Morpheus: .."You’re here because you know something. What you know, you cannot explain but you feel it. You felt it your entire life. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what i am talking about?
Neo: ‘The Matrix’
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
The matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: ‘What truth’
Morpheus: That you are a slave. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison which you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately no one can be told what the matrix is. You have to see it for yourself...
