One of the most confusing aspects of the Matrix story is that of the Matrix prophecy. For the past 18 years, fans have entertained the idea that it was not what Morpheus believed it to be. We’re going to squash that rumor.
Among the many interesting facets to the Matrix Resurrections trailer is the featured song, “White Rabbit,” by the Jefferson Airplane from 1967. It is truly an outstanding choice with regard to its hints at a hidden reality.
The subject of ‘consciousness’ has come up of late in discussions on the Matrix. The story can be seen as an allegory for “an increase in consciousness” or “spiritual advancement” and the things that act as barriers to such.

Everyone has heard of the Path of the One. We provide a quick look at the 5 key steps and 5 ‘worlds’ that Neo encountered in his transition from sleeper to a savior. This is the “Cliff Notes” version of our Knowledge Base.
Among the many amazing connections that The Matrix makes, the date of the movie’s release along with the new tagline is near the top. Find out why this sequence of 1’s and 2’s relates to the storyline and our own existence!
Since we began teaching courses on the background to The Matrix trilogy, almost 20 years ago, Sati has been a critical topic for what she represents in the deeper understanding of where the story is going.
There was great speculation as to what the title would be once the fourth movie was announced. Based on the first three titles and the storyline, there was no reason to think it could be anything but The Matrix Resurrections.
