Inky-'s sig I just dont get it.

There is no spoon.

Whats up with that??

It’s from the Matrix, I think. The scene where they’re at the prophet’s apartment. There’s a kid that bends a spoon with his mind, and says something to that effect.

'course, I could be completely wrong.

Drat, Mr. Cynical, I knew that one (unless Inky- contradicts).


Oh yeah… i remember that. That could be it.

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Spoon boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself

Yep, thats it.

The point of the exchange (in the movie) was that the external world was illusory and dependant on our preconcieved ideas. A very Zen concept.
