Re: An analysis I spent 3 years on: understanding Eva, or the gospel of a new century

Well, the contents are good, but there is a problem with editing (IMO). The rhythm is both fast and flat, which makes it kind of difficult to follow after a while. I think it would be nice if you slowed the pace down (consider pausing!), used less layers simultaneously and (I know this would be a lo...

Re: Mother is the First other: The Human Instrumentality Project and Lacanian Psychoanalysis

I did a little check and I was wrong too. Klein spaces are called after Oskar Klein, who was still another mathematician, less famous than Felix. It's a very common surname.

Re: Mother is the First other: The Human Instrumentality Project and Lacanian Psychoanalysis

I don't remember the exact quote you are talking about, but a "Klein space", or anyway a Kein geometry, has nothing to do with Melanie Klein. Felix Klein was one of the most important mathematicians of all times...

Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

IMO, Ritsuko understands the reasons behind her mother's death during episode 20, when she is studying the procedure of the salvage experiment, and particularly as she chews on the report of its failure (which I think was a fake hiding the creation of Rei from Naoko). At the end of that month we see...

Zugzwang vindicated

I'm bringing this back up because it resonates with the latest discussions about Rei. Fuyutsuki "made Rei" in the sense that he, unlike Gendo or others at Gehirn, was aware of Yui's plan all along. He was the "external hand" helping Yui to carry on her vision while trapped inside...

Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

Hello there H1111, I really like your theory, because including Naoko in the line of dialogue would make it far more interesting (since Magi play the most deciding role in the scene) than just referring to the two of them, as in "I need you". But there's one thing I don't understand. Maybe...

Re: Apostles?

Yes, Khara instructed all translators to be as literal as possible, but the Italian situation is unique. Gualtiero Cannarsi, who already adapted the old version of the series (the one everybody likes better) twenty years ago, in the meantime has developed a personal approach to adaptation and transl...

Re: Apostles?

Thank you for the explanation! It's the first time I read something this precise. PS: the adaptation wasn't pulled exclusively because of the Shito issue. Or because of the translation issue in general. The main problem, IMO, is the failed alchemy between the adapted translation and the dubbing perf...

Re: Evasophy - A to be 5 part evangelion analysis featuring philosophers such as Hegel, Stirner, Freud, Zivek and more

In my not-so-humble opinion, these videos are not interesting. The thinkers analized are well-known and their presentation is superficial, with the result of maximum boredom. It is apparent that there is no direct knowledge of the works of the authors but just of readings by others (see Zizek). More...

Re: Rei's soul(s)

So Rei II would be different from her iterations (more passive) because of the existence of the 00, keeping part (or all) of Lilith's soul?

Re: Lilith and Yui's Contact Experiment, and Related Subjects

Didn't mean that Unit 01 is Lilith's body; I was just saying that the giant in Terminal Dogma is Lilith with her original body. On the other hand, I'm almost sure that Rei 1's body is Yui's body recomposed. Then they cloned her. Regarding the issue of memory, I doubt that souls retain it: otherwise ...

Re: Lilith and Yui's Contact Experiment, and Related Subjects

The idea that Rei 1 retained Yui's memory, and that it got lost when she was strangled (unlike Lilith's soul, which was passed on) is very interesting. That would give to her death a whole other level of significance. This is "entering my head-canon", as they say (if no contradictions come...

Re: Yet another Contact Experiment

PS: I created this thread with one end, that is discussing the hypothesis of a Contact Experiment with Unit 00 before Naoko's death. The idea still seems to me simpler than what is actual consensus around this issue. The side-discussion about Destrudo came up along these lines but shouldn't take the...

Re: Yet another Contact Experiment

Sorry, maybe I articulated badly my point. The fact that Destrudo is a measurable variable was not meant to prove anything. I should have kept myself more synthetic. My reasoning there was that Destrudo acts from below the level of personality, and that I don't think that Rei has "more Destrudo...

Re: Yet another Contact Experiment

I have to admit that the soul fragmentation hypothesis is not to be excluded a priori, still I'm not sure it is a "simpler" assumption. In that case one must accept that Rei 1's soul was taken out of her after she died, that Rei 2 went through a Contact Experiment anyhow and that, at that ...

Yet another Contact Experiment

Here I'm proposing a theory about another Contact Experiment that might have happened between the original Salvage Operation (which probably resulted in Rei's creation) and Naoko's death. The idea is that that time the soul hosted by Rei 1 (Lilith's soul) was absorbed by Unit 00; then, and from then...

Re: Cruel Angel's Thesis - lyrics in instrumental section solved?

I found a version with far clearer singing in that section. The lyrics I posted earlier turned out to be off-base because of all the background singing overlays. The real lyrics seem to be more or less "Faria. Se ta mesmo. Faria. Oo-sei." Actually it is because of the overlaying chorus th...
