From The Doors to the Matrix

Jim Morrison was early interested in literature, he excelled at school, and he had an IQ of 149. Morrison studied theatre arts at the University of California.

His band’s name was taken from Aldous Huxley’s book on mescaline, The Doors of Perception, which quoted William Blake’s poem (“If the doors of perception were cleansed / all things would appear infinite”).

Later he quoted “There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.”

Then you’ve got his point of view, I wish.  But what’s the Matrix?!

The matrix described as a screen which block the real truth and leave us with unknown and uncertainty on the other side of it. In the film, the code that comprises the Matrix itself is frequently represented as downward-flowing green characters. This code includes mirror images of half-width kana characters and Western Latin letters and numerals. In one scene, the pattern of trickling rain on a window being cleaned resembles this code.

Behind the doors are known as same as behind of the Matrix. That’s point.

In Buddhist theology, a man named Siddhartha attained enlightenment (freedom from suffering) and became known as the Buddha, which means “the Enlightened One.”

In Hinduism, the word Maya refers to the belief or philosophy that “the visible world is an illusion that clouds the reality of absolute oneness.” This belief is a crucial step in attaining enlightenment.

In Hinduism and Buddhism, samara (reincarnation) refers to the continuous circle of life, death, and rebirth. The word rebirth can also simply refer to a “renewed existence, activity or growth.” In the dictionary, “Neo” is listed a combining form meaning “new,” “recent,” “revived,” and “modified.” Of course, in the movie, Neo dies and comes back (is reborn) with the ability to change the Matrix.

  • Trinity: I know why you’re here, Neo. I know what you’ve been doing… why you hardly sleep, why you live alone and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You’re looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn’t really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It’s the question, Neo. It’s the question that drives us. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.
  • Neo: What is the Matrix?
  • Trinity: The answer is out there, Neo, and it’s looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.

That’s not for Neo only but you will know the truth if you will. This is just a rope which you can start pulling.
