    More Important Than What, Is When..

    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...

    The Matrix Is a Metaphor For Life

    The philosophical tone conveyed by The Matrix was the main reason I watched it over and over again. I was just fascinated by the movie and it remains to be the best movie in my list.

    The Matrix And Maslow

    It is difficult to add much to the other Matrix as a metaphor for life stories. My personal angle is one that I’ve been thinking about very recently, long after I joined this group. I think there are some nice links between the Matrix world concept and...
