[Sorry for bumping an older thread.]

I think it must be hard to deny that the Greedy Worms were meant to look somewhat phallic (I say "somewhat"!). And as much as I agree that they may be there 'creating' the holes and / or are another aspect of the umbilical cord symbolism, couldn't they also be representing big purple cocks?

Now I know next to nothing about basic psychology, so do correct me if I'm way off, but didn't Freud talk about something like male children wanting to sleep with their mothers and being jealous of their fathers and that sort of thing? Could the Greedy Worms' phallic looks which appear heaving and thrusting through the various worlds which make up Walter's memories and want for his mother be part of some subconscious sexual desire for his mother, in Freud's sense of it?

I dont think that much thought went into the SH4 enemies, to be honest.

I would imagine its designing was nothing more than;
"So theres like a big worm that makes tunnels. Now lets SH-it up."
"Give it two heads!"
"Nah"
"make it all...stitch-faced!"
"Nah"
"Make it look like a giant cock! Everyone's scared of giant cocks"
"Done and done"

lol i should of thought of that! i was biased, because when i saw the worms, i immediately thought of the exact same thing from my imagination, the worm, laying inside the imagination.....as seen in Alice. what it exactly meant to me, i actually forgot. but yeah, i should of thought of that....


The realities have be linked somehow

You are defiantly not sliding through a worm.
You know that hole that's in the middle once you're going down the huge spiral stairs? It's kind of just floating there with nothing behind it. It could be some sort of magical connection. :)

Yup, we're talking about the Oedipus complex (male children) and Elektra complex (female children).

But what about when your traveling down the spiral to "the deepest part of him"
the holes are in the middle of nowhere connected to nothing

Sure it can. The holes are clearly multidimensional. Why can't they connect to a worm without physically touching it?

It's Silent Hill, sometimes things just don't make sense :P

It does make sense, the worm is linking the worlds together (Umbilical Chord), it doesn't mean that ever single world is scrunched up together :P

I think of it as a type of Nowhere though it really isn't. Yes, Silent Hill is confusing.
