All of those are rip-offs of Plato's Algorithim of the Cave. Look it up. It's pretty interesting.

Already read it. And none those have anything in common with Algorithim of the Cave. AOTC has to do with someone "seeing the light" (or discovering that of which they believed to be true, not to be.) Returning to the cave, trying to explain their discoverings to the others who had not become wise to the truth, and having the others not believe them.

Evangelion is about how Humanity has become dirty and worthless/how pain is "reality", just as love is, and we need to learn to deal with it/ how individuality is what makes us humans...and a lot of religious symbolism (as I will explain in my essay).

FLCL is about how...uh...well, it does have a meaning some where....But not that of AOTC.

Yanah, contray to popular belief, books and movies often times do have an underlining meaning that relates to society. But I wouldnt expect you to know that.

I cannot remember, and i betcha big money you dont either, if we wanted to, overgenerations we could change the view on peoples lifes

Something like that
do you even know how vision works?

light is just bouncing off of objects which have a certain hue and it comes back and our eyes translate it into colors

and for blue being red... it's not, look.. anywhere

i think the point that whoever it was was trying to make was... what if what we believe is blue is truly red? perhaps when the person who named colors, whoever that might have been, he said what we see as blue was red. but somewhere down the line, someone decided that "red" was "blue". it becomes impossibly complicated and theres no real use in discussing it. blue is blue, red is red.

as for the matrix theory, for it to work all humans would have to be dreaming the same dream of the same world, and their dreams would have to be directly connected to the actions that happen in other peoples dreams. for instance, i could dream that there are no other cars on a road that i am driving on, and someone else could be dreaming the same thing. would we hit? if our worlds were concurrent, then yes, more than likely we would. that brings up the thought that we could all be in our own separate dream worlds... but would our minds be twisted enough to dream some of the things that happen in the world? as for a situation that is exactly like the matrix... i guess it could be possible. its ridiculous to think about, but there is no way to tell whether we are being controlled by machines outside of our dream world.

as for FLCL and eva, never seen either. i'll wait for the doctors book.

You see Yanah. You have mistaken the cartoonish look of ANIME to be children's shows. Until you see Evangelion or FLCL, shut up you arrogant baffoon.

Yanah, you need to learn to pick and choose your fights. I didn't fight about the AOTC, because hey! I wasn't right. Looks like you need to learn to do that, too.

It takes a lot of guts to admit you are wrong. Good for you Mal.

Yanah, you should be more like Mal.

This is too confusing...
About the whole "real" being real thing I think that in oreder to have evryone believing the same thing
we would have to be sent into a virtual "past"
iuntil things kept advancing until we reached the actual time we are at really and by that time someone would have had to have discovered that it wasn't real by tthen. In my opinion what is going on right now is real what ever little fake world that you are living is just like a alternate reality that might exist until you syop thinking about it . so taking what I just said we could be in the mind of a four-year-old just expirincing the trials and tribulations that he wants us to . Then if he was to die we would all die causing all of our "imagined universes" to be destroyed which might cause the imaging imagined "universe" to be destroyed so on and so on until we reach a point where the universe of the child that destyroyded our universe is destroyed causing the whole thing to start over again in some aprodox-y way.
