I need to get those DVDs. I remember, when the first one came out, we went out for pizza with some good friends beforehand and were having this discussion about the nature of reality. (None of us had any idea what the movie was about.) I had been playing around with this idea that we were all in some sort of virtual reality. Then I watched the movie, and my eyes about bugged out of my head.
Here's the part that struck me in regards to this discussion:
The Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but your not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase. |
Neo: What vase?
The Oracle: That vase.
Neo: I'm sorry.
The Oracle: I said don't worry about it. I'll get one of my kids to fix it.
Neo: How did you know?
The Oracle: What's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything.
I really do need to get those DVDs...
