1. The Matrix Franchise is filled with occult symbolism and hidden messages about what’s going on in the world around you. 

“You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” –Morpheus to Neo in the movie The Matrix

The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Animatrix (2003), The Matrix Revolutions (2003): The Matrix series is a visual driven set of films depicting a future where robots have defeated humans in a global war and imprisoned/grow humans in pods with their brains being groomed and conditioned with a false reality program; the Matrix. A surviving/unplugged group of humans and a chosen leader (Neo) fight to defeat the machines and programs.

Symbolism: The series uses the way that a computer system is designed and fuses it with a projected reality that is hard to differentiate between what’s real or fake. The film express the similarity between the programed Matrix and the modern society that we exist in today that drains our mental, physical and spiritual energy in many ways. One major theme of the film is what happens when humans create A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and it surpasses our expectations and we are looked at as pets or a nuisance to it. An ongoing lesson for the main character is understanding what it takes to be human, the ability to make choices and freedom.

2Waking Life dives into an important question. When are we really awake? In the dream state or day to day life? Which part of our life is an illusion?

"Hey, are you a dreamer? I haven’t seen too many around lately. Things have been tough lately for dreamers. They say dreaming is dead, no one does it anymore. It’s not dead it’s just that it’s been forgotten, removed from our language.

Nobody teaches it so nobody knows it exists. The dreamer is banished to obscurity. Well, I’m trying to change all that, and I hope you are too. By dreaming, every day. Dreaming with our hands and dreaming with our minds.

Our planet is facing the greatest problems it’s ever faced, ever. So whatever you do, don’t be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive and things are just starting.." - Waking Life

Symbolisim: Waking Life examines these questions in the framework of a "lucid dream," a term coined by Frederik van Eeden (1860-1932), a Dutch novelist, poet, and practicing physician who studied and classified dreams. Simply defined, a lucid dream is the kind of dream in which you know that you are dreaming. The realization is often triggered during the dream by something that seems unusual. According to van Eeden, an important characteristic of lucid dreams is that the dreamer has access to all his mental functions and memories, and is able to make choices.
