All very good responses. In regards to the matrix being reality, here is something to think about. In the matrix movie, the humans are serving as
batteries for the race of machines, humans created in pods for that sole purpose. In these pods, humans are given a reality that is simultaneous
throughout, a consensus established by the machines/matrix attached to the humans' brains, a consensus fed to the humans' brains, but they
experience it in pods. Taking this idea into account, we could apply something similar to our reality.
It may be possible that we ourselves are serving a matrix. Think of our selves as when we learn. We are collecting, into our brains, information. We
are collecting information as sensual impressions stored into our brains. It has been stated and theorized that everything we learn or sense is stored
forever in our brains, yet some may become sub-conscious in which it remains latent. Now that we have collected and learned about reality as
information in our brains, we then are able to communicate with other people through an information exchange, all 1's and 0's exchanging with each
other. So, there is information, perhaps as an energy unto itself, moving in us and through us, constantly on the move. Now comes the technology.
In order for the technology to work, it requires commands from us. Take the internet as an example. In order to animate the internet, we are required
to provide information from our brains as 1's and 0's. As a result of this, information, as those 1's and 0's, has effectively moved from our
brains to a new "host", the internet. Now, as a result of this, the internet may perhaps become living or somewhat logical as a human operates with
that same information. What this goes to show is that we are now creating our very own matrix, in which we are becoming entangled in something we are
creating. We are beginning to animate the technology because we are providing it with the same food our brains use, the information of 1's and 0's.
The matrix is truly becoming a reality, if it is not already so.
Perhaps the movie itself was meant to be prohetic, apart from the notion that our reality may already be so. This process can be applied to all our
