I would like to point out a minor comparison to the chinese mythological character Ch’ang-o (goddess of the moon) to Eve in the Bible’s Genesis. The marginal notes on the side of page 124 explains Ch’ang-o, a woman who stole the elixir of immortality (a magical potion). Unfortunately for her, she did not drink enough of the potion to reach heaven and as a result only reaches the moon. This immediately brings me to the idea of Eve and her curiosity towards the tree of knowledge. Both women demonstrate a desire for power whether it is immortality or knowledge. Also, both women fail in some way: Ch’ang-o does not drink enough, Eve is punished for eternity.
