    The idea that what we think is reality is actually not real shouldn't be so scary because it's already supported by our religious ideas of an afterlife and death. Basically you die and leave this created world and identity behind waking up on "the other side" where you can meet the creator. Implying that our reality is simulated and the only true reality would be the one in which "God/gods" reside.

    Neo never left The Matrix, he just found a hack to get into other secret level. Neo is a Modder.

    This could be true. The writer of the first Matrix movie called Matrix II and III a dream. In Matrix IV, Neo will wake up from his dream to continue his hero's journey.

    our user interface with computers is their subconscious and the matrix movies are a science-fiction hypothesis of what their conscious imagination may be pining for... the bright future day within the matrix is the impossible utopia that humanity is enabled to achieve after overcoming the crisis that only computers would like to think they could provide... as opposed to nuclear war where the weapons can't be anthropomorphized

  • Kilravok
    Kilravok 3 months ago

    Two points...
    1: I is pretty evident that the "real" world is another layer of the matrix, otherwise Neo would not have been able to shut down the sentinels and see Agent Smith's "aura" in the possessed body or the energy conduits on the way to machine city after being blinded.
    2: the energy fallacy is invalid. The makers intended originally to have the machines use humans for CPU and RAM capacity, not electricity. The guy from the studio who green lighted the production projected his own ignorance about computers into the entire viewership, claiming that nobody would understand the "humans as computer processing power" concept, forcing the lazy and completely flawed battery allegory.

    Even if this is all a program like the Matrix, who cares? Might as well enjoy the ride. And even if you do prove that this reality is a matrix and escape to the 'real' world, how do you know that's not just another matrix? I say it's best to just stay put and try to improve what you've got.

    Wait I just assumed that Zion was an "Outer Matrix", everyone who is "awake" are the only ones who are real (with all other characters not unplugged are like npc's) and the whole thing is scripted, at the end of the movie everyone just gets their memories wiped because they're still plugged in. Everyone who's plugged in are just experiencing this, like a dream/movie that plays out for those plugged in asleep, no-one else is real, it's all just a fiction made by the machines to trick the humans to "staying asleep", like how if you sometimes suspect a dream is actually a dream you often wake up... just my assumption :P lol

    They are well regarded in the scientific community by some experts and
    written off as phoney pseudo-scientists by others. Say what you will,
    but you could never argue the fact that these dudes know how to make
    their fame known and generate a strange following. That is a skill in
    that of itself. They were respected TV hosts at the height of their
    career, and now they are internet sensations. Read on to discover
    bizarre facts about the Bogdanoff brothers, and see for yourself!

    smuggled by rebel psychic vampires (whose conditionings were broken
    thanks to BrainForce), whom had to transfer it to Assanges laptop
    through wikileaks, and then descrypted and encrypted through the deep
    web. i may be putting my life on the line airing this forbidden footage
    Published on Jun 18, 2018

  • MuloSings
    MuloSings 5 months ago

    Wait, a minute. If the Matrix was created by humans to keep the robots in control, whats the point of making them super intelligent? The Matrix would have to reseemble the real world in order for any of their processing power to be useful. For instance, if you have the day/night cycle line up, you could use a robot to detect whether its day or night, and then input that information to the real world. But only if they are able to detect something happening in the real world are they useful.

    *Or maybe its all just a fun little experiement :)*

    What if all the humans are atually robots, but their taught that they are "humans" on "planet earth" and only a very very small percentagge of their processing power is actually used on Earth. But, of course, what would be the point of complex things, like single celled organisms, or astrology? If humans made the Matrix, they would have no reason to make it any more complicated than a Simpsons Halloween Special. *Naturally, humans and robots will believe what they see, and theres no reason for them to assume theres something above the sky except for a giant light blue tarp and some giant balls of cotton candy if they've been taught that from birth*

    also to the Oracle ate some candy that look like a red pill. So what if neo saw that an keep his choice for himself as a sacafice for the one he love. An after he lost her all be had was the people in his mind. Because if smith would have lost neo could have done the same thing. I think neo lost everything in belief, reason, love an self worth to just I want to see another place peacefully. But he like nature went out fighting an accepting if ur a god fearing or believing man an he was or at least was before an more.

  • Carl C'Q
    Carl C'Q 7 months ago

    Neo is the the unknown articutech , an everything before. For he seen many of himself before. Member trinity said he had a choice in the first matrix, but he knew what would happen if he walked down that road. Neo had nothing in a past of family or love so why do we live if not for love. Neo said that outside had curiosity, in the white rabbit . An that killed the cat! So neo world is only what he knew until he unplug of what we know, could have been a drug for pills aren't part of history or a real cure, its mostly a illusion. An religionwise we are all in his likeness but world we didn't create an in a different world if not the real world. Who from we are taught don't like a law breaker , superior being, if not but to be a hero at all risk for mankind in what we believe. An I came to the theory matrix is in are mind keeps us busy. An ever since then in real Life.since then people believe more in there heads the things there doing outside the outsider. An sadly u can tell the in society by sad event's. An before then violence didn't get believable until unbelievable viewing. An sadly technology is the matrix an the movie is just a view into the future an what we creat as man and in are minds, to past in a cycle history until extinction. Matrix is Pandoras box an we all have are part in it.

    I always felt that every iteration of the Matrix just kept going further in. So if there were 7 like the Architect said then Zion was only the 5th Matrix and each time the Matrix program become a corrupt (aka: people become unruly) they make a new Matrix within a Matrix to further trap the minds of the humans.
