Grateful for my wonderful wife, for my beautiful daughter. They are gifts. And so I do what I must do to honour them. Sati: Papa, the train! Rama-Kandra: Yes! Get your bags, quickly! Neo: Can I carry that for you? Rama-Kandra: All right. Kamala: Rama! Trainman: I know you. Neo: I need to get back. Trainman: Oh? I built this place. Down here I make the rules. Down here I make the threats. Matrix: inside a car Seraph: We should return to the Oracle. We know what has to be done. Q-Ball Gang Member 1: I get it. You must be ready to die.
Seraph: I need to speak with him. Seraph: So be it. Hel Club elevator Seraph: There are no weapons allowed in the club. At the bottom of this elevator, there is a coat check girl. Seraph: There will be many men. Are you here for the bounty, Seraph? Seraph: We only want to talk. Put down the guns and I will promise you safe passage out of here.
Seraph: All three of us. Merovingian: Oh yes, yes. Of course. A fate too kind. And since you, my little Judas, have […] here, I can only surmise that the fortune teller has found herself another shell? Disappointing, but not unexpected. I do hope, however, she has the good manners to learn her lesson, and to remember that there is no action without consequence.
And if you take something from me you will pay the price. Seraph: You know why we are here. What kind of question is this? Of course I know. Some might think this a strange coincidence, but I do not. I am curious, though, as to how it actually happened. Do you know? Merovingian: No? But it is always best to ask. Morpheus: We want to make a deal. I have something you want. To make a deal, you must have something I want, yes? And it so happens there is something I want.
It is said they cannot be taken, they can only be given. Morpheus: What? Merovingian: The eyes of the Oracle. It is that nature that has again brought you to me. Where some see coincidence, I see consequence. Where others see chance, I see cost. Bring me the eyes of the Oracle, and I will give you back your saviour. That seems a particularly fair and reasonable deal to me. Yes, no? Trinity: You want to make a deal, how about this? You give me Neo, or we all die right here, right now. Merovingian: Interesting deal. You are really ready to die for this man?
Merovingian: It is remarkable how similar the pattern of love is to the pattern of insanity. Matrix: inside a car Morpheus: Are you ready for us? Link: Almost, sir. Did you find Neo? Link: No, sir. Trinity: Now? Neo: This is my last chance. Sati: Why? Oracle: Cookies need love like everything does. Sati: Neo! Oracle: I was hoping to have these done before you got here. Oh well. Sati: Okay. Neo: Me too. Oracle: So, do you recognize me? Neo: A part of you.
Some bits you lose, some bits you keep. Oracle: Remember what you were like when you first walked through my door, jittery as a junebug? And now just look at you. You sure did surprise me, Neo, and you still do. Neo: You gave me a few surprises, too. Oracle: I hope I helped.
Neo: You helped me to get here, but my question is why? Where does this go? Where does it end? Oracle: I told you before. Neo: What choice? I have mine to make, same as you have yours. Neo: Does that include what things to tell me and what not to tell me? Oracle: Of course not. Oracle: You know who. Oracle: So do I. Neo: Tell me how I separated my mind from my body without jacking in. Tell me how I stopped four sentinels by thinking it. Tell me just what the hell is happening to me.
Oracle: The power of the One extends beyond this world. It reaches from here all the way back to where it came from. Neo: Where? Oracle: The Source. To him they are variables in an equation. One at a time each variable must be solved and countered. Oracle: To unbalance it. What do you want? Oracle: I want the same thing you want, Neo. And I am willing to go as far as you are to get it. Neo: The end of the war. Oracle: One way, or another. Neo: Can Zion be saved? Oracle: You know where. Neo: What does that mean? Oracle: Everything that has a beginning has an end.
I see the end coming. I see the darkness spreading. I see death. And you are all that stands in his way. Neo: Smith. Neo: What is he? Oracle: He is you. Your opposite, your negative, the result of the equation trying to balance itself out. Oracle: One way or another, Neo, this war is going to end. Tonight, the future of both worlds will be in your hands… or in his. The core of the Hammer Trinity: How are you feeling?
Are you all right? Neo: I need time. Roland: That figures. Maggie: Captain Roland! Roland: Good. I sure am gonna miss it. Seraph: Oracle. Oracle: I know, I know. Sati, honey! Take a few cookies and go with Seraph. Sati: Can I come back? I would like to come back! Oracle: I would like that too. Oracle: I hope so, honey, I hope so.
Seraph: Come. I remember chasing you was like chasing a ghost. Seraph: I have beaten you before. Sati: The Oracle told me about you. Smith: Really? And what did she say about me? We meet at last. The all-knowing Oracle is never surprised. How can she be, she knows everything. If you did, that means you baked those cookies and set that plate right there deliberately, purposefully. Oracle: What did you do with Sati? Smith: You would know, Mom.
Roland: What about the cuts on your arms? Those cuts are more than one day old. Bane: Yeah, definitely. They look like they might be self-inflicted. Why would I do something like that to myself? Roland: Has this man been tested for VDTs? Maggie: Yes, sir, it was negative.
But he is showing a lot of unusual neural activity. Some cross-synaptic firing as well as signs of recent trauma, with fresh fibrotic scarring throughout the cortex. Make him remember. The Hammer: main deck [man]: Sir? We found her! Roland: The Logos? Morpheus: Are the thermals picking up any signs of life?
AK: No, sir. Nothing yet. Roland: What about the ship? AK: Well, [holo]graphic says the hull is still intact. Roland: Drop her down […] [Pilot]: Yes, sir. Roland: Get a full diagnostic on that ship as fast as humanly possible. Logos crash site [man]: Careful, sir!
The squids are sneaky bastards. Could be a trap. Niobe: You can put that shit away, boys. All she needs is a jump. Morpheus: Niobe. Niobe: Morpheus. Did you get Neo out? Morpheus: Yes.
How did you know about that? Niobe: The Oracle. Morpheus: You saw her? Niobe: Just before the sentinels found us. Morpheus: What did she tell you? Niobe: The same thing she always does. Exactly what I needed to hear. Zion: council room Lock: In less than 12 hours, the machines will breach the dock walls.
Thus our primary objective must be to destroy or disable the diggers inside the dock. If we can do that, perhaps we can prevent them from ever reaching the city. It is small enough that it will force them into a bottleneck, allowing us to concentrate the remainder of our defense. Lock: That is correct. Councillor West: Precisely what size of force are you planning to commit to the primary dock objective? Lock: Right now, the entire APU core and half the infantry.
Councillor West: Half the infantry? Councillor Dillard: Perhaps it is best that it is not up to you. Lock: Time will tell, Councillor. Councillor Hamann: Commander, just one more question. Has there been word from the Nebuchadnezzar? Councillor Hamann: Perhaps. But we can hope. Zee: Making shells. We have to go. Cas: What? Zee: I have to. Cas: Why?
Zee: Because I love him. And if I were out there and he were here, I know he would be doing the same thing. Zee: Maybe it is.
But ask yourself, if it were Dozer, and you knew the only chance you had to see him again was to hold the dock, what would you do? Cas: Make shells. Zion: dock Mifune: What the shit is going on over here? Kid: An accident, sir! Mifune: Who the hell are you? Kid: I want to do my part, sir! We gotta hold the dock. Mifune: How old are you, kid?
Kid: Eighteen. Mifune: Shoulda said sixteen, I mighta believed that! Kid: Give me a chance, sir. Logos: main deck Ghost v. Charge the igniter. Sparks: She lives again.

AK: You want us to patch an uplink to reload the operations software, Sparky? Looking good, except, uh… something wrong with the Matrix feed. Sparks v. Hammer: mess hall Roland: The machines have taken Junction They way I see it, if we drop down from broadcast here, [at RC], we might surprise them. We go first, hammer as deep as we can, them blow our EMP. Hopefully, we can punch a hole big enough for you to get through.
A support line. It drops down right here. A thousand meters short of Niobe: I can. Roland: Bullshit. Morpheus: That was a long time ago, Niobe. Niobe: I said I can do it. Roland: So what? Neo: Hi. But I wanted to be sure. Trinity: Sure of what? Neo: I know what I have to do. I have to take one of the ships. Roland: What? Morpheus: To go where? Neo: To the machine city. Neo: I still have to go. Neo: I have to try. Morpheus: Is this what the Oracle told you?
Neo: No. Roland: This is asinine! If you want to kill yourself, go do it, but do it without wasting one of our ships. Neo: You have to believe me, I have to go. Roland: Bullshit! Believe me, this ship will go to hell long before I let you take it anywhere. Niobe: He can take mine. He can take mine. If we leave inside an hour, we should reach Zion as the machines do. A goddamn waste. Niobe: Two ships, two directions. Morpheus: Then why are you doing this? Niobe: I believe in him. Neo: Thank you.
Maggie: To help you relax. To make it easier for you to remember. Maggie: Why would you want that? What if I did destroy those ships and I am responsible for the deaths of all those men? Something you need to understand. I knew it the moment you said you had to leave. I could see it in your face. Just like you knew the moment you looked at me that I was coming with you.
Trinity: So am I. Took me ten minutes to buckle up one boot. Six hours ago I told the Merovingian that I was ready to give anything and everything for you. Trinity: Nothing. Mauser: Just about, sir! Neo: Me, too. It was an honour, sir. The Hammer: pilot cabin Mauser v. Niobe: Bye, baby. Take good care of them. The Logos: pilot cabin Trinity: Ready?
Must be a fuse. Trinity: Bane?! Bane: No one ever got away from me as many times as you did. Every single time I thought it was the last. Trinity: What are you talking about? Bane: I think I might enjoy killing you as much as killing him. Trinity: Neo! Hammer: pilot cabin Ghost: Twenty-seven kilometers to go.
Roland: What is it, AK? I think it was Bane. Roland: Goddamn it. Hammer: main deck Roland: I knew it. I knew he was out of his goddamn mind. He fired that EMP. Goddamn it, I should have beaten it out of him.

Roland: I know where he is. Morpheus: The Logos. Link: We gotta go back! Roland: Too late. Link: Why? Logos: main deck Bane: Mr. Neo: What? Bane: It might appear that way to you, but Mr. Anderson and I know that appearances can be deceiving. Confused, Mr. Now, thank you for bringing me the gun. You can set it down right there.
Shoot now. Bane: Yes, shoot, fry us, burn us alive! Trinity: Shoot, Neo. Bane: Look at him. Trinity: Do it. Neo: Let her go. I think of nothing else. I admit, it is difficult to think, encased in this rotting piece of meat. Look at how pathetically fragile it is. Nothing this weak is meant to survive. Neo: What do you want? Bane: I want what you want. Look past the flesh, look through the soft gelatin of these dull cow eyes and see your enemy. Bane: Oh yes, Mr. Bane: Not impossible.
Goodbye, Mr. Bane: I wish you could see yourself, Mr. The blind messiah. Helpless, pathetic. Just waiting to be put out of your misery. Neo: I can see you. Neo: Trinity! Trinity: Neo. Oh no. Your eyes. Concentrate our offense on the diggers. Order the APUs into position. Zion: dock Mifune: All right, this is it. Zion: a tunnel Zee: You scared, Charra? Charra: Shit, yeah. Zee: Deal. Hammer: pilot cabin [? Niobe: Ghost, cut the auxilliary systems […] Switch to full manual, drop down to four pads. Ghost: […] Niobe: Easy, baby.
Niobe: If I can just get close enough. Niobe: Shit! Niobe: Give me full power, full systems! Morpheus, take his place! Niobe: Hold on to your lunch, [Roland,] here we go. Roland: Damn. Zion: dock Operations Officer Mattis: Breached! The dock is breached! Mifune: [Buckle] up! Zion: ammo compartment [Man]: Reload [Nine]! I want that goddamn machine taken down! Every institution will reach a point in its existence where its primary function becomes self-preservation and perpetuation, instead of serving human need.
At this point it becomes a machine of the Matrix. For example, when they become machines, governments cease to serve people and instead seek to extend their power over them; corporations prioritize increasing shareholder value over producing quality products or otherwise serving the public good; schools view students as a means and not an end; religious organizations equate membership with salvation and actively oppose other teachings and even independent practice ; and non-profits and charities spend more budget on fund raising activity than on their original focus.
Inevitably all large institutions eventually become machines. They become too big for Humanity. In addition to the independent self-perpetuating machines that write most of our paychecks, the Matrix has several major cooperative and more actively sinister groups of machines subsisting off of its power and directly contributing to the structure of the Matrix itself. These groups are the Military Industrial Complex, the Political Industrial Complex, the Prison Industrial Complex, the Surveillance Industrial Complex, the Media Industrial Complex, the Academic Industrial Complex, the Agricultural Industrial Complex, the Medical Industrial Complex and the major religious organizations not to be confused with actual religions, many religious organizatons have abandoned the underlying principles of the religions they claim to represent.
All machines in these groups either actively oppress humanity, or enable the oppression to persist. It is through their combined efforts that the Matrix takes on some of its more distasteful qualities. Resisting the Matrix Resistance is a mental state. The Matrix is designed to make it easy to accept what it tells you, and to make it hard to filter the Truth from the lies.
Resisting the Matrix requires understanding its operating principles and assumptions, rejecting them, and helping others to do the same. The Matrix is fascist, the Matrix is deceptive, and the Matrix is bureaucracy.
The Matrix is essentially the rule of the institution over the individual, and in it, the rights of the individual are subordinate to the rights of the institution. Individuals have to believe or at least not actively oppose the idea that large corporations have the right to protect their profits above all else, and thus dictate policy and law.
They have to believe that this law is just, moral, and seemingly based upon reason. Or, they have to feel unaffected by the law on an individual level. They have to accept the program, and be satisfied with the rewards given for doing so. They have to do their jobs, pay their taxes, and be content with their salary at least to the point where their salary and the stability it provides are appealing enough to deter risking leaving the Matrix. Rejecting these beliefs is the first step in resisting the Matrix.
Furthermore, people must be insulated from the creative process. They have to forget that they are able to produce craft as individuals independent of large institutions, and they must feel entirely dependent upon the system to provide them with what they need. It is mostly through the violation of this principle that many who work with computers come to free themselves, or at least come to see the Matrix for what it is.
Despite being products of the Matrix for the most part , computers and the Internet enable humans to create individual works on a global scale: independent media, self-publishing, Free Open Source Software, computer music, computer art and graphics, and so on.
Computers also enable independent people to communicate and build human-serving social structures outside of the Matrix. However, note that computers aren't the only means of accomplishing this, and this time period isn't the first one of Exodus. In the s, for example, people departed from the Matrix en-mass and independently created art, culture, and music, largely catalyzed by psychedelic drugs. Unfortunately, much of this structure collapsed due to a number of reasons, the main one being the hasty, ill-considered and unsustainable manner of its construction and the subsequent institutional and legal backlash.
Miraculously, however, many of the core ideas have persisted, and their proliferation is largely the reason I am Aware and able to write this document today. It would seem that the present catalyst is a combination of the Internet and again psychedelics. Both of these phenomena provide a way of disconnecting yourself from the programmed reality and assumptions of the Matrix and taking your perceptions into your own hands.
However, your "perception" is nothing but your individual dream that you have created as you have gone through life. There is the dream of the society that has been passed down generation after generation and instilled into your mind by your parents, friends, schools, and institutions.
- Nur eine Tochter: Eine Frau verändert Afghanistan (German Edition)!
- Candida Höfer - Weimar (German Edition);
- Wikipedia talk:Peer review/The Matrix/archive1.
- Die Antwort kennt nur der Wind (German Edition).
And then there is your individual dream. Each step of the way in your life you have lived subjectively, and depending upon how and where you grew up, who you hung around with, and the habits you formed, you created your little dream. Your "theory" on life while you stay completely unconscious of this. Everything that you think is "you", "I", "me", and everything you believe that you identify with is simply not you.
It is not the truth. It is part of the giant web of individual dreams that everyone is in the clutches of on our planet. This is one of the main reasons why this world is the way it is, why it is so chaotic. You will scorn anyone who does not dream what you dream of, and someone will do the same to you. It is impossible for us to live the same individual dream because we cannot know everything about each other down to our core. It is a constant fog that grows bigger and bigger and more dense as each day passes. It is your ego and it is my ego. The dream is not real.
If we want to even begin to understand what it means to exist as a human being on this planet and evolve, this truth must be learned and it is just the beginning. Somewhere along the way, the entities that have been running the show figured out how the ego works, and they have been doing a damn good job at distracting us from trying to find a way out of our dreams and the dream of society. Psychedelics are simply a tool, but one of many to truly explore and expand your consciousness. However, whether it be psychedelic substances or meditation, it is not the ultimate answer.
It is simply showing you the door, but it is your choice whether or not you want to enter into the other side. To persist, the Matrix requires control, and in democratic societies it maintains this control by filtering people's view of reality through corporate-owned mass media and television. In essence, the Matrix requires a form of thought control, but not in the science fiction sense.
Instead, it achieves an effective enough manner of thought control by manufacturing consent. The large majority of the public has to "buy in". They have to believe that the news media give them an accurate picture of the world. And by and large, they do believe this. Everything the general public knows about the world, they know through the Matrix. The symbols and images the Matrix presents to them have become more real than reality itself. Hence the popularity of the ungodly abomination that is Reality TV. Note that while some media outlets do actively promote a political agenda of domination and control, on the whole it is not through some grand conspiracy that this process or any process of the Matrix functions.
It is simply the way mass media is organized. Mass media is a machine that exists as a profit maximizing entity, and the most profitable news and the cheapest news to produce is recycled soundbytes and pre-packaged press releases from corporations and government. Furthermore, in the interest of preserving its revenue stream, news media cannot allow the public to hold any opinion that may threaten the authority and policy of government or the profitability of their sponsors, which are also machines of the Matrix and almost always directly involved in the business of domination and control.
Thus the media must perpetuate the status quo.
No news is good news. Understanding this bias in the media is key to undoing the filter it applies. Consider who the advertisers and sponsors are. Beware of press releases disguised as investigative reporting. A lot of the time these sources also cover many eye-popping items that for some reason don't even receive mention on corporate news media. Last, and most assuredly not least, the Matrix seeks to identify and know its members at all times, in a misguided attempt to maintain control.
It demands total surrender of your privacy to function in it. It is by breaking this last property of the Matrix that we come to truly free ourselves from it; to create economies, communication, and culture independent of its control. Of course, the ultimate form of resistance is to fully disconnect from any and all dependence upon and allegiance to government and institution; to remove yourself from the power structure of the Matrix, and contribute your economic output to resistance economies. It is this form of resistance that faces the most violent opposition from the Matrix, since providing this economic power is the primary function of Humanity, as it sees it.
Unfortunately for many this form of resistance is simply unattainable due to family and social ties, especially starting from your first realization of the size and scope of the Matrix. However, unlike in movie, it is possible to liberate yourself gradually instead of immediately, and in some cases this can prove easier than an 'all-at-once' attempt. It starts with disconnecting. You should be able to get all your information and entertainment from the web, or from real reality or from the occasional movie. Avoid chain stores where possible, especially for food.
Supporting smaller especially sustainable business keeps entrepreneurial and independent business spirit alive. Getting and staying out of debt especially debt without equity, or rapidly depreciating equity such as car loans is crucial, as debt is a primary mechanism the Matrix uses to ensure your obedience. Also, if you are a salaried employee, working a 40 hour or perhaps even 35 hour work week can be a big start to declaring your freedom from the machine and the corporate American peer-pressure to be a diligent slave.
It also frees up huge amounts of mental energy which is then available for resistance. From here, a limited form of resistance whereby you leave the Matrix for short periods of time long enough to conduct purchases, business transactions, and communications with the underground is well within the reach of all computer literate individuals, and functioning as a consumer is sufficiently supportive of the Anonymous Economy for it to be sustainable. Moreover, the probability of discovery of this sort of activity can be reduced as much as you choose.
As you progress, you will notice yourself developing one or more separate identities, or pseudonyms. It is best to build as much insulation between these nyms as possible. They shouldn't appear to know each other, shouldn't really talk about the same stuff or buy the same things, and above all should be diligently separated from your original physical identity. Maintain different wallets, bags, user accounts and possibly even computers. In short, develop one or more Tyler Durdens, except without all the insanity, self-destruction, and sociopathic behavior.
Or with it, if it helps. The adept and the entrepreneurial will find it an easy step from here to total freedom. The next stage is to go into business for yourself. It doesn't have to be an anonymous business, but those who manage such an achievement do enjoy the satisfaction that they are directly subverting the Matrix and helping to weaken its hold on everyone. Subverting the Matrix While resisting the Matrix is an act of mental rebellion, subverting the Matrix is an act of social revolution.
It requires understanding the types of human communities that exist outside of the control of the Matrix. It also requires understanding what sustains them, and if and how they directly or indirectly weaken the structure and control of the Matrix. Once you understand this, it is possible to intelligently align yourself with communities that actively weaken the control of the Matrix. Gift Culture Gift Culture also known as Free Culture, or the Gift Economy is a social structure where your status is determined by how much you are able to give away. It is not mutually exclusive to any other economic system, and examples of gift economies exist on top of capitalist, communist and socialist economies.
Gift culture has brought forth some of the most astounding recent achievements of the human race, including the scientific research community, much of the World Wide Web, the entire Open Source movement, vulnerability and security research, and Wikipedia, just to name a few examples. Gift economies tend to function best in the digital world, where something can be given without reducing the inventory of the giver.
However, the Burningman project is a massive experiment in bringing Gift Culture back into the physical world, and quite successful at that. Well over 35, people populate Black Rock City in the middle of the desert every year to give as much as they can to each other. The event serves in part as a model for the time when energy becomes abundant and human beings are capable of interstellar space travel.
Obviously the burning of The Man is the climax of the event. This is no small coincidence either. Gift culture does subvert the primary mechanisms of the Matrix. The Matrix subsists by transforming human endeavor into economic output which it uses to maintain its control. Gift culture, on the other hand, releases human endeavor for the good of all who would receive it. When items are given instead of sold, the power and control obtained through ownership is eliminated. Furthermore, in the case of Open Source Software, the fact that full freedom over the source code is also given means that code that the Matrix would never willingly create is readily available for the purposes of this HOWTO.
It is interesting to note that even machines of the Matrix are motivated to participate in gift culture - especially in the Open Source movement. It benefits many corporations as well as governments to have a common reference platform upon which they can build their individual products and infrastructures. Their cooperation in building this common platform vastly reduces the cost they would have paid to develop their own platform in-house, and is also inevitably cheaper than paying a single entity to do the same.
The combined experience and widely distributed expertise, as well as the flexibility of modifying the common platform to perform a wide variety of tasks, yields a better system for all, and cheaper. In the digital world where copies are free, capitalism compels Gift Culture. Unfortunately, some companies, such as Amazon. Other symptoms of this problem include Microsoft's war on the security research community, and the tendency of even State funded University Professors to refuse to provide Open Source reference implementations of their work.
There are mechanisms discussed in this HOWTO that enable this trend to be reversed, which leads us nicely into the next cultural segment. The idea behind Information Anarchy is that all information should be as widely and freely disseminated as possible. The cultural ethos is vehemently at odds with Intellectual Property, and refuses to recognize any such law or suffer any code that abridges free exchange of information. Needless to say, the machines of the Matrix don't take too fond a view on this ideology.
Unlike gift culture, which is an indirect subversion of the mechanisms of the Matrix, Information Anarchy directly challenges the Matrix's perceived right of ownership of human ideas. The past decade has seen an unprecedented decline in the freedom of information due to some of the more rabid elements of the Matrix. Recent examples include the DMCA, extension of copyright duration, the harsh criminalization of copyright infractions, and the resulting side-effects which lead to the criminalization of certain forms of technology.
The legal climate for free speech and innovation has never looked darker. However, hope is not lost. The future looks so dark precisely for the reason that Information Anarchy poses such a grave threat to a major power source for so many parasitical machines. On some level, the Matrix knows its hold is tenuous. At every opportunity, the Matrix will tell you that protecting Intellectual Property encourages creativity.
It has even developed an amusing array of propaganda to promote this idea, even going so far as to begin the brainwashing at an early age. Yes, the National Counterintelligence Executive is in fact a real office of the US government, apparently one of its major propaganda arms. Their stuff is hilarious. I recommend printing some out at your local copy shop before it becomes classic. All of this nonsense is observably false. Societies have always been most successful when communication and ideas were open to all. It is important to remember that the world didn't always operate this way, it was only when the ruling elite of the Matrix realized that ideas and creative expression are easily converted to economic power that they took claim over them.
Economic systems can and will adapt to a form that is more profitable for human creators instead of their machine owners. In every opportunity possible, do not support the system of Intellectual Property that the Matrix has created. Naturally as its power wanes, it will become weaker and less relevant, as content creators seek their pay through other means.
The cancer starves, and dies. The Anonymous Internet Economy. So as of late, a major source of the erosion of civil liberties stems from the fact that casual economic transactions are becoming increasingly difficult to conduct without permanent, identifiable information being associated with them. With the advent and increase in the volume of Internet commerce, casual purchases of personal items, books, software, and even medication are now irrevocably tied to your own personal identity. Bookstores such as Amazon now build complete dossiers of sorts on their customers reading habits, and much of this information is available publicly.
As a result, the natural reaction to these circumstances is to find methods to make Internet commerce behave more like physical commerce, where you have the option of anonymity by using cash or cash-backed identity free payment methods. An Anonymous Internet Economy. The Matrix is providing massive economic incentive to create this economy as well. Consider how easy it would be for them to demand records of everyone at Amazon who might like to buy a particular book, or who has ordered "indecent" materials from websites? Amazon already does classification of consumer's interests for marketing purposes.
