With its revolutionary action scenes, The Matrix captures what it means to find freedom in kung fu — and Christ.
I just drafted something that says almost EXACTLY the same thing!
I'm sure there are people back in 1999 who beat us both to it, Sean, but this was the first time it stood out clearly to me.
I've been giving it some thought and consider the Matrix to be the World; or, the collective social order of humanities' comings and going in how we move about and perceive the world. It isn't realb well, not really. We all agree it is but, i cannot say so. However, you must abide by what Cesear/ Govt. What is his.
For me, the red Pill is Christ and the blue Pill is of the World; the more 'pleasurable' choice.
Morpheus, to me, maybe an pastor telling you the truth and its option vs. The world. Or maybe Moroheus the Spirit coaching and guiding you.
But, Trinity is the vessel of love in which lingers around and brings Neo to Morpheus and thus out of the Matrix; only to re-enter anew; prepared and well equipped. Later, he realized as the 'one', he has special abilities over his enemies after his first few brushes with them.
Lastly, he sees his potential after the Agent Smith sees that not only has he overcome his corruption and/ or control, he faithfully overcomes his existence for the time. ...he bends the matrix as he pleases and walks; and in faith, he flies freely. He believes.
Interesting, Donnell. I hadn't worked out how Trinity might come into play - despite that name! - so I'm glad you figured her into it.
