Here’s more of the World Establishment materials from the FFIX Ultimania, translated by curiousACfan. Major thanks to him for bringing this info to light!!!



The relationship between the moons and the radiance of the crystals

Two moons
When Terra’s attempt at Fusion with Gaia failed, they partially melded, but there remained parts which did not. From that day on, Gaia’s original blue moon and Terra’s red moon both orbited around Gaia (for more details on Fusion, refer to P.40, “Gaia and Terra”).


The crystals and the two moons
The color each moon radiates is the true radiance of its planet, received from the light of each crystal. The color of Gaia’s crystal is blue and the color of Terra’s crystal is red, and their own moon shines with their radiance. [See Figure 4]

Therefore, because Terra’s crystal is inferior to Gaia’s and the moons travel in constant ellipses, the nature of the moons’ waxing and waning is such that, as Gaia’s moon draws closer to being in front of Terra’s, portions of Terra’s moon on the other side are covered in shadow. [See Figure 5]

As the two moons go around in orbit like in [Figure 6], every sixteen days, the positions of the blue and the red switch, and the two moons are stacked one in front of the other.

Only Gaia’s radiance is strong enough to be seen when its moon is directly in the back, as seen in [Figure 7].

Terra’s moon: Becomes stacked in front of Gaia’s moon; more visible

Day 32

Gaia’s moon: Becomes stacked in front of Terra’s moon; more visible
Terra’s moon: Becomes stacked behind Gaia’s moon; more hidden

Day 48
Gaia’s moon: Becomes stacked behind Terra’s moon; more hidden
Terra’s moon: Becomes stacked in front of Gaia’s moon; more visible

The crystals and the Shimmering Island
The light of the Shimmering Island is the radiance of the crystals emanating from the dimensional interval where Gaia and Terra are joined together, and is the subject of religious faith for the inhabitants of Esto Gaza.

When the gate to enter or leave Terra is open, this radiance is at its greatest.

necron

Eternal Darkness [Necron]
Monster created by fear of death
A being awoken by the fear, despair and hatred of Kuja, who discovered, with the fulfillment of his ambition near, that he had little time left to live. It rejects the cycle of life through the crystal and attempts to return every world, including Terra and Gaia, to nothing. The final enemy to confront Zidane’s team.

(Caption on screenshot of battle against Necron)
Appears before Zidane and co. when — after waging a desperate struggle against Kuja — they were blown to the “Hill of Despair,” the world of a different dimension.
