I am Morpheus

There are two fundamental things if you want to know all about the movie Matrix:
1. Its not made for girls and dont watch it with girls.
2. Girls will pakka say, "We don't watch such crappy movies!!!"

Anyways I took this stupid quiz about some Matrix character. I was jobless in office.

You are Morpheus, one of the leaders of the Resistance. And suffice to say, you are one bad-ass mofo. You can kick the One's ass, you can break through walls, and you can somehow survive truth serum and torture. My hats off to you! Charismatic and a great leader, you can inspire your peers to attempt the impossible, and make it possible.Packing a katana in the sequel, you should be seeing pleeenty of action!"You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes..." Take this quiz!


I am totally obsessed with The Matrix. Few days back I went out for lunch with my colleagues and one of my colleagues (who happens to be a girl) said, "I want to watch Krissh (Hritick's new movie). They say its a copy of Matrix." Me and my boss were, "WHAT??? EXCUSE ME YOU CAN'T COPY MATRIX. MATRIX IS A PHILOSOPHY."

Girls today I will give you funda about the movie Matrix so that you all get some sense and dont say again, "They are again making a copy of Matrix in Bollywood"

The year is something like 2199. The humans have been removed from the surface of earth by the machines. Now these machines which we humans made and gave them artificial intelligence have become super duper intelligent and they kill every human.

There is this one leader called Morpheus who believes that there is this stud guy Neo, who can defeate the machines and kick their ass. The movie revolves around these two characters. The first part is making Neo believe in himself that he can do things he cant even imagine he could do.

Think of life like this, why is the letter "W" like "W" and not like anything else?? Because at some point of time, someone wrote it this way and he decided that everyone should write this way. Now why do you see your cursor move when you move your mouse? Because someone wrote a program and decided this is the way it should happen.

Lets go back a little. Around the middle of 21st century, the machines were becoming more and more intelligent after AI came in. The machines or robots decided that they need more respect and should be treated as equals as humans. (Watch Animatrix for more information) The humans could not see this. The machines revolted. WAR between humans and machines started. The humans knew that sun was the biggest source of energy for the machines, so decided to cover the whole of earth with a black cloud. But the machines were intelligent enough and looked for alternate source of energy. And in 2199 (the year the movie is based) the humans are either born in Xion (the only surviving city on earth) or they are grown by machines. The human protients are source of energy for the machines. The humans are bron and made to sleep and they live in a dream world and are programmed to do what they are asked to do. So your life and my life is nothing but a cursor on the monitor because I am progarmmed to do that.

Morpheues wants Neo to believe in himself and see that everything is just a program and even the bullet which is going to hit you is a program. If you can over write that program then the bullet will not hit you. Thats what happens at the end of the first part.

The second part is like some funde where Neo meets the Architect of the Matrix. Its like the cursor on the screen is meeting the Windows program file manager or something like that. Oracle gives him funde about how Smith has become a corrupted program and is over writing every program but no one can stop him because Neo had over written him in 1st part. So something happened to the program Smith and he has now become a virus which is equal to (-1)X Neo. So to destroy Smith Neo has to die.

This is what he bargains for when he meets "Boss of The Machines". Because the program Smith has become very powerful and is now out of control of the machines Neo asks for peace between Machines & Humans and in return he will over write Smith.

So Neo destroys himself and brings peace to the fight between humans and machines (end of third part).

Kahani Khatam. Paisa Hajam. Dukan Band. Shutter Down.

Its just the begining.

Very honest virdi bhai. A quality unseen among matrix funda-putters. They read up stuff from the net and then preach it like their own understanding.

I never understood matrix even after all the funda sessions, but have been subjected to worst fundaa sessions by those who want to help me in this regard.

virdi 2:58 PM, May 16, 2006  

Nalla>> Abe yaar you have so many questions when you read something in the internet... And you dont get answers for those...

Funda session mein u can listen to what others have to say, then you can give your own funde or take funde... Most of the mere case mein TAKE FUNDE hi hota tha... ;-)

b.t.w next time i will put funde on Matrix to you... Bach ke rehna...

Abe ghar kaab ja raha hai??

MATRIX.. Wah wah! I remember discussing it in detail with all friends...everyone had a different viewpoint then.. but only after repeated viewings, stuff got clear :|

Raysofsun,  4:42 PM, May 17, 2006  

Yawn....:P

Janefield 9:48 AM, May 18, 2006  

Praaji did u watch Ice Age finally?

Jay 2:48 PM, May 19, 2006  

Oh that strikes a chord! matrix was a milestone in film making!

The Smiling Girl 9:49 AM, May 24, 2006  

Aha.. maine Matrix 1 and 2 dekha hain lekin sachi mein meri samajh mein nahi aaya tha woh tab.
I tried asking the guys with whom I went to the movie and got shooed off...
Now I understand why there are so many babies in the tube like thingy and what Oracle tells Neo guy.
But I dont understand the existence of that Indian family in the train (Is it in Matrix 2 or 3??? I think I saw 3 too!!! Neo dies in that right???)
And Trinity and Neo have a thing going between them, right?
And Neo is a human, no.. how come he also has that hole-kinda-thingy behind his head???
Uffo.. itne saare sawal... sochne pe mera bheja fry ho raha hain... :)

But I shud say that Keanu and that Trinity woman just rock.. specially that lady.. I just loved her in that movie.

And thanks for this enlightenment, Virdi saab...:)
