"The Matrix makes numerous references to philosophy including Buddhism, Vedanta, Advaita Hinduism, Christianity, Messianism, Judaism, Gnosticism, existentialism and nihilism. The film's premise resembles Plato's Allegory of the cave, Descartes's evil demon, Kant's reflections on the Phenomenon versus the Ding an sich, Zhuangzi's "Zhuangzi dreamed he was a butterfly", Marxist social theory and the brain in a vat thought experiment."
"So what you are saying is that Matrix management is like an adult version of the kids game "your it" . It is amazing how childhood games model what happens in adulthood. Kids have very good insights into what is going on in the world."
"I understand the reasoning for matrix management, and under ideal circumstances it might work. However, circumstances are rarely ideal, which would draw the average reader to the same conclusion. Matrix management is like socialisim, it simply doesn't work most of the time, and the proof is in the results. For my part, I have moved on from that environment, and will never work for another organization that supports matrix management."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
