I haven't watched death + rebirth / end of evangelion yet, haven't had time. all I can say is.. wtf wtf is with all that 'I am the me that exists in your mind and you are the you that exists in your mind' and all that stuff, ending in applause standing on the planet? it was like a personal growth seminar. explain? I undestood it on the surface, but failed to grasp the implications and how it related to other aspects of the plot.
