I'm inclined to apologise for wording that that remark in such an unpleasant way at this time. but I will note that the previous paragraph of criticism remains basically my opinion, which I have taken the time to expand upon to at least some degree here in this thread. In which case, I am also ...

I still maintain that you misunderstood me in the other thread. As much as I'll admit to becoming hostile after your response, I take exception only to your dismissing anyone else's work as "pseudo-intellectual horseplay". I did not originally mean any offense when I said that you...

Now isn't this better than throwing cyber-**** at each other? I will try to respond if I get time, but no guarantees. But for now, I'd like to point out that you're not the first to dislike my Jungian analysis, quite the opposite. Most have completely dismissed it. Either they don't ...

Reply part 8 Most likely we are, it will become much more obvious when I translate my idea of subjective/objective opposition using terminology typical for continental philosophy to a Same/Other opposition. There, now it is much more clear (I hope) that I meant exactly what you described as...

Reply part 7 The more of this I read the more I think you haven't actually thought this through at all. Well, the more I read, the more I think you haven't thought through your criticisms properly e.g. you thought Asuka had an animus and an anima, which doesn't make any sense if youR...

Reply part 6 Thirdly, I've since spotted a mistake in my arguments in that the animus is represented by a masculine figure, so I have restated some of my propositions in Reply part 4. (earlier post), with some extra supporting text. I now think Yui's soul and Kyouko's soul repre...

Reply part 5 I've only read 'man in search of a soul' and 'on the nature of the psyche' by Jung along with what he wrote about UFOs, also with Reich's material on the side - which I suppose has some value to understanding Jung. I understand Jung did write something about UFO...

Reply part 4. Modification of Framework I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Animus rather than her anima" - the animus is just the same as the anima, except as manifested in a woman: ...... Furthermore, Jung sometimes doesn't even differentiate between anima and animus for man an...

Reply part 3. Len I believe this qualifies as a hyper over-analysis.. Hideaki made it on a whim, he wasn't a super genius, just incredibly random. Its a term which means you spend way much time on something which usually ends up being either incorrect of irrelevent. As I said, I invite people t...

Reply part 2. The similarities are indeed striking and give us something to think about. Still, I believe it would be much harder to defend this theory when we look at NGE from SEELE perspective. Why would SEELE want humanity to return of a state of pure libido? Furthermore according to SEELE the s...

Firstly, many thanks for taking time to reply everyone. Reply part 1. Tom Servo : Your post so far has raised issues which require me to do more thinking, so please post the rest of your thoughts and I'll try and reply in more detail in the future, maybe in parts. Aletheia : Well, I can?t really...

Part 2. Now why is Rei part of Shinji's anima - well we have Yui' s soul is Shinji's anima, but in this framework, this anima is incomplete. Rei is the missing part, and Rei resembles Yui and has the soul of Lilith (Red Cross Book - note that Jung also had a book called the "Red...

Part 1: The post was made on the spur of the moment, so I wrote most of it from the top of my head. Purpose of the post is just to put a flag on the ground showing that the relevance of Jung, and hence psychoanalysis, to Evangelion is not shallow. Given that I've written this on the fly, it isn&...

Given the wall of silence which met my rough ideas ( http://animenation.net/forums/showpo...&postcount=84 ), here is a new thread which reproduces them below, so that they won't get lost among other arguments. I'm slightly surprised by the silence since I would have thought this ...

Interesting... I don't really know what to make of it, but interesting. You've posted some nifty stuff on the Dirac Sea before (which I probably have saved to my HD somewhere or other), but do you have any thoughts on its link to the Super Solenoid specifically? (This comes up i...

Are people here seriously suggesting that Evangelion is somehow as significant as religious texts which have influenced thousands of years of human behavior and world history? A Japanese cartoon meant to generate advertising revenue for a TV station and licensing revenue for the animation studio? D...

Either way, whenever you finish writing your analysis of Evangelion using a Jungian framework, I'd be interested in reading it. Are you still interested in my theories? If so, and if anyone else is interested, I recently made a post at Animeboards here, which describes some of them very roughly...
