Corporate Mofo discusses the Matrix universe in detail too deep for a philosophical lightweight for me to comprehend. But he picks up on, and explains something I noticed too.
Not coincidentally, most of the people in Zion seem to be black or Hispanic, which makes perfect sense: If you’re a white suburban Matrix resident, driving your Matrix SUV to your Matrix golf club, why doubt the nature of reality?
His explanation is interesting. The observation about the residents of Zion was floating around in my head, but I hadn’t put words to it. Like ceej I’ve gotta classify this analysis of the Matrix universe as “so far highly speculative and thus suspect”. But interesting nonetheless.
