Wow, when you think about it, either a large majority of the angels are (or
rather were ^_^) really stupid, Kaoru's definition of the angel goal was a
little bit broad, or a great deal of the angels have a very hard time
distinguishing Adam from other angels. Does NERV keep Adam in Geofront most
of the time? It would seem a lot smarter to have him/it/whatever seperated
most of the time from Lillith. Anyway, I'm thinking maybe when you shrink
Adam to a little bitty embryo he becomes harder to detect (at least in
relation to that other giant-Lillith). A lot of angels also seem to have a
penchant for eating each other. While I guess other angels may be
nutritiously sound and taste like chicken or something (although with the s2
I can't imagine that they need to eat), I was wondering if the angels aren't
simply eating every other angel thinking that eventually one of the angels
it eats has to be Adam (There are only 18 angels plus the various EVAs and
Lillith and Adam). What better way to combine with Adam than to simply
digest him ^_^? Would explain why the angels never attack at the same time
(they'd all eat each other and nobody would get Adam). Hmmm. I wonder if
the Angels are able to detect AT fields or something as a means of locating
other angels. That would definately lead to some confusion and with all
those little annoying Lillims (or whatever humanity is supposed to be)
they'd be getting really fuzzy reception (eerrk, static?). Not even Kaoru
(who I feel was the most intelligent) could distinguish Adam from Lillith
till he got really close (bet he felt stupid).
As a side note, does Kaoru simply assume that he can't get to Adam simply
because he messed up once? Wow, what a quitter.
Till next time,
