    Hide not Your face from me, lest I be like those who go down to the Pit. And the Διδαχή begins, “There are two ways, one of life and one of death, and there is a great difference between the two ways.” It's the physical act of turning away that nails the coffin shut; buy the lie that you've been forsaken and you nail your own.

Protagonists and antagonists alike not only have the conceit to be making their own eschatological decisions, but are basing them on Hideaki Anno's only conception of suffering:…
