A. Cantatis asked Jeff VanderMeer:

In Annihilation, I noticed a lot of symbolic references to different levels of the psyche. Was this intentional, or am I reading too much into your story?

Jeff VanderMeer Stuff like that tends to come out of the subconscious, so I recognize there's a lot of things in Annihilation that come out in the subtext, and all you can do as a writer is get a sense of these things and either cut stuff you don't like that's resonating or enhance it.
