you have to see it for yourself

This section is dedicated to essays, articles, opinions, etc. that do not strictly adhere to the approach spelled out on the About page but nonetheless relevant to discussion. Things here may tend to get into meta analysis, however, the slant here is always to go deeper in The Matrix universe itself and not to study these ideas for a sake of those ideas. Allegory, analogy, and symbolism will be used to help explain The Matrix not the reverse. Views expressed below are not necessarily those of The Red Pill Project.
