Nevermind me, I'm just trying to free your mind

It’s not the spoon that bends, it’s the mind.

Morpheus could have considered offering Neo some starfish and coffee before he went all kung fu on him….

-It was visually stunning. I very rarely care about things like this, but it would have been great on a big screen.

-Oh, at the rave, Dragula by Rob Zombie is playing. I like that one by Zombie. Oh and Rage Against the Machine at the ending sequence!!!!! I LOVE RAGE!!! I started the jam session with Rage.

-Fight scene with Neo and Morpheus when Morpheus was all ‘why won’t you hit me?’ reminded me of Fight Club when Tyler was all….’I want you to hit me as hard as you can’ to Edward. So much hitting, flowers next time….flowers….

-Red Pill/Blue Pill. While this might be some sort of revolutionary concept to some, let’s be real here, people here on this site understand the difference and circumstances surrounding both pills. We don’t need to go too far into that. No, I would never want to Un know anything I already know. However, I want to start taking control of what I absorb. Just because I know the stuff that goes along with taking the red pill does not mean I have to live in a depressing world where everything is set up to scare me. Some people get so stuck in the red pill world that they forget to live.

-I love it when Neo asks Morpheus why his eyes hurt and Morpheus tells him it is because Neo is using them for the first time. My brain hurt recently. I’d say it started end of November ish, when all the sudden I was being mentally challenged for the first time in a long time.

It’s like when Neo wakes up and he is all…. ‘I know Kung Fu’

And then Morpheus says……..’Show me’

I will show people someday in the future what I learned recently. I just have to learn some more of it, I’m not as quick of a learn as Neo. Not in this area at least.

-Ok, the agents…the controllers….This lines up with the singularity stuff right, and transhumanism? They are killing humanity…. When this semester ends, I am going to rewatch this alongside some more transhumanism books and articles and write something amazing about parallels. I can’t do it now because I want it to be effing amazing and I don’t have the time right now with other things I am working on.

-Let’s talk about robot people for a minute….Tank was playing with all sorts of buttons there at the end wasn’t he?

-You know what I noticed at one point? The cell phones….they were rather large. Haha, I never usually notice things like that, I think it was because of your Fight Club post. That was weird to me that I even noticed that at all.

-I don’t usually like extended gun fight scenes, but when Neo and Trinity stormed the lobby to go save Morpehus and they kicked some ass….that was pretty cool.

-Alright let’s talk about the spoon though. (Hey, there is a guy here whose name is ‘Thereisnospoon’ Now I know what that means lol).

It’s not the spoon that bends, it’s your mind that bends. So there kind of is a spoon right? Your mind. You make it what you want. Kind of like going back to the red pill blue pill conundrum. Why take either. There is no pill. There is only your mind. There is nothing. Only your mind. You get to chose what you put in there. I don’t want to keep poisoning my mind with brainwashing from ANYONE that I don’t know, like, trust, care about, or respect. In the create your own culture thread you told me to ‘funk the msm.’ I agree. But I’m going it a step further. I will now be saying ‘funk anyone (don’t care if it’s msm or liberty minded or what) that tries to tell me what to read, think, say, or do.’ Because it’s all brainwashing isn’t it?

All of it. Anything anyone tries to shove at you no matter how much truth there might be behind their message or what their intentions are is brainwashing. About 2 or 3 years ago I started telling my Dad I wanted to fall back asleep. He hates it when I say that. I don’t think that’s what I meant though. Again I don’t want to un know anything I already know, I just want to wash my own brain with help from people that I like. Even Neo needed help right?

There was so much speculation over whether Neo was ‘the one’ or not.

Even he speculated. Look what happened when he just said ‘eff it, who cares, I say I am the one’ and then he goes and kicks ass.

Again, he decided in his mind he was the one and takes control, he needs some help still, everyone does, but he took control.

Red pill, blue pill, orange pill, green pill, purple pill….Doesn’t matter. There are no pills. There are no spoons. There is only your mind and you can bend it, shape it, mold it, and create it however you want to.

Frank McCourt, author of Angela’s Ashes says

“You have to study and learn so that you can make up your own mind about history and everything else but you can’t make up an empty mind. Stock your mind, stock your mind. You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace. It’s lovely to know that the world can’t interfere with the inside of your mind.”

I love this book! Hey can I make these links a different color than red? I tried, but it didn't work.

Flowers. I’ll get it posted soon…. But flowers. The next movie is about flowers.
