Why is my brother pretending to be philosophical about the "there is no spoon" line?

Actually, it is a pretty philosophical movie, we watched it for Higher Philosophy this year.

Of course there are quite a lot of people who try and do the philosophy thing without looking at the actual underlying philosophical, erm, stuff.

Did he mention Descartes at any point?

Actually, it is s fairly good movie for philosophy, we watched in class this year.

Of course trying to be philosophical about it without understanding the underlying philosophical, erm, stuff is kinda dumb.

Crap, sorry, it brought up a "cannot find server" and I assumed it hadn't posted.

Yes, it's definitely a very philosophical movie. However, it sounds to me like the problem is the fact that he picked the spoon line to wax philosophical about. That is one of the most straightforward, least subjective lines in the entire movie. Since it's all a computer simulation, there really isn't a spoon. That's all there is to it.

Nah, it's just that my brother's a fucktard. I know a lot of the philosophy behind The Matrix, and he knows it, and knows that babbling about the philosophy retardedly will annoy me.
