Philosophy and The Matrix: Return to Source

(Re-posted from June, 2012)

There is something for everyone here on AngelicView!


Many people (including myself) believe that there is a lot of philosophical principals to be gained from watching the movie, “The Matrix”. Here are some quotes from the movie:

Morpheus: “What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

Morpheus: “Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream, Neo? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?”

Neo: “What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?”
Morpheus: “No, Neo. I’m trying to tell you that when you’re ready, you won’t have to.”

“The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”

Young Monk:   “Do not try and bend the spoon—that’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.
Neo:   “What truth?”
Young Monk:   “There is no spoon.

Below is a documentary on deciphering the philosophic views of the movie.
