I watched The Matrix last night, and it struck me with much humor. To me, the whole thing reminded me (vaguely at points, but strongly at others) of various points in the Bible. It’s kind of out of order, so I’ll just write here my thoughts. Please, tell me what you think, if I’m crazy for thinking this, or you have other thoughts about it.
[ul][li]Neo (Keanu Reeves) was a reincarnation of sorts, having been in the real world and started to bring people to reality (how, I have no idea: How did he realize he was in a dream at first?) This reminds me of Jesus, and he’s still due for his Second Coming I hear, to free humanity from evil’s grasp.[/li][li]At the end, Neo dies for a very short time, then is alive again. This reminds me of Jesus and Easter and him coming back to life after three days.[/li][li]The city of humans in the middle of the earth was called Zion. Coincidence?[/li][li]Everyone was living in a dream world. They were being rescued by those who knew what was really going on, sometimes against their will (they’d take the pill, but they’d be upset later). The Christians wander around recruiting people, and those in other countries which have their own faith are made to know the real truth.[/li][li]Morphius and all those people decided that the year was wrong, and tried to find out what time it really was. The Christian folks made their own system of numbering years and spread the word about what year it really was.[/ul][/li]
Well? I’m sorry, these are just my views, and nobody I know agrees, but I wanted to share and find other folks’ opinions on the matter.
