Kids These Days

As I mentioned yesterday, much of the symbolism behind giant monsters in mythology centers around the fear of the unknown. The question to ask, however, is what does such a creature mean to those who don't fear things which are new and different to themselves?

We live in an age where everything has opened up~ technology is there to show everything imaginable to anyone who wants to see it at whatever time they so choose. We can broadcast everything from strict journalism to complete fantasy in such a way that it's hard to distinguish one from the other. We can pull up every piece of information and data and trivial anecdote on any topic in an instant. In a world such as we live in, what "new" thing is there to fear?
