How “Neon Genesis Evangelion” Reimagined Our Relationship to Machines

On Friday, Netflix will begin streaming the 1995 Japanese series “Neon Genesis Evangelion.” The event marks one of the biggest anime acquisitions in history. For years, “Evangelion,” which is known for its combination of science fiction, dense psychological themes, and religious imagery, was a kind of Holy Grail for anime fans, much admired but near-impossible to find. (Legally, that is.) Still, the reach and influence of the series can still be felt today, in the way that “Evangelion” revolutionized a genre and its depiction of the relationship between human and machine. The genre in question is “mecha,” which is also the name of its principal element: big robots. After the age of kaijū eiga, or big-monster movies, like “Godzilla,” in the nineteen-fifties, a cluster of robots hit the scene in the sixties and seventies, including “Mazinger Z” and “Mobile Suit Gundam,” one of Japan’s largest franchises and a seminal example of the genre. (The Gundam franchise, which celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year, now comprises more than thirty series and movies—and a life-size Gundam statue in Tokyo.) The eighties introduced mechas like “Voltron” and “The Transformers,” the former of which has been resurrected, by Netflix, as a popular animated series, and the latter of which has been beaten into cinematic submission by Michael Bay. Since “Evangelion” premièred, in the nineties, there have been several other popular mecha: “Gurren Lagann,” “The Vision of Escaflowne,” “The Iron Giant,” “Full Metal Panic!,” “Eureka 7,” “Pacific Rim,” and more. Though the genre has its tropes—war, kid-pilots, secret organizations, and, of course, rock-’em-sock-’em robots—it isn’t monolithic. In “Loving the Machine: The Art and Science of Japanese Robots,” Timothy N. Hornyak describes two subsets of mecha: the “super robot” show and the “real robot” show. The former, Hornyak writes, is more fantastical, with “machines of blockbusting might” that sometimes have mystical abilities. The latter, which was popularized by “Gundam,” features “giant robots that are realistic pieces of hardware . . . rather than superheroes.” The strangeness of “Evangelion”—what made it great—was that it drew from both camps while blurring the line between them. “Evangelion” is set in a post-apocalyptic earth, which is being attacked by powerful creatures called Angels. To defeat the Angels, scientists have created giant cyborgs called Evangelions, or EVAs, which can only be piloted by select children, one of whom is the protagonist, a lonely teen-age boy named Shinji. In the EVAs, real-robot weaponry meets super-robot mysticism. That’s the rub of “Evangelion”—the EVAs are not simply machines, but living beings. They’re manufactured clones of the Angels, who share ninety-nine per cent of their genetic material with humans, distinguishing them from super robots like the Transformers, which are sentient but alien by design. In many mecha shows, the metaphor of the human-machine relationship is clear: humans create weapons in their own image, as vehicles for a violence inherent to our species. There’s a fearsome uncanny valley at work, wherein the machines resemble humans but surpass them in their capacity for destruction. Such shows suggest that the farther humans walk on the path of advancement, the more dangerous their primitive urges become. “Evangelion,” however, takes the theme of dehumanization even deeper, explicitly rolling it into a larger existential psychology. In one episode, Shinji’s EVA runs out of battery mid-battle; it has its arm ripped off and shuts down. At Shinji’s pleading, the EVA powers back on and physically transforms; its arm regenerates, but the limb now looks human, like Shinji’s, and the EVA roars, runs on all fours like a beast, and rabidly tears its enemy apart. Initially, Shinji’s agency here is unclear: Has he incited this change? He’s unseen for the rest of the episode, but it seems that, in awakening his EVA, he unlocked a monstrous, destructive id synonymous with—or derived from—his own. In the following episode, we discover that Shinji was changed, too: he’s physically absorbed into the EVA and, after a month-long gestation, experiences a kind of rebirth. The EVAs are oddly maternal figures: their adolescent pilots sit in a chamber of a kind of amniotic fluid, and their nervous systems are linked to the EVAs so that their bodies, like fetuses, are fuelled or depleted as the EVAs are. This attachment runs deep: throughout the series, the pilots struggle to define themselves inside and outside their EVAs. The teen pilots experience mental breakdowns and wonder who they are and what they value. Dehumanization, then, is not so simple a concept in “Evangelion.” The show introduces a brilliant chicken-and-egg conundrum: Do humans define machines, or do machines define us? The final episodes of “Evangelion” notoriously depart from the action to take a dive into Shinji’s mind. Instead of a big blowout, we get rounds of existential queries from a boy who’s scared and alone. Shinji’s fear of his EVA’s destructive power and autonomy is rooted in his fear of himself, his capabilities, and his human urges, especially as he loses the purity of his youth. Here, “Evangelion” uses its genre’s tropes to illuminate one of the most daunting parts of the human experience: growing up. In many mechas, even if young pilots are tainted, in a sense, by the violence of war, their innocence may still absolve them. The youths in “Evangelion,” however, aren’t so protected, because their increasing proximity to adulthood estranges them from their chastity. In fact, the show has a series of Freudian themes tied to the pilots’ budding sexuality. (In one episode, Shinji imagines the women he knows naked, seducing him; in others, two female pilots are penetrated by Angels in the form of phallic beams of light.) Like another, more recent mecha, “Darling in the Franxx,” a clear descendent of “Evangelion,” in which adolescent boy-girl pairs (suggestively called “stamens” and “pistils”) pilot the mechas in an indiscreet meeting of human sexuality and technology, “Evangelion” conflates the process of human maturation with militaristic advancement. The boy may wield a gun, but the man is the one who shoots. Many mecha movies and series have imagined a communion of the human and the machine. “Evangelion” was perhaps the first to imagine the human as machine, and vice versa. The EVAs are both primal antecessors and evolved descendants of humans; occasionally, the two beings are one and the same. What the show introduced to the genre—and to a generation—was the Mary Shelley touch: the horror of not just the monster, who is created by the union of life and science, but the creature’s resemblance, in all of its grotesqueness, to the creator, absorbing him to become something new—something limitless, and more frightening than before.

White, Rural Middle Age Males Committing Suicide

America is facing a suicide crisis.
A new survey on mortality and life expectancy in the United States, released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found that 47,000 Americans took their own lives in 2017—2,000 more than recorded in 2016. The national suicide rate has increased 33 percent between 1999 and 2017, according to the CDC's National Vital Statistics System data. What's worse, a broader Associated Press analysis of government records indicates that American suicides are now at their highest point in 50 years. It's now the second-leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 35.
And the rate of suicides has only accelerated in recent years. According to the CDC, suicide rates among both men and women increased around 1 percent a year between 1999 and 2006; between 2006 and 2017, however, rates jumped to a 2 percent annual increase. The suicide crisis isn't evenly distributed, though: CDC research indicates that the suicide rate jumped more dramatically in rural areas (13.1 per 100,000 in 1999, vs. 20 per 100,000 in 2017) compared to urban metros (9.6 per 100,000 in 1999, vs. 11.1 per 100,000 in 2017).
That finding gels, broadly speaking, with a growing body of research that indicates it's primarily white, rural Americans who are killing themselves. In 2015, a Proceedings of the Natural Sciences (PNAS) study indicated that middle-aged, white Americans were dying at a greater rate than ever before. Even as mortality rates declined in almost every major developed nation (with the exception of Russia), they rose steadily for the U.S., thanks to the uptick in suicides:
Screen Shot 2018-12-03 at 4.12.43 PM
The following year, a National Center for Health Statistics study indicated that the rising suicide rate was particularly pronounced among middle-aged Americans between the ages of 45 and 64. More specifically, the suicide rates for middle-aged men rose 43 percent, while the suicide rate for women grew by a staggering 64 percent.
White, middle-aged, and primarily rural: Together, these three studies appear to uncover the contours of the so-called "death of despair" that PNAS authors Angus Deaton and Anne Case describe in their research back in 2015.
Suicide has been considered a disturbing indicator of underlying social problems ever since Émile Durkheim's seminal 1897 book, Suicide. Applied here, might the rise in suicide among white Americans signal anxieties tied to the issues of the economy and demography?
It's a persuasive argument (especially given the 2016 presidential election), but it doesn't fully explain why Americans kill themselves at a higher rate than those in other advanced countries, plenty of which experienced the same global economic turmoil of the Great Recession.
To that end, it's important to look not just at why people kill themselves, but also how they do it. As Pacific Standard reported back in 2014, most suicides "are 'impulsive'—a gun to the head, a jump from a bridge—and were there not, say, loaded firearms around or bridges without suicide guards, tens of thousands of lives could be saved."
But that last figure might not be as relevant anymore. Yes, the 2016 NCHS data indicated that, between 1999 and 2014, guns and poisoning were at play in the majority of American suicides, likely attributable to the also-increasing rate of opioid overdoses and the ubiquity of firearms. But, according to the CDC data, guns and poisoning both declined as the preferred methods of suicide among men and women. For women, suffocation (which here means hanging) jumped from 16.3 percent between 1999 and 2006, to 26.2 percent between 2006 and 2017; for men, there was a jump from 19.1 percent to 26.8 percent during those same time periods.
db241_fig4
This indicates a changing character of American suicide. As the relative social and economic pressures on white, middle-aged, rural Americans have gone up, so has the acceptability of suicide. Once considered a dark cloud over society, suicide—in whatever form is takes—is becoming more commonplace in America.

Sega Partnering with Google on Next-Gen Console

Rumors were swirling that Google is determined to enter the console video video game market with no longer just a streaming service, however its very personal hardware as well. We’ve already observed patents for a Google video game console controller, and the tech huge is anticipated to properly unveil the task on the 2019 Game Developers Conference on March 18. And if a new rumor is to be believed, the Google console’s expected unveiling at GDC will come with the declaration of an immense partnership with Sega to supply video games for the device and streaming service.
This rumor appears to stem from YouTube channel Spawn Wave, hosted by Jonathan Downey, who did not supply any resources for wherein he obtained this suggestions. So enthusiasts need to take those claims with a massive grain of salt, even though the prospect of Sega returning to the console market will no doubt get some gamers excited at the possibilities.
Right now, there’s now not a whole lot in the way of new Sega video games announced for latest consoles, that is one reason this rumor is slightly easier to agree with than it might be differently. At the time of this writing, Sega has no leading collection Sonic the Hedgehog games announced for PC, PS4, Switch, or Xbox One, and only a handful of alternative titles have been announced, like Team Sonic Racing, Shenmue 3 ( which changed into introduced almost four years in the past), and the PS4-exclusive Judgment. Sega is undoubtedly operating on new video video games, but most likely we haven’t heard approximately them because they are in the works as exclusive titles for Google’s unannounced console. Of path, that is just hypothesis, and we need to strain that there is an opportunity Sega is rarely working with Google in any means.
The different potential video game writer Google also can be partnering with, based on Downey, is Ubisoft. This may make a lot of sense, especially since Ubisoft is among the industry’s biggest third-birthday celebration publishers and has shown a willingness to support new, unproven hardware correct out of the gate.
Furthermore, Ubisoft has already partnered with Google to aid check its Project Stream platform. In 2018, Google and Ubisoft allowed game enthusiasts to examine Project Stream by way of playing the critically-acclaimed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and because there is a longtime relationship among the two companies, their persevered cooperation appears likely.

Then once again, or not it’s feasible that Google ‘s video video game plans are far much less bold than many predict. But with this year’s GDC set to kick off in just over a week on Monday, March 18, fans don’t have to attend lots longer to discover out if there is any truth to these rumors.
