Subject: [EVA] Souls of EVA -- EVA 02
: Alrighty, here is a question, that kinda picks up where we were
: discussing the other day. The souls of the EVAs....
: So lets talk about this, Asuka's mother committed suicide.... yes or
: If she killed herself, then how could her soul be inside of 02? We
: shown images of Asuka's mother hanging herself, and what not, during
: Asuka's introspective moments, but did she really see it? or is it
: a metaphor.
: We know from conversations in the past, and I think from the RCB,
: Asuka's father was working on the S2 engine, in Germany, but don't
: really hear anything about whether he is still alive, or dead. Asuka
: does mention at one point, i think in episode 22, that she doesn't
: her momma, or her papa." Is he dead too?
: So what about it? Did NERV, or SEELE kill Asuka's mother for Unit
"Soul" is not as in a religous sense. Astral being, spirit or psyche
maybe. More hokum than anything else like Marvel's Doctor Strange (who
can separate physical from astral). Whatever was torn, ripped, sucked
or osmosised from Mrs Souryu - destroyed her sanity. Perhaps what she
saw or encountered psychically was responsible. Her mind IMO was more
fragile than Yui's (Asuka's is too) & was strong enough.
