Something from over here that has motivated me to fire off a nice, big zap of NGE Geek objectivity / reality at the "Sexless Evas/SoLs" (and the even more incomprehensible "Male Adam") people. Until I have compiled the relevant In-Depth sections for FGC, this is the last ...

I'll try to finish up with the SoLs today, but, even before I do, keep in mind that the Evas are a "window to Adam". They've been changed, yeah, but you can guesstimate how much. EVA-01 is more or less made out to be the "default Eva", ergo, one can probably say fairly sa...

Oh, be quiet, you. IS there actually a counterpart-word for "phallus"? BTW, I was just fetching some screenies from #07, everyone's favorite episode. Aside from realizing that "berserker" IS actually the official translation for bousou , I was reminded of Tokita's inadver...

I'm not minded to rehash the discussion from a year back on the limited geometries available. Well, considering I said this... Remember the resemblance of most phalluses to what they supposedly represent. ...is this really a valid basis upon which to dismiss a potential "yoni" or two?...

I think there are people who get it, and people who don't (& won't)*. *Like Asuka, really, until her Mum blew the gaff. Well, I wasn't specifically asking here for that. More for feedback on the draft itself. And what is "gaff"? I speak you language not. Niceties o...

(3) Entry Plug as Womb The entry plug is a "womb" in and of itself, being a container -- filled with symbolic amniotic fluid, i.e., LCL -- that houses and protects a child. It is also nestled within the body of the mother figure, the Eva -- as long as the mother is safe, the child ...

I've started a draft for a preliminary "In Depth" page on the Sex issue. (I had a clever title for it, which I promptly forgot before I could write it down. Dammit.) I'm basically just going to lay out EVERYTHING that aligns Evas and SoLs with "feminine"/"fem...

I would reply to that, but I am succumbing to my sleeping drugz, so I would make absolutely no sense. Thus, I shall leave this to occupy you and run away beneath the sheets. http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/NBPP56GT3EUEAL568CAP04QPB-reichu_devil-herself.gif Originally posted on: 17-Jan-200...

Pilots can only synchronize with their mother's souls? Haven't quite worked out the details yet. But there is a special connection there that is hard to get otherwise -- yes. This is why nobody loves you. ...or do they? @Sharp: Thanks. I'll add that to FGC sometime. Originally posted on...

There are "bleeding" robots in MGS2, as well. Except those are a lot cooler-looking. (For the organically-biased, anyway.)

Well... Check out my "Biology of Souls" thread sometime. I'm going to revisit the synchronization crap one of these days just in case we've been babbling nonsense all this time. We have been babbling nonsense about an awful lot of things... @_@ Originally posted on: 17-Jan-2006, 04...

Why is it a she if it doesn't have a female's soul? Because Evas have o-va-ries. That doesn't neccessarily mean they put the soul of Touji's mom in the core. If you "prepare" a core for a specific pilot, that implies that you put somebody in there that (s)he can sy...

EVA-04 never got to the point where she would have gotten a soul, actually. Unless there is something critical that I missed. EVA-03 had the soul of Toji's mom. They talked about preparing a core for a certain eligible candidate, after all... I've started writing that rundown, BTW. But, like...

I refer to Zerogouki's "pregnancy" as such because that is what it resembles. The abdomen becomes swollen and very rounded, but the rest of the body maintains its normal size and shape. I think it's just too similar to be a coincidence. The ABDOMEN does not become swollen; it rema...

In that context, I think it is interesting to take a look at the scene in #23, with Rei II and Rei I/EVA-00/Armisael: I thought we had established that Rei 2 is talking with Armisael alone...? I just don't see how Rei 1/EVA-00 factors into the conversation, the usage of the deformed Rei 1 "...

Yeah, that's what I was thinking of. It's at least... tangentially connected to Yui. Not so much her as a character, but more to do with the "mother" motif in general. The mother/water motif, when you take it all together, is massive . Then, it is a theme that's just about as ...

It's probably just my brain being influenced by Evangelion Opus, but I tend to associate the water drop with Yui. I think I'm just confusing it with that blue rippley spirit thing that actually is associated with Yui. Actually, it doesn't seem to be. Regarding this thing: http://www.eva...
