In the last night I had a dream about Lain and I don't remember everything of the dream but, I remember that I was in my room, then the TV turns on and Lain appears on the screen, and she was talking to me. It was a wonderful dream, I wish I had never wake up.

that sounds like a nice dream. I had a really dumb dream, a friend stabbed me for a laugh and admittedly, it was pretty funny. a bunch of water leaked out of me. I wish i could dream about lain
>>
I would like to know what you guys ideas of the origin/nature of Lain are, this is probably a question asked a bajillion times in the past.

My interpretation of Lain is that she was some nonhuman protocol of the wired somehow taken and given physical human form by Eiri.

She has no memory initially of being a fostered child because she kept getting mindwiped but in an episode managed to memory check herself and remember when she first entered that home as a foster kid.

As she internally has that part that can process the wired, she is naturally a conduit for the wired and the real world and Eiri's experimentation with using Earth atmosphere to make a permanent medium to communicated with the wired everywhere (instead of needing cables) gives Lain the ability to be anywhere or see/experience anything anywhere.

I have no fucking idea anon. I didn't understand a bit of it. I guess I'm just2dumb because I don't see how anyone can make sense out of it.

My interpretation (based on the anime and not the game) is that she was a sort of virtual being created by tachibana industries to fix the wired by getting rid of Masami and protocol 7. Lain's dad is shown to be an engineer working alongside Masami back when he was human.
But see, you can take this a whole layer deeper and believe that Lain's dad is a physical form of God himself, who made lain as his successor to rule both the wired and reality.
This is one of the best parts about the show, everything can be interpreted in different layers.

I think those are both very good interpretations. Personally, I think that, as far as Lain goes, there is no God, since a large part of the anime is dedicated skepticism on the subject, namely what it is that defines God in the first place.
Although, my immediate thought after the last episode was that Lain's dad was god all along, and I do still consider that a possibility.

I personally like the idea that Lain's dad was god and this was a test for her so she would be prepared to replace him. I feel the "it was all in Lain's head/she imagined god" theory is just a tad too depressing. We all want Lain to have a happy ending after all.

Fellas,
I just started Lain a couple of days ago. What am I in for?
>>
>>2980067
You're in for the longhaul, that's for sure. Lain is one of those things that just kind of stays with you because of what it says/does and how it says/does it. If you're feeling confused, don't worry. Pay extra close attention and things should start coming together near the end.

How do you interperet the very last scene in the anime? Is she speaking to us, the viewer, directly or is she speaking to all the ones she cared and loved for? Or could it be both?

Another question is how do you treat the game in relation to the anime. Do you think the game takes place in a different reality or do you think it all connects together somehow?

I like to think it's both.

The show/game thing is a bit weird for me. I like to consider the show entirely separate, but I enjoy trying to connect the two.
I can't think of the game without the show but I can think of the show without the game if that makes sense.
