Joseph Franz April 8, 2008 Eng-W 131 Basgier 2:30 Microtheme 4 Although both The Matrix and Blade Runner are filled with the theme of identity, The Matrix is about Neo finding his true identity as “the one” and coming to save the world, whereas in Blade Runner Deckard is searching to find out whether he is a replicant approaching the end of his four years or a human. Turkle, Sherry. “Cyberspace and Identity.” Readings for Analytical Writing . Eds. Christine Farris et all. Boston: Bedford St. Martin, 2008. 524-31. Cyberspace allows us to see how people create several identities, as well as the ability to shift between the identities. Cyberspace exemplifies the shift in identity that already exists in broader culture. The internet allows us to express identity or identities that may or may not be true. The matrix is all one big computer program where artificial intelligence has the power to give people whatever identity that they want. The agents have the ability to switch their identity whenever they want.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
