If you'll read my, admittedly quite long, post above, I did actually
discuss how the appearance of Rei in #01 is thematically significant and
how we need not rely on theories such as time travel to explain
anything. The important thing to note here is that the appearances of
all the "Rei 0's" are undoubtedly linked from a thematic standpoint, so
we may as well attempt to explain them in some internally consistent
fashion rather than leave them entirely unexplained and by extension
holding them to be meaningless.
