english  Controlling Humans

DaKing, emailhegotgame@mail.com, 01.06.2003, 04:55



I am a big fan of the Matrix and after watching 2/3 movies it has jump started my brian into thinking philosophical questions about life. I will often use examples from the movies as having a text based document is easy to refer to.

My questions I post to you is that do you think these aspects control human life and hold us back from reaching maximum potential physically, spiritually, mentally if there is such a thing.

[u]Physics:[/u] Why would or should this element of our universe control us? The Architect (a character in the matrix revolutions) says in the movie to Neo:

"Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden to sedulously avoid it, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control."

Some information I can pick out of this is that physics can be measured in mathematical equtions in this world just like the entire world of the matrix. Every physical action can be recorded as a mathematical process. Why?

[u]Indifference:[/u] Everyone on this planet has been programmed someway or another to dislike something of someone else. Whether it would be colour, physical appearance, a flaw in their personality (disgusting habits included!), religion, nationality etc. If as an entire human race we could harmouneously work together without indifference we could build a magnificent place in which to live.

Probably the biggest  BURDEN from freeing the world is:

[u]Greed[/u]: Yes, this sin is a bain in itself. Money, the biggest factor in question "makes the world turn". Reality has it that money is nothing more than a man made invention for controlling our society into levels of security. The Rich, The Average, and the Poor.

An example of control which was used in real life was Communism. We all know that that was a COMPLETE failure because, there is someone controlling everything else and making decisions for everyone else.

What are your views on invisible hands controlling the human race?
