This game sucks. It's harder than it needs to be and it's full of noobs and hackers. You can't save, and you lose all your crap when you die. What's the point?
I must admit though, the graphics are pretty good.
I'm laughing out loud right now! That has to be one of the funniest things I've read in several days!
Oh man *wipes eyes* ...
And the worst part of this game? Most of the power ups are illegal!

The earliest physicists built a reality using just the tools of mathematics, music and astronomical observation.
I imagine they expected Gods objective reality was a describable Celestial harmony within their grasp using those tools.
How far did they really get?
Wouldn't surprise me if they found some 5000 year old math that was a perfect patent for fundamental particle physics.
There was that cryptogram sent to Fermilab that was partially decoded "FRANK SHOEMAKER WOULD CALL THIS NOISE".

"It gives me full control of my destiny"
Control is the ultimate illusion in this simulation. In reality, you control nothing.

I disagree. We'll leave it at that.
Neo: It's an honor to meet you.
Morpheus: No, the honor is mine. Please, come. Sit. I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole, hm?
Neo: You could say that.
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. Follow me. Apoc, are we online?
