Do you believe in the theory that the movie Matrix suggested?

How do we know that it is not true? of course I did not mean that we are in a computer program. I meant that our mind is being control by cultural education and expectations

i think the matrix i mean the movie is revealing the secret of the universe we r controled by our senses so we r not capable of doing which seems impossible. like in the in the bible adam and eve before they eat the fruit of knowledge they were immortal but as they eat that they come under the control of right and wrong (they come under the control of the matrix) and when again we will realise that we r not only this bodies we will be free again and then any thing is possible. try to understand what i am trying to tell and u will find the deep meaning...

There's a point there, but if it was true then there would be more abnormalties out there. For example, wouldn't you think something's up if you saw Smith everywhere you went. You walking around and *bam!* some person turns into Smith. That would look a little unordinary if you ask me and there would be stories about it.

yes I sometimes think that our world may be controlled by some plan or programme of which we are still unware of. It is very much possible I think.

I beleive that to be true...a baby is trained or taught how to speak & act. The family religion/belief is in there, also. When the child goes to school, he/she learns about timelines. He/she learns from his/her peer & the family social group. Repetiveness makes a habit. I really liked the movie, The Matrix. The government & other people do experiments that aren't known to the general public. Aren't soldiers being trained to not feel pain, etc? Have you heard anything about that? What was written in fictional futuristic books- written a long time ago- have come to pass. And that's kind of scary.

Hi, I even sometimes wonder if we are in fact creatures in the dream or game of another mind? But certainly I do believe that our mind is very largely controlled by our cultural background, our education and the media. I believe we only get to hear what the people in charge want us to hear, that the media are largely controlled by the people in charge and that there is no such thing as an 'objective' report. The Matrix had quite a big impact I think (particularly part 1) because lots of people got a slight feeling of 'recognition' that there may be some truth in its ideas.
