that's mindblowing!

Much better than the "batteries" hypothesis, which by the way was a human made one, the machines never confirmed it!

My hypothesis was and still is that the machines captured humans to protect us from themselves.

As humans trying to eliminate the machines, destroyed the planet #animatrix

By following the #Assimov 's three laws of robotics, in my opinion was and is, the absolute solution to save the humanity.

I was exposed to a TikTok of somebody arguing that the machines in #TheMatrix weren’t enslaving humanity and they made the Matrix to help keep humanity going. That it’s the humans’ fault and that it’s racist because Neo is white and the comments are agreeing.

“This is the perfect interpretation, I finally understand this film”.

The comments are even perpetuating the Sophia Stewart myth as fact. I am fucking dying.

I'm not going to lie. I am very excited to have set up my R coding environment so that it looks like I'm writing code inside The Matrix.

#Baudrillard's philosophy was the fundamental ground upon which the #movie #TheMatrix was created, but Baudrillard didn't like the film and even harshly criticized the #film This video explains the whats and whys of all that.

Just finished watching The Matrix Resurrections, and holy crap that film is just straight up terrible.

The first 30 mins or so it feels like it's doing something interesting, but then the film just effectively retreads the first film, but in a comically bad way.

Some good ideas, all of it poorly executed.

Written by Mraz and production team #theMatrix (#LaurenChristy, #ScottSpock, and Graham Edwards), the song is about a good friend of Mraz's, Charlie Mingroni, being struck with cancer and how it changed Mraz's outlook on life.

The police officer is the most prominent example of a simulacrum in modern society. Cops as most people know them not only don't actually exist, but they never did. Most people learned everything they think they know about cops from a torrent of pop culture copaganda that never reflected reality.

A still from The Matrix (1999) depicting Neo pulling a hardback copy of Simulacra & Simulation (1981) by Jean Baudrillard off of her shelf. The camera lingers on the cover for a moment. As the film continues beyond the moment captured in this still, she will open the book to reveal that she has cut a hole in the center which she uses as a secret place to store disks containing the illicit hacking tools that she creates and the cash she receives in exchange for providing them to others.

It's easy to recognize many of the direct influences #GhostInTheShell has had on the #Wachowskis and #TheMatrix series, visually and thematically, like the flowing, green numbers; #Neo's slow, leg move from the end of the alley fight; the lobby shootout from the tank fight; what does being human mean?

Plus, one's self not being tied to a specific body 🏳️‍⚧️

Even with all I've learned about this #movie, I was surprised at how deep and reflective it is.

@ward @thomas The Matrix (1999) has some shot-for-shot influences from Ghost in the Shell that I really liked. There's a... SEVENTEEN? year old video (fuzzy, grainy 240p) on YouTube about it with side-by-side comparisons:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3tF7TL0Qh4

Another similar side-by-side video in slightly higher resolution with some annoying cropping:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De9bpbXBg-4

And it looks like someone put in the work of making an updated, 1080p HD version of some of the comparisons at least, thought it's not side-by-side but rather one-after-the-other:

There's a good chance you'll disagree with my take, but a deeper look at the film, why it exists, and the metatextual conversation it’s having about Hollywood, audiences, and our culture today might change your mind – and teach you a thing or two about how to push your own art to extraordinary places.

Alright, alright, here I go:

I am an able bodied #AroAce who is probably #Neurotypical

I am into #Coding and #Animation (think #Blender and #GameEngines) as well as some #Gaming #Drawing and #Music

I don’t do a lot of photography but will follow artists and writers to promote their work and fill my feed with their lovely art!

Also into #DoctorWho #HarryPotter (NOT JK tho) #TheMatrix #Scream

I’m into lots of different things, but will mostly post about current events I find interesting and random thoughts. I do a lot of reposting because I want a diverse feed (and one that isn’t constantly negative).

I will do my best to only repost toots with content descriptions, hashtags with correct case (think #ActuallyAutistic), and correct use of content warnings. I like content that will inform, humor, or be thoughtful towards others.

Feel free to send a follow request if you have interacted with me (comments or posts, maybe reposting or favoriting some of my stuff) so I know who you are. I may follow you back! I typically don’t follow celebrity accounts on this instance.

Above all, love others!
