I fail to see why these people reject the Life Fiber. What are the consequences of allowing the parasite to feed off of the electrical current in the nervous system besides moving up to the top of the food chain? Last time I checked, being on top of the food chain guaranteed a spot of control and survival within an ecosystem, especially when you are a conscious creature.

Did the writers of this piece derp it up and forget to tell us the bad part of allowing Life Fibers to feed off humans?
>>
>>101458279
I don't think Satsuki is in a good condition
>>
Life fibers only evolved mankind only to take over them once they get activated,which i assume will be at the festival ragyou was talking about
>>
>Did the writers of this piece derp it up and forget to tell us the bad part of allowing Life Fibers to feed off humans?
Did you miss the whole part of what happens when life fiber gets too much blood?
>>
>>101458279
I was thinking about this aswell.
Probably they force humans to evolve so that humans can reproduce life fiber, so that once every human has a life fiber outfit they will take control of them or something.... i don't know
>>
>>101458442
Only because she doesn't communicate with her Kamui and befriend it.

>>101458603
And that was the Life Fiber's responsibility? Besides, Satsuki could have very well put her down. This kind of situation would be even less dangerous for clothes of lower quality Life Fibers. It's not a big deal and simply needs to be kept under control with laws and simple systems of enforcement. Such a thing is no different from the criminals we get in the real world.
>>
>>101459442

What makes you think Senketsu isn't unique in his love for his symbiont? That seems to be the case at the moment but it's too early to tell.
>>
>>101458279
Because if anyone is actually watching this anime for the writing they're suffering from a severe disability.

It's hyperactive entertainment with a lot of colors, noise, and doesn't slow down to get into any depth. I like it but its plot is just the loose canvas it uses to paint all its ADHD on.
>>
>>101459531
The fact that Satsuki has never been seen to try and befriend her Kamui is the evidence that Senketsu's love for Ryuko isn't necessarily an ability unique only within his capabilities. After Satsuki is done wearing Junketsu for the day, she immediately pins him to the wall and drinks tea.

It's not fool's logic. There's more reason to assume she doesn't try to talk to Junketsu than there is reason to assume she does, just like there's more reason to believe that unicorns don't exist in the real world than there is reason to believe that they might.

>>
>>101459853

That's not proper application of Occam's Razor because you're assuming several things such as there's reasons Junketsu can't be subjugated/reasoned/cooperative and that Satsuki knows these reasons and thus no longer attempts.

I simply assume Senketsu was uniquely created outside of the Revoc's camp with an innate love for the person he was created to be worn by.

Either way its pretty obviously stated the intentions of the lifefibers were to build a species up to its pinnacle before they took them over. Maybe, just maybe the parasites are benevolent and won't ever take more than they need. That's a pretty fucking big maybe and given everything we've seen so far, highly unlikely. A space faring alien parasitic species doesn't cross the cosmos and bring a species past enlightenment just so they can nibble on their scraps. The whole thing is just a stylized version of the planet-devouring-alien-species plot.

No, I'm saying Junketsu is fully capable of loving but Satsuki simply doesn't have experience in the honest and emotional part of having a loving relationship. She's only grow up to know the powers of fear and submission. I think this is made very clear in the series.
>>
>>101458279
It's a parasite until it decides to take over it's host, at which point the parasite has no need of the host.

If both sides benefit, it's all cool but if one side plans to work together just to eat you in the end, you tend to want to kill the other side before it happens.

Are you seriously that retarded not to even know this basic fact?

Yeah, I'd much rather assume Nudist Beach has some sort of evidence of hostility or disregard for their host rather than assume Nudist Beach is a bunch of tin foil hats.

It'd be still somewhat entertaining if Nudist Beach was wrong and the Chaos horror Senketsu displayed was simply due to not being in contact with the hive. We'd be getting a massively skewed perception up until now.
>>
>>101460752
I always wondered how they built that

Though you would think if they had alien tech at their disposal, they could create something a lot less crude than a big pile of rocks.
>>
>>101460661
The writers failed to include the part where the parasite "eats" them. It looks like they kind of just forgot.

And even if we're supposed to assume this and maybe I'm just being dumb, why didn't they clarify what "eating" us in the end really means? They just turn us into burgers and take big bites out of us?
>>

and then saying they don't really know what the life fibers will do but they're pretty sure it's bad and needs to be stopped before it's too late.

Did you not listen to what he said right after he explained the rat situation? He said that as a result, the Life Fibers began to wrap themselves around their hosts instead so that they wouldn't kill them as quickly.

Face it, Nudist Beachu is a bunch of Tin Foils. And I'm not saying being a Tin Foil Hat is bad thing, I'm just saying they lack justification for their actions.

That's probably the worst thing you can do for your cause in reality.

Giorgio Tsoukalos is brilliant in that he's made a name for himself as well as a pretty penny off mixing somewhat mysterious situations with fantastic (see: fantasy) explanations.

>>101462106

Google it if you want a lecture.

New theories include carts/sleds of wicker and wood that were pulled by a team of work animals. I don't particularly understand the physics behind this because I don't care enough to find a long explanation of this theory.

The older theory is simply clever usages of wedges and rollers. It's fairly easy to imagine how the mechanics behind this works but it would require a much larger team of men and animals. The main rocks pulled from a nearby quarry were far enough away it's assumed it would have taken several weeks to traverse the landscape.

The crafting of the rocks themselves isn't even worth discussing and the transport is fairly mundane as well. It's only held as a mystery in this day and age because your 2nd grade teacher was too dumb to look up resources before gushing about its spiritual importance.

I guess I failed to mention that there were actually two options for the common person to become powerful, either go to school or simply buy REVOC clothing, i.e. study hard in the proper school or invest in the proper company.

It's mainly fear at this point, not knowledge. The Life Fibers as far as they know are extraterrestrial parasites who empower the host at the cost of an electrical current in the nervous system, but they've been "dormant". They don't know what will happen if they are activated, which is something we've yet to see assumedly. Considering they are the vast majority of clothing in the world, if activation is something inherently dangerous, that could be an extremely bad occurrence for most of mankind.

But the same year, an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy's book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, "for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound."

Pretty sure Trigger said that Ryuuko's relationship with Senketsu is special and that Satsuki cannot do it.

Maybe she can hear Junketsu, maybe it doesn't even speak her language and just yells some creepy alien language? He seems incredibly more alienlike and feral than Senketsu does.

>>
>>101469503
It was behind glass before she even put it on, perhaps it was like that for a reason?

People are taking that quote from Ryuuko about her being one with Senketsu to mean that she thinks Satsuki is unwilling to connect with her kamui when she could just as well be implying that her and Senketsu are special. She doesn't know if all Kamui are the same, hell Ryuuko seems to be surprised that Life Fibers are living beings, she probably thought that Senketsu was the only one who was sentient.
>>
>>101469503

The five-star uniform got constructed from fresh life-fibres. Immediately went berserk and tried to kill everything.

Mohawk flashback Kamui: Went berserk. Killed it's wearer.

Plus Junketsu. Which, admittedly, Satsuki is not treating particularly well, as you point out.

Thus far, the balance of evidence is that Senketsu is an exception, rather than the rule.
>>
>>101469174
What if Junketsu is pissed off because he just wants to be friends with Satsuki but can't communicate because Satsuki is blocking him? It would be great if there was an episode focused entirely on Satsuki sitting in a room with Junketsu to try and hear its thoughts.

It would be interesting to see her change that outlook a little, but I don't know if it'll happen because she's likely going to be consumed by Junketsu soon, I think she'll get pulled out but you'd think that make her even more afraid of him.

You both may be half right. It's not that Senketsu is special, it's that Ryuko is special. It was mentioned last episode that she has an unusually high tolerance towards Life Fibers.

Both the Pyramids and the Parthenon were built by societies with far greater technological and political sophistication than the people who built Stonehenge.

I thought episode 16 was pretty good for giving us some more insight in to Satsuki.

I'm sure before that episode aired people thought Satsuki was just cruel to Junketsu because she's a bitch but she has a perfectly valid reason for not giving him any control over anything. Maybe he can talk, maybe he's even friendly but she won't let that happen because she's afraid of Life Fibers, that's why she wants to dominate them and keep them down.

Well, and what about the flashback of the mohawk guy that shos somebody being eaten/absorbed by a rope made of lif fiber in chapter 4 or 5?
