The Matrix

Obvious reasons for the movie's success

Beautiful people

Great music

Amazing special effects

Disgust: gore

violence, love, great ending

Seductive idea in the Matrix: the world around you isn't the real world. Some examples of how this is kind of true.

Pictures in magazines that have been photoshopped give you an unrealistic idea of what real people are like.

Conservative and liberal "news" stations try to give their viewers a view of the world that isn't real (but it is shocking and attention getting.

"Filter Bubble"

The supposed "knockout game" - the news plays in our fears to gain viewership.

Book: "Trust Me I'm lying"

Law of attraction, The Secret: unrealistic ideas about how people can change their thinking and the "magic" that results from it.

What does it mean?

A lot of "heavy sounding" philosophy

Joseph Campbell

"Neo, sooner or later you're going to realize, just as I did, that there's a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path." takes courage - confront your fears

We all have this deep seated belief that there is something very special about us.

Psychologists: can you change your thinking so you can "see" a different world around you?

"Cognitive Restructuring"

Skinner: "if you change your situation you'll change your thinking"

You can learn to see the world differently but it's not easy to change the way you think and it doesn't take place overnight as in the movies. Learning to think differently requires constant monitoring of your thoughts - comparing them to what is realistic and coaching yourself to think differently.
