Comments: I think your parallels are well-constructed. However, I think that if you decide to base your analysis strictly on Christianity, that you are losing a lot of philosophical content that would be evident with the Gnostics and the Tibetan Buddhist ideology. "Ma rig gnyid skrog" - Awakening from the Sleep of Ignorance. Good start, tho.

Comments: Well next time I see the movie I will be looking at in a different way and from the way it looks like this is a very intersesting prespective. I just have to say why do people want to see two sequels all it would be would be ass kicking and humanity fighting back againest the machines. A prequel would involve more story line and more fair fighting instead of Neo just killing the agents. I think a prequel then a sequel would be the best if they are just going to make two more movies. Greba!!

Comments: hey great Job on the site. When I first watched this movie I got the idea that there may be some Christian bases to it, but i also though it just could be coincidence; but, the second time I saw it I was convinced the symbolism was intended. (And being a Christian myself i was very exited) The Writers did a great job with this allegory. I liked how Agent Smith, when taunting the captured Morpheus, mentiones that there was a worls creatted before this, where everyone was happy (Eden) but humans rejected this world (the fall of man) I was reeling from all of the symbolim in this book, and your site showed me other things about it had had not realised. Great Job, keep it up. -Tory

Comments: Morpheus represents the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers from the book of Ephesians 4:11. They are the gifts that 'Jesus' (whom Morpheus represents) that are given to the church to 'equip/train them for divine works of service and the knowledge of God and faith, until we come unto the full maturity of Christ....Neo, the fully matured church. Pastors, teachers and evangelists are only 3/5 of what the church needs to be fully trained to hack the Matrix and set all creation free into the Glorious Liberty of the children of God. (Romans 8)

Comments: love matrix, it´s so close to what i think life is that im surprised hope we stop living blind. what i think is that nothing its real until our senses are able to receive images and sounds as so as smell, or touch something so i think when we are away places and people stop existin, for instance, i´ve never been to france : does it really exists? for me it may not untill i go there i know i exist cause i have my own thaughts but i dont know that about other people i dont know if mom only appears infront of me when im home and if seh stops existing when i leave what do you think? obviously you´ll say you know you exist too cause you think but how will you know im not here just to write this message for you to be ableto read it in your reality huh? what if im not real what if my message is just in you mind everyone around you is probabbly the product of your imagination in order not to feel so lonley wht about that.... think about it ... that, of course if your thoughts are real and of your own

Comments: Cecil, Thanks so much! I just watched "The Matrix" for the second time. I heard that it was a cutting edge film with a different message. I have been a leader in the church of Jesus for many years and I have never seen something more creative and powerful for general public consumption than this! The first viewing I was just blown away. The second viewing I started making my own parallels and was just about 90% there. This is fantastic! Way to go! I hope this is the beginning of many more "rabbit trails!" Sam

Comments: Hi! the site gives great concept, but some of my friends and I have been thinking that the movie was intentionally misleading to make all conclude that Neo is the ONE himself. While all of us would love to believe that Neo IS the one, we believe he is NOT. first, the oracle knows EVERYTHING, right? she would not lie, maybe imply to neo that he was not the one (if she was only trying to guide him in the right direction) ,but not say exactly that he was not the one, which she did. She did, however say that neo was greatly gifted, which would explain why he did all these amazing things to break the matrix. second, morpheus' purpose, as told by the oracle, was that he would FIND the One, but not also that he would KNOW who was the one. So where is this all going? we believe that Trinity is actually the one, and that is what the sequels will be about. I don't disbute the fact that the Matrix was set like a Messiah movie, but it is very misleading to make us all believe that NEo is the one.

Comments: Great page!! I'm happy to see that so many are sensing and searching for spiritual reality. It shows that the face of Christianity is changing--the church has in the past looked for "the devil" in everything instead of looking for God in everything. --- I guess that is part of the Matrix! ;-) I also sensed the spiritual parallels in the movie and felt a connection. I also saw a parallel of the matrix as Paul described as "...They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts." It is easier in this culture to not listen to Truth, and just keep busy with what we think is real and important rather than what is eternal. Anyway, thanks for the encouraging site! Breachmender

Comments: I really enjoyed the spectacular site, and I love The Matrix. I see all the parallels between Christ and Neo, there is so much, but I disagree with some stuff, Not the parallels listed, but each others goals and purposes. The matrix, in a way decieves people to think that if we have a strong faith in Christ we can do stuff like Neo- stopping bullets for example. We can have a huge faith, completely depedant on God for everything but WE cannot stop bullets. If it is God's plan than he will do it, but we can't do it ourselves. I'm only seventeen and I may be wrong but it doesn't quite line up. Jesus was different. It would be interesting to talk E-mail address--- hooti4523@hotmail.com

Comments: I am extremely impressed with your analysis of this awesome movie. I am also very happy to see I was not the only homosapien to pick up on these connections. My mother, an ordained minister first brought these parallels to my eyes when I first saw the movie. It has been my absoulute favorite movie ever since then. Like he said, we were born into bondage. In the bible, it says that we were all born into the bondage of sin and there is only one way to be free. That is through Jesus Christ. Similarly, in the movie the only way to be free is for Neo to destroy the Matrix so we all could know the truth. Just like in the movie we all go around blindly living our lives in total degradation and sin, not knowing the truth that there is a better way , God's way and not the way of the Matrix. Loved it, and will always, can't wait for the sequel, Shelby

Comments: Hey Cecil, This is a very interesting web page man. I'm glad I found this site. This is deffinatly one of my favorite movies. I've seen it 6 times and every time I find something new. I want to say right away that I am a christian. I do try to live a rightious life in the footsteps of Christ although I fall short eveyday. I'm perplexed by how closely the story Christ and the Matrix overlap. Since I been saved (almost one year) I notice the thing of this world differntly and how most of this sensory overload we are going through is all a trick of the devil to distract us from the truth. And even sometimes he (satan) uses the Bible to confuse us. In mathew 4:6 when satan was tempting Jesus, satan used scripture. Is this movie a trick of the devil?

Comments: Dear Mr. Cecil, I have enjoyed reading your discussion of the similarities between the Matrix and the Christian theology. I,myself, am a student of religion and have been studying for about 5 years. I feel I am pretty adequate in the field. My lead topics of studying are Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism. When reading your parallels of Neo to Christ it struck a cord within me. I believe Christ was one of the top 5 greatest men in all of history. He ranked among Aristotle, Confucius, Buddha, etc. I will not lay claim to anyone as the greatest for I wish not to insult anyone or their beliefs. I, after watching the Matrix for the first time, also began noticing the similarities of the Matrix and the Christian religion. But after closer examination I realized this movie, like the Wachowski Bros. said, has many meanings. It also relates to many religions. Mainly Greek and Roman myths, Buddhism, and Judeo-Christian faiths including Islam. I hope not to offend you with my realization. An Example of the Matrix relating to Greek myths is the name Morpheus. Morpheus was the god of dreaming and in the movie Morpheus attempts to liberate people from the dreamlike Matrix. It compares to Buddhism, in that the followers of the religion try to gain enlightenment by ridding themselves of perceptions of the world and seeing reality and consciousness for what it is. Relating to how when the people are emancipated no longer cling to the Matrix as reality and see it is fake. I will not discuss the Christian similarities for I see you are well acquainted but it relates to Islam in that Muslims are taught to eliminate temptation and follow the voice of Allah(God) within them. This is true when Neo is about to leap between the two buildings. He is told not to listen to the temptation to doubt himself and see he can do it. This is also multiple meaning toward Peter and Jesus. When Peter had to go on a leap of faith and walk on the water with Christ. He then fell to temptation and began to sink much like Neo. If you would like for me to sned you my comparisons and perspectives of the Matrix and religion feel free to e-mail me. You may use my comparisons if you choose, I would only like the Justification of authorship and credit. If you email me I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Sincerely, A fellow student of religion and comparisons. E-Mail: Mr_Rogers@CommunityConnect.com

We were reading the Allegory of the Cave. The story has to do with seeing your world in only one manner, and then being introduced to a whole knew world. The matrix seemed to fit the same type of experience except on a completely different level.

Comments: Couple more parallels for ya: Neo is tempted just as Jesus was - he is given the chance to submit to the AI by taking the red pill. Cypher - or......Lu - cifer? Apok - ....apocalypse? Whenever Jesus healed someone, he asked them not to tell of who he was. When Neo gives the disk to the guy at the beginning of the movie, he cautions him not to be caught using it, and the guy says: "yeah, I know,.....'you don't exist'"

Comments: i just got done watching the matrix a few hours ago. I enjoyed the movie a lot but did not look at it as u did not as a connection to anything having to do with any biblical occurences but jsut as a different outlook on what our existence could be. But after looking through your page there were some intereseting conections but i think it was all done on purpose but all in all it is a good page about a good movie

Comments: I think MATRIX has some connection with SCIENTOLOGY ideas. In SCIENTOLOGY is talked about very far incidents ( Billions of years ago ) when the beings were trapped just like NEO was. Bodies kept in captivity and false ideas implanted into their minds. The final of the movie recall the SCIENTOLOGY idea of seeing the things as they really are (NEO viewing the matrix code instead of "false reality"). It's a big movie.

Comments: Regardless of the debate there is only one truth. "The Matrix" is a movie. Jesus is real. There is a God. Just look around you. You may argue evolution as I once did, but the fact is that evolution is a theory being treated as fact. Don't take my word for it, check it out. Also, if you choose to search out truth (and friends, there is an absolute truth) you will see that modern science is revealing some fascinating eveidence in support of the Bible. What it comes down to is this: Faith. Take the step. If all we had to do to get to heaven was to do good things then why did Jesus die for us? We need Him. His gift was free, but a gift is useless unless it is recieved. Romans 10:9-10 ...if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation. God is real and is waiting for you to come to Him. No matter what you've done it's not going to prevent Him from accepting you. Once you accept Jesus into your life you will never be the same again. You have never known such love before. God bless you, whoever you are.

Comments: To me, The Matrix is a scripture from the book of Te-Tao Ching, a Chinese philosophy the explains "The Way" of life. It's a great book to read when your feeling lost in life. It gives you the courage and will to survive and it helps us determine what's important and not important in our lives...You can even call it, "The Book of Reality" if you want. Anyways man, nice website .. I will visit it quite often. P.S. Matrix toys for sale at "mysimon.com" :)!!

Unfortunately, I found your page after the paper was due, but it was so fascinating to me to see some of the parallels you came up with. A lot of them I also saw, but there were a few that I never would have caught. I only wish I had known about your page before I did the paper! Your site is awesome, keep up the great work!!

Comments: I finally saw the Matrix last Friday, and I was amazed at how many parallels there were between the film and the Christian faith. As a Christian, I was amazed at how much was portrayed in what I would almost call a 21st-century parable. It brought up some really good points and really got me thinking about a lot of stuff. And all this from a Hollywood blockbuster, what's more! For anyone who hasn't seen it, go ahead and watch it. The language is about equal to Apollo 13 (unfortunately, there is a lot of taking the Lord's name in vain, but some could say this shows the humanness of the people on the Nebuchadnezzar). There is no sex or nudity, violence is on a par with the average Indiana Jones movie, and there are a LOT of Christian parallels. In other words, this should have been rated PG-13 at the highest. Go see it, you'll see what I mean.

Comments: I like this site alot. Every scince, and even before, I saw the Matrix I've been discussing and reflecting on the symbols and real message of the movie. Now, There's probably alot that can be interpreted in the movie but what's important to me is that people recognize the real message of the film and take heed to it. The problem is I feel most people don't. Their caught up in the special effects and drama as in most Hollywood movies. I think the overall message that people need to realize is the power of ourselves and our minds. I really can't understand how some people miss the message. Of course it's a Hollywood produced movie therefore the "Hollywood dramatic elements" to entertain us are there, but there's so much more in the film that's so apparent. I can't see how you could look at this movie as just enterainment. It's very much truth and once you realize what it's about your at the first step of freeing your mind. Anyhow, it's good to see a site that goes deeper into the meanings of what the Matrix and our minds are really about. Peace, Mepho Brown

I'm christian, so I'd noticed that when I saw the film, and It was funny to see all the technology used on the movie, and The kaos theory, and everything... but the message was the same old and simple message on history. I think that's kind of bizarro, The human being is funny, don't you think?
