    And so the Lucifer was right – “God” was flawed, he wasn’t even God. What a revelation!

      And for those that attempt to play God and fail, only demise awaits them. I look forward to seeing Sibyl fall in the near future.

    I think I spent this entire episode completely riveted by the sheer scale of the discovery. I had initially envisioned a giant glowing celestial brain or being, but the brain thing was pretty crazy. Considering that the people that don’t fall into the “normal” range, and dangerous criminals are recruited to “police” the rest of society, once people find out, all hell is going to break loose again.

    Kind of annoyed that the gang spent most of the episode chasing a red herring looking for Kagari…poor Kagari. TT_TT

    I agree with you about Makishima – despite his stance and actions, I’m starting to like him a little more. Even if he is the antagonist (with Sybil), he is a very well-educated, understanding individual. He is trying to change a society by shaking its roots. Not to say his methods are “right” in the sense of Sybil, but they are very effective, and his reasoning for wanting the change is justified. The actions are extreme, and there are many victims, but the overall effect is great. He’s a one-man army, considering what he’s done.

    I get what you mean by feeling uncomfortable about the Chief’s body being broken…I really notice when women (android or not) get messed up in this show for some reason, because they always go in the worst way. ; _ ; Tsunemori’s friend, the first victim of the helmet, the woman in the video, even the victim in the first episode.

    The sad part is that people are so reliant on the system, that the treatment centers can’t keep up. So, in summary, society has been drugging it’s citizens to keep them for thinking because it’s convenient not to think?

      Ooo, nice call about the women – there are more examples too, like the woman who got doused with oil then set alight, Spooky Boogie, Oryo Rikako…I might be reading too deep into this, but maybe it’s a sort of social commentary on today’s society? In terms of their society, it’s definitely convenient for them not to think. Maybe they might not understand everything about the system, but if it maintains stability and keeps people happy then I suppose Sibyl sees that as the priority. If you start thinking thoughts that’ll threaten their stable society, then it’s a one way trip to prison for you.
