Westworld: Two mega/meta clues

edited October 2016 in Westworld
Let's not lose sight of two potential mega/meta clues that were clear prior to even the first episode:

1) The poster and iconic Westworld image being very reminiscent of The Vitruvian Man
  • one intriguing connection to Westorld is to this interpretation of The VM: 
2) The tag line: "Every Hero has a Code"
  • Who are the potential heroes?  what is the code?
  • How much is the monomyth (aka. the Hero's journey) being referenced here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero's_journey
  • If they have a "code," does this imply Hosts, destiny, programming, a bug, etc?

    I was thinking Hopkin's character name might be a reference to Henry Ford. Hopkins is mass producing robots on an assembly line, like Ford produced the automobile. This might also draw some parallels to Brave New World. So does the Shakespeare stuff now that I think about it. 
  • "Every Hero has a Code"

    Not knowing the Westworld context, but a 'code' is a set of morals/ethics that peer groups have.

    You are a hero if you overcome obstacles in a humane/ethical manner. To go all "berserker mode", "God mode", or take the "scorched earth" approach to a solution is not being heroic.
