Matrix Insights

33 When Neo looses his sight he is guided by the intuitive path of the Source and now has the power of The One to choose the right path and the power to overcome the Matrix sentinel forces. The rational mind limits our awareness to what we can see, hear, and touch. When our rational mind is silenced, the intuitive mode produces an extraordinary awareness: the environment is experienced in a direct way without the filters of conceptual thinking. When eastern mystics talk about "seeing," they refer to a mode of perception which may include visual perception, but which always and essentially transcends it to become a non-sensory experience of reality.

34After Agent Smith's separation from the source of the Matrix, and his power-hungry assimilation of the oracle, Neo talks to the Matrix source and asks for the opportunity to stop Agent Smith. The Matrix source understands the codependency between the real world and the Matrix, and because Agent Smith's program has taken on its own purpose to destroy all life forms, this program no longer serves its designed purpose. Neo is then given the opportunity to delete Agent Smith's program and ultimately brings peace to Zion. This meeting between the Matrix source and Neo represents the necessary recognition of the right-brain oriented world of intuitive knowing by the complementary left-brain world of physical cognition. Neo presents the Matrix source with an interesting choice, or dilemma: He has two powerful program anomalies to deal with, one with the purpose to liberate the humans and another with the purpose to destroy them.

This is the same human dilemma that has challenged humanity for centuries, and ultimately the only real choice that we have - do we choose the creative and strengthening principles of love or do we choose the destructive and weakening principles of fear?
