    More Important Than What, Is When..

    This is my very first post on this project thing, and I feel that it is most appropriate to write about The Matrix, because in detail like Alice and Neo we are truly tumbling down the rabbit hole and we are supposed to embrace balance, chaos and fate.

    What Is The Meaning Of Life?

    I think that the mere fact that most people ask this question at some point during their life eludes to our slavery. Why would we be seeking something so very intrinsic to our nature unless we were not, as it were, unfulfilled? The masks that we wear, the games that we play...

    Wake Up!

    Is what I want to scream at everyone who accepts the things that people tell them. Open your eyes and take a look around. Do you think the world was meant to be this way? There are millions of starving children in impoverished countries, all dying daily while other countries...
