And it's connected to ATF collapse why? I didn't say it was (nor was anyone, near as I can tell...), but for what it's worth, it makes just as much sense for a bunch of little ATFs that hold a person together through mutual effort to collapse as it does for one big one. Maybe mo...

That whole scene is Asuka showing off as much as possible, which is why I suspect it. That and I guess it just seems that she never manages to do anything particularly intelligent to support the claim that she graduated at, what, 12? I don't necessarily think she's lying but more that she...

...or maybe for LCL-based life it's more like a collection of smaller individual fields around each cell that work in conjuction to maintain cohesion and general phsyical organization of parts based upon ego projection of the self-image. Perhaps 'more' field altogether, but each individu...

How competent is Asuka, really? (college & piloting)

Aside from her one comment to Shinji about being a college grad, is there any evidence in the show that this is actually the case?

I always thought she was just bullshitting him but several other sites seem to accept this statement as fact and run with it.

LCL and instrumentality: a 'humans only' club?

Humans obviously are LCL creatures, but what about other mammals? insects? plants? I wonder because trees are visible in the "Rei's head fall down go boom" pic that Mr. Tines is so fond of. Are plants Adam-based life, or did they just not get the invitation to instrumentality? Was Pen^...

Why does ATF strength have anything to do with keeping a bigger 'something' together? With all the quantum weirdness involved it doesn't seem that much of a stretch to say that the field that maintains an LCL lifeform naturally coincides with it's shape without regards to radiating o...

Songs, mostly. Something in the lyrics will seem vaguely eva-like and suddenly I'll find myself imagining some character singing it, either as a monologue or to another character. Most recently I was chilling with Pandora and found myself wondering why nobody has done an AMV for a particular Sav...

Can't we just stick a mirror in front of them and see what happens? For example, I would say that birds who attack their reflections aren't very self-aware. or they just aren't aware of what a reflection is and don't have the mental facilities to reason out this situation. The bird ...

Actually, I'm pretty sure they're not. Maybe some of the smarter animals are conscious, but for the most part, their actions are more stimulus-response and instinct and less self-preservation and awareness. Most human action can be described in exactly the same way, though we tend to wrap m...

Same thing happens with Rei's tears in ep23.

It's dissatisfying, by my bet is on willful ignorance of fluid dynamics on the part of the staff for the purposes of making animation easier.

Poor Maya-chan never should have accepted a position with NERV. She's far too human to advance within this hostile workplace environment.

EVA definately has the trinity concept going, but it constantly subverts it and offers too many possibilities for it to ever really gel into a definitive answer. For instance, Rei is a trinity all on her own in several completely different ways involving, Rei 1-3, yui, lilith, and both units 00 and ...
