9780312322649: Matrix Warrior: Being the One

Finally comes the ultimate book for all those seeking to know more about the philosophy behind The Matrix and its sequels. Suppose that this world is not what it seems, and that humanity is actually just a food source supplementing a reign of machines. Welcome to the premise behind the world of The Matrix: the movie phenomenon and massive box-office series that has also produced some of film's most intelligent and thoughtful moments in the last ten years.

In the Matrix movies, "reality" is just a dreamscape, a representation that six billion points of view agree to agree is "real." So if the only reality we know is a cunning and elaborate façade, what then does that signify for us? Matrix Warrior gives us the means to understand this premise and its implications on our knowledge of self and place. Combining an in-depth examination of the film with philosophical inquiry and the teachings of Castandeda, Jake Horsley has produced in Matrix Warrior a profound yet witty analysis-and all readers need to get "unplugged."

About the Author:

Jake Horsley is a world traveler, film surgeon, moviemaker, fledgling sorcerer, and agent provocateur, currently at large somewhere in the matrix.

From Booklist:

When it hit the screen in 1999, The Matrix captured the imaginations of people living in a world becoming dependent on increasingly sophisticated technology. Much has been made of the film's computer-generated world, known as the matrix, and the few who escape it, including Neo, the movie's (and its sequels') hero, who transcends the matrix and sees its programming. Horsley draws connections between the world of the movie and our own world and shows how the characters in the movie transcend the false reality the matrix imposes on humanity. The matrix program focuses on humanity's most superficial, exterior desires, but once someone has "seen through the matrix, there is absolutely nothing they could ever want from it." In the conclusion to the movie trilogy, Matrix Revolutions (opening this month), moviegoers will find out whether Neo and company can defeat the matrix, and this accessible, entertaining book will be an enjoyable companion for those who want to dig deeper into the movies' rich universe.
