In 1999, the science fiction genre was revolutionized by the release of the Wachowski brothers' film, "The Matrix." This movie not only acted as a synthesis of almost twenty years of futuristic movies but also inlcuded dazzling new CG special effects. However, when you take a much closer look at the film, so much more becomes evident. Instead of a really cool action movie about a dystopian future, you get a warning about the Illuminati and 9/11. "The Matrix" is actually a subtle attempt by Hollywood to speak to us, to tell us that it's the NWO who control everything and that we must wake up and see it.
To understand how this conspiracy works, we need to look at the film's story line. Once the green lines of computer code leave the screen, we see a world not unlike ours. People go about their daily lives completely focused on their mundane tasks and oblivious to the truth behind it all. To us, this is reality, a reality where we work jobs, raise families, and not ask questions. In the film, though, that's not the case. With the exception of the few rebels who have broken free, no one knows that they are really trapped in a prison where their physical bodies are harvested for energy. What everyone who is trapped in the matrix really is is brainwashed.
That's what the Wachowski brothers are trying to tell us, that we are living in a reality that really isn't. We go about our lives not really thinking about what is really behind everything. We believe certain truths and don't question them, and we perceive people who challenge this reality as crazies or nutjobs. That's what "The Matrix" elucidates for us. We can see a perfect metaphor for our own situation, but little do we know that we are the ones who have been brainwashed. We are all prisoners in a world controlled by the Illuminati, and very few of us see it.
Here's how the film's metaphor works. Everyone trapped in the matrix believes what their mind perceives is real, but in actuality, it isn't. Those who are trapped are led to believe that those who challenge the powers that control everything are dangerous terrorists. Periodically, this reality is questioned when some inhuman stunt is performed such as leaping across a rooftop, although the questioning would never lead to the truth. The reality created within the matrix is sophisticated brainwashing at its finest. This is an exact representation of the world in which we live today.
Now onto those who have broken free and become rebels, these people such as Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity are the good guys. They realized that all within the matrix was not as it seemed, and they challenged their realities to learn the truth. Throughout the movie, they are tireless in their efforts to defeat the machines and liberate humankind. These people are the metaphor for those that have accepted that the Illuminati are real. It is we who are trying to inform everyone that their reality isn't reality. It is we who want to, as Morpheus said so well, "free your mind." That is the theme that recurs throughout the film. It's not just about liberating people from slavery but freeing people's minds and opening their eyes. That is what those of us who write about the NWO are trying to do. Like Morpheus, we are trying to free your minds. We are not brainwashed, no longer. We see the truth. We see what an empty existence the Illuminati want for us, and we are determined to stop it. That is exactly what the film's heroes are out to do.
With the first two elements of the metaphor established, we need to address the third and that is what represents the Illuminati. As you've probably already guessed, it's the agents. Those who work in secrecy and are unstoppable. Your single agent represents a member of the Illuminati. They are everywhere and nowhere, and they can't be beaten. They make the rules and control the system. As long as we work in their world, they have the upper hand. Like the Illuminati, agents can be anyone. They can be mailmen, police officers, or teachers. They can use any means necessary to stop you, whether it be through sheer brute force or the bribery of one of your own. The agents are the very essence of evil. However, no one aside from the resistance fighters are even aware of them. That is exactly how the NWO works. They control everything and are everpresent but are also completely invisible. Nobody knows they exist except for those that know the truth.
Not only is "The Matrix" the perfect Illuminati metaphor, it's also one of many forewarnings from Hollywood about 9/11. This movie's warning can be seen towards the end when a helicopter crashes into a building, creating a massive fireball. It's more than just a simple sign of things to come but also a subtle method to communicate to the masses what such an event should look like if it were to actually happen. The two planes that flew into the Twin Towers looked very similar to the fireball that erupted from the building in "The Matrix." This was someone's attempt to tell us something, and we didn't listen.
Between the obvious metaphor about how the matrix is really our own reality and the pre-9/11 symbolism, there is no doubt that this film was a message, one telling us that we are all brainwashed slaves trapped in a false reality. To make things better, we must heed the message and "free our minds." During the first meeting between Morpheus and Neo, Morpheus offers Neo two pills (blue and red). One leads to freedom (red), the other leads to ignorance (blue). It is red that is the color of wisdom, and it's the red pill that Neo takes. You are also being offered one of two pills. This offer is coming at you everyday. Will you take the blue one and continue living in this false reality, or will you take the red one and free yourself of brainwashing? We took the red one, and needless to say, we have freed our minds.
