The Matrix - comments by Stuart Wilde in his book God's Gladiators

Confused? Watch the film the Matrix, again and again. I’ve seen it 56 times so far. There are hundreds of symbols in the film. How they got there, I don’t know. It’s irrelevant. It’s all there albeit as an allegory.
The hero, Neo, dies in room 303. Thirty-three is the number of the initiate. Zero is the feminine principle—eternity. So, 303 is the initiate embracing eternity. Neo’s bedroom, where he hacks away on his computer, is room 101. Eleven is the number of the master builder. Early on in the film, Neo is the master builder working around eternity. Look at the silver, chalice-type cup on Rinehart’s desk. Notice the gold lining of Neo and Mr. Smith’s jackets—El Dorado, the golden one; the initiate that doesn’t know he is an initiate. When Neo goes into replication he is covered in mercury. They inject the same fluid into Morpheus’ neck. Mercury is the alchemic fire.
Neo wears a plum red blanket as he climbs the stairs to meet the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar. Why plum red? Watch the large rabbits on the television behind the Indigo kids—what do they mean? Listen to the Oracle; she talks about the true nature of fate, free will, and time. Look for one of God’s Gladiators. He’s pretending to be blind. He nods when Morpheus and Neo walk out of the elevator.
Did you see the number three? It appears many times, especially in the railway station where the last fights take place. Look at the graffiti to the right of Neo as Mr. Smith throws him up against the wall. What does it say? Shadow. Whose shadow? Are Neo and Mr. Smith one and the same?
The Matrix is the story of the Holy Trinity. Morpheus is God the father. Neo is the son. He is referred to as Jesus several times in the film, though the reference is masked. The female character Trinity is the divine goddess, Mary Magdalene, the feminine principle that was excluded from our Holy Trinity by the male writers of Christian dogma. The Christian idea of the Holy Ghost is a concoction—misinformation used to disempower the female’s rightful place at the top of the trinity. There is no Holy Ghost. Ghosts are the astral image of dead people. The idea is pure drivel.
The Matrix tells the time-old story of the death and the resurrection of the initiate.
The filmmaker’s rendition of the Matrix as green symbols that tumble down the computer screen is a fairly good effort. Though the real thing doesn’t drop in straight lines as digits on a screen, and it flows horizontally as well as vertically. Though it drifts from the ceiling downward it does travel upwards—but only in rare situations. Most of it travels diagonally across your vision in lines or groups of lines that form bands several inches wide. In part, the real thing moves much faster than in the film, though in other aspects of itself it travels much slower. There is no overall uniform speed.
In the morph of solidity, past the Matrix, are vortexes of energy that lead to other dimensions. The bending walls at the end of the film, after Neo stops the incoming bullets, are very accurate.
What does it all mean? It means that something up there loves us and is trying to get us to open our eyes and see for the first time. When Neo is told about the nature of the Matrix and the invisible control over humanity he throws up. The Sentinels exist in our world, and are on the side of the controllers, but I’ve never seen any that look like those in the film. The fields upon fields that contain the pods where humans are grown are not accurate. But the idea that we are energy that is used to sustain this evolution, as well as other evolutions, is very accurate.
It’s all there in the film. Goodness knows how it got there. From deep inside the filmmakers’ souls I’d imagine, where all things exist as one. Someone, somewhere is talking about the demise of the Matrix and our escape. The key to the film is at the end after Neo has been shot. Trinity breathes over him and she says, “I am not afraid anymore… so you see, you can’t be dead, you can’t be, because I love you. You hear me? I love you.” Then she kisses him and says, “Now get up.” It’s the most beautiful scene in the film. It’s where the love of the goddess revives the comatose god. She resurrects the wounded male (the ego) and kisses him, bringing him back to life. The ability is in her selflessness. It’s part of her compassion, her eternal kindness. Males can do the same when they stand inside the feminine spirit that is within them.
The resurrection is the same for you as it is for Neo in the film. Once you are no longer scared, the forces of control can’t feed off you. Their hold over you and your life breaks down. Watch the Matrix even if you have seen it before. It’s all in there, at least in a rudimentary form.

SOOO true!

The beings who keep us in fear, feed on those emotions... like candy.

9/11 was a major feeding event.

i will have to revisit and watch these films it has been awhile. i have read several interpretations of this film, and all are contradictory. ummm, just like the old testament? will say, think i need a decoding list and lots of time to think it thru. a list for both sides of issue, as it seems these films were interepreted in opposite.

and, i still have questions, re: bible, venus-lucifer-jesus-morning star-bright star-twin stars....etc.

i am remembering that the films had strange release times/dates, would have to go back and search, and not that impt to me now, but seems like at least 2 were released in middle of week, on weds which is strange date for new film releases? also, one near an eclipse or something, it was beginning of nov ? this would lead me to believe that the brothers making the film were more into numbers and astronomy/logy, etc, which would make me think of the masons, tptb, that they were riding on the coattails of this production, so what i see may be their version?

to me it is confusing, but maybe more about pulling back the curtain, and taking a look at who and why, vs the script first.

Yup, it tells the Luciferion version of the Kingdom, the reality.

No, Lucifer is talking about the demise of the Matrix (Vineyard) and our "escape". The hell of all of this is that the very shit hole world here to be "escaped" has come to this condition by the very hand of the one now "helping" everyone to "escape".

No, Lucifer's "ability" is in her cluelessness. (I'm talking the reality, not Lucifer's version here) Without the loins of these witless "goddesses" Lucifer's rebellion would have never gotten off the ground. The rest of the above is nothing more than Luciferion commentary on these films preaching his story. The female as the top of the "God" heap is pure nonsense straight from Lucifer. The "God" refered to is both male and female incombination, there is no "lead" gender in the "Father" as some call "Him".

The Gospel according to Neo

Theologians and pop-culture experts see 'The Matrix' as a phenomenon shaping public opinion about religion

By Josh Burek | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor | From the May 09, 2003 edition

In a film era long gone, the Bible was a major player. Charlton Heston and Jimmy Stewart starred in movies that directly drew on themes of Bible history and Christian redemption.

Hollywood treats religion a bit differently these days. Mel Gibson's "The Passion," aside, most A-list stars aren't lining up to play the carpenter from Nazareth. But some of Hollywood's most enduring science-fiction films have borrowed greatly from his story.

Casting Keanu Reeves as a Christlike figure in "The Matrix" trilogy may seem blasphemous, but it's not new. "Star Wars" didn't push the idea of a Jedi Jesus, but many fans felt that it freely mixed myth and religion. And some critics said "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" relied heavily on the account of Christ's passion - a suggestion that director Steven Spielberg, who is Jewish, rejected. More recent films, from "Signs" to "Contact" have used a sci-fi setting to discuss serious questions of faith.

But where previous films made vague references to the Christian story, "The Matrix," some theologians argue, appeals directly to the heart of Christian identity. Its script, however, draws on Platonic philosophy, Greek mythology, Buddhism, and postmodernism, religious experts say.

Its high-octane blend of comic-book action and lofty metaphysics fueled box-office sales in 1999 to more than $450 million worldwide. But it also created theological tension about the movie's symbolism. And with "The Matrix Reloaded" due out next week, the debate is likely to intensify over different interpretations of the trilogy.

"There's two ways to look at this from a Christian perspective," says Glenn Yeffeth, editor of the book "Taking the Red Pill: Science, Philosophy, and Religion in The Matrix." "One is that it's retelling the story of Christ," he says. "The other way to look at it is a very violent film filled with garden-variety blasphemy that exploits people's resonance with the Christian narrative to fool people into a story that is fundamentally atheistic."

Both sides see a movie phenomenon that, for better or worse, is shaping public thought about religion.

"The Matrix" is compelling people to examine the plurality of religions versus the unity of truth, says cultural critic Read Mercer Schuchardt. Like the movie's characters, who strive to understand what is real, Matrix fans are hoping the trilogy's second installment will help them unravel the film's tangled symbolism, say film experts.

Earnest effort to deconstruct the movie began with a question. On Superbowl Sunday 1999, "Matrix" filmmakers tantalized TV viewers with a commercial trailer that asked, "What is the Matrix?" After the film made its auspicious Easter debut, "Matrix" viewers began answering the clever marketing query in personal terms. Sci-fi fans, philosophers, Buddhists, and even evangelical Christians have found resonant themes in the story.

"There are hundreds of Matrix [websites] out there, and they're not about how cute Keanu Reeves looks," says Mr. Yeffeth. "The Christian parallels, the philosophical underpinnings - this is a movie that ... captures people's intellectual imagination."

Some observers, however, are skeptical about the film's ability to convey the profound. A number of critics panned the first "Matrix" for being too pretentious. And some viewers balked at the marriage of kung fu fight scenes with a "Philosophy for Dummies" script.

The film's creators, brothers Larry and Andy Wachowski, have been remarkably tight-lipped about their vision for the trilogy. But these comic-book aficionados have pulled back the curtain enough to reveal which levers they are pulling.

"We're interested in mythology, theology, and, to a certain extent, higher-level mathematics," Larry told Time in 1999. In a Warner Bros. Web chat that year, they were asked to what extent their allusions to myths and philosophy were intentional. "All of it," they said.

Like all myths, "The Matrix" is first and foremost a story. By day, Thomas Anderson (Reeves) is a cubicle-bound software programmer. By night, he's a computer hacker known as Neo with troubling questions about reality. A rebel group led by Morpheus recruits Neo and offers him a chance to discover the truth about the Matrix.

Neo is unplugged from the Matrix and realizes that humans are slaves to an empire of man-made, intelligent machines. The Matrix is a virtual-reality program hard-wired into the human brain to deceive mankind about this truth. Neo reluctantly accepts his mission to free the human race.

No one is seriously treating the script as a Neo-New Testament. But "The Matrix" story has stirred debate within the Christian community.

Author and dedicated Christian Kristenea LaVelle hoped her scriptural exegesis of the film, "The Reality Within the Matrix," would inspire Christians to apply the movie's gospel message to their own lives. Reaction to her book, however, has been mixed. A Canadian pastor contacted her to ask if he could use "The Matrix" as a keynote for evangelical outreach to teenagers. But she also encountered negative feedback at a book signing - in a Christian bookstore.

The film's bullet-laden violence and strong language, along with Eastern religious influences, she acknowledges, are unsettling to some Christians. But she has high hopes for the sequels. "If you can see a way through those things and really pick out the good stuff ... any Christian could apply those things to life and grow from it."

Mrs. LaVelle says that "The Matrix" expresses the basic idea of Christian salvation. "The whole idea of being 'awakened' or 'un-plugged' is a reference to salvation." She recognizes, however, that her view is not universally accepted.

David Frankfurter, for one, disagrees. "I'd resist the notion of [Neo] as having anything to do with Jesus," says the professor of history and religious studies at the University of New Hampshire. "He's the classic hero figure from early Jewish literature."

Mr. Frankfurter and other religious experts say "The Matrix" does not represent orthodox Christianity nearly as much as Gnostic Christianity.

Gnosticism never developed a well-defined theology, but it depicts Jesus as a hero figure who saves mankind through "gnosis," or esoteric knowledge. In the Gnostic philosophy, the physical world is not part of God's creation, but a manifestation of a lower god - a nightmarish reality that imprisons mankind, say religious experts. Gnostics believed they could achieve salvation, not by overcoming evil and sin with God's grace, but by learning the "higher knowledge" about reality.

Gnostic threads are present in many religious traditions, including Sufism and Buddhism. As woven by "The Matrix," these threads tie together current concerns with an ancient knot.

"All of this stuff has been bouncing around in the human brain for centuries. When it comes into this hip new iteration in the cyberworld, it all sounds familiar," says Robert Thompson, professor of television and popular culture at Syracuse University in New York.

Whereas the bestselling "Left Behind" book series about judgment day plays on orthodox Christian fears of an arrival of the Antichrist, some observers say "The Matrix" uses Gnostic concepts to convey an equally frightful - but perhaps more tangible - prospect: technology's domination over mankind.

The success of both, however, may be due to the seductive power of conspiracy theories.

"The 'Left Behind' series is working very neatly with deep cultural fears about organized conspiracy," Frankfurter says. "[In 'The Matrix'], you have the ultimate conspiracy. We are all battery cells that are imaging our lives. And it also just plugs in to the ultimate conspiracy fear: the fear of technology."

Matrix Glossary

Birth: When he is "unplugged" from the Matrix, Neo resembles a newborn. Once his "umbilical cords" are removed, we see that he is hairless, confused, and covered in a type of amniotic fluid. He falls down a long tube and into a pool of water. After this presumed baptism, he is carried up, with his limp body making a cross silhouette. Neo had to be "born again" before he could begin his mission.

Buddhism: The chief problem faced by humanity, according to Buddhist thought, is not sin or evil: it's ignorance of the true reality. The lack of an explicit divine being and references to "focus," "path," and "free your mind" also smack of Buddhist influence. Matrix rebels download truth and reprogram their minds to achieve salvation.

Cypher: The name of this traitor who excels at Matrix code means, according to Webster's Dictionary: Zero...a person or thing of no importance or identity...a system of secret writing based on a key. His character has many parallels to Judas. At one point he exclaims, "Whoa, Neo. You scared the bejeezus out of me."

Evil: Agent Smith tells Morpheus that the original Matrix world was "designed to be a perfect human world." No one accepted the program, he explains, because "human beings define their reality through misery and suffering." By drawing on parts of Genesis and comparing humans to a virus, Smith establishes evil as a natural, intrinsic state of human nature.

God: God does make a cameo in The Matrix only as an expletive from Trinity. Yet the word "miracle" is used in clear cases to signify the need - and reality - of divine intervention. But there's no implied sense of a covenant between God and man.

Jesus Christ: The name Jesus is often used in association with Neo, most explicitly when Choi, a drug user, thanks Neo for providing him with illicit software. "Hallelujah. You're my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ."

Matrix: Literally, a computer program used to imprison mankind. According to Webster's, "matrix" means: 1) orig., the womb; uterus 2) that within which, or within and from which, something originates, takes form, or develops. At its heart, The Matrix is a story about birth and creation.

Morpheus: Neo's mentor. Some observers identity him with John the Baptist, since both men were appointed to prepare the way for a messiah. In Greek mythology, Morpheus, the son of Hypnos, was the god of dreams.

Music: The final song, played by Rage Against The Machine, is "Wake Up."

Neo: The messiah. This is Thomas Anderson's virtual name. Literally meaning "new," Neo is also referred to as the "One," which is an anagram for Neo.

Nebuchadnezzar: Morpheus's ship. This figure referenced in the Book of Daniel was the powerful king of ancient Babylon who suffered from troubling dreams. The name literally means "Nebo, protect the crown."

Numerology: Neo's apartment number is 101, suggesting that he's "the one." Neo is shot in apartment number 303, and after 72 seconds (72 hours = 3 days), he rises again.

Phone calls: In keeping with prophetic tradition, Neo is "called" to his task, not by a burning bush, but a FedEx employee. Their brief exchange - "Thomas Anderson?" | "Yeah, that's me." - mirrors Bible language constructions used to signify special identity.

Postmodernism: Neo hides his illicit software within a chapter titled "On Nihilism" within a volume called "Simulacra and Simulation," by Jean Baudrillard. This seminal work of postmodernism advances the idea of a copy without an original. The Wachowski brothers assigned Keanu Reeves to read this book before filming began.

Thomas Anderson: The Apostle Thomas was also called Didymus, which in Greek means "twin" or "double." Anderson means "son of man," one of the titles Jesus uses for himself. The twin names suggest his dual nature. As "Mr. Anderson," he is vulnerable to the powers of the evil agents. As "Neo," he has dominion over them.

Trinity: Her kiss restores Neo from death. The doctrine of the three modes of God is central to Christian orthodoxy, yet the word "trinity" never actually appears in the Bible. Neo deepens the mystery of who Trinity is when he says to her, "I just thought, um...you were a guy."

Logos: The altered studio logo at the opening of the film may be highly significant. The Matrix-coded WB letters could simply be the Wachowski brothers thumbing their nose at the Warner Bros. But by altering the logo - from the Greek term "logos," for word - the film's opening does two things. First, it corrupts the Gospel of John, which begins with "In the beginning was the Word...". Second, it asserts that metaphysical meaning can be gleaned by mining deep into words, or code.

Zion: The last human city. In the Old Testament, Zion refers to the royal capital of David. Matrix agents desire the codes to Zion above all else.

I enjoyed the first movie,
though even it was embarrassingly full of symbolism and propaganda.
From there,
the next two films were nauseatingly repetitive of this agenda,
to the point that a clear message was trying to be propagandized,
and they sucked bad in general.
It was an overkill of symboolic propaganda agenda by the film makers,
and their real hidden backers.

Wahya says
"The first Matrix movie seemed to be musing about what if Buddhism was messianic.

But the second film shifted in ideology towards gnostic ideas and even masonic/luciferian concepts.

The third hinted at Mormonism's claim that Jesus and Satan are brothers with the relationship of Neo and Agent Smith."
