After 298 pages its still about Evangelion. Nice.

Can anyone repost all the important images/discussions that jumped up from Hikari?

Even I with no life, do not have time to read roughly 200 pages of off-topic ... whatever its called.

Thanks Redd; it is so gratifying to see someone who has finally grasped the sheer depth of Evangelion.

Firstly Tom, what a beautiful picture. I can really feel the surrealism trying to escape from this picture, yet it is so grounded in metaphorical realism. We have:

Misato + Penguin = ?

To motivate proceedings, we first consider a penguin on its own. This unique bird cannot fly and on land, its dumpy frame gives it an awkward motion. It appears clumsy, superficial, out of its depth and a freak disobeying the law of the jungle. Yet when it plunges the depths of the water, it is in its element. Serenely gliding through the blue world, it out-manoeuvres fish with consummate ease.

Consider the case of Misato Katsuragi. On the outside, as Anno points out, she is a superficial, hedonistic airhead; a contrived socialite with no cause and an outwardly vapid persona. That's right Misato. Wear all the make-up you want, wear all the mini-skirts you want, kiss all the 14-yr boys you can find, but you ain't fooling nobody (well, except her fanboys). You're a shallow, fragile mind with a freaking china-glass ego and an attitude to match.

Er, yeah, so first concentrate on the similarities: firstly, both the penguin and Misato are clumsy and superficial on "land", i.e. in the open air, on the outside (= conscious mind). The water is a symbol of the unconscious by virtue of the mysteries it contains in its depths and the notion of a dynamic entity. Many myths take water as symbolizing the primordial waters out of which the universe is created (e.g. see Babylonian mythology), which suggests water's predominanly non-conscious numinuous quality. However, we see that the penguin is supreme in water, while Misato runs away from her unconscious (symbolized by water) like a little girl - i.e. she is frightened of "water".

Oh. my. god. We have the answer. This picture is the WISH of Miss Katsuragi!! She WISHES to be a penguin, that is, to be in tune with the watery environment (her unconscious), the wish which was unfulfilled in the anime. Misato longs to be able to plunge the watery depths to find the key which unlocks her heart, and then to be able to rise up out of her own free will to validate her existence forever. She WISHES to be a penguin.

The diagram below makes this clear. Case closed.

I thought it was fanart that turned Misato into Pen-Pen?

So essentially she wishes to find peace with herself and her insecurities?

Is that before or after unlocking the Triforce and using it to revive Aerith?
