... wait what? Moby dick has a hidden meaning? I honestly never knew that. I never read the book but I know about it. What was the hidden meaning?

There's no real hidden meaning in the overarching story. In fact, Moby Dick itself serves as a sort of blank canvas for symbolism. Native peoples worship the white whale as a god; Ahab see's Moby Dick as his own personal demon and the manifestation of his physical and mental woes; Ishmael comes to see it as a symbol of his own inner peace even after seeing why it would drive Ahab to insanity.

One of the major themes in the work is the power of one's own perception. The way characters perceive Moby Dick and the doubloon Ahab nails to the mast to motivate his crew, tells us about each of them and their lives and personalities. If you want to call that hidden meaning, I suppose you could.

i think some people try to look too deeply into the 'meanings' of books and writings

In the episode he later goes on to say " Does the white whale actually symbolize the unknow ability and meaninglessness of human existence" Scoffs " No it's just a ******* fish.

I'm super saucy
