Quote# 38345

In the scene near the end of the movie when Neo goes into this room at the top of the building that he had so much difficulty getting into and meets with this older gray haired man…..the man tells Neo that he is the Architect of all of this ….. In the occult world when that word is used, it is often used to falsely represent that it is God, but in reality it is Satan. The Masons in particular speak of their god as the Great Architect of the Universe. I believe it goes without saying that the Masonic god is Satan, not the God of the Bible. I don’t think that it was a random coincidence that the writers put that in.

My take on this is that all these figures represent all the Biblical counterfeits of scripture. In this movie what we have is the anti Christ (Neo) Satan (the Architect), and maybe the false prophet in either Trinity or Morpheus. Ironically, it was condemning the kind of carnal indulgence that Morphesus presided over, that got John the Baptist beheaded. I don’t think John the Baptist could ever be identified with the Morphesus character. Also, one could say that the deception of people within the movie’s portrayal of the matrix and virtual vs. reality, is very much like the deception in real life that Satan creates as we all succumb to our carnal natures and chase one false and misleading pursuit of temporal pleasure after another.

Say it with me now: F-I-C-T-I-O-N. Fiction. Not real. Get it?

I thought not.

What the fuck? THE MASONS ARE A CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION! They read the Bible just like you do. How do I know this? We have multiple personal Bibles from deceased family members who were Masons. All of them were Christian, none of them were as insane as you are. So fuck off, my grandfather certainly did not worship Satan.

All I understood from that whole paragraph was the part where he says that he's a fucking nutbag.

Wow, you Xtians can relax and enjoy anything, can you?

Wait, if Neo is the anti-Christ...then xxxxxxxx Agent Smith (edit) is God/Christ, whom Neo tries to destroy?

If so, what you're saying is that Neo, the anti-Christ, tried to stop Agent God/Christ from consuming and destroying the world that Agent God/Christ had helped fabricate...

And you also then agree that Agent God/Christ consumes and ultimately kills his own people with no remorse so long as his desires are met...

Yep, I'd say that's a pretty spot on assessment of the world...oh wait, wasn't there a movie in here somewhere?

-Ya got me Durane...stupid Y2K era movies...

Psst, struby, Neo is Mr. Anderson. I think you mean (ex-)Agent Smith.

Temporal pleasure will be the only pleasure that you will get, nuthead...

1) It's only a movie.

2) Watch the whole trilogy (painful as it is to do so) before you offer any commentary about it.

First up. Neo opposes the both the Architect and his plans. Secondly the Architect only designed the Matrix, the false digital prison world that most of the story takes place in. Finally Neo is obviously a Christ figure. He is prophesied, he gives up his life to save humanity, and finally he even dies in a crucifix form. If you can't see the Christian symbolism in the Matrix then you are just fucking stupid.

Just lighten up and get a life. It's fiction. You don't have to believe it. It's not meant as a moral guide or pattern for your life. It's just a movie. Take that stick out of your butt, relax and go see if there's a movie you like better.

Wet Walnuts

I'm gonna have to agree with Osiris on this...there is a lot of Xian symbolism in "The Matrix" films. The fact that you are too uptight to just watch and enjoy the movies makes me feel sorry for you.

super dooper dooper man

Wow, you can really pull bullshit out of a movie!

would you help me with an english essay?

Morpheus is actually Captain Ahab, and the oracle is really leuitenent Uhuru from Star Trek, and...

You're right, the Bible and the Matrix DO have something in common: They're both works of fiction.

Just another steaming pile of fail on a cold spring evening.

4/29/2008 6:15:47 AM


Since Neo died and came back uber-powerful in the first film, isn't he meant to represent Christ?

4/29/2008 6:18:15 AM


Ahem.. Neo the "Freer of Man", he died and came back, and then died again for all of humanity. And the Oracle was the Prophet.

Now calling "The Architect" a Mason is a helluva stretch, as an architect is the designer of the Matrix.

Stop trying to bible-ise everything, fergossakes!

4/29/2008 6:57:25 AM


You know, if I put a lump of coal up your ass, it'd turn into a diamond. That's how much of a tightwad your are.

4/29/2008 7:25:27 AM


Really? I always thought Neo was more of a... messiah?

4/29/2008 7:47:06 AM

Septic Sceptic

Yeah well if the Bible had included just one freeway chase scene we wouldn't have to keep rehashing it in movie form.

The Wachowski brothers meet Leo Taxil...

4/29/2008 8:30:26 AM

You never watched the movie, APPARENTLY.

4/29/2008 8:59:14 AM



Look a good critique of the Matrix trilogy is this... First movie, good and interesting, second movie - dumbed down. Third movie - Oh God oh Why?

That and using humans as fuel instead of the sun breaks laws... Like serious physics laws.
