Wow I like you and your logical thinking and rationalizion. I think you put things in perspective better than I could have since you've read the novels in Japanese or Chinese and I can't read those languages. I wish there were more like you.

I found this hard to rate since this episode lacked what I loved about the previous episode but in it's place we we're given the explanation of why Haruhi is Haruhi and the proof of closed space/Itsuki's power, so in the end I gave it a 9.

I gave it an 8. I knew this wasn't going to be the most interesting episode of the season so I was prepared for that :P. Next episode is going to be great though, it's gonna be a nice ending...and hopefully a hint of there being a 2nd season in the "outro" portion.

Now this episode wasn't as fun as usual but we finally got a bit of insight on what the heck is going on.

So 3 years ago a bunch of people realize they're espers with strange powers when in closed spaces.Also 3 years ago the Data Entity sends Asakura and Yuki to the human world to watch Haruhi.And of course 3 years ago was when Haruhi reliazed she wasn't as special as she had though. (she sais it happened at the end of her sixth grade,while middle school lasts 3 years and the series begins during the first year of high school)

Now I"m wondering,did she gain the ability to shape the world,or did she always have that power,except it never manifested itself until the 6th grade because she was happy until then?

Also it's very interesting how Koizumi sort of blamed Kyon for every unnatural events that happened so far.

Gave it a 7, this episode may have been a necessary evil but I still felt somewhat cheated of my weekly Haruhi fix.

I'm going to give it a 9.
Like others said, plenty of info given to get us up to speed as to what really is going on, but with no "wow" thing to bump up the rating (IMHO).
I agree that the fight with the Shinjin<Celestial> was too short and could have been made longer... though it was exactly like novel one's chapter six described.

I have to give this episode a 9. It was very well done, and while it left out a few things was very faithful to the novel. KyoAni did another great job. I'm now looking foward to the last episode even more than I had been. If KyoAni does this good a job with that, I know I won't be disappointed.

That's it! I knew there was something off about that, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it until I read your post. If they had left out the bgm, and made the footsteps and voices more pronounced, it would have been better, and possibly would have gotten a ten from me.

Translation errors maybe?
None of those are necessarily errors. The chinese version added the phrase on the road, which isn't wrong. However, it was probably unnecessary. When translated to english from that, moving was left out as unnecessary to the english sentence. That translation would also be correct, though the implication does change from there are cars, but none are moving without specifing if they're parked on the side or on the road, to there is no traffic, but there may or may not be parked cars.

What it shows is be wary of translations. Even if the translation is accurate, there may be some lost or altered meaning.

Kyon mentioned all the events Haruhi deemed as actions that lost their color in the episode preview. One final clue for ep.14 ending.

I used to think this but I was corrected by those who have read all the stories. Something else happens 3 years ago to trigger her. Something we won't see animated until they do a second season.

I suppose this episode was informative, unfortunately it was also kinda boring overall because of the longwinded explanations. 7/10

Actually, this episode makes me think the odds of a second season are higher -- its like the introductory setup for the situation our heroes are in.

Basically, you're reaching the "42" conclusion
What point there is to be had is in appreciating that at this instant, there is a *you* ... a unique bump in the matter-energy matrix that can observe the field around it and appreciate it. Find other bumps that "get it", have fun, and try not to make a mess for the bumps that will come later.

Well, a good episode, but not as good as the others. I kinda wanted to slap Kyon, does he not see that Haruhi is having feelings for him. Can he not find any words or actions to comfort her?

It seems this episodes philisophic nature envoked quite a bit of theorizing amongst the fans. A lot of speculations on why we exist it seems. Kinda funny....
