Don't read too much into everything. In FGC (evacommentary.org), the script says that water dripping -> ripple = symbolic beginning of the universe. Everything you see a drip-ripple just think of it as someone's emotional problems being resolved, for better or for worse. No, sorry it...

I was just joking about adding a whole new section. Besides, since eva technobabble sometimes takes up entire halves of episodes, it's not as if one has to reach far for examples. "Holy cow! Yui has obtained one...no, TWO! Two fruits! Yui has obtained two fruits!" Misato's standard...

Sidenote: there should be a evacommentary section devoted to Eva technobabble. Ten times the psychiatric applicability of treknobabble, none of the self-important "Oh yeah! why didn't I think of that!"

"Eva No Babble"

I think of it as playing columns for the game gear. If you make it a point to just barely _try_ to throw the same colors into one corner, eventually something will line up and cause small chain reactions of 'thing that make sense'. In the end there are as many religious symbolism that line u...

Ha! Hold off guys, this isn't the standard wandering jew thing... 1) that actually does really look like the jewish star 2) it's not keel, it's gendo. To counter: 3) It may be a coincidence of perspective 4) Maybe Anno is giving credit to the mythology that 'sold'...

One of the few valid observations that uses the word "Jew" in the context of NGE. Good catch. Symbolic explanations aside, I first posit that it's part of a visual effect caused by the perspective--notice that the window frames are both tilted in towards the center of the pic, as are t...

Shin-seiki: Awesome, all your manga scans completely confirms the quantum physics flavor in Eva. I'm convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt. I still have a question: What's the markings on the floor of Rei's birth-chamber? http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b...R/Tatig/RoG.jpg Zug's col...

I take it back. This picture

clears it up beyond a doubt. If this pic wasn't used before, I've love to hear where Shin Seiki might recognize the floor pattern from.

http://homepage.mac.com/csf2860/Quantum/Ep08.jpg Sorry to dig this up, but...what's really on his office floor? Is it really references to quantum mecahnics? I thought it had hints of wings, perhaps this: http://www.evageeks.org/op/OP_C001b_b_big.jpg or two sets of these joined head-to-head: ht...
