Perceptions of Reality in a Technological World
A look at the concept of illusions and ultimate reality in a modern sense, with reference to German philosopher G.W. Leibniz.
“My reason for questioning reality once more was the release of the Wachowski Brothers film The Matrix. This science fiction film presents the idea that the world around us is an illusion. What we perceive to be reality is in fact a computer simulation (called The Matrix) which is inputted directly into our brains making us believe that we are living normal lives when in fact our inert bodies are providing heat to power the machines which, after years of human service became intelligent enough to have taken over the world.”
