I finally collected thoughts I've been having for a while now about Rei and the souls inside EVA-01 and EVA-00.
Here's how it looks to me. Rei is Yui + Lilith (mostly Lilith.) EVA-01 is Yui + Lilith (mostly Yui.)
Lilith and Yui no longer have distinct souls. They were irreparably mixed together during Yui's contact experiment with Lilith's body.
Mixtures of these souls exist in various ratios within Rei 1 (within EVA-00,) Rei 2, and EVA-01.

It also contains a small theory about the third core of EVA-01 and why Eva-01 was able to initiate near-third impact all by itself in Rebuild.

Nice one
I mostly didnt knew Lilith and Adam was combined inside eva 01 in rebuild, that's insane

I thought most evas had souls of their pilot's mother (like Asuka's mom is inside eva 02 and so on for toji etc )
If it's mostly eva 01 only why bother having other pilots who lost their mother as well ?

The idea of adam being inside one of 01's cores is the most tenuous part of the image, but worth including anyway as food for thought.

I think all of the evas need the soul of someone compatible, although perhaps it's not necessarily that only the mother can be used, just that the mother happens to be the best choice in most cases.

I think the soul inside the eva unit needs only to want to protect the pilot with all their life. It's basically a way to domesticate the eva. I don't really understand why Rei 1 would want to protect Rei 2 though. Maybe this is the eva 00's performance is so bad.

That EVA-01 is made out of Lilith and Adam is not said. In Rebuild we don't know what EVA-01 is but in NGE it's made out of Lilith. With the souls we also only know that Yui is in EVA-01, the other EVAs we don't know it yet in Rebuild.

I think that in Rebuild, EVA-01 is one of the four Adams. That would explain how it triggered Third Impact and turned into a Giant of Light.
