That made me chuckle, for some reason.
What is the fundamental thought process there again? If you're talking about how they stomp around destroying all opposition, then the Lilin definitely have that.
And I wouldn't say that we're good at changing that. We've come along through thousands of years and still can't alter the fundamental thought process. We have science, but a lot of the time we seem to only have science when it can one-up the other guy.
So if that's what you're referring to, I disagree. The Lilin have that very same thought process, but have some shiny new way of acting on it.
But I could be wrong, if I just didn't read into what you really meant.
Also, if you consider the definition of science, then the Angels have that too. Because science is simply the identification of phenomena, the investigation into it, and the theoretical explanation of it.
And under that definition, it could be said that the Angels' probing into the minds of the pilots is their own simple science. No, it's not as clean and systematic as our science and they aren't writing a thesis on it, but I could loosely label their actions as some sort of intentional investigation.
After all, Leliel wasn't using it as a weapon. It could be said that Arael and Armisael used their respective mindfucks as some sort of weapon (especially Arael, since it completely incapacitated Asuka), but Leliel already had her perfect defense. She didn't NEED to probe Shinji, but she did anyway. I saw that as a recognition of phenomena (in this case, a noticeable difference between Leliel's mind and Shinji's) and then a conscious investigation of it.
Does that not qualify as some kind of science?
I guess without a precise understanding of what the FoK is, it's hard to see the difference between Adam- and Lilith-based lifeforms beyond S2 and no-S2. And in that case, there's nothing wrong with a marriage of those two things, except that it's unnatural according to what the FAR intended.
