What if I said that right now you have a bank account on the planet Zepetes with 1 million tons of gold deposited in your name? Unfortunately, Zepetes is invisible and can’t be detected by normal means. Does this mean that this ‘reality’ is empty since there is no possible way of experiencing the sensory pleasures of owning all that wealth? Is The Matrix such an empty ‘reality’?

To tell or not to tell, that is the dilemma. How can you tell without teling? And what is worse, if you do tell, how are you going to do it ? The problem is no one will believe you, but I know you know.that I know you know .

Kind Regards.

If you found the control panel and escaped The Matrix would you choose to come back and inform all those still within the Matrix? Do you think they would be grateful, or would you be considered a nut?

If you were a goldfish, confined to a goldfish bowl, and you were set free, would you prefer freedom or the bowl, if it meant that to come back just to tell the other goldfish imprisoned there, that there is free life outside the glass bowl, would cost you your own freedom ? Then no one would win, would they ? And that, is the dilemma. .....For the goldfish, that is...

Ultimately, yes indeed!
There are laws imposed by man and then there are natural or ‘universal laws’. (Who imposes these is a question for Socrates and the theologians!) But they exist nonetheless. For example, one law is that of constancy and eternity. Anything true is constant or eternal. Another law is that of changeability or variability. Anything true is variable. For example, it is true to say that the world is in a content state of change and will be thus forever more. Therefore, something changes and something becomes the cause of change. The matrix is not 'true' and, therefore, it is not constant and eternal. So, sooner or later there would be a glitch in the power supply and the matrix would shut down.
