Or I'm very bad expressing myself in english or you all three didn't
understand what I was saying:

The first time I heard about patterning was yesterday. I heard other
theories about the same issue like the "Soul imprintation". But I never saw
the fundaments of the patterning issue.

Seems a little strange that all their hopes where that Kyouko had to die
until the Eva could work. If Kyouko had a contact experiment, and that
experiment led to 400% synch rate (as happened to Yui), and thus dissolved.
Why bring her back if they only needed her dead?

So because souls cannot be digitized they cannot be copied? Copy would mean
digitize a soul to then put on a vessel (be it body or core)? I don't think
that's positive. Copy means digitization?

I meant, that if Rei's DP only works with residents souls compatible with
Rei (Yui or Rei herself), then Kaworu's DP would only work with resident
souls compatible with Kaworu. The only one we know is Kaworu himself. Thus
all MP Evas would need Kaworus soul as resident for the DP to work.

But what a coincidence! The warped Rei Shinji sees, the one invading him
from Eva, is seen only again in recycled imagery, but its the only one of
those recyclings that's called "REi 1". Suspicious, huh?

The A^10 description dealt mainly with higher functions of the brain. And
then as a side note the sentimental part. Even if its about a sentimental
part... what kind of mother-child bond Rei has to synch with something? To
synch with Yui herself?

Nevertheless, Kaworu states the reasons he can control the Eva. Be it Gainax
error or not, its not for me to judge. I only use what I see on that scene:
he says why he can control the eva extraordinarily. And then I figure why
Rei couldn't do the same thing, and I see it fits.

Its not proven? Its proven by experience:
(and on this point: what is the only common thing between Rei and Yui? THEIR
So then I see synchro is not about mother-child stuff, because of the
motherless one. So I think: "What is common between these 3 pilots and the 3
resident souls? -> That they once had the same body!)
Its the only one that works on the Rei case, being taken there by all the
evidence that seems to show Rei-001 as the resident soul of Eva-00. It could
also work with Yui, but I have no indications that Yui is that Eva's
Its not a concept I made ante-ex. I saw, I tried to singularize what was
common between the pilots and the resident souls, and with that I came to
"The factor for synchro is that the pilots once where the same flesh as the
one the resident souls had". That must of course lead to some kind of
determination of personal patterns.

The factor would be more or less genetic. How synchro works not.

Ritsuko: As I expected, a smaller synchro-ratio than with Unit One.
See? Shinji did synchronize with Unit 00.

Where does it say so?

No reason to point out that Rei synchs with Yui? Episode 14 again:
Ritsuko:The synchro-ratio is almost the same as that with Unit Zero.
Maya: A similar personal pattern is shared between Unit Zero and Unit One.
Ritsuko: That is why synchronization is possible.
Maya: Error plus minus 0.03.
Harmonics are regular.
Ritsuko:No detectable problems in the compatibility between Rei and Unit
See? She synched with Yui.
"The SOUL is not FLESH!!!"
I never said it was. But because synch works when transmiting 'thought
patterns' determined by personal patterns, and after the experience of who
synchs with who, I gotta say that this personal patterns are in fact
determined by the flesh. Post-ex.
"Because I don't care to waste my time explaining an already debated theory

the point of making up assumptions and twisting things to support it. If
want to know about it, go research it yourself."
You where the one trying to discard my "pet theory". So please argue like a
gentleman and fundament why the pattern theory is better than what I'm
"Yeah, right -- even though it is clearly stated that the dummy plugs only
the brain patterns and that souls *cannot* be copied."
Wasn't it "the human mind and spirit are not digitalizable"
I don't see any "copy" there...
"Give us hard evidence (not assumptions or circular logic) from the series
or supporting materials for your theory"
That's what I've been asking of you. Instead of just disprove what I say
give me hard evidence! I'm giving you hard evidence about the synch factor.
"Otherwise, get used to being ignored as
debate becomes pointless since nothing can be said to change your mind"
I'm open to change my mind, but not without the proper evidence. Not
mentions to things I've never seen before. But, the ones who don't seem to
be open for mind changing is you, disregarding what I post, even with
evidence, as "pet theories", treating me like a capricious child.
"Rei's personality was transfered, although the human mind and spirit
are not digitalizable." is the key line. Ritsuko explicitly says that
Rei's *personality* is transferred, but they cannot digitize (or
otherwise copy) a spirt (= soul). "
Why everyone here thinks that digitizing is copying? I guess the point of
that Ritsuko's line is taht its impossible to put a soul into a machine,
because machines are digital, and souls cannot be digitized. But about
copy... I just don't see what digitization and copying has to do with each
But also think, what personality did they look for to put as DP for Unit 01?
Could it have been anybody? According to what I'm saying about synchro, only
Rei and Shinji could have been the personalities behind the DP. With that I
could affirm that Kaworu's DP would require a Kaworu compatible resident
soul, thus if every MP Eva use a Kaworu DP, each one would have to have a
Kaworu compatible resident soul, and the only one we get to know about is
