Symbolism within Project Code-X
Project Code-X symbolises one woman’s journey into hell, a place where the main character, Rebeka, finds herself tried and tested in order to see what she is made of at the core of her human make-up. A person can never really know what they are made of until they are put to the test, and it is only then that their true nature can be revealed.
Project Code-X itself takes place in a hexagonal building with the hexagon being a popular satanic symbol used in sorcery and witchcraft. To place a hex on somebody is to put someone under a spell. The sorcery taking place at Project Code-X, however, is one of a great deception that will be carried out on all the Citizens of Yuropia. The face of this project is the Junior Governor. He is the charismatic leader that is driving Project Code-X through to completion and it is under his close guidance, supervision and instruction that Rebeka finds herself. Without realising it, Rebeka is being initiated into a web of deceit and a scheme of darkness. Project Code-X is a mission of ultimate global conquest, an evil agenda in which she has unknowingly begun to play her part. However, will she be able to change the course of events that she knows are about to take place in Yuropia? Can one person influence the entire course of human history?
The hexagonal shape also conjures up connotations of a spider weaving its web, only this web is predominantly a cobweb of words in which each person’s story is unknowingly being woven into and intertwined with Project Code-X. Project Code-X itself serves as a symbol of a supreme, predatory female spider, one that is luring all of her prey into her catchment area so that she can bind them up nicely, until the time to devour them is right.
It is a female archetype, like Babylon the Great, one who has everyone caught up in her net. Yet, Rebeka symbolises another archetype, one who is struggling to break free. Yet, it is only as Rebeka grows in knowledge that she grows in strength, and it is only this strength which will ultimately give her the courage to take on this deadly, predatory foe.
