There was an announcement some time ago (I forget exactly when) that “Permanent” bans were now going to be “Indefinite” bans. Bags isn’t the first “Permanently” banned individual to have been welcomed back to EGF.

I remember going through that image (on my crappy old dvd) using the advance frame by frame function and that a lot of the 'shapes' that you can make out in the cleaned up image aren't as solid as they appear, some being after effects of all the super imposed Reis.

The theory I came up with was that
i) all the other the other images showing things like Adam, Lilith, the Katsuragi expedition etc are distinct drawings or photographs and easy to identify
ii) the only indentifiable things in the image are the 'E.E' written on the diagonal band in the bottom right and the two rows of blurred text in the upper right Image
iii) the only other similar Reiquarium image to this one is another one identified as on the wiki as showing some scenery from NERV HQ - note especially the high contrast between shadows and what looks like concrete and writing- large numbers- on the wall Image
iv) the famous Reiquarium image is probably just some random Nerv background

Apologies as I can never get Imgur to work for me and post my own screenshots but there is something hidden in the Reiquarium images not on the wiki- it's not visible in the picture here (correction-you can barely make it out) but if you check it in the episode this image actually depicts Yui's contact experiment with Unit 01- directly above the exposed core you can make out a figure (standing on what looks like a small circle of light), just like is shown in
SPOILER: Show
the later scene in 3.0

It does, yeah. In general, these are some good observations Lacissal!

It could be but from the context of the order the Reiquarium images come in I'd argue it's Unit 01, as the images go

Adam being excavated- Giant of Light- Wings of Light- Second Impact blast from space
(newspapers/official cover up of Second Impact)
Lilith's mask - Unit 01 being grown from Lilith with the core clearly exposed like it was open heart surgery- then what I think is Yui's contact experiment

https://wiki.evageeks.org/Theory_and_Analysis:Dummy_Plug_Plant_Images

Another reason I think the mysterious image doesn't show Adam or Lilith is that it would be out of sequence from the other images depicting them (admittedly the second last from the Reiquarium shows Yui in her plugsuit but I'd argued that's tied more to Ritsuko's dialogue about the Rei clones)

For me, the image represents some site on the FARs homeworld or some inner structure/mecanism of the Black/White Moon that was not shown during the excavation of both Geofronts (those spacheships cannot be only massive rock...). The pyramidal structure is what most makes me think that it is not something made by humans.

Even a broken clock tells the right time twice a day. Until someone comes up with a far better explanation, I'm going to stick with it being some people overlooking a settlemet with some machinery in the middle and boats on the horizon. Not necessarily traditional clothing, might also just be the Antarctica expedition

Yes, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they didn't accidentally get the general theme right. It's probably not sail barges in the back, but the silhouettes in the front do bear some resemblance to humans looking down at some sort of area

Looking at this again today, the pale area in the upper left quadrant looks like a wall, or at least a closely aligned set of frontages, with vanishing point at the centreline of the picture just to the left of the dark rectangle (tower?) and some sort of spire (dark triangle) in front of the nearer edge. Another tower (dark) rising from the centre of the picture with an access bridge coming from it at about 5 o'clock, with the foreground figures on some sort of vantage point looking down on it all.

I don’t know how it would fit in with the rest of the image, but that thing in the upper right section of the picture looks like a highway sign to me. Like the kind that hangs over the road that tells you what the next exits are. Could it be possible that this is a city scene of some sort?

A half answer to your picture



After some looking around I noticed that there was part of a building in the bottom right corner with some kind of beacon clearly mounted on it. This means someone or something is standing on a building overlooking which I presume to be the remnants of Nerv. Before we look onto that on the bottom left there presumes to be some kind of figure. Take it as a grain of salt from me but I think it's some kind of paper someone is holding. Anyway as you can see in the middle there is some weird looking things but it's actually the crater and the giant cross Shinji made when he was going outside to help Asuka. This makes a lot of sense as the thing in the crater looks like the cross and when you look at the top of the picture you can make out some kind of opening. This leads me to why there is a giant pyramid thing. It's the pyramid thing from Nerv scrunched up from the crater.
