Saturn the titan?

A rabbit trail I once followed involved looking up information about Saturn the titan....aka Chronos. I won't post here, but I'd reccomend looking up the story of Chronos, and read it while watching the video....its kinda creepy how well it fits, though Im pretty sure that wasn't the intent.

You sure its not connected? They say there are no coincidences in life.
Anything specific in the video to connect it to the myth?
Fire lives only to consume.
Darkness lives only to consume.
If you wish to live, then die.

I wouldn't be surprised if the myth influenced the video somehow, perhaps maybe even sub- or unconsciously. The song The Grudge directly mentions Saturn, and seems to serve as both an astrological and mythological reference. To be sure, this myth was swimming in the unconscious mind of at least one Tool member.

Saturn is known as the Bringer of Old Age. This (Saturn: The Bringer Of Old Age) is, by the way, also a beautiful piece of music by Gustav Holst.

"Saturn ascends" may mean time is running out for the subject(s) of The Grudge.
I Might Be Wrong.
