I posted yesterday a short piece titled: ‘Media Predecessors Aside, Are the Transgender-Authored Wachowski Matrix Films Evidence that Transition Beyond Binary Sexuality Opens A New Metaphysical Landscape and Possibilities for Meaning in a Gnostic Universe?‘ –
which talked about the line in the matrix ‘There is no spoon’.
‘It is not the spoon that bends. It is yourself.”
I want to reflect on the meaning of this. To me this is a statement of how to manipulate a simulation you are stuck within, AND the world.
It is not the spoon that bends, it is I? This is another way of saying, I AM the spoon. I am one with the universe.
But if the simulation is a stream of data that wants to lay perfidious claim on your psyche. You must grasp the spoon, apart from the stream, and understand that you control this, this grasp, this moment, this part and thing and time and space in front of you.
Take back control from the social media stream concensus destruction machine. Step away, hydrate, replenish meaning, refresh your view, reset your purpose. Put on a record. Read a book instead. Drink deep and suck out all the marrow. Smash the screen if you must.
