I got news for you pal, LOTR has 50 times the real world 'thinking' references that the Matrix has. I've read numerous reviews of the matrix where the critic criticized the ignorant portion of audience for thinking there was intellectual commentary where there was none. The best example is "There is no spoon" That means NOTHING to anyone in the real world!

You know not, that you know not.
But then again, ignorance is Bliss.
