Since much of Ballard's fiction is diagnostic, setting forth the terms of the human predicament—trapped in time and the material 24 Out of the Night and Into the Dream world—or hortative, warning us of the pitfalls of ego and illusion, it has frequently been assumed that the author's vision is pessimistic, fatalistic, even nihilistic. Such a view overlooks the central concern of Ballard's writing with the problem of transcendence, with exceeding the limitations of material, temporal being and ordinary ego-consciousness.
In "The Gioconda of the Twilight Noon"30 Ballard recasts the Oedipus myth as a parable of the struggle between the ego and the The Dimension of the Disaster 33 unconscious, employing again the motif of an irresistible attraction that ultimately overthrows the conscious mind. Ballard's revised, updated version of the myth reverses the significance of the self-inflicted blindness of the hero from that of representing an act of self-punishment, of despair and defeat, to that of representing an act of liberation.
If I fail, Man has no right to assert his innate superiority over the unreason of the natural world. (142) In fact, Hardoon does fail. The wind ultimately topples Hardoon's pyramid, and then buries it completely under huge drifts of dust. And with that, as if having made its point, the wind at last begins to subside. In the nature of Hardoon's struggle against the wind, and in his defeat, lies the symbolic meaning of the cataclysm, and perhaps also an indication of its true origin in what is a sentient nature or perhaps an unconscious collective human need.
