I think Anno's attempt to make fans figure it out for themselves backfired, spectacularly; instead of 'trying to figure it out', people often told themselves what they wanted to hear.

> stare long enough at an ink blot, do you see "subtext"? Eva is not an ink blot. It doesn't matter what subtext you *invent*. Theoretically, Anno could flat out tell us what this was supposed to mean and I'd be happy; the only reason we're discussing it is because he didn't.
is like a puzzle, you know. Any person can see it and give his/her own
answer. In other words, we're offering viewers to think by themselves,
so that each person can imagine his/her own world. We will never offer
the answers, even in the theatrical version. As for many Evangelion
viewers, they may expect us to provide the 'all-about Eva' manuals, but
there is no such thing. Don't expect to get answers by someone. Don't
expect to be catered to all the time. We all have to find our own
