There is a sacred structure underlying Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster (1964, 三大怪獣 地球最大の決戦, Three Giant Monsters: Earth’s Greatest Battle). The New Testament Book of Revelation is a strange and mysterious book to most of us. But armed with the interpretive key, the symbolism of the apocalypse becomes understood. At the center of John’s writings is what scholars identified as the key to unlocking the meaning of the book. That key is the story of the woman and the dragon/serpent in chapter 12. The meaning of this story seems obscure and opaque on the surface. But it quickly makes sense when the reader and interpreter recalls the first biblical story of a woman and a serpent in Genesis 3. The Bible is not the only source of such stories. This age old story is found elsewhere and its myth continues to be used to frame human history in fascinating ways. In Genesis, the story could be summarized as such. The serpent is at war with the woman. Her future salvation lies in the birth of her child who will grow up to be a warrior and who then will crush the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:13-15). Unfortunately, human history is replete with stories of the ravages of war that leave behind widows and orphans. And the question, Who will protect them? remains to be answered. The story of the woman and the dragon is an archetypal and mythical story that provides an origin, explanation and pattern for the cause, the nature and the outcome of human conflict and war.
