But we know that 400% means dissolving. Ritsuko seemed to knew it
beforehand. There was a salvage process for someone dissolved by the time of
Yui's accident. If we suppose she was dissolved, then is it incoherent to
say she was dissolved after a contact experiment wich led to 400% synch?
With that, she animated the core.
We know also that Kyouko also animated the core, and had a freak accident.
Isn't it reasonable, with the pieces we're handling now, to say she also had
a contact experiment, wich resulted in 400% synch and dissolution?

But we know that Eva-00 displays ATF, and because of that requires a soul.
So a soul must be in there, unless you're implying that Rei can do that ATF
for herself like on episode 24. Still, remember episode 23:
"Rei: No, If I escape, the AT field will disappear.
So, I won't."
If she can handle ATF's like Kaworu, then I guess the lines before are just
nonsense. Besides that angel in particular was held inside the core (as we
see on episode 23'), and guess what they say:
"Maya: AT Field Reversed.
Ritsuko: To hold the Angel?"
A soul in the core, ATF deployed by it, reversed to contain the angel in the
core. Works, right?
Besides, if there is no soul in Eva-00... then how could Shinji synch with
it? What was what contacted Shinji from inside the Eva? Voidness in the form
of Rei? And even in the form of REI 1?

But Ritsuko says
"Ritsuko:This is the prototype dummy plug.
Rei's personality was transfered,"
It has a transferred personality.

And how does Shinji to synch with something that cannot be piloted in the
standard way? And how does Rei to synch with something that can be piloted
in the standard way?

But Kaworu specifically says why he can do that. Kaworu displayed by that
time special abilities wich Rei only showed on episode 24. The conditions
said: Same body, no soul or shutting itself soul. Does Rei and Eva-00 comply
with that? And how does Shinji to synch with something like that, has he any
special abilities I'm not aware of?

But it said they where their own ATF's! What was imprecise about that?

Yep, but how about Rei synching with Yui? How about Shinji synching with
If its about the razor, then the best explanation is the one I'm proposing.
Just take a look at it again, and tell me honestly it doesn't make sense at
1) Shinji synchs with Yui
2)Asuka with Kyouko
(until now mother-child bond)
3)Rei with Yui
(no mother child bond)
The pattern is broken by case 3. But what is the common thing between all
these 3 cases? Because there is a common thing between them all:
The pilots once where the same flesh as the one possesed by the souls now in
Shinji was the same flesh as Yui. Same with Kyouko. Same with Rei and Yui
(its the only thing they have in common, positively, their bodies)
So, now there's a pattern for all the 3 cases. If this pattern is right,
then the soul in Eva-00, should be one that once had the same flesh as
Shinji and Rei. It can be either Yui or Rei. But from the cross-piloting
episode, and the references of something Rei like coming from inside the
Eva, I have to take that its' Rei inside that core.

I wasn't exact in my previous definition: A pilot whose flesh once was the
same as the one possese by the soul now in core.

And why does it trick the Eva into thinking there's a pilot?
"Ritsuko:This is the prototype dummy plug.
Rei's personality was transfered,
although the human mind and spirit are not digitalizable.
This is nothing but a fake, a copy
-> which imitates the pilot's thinking. It's nothing but a machine."
Imitates pilot's thinking, probably according to that transfered
personality. Imitating pilots thining transmits to Eva, and Eva reacts.

Perhaps the ink and paper can be cores or bodies.
One question for about the patterning: What use would have the salvage
process if Yui was needed to die?
