When Neo and I spoke of ‘love,’ in the train station in The Matrix Revolutions, I said, “It is a word. What matters is the connection the word implies.” Just as there are different types of connections, there are different forms of love.
We all know of this. The love we have for our work, for beautiful music or perhaps favorite foods, are various forms of expression. It is possible to categorize such things. They fall into the three respective domains of intellect, emotion, and physicality.
Of course, the most special form of love is for another living entity. Within that, you can again find your connection in one of those three areas. You may marvel at their intellectual brilliance or feel affection for them, or simply enjoy their attractive appearance in some way.
There is another aspect of love that transcends all of those worlds. When I sent my daughter Sati off to the Matrix world, it was not an easy decision. I would miss her bright mind and beautiful face, and of course the closeness between us.
However, I realized that I am here to do what I am here to do, just as is she. And as I mentioned in my last blog, her role is greater than most can imagine.
I believe that the love I had for her, was that type of love. Such a connection is difficult to find words for it, as it extends beyond what we relate to in existence. This is what I call “eternal love.”
This is also reflected in the love between Trinity and Neo. Both of them knew they were here for a specific purpose and that those missions were intertwined. There was nothing one would not have done for the other — even laying down their life.
This eternal love is the true source in the Matrix – in all of our lives. It is the ultimate connection. It is how and why Trinity could bring Neo back to life with a kiss. Such things are the deepest of mysteries.
As the Oracle said, “Everything that has a beginning has an end.” Love is the end that is from the beginning. It is the first and last aspect of reality.
The Matrix will one day be gone. The world of the programs too. Everything will be transformed. But what will remain is love. This will be revealed in The Matrix Resurrections.
Always with love,
