  • I see City as a Spider that moves with us on the web... Spider is one of the oldest symbols between life and death as a "continuous sacrifice", as Schneider well noted. Its threads symbolize the duality of our world, in which Spider is a demiurge that connects the eternal and the finite. In the Upanishads, web thread symbolizes the sacred sound Om. In one of Akutagawa's stories, Buddha throws a thread into Hell to a criminal who didn't kill a Spider. Spider is both a God and Executioner, and this makes it similar to City.
