Sophia Stewart & Ed Small - Mother of The Matrix & The Terminator
September 16, 2010
Sophia Stewart is a writer who has been called the "Mother of the Matrix". In 1981 she wrote and later copyrighted her work called "The Third Eye" which she claims is the basis for the movies "The Terminator" and "The Matrix". Sophia Stewart talks with us about her case and the creative ideas behind the story contained in "The Third Eye". A six-year dispute has ended which involved Sophia Stewart, the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers. Sophia Stewart's allegations, involving copyright infringement and racketeering, were well received and completely acknowledged by the Central District of California. According to court documentation, "an FBI investigation discovered that more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original film, in an attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement. The investigation also stated that 'credible witnesses employed at Warner Brothers came forward, claiming that the executives and lawyers had full knowledge that the work in question did not belong to the Wachowski Brothers.' These witnesses claimed to have seen Stewart's original work and that it had been 'often used during preparation of the motion pictures.' The defendants tried, on several occasions, to have Stewart's case dismissed, without success". Ed Small also joins us. He has broken down the case in the short documentary film "1 Minute and 45 Seconds Hidden in Plain Sight". Topics Discussed: "The Third Eye", The Terminator and The Matrix movie series, the legal case, the second coming of Christ, evolution of consciousness, The Bible, philosophy and mythology in the story. In our second hour with Sophia Stewart and Ed Small we continue to talk about the case and where The Matrix and The Terminator stories came from. We discuss the philosophy behind the story and how many of the ideas that are contained in the movies where in the original story. We also talk about the plans that Sophia has to make a a fourth Matrix movie. Sophia tells us how she would like to see things turn out in the future related to these movies. Topics Discussed: H.G. Wells, the reality of cyborgs, cloning, man against machine, Matrix, soulless beings, programming, shifting consciousness, dualism, the architect, the oracle character, numerology, movie programming, future of humanity, Neo vs Smith, the roots of the Matrix, time travel and more.
