Ok, so I watched the series on "Anno's solipsism" on youtube, and from what I could tell, there was a heavy emphasis on the importance of the other in order to know yourself, that others perception of you are almost at the same importance as your own perception. It talked about ones ab...

Ok, let's just say I got caught up in the first line of the Wikipedia entry then... I mean, I get what you're saying, but it seems contradictory to what was presented in the series. Furthermore, I checked out one of the external links from wikipedia, and it more or less solidified my thought...

@Tab: Thanks for that post, I don't know too much about the different philosophies, but after looking up solipsism and reading what you wrote on how Anno is different in that respect, I can certainly see the connection between his way of thinking and how souls are handled in Evangelion. Although...

I would like to see this happen as well. If anything, for the translated scene descriptions and those bits in the dialogue added to the 5.1 audio channel.

@Merridian: What is the theme that's being echoed? @Nemz: If the Rei in ep01 was indeed the one from GNR, and it wouldn't be there if Rei didn't become GNR the way she did, then this "temporal causality loop" is certainly one of the better explanations for its occurrence. Howev...

Hi, just joined to say that since life on Earth in Evangelion was started by gigantic progenitor beings, I think it's pretty safe to say that the Christian God is not present in any meaningful way. You can speculate as to the origins of the First Ancestral Race and the universe if you want, but...

You two sure get sidetracked easily, the document I mean... I'd be wary of putting too much weight on the religious symbolism though, as certain things do override any that potentially exists, psychology for one, the actual characters for another. And although there is an enormous amount of dich...

Something Eva Yojimbo has taught me (yes, you just above me): although things from religion can be used to help interpret scenes from evangelion, particularly with respect to the symbolism, the interpretation that emerges should not be religious itself as that is not what evangelion was mean...

Lol, yes, it would seem it would be best if people just thought of these new characters as just that, new characters. Parallel world or not, bleeding in canon from the series is likely a bad idea as well.

Meh, it's not like you have to follow what i've written exactly. :P If anything, it's the thought process of eliminating the negative thoughts that is important. The method of course varies from person to person. Also, if your emotions are out of whack, maybe try some form of meditation.

Just a nitpick here: Gendo did not "create" Rei. Rei "salvaged" herself, and was subsequently copied physically by some unnamed team at gehirn/nerv. gehirn just helped with salvaging too many empty versions of her. And plotwise, there's very little going for the pills being r...

I must say, Komm, Süsser Tod is an amazing song. :D But yeah, go get some fresh air, ponder the situation until the negative feelings are subdued/replaced by more neutral ones, perhaps even positive ones. If you must cry, then cry, if you're there thinking too long, then take a nap, letting your...
