Sephiroth Posted February 15, 2002 Share Posted February 15, 2002 many times I have been asked what instrumentality is, and now, I shall answer once and for all, I expect no more questions on it, at least not for a long while! It basically ends the physical world, collapsing it into the nothingness of consciousness. The purpose of the instrumentality of mankind is complementation. This complementation is of a person's consciousness, turning it into everything. ----- Shinji: What feeling is this? That I feel like I have experienced before. My body seems like it's disappearing. Agreeable. I feel like I'm spreading, and becoming large, to here, there and everywhere. That was the very beginning of the complementation of the people by the instrumentality of man. the thing people lost. the lost minds. complimenting the vacuum in the mind. The complementation by the instrumentality of minds and soul begins. All things return to nothingness. The complementation by the instrumentality of man has just begun. ------ Removing the AT Fields would turn everyone into one, effectively neutralising them and turning them into "nothingness" so that Shinji becomes everything. Shinji thus becomes God in the sense that his consciousness is everywhere. Everything becomes his own world. --- Ryouji: This is what you wanted. Asuka: Destruction, Death, the return to nothingness, All of these did you wish for. Misato: This is reality. Shinji: What's reality? Rei: Your world. Makoto: With time, with space, with other people, a world of your own. Shigeru: The world where how to accept things and how to perceive things is absolutely up to you. Maya: It's your world, only given to you now, That is reality. Misato: Your world, which nobody else can deal with. --- Consciousness however is not something "in-itself". You can't just be conscious, you have to be cosncious of something. So consciousness is a nothingness in the sense that it only exists by being conscious of something else. Because in this world there is nothing except his consciousness, everything becomes "nothing", vague and undefined. There is only him and since he is completely free and exists everywhere, he can't figure out his own shape with nothing existing outside of him. --- Shinji: The world of freedom. Shinji: Freedom? Shinji: The world of freedom which will never be restrained by anybody. Shinji: Is this Freedom? Shinji: Yes. The world of freedom. Rei: As a result, there's nothing. --- Shinji: Ayanami... where are we? Rei: This is the sea of LCL... The primordial soup of life. A world without AT Fields... without your own shape. An ambiguous world where it is impossible to tell where you end and other people start. A fragile world where you exist everywhere, and thus exist nowhere. Shinji: Have I died? Rei: No, everything has just been joined into one. This is the world you have been hoping for... your world. --- Shinji: This is the world of nothing, space with nothing, the world of nothing. The world with nothing but me. I am understanding myself less. I feel as if I'm going to disappear. My existence is fading away. Why? Misato: Because there's nobody but you. Shinji: Nobody but me? there, if you still don't understand, tell me what it is you don't understand.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
