Questions from The Matrix – The Evangelical Outpost

To round out the week of questions, I decided to spend some time thinking about one of my favorite movies, The Matrix. The film is filled with questions, and there’s a lot to wonder about there.

Morpheus doesn’t ask Neo a question: he presents him two options. It’s a backhanded way of asking a question, though: Neo is forced to ask himself what he will do, and audiences everywhere wanted to know how deep that rabbit hole went. We all know which way Neo went (and if you don’t, I’m terribly sorry, this movie is 14 years old). We wanted to follow the rabbit hole into the deeper reality it offered, regardless of what that actually looked like.

We even think we know that reality.

You can see the rest here.
