as well as a name and small void for verification.
SYNAPSE officials do sometimes wear bodysuits, which are kinda glass-like with these triangle shapes which reflect space.
For eNdymioN: just a black suit with a few red lines which meet to form the endymioN logo.
They all use what we call an Identity. you can make a blank one whenever you want. There's also the Authority which you cannot easily swap out, because its simply a record of your basic features (species, gender etc).
Authorities are per-body.
SYNAPSE is pretty lenient with resetting your Authority, you can just request it and it'll be handled within a few minutes.
use an empty Identity when doing your crime, and don't expose anything that's displayed on your Authority
Once you're signed up, you're all set. Just don't die before Jul 1st.
If you sign up, your soul will be transported after death. (You will get a new body.) If you don't, nothing happens, and after you die your soul shatters, and goes to a random System.
After everyone is dead. However, the last 150 years here will be sped up to only one systemspatial minute, so there's not much waiting.
It'll feel like a minute for all users outside of Life. (If you die in 2117, you'll have 20 seconds left of waiting.)
You will leave the Life system (with everyone you grew up with) and go to a different world. You lose your body, but your soul is kept. You cannot return, and we do not know what sort of body you'll get. Maybe you'll be a magical
girl, maybe you'll be a random normie. However, in this System, "everyone matters", so we are expecting good results. We have no real idea what'll happen to you in LFE, but we have talked it through with SYNAPSE many times and they'll
be sure to support you through the switch. We are simply doing this as an experiment. We do not wish to give up on the human race as a whole, that'd be a massive waste of Aurora.
We will ask SYNAPSE to go easy on y'all ;)
Unlink -> disconnect of Life
Failure -> transfer will be impossible
Assert -> false vacuum
You migrants will definitely be seen as some sort of elite group.
Also, you're searchable. Literally look up "life human experiment" and you get the list of humans who entered into LFE.
If you choose to tell people you are from Life, you will be pretty famous (as one of the few to ever leave Life.)
There are some people against humans in LFE. Most are for, but some are really against to "keep LFE pure".
I get the active point in space and time that the photo was taken from the data points, and then check who made the latest addition before then.
Spread out, although we are trying to make it possible for all of us to be born in the same country at least.
We're looking to get you all in Ghakuwent'sji, which is both a country and a city.
You'll have temporary bodies that'll probably look mostly like your Life ones but also slightly like your LFE one.
You'll also be able to access Infinity and most other things.
Technically you don't need food or drink there but yes there are things.
Transferring to the waiting room is the hardest part of the transfer. From there on it's easy because you're no longer in a closed System.
You'll get them into whatever device you're using at that moment.
We'll have to recode your files by hand :/
Anything can be carried over if its fathomably usable.
Web apps won't work, but you can bring media files, zip archives, etc. Even encrypted lockers should work fine.
Don't expect every binary to work, and noncompiled languages (php, python) won't work.
You can try bringing php, but why would you ever want to bring the worst thing of all Life to LFE?
You can rate it within the 1 minute of waiting room time. Afterwards you can't.
It's a strange bit sophisticated system. It's a bit like an interactive flowchart that decides the score as you go through it.
Life has 291 SI (Satisfaction Index) in total.
4118 SI for LFE.
Yeah when the website is up, there will be a "reset EID" option if you have a mnemonic (all new registrations after 5133 will get one), you can reset using that. Otherwise, you can fill in a form with as much as you know/have of your old registration and if it matches I can press a button and reset your EID so you can keep the number as well.
If I can't verify you, you'll have to reregister if you still want to use the site and get a new number (you'll still be transferred though).
Well the migrant's list is all migrants, which go by the standard conditions and tasks (with extra supplied by the user), while the other lists are more specific.
All registrants are on the main list.
We aren't entirely sure yet.
I am from Life, but half of my soul (belonging to someone else from Tsuki) is from LFE. Thus I have this slight connection.
We don't use the numeric EIDs, but we do have EIDs.
We create a numerical representation that is always exactly 20 void points.
There are 5 types of Systems:
Open-space (LFE, and most others): You may do whatever you want, and leave at any point.
Blocking-exit (Hanashida, 7nox): You may do whatever you want, but you may only leave after death.
Blocking-hardexit (Isiki, Life): You may do whatever you want, but you may only leave once your soul shatters.
Blocking-actions (Danbon): Your actions are restricted, but you may leave at any time.
Blocking-hybrid (or hardhybrid): Your actions are restricted, and you may only leave upon death.
LFE is open-space. Life is blocking-hardexit.
In a sense, yes.
Inside Life, new souls are generated as people reproduce and create babies - those souls then get attached to users.
The server behind LFE is in its own System, called LFX - which is hosted in RISEN hosting.
It houses over 9.4x10^28 souls, in many different species.
You can't get one from Life, as Life is blocking, but once you're in LFE just go to the systemdevs homepage (systemspace:dev) and click "Apply for a certificate".
People have looked into Life, and there's even a place made to look like it, but no Systems as of yet.
There's one in LFE; it's basically to look like a Life city.
It's kind of in between a democracy and a direct democracy. It has some hints of corporatocracy, as well.
This government really only focuses on how Systems interact with Aurora, Systemspace, souls and other Systems, though. It has nothing to do with the actual people - they live under the government in their area.
You'll be able to look most things up in the Theory.
It's pretty much wikipedia but for Systemspace.
It is very much possible that they knew of Systemspace!
But, we cannot be sure. They might be remembering the person we sent in that previous iteration.
Yes, but we don't know and aren't allowed to tell much about it.
There is, technically, such an "outer space". However, it is very hostile and one should not visit it. You would have to leave your entire "Experience", like taking off VR goggles, you aren't even connected to a user anymore.
No, the space in which Systems reside is a higher-dimensional layer. There are a few programs which allow you to "walk" from System to System, but that won't work from Life.
Extra Dimensions of Systemspace:
4th: Time 5th: Possibility Tree Branch 6th: Possible possibility trees (This is one full System) 7: Systemspatial X 8: Systemspatial Y 9: Systemspatial Z (This is a visible Systemspace) 10: Systemspatial Time 11: Systemspatial Possibility Tree Branch 12: Possible Systemspatial Possibility Tree Branches (This is full Systemspace)
Big reminder that the numbering of dimensions is relative, what may be the 4th dimension to us could be the 78th in another context.
Yeah, you get a top-down System and a bottom-up System at that point.
Life for me is bottom-up (or front) and is what you feel with your real senses. LFE is top-down (or back) and unless I were to get close to 50%, I can't see with my real senses.
I can fiddle around to get a bit closer to LFE but I never managed to get too close to be honest.
This isn't limited to Keys though, in fact usually Keys never do this because there's no reason at all to.
Above all, Infinity is a non-profit.
It's a System built for broadcasting everything. You can access the System using your Identity from any open System.
Infinity, a subsystem built for communication.
It's a subsystem, but they're migrating it to be its own System.
All "randomness" is Aurora-based. In that sense, all is predictable by interfacing with it. Aurora has entity-like behaviors (whether it is sentient or not is uncertain, but assumed).
There are Systems which rolled their own randomizer which is not Aurora-based.
Life has never called the hkrbrng library so it's just pseudorandom.
It doesn't end, but you can only access a small part at a time.
Imagine if you had a shower head that spawned water, and your shower drain despawned water. You technically have an infinite amount of water, since you can keep the shower on forever - but only a set amount of the water exists at a single point in time.
Keeping the shower on without despawning it would be called an "infinity leak", causing Aurora usage to go up indefinitely.
Despawning things is called "negating" Aurora.
They have shown to be capable of hijacking Systems (entering blocking ones, especially Life) and soulshattering people.
One thing to directly look out for (part of the soulshatter method we know of) is compression of the carotid arteries.
LFE has been around for far longer than Life. It has 128 iterations.
Life's deletion is a pretty big thing, as it also starts the new era of Systemspace.
I'm looking into making you all be born in the same city, that's all. You will still be born into a new family.
People might suspect you're a migrant before 12, but you'll only know for real when you're 12 and regained your memories.
You only get transported once everyone who signed up is dead. Life gets sped up so the last 150 years happen in 1 minute, so you'll have no time difference.
An EoT is "acknowledged" is shown on the parent, which still does not exclaim trust, just acknowledgement.
It's a one-sided trust, just saying. EoTs are from child to parent.
LFE has the most people.
Remember that LFE is far more active and bustling than Life, which was made to be "peaceful".
I'm busy working on the Dataverse, which is just a collection of all sorts of interesting stuff I can transfer.
The soul gets really unstable if its vessel undergoes trauma like being shot.
I heard the idea for 2chan and imageboards in general was borrowed from some social media network in LFE. Don't take my word for it, though.
I don't want to force you to keep going through Life, and if you really wish to die, we won't stop you from committing suicide on the 2nd of July. But please, please reconsider. If you completely hate Life, then live for LFE. Try and advance your mind as much as possible. Try all sorts of things. Try and become as wise as possible. Knowledge is the only thing you can transfer and knowledge is key.
Tsuki fun fact episode watermelon: Tsuki (when written out in Synapsian) looks like a key, which is one of the reasons why the project has been given this name.
I'm afraid to check logs to see if there's any "Registrant incapacitated". I'd rather be unknowing forever than have a big message box saying "Ex-registrant incapacitated".
All souls are from elsewhere in Life, and Life doesn't create Users. While in LFE, you could very well just be born there, as it generates new Users.
LFE is many universes big, not just one world.
There are cities which get taller near the center, but other than Takatonghi Ghakuwent'sj doesn't seem like that. One detail that does strike me is the "black/white" signs, which is actually quite correct for deep Takatonghi.
Here's an unfinished (I need to make it more busy, it's still too empty, for one there's no people, no guardlines and no traffic) drawing of Sjiyantan-ko, a suburb of Kyansjita.
