Transcript of Matrix
Dreams can seem almost as realistic as the real world, but there is always a difference.
There are differences between the dream world and the real world due to sensory experience. The experience of hallucinations show a difference between the two and relate to the real world more. These differences are displayed through the emotions and effects on the body. Sensory and imagistic experiences are the grouping for each psychological state. The Matrix places the human race in an imagistic psychological state as opposed to sensory.
Hallucinations Vs Dreams
Dreams and Consciousness
“What is real? How do you define real? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, the real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”
Effects On the Emotions and Body
The Matrix explores the interconnection between the body, the brain, and the mind.
There are two different kinds of humans within the Matrix
Physical sensations within the Matrix
Quote: You are a slave Neo, you have been born into a prison that cannot smell or taste or touch, a prison for your mind.

Relation to movie
The Matrix is a dream state because people have the ability to change what is around them, such as a spoon. If the world was a hallucination, they would not be able to change their surrounding because they cannot change what their senses are telling them.
Depends on the psychological state - imagistic or sensory.
Hallucinations are based off sensory experience and dreams are from the imagination.
People in the matrix may not have total control, but they could be in a state of lucid dreaming.
In the Matrix, people are kept in a perpetual state of sleep, with their entire reality being a continuous dream (they make references to “dreaming” and “waking up”).
The people must be dreaming because there are some people that can control the environment which cannot be done if they were in a sensory psychological state because people cannot change what their senses are telling them.
“Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. Neo: What truth? Spoon boy: There is no spoon. Neo: There is no spoon? Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.”
Seeing’s believing, but touching’s the truth.
” A hallucination is discovered when the hand passes through it. Though not immune to deception, but regarded as more reliable.
Descartes’ dream argument: dreams and waking life can have the same content. There is similarity between the two experiences for dreamers to be routinely deceived into believing that they are having waking experiences while actually asleep and dreaming.
In theory, reality and dreams don't have too many differences to tell if you're really dreaming (method of doubt).
Antti Revonsuo says dreaming is a form of pure consciousness
Matrix means "womb" (an environment or material in which something develops; a surrounding medium or structure)
"If you're killed in the Matrix, you can die here?"
"Your mind makes it real"
The Matrix was designed to be like the real world that it is near impossible to tell that you’re in it unless you have prior knowledge that it’s fake.
The Matrix is nothing like real dreaming
The body cannot live without the mind
Neo tries the jump program and actually get hurt when he wakes up from the simulator
