Born from the Collective Unconscious, the power of Anima possesses the “failsafe function of the universe”. Whatever kind of thing is that? With regards to the collapse of the universe, what kind of situation does the Failsafe indicate?
(1) chaos, who is the Failsafe that exists for the sake of the safety of the entire universe; and Wilhelm, who exists for the sake of protecting the lower domain (DS-version)
<<What is a “Failsafe”?>>
When consciousnesses of rejection– those that desire dispersal– exceed critical mass, the imaginary number domain collapses, which causes the collapse of the real number domain and, as a result, leads to the collapse of the entire universe, swallowing up the upper domain. This is the universe’s desperate, dangerous situation.
When a breakdown or error is produced in one part of a system, a “failsafe” is the function that keeps the effect from spreading to the entire system. It is for the sake of ensuring safety.
In other words, it is thought that the Failsafe is the system that keeps a problem produced in one section of the universe from spreading its ill-effects to all the world.
If that’s the case, then it is thought that the function of the universe’s Failsafe is something for the sake of avoiding the collapse of the entire universe, including both upper and lower domains.

<<Function of the Failsafe>>
The fact that the consciousnesses of people refuse to unify with the Collective Unconscious even to the point of wishing for the dispersal of the Collective Unconscious itself, from the point of view of the entire universal system, is the abnormal situation that deviates from what should be the natural form. The correction or removal of this abnormal situation before the ill-effects are spread to the entire body of the universe is the function of the Failsafe.
Frankly speaking, the Failsafe is the function that eliminates the lower domain.
Before the whole universe is caused to collapse, it is just the lower domain that is eliminated in a way that won’t swallow up the upper domain. This can also be called the initialization of the lower domain.
The upper domain contains many lower domains. It is easy to understand when thought in this way: that parallel-world type lower domains exist. The collapse caused by the dispersal of the Collective Unconscious, due to its destructive damage, swallows up the upper domain as well. But the Failsafe by the power of Anima keeps damage such as that from occurring by eliminating only the one lower domain where the abnormality originated. Because of this, the upper domain will survive, and so also will other lower domains. In this way, the collapse of the whole universe can be averted.
The removal of one section in order to protect the entire system of the “universe”; that is the universe’s Failsafe.

<<Intention and Ability>>
It is chaos who possesses the function of the universe’s failsafe, but in no way does that mean he wants the lower domain to vanish like that. Still, it persists that the power of Anima that he possesses will end up activating it.
