The theme for the movie “The Matrix” is compatible with the Buddhist view of the world. This movie indicates that our life, work and all that surrounds us are just computer software; nothing is real.
Likewise, we live in a dream-like world. If we do not observe the world and analyze it with our wisdom, everything in it looks real to us, but if one day we start to doubt our five senses and think carefully, we will realize what an insubstantial world we live in.
