Auldrant is a pretty interesting world in that it's probably the only non-science fiction planet to have actual details about its orbital period. We know from the information in Daath's library that a year on Auldrant is 765 days, which is twice as long than a year on Earth (365 days). However, there is a problem with this. In order for Auldrant's year to be that long, the planet would have to be much farther out from its star than Earth is from our Sun (assuming Auldrant shares the same distance of 1 AU[[note]]Astronomical Unit[[/note]]). By calculating and measuring the amount of time it would take Auldrant to complete one orbit, its determined distance would be about 1.87 AU, which would put Auldrant in between the orbit of Mars and the Asteroid Belt. At this distance, Auldrant would be far too cold to even sustain life, but that's assuming that the star it orbits around (Rem) is a G-type star like our Sun. If the star is a hotter and more luminous F-type instead (making its habitable zone more spread out at a farther distance), then it's entirely possible for Auldrant to remain habitable and still keep its long year.

** Supporting the hypothesis that Rem is a more energetic star than our own is that Auldrant is stated to be the system's second planet. A planet orbiting a G-type star at 1.87 AU would be expected to have at least two or three planets with inferior orbits, but increasing a star's energy output also inhibits the accretion of planets, so an F-type star would explain why Auldrant has only one inferior planet.

Or at least, something very much like nukes. In one of the group's visits to Peony's palace, Jade makes a throwaway comment about a fonic bomb, to which Peony responds with an uncharacteristic DudeNotFunny. Recall that fonons are Auldrant's versions of atoms, in that they make up everything. Thus, a fonic bomb would be Auldrant's analogue of an atomic bomb.

Jade seems to start to suggest to Dist once the Catalyst sidequest wraps up that it's possible that Luke would be the one to survive the Big Bang. While it could be chalked up to a desperate wish because he's actually friends with Luke and not Asch, but that's not how Jade works. He doesn't place value in false hopes or things that aren't possible. Jade also says that fomicry can't make isofons, way back before Akzeriuth. So therefore, it's entirely possible that the only reason Luke and Asch are perfect is isofons because Asch was (somehow) born with the exact same fonon frequency as the Seventh Fonon.

If you look at the part at Ortion Cavern and the contamination sidequest, you may recall that both Asch and Luke were doomed because of the Big Bang effect. This, combined with the deaths of the originals when Van was making all those replicas, suggests that something is taken from the originals to make replicas, meaning that both original and replica are somehow incomplete. Additionally, the title song, Karma, talks about the two becoming one [[http://www.animelyrics.com/game/talesoftheabyss/karma.htm (translation here)]]. Moreover, the person in the end who returns has characteristics of both Asch and Luke. Conclusion, Luke and Asch are re-merged into one person.
