Re: "What measure is a non-human? ...Or a human? ...Or, uh..."

@Reichu: I didn't feel like you were ignoring me at all. :tongue: I enjoy the many breakdowns and insights you've put out in this crazy good franchise. And I too enjoy different perspectives. I'm always debating with myself on what I'm getting out of this show and enjoy that it allows for such vari...

Re: "What measure is a non-human? ...Or a human? ...Or, uh..."

Very very good points. Most of my line of thinking came from the the perspective of the series being a rather visceral depiction of a deeply depressed male otaku performing introspection when faced with rejection after rejection from there hearts desire and trying to Jungian individuate (combine wha...

Re: "What measure is a non-human? ...Or a human? ...Or, uh..."

I made a post about this a couple of days ago giving my speculation on it and I'd say is a mixture of psychological metaphor and interpreting human biology from metafictional perspective. If you look at what constitutes an angel or "messenger" in the religion Anno chose for aesthetics you ...

Re: A Song of Space and Time... and the Being caught between

More ordered thoughts. Brace yourself. We're going to the Beyond Deep and Deep Beyond: I can't say whether Anno et al is intentionally trying to mimic the dance between the Hebrew Torah and the Christian Gospel with Neon Genesis Evangelion and the New Theatrical Editions, but there is some juicy ima...

A Song of Space and Time... and the Being caught between

Something odd happened when rewatching Eva all the way through again. The infinity between two absolutes became a weirdly apparent motif. Well... along with all the interestingly sexual imagery. Black and White moon as forbidden gardens of testi and overh. The Children of Adam and Lilin as ova and s...

Re: "Above the starry firmament God judges, as we judged" Meaning?

Thanks for posting this as I wanted to double check what the phrase was and what I meant. I think in the context of Eva it's a clever nod to the fact that "God" - whether that be Adam or the FAR - are actually human by the broader definition used by the show. I think you're touching on an...

Re: Lilith and Adam parallel Cain and Abel

Awesome insights all around. After multiple viewings and some internal musings I also noticed NGE's interesting relationship to the Christian Trinity concept. I know it's been quoted that the creators used Abrahamic symbolism for purely aesthetic reasons, but whether it was intentional or not I thin...

Re: What is the inspiration/reasoning behind the Angel's design?

"A.T. Field" is just a term that was created for the show. There is an ancient rumor that it's a psychology term, but people have gone to great lengths to try to find a single piece of literature that mentions it, and all come up empty-handed. Ha. Fair enough. Add me to the pile on that o...

Re: What is the inspiration/reasoning behind the Angel's design?

I'm curious because some of the Angel's design is very different from eachother. I'm watching the series for the second time and don't remember some of them having such designs. I'm on episode 12 so far. The giant triangle cube, the spider with the acid eye, and then episode 12 is this abstract loo...

Re: 3 Aspects - woman, mother, and scientist in EOE

Another ting to add to that theory: "Eva" is the German name of Eve. You know, as in biblical Adam's wife Very true. I actually enjoy how they were able to use wordplay of the Greek word for gospel to also be used for the concepts behind the biblical character of Eve. Anno et al certainly...

Re: 3 Aspects - woman, mother, and scientist in EOE

That was my reading too, while trying to reconcile EoE with the TV ending -- where all the Instrumentality constructs of the post-human race waft off into the cosmos like stardust, leaving the two pilots in their own special damnation in Anti-Eden, the wilderness at the end of the world. I do like ...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

These are just partial explanations for (A) what causes Eva-01 to reactivate without external power and (B) why Rei is suddenly levitating and projecting an ATF. The actual problem of where the energy for these activities comes from is not being addressed. In NGE, this is normally addressed in some...

I don't see why not. The pilots are submersed in it, and I'm sure they've swallowed instead of breathed in on occasion.

Given that PWM is basically a metaphor for magic which itself represents imagination juice. I guess you have to ask yourself. Can you eat your own imagination and survive?

I keep discovering all kinds of things just trying to go through it all, it's really quite interesting and very entertaining. Can't agree more on this sentiment.
