Taken literally, that would mean a life never conceived also represented infinite evil.

Even if we take this only in the context of death, I still strongly disagree.

Death is a natural part of life. Indeed, I feel it is a requirement. Imagine the problems the world would not suffer if no one ever died. Even if that also came at the cost of no one being born, the consequences would be even greater than most could imagine.

You say" Death is a natural part of life" . It is true that other people's deaths are a part of every person's life since people die every minute. But a person's own death is not a part of his life, but the end, unless you count any hypothetical afterlife as part of his life. You say that there would be be a lot of problems if nobody died. I think that facing those problems is quite acceptable, considering the alternative.

Besides, a human body could only be kept alive for centuries or thousands of years (possibly spaced over a much longer span by suspended animation or something with a similar effect. To live longer than that a person would have be radically transformed,by copying his memories into an intelligent robot body and brain, for example.. Thus he would have far different physical requirements for survival than a biological being and would not contribute to the nightmare of an overcrowded Earth you are probably imagining.

Regarding the first paragraph, arguing the a person's death is not part of their life is not a part of their life is a semantic argument. It akin to claiming that the end of a road is not part of the road.

Regarding your last sentence, you overlooked the fact that I already addressed that when I stated, "Even if that also came at the cost of no one being born,...". I thought I made it quite clear I was taking problems due to population growth out of the equation.

you wanna know why lelouch sacrificed himself in the end?

its simply because to eliminate the hatred gathered all upon him. remember that he wanted to create a new world for his sister nunally.

anyway i think you must review the episodes of the anime to understand better the revelations and turns in the story.

and besides, lelouch is not yet dead. there are rumors that there would be R3 coming soon.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking about too! a Spin-off about another resistance from another colony.


In the first episodes, it was shown in the political map that the Britannian forces passed through the Philippine Islands for the invasion of Japan.
According to codegeass.wikia.com the Philippines were Area 12, so Filipinos became twelvians, lol

But in the world map shown the anime, it showed that the Philippines were a part of the Chinese Federation.


pretty confusing, eh.

What I think

What do I think about Code Geass? You can find out if you read the Code Geass forum topics “Did Lelouch Kill Euphie to save the Japanese from Her?” “Did Lelouch Kill Euphie to save Her?”, and “Did Lelouch Kill Euhie to Gain Japnese Support?”.

It is true that the three opening posts total about 6,200 words.

The average American adult supposedly reads prose at about 250 to 300 words per minute. It would take him 24.8 to 20.66 minutes to read the three opening posts in those topics. If he spends five to ten minutes a day reading them he can be done in 4.96 to 5.185 days.

And I think that will be time well spent.

I agree they should have had more interaction between Lelouch and Rolo that would have been great instead of giving it to that piece of trash filler character Shirley
