It’s a brave new world. Can I re-claim the crap from the toilet and make it dinner?
Godzilla is the thinking man’s Id confronted with the idea of genetically seeded destruction using nature as catalyst. If man can subvert nature into a catastrophic device (the atom) but somehow loose control of the agent that fuels that element of destruction (Godzilla/nuclear power), does man have ANY control? Is our interference with “nature” another function of “nature” insured to keep man from having an ultimate “control” over nature? We tamper with it and make a new toy that the other kids want/envy. Even if we gave it to the other kids willingly, would they know how to work the toy? Keep it from breaking, from shooting an innocent kid in the eye? Probably not. Godzilla is personification of that idea; that what you create, whether it be new-from-old or whole-cloth…an old perception is shattered, new terrors can walk, the weapons we needed will destroy us, history will come back to remind us that nature fights back using the oldest elements.
