pwhodges: When someone asks for an Watsonian explanation, don't give them the Doylist one instead, unless you're going for the whole "no fun allowed" thing.

I would assume limited time and resources. Another possibility is that the FAR determined that their souls being split seven ways was optimal for purposes of flexibility and colony establishment.

In this instance, any answer other than mine can be no more than fanfiction. We are not in the fanfiction forum, but in the Discussion forum, which I thought was meant to be about the actual material of the show and related stuff.

Afterwards... my post-Q Evangelion fanfic (discussion)

If someone is asking for speculation that basically amounts to fanfiction, that's their business, isn't it? If you feel the need to engage in "rumor control" regardless, it would come off better to say "we simply don't know" than give an answer that implicitly demeans a user's curiosity.

Were the FAR the first beings to possess sentience, or could others have existed?

They're the First Ancestral Race, so they're certainly the only prototypical sapients in NGE that "matter". Others are possible, since the universe is enormous, but they have no effect on the story whatsoever, so whether or not they exist is beyond the point unless you plan to write about them yourself.

Could other forms of humanity exist on worlds other than Earth?

Sure - why not? Indeed, it's to be hoped so, as the FAR sent out more seeds than just Adam and Lilith.

Didn't i hear somewhere that being human in Evangelion dosen't mean your a Homo Sapiens?
