Matrix Insights

23 Neo: "I know you're out there now. I can feel you now and I know you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I am going to hang up this phone and then I am going to show these people a world you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you, without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you." Neo's new freedom is without the character of fear, blame, and hatred. Our understanding of the need for control and certainty as fear-based principles can only be expressed with compassion, and true liberation can only be experienced when we are all free.


24Neo awakens from a disturbing dream and Trinity reassures him by saying, "Don't worry, she [the oracle] will call," As we later see in Matrix Revolution, everyone from the real world and in the Matrix knows and consults the oracle.. The oracle represents the intuitive side of our nature, and we can only attain intuitive knowledge when we shut down the rational side of our brain. As Captain Niobe says in Matrix Revolution, "the Oracle told me just what I needed to hear." This intuitive knowledge of Self gives us the passion to faithfully and fearlessly walk the path to providence. Although the Matrix views our intuitive nature as a primitive and illusive inclination of the human brain serving no useful purpose, the oracle (as part of the Matrix) helps to satisfy this nature in order to maintain stability within the Matrix dream world. In the real world, the oracle's intuitive insight is the guide toward the purpose to find the necessary passion and courage to "walk the path." As Morpheus said in his speech to the people of Zion, "Our passion is in our primal connection." The Matrix (or the world of collective ego it represents) does not acknowledge the existence of this primal connection - the power of "The One."
