Hi guys... An old TLR member here

Hi guys, I used to frequent these forums back in 2001. Pre and Post Freelancer. My first hook into the genre was P2:TD. Freelancer didn't quite make it for me although I do play it every now and then and i'm always impressed at how awesome it is/was. I've had an itch for a good space sim since P2:TD. I used to hang about here with Bargib, Stinger, Eraser, Tachyon, Milod just to name a few. There were so many and they were a great bunch. I can't remember them all. btw where is bargib? kumari -- L...

The Matrix - philosophy discussions and MAJOR spoilers

i´m willing to accept this M and P possibility but i just figured like what Arcon said. Except i thought maybe persephone arrived after Merv. I never thought Neo had died (for some strange reason). But i spose he might have. The oracle seems to think he´ll be back. I don´t think the script was ever that good tawa. Some interesting dialogues came up in m2 (in the engineering level) and so on. And the meeting with the oracle. I thought that was just loaded with great concepts. Suble suggestions...

Yo mustang! I think that´s fantasy fiction they wanted to throw in. He is the one after all <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> But i was keen to hear the explanation too and unfortunately it was not to be. I´d like to think it was a power given to him (or enhanced) by people believing in him. (for example at the end of the 3rd movie.) A few of the big unexplained ones for me are &quot;what´s the deal with the trainstation&quot; and &quot;what was ...

i didn´t pick up on smith calling neo &quot;neo&quot;. That´s pretty cool. They were definately playing with the &quot;can´t see past the choices u don´t understand&quot;. Smith didn´t understand much <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I still don´t see how he was destroyed or how the others were destroyed with him. It´s funny to think that he assimilated everyone. I´ll bet the maravingian got his jollies out of it <img src=smilies/icon_smile...

A number of extra parameters such as goal state have not been specified. The puzzle was not meant to be &quot;a puzzle&quot;. It was not meant for discussion. I just wanted to give an example of different kinds of conclusions. I think some are quite important and others are not so much. I´m sorry Indy some of your sentences aren´t clear to me. In response: I agree that there´s only so far you can take the &quot;puzzle&quot; without specifying a goal. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 h...

i dunno about the &quot;couldn´t handle that neo had CHOICE and overloaded&quot; idea. Perhaps it had something to do with that but neo had always had a choice. Perhaps it was only when agent smith realised it... i´d like to think it was something slightly more complicated tho. kumari --- &quot;You are ALL my brothers and sisters.&quot;

There was a moment when smith assimilated the oracle. A pause. A moment of doubt... i sat there in the cinema thinking &quot;hang on... what just happened?&quot; Smith gained something from assimilating the oracle. (foresight.) I don´t think it´s illogical to suggest that he also gained that which destroyed him. {i think there´s a fundamental problem with all this tho. How is it that all the smiths are connected? How did they all die at once? For example if one of them caught a virus the othe...

The Matrix - philosophy discussions and MAJOR spoilers

{The layered reference in Revolutions went like this: The 3rd movie begins in the usual way with a real close up on some green characters and zooms out to become a city of matrix numbers/letters (in the image that neo sees things) - THEN the city of numbers and letters zooms out to become a character on link´s screen (i think it´s the number 4 or something). At the completion of the movie i didn´t recall any other &quot;layer&quot; references so i figured it was just a red-herring they threw ...

&quot;Is neo a program?&quot; I don´t think that´s the idea. Even morpheus need not be a program in the layered theory (afaik). I don´t like the layered theory. It´s too easy to fit it to anything, very open ended.

All of the above and more i´d say <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> It´s such a broad topic and the particular meaning needs to be clarified from time to time.

I would venture that a major difference between these definitions is conclusions. Personally i shy away from the word...

dude that totally sux! @gromit i love learning new things every day. @tawa i discuss and explore philosophy every day and i´m probably worse than all of you on &quot;modern&quot; philosophy or whatever else. But i don´t see that as important. To me philosophy is about exploring ideas and expanding the mind and asking questions and exploring different answers. And i´m sure almost anyone can do that. If u wanted to make a life out of philosophy then i´m sorry for your dismay but otherwise i sa...

Ok guys i´m sorry - allow me to explain myself. I´m not feeling heavy at all. Sorry if u think i am. &quot;Firstly Spectre is in no way a fascist (i believe we´ve all known him long enough to suss that one out)&quot; I didn´t say he was a fascist i said i don´t appreciate his fascism. One is a personal complaint (never appropriate imo) and one is a complaint about an action or expression. I feel that the former is really nasty and never meant to sound like that. <font size=1 face="trebuchet...
