What does this have to do with Westworld?
To begin with, everything. Oedipus had a reputation as a fair king who made life in Thebes better for his subjects, but his earthly skills were no match for his destiny. Oedipus' hubris (tragedy and hubris are like bread and wine for the Greeks) was twofold: Not only did he believe he could escape what the gods had preordained, but solving the riddle of the Sphinx had given him the confidence that he could rid Thebes of anything that ailed it. He ultimately achieved the latter, but at an enormous cost that reverberated for generations of Thebans and throughout Greek literature.
You could think of Delos as having a non-Freudian Oedipus complex. Not only do they believe they've developed technology that makes them smarter than the average peon, but they want to prove wrong the only prophecy that rules everyone born on earth, which is mortality -- starting with James Delos. No matter what kinds of wildly optimistic or crackpot techno-libertarian advancements appear in headlines or as the mission of the next hot startup, no one can cure death. It's not a riddle, just plain old fate, and when human hubris makes us forget fate, or try to conquer it, the result is usually chaos and disaster. Case in point: the degenerated James Delos #149. Not only did William fail to crack the cognitive plateau of his host-hybrid experiment, but his arrogance in leaving James #149 alive past his mental limits bred erratic, murderous, and masochistic host-human. The Rolling Stones song, "Play With Fire," that pops up on Delos' record player says it all!
Additionally, if we assume that the control unit Bernard printed out and pocketed were a new Ford, who seems to have independently attempted re-engineering the same kind of host-hybrid as James Delos, some people could be in store for a painful awakening. (Is he after Delos board members? Did Ford crack what William couldn't? Is the unit even Ford??)
That displaced chaos is what we're seeing in the parks this season, and whether the Man in Black will recognize the role his own hubris plays in this narrative will likely determine his future. Unfortunately for him, a defining feature of hubris is that those who suffer from it tend only to realize their errors when it's too late.
