The adjacent-ish posts are probably relevant, too. I need to fix some of those broken images.
I am....openly surprised
to the point of disappointment that anyone would consider "flashing lights in Rei's medical scan" to be anything approaching solid evidence that she's made of "particle wave matter". It was just how the animators chose to show a medical scan, and we don't exactly have ones from other characters as a point of contrast.
was the lynchpin of the argument?
Pretty rainbow colors = PWM? When was that established?
I don't think it ever was "firmly established". More discussion appears to be needed.
A more sensible argument would be the "how does Rei 3 in EoE have her arm fall off only to regrow it" thing......but I don't think that proves "Particle Wave Matter" at all; in both human and Angel bodies, the cohesion of the body is a product of the AT Field (which is generated by the soul)
either way....were there OTHER reasons for thinking she's made of Particle Wave Matter, beyond the Pretty Rainbow Lights?

Also note this scene in the manga:
(Stage 71, p07-08)
"The matter comprising us is the same"
I only have raw versions of the manga. This may require detailed linguistic analysis for what the Japanese literal word for "matter" being used here is.
Further....Sadamoto isn't always right about everything.
Be that as it may, we've also got the basic comment "Eva-02 and I are composed of the same matter"
and I do generally consider that "whatever Kaworu is, Rei must also be, physically"
but I'm not sure if that's what was meant, I thought Kaworu could control Eva-02 because his AT Field/Soul is that of the powerful Adam.
