needs a bit of patience, it takes (exactly) 5 minutes to figure it out.

Very interesting. Enjoyed all the different game brain interfaces.

not so much "matrix" but definitely Existenz, which I dont recommend anyone ever watch. ever.This is much better, and much shorter.

Fascinating! Opening almost made me click away but I trust your judgement on these things. And it is brilliant, but jeez, - On the one hand, look at the brilliant close proximity of amazing technology. On the other hand, what a trecherous panacea.

Reminds me of Tad Williams's Otherland, written in 1996.

Unbelievably good film.

Like a modern/ future version of Plato's Cave. Even more direct since instead of being transfixed in the cave, you're transfixed in the paradise outside of the cave, looking at shadows.

Pretty well done, also hinting at some higher consciousness that is a part of all of us possibly?

Thanks for sharing, Ze.
