The Matrix Trilogy
Sometimes it is beneficial to watch a movie outside of its intended time frame in order to understand its meaning. I believe that when a visionary
writes, he or she is drawing on pieces from the future, sometimes without realizing it. In addition, a lot of what is thought to be science fiction is
actually an expansion on the present culture, so watching older movies can give you an insight into what life was like in the past.
I was wondering why some people have mental blocks when it comes to seeing the future, and I figured out why.
The Oracle said we have already made our choices, we are here to understand why. And that we can't see past the choices we don't understand. This
tells me that none of us are able to see what is coming in the future because it is past our comprehension.
I have to mention quantum physics again. I believe that if you had made a choice already, then you would not be able to see where that choice leads.
But if you have not made a choice, you can see the options.
If The Matrix was meant to foreshadow an age of enlightenment and figuring out who we really are, which I would argue happened in the years following
its release, then The Matrix: Reloaded is meant to depict the time period we have recently entered. There are lessons in that movie that I never
picked up on before, because I saw it in the wrong era.
I will give you one example. When Morpheus told of the prophecy and "The One" I used to believe him and think that everyone else was getting in his
way. Now, when I watch the movie, I tend to connect more with the people who think he is crazy.
Art is something that is hardly understood. A lot of what an artist depicts, he or she has no idea of the true meaning, but is accessing a realm
beyond our understanding. The duty of an artist is to express what they encounter in the other realm. Therefore, their art may have meaning in it that
they are not aware of.
Maybe it is because the artist has not made his choices and therefore has the freedom to see the future.
Another very important lesson that The Matrix: Reloaded mentions is the idea that the matrix repeats itself, over and over again.
I have not watched The Matrix: Revolutions yet, but I am guessing it will have to do with the next time period, where we awaken and fight the machines
(which represent, well, human machines basically) and the final overthrow of the system, even after many cycles.
Note: I have watched The Matrix: Revolutions and it seems to depict the time period we are about to enter.
