Revolutionary Girl Utena’s TRUE REVOLUTION

Revolution

n. an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.

n. a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, especially one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence.

n. the action of moving around something in a path that is similar to a circle

The cycle of death and rebirth. The cycle of the duels. All of it Akio and Himemiya have seen before. They have been through this before.

The spiral — a representation of this cycle.

Himemiya; woman; femininity — the one who gives birth. Her fate is to have sexual intercourse with the winning duelist, as is typical in marriage.

Akio; man; masculinity — the one who brings death. He sets up the duels which represent the competition to kill one another for possession of the Rose Bride.

The duelists want the power to revolutionize the world. But what kind of revolution will they bring? Exactly the kind Akio and Himemiya have seen over and over again. They are revolutionizing the world in that they are causing it to revolve. They are causing time to revolve; to loop back.

Eternity. This is the dream of many.

Apocalypse. This is the inevitable destiny.

If eternity existed, what form would it take?

Diamonds can be shattered.

Love never lasts.

No matter what monument or construct one sculpts, time triumphs over will. No pyramid is intact. No statue remains untarnished. All is temporary.
The only way to create something eternal would be to stop time. Think now, a game can be played for an infinite number of times. Because after all has happened, the clock is reset and the game is spawned again, untouched from each play. What if the same could be achieved for reality? What if real life could repeat, over and over again? It would bring revolution to the world, in all senses of the word. Not only would our society be revolutionized, but the world would revolve, always repeating, always continuing.
