Shijima is a Reason, a powerful inner philosophy that encompasses a set of natural laws, based on stillness and oneness, influenced by Buddhism and the concept of Nirvana. It is a world of perfect harmony, where there is no 'self' whatsoever, and no passion to cause dissent, conflict and destruction. Individuality is eradicated, and replaced with a collective inner peace where everyone is equal to a god, all working together as cogs in the giant, stable machine that is the Universe. This Reason is most closely associated with the Law alignment of previous Shin Megami Tensei games.
His dream is a world of silence, where the dangerous passion of man is neutralized, and everyone is at one with the world: this, he calls the Reason of Shijima.

Often used in connection with the death of a conversation after one participant unwittingly reveals that they are a moron. See also tumbleweed moment.
"But then Katie made a singularly unfunny cancer joke..."

The frigid stillness was the perfect place to produce a fartsicle for our collective enjoyment.
responsible for my moment of enlightenment. i can still see it, a sky a road and complete stillness. my eyes changed shape. karen @ the farm recognized this. why does perfection always come in packages?
if i were a boy, i would hope to be like him.

"Shit! There's a dinasaur after us!"
"Holy crap! Ok, we gotta logicalize... Dinasaurs can only see movement, right?"
"Ok, I've got an idea!"
"What is it?"
"You run that way, I'll stay here, completely motionless!"
