I have to keep going on this journey no matter the obstacle. I have to overcome this mental block.
Rocky still can't shake this depressed feeling he has. He doesn't want to train but he keeps thinking about what his trainer told him, and kept pushing. This scene represents when Siduri tried to close the gate on Gilgamesh.
Rocky Keeps pushing against his mental block and finally overcomes it. Nothing can stop him now. This scene relates to Gilgamesh stopping Siduri from closing her gate and stopping his journey
After Rocky passes his mental block he sees his friend Apollo again. He tells him a story about his fight with rocky's opponent.
I Have fought Mr. T in the past, he is a hard hitter but has little stamina. You just have to keep him out of range and get strikes on him. This will eventually tire him out
Although rocky still wants to train, he immediately falls asleep once he gets in his room. This scene relates to when Gilgamesh had to stay up for 7 days and nights. Once the challenge began, he fell asleep immediately.
After rocky has a 2 day sleep he wakes up ready for his big fight. This is similar to Gilgamesh realizing he can't become immortal and has to listen to Siduri's words of living his life to the fullest. Rocky's trainer told him he would lose but rocky fought anyway.
This scene represents how Gilgamesh felt accomplished after his journey even though he didn't gain eternal life. He got rid of his depressed state and realized there are better things to life.
I've accomplished my journey and won for myself and my trainer!
