SHINJI A (OFF):“Who's there?”
SHINJI B (OFF):“Shinji Ikari.”
SHINJI A (OFF):“That's me.”
SHINJI B (OFF):“I am you. People have another
self within themselves.
The self is always composed of two people.”
SHINJI A (OFF):“Two people?”
SHINJI B (OFF):“The self which is actually seen,
and the self observing that.
There are many entities called Shinji Ikari.
The other Shinji Ikari that exists in your mind.
The Shinji Ikari in Misato Katsuragi's mind,
the Shinji in Asuka Sohryu,
the Shinji in Rei Ayanami,
and the Shinji in Gendo Ikari.
All are different Shinji Ikaris,
but each of them is a true Shinji Ikari.
You are afraid of those Shinji Ikaris
in other people's minds.”
SHINJI A (OFF):“I'm afraid of other people hating me.”
SHINJI B (OFF):“You're afraid of being hurt.”
