I want to be like Neo
on 5/9/2004 (3)
Well, I just watched the original Matrix for the 12th time, and there is something in Neo's character, played by Keanu Reeves, that inspires far beyond the flesh, and transcends into the ethereal, into something much grander than life itself.
|I want to be Neo. |
I want to be like Neo.
I want to wear flowing black leather capes, boots and tunic, and be in impeccable, slender physical form. I want to be part of an endeavor where the fate of the world is in the balance. I want to be a master of the martial arts. I want to battle computer generated villians named Smith. I want Morpheus to be my friend and mentor, and Trinity to be my lover.
I want to be Neo.
I would also like to be like Daniel Jackson, the archaeologist from the series 'Stargate SG-1'. I want to know thousands of languages and travel to the ruins of alien worlds and unravel the mystery of the origin of the human species, and the meaning of existence. I want to marry an Egyptologist and have two children, a son and a daughter. I want to wear horn rimmed glasses and be an intellectual geek. I want to read and speak ancient Egyptian.
I want to be Daniel Jackson.
I want to be a Shaolin master. I want to possess ageless wisdom, and tutor the young in the ways of the Dragon, to love peace, but to train as a warrior. I want the Mark of the Shaolin burned into my forearms. I want to carry a Katana sword and meditate. I want to live in the misty shadows of the Great serpent mountains and glory in the rising sun each morning.
I want to be a Shaolin master.
I want to be the Terminator. The mechanical Terminator, who was programmed to protect John Connor. I want to be programmed with protocol that prevents me from harming others, or harming myself. I want a microchip in my head with all of the knowledge ever collected by the human race on it. I want to survive head on collisions with liquid Nitrogen filled tankers and brush off bullets like cool rain. I want to be invincible.
I want to be the Terminator.
I want to be like Jean luc Picard. I want to Captain a Starship and explore distant regions of the galaxy. I want to fight the Borg. I want to follow the Prime Directive and respect alien culture with the wisdom of a Shaolin master.
I want to be Jean luc Picard.
I want to be like Homer Simpson...
Wait, I am like Homer Simpson...
