Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. 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. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Has anyone noticed that behind the “door” is what comes out in the matrix.. does that mean that we have to open our minds to the possibilities of us living in the matrix..?
The film The Matrix is actually based on an enlightenment narrative, meaning: the code of “the matrix” itself within the film represents The Wheel Of Dharma within Buddhism, Original Sin within Christianity, Sharia within Islam, Metaphysics within Western Philosophy. It is, as Morpheus calls it, the real world.
So, even though in the film the real world is a world in which humans are slaves to machines, every major religion presents a similar problem to its adherents, an obstacle that keeps them from achieving a higher consciousness. And, like Neo, there is also a Messiah within every major religion that points the way to a method of attaining this higher consciousness, a method that adherents take up as their spiritual practice.
