What popular films showed the problem of correlation the external world and dreaming?
The idea of an external world and dreaming has been the sole topic for popular films such as the Truman Show and The Matrix. In the Truman Show, like Descartes, Truman tries to uncover the truth about what he thinks is real and begins to doubt his existence. It can also be said that Descartes evil genius argument was also, featured in the Truman show as the director of the show placed Truman in reality like setting but it was all an illusion of the world. For most of Truman’s life, he was deceived by the director of the show, unknown to him. This makes Descartes evil genius argument more probable, however, why would God who is supposed to wish good on everyone deceive us. More, so why would God wish me to believe that I am dreaming when I am not. The film, “The Matrix “Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world”- Morpheus?
