Und ist der Kampf auch noch so schwer
Wir wanken, weichen nimmer mehr.

For posterity and in case things like reverse image search do not work, give due credit to those who create Rei's images by indicating author and/or source if known.

Discussion always welcome, but offer an image, if available.

No, I see no issue. Plus, it's a hark back to the old days of the Internet.

I think the only thing that would be undesirable would be highly artefacted JPEGs where the image quality is markedly degraded. There is a 4 MB limit per image on /c/, something I think should be raised, but that's the only actual limit, as far as I'm aware.

Of course. What fool wouldn't? That is my central thesis and ultimate hope in life. There are some lingering questions about whether individuality remains, whether there is any physical existence remaining, whether what we saw in EoE was a metaphorical representation or actual, etc., but these outstanding problems do not prevent me from supporting the institution of Instrumentality as a whole. Especially in opposition to the world as is today.

What mainly convinces me is not just the promise of happiness eternal, but also the honesty of Rei, and the imagery. Look at the clouds and the light's overwoven shimmer, the brightness of the sky, the overwhelming power. It cannot be anything other than the ancient Eschaton, ἔσχατον, the prophesized end of History. I tend to agree with the general old Greek view that Fate is unconquerable. But here it also seems desirable.

It's Death. The final solution to the "State of The World". "The End". As everyone dies so was everyone was "accepted" in Instrumentality.
A Death to the "Mortal Shell", but Life anew to the form that's not physical individually. For LCL is "One". A form given to be inherited by "All". A "Chance".

Indeed. Perhaps it is old Oblivion we saw. Obliteration of the individual. A new or the final step in the evolution of mankind (hence the name 'Artificial Evolution Institute'). The song I consider to be a metaphorical interplay between suicide of the sole person and suicide of the human race. It being upbeat and beautiful, inviting even, agrees with the commanding appearance of the rites of Instrumentality. Hence also why it is so appealing, in addition to but separate from the conclusion that death may be a preferential state compared to existence, at least of this type.

I agree. An interesting evolution of the problem of the first circle of Hell, of those righteous who nevertheless died before they could accept the truth about the Resurrection as retold in the New Testament. This seems to be more of a universal reconciliation option, and may support the view that human souls are naturally immortal, but I'm not sure.

The understanding comes with Rei. By knowing Rei we know the "Core" of EVA. Everything eventually synchronizes perfectly. It's just a question of time. How long will it take for "Us" to understand it completely? Time will tell.

Have any of you Reianons played "Ayanami Raising Project"? Personally, I haven't gotten to playing it because of the translation problem. Was wondering because it seems like a good game in terms of "getting to know Rei", even if it's in game format with it's own set of "improvements" for the sake of the game's storytelling.

I have not. I haven't found a way to play it, actually. From what I understand it's simply a reskinned version of some other raising game, so I'm not sure how much value there is to playing it. If there is, though, I should like to know.

I guess the only value in it is Rei. That's the only way it peaked my interest.
But, yes, you're right, the "True" Rei can only be found in the Original TV series and EoE movie. And of course, our heart.
I guess the appeal is that it follows somewhat the Original storyline too.
It always disgusts me when seeing the green "middle" section of EVA Unit 01. That way I know that the game or "side" media is not worth paying attention to. And nor is their version of "Rei".

NTA, but even I make this mistake if I'm not thinking about it. 'Pique' I've only ever used in that set phrase of 'pique one's interest', and given the related semantics of the intransitive 'peak' (rise to a high point) and 'pique' (excite), it's readily obvious why the two are confused. 'My interest was at its peak' versus 'It piqued my interest' aren't equivalent in meaning (the former being superlative really), but they both relate an elevation of interest.

I guess instrumentality in EVA can be perceived as a "Wedding" in a way. In a wedding a man and a woman are "United". Here Humanity Unites with Rei.
A more explicit and even grotesque version of a "Wedding" could be found in the game "Saya no Uta". Not really on the "Rei" topic, but to "understand" the "Wedding" concept.
Also her "GNR" form with the wings, it kind of resembles a wedding dress.
A Final wedding to end all weddings.

Please do call me out if some of my images are too "explicit" for a /c/ thread. I just go along with the "flow", Original Rei Ayanami had. She did get pretty naked in the show. I'll avoid breasts (unless GNR) and reproductive crevices though.

About time, Brother in Rei! Was getting a little lonely here. No matter how far we go, in Rei we shall unite once more!
And I can only see Brothers in Rei Ayanami!
