2,066.  Do you ever have that feeling where you are not sure if you are awake of dreaming?  (GBH Films & Life’s Like That & Dream & Science Fiction Films & Simulation Theory)  The Matrix 1999 starring Keanu Reeves & Laurence Fishburne & Carrie-Anne Moss & Hugo Weaving & Joe Pantoliano & Gloria Foster & Marcus Chong & Julian Arahanga & Matt Doran & Belinda McClory et al, directors Andy & Lana Wachowski

 

2,067.  Let me tell you why you are here.  You’re here because you know something.  What you know you can’t explain.  But you feel it.  You have felt it your entire life.  That there is something wrong with the world.  You don’t know what it is, but it’s like there’s a splinter in your mind driving you mad.  It is this feeling that has brought you to me.  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Do you want to know what it is?  The Matrix is everything.  All around us ... It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.  That you are a slave, Neil.  Like everyone else you were born into bondage.  Born into a prison you cannot smell or touch.  A prison for your mind.  (GBH Films & Life’s Like That & World & Truth & Slave & Prison & Science Fiction Films & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  Morpheus

 

2,102.  You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.  You take the red pill – you stay in wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.  (GBH Films & Science Fiction Films & Pill & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,184.  What is the Matrix?  Control.  The Matrix is a computer-generated dreamworld built to keep us under control in order to change a human being into this [holds battery].  (GBH Films & Science Fiction Films & Control & Humanity & Computer & Machine & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

23,629.  Never send a human to do a machine’s job.  (GBH Films & Science Fiction Films & Humanity & Machine & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  man in black  

 

23,630.  A virus.  Human beings are a disease.  A cancer of this planet.  You are a plague.  (GBH Films & Science Fiction Films & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

4,158.  I’m going to be honest with you.  I hate this place.  This zoo.  This prison.  This reality, or whatever you want to call it.  I can’t stand it any longer.  It’s the smell.  (GBH Films & World & Reality & Prison & Smell & Science Fiction Films & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  man in black to Morpheus

 

 

118,939.  I just wish I knew what I’m supposed to do.  (GBH Films & Science Fiction & Do & Simulation Theory)  The Matrix Reloaded 2003 starring Keanu Reeves & Laurence Fishburne & Hugo Weaving & Carrie-Anne Moss & Jada Pinkett Smith & Gloria Foster & Harold Perrineau & Monica Bellucci & Lambert Wilson et al, director Wachowski brothers, him to her

 

118,940.  I believe very soon the prophecy will be fulfilled.  (GBH Films & Science Fiction & Prophecy & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  Morpheus

 

120,439.  We are here because we are not free.  (Science Fiction Films & Free & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  Agent Smith

 

 

120,440.  He won’t let you.  I don’t like him – the Train Man.  (Science Fiction Films & Simulation Theory)  The Matrix Revolutions 2003 starring Keanu Reeves & Laurence Fishburne & Carrie-Anne Moss & Hugo Weaving & Jada Pinkett Smith & Mary Alice & Harry J Lennix & Harold Perrineau & Lambert Wilson & Monica Bellucci et al, directors The Wachowskis, young girl  

 

120,441.  Nothing works out just the way you want it to.  (Science Fiction Films & Life’s Like That & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  The Oracle

 


2,790.  Mathematics seem to permeate Nature ... almost as if God is a master mathematician who has constructed the universe in mathematical forms.  (Science & Nature & Mathematics & Astronomy & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)   Horizon: A Mathematical Problem, BBC 1984   

 

 

2,791.  This universe we live in: scientists have discovered some remarkably strange things about it.  So strange they are having to use the most disturbing principles to describe what’s going on.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Laws & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: The Anthropic Principle, BBC 1987

 

2,792.  The Anthropic Principle: The universe was anthropicentric – the hub of all creation was man.  (Universe & Life & Astronomy & Cosmology & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,793.  Galileo’s masterstroke was to discover that what goes on around us depends on mathematical laws.  (Universe & Astronomy & Mathematics & Cosmology & Laws & Anthropic Principle & Galileo & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

86,176.  In the 1920s physicist Niels Bohr found that Newton’s Laws break down at the atomic level.  The replacement Quantum Theory ... showed that the electron orbiting the atomic nucleus doesn’t look like this at all.  It’s more smudged out, more like a ripple or a wave.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,177.  We have to record some kind of measurement to know where an electron is.  In fact, until we decide to find out where the electron is by doing an experiment to observe it the electron as a material entity cannot be really said to exist.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,178.  That by our acts of observation we bring things into existence, at least in the realm of the very small, is supported by scientific experiment.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,179.  If we bring the tiny world of the Quantum to existence by our observations, do we need any other mechanism to account for the whole of reality?  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

2,794.  So what are we?  A statistical accident.  Where are we?  Nowhere special.  Where are we going?  Into oblivion.  A meaningless hiccup in the blank procession of matter through time.  It’s a tatty destiny.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Meaning of Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

2,795.  The Anthropic Principle seems well named – forget other intelligences; the universe may well have given rise to man alone.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

2,796.  Weak Anthropic Principle: A universe remarkably in sympathy with our existence.  Strong Anthropic Principle: A universe that gave birth to man.  Participatory Anthropic Principle: a universe that man helps to create by his observations and understanding.  Final Anthropic Principle: A universe in while life will never die out and where knowledge will increase for ever.  (Universe & Astronomy & Cosmology & Life & Anthropic Principle & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

 

7,525.  A super civilisation wouldn’t just make one perfect simulation of the past ... If the computer of the future is churning out billions of simulations, how do we know we’re living in the original real world and not one of the billions of copies?  In fact the odds against us being real are billions to one against.  (Computer & Time & Meaning of Life & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: Time Trip, BBC 2003

 

7,526.  Now we’re told we may not even be real.  Instead we may merely be part of a computer system.  Our free will, as Newton suggested, is probably an illusion.  And just to rub it in, we are being controlled by a super-intelligent superior being.  (Computer & Time & Meaning of Life & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

 

80,756.  Welcome to the weird world of quantum reality: where nothing is quite what is seems ... A remarkable experiment that puts the very existence of reality into question: known to physicists as the Double Slit experiment its remarkable because it reveals two astonishing paradoxes about the nature of reality no-one can fully explain.  (Quantum Physics & Experiment & Simulation Theory)  Horizon: What is Reality? BBC 2010

 

79,287.  Single photons ... What you get is something completely different: even though only single photons of light are being fired through the slits they don’t create two lines, they mysteriously create three.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.  

 

79,289.  According to this theory the photon of light faces two slits; it doesn’t split in two – it splits the world in two.  Every photon in the double slit experiment creates a new parallel world.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

79,288.  If you put detectors by the slits, the mysterious behaviour stops.  The photons behave just like bullets.  Take the detectors away – the multiple stripes mysteriously re-appear.  So what is going on?  Rather astonishingly it seems we can change the way reality behaves just by looking at it.  But this means reality has a secret life of its own.  (Light & Photon & Multiverse & Parallel Universe & Reality & Quantum Physics & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,385.  So reality turns out to be stranger that we ever imagined.  Everything has the power to be in two places at once.  But we will never see it.  It is all very peculiar.  (Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,683.  The most important particle of all - the Higgs Boson ... The Higgs is now Fermilab’s Number One priority.  But they aren’t the only ones looking for it.  They have competition.  From the biggest particle accelerator of them all – the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.  It is more than three times as powerful.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Higgs Boson & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

86,164.  The quantumness of reality is apparently very sensitive.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.

 

84,679.  What goes on beneath these fields in the Tevitron are some of the most violent collisions in the universe.  Deep underground in a four-mile vacuum pipe, encased by super-conducting magnets, they smash together two sub-atomic particles at close to the speed of life.  (Particle & Quantum Physics & Particle Accelerator & Matter & Reality & Simulation Theory)  ibid.
