Believe me, it’s for your own protection

So go with your life...

"I have never doubted the truth of signs, Adso; they are the only things man has with which to orient himself in the world. What I did not understand is the relation among signs . . . I behaved stubbornly, pursuing a semblance of order, when I should have known well that there is no order in the universe."
"But in imagining an erroneous order you still found something. . . ."
"What you say is very fine, Adso, and I thank you. The order that our mind imagines is like a net, or like a ladder, built to attain something. But afterward you must throw the ladder away, because you discover that, even if it was useful, it was meaningless . . . The only truths that are useful are instruments to be thrown away." - Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose, Seventh Day, Night


"Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world, where none suffered. " - Agent Smith

"Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts... A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the non space of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. - William Gibson, "Neuromancer" - The First Matrix Definition. :)

"When originals no longer exist, the last copy is the original." - Umberto Eco, "Foucault's Pendulum", Chapter 18


Quotes submitted by Agent Unity:

"It was a live thing, a magic concrete forest of skyscrapers and awe,
the breathing of generations, the mixture of peoples.
'We are but bees working in this hive,' he said.
'What?' Lucky asked.
'The city. Her.'"
--Rustin Quaide, "Garou Saga"


"Neo. Your apartment has no source of natural light, I'm wearing a potato sack for clothes, and this place is depressive! Screw the real world, I want the Matrix!"
--Carrie, "MTV Movie Awards 2000 - Matrix Parody"


"You think you know us, but you do not.
You think you are like we are, but you are not.
We are like no other. <...>
You try to behave like us, but you cannot.
You try to keep pace with us, but you fall behind.
We run the long run. <...>
You try to match our purity, but you are tainted.
You try to catch our eye, but our eye is fixed on our prey.
We are relentless. <...>
You plan and sheme, change and grow.
You fight together and speak like humans.
You multiple and are many.
We are stone, we stay the same.
We speak seldom and make no promises, save one."
--Ben Chessell, "Scent-of-Red-Snow Speaks"


"Watch the new life grow. Look at it. The long wires are seeking outward. The pulse is throbbing at 60 hertz. Its mouth is broadcasting information and its eyes and ears are absorbing it. A metal organism. Humans befriend it and steward its children - new models with stylish improvements and add-on gadgets."
--Emrey Barnes, "Glass Walkers - Metal Organism"


"What the machine taught us is that technology is alive. It's an organism. It exists on a different level than most, a level of pattern and abstraction, part in the spirit world and part in the physical world."
--Emrey Barnes, "Glass Walkers - The March Of History"


"You know you're going to die sooner or later -
Propably sooner.
Besides, you'll reincarnate anyway, right?"
--Emrey Barnes, "Glass Walkers - Residents of the Naked City"


"Nocturnal notions as we leave or cocoons
Antennae tuned to inuman vibrations
Shaping the cities of the world that's to come
I listen to the sound, the endless construction ...
A thousand lights from this honeycombed labyrinth ..."
        --Killing Joke, "Inside The Termite Mound"


"I know, there's a floodgate and a raging river
I say, see the silence of the ribbons of iron and steel
I say, hear the punch drunk huddle drive hammer and wheel
Sometimes you're beaten to the call
Sometimes you're taken to the wall
But you don't give in."
       --Midnight Oil, "Sometimes"
