I Believe That the Matrix Is a Powerful Metaphor For Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 103 People

    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.

    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 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...

    Parallel Universes

    The Matrix has very many parallels to our world. I certainly believe that most of us exist under an unseen control, in fact we have bought in so much that we assist in our own oppression.  I've really become interested in the Jean Baudrillard concept of the desert of the real...

    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...

    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.

    They say univers is a big round bowl, and we are in it, whatever you send to it, it reflects back to you. If you have a positive attitude, you'll have good things in your life.
