Anyway, ran across this sequence while looking for other things:
Literal Translation Series Episode 25 wrote:Shinji: What's this?
Misato: This is the instrumentality of man project that your father
has been carrying out.
Shinji: Is this?
Misato: It's part of them, I think.
Asuka: The truth is yet unknown to us.
Ritsuko: The thing you perceive is the truth.
Rei: Things within you.
Fuyutsuki: And the things recorded in your memory will be your truth.
Ritsuko: There is a truth that changes through the time.
Shinji: This is the truth.
The result of everything, is this?
Asuka: Out of many truths, one is this.
Misato: That's the result you wished.
Shinji: I wished?
The destruction, the world, where nobody would be saved.
Shinji: NO. It's that nobody saved me.
Ritsuko: Nobody can save you.
Ryouji: This is what you wished.
Asuka: The destruction, the death, the return to nothingness,
All of these did you wish.
Misato: This is the reality.
Shinji: What's the reality?
Rei: Your world.
Makoto: With time, with space, with other people, the world of
Shigeru: The world where how to accept things and how to perceive things
are absolutely up to you.
Maya: It's your world only given to you at the moment,
That's the reality.
The full script is here, among other places. I hadn't noticed this before, but looking at it now this seems like a word-for-word depiction of the events of EoE. This is the world Shinji wished for? The destruction of the world? The return to nothingness? That gels perfectly with a scenario where Shinji is in control of everything, made the godhead by Lilith/Rei, but I can't really see how to make it work with an Instrumentality triggered as planned by Gendo, wherein Shinji is just one of many experiencing the same general thing. The bit about "The world where how to accept things and how to perceive things are absolutely up to you." fits with a more general interpretation of things, but the rest hews pretty closely to a concurrency arrangement IMO.
I know Concurrency threads have been done to death, but has this part of the script been addressed? I'm sure the answer to that is "yes", but finding it is the trick . . .
