This quote is from the Matrix. I just laid down a similar line on a comment thread somewhere here in the blogosphere and it sounded vaguely familiar. I looked it up and laughed out loud… See if you can find the relevance to which I speak. ( If someone has already has done this, (I’ve been out of the loop for a while) please feel free to post the link below… ) After all, it’s what friends do. They tease each other….

Deprogramming David Anderson

Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you’re fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can’t win. It’s pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?

My, how I love the intricacies of blogging….
