Who would be the one to welcome you to instrumentality, /a/?
If it counts for anything, it'd probably be the
guyI fell in love with early last month. I still miss him.
That's practically what I wake up to every morning.
Why would she have nipples if she is a clone?
The moment you see a Rei floating in front of you, you are about 10 seconds away from losing your physical form and losing your at-field/individuality.
I imagine it would be terrifying in the same way that being born/death is terrifying: you're transitioning away from your current state of being. And returning probably isn't easy.
Also I personally think that many anons are leading a "round peg in a square hole" type of life. Just from my experiences on here, a lot of anons seem to be individualistic outsiders in many ways. How receptive are people who don't conform going to be to having their sense of self stripped away? I bet more than a few would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into instrumentality like Shigeru.
True, but so does doing heroin. That's probably a really poor analogy, but you get the idea. If I personally was told instrumentality was going to begin in x-days, I would have second thoughts.
