Hello everyone,
What if the matrix is real?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Do you think the Warshosky's were kidding were kidding when they made those movies?

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

People in the past wrote novels to make a point, why do you think people today who make movies are not also making a point?

Are you indian? I heard someone said that we are in a god's dream according to the indians.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

That is correct. This is a dream within a dream. I am not Indian but I am heavily influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

Because my father was. He introduced me to many of the ideas. At first I laughed. The Taoists say when the foolish man first hears of the Tao ( the way ) he laughs out loud. They also say the the oxen are slow but the earth is patient. So I eventually came around to his way.

How about christianity? Do you believe in that?

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

I was raised as a Christian. I was an altar boy and spoke Latin. I thought I might make my way to the priesthood. I just found a better way is all for me. That way is fine for many other people.

You spoke Latin? I know two words and they are Rex and Regina. That's all.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

We were required to learn some. It is Ecclesiastic Latin and somewhat different in pronunciation. The last time I heard those words I did not immediately recognize them.

So what do you think is left after we die?

We do not die. We pass into transition from one state to another. As Yoda says, luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

Finally! Someone that thinks the same as me. I believe once our physical body dies our spiritual self will remain. Both Hinduism and Buddhism talk about reincarnation right? But the bible don't. I'm not sure what I should believe.

They are not the only ones, much of their people have spread to the West. I am a student of the Bible too and just let me say it is not my intention to insult or challenge anyone's faith in it but as I understand it several books have been removed from it.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

What I believe : God isn't the one who wrote the bible nor any other religious book. People did, and it is most properly changed by people for thousands of time now (We won't know). It's not god's word, it's the people who wrote it.

Re: What if : The matrix is real?

The actual author of that book and some others is a hot subject. Being from Nevada I am sort of biased in our interpretation.

It has a determinant?

It is not a mathematics term. It does not have a determinant.
