Sorry to be a stubborn broad, but I'm trying to find a way around inventing mystical organs if I can help it. http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/-wink.gif This may be one of those cases where, in retrospect, I think, "By gum, the bastard was probably right!" (I've done tha...

I'd considered the same idea, myself. However, there is the whole pesky matter of whether or not the Evas' cells actually require any sort of nutrition to maintain themselves... I.e., if the electricity stimulates the muscles to move, what is actually supporting the muscle cells? If you use...

Ok ... in regards to a semi-related matter ... Unit-01 eating Zeruel. Here's what I wanted to point out: [I've highlighted the key points with high-tech Paintbrush programming http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/rolleyes.gif ] Image "I" http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/KJC...

Why would the Evas automatically have an organ that processes the electricity from the umbilical cable? Keep in mind that in their original state, Evas are not meant to have things plugged into the back of them, nor have long cylindrical objects jammed into their thoracic cavities. They are both ar...

She eats an S^2, and is later spoken of as having her own S^2. Is there any need to complicate the matter by saying that she has some other organ that is never mentioned or alluded to anywhere in the show that is "upgraded" by means of the S^2? Who says it has to complicate anything. Some...

Considering all of this, it doesn't seem unreasonable to think that biomass could enter the core from Sho's body proper. It's sort of beyond me how she manages to reconstruct an S^2 after swallowing its bloody chunks, though. It's a somewhat different phenomenon from her ability to ...

Well, this is a really silly question, I expect, but the Core is a sealed unit, as far as I am aware. If Shogouki 'took into herself' the S^2 from Zeruel, by consuming it, how would it get into the core? I expect that to go down in forum history as the most boneheaded of questions, but it d...

Well now we're both in different waters ... It's true that some of the Angels don't have apparent cores ... (sorry, as big of a fan as I am, I haven't memorized the names yet, so I'm just going to butcher them with descriptions for now). The DNA strand (halo-type)...

Not really... You're basically introducing a concept that has absolutely no grounds in the series itself, which is perfectly legal when it comes to geeky theorization, except that we ARE looking for the simplest solution, i.e., the one in which we have to pull the least amount of stuff out of o...

I'm not quite sure I follow... Why is it important whether or not external power is "routed" through the core? The core itself is just an extremely versatile container; I wouldn't suspect it requires external energy to function the same way that body cells do, especially since the...

I didn't say the all the Evas had S^2's. What I'm suggesting is that in the Angels, that's the most likely place for such a vital "organ" as it's sometimes referred to, to be placed As for the Evas being attacked in the same location, it's possible to assume that th...

It's just logical progression to think that the most vital part of a being (the part that gives it power to live) would be placed in the most protective casing, that's all ... ie: the brain protected by the skull, heart and lungs by the rib cage, etc. Why else would destroying the co...

Well ... you didn't say it, Sharp, but Keisuke put it out there that the restored S^2 came from the 4th Angel's undamaged core. Undamaged? It got a prog knife in it and cracked rather badly. Would you rather I say nearly undamaged? If you recall, Ritsuko was amazed and glad regarding how mu...

Maybe I'm missing something, but if the negative words of the others directed at Misato ("Impure! Pathetic! Disgusting *****!") are not necessarily related to the #23 flashback, then WHY is the #23 scene referenced in this sequence at all?! If Ritsuko and the others aren't...

Extra-textual material (as cited below) aside, it still comes back to being a chunking issue - is there or is there not a logical punctutation between Shinji's rejection of Misato and all the others. We see enough other reasons for her most important colleagues to level such accusations...

So you're saying she really DID want to boink Pen^2? Well ... You can draw two conclusions: either she wanted to boink Pen^2 or she didn't want to boink Shinji. You can't have it both ways. "Why?" ... Because you just can't darn it http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/image...

I should mention that the part with Misato in the folding chair, going on about wanting to digrace herself, is not contiguous with the other part, which does unfold in the sequence shown (#23 flashback, Misato's expression of self-hatred, and Maya/Ritsuko/Asuka's reaction of disgust)...
