I can agree with that generally, so I meant it more in the sense of the conceit of the creators that they can ultimately control their creations at all. Was the dragon under human control in the end; if so, was it fulfilling the agenda of the same humans who created it; if not, was it betraying another purpose or betraying its own?
We can't fully know the truth of those questions, all we really know is that humanity eventually was able to make a new choice, one which was at odds with, and born of the mistakes of previous choices.
But the most striking, if hard to pin down parallel to me, was simply the duality of the 'enemy'. It was one, yet represented opposing beliefs. It chose to be the enemy of its future self. In that sense one of the most ingenious time paradoxes I've ever seen dramatized.
And it's also subjective, since that's a pet theme I've never been able to put to rest one way or another. I still believe Sestren and the Heresy dragon are in some sense the same, so then in that sense it is also like attacking itself.
