Now isn't that definition sufficiently vague as to allow a wide range of freedom in its interpretation? How does Annos ideas on the soul somehow violate the definition of what is a completely abstract idea that is based on nothing other then subjectivity? I'll tell you what: You give me eit...

It is in my mind, and the minds of others on this forum however, a valid excuse. I'm going to use your following quote and explanation to explain why it's a poor excuse. I think you missed my point. The human soul in Eva is a little red dot in the body. Where is the intellect and reason in ...

There are countless philosophers who all think different and conflicting things. So to guess which ones Anno is drawing on is a shot in the dark anyway. So because people disagree on some aspects of philosophy, we should throw out reasoned insight into the nature of the soul (which happens to b...

While it is admirable, in a way, to edify yourself regarding what the Great Thinkers have to say on the subject and all, you need to keep in mind that NGE is a work of fiction, in which Mr. Anno, in his capacity as creator of the world in which NGE takes place (which features stuff like LCL, A....

I am not denying that souls are on different playing ground than most of the physical stuff, but as your example shows a method of interaction between different fields, souls can be interfered, and in eva it seems to me that physical objects can interfere with souls directly through physical means....

But then, since the core houses the soul, could one assume that damage sustained to the core effects the soul indirectly? Just a passing thought really, but I always thought that once that soul was contained within the core it took on a sort of ''physical status'', thus liable for d...

There are different ideas about souls, and some believe that they are corperal things that cannot truly be affected(either destroyed or created) by physical means. However, in eva if souls could interfere with physical world in physical sense(supplying berserkers with raw energy), t...

... I agree with Reichu on this one. A good, for instance, especially in regards to the "cause-effect," is seen in Episode 1 when Yui moves her arm to defend Shinji-kun. She moves without power, without a pilot and without an entry plug. Clearly ... Yui is the force protecting her son. How...

I'm not aware of any evidence that Anno personally wrote it. It's the program booklet for the theatrical release of EoE, so I suppose its a product of the Publicity/Marketing Departments of GAINAX and whatever outfit released/distributed the movie, tho I would assume that it was submitted t...

If you've come here expecting people to automatically accept your ideas, you're not going to get too far. Ol' RahOtaku strolled onto the forum with rather grand aspirations of becoming "the next MDWigs", or some such thing, and all he really did as a result was irritate a lot ...

You have to be careful with all of this text-based stuff. There is a very thin line between "friendly sarcasm" and being perceived as some kind of Arschloch... I know from personal experience, since I've unwittingly managed to cross that line before!. I simply figured ... well, to be ...

Have you watched the episode recently? They are two completely different places. The room where Rei was born: http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/IHFF906HL8L2J7BQICQ7GOCUK-23_rei's-room.jpg In contrast to "the place where your mother disappeared". Apparently before this place becam...

Why are you calling it "my" concept? From what I understand, this is an idea fairly central to the NGE universe that most fans accept. Just because I do not feel adequately persuaded to throw it out the window is not due reason for you to start getting troll-ish about it. http://evageeks....

This insidious question just occurred to me... How can they reconstruct the body first, if an A.T. Field (ergo, the presence of a soul) is required for a human body to maintain integrity in the first place (those dratted clones nonewithstanding)? (Could this relate back to AA...

I'm running to class, so I haven't read the posts between here and my last, other than Shin-Seiki's response (I think it was him ...), so I apologize if the following question breaks from the converstation ... Who wrote the RCB? I hear that used as evidence a lot, and I know wher...

That may well be, but I have noticed that there is an interesting choice of words on the old procedural manual from ten years earlier that Ritsuko consults when she devises the plan to retreive Shinji in #20: http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/3GIGNFR1F9K7CN81HSK12RMUT-EP-20_Salvage.jpg ...

So basically Shinji and Asuka are the only two people on the planet who can imagine themselves in their own heart and they just happen to know eachother. Amazing coincidence, eh? ... Personally ... I prefer the TV ending so much more than the movie ending. Originally posted on: 21-Sep-2004, 00:59 G...
