Description
Test 2: The Matrix 1999 09/24/2013 If we are not careful the relationship of unbalance will be shifted where the technology will become  independent and humans dependent.  Question: what has that cost you? Technology? Have you missed out on friendships being made? Have you  missed out on businesses? Or have you gained from it? At what point does technology take over and will I  be wise enough to put a stop to it?  All movies reproduce the theme of the fall/ original sin Technology is getting all your information and it’s not stealing it because you are giving it away.  The matrix read your desires and gave you what you wanted, a benevolent sketch of the matrix. This was a  desirable appearance of reality.  Ex: you are giving social networks your information to feed you and provide your desires. There’s homeless people so you could feel better about yourself. This convinces the matrix is better than  the real world The machines want you to be submissive/ docile  Neo is a glitch/ random development in the program that becomes a “virus” that has been created to the  machines Basic question: what is it that you know about your reality? Most people are not curious and the computers  will keep producing that energy to keep you that way. What is your primary role in the world? What is factory farming? Criticized for taking shortcuts where they will get more money in return. In the  matrix what is being farmed is the humans which is their energy harveste
