The matrix fits somewhere between Transhumanism and the Singularity. While it delves into the machine world in a way no movie has before, it also delves into what it means to go beyond the normal definition of what it means to be human. I with there were more movies like the matrix series that combine an entertaining story with a deeper examination of some of the tougher topics we will face into the future.
Like it or not, I see it as inevitable that transhumanism will be part of the future of humanity. The question is, will it be our choice or forced upon us, like the matrix.
