>>so much of Eva's ending is the result of two men's desire to end the
>>world... what role did Yui play in the planing of this? <snip>
First, Gendo was *not* trying to end the world or bring about the
death/forced evolution of all humanity -- that was SEELE's aim. Gendo's
(more accurately Yui's) version of Instrumentality was different. It did
not involve indiscriminate death, and aimed primarily at reuniting the
two while at the same time thwarting SEELE's plans.
>>the only theory I have on the whole thing is that she DID know and
>>she and Gendou were working to put a monkey wrench into Seele's plans
>>UNTIL the incident with Unit 01
Yes, Yui did know, and yes, she and Gendou were working to put a monkey
wrench into Seele's plans. However, the incident with Unit 01 was not an
accident -- It was an important part of the monkey wrench.
>>even so, that brings up another question. <snip>
>>did she merge with Unit 01 on purpose? did she know what woudl happen
>>to her? did she know that it would give humanity a better weapon
>>against the angels for her soul to be with Unit 01?
Yes, she merged with Unit 01 on purpose, because it would give her more
direct (via Unit 01) and indirect (via Shinji as the pilot) control over
Instrumentality. She also merged to become an 'eternal testament to

>>to missjudge how much loosing her would affect Gendou
Yui's use of Gendo's love for her to make sure he carried out her plan
was just as intentional as Gendo's use of Naoko and Ritsuko Akagi's
love(?) for the same reason.
