(AKICHI NO MISOGI)
A phrase spoken by the members of SEELE
in episode 26' when the Geofront
reverts into the Egg of Lilith
- the "Black Moon
is a religious ceremony
in which the body is purified by bathing in water
-- and thus by extension refers to any means used to purify
a certain object. While there are theories that the etymology of "Adam
", the progenitor
of the human race
, is "red
" or "earth
", its connection with "Red Earth
" is unclear.
