The Matrix

Sun Sep 28, 2014, 1:30 PM

In 1999, the Matrix came out. It was at the time one of the most talked about blockbusters out there. Changing our views on virtuality and computers as did Tron in 1982. It is without a doubt one of the best examples of simulations challenging our concept of reality and non-reality. Is the matrix a simulation? Yes. Without question the idea of machines artificially shooting electricity to our neurons to create a “false world” is a simulation. But is that simulation good enough to be as good as the original source, i.e. Reality? The matrix is not as Jean Baudrillard would call a reflection of reality with exact qualities as seen in the Matrix Trilogy with glitches and distortions. It is intentionally distorted and appearance based copying. On the surface is it as similar to the original as possible, however to copy “Reality” to the exact would be too difficult for any possible computer, for that computer would have to be as big as the universe with information. Although this is not what the matrix is. The matrix doesn’t have to copy everything that reality has e.g. the stars in space and infinite cosmos. It just needs to convince the inhabitants enough to be “real”. If the inhabitants are convinced there is no difference from the simulation to the real copy, it is “hyper real”. There is no distinguishable difference and for intent and purposes the simulation (matrix) is in fact the truth. The real.

There is one scene where the character Mouse is explaining the idea of taste in the matrix compared to the “real world”. He questions the idea that taste simulation from machines and that it is a human ability and thus the machines artificially telling our brains what certain things taste like is not valid. Because the “redpills” Humans (matrix born) have only experienced foods artificially from machinery created by AI, their concept of the “real” taste is possibly wrong – As machines lack subjectivity – Maybe they [machines] got it wrong [tasty wheat], maybe do you know I think tasty wheat tasted like? Oatmeal or tunafish?. This is a notable example of humans would live in hyperreality. The idea of our minds being challenged is difficult to comprehend at first. But like Plato wrote, the cave allegory. When the inhabitants notice the form they realise that this is actually the truth. And so forth when seeing the fire behind the form. When our concept is challenged and debunked, we accept the next concept which disapproves it. SoMouse’s theory of “taste” and machine subjectivity is true at this point when realised and is accepted by the redpills – the taste of tasty wheat is different in reality then in the matrix.

ABOUT ME


Hello there, my name is Avi Chetri. I am a digital arts student at a University in London. I really just use this dA account "AviArts" for hobby purposes and merely illustrate things for fun so to speak. However you might find me actually trying hard on a few drawings. I use Photoshop, Manga Studio 5, Illustrator and Cinema 4D mainly. I mostly do digital art as thats my career choice. I also do website designing and creating HTML and CSS, as well as some Processing.
