I too would agree. Babylon is a physical place in two senses. One, as an ancient Kushite civilization, and the other as today's western world/matrix we currently live in. The belly of the beast.
As it is symbolic of a state of mind/consciousness. Lower nature/higher nature. Beast/god.
These are indeed complimentary principles, as opposed to contradictive. 2 sides one of one coin. Yin/Yang.
