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.
No more war, depression, food shortage #thematrix
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.
#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. It's worth listening until the end through and past the part where the contributors are thanked.

The Matrix (1999) -
This is your last chance. After this, there's 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.
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.
Switch 2: Graphics similar to PS5 and Xbox Series at Gamescom
Nintendo showed some developers the new console Switch 2 (behind closed doors) with The Matrix Awakens and a version with improved graphics of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Ostdeutsche erwachten aus einer Simulation. Mehr oder weniger freiwillig. Und mehr oder weniger haben Zion erreicht. Andere wollen wie Cypher ihr saftiges Steak zurück.
edit: Manche glauben sogar, Zion ist wieder nichts als eine Simulation, nur ein Abklingbecken und nicht die "echte" Realität.
"Complicated" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter #AvrilLavigne from her debut album, #LetGo (2002). The #ballad was released as her debut single and the lead single from the album on 11 March 2002 by #AristaRecords. Lavigne and production team #theMatrix (#LaurenChristy, #ScottSpock, and Graham Edwards) are credited as writers. Production on the song was helmed by the Matrix. According to Lavigne.
If you are a queer artist, or know a queer artist, please get in touch! I have more ideas for commissions than I can find people to commission.
Bonus points if you're interested in any of:
- Star Trek
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Matrix
- Studio Ghibli
- *waves hands broadly* the sapphic aesthetic
Are you able to explain? We cannot access ABC, its served via USA-Akamai-based servers.
Apparently Goog, MicroShaft, ScAmazon and FApple #ads on almost every ad break, sometimes even FBook! In 2021 #ScomoMarketing allowed FB and Goog to bribe #ourABC — called it something like #FacebookRefriendedAustralia™.
People seemed to lap it up.
Can we unplug from #TheMatrix, do you think?
"The Remedy (I Won't Worry)" is the debut single of American singer-songwriter #JasonMraz from his debut album, #WaitingForMyRocketToCome (2002). 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. Occasionally, while performing this song during his shows.
"Sometimes, a filmmaker such as Lana Wachowski has to walk into a major studio and suicide bomb her own art’s legacy:
Read: "THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS Is One of the Greatest Blockbusters of the 21st Century"
> The mechanism for enslavement is the old school mass accumulation of wealth
"We have survived by hiding from them, and by running from them. But they are the gatekeepers. They are guarding all the doors, they are holding all the keys. Which means that sooner or later, someone is going to have to fight them."
Morpheus, '#TheMatrix', 1999
Ever more pervasive and intrusive surveillance tech in everyday communication gear.
Probably illegal in some countries, as it could be used to spy on other people.
In combination with #AI, this tech could make the surveillance gear of #1984, #MinorityReport, and even #TheMatrix look 2nd rate.
Also, the ,#embodiment, seen as a necessary step towards General Artificial Intelligence, could make a big leap forward in the medium term, as it...
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.
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.
Definitely worth a watch 👍🏿
@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:
Another similar side-by-side video in slightly higher resolution with some annoying cropping:
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:
IT’S HERE IT’S HERE
Who wants an fantastic in-depth analysis of The Matrix series through a transgender lens by extremely excellent human @tillybridges? YOU DO!
Whole lotta people who said they took the red pill went on to choose the blue checkmark.
Morpheus has always been the real bad-ass IMO. Everything about him is "keep going as farther as you can until you're left with nothing but your existence." Watch him get into a fight he knew he would certainly lose ->

That'll do for now, likely missing a bunch but can add as I remember
'THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS Is One of the Greatest Blockbusters of the 21st Century'
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.
Mistigram: it sounds like a movie trailer -- "In a machine world... created by machine minds... built by machine men... can one TRULY call themselves free?" (One hero... is about to find out!) This #ANSIart screen, a small-scale meditation on AI themes incorporating imagery reminiscent of #theMatrix, was drawn by @TheGreenHerring, two of whose pieces were included in last month's science fiction-themed MIST0523 collection in their artpack debut!
Some days, I could just jump off a cliff.
This reality is fast becoming an amalgamate of all the negative #utopias I read years ago:
#Wargames, #TheCompleteRobot, #Terminator including its #Skynet,
Hopefully, we are not also heading for #TheMinorityReport already (#AGI?)
These are only the ones out of the top of my head.
This #toot deserves A LOT more attention.
If you aren't a #Ludite, you will at least consider becoming one afterwards.
NEW ESSAY: How to World-Build Like a Wachowski
The first eight pages of THE MATRIX (1999) script provide a MasterClass in how to introduce a complicated world.
The incredible @ec0 wrote about their quest to recreate Neo’s Hi-Fi system from The Matrix and it is such a joy to read about someone digging deep into their interests and generally having a good time putting together something that looks cool: https://spooky.computer/post/the-perfect-hacker-2000s-hifi/
Alright, alright, here I go:
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!
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!
