The Matrix is not a myth because everything expressed by Wachowski has been discovered thousands years ago. Wachowski brothers just collected and extracted this knowledge modernizing it for a wide audience. Alexandra Lazar states that the idea of “formlessness of chaos” can be found in: “Chinese and the Babylonian creation stories” (Lazar, 2004). She illustrates that “the dragon represents the principle of order, which emerges from chaos. In Babylonian myth, the Goddess Tiamat together with other early gods embodied the various faces of chaos” (Lazar, 2004). In general, every universal religion has such binary oppositions: good-evil, chaos-order, hell-paradise, etc. Probably, the fact that Matrix is based on binary opposition helps to explain why it is so successful in our society. Everything around us is based on this concept: love-hate. truth-lie, etc.
