Bionic Commando as a Metaphor for God
I saw this boy playing a game in the Union Building on campus. He called it "Bionic Commando XBox" and it involved a man swinging around a city like spiderman. It made me think of how God always swings around the city of our lives. The city being the world and our lives being infinity. The Goddess of ancient people was also known to swing around a giant hammer called "Fate" -- I learned this in my Cultures of the Ancient World class. The FATE HAMMER could tame the forces of CHAOS. I guess in this video game, the Bionic man is swinging around, taming CHAOS. Well, it seemed really deep to me at the time.
