THE MATRIX, PHOTOSHOP, AGE OF TECHNOLOGY…WHAT’S WHAT?
…A computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.
I take you back to the scene which, in my opinion, is most controversial: Taking the red pill opens the soon-to-be Neo’s eyes to the fantasy that he had been living in. Morpheus says to Neo “You have to understand that many people are not ready to be unplugged, and many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.” (Contrast with taking the blue pill. If Neo would have taken the blue pill, he would have stayed within the Matrix and been blind to reality.)
By contrast, The Matrix was a critical and financial darling, and as of this writing, still ranks with an 8.7 out of 10 rating on IMDB. While The Matrix didn’t have The Phantom Menace’s built in audience, it did seem to have fulfilled…

Many of my followers will not get this analogy right away as The Matrix movies are geared towards the younger generation and that of the Age of Technology. However, the fact remains that there MAY BE some truth to this “take the red pill”! I wanted answers and answers I got!
Shout out to my instructor “RL”!…he, always encourages his students to remember that we took the “Red Pill” when we advanced to his course. Photoshop is AMAZING to say the least. I work with CS5 Extended version and I have to say, some of the things I can do with photographs from digital cameras, commercial cd of digital images, captured video images and artwork created in drawing programs has amazed me. What is Photoshop?…basically, its a graphics editing software: click here for more information. I can take images of two totally different people and merge or infuse them into a whole new person. How’s that for a God-like complex? Seriously though, I have found that my clients are asking me to restore old photos of ancestors that have been well preserved for just such an opportunity! I am happy to provide the service.
There has always been some kind of “conspiracy theory”…in EVERY generation. I believe what I see. However, when working with Photoshop the way I have, I’m almost certain that what you see MAY NOT always be what is actually REAL. I have stopped believing what I see in magazines, movies and images I see of celebrities….there are just WAY TOO MANY things that could have been done to “enhance” the appearance.
My goal is simple and my motives are pure. I want to help the person who needs information on how to sort through this entire MATRIX-like world and live comfortably while keeping up-to-date with what’s going on in the world.
More importantly, is the fact that today’s age of technology has thrust EVERYONE… into a position of great advancement. Some are willing to make the change while others are quite reluctant. I even find myself drawn to old ways when it comes to acclimating myself in new technologies, such as YouTube, social networking, internet businesses, SEO [search engine optimization]…. (still working on that), and a multitude of other avenues……millions and millions of people have taken their ideas and turned them into lucrative businesses, by way of this new and rapidly advance age. I’m excited about it. I still have much to learn, but the possibilities are endless when you stop to think about it. Like California and its coined phrase (you can sue ANYBODY for ANYTHING), the internet has endless potential…well at least until the government takes over…. (more will be revealed)…..
