First time posting, long time lurking.

How has no one told me about this masterpiece before?

Jean-Paul Sartre
Carl Jung (lovingly referenced as "Carl")
Ayy lmaos conspiracies
Earlier internet histories
Battles between the Ego, Id, and Superego.
class hierarchy structure/seedy political espionage.

This show covered a lot of ground, and most anime these days have nothing close to this level of thinking FOR AN ANIME.

If you feel it was too deep for you it probably was, and here are some attached images that really affected me at the end of the show. I actually cried when Lain cried, because I feel exactly the same way.

I'm actually an Epistemological nihilism
Main article: Epistemological nihilism

a little on that:

Epistemological nihilism is a form of skepticism in which all knowledge is accepted as possibly untrue or unable to be known.

I don't believe in God, but the anime gave me hope that things would be ok.

Even in this cesspool we all identify as brothers and sisters trying to ascend or descend according to our philosophy down a hierarchical structure of knowledge that will bring us closer to true understanding.

I can respect that.

I know that these comments are either bait or headed to pg 10, but I don't care.

I'm a biology major who wants to study Neuroscience so a lot of these themes hit home for me.

I watched Lain when I was 14.
Loved it, it has a great soundtrack (especially the BGM ones, not just the "hits" from the 1st OST like Lain's Theme and the like, which are also nice anyway, but the more ambient/experimental soundtrack used in this series is quality stuff.

This is just fucking beautiful.

I remember using Taro as nickname in chatrooms in the year 2000, and once found a girl with the nickname Lain (this was in just a random chat room from my country, not one for anime). I remember she told me that yes, the name was due to S.E. Lain and that she was with a friend, let's call her Mika.
I remember getting their phone number, calling her, and arranging a sort of date, at some anime projection event, they were doing Kare Kano and EoE.
The girl with the nickname "Lain" turned out to be this really ugly skinny nerdy girl with a stache. But Mika was also there, this tall, voluptuous brunette who was actually the one I talked with on the phone. She left her friend, this Lain girl, alone, and dragged me to the back of the room, where it was dark and away from the crowded public in the front, watching the first episodes of Kare Kano.
We made out for hours, then convinced me to go to the bathroom. We walked some stairs up and found the men's bathroom, nobody was there. So we placed a chair that was conveniently there right on the door, locking in from inside. I sat on the chair and told her to sit over me, but she was like "nuh-huh" and made me sit over her, I'm not sure why, maybe she thought she would be too heavy for me, wasn't far, but she was taller, bigger than me. She went really wild and tried to unzip my pants, but then someone knocked on the door.
Long story short, this girl ended up stalking me when I "broke" with her some weeks later, she hacked my email account and kept calling home, leaving spooky messages to my mom for me, like "tell Anon that I'm watching him" and stuff.

You literally just mis-copied and pasted this from the wikipedia article on Nihilism.

You aren't an Epistemological anything.
