Filmen blev skrevet og instrueret af Andy og Larry Wachowski, og blev vist på lærredet for første gang d. 7 maj 1999. The Matrix er uden tvivl en af de mest succesfulde film nogensinde. Ifølge imdb.com, så har den tjent hele $203,600,000 alene i 1999, derudover vandt den 4 oscars, blandt andet for bedste redigering og lyd. Det der blandt andet gjorde filmen så populær, var de banebrydende effekter og den nyere fortælling af Det Nye Testamente. Filmen blev så populær, at ”Matrix” var et af de mest søgte ord på internettet i 1999.

Matrix

...Running head: Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix After reading the Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, I realized that it endures a significant similarity to The Matrix whereas the two share nearly identical metaphysical themes and hypothetical assumptions regarding the reality of nature, the experience in the world, and the chance of illusion. At first, the ‘two world’ theory is the main theme that goes through The Matrix and the Allegory of the Cave. The existence of two worlds is what this philosophy theorizes, mainly in Plato. The world of the senses and everyday experience is of an imagined world. An Ultimate world unruffled of Formulae is of their existing. Plato is considered by the second world to be ontologically greater to the imagined world of the senses. This theory is also found in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Gnosticism with some substantial changes. In contrary, the prisoners sat facing a wall inside a cave, which gave me the scenario that the prisoners are bound by shackles from birth in the story of the cave. In their lack of knowledge, the prisoners take these shadows for the “real things” because from birth they have only seen these shadows on the walls that had images of animals and humans carrying objects. In the development of the story, one of the prisoners is unbound and made to turn around. In the beginning, he realizes the cause of the shadows, which is caused by a flame in arrears of......

The Matrix

...The Matrix In the movie The Matrix, several analogies and philosophies run through the story, as well as the clever naming of certain characters, places, and objects. Plato’s Theory of Ideas and the Myth of the Cave Plato believed that there were two worlds that existed, the world of the senses and the world of ideas. The sensory world was the physical matter, which was always changing and does not last forever, perceived through our senses. The world of ideas is eternal, and consists of patterns which the sensory world was made from. Plato said that we cannot get true knowledge from the sensory world, because it was always changing, and true knowledge lay in the world of ideas, where we perceived through reason, and not our senses. He said that the human being had an eternal soul that existed in the world of ideas before it inhabited the physical body. When the soul sees the imperfect sensory world, it gives the soul a faint recollection of the idea world, and it longs to return and see that idea world again. The Myth of the Cave is another way Plato explained this. He said that a group of humans are in a cave facing the back wall of the cave, and behind them is a high wall blocking the outside of the cave. Some other human-like creatures hold up some figures, above the wall, and all these humans can see are the shadows on the wall. They have been tied up in this position for their whole life. Plato said that the darkness of the cave represents the sensory world,...

Killers

...Killers What does it take for someone to end a human life? There are many studies and specialists that center themselves on this question. Is it a lack of self-control? Do murderers have a distorted understanding of morals, ethics, and basic “do’s and don’ts” of traditional society? One of the most common motives for murder is anger and vengeance. In the short stories “A Rose for Emily” and “Killers,” the main characters exhibit similar motives for the murders they commit. Both people were pushed over the edge by the loss of someone close to them. They were pushed to the point of taking a human life. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Emily, a scorned and lonely woman murdered her lover because the thought of being alone was too much to handle. Emily also kept the body of her dead lover locked in a room for forty years. Not only did she kill her lover Homer, she stored his dead body in bed so she could lay with him every night. Why would a woman kill the man she loves? In the story, her lover was about to leave her and he was the only person in Emily’s life. Her controlling father was already dead, she had no family, and the town constantly gossiped about her. When her lover, Homer Barron, was going to leave her she felt betrayed. If he really loved her, why would he leave? Who was he leaving her for? He wanted to be free from her, and the best way to get back at someone who wants their freedom is to trap them. However, Emily took it one step to far.......

The Matrix

...Topic: The Matrix is an analogy to our society. The film offers a unique insight into how we perceive the world around us. Certain aspects of contemporary society often inspire films. Filmmakers usually exaggerate and bloat issues in order to position the audience to perceive the world in a certain way. The year 1999, just a year before the start of a new century, where computers and the Internet was getting more popular. The Wachowski brothers decided to make a movie to inform the world of the dangers of letting technology control our lives. The movie, The Matrix, was a film about a dystopian world where machines control everything and humans are merely a part of their system.. The main character Neo, a professional coder by morning and illegal hacker by night is dragged into a world of agents and gravity defying action. This film includes the very commonly perceived view of a working culture in our society and also shows how we sometimes forget that we are in control of our lives and all our decisions have consequences. These insights are presented through captivating and engaging scenes in the movie in order to make the viewers understand and enjoy the movie. Therefore making it a movie to remember along with its views of the world, as we know it. Ezra Taft Benson once said, “ You are free to make your choices but you are not free to choose the consequences”. Every part of the movie is filled with choices from beginning to end. Similar to how we are faced with many......

Matrix

...| Plato, Descartes, and the Matrix After obtaining knowledge from the Matrix, Plato's Allegory of the Cave or The Republic and the first Mediation from Descartes, I see that there are a few likenesses and contrasts. I would need to say that The Matrix and Plato's hole purposeful tale were more comparable because the individuals included in both stories, they existed in this present reality where they were being cheated about what the fact of the matter was. In the Matrix, once Neo saw this present reality and that all that he thought was true was really a hallucination, is very much alike to the shadows on the dividers of the surrender that the prisoners saw in Plato's Allegory of the hole. In both stories, both characters could encounter reality as well as the phony world and was given opportunity to see reality and were confounded. Nonetheless, the detainee in Plato's story in the wake of picking up this new information let others in servitude know of his recently discovered learning however felt that the first truth was less demanding to with the exception to. Then again Neo in The Matrix chose he needed to realize what the right truth was. Both characters were intrigued by figure out reality however they recognized reality in an unexpected way. Plato thought it was fundamental for the affixed man in the Allegory of the Cave required to escape from the hole to look for reality. Socrates portrays a gathering of individuals who have lived anchored to the divider of a......

The Matrix

...Similarities and Differences of The Matrix, Plato and Descartes Frederick Kinley PHIL201-C10LUO March 17, 2014 The Matrix was a film created by the Wachowski Brothers that dealt heavily with the thought of epistemology. Epistemology is a philosophy of origin, nature and limits of human knowledge. In the Matrix the limits of human knowledge was pushed with the question of reality. Is reality real? Is what we see and do true? The question was portrayed in the film by Neo a computer hacker that had a life time nagging question inside that he just could not shake. Neo met Morpheus, a leader of an organization that could help Neo answer his question. Morpheus proposed Neo a plan to follow him take the “red pill” and find the truth or take a “blue pill” and forever stay the same. Neo agrees to take the “red pill” then is launched into a world like he had never seen before. The “Matrix” was a world where humans were only living virtual reality lives. Giant computers were placing thoughts, feelings and everyday life circumstances into their minds. Through their virtual lives they could work, play and even die. Is our reality real today? Are we just victims of a larger, grander scheme? The Allegory of the Cave is a synopsis of The Republic where people live their whole lives in the opening of a cave. The prisoner’s feet and necks are chained so they cannot leave or even turn their heads. Their whole lives the only truth they......

The Matrix

...“Existentialism”. Therefore, they can decide who they are going to be. However, the people in “The Matrix” do not have free thought. Throughout the film “The Matrix”, people in the Matrix and the real world believe that they have free choice and absolute freedom to determine who they are and what makes them a success; however, they do not have freedom because they are either controlled by the AI or the circumstances of their existence. People make their own decisions in the Matrix so they tend to believe that they have freedom to determine their lives. In fact, artificial intelligence is controlling the people and feeds on them. People in the Matrix live life as a prisoner. The most pathetic true is that the prisoners do not realize they are prisoners; on the contrary, they deem themselves free. People who live in the matrix feel comfortable in the environment they grew up in. They believe what they have seen and experienced is real, but they cannot see that they are chained. For example, in “The Matrix” when Cypher is eating steak with agent Smith in the restaurant, he says, “I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious.” Cypher knows the truth that his senses in the Matrix are being deceived by AI. Sadly the people who have not been unplugged do not know that. People who lived in the Matrix do not even have the right to claim they are happy. As Griswold questioned, “what is......

Matrix

...multiply the matrix by the position vector of the point. Example: A transformation is represented by the 2 by 2 matrix M = . To find the image of the point (3, 2) under this transformation, you need to find the result of the following matrix multiplication So the coordinates of the image are (8, -1). Example 2: A rectangle has coordinates (1, 1), (4, 1), (4, 3) and (1, 3). Find the coordinates of the image of the rectangle under the transformation represented by the matrix . Solution: You could find the image of each vertex in turn by finding , etc. However, it is more efficient to multiply the transformation matrix by a rectangular matrix containing the coordinates of each vertex: . So the image has coordinates (2, 0), (11, -3), (9, -1) and (0, 2). The diagram below shows the object and the image: Any transformation that can be represented by a 2 by 2 matrix, , is called a linear transformation. 1.1 Transforming the unit square The square with coordinates O(0, 0), I(1, 0), J(0, 1) and K(1, 1) is called the unit square. Suppose we consider the image of this square under a general linear transformation as represented by the matrix : . We therefore can notice the following things: * The origin O(0, 0) is mapped to itself; * The image of the point I(1, 0) is (a, c), i.e. the first column of the transformation matrix; * The image of the point J(0, 1) is (b, d), i.e. the second column of the transformation matrix; ......
