PAPER TOPIC III

The Matrix Hypothesis

"What is 'real'? How do you define 'real'?
If you're talking about what you can feel,
what you can smell, what you can taste and see,
then 'real' is simply electrical signals intepreted by your brain.
This is the world that you know.
The world as it was at the end of the 20th century.
It exists now only as part of a neural interactive simulation
that we call "The Matrix." You've been living in a dream world, Neo.
This is the world as it exists today."

- Morpheus, THE MATRIX
