The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 

I disagree. This is just a non-functioning brain. Thoughts, feelings, etc. are processes that arise from a living, properly functioning brain. This one is dead and thus represents nothing more than a lump of human tissue. It’s like if you hold my amputated arm in your hands, and you exclaim that you hold my entire sex life.

All scenes that take place within the Matrix have a green tint, as if watching them through a computer monitor, while scenes in the real world have normal coloring. The fight scene between Morpheus and Neo, which is neither in the real world nor in the Matrix, is tinted yellow.
