The Matrix: Shackles for the Mind
There are movies out there that every time you watch them you catch something new- something that you hadn't noticed when you watched it previously, something that you didn't remember, or perhaps didn't recognize for what it was. Some times when you watch a movie - even one that you've seen many times before- when you literally have a huge WOW moment when suddenly you "get it".
I'm currently working through another abscessed tooth (*sigh* yea, know!), so today I was taking it easy. Nick and I sat in bed and watched a movie.
There were a few times that we paused the movie and just looked at each other and laughed. There is a subtlety in a couple of parts that I hadn't "gotten" the last time we'd watched the movie, a few moments of extreme clarity that really WOW'ed me.
No, I don't think that we are living in a world controlled by the machines, lol. But if you were to substitute a few words in the dialogue, for example, instead of "the machines", insert the word "the controllers"...?
Our "controllers may not be machines, yet the the world that we live in is no less of an illusion. A mirage that has been created to trick us into thinking we are "free". There are so many comparisons to our own world, and the "reality" that the controllers have created for us to live in, that we can absolutely see the matrix surrounds us daily.
"Copper Top" is what Neo is called by Switch. A battery. Battery = Energy.
Some might think this is an over exaggeration, and yet, this is EXACTLY what the "controllers" have done. "They" have stolen our energy and kept the people in shackles for the mind. All "their" templates are to control us and to hide from us truth of what we really are: I AM. UNLIMITED. Our created reality is NOT actually "Reality" at all. It is a construct. A false facade to veil the REALITY that IS.
Watch The Matrix again. It's closer to the truth than the world thinks.
Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. 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?
Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is? The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember, all I'm offering is the truth, nothing more.
