*** No one is forced to do everything the Sibyl System tells you to do. In the movie, Akane's friend talks about meeting her new fiance through the system, but they indicate that it's not mandatory. The CommuField celebrities are technically unemployed but they make a living by being popular. The Sibyl System wouldn't tell Spooky Boogie that she should be an anarchistic internet celebrity. That's something she wanted to do on her own.

*** Akane didn't threaten to kill Makishima, she only explained that having her Dominator locked into paralyzer mode would be the best way to make sure she could take him in alive.

*** The very first time we see Makashima his CC isn't zero so clearly asymptomatic people don't have to have a constant value of zero.

*** It might be able to do that after a criminally asymptomatic person has been identified, which given the secrecy surrounding them is not likely, but short of eyewitness observation (like Akane) or active surveillance of them committing an obvious crime (with an accompanying psycho pass raise around them) the system has no way of determining if they are asymptomatic or not. Both Makashima and Touma were both clever enough to avoid drawing attention to themselves for long periods of time.

** They are not asymptomatic as a collective - the collective Psycho-Pass measurement can judge Sibyl as a whole. That doesn't explain how it could tell which brains it needed to purge, though - judging by TheMovie, of course, it ''didn't'' actually change its stripes when it purged the corrupt brains and cleared its hue, so it may just have been a random reshuffle.

** Because Ginoza knows that a criminally asymptomatic person like Makishima would still show up through both body and cymatic scans. The difference with Kamui is [[spoiler: Sybil didn't even register him as a living person.]]

* How could the Sibyl system have possibly been created? The only brains that can be used are those of the criminally asymptotic, but those people can only be discovered by reading their Psycho Pass--which is only possible when the Sibyl system to already be in place.

** I'm really surprised they didn't just set Crime Coefficient 100 as a default for criminally asymptomatic people, enough to trigger Paralyzer mode. That would allow them to capture and recruit them immediately, without bothering with this roundabout way of doing things.

* It doesn't seem like the movie answered it, but... who financed the terrorists in the opening? Kougami was quite surprised they were able to make the journey from Southeast Asia to Japan, and the equipment they had like the visors was far more advanced than what the ragtag militia had.

** It was implied Sibyl helped them in secret, as having them come to Japan allowed them to be easily executed and lead Akane on a wild goose chase to see Shinya, [[spoiler:where it would allow Sibyl to have Nicholas Wong kill both of them, tying up two loose ends easily, while they work on their objective of controlling SEAUN and then killing Nicholas. This nearly happens perfectly in Sibyl's favor too.]]

* How could the Sybil System's psycho-pass be measured? Aren't they all criminally asymptomatic? Couldn't they all just make their psycho-passes Zero, and thus avoid Kamui's judgment?
