Extrahuman Imagination Dwarf Star Hourglass
Translaiton by Katie
Shadows are moving.
That power:
Transformation.
Darkness is returning.
That power:
Revolution.
The right way is solving humanity’s mysteries,
That rift ahead in the soul of existence,
Replying,
The Possibility
I
Alone
Can
attain.
The human realm, the earthly realm, the eternal realm.
The human realm, the earthly realm, never-ending.
The human realm, the earthly realm, oh, death and rebirth!
The human realm, the earthly realm, only repetition.
Virtual birth,
Virtual me,
Virtual relationships,
Virtual life,
Virtual earth:
Virtual planet.
Silence in spite of questioning:
Therefore,
Each and every
Thing unknowing,
Thing unknown.
Shadow-black dwarf star,
Dwarf star,
Shadow-black dwarf star,
Dwarf star,
Dwarf star,
Dwarf star,

The shadows move
Their power:
Transformation
The darkness returns
Its power:
Revolution
The one who is correct is the one who solves the riddle of people
The soul of the being that exists in this gap
Answer:
What is
The possibility
That only
I
Can go on?
O, human! O, earth! O, eternity!
O, human! O, earth! Endlessly
O, human! O, earth! Ah, death and rebirth
O, human! O, earth! Are simply things that repeat
Virtual birth
Virtual me
Virtual connection
Virtual life
Virtual earth
Virtual planet
Even if you ask a question, there is silence
Because of
All that is
Those who do not know
Those who are not known
A dark-colored dwarf star

Translation Notes From allegoriest:

Ryuugo
Ryuugo is written like a foreign name. I think there’s also a name that’s something like “our prosperity” but it’s written out like it’s not in Japanese.

The third section is weird. I think the last six lines are a conversation, the first three are the request and the last are the reply, but honestly, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Dark dwarf star
Ankokushokuwaisei is a darker than black dwarf star. kokushokuwaisei is the actual name for a Black Dwarf. A black dwarf is just a white dwarf that has theoretically lost its heat and light. However, black dwarfs do not exist because the universe isn’t old enough to contain one. Which means they’re all imaginary I guess. I assume a darker than black dwarf star would assumedly be completely dead and lacking heat and light, which is again, impossible because the everything isn’t old enough. Also the plural is dwarfs. Meanwhile in star land, the Sun is apparently a yellow dwarf. It in theory should swell to a red giant, collapse into a nebula with the core as a white dwarf and burn out into a black dwarf.

It’s worth nothing that recentlyish, Seazer DID revisit Shura -Corporal Constellation αψζ Nebula- which is apparently about a white dwarf, as it reaches the Chandrasekhar limit, which is the mass a white dwarf can reach before gravitational collapse, which seems to result in a supernova. Or I mean, it could collapse into a black hole I guess. Also obviously, Virtual is a star too. Like, that was the ending theme.


Translation Notes From Katie:

"Extra" (title)
“Extra” here represents a prefix meaning “outside of,” used for concepts like “extrasolar planet” (planet beyond our Sun). リュウゴ seems to be an alternative way of writing 輪鼓, but since it’s in katakana, it’s hard to be sure. 輪鼓 usually refers to hourglass drums, but it can also be used for other hourglass-shaped objects. The reason I ended up going with just “hourglass” is because I learned there is something called the Engraved Hourglass Nebula... no connection to this word in its kanji, but still. It’s a planetary nebula, and those are produced from white dwarf stars.

Replying,
隙間, or sukima, means crevice. Maeni, or 前に, means “ahead”. I think Seazer combined these words. 隙間にある can also be read as suki ainiaru, meaning “intervening”.

Shadow black dwarf star
Seazer combined the compound ankoku (暗黒), darkness, with the compound kokushokuwaisei (黒色矮星), black dwarf. A black dwarf star is what a white dwarf star is thought to come to in the end... thought to because there’s no evidence of one actually existing in the real world in the present or past, and apparently, the estimate for how long it would take for a black dwarf to form... is longer than the current estimate for the age of the universe, so it’s very likely they don’t exist... for now, from a linear-time perspective. Science is amazing.


Translation Notes From EJ:

Ningenkeigai/Extra-human
The suffix “-keigai” (系外) is used in compounds referring to astrological concepts that in English use “extra-” or “trans-” (such as extrasolar planet, extragalactic nebula, or trans-Neptunian object), so it’s “extra-human” in the sense of being beyond humans/far away from humans/not within the usual “orbit” of humans. I know it sounds a bit weird, but, well, transhuman already means something different, so extra-human it is.
